Here’s what we know about Carol and Dave ahead of Monday’s episode. (Warning: this article will explore some light spoilers for tonight’s episode of Hoarders as we dissect the promos, so turn back now if you don’t want anything ruined for you!)

Carol Threatens to ‘Slap the Face Off’ of One of the Cleaners During Tonight’s Season 11 Premiere

Sneak Peek — A&E’s “Hoarders” Returns Monday, July 20 at 8pm ET/PT | A&ETune in to Hoarders, Mondays at 8/7c on A&E, and stay up to date on all of A&E's premieres at Returning for its 11th season, the Emmy-nominated and Critics Choice Television Award-winning series, Hoarders, features a team of experts working to tackle some of the biggest, most extreme, and most challenging hoards in America.…2020-07-13T21:25:02Z

In the clip above, Carol admits that the house she and her husband live in used to be beautiful, but it’s fallen into disarray due to Carol’s hoarding addiction. “It’s a beautiful house and right now it’s in chaos,” Carol says, while her husband adds, “Sad is the condition of my house. Carol brings things in, but very little of it leaves.”

Although Carol knows her hoarding has become a problem, she doesn’t seem to care that it’s affecting her loved ones. “You know what? I don’t give a f–king rat’s ass. I don’t owe anybody anything, and that includes Dave,” she says in the promo, as the cameras pan over teetering piles of garbage, boxes filled with years of collected items, and mountains of junk littering the home.

A woman can be heard saying in a voiceover that Carol is “supposed to be taking care of [Dave]” and that he’s become “like a prisoner” to her addiction. “That’s not right to let another human being live like that,” Dave’s daughter says, while Carol adds, “At this point, I don’t even care, and that’s how I feel.”

It’s clear Carol is going to be combative and unreliable during tonight’s episode, as she can be seen throwing a fit when someone throws away an old chair. “How come they’re throwing away furniture? Why?” she shouts at one of the cleaners. Dr. David Tolin, one of the therapists featured on the show, says that it’s “going to be a long day” if Carol continues having such an emotional reaction to their work.

Another clip shows Carol yelling at the cleaners to leave behind certain items, despite their best efforts to help clear out the hoard. Carol goes so far as to threaten to hit one of the cleaners if she tries to throw out an item, telling her “don’t you touch it or I’ll slap your face off,” so it looks like the cleaners and the therapists have their work cut out for them tonight.

Dave’s Son’s Friends Are Horrified By the State of Carol & Dave’s Home

In another sneak peek of the premiere episode, Dave’s son Kevin’s friends, who grew up visiting Dave and Carol’s home while they were still in school, come by to visit and are horrified by what they see. The clip above shows Kevin walking them through the house while explaining that his elderly father is literally being buried alive by Carol’s hoard.

“I’ve known Kevin since we were actually sophomores in high school and [the house] has drastically changed,” Kevin’s friend Cory says in the clip. “I’m used to seeing this home just totally immaculate, nothing out of place and then we walk in and there’s things everywhere.”

Steve, another friend of Kevin’s from school, is also astonished at the state the house is in. “I think the most shocking things about going in the house today was you couldn’t move. I couldn’t believe what I saw, it was such a train wreck I guess is a good way to put it.”

New episodes of Hoarders air Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on A&E. In the meantime, you can keep up with all the latest in TV coverage and entertainment news here.

Ok she doesn’t live there so why does she get a say in any of the clean up? she basically left him there with all his health problems to deal with the BS. That’s just terrible, and she still didn’t stay in the end!

I was pissed off the entire episode with carol. She is a nasty woman and she stole everything from right under that family. They are nice people and were very gracious to welcome her to stay and give her yet another chance after all the damage carol single handedly caused. I bet she never loved Dave and was only using him. She was emotionless when it came to his health. If I were one of Dave’s children, first of all, carol wouldn’t have been able to use and financially abuse Dave the way that she had. I would have picked her up from that front porch, rocking chair and all and threw her off the property. She sold Be’s antique car and her most valuable possessions yet she is giving the family and cleanup people a hard time about literally TRASH. I was livid throughout the entire episode! I wouldn’t have tried to reason with her, tried to treat her hoarding disease or asked her to stay. Everything would be thrown out EVEN HER!

Personally I think everyone shouldn’t have been walking around making sure they didn’t want to hurt Carol and they shouldn’t have. Carol’s stepdaughter was awesome for telling Carol the truth . I feel so bad for Be’s family. I know what it’s like to find my mom dead when I was 10 n my father marrying a woman in the same church as my family, within a years time. My father gave all my moms things away and didn’t give my sister, brother or me a say so in it. So I don’t think that Carol had no right to anything but the clothes on her back, n send her on her way. Dave n the kids had every right to take back their home n get rid of all what Carol has bought and brought into the home. Considering that Carol had site’s on Be’s family before Be took her own life. Actually, it should be that Carol came into that family to supposedly to help Dave out with Dave’s loss n ended up moving right in n never left and marrying into the family n taking over. She came in with nothing n she by all rights should leave with nothing. That’s how it should go. But ofcourse a sycopath usually destroys everything before getting what a sycopath gets what they want A CAROL!!!!
