Alina & Steven
Since there isn’t much going on this Friday night, I have some time to catch up on my 90 Day Fiance The Other Way Recaps. Let’s get straight to it. We start in Turkey, which is a beautiful country I would like to go back to as an adult. Unfortunately, Alina is making some really poor decisions and is stuck there with an abject moron. What does she see in this fool? He’s not even physically attractive. After a week at the old apartment, they decided to move to a bigger place. Of course Steven wants to do some stupid Mormon compatibility thing. Alina points out that Steven has too many female friends. She asks him what he was thinking when he asked if he could go on dates. Steven admits he has been dating. Alina feels betrayed.
Alina wants to know what else Steven has lied about. She checks in with her friend who is trying to flirt with Steven online to see if he bites. She also tells her friend that Steven continued to go on dates after she thought they were exclusive. Steven did reply to Alina’s friend and actually seemed to invite her to come during the winter. She tells her friend to respond to him and see how far he takes it. Then, she will decide what to do. Alina wants to talk to Steven about his dating other women when they were together. She finds out that he was kissing other people. Every stupid thing Steven says is making things worse. Did he just compare himself to Jesus? Yes, yes he did. He promises to delete his social media.
Oh and he needs to tell her he slept with some of his dates. So, these two go out to a wine tasting. Even though they don’t drink wine. Apparently, they will taste it and spit it out. Alina misses drinking wine now that she has become part of the cult of Mormon. Steven suddenly blurts out that he is not a virgin. She’s speechless.
Ariela & Biniyam
Over in Ethiopia, these two take their son to the doctor. He has a bulge in his groin area. What on earth is Ari wearing as pants in this highly Orthodox country. There is more skin than fabric. The doctor says that the baby has a hernia and needs surgery as soon as possible. He refers them to a pediatric surgeon. Ari already wants to take the baby home for the surgery. Bini is pissed. It’s like she is always looking for a reason to take the baby home. Due to Covid, Bini can’t get a visa. Ari goes to the barber with Bini. She tells him she wants to take Avi to the US for his surgery. She tries to blame it on insurance. They both cry.
Ari is worried that Bini will hate her. Bini is pissed that she waited until they were out in public with lots of people around to tell him. Bini is terrified that she will take the baby and never come back just like his first wife did. She already has her ticket. Bini leaves the barber shop without her. He says to the camera that he will not let her do this. Bini begs her not to go. Later, they talk to Ari’s mom who reassures Bini that Ari will come back. But, he is still terrified.
Later, Ari goes with Bini’s sisters to an Ethiopian spa. Bini wants her to be the one to tell the sisters about taking the baby to the US. Part one of the spa treatment is getting smoke blown into your vagina. I seem to vaguely recall seeing this on another show. It doesn’t seem like a good idea. Next is butter in their hair. I have done a mayo hair mask before so this seems more reasonable. I’m not sure about the coffee and honey on their faces. Good Grief! She is going to the US for a MONTH? Why so long? This sisters are sad and worried about how Bini is going to survive this.
Armando & Kenny
Armando and Kenny are still visiting Armando’s family. Kenny talks to Armando about the talk with his father. Frankly, I think it went better than expected. Armando understands that going to the wedding might be something that takes him a bit to digest. Kenny needs to just pipe down about Armando’s issues with his father. Kenny’s daughter goes out with Armando’s daughter Hannah, as well as his mother and sister. They go to a seamstress for dresses for the wedding. Kenny’s daughter cries about Armando’s family having a hard time with his homosexuality. She lets them know that Kenny is a good father and Hannah will be well taken care of.
It’s time for Kenny and Armando to go pick up Hannah and go back home. Armando’s dad wishes everyone a safe trip. And he gives, Cassidy, Kenny’s daughter a necklace. He really does seem to be coming around even if he is not on the time table that Kenny expects. He’s making progress. Some things can’t be rushed. Armando’s whole family is crying. I think Armando could do so much better than Kenny.
Ellie & Victor
In Colombia, Ellie and Victor discuss what to do moving forward after the hurricane destroyed the island. Victor says they need to occupy their house and protect there stuff. He says they can go back and forth to the island and rebuilding their house. Ellie goes out for a beer and facetimes her friend back home. She tells her about the plans to rebuild the house and return to the island for real once there is power and utilities again. Her friend brings up Victor’s infidelity. They haven’t talked about it because so much else is going on.
Jenny & Sumit
I was starting to wonder if we were going to get any scenes with these two! It’s the second hour and we are just getting around to them. Sumit talks to Jenny about his conversation with his family. They are not accepting Jenny as part of the family. Sumit says that his mother called him afterward. She is upset that his father can’t stop him from living with or being engaged to Jenny. He was so hurt he couldn’t even talk to Jenny about it until now. Sumit’s mother was close to the wife he had to marry. She misses her as daughter. She blames Jenny for his divorce. Jenny says that his mother needs to get some therapy. Sumit says they all need to get into counseling. For both of them, and Sumit’s parents.
What the heck? Next week Sumit’s parents move in with Jenny and Sumit? Corey meets up with Jenny from Peru? Armando wants to have another baby. But Cassidy is very much against it. After, Steven is caught texting other women, AGAIN, Alina is ready to call the whole relationship off. Victor tells Ellie he will give her all the money invested back during a huge fight where she wants to go back home. Also, it is already time for Kenny and Armando’s wedding! Jenny is going to leave India since Sumit is never going to marry her. Ari seems like she is in fact NOT going to come back after two months in the US. SO MUCH DRAMA!
