Can you believe it’s already been a week since the last Teen Mom OG recap? Me either! I have to say, I love writing these for y’all and when you comment, it makes my whole day. Thank you for reading!
Now let’s get started!
Amber is still upset that she can’t have Leah on school nights. Amber wants to invite Gary and Kristina on her weekend haunted hayride to show Gary that everyone can get along. She seems pensive and worried that Matt will be upset, but Matt looks like he could seriously not care less. Amber calls and invites Gary and Company who agrees to go with. I realize she could text him the details later, but I think its weird that she didn’t give a day or time and he didn’t ask.
Gary tells Kristina she doesn’t have to go on the hayride if she doesn’t want to. Kristina says she has no issues with going. Gary then asks if Kristina if she’s going to go ape shit?! I am as confused as Kristina about that comment. Of all the Teen Mom people, Kristina is like one of the most mellow ones. She tells Gary he needs to get over things in the past and work with Amber instead of holding grudges. Gary looks semi-stoned and says he never holds grudges.
Amber and Leah are dressed up as cats for the haunted hayride. Gary and family do show up and Leah seems pretty happy to have them both there. The hayride seems a little intense for Leah (I’ve actually been to this one, and it definitely has some startling/scary-to-a-kid parts.) Amber, Matt and Leah show up at Gary’s with presents for Kristina’s daughter who is still in the hospital. Gary does acknowledge that it was kind of them to get things for the little girl. Gary and Amber talk about Leah’s upcoming birthday and they discuss having a joint party. Amber bags on Gary wearing the “Dad Bod” shirt. Gary states that he has a budget for Leah’s party and Amber tells him that’s ridiculous. Gary states that he has purchased some houses in the neighborhood and offers to rent one to Amber. Leah seems very excited by that thought, which is probably unfair of them to have put into her head. Matt is surprisingly quiet most of this episode.
Maci is busy bathing Maverick in the sink and looking none too happy. Taylor comes in with Jayde and Maci doesn’t even speak to him. I hope that’s just editing and not trouble in paradise already. They start to organize and put away wedding presents, but Maci is too overwhelmed for that, so they discuss Bentley’s upcoming eighth birthday instead. There’s a cute birthday montage of Bentley growing up. Taylor compliments Maci on being a good mom, which is sweet.
Mackenzie is literally getting Ryan dressed. Okay, she’s not physically putting the clothes on him, but she picks everything out, irons it and gives it to him. I realize that’s not super odd, but still. It’s not like he has a job that keeps him busy. Jen and Larry are wrapping Bentley’s presents. Larry suggests writing the time of the party on Ryan’s forehead, as he is slow sometimes. I die. They are probably just super thankful that someone else is taking care of Ryan now.
Maci is getting Bentley’s party together. They talk about how good Mackenzie is for Ryan. They also talk about how Mackenzie is only 20 but has her life together. Bentley has a nice party and seems happy that everyone is there.
Catelynn and Tyler are in the new house and Butch is getting released the next day. Tyler is indifferent about Butch’s release but says he would prefer that Butch not move into the new house with them. Catelynn is busy cooking something and looks like she feels like Matt does about Gary joining them on a hay ride. There’s a lot of apathy going on here.
Tyler leaves to go pick up Butch from jail. As he’s getting in the truck, Butch calls and wants to know where Tyler is. And there he is, back again, our man Butch. He does say that he was only incarcerated for about twenty days. Tyler asks him what his plans are and Butch kind of blows him off. Tyler and Butch arrive back at the house and Nova is happy to see Butch. I do wish they would do something with Nova’s hair. Butch tells the producer and Catelynn that he had been using cocaine pretty regularly before he got sent back to jail. Catelynn asks Butch why he didn’t try to talk to one of them when he was feeling some sort of way rather than getting high. Butch doesn’t have a real answer for that. Tyler tells Butch that he can stay at their old house and fix it up in lieu of paying rent. Butch says he is glad Tyler is still there for him. Tyler looks disinterested and disengaged. Butch breaks down, but Tyler just looks like he’s heard it all before. I’m not blaming him here at all. I am sure he has had his heart broken so many times by Butch’s actions over the years, he has to just keep his emotions in check.
Catelynn and Tyler discuss Butch living at the old house and Tyler says he does not feel connected to Butch at all at this point. Catelynn points out that they both always have to parent their parents. Tyler puts his head down and looks like he wants to just be anywhere but there. He throws some shade at Catelynn saying she is a lot of work for him too. He says he was kidding, but it doesn’t seem like it.
Sophia has a new nanny, named Fran. Not Fran from The Nanny though, by any means. Farrah is very happy with Nanny Fran and feels she is awesome with Sophia. Farrah is having lunch with a friend and says Simon will be in town in a few days, but they are not a couple. Farrah’s friend must have gotten the same lip implants as Farrah. It looks uncomfortable, frankly.
Simon is on site for training employees. Farrah takes Sophia to a farm where they have miniature horses. Sophia doesn’t seem overly into this adventure at first. One of the horses is sniffing Farrah’s butt, which she seems oddly fine with. Sophia picks out a horse named Starburst that she proceeds to chase around the pen.
Sophia tells Farrah that she doesn’t like her nanny because she’s old. Farrah then lectures Sophia about not having hate crimes and not discriminating. Sophia turns up the brattiness and refuses to get out of the car. Farrah shoves her and tells her that Sophia is making her very angry and that she doesn’t like pouters.
Farrah and Simon go out to dinner and she snuggles close to him, which is not something you typically do when you are not a couple with someone. Or at least most people don’t. Simon says he would like to be more than friends at some point in the future. Farrah again brings up the ring that she bought herself. She claims that she lost it and just found it. Simon basically calls her out on the ridiculousness of that. Of course, the meal ends in silence and Farrah rolling her eyes and then being sarcastic. Simon rubs her back and she snaps at him not to touch her. I honestly can’t keep up with her emotions.
Next time on Teen Mom OG—Kim asks Tyler if Catelynn is pregnant and Tyler says no, but nods yes (what?!), Leah turns eight and has a party with both her parents present, Farrah plans to move to San Diego, and Maci and Ryan seem to have lost that loving feeling after all.
