All good things must come to an end, and The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 3 is no exception. Part I of the two-part reunion aired Jan. 25, filling in some gaps, but all questions will be answered when Part II airs on Feb. 1.

This season was a perplexing one, filled with Whitney’s healing journey, mysterious black eyes, and the general chaos that follows Jen Shah's legal battle, which is a whole story unto itself.

To quickly recap, during season 2, the housewives were heading to Vail, Colorado, when police arrived looking for Jen Shah, who was arrested for her role in a telemarketing scam.

Season 3 continued with more legal drama from Jen, and she pled guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing in July of 2022. On the show, Jen talked openly about the mental toll her legal stress was taking, sharing that she was suicidal at one point after a fake Instagram account incident. (But more on that later).

Now, it's all coming to a close. Viewers can at least take solace in the fact that it's sure to be an interesting reunion.

So, Shah’ll we get into it? Here's everything you need to know, from general spoilers, to trailer deets, attendees, and more.

Who is in attendance?

The usual characters, of course:

  • Meredith Marks

  • Lisa Barlow

  • Whitney Rose

  • Heather Gay

And of course, one Mr. Andrew Cohen will be in attendance, too.

This time around, three "friends of the cast" are also in attendance, which almost outnumbers the ladies themselves (and is a first in the Housewives franchise).

Who doesn't show up?

If you noticed a big name missing from that lineup, you're doing some good detective work.

Jen was not, in fact, at the reunion filming. She released a long statement on her social media saying that Bravo asked her not to come to the reunion after she made it clear she wouldn’t be talking about her guilty plea or the ongoing drama surrounding her trial. Bravo maintains that she was invited and that Jen skipped out.

Since the reunion was filmed, Jen was sentenced to 6.5 years in prison in her fraud case on January 6, 2023. Jen pleaded guilty to participating in a telemarketing scheme that stole thousands of dollars from elderly victims in 2021 and will soon be starting her sentence.

Even though she wasn't at the filming, Andy Cohen is hoping to speak with Jen before she heads off to prison, per Page Six.

Where was the reunion filmed?

The gals switched things up and traded out Salt Lake City for New York City.

The reunion trailer revealed a lot.

A quick peek at the drama-filled reunion hit the Internet a while back, and from the looks of it, the girls will be going at it. The video shows former BFFs Lisa and Meredith arguing, along with cousins Whitney and Heather, whose relationship dissolved throughout the season.

What happened in Part I of the reunion?

A lot of things were addressed—like how Heather really got her black eye, how everyone feels about Jen Shah, the fight between Meredith and Lisa, and other drama.

What actually happened with Heather's black eye?

The black eye drama heard ‘round the world was, of course, dealt with at the reunion. ICYMI, Heather woke up from a night of drinking with Jen with a black eye that was swollen shut. She said she didn’t want to talk about it because she didn’t want to get anyone in trouble. Heather then proceeded to be very vague about the whole incident.

As it turns out, Heather doesn't remember what happened because she "blacked out," she said during the reunion, per Page Six.

"I woke up terrified. I had my phone plugged in, I was in pajamas,” she said. Heather also mentioned she was “scared” the other housewives would “rewrite the narrative” of what actually happened if they knew she didn't remember.

Jen Shah gets brought up.

At the reunion, Jen Shah's current legal troubles get brought up, and in the trailer, Andy Cohen appears to ask Heather about her statements regarding Jen's husband's potential involvement in the scandal.

"Why do you believe Coach encouraged Jen to plead guilty?" he asks Heather. But it's hard to tell how she responds based on the clip.

Lisa Barlow previously said she had "mixed emotions" about Jen's absence at the reunion, according to Life & Style. “It would be great to have Jen here just so we could talk through things and just you know basically get some closure.”

Whitney Rose, on the other hand, said she “was surprised because all season since she was indicted she claimed her innocence and screamed it from the rooftops" and that she “thought she’d go fight the trial to the end," per Life & Style.

Meredith Marks said she was "shocked" about Jen's prison sentencing, and that it wasn't what she was "expecting," the outlet reported.

Things still aren't good between Meredith Marks and Lisa Barlow.

...And she explains the situation in more depth during the reunion. “My issues with Lisa today have nothing to do with her childish tantrum. After Arizona, we were in a neutral space,” Meredith says in the clip, per BravoTV. “Shortly thereafter, I come to find that Lisa had removed me as a follower on her Instagram and was hiding her Stories from me.” Yikes.

Things got even worse after some Twitter drama where Lisa allegedly posted and misrepresented text messages between the two of them.

"I couldn’t understand the rationale and I thought, ‘This is not someone who wants to move forward with me in a positive direction,'" Meredith says.

Lisa, however, said she "didn't feel" like Meredith really wanted to solve things between them, and so, the drama ensued.

When does Part II air?

Part I of the RHOSLC reunion aired on January 25. Part II airs on February 1.

Will there be a season 4?

No official word yet, but it looks like there will be a fourth season. However, Page Six reported that there'll be some major cast shake-ups this time around, including the replacement of three current housewives. One of those will be Jen Shah because... she'll be in prison. And the outlet added that apparently Meredith Marks, Heather Gay, Lisa Barlow and Whitney Rose are all “safe" for now.
