I think we’ve reached the end of the MAFS Houston recaps for this season. However, I have MAFS recaps, one is half an hour and the other is an hour.Both titled, Where Are They Now? But, I managed to screw up my Hallmark Movie viewing due to malfunctioning remotes. I had to dash to the corner store today as soon as I woke up because both remotes had dead batteries. When I went to make she the second one I fixed was working I hit a button that changed the channel and made me lose an hour of the good movie I had not seen, with Jordan Sparks. I’m skipping over the repeat the 2014 cat themed Christmas movie that is apparently the prequel for the new one at 8 p.m. It beats doing anything productive to prepare for Nancy. Like maybe bathing or cleaning the bedroom.
Michaela & Zack
I’m going to try to keep this short. Because, Christmas movies. We pick up with Michaela storming in on Zack’s one on one interview. After she refused to be interviewed with him. Zack is pissed because she already told her version of the story and this is his time. He’s right. She’s a hothead. Production agrees and sends Michaela packing. Zack says that he drove Michaela home from decision day because they came together and she had been drinking. She throws a hissy fit of some sort in the car and broke her car window. Then she says, “Something happened at her work” that Zach did not disclose but I’m guessing she got fired for being an irrational lunatic.
Zach let Michaela stay at his house for four days. He made it clear, according to him, that she needed to be gone by the end of the week. However, he was intimate with her during those four days. Of Zack, don’t send crazy people mixed messages. We don’t respond well to that well. Once again, Kevin tries to get Zack to agree have Michaela. He does not. Zack says he is soured on marriage in general. Zack ends by saying that he will always be there Michaela if she needs something. WTF?
Bao & Johnny
I’m not sure Johnny is going to own anything. They talked about all of the good times they had in their marriage. And they did. But, then Johnny would freak out and have a meltdown, or say super mean things to Bao. We get a montage of some of Johnny’s bad behavior. Bao is often begging him to say what he wants to say. Johnny says he felt like he was never allowed to speak his mind. Johnny says they had an agreement where they would speak about things off camera first. Basically, he says if we would have seen their private conversations about her anxiety he would look as bad as he did.
Bao tries to get Johnny to talk about whatever it was he wanted on camera. She says she asked that they not speak about intimate details of their sex life. Bao didn’t want the world to know when they consummated their marriage. She wanted to keep things private. Johnny says that Bao setting guidelines with scenes with her family, or saying things on the show that might upset her family made her seem fake. That’s not being fake. She told him everything. She just kept some of the sexual stuff off TV out of respect to her parents. Frankly, I don’t need to know details either. Modesty is not fakeness. Johnny says BAO was trying to play the victim. She WAS the victim. He’s trying to PLAY the victim!!!
Johnny admits he loves and spends a lot of time with Myrla. He acts like they are just friends. But, stay tuned. Johnny says he wanted to do a wife swap during the show apparently for Myrla. Bao is apparently spending a lot of time with Zack.
The Actual Reunion
Or not. Apparently, we are going to talk to the women first since we did the men last week. The women didn’t have a whole lot of things to say. So moving on. The the experts give their own feedback. They really thought these were the best matches ever. I really don’t need their justifications on why they picked these couples. Zipping through this part. Then, they talk to Jose and Racheal in an effort to save their marriage. Their whole issue is they need a neutral ground for their marital home. Jose looks very miserable during this conversation. Dr. Pepper says that Jose needs to see someone for anger management. For now, they plan to stay together.
Oh wow. Now the experts are going to interview all the couples? What is the point of this post-mortem? They show Myrla saying all sorts of great things about Gil. Gil cries. He feels like she was playing him the whole time. That is because she did. Gil deserves better. Dr. Pepper calls Myrla on her bullshit. Pastor Cal calls her out to a degree also. They know she was just in it for the TV show.
FINALLY, The All Cast Reunion
Johnny is the only one who admits to missing filming. I’m sure Myrla does as well. Zach says that the best part of the experience for him was getting to meet other couples. Ryan likes to poke at the mean people on social media. Gil says his DMs are full. He says there are lot of guys that DM him too. He has crazy fans and one in particular who DMs him every Wednesday. Apparently, some on social media think Jose is gay. He’s not.
Johnny and Myrla’s body language does not seem like just friends to me. They are both leaned in toward each other and basically sharing an armrest. And they’ve been to Chicago and Cancun together since filming wrapped. They are totally getting it in. Johnny doesn’t even try to deny it. Their banter has Gil very upset. Everyone thinks Jose has changed a lot. They have faith that Racheal and Jose will make it. Next, we talk about Micheala’s tantrum and her bizarre behavior at the couples retreat. Micheala says that her reaction was because her father was hit by a drunk driver at night. That’s bullshit. Micheala is getting aggressive again. Zack disengages.
When Kevin asks who would have better suited for partners out of the group. Gil immediately gets up and leaves the stage. Myrla thinks it is funny. My TV is paused on Johnny who looks upset that Gil is leaving and Myrla who is grinning like a Cheshire cat. Micheala goes after Gil. While they are talking, Myrla is playing with Johnny’s arm! The producers let Gil and Micheala leave. It ends after that and we do see that “Where Are They Now” will show Bao and Zack’s relationship. That’s an odd pairing if you ask me.
