Holy poo, guys. This one got a little long, so just ignore whatever you don’t want to read, and comment your thoughts below. I typed while I was watching, simply because I wanted you to have something to comment on while I’m at school tomorrow. (Thanks again for sticking with me while WE ALL figure this new schedule out! You’re the greatest!)
Jenelle, Barbara, and Nathan go out to lunch before heading to a meeting with an attorney. Barbara pushes for having Nathan take his dog to a rehoming center, but Nathan says that will never happen. They talk about how the attorney meeting will go, and hope that Courtland simply signs the divorce papers, but they’re pretty sure he’ll try and get alimony from Jenelle.
The three of them head to the lawyer’s and talk about how the divorce should go down. They talk about the fact that Jenelle is super pregnant and that they’re all worried about Courtland having rights to the child when it’s born, but the lawyer calms everyone’s nerves by saying that it would only happen if Courtland wanted to claim that he was the dad of Jenelle’s unborn child. They think it’ll only take around 30 days to finalize everything, which is a good thing since Jenelle is pretty close to having this baby.
Jenelle’s lawyer is filing the papers for the divorce, and they all head back to Barbara’s house. Jace smashes crackers all over the floor, and Nathan handles the “discipline” for that situation I guess. Nathan says he’s going to get a paternity test simply for legal rights, and that he does plan on proposing to Jenelle but doesn’t want to rush anything and he wants to make sure everything is perfect. Barbara reveals that she went through a nasty divorce and doesn’t want Jenelle to go through it like she did, but Nathan admits that once he was divorced he didn’t plan on getting married again until he met Jenelle.
In a cute extra clip, Jenelle pushes Jace on the swing, and she and Barbara talk about the possibility of getting him a bigger swing set, which I think would be nice so he could get rid of some of that energy that he has built up. Honestly, it was nice to see Jenelle play with Jace, because we really don’t see a lot of that.
Jenelle is trying to get some studying done while Nathan is at the gym, but her friend stops by. Jenelle tells her friend about filing for a divorce, and her hopes that the divorce goes smoothly. Jenelle says that she’s just going to get a paternity test done no matter what, and doesn’t seem too unhappy about it. Jenelle says she wishes that she had never met Courtland, and that she regrets everything about her marriage. She says she wants to marry Nathan, but that she’s not going to rush into a marriage like she did last time.
At the beginning of the episode, Ali goes to therapy with Corey’s dad in order to make sure that everyone knows what’s going on with Ali’s physical therapy and the wheelchair. Jeff seems pretty happy about being able to see Ali with the wheelchair, and it’s nice for Leah to have a break for a bit.
Jeff brings Ali home from physical therapy and says that she did a great job. He tells Leah all about how things went, and it’s good to see how these two can still have a relationship even though Leah and Corey’s marriage didn’t work out. Jeff says that he’s happy that he was able to see Ali with the wheelchair because now he realizes that it’s simply to supplement Ali’s walking so she can conserve energy when she’s walking, and has energy to do other things like play at the playground. Both Leah and Jeff seem to think that Corey is still in denial about how the wheelchair should work in Ali’s life.
Jeff goes back and talks to Corey about the situation and tries to explain to him that Ali simply uses the wheelchair as a novelty, but Corey is still insistent that he doesn’t want Ali to be dependent on the wheelchair at all.
Jeremy comes home for the weekend, so he and Leah head to his parent’s house. Corey calls and lets Leah know that he’s going to take the girls to the zoo that weekend, and he’s planning on taking the wheelchair, which is a big step for him. Leah says she’ll bring the wheelchair to the drop off, and asks about the insurance situation, but Corey says that nothing has really changed yet, but he’ll let her know if he hears anything about getting their real wheelchair. Leah talks to Jeremy about the insurance thing, but they’re both really frustrated that they still have the loaner wheelchair and not the one Ali was fitted for. Even though it’s a good thing that Corey is making an effort with the wheelchair now, they’re both mad that Corey hasn’t seen her in the chair before now.
Javi is still away in Texas for extra training, but Kailyn is able to FaceTime with him for a bit. She says that Lincoln is having issues when he’s trying to latch on during breastfeeding, and it’s frustrating to her. She says that Isaac has an art show that’s coming up and that Jo and Vee are planning on coming to see him and then see his place. Kailyn also said that her mom is planning on coming to the art show, but that since she hasn’t talked to her mom in a long time, it could be awkward, especially since Jo and Vee will be there also.
Vee loses her nose ring, and MTV decides that it’s substantial enough to include in this episode. Jo and Vee talk about how they’re surprised that Kailyn invited them to Isaac’s art show, but agree that it wasn’t too awkward. They agree that Kailyn is making an effort to repair relationships with everyone, but hope that it’s not a big deal or dramatic when they’re all together.
Kailyn took Isaac home early from the art show since he was so tired, but Jo, Vee, and Suzi still come over even though Isaac is sleeping. Suzi asks how things are going since Javi is gone. Kailyn admits that things are a little crazy, but that she’ll make it through. She gives them a tour of the house, and then Lincoln gets hungry, but he doesn’t want to latch on, and it makes things complicated. Jo and Vee leave, after Kailyn thanks them for coming to support Isaac with things. Seriously, I’m so happy that these people finally figured their shit out.
Suzi stays the night to help with Lincoln, and vents her frustrations about him not latching. They seem like they’re doing better, but you can tell that things are tense. Suzi is helping a lot with Lincoln, and that’s obviously helpful with the situation Kailyn is in. Kailyn says that Javi is still learning about how to take care of a baby, but that he’s learning. Suzi seems like she’s trying to be helpful, and even though I don’t know where they stand today, I’m sure the one day of help that was shown was a lot better than nothing. Kailyn breaks down in tears at the end of the episode because Lincoln won’t latch on, and Suzi comes to the rescue to help take care of Lincoln so Kail can have a break.
Chelsea is officially a licensed esthetician so she’s able to go back to work. Chelsea is excited that she has her own room set up at her work place, and has business cards. Her work seems to be really flexible with things, so that’s always good since Chelsea is a single mom and can have things come up which would require a flexible schedule.
Chelsea’s mom stops by and we learn that Aubree is going to play softball, which is exciting for her. Chelsea tells her mom about how the licensure is all figured out, and then they obviously talk about Adam, because that’s what happens. Apparently Chelsea told Adam that Aubree had softball practice when he asked for the information, and Chelsea told Aubree that Adam would be there. Sadly when Chelsea tried to call him, he didn’t answer and Aubree gets pretty upset that he didn’t answer his phone. We get to see Aubree’s softball practice and it seems like she’s doing pretty well, but when Chelsea finally gets ahold of Adam, the practice is almost over, and it doesn’t look like he’ll make it in time to see Aubree at all.
Adam ends up showing up at the very end of practice, and Aubree is so excited to see him, but it really sucks that he was so late and didn’t get to see any of it. Aubree tells Adam that he missed the whole thing, and it’s pretty sad that she’s so upset about it. Chelsea asks him what he was doing, and he was simply sitting at home and sleeping and that people have to do things. Seriously, Adam was there for like 3 minutes.
Chelsea calls her dad in the car and tells him about how Aubree did at softball practice. She talks to Randy about it on speaker phone with Aubree in the car, and then Aubree tells Randy that her dad missed it all, but he reassures her that Adam will be there next week for her very first game. They really need to figure out how to not talk about it right in front of Aubree.
