'Teen Mom 2': Jenelle Evans Fails a Drug Test and Spends 2 Days in Jail
Tuesday night’s episode of Teen Mom 2 was chock full of big moments for the entire cast. Jeremy Calvert left town for a work opportunity in New Mexico (to Leah Messer’s dismay). Chelsea Houska graduated from aesthetician school and scooped up a job at a salon without skipping a beat. Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin walked down the aisle (everything about the ceremony was so dang sweet. Fittingly, the location of the waterworks-fest was an aquarium. So perfect. Also? Isaac won the entire episode). Aaaaand Janelle Evans went to jail. Eesh.
Before Jenelle went to court to chat with the judge about her prior heroin charges/plea deal, she told Nathan Griffith she was nervous hubby Courtland Rogers would show up. Courtland, the maybe-heroin planter, wouldn’t dare pop by the courthouse, right? Not when she’s there because she’s dealing with the heroin charges that he's probably linked to, right? That would be crazy, right? WRONG. Sure enough, Courtland was lurking around the courthouse parking lot. They gave him the cold shoulder. Atta gal, Jenelle. Atta boy, Nathan. Courtland eventually disappeared, but like, YIKES.
So what happened with the judge? Jenelle pleaded guilty to a lesser charge, and the judge was like, “Cool beans! Just pass this pesky little drug test and you’re good to go. Well, you’ll get unsupervised probation for a minute, but that’s basically good to go, yeah? Anyway, you’ve known about this court date for a while, so there’s no way you’d do anything that could get you into legal trouble, right? You know, like do drugs that’ll still be in your system and are totally traceable? Wait, what’s that? Your drug test shows that you've been smoking pot? Oh, Jenelle. Really?!?! I guess that means you’ll be spending two days in jail after all. We were thiiiiiis close! DRAT.”
When Jenelle told Nathan her jail visit would start right then and there, Nathan was like, “Engh.” He left the courthouse and broke the jail time news to Barbara Evans. Her response? She was so over Jenelle’s shit. "Because Jenelle can be such a little bitch, right? And she does all these things and jeopardizes everybody," Barbara said. "She's jeopardizing your future, she's jeopardizing [Jace's] safety." Barbara also said she was glad her daughter went to jail because she thinks she's over the law. Nathan was like, "Engh," but still asked Barbara if she wanted to go with him to pick Jenelle up from jail on Monday morning. Barbara was like, “Uh, nope. Gotta work. Sorry not sorry.”
When Monday morning rolled around, Nathan picked up Jenelle from prison (and you bet he brought her flowers). Once they got back to their place, they immediately fought about whether or not Nathan was talking to another lady while she was in the clink. Welcome home?
EESH. Okay, I'm going to switch gears. I have to. I don't know about you, but I could use a clip from Kailyn and Javi's adorabs wedding right about now:
