On this episode of Married At First Sight, the couples are just four weeks away from decision day. Only one of the couples seems to have even a prayer as we go into this episode. I am almost afraid to see how the Luke and Kate thing plays out. Plus, it is the search each others phone episode. In the end,I highly doubt that Luke will participate in that exercise.
Kristine & Keith
The Phone Swap
The phone swap doesn’t go so well for these two. It makes sense because they are the youngest. The probably use their phones more than the other couples for photos and social media. Kristine isn’t pleased to discover that her Married At First Sight groom has multiple appropriate photos on his phone. It seems he kept quite a few photos of his ex. Keith was together with his last girlfriend for four and a half years. He claims they broke up a year ago because “she wanted a break.”
It seems to Kristine, and me, that he may still have feelings for his ex. She asks him to delete all of his photos. Later, Pastor Cal calls in for a phone session. Kristine told him about the photos. It has been an issue for her since. Pastor grills Will on his attachment to the photos. Will deletes the photos. After Keith deletes his photos, things are great again.
Stephanie & AJ
AJ is still trying to teach Stephanie how to put up with him. I think the phone swap was a non-event for these two. AJ just said she hasn’t called any of her friends since they were Married At First Sight. These two have a tactile activity from the experts this week. They cover themselves in paint and make a mural. After they paint, they take a shower together.
As these two make plans to go out, AJ announces he is not drinking. It seems like this is something he feels he needs to do for the night. It also feels like it might be a struggle for him. Stephanie continues to suggest bars. Ah, they are watching the Eagles game and want to go to a sports bar. The game has already started so Stephanie picks on that is very closed. AJ seems irritable already. He’s hungry. AJ doesn’t even care about the game. He just needs to eat. AJ tells us this in confessional and so far has not told this to Stephanie. At least not as far as we have seen. Stephanie wants to finish watching the current play of the game. Afterward, we get a montage about AJ’s anger issues.
Jasmine & Will
The Counselor’s Therapeutic Game
The counselors gave this couple a fishbowl full of questions and activities to work on their intimacy. First, they reenact their first kiss. The argue about how it happens. Jasmine wants to roll the footage. Next, they are asked what caused their last breakup. Jasmine says he partner decided he didn’t want to have kids. Will says, “Distance and communication. I stumbled there.” That sounds like he cheated to me. This is odd because he is the one that is holding out on sex. Is he still with his ex? How could I fulfill one of your romantic fantasies? Will says wear glasses and pull her hair back. Apparently, he is a sexy librarian type of guy.
The Phone Swap
These two seem to do fine with the traditional Married At First Sight phone swap. Will has the Bible as an app. He also has lots of girls that he says are cousins. I believe him.
Kate & Luke
Dr. Pepper Counsels The Couple
Right away, Dr. Pepper is knocking on this couples door. Apparently, Luke has been saying “alarming things” to the producers. He is not sharing his true thoughts with Kate. First of all, he still doesn’t want to kiss her and he feels pressured by Kate to kiss her. What is wrong with this guy? Why haven’t they kicked him off of Married At First Sight?
Doctor Pepper Talks To Luke
Here we go. He is blaming it on Kate. When she drinks, she wants to kiss him. For the love of God. I hate this guy. In addition, he says she has a drinking problem. Then he backtracks and says she just drinks more than he does. Could it be that she got married at first sight to a guy who says kissing her is repulsive and makes him feel dead inside? Dr, Pepper say this is something they need to discuss as a couple. Luke wonders if that will make things worse. Actually, it is you, Luke. You are making things worse.
Dr. Pepper Talks To Kate
Kate says he has told her that he feels pressured to kiss her. She apologized to him. She says they cuddle in bed and are intimate and she really doesn’t understand why he doesn’t want to kiss. When it comes to drinking, she says that it is Luke that serves her the drinks. There is video to back that up.
Next, Dr. Pepper talks to them together. Luke doesn’t want to talk. He changes his story. He struggles to provide examples. Luke apologizes for saying she has a problem. Kate is upset because he gives no feedback from him. He doesn’t share any of this thoughts with her. He doesn’t tell her what is wrong.
The Phone Swap
Later, these two swap phones. I am shocked he did it.The first words we hear from Kate as she is looking through his phone is, “Dirty, Nasty, Skanks?” Why am I not surprised? She just says nothing and hands him the phone back.
Next, these two go out to dinner. Kate points out it is their first dinner date in Philadelphia. He replies, “Do you want to talk about your feelings again?” He is such an asshole. Why is she staying with this fool? She is setting a precedent for him to treat her this way for remainder of their marriage. Let’s hope that just another month.
Luke says that after Dr. Pepper’s visit they talked. The do seem to be in a better place now. She has a nice big glass of white wine. Luke says on he was in college, his best friend was hit and killed by a drunk driver. That is why he is so paranoid about her drinking. I do not believe a word of this story. This guy is playing a role and shifts his story to navigate the relationship and take blame off of himself. He’s pathological. What is wrong with the psychological testing on Married At First Sight?
Kate Gets Advice From Her Girlfriends
Later, Kate has two of her girlfriends over for wine. Kate thinks she has had a breakthrough with Luke. The girls are very concerned that he would make negative comments to producers about her without speaking to her directly. Please let these girls get through to Kate! They also don’t like that he constantly tells her that he is not attracted to her. They have serious concerns. So do I.
