Is Eric trying to lose weight and save his life and marriage, or is he just conning the country? Find out as he also confronts some of his “haters” face-to-face for the first time.

Jana and Allen say their neighbors, Melanie, Maritha, and Maritha’s son, Christopher, moved into the house directly behind them six months ago and have been the source of constant conflict. They say their neighbors have made false police reports, called DFS, threatened them and that their four dogs bark all hours of the night. Jana says Christopher even set off an explosive in their backyard near their children’s swing set. Although Christopher denies the allegations, Jana and Allen say they have surveillance video. But Maritha is pointing the finger right back at Jana and Allen, accusing them of making her life a “living hell.” She says police have been called to her home 17 times since she moved in. Maritha says she has been falsely accused of punching another neighbor in the face, and her partner, Melanie, charged with sexual misconduct for mooning a neighbor, even though Melanie vehemently denies this allegation. Tensions have escalated to the point that both families have installed surveillance cameras around their homes because they say they fear for their safety. Will these neighbors be able to call a truce?

Thirteen-year-old Nicole Lovell disappeared from her Blacksburg, VA home on January 27, after barricading her dresser against her door and reportedly climbing out her bedroom window. She took her special cartoon Minions blanket, but left behind life-saving medication. After a massive three-day search, her parents’ worst nightmare became a reality: Nicole’s body was discovered by the side of a road in North Carolina.

Eisenhauer, a collegiate athlete, and Keepers, a former NASA intern, have both been accused of plotting Nicole’s murder and luring her to her death. It has been reported that the day she snuck out of her house, 13-year-old Nicole, who reportedly met Eisenhauer on a popular smartphone messaging app, thought she was meeting him for a date. In an exclusive interview, Lovell’s father, David, shares what he says he knew about her secret online world, and reveals his heartbreak over the loss of his beloved daughter and what it was like watching one of the suspects in court.

In 2008, Julia was a single mom, homeless, and living in a car with her 15-year-old daughter, Olivia, her 12-year-old daughter Phoebe, and Olivia’s newborn daughter. Julia claims that when authorities found her homeless, they placed her children in foster care. Julia and Olivia say that within 6 months, Olivia’s daughter was adopted. Julia claims the adoption was illegal, and she wants to know how to legally fight what she calls this “injustice” that happened to her family because they were broken and poor. Olivia claims she did everything she was told to do by caseworkers in foster care, but they still took her child. She says she never agreed to place her baby for adoption. Olivia claims the adoptive mother, Jyllian, lied to her, falsely promising pictures and the chance to be part of her daughter’s life. She and her family want Dr. Phil’s advice on how to keep fighting for her little girl.

Julia and her 22-year-old daughter, Olivia, claim Olivia’s newborn daughter was taken away from her illegally and placed for adoption. They claim Jyllian, the woman who adopted Olivia’s daughter, promised to provide them with pictures of the little girl and the opportunity to be part of her life, but they say she hasn’t done either. They also say they don’t approve of what they claim is Jyllian’s lifestyle. Jyllian adamantly denies making any promises about Evelyn to Olivia, says their claims are outrageous and that everything about the adoption was legal. She says in the past few months, things have gotten out of control, and she even had to get a restraining order against Olivia. Jyllian claims both Julia and Olivia have posted pictures of her and slandered her, and she claims Olivia drives by her house and stalks her. Jyllian says she lives in fear that they might kidnap her daughter and wants the harassment to stop so she can raise her child in peace. Can Dr. Phil bring calm to this situation?
