On Sunday’s season 14 premiere of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Kim and Kourtney Kardashian accompanied Khloe to visit her boyfriend in Cleveland, Kendall Jenner received backlash over a controversial Pepsi ad, the family was blindsided by claims in Caitlyn’s book, and much more. Get the full episode recap below!

Early in the episode, Khloe explained in a confessional that she’s been constantly traveling between Los Angeles and Cleveland for the past eight months while dating Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson. The reality star invited sisters Kim and Kourtney to visit the city for the first time and get a glimpse of her life there. “Because I’m gonna be there so much, I want you guys to have the best time in Cleveland,” Khloe told her sisters.

Later, a distressed Kendall called Kourtney to talk about the negative reaction to her Pepsi commercial, which was accused of trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement. In the commercial, the model hands a police officer a can of Pepsi as protesters cheer her on. “She really sounded like she was crying,” Kourtney said after hanging up the phone. Khloe added in a confessional, “Kendall’s intent is to never disrespect or offend anybody.”

Khloe, Kim, Kourtney and a few of their friends later hopped on a private jet to Cleveland, where they met up with some of Tristan’s pals. The group went out to dinner and played a game where they had to answer any personal question asked of them. One of the NBA player’s buddies asked Khloe when she was planning on having a baby with him, to which she responded, “I mean, I really don’t know. I honestly wish we could be together and when it happens, it happens.” As Gossip Cop reported, it was revealed last week that Khloe is around three months pregnant with her boyfriend’s baby.

Meanwhile, Kendall expressed her frustration over the negative reaction to her Pepsi ad. She explained she was excited to get to star in a commercial for the soda giant, adding, “I trusted everyone. I trusted the teams. But after I saw the reaction, I most definitely saw what went wrong.” The model added, “I was so stuck and I really didn’t know what to do that I completely shut down.” Kim called her sister to see how she was dealing with the fallout from the ad, and the model said she hoped the family wouldn’t talk to the press about it in detail, but was worried Caitlyn would blab about it during her book tour. “Caitlyn is known for saying all the wrong things,” Kim responded. “That’s just who she is.”

Back in Cleveland, the Kardashian sisters got a call from a hysterical Kris, who had just learned through the media that Caitlyn got gender reassignment surgery. The momager explained she was upset to discover these major revelations about her ex-husband along with the rest of the public, without being told beforehand. She then suggested the girls call Kendall and Kylie to see how they’re dealing with the surprising news.

Later, Kim was shocked to discover Caitlyn made several allegations in her memoir about their dad’s relationship with O.J. Simpson. Holding a copy of the book, she read aloud to sisters Kourtney and Khloe, “Robert Kardashian knew O.J. Simpson was guilty but joined the defense team to get back at his remarried ex.” She continued, “Robert told Caitlyn in secret after the O.J. murder trial that he believed his friend was guilty.” A shocked Khloe shot back, “That’s not true. Like, what?” while Kourtney offered, “It’s just wild.”

Kim went on to note that Caitlyn had given her an early copy of her memoir months prior, but “left out all these extra pages.” She further insisted their dad only supported Simpson because he believed his friend was innocent, while Kourtney added, “Like to sell a book, you’re gonna make something up?” “It is so shady that Caitlyn came over and gave me the book and then on the phone she said, ‘Well, the final version has a few more things in it. But don’t worry, it’s nothing about you,’” Kim said. “So she lied to me because that is about me if it’s about our dad.” Kim added in a confessional, “If you talk about my dad I will cut you,” before telling her sisters, “I have always had Caitlyn’s back, but she is a liar. She is not a good person.”

Khloe later gave her sisters a tour of Tristan’s house and they were shocked to discover she was basically living there too. Khloe showed them a closet full of her clothing and possessions, to which Kim said, “This is like official.” She added in a confessional, “It was a big realization that Khloe lives in Cleveland practically.” Kim then decided to call Caitlyn and suggest she keep quiet in the media about Kendall’s Pepsi ad to avoid making the situation worse. The former Olympian agreed she’d stay out of it, but Kim wasn’t particularly convinced.

Caitlyn did end up discussing the commercial in an interview, so Kim went to console Kendall when she got back to LA. “My dad doesn’t actually know what happened,” the upset model said. “She has no idea and she just like word vomits.” Kendall added, “I just feel really bad… I have no idea how I’m gonna bounce back from it. It feels like my life is over.” Kim assured her the situation would eventually blow over, noting it was her “first scandal,” but she’ll get past it. “This is just gonna be the biggest lesson learned for you,” said Kim. “There’s light at the end of the tunnel and it will be OK if you’re just honest and open.” Kim added, “I’m always here. I’ve been through it.”
