Lydia Plath and her eight siblings was reared with strict Christian Fundamentalist parents on Welcome to Plathville, and many believe Lydia has been indoctrinated over the years.
Each of the Plath children has reacted differently to their unorthodox upbringing, with Micah and Moriah Plath doing the polar opposite of everything they were taught.
Even as adults, Lydia and her elder brother Ethan Plath have more of their parents' lessons embedded in their heads.
Lydia carries a lot of weight in the Plath household since she was regarded as the dutiful kid who adored cooking and cleaning for her siblings.
She is embroiled in a lot of conflict, notably with Ethan refusing to interact to Kim Plath and not being permitted to spend much time with the younger siblings.
With Kim and Barry's surprise divorce revealed in Welcome to Plathville season 4, she is carrying an even heavier burden, and she has resorted to religion for solace.
Since Kim and Barry announced their divorce, they have both depended on Lydia as a mediator, and many believe they are harming her by treating her like a friend rather than a daughter.
Lydia has always looked to be the most overtly religious Plath kid, since she mentions God in several of her Welcome to Plathville moments.
She has continued to rely on religion for direction, but other followers believe that everything she does is because her parents indoctrinated her.
Lydia has released two new tunes, both of which are about her devotion to God. Her chat with Kim on Welcome to Plathville season 4 demonstrated how indoctrinated she had become as a result of Kim's brainwashing throughout her upbringing.
Kim has abandoned many of the values she established in her children throughout their childhood, and she has chosen to live an altogether other lifestyle. "_Lydia was spouting the trash that Kim taught them and now Kim is looking down on Lydia due of that," Reddit user r/New-Principle-3865 stated.
Many admirers of Welcome to Plathville agreed, with u/wholesome heresy saying, "She has a funny little theological reaction for EVERYTHING."
They are concerned that she is too reliant on religion and will continue to use it to excuse some of her problematic acts.
Viewers turned against Lydia during her tearful talk with Moriah, during which Moriah revealed that she and Max Kallschmidt had split up.
Lydia's initial thought was to inquire if she could still hang out with Max. Even after learning that he had kissed another woman while still with Moriah, she insisted on seeing him and claimed that the Lord wanted her to forgive him.
Lydia, fans hope, will be able to look beyond the curtain like her siblings by the conclusion of Welcome to Plathville season 4.
