Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 3 started out with Alex discussing her plans for Arabella’s cupcake and princess-themed first birthday party. Her friend questioned whether Matt was still in the picture, and Alex said her goal was for Arabella to not follow in Matt’s footsteps.
Katie stayed at her dad’s and received a text from a friend, showing her who Joey was dating now – a girl named Brigette, who also had a child. She went to get her hair done and asked for something as different as possible.
Briana’s mom and sister both didn’t approve of her dating Jacob because of his reputation, but Briana insisted upon giving him a chance anyway. She called Jacob and told him they would have to keep it on the “down low” and planned to do something later that week.
After getting into a fight with her parents a couple days prior, Mackenzie still hadn’t spoken to her mom about it. She practiced her tumbling before chatting with her friends about their fight. Back at the house, Mackenzie’s sister commented that her parents were the ones taking care of Gannon. Her mom said they had to be very careful around Mackenzie, because she would just leave and take Gannon with her. Her mom said she wouldn’t be able to handle it, since she was too attached to the baby. In the morning, Mackenzie’s mom talked to her about the way she stormed out with Gannon the other night. She wanted to talk about it and said they wanted to spend time with Mackenzie, Josh, and Gannon, but the disrespect needed to stop.
Alex and her friend Marina went to paint pottery with Arabella. Alex mentioned she wanted to get back in touch with her dad. She also painted Arabella’s foot to put her footprint on the pottery, which Arabella didn’t care much for.
Katie and Joey decided he could have Molli for the weekend, so Katie brought her to Joey. Katie called Joey a name and got into a fight with him. She even threw an old coffee at him before telling him to go away. They continued to argue before deciding to only talk about Molli and nothing else.
While Roxanne and Brittany were out running errands, Briana’s friend came over, and Briana filled her in on the situation with Jacob. Briana explained she didn’t think Jacob was as bad as her mom and sister and wanted to continue spending time with him.
Katie told a friend she didn’t even want Joey to have Molli, while Joey took Molli to an ATV racing event that took place in the mud. Joey’s new girlfriend, Brigette, showed up with her own child, and Joey tackled her after his race, also covering her mud. Later on, Katie’s friend invited her over to a fire. Joey tried to feed Molli whole milk instead of breast milk, but that didn’t work. He and Katie talked briefly on the phone, and Joey agreed to bring Molli back the next afternoon. Katie talked to her friends about how she had never been away from Molli this long before, and they tried to help her see the positives to the situation.
Alex called her dad to invite him to Arabella’s birthday party, and he agreed to go. She was glad he would be there, but she also knew he wasn’t happy she was so young and a parent.
Mackenzie took Gannon to the park, and Josh joined them. She told him she had smoothed things out with her mom and invited Josh to the lake with her family the next day. He agreed to join them
Briana and her friend took Nova along on their double date to get ice cream. The group sat outside, and Jacob’s friend questioned Briana on what she does. She explained that she hadn’t told her mom where she was going, and her mom didn’t approve of her seeing Jacob. She snuck out with Nova again the next day and went to an arcade. Briana knew she couldn’t always take Nova with her if they continued dating in the future.
Everyone headed off to the park for Arabella’s birthday party. Alex’s dad was late after being stuck in traffic, but he made it and spent some time with Alex and Arabella. He said he wasn’t happy about Alex having Arabella, even though he loved Alex and Arabella. Alex tried to blow it off and say they had to deal with the situation, but he was also frustrated to see her working so much at such a young age.
Mackenzie and her dad picked Josh up on their way to the lake. Mackenzie’s family was happy Josh came along, and everyone enjoyed their day of sun and jet skiing. They talked at the end of the day, and Josh agreed that he had fun, and Mackenzie’s family wasn’t all bad.
Briana hadn’t heard from Jacob for a few days and discovered he was dating another girl. She asked her mom to watch Nova, and she went for a car ride with her friend to talk about Jacob, since she couldn’t with her mom.
Katie went to pick Molli up from Joey’s apartment and was determined not to fight, so they kept things short. Back at her dad’s house, Katie’s friend stopped over. She wondered how long Katie would stay at her dad’s. Katie said he told her she could stay there as long as she wanted, but she maybe didn’t believe in herself enough to think she could do things on her own. They talked about the situation with Joey and where Katie should go from there.
Alex and her friend went out to eat, and Arabella enjoyed a nice big piece of chocolate cake for her birthday. Alex was disappointed Matt hadn’t called to see Arabella on her birthday, and her friend couldn’t believe how much Matt was missing.
