Well, whaddya know — “Teen Mom 2″ just got interesting again. Right when we were about to bail, “Falling” was packed with serious drama and kept our attention for a full 90-minute episode.
The biggest bombshell of the night was Leah’s confession that she cheated on Corey just days before their wedding (and yes, she was wearing her ring while she did the deed). It’s sad to see the couple call it quits, but Corey deserves kudos for initiating a divorce.
Perhaps his father said it best: “Every time she went down the road to go tanning… you would wonder.” Indeed — and she tans a lot.
Kailyn and Joe shocked with another, unexpected scandal in last night’s episode. Seemingly out of nowhere, the cameras capture that their residual feelings are alive and well — and the crazy kids went right ahead and acted on them. Poor Jordan! But it’s still a delightful guilty pleasure to see Isaac’s parents reunited.
Chelsea continues to make strides in her Adam-less world, and she’s slowly succeeding with her goals to get her GED and hold down a job. Her na�vet� in past episodes has made her appear spoiled compared to other cast members, but now that she’s on track it’s more lovable. When she’s writing her very first check, or enjoying the novelty of fundraising, it’s more amusing than annoying.
Even Jenelle is finally spicing things up by making a smart decision: Rehab.
After hitting a new low with probation, and breaking up with Keiffer (again), she realizes that she needs professional inpatient help: “Mommy’s going on a plane,” she says to her son, “and I’m going to get my life straightened out.” Even though we know she’s had additional legal troubles recently, last night we were wholeheartedly rooting for Jenelle.
We never thought we’d say it, but next week’s season finale ought to be quite entertaining.
