Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 8 Recap: I Don’t Wanna Talk About It!
Monday on Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 8, one member of the fab four was rocked to the core by a bombshell regarding her ex.
Meanwhile, another couple who has been in the news a lot lately continued to bicker, and a seven-year-old’s birthday party got awkward.
If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin have been at odds since … well, before we can remember.
This week’s source of tension between them?
Kail decided to just take a camera-free vacation to Hawaii, and Javi lamented how sad his life is without his family complete.
“I created an empire, and now that’s all gone, everything,” he said, unable to fight back the tears in a truly emotional scene.
Somehow, Kailyn came back refreshed and willing to work with Javi on co-parenting their son, Lincoln, and … getting along.
Maybe solo vacations aren’t the worst thing.
Then again, the bitterness still lingers, as Kailyn was on the verge of tears one minute over losing Javi, and moving on the next.
“How do you want me to take you seriously when you got some dude’s shoes in the house?” Javi asked Kailyn, who denied it.
She then told producers she would take her mic off if they pushed the obviously sensitive subject any further, so they did not.
Just another week in Delaware, Teen Mom fans.
For Jenelle Evans, Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 8 began with her in a familiar position – yelling at her mom Barbara over her son Jace.
While she was finally financially and emotionally stable, by her standards, Jenelle’s prospects for winning back custody still felt arduous.
After all, she is Jenelle, and Babs is Babs.
An opportunity did present itself for her to challenge her custody agreement with Nathan Griffith, however, after the miscreant got arrested.
Nathan was arrested for burglary and domestic violence following an alleged attack in which he is said to have attacked Jessica Henry.
On Sunday at 4:00 a.m., which is the real kicker.
Not just because most normal dads would probably be asleep then, but specifically because he was supposed to be watching Kai then.
For his part, Nathan dismissed Jessica’s claims and made fun of Jenelle while at dinner with a friend, so he’s clearly taking it seriously.
In the end, Jenelle decided to pursue the custody case with Barbara but to “keep an eye on” and not act against Nathan … for now.
Give it a few hours.
Chelsea Houska’s daughter, Aubree, turned seven this week, and while Adam Lind’s mom showed up to celebrate, Adam himself did not.
He didn’t even reach out to say happy birthday.
“It’s so disgusting to me. These are the things that matter,” Chelsea lamented while her fiance Cole DeBoer played with Aubree later.
Houska’s theory that her ex – while incredulously threatening to quit Teen Mom 2 – only wants be a dad while filming may have merit.
Basically, Adam Lind is a sociopath.
Adam is pretty much the worst, which makes Leah Messer’s calling Jeremy Calvert a deadbeat dad in her storyline all the more puzzling.
First, Leah reassured friends (and fans) by saying that Aleeah hadn’t shown any symptoms of muscular dystrophy, so she wasn’t worried.
But when Jeremy pushed back his scheduled time to see daughter Addie and was acting too noncommittal for Leah’s liking, she cried.
That’s when her grandmother told her it might be time to consider telling him to hit the bricks and just focus on raising Adalynn alone.
In the end, Jeremy and Addie reunited at a park, but we don’t expect we’ve seen the last of this drama – on the show or Jeremy’s Instagram.
