Well, that didn't last long.
Shortly after David Eason murdered his wife's dog last week, Jenelle Evans made a smart decision for possibly the first time in her adult life.
She packed up her kids and got the hell out of Dodge.
This was the right thing to do primarily because it's not safe for Jenelle and her kids to share a roof with a mentally unstable gun nut who's prone to terrifying fits of rage.
But it was also the right thing because if David actually experiences some consequences for a change, maybe he'll eventually feel inspired to turn his life around and become the father his kids deserve.
Unfortunately, that's the kind of slow transformation that simply doesn't happen in the space of a single week.
And we learned on Saturday that Jenelle is back living with David after a separation of less than 5 days.
“Where else would she go?” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
“She has a farm to take care of. She’s back to the house to take care of the kids. How do you expect her to leave?”
Judging by the fact that the insider actually referred to Jenelle's collection of weeds and neglected animals as a farm, we can assume it's a friend of hers.
(It may even be Jenelle herself.)
So we can also assume that the informant knows what she's talking about when she says Evans issued Eason an ultimatum before returning to the Land:
She made him promise that he'll get a job and attend marriage counseling.
“He needs to get a job, which is what he promised her,” the source says.
“They’re trying to work on the relationship. They are getting a marriage counselor. They need time to work on the marriage.”
Obviously, it's almost impossible to imagine David either holding down a full-time job or sitting through an entire session with a therapist without storming off with his bottom lip quivering like a petulant toddler.
Perhaps that's why Jenelle is refusing to fully reconcile with David until he makes good on his promises.
The insider says Evans “not back with him" yet, and is merely living at home for the convenience of it.
These are tense times in Columbus County, as Jenelle is reportedly fearful that David will be arrested for animal cruelty.
There's also reason to believe Jenelle will finally be fired from Teen Mom 2 for her role in helping protect Eason from prosecution.
"No word on the network,” the source says.
“She’s not fired as of right now, that’s for sure. I don’t think they would fire her. We have other options if she gets fired.”
If Nugget lost his life but got Jenelle fired in the process then he is officially the great savior of our time.
