“Breaking Amish” Episode # 8.

 This week on “Breaking Amish” everyone returned home and they felt like they didn’t belong and were nervous to face their families as they knew they’d be shunned. It was Kate’s first flight and she was nervous but she ended up enjoying it, Jeremiah said leaving home was the hardest decision he’s ever had to make and knows when he goes back his family won’t talk to him and will be  negative but that he also has to do what’s best for him,and  when he met his girlfriend she slammed the door in his face and he mused if Jesus could eat with sinners why can’t the Amish be forgiving if they’re supposed to be Christ-like and  Kate’s friends walked away from her as she approached them as she wasn’t dressed Amish and it made them uncomfortable and she said it hurt as she had grown up with them and she wants to persue modelling and was afraid to tell her parents as she knows they’ll be upset and they wouldn’t allow themselves to be filmed and they didn’t want to see her and wanted nothing to do with her and her family shunned her and wouldn’t talk to her and said she’ll go to Hell unless she returns Amish and if she keeps up her “English” lifestyle.

When Abe went back home he told him family he decided he wasn’t going to be Amish anymore and was asked why he was wearing modern clothing, he was nervous to face his mother and brother and chose Rebecca over the Amish and over his family and was told to show respect and wasn’t allowed to eat at the same table as them and was segregated to eat alone at a smaller table by himself as he was shunned and they refused to talk to him which hurt his feelings and his family also ordered the film crew to leave. Sabrina returned home in modern dress as well and didn’t know what to expect and when Rebecca returned home to meet her friends they ran away from her as well as she was dressed modern and no one was home at her house and the house was empty and all her stuff was gone; they had moved and no one had told her they’d left! She’d phoned a friend to find out what happened and she was told her grandparents had moved and now she’d lost everything; her family, her house,and her friends,so she called Abe, who came over to console her as they’re both alone and only have eachother now,and decided to get married and move to Lancaster.

Kate returned to NYC to model and went to the modelling agency and had 2 castings on the first day and she had a scabbed elbow from a biking accident and they were critical of it as she was “damaged goods” and compared her to a piece of bruised produce at the grocery store,and she moved into an apt. with other models and was told that 80% of the models don’t make it,and Abe and Rebecca met with a wedding planner and were dismayed to learn the cost of an average wedding costs 25 000 $ which is way out of their price range,and they discussed Amish-style weddings which they wanted mainly to have the Amish style meals and Rebecca tried on wedding gowns as well with Sabrina and said it made her look and feel like a princess, and she asked Sabrina if she’d be her maid of honour and she accepted and Sabrina mentioned her own wedding in 2009 but said that it didn’t work out and didn’t last long.(This is the first they’d mentioned about her being married, and Jeremiah mentioned a couple of times about his being married before too so maybe bit by bit the truth is starting to emerge about their pasts and perhaps soon they’ll mention about Abe and Rebecca’s baby as well?) and Abe  phoned Jeremiah as well and asked him to be the best man and he seemed surprised but agreed and said it was an honour and that he’d help him out any way he can.

Kate went to her modelling castings as well and got measured and had photos taken and was told by the photographer she had nice eyes  but was also advised to lose 5 pounds, and when Jeremiah went back home to visit his family he said he can’t stay and isn’t staying Amish but that he at least owed his parents respect and to tell them face to face and off camera. When his mother saw him approaching she shut the door and refused to talk to him  and his dad wasn’t happy but at the same time understood his need to do what makes him happy and what’s best for him,and he hopes to be with Sabrina. In the next episode, the finale, they go to Atlantic City and continue to sin even more by gambling and throw an engagement party for Abe and Rebecca and in the preview it showed Rebecca getting mad at them so I guess Kate and Sabrina must have gotten drunk again and pissed her off and it appeared that Sabrina has a new guy and Jeremiah feels she lead him on and deceived him…..


As well, Hurricane Sandy is even set to hit us here in Canada and we have weather warnings and have been advised to stock up on emergency supplies and to expect power outages, 100 KM/HR-plus winds, torrential rain and possible floods, and just in case I brought the chairs, hanging plants, garbage cans, etc. from the veranda indoors. Right now it’s 50 KM/HR wind and really raining but it’s just begun and they say the worst of it’s to come overnight and later today,so if you don’t hear from me in awhile, or if I don’t have a post up tomorrow you’ll know why! Stay safe everyone! This is one big bad motherf*cker and they haven’t seen anything like it!
