Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 3 Recap: Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith Move In!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jenelle Evans moved in with Nathan Griffith, who went on to become the father of her unborn child, Tuesday night on Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 3.

Meanwhile, Leah Messer Calvert was dealt a tough blow, Kailyn Lowry had a mega-fight with Jo Rivera, and Chelsea Houska tried to work with Adam Lind.

Co-parenting? What a concept for that deadbeat. How did it work out?

What else did we learn? Come along for THG's official +/- recap!

Naturally, Jenelle Evans' decision to move in with Nathan was met with skepticism by her mom Barbara. They had one of their many fights over this.

Plus 100, though, because it was nowhere near their biggest.

Another Plus 100, too, because we know this actually ends well, or at least is trending that way a year later. Jenelle and Nathan are happy together.

She's also expecting a baby boy again, and it will be named Kaiser. Yes, Kaiser. We'd deduct points for that, but we're just happy they're a couple still.

Here's hoping that they can handle the challenges ahead. Cranking out a second baby with your new boyfriend, shortly after having an abortion?

Gonna be tough, Jenelle. Gonna be real tough.

Speaking of tough, that doesn't do justice to Leah Messer's night. Seeing her in the hospital with ex Corey Simms is, sadly, a common scene on the show.

In Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 3, their little girl Aliannah's diagnosis of congenital muscular dystrophy was confirmed, as was the need for a motorized wheelchair.

The look on both Leah and Corey’s faces said it all. Plus 300 for the realism this conveyed, because the two of them are nothing short of devastated.

Leah and Corey may not be together as a couple anymore, but they’re still a united front for their girls, and for that you have to give them plenty of credit.

These kids have gone through a lot. And that's what they are - babies having babies. They never thought it would be this hard, and they're battling.

Plus 500 for continually fighting the good fight together.

Kailyn Lowry's relationship with baby daddy Jo Rivera has never been good, but it may have reached an all-time low when they argued in front of their kid.

Isaac had to stand there and listen to them yammer about text messages. Kailyn: “I’m leaving!” Jo: “Thank God!” Minus 400 for not pulling it together.

Chelsea Houska, for her part, is actually making strides towards co-parenting with Adam Lind, inviting him to parent orientation at Aubree‘s pre-school.

Dude shows up 10 minutes late looking like crap, so Minus 100.

At least he showed up at all, though ... even if he wasn't exactly wowing anyone with his choice of attire and forgot when Aubs' birthday is apparently.

By Adam standards, however, this could've been a lot worse.

EPISODE TOTAL: +500! SEASON TOTAL: +800!
