Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” featured the family prepping for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to move into the main house. Bruce JennerKendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner aren’t pleased with the amount of commotion going on, but Kris Jenner isn’t listening to their complaints.

Meanwhile, Brody Jenner and Brandon Jenner go undercover to install a putting green at the house for their dad (without telling Kris), while Khloe Kardashian attempts to take sexy anniversary pictures for husband Lamar Odom. Neither plot goes quite as planned.

Here’s what went down…

Kris Sends the Jenners Packing to Malibu
Jenner Manor is in total disarray in anticipation of the arrival of Kim, Kanye and not-yet-born baby North West, who are moving in with the family since their new home isn’t ready yet. Bruce, Kendall and Kylie, who actually live in the house and aren’t just using it as a lodge, have had enough and start complaining to Kris about the noise and lack of space.

Bruce points out the obvious and asks why Kim can’t just move into a rental house while she waits for her palace with Kanye to be done. “Certainly, Kim has the means to do what she needs to do. She doesn’t need to be back here. It’s like this house isn’t even our own. I’m not even gonna have the little space that I have now. I’m just getting tired of it. There’s nothing for me here,” he huffs. Kris initially ignores Bruce’s pleas and resists the idea, noting that she only has a few months left with Kendall before she turns 18. After she finds Kylie eating lunch in a car because of all the noise, movers and assistants milling around the house, Kris cracks and decides to take action to make her family happy.

Her solution? Rent a beach house in Malibu. No, not for Kim and Kanye … for Kendall, Kylie and Bruce. Kris picks out, leases and completely decorates the new house — complete with a sexy photo of herself in a bikini in the bedroom — without informing Bruce of anything. She invites family and friends over for a pre-house warming party, which also doesn’t include Bruce. Kris’s mother attends and asks the question on everyone’s mind: “What the hell is going on?” Because honestly, wouldn’t it have been easier for Kim, Kanye and the baby to move into a rental? Didn’t Bruce suggest that 20 minutes ago? Is Kim the only one that matters in this family? WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

Bruce’s Putting Green Makes Kris Blue
Brody and Brandon decide they need permission from all the kids in order to install a putting green at Kris and Bruce’s house, an idea Kris has been against for years. The brothers gather Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and more of the Jenner/Kardashian siblings — except for Kendall and Kylie, the only two that actually live in the house where the putting green will exist — for dinner to reveal their plot. The entire group signs a virtual video petition signaling their blessing for the backyard golf area, reasoning that if the entire family is in agreement, Kris can’t complain. Kim even agrees to invite Kris to Paris to get her out of the house while they install the putting green. The secret plan is full-steam ahead!

Until it’s not. Bruce tries to put the brakes on the putting green as soon as he finds out about Kris’s beach house surprise. He admits that he is terrified of facing the wrath of his wife if she finds out about the secret plan. Brody and Brandon agree to stop the construction but realize it will be tough to reverse the work that has already been done in the yard before Kris returns from Paris. The boys, joined by Khloe and Bruce, rush against the clock to fix the mess. Unfortunately, Kris gets home early and walks smack into the construction site. Predictably, she isn’t happy and immediately starts in on Bruce for constantly acting like a victim in front of the kids.

“You’re manipulating this whole situation,” Kris yells. “You have made not only your kids feel sorry for you, but you’ve made my kids feel sorry for you by the way that you’ve painted a picture of me.” The kids are visibly uncomfortable, and honestly, so am I. Bruce initially inches away, but then he decides to confront Kris head on and let her know that he doesn’t think their relationship is fair. Bruiser tells her of his intentions to take back some control in their marriage. Kris looks befuddled but knows this hard conversation was bound to happen. Brody and Brandon apologize for going behind her back and the whole family kisses and makes up. But Bruce still doesn’t have a putting green.

Khloe Does Sexy Aerobic Moves in a Latex Catsuit (for Lamar)
Khloe and Lamar’s wedding anniversary is quickly approaching. Khloe reveals that she feels like the honeymoon phase of their relationship never really ended. “Our love is crazy … like the fact that Lamar can fart in front of me and I still love him more every day.” Ah yes, farting. The real sign of a strong marriage.

Khloe decides that she wants to pose for a “fun, flirty” photo shoot as a gift for Lamar to celebrate their big day. She decides to don a black rubber body suit (which looks like it came right off the set of “American Horror Story” Season 1) while doing acrobatic moves. She tries on the latex suit, and unfortunately it doesn’t have the sexy effect she was hoping for. “I get that I’m not Halle Berry, but that is kind of where I was trying to go,” she says. “I literally look like the penguin from Batman. I would probably be really fun at a water park.”

After getting made fun of by brother Rob Kardashian and later Kim, Khloe second-guesses her decision to take the sexy photos. She eventually decides to do the shoot and climbs into some sort of swing contraption. The spandex suit works out and Khloe ends up loving the pictures. She has them framed for Lamar, who also loves them, but wants everyone to know that their relationship isn’t only about sex. He says, “My relationship with Khloe, it goes beyond love-making.” Okay!

Mason and Penelope Disick Are Back!
FINALLY! We get a glimpse of Kourtney and Scott Disick‘s adorable kids, Mason and Penelope, if only for a few brief seconds. Penelope is rocking an adorable red outfit, while Mason is fashionable as always in blue shorts and a white top. True stars.

Next Week: A funny prank goes too far, Kim tries to wear a bizarre denim outfit and Bruce’s mother comes to visit – and doesn’t get along with Kris. At all.
