Catelynn and Tyler recap their lives since 16 & Pregnant, and they’re pretty excited to announce that they’re trying for a baby. Go figure, the instant MTV shows up the test shows a little pink plus sign, and they’re trying to come up with a plan for how to handle things once their baby arrives.
Catelynn talks to her mom about her pregnancy and Farrah’s erotic sex novels. April compliments Cate’s boobies, and it’s a little awkward. Catelynn would like to get married soon, but reveals that Tyler is a little reluctant to the idea. Tyler tells his mom that Catelynn is pregnant and she has a conversation with him about whether or not he’s ready for it. It’s a little late for that conversation, honestly!
Tyler is online and is checking things out about how the Internet actually knew about Catelynn’s pregnancy before she announced it. Catelynn and Tyler wanted to wait until after the “miscarriage phase” in order to ensure that things went smoothly and wanted to have a nice story. I couldn’t imagine having that much of a problem with keeping my life private. I’m sure it’s annoying. Catelynn talks with a friend about Farrah again – so far Catelynn’s the only one to mention it – and is talking about the Couples Therapy reunion. Cate thinks Farrah is insanely mad about not being on Teen Mom this season.
Cate and friend talk about getting married before having a baby because Cate thinks she’s more traditional in that sense.
Cate and Ty go to the Couples Therapy reunion and have to see Farrah for the first time in two years. Although Farrah’s not on the show yet, it’s great that she made an appearance in this episode! Farrah chimes in that she’s not disappointed in their choices, but claims that it’s not the route that they’ve been preaching. Things end with the three of them trying to save face, but I guess we’ll see as the season goes on.
Catelynn and Tyler talk about their wedding plans, but Tyler is insistent that a baby doesn’t have anything to do with marriage. Catelynn is concerned that Tyler might “freak out” about the wedding when it gets close to the date again. Tyler confirms that he does want to marry Catelynn for real this time.
Amber is out of prison after 17 months, and she’s bought a house! Amber talks with her cousin about adjusting to life. Amber says that once you’re an addict, you’re always an addict. We view her little recap from her time on MTV, and we even get to see her slap Gary again! Amber is struggling with seeing Leah since she doesn’t have custody and since Gary has a new girlfriend! Gary thinks that giving Leah antibiotics for an ear infection is the same as rocket science. Leah is cute as ever in her pep talk about climbing trees. I can’t even handle it.
Gary comes to pick up Leah, and we get to see them interact for the first time. Gary checks on Amber, and it’s nice to see these two people get along for once. Gary’s implying that if he and his girlfriend break up that he might get back with Amber, and it’s awkward. Even though that hand off was weird, it was kind of nice to see them be civil with each other.
Gary and his girlfriend are setting up bunk beds together. Gary kind of blows off his girlfriend’s chatter about marriage. Amber and her mother go to a pedicure with her cousin. Amber says that it’s nice to have a friendship with Gary instead of fighting, and that’s nice. Amber’s mother just talks about how she can’t trust Gary about things, and Amber simply doesn’t want to talk about the bad things that have happened.
Amber talks to her cousin about her thoughts about getting high after the stresses at the nail salon. Amber thinks that seeing Leah will help her. Gary’s girlfriend administers the rocket science medication to Leah. Gary is “playing” with Leah while he’s sitting in a recliner. Gary tells Amber that they’re all going on vacation for a week, so Leah can’t come over. Amber doesn’t want to hear about Gary’s new relationship, and it makes her mad, so she talks to the producer about it to get it off her chest.
Gary and clan get their stuff packed up for vacation. Amber sits down with the producer to talk about things, and even admits that she understands why Gary has done everything she’s done. They say that Gary is a great guy, but the thing that bothers her the most is that she’s never going to have him back again. Amber is still struggling with things after her prison stay, but is doing her best to adjust.
Maci is in her last year of college and has a weekly radio show through her school. Maci’s boyfriend Taylor moved across the country to live with Maci and Bentley. Maci has a recap of her time on MTV and the failure of a relationship that she had with Ryan. Ryan’s dating a girl named Shelby, and Maci says that it’s a serious relationship. Bentley has to get ready for bed, and he throws a fit about it and ends up sleeping in Maci’s bed instead. Maci thinks that Bentley is acting out because of his first day of filming. Ryan has Bentley for the weekend, but Bentley doesn’t want to go to Nashville with him.
Ryan and Bentley go and sail a remote controlled boat. I wish Ryan had subtitles because I can hardly understand him. Maci has a friend named Mimi, which I can only imagine being super weird. Maci’s guy friend is getting a pedicure with them as well. Maci claims that Ryan is incapable of putting Bentley ahead of himself, but seeks her friends’ advice on how to talk to Ryan about this stuff.
Maci sends Ryan a text asking if they can talk when she picks up Bentley. Ryan calls Maci and asks what they need to talk about. Ryan doesn’t want to talk about things at all, and doesn’t want to handle things in person at all.
Bentley gets an extra scene where he tries to pull his tooth out. Shelby suggests trying the string/doorknob theory. Has anyone ever done that before? It seems painful.
Maci stops by Ryan’s parents’ house to pick up Bentley. It looks like his tooth actually came out. Maci talks to Ryan’s mother about ideas to get Ryan to communicate with her better, but Mimi Jen thinks that it’s best to try and be non-confrontational about this kind of thing in order to get through to Ryan.
Maci tries to get Bentley to bed, and he seems much more well behaved this time around. Maci and Taylor talk about the co-parenting relationship between her and Ryan. Maci is going to try and email Ryan to talk about things. Taylor is the voice of reason saying that, “As long as you have Bentley, you’ve got to keep trying.”
