“Go forwahds with ya life, not backwahds.”
These are the words of wisdom dispensed by Barbara Evans — a.k.a Jenelle’s Mom — on last night’s episode of “Teen Mom 2.” After which, she gives Jenelle jumper cables and a can of Fix-A-Flat for her 19th birthday. Seriously. But while we (along with the rest of the Twitterverse) laughed at the scene, we understand Barbara’s message to her daughter. As we’ve been saying for weeks: It’s time for the teen moms to forge ahead. In “No Looking Back,” there are finally signs that it’s beginning to happen.
Just in case her birthday presents aren’t enough of a reality check, Jenelle then obliges to drive her ex-boyfriend to turn himself into jail (for domestic abuse charges that she filed against him herself).
Up north in Pennsylvania, Kailyn wants to avoid another pregnancy now that she is getting serious with Jordan. Baby Isaac gets to play with a NuvaRing while Kailyn’s OB-GYN cooes him on: “See Isaac? They’re cool!” (Kailyn opts for an IUD … on camera). And heck, by the end of the episode her boyfriend is finally able to converse maturely on the subject of birth control with her.
While Chelsea recuperates from knee surgery under a bunch of animal print blankets, Uggs and smart phones, she receives a slew of nasty text messages from her mean boyfriend. Then it spirals into an angry fight. Yawn.
Still, there’s finally some good news for Leah and Corey! Aliannah’s optic nerve problem is only located in one eye, and the MRI ruled out any issues with the baby’s brain or spine. Next up: Genetics and DNA testing (along with another breakup for the young couple).
