Catelynn gets emotional on the last day of therapy. (Photo: vh1.com)
This season's finale starts where the last episode left off: with Joe and screaming at each other and them each going to their significant others to vent. Dustin tries to calm Heather down telling her his opinion of people doesn't really matter, while Joe storms into his bedroom venting to Abbey about classless and pathetic Heather and everyone in the house is. (Really Joe, I'm sure every single person in the house has more class than you do. When Joe and Abbey come out of the kitchen, Joe starts to controll who Abbey associates with by telling Catelynn to stay away from her.
Later, Joe sits down with Temple to talk out what happened. Temple gives him wise advise, but Joe gets defensive, telling her she's on everyone elses team. After this talk Joe and Abbey decide they have had enough of everyone in the house, so they decide to leave early.
No, Joe. You're upset because she's telling you the truth and you don't want to hear it!
On their final night of therapy, the couples get to spend some alone time on dates to acess their relationship and discuss their futures.
Dustin and Heather go to a restaurant for a romantic dinner. As they talk about their future, Dustin pulls out a surprise for Heather: a gorgeous bracelet symbolizing his commitment to her. Heather is stunned and the two of them have a great time on their date.
Meanwhile, Flav is pulling out all the stops for his dinner date with Liz, first surprising her with a room full of flowers that literally looks like a garden. Liz is impressed as they go to their date to talk about their future. They discuss the challenges they are about to face with a baby on the way and how they will get through them.
This is the first time we see Liz happy in weeks.
Instead of going to dinner, Catelynn and Tyler decide to stay back at the house and have an intimate yet romantic date in the hot tub. They discuss their decision to call off their wedding and how to move forward in their relationship. They come to the conclusion that even though they're not ready to marry, the love they have for each other won't change.
These two are still as adorable as ever ;)
Chingy and Temple decide to cancel their date, due to their relationship problems and constant bickering. After getting some helpful advice from Tyler, Temple comes to the conclusion that she has had enough and if therapy didn't help their relationship, nothing will. Chingy and Temple attend one last couples session with Dr. Jenn to discuss how to part ways respectfully and peacefully.
Chingy and Temple's split was definately for the best!
On the last day of therapy, Jenn has one last group session with the couples where they discuss their journey. Many of the couples and even the couselors get emotial as they reflet on the progress they've made as individuals and as couples. After the metting, the couples start packing up and preparing to go home.
Joe and Abbey return to the house to discuss the fight with Heather and the progress they've made in therapy. (Jenn is going to continue to work with them in outpatient therapy as well as get Abbey help with her eating disorder.) The couple then returns to the house to make ammends with everyone. The couples all their goodbyes and all head home.
I don't know amount of therapy can fix Joe's attitude!

In Teen Mom Maci Bookout's special you get to see where Maci is now: raising her 4-year old son Bentley and finally getting to be a normal college student.
Maci starts off the special by telling everyone what has changed since her Teen Mom days. She is now single (or was when the special was filmed) and lives with two of her new college friends in what they call, "The Treehouse".
Maci and her friends go bowling with Bentley and we get to see a little bit of how she parents Bentley. When he throw a tantrum, Maci takes him to the bathroom and spanks him. This was an act so controversial that she and her Teen Mom co-star Tyler Baltierra had to come to her defense via Twitter. (Really people, spanking lightly is NOT abuse).
We then get to see Ryan and his annoying girlfriend (now ex) bitch about what what Maci does on the weekends. They go on and on about how Maci and her friends partying during weekends when Bentley isn't there hurts him. (If Bentley isn't there, so what if she goes out and enjoys herself!)
When Maci and her friends go out to a club, they see Ryan there. (Didn't he have Bentley that night?) She and Ryan briefly catch up and Ryan evens gets a little flirty. The next day, Maci says she doesn't she and Ryan will get back together, but if he were to ask her to dinner as a friend, she would say yes.

