Maci Denies Ryan A Sleepover With Bentley
Maci has finally had enough of Ryan being irresponsible. When it came to Ryan’s weekend with Bentley, she allowed her son to have a sleepover with his friend instead of going to his dad’s house. Ryan in turn, asked Maci if he could have Bentley sleepover on that Sunday, and he would bring him to school bright and early the next morning. It took Maci all over 60 seconds to deny him that chance. Listen, it was a bit hard to watch, because you start to feel bad for Ryan, but then you remember all the crappy things he HAS done.
Amber Struggles To Deal With Her Relation With Leah
Tonight, we saw a heartbreaking scene between Leah and Amber. They were sitting on the couch when Leah started to tell her a story about visiting a haunted house with her “parents.” That rubbed Amber the wrong way and she asked Leah, “Your parents?” To that Leah again said yes, my parents. Amber’s cousin, Krystal was also on the couch and ask Leah who her parents were. Leah stated loud and clear, “Gary… and stepmom.” Ouch. Amber gets extremely upset and reveals to her cousin that she has had these talks with Leah — but clearly she’s not getting it.
Carly Meets Nova For The First Time
Catelynn is dealing with tons of anxiety before the wedding. She is super worried about Brandon and Teresa Davis meeting Butch in person, as well as Carly meeting Nova. Cate winds up staying in bed and trying to fight off her depressed feelings. Meanwhile, her mom and stepdad came to stay at their house, so Butch winds up taking the camper out to a campsite to stay — kind of awkward. While at the campsite, Tyler reveals to Butch that he attempted suicide back when he was 12. He tells his dad that he tried to hang himself in the back yard of their home, and wound up having rope burns around his neck for weeks. It was so awful to hear him discuss it with Butch who had no idea.
Later, Nova officially got to meet her older sister Carly. Cameras weren’t able to film much, but you did get to see pics of the two sisters playing together and it was too cute. We truly hope these girls wind up developing a tight relationship when they get older. But it’s still tough to hear how hurt Cate feels when she has to say goodbye to Carly and return back to her life with Nova. That’s a tough pill to swallow.
Sophia Begs Farrah For A Daddy
It was a rough episode for Farrah — per usual, but this time we actually felt bad for her. Farrah decided to take Sophia to see Derek’s parents and to visit his gravesite in Missouri. While in the car, Sophia starts to
She starts to say that she wished her dad didn’t die and she questions why Simon can’t be her dad. This turns into a a huge meltdown for Sophia and she starts to scream that she wants a daddy and that she wants to die.“But I want a daddy! I want a daddy now! Daddy!” She then starting to say, “Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy! I wanna die. I wanna die. I wanna die.” Sophia kept saying over and over and over again. It was heartbreaking. Farrah wound up bursting into tears and told her daughter she needs to stop saying that because it breaks her heart. Clearly, Soph doesn’t understand, but we have to agree — it’s so sad. Later they went to visit Derek’s grave, and that too was very, very sad.
