Teen Mom S4 Episode 8 Recap

Teen Mom Season 4 Episode 8
"The Next Step"


Catelynn:
Tyler gets a call from April who informs him that she was hanging out with Butch (which shouldn't have been happening since there is a no contact order) and they ended up getting into a fight that led to him being arrested and thrown back in prison. April is pretty bruised up from the fight. Tyler tells Cate what happened so she goes over to her mom's house to check on her.
April explains the crazy fight that they had the night before and shows her the holes in the wall and how Butch choked her with a towel. She then gets emotional telling Catelynn how sorry she is for everything she has done in the past, especially when Catelynn placed Carly for adoption. Turns out April was only following Butches lead in being angry about the adoption. She says that she is sorry she ever chose a man over Catelynn. Then she has an equally emotional conversation with Tyler about his dad and how he chose drugs over his loved ones. 

Amber:
Gary is still great at pushing Amber's buttons and saying all the wrong things. Amber wanted to come by for a minute and see her before bed but was shot down. Gary almost seemed intoxicated while talking to her, his behavior was just odd. He wouldn't even agree to let Amber see Leah the next day.  When he finally does agree, he is rude on the phone with Amber's cousin Krystal so Amber looses her temper and calls him a name of course. Gary and Amber fight again on the phone right before he drops Leah off with her. 
There is one good part of this episode, Amber and Krystal take their kids to the playground and seem to have a really good time. 

Farrah:
This episode kicks off with Farrah taking Sophia to ride a pony which is super cute and fun. She decides that she should introduce Sophia to Daniel her new boyfriend. First though she has her first day of school! This episode shows a little bit of the terrible twos while Sophia is extra crazy and toddler-ish in this episode. She takes Sophia out to dinner with Daniel and they have a good time. Daniel seems nice and genuine and even skypes Farrah's mom with her.

Maci:
Maci's landlord sold the house she has been renting so now its time to find a new place to live. They talk about buying a home instead of renting. They look for houses and Maci talks about buying a house with Kyle and how she isn't ready to marry him or have kids with him yet. Of course her mother says its a great idea so they are going to go for it. They keep saying that they aren't going to break up but they actually do break up not long after buying this new house. They find a house that they like that has a huge back yard. It's $79,000 and just needs some TLC and seems perfect for them. So they sign the papers.

  2. Seriously, I used to like this site because there was no obvious favoritism, until recently.

    Gary wasnt pushing buttons. Leah was ready for bed. DUH! When a little kid is tired you dont bring something around to excite them, they will never go to sleep!! Then they will be cranky the next day. One would think someone with a child would know this. GUESS NOT!

    Gary didnt get back to Amber fast enough, so Amber was mad and calls Gary a fat ass. First off, she is no toothpick. Second, wow that rehab really helped with your anger. Oh wait, sorry, I forgot- GARY JUST KNOWS HOW TO PUSH AMBERS BUTTONS. LMAO.

    This comment may get deleted, but i dont care. I hate obvious favoritism. Heather Clouse did that a lot....IJS.

    1. Uhm....then obviously hun get out of her page and don't read her stuff if you don't like it. Its not that hard. (: IJS.

    2. Yes Gary was pushing buttons. As soon as Krystal asked him if he was going to let Amber see Leah, he said "Oh Amber actually wants Leah" in a really sarcastic and condescending tone as if she never asks for her. That seems to be what set Amber on edge, and obviously she's a firecracker waiting to explode. Gary's not innocent in this, but Amber is a basket case too.

      It has been discussed many times here and elsewhere that Gary is no model parent. He goes out and parties, gets drunk, and has nasty people around his child and/or he pawns his child off on his mother so that he can do all of the above. Amber is obviously a train wreck but a lot of people are still rooting for her, myself included.

      I really like Jamie's recaps. She always finds something positive to say instead of only posting hateful comments about everyone. I like her blog the best out of all the teen mom blogs.

    3. We obviously aren't watching the same show. lol
      Gary was being really sarcastic and rude to her. Yes its not always a good idea to excite a child right before bed but come one, considering the circumstances... she just got home from not seeing her for months, and can't even take her overnight because of the neighborhood she lives in. Sometimes you make exceptions. Or at least confirm the next days visit and be civil. After the conversations they had at the rehab facility its like Gary did a 180 and just wants to fight with her instead of make things better. It's not that I hate Gary or anything like that. I'm friends with him on fb actually lol but he does do things that are wrong and I'm not gonna kiss ass about it. Amber is wrong in calling him names. She clearly has problems still, but I can understand her anger most definitely.

      PS: why do people always bring up hc. It's funny that she is used to insult people but come on, no need to give more attention to her.

    4. I realy do think that Gary ALWAYS push Amber´s buttons. ALWAYS... Amber most of the time get angry with Gary around. I dont like Gary, he is not good for her or Leah. His mom take care oh Leah, not him. He dosen´t want that Amber get better, he dosen´t help Amer with her problems... I wish Amber could see this sooner.

    5. Gary ALWAYS pushes Ambers buttons and first off you have no idea what Amber has to go through.Leah is Ambers child to.She hasnt got to see leah for about 2 months and Gary got to see her everyday.Then when Krystal called Gary and asked if Amber was getting Leah he acted like Amber never asks to see Leah.So stop giving Amber crap.

    6. For all we know maybe Amber didn't really ask Gary for Leah (other than the one timeMTV cameras showed it which I guarentee was staged) so we should all stop assuming that she did. Esp considering she chose to go to jail for 5 years and not see her child over rehab. Also...why would your cousin call your child's father to see if you can visit with your child. That's so stupid and I would be annoyed too if I were gary.