Joe vs. Heather. Source: vh1.com
So this episode starts off with Tyler and Catelynn sitting outside together. Tyler calls his mother and when he tells her that the wedding is off, she is very excited and happy that he and Catelynn have come to this decision. She knew that Tyler isn't truly happy with everything in his life and that they both need work their own individual issues before walking down the isle.
So glad Tyler's mom took the news well:)
Before the first therapy session of this episode, the couples notice a lie detector on the table in the therapy room. When they arrive at the therapy session, they are relieved to find out that they will not be using it. Instead, Dr. Jenn brings in a human lie detector who is more accurate. She digs deep into the couples' actions and body language. She then talks about what these actions mean about their relationships and what they could mean for the couples's futures.
She particualarly digs deep into Joe and Abbey's relationship and their fears for the future. When she digs deep into Abbey's fears, Abbey has a breakdown and admits that she is afraid her eating disorder will kill her.
Abbey has a hard time admitting her fears to the group.
After the group therapy session, Dr. Jenn decides to put more of her attention towards Abbey and helping her recover from her eating disorder. Having suffered an eating disorder herself, Jenn know exactly what Abbey needs in order to take the first step towards recovery. She takes Abbey to a restaurant and asks her to make a list of all the foods she is the most afraid of trying. Jenn then orders some of those foods and asks her to try some of them. This helps Abbey take the first step towards finding the joy in food again.
So many scary foods, so little time!
Next, Jenn focuses her attention on Catelynn and the issues she has with her mother, April. When April agrees to fly out to the therapy house, she and Catelynn attend a session with Dr. Jenn where they talk about her alcohol addiction during Catelynn's childhood and how it affects their relationship now. April also talks about her own childhood trauma and she uses alcohol to numb the pain.
This was a much-needed session for Catelynn and her mom.
Flave approached Dustin about Joe showing his Dustin's sex tapes to everyone in house and he gets pissed off. Then, as the couples are having dinner together in the house, Joe starts a blowout fight with Heather about her boyfriend's past. When Joe proceeds to throw water at Heather, Dustin steps in and threatens to give Joe a much-needed, much-deserved ass whooping.
Mess with my girl and you answer to me, pal.

Next Week: In the season finale, Joe and Abbey leave the therapy house early, and the other couples meet to discuss their futures.
Nikki at her bachelorette party.
The time has come in this episode to do what most brides and grooms do before their wedding: have bachelor and bachelorette parties.
Daphne and Bay surprise Nikki with a bachelorette party to let loose and fun in the midst of all the stress she's under. Things quickly change for the stressful when Nikki gets drunk and calls her boss to leave an angry message on his phone. When she and Daphne go to work to erase the message, his office door is locked, but luckily the janitor is there and can door for them. However, he tell the boss and John Kennish finds out what happened.
Toby is on way to his bachelor party when he receives a surprising call from his girlfriend, telling him that she had contracted chlamydia. Since he and Emmett had both slept with her, they go the clinic together instead of going to the party. What a fun way to spend a bachelor party! Then, they find out they won't be able to get results for 8-10 business days and Toby's wedding is less than a week away. Oh no!
Meanwhile, Bay is trying to get Ty out his deployment and asks her dad if he can pull any strings.

Flav in a group session with Dr. Jenn. http://vh1.mtvnimages.com/mobile/vh1_mobilepreview/flipbooks/Shows/Couples_Therapy/308/2.jpg?quality=0.85
After getting into a heated argument, Flav and Joe each meet up with Dr. Jenn to talk about what happened. While Flav is ready to make peace with Joe, Joe is being his usual doshebag self and continues to trash talk him. The two men and Abbey (why was she there?) sit down together with Dr. Jenn make ammends... for now.
Joe and Flav bury the hatchet and get along for once.
While Dr. Jenn is busy dealing with Flav and Joe, another therapist is meeting with Tyler to talk about the issues he has with his dad. Tyler likes it better when his dad is in prison because whenever he gets out, he starts to worry about him dying of a drug overdose. The therapist reminds Tyler that what happens to his dad is not his responsibility and he shouldn't blame himself for what happens in the future. Tyler agrees, but is having a hard time letting go. When Catelynn comes outside to check on him, he gets emotional and Catelynn is there to comfort him.
These two couldn't be any cuter :)
In the next group therapy session they talk about a topic that hasn't been addressed yet: sex. Tyler explains the insecurity he feels when Catelynn doesn't want to do it, Dustin and Heather talk about how Dustin's past in porn affects their sex life, and Chingy and Temple talk about being on different pages on if they want to continue having sex or not.
The couples then go a junkyard for a special exercise on hurt and anger. Tyler is he first one to go releasing some built up aggression about his childhood, especially his dad. His finishes, feel much better, saying it was, "My best exercise yet."
Tyler has needed and exercise like this for a long time!
Dr. Jenn then to Joe, but Joe, being his usual doushebag self, refuses to participate because he "doesn't believe in violence" (Yeah, Joe. You don't believe in violence, but you believe in judging and/or verbally attacking everyone in the house? YEAH THAT MAKES TOTAL SENSE!!!) Abbey is reluctant as well until Dr. Jenn reveals a special surprise: a scale. Once Abbey sees the scale, Joe encourages her to beat the crap out of it and does so, feeling so much better afterwards.
Abbey vs. The Scale
Dr. Jenn then turns to Liz and asks if she wants to break some dishes. Liz agrees right away letting out all the built up anger from Flav's betrayal.
Liz probably needed this exercise more than anyone else in the house!
In the end, this exercise makes Flav emotional as he is finally beginning to understand Liz.
Flav and Liz have a touching moment after the anger exercise.

