Nathan and Jenelle keep taking care of Kaiser, but when Barbara says that Jenelle can take care of Jace for a night, she’s upset because she’s just too exhausted to drive to pick up Jace. Jenelle calls her mom and asks to talk to Jace. She asks him if he wants to come spend the night with her and Nathan, and he says that he does and would like for her to pick him up. It was actually a cute phone conversation.
Jace comes back to Jenelle’s house and he’s excited to see Kaiser. Jenelle says she’s happy to have Jace with her even if it’s just for the night. Everyone is really tired. Jace says that he’s excited to start school, and we learn that he knows how to spell his name. Jace helps Jenelle make a bottle for Kaiser, and we even get some footage of Nathan making a bottle to feed Kaiser in the middle of the night. All four of them are sleeping in one bed at one point, which I thought was a little strange.
Jace goes back to Barbara’s house. Nathan talks about hot wings and how they’re good going in, but bad coming out. Awkward. Nathan wants to have a plan for custody of Jace, and Jenelle thinks that they need to have a house first and be a little more stable, while Nathan thinks that Jace needs to get with them as soon as possible. Nathan thinks it’s the perfect time to get Jace back, and says that Jenelle is only letting her mom have Barbara because she’s brainwashed. Jenelle says that she doesn’t want to take Jace away in the middle of a school year because he would have to leave his friends and school, but Nathan just has no patience with the situation at all.
Barbara takes Jace to see the fireworks, but Jenelle is mad because she wasn’t able to do it. Nathan talks about how Barbara acts like Jace’s mom, not Jenelle. Jenelle is scared that when Jace gets older, he’ll think that his mom wasn’t around for the important moments, when Jenelle thinks that Barbara takes him to fun things to try and get ahead of her in things.
Kailyn is struggling with the fact that Isaac is gone for 6 weeks, and says that every time she calls Jo to talk to Isaac, she can’t really get through to him. Javi and Kailyn talk about vacation and the struggle of going on vacation without him. Kailyn says that she’s not sure if the 6 weeks during the summer thing is going to work, and that she’s sad that Lincoln gets his parents together, but Isaac doesn’t get his mom and dad together.
Kailyn goes on a college tour at Delaware State University, and picks up some information about some programs that she would be interested in looking at. The tour seems like it goes pretty well, and they even have a daycare building on campus. Kailyn checks out the mass communications building, and after the tour is over, she says she loves the school and will be there soon.
Kailyn, Javi, and Lincoln head to the beach for their vacation. Jo celebrates his birthday, and Isaac makes him a cute poster about how Jo is his favorite superhero. Jo’s family asks how things are going having Isaac full time, and he says that he loves having Isaac more. Kailyn has been checking in, and even though Isaac isn’t on vacation with Kailyn, Jo still feels pretty passionately about having his son on Father’s Day.
While on vacation, Kailyn and Javi talk about how much they miss Isaac. Kailyn thinks that Jo should have rescheduled his family event, and talks about how she doesn’t think the 6 weeks in the summer will work once Isaac is in school. Kailyn always worries that Isaac will have one summer when he doesn’t want to come home and talks about how the grass is greener on the other side. Kailyn hopes that Lincoln and Isaac are close enough that he won’t want to leave, but that when he’s old enough he can make the decision for himself.
Leah sits down with her step dad and talks about the whole situation with Corey filing for full custody. Lee doesn’t understand why the court would even consider giving full custody to Corey when he’s in denial about Ali’s medical needs. Lee says that Leah is the one that’s done everything for the girls, and that if she was such a bad mother, he should have taken her to court a long time ago.
Corey and Miranda meet with Corey’s parents and talk about the custody situation. Corey says that for the last year he’s asked Leah if she needs someone to take Ali to therapy, and every time she’ll say no and then not show up for the appointments. Corey says that any time something comes up, everyone thinks there are being personal attacks thrown around, but all he wants is what’s best for the kids. Corey doesn’t think that his kids are getting cared for the way that they should, but he’s concerned that if he gets full custody that the girls would resent him later on in life.
Leah and Corey have court, so her family is watching the girls. Aleeah screams at the door begging her mom not to leave, which is really sad. Corey and Miranda say that they’re nervous for the court date, but that all they can do is hope for the best. Leah’s lawyer says that they’re going to try to get her the medical decision making and more child support, while Corey’s lawyer wants to get him full custody.
Everyone heads to court and you can tell that things are just really tense between the families. An hour later, everyone gets out of court and reveals that they didn’t make any decisions today. The court appointed a guardian to figure some things out about medical issues, and that the next court hearing is about child support and medical bills. Corey is required to pay $800 each month until things are figured out. Leah thinks that Corey is just fighting for full custody to try and benefit himself, and that it’s not what’s best for the kids.
Aubree is with Adam’s family again, and Chelsea is busy working like always. She does some makeup for a wedding, and says that it’s her first time doing it since she got her license. Chelsea talks about things that she can do to help promote her business, and talks about vagina and nipple bleaching. Awkward.
Adam gets arrested again, but Chelsea doesn’t know why. Chelsea says that he’s been arrested 2 times on his weekends with Aubree, and says that his mom actually informed Chelsea about the latest arrest. Chelsea says that she doesn’t know much about the custody situation between Adam and Taylor, but that she’s ready to talk to a lawyer about visitation. Chelsea doesn’t want to take away visitation from Adam’s parents, but she doesn’t think that Adam needs to have any visitation if he’s going to be in jail constantly. Since Adam hasn’t had any court dates yet, there’s the potential for some prison time, and Chelsea says that she’ll die before she takes her kid to a prison for visitation.
Chelsea requests a copy of Adam’s criminal record. She calls Randy to talk about things, and basically explains that Adam has a ton of upcoming court dates. Chelsea wants to revise the visitation schedule, but Randy says that until the court dates happen it’s kind of pointless to do anything because she’s got nothing to really go off of besides the fact that he’s still breaking the law.
Adam’s mom drops Aubree off early and notices that her knee is scraped. Chelsea is pissed that Aubree is hurt, and Aubree claims that she burnt it on a dirt bike that Adam was driving. Aubree also says that she wasn’t wearing a helmet. Chelsea is mad because Adam isn’t supposed to drive any motor vehicles with Aubree.
