'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Jo Is Being a Bigger Baby Than Isaac

Kailyn One of the hallmarks of any Teen Mom 2 episode is drama, and most of the time, it involves some kind of custody situation. This episode was no different in that regard. This time it was Kailyn and Jo's turn to battle it out over baby Isaac and who gets more time with him.

Of course, Kailyn and Jo weren't the only ones squabbling. Adam and Chelsea continued their on-again, off-again drama with this being an "off" week. All this while Chelsea was ALSO trying to pass her GRE test. Lucky for her, she did, but it seemed maybe touch and go for a bit.

Jenelle brought her usual drama with her mother who had refused to bail her out of jail last week. A friend came through, but Jenelle was FULL of anger and took it out on Barbara full force. Of course, as usual, it was Jace who paid the price as he was left to wail for his mommy. Sigh.

Finally there was Leah. This week was the first we have had a chance to meet Jeremy, the man we all know will become her husband and the father of her third baby. Hopefully this will work out better than Corey, but at least Corey and Leah appear to be trying to be amicable for their girls, right?

Sadly they are the only ones. Jo made no apologies for his "I get Isaac every weekend" stance, which, really, after I realized the truth, makes no sense. What father gets his kid EVERY weekend, especially, as Kailyn pointed out, when he goes out and leaves him with the grandparents? How is that fair?

Answer: It's not.

Jo was being really immature in this episode. At first glance, it seemed like Kailyn was in the wrong, but she had given Jo every weekend with her son. Can you even imagine? Weekends are when we go to amusement parks, sleep in and cuddle in the morning, watch cartoons, and go to brunch. Kailyn would never have had any of that with her baby son. That's not fair in the least. That's horribly unfair, in fact.

So why was Jo being so hard on Kailyn? He was lucky he'd had as many weekends as he had! To me, it seems like Jo often gives Kailyn a hard time just because he can. He knows how nervous she gets and he seems to love to torment her. Even last year after they slept together, he acted like a complete jerk. Maybe he is still getting her back for the way she once treated him, but no matter what the reason, he is being terribly immature and it isn't good for the former couple's son. I hope at some point he gets his head on straight and stops tormenting Kailyn.

As far as I can tell, she is in the right here and Jo is being one big crybaby.

Who do you think is right in this fight?

LOL - Chelsea will take the GRE right after Jenelle stops toking up. I'd wager $100 she couldn't even SPELL GRE. Yeah, it's late but seriously...proof.

I spent every week end with my dad, I couldn't imagine my mom not wanting time to herself after taking care of three children under ten all week and working 2 jobs. I think a lot of parents give up every weekend, as a working parent I don't only work monday through friday and having my son on those days aren't a priority.

I think Kailyn is doing everything out of jealousy and being stupid,girl needs to grow up and just focus on her kid (at least from what I've seen on the show)

Christine House

how is she bing jealousy when jo has his kid he goes out just about every weekend so why should he have him on that weekend not fair to kailyn at all

I don't think K should be going by whatever the "standard" is but figuring out that during the time Jo has Isaac he is leaving him with someone else espeically if it's to go party is something else

Kailyn didn't have a problem with Jo having Isaac every weekend until he rejected her and got a new girlfriends. So I don't believe her decision is about being with Isaac more. Even if he is going out every weekend (which she has no proof of, she showed exactly one picture as her evidence) it doesn't mean that he isn't still spending time with Isaac. They need to go to court and have a judge decide. I think Kailyn and Jo are like Maci and Ryan. Kailyn wants more time with Isaac so that Jo has less (which is selfish in my opinion cause he seems like a great dad, she didn't even deny it when he said 'he raises the bar' on being Isaac's dad), and Jo's mom wants Jo to have more time with Isaac so that she can spend more time with him.

Jo didn't want Kailyn and that's when she got jealous of the new gf and started this drama.. Not cause she actually cares.

Leah seems to have issues with getting too attached to men too quickly.. She rushes into relationships as marriage..she needs to slow the hell down.

Chelsea is dumb. I don't know how or why you would run back to the same POS every time. It will not change this time!!! Get over him already.

Janelle pisses me off to the one millionth power. She deserves everything that is happening to her and I would have never bailed her out either. She should rot in jail.


i work 6 on 2 off..i don't have a "weekend off" when i do it is once every other mth, they need to go back to court and get a normal  custody order. I enjoy what time I do have with my kids. Jo is just a spoil ass man I would go back and get it to where he is an eow parent like everyone else.

I love how its not fair for Kailynn to miss those things, but its fair for the father to not only miss them, but miss every day as well. Mothers are selfish and self-centered. I guess being a child of split households has given me a unique point of view.
