Finally have a chance to get a new MAFS recap up. The newlyweds are half way to decision day and things are finally going to get real.
Beth & Jaime
These two seem mismatched. For their anniversary, they go back to the venue for their wedding. Jaime gives some new vows to Elizabeth. He vows to be a better husband when things get heated and try harder to see both sides. We see from the teaser that this probably doesn’t happen. He set up a very romantic lunch for their anniversary. She gave him a little leaflet of what I presume to be sexual positions. They didn’t show the book. He gave her silver a Tiffany heart necklace.
Jaime asks what three things he could be doing better. She has nothing. This foils his plan to tell her a few things. So he says he doesn’t have any complaints either.
Later Jaime has a picnic set up with the top layer of their wedding cake. And they get the gift basket. Beth is overly consumed with how great she looks in the photo. It’s about her. Again. I am hoping this is scripted. Because into every episode, a little rain must fall?
Apparently not. Because later that night after the cameras left she went through the album again and talked about herself. Jaime pointed out how she is missing the point of the album. They had a huge fight that we saw on surveillance video. In a talking head, Elizabeth is clueless as to why this was hurtful to Jaime. Jaime called her a materialistic cunt. That was a bit harsh. The he packs his stuff and leaves.
Iris & Keith
Iris and Keith are in the swing of real life. They both work full-time and don’t work the same hours. So they are struggling to find time together. Keith talked to one of his good friends about his concerns over Iris’s virginity. I just noted below that I somehow missed the previous episode.
Apparently Iris feels somekinda way about Keith having struggles with her virginity. She seems to have no clue that this would be a serious consideration for a man with principals as well as a lot of pressure. Thankfully, Iris’s mother breaks this down to her. I love Iris’s mom. She tells her through a metaphor to just do it.
Keith takes Iris horseback riding. Actually they get on horses and then are walked by people holding the reins to an anniversary lunch. I love these two together.
These two love their photo album and champagne. Keith gives Iris a heart necklace. Clearly, production gave them a small amount of cash to purchase their gifts. Jaime, it seems, upgraded for a Tiffany heart. Iris gave Keith some vinyl records. It’s a touching gift. And you can tell he was touched by the thoughtfulness. I might have gotten a bit misty-eyed myself.
Deonna & Greg
Pastor Cal drops in on these two. He thinks these two are in love. Deonna isn’t ready to vocalize it. Deonna is worried that Greg won’t like Deonna once Greg really gets to know her. One of the things that Deonna may have been hiding is that she is a poor sport.
These two go to a fancy steakhouse for their anniversary. Production pays for these meals. So Deonna wants to get the grilled octopus appetizer. Greg is not down for it but agrees to try. She’s never had it before either. I love that Deonna is adventurous. That is a great quality to have. It looks good actually. Apparently, it is very chewy.
Oh, now we are going to get to the airing of grievances. She feels like Greg is “too playful” in the bedroom. We just saw a scene where he was ecstatic to get four pecks on the lips in a bowling alley. I highly doubt he is that “playful.”
Back at their place, they get the gift basket with the wedding album. These two have their top wedding cake layer in the refrigerator? Greg wants to eat it. Deonna explains that it is for their one year anniversary. Then Greg leads her into the bed that is covered with roses, and a beautiful bathtub with candles everywhere. Then, Deonna puts on her full pajamas and goes to bed.
Amber & Matt
I missed an episode of MAFS. I didn’t realize it until just now. Things seem hunky-dory with these two and the last time I saw them I was sure it was over. How did that happen? She’s cooking dinner and he is coming home with flowers and pastries? This is a surprise.
Matt is still a bit overwhelmed by the loss of his bachelor days. He writes Amber a song. Awwww.
These two celebrate their one month anniversary eating wings at the Omni hotel. She says her favorite part of their first month together was the honeymoon. He says for him it was the first time he saw her coming down the aisle. He asks for areas of improvement. She suggests that he just make sure to let her know he’s alive. That’s about as low of a communication bar as you can get.
These two got to view their wedding on a movie screen on top of the hotel. If that wasn’t emotional enough, Matt busts out his song on the guitar. Can I just say that having a guy sing to you while playing the guitar is not as great as it seems on TV? I have had this experience a couple of times and it was really awkward. You don’t know where to look. You don’t know the right expression. It’s awkward. Maybe it’s just me. Nevertheless, it was sweet.