    7. UHm Amber did ask for Leah.And you are just asuming that it was staged? WOWWWWW!!!!!!

    8. The whole freaking show is staged. They made kail put up a christmas tree to film "christmas" when she doesnt even believe in it. (she said so herself).and one time Maci's friends were talking about how they had to take bentley outside so that they could film when bentley "wasnt supposed to be there" (see her friend mimi's youtube for that statement in one of the Q and A videos) and MTV only showed her calling once right before bed time so we dont know that she asked any more than that time which is not enough to get angry about. You cant really think the show isn't staged. Theere were cameras at both gary and ambers house..they were expecting a phone convo btw them....

    9. oh ok do YOU run the freaking show now? so you know EVERYTHING was staged.

  3. I felt so bad for Tyler :( It was good to see another side to April tho, she actually has emotions besides being a beeoch!

    Im not crazy about Maci and Kyle trying to buy a house together, in recent news they just got back together. Im not sure how that fits into the storyline MTV is showing us. Either way, its not smart. In the event they were done for good, she would have no legal rights to live there.

    I think it was a bit too soon for Daniel to meet Sophia, but thats just me.

  4. The reason I think it's weird that Maci and Kyle wanted to buy a house is because they made it seem like only Kyle would be buying it, and Maci was complaining about wasting $13,000 on rent (which is completely understandable). But if she's not buying the house herself, the money is going towards an investment for Kyle, not for her. I guess if she believed that she and Kyle would last forever and that they would eventually be married, then it wouldn't be a complete waste, but she technically has no rights to that house so any money she puts into it only benefits Kyle in a financial sense until they are married.

    1. Which is why I don't get why her parents were just like "yeah go for it." Makes no sense.

    2. I agree. Either they left something out or the whole thing doesn't make much any sense. Why didn't Maci buy the house anyway? Doesn't she make a lot more than Kyle? Although she's probably run through all or most of her money anyway so maybe that's why.

  5. I'm sorry but Gary was being a complete jerk. He acts like Amber has no rights when it comes to Leah. He says when and where. That's frustrating for any mother. She doesn't take her for the babies safety no other reason. She tried to better herself and instead of supporting her he resorts right back to making her angry. He could of let her come by. I'm a mother I would have let her father come by and spend an hr with her to rebuild the relationship they both so desperately need.

    1. Did we watch the same episode? He let Leah come by for an entire day when she asked to have her. He didnt want her coming to see her for "5 minutes" right before she was going to sleep because A) she wouldn't have gone to sleep and B) he doesn't want Amber hanging out in his house

  6. I didn't watch Teen Mom lastnight so thanks for the recap.. I do wonder if amber and Gary's relationship was as toxic as it was before she even got pregnant.. seems all of it started after Leah was born since we only know her from being a few months along then having Leah. Gary and amber... its jus wow. They both know each others hot buttons and its worse for amber because she is so angry.. gosh, Tyler and catelynn are so strong, idk if I could've watched their parts without tearing up and plain out crying.. its amazing they turned out so well but that is definitely because they gave up their daughter and that made them stronger, as individuals and as a couple. Um maci and kyle... if they think they are ready, good luck to them. Altho, we all know they broke up and jus got back together a few days ago, well they made it official on social network. I didn't notice any comments on Farrah being rude so im guessing this was a good episode for her lol wish things weren't over a yr ago, or by now over 6 months ago... anyways, Thanks for the recap!

    1. Thanks for reading! :) And yes lol this was a good episode for Farrah. Although a lot of people give her crap over every little thing she does, she isn't all that bad!

  7. I think Amber was really drugged out on medication in this episode as well. Gary is a turd and he knows how to push Amber's buttons to fire her up and get his way in return. She seriously needs to get her shit straight and move out of Anderson.

  8. He wasn't that mean to her, Leah was literally getting into bed when Amber wanted to come by and yes seeing Amber would've prevented her from going to bed. He was nicely saying on the phone that he would bring her over the next day and she for no reasons starts calling him "fatass". I'm sorry but if the roles were reversed and my baby daddy was saying that to me i'd tell them f u. I wont bring Leah around until you start being nice to me for taking care of our daughter. Amber still has major issues.

  9. OMG. I feel so terrible for Tyler. I could never imagine a parent telling me that they love cocaine more than them. That is truly heartbreaking.

  10. 1- If Amber was so concerned about seeing her daughter why didn't she make the effort earlier in the day?

    2- Gary does use Leah against Amber as a means to control her. Gary is also really immature and has problems making good choices.

    3- Cate and Tyler are amazing. I think Tyler's Mom has been a pretty good influence (sounds like she lived through a lot of stuff), and that Tyler is a really positive influence on Cate. She makes wise choices for herself, but I think her life could have been significantly different if she did not hook up with Tyler. They seem to bring out the best in each other.

    4- Butch is a dumbass. Totally. (Poor Tyler!). And April should really be thinking about what is best for her and her children. I wonder what her poor little boy has been exposed to.

    5- Maci needs to stop being obsessed with the fact she is a "ginger" - like that defines her and sooooooooo special. If the thing you are most proud of (based on number of tweets) is your hair color... (And her astrological sign)...

  11. the house thing makes no sense. neither kyle nor maci have jobs. to qualify for any mortgage, you need a stable work history for a minimum of six months regardless of the amount of assets (money you have from mtv). this fiction about kyle putting the house in his name that mtv tried to sell is insulting to viewers. my suspicion is that maci paid cash and mtv hates to acknowledge that they have been paying teen moms hundreds of thousands a dollars a year to document how difficult teen parenthood is. in reality, most teen moms struggle financially for years. please mtv, keep it real and please kyle and maci, get jobs!

    1. Yes..i wouldn't doubt that that is really what happened. She makes plenty of money and Kyle doesn't have a job so how is he the one buying it. Must be nice to be a 20 year old teen mom and buying a house. that's not real life.
