With Roberta stuck in Brazil, she’s not too thrilled about the Merrifields getting a third wife
Back in Season 3 when fans were introduced to Garrick and Dannielle Merrifield, it seemed like Dannielle wasn’t very keen on becoming a sister wife. When she saw that she had to divorce Garrick so he could marry Roberta so she could join them in the US, the stakes were high. Some of her fears were allayed when she met Roberta, seeing that the two hit it off, but there were still a few issues around intimacy, among other things. It looks like the tide has turned in Season 4 as Roberta is the one experiencing a surge of jealousy.
Regardless of preconceived notions, modern polygamy is not just about what the husband wants—he considers what his wives have to say, especially when it comes to building their families. Season 4 Seeking Sister Wife proves this, considering that growing a family is often a joint decision. But that doesn’t mean that everyone is always totally on board with the idea.

If anything, it has made her put conditions on Lea and Garrick’s relationship, the most important being that she doesn’t want them to be intimate or to feel affectionate. In the preview clip for Episode 2 of Season 4, Dannielle and Lea sit down and discuss the problem. Lea points out to Dannielle that Roberta hasn’t welcomed her or even tried to get to know her. The way Dannielle sees it is that she has overcome the insecurities she faced when she met Roberta, but speculates that Roberta is now going through those issues herself. While Garrick tries to calm Roberta down over a video call, it doesn’t seem to help much as she’s clearly upset about the issue.
