Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 3 started out with Mackenzie and Josh out to dinner with Gannon. Mackenzie was excited and asked Josh to go to prom with her – first, he said no, but his second response of “I don’t care” was sufficient enough for Mackenzie to go dress shopping. On the way to dress shopping, Mackenzie admitted she didn’t have any money saved, and she was turned off by the fact Josh wasn’t working. While she and her friend tried dresses on, Mackenzie wondered if she should just borrow a dress instead of buying one.
After his big experience watching Nova, Devoin wanted to bring her back to his place to watch her there. He told Briana he would come by after work, but he never showed up. Briana talked to her mom about the situation.
Katie called her friend Veronica to talk about her fight with Joey. She gave her all the details and admitted they hadn’t talked since. Her friend told her he needed to have the motivation to fix things for Molli. Meanwhile, Joey talked to his step-dad, who reminded him to think about his daughter. He encouraged Joey to try going to therapy with Katie to make their family work.
Matt started spending more time with his friends and even started talking to another girl online. He left and went for a walk with his friend, while Alex told her friend what she found out. Alex was frustrated he went behind her back when he was staying at her house while she was feeding him.
While Josh picked his tux up, Mackenzie tried to catch up on homework. Josh and his friend talked about sex, and his friend wondered why Mackenzie was on birth control if they weren’t having sex. Josh laughed, and the two of them continued their inaudible conversation from the excessive amount of chew being stored in their mouths.
Briana and her mom met with people from a child-proofing service, since Nova was moving around more. Despite the expensive cost, they went ahead with it, and Briana’s mom paid for it. Briana was frustrated Devoin didn’t have to help at all. The next day, Devoin said he was going to come over. He played basketball with his friends and gave them his sob story of trying to be more involved with Nova but not being able to have her at his house.
Katie asked Joey to come over to talk, so she asked why he got so angry. Joey blamed Katie for saying things to provoke him. They agreed they should handle their problems as adults, and Joey apologized for freaking out. Katie mentioned wanting to go to counseling, and Joey agreed.
Alex confronted Matt on his Facebook messages with another girl and screamed to ask why he lied. He basically said nothing, so she left him to watch Arabella while she went to work.
Instead of buying her prom dress, Mackenzie borrowed one from a friend. She tried it on and talked to her sister about remaining abstinent with Josh, since her mom would not be happy if she found out otherwise.
Joey and Katie met with a couples’ counselor. Katie admitted the two of them get into fights and yell a lot. She wanted them to get along and have a healthy relationship. Joey didn’t want to fight. The counselor explained they would get what they give out of it and needed to give 100% for it to work.
Just when Briana was about to give up hope, Devoin showed up, and Nova stared him down. Briana told him about baby-proofing the house, and Devoin told her Briana didn’t share Nova with him. Her sister, Brittany, chimed in and tried to explain to him about sharing financial responsibilities. Briana became frustrated and yelled at Devoin, so he walked out. Later on, Briana filled her mom in, so she called Devoin to ask what happened. He told her they had gotten into an argument, and he walked out because he was tired of arguing. Briana’s mom explained to him that Briana would let Nova go eventually, but he needed to earn her trust first. In the end, Devoin agreed to help pay half of child-proofing and said he wanted to be in Nova’s life.
Joey’s mom watched Molli while he and Katie moved into their new apartment.
Mackenzie and Josh took pictures before prom and even jumped around on the trampoline in their prom gear. Gannon wore a mini tux and took pictures with them before going back home for Mackenzie’s mom to watch him. After prom was over, Mackenzie and Josh sat outside on a curb, and Josh joked he was going coon hunting. They went back to Mackenzie’s house, where Gannon was tucked away, sleeping.
Alex picked her friend up and told her how badly things were going with Matt. She taught dance class and texted her mom to tell her what was going on. When Alex’s mom got home, she asked Matt what happened. At first, he was calm and told her things just weren’t going to work with Alex; but then Alex got home from work, the two screamed at each other and nearly got into a physical altercation. Alex’s mom told Matt to get his stuff and get out before telling Alex he had to leave. Alex continued to whine and scream about the situation and how Matt was her best friend that she trusted with everything and got nothing in return. Matt packed up his things and left while Alex sat quietly at the kitchen table.
Tune into Teen Mom 3 next week Monday night to see what happens when Josh makes his return to bull riding, Briana feels like a burden to her mom and sister, how Katie and Joey adjust to their new place, and how Alex and Matt get along when they meet for the first time after he moved out.
