First of all, I need you to all brush your hair and put on some makeup and try to look nice because we have company. The last MAFS recap had thousands and thousands of new viewers. I am not sure how that happened. But we had a LOT of company show up. Hopefully, they will return for this one.
The Mini Moon Continues…
I can already tell this is going to be a good episode because they didn’t even waste the usual three minutes reminding us of all the things we have already seen.
The couples are back at the house after some time on their own and it’s time to make dinner. Will is asleep. Jasmine lets us know that Will sleeps all the time. The men are on dinner duty while the girls play Scrabble. Jasmine wakes Will up and he’s not really happy with the forced participation.
The girls enjoy some wine after dinner and talk among themselves about their relationships. Jasmine says that she and Will “miss each other sometimes with their points of view.” She says when he is telling his point of view she can’t get her side in. Really? I haven’t noticed this. I see him giving you very clear signals about what he wants and you arguing why what you want is better. Either way, this couple agrees on none of the fundamentals and needs to divorce.
Stephanie says that AJ can be like that too. He doesn’t hide the way he feels and sometimes he will just blow up. Yes, Stephanie, he has anger issues. It doesn’t matter if they were caused by a traumatic brain energy or maybe his mama didn’t hug him enough. The bottom line is the same for you. You need to run far away from that.
Kate says that everything is great with Luke except the attraction thing. Really? Did MAFS just opt not to show us these great parts? Because you seem miserable. Kate does say she is just not sure about the “attraction thing.” She doesn’t want to discuss the sex issue because “it makes her a little bit ashamed.” Oh, Sweetie. Kate says she doesn’t know how long she can be with someone who wants to be attracted to her but isn’t. My answer? Not another day, another hour, another minute. Gather your belongings and leave now.
Kristine didn’t contribute much to this conversation. At least in the portions we saw. Probably as to not rub salt in their wounds.
Keith says he and Kristine talk openly about Decision Day. He says that they are talking about things they need and if the other is able to meet those needs. This seems quite mature. I wish he would tell the guys he wants to start having babies right away and Kristine wants to wait until things are more stable both in the marriage and financially.
Will says he has told Jasmine he is 50/50 about the whole thing. That should be enough for a sane person to walk away. But will she?
Luke says he and Kate have not brought the situation up at all. The other guys think that is weird.
Kate & Jasmine Talk Alone
It seems as though these two have discovered they both are married to men who just aren’t that into them. Jasmine tells Kate that they have not been intimate. She says Will is not affectionate. It is not for lack of trying, at least on Jasmine’s part. Kate says that Luke is very affectionate but then he doesn’t want to take it farther. That is not exactly true. Then she tells her the truth. She says she can tell that Luke just feels obligated to have sex with her because they are married. Jasmine says she can related. It sounds like Jasmine is planning to part ways with Will on decision day. Good idea.
The Next Day
Keith and Kristine
Keith has picked up some cooking skills from the other guys. He can’t wait to use them at home to impress Kristine. Awwww.
Keith takes Kristine to one of those champagne glass Jacuzzis in a seedy motel. They talk about decision day. Keith is a definite yes. Not for nothing, Keith has very long feet. I’m just saying.
AJ and Stephanie
These two went to a winery. The sommelier talked about the importance of spending time with those you love. I think both of them will decide to stay married.
Kate and Luke
Luke and Kate talk about not talking about decision day. Luke says he hasn’t really thought about it. He says it is just another day. Just an arbitrary date. He just wants to make sure they are both sure. Kate says that she reached out to Dr. Pepper for advice on their sexual relationship. She also says she talked to Jasmine about it. When she brings up they were going to keep that private he says he knew she wouldn’t because she didn’t keep it private about the kiss. She said decision day is coming and she needed some advice.
Luke is quietly seething. Kate starts apologizing and is near tears. He just want to leave. When they get in the car and pull away she finally just starts sobbing.
Jasmine and Will
Will says in his talking head falling in love with Jasmine would be a dream come true but he can’t predict the future.
While hiking near the waterfall, these two talk about decision day. Will gives signals that he is probably going to say no.
In The Car With Luke and Kate
Kate says that she can tell that Luke is very angry. He wants to know exactly what she told Dr. Pepper. She says that she told her they had been having sex since the honeymoon. She told her he had been very weird about it. He starts waving his hand around and asks her if she left anything out. If she explained how they got to that point?
When she starts going through how it all happened, he says he would prefer not to have the conversation on camera but if she wants to they can. She says she just wants him to be honest.
He gets angry and wants to turn the tables on Kate and goes back to accusing her of having a drinking problem. Classic deflection. Kate tries to shift the conversation back on track. Kate says when she has nothing to drink the same thing happens. She says he refused to have sex all weekend and multiple times at home. Again, he shifts back to drinking. She eventually just placates him and tells him he is right. He wants to keep chastising her. She puts in headphones and lays down in the car. He fumes and sulks.
That was a long two-hour car ride.
Next Week: It’s the final episode before decision day. Everyone starts having doubts.
