“Duck Dynasty” season five is set to premiere Wednesday, and it’s expected to draw a huge number viewers, following controversial statements made by patriarch Phil Robertson around a month ago.
Two episodes, “Willie’s Number Two” and “Boomerang Becca,” will start at 10 p.m. ET on A&E.
The summary for “Boomerang Becca,” which starts at 10 p.m., is “when Rebecca returns home from her internship in Los Angeles, the Robertson family plans a big surprise party to welcome her back. But when Willie thinks Rebecca has no plan for her future, he becomes concerned, and decides to find out how Rebecca plans to earn her keep as a member of his household.”
It continues, “However, Willie is happily surprised to discover that Rebecca is a real go-getter, much like him. Meanwhile, when Uncle Si gets sick, he seeks the help of Ms. Kay to take care of him, but when Si takes over her living room, Phil takes issue with his new houseguest.”
And the summary for “Willie’s Number Two,” which starts 10:30 p.m., is “when Willie is looking to hire a new assistant, Korie insists he interview her cousin, JD. Willie is hesitant at first, but immediately hits it off with JD, who truly appreciates Willie’s sense of humor; now, JD just has to win over the Duck Call room guys, who are wary of having another Willie in the office.”
It continues: “Meanwhile, when Uncle Si spends the day over at Phil and Kay’s, Jep stops by with the kids to keep them away from Jessica, who has taken ill. To entertain the kids, Si takes them outside for a treasure hunt on Phil and Kay’s land. But, in typical Si fashion, the treasure hunt has some interesting twists and turns, leading them to the ultimate treasure–fun!”
Robertson was booted off the show by A&E, but the channel then withdrew it’s decision a week later, saying he’ll return for the next season.
