What is Micah and Olivia Plath’s relationship like now?

Before the end of season four, when Olivia insisted on her boundaries with Ethan’s parents and rejected his younger sister Moriah Plath, Olivia and Micah had a close relationship. In addition to being in-laws, they were also good friends, and there was a time when Micah, Moriah, Ethan, and Olivia were a close foursome.

“So you’re saying he can’t come here at all,” Ethan tells Olivia, to which she replies, “No. He can stay somewhere else, but I don’t want him here.”

Ethan tells producers that he hasn’t told Micah about “Olivia’s decision” yet because he hasn’t decided what he wants to do when his brother joins them in Minnesota. And it will certainly create an even greater gap than before.

Olivia and Moriah were once close too.

Before making amends with her parents, Moriah leaned heavily on Olivia to help her break away from her strict upbringing, and they were close friends. But when Moriah started performing live music and Olivia came along but refused to perform when Moriah’s mother was present, problems began to arise. Then Olivia and her family met on the anniversary of her younger brother’s death and things were still tense with Olivia.
