I was petrified that I was going to be spoiled on the ending of this season because the show was over two hours long and I could not record it until one a.m. I managed to dodge social media and ended up falling asleep on the couch before midnight. I woke up in the wee hours of the morning, as one does, and of course the end of the show was on and I found out the end before I watched the show.
As it turns out, I was fine with that when I realized how long show was. There was literally an hour and a half of “will they or won’t they” scenes, sprinkled with scrapbooking or vision board making and I think I saw some Heather and Derek in there as I wore my fast forward button out.
When we finally got the decisions, we were led to believe that it was Tom and Sonia who were having cold feet. Nick and Lilly seemed to be set to stay married.
They started with Nick and Sonia. They both gave a long rambling speech that wasn’t exactly all love and unicorns. Nick went first and said yes. Sonia seems like she was planning to say she wanted a divorce, and changed her mind at the last-minute. Nick seemed relieved. On one of the after shows, it seems like Sonia was irritated because Nick didn’t reach out to hang out with her much at all during the last week. Gee, Sonia. could that be because you moved out of the house and refused to come back? If you tell a guy like Nick that you need space, he’s going to give you space. He’s not going to pester you to come home all day every day.
At any rate, Nick and Sonia decided to stay married. At least for a while. The reunion airs next week and the big tease is that Nick is not wearing his ring. Sonia is crying and it doesn’t seem like wedded bliss.
The last couple to decide was Lilly and Tom. Lilly’s speech sounded exactly like a break up. You know how on The Bachelor they say all these nice things to both ladies but the speech to the one getting dumped has a BUT in it. I was waiting for the “But” and it came. Then somehow she says she wants to stay married. Then Tom did his dramatic acting giving a long speech about how hard this was for him because Lilly was a good person. I only saw the speeches today and was half a sleep when I was spoiled on the ending and I really started to think I dreamt that both couples said yes. The speeches were excruciating and very solemn. All four of them were practically morose.
So we got two out of three this season. Not bad at all. Now we just have to wait for the reunion to see if any of them are still together. What do you think? Were you surprised they stayed together?
EDITED! SPOILER ALERT! Derek just posted this photo on Twitter!
Looks like Nick and Sonia are just fine! YAY!
