It is a bit early for Second Honeymoons isn’t it? I think they usually do them the last week and we have two weeks before decision time.
Ryan and Jaclyn
These two are a mess. Ryan doesn’t want to be married. He wants a wife that will be there whenever he decides to come home.
When Dr. Pepper comes to help these two, it’s amazing that Ryan knows the right things to say. He just doesn’t actually do any of those things. Oh these guys get to decide where they want to go on a road trip! Jaclyn suggests NYC and Ryan agrees. So that is a good start at least. They are the only couple who seem to have conversation in the car that were productive.
In NYC they have a romantic ride in a horse and carriage. Ryan is fine when he is with Jaclyn, away from his boyz. There is a lot of kissy face happening.
Dinner For Six
The couples all go to dinner. Molly and Jon are going to Florida. That’s a long freaking drive from Boston. Jon grew up in Florida and has family there. Jaclyn says that they are planning a trip to Orlando for paint ball “if they make it through.” Jon leans over and tells Shawniece that he asked Molly if they could get tickets for the ski and snowboard expo and she said no. Shawniece asked when it was and he said after decision day. He was very sad about that.
Jepthe asks what has been the hardest for them. Jaclyn says the 0 to 10 variations in the day, every day. Jaclyn looks like she is there as a hostage who is hoping for the FBI to rush the place and save her. Jon doesn’t want to say what the hardest part of the relationship is. Molly says this is part of the issues they have and the others push him. In a voice over Jon says that it’s not even really the lack of sex, it’s about how cold Molly is to him. He says she is cold on camera but even colder off camera. That’s interesting but I’m not surprised. He says that the hardest part for him is getting rejected constantly. Molly looks pissed and everyone else’s jaws drop. Jon says, “This blows for me, but I’m stuck in it and I’ve got to keep trying.” Molly jumps in with,” You’re not stuck in it just so you know.”John gets up and walks out. Oh and apparently they are going to fly to Florida. That’s not the road trip that was offered. Molly says they are a 99% match they have everything in common except physical intimacy. What is it about dinners on reality shows?
Shawniece and Jephte
Shawniece wants to go someplace fun and romantic. Jephte is not a romantic kind of guy. They decide to drive up to some place in New England and check out the fall leaves. This is my favorite trip idea of the three. Shawniece is driving to Vermont and Jephte is just being a PITA.
They are staying at Stowe Mountain Lodge and got a really nice suite. It’s very romantic. They watch their wedding video in bed. Shawniece says, “I married a stranger and it was the best decision she has ever made.” And then she starts bawling. She says there are no words to describe how she is feeling and they cuddle in bed.
Later these two are going through the corn maze. They guy tells them to work together and don’t lose each other. So Jephte just takes off without her. Shawniece gets frustrated and gives up.
Molly and Jon
These two got a great suite in Orlando. Are they down there to go to Disney? Because why go all the way to Florida and not be on the beach? They end up at Universal Park riding some crazy rollercoasters. They both seem to be having a great time. Molly said that Universal was one of the last trips they took together. He died of pancreatic cancer. That brought the family very close together. Jon said his family is the exact opposite, his parents divorce was catastrophic to his family. It went on for four years and his dad suing is mother is the reason he joined the army three years into college. He’s seen the worst marriage. They seem very bonded by this conversation and exchange a few pecks.
Next week: It’s a week before decision day. Dr. Pepper goes to see Ryan and Jaclyn again. She says Jaclyn seems very sad. She starts crying. Molly and Jon get in a huge fight. She calls him fucking disgusting. Apparently, she was talking to a guy at the bar and he didn’t like that. Later they talk to a therapist about it and Molly says she doesn’t think there was anything she could or would do differently. WOW. She asks Jon to pull of the videotape of the incident. Molly gets really freaked out and the therapist says, “I don’t like your lies.”
