This week’s MAFS recap will apparently have a dog theme. All the husbands have new dogs in their lives and some are handling it better than others.
Virginia & Erik
I don’t think Virginia has the emotional maturity to be married. She gets mad and cries and runaway during difficult conversations. Erik has some issues with one of her dogs who is untrained and likes to chew on people. He wants to train it. She runs out of the house with the dog and melts down to production. Then again, Erik is really fed up and not being very mature in his interactions with Erik. Virginia has a panic attack. Erik has said multiple times in the conversation, if she doesn’t like it she can leave.
Later, they attempt to have a less agitated conversation. She doesn’t want to depend on Erik. She feels he is controlling. Then they are back to arguing about the dog. The dog is nipping at Virginia while they are arguing about the dog biting people. Erik wants to be a responsible dog parent and get her dog some obedience training. She actually needs some too. The dog keeps interrupting the conversation. Virginia flies into a rage out of nowhere. I don’t get what set her off and neither does production. Later that night, Erik has had enough. Apparently, she treats production badly as well. He says he is done with it. The next night they make up again.
Clara & Ryan
Poor Clara is hoping to stimulate Ryan’s nonexistent libido by going to a tantric yoga class. I already predict this will not go well. It didn’t. Ryan hated the entire thing. But, he does want to take Clara’s dog for another training session. He wants to make sure he is relating to the dog properly. Clara probably wishes she was the dog at this point. The big news for this couple is that Clara is “getting Ryan off every night.”
Haley & Jacob
These two have the same argument every episode. They decide to go race go-carts to have a fun day. Haley won the race and bragged about it the entire time. That’s not bonding, that is passive aggressive arguing. Jacob talks about his dating history as they cook dinner. Haley is asking him a lot of questions. Their lack of common interests becomes more apparent each week. They go on a double date to a pumpkin patch with Brianna and Vincent.
Briana & Vincent
These two are doing the best of all the couples. Vincent bought Briana a new bike and they are enjoying riding bikes together. They raced and Vincent let Briana win.
Paige & Chris
Finally, Paige’s brother shows up. He really needs to hunt Chris down and beat his ass. I can’t believe her mother and brother didn’t know about all of this. There are a lot of dog scenes this episode. All the guys are bonding with their wife’s dog. Chris said he doesn’t give a fuck about Paige’s dog. He talks to his mother about Paige and the allegedly pregnant girlfriend. She is upset that he has asked for a divorce.
