"My Ex-Wife Believes She’s Going Blind, Filed for Divorce from Me behind My Back and Can’t See She’s Neglecting Our Children"
ALL-NEW! Jonathan says his ex-wife, Jessica, has convinced herself that she’s going blind. He claims she’s so obsessed with proving that her eyes have “shifted” that she’s taken over 900 pictures of her eyes, walks around in circles to “relieve” the pain, and now spends her day sitting in complete darkness. He claims Jessica is neglecting their children, refuses to shower, eat, or get dressed. Jonathan says their two young children want their mother back, and he wants to convince her she’s not losing her sight. Jessica is adamant she’s going blind and admits taking care of her kids is no longer her priority. Jonathan’s mother, Kathleen, claims her ex-daughter-in-law is a “spoiled rotten brat” and her “illness” is all in her head. Can Dr. Phil help bring this family back together?

“A Small Town Mystery: A Horse’s Throat Sliced, Tires Slashed and Locks Tampered With. Are They Victims of Suzie or is Suzie the Victim?”
ALL-NEW! Alisa formed a secret Facebook group called “Victims of Suzie.” She says there are 32 members, including her husband, Michael, and Johynne and Johynne’s granddaughter, Brittany, who claim Suzie has conned them out of money, furniture, horses, and in business; and the group is a safe place for them to talk about it. Johynne and Brittany claim their horse's throat was sliced, another horse had a bullet in its head, tires were slashed, locks tampered with, and their phones were hacked, and that they suspect Suzie is behind it all -- but they say they have no proof. But Suzie says she is the real victim and when she found out about this secret group, she was shocked. She says she would never hurt a soul and can’t understand why this gang of bullies, some former friends of hers, say they are victims when she is the one under attack. Who does Dr. Phil think is the real victim: Suzie or the group?