Emily's girlfriend surprises her with a birthday present early: a meeting with a professional swim trainer. However, when Emily goes to the meeting she finds out her girlfriend didn't tell the coach about her injury and it wouldn't be realistic for her to be ready on time for swimming season because of this. Her girlfriend later throws her a surprise birthday party in an attempt to cheer her up, but they come to the heartbreaking realization that they won't be able to go to college together.

When they get there, Ty pressures Bay climb a climbing pole and then jump down. Bay is resistant to the idea, but decides to do it because she trusts Ty. Ty sees this as a test to see if they can handle being apart while he is gone. However his plan backfires and the two get into a huge, causing Bay to disappear for two hours.

Joe Francis and Abbey Wilson.
This episode starts off, once again, where the last episode left off. Paramedics finally convince Flav and Liz to go to the hospital so Liz can get checked out. After this happens, Dr. Jenn sits the other couples down to discuss if this incident triggers any traumatic childhood memories. Catelynn and Tyler open up about cops coming to their homes as children to take their parents. Tyler, specifically, relives several incidences where cops smashed windows in the middle of the night and how it still affects him now, sleeping on edge.
The only person not present for this meeting is Joe, due to a prior engagement. Without Joe there Abbey is able to talk openly about her relationship and how he makes her feel. Tyler notices this change right away, pointing out that Abbey is quiet and submissive with Joe present, but more talkative when he's not around. Tyler was born for this and will make an amazing counselor one day!
Also in the session, Abbey opens up about how Joe is always correcting her. She breaks down and admits that Joe always makes her feel stupid.
It's nice to see Abbey talk for once!
After celebrating his 40th birthday (yes, he and Abbey are 14 years apart in age), Joe goes into an intense personal session with Dr. Jenn. After a group session about entitlement, Dr. Jenn digs deep into the roots of Joe's controlling habits. These range from his traumatic and abusive childhood to the fear of Abbey dying from her eating disorder.
After the session, the couples meet as Flav delivers the news of Liz's pregnancy and all goes down. from here. Joe calls out Flav for not knowing for so long and the two get into an explosive fight. Although they we both acting stupid in this scene, I have to side with Flav and Liz on this one. Though I'm sure they annoyed the other couples with their drama, there are times that Joe and Abbey just need to keep their mouths shut and stay out of other people's relationships.
Wow, just wow.

After completing the program, she met Joey and the rest is history. Now that she is a new fiance and mom-to-be, she is getting her life back where it needs to be. Congrats to the happy couple and I wish them all the best!
This episode becomes intense as Hannah does something drastic to get her mother out of jail-convict herself of the murder that her mother was convicted of. In order to get people to believe that she is guilty, she turns to the last person anyone would expect one of the Liars to turn to: Mona. Mona gives Hannah tips on how to make her case believeable but the rest of the cast is worried that she is throwing her whole future away.

Next Week: Toby's parents find out what Nikki's family is really like, and they attempt everything possible to keep Bay from continuing to see Ty.
For the past few days, I've been spending time with my cousins and this is what we've been doing. Helen describes Evil Uno as "Diabolical". Liz describes as "Way better than regular Uno and you will never go back". Janice would describe it as "Awesome".
Other randomness includes sardines "The best game ever", Horseopoly and interesting music. Sardines are always the best, because people can hide under random places, like under the deck.
Pamela spent two hours selling ice cream at the fair, but didn't eat any. We played Horseopoly while Pamela played with a random foam piece. This happened until we all got tired and we all lost.
We went on a shopping spree which Helen describes as "Very costly." Elizabeth liked spraying with everyone with body mist at Bath & Body Works. Pamela enjoyed nothing except for eating pretzels at the end. The adults just wandered around aimlessly and shopped for Christmas presents in August.
To wrap up our fabulous visit,, we played a hilarious game called the name game, where we put celebrity names on slips of paper and have two minutes to guess who they are. The next round, we play charades with the names and the final round, we have to desribe the names in one word. Of course, mine were the most obnoxious names of the group!
So that was our visit and all the randomness in it.
See ya later!
