‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 5 Episode 1 Recap
Welcome back Teen Mom 2! In the premiere of season 5 there is a lot of catching up to do. A lot of this episode is about what happened between the time they stopped filming season 4 and started filming season 5. It was definitely a lot…
The whole relationship between Courtland and Jenelle is summed up in about 4 seconds. Basically Jenelle explains that after ending things with Kieffer she started dating Courtland and married him after 3 months. (There is no mention of the miscarriage that Jenelle suffered not long after marrying him.) She then reveals that she and Courtland were arrested when police found heroin in her car and that Courland is in jail. Not long after that she found out that she was pregnant and quickly decides to get an abortion. She’s living back at her mom’s house with Jace and Barbara is really supportive about the abortion and takes her to have it done. The episode ends with a little fight between them of course but I see a lot of progress in their relationship in this episode.
Since season 4 ended Leah went and had another baby girl that she named Adalynn. I’m sad we didn’t get to see her pregnancy at all, there was just too much time spent on deciding if the show would continue. Season 4 left us still wondering what exactly Ali’s illness is. Right off the bat Leah explains that she has a rare form of muscular dystrophy that will get worse as she gets older. It’s also revealed that Corey has moved on and found love in a girl named Miranda and the two are getting married. Leah is very supportive of Corey and his relationship and she’s happy that everyone is getting along for the girls.
Chelsea decided that going to beauty school for hair wasn’t what she wanted to do, instead she wants to start school to be an Esthetician. Adam has moved on and found girlfriend Taylor, who is pregnant. Chelsea says that Taylor and Adam are “on and off” but she doesn’t mention the fact that she helped Adam cheat on Taylor by hooking up with him while they were dating. Adam wants more time with Aubree and tells Chelsea he’s taking her to court so he can get set visitation.
Now about 4 months pregnant Kailyn is planning a wedding with Javi and wanting to move out of state with Isaac to be closer to where Javi is stationed. That’s a problem with Jo, even though it’s only a couple of hours away, he doesn’t want Isaac moving out of state. Kailyn gets ready for baby shower, where Javi makes a very sweet speech about having a baby and how it feels like he already has a son. TEARS! When Kailyn petitions to move Isaac out of state Jo of course is fighting it because he doesn’t want to be that far from Isaac and the two get into a small verbal argument over it when Kailyn drops Isaac off with him.
