But it wasn't until Monday night that Teen Mom OG viewers got to see the insanity unfold.

Ryan's threats resulted in a restraining order that prevented him from seeing his own son for a time -- and it all started because of a joke Taylor posted on Twitter.

Check out the gallery below for a full recap of one of the show's all-time most ridiculous moments:
