Ryan and Tatum Pledge to Continue Therapy on the Finale of 'The O'Neals' (VIDEO)

Ryan and Tatum O'Neal have a lot of issues to work through, more than they could get to in one season of a reality TV show. On the finale of 'Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals' (Sundays, 10PM on OWN), the recently reconciled father and daughter pledged to each other that they would continue in therapy together, even after the cameras turned off.
Ryan seemed reluctant to have the therapy on camera. "Is it healthy to air your dirty laundry?" he said. "And should family members do that?" Tatum disagreed that there were "a lot of dirty laundry aspects to it." Still, she brought some perspective to the therapeutic process. "We're not able to fix the past," she said. "The past is the past. And I know, dad, how you really feel. I know you have great regret."
In the end, they agreed to keep seeing the therapists, if it would help them stay together." It would be terrible not to have her in my life," said Ryan. "I know, because it has been." He added that Tatum might not always have to come, but he might need her to come sometimes. "Maybe I'll need you," he said, before thinking for a second and saying, "I do need you, Tatum."
