It’s time to head back to Vegas for another MAFS recap. This season is already super dramatic, mostly due to Chris. And we start right away with production insisting that Chris tell Paige some devastating news. It’s only day three of the marriages! Then we back up two hours. Sigh. I hate when they do that.
Clara and Ryan seem like they are off to a good start. So at least there is that. Virginia and Erik seem to have an age and more importantly, a maturity difference.
Paige & Chris
These two have a huge breakfast with very little conversation. Chris is definitely a man of few words. He tell Paige that he has some devastating news. But he didn’t share what the news was. Paige is furious that he is not sharing something with her. Chris continues to stonewall her. This is quickly becoming the Chris show. Paige tries to get production to tell her. But they say that Chris needs to be the one to share the news with her. Eventually, Chris drags Paige into the bathroom, locks the door and turns on the shower to tell her the news. He tells her to take her mic off. Chris tells her and then leaves her in the bathroom. He tells production, “She’s having a moment.”
Eventually, she gets dressed and leaves the hotel room. She goes to Brianna’s room to talk to her and get some help processing the news. Chris’s ex-fiance is pregnant with his child. Chris talks to Vincent about the baby. Paige just needs to pack her stuff, go home and get an annulment. He is a fraud. Chris seems like he wants to stay married to Paige. Paige on the other hand isn’t really down for it. Apparently, the ex is six weeks along. Brianna thinks Paige needs to leave the marriage.
Paige and Chris actually go on a dinner date. It’s awkward. Chris says the hooked up because her dad had died and he went to console the family. He apparently just told her that he got married. He apologizes to her for all of his stupidity. Sort of. He asks her if today were decision day, what would she say. She says she would walk away. Suddenly, Paige is the queen of his life now and comes before everyone. He is full of compliments all of the sudden. Paige seems to be willing to stick it out. Oh, sweetie.
Briana & Vincent
It seems like Vincent’s grandmother is doing better. Briana convinces Vincent to rent a high-rise apartment and to put off kids for a couple of years all over breakfast. You can tell Briana is very used to getting her way. These two are very well-matched and happy. I see this couple lasting. They are talking about living a long, happy life together. They also have had sex and that seems to have gone well. In fact the title of this episode comes from this conversation. It was magic.
Haley & Jacob
Jacob is super happy to be married to Haley. Haley sees okay with it. She actually brings up his favorite topic, exercise. UGH way. Haley and Jacob have a private dinner in the underwater shark aquarium. Jacob is just so weird. They are asking each other a lot of interesting questions. Haley seem to be trying to give him a chance. They had a nice time together at dinner. This couple is still up in the air for me. Next week Jacob seems to be upset with Haley for going out without him.
Clara & Ryan
These two head to the dophin area. I had no idea The Mirage had dolphins! So cute! They can even view them underwater. They talk about having kids. They even discuss baby names. This couple has big differences when it come to religion. Clara needs to be a bit more open about going to church.
They two talk about living together and Clara says she is messy. You can just look at Ryan and tell he is pretty regimented. Ryan says he doesn’t have much closet space in his place. Clara is concerned that Ryan isn’t ready to live with a woman he is married to.
Virginia & Erik
These two get a really nice cabana by the pool. Virginia is ready for shots. Why didn’t they match Erik with the flight attendant? Erik doesn’t think women and men can be friends. Virginia says she has tons of guys friends. Virginia is not happy with this conversation at all. Later the go on a very romantic dinner date. Erik is very supportive of Virginia.
After dinner all the couples get together for cocktails. Everyone is happy with their matches. Except for Paige and Chris of course. All of the women are furious. Clara says that she thinks that Paige has Stockholm Syndrome. Virginia upholds her tradition of being very late to the event. Chris steps away to cry. He is such a cry baby. He feels like Paige is getting all the support instead of him. Well, YEAH! Paige goes to comfort him. Then Chris returns to the group, but continues pouting. Chris has to tell Erik about the baby news since they were late. Chris starts to lose it again. It looks like Chris’s pouting is going to continue next week. And he considers getting back together with his ex. WOW.
