Wednesday, on MTV's Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 24, Jenelle Evans, who welcomed baby son Kaiser last week, mulled over another big move:
She and Nathan Griffith may try to get custody of her first son, as well.
Meanwhile, Leah Messer, Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska all struggled to come to grips with their respective custody issues in an emotional episode ...
Jenelle Evans' mom Barbara has legal custody of Jace. In case Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 24 is the first episode you've seen, this is for good reason:
Back in her heyday? Jenelle was a bit of a train wreck to put it mildly.
Give her credit now, though. She's putting in the time with her five-year-old boy, and when Jenelle, Nathan, and Jace lay in bed together and watch Kaiser?
Cutest thing ever. He loves his brother immediately, as do they.
When Jenelle wakes up to find her beau Nathan Griffith feeding their newborn, they share another sweet family moment. Things are going very well.
At least until Nathan brings up the idea of them taking custody of Jace, which he seems more keen on than she, even though she loves the kid.
Jenelle Evans thinks they need to buy a house and settle down first, now that Kaiser has finally been born. Probably not the worst idea to take it slower.
Speaking of custody battles, Leah Messer and Corey Simms' dispute has escalated, and she’s completely crushed and overwhelmed at the idea of losing.
She breaks down emotionally when her stepfather tells her that hard times are gonna come. For Leah, it seems like there's rarely an end to them.
Corey, meanwhile, tells his parents that he doesn't believe Leah and Jeremy are stable enough to care for the girls properly, which is kind of ridiculous.
He does want the best for Ali and Aleeah, too, we'll give him that, but there's little doubt some of this is a personal vendetta as well as we see things.
In court, the judge decides not to make a decision about custody and appoints an attorney as a legal guardian to the two girls. What does that mean?
The lawyer will interview both parents, the teachers and doctors and evaluate the situation before helping the judge come to a decision about their future.
The plot thickens. Custody issues rage on for Kailyn Lowry as well, as Isaac is with his dad Jo Rivera for an extended period of time, and she's reeling.
She's really struggling with this, although it's nice to get a break while raising baby Lincoln with Javi Marroquin, and she's excited to go back to school.
She tours Delaware State, where they have on-campus daycare as well as commuter lounges she can study in, and goes on vacation with Javi.
Isaac's absence casts a dark cloud over that day at the beach though, something that Chelsea Houska can relate to. Whenever Aubree is not with her?
No matter how well work goes - and by all accounts it's going very, very well - Chelsea is always worried in the back of her mind about the loser Adam Lind.
Who, right on cue, was just arrested for a second time while he was supposed to be spending time with their daughter. That will make your head spin.
She's really worried about her visitation agreement with Adam, and is considering taking him to court, after she gets a copy of his police record especially.
As always, you can watch Teen Mom 2 online to see all of these dramatic events play out from beginning to end, and to catch up on previous weeks as well.
