As fans saw on the season premiere of TMOG, Butch was open with Tyler about how he failed at staying sober. In the scene, Butch said, “I’m going to go to church tomorrow,” before Tyler replied, “You’re going to go to church? Well, I can’t argue with that. Go to church.” Butch explained to him, “I think I’ll just go there and get my spirituality right.” Afterwards, their conversation turned emotional. “You think you’ve been doing pretty good staying clean and stuff?,” Tyler asked his dad before he replied, “no” with his head down.
