Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 3 started out with Mackenzie at tumbling practice. She tried to be more supportive of Josh’s rodeo dreams, but her coach worried that she wouldn’t be able to pay for her schooling if Josh only was paid when he won rodeos.
Katie was frustrated to find overdraft fees from their bank account and confronted Joey on his weed smoking habits. They headed to his mom’s house for dinner and continued to argue about Joey smoking weed on the way there. Joey sat out in his truck, so his mom pulled up alongside him and encouraged him to go in and talk to Katie. He made his way inside and sat on the couch opposite from Katie. It didn’t take long before the two of them argued some more.
Alex’s mom discovered the mess Matt made of the basement and was disgusted. She called Alex down and told her she needed to get it cleaned up. Alex was firm on not cleaning it, so she called Matt and ordered him to come over. Two hours later, Matt finally showed up to clean out the basement. He left some of his things down there, so she tried to chase him down the street, but he and his mom drove off.
Devoin made an appearance at Briana’s for the first time in three weeks. She and Brittany sat in silence as he played with Nova for 10 minutes before leaving. The next day, Briana’s mom asked what happened and if he brought anything for Nova, which they told her he had not. Briana was over the situation and didn’t feel the need for Devoin in Nova’s life for the next 18 years.
Mackenzie and her mom went to the grocery store, and Mackenzie hoped Josh would win money at the rodeo. Meanwhile, Josh’s dad gave him a lecture on riding in the rodeo because of the damage it could do and the concussions he could get.
Briana told her mom she decided she wanted to tell Devoin to stay away, and her mom admitted she had told Briana’s dad the same thing. While Brittany was out with friends, Briana called Devoin and asked him to come over. Briana’s mom took Nova out of the room when he arrived so that they could talk. Briana told Devoin she felt like he wasn’t stepping up to be the father he was supposed to be, and he was disappointing her and his daughter. Briana told Devoin she didn’t want him around her or her daughter. Devoin told Briana that Nova needed a father and commented about Briana not having a dad, and that was when her mom appeared out of nowhere and started screaming at Devoin, telling him to get out. She even threw a pot outside at him as he walked down the sidewalk and admitted to Briana that she was pissed once he left.
Mackenzie and her family, along with Gannon, headed off to see Josh at the rodeo. They got lost on the way there and missed Josh’s ride – Mackenzie nearly had a meltdown in the car before they all got out and found Josh. He broke the bad news that he had landed on his head and hadn’t won any money.
Alex sat down with her mom to discuss custody arrangements with Matt. Alex wasn’t ready for Matt to be alone with Arabella and said she would agree to supervised visits.
In the aftermath of Devoin’s visit, Briana’s mom apologized to Nova for getting mad, but she explained she had given the kid chances for all this time. They re-filed their order of protection, which was approved, and Briana was ready to get Devoin out of her life.
Katie went with Molli and a friend to get pedicures, and they discussed the situation with Joey. Katie worried they would hit their breaking point soon.
While Alex taught her dance class, Matt met with his case worker, who told him he tested positive for marijuana. He didn’t seem to understand that he needed to stay completely clean. They discussed his living situation, and she recommended he go to a transitional living center that had a zero tolerance policy. She told Matt he would need to stay sober for a while before they could apply for visitation rights for his daughter.
Katie’s sister was supposed to watch Molli, but she was late, so they had to take Molli along to their therapy session. Right off the bat, Katie launched into the story about Joey smoking marijuana. She went on to explain that her dad had gotten in trouble for meth when she was younger, and Joey said he quit drinking and everything went out the window when he found out she was pregnant. Joey agreed he would give the marijuana up if that was what it took to keep his family intact.
Mackenzie talked to Josh about how she didn’t think he could make a career out of rodeoing, and it would just be a side job. Josh didn’t agree and thought he could do it. Mackenzie worried they wouldn’t have a nice wedding or nice house, and Josh explained he was passionate about what he does.
Briana, her mom, and Brittany met with a police escort to serve Devoin the order or protection. The police came back out and told them it had been served, and Briana found Devoin’s post on Twitter from two minutes prior: “I’M A FREE MAN!” Brittany said she would father Nova.
Tune into Teen Mom 3 next week Monday night to see what happens when Briana and Devoin go to court, what decisions Katie makes about her schooling, Alex get the call that Matt was rushed to the hospital and may have overdosed, and Mackenzie struggle to make her relationship with Josh work.
