Y’all! I don’t know what this episode is going to be. I am a bit behind on MAFS recaps and the recording is 88 minutes long. It seems that I get a “monthly” test of the emergency broadcast thing every damn day. But normally when that happens I get the rest of it in a separate recording. So, basically, I am going in blind (and late) to this episode. It’s the one month anniversary episode and it seems things are not going so well.
Jasmina & Michael
Production has sent them gifts and planned a romantic date for all of the couples. These two are going to rewrite their vows. It’s kind of a reset for the couples. Michael takes Jasmina for dinner in the spot where they got married. That’s sweet. They are going to recreate parts of their wedding day. That’s kind of sweet. They told each other their new vows, and they were sweet. Then, they dance. They seem happy. Jasmina feels like the first for weeks were a waste. But, it seems they have gotten to a better place. Later, they eat some of their wedding cake and head to bed.
Katina & Olajuwon
Katina “planned” the anniversary date. They are going on a gondola ride. Olajuwon, is very excited for his first gondola ride, even though he can’t pronounce ‘gondola.’ They seem to be in a good place. How did that happen?
Lindsey & Mark
Mark is the one “planning” the event for this couple. They are going camping. It’ a really cool campsite with a teepee and a pizza oven and a fire pit. Lindsey loves it. Mark is not a happy camper. I love that he is doing this for Lindsey. They made a pizza in the pizza oven. Mark gives her a lovely globe terrarium with crystals and a plant inside. They also seem happy. I thought all the couples were doomed last week. Now they seem great? What I miss?
These two get their basket from production, with wedding photos and romantic gifts at the campsite. They are really enjoying looking at them. There is also a film of their wedding day that they enjoy. Mark gets very emotional. Aw, he is so sweet. All he wants to do is protect her and keep her safe. I love Mark. Don’t fuck this up, Lindsey.
Noi & Steve
Steve gives Noi gifts. Most of them are for Sushi. I guess they are at Boston Harbor. She bought him a Polaroid camera. Then, they go on a boat tour with dinner. Again, they seem happy. I feel like I have missed a lot. I never noticed until this outfit how flat chested Noi is. Noi brings up his job and making money. And things suddenly take a turn.
The Dinner Party From Hell
All the couples go to dinner together. Noi says she is in love with Steve, and she likes him. Steve needs some more things in the relationship to iron out. But, he is hopeful. And, they have had sex. She wants kids. Jasmina says she didn’t expect it to be so hard. But, now, they are back on track. Mark says that he and Lindsey need to get on the same page for plans after decision day. Lindsey says that Mark has been wishy washy with her. Lindsey is talking too much. Michael says that he needs to talk about long term plans. Jasmina seems to say she doesn’t have romantic feelings for Michael. Katina and Olajuwon, seem to be kind of in the friend zone. Michael is questioning whether or not Katina is there for the right reason. She has no idea what he is talking about.
Apparently, he saw something on her phone he didn’t like. They start bickering. She doesn’t want whatever the issue it out in front of everyone. Katina and Olajuwon leave the dinner. That effectively ended dinner. Back at the house, he finds a dating profile on her site and confronts her about it. Katina claims she forgot she had that. It’s an old account. They get into a screaming match. Katina starts ripping her mic pac off. Olajuwon is done with her.
Next week, we go back to all the bitching and arguing. This episode was oddly chill up until the end.
