Everything That Baffled Us on Last Night’s ‘Counting On’ Season 8 Premiere

ICYMI the Duggars, America’s “favorite” (bold word choice) fundie family, returned to television last night with the Counting On Season 8 premiere, “It’s All Greek to Me.” I think I speak for everyone when I say, “WOW, eight seasons.” It’s honestly insane that Josh Duggar didn’t crash this fam’s gravy train three years back, but the family will historically drop anyone in danger of hurting their reputation/paycheck. I feel like that kind of exile happened prior to this season, but my mind is fuzzy

Anyway, watching the premiere is both baffling because, well, it’s the Duggars, but also because it’s like stepping into a time warp. Like they’re actually real people so we know the ending to everyone’s season-long plotlines: Joy-Anna and Austin have baby Gideon Forsyth, Kendra and Joe have baby Garrett Duggar, Jinger and Jeremy have baby Felicity Vuolo…actually, wait, Felicity’s getting her own special. We all know the deal with Josiah Duggar, too, and that seems to be the starting point of this particular episode, with him about to court Lauren Swanson. Nevertheless, we’re going to take you back to a hefty eight months ago, and follow the family on their marriage-and-baby-making journeys.

Oh, and Kendra and Joe’s honeymoon is in Greece. The title of the episode, do you get it?
