If you watched Monday night's episode of Teen Mom 2, you likely noticed that several things were a bit ... off.
For one, we saw Kailyn Lowry smiling and enjoying herself, a rare sight as the show focuses increasingly on feuds and dramatic fireworks.
Even more unusual, however, was the fact that Jenelle Evans was nowhere to be seen in this week's episode.
Obviously, the absence of the Carolina Hurricane left fans with a lot of questions:
Is Jenelle being punished? Is this the beginning of the end? Will she still be paid as much as the other girls?
Fortunately, The Ashley's Reality Roundup was able to answer these and other questions.
Here's what we know so far:
Sitting This One Out
This is the first time in nine seasons that Jenelle was not featured in an episode of the show that made her famous.
In fact, this is the first time that ANY full-time cast member was not featured in a regular season episode.
The situation left fans wondering why producers might have made such a decision -- and what it might mean for the future of Jenelle's career.
A History of Problems
It's no secret that Jenelle made life hell for the crew members who worked with her this season.
The David Factor
Much of the problem, of course, was that Jenelle's husband, David Eason, had been fired from the show, making it difficult to film on the couple's property.
Babs Is Back
This also left producers at a loss for what to do with Evans, and they've been forced to awkwardly pair her up with her estranged mother in order to give her someone to talk to on camera.
