Mama June: Road to Redemption returned for season 6 on Friday night. While Mama June's drama was evident, the premiere episode also featured a lot of warm and memorable family moments for Pumpkin. Pregnant with her second child at 21, Pumpkin had to take over the responsibility of looking after her own family and her two sisters.
With Mama June still with Geno, it was evident that Pumpkin was under a lot of stress. She would get calls from Mama June sharing that the situation with Geno was getting out of control and she needed her family's help.
Fans who watched Pumpkin put up with all the trouble praised her, sharing that she deserves the good things happening to her.
Rundown of what happened on Mama June: Road to Redemption Season 6 premiere
The season premiere started with Pumpkin and Josh moving into their new home and getting ready for the birth of their baby boy. Alana and Ella have their own room while Jessica crashes on the couch.
While things were going smoothly, Pumpkin got a call from Mama June requesting that she be at the courthouse during Geno's trial for drug possession.
Pumpkin was skeptical to go, claiming Geno was bad news and she wouldn't want to be near him, and neither should June. However, June promised that she would break up with him in the courthouse. She revealed that it would be safer for her to end it there.
On the day of the hearing, Pumpkin and Doe Doe showed up at the courthouse. Sadly, Geno's sentencing was postponed, and June didn't break up with him. Pumpkin was furious, but June shared that it wasn't an easy thing to do.
Meanwhile, back home, Pumpkin breaks the news to Alana, who is equally frustrated with her mother's behavior. The former comforts her by sharing that Alana has her and Josh, who love her and care for her.
Soon after, Pumpkin revealed that she had not heard from Mama June since the court hearing. She was absent even after Pumpkin gave birth to her first grandson and never called even after baby Bentley arrived. However, Josh comforted Pumpkin by sharing that she did have everyone else who loved her next to her.
After going off the grid and not contacting the show for three weeks, Mama June finally reached out to the crew and set up a meeting at a hotel. She shared that she somehow mustered up the courage to leave Geno after all his verbal abuse. June also revealed that she was worried about her sobriety and mental health.
Fans who watched the entire episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption shared that Pumpkin didn't have to put up with the stress because of June and that they were proud of her for accomplishing so much with all of June's problems.
