Life in Flagstaff, Arizona hasn’t been easy for the Brown family, and with the COVID-19 pandemic rearing its ugly head on them in 2020, the trailer for the newest season of TLC’s “Sister Wives” shows that things are only getting more complicated and difficult for the clan.

In a first look of the new season, which begins Feb. 14 on TLC, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have only exacerbated the issues the family faced after their move—especially since they were forced to suddenly be apart more often than not. With their financial issues still weighing heavily on their minds as well, a divide appears to be growing that threatens more than one of the familial relationships. Here are five things we learned from the first look super trailer.

Coyote Pass Is Still A Struggle

When they first moved to Flagstaff, the family ventured off into separate homes, which was only supposed to be a temporary situation, with the land they purchased at Coyote Pass being split into four parcels for separate homes to be built there, in a situation similar to their Las Vegas cul-de-sac. However, years later, they have yet to break ground, and Christine in particular seems to want it to happen already. However, Kody has concerns because the family is not doing so well financially.

“Just because the houses have sold doesn’t mean that we’ve got money,” Kody says in the trailer.

The family’s struggles to find properties for themselves in Flagstaff have led to a number of rentals, as well as homes that were purchased when rentals weren’t available, something fans saw on the last season. If finances are still tight for the family, it could continue delaying their chances to build on the property, furthering the distance between them.

Christine Wants To Move Back To Utah

Possibly related to the fact that they still haven’t done anything on Coyote Pass, Christine also seems eager to make new plans for the future—which would include revisiting Kody’s initial idea he proposed in Vegas—a move back to Utah, which had been soundly vetoed since they had been chased out of the state because of their polygamy laws years before.

“Next time I see Kody, I’m going to tell him I freaking want to move back to Utah, even though the girls don’t want to,” she says.

The Pandemic Is Making Things Worse

The family was already dealing with issues from their mainly separate lives since they headed to Flagstaff, something Janelle notes in the trailer and indicates that she fears will get worse.

“Our family’s been feeling really challenged since we came to Flagstaff because we’ve had to be in four separate homes,” she says. “So, I’m getting very worried because it’s looking like there’s going to be even more separation.”

“We’re really acting like four separate families,” Robyn echoes.

Sure enough, the breakout of the COVID-19 pandemic does bring more problems, with Kody the only one traveling from home to home, keeping the wives and their children all apart from them.

However, even if they know being separate is best for safety reasons, the family still all have their concerns.

“How can we work on our relationships if we can’t even see each other to talk to?” Meri questions.

“I need my wives to stop complaining about this divide that we’ve got in the family,” Kody says.

One of the possible divides that’s a problem? One between Christine and Robyn, with Christine telling the other woman they don’t need to do things together, and Robyn expressing concern that she can’t trust her sister wife because she’s trying to sabotage her own relationship with Kody.

Meri And Kody Still Have Intimacy Issues

Despite it being several years now since their divorce and Meri’s subsequent Catfishing scandal, things are still rough between her and Kody, specifically when it comes to their intimacy as a married couple. While Meri seems eager to try and bring that part of their relationship back, Kody still appears to have some hesitation.

“Romance and sex are saved for people who are in love,” he says. “If Meri and I really wanted to be together, we would.”

“I can’t...I can’t make him love me,” Meri says.

Everyone Is Starting To Want Out

While Meri and Kody’s marriage seems to still be the one that struggles the most, it seems she might be the one least likely to want to leave though—with Janelle and Christine both hinting at problems in the trailer instead.

“Maybe there are some of us who are like, ‘I don’t want it anymore,’” Janelle says.

Christine takes things even further, crying to Meri after something upsets her and flat out saying she doesn’t want to be one of Kody’s wives anymore, but most surprising is Kody himself, as he says over a scene of a one-on-one date with Christine that even he sometimes wishes he didn’t have more than one wife.

“If I was a monogamist and I had one wife...I don’t know, maybe it’s a fantasy on my part,” he says.

“Sister Wives” Season 15 premieres Sunday, Feb. 14 at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
