While starting over may not be easy, Ethan seems more than willing to break out of Olivia’s control.
Welcome to Plattville! Fans understand how Ethan may have started to resent Olivia, especially after she started controlling him like his mother, Kim Plath. The couple is currently touring Europe and has been living in Paris for the last month. Although Ethan seems to be enjoying himself, the couple’s relationship is still a concern.
