'A Quarantine Courtship' Recap

Counting On "A Quarantine Courtship"

  • The Duggars are recording their own show because the crew is unable to be come into their homes to film. 
  • “There’s a lot of fear out there of the unknown,” says John as the show opens. Jessa says that the Arkansas Duggars are experiencing a taste of what life is like for Jinger and Jeremy, who have to rely on video chat to communicate with family.
  • John bakes a cake for Abbie’s 28th birthday, which is a challenge because Abbie doesn’t eat sugar or gluten. She cut both out a few years ago because she was having stomach discomfort. The chocolate cake that John makes looks and tastes delicious.
  • Meanwhile, the other Duggars decorate their vehicles for a birthday parade. Jim Bob and Michelle drive the three-wheel sports car that one of the boys recently traded for. They show up at John and Abbie’s house with horns blazing and set their gifts on the ground. “It was definitely a birthday that I’ll always remember,” says Abbie.
  • On another day, Jana and the younger girls sew masks for the family. Jana says she learned how to sew from her mom and aunt. The younger girls are learning from her and have also attended a class in the past. They drop the masks off at everyone’s houses. 
  • In Los Angeles, Jinger is organizing the house. She packs up Felicity’s old clothes to send back to Arkansas for Ivy and the other girl cousins.  
  • Ivy is starting to walk, so Jim Bob and Michelle and some of the kids come by to watch her through the window. Jessa says that the boys have had some tearful, angry moments because they don’t understand why they can’t spend time with the family. “I wanted them to drink some water,” cries Henry when the family leaves without coming inside. 
  • Later, the Duggars get together over video chat to catch up on each other’s lives. The Vuolos announce that Jinger is 13 weeks pregnant. They have everyone cast their gender vote by completing a task, such as finding a pink or blue clothing item or food item. Before the Vuolos vote, the score is tied 14 to 14.
  • Jinger and Jeremy have a soccer ball that is either filled with pink or blue powder. Jeremy kicks the ball, and it explodes with pink powder. “We are absolutely elated that we are having another girl,” says Jeremy.   
  • At the end of the video chat, Justin joins from Texas and announces his courtship with Claire Spivey. “This is Claire, and we are now in an official relationship,” says Justin. He and Claire met at a family conference in spring 2019 and started a relationship several months after.
  • “We love each one of you guys, and Mom and I pray for you guys on a regular basis,” says Jim Bob as the video chat ends.
