Throughout her catastrophic downward spiral, Mama June Shannon did extra than simply almost finish her life.
The a number of betrayals of belief nearly destroyed her entire family.
Now sober, she’s about to be reunited along with her daughters on Mama June: Highway to Redemption.
However is she prepared to listen to what her daughters must say to her?
WEtv launched a sneak peek of this grueling Mama June: Highway to Redemption reunion.
“You do not know what number of nights I cry myself to sleep,” Alana confesses.
She is overtly tearful as she speaks to her mom on this painful heart-to-heart.
This is not run-of-the-mill teen angst, both, though Alana is 15.
She explains to her mother that she weeps “simply hoping and praying that you do not overdose.”
There have been many occasions in 2019 and even very early 2020 once we all shared that concern.
Nobody, in fact, felt that extra acutely than her teenage daughter.
This very visibly hits June exhausting.
Throughout her prolonged drug binge, she clearly didn’t recognize how her actions damage her household.
That’s a part of what makes this second so necessary — driving residence that reality.
That is the place Lauryn speaks up after having cared for Alana for a few years as a result of June was unfit to take action.
“I can not give Alana her mother,” Lauryn says matter-of-factly.
A few of us is likely to be distracted by Lauryn’s off-brand Velma look.
(It is a genuinely good look — no shade)
However her phrases are beginning to hit residence with June. Not less than, we hope so.
Lauryn continues to precise the methods during which June’s habits impacted her.
“It is like … I am drowning,” she expresses.
She was overwhelmed by the burden of her mom’s actions and the brand new obligations positioned upon her.
Lauryn will not be the one one who’s visibly overwhelmed.
Alana, whose tender teen age and hormones make this a lot more durable, begins to overtly sob.
This has been and stays a troublesome and traumatic ordeal for her.
However not all the teaser is about this reunion itself.
Different components proceed to point out Lauryn and Alana’s day by day life.
This features a second when Lauryn and Josh focus on Alana.
Josh Efird suggests taking Alana to see Sugar Bear.
Whether or not or not that is being performed up for the digital camera is as much as your interpretation.
However our interpretation is that, like all the things about Alana’s dad, this would not have taken place with out the cameras.
Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson was and is a horrible dad or mum and a rotten human being.
There aren’t actually any good causes for Alana to go to him.
As such, Lauryn’s response on this second is all of us.
We do not see something farther from this scene.
As a substitute we see June at her (new) residence that she shared along with her boyfriend.
“This could possibly be a catastrophe,” she warns Geno Doak.
The context for that’s anybody’s guess, actually.
Up subsequent, we see June reappear in an surprising place.
Particularly, seated behind Lauryn.
Lauryn turns round and asks her mom “what the f–k.”
Is she merely startled by June’s sudden look.
Or is there extra to what is going on on on this trade than is proven on this all-too-short teaser?
Finally, there may be little or no context on this teaser.
However that’s the job of this type of quick trailer — just a few strains of dialogue to provide you one thing to sit up for.
Mama June: Highway to Redemption continues to air on Friday nights on WEtv.
