Plot Synopsis

This spinoff of DUCK DYNASTY chronicles the lives of Jep and Jessica Robertson as they finalize the adoption process and introduce new baby Jules to their other children -- Lily, Merritt, Priscilla, and River -- as well as the rest of the extended DUCK DYNASTY family. The series opens with Jep and Jess discovering they are eligible to adopt a newborn baby boy, but they have to wait five days for the birth mother's decision to become final. Over the course of the five days, the program follows them as they prepare for the baby's arrival. They get some advice from Willie and Korie, Jess visits Kay for some of Jep's old mementos, and Jep and Phil paint a nursery for the baby, with the help of River. On the fifth day, they get the call that the baby is officially theirs and they leave to go pick him up. Then, the family picks up baby Jules from the hospital and has to make an emergency stop at the drug store on the way home for baby items. Back home, family members stop by the house to meet the new baby, culminating in a baby blessing ceremony performed by Alan and Phil. In the third episode, it's time for Jules' circumcision appointment, and Jep and Jess must have a conversation with their kids about what that entails. The family goes to the hospital for the procedure, which Jep and Jess use as an opportunity to film video diary footage; however, Jep quickly gets grossed out and leaves. The next day, Jess's friends throw her a baby shower while Jep decides to have a "circumbration" party with his male friends, celebrating Jules' circumcision. Then, Jules comes down with a severe diaper rash, which causes Jessica to forget that she and Jep's 14th wedding anniversary is the next day. It's been a while since Jep and Jess had some alone time, so Jep plans a big night of surprises for Jess which includes a party bus, dinner out, and an overnight trip to Shreveport. However, Jess is nervous about leaving baby Jules home with a babysitter for the first time, which causes her to change her mind about the whole thing. Jess promises Jep some "alone time" at home, which causes them to cancel their Shreveport plans and go home to see the kids instead. On Wednesday, March 9, 2015 from 10-11pm ET/PT, A&E premiered the season finale of JEP & JESSICA: GROWING THE DYNASTY, with back-to-back new episodes. In the penultimate episode (10pm), "The Glamper," Jep and Jess are going on their annual, adults-only camping trip with their friends while Uncle Si babysits the kids. Jess and her friends decide to rent a fancy camper so they can "glamp" in style, but Jep and his friends want to rough it in a tent. When cold weather swoops in, Jep and his friends begin to question their decision to "rough it." Back at home, the kids are unfazed as they watch a scary movie. Si laments how today's kids are desensitized and takes the kids to a haunted barn, set to prove he can scare them the old fashioned way. Then, in the season ender (10:30pm), "The Meeting," Jep is tasked with getting all of the kids to their dentist appointments while Jess is in Little Rock, pitching her jewelry line at Dillard's. When Jules' babysitter plans fall through, Jess is forced to bring him along to her business meeting. Meanwhile, even though Jessica warned against it, Jep takes the kids out for some fun before their dentist appointments, sure that he can fit everything into the day. However, when Jep encounters some unexpected delays, things take a turn for the worse.
