'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Nathan Griffith's Fight With Jenelle Evans' Mom Turns Ugly

Nathan Griffith

Ever since we met Jenelle Evans on 16 and Pregnant, we've known that her mom, Barbara, has had opinions. Whether it was on her first baby daddy, Andrew, or Jenelle's later boyfriend, Kieffer, Babs has never been shy about making her thoughts known. And now that Jenelle is dating and pregnant with Nathan Griffith's baby, she's making sure that Jenelle always knows how she feels.

So on tonight's Teen Mom 2 episode, Barbara strongly disapproved of Nathan's money-spending ways and, boy, did he know it. Jenelle is in the final weeks of her pregnancy with baby Kaiser and is planning her baby shower. So naturally, that means a baby registry. But when the couple lists a Peg Perego car seat, Babs doesn't approve. Why? It's $200 and makes no sense. 


Not only that, but Jenelle reveals that the couple has been fighting more and more before their son arrives. Yet when Barbara voices her thoughts on the car seat, Nathan immediately explodes. There's screaming, there's shouting, and there's a lot of "don't tell me what to do" statements before he storms out of the house. And most shockingly of all: Jenelle sits calmly on the sofa as her mom and boyfriend continue with the screaming. Bravo!

Meanwhile, Kailyn Lowry is still dealing with baby Lincoln's breastfeeding strike, so while her mom, Suzi, stays with Isaac at home, Kail goes to a lactation consultant. And while Kail gets some good breastfeeding advice from the professionals, Isaac reveals to Suzi that since Javi has left, he "doesn't care about us" anymore. Thankfully, when Kail returns, she sets the record straight and explains to Isaac that Javi's month-long absence is for the best.

Over in West Virginia, Leah Calvert's ex, Corey, finally takes Ali's wheelchair for the first time. Unfortunately, it's stuck in slow mode and won't drive quickly enough for use. Never fear, however, because the girls still get to go to the zoo. And while Ali's condition continues to persist, Grace is starting to act out more and more. Since Ali gets so much attention from mom and dad, the other twin feels left out, so Leah finally has a conversation with her about her sister's diagnosis.

And finally, Chelsea Houska finds out that while Aubree had visitation with Adam Lind and his family, her baby daddy got arrested yet again. This time, for driving with a suspended license. And as for Adam's parents? They didn't even bother to let Chelsea know. To make matters even worse, she starts noticing a pattern. Every time Aubree goes away for the weekend, she comes back and misbehaves. So in an effort to keep her behaving, they make a color chart to track her behavior. Clearly, it's bound to go well because Aubree really wants to go to the bouncy place as her reward. We can't blame her there.

Do you agree with Nathan or Barbara?
