My DVR decided to only record thirty-three minutes of this show. I have no idea what happened. So I am going to have to recap watching On Demand and I won’t be able to pause the show.
Jaclyn and Ryan
Jaclyn seems to be happy with their road trip to NYC. They get along great as long as Ryan isn’t near his drinking buddies. Or a bar. Jaclyn says she and Ryan had a big fight after the cameras left the night before. Ryan wanted to stay out all night with friends and Jaclyn didn’t want to. Jaclyn gave Ryan the ring back. I think she is done. Ryan takes zero responsibility for his actions.
After they return from New York, these two are not in a good place. Dr. Pepper arrives to try to help. The first thing she says is that Jaclyn looks very sad. Dr. Pepper tells Ryan he is not bending himself to accommodate a wife. Ryan doesn’t talk about making any changes for his wife. But he does say he wants to be married to her. Suddenly that is enough for Jaclyn. Nope. He has to change his lifestyle. By the end of the show, Ryan and Jaclyn agree they want to stay together.
Jon and Molly
Jon and Molly had a great time at the water park and seem very comfortable with each other. But apparently, Molly is an entirely different person off camera. Once the camera’s left, Molly started talking to a guy at the bar. Jon was not happy with that and started recording with his camera. This pissed Molly off. Jon says that Molly says that he is disgusting and he makes her skin crawl when he touches her. Jon says he has said this before off camera and he can’t take another week of it. Molly mocks him as he is recording and says he is recording so he can get some sympathy. Even is that is true, can you blame him? She’s been a bitch all season!
Jon and Molly have not spoken since the trip. Jon is over the whole thing. Jon is very hurt by the things that Molly said. He no longer wants to share his thoughts and feelings with her.
Dr. Griffin comes to meet with them. She wants to talk to them individually first. Molly goes first and is totally lying. She basically says she doesn’t know what happened. She has no regrets from the fight. She said they rarely fight and she certainly was not fighting dirty. Molly is just lying her face off. In her confessional she says Jon said a lot of nasty things to her.
Jon says that Molly was one wording him and then she just started chatting up another guy at the bar and ignoring her. Jon plays the video. When Molly comes back she is still in full denial mode. When she sees the video, it is clear she has no recollection of the evening. She says in confessional that she feels like Jon betrayed her and is showing his true colors. She was well aware he was recording and she jumped in front of the camera to mock him for videoing her. Molly is so furious she is shaking. Dr. Griffin calls her out on her lies. They basically decided to split. They will talk again, maybe on decision day. She tells Jon he can’t allow someone to treat him the way she does.
Shawniece and Jephte
These two are still lost in the corn maze. Jephte will not listen to Shawniece at all. Jephte just wants to do everything on his own. Jephte thinks he went out of his way to be romantic? By leaving Shawniece in the cornfield. On the way back home Jephte is an asshole. He said that Shawniece just wants to fuck up his happiness. Everything is Shawniece’s fault. Jephte says he doesn’t trust Shawniece because he’s only known her seven weeks. Jephte says maybe they should not be together.
Dr. Pepper comes to counsel them as soon as they get back to Boston. Shawniece is letting Jephte drive the narrative. When Shawniece finally opens up she cries. Jephte starts to see her point. Jephte apologizes and in his confessional he says all the right things. But then he keeps on doing stupid stuff over and over.
Every time Jephte fucks up he buys Shawniece roses. This time he bought her a puppy. This is not adult conflict resolution. Shawniece says they are a family now. Just like Jax and Brittany.
There is one episode before decision day. Molly and Jon are clearly not going to make it. The other two still have a shot.
