This week’s episode of 1000-Lb. Sisters is about to drop and fans are on edge waiting to see how the family vacation turns out. In addition to sitting on pins and needles to find out the details of Tammy’s latest tantrum, last week’s preview montage and the TLC website foreshadow a much-anticipated blow-out between Amy Halterman and her Sister, Tammy Slaton. According to TLC’s episode synopsis – the ladies’ relationship might just go nuclear. Read on to find out what “bomb” Amy Halterman is planning to drop in the upcoming episodes.
Amy Halterman Says She’s Done
Over the course of Season Three, Amy Halterman has been emotionally and mentally preparing to make a huge life change. She and her husband, Michael, have outgrown their tiny duplex apartment. As their one-year-old son, Gage continues to grow and become more mobile, the couple realizes that they really need more space — and they need it sooner rather than later.
Initially, Amy was hesitant about moving, because relocating to a new home means leaving her sister, Tammy Slaton, to fend for herself. Despite being on a weight loss journey for the better part of two years, 640+ pound Tammy has yet to meet the goals required for her bariatric surgery. In fact, her health over the last year has gone considerably downhill.
Amy and her three older siblings have tried to push and motivate Tammy to no avail. They knew eventually, Amy would have to make big decisions for her family and they feared that Tammy would not be able to care for herself without her sister living feet away.
While Amy Halterman feels a lot of guilt about the decision – Tammy’s lack of effort and respect for others has really taken a toll on their relationship. During interviews with the camera in recent episodes, Amy finally admits to being ‘done.’ She and Michael finally made the decision to search for homes, feeling that it was just the right time.
Amy Drops The M- Bomb
In tonight’s end-of-episode preview, we get an inside look at the action coming up in next Monday’s episode. According to the clip, Amy Halterman reveals to her family that she and Michael are officially buying a house. She tells Misty, Amanda, and Chris that they made an offer on a home they liked and it was accepted. They had an appointment to sign the papers on the home in just a few days time.
During the conversation, Misty asks Amy what is going to become of Tammy if she’s no longer there to help her. Big brother Chris chimes in singing “ward of the state,” referencing the fact that Tammy Slaton’s only option might be a nursing home. Misty agrees, saying, “that’s the only thing left.”
During the vacation, the siblings (minus Tammy) had several discussions about their sister, acknowledging the fact that she cannot be trusted to make good decisions regarding her diet, health, or relationships. Unfortunately, with Amy moving, the other siblings aren’t willing to stand in – they’ve all done it before. Tammy has burned all those bridges. Amy was the last stop on the train.
The video also previews Amy Halterman telling her sister that the time has come for her to move. Based on Tammy’s reaction to the news – fans worry that the situation is quickly going to get dramatic.
Will Tammy Spiral Out of Control?
As fans have watched the third season of 1000-Lb. Sisters, they were made aware that eventually, Tammy gives up on her diet. She also appears to start leaning into other dangerous, addictive behavior as well.
In this week’s preview clip, Tammy reacts to Amy Halterman’s big news. She says that she and her sister have always been really close. She gets emotional telling the camera that she’s losing her best friend. The foreshadowing for the upcoming episodes alludes to Tammy using her grief over Amy as an excuse to indulge in bad behavior. Viewers see Tammy partying with friends, drinking heavily and acting recklessly. We have also been made aware that Dr. Eric will visit Tammy at some point and she will reveal just how much she’s been drinking. Spoiler – Tammy isn’t a lightweight.
With all of the chronic health problems that Tammy Slaton has, fans worry that this turn to dangerous behavior might create a deadly situation that Tammy can’t come back from. Now, fans will wait to see how bad things get.
Will Tammy spiral out of control – or will she regain control over her life and fight to get better? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
