I am so ready for this MAFS recap. I think. I’m just not sure how much more Paige can take this season. I hope both his wife and his pregnant girlfriend tell him to hit the highway. It’s only day twelve and I already feel like it has been a lifetime. On this episode, everyone is going to chat with family and friends.
Briana & Vincent
I totally get where Vincent is coming from with his hurt feelings. Vincent apparently made it to the parking lot before he came back to the apartment. Briana is very disrespectful. Vincent seems to want to just move on. But I don’t think Briana understands what she did wrong. Later Vincent meets up with his friend, Jalen. Vincent tries to explain Briana’s constant biting comments. Jalen misses the point of what Vincent is trying to explain. He laughs during the whole story. Jalen is a dick too. Vincent clearly does not feel heard, once again.
They two have their families at their housewarming party. I think they are the only couple that had their families together for the first time. Both of their mothers are meeting for the first time. It’s also the first time Briana has met his mother and brother. Vincent’s mother speaks Spanish. I didn’t know he was Hispanic. Things seem to go well with the families.
Erik & Virginia
Virginia is in Savannah to be in a friend’s wedding. And Erik’s brother’s wedding is the same day so he is literally home alone. Erik and Ryan meet up while walking their dogs. Virginia is a bit standoffish with Erik at times. Then, Erik meets up with his friend Brandon. He explains that she is super independent parties too much. She’s in Savannah for four days. Brandon is worried that Erik is sort of over managing her. I disagree.
Virginia is finally back from her trip to Savannah. Erik explains that her dog is much calmer when she is not around. She makes her dog hyper. Also, apparently they texted every hour while she was gone. That’s excessive and would drive me nuts. Virginia didn’t seem happy about it either. Virginia is going to introduce her two best guy friends to Erik. This has the potential to go badly. Two of Erik’s friends also join the party. Virginia starts with the tequila shots. Oh God, one of Virginia’s guy friends pulls Erika on to the balcony to chat. He tells him not to come off as controlling. Erik doesn’t appreciate the advice. But eventually, they both think the conversation went well.O
Chris & Paige
Chris is meeting with who of his friends one is Pastor Dwight and the other is his friend Mikael. I’m surprised he has any friends. They guys seem to think his news will be that Paige is pregnant. Instead he tells them he’s asked her for a divorce. Then, once again he explains that he didn’t find her attractive when she walked down the aisle, in fact he muttered “oh fuck” when he saw her. Then he drops the baby mama drama on them. They are both speechless.
Finally, Pastor Dwight explains that Chris needs to learn what a commitment before God really means. Then he says, “You child, if it is your child, will be fine.” I too have some questions about paternity. They both think Chris is selfish and an embarrassment to his family. They do not support divorce. They both think Paige is “a diamond” and he should be working on the marriage. Then he checks out of the conversation entirely.
Haley & Jacob
Haley meets up with her friend and unloads about Jacob to her friends. Also, the way she tells the story is that it was supposed to be a girls night and a couple of the husbands showed up. I like how her friend asks her what she is going to do to make an effort. She gives good advice. Haley is still in it, at least for now. Haley and Jacob are having a fiesta party for their housewarming. It seems like Haley’s family bailed so she invited the other girls.
The party is awkward. And by the party I mean Jacob. But, bless his heart, he is trying. Haley’s friend tells Jacob that Haley is not the overly emotional type. Haley tends to flee at the first sign of conflict. Jacob’s friends like Haley. His friend basically says that Jacob needs someone who is very direct with him. He doesn’t always pick up on subtlety. On another night these two talk a bit. It seems like Haley is really trying. I want these two to work. I think they both are trying.
Girls Night/ Guys Night
It time for the brides to chat in one location and the grooms to chat in another. Haley, Briana and Clara are the only girls at the table. Clara invites the ladies to her housewarming. Clara had some trivial issue with Ryan when he didn’t want to do jello shots at a party. Haley seems to really be ready to work on her marriage with Jacob. Clara admits they have not had sex and she is ready for it. We have not seen Paige yet, this entire episode. I’m surprised she didn’t come to the girl’s night.
Jacob, Vincent, Erik and Ryan are together having some beers across town. Vincent feels some kinda way about never having alone time. Jacob seems like he is worried that at the end he may not be all in. Ryan says that he holds back on his emotions and Clara is always all in from the beginning.
Clara & Ryan
When I am writing these recaps I am only in a very small window so I have to scroll back and forth looking to the couple that is on the screen. I scrolled eleventy billion times looking for Clara and Ryan before I realized they haven’t had any screen time as a couple and we are three fourths of the way through the episode. That seems odd to me. But we are going straight her he housewarming with the other girls and Ryan’s friends. And they start with tequila shots. Briana makes a quick exit because she has plans with her husband.
Clara tells Ryan’s friends that she has never seen Ryan with his shirt off. She tells us she is sexually frustrated. It sounds like they are doing everything except actual intercourse. That would be frustrated.
Even More Chris & Paige
Chris called Paige to ask her to meet him and the baby mama the next day for a conversation. Paige says she has to pray on that. But, she ends up agreeing to meet with them. Chris and his baby Mama Mercedes (because of course) come to the meeting all dressed up like they are going out clubbing afterward. They are all super quiet. No one seems to speak first. Paige doesn’t even believe she is pregnant. She asks how far along she is and she says about seven weeks.
Mercedes says she had no idea that Chris was getting married. He didn’t tell her until after she told him she was pregnant. She says she was shocked and confused. Then, Paige just every so slyly drops the bomb that she had a pregnancy scare of her own. Mercedes asks, “Pregnant by who?” lol. Oh Paige you need to tell her that you guys had sex pretty much every day and twice on some days. Then Paige questions Chris’s intentions. Then Mercedes drops a bomb on Paige and says she has no intention of working things out with Chris.
Chris is hating every minute of this. And I love it. Paige tells Mercedes that this relationship no longer serves her. She has no ill feelings. Paige feels at peace with the whole situation. Mercedes asks Chris why he isn’t saying anything. Wait for it… HE is irritated. No dude you ARE the irritation. Chris storms out after saying that PAIGE was disrespectful. Holy Hell! She has been extremely respectful. The two women hug it out. Paige says she is okay with walking away at this point. Mercedes doesn’t want him either. So it’s a happy ending for both of them. Paige looks super sad at the end.
Next week it looks like the cracks show in the other marriages. I love this show!
