Warning! The following contains spoilers for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode "Great Ex-pectations." Read at your own risk!
With the world still on lockdown when it was filmed, the final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been forced to keep most of its adventures in-house, which has led to some unexpected storylines. For example, the latest episode featured Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson on an expedition for aliens, and surprisingly, they actually claim they saw one.
After consulting with an expert on the matter, Khloé and Tristan committed to a night where they'd search the Malibu skies for life beyond the stars. As luck would have it, the two actually saw a UFO, though skeptics may feel inclined to question whether or not the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars actually saw what they alleged.
It's totally plausible the duo thought they saw a UFO, though somewhat incredible that out of everyone involved in the situation, no concrete footage could be obtained. Tristan didn't think to record the moment on his camera. Khloé claimed she couldn't get her phone open soon enough because she doesn't have face scanning activated. The best the series could provide was an incredibly out-of-focus camera shot of what the couple saw, which is pretty insane considering how they were specifically at the ready to document the event.
I don't want to say I doubt Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson actually saw a UFO, but I have to admit that a single glowing white light next to a blinking red light is far from evidence that UFOs exist in my eyes. In fact, that sounds a lot like what one would see if they happened to see a commercial airplane in the night sky. Of course, if aliens are so technologically advanced, perhaps an obvious disguise would be the best way to discredit the couple to their viewers.
There's of course the possibility that they were mistaken, which seemed to be the general vibe the next morning from the family when Khloé recounted the story. Fans may have felt the same, and perhaps that Keeping Up With The Kardashians was really reaching with its latest storyline to try and get content (even though that shouldn't be that much of a struggle) for an episode. That could be true, but it is worth noting that Khloé has been a known alien-believer for a while and has publicly documented past sightings in California.
The episode ended with Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson sending a recorded message to the stars via a weather balloon. Perhaps this will all pay off in a decade when aliens reference it during the First Contact, or at the very least, we could get a paranormal series starring these two in the coming years. I'd watch it!
Keeping Up With The Kardashians' final season continues on E! Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. ET. The family's final chapter on the network has been exciting so far, though those looking for answers on what went wrong between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West really have to read between the lines to get any real answers.
