Katherine Returns

November 26, 2007

Dr. Phil follows up with a family terrified for the safety of their loved one, Katherine, a young woman who flew to the Middle East to be with Abdullah, whom she met online. Get caught up on what you missed in Part 1 and Part 2.

 

 

Getting Katherine Home

Immediately after her talk with Dr. Phil, Katherine breaks her promise that she'll head back to the States in two days. After two failed attempts to get her on a plane, find out what finally brings Katherine home. 

 

Why didn't her mother and sister meet her at the airport?

 


 

Family Friction

Her mom, Shawn, and her sister, Mary, don't receive Katherine warmly upon her return, despite their overwhelming relief at having her back. Dr. Phil doesn't mince words when he tells Katherine what she has put everyone through.

 

"I think I'm entitled to the truth!"

 


 

A Change of Heart?

Now that Katherine has been away from Abdullah, learn what she says life was really like with him. Is she having a change of heart about the man she flew halfway around the world for?  

 

"Abdullah has left me 34 voicemails within an hour."

 


 

Cutting All Ties

Abdullah joins the conversation via satellite. Dr. Phil helps Katherine tell Abdullah the truth about her feelings for him. When Abdullah responds in anger, Shawn speaks up in defense of her daughter.  

 

"I'm so glad you're not in front of my face right now because they'd have to take me to jail."
