This is the episode where MAFS actually gets going. So this MAFS recap should be a lot more interesting than the previous ones. Things are about to get real.
Well the bad news is that the episode didn’t record. So I am going to have to watch on demand which means I will have to type faster and comment less. Because, my On Demand feature only lets you pause for like one minute before it cuts off and you have to start all over. This suck because it seems like a good episode. Oh crap it i an hour and a half. I don’t really have an hour and a half.
Iris & Keith
I missed who made this breakfast. Oops I tape two things at 7:30 so I am going to have to postpone this. Okay, let’s try this MAFS recap again. I am NOT looking forward to all the commercials. This week is the meet the family and friends episode. Did I miss what Keith’s difficult family is all about? Okay, I Googled and Keith’s grandmother has cancer. Iris is very emotional about it.
Keith and Iris both invited family and friends over for a housewarming. Iris is cooking up a storm. Iris’s mother is lovely and is apparently checking in with Keith’s family during their difficult time. The party went really great! Until… one of Keith’s friends pulled out some lemonade from the fridge. This REALLY pissed Iris off. Then she said everyone is limited to two drinks. Iris has some control issues. When she brings it up later Keith is shocked that she is so peeved about it. He basically tells her she needs to deal with it.
Girls and Guys Meetup
Since this year the couples all moved into the same apartment building, the guys can work out in the same gym and the girls can meet in a common area. No one understand why Amber made a big deal about Matt setting up in the guest bathroom. The other wives seem to have encouraged their guys to do it. Deonna and Iris talk about not having had sex yet. Iris talks about finding the empty condom box. These are not interesting conversations.
Greg & Deonna
Deonna brought Greg a giant cookie for his birthday. It’s great that she remembered, but he is on the keto diet. Deonna seems to be warming to Greg. Greg really wants to move on to sexually active. And she seems willing! YAY! I am bored out of my mind with this conversation. I’m not sure I can do an hour and a half of this without being able to fast forward.
These two invite their friends over for Greg’s birthday party. Deonna’s friends think she seems a lot more open to a relationship. I am shocked at how well things are going for these two. Greg may even have a shot at birthday sex!
Jamie & Beth
The two have both of their parents come over to the apartment. Jamie is a bit concerned about Beth’s dad. Beth doesn’t really have a job. She is going to start working for her dad. Jamie’s parents seem to have concerns about Beth. They both lie about wanting kids. They really aren’t that interested having children. Beth’s parents seem like they are supportive of the marriage.
After their little shindig, they have a conversation. When Beth asks him why his parents got divorced. He seems that pissed that she is asking about that on camera. Jamie is concerned that Jaime sort of lied about working for her dad. And he thinks it is nepotism. Jaime seems to be taking all sorts of jabs at Beth in retaliation for the divorce question. This is really uncomfortable. Then Jaime storms out of the apartment. Apparently there was cheating in his parents marriage that he doesn’t want to discuss on camera.
Jaime come back with flowers. He also wants to hash out their situation and put it behind them. Jaime wants to feel like Beth is taking the relationship seriously. She doesn’t seem to get what he is saying so she sort of loses it. Beth is have a very bizarre reaction to him wanting to talk about their marriage. She hasn’t heard a word he has said. They argue about how much sex they are having. Beth says they have sex everyday. Jaime says that have done it four or five times total. Beth basically tells him he is bad in bed. He is read to move out of the apartment.
Matt & Amber
Amber is taking Matt to Sunday dinner at his families. These two are a lot more subdued back in the real world. On the way to dinner Matt drops the bomb that he wants to wait 5-8 years to have kids. This is a problem. He says that having a kid bonds people for life and he is not sure he is ready for that. The car is quickly filling up with red flags. Amber arrives to her parents in a bad mood. Amber’s sister looks exactly like her.
I had such high hopes for this couple. But it looks like it is not going to work. Matt does seem to fit in well with Amber’s family though. For now.
Matt went out around 1 pm and never came home. He is not answering he calls. She has a nervous breakdown at 2 am. She calls her dad sobbing. And that is where the On Demand show ends.
That was a tiresome episode to do a MAFS recap. I literally picked up my remote at every commercial reflexively trying to fast forward. What do you think about Jaime and Beth? Were they just being fake around their families? The only couple without conflict this week was shockingly, Greg and Deonna!
