- "The Stanley Sisters" July 1, 2012 (2012-07-01) 1.23[28]
This special revolves specifically around the Stanley Sisters: Kayla, Nettie, Mellie, and Laura. Nettie is struggling with her younger sister Mellie working at a strip club and thinking of it as shaming the family. Nettie is also worried about her 14 year old daughter, Nukkie, running off to Princeton, West Virginia with a 17-year old boy named Pookie and tried to hunt her down but ended up with her daughter, Dallas, and Kayla fighting with the boys family. Kayla is busy planning her son's baptism celebration party. Laura helps Nettie look for Nukkie. Mellie is angry when Nettie and her daughter-in-law Lottie comes to her work and confronts her working at the strip club.
- "The Aftermath" July 1, 2012 (2012-07-01) 1.14[28]
All of the Stanley sisters, except Laura, come together to discuss the past season. The first topic on the able was the aftermath of Heath and Alyssa's wedding, Mellie explains that she hates Alyssa and wants to attack but rises above the situation and pretends that she does not exist. Nettie states that Alyssa was welcome to be a Stanley but claimed Alyssa spreading false information about her. Alyssa declined the invitation to the reunion but was given an exclusive interview to express herself to the Stanleys. Heath and Alyssa's marriage lasted over a month, Alyssa reconciled and moved back in with her parents to take care of her baby boy. Alyssa feels Heath is a bad influence on her son thus the reason for the divorce. Later, the girls pick out their favorite wedding dresses that have been worn throughout season one. Nettie and Nukkie have reconciled so Nukkie now lives with her mom again. Nettie accepts Pookie and agrees to let them date as long as them dating leads to marriage. Nettie and Mellie's relationship is tested with the aftermath of the confrontation regarding Mellie working as a stripper. Ellen K declares the reunion as one "Big Fat American Gypsy Wild Ride".
