Kendall Jenner ‘always had this rule’ about boyfriends appearing on KUWTK says executive producer

After 14 years, 20 seasons, and 268 episodes, the Kardashian-Jenner gang bid a bittersweet farewell to their fans on Thursday night with the emotionally charged finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. 

The episode titled ‘The End P.2’ shows the famous family take one last trip for the series to Lake Tahoe, staying at a lush 15-acre estate, costing $6,000 a night, which took place before Christmas last year.

In the final show, Kim, 40, confesses that she has turned to a therapist to deal with her martial problems with now-estranged husband Kanye West, while Khloe, 36, presides over a future in Boston with on-again boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

However, it’s Kourtney, 42, that kicks off the final episode as she gives ex Scott Disick some clarity about where they stand romantically.

The mother-of-three says she is ‘done’ with her family ‘enabling’ Scott’s wild behavior, alluding to his past excessive drinking and stints in rehab.

‘Scott has made so many life improvements, and he is such a great dad. I’m really proud of him, but the biggest thing is just having consistency,’ Kourtney says about keeping him on the straight and narrow.

Kourtney, Khloe and Kim are all seen in a bedroom together in their Lake Tahoe lodgings, discussing whether or not Kourtney would ever give Scott another chance.

But first, Kourtney asks her sisters to ‘stop agreeing with him’ and understand that she has set boundaries in order for Scott, 38, who is now dating Amelia Hamlin, 19, to learn from his past mistakes.

Later, Scott confesses to Kourtney that he could overhear what they were saying. It leads Scott to saying in a confessional that he is ‘coming to terms’ with the fact that he and Kourtney may never get back together romantically.

‘The fact that we have what we have is amazing, and I am grateful for that,’ Scott says, of their friendly co-parenting arrangement, adding: ‘Our kids are happy.’

Kylie, 22, is then seen joining the crew, prompting much excitement from Kris, 65, as the family sits down for a game of charades, acting out iconic moments from the 20-season show, including Kim losing her diamond earrings.

Adorably, the camera crew get a helping hand after the game, as Penelope Disick, eight, and North West, seven, pick up their own camcorder to film the family shenanigans.

‘No this isn’t Keeping Up with the Kardashians…’ People says, before North shouts out: ‘[It’s] Keeping up with the kids!’

Kendall, 25, and Kylie then exchange secret Santa gifts and talk about the end of show, with Kylie admitting she ‘can’t remember a day when [they] weren’t filming’ as they both confess to being constantly filmed by their parents since they were babies.

Khloe later says to the camera that she ‘hopes to have a sibling for True’ in years to come but added she won’t feel ‘‘incomplete’ if she doesn’t.

Talking about having another baby and a second marriage, Khloe says, sounding unsure: ‘I don’t know, I think I want to be married again… I think.’

‘But I also don’t think I need to be married in order to feel that this our union,’ she says to Kim, who is asking the questions.

She then makes a FaceTime call to Tristan, 30, as he asks her to spend Christmas with him in Boston, though Khloe is not sure if she can make it, or if she even wants to move there for the six months for the NBA season.

‘I don’t even have a place to live right now, so it’s the perfect time to move to Boston!’ she says jokingly, referring to the fact she is currently having her house built in the Hidden Hills area of LA.

Khloe says later that she is heading to Boston without True, three, because she wants to make sure everything is set up before they go out there to see Tristan, as she confirms their reconciliation.

‘The Pandemic can make or break you, and with Tristan and myself it forced us to have uncomfortable conversations,’ she says to camera in a confessional, hinting that they have sorted out their differences.

‘Now we’re best friends… I am definitely more open to a future with me and Tristan,’ she adds.

Filmed before his alleged cheating scandals this year, Khloe and Tristan reunite in Boston during the episode where they enjoy a meal together and talk about their future.

Proving that they both still enjoy a laugh with one another, they pull a prank on momager Kris Jenner, when they pretend Tristan’s elbow is someone’s butt and make sex noises in a bid to fool her.

‘You want to do the butt prank? Do my mom, she’s the easiest one,’ Khloe says. But Kris looks less than impressed when she answers the phone, eventually hanging up.

