After Sister Wives fans watched the March 1 episode called This Land Is Your Land . . . Or Her Land?, fans were unsure how to feel about the status of the Brown family. The TLC family known for its belief in plural marriage does not make the lifestyle appear to be all fun and games. In the episode, the Browns visited their plot of land, affectionately called Coyote Pass. While there, two of the wives, Meri and Robyn, argued with Kody about where they would be building their homes.

Many fans took to Reddit and Facebook to snark on Kody's statement that fourth wife Robyn gets "table scraps" from the other wives. Robyn appears upset and tells Kody that he should stop saying things like that. At the same time, many fans were quick to point out that Robyn often appears to play the victim and makes it seem as if she is being forced to move. Reddit users even suspect that Robyn was the entire catalyst behind the family moving to Flagstaff to begin with. Is Robyn creating her own drama?

Robyn may have been the last wife to enter the family, but many people suspect that she is getting much more than table scraps. For example, Kody legally divorced first wife Meri so that he could marry Robyn legally and adopt her children. Additionally, many people suspect that the family patriarch spends most of his time with Robyn. How did she get these perks? Viewers suspect that Robyn has become very good at manipulating her husband and that the latest episode of the show was just one example in action.

One of Kody's major beefs with Meri was the fact that she was wishy washy about where she wanted to live. Viewers pointed out that Robyn was equally unsure about where she wanted to live, but she did not get called out by Kody.

Viewers also pointed out that Robyn left during her argument with Meri but quickly returned to the property as soon as Meri left. A lot of people found this tactic terribly manipulative, and some say it allowed Robyn to act more like a victim.

Several conspiracy theories emerged in the wake of the argument that appeared on TV. Some argued that Robyn and Kody are working together to get Janelle and Christine to turn on Meri and essentially force her out of the family. Some others pointed out that Meri has also been catered to by the family for many years, and that she is the one with manipulative tendencies.

Regardless of who viewers perceive to be manipulative in this situation, it is clear that there are many opinions about the Brown family and each member's role.
