|Season||1 - 2|
Ethel is the former foster child of Kevin and Veronica, after she was removed from a predatory marriage with a 65-year old man named Clyde. She has four other sister-wives via Clyde and is later discovered to have had a child in the marriage, Jonah, whom Kevin and Veronica also take care of. Initially, Ethel struggles to fit in with her new surroundings, but soon warms up to Kevin and Veronica as well as the Gallaghers.
She later ends up running away with Malik after her sister-wives come to take her and Jonah back "home" to forcibly marry her to another man who also far exceeds her age.
