Quotes

Laurel and Steven (Sean Kaufman)

Steven is Belly’s older brother who, alongside Jeremiah and Conrad, often would share duties in teasing and treating Belly like a younger sibling.

Quotes

Conrad (Christopher Briney)

Conrad (Christopher Briney) smiling
Conrad (Christopher Briney)

Conrad was the first born for Susannah, and in many ways was like Laurel’s first born as well. After all, he takes from her in terms of being quieter than the rest, a bit nerdy, but recently there has been a shift. Formerly, Conrad was heavily into football, partly to impress his dad, but since he stopped playing football, he has been more solemn than usual. Which, considering how Conrad doesn’t like to be a burden, to the point of hiding he broke his arm in the past, so he wouldn’t take away from everyone’s vacation, him closing up is worrisome to Laurel and Susannah.

Additional Information

  • Introduced In: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Summer House”
  • Athleticism (1.2): Besides football, Conrad also likes sailing and came in second at a local boat race recently
  • Age (1.3): Despite how much we see him drinking, Conrad is only 17

But, while being the life of the party is something Jeremiah loves, when it comes to Belly, he is increasingly willing to be a bit more serious if she needs him to be.
