Well it is time for the finale of this trainwreck. I’m addicted and kind of wish it would just tape year round. I know it is wrong. I feel like we should not even be watching this. But I’ve been in it so long I just can’t turn away. All three of these girls have addiction issues either themselves or with their exes. It’s just crazy how fucked up their lives are. I wonder how much of the drug stuff is due to them having more money than sense?
Andrew has a two month project to produce in June and July and the plan is to take Amber and the new spawn out there. Amber seems to think she can take Leah too, but I don’t see that happening. Gary was miserable when Leah was in Florida for a week.
Leah cancelled her weekend with her mother because she wanted to go to a slumber party. Amber wonders if she should have forced her to come. Then she decides that maybe she can swap weekends with Gary. Amber seems to resent Leah as the reason she has to live in Indiana. She wants to move to California with Andrew and the new baby. She says she has to wait until Leah is at least in high school. Gary decides not to give Amber one of his weekends. I’m surprised by that. It seems petty since he has her all week. Later we find out that it has to do with his step daughter’s weekend visits. Amber still thinks she is mother of the year.
Bentley has told Maci that Mack is pregnant. Maci is worried about Ryan’s mental/drug status still.
Next we see Ryan looking miserable at Mack’s doctor’s appointment where they see the baby on a sonogram. Ryan mumbles that the speck looks like a boy. As soon as the doctor is done, Ryan says, “Alright let’s get out of here so I can go lay down, I’m hurtin’.” Did he pull a muscle or something reaching for the remote? How on earth would he injure himself? Apparently, Mack told Ryan she was pregnant by putting the positive test in his bag of fast food.
Ryan’s mom asks him if he is ready, as far as his recovery goes to have a baby. He says he thinks the baby will help him even more. My god this guy is stupid. Larry tells Ryan that they are all on the same train and when it wrecks it wrecks for all of them. Then he tells him he is proud of him and excited for the baby. How can anyone look Ryan in the face and not notice he is not all there. Ever. Either he is using or he is really brain-damaged. The lights are on but no one is home. Larry thinks Ryan’s story on the show is saving lives. Ryan’s mom is quietly weeping at the other end of the table. She knows. She has to know.
Maci goes out with her mom, Sharon to talk about Mack’s pregnancy. Sharon says the fact that he still refuses to take a drug test is suspect. Maci says she knows that he is using. Sharon tells Maci that she can’t fix Ryan and neither can his mother. He has to do it himself. Maci says, she has one life to live and she is not going to live her life this way. She doesn’t owe Ryan anything anymore and he doesn’t deserve it anymore.
Then we get a scene of Ryan high as fuck in the car with Mack driving and sucking on a lollipop like the father of her unborn child is not freaking the fuck out in the passenger seat. When they get home the cameras do not follow but they are both still wearing microphones. Ryan is still going on about how cold he is, Mack is snippy with him off camera and he says, “I just don’t know if I can do this with you for nine months.” She calls him an asshole and he says they need to separate for nine months.
Has spent six weeks in inpatient treatment in Arizona. She didn’t even get out for Christmas. That is a pretty substantial time to be in treatment. Watching Tyler wrapping presents with Nova alone is just so damn sad. A week later we see Catelynn driving herself home from the airport. How did she get that car? Why didn’t Tyler go get her? Tyler really hates driving for some reason. Nova greets her mother with, “Thank you for coming back.” I can’t with this family. I changed my mind I do need a break from this series. Tyler says he would have picked her up.
Part of Catelynn’s aftercare plan is to get a phone with no social media on it. That’s interesting. She has to see the psychiatrist that the treatment facility recommended. She’s going to ride her horse (oh there is another thing that Tyler is responsible for) and teach Nova how to ride.
Catelynn goes to see the progress on the new house. She looks just as depressed as ever. Tyler looks miserable still. Later, Cate is snippy with Nova and Tyler bites his tongue. Then, Catelynn tells Tyler that she is going back to the treatment center. She says she feels guilty about her anxiety. Tyler thinks he is doing something wrong. Catelynn says it’s her childhood trauma coming out. Tyler is such a good person. Perhaps too good for his own good. If six weeks of inpatient didn’t fix it, I don’t see how more of the same is going to help. She needs to go to the shrink in Michigan that they referred her to. Of find a place there for a few days and be half in treatment and half home and wean of the treatment. Later, Catelynn called the Arizona folks and they seemed to suggest something similar but Catelynn seems to want the warm weather and sunny skies of Arizona. Catelynn says she doesn’t want to switch meds without supervision. Tyler asks her to try out patient monitoring for a week and see how it goes. Catelynn just wants to go back to Arizona. Tyler asks how long they would want her for in Arizona. She says that is up t her. She is thinking six weeks. Jesus. Another six weeks of no responsibilities or deadlines seems counterproductive to me. Tyler has just mentally check out of the conversation. Later, when he talked to his sister, he admits he is pissed. Tyler tells his sister that he told Catelynn that he feels out patient is what is best for Nova and inpatient is what is best for her. Catelynn replied, “She’ll manage.” Wow. Tyler says it reminds him of Butch saying he did what he did because he knew they had a good mom to take care of them. Catelynn is not the only person in the world with childhood trauma. We all don’t get three months of basket weaving in Arizona to deal with life.Tyler is saying all the things he wants to say to Catelynn to his sister. He says maybe he is just not good enough for her.
Catelynn drives Nova to school. She asks if her mom is going to pick her up from school. Cate says daddy will pick you up. Nova says she wants mommy to do it. Hell, I don’t think Catelynn is even going to tell Nova she is leaving her again. On the way, Nova starts crying saying she doesn’t want to go to school anymore. It’s like Nova knows. My DVR cut off with Catelynn taking Nova out of the car. Honestly, I think I would rather you guys tell me what happened next because it’s too sad to watch.
