We’ve made it to the end, kids. We have waded through plenty of deep-fried hair-dos, petty fights and, of course, enough “crying in the car” scenes to last us a lifetime. Teen Mom 2 Season 6 has given us many memorable moments, however. From Leah serving up midnight raviolis to Nathan‘s call-out to “Jeneeeeeeeelle!” from the back of a police car, this may have been the best season we’ve had yet! We’ve met new friends (Hey, Krista!) and lost old ones (RIP Nathan’s shirt sleeves.) And now it’s time to say goodbye (until the next season, that is.)
The finale episode kicks off somewhere above the skies of West Virginia, where a rehabbed and therapied Leah is heading home to her girlseses. She spent 30 days in
rehab therapy and is now ready to fight that dingdang Corey Tyler for custody of those twin babies!
Speaking of Corey, he’s been taking care of the twins while Leah tended to her headaches/stress/depression/back problems/non-drug problems. He is worried about giving the twins back to Leah, since life in her trashpit has been less-than-stable for the girls. He’s skeptical that Leah’s magical 30-day therapy program will cure her of all of her ailments.
Meanwhile, Mama Dawn meets up with Addie and Jeremy (who has had the title on his ripped-up paper thing changed from “Leah’s husband” to “Leah’s ex-husband”) at the airport. Leah deplanes looking fresh-faced. She’s even brushed her hair! Addie rushes to greet her mom, who is thrilled to see her.
Leah is grateful to Jeremy for bringing Addie to the airport, and she thanks him. (Also…how cute was Addie in this scene? We always forget how adorable she is…probably because she’s always covered in jackets.)
In South Dakota, Cole and Chelsea are about to be officially shacking up. Unfortunately, Aubree has a nasty cold. She’s got a 102-degree fever and Cole seems a little overwhelmed by the sick kid.
Let’s stop for a moment here to discuss the ‘Teen Mom 2’ fashion happening here. Cole is once wearing his “Wisconsin Grandpa” T-shirt, while Chelsea has pulled a pair of denim overalls out of 1995. (Perhaps they’re from her mother, South Dee-ko-tah Mary‘s closet. Can’t ya just see Mary sporting overalls on top of her “Single. Sassy. Single” tee?! She would have been on the cover of Delia’s catalog circa 1996 for sure!)
Anyway, Chelsea basically creeps Cole out by telling him that once he moves in, he will be living with her forever. Faced with the prospect of permanently cohabiting with Chelsea and her overalls, Cole kind of stutters in his response.
“Yeah…it’s weird…I mean, cool,” he tells her.
Next up, we check in with Jenelle who tells us that, as per usual, there is a warrant out for her arrest. We don’t even bother to do any small-talk scenes with Krista at Jenelle’s madhouse. Instead, we start off right at the jail, where Jenelle has just been released from the clink. She had to turn herself in due to scratching up Nathan‘s beloved biceps during their (most-recent) brawl.
Jenelle’s friend Ryan tells Jenelle that Nathan is still in love with her, and that he would be with Jenelle, if they could somehow manage to stop getting each other arrested. Jenelle claims that she is not interested in Nathan anymore, but Ryan doesn’t even want to hear it. He tells her to stop focusing on dick and think about school and her kids for once.
While that’s good advice, we know darn well that Jenelle isn’t going to take it! (I mean, if she did, there really wouldn’t be a reason to have ‘Teen Mom 2.’)
When she gets back to her house, Jenelle calls her motha, Babs, who is happy to hear that Jenelle is over Nathan. Jenelle then requests to talk to her son
Jack Jace, who answers the phone, “Yeah?” (As you do when your mother calls you after she gets out of jail.)
Jace’s graduation is coming up, and Jenelle tries to catch up on a year’s worth of Jace’s schooling in a one-minute on-camera phone call. Provided she’s not behind bars, Jenelle says that she plans to attend Jace’s graduation.
Finally, we head to Delaware, where Kail and Javi are celebrating Isaac’s graduation. Isaac tells his mom that he is inspired by her going to college, and wants to grow up to be like her and go to college himself.
Can we take a moment here to celebrate that one of these girls is in actual college, and wants to have a career outside of getting pregnant on MTV? This doesn’t happen very often so we really have to acknowledge it.
Anyway, Isaac is heading to Rappin’ Jo‘s house for a visit, so Kail goes inside to see what was up with Jo missing all of Isaac’s recent events. Of course, Jo is defensive, claiming that he didn’t even know Isaac was graduating. Again, bro…even Adam made it to his kid’s graduation. You’re not going to win here. Jo says that Kail should have told him that Isaac was graduating.
Jo promises that if he could, he would jump into his time machine and attend Isaac’s graduation and soccer game. (While you’re at it, Jo, perhaps go back a few months and stop eating so many HungryMan XXL frozen dinners and candy bars. Just sayin’…)
Jo starts cussing at Kail, until she brings up the whole child support subject. Jo tells her that eventually she won’t be getting any money from him at all because he won’t have any. If only there were a way where Jo could do something, anything, and someone could give him some money for doing it….
Oh wait…get a freaking JOB! Barbara probably has two of them, you can get one!
Jo claims that he CAN’T possibly work because Isaac comes over for one week a month. Somewhere in his big bloated head, that makes sense. It doesn’t make sense to Kail, who vows to take Jo to court to get that child support!
In South Dakota, Adam and one of his many street urchin friends are watching Paislee. They talk about Chelsea’s boyfriend, and how the Houskas always pick him apart.
