It was time for the "Breaking Amish: Brave New World" season finale, and it brought with it a bombshell announcement from Abe and Rebecca. They'd decided to move back to Amish country in Pennsylvania.
They weren't rejoining the Amish lifestyle, but they wanted to settle down in Pennsylvania. Abe's mom, Mary, was stunned. She'd just left the Amish and thought the whole family would stay in Florida.
"I have a lot of concerns about going home, because I know I’m definitely going to be shunned," Mary said. "It sounds like you’re throwing me to the lions.”
She said that it was Rebecca making the decisions. Abe responded, "I am married now, I have a family. It’s time for you to let me go, mom.”
But Mary stayed by her son, despite her reservations. All three moved back to Pennsylvania where Abe and Rebecca bought a house. As anticipated, Mary was shunned for her decision to go to Florida with her son.
But the story doesn't end here. There are two more "The Shunning Truth" specials coming over the next couple of Sundays. E! Online previewed the episodes and said that "the drama between Rebecca and Abe and his family is ... addressed, with Abe's mother, Mary, appearing during the special, as well as his brother Andrew. In fact, things get so heated that Abe and Rebecca walk off set.”
The following week, on July 21, a new cast of Amish kids are breaking out on the premiere of "Breaking Amish: LA" at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
