Teen Mom 3 Recap: Season 1 Episode 8 "Some Days Matter More"
Briana Dejesus: It's Briana's first day of college and the whole family is there to celebrate. Literally. Since Briana can't drive (seriously, they don't teach driver's ed in Florida high schools?), Briana's mom has to take her to school and drags Brittany along with her and stay at the school until their class gets out. Brittany grows (rightfully) more and more agitated by Briana getting babied and wants to move out of their house. Briana may still be a teenager, but a mother/college student drives themselves and their kid(s), not grandma driving both of you places.
Mackenzie Douthit: For Father's Day, Mackenzie decides to make something special for Josh: pics in a frame of Gannon holding the words "I Love My Dad". Aww so cute!! However, Josh is not impressed by the gift and doesn't even spend the day with Gannon. Mackenzie later talks to her own dad about her issues with Josh.
Katie Yeager: Things continue to get worse for Katie and Joey when Joey takes Katie's car to do something when he knows Katie needs it to take Molli to her swim lesson. Katie ends up having to walk and misses the lesson due to being late. Then, later, when she suggests that Joey get some rest before his graveyard shift at the mines, he snaps at her because he wants to go fishing. I see things only going farther downhill for this couple...
Alex Sekella: It's time for Alex's senior prom, but Alex doesn't want to go because she doesn't have anyone to go with. Her mom encourages her to go anyway and takes her out dress shopping and decides on a gorgeous red dress (same as my prom dress!). Alex's manager at the dance studio sets her up with a date: someone she used to dance with. Though she and her date were kind of blah together, she had fun dancing with her friends. (Hey, I went to prom with a friend and had a blast). Alex enjoyed being back in the social scene and begins to look forward to dating again in the near future.