Meanwhile, Cole is moving into Chelsea’s cabin. Aubree is still spraying her germs all over the house, but is excited to greet their new roommate. Cole arrives with one suitcase and about four plaid shirts. (Now we know why he wears that Wisconsin Grandpa T-shirt so much.)
Aubree greets Cole by sitting on his lap and essentially kneeing him in the junk. She demands that he remember to put the toilet seat down and they take a family selfie to celebrate the day.
In West Virginia, Leah’s out of the ‘hab and back on the side of the road, where she’s picking up the twin youngins from Corey. She loads them into her car (which is no longer serving as a storage unit/coat closet for Leah’s family) and takes them to a random park.
She meets up with Chasity (who may or may not have just been sitting in that random park the whole time Leah was gone). They’re gabbing over Capri-Suns about Leah’s stay at the therapy/rehab. Leah says that the rehab people made her be on a schedule, made her go to bed at a reasonable time and (probably) made her wash her hair for what may have been the first time in weeks.
Leah is just full of wisdom during this scene. Seriously, everything that is coming out of her mouth sounds like it came from a fortune cookie. Of course, Chasity is gobbling all of the cliches up (in between snack cake bites, of course).
Leah also dishes about her recent divorce. She tells Chasity that “out of everyone,” Jeremy was the easiest to deal with and complied with all of her demands much better than Corey did. It’s sad that at 23, Leah has the ability to compare and contrast her various divorces.
But, hey, it’s all about “livin’ and learnin'” and “being the best you can be,” as Leah tells us!
Chasity is probably gonna go do a needlepoint of that phrase to hang up on the wall. (Let’s face it; Chasity seems like the kind of gal that totally does needlepoint, right?)
In Delaware, Kail apologizes to Javi for cussing him out in the past. After watching Jo do it to her, she realizes how ridiculous she must have looked. They discuss Jo’s inability to get a job, and decide that Kail should take Jo to court.
Javi says that Jo is just being cheap and lazy and has stated that he doesn’t want to work. Ironically, Javi is wearing a T-shirt that says “We ain’t rich” during this scene. As you do.
Meanwhile, Jo and Vee are chowing down on tacos and talking about how Jo can’t stop cussing at Kail. Jo doesn’t seem to understand why Kail is mad about him missing Isaac’s events. Jo is totally the victim, of course, telling Vee that Kail is putting him in a situation where he’s helpless.
“There’s nutin’ there but greed!” he exclaims.
Vee nods, but you can just tell that she’s worried that she will be having this exact same conversation with Jo in a few years, when they’ve split up and she’s the one he’s calling greedy. Basically, put Vee in Kail’s position (and add massive hoop earrings and the inability to properly pronounce the word “with”) and that will give you a glimpse of the future, i.e. ‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 12.
In Carolina, Jenelle is meeting up with Nathan who calls her with a wailing Kaiser in the back of his car. Nathan says that he needs to talk to Jenelle, but Jenelle’s not having it. She refuses to speak to Nathan when he comes in and drops off Kaiser. Maybe she’s taking her friend’s advice and not focusing on having a man for once.
Haha, just kidding!
Eventually, Jenelle allows Nathan back into the Madhouse so that they can talk.
“We need to stop all the madness and violence and police being involved,” he tells her. Nathan is waving the white flag (which is most likely just the sleeve part of a cut-up T-shirt) and asking for peace with Jenelle. Of course, Jenelle can’t focus on anything but the fact that Nathan is putting his boner up against another girl’s back. That causes Nathan to storm out and Jenelle to start crying.
Meanwhile, Mama Dawn’s moved all of Leah’s stuff out of the house she shared with Jeremy. (Good Lord, they must have had to use all of the U-Haul trucks in West Virginia for that haul!)
Leah’s found a new place to live (with her new booooyfriend, whom MTV is pretty much just ignoring at this point.) Leah is planning to meet up with Corey to discuss all of custody stuff. She has asked him not to bring his wife, that hussy Miranda, and she hopes that will help her get a better relationship with Corey.
“He was convinced, 100 percent, that I was a drug addict!” Leah says of the last time she met up with Corey.
Speaking of Corey, he tells Miranda that Leah doesn’t want her there. Miranda and Corey aren’t buying the cliches and fortune cookie sayings that Leah’s selling. He agrees to meet Leah, but Miranda comes along and sits at a different table. Leah arrives with her band of degenerates, but refuses to get out of the car when she spots Miranda inside.
Leah’s enraged and drives off without going inside. She texts Corey and lets him know that she “ain’t comin'” so the Simms leave the restaurant. Miranda is hurt that Leah treats her so poorly, considering that Miranda was the only one brushing the girlseses’ hair when Leah was sleeping off a stupor in the park. Those girls would be wearing wigs now if it weren’t for Miranda! Come on!
Leah insists that it’s Miranda’s fault that she has a bad relationship with Corey and the degens agree with her.
Over in Jenelle’s neck of the woods, her domestic violence charges have been dropped (of course), and she’s celebrating Jace’s kindergarten graduation. Babs (who’s wearing quite the sassy dress for the festivities) and Jenelle are getting along splendidly. They talk about the Jace custody situation.
“Ya always think that I neva wanna give ya Jace, but that’s not true!” Babs says, adding that she knows one day Jenelle will take back custody of Jace. They agree to try to work as a team.
That’s all for Season 6, guys! Stay tuned for the Reunion– The Ashley can tell ya that it’s going to be intense. In case you missed it, here’s one thing that went down during the Reunion taping!
