If you're the kind of Teen Mom 2 fan who follows the cast closely on social media, then the harrowing climax of Monday night's episode probably didn't come as much of a surprise to you.
Since October, we've known about the incident in which Jenelle Evans called 911 alleging that she had been assaulted by David.
But the episode revealed new details about the incident that may shed light on David's mindset at the time of the alleged attack.
Jenelle has dismissed the fight as a "drunk and dramatic misunderstanding."
But we think it's plain to see there's more going on here than just a booze-fueled confrontation.
Join us as we reexamine that ugly scene, and take a glimpse at what the other moms were up to on this week's episode:
In recent months, Jenelle and David have experienced a number of rough patches in their marriage.
But for all the violence and neglect, the lowest point may have come back in October, when a tearful Jenelle called 911 alleging that she'd been brutally assaulted by David.
The night of the incident, Jenelle told a 911 operator that David attacked her and pinned her down so hard she thought he had broken her collarbone.
The Pieces Come Together
Now, we know that David's mood soured earlier in the day, when he was not permitted to join his family at a local pumpkin patch, due to the fact that he had been fired from Teen Mom 2.
When David called one of the show's producers to express his dissatisfaction, Jenelle attempted to laugh the situation off.
“We haven’t been to the pumpkin patch with any of the kids this season, and he’s mad we went without him,” Jenelle explained. “He was thinking, ‘I’m gonna make Kristen s–t her pants right now.’”
