For some unknown reason a new episode of Teen Mom aired last night at 6:30 p.m. I almost told the DVR not to record it thinking at such and odd hour it must be some sort of social media version. But it looks like a real episode that will repeat tonight at nine before the new episode at ten. This makes no sense to me, but that’s the situation.
Chelsea has filed a court order to raise Adam’s child support. He has been paying the minimal amount allowed by their state since Aubree was born.
Chelsea and Cole are thinking of buying a house. I wonder what Cole’s job is. He seems a bit on the immature side. Later in the episode, they put an offer on a house. Chelsea tells her mom about the offer in a later scene. And she gets word that the house went to another buyer. I don’t recall ever seeing Chelsea’s mom before.
Jo is still doing his Eeyore impression. He needs some therapy or medication, or both.
Javi says he is not allowed to say where he will be deployed. I wonder if that is just because of the cameras. Kailyn says she doesn’t think it is going to happen. I’ve never heard of a deployment only being for six months. Well, sometimes they tell you that, but my guess is he will be gone longer.
They have a birthday party for Lincoln’s second birthday at one of those kid’s places. All I can think about is the germs all over everything. Ew.
Javi got official word of his deployment and Kailyn is a bit upset but she is trying to look on the bright side. Isaac doesn’t take the news very well.
Janelle told Barb she is not going to Ashville for Christmas. Janelle is hungover or something and has a huge abrasion on her chin from some sort of fall. The bun is screaming bloody murder and Janelle is in bitch mode because she let Jace and the new convict’s kid and his sister and her kid sleep over and the kids drank coke all night. Barb advises Janelle, “When Jace comes over, you’ve got to hide the coke!” Barb gets Jace the hell out of there. He is ill as a hornet because he was up all night drinking coke.
Barb is not taking Janelle’s calls. She doesn’t seem to want Jace over there with the new criminal and the random overnight guests. Meanwhile, the donut is eating corn and microwaved mac and cheese with his hands in the high chair. None of these girls feed their children properly. Janelle is blowing up Barb’s phone. Barb eventually returns her call and tells her she can’t have Jace for the weekend.
Corey has the girls and he makes them breakfast and gets them dressed and brushes their hair and teeth. This seems confusing to them. Then he takes them to school on time. The girls don’t seem to be adjusting to the structure well. Grace cries in the car with Leah saying she missed her. Ali seems to be happier with Corey, so Grace tattled that bit of news to Leah.
Leah takes the girls to the pumpkin patch. Grace loves the warty pumpkins. Corey is such a good dad.
Ali doesn’t like the new custody arrangement either. Leah says she misses doing the girls’ hair. When have we ever see her do the girl’s hair? Ali slept in her clothes on the couch. It looks like Ali is going to school with wet hair. SIGH.
After school, Ali has her first chorus class after school. Leah shows up with the youngest kid and FORGETS HER IN THE CAR before turning around to go get her.
There didn’t seem to be a whole lot happening on this episode. Maybe that is why they sort of buried it in a weird time slot.
On tonight’s episode, Chelsea gets officially engaged and Kailyn confesses that she had a miscarriage.
