Episode four of The Kardashians is focused almost entirely on Kourtney and Travis' engagement, and the series as a whole follows their journey through fertility treatments and the blending of their families. While certain elements like their regular PDA (they kiss on a couch in front of their realtor, for one) or figuring out how to collect a semen sample from Barker can feel a little cringeworthy, it's pretty clear how much affection they have for each other.Furthermore, it's fun to watch their children, who range in age from seven to 23, interact with each other and the rest of the family — particularly during a dinner in episode six in which Kourtney's youngest child Reign asks the couple to please not kiss in French.Scott Disick, the father of Kourtney Kardashian's three children, appeared multiple times over the course of season one voicing his concerns about being excluded from family events in favor of Kourtney's now-husband Travis Barker. After Disick wasn't invited to the family lunch at the beginning of the season, the issue snowballed into a screaming fight with Kendall Jenner over not being invited to her birthday party and calling Kris Jenner mean for not inviting him to hers, both in episode five. While the dynamic between Scott and the family, given Kourtney's new romance, seems difficult to navigate, the narrative throughout the show quickly became grating. Even Kourtney voiced her issues with the way that her and Travis Barker's engagement episode incorporated drama with Disick. Kim Kardashian was initially coy when it came to her relationship with comedian Pete Davidson, which started over the course of the show's first season. Still, Davidson barely made an appearance in season one, showing up in a last-minute, off-screen, post-credits cameo in its final episode. Getting to hear Kim's perspective on how the relationship started — she got his number from a Saturday Night Live producer and was basically DTF (down to fuck) at first — adds color to the narrative that played out in public. And frankly, getting that information on her terms, and from her perspective, is pretty fun — even if it meant no Pete.In the first episode of The Kardashians, Kim's son Saint shows her a Roblox game featuring a recreation of her crying face meme with claims about a second part of her sex tape with Ray J. That incident spirals into a conversation with her lawyer about threats that there's further footage of her sex tape, particularly from Ray J's former manager.Eventually, Kim's ex-husband Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, shows up to her New York hotel room with recovered final footage of Kim and Ray J, personally picked up from Ray J himself in Los Angeles. The footage, Kim says, was not sexual in nature. While understandably emotional for Kim — particularly with reference to her children — the entire storyline is confusing. It's unclear where the threats from Ray J's manager came into play after Kim saw the mention of her sex tape on Roblox, nor if any of the threats were credible in the first place. Additionally, Ray J himself has taken issue with the way that the sex tape was folded into the show, saying in an interview with the Daily Mail that the tape was the biggest lie in this industry in the history of entertainment.Kim's ex-husband Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, appears very briefly over the course of season one of The Kardashians, although he isn't a major focus. And while Kim said that she's fairly protective of Ye on the show as the father of her children, she also speaks about how she's been moving back into her own style after splitting from him.In episode five of the show, Kim said that Ye told her after she styled herself for an event that her career was over and insinuated that she looked like Marge Simpson. Later in the episode, she speaks about her own anxiety over styling herself for public appearances. And by episode seven, while not explicitly linking it to Ye, Kim helms her contract for a Balenciaga shoot and exercises some creative control, using her own hair and makeup team. Early in the season, while Kim is preparing for Saturday Night Live and Kourtney and Travis are undergoing fertility treatments, Khloé makes the rounds on The Late Late Show With James Corden and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. There are appearances from both Corden and DeGeneres, the latter of whom shows up later in the series once again at Kris Jenner's birthday party. Furthermore, Corden is a partner in Fulwell 73, the production company that made The Kardashians.Amid Kim's preparations for Saturday Night Live in the show's first few episodes, Khloé's media appearances are more cursory than anything. While they're a venue for her to parse through her anxiety over some of the scrutiny that comes with being in the public eye, the small arc is forgettable and easy to gloss over. It's painful to watch Khloé and Tristan reconcile, build trust, and get back together over the course of season one of the show. That tension doesn't necessarily come from a place of judgment for Khloé, who Thompson has cheated on before. Rather, it's in resigned anticipation of what audiences knew was to come. News broke in late 2021, while the show was filming, that Thompson had cheated on Khloé with fitness instructor of Maralee Nichols, and the entire narrative is captured on camera. The slow build-up of Khloé and Tristan's relationship over the course of the season provided further context, and further heartbreak, to the sword that fell at the end of the season. It also gave further insight into Khloé's reaction to the news, and the toll that some of the public comments around her relationship with Tristan have had on both her and her family members.We don't see much of Kendall Jenner this season, to the extent that her most salient moment in all of its ten episodes was cutting a cucumber in a weird way (as well as a memorable drive to Kourtney and Travis' engagement with her sister Kylie in episode three). But the brief moments where the cameras do follow her are mostly inconsequential and feel like a bizarre diversion from the rest of the family. In episode five, Kendall and Hailey Bieber hit up Miami and get some nice IV bags. According to Kendall, she's a hypochondriac to the point that she's eating myself alive, thinking about my health. Later, in the season finale, she emerges from a hyperbaric chamber, saying that she has a whole room in her house filled with health tools. Kendall says in episode five that she doesn't want anyone to judge me for her focus on her health and the treatments she pursues. Even the specific treatments aside, though, the treatments are a mundane-at-best diversion from the family events that drive the action of The Kardashians, and Kendall's best moments come from scenes in which she's paired with other members of her family.Furthermore, the Miami trip was accused of being an invented diversion from Kendall and Kylie's presence at Travis Scott's November 2021 Astroworld festival where 10 people died in a crowd surge, BuzzFeed News reported. The Astroworld tragedy was not documented or mentioned at all in season one. Representatives for The Kardashians did not reply to Insider's previous request for comment.In episode seven of The Kardashians, Kylie and Kris go grocery shopping and pump their own gas. While deeply mundane, it's also extremely amusing, and feels like a joke that the two women are in on. As Kris says in a confessional, privacy becomes difficult when you're as famous as she is, and tasks like going to the store can easily turn into paparazzi frenzies. Watching them quibble over who gets to scan their card and insist that they want to push their own cart and unload it into the car is a delight.Go, Kylie, Go! Kris says, cheering on her daughter as she returns her cart to the store. Good job, Kylie! You're doing amazing, sweetie!It's a moment of genuinely funny levity amid the family's drama.
