Olivia’s non-existent relationship with her husband’s parents, her desire to move away from Cairo and the resulting conflict with Ethan have been prominent stories in Welcome to Plathville Season 3. After almost stopping earlier in the season, the couple has decided that in order to save their marriage, they need to move.
In a clip from the 2-hour season finale shared with Us Weekly, Ethan and Olivia drive to his parents’ home. Olivia has not spoken to her in-laws for years, but she wants one last conversation to “tie loose ends.”
But as they get closer to the Plath family home, Olivia begins to question her decision. “Maybe I shouldn’t do this,” she says. “Why am I doing it again?”
“I haven’t seen their faces in two years and their faces haunt my dreams,” she adds.

For Olivia, the painful conversation with Kim and Barry is about putting the past behind her. “I want closure,” she says in a clip shared by People. But when she announces her plan to have one last conversation with Ethan’s parents, he’s not exactly thrilled.
“It seems like every time something like this happens, it blows up,” he says.
“I know you go over there with good intentions,” he says to his wife in a confession, before warning her to be careful around his parents. “I’m good at letting things be the way they are. But if you have to do it, if it’s the right thing to do, then do it. Just take care of your back.”
Moriah Plath also says goodbye in the next episode of ‘Welcome to Plathville’
Ethan and Olivia are not the only members of the Plath family moving forward. A teaser for the season 3 finale (via Twitter) also shows Ethan’s younger sister Moriah Plath getting ready to leave.
“I’m here to say goodbye to my whole family,” she says. And it looks like her brother Micah is leaving with her. We see footage of the siblings’ empty house and of Moriah closing the door on a U-Haul.
How will Kim and Barry react to their older children withdrawing even further away from them? It’s hard to say, but Kim seems to realize that her relationship with her children may be impossible to repair. “They just want away from us,” she says.
