Teen Mom 3 Recap: Season 1 Episode 7 "Into the Distance"
Briana DeJesus: It's time to go to court over the protection order Briana filed against Devoin. She and her mom are very confident that they can win this case, but the outcome is a lot different. When Briana brings in printouts of what Devoin said on twitter, Devoin lies to the judge and says that they aren't from his account. The judge doesn't know what to believe and the courts don't bother to do investigations and track down who is running the account. Instead, they dismiss the case and Briana and her mother are (understandably) upset. This is disgusting because cyber bullying is just as dangerous as regular bullying and it's something many young people have ended their lives over. Also, perjury is a felony, and instead of dismissing the case, the courts should have done further investigations like they have for other cyber bullies and proved that Devoin is, in fact, guilty.
Mackenzie Douthit: Josh has another rodeo coming up and doesn't really care if Mackenzie comes to watch. She is trying her best to be supportive, so she decides to go. However, she regrets this decision when Josh spends zero time with her. When Josh stops answering her texts or calls, Mackenzie becomes depressed and her mom gives her some good advice for once. If Josh doesn't care about her anymore she needs to decide whether or not she should stay engaged to him.
Katie Yeager: Katie has just finished up her freshman year of community college and is looking toward transferring to a university when she completes her associate's degree. Only problem? There are no university near when she and Joey live and the closest one is all the way in Salt Lake City. However, it is possible for Joey to transfer at work to Utah, but doesn't want to go. I understand that Joey is comfortable where they live now, but Katie getting a stable job with a college degree is what is best for Molli and Joey is going to have to make some sacrifices.
Alex Sekella: Alex is relieved that Matt is out of her mom's house, so she can focus more on school, work, and Arabella. Matt sets up a day with the homeless shelter to move in but when the day comes, he arrives at the meeting five hours late, claiming he was in the hospital (yeah, with no medical forms, no one's going to believe that!!). Not only is he late, he throws a temper tantrum and refuses the help, making it clear that he probably relapsed. Later, when Alex is trying to catch up on schoolwork, she receives a call from Matt's friend informing her that Matt is in the ER from an overdose. I really hope Alex doesn't start to enable Matt again.
