Teen Mom 2 Recap: Reunited and it Feels So Sad

by at .

On Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 3, Javi Marroquin finally returned home from deployment, and he and Kailyn Lowry reached a tipping point.

One that we've going to go out on a limb and say that you all saw coming a mile away at this juncture if you watch Teen Mom 2 online.

When Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 3 got underway, Kailyn took her two kids to Puerto Rico as Javi's return from military duty approached.

They'd already filed for divorce (the timeline for this is disputed, and a reason Kailyn is threatening to quit the show), but she was still anxious.

Her first ex, Jo Rivera, offered “no comment” when asked if she sucks at relationships, but said he doesn't want their dynamic to change.

That will be tough since Kail told the kids flat out that when Javi got back from overseas, he wouldn't be living together with them anymore.

Lincoln and Isaac took it well, but Isaac was naturally confused about why only Linc would be going over to Javi’s new house sometimes.

Then it became quite clear to everyone involved.

Javi and Kailyn were arguing over car seats within minutes after he returned from half a year away, and they could barely speak politely.

These two? Not the best at communication.

"It’s weird," she said, stating the obvious.

Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 3 ended with devastating realness for Isaac, who was clearly upset and emotionally reeling from it all.

Whether you're Team Javi or Team Kail, everyone should be Team Isaac and Team Lincoln, because that's what it's really all about.

They're parents for life, even if they're not married for life, and we hope they find a way to put their differences aside for the kids' sake.

It is honestly heartbreaking to watch.

Speaking of single parenting woes:

Just as Leah Messer was preparing to move herself and her three girls into their new home, her town was hit by a devastating flood.

Her ex-husband Jeremy Calvert’s parents’ home was wrecked in the natural disaster, so he returned home to help them deal with it.

That's when things got contentious.

Out of the blue, he took their daughter to Ohio - where he is living and engaged to Brooke Wehr - and wouldn’t answer Leah’s calls.

“We’re supposed to get another flash flood warning, and she’s in another city, and I know nothing!” Leah said, fuming at Jer's decision.

Calvert, she said, later “lied his way out” of the issue when confronted about being hard to reach while taking Addie out of the state.

If it's not one thing, it's another ...

In South Dakota, the pregnant Chelsea Houska was eager to make a big baby announcement, but wanted to wait until after a sonogram.

Even buying a machine to hear the fetal heartbeat at her home whenever she wanted didn't calm her nerves, but a doctor's visit did.

After she posted the announcement to social media, she, Cole DeBoer, Aubree and a producer all celebrated the joyful news again.

Things weren't so joyous in the Happiest Place on Earth, where Jenelle Evans was having so much fun with Jace, she wanted to stay loner.

Too bad Barbara Evans has custody, and other plans; Jenelle’s mom wanted him back with her right away, and that led to a huge melee.

With no resolution in sight.

All you can do with Jenelle is shake your head and hope for the best. You can't change yourself in the past, but you can going forward.

You can guarantee this argument will continue, given the unusual nature of it (her mom has custody) and the reality star's volatility.

What's unclear is how it ends.

Moreover, she has another custody battle (with Nathan Griffith) and is expecting a third child (with David Eason) in a matter of weeks.

Three kids, three dads. 

We're not judging in any way, shape or form, but it's a simple fact that it's complicated and she's got a lot on her plate on her very best day.

We pray for this girl.
