Unexpected stars Jason Korpi and Kylen Smith have been controversial since Season 5 began. Fans have wanted TLC to take action and let Jason go from the series. After the latest episode, has the couple been permanently taken off of the show?
What Is Unexpected Waiting For?
When the show returned for the new season, it introduced expectant parents Jason and Kylen. He was in complete control of the relationship and it was clear Kylen had no voice. Jason did not feel it was important that she was around her parents even though she wanted to see them. To him, he wanted to soak up time with his friends before they became parents. He also dictated what kind of birth she would have as he did not want her to deliver in a hospital. It was vital that he was thoroughly involved with the labor so he felt home birth was best. This was against what Kylen had hoped for. Yet she always went along with whatever Jason said.
Fans started to see this as manipulative and abusive. No longer did they want this on their television screens so petitions started to circulate. The goal was to get him removed from the show and not get paid for how awful he was. Then, some fans reached out to the network directly. It was time to let Jason go but it appeared he was not going anywhere. Soon, it was time for Kylen to go into labor and things just got worse on the show. Jason watched her in pain while she sat in the tub or he sat by and ate as she breathed through the contractions. Finally, she had to go to the hospital and needed to get the epidural he did not want her to have. This was when it truly went downhill.
Gone For Good?
First, Jason was removed from the hospital room for his bad behavior towards Kylen. The staff believed he was not creating a peaceful environment for her. Last week, he was welcomed back as long as he was calm and nice though he continued to tell her how horrible she was because she got the epidural. Then, this week, the couple was gone from the show. The focus was on Jenna and her family reconciling. It was also about her decision to possibly leave Aden after he showed he might not be a great partner.
Is this the end of Jason and Kylen? For fans of the show who want them gone, it appears it was just temporary. The couple will be back to their fighting ways next week. They will be leaving the hospital and fighting over the proper way to install a car seat or something where Jason is angry. In any case, they are in the preview and have not gone anywhere. This may have just been TLC testing the waters without them.
