Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson and her sister Lauryn 'Pumpkin' Shannon travel down to Florida to visit Mama June on this week's episode of Mama June: Road To Redemption.

And though the daughters are working to repair their fractured relationship with June after her perpetual lying and past drug addiction, more damage is seemingly done when Alana entertains the idea of staying longer with her mom than Pumpkin would like.

Things come to a head when June leads with bribery as she and boyfriend Geno Doak take Alana apartment hunting in the hopes to entice her to kiss her life in Georgia goodbye.

Tough choices: Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson, 15, continues to repair her relationship with Mama June as she visits her in Florida alongside sister Pumpkin, but things come to a head when Alana wants to stay longer

The episode picks up from last week's episode's tense family dinner. A protective Pumpkin — who has become Alana's caretaker — pushes back on June's attempts to build a life for Alana in Florida.  

'I'm the one who knows what's best for Alana now. Like, I have worked the last two years getting Alana to talk to me. Now, you wanna come back in and basically, like, get her hopes up,' Pumpkin says. 

She slams June for leaving them years ago telling her that she was the one left to pick up the pieces. But Alana seems to be forgiving of her mother as she says in a confessional she wishes Pumpkin would 'lighten up.'

Mama bear: Though June continues to apologize for 'not being there,' and thanks Pumpkin for stepping in as guardian, she asserts that she is and will always be her 'mama' as she continues to push an extension on their time together

In a confessional, Pumpkin fears June will pit Honey Boo Boo against she and her husband Josh after Alana seems to be buying June's rehabilitated character and continues to be charmed by life in the sunshine state.   

Though June continues to apologize for 'not being there,' and thanks Pumpkin for stepping in as guardian, she asserts that she is and will always be her 'mama.' 

She continues to urge that she's turning a new page after rehab. 'When I was in rehab, I mean, I realized that, you know, I wanted y'all back. So now I'm taking steps to do that, and I want y'all around to see those steps,' she says. 

Things seem to be going well despite underlying tension as Alana and Geno engaged in a friendly game of foosball and work on the grill. And June continues to enjoy spending time with her granddaughter Ella who had been barred from seeing her at first.

Mama June expresses gratitude for their continued family growth. 'I'm just so glad to have y'all back in our life. You know, like, I feel like we've came a long way, and, like, we can continue to stay on the path,' she says. 

And meanwhile Geno is doing his own damage control as he makes an attempt to get some quality one on one time with Alana by inviting her to dinner. 

June tees up a special treat for her kids to prove how serious she is about sobriety as she plans to take them to the Banyan treatment center — the place she says 'saved her life.' 

But back in Georgia, Josh is stewing with stress. Not only has he been sheltering Alana's dad Sugar Bear in the backyard but he's quit his job. 

One on one: 'I want things to get back like they were before, you know?,' Doak says, adding that her staying would make them 'really happy'

Pumpkin however also has a bombshell to drop, revealing via phone call that Alana likes being in Florida which sets Josh off. 

As Alana and Geno's dinner commences, he continues to subtly make bids to get Alana to live with them in Florida. 'I want things to get back like they were before, you know?,' he says, adding that her staying would make them 'really happy.'
