When audiences of the show last saw the two on the show, they were very much still married -- though the two had already called it quits in real life by the time the first season aired. Season 2 picks up after the two went their separate ways, with the two discussing what really went wrong.
In new footage from the premiere, Kaitlynn met up with Brody at his home in Malibu.
"Kaitlynn and I, I think our relationship ran its course. After we had our split, it was obviously tough for both of us," Brody explained in a confessional.
"She got in a relationship with somebody and I didn't find out until I saw it in the press," he added. "After some time had passed, I realized this is where our lives are going, we're gonna be separated, we're not gonna be together but let's still be in each other's lives and still maintain a friendship and a love. And we've been able to do that."
As the two caught up, Carter said there's "been so much speculation about why we broke up" and thanked him for seemingly taking some of the blame with their friends by disclosing how his drinking had affected the duo.
"Granted, you drinking was not the only reason," she said. "I appreciated when you said that the other night and took some responsibility in front of everyone."
"I think there were certain things in our marriage that were driving me to drink more than normal," he replied. "The pressure of having kids, I honestly think that was weighing on me heavily and it was causing me to drink unhealthy amounts."
In her own confessional, Carter felt Jenner was making her into "a little bit of a scapegoat," but also understood that his love for her made him try to commit to getting married and having kids "because he didn't want me to go anywhere."
"The circumstances of what happened after our split catered to that negative s---," Jenner then told her. "The whole lesbian thing was gnarly because our entire relationship, you never expressed that you had any interest in females whatsoever."
