Hey TMJ! TV Guide says: Amber and Gary prepare for Leah’s first day of school; Catelynn struggles with her anxiety and depression; Ryan takes Bentley for the weekend, but Maci fears he hasn’t changed; and Simon shows up for the grand opening of Farrah’s frozen yogurt store.
Amber and Gary are taking Leah out shopping for school. They end up buying her $900 worth of clothes. When they drop Lean and the new clothes off with Gary, he and his wife are visibly uncomfortable with it. Leah’s picked out her first day of school outfit and it’s none of what Amber bought her. Gary goes over some rules while she’s at school before reminding her that she’ll be seeing Amber less now that schools in. Amber becomes upset when she realizes that Leah wasn’t wearing an outfit she got her. Gary’s wife brings up that Leah has talked to her about not feeling as wanted as Emilee. Amber wants to talk to Gary about letting her pick Leah up on certain days after school. When he picks her up from school, Gary starts talking to her about how she’s feeling left out. He wants to make sure she know he loves her.
Farrah’s getting ready for the her store’s opening. Training includes learning to work the company phone to post pictures and videos on social media. During her celebration dinner with her family, the conversation spins to how great her parents are. She thinks that she is the amazing one because Sophia has “taught her what it’s like to be a parent.” Simon and Farrah aren’t together anymore but he’s still coming to help her with the opening. Easy to say that doesn’t go well. Farrah starts yelling immediately and Simon spends a lot of time in a back room eating ribs.
Heather is out here tryna start drama by asking if they can be more than friends. Simon’s silence sets Farrah off again. Any romance between them seems to be dead. It’s time for the grand opening and a lot of people have showed up. It all went off without a hitch…surprisingly.
Catelynn starts to have a panic attack while at her mom’s house. She leaves Nova there and goes to calm down by skipping rocks. Catelynn is late to her psychiatrist appointment. She’s too late and is forced to reschedule. When she gets home early, Tyler is annoyed that she didn’t make it. She feels like she can’t do anything right. Catelynn goes to see Kathleen to talk about the panic attack she had. She also talks about what she was feeling after missing the doctor’s appointment. Kathleen thinks that the real issue is her childhood and not her mental illness.
Ryan calls Maci asking if he can have Bentley over for the weekend. Taylor encourages her to allow the visit. Jayde is taking her first steps. Ryan’s trying to more a fallen tree from his yard, piece by piece. He’s still fighting with his dad and he doesn’t seem like he’s trying to better anything about his life. Ryan got Bentley a puppy. Taylor’s friends come over and start riding him about being a dad. He’s very clear that Bentley feels just as much as one of his own as the other two. Ryan and Bentley hit up the water park. Maci is a bit relieved that the visit seems to be going well. She hopes that this will make Ryan want to be around more. However, she is still worried he’s going to disappear.
