51 and Childless: Teen Mom; S4E10
Teen Mom; Season 4, Episode 10
So this episode of Teen Mom was significantly more interesting than the rest of this season, and that is 100% due to Farrah meeting Daniel’s family. So now that we have a good episode, let’s get to recapping it!
While Debra is watching Sophia in Florida, Farrah is traveling to Austin, TX with her new boyfriend Daniel! Things start off pretty well. Daniel seems really touched that Farrah has traveled with him to meet his family and Farrah seems happy! (Which after 3 hard seasons was nice to finally see!) But things quickly go down hill. Here’s the play by play of Farrah quotes that just should have never happened a month-and-a-half into a relationship:
Strike 1: “I’m just trying to prepare you for having kids.”
Strike 2: (To Daniel’s Step-Mother) “You haven’t had children yet?! Oh my god! I don’t think it’s going to happen then. How old are you? 51?! Ooooh, you’re gonna be a lone bird. I can’t believe you never had a child yet!”
Strike 3: (While shopping at a thrift store) “You know what, I actually want my husband to buy me a ring from a thrift store.”
Strike 4: “If we ever get married can I please wear this to the wedding?”
Strike 5: “I don’t want to like, date, forever. I don’t want to get married right away—but I want to get engaged.”
Basically, following her 5-strikes we miss some sort of disagreement and next thing you know Farrah and Daniel are over. And that’s it! She flies home from Texas ALONE! I know Farrah gets a lot of hate, but I do feel badly. She seemed really happy this season dating Daniel, and it sucks for anyone to be coming home from what was supposed to be a romantic weekend alone. I give Farrah credit for holding it together!
Amber is trying to find a new home to rent, Leah is calling Gary “Mom” instead of “Daddy” and Gary is filling out his recliner more than ever. When Amber requests to see Leah, Gary arranges for her to see Leah the following day. Amber agrees, so it should seem pretty natural to Amber why Gary would be upset when she cancels the next day. Amber cancels so she can look at homes to rent, and feels that it’s Gary’s fault because he didn’t give her Leah the day before. Clearly the only thing that sucks here is that Leah was looking forward to seeing Amber and now that won’t happen.
Though I will say that the house Amber looks at is pretty dang nice.
Catelynn and Tyler need to register for school…yawn…Catelynn and Tyler aren’t sure if Human Services or Social Work is a better major…yawn…Catelynn and Tyler go to a birth parent support group…yawn…Catelynn and Tyler talk with professionals in the field to help determine their degree…yawn…Catelynn and Tyler decide to take a semester off til they know which degree they want for sure…YAWN.
Hey, have Catelynn and Tyler ever heard of pre-requisites or transferring credits?!
The Maci drama this week all revolves around Twitter. I know, I know, but even that being the case it is still more entertaining than Catelynn and Tyler. So what was this Twitter war about? Maci had a tweet saying that things would be easier and better for Bentley if Ryan and Maci had worked out, but things didn’t workout that way. This upsets Ryan’s girlfriend Dalis and Ryan and co. interpret this as a deliberate act to sabotage their relationship. As much as I believe Maci loves Ryan I cannot believe that she would try to break up his relationship via Twitter. I don’t even think Jenelle and Kieffer break up other people’s relationships via Twitter. It’s just not how you do things.
In the end Maci and Ryan talk it out, but Ryan refuses to apologize for saying he hates her. Hey, you can’t win them all, right?!
And that’s the episode! So like I said, Farrah really did steal the show on this one! Only two more episodes left to go, guys! Who else will be crying when it’s all over?!
Episode Fail: The advice Daniel should have never given Farrah.
I’m going to give it to Gary Shirley. Not just because he tweeted us yesterday, but because I agree that it was disappointing to cancel on Leah when she was looking forward to her visit with Amber.
