I have been dying to watch this show and yet somehow just kinda goofed around today dealing with real life stuff instead. I was shocked to see it on my DVR. Because I can’t remember a damn thing anymore. It’s like everything is a big surprise. At least this was a pleasant one. I wish to GOD they would stop saying “married to a complete stranger” every ten seconds. We get it. We actually watch the show!
Tom and Lilly
I hate this episode already. Tom came in and was asked how things were going and he says things are different and he wasn’t expecting to be “locked down.” And that was it. Then they bring in Lilly. But around all of this we waste valuable time with flashback scenes. Lilly says it has not been easy. Lilly talks about how different they are.
Tom and Lilly are still married. They just got a new place together. Instead of asking questions about specifics from the last six months, we get a rehash of the bus incident and a reminder that these two have a lot of sex. Tom says that he was impressed that Lilly gave up lots of her shoes and clothes when she moved. He also thinks she is too hard on herself. Tom says he is trying to teach her that she doesn’t need to wear makeup every time they go to dinner. She has natural beauty and doesn’t need all of that. These two are happy with no regrets.
After a break we get a scene with Tom and Lilly taking a salsa dance. Tom and Lilly are in love. Not sure when that was filmed. Tom says Lilly is the one.
Nick and Sonia
These two are still on an emotional rollercoaster. But they are still together. The photo of them above as actually tweeted by Derek just last week and they certainly appear happy. The big drama about Nick not wearing his ring was nothing. As it turns out he takes it off to play golf and left it in his golf bag.
At one point Nick reaches over and grabs Sonia’s hand and smiles like a kid in a candy store. It was very sweet. Sonia has gotten used to the dogs and has actually picked up poop. Just like Tom and Lilly, these two have moved into a new place. I liked Nick’s old place. Can I live there now?
Nick says he is happy that they stayed together and he can see the big picture now. He likes spending time with her. Sonia says she sees a lot of good in Nick. She likes just doing nothing with him. These two smiled through the entire interview. They are adorable. They are still working on meeting each others emotional needs in the way their partner wants to receive them. There was a lot of laughter and playfulness between these two. Is this a good time for me to say, “I told you so.”
We see a scene of their new place and it’s beautiful as well. Sonia’s Dad and Nick’s mom and her boyfriend come over for dinner. Nick grills out and both parents are thrilled with the match. Sonia says she thinks that Nick is going to be a fantastic father and she is excited for their future. They are a really cute couple. The dog is still between them on the bed.
At the end, Tom surprised Lilly with a beautiful engagement ring and he renewed his commitment to her. He wanted her to have a proposal. Even though they are doing everything backwards. Lilly was thrilled.
So this season we got two happily ever afters.
Derek still seemed high. Heather seemed less bitchy.
