They also had a conversation about Odom's transfer from a Las Vegas hospital to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and his medical condition at the time.

"First of all, we had to find a helicopter that was big enough for him, 'cause he's so tall. Once they secured that, we took him upstairs on the roof, put him into the helicopter, and then I was sitting in the car waiting to hear when they took off. And as soon as they went back up into the air, I raced to the airport, took off, landed before they did, so I got to Cedars, met all the doctors, everyone showed up in the middle of the night, we got him settled, and then I went home."

Despite the grim circumstances, Kris remained hopeful.

"RIght now, they have to stabilize all of his organs," she said. "They wanna do another MRI, They wanna make sure that the dialysis is under control. 'Cause the strokes are debilitating. They don't know yet how he's gonna respond to all of it."

It was clear that Khloé Kardashian was extremely supportive of Odom, never leaving the hospital.

The episode also touches on Khloé's decision to temporarily put her divorce on hold.

"Lamar isn't really in a place where he can make these important decisions, so I think that it's the best decision for Khloé to make the best medical decisions for Lamar."

As well as Odom's potential legal troubles.

"But on the other hand, I don't know if that decision's been made. 'Cause they came to the hospital room and they served a search warrant, in the middle of his, like, dialysis treatment. And so, we said, he's having a procedure right now, you gotta talk to Khloé."
