Jen and Larry Are Struggling
Ryan's parents, Jen and Larry, are beloved by TM2 fans for the love and support they've shown their son and grandson.
In one of this season's most moving scenes, Larry opened up about his hopes and fears for Ryan's future. “I love the fact that if he calls me or I call him, and he’s on the phone, I can understand every word that he says. I love it," Larry said. "And for the thirty days he was in rehab, it was the best I’ve ever felt because I knew he was gonna be OK. I knew that I wasn’t going to get a call and somebody tell me that I needed to come to the hospital, or whatever.”
Mom to Mom
Jen Edwards is similarly hopeful for her son's future, but she's also sympathetic toward Maci. “I know as a mom Maci wants the best for Bentley, and I know she’s probably scared. We’re all scared," Jen said this week.
Rising to the Occasion?
Needless to say, a lot of people are depending on Ryan to do the right thing. And so far, they're receiving mixed results.
In the most recent episode, Maci slammed Ryan as Bentley's "biological father" and criticized him for failing to do “what he was suppose to do" as the boy prepares to enter third grade.
Expecting Too Much?
Though most fans seem to sympathize with her plight, some feel that Maci is expecting too much from Ryan and being too critical when he fails.