‘I’m traumatized!’ Kris says later when they call her back, with Tristan trying to laugh it off. ‘You scared the s*** out of me.’

Kim’s marriage breakdown takes center stage next as the group decide to get into a hot tub, and Khloe says in a voiceover confessional that Kim has been ‘struggling privately’ with Kanye for some time, as a clip shows her crying saying ‘I feel like a f***ing failure.’

Lightening the mood, Kim does a video where she jokes about being 55 when she watches the filming back, saying: ‘I will probably have a facelift by then.’

The budding legal student also says she hopes to have her own law firm by then, which she wants to be ‘super successful.’

Each member of the family is asked about where they see themselves in 10-15 years’ time, with Kim answering: ‘Oh my God! I am going to be 55 when we watch this?! Holy s***, I will probably have a facelift by then.’

When asked what makes her most proud, she says: ‘When I am really able to make a difference in someone else’s life – and I hope that one day, I can have a really successful [law] firm.’

However, back in LA, Kim is dealt another blow when she discovers she has failed her baby bar exam for the second time, will have to take it again in June 2021.

‘I feel bummed. Like, totally bummed,’ Kim says after she is seen excitedly checking the results of the test on her computer. ‘It is what it is, I just know I have to not stress about it.’

Khloe attempts to make Kim feel better by reminding her that while she did the test, she had her 40th birthday to organize, she had got Covid, and was going through difficulties in her marriage to Kanye, 44.

After the disappointment of failing the test, Kris decides to check in on Kim at her LA home.

‘I keep waiting for you to go “Mom, what are you doing? Can you come over and talk,”‘ Kris says, before Kim says she is instead seeking help with a therapist.

‘No, I am going to the therapist. I’ll talk to the therapist. Why do I have to burden everyone, I know it’s not a burden but… I used to go to everyone with all my problems, it’s draining. I’m like an adult, I have a therapist. Let me work on myself and see where I’m at.’

Kim gets personal as continues: ‘That’s what I am so excited for, just waking up at 40, and realising I just want total happiness. I know that complete bliss is not a full reality, but if I can have it more of the majority of the time, that’s all I wanna do.’

‘Wherever that takes me, I just want my pure happiness. That’s what I am working on, figuring out how to get there.’

Hinting all is not well, she adds: ‘I just feel like I’ve worked so hard in life, to achieve everything that I’ve wanted to. And I’ve lived up to my expectations, and achieved ten times more than I even thought was humanly possible.’

‘But I don’t have a life to share that with. Like I do, obviously my kids and everything, but am I just going to sit here and think OK my kids fulfil me, and I’m good, and then I never thought I was lonely.’

‘I always thought I am totally fine, I can just have my kids, my husband moves from state to state, and I’m just on this ride with him, and I was OK with that. And then after turning 40 this year I realised, like no, I don’t want a husband that lives in a completely different state.’

‘To me, I thought, oh my God, that’s when we’re getting on the best. But then that is sad to me. And that’s not what I want. I want someone that, we have the same shows in common, I want someone that wants to work out with me.’

Kim gets sombre as she recounts spending lockdown without Kanye by her side.

‘Every single day Khloe, Tristan and I would work out together at 6am, the three of us, and I was third-wheeling it for a good eight months in quarantine, and I was so envious of that,’ she admits. ‘I was like wow, it’s the little things that I don’t have. I have all the big things.’

Kim confesses that even though she and Kanye had fairy-tale experiences like their extravagant wedding in Florence, Italy, and fancy photo-shoots, she feels she is now ready for the ‘smaller experiences’ of everyday life with a partner.

Kris then gets emotional as she tells Kim, ‘I just want you to be happy and joyful. And I think I haven’t seen that in a really long time.’

‘It breaks my heart, because I just want them to be happy,’ Kris says in a confessional. ‘And I want her to be joyful and have the best relationship that she can possibly have. And she has four beautiful kids, and I just want them to be happy.’

Kim admits that she is currently ‘numb’ and says she won’t cry in front Kris, but says ‘I do know that I will be happy. I didn’t come this far, just to come this far, not to be happy. Remember that.’
