Jenelle and Nathan get into a big argument, and their neighbors call the cops because the yelling gets so out of hand. Nathan calls Barbara, and she brings Jace over during this whole ordeal, and he sees Jenelle get arrested. Later, Jenelle sits down with a new lawyer, because she can’t use Dustin any more since she’s in South Carolina now. The lawyer basically says that she needs to stop getting into situations where she’s so angry, and that maybe staying away from Nathan would be a good choice, because if she doesn’t get her life together, she’s going to be spending 13 months in prison for a parole violation, which would mean giving birth to her child behind bars. Later, Jenelle and Nathan hear the baby’s heart beat, and we find out that she’s around 12 weeks pregnant (she looks huge though). Then a huge argument ensues between the two where Jenelle basically says that she thinks Nathan wants her to get an abortion. She pulls into some random parking lot and kicks him out of the car, but instead of leaving him there, she just cries and cries and cries. After a while, Nathan gets back in the car and has regained his emotions to the point that he can actually have a discussion with Jenelle. He says that he feels like he’s constantly giving in to her, and she says that she doesn’t think he loves her and that she wants him to be more involved in this pregnancy. The scene ends with a super awkward hug.
Kail is having a hard time balancing taking care of a newborn and a 4 year old. She notices that Isaac is acting out more than normal, and she’s simply trying to get by. When Javi is home, he’s super hands on, which helps Kailyn a lot, and she actually seems very appreciative of his help, which is something we hadn’t seen much of this season. Kailyn gets a phone call from Jo, and he says that he moved into a 2 bedroom apartment, so Isaac will have his own room. Their drop offs for custody are going to remain the same, but Vee will be living with Jo now, and Kailyn is a little concerned about all of the changes that are happening in Isaac’s life. Javi drops Isaac off with Jo, since Lincoln is still too little to make that long of a drive. When Jo takes Isaac inside to see his room, all of his things are completely gone, and he cries a little bit, but perks up again pretty quickly when he gets to go see his new room. Vee makes an appearance or two, and it seems like Isaac really likes her. Hopefully we get to see more of how this whole thing plays out during the reunion special as well as next season.
Chelsea has to take her boards to get her license for skin school. She gets her friend to be her model for the test, and they head to a place that will certify her which is like 4 hours away. During this time, Adam’s parents have Aubree for the weekend, since they’ve recently figured out visitation. Aubree goes bowling with Adam, Taylor, and Paislee, and it was kind of nice to see Adam involved in her life, because we don’t see much of that on the show. You can tell that Aubree enjoys that time with her sister. Later, Chelsea is finished with her test, and she doesn’t think she passed the written part. She calls her dad and tells him how she feels about things, but he just tries to reassure her that things are going to be fine and that she probably passed it. Chelsea picks up Aubree from preschool, and they go back to Chelsea’s place to paint their finger nails. Later, Adam has his car accident. Chelsea hears about it from the news, and she goes out with her friend to talk about the incident. She says that the car was on fire and someone pulled him out, but the only thing that happened to him was that he ended up with a concussion. Chelsea seems thankful that nobody was in the car with Adam when it happened. She also seems thankful for the fact that if Adam goes back to jail because of this incident, he’ll probably lose the visitation that he just earned.
Leah and Jeremy are getting along better, and they’re preparing for a doctor’s appointment for Ali. Ali has had some difficulty breathing, and they notice that she’s been falling a lot more than normal, so they’re concerned if maybe she’s reached her peak in regards to physical ability. They all pack things up, get in the car, and drive to Ohio, where they plan to meet Corey and Miranda for the appointment the next day. There’s a really emotional scene in the middle where Ali doesn’t want to eat breakfast, and she tells Leah that she’s scared for her doctor’s appointment. It broke my heart. Ali is such a sweet girl. Anyway, later on Leah and Corey go back to the doctor’s appointment. They find out that Ali doesn’t have the kind of muscular dystrophy that they originally thought, and that after some genetic testing, they’ve narrowed it down to congenital muscular dystrophy with a Titan gene mutation. It’s super rare, and only around 20 people in the whole world have been diagnosed with it. To make things even more confusing, Ali is the only child that has been diagnosed as far as the doctor knows. The good news is that the doctor seemed to have a good prognosis. He said that most of the patients that have it are living into their 50′s and enjoying life very much, but are wheel chair bound. Everyone goes out to eat later to talk about the diagnosis, and I think there’s a sense of peace that they finally have an answer for what’s been going on with Ali.
