Moriah had her share of ups and downs in 2022 both on and off the show.
Beginning the year on the heels of a nasty breakup with her first serious boyfriend, Max Kallschmidt, Moriah worked on herself and her confidence as seen on her Instagram. With Welcome to Plathville season 4, which aired during the summer of 2022, viewers were divided on whether to cheer for Moriah or shame her behavior. In the midst of the show airing, Moriah took a much-needed break from social media, citing the onslaught of fan opinions wearing her down.

On the back are fans who only watched Moriah as a brat in 2022. The first few episodes of Welcome to Plathville season 4 showed Moriah locked in her room after her breakup with Max. There was a clear connection between Moriah’s refusal to help Ethan and Olivia with household chores and finances and her irresponsible behavior when living with Kim and Barry. Ethan even called Moriah out on social media for unpaid bills.

A Reddit user commented on a post by laugh emoji 2020“I hardly recognized her… I don’t know how or why she changed a switch, maybe the breakup with Max. But I found her intolerable at the timet.” User Ilove polyester echoed these sentiments with a thread titled “Moriah is getting more and more annoying.”
