Season 1, Episode 10
The outside world is creeping into the lives of the colony members as Wesley seeks to dispel long-held Hutterite stereotypes and Claudia contemplates applying to college and leaving the colony for good. After Wesley gives a tour of the colony to some ill-informed young adults he makes it his mission to spread the truth about Hutterite beliefs and traditions. Wesley decides that giving a presentation at the local university would be a good start to spread awareness to open-minded young adults. Meanwhile, Claudia and Lori contemplate their futures and their desire to attend college. After a tour of the local university, Claudia and Lori take home applications but vow to keep it a secret because the ramifications for going away to college would be severe-they would have to leave the colony and make a lot of people very angry.

Season 1, Episode 9
Toby is faced with the toughest part of his job, around-the-clock care for the newborn cows during calving season. The colony can't afford to lose any cows so it's up to Toby, the cattle boss, to keep the newborn calves alive. Toby reaches out to Clinton for help, but Clinton resents taking orders from anyone. He's more concerned with partying and sleeping until noon than doing colony work and taking on any responsibilities. Toby is frazzled as he spends night and day with the calves at the neglect of his own family. If Toby can’t keep these cows alive, the colony won't make the money they so desperately need. Meanwhile, Claudia is feeling neglected because Bertha never spends mother-daughter time with her anymore. When Claudia and Bertha make plans on the same night as Carver's last basketball game, Bertha will have to choose between her two children. Clinton continues to act irresponsibly and when he gets arrested for driving without a license his mother decides she must act and kicks him out of the house.
