'Duck Dynasty' Recap: Rebecca Robertson Introduced; Si Has The Flu
Duck Dynasty returned on Wednesday night for its season five premiere, which introduced a new face in Rebecca Robertson and featured two new episodes.
Meet Rebecca Robertson
Rebecca, who was adopted by Willie and Korie 10 years ago, won them over when they fostered while she was an exchange student. Now 24, she’s flying back to Louisiana after spending two years interning in fashion in Los Angeles.
When Willie and his son John Luke pick her up at the airport, she gives her dad a pair of fashion-forward jeans.
While Korie and the women decorate the home for Rebecca’s homecoming party, Willie worries about Rebecca never moving back out of the house once she settles in and compares her to Jep. When Jase hears Jep’s wife Jessica complaining that none of the men are helping decorate, he shares with her his own brand of party wisdom.
“If you're discussing the decorations, I guarantee you that was a bad party,” Jase said. “If you want to make a party work… all the Roberstons need is about 30 to 40 pounds of meat stewing in a vat.”
Uncle Si Has The Flu
Phil, making his first TV appearance since his inflammatory GQ article, had his hands full with a sick Uncle Si. Down with the flu, Si tries to convince his brother that Airbud is superior to the Bourne movies, which Phil strongly disagreed with.
Willie summarized the day thusly: “Whether you're trying to pave the way for your kids success or you contracted the bird flu,” he said. “The good news in the Robertson family: Someone will always be there to help with open arms and unconditional love.”
John David Joins Duck Commander
Willie, always ready to help out a family member, takes on his wife’s cousin John David as his assistant at Duck Commander. John David doesn’t seem a natural fit for the duck hunting warehouse, and Jase is skeptical that the new hire will pan out. “I’ve been at Duck Commander for 30 years,” said Jase. “An outsider can't just barge in here and start ordering my team. You've got to earn our respect. Willie doesn't need any help around the office,” he continued. “I'm not even real sure what he does.”
By the end of the day, John David wins them all over with a new basketball and his affinity for Jack Black movie Nacho Libre.
Duck Dynasty airs Wednesdays on A&E at 10/9c.
