Season 14 - Episode 110

Daniel says he and his ex, Lynsey, are caught in a contentious custody battle, filled with lies and accusations, and their 4-year-old daughter is caught in the middle. Daniel claims that he refused to marry Lynsey once learning she was pregnant, that she told him the child was not his and she then gave birth without telling him. Daniel says he filed for paternity and when their child turned 3, he received unsupervised visitation with her. That’s when he says Lynsey started accusing him of molesting their little girl – and that Lynsey recorded videos where she claims that her daughter admits to being molested by Daniel, videos that Daniel says only prove that Lynsey coached their daughter to lie. The court ultimately ruled that Daniel should keep custody and Lynsey should be given one-and-a-half years of supervised visitation. But now, Lynsey is allowed supervised overnight visits with Sophie, and Daniel says he’s concerned that she will lie to Sophie about him and that Lynsey’s “instabilities” will affect Sophie. Lynsey claims that Daniel begged her to abort their daughter when she told him that she was pregnant and that the first three years of their daughter’s life, Daniel rarely saw their child. Lynsey also claims that after an overnight visit with Daniel in December 2014, her daughter came home saying Daniel hurt her – and that she hired a therapist who convinced her that their daughter was sexually abused. Lynsey says now she gets two phone calls per week with her daughter for a few minutes at a time – and claims Daniel is unwilling to support a relationship between her and their daughter. Can Dr. Phil help these parents calm the chaos and put their daughter’s needs ahead of their own?

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
