Teen Mom: Season 2, “Trial and Error” Recap
The show opens with Maci and Bentley watching Kyle ride dirtbikes. Maci then decides that it’s a good idea for Bentley, Kyle, and Maci to all get on the dirtbike at one time and ride. Not smart!
Amber has taken Leah to the library to help find out some information on how to get her GED. Is she ever going to get this thing? She then voices concern that she doesn’t want Leah knowing that Gary has a diploma when she has a GED. She doesn’t want him holding anything over her head. Gary advises her to just forget classes and try and take the test.
Farrah is upset about losing her free babysitting because of making too much money. She wants Debra to help out, but she has community service. Things are all better between them now? Farrah allows her friend, Ali to watch Sophia. Farrah voices her concerns about her finances and Ali recommends talking to her parents. Farrah pretty much says her parents won’t help and she’s on her own.
Catelynn is happy that her life is drama free at the moment. Butch and Tyler talk about Catelynn’s lies and Tyler lets him know that they worked everything out. Butch lets him know that Tyler can come to him anytime he has a problem and wants to talk. Butch then gets a phone call that he has to go to rehab. Again!
Maci, Bentley, and Kyle go out to eat for their last night in Nashville. Kyle proposes that Maci move to Nashville to be with Kyle. Ryan’s not going to like this. Maci says that she will think about it.
Amber goes back to meet with the counselor from last season to talk about her GED. Amber is worried that people will judge her for having a GED instead of a diploma. She decides that she will get her GED for the moment, and then possibly get her high school diploma later down the line. I doubt that will happen.
Butch and Catelynn come over to let Tyler know that Butch must go to rehab. Tyler is happy that it’s rehab and not jail. He wants his dad to actually take the rehab stay seriously. Catelynn is worried how rehab will effect everyone.
Farrah tells her boss that she needs more hours because she was scammed and he says they will try to work it out.

Maci drops Bentley off at Ryan’s so she can take an exam. She doesn’t let Ryan know about her plans to move to Nashville. She looks into transferring to a college close to Kyle. She finds out that it won’t be a problem.
Amber’s mom is upset with Butch being in rehab and she’s taking it out on Catelynn. She’s mad that Catelynn doesn’t help out around the house. I feel really bad for Catelynn during this scene. Her mom needs some help with anger issues.
Ali brings Sophia home to Farrah and lets them know what they did all day. Ali expresses that it must be difficult for Farrah to be a “mom” everyday. Ali wants Farrah to go speed dating. I already don’t like Ali. Farrah needs to focus on Sophia and herself right now.
Maci and Bentley are looking at new child care for Bentley in Nashville. Bentley calls Kyle daddy. Uh-oh! Maci is worried this could scare Kyle away.
Catelynn calls Tyler to come pick her up since her and her mom are fighting. Catelynn confides in Tyler’s mom about the fight she had with her mom about Carly. Her mom really needs to get over it already.

Amber is studying for her GED test. Gary says that he wants to married to a woman who has her stuff together and Amber flips out... as usual. Amber goes to take the test and is frustrated 10 seconds in. Amber failed every section of the GED test. Amber wants a vitamin to help her remember things while studying.
Maci lets her friends know that she’s moving to Nashville to be with Kyle. Her friends are upset that she’s leaving, but they support her.
Catelynn returns home to try and make things better with her mom. Her mom is still angry and wants Catelynn to help out. Catelynn then goes and cleans the house. Hopefully that makes her mom happy. They decide to order pizza and watch cartoons.
