Tonight’s finale of Teen Mom 2 gave us the ending this season deserved – happiness after a whole lot of drama. So much happened from start to finish, this season actually felt like two rolled into one. Kailyn Lowry started out finalizing her divorce with ex-husband Javi Marroquin after so many contentious back and forths about everything from him coming over unannounced to her surprise pregnancy with another man. Leah Messer dealt with mild yet frustrating behavioral problems with the girls, all while trying to get her new dream of motivational speaking on track. Chelsea DeBoer and husband Cole settled into newly married life, dealt with the increasing drug use issues of her ex and navigated the newborn stage of baby Watson with ease before finally getting the wedding reception they always wanted. Briana DeJesus joined us as the newest Teen Mom and the drama she brought didn’t disappoint as she dumped baby daddy Luis in the middle of her pregnancy. Unfortunately, her worries about Luis not stepping up to the plate, just like Nova’s dad, proved to be right and her stress levels rose over every single episode. Jenelle Evans and boyfriend David Eason welcomed baby Ensley, moved into their dream home and got engaged. But it wasn’t all sunshine thanks to Barb winning permanent custody of Jace and with it, permanently damaging her relationship with Jenelle so much so that she wasn’t invited to their wedding. Now that we are all caught up, let’s get started with how everything wraps up tonight!
Leah’s twins are adjusting well to being in separate classes in school so that Ali can have an aide with her at all times. Addie is about to start pre-K tomorrow but isn’t sure whether or not ex Jeremy Calvert will make it back from work in time to see her first day. He hasn’t been home to see Addie in few weeks and Leah is really hoping he can make it so she calls him to get an update. Jeremy says he will do his best but it doesn’t sound promising.
Addie’s first day arrives and Jeremy doesn’t make it but his mom does and she entertains them all with stories about Jeremy’s first day of school. Addie seems genuinely excited about pre-K and hops onto the bus without issue.
At the end of the day, Leah and her sister go pick up all the girls and Addie tells her how great her first day of school was. Then she quickly tells on Gracie for saying a bad word on the bus. At home over dinner, Leah tells them how proud she is that they all overcame their challenges this year.
Kail feels like she can go into labor at any moment and she’s right. A few hours after mentioning how she feels, she goes into labor and rushes to the hospital. Turns out, her labor was so quick, she didn’t even have time for an epidural and the baby was out in two hours flat. Thankfully, baby daddy Chris made it there and was even helpful and involved during the delivery process. Everyone comes over to meet the new baby and Lincoln suggests they call him Climber since he still has no name. Kail lets the boys hold their baby brother and everyone seems genuinely happy for the new arrival.
The day has arrived for Chelsea to finally have her wedding reception to celebrate her nuptials from almost a year ago and she and Cole are excited to party. Chelsea, Aubree and her bridesmaids go to the salon to get ready and take pics. When Chelsea emerges in her dress, she looks beautiful and happy. I seriously love her dress! The sun is shining as her guests gather in a tent and watch Chelsea and Cole get introduced and dance their first dance. In a box-of-tissues-needed moment, Aubree surprises them with a sweet recording that she made to play at the start of their first dance. Yes, I’m crying – how could you not! Chelsea and Cole look every bit the happy married couple and family that they are.
Briana is taking Nova to her first day of school and Devoin won’t be there due to his work schedule. She did tell him that she filed for child support and he didn’t seem to care, which is a relief to Briana after she assumed he would be vindictive about it. As they drop Nova off in her classroom, she looks shy and scared about her first day and Briana cries as she leaves the school. Later, Nova emerges all smiles and had a great day, made even greater now that Devoin is also there to greet her.
They decide to go out to lunch to celebrate and Nova wants Devoin to come so badly, Briana decides to have him come and set aside all the tension between them. That doesn’t last long and Briana gets upset when she finds out Devoin is actually working two jobs but still not helping out financially. Devoin fires back that he never gets to have Nova come to his place. Roxanne tries to moderate but quickly loses her cool when Devoin brings up that Briana doesn’t even know what it’s like to have a father in her life. The end result is Roxanne standing on the bench of the booth they are eating at and yelling at Devoin, with MTV security finally pulling her away. Devoin leaves in a flurry of middle fingers. Outside the restaurant, Roxanne smokes a cigarette and cries about how childish he is. Devoin tells the producer he’s happy that Briana filed for child support since now he can get some right of his own to Nova.
After threatening to cancel the wedding at the end of last week’s episode, Jenelle and David worked things out off camera and the wedding is proceeding as scheduled. As Jenelle gets ready, she reminds us all again that mom Barb wasn’t invited because she doesn’t approve of David.
Barb is vacationing with her friend in South Carolina and getting all emotional about it but still refuses to budge when her friend suggests she try and work it out with David. In Barb’s mind, he alienated her from Jenelle and the final straw was her winning custody of Jace. She doesn’t plan on that changing and she sure isn’t about to try and make nice with David, so she guesses she just won’t have a relationship with Jenelle. Her friend points out how stubborn she’s being but all Barb does is cry.
After getting ready at the house all day, the big moment has arrived and Jenelle gets into her dress so she can walk down the aisle. Maryssa carries Ensley down the aisle as flower girls and Jenelle rounds the corner with Jace. David wells up with tears for his bride and Andre the MTV security guard reads them their vows. Kaiser toddles down the aisle to present them with their rings and they officially become man and wife. Their guests all cheer as they are announced as Mr. and Mrs. Eason and they walk off into married life.
It looks like for the most part, all the moms got a happy ending (ok, not Briana) but I’m looking forward to next week’s reunion when we get to rehash all the behind the scenes drama and then some!
