(Newser) Jon & Kate Plus 8 premiered last night to massive hype, and—as promised by TLC promos—Jon and Kate “faced each other for the first time,” albeit not until the episode was nearly over, Us reports. In solo clips during the show, both spouses gave the tabloids fodder with lines like “I am thinking this possibly could be our last family picture together,” from Kate.

“I think it was good for them to see their mom and dad together in one place, even though it’s been tough right now,” said Jon of the sextuplets’ fifth birthday party, to which he and Kate arrived separately. The two came together for a dual interview of one question: “Do you know what the future holds?” The episode ended with their silence, the AP adds.
