It’s time for the season premiere of Teen Mom OG. This will be my first time doing a recap for this show and I’m really excited to get started. According to TV Guide, ‘Amber and Gary settle their custody dispute; Farrah questions her relationship with Simon while planning a move to L.A.; Catelynn and Tyler contemplate having another baby; and the moms travel to L.A. to film their reunion, where Taylor’s surprise for Maci steals the show.’
The moment the producer enters Amber’s house, she gets peed on by the dog. Amber and Matt are still planning on getting married. Amber and Gary are still in a custody dispute because he wanted more child support from her. They’ve revised it and are getting ready to sign. Amber, Matt, and Leah take a trip to Cathy’s Carrel. Once Leah and Amber are up on horses, Matt gets a call about a woman claiming they got married back in 2007. Amber’s horse gets a little wild for her and she decides they should turn back. Gary is getting stressed because Amber is taking too long to sign the papers. He wants to spend time as a family this weekend in hopes that she’ll be moved to sign.
Gary calls Amber to get her estimated time of signature. She tells him that her attorney told her that everything looks good and that she’s intending to sign it soon. Amber, Leah, and Matt go to visit Krystal for a friendly catch up.
The crew arrives at Farrah’s house. She welcomes Larry back with only a slightly sassy remark. Farrah shows off the engagement ring she bought but Simon hasn’t popped the question or paid her back yet. Farrah’s in LA, recording her podcast. She has the producers on and gets a judgmental call. Larry steps up and defends her. Simon has yet to show up.
Simon and Farrah go to check out a house. When Farrah asks about the appliances, Simon interrupts her. Farrah has decided that she’s going to hire an au pair to be there for Sophia when she can’t. She asks him if he’s excited to be in the same city together. He doesn’t get to say his answer but she thinks he’s not excited at all. Farrah is getting ready to play a small role in an independent horror film. She facetimes Sophia before shooting. Later at night, her friend comes over to visit.
Catelynn and Tyler have been looking at new houses. They’re really gunning to move into a larger property and have already put in an offer. However, someone else has already put in a counter bid. They two start talking about having a big family but realize that neither of them want another baby at the moment. Catelynn and Tyler have purchased a house. Catelynn wants to make herself feel better and starts weight-watchers again. Tyler tries to help out but he comes off a little harsh. Catelynn isn’t offended, though, and brings up having a big family again. Tyler gets really quiet, he doesn’t believe they’re ready yet.
Tyler goes to visit his mom. She doesn’t believe that the couple are ready to have more children right now. His mom doesn’t see any drive in Catelynn but hopes that she’ll get it back. She gives some good gems of advice; for Tyler to be supportive and to not say anything about her weight. Tyler tells Catelynn what his mother told him.
Taylor calls a jewelry designer in order to customize his engagement ring for Maci. He meets with the jewelry maker. Taylor makes an excuse to Maci and goes show off the engagement ring. The two travel to the beach. Maci believes she’s only there for a photo shoot. While staring into each other’s eyes in front of the ocean, Taylor finally pops the question. Maci says yes, of course.
After they head over to meet up with the other Teen Mom girls. They’re all really excited for her. Maci is really proud of the ring because she feels like it fits her so perfectly. When she tells Bentley, he starts to cry out of happiness. The news is well received by the rest of their family and friends.
