This week on Teen Mom OG, the fab four continued to wrestle with myriad issues threatening to impact their already tumultuous lives.
If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that for Catelynn Lowell's husband Tyler Baltierra, his father's fate often hangs over his head.
This week was no exception, that's for sure.
On Teen Mom OG Season 4 Episode 2, after about 20 days in jail, Butch got sprung from the slammer and was a free man once again.
Tyler, dutiful son that he is, picked up his old man.
Rather than taking him back to the new house he and Catelynn recently moved into, however, he did not allow Butch to move in there.
The troubled patriarch instead moved into the couple's old home, and in lieu of rent, will be fixing up some stuff that needs fixing there.
Butch's sobriety, as always, is a tenuous situation.
It's no surprise that Ty didn't seem optimistic, as he'd be foolish to watch the same thing happen over and over again and expect otherwise.
Poor kid. He and Cate have been through a lot.
Meanwhile, Farrah Abraham and Simon Saran ...
[We don't even know how to continue that sentence without audible sighs and shaking our heads, so just bear with us for a little bit.]
Okay, where were we. Yes, they appeared to be on good terms again, with Farrah's on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off BF training her employees.
At her furniture store, which is obviously a thing that she has. Farrah and Sophia were off playing with horses while this was happening.
Unfortunately, a fun mother-daughter day took a dramatic turn once Sophia started talking s--t about this new nanny Farrah just hired.
Soph doesn't care for “old” nannies apparently.
For once, Farrah acted like the grown-up in the situation, putting her young daughter in her place and refusing to stand for “hate crimes.”
Yes, that terminology was used in this situation.
Just in case you thought Farrah could get through a whole episode without vintage Farrah weirdness, well, there was also this twist:
Abraham told Simon that - what do you know, can you imagine the odds - she suddenly found the engagement ring she bought herself.
As subtle hints go, this was an all-timer; Farrah clearly hoped he would grab the thing and propose, which he did not do, which infuriated her.
Farrah. We are at a loss for words as always.
In even more surprising news, Maci Bookout threw Bentley a birthday party and Ryan Edwards not only showed up, but on time. On time!
Obviously, his new girlfriend Mackenzie Standifer (pictured) can take a lot of credit for that, but give Ryan his due at least in part here.
He must have done something right in order to convince her he's worth her time, right? Or maybe he just grew up a bit, at long last?
One can only hope, for all of their sakes.
Speaking of amicable co-parenting, or attempts thereof, an Indiana foursome was trying to navigate that road as well, with good results.
Amber Portwood and Matt Baier invited Gary Shirley and Kristina Anderson to join them on a haunted house trip with daughter Leah.
The only awkward part? Amber bought presents for Gary’s girlfriend’s daughter, who was in the hospital, and Leah said mom is “rich.”
Is that true, though? Take a look below ...
