I believe this one hour episode is really the second half of the one we got last month. Hopefully we will get more of Kenny and Armando this time. So let’s get right to the 90 Day Fiance the Other Way Recap!
Deavan & Jihoon
We start in Korea where Deavan is about to learn that the apartment she rented online isn’t the apartment she is about to enter. And, it’s in a really scary neighborhood. Deavan’s mama goes in on Jihoon. He has done nothing to prepare for their arrival. It seems to me that Deavan never gave Jihoon the address or he would have known it was in the “Korean ghetto.” The apartment is tiny and doesn’t even have a stove. Did Deavan not get photos? Jihoon wants to stay there for a month. Wait until Deavan find’s out he doesn’t even have a job. Jihoon reaction to his colossal fuck up is to cry.
The next morning, Jihoon took off to his parents to get his wallet. He’s been gone for hours. But Deavan’s mother is there. The baby seems to be a very good baby. When he finally returns, he says the four words you never want to hear from your partner, “We Need To Talk.” Jihoon seems to be saying he pays for everything. When Deavan points out he has paid for nothing, we get Jihoon delivering the titular line, “Don’t Grump Stop.” I think she has the right to be more than just grumpy.Then Jihoon finally says, ” I have no money.” Deavan says she is going home when her mother does.
Kenny & Armando
Here is hoping that everything with these two goes smoothly. We need at least one couple to get along. Armando tells his daughter, Hannah that they are going to go live with Kenny. She’s very excited. She seems to love him already and it sounds like he spoils her. They are still two weeks away from moving. Is Kenny walking to Mexico? No. But he is driving. He’s driving four 11 hours days in a row. I think I would have stopped at the four season in Dallas or somewhere for a few nights of rest. Currently, he is in the dreaded Texas part of the trip. I’ve driven across the entire country on I-10 before. And Texas is just awful. It’s nothing against Texas but going into and out of states makes you feel like you are getting somewhere. Texas is just miles of nothingness that never ends.
Aw… Hannah says she is very happy she is going to have two dads. Could this family be any cuter? Armando is going to the new house for the week alone to get things set up for Kenny. Jihoon could learn a lot watching this show. His parents are super depressed and his father doesn’t even tell him goodbye. His mother crying is heartwrenching. He will come back with Kenny to get Hannah in a week.
Melyza & Tim
Tim’s mommy comes to help him pack. Why would Tim cheat on his beautiful Colombian girlfriend a month before she came to visit? His mom doesn’t seem very optimistic about the move or the relationship. Tim makes one last trip to his therapist. I can’t stand Tim. Tim hasn’t been telling Melyza he loves her because he is afraid she won’t say it back. Tim has not quit his job or got rid of his house. That’s probably the smartest thing he has ever done.
Sidenote: There are police cars at the house across the street where hipster boy lives. Also there has been another bigger guy living there for a while. It looks like they are packing up to go canoeing. The cop cars might be at a house farther down his street. Wonder what is going on now? The cops walked back to their cars and went the other way. Weird. That was way more interesting than a therapy session with Tim.
Arilea & Biniyam
Over in Ethiopia, Arilea is about to discover the realities of her living conditions. And they are worse that Deavan’s. She needs to get back on a flight before she is too pregnant to fly! It all happy tears at the airport. Even Biniyam’s mom’s first impression is positive but guarded. Arilea isn’t thrilled that Biniyam cut his dreads and has lost weight. Somehow this makes her think that Binyam is a totally different person. She is crying in the car to the house. Didn’t they face time? How has she not seen him at all? She says, “You know I don’t handle stress very well.” Um, if you know that about yourself, why are you flying to Ethiopia to have a baby in a third world country?
It’s time for Arilea to see her new apartment. It’s awful. After dropping her mom off at the hotel, they are driving in the dark to the apartment. It starts off better than expected. At least for me. Arilea doesn’t like the nice cleanish bedroom. She’s going to really hate the bathroom and kitchen. There are other peoples shoes in the bathroom The toilet has no seat? And most importantly there is no shower. Just a bucket. There is mold everywhere. I don’t think she even noticed there was no shower.
Jenny & Sumit
Finally, we get some time in India. It’s been forever since he last had the cow in the new house. These two are happy waking up together. Jenny is worried that Sumit is still lying about the divorce. Things are crazy outside the house. There are monkeys on top if cars Two guys appear to be trying to kill each other. There are random cows all over the road. And, there is an enormous amount of traffic. Surprise! Sumit doesn’t have the divorce papers. Apparently, the divorce is not final yet
Next week: Kenny FINALLY makes it to Mexico! Can we have a show with just these two please? Jenny finds out that divorces can take four years in India. Ari’s mom wants her to leave Ethiopia. Is she allowed to fly now? Jihoon apologizes for lying but Deavan seems done. Yazan’s family calls Brittany a prostitute.
