– The Kardashians Episode 2 Recap Contains Mild Spoilers –
The Kardashians Episode 2 opens with the cliffhanger sex-tape reveal from the last one. We see Kim finding out that Ray J’s manager is vouching for an unreleased part of her decades-old sex tape from Santa Barbara. We see Kim freak out but, Khloe and Kourtney along with their mother provide as much support as possible.
Next up we see Kourtney and Travis go for a house hunt in Bel Air where they come across a property they really like. Living in separate houses, Kourtney states how the two want to explore their relationship more now and live together with their children and figure out things and where to take them. Khloe, on the other hand, visits Kylie’s home for a package with her best friend, Mallika but, is anxious throughout thinking about her James Corden show and how scary the internet has become and trolls just keep bringing her down. Malika helps Khloe gain confidence and, deal with her situation.
This is followed by a segment of Kim prepping for SNL. She obviously has the sex-tape scandal on her mind and, even though Kris tries to talk her into focusing on her present, it is really difficult for her. We also get to know that Kanye West flew all the way to New York to help her with SNL prep and, Kim speaks highly of Kanye’s efforts towards her, although the boundaries have been set between both about where their marriage stands.
Kim visits her comedian friend Amy Schumer in New York to go through her SNL monologue. The two sit and work as they have some laughs and emotional conversations.
On the other hand, Khloe drops in Los Angeles for the James Corden show and we get to see how her anxiety constantly bites her back. Kris Jenner walks in and tries to calm Khloe down as she gets into hair and makeup for the show. But it isn’t until James Corden comes in to give Khloe a motivational speech about how trolls and other people’s opinions do not matter by the end of the day that we see Khloe calm down a little. We see her go on stage in front of a live audience to film the show.
As for Kourtney, Kris’ visit to her eldest reveals the struggles Kourt has had with IVF and trying to have a baby with Travis. She talks about the medication and the side effects that put her in a dark place and, the internet constantly judging if she is pregnant or not. Kris shares her own experience of miscarriage with her daughter aiming to help her out in her situation and shed some light. The mother-daughter relationship turning into a woman to woman advice-seeking relationship is something extremely lovely to watch in this particular episode.
Khloe and Kris go shopping for rugs as the two are building houses next to each other. The two do an awkward ‘roll test’ for the carpet. Thereafter, Kris reads Khloe some fun tweets about her appearance at the James Corden show which kind of cheers her up. The two talk about the success of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and, how much the show meant so much to so many people and, how they are loved and appreciated by their fans.
We walk next with Kim Kardashian West, 3 days before the airing of SNL. Kim does her photoshoot for SNL and the pre-take with Halsey as her musical guest. We see Kim’s makeup artist and the team have an emotional moment about how far this Kardashian has come and, she literally went from being a nobody to one of the biggest faces in the world. However, with SNL hours away Kim is still sceptical about involving Kanye and, joking about their divorce in the monologue and rest of the show, which might just trigger Kanye and upset him. She plans to have parts edited from the script which she feels is over the top.
Meanwhile, Kris and Travis surprise Khloe with the news of Travis planning to propose to Kourtney after Kim’s SNL show. Khloe is overwhelmed and emotional as Travis continues to talk highly of Kourtney and how much he loves her. Kris chimes in about the ring that is ready and, how they are planning this entire thing to be a surprise. The Kardashians Episode 2 ends with the time rolling in for Kim to finally do SNL in front of a live audience.
The Kardashians Episode 2: Final Thoughts
The Kardashians Episode 2 isn’t as exciting and dramatic as the first episode. This one lingers mostly on the individual struggles of the older three Kardashian sisters- Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. We get someone to one time with them and, understand what they face as reality TV stars. However, Kris Jenner’s presence in this particular series looks more like a supporting character than the main Kardashian and, it would be fun to see some segments with Kris and Corey, and their relationship, jobs and how they perform in their own space.
