Starbucks, Nail-Art and Rehab, Oh My: Teen Mom; S4E3
Teen Mom; Season 4, Episode 3
Episode 3 of our favorite show is a big deal for me, for Maci does what I have been wanting to do since day one of Teen Mom…she invites herself on a vacation with Ryan. As for the other girls, Catelynn is still wearing bows in her hair, Amber is still giving Starbucks tons of free promotion and Farrah is finally out of her parents lives (though interestingly enough they don’t appear to be enjoying this). But that’s not ALL that happens, so let’s get to the recap!
Four seasons later and we at last get to celebrate the graduation of Catelynn and Tyler! While this is a great occasion, the big question for them is will Butch be out of jail to attend the graduation?! Well, let’s just cut to the chase—no. He gets out of jail the day after! Though I do have to ask, how would the no-contact order between he and April have worked out had he been able to attend the ceremony? Just curious how they would have handled it. I personally can’t picture sober Butch alone in a crowd at a High School graduation, but then again what do I know.
Bentley is a few days away from a week long vacation with Ryan, and Maci is none too pleased. A week without Bentley feels like too much for her, so she asks Ryan’s family if it is alright if she travels to the same hotel as them, the same week, in hopes of getting some time with
shirtless Ryan Bentley. As the captain of Team Ryan this obviously aggravates me to no-end. I’m all for co-parenting, but co-vacationing?
Maci’s heart does appear to drop when Ryan mentions that he not only has a girlfriend, but that she will be coming along on this vacation. To make things more awkward, Ryan’s mother wants to take a family photo of Maci, Ryan and Bentley together during this trip. Awkward? Maybe. But we’ll have to wait til the next episode before we can see how this ends up! In the meantime, Maci is confident that she is not only sweeter than Ryan’s girlfriend who she hasn’t met, but also that she will likely break-up with Ryan after meeting her. Hmmmm.
Farrah is just getting settled in Miami, thanks to the help of her father, better known to us Teen Mom viewers simply as “Michael.” Despite Michael’s help (including 5 days of driving and several days of staying in town to help her get settled) Farrah is none too pleased when he broaches the topic of relocating to Miami to be near them. Desperate for her independence, Farrah hires a nanny/babysitter to watch Sophia while she is in school and busy being an independent woman. Then, in the spirit of bad ideas Farrah decides to get a puppy. (Despite Sophia wanting a fish instead.) Considering that Farrah didn’t like her lost dog because it had to go to the bathroom and required training in order to behave, my heart goes out to Stitch, the French Bulldog unfortunate enough to be selected by Farrah.
Amber is still in rehab, and basically I have learned a lot about starbucks and nail-art, and not so much about rehab. That being said, Amber’s bits of the episode include a few sessions at rehab and Gary trying to work through some legal matters so he and Leah can come visit Amber. And just like Maci and Ryan’s co-vacation, we won’t get to see how this visit goes until next episode!
And that is more or less it! Thanks for reading, guys!
Episode MVP: Stitch. Farrah and Sophia as roommates is even a lot for a dog to handle.
