I think this is the last 90 Day Fiance The Other way recap of the season! Is it me or did the season just fly by? The new regular 90 Day Fiance is apparently going to be on Friday nights. That is great news for me! I can get things up more timely on a Friday night. It’s 5:30 right now and I just put on a pot of coffee because I am already sleepy AF. Being a morning(ish) person is hard, y’all. I’m just trying to stay awake long enough to get to this recap!
Brittany & Yazan
Basically, this is Brittany’s last episode to try and redeem herself. She and her amazingly normal and respectful friend, Angela, go to meet Yazan at a restaurant. They will also have a translator. I thought he was going to tell her about the death threats. But, basically he just says he wants to marry her quickly and he wants to tell his parents they are getting married and she will remain Christian. However, he says they will probably disown him. So he needs to be sure she is all in. She is decidedly NOT all in and asks for more time to think. In his confessional, Yazan tells us he doesn’t want to tell her about the death threats because it my scare her off. It’s weird that they didn’t order a single thing to eat or drink, right?
It’s time for Angela to go back home. She is the sanity that Brittany needs. Later that day, Brittany plans to meet with Yazan and his brother to find out about the family position. The translator is also there for this meeting. Oh! Yazan is not at this meeting! The brother is also hot. Brittany finds out that Yazan’s life is in danger and she breaks down in tears. The brother is very sweet to her. The brother says he will never turn his back on Yazan. That said, Yazan has already lost a lot of things that he really values to be with her. He tells her that he will help cover for them as much as he can and they should just move forward. He is convinced she truly loves Yazan. I’m not.
Ari & Bini
Meanwhile, in Ethiopia, Ari’s mom is leaving. Her father left a few days earlier. Ari misses her mom already. On the way to the airport, her mom tells her that she’s not really down with Avi being raised in Ethiopia. Why can’t Bini move to the US? Has that even been mentioned? I am shocked that Ari is not taking the baby and going home with her. Her mom is also very against the baptism. I just checked the Covid situation in Ethiopia. They have only had 1,647 deaths to date out of a population of just under 110 million people. So they are a lot safer there than in the US. Ari is adamant that she wants to stay in Ethiopia with Bini.
It’s time for the baptism and it starts at 6:30 a.m. Ari is grumpy. She is wearing her star of David necklace to the baptism. I have to give her credit for keeping her word to Bini though. Bini is nervous about the ceremony. She has no clue how this whole thing works. It will definately be a new experience. The men and women sit separately. There seems to a lot of religious men there. And there are multiple babies being baptized. The priest gives the baby a name. The baby is baptized naked. Poor Avi squeals like a stuck pig the whole time. Overall it went fine. Then there is a big celebration. Even the sisters admit that Ari was less cunty that day. LOL.
Deavan & Jihoon
In South Korea, these love birds are preparing for their big wedding. Wasn’t the traditional Korean wedding enough? How many times do these two need to get married? And her mom is coming back to terrorize Jihoon. I feel sorry for Jihoon. Mostly because he looks like a 12 year old. Their new apartment is nice. Even Deavan’s mother approves. Jihoon goes to his parents house to get a box to present to his in-laws. But first there is some sort of Korean tradition that has to take place. For reasons unclear, Deavan hides in a closet while her parents do some sort of Korean ceremony with Jihoon. It involves guys with dead squid on their faces and a box full of gifts. Then he has to find Deavan. It was sweet.
Deavan tries on her wedding dress for her mom. It’s really beautiful. The tattoos are super distracting though. Deavan is really happy with Jihoon and is very close with his mother since the miscarriage. I really kind of hate that this family didn’t work out. She’s already moved on with another Korean guy. I guess she has a type.
Jenny & Sumit
Every week I get a 30 minute first look at the next season. I always plan to use it to set up for the show in advance. But, I never do until tonight. And oddly, it is not the first 30 minutes of the show. So now things are sort of out of order. The show actually starts with Jenny and Sumit! Jenny is still sobbing to Sumit’s brother and his wife about her love for Sumit. The sister in law is urging Sumit to tell his parents about the ring ceremony. The brother tells us in a confessional his parents are not mentally prepared for the news. Now, Sumit has to tell his parents. OH! Now Sumit wants to postpone the ring ceremony. Wow. Come on Sumit!
Once again, these two called off the ring ceremony. They are having Sumit’s parents over to talk to them about their impending marriage. I feel like we have already seen this scene, but I guess it was a preview or something. His mom wants to take Sumit home with them and away from Jenny. This will not go well. This is the first conversation Jenny has had with her future in-laws in eight years. That’s a long time. The first thing his mom says is that they are there to take him home. Sumit says no. He asks for their permission to marry again. And again they say no. His mom says they will get married over their dead bodies. They are really being horrible to Sumit. Mocking Jenny. Saying that her kids are older than he is. Is this really the best he could do? Everything goes to hell. Jenny goes to her room and says she cannot do this to this family. She just needs to go back to America.
Next time…Oh I thought this was it. Also, why was there no Kenny and Armando tonight? Brittany says that Jordan isn’t safe for either one of them at this point. Ari flips out at a huge religious celebration. Kenny and Armando get news about their marriage license. Deavan and Jihoon have their big wedding.
