'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Recap: Season Finale

November 11th, 2013 9:18am EST
Can you believe it? We’ve made it to the end of another season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians together, but it seems like we’re the only people who made it out of the season intact. Hell, Bruce wasn’t even in the finale at all and there were zero mentions of baby North West. Raise your hand if you even knew that this was going to be the finale.

The last few episodes have made it apparent that E! and the Kardashians decided to rework this last part of the season around Khloe’s marital problems; there has been an awful lot of focus on Khloe and Lamar’s whereabouts – or lack thereof – to ...

Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Something’s going on with Khloe and Lamar, and the Kardashians aren’t privy to the knowledge that the rest of us in the ~ futuuure ~ have long since obtained. It’s painful to watch Khloe squirm as her well-meaning but obnoxious family members attempt to figure out “what’s wrong” with her, and ultimately settle on it definitely being that she doesn’t have a baby yet.

Rather than air her – and Lamar’s – problems to her family, and the E! cameras following them around, Khloe just gives up and goes along with whatever her megalomaniac relatives want. After all, these are the people who treat t...
