Four years ago, "Teen Mom OG" viewers watched Tyler's dad begin a prison sentence -- and then saw Butch come full circle and emerge a free man after serving his time behind bars.
During this week's premiere episode -- and in the clip above -- the Baltierra patriarch was released from jail and reconnected with his child after a lengthy separation. The two were understandably happy to be back together and quickly reflected on how much life had changed since they had last seen each other -- and yes, that even meant informing Butch that he could "look and talk at the cameras" while filming the long-running series.
"Hello, world!" Butch exclaimed, while staring straight into the lens. "I'm free...and single!"
The interaction between the father-son duo soon turned more sentimental: As they sat down for a hearty breakfast, Butch expressed his excitement about meeting his granddaughter Nova -- while Tyler revealed that he would be saying "I do" to Catelynn in just a few weeks.
"It was important for me that you were there for my wedding," Tyler stated. "You weren't there for a lot of other s**t -- when I graduated, when Nova was born. So you'll make it."
Butch, for his part, couldn't hide his excitement.
"I'm amazed -- I'm just totally amazed," he gushed.
