Spoilers from "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" lie ahead.

In a move that felt pretty evocative of the recently premiered "Gilmore Girls" revival, "Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham and her mother went to therapy together — and seemingly made way more progress than Lorelai and Emily.

Abraham shared promo videos of the mom/daughter joint therapy session for the next episode of "Teen Mom OG" on her Instagram page Monday night (November 28), showing that she and mom Debra Danielson are attempting to work out their issues with some professional guidance (again).

Dr. Jenn Berman, host of VH1's "Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn" series, sits down with Abraham and Danielson in the upcoming episode.

In the first promo clip, Abraham explains to Dr. Jenn that she's "in charge of allowing people in and out of my life" — with her famously estranged mom being one of those people.

The viewing public was first introduced to Abraham's family drama in her episode of "16 and Pregnant," in which Danielson was shown slapping Abraham inside a car. The following year, Danielson was arrested on domestic abuse charges for allegedly hitting her again during another childcare-motivated argument; she later appeared in court for that 2010 incident.

Their estrangement has sporadically continued since then, with Abraham repeatedly criticizing Danielson's "selfishness" and policing the time she spends with her 7-year-old daughter, Sophia. 

In the second clip Abraham shared, it appears that she and Danielson might just be making headway towards a healthier relationship.

"This is complex, and what this feels like to me with your mom is a do-over," Dr. Jenn tells a teary-eyed Abraham. "I think you keep inviting your mom in to do these business things with you because you want to pull her in because you weren't able to pull her in as a kid, and you wanted her understanding and you wanted her love."

For her part, Danielson responds that "she isn't perfect."

"None of us are," she weepily continues."But the differentiator is love, and you get through it because at the end of the day, you know you love each other. And that is what's important."

Danielson and Abraham have tried joint therapy before, but those previous attempts went sour. Something about this session, though, feels more like both women are willing to meet each other halfway, which is a vital step forward if they're ever going to forgive past wrongs.

Meanwhile, as far as Lorelai and Emily are concerned, the seeds of their reconciliation post-Richard's death may have started in therapy, but they sure didn't end there.

Much like Abraham and Danielson, Emily and Lorelai have a long history of tension, resentment, and deep-seated hurt (plus, y'know, both daughters wound up having their own daughters as teenagers). And certainly, the Gilmores' own history of estrangement wasn't abetted by Lorelai's gaffe following Richard's funeral. 

These two definitely needed therapy, and despite Emily giving up after a few joint sessions, their own personal Dr. Jenn may have helped lay the groundwork for greater empathy between them. By the show's end, we saw Lorelai reconcile with Emily in a super touching way. Hopefully on the next episode of "Teen Mom," we'll see Abraham and Danielson do the same.
