90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? continues ... and we'll start off with that fight.
Larissa Lima confronted Coltee about living with Debbie, something that she says he had promised was only temporary. She doesn't mince words, either.
Nicole's family pleads with her to see Azan the way that they do, but she walks out of the room, refusing to listen.
Russ and Pao are dealing with pregnancy drama while Jay and Ashley shared very different versions of Jay's Tinder scandal.
Chantel's meeting with Pedro's mom goes about as well as Andrei's meeting with Elizabeth's mom.
But Andrei does something that chills Elizabeth to her core, and viewers were scared, too.
Colt and Larissa
It looks like all of that TV therapy didn't pay off, because this troubled couple went right back to fighting. After Larissa clashed with her sister-wife ... we mean, mother-in-law ... Debbie, Colt just stood on the sidelines and equivocated. Not helpful.
Larissa wants Colt to step up
She feels that he should act as mediator when she and Debbie argue. Unfortunately, this leads Larissa to say some very unkind things.
90 Day Fiance 9 June 2019 - Larissa says Colt is a p--sy
"You are a p--sy … I will make the shirt, ‘My husband is a p--sy,’” Larissa taunts Colt. “I’m not happy to live with Debbie because I can’t be Colt’s wife." Meaning that Debbie acts as an emotional surrogate in so many ways, as many fans have observed.
Colt puts on his "I'm so reasonable" face
Colt tells Larissa that she should treat him with respect. Keep in mind that this was filmed before Colt's massive cheating scandal in December, so he still had a leg to stand on in that regard.
Larissa was not happy
The way that she spoke to Colt was not okay, but her frustrations are understandable. At the same time, the dysfunctional relationship between Colt and Debbie means that neither of them are sure of what life would be like if they lived without each other.
Nicole and Azan
Nicole's meetup, which should have been a sexy vacation, fell through under mysterious, Azan-related circumstances. So ... what now?
Nobody in Nicole's family is Team Azan
Like countless 90 Day Fiance fans, this latest cancelation -- Azan's "family emergency" that forced him to call off their romantic getaway to Grenada the day before -- has her family hoping that Nicole can see reason about the guy who's already called off their wedding more than once.
Joe, Nicole's stepdad, weighs in
"He won't marry her this time," her predicts. "He won't marry her next time."
Here's how he's so sure
He received an email, a redacted version of which is shown on screen, claiming to have information about Azan's family disapproving of Nicole. Anyone can send an email, but if this is true, it would mean that Nicole is being strung along for nothing.
Her family wants this to be a wakeup call
Nicole flat-out tells them that this is definitely a lie -- which it may be, though it's unwise to dismiss EVERYTHING you read online as a lie. She also says that even if it were true, it wouldn't change anything. GIRL.
Will Joe be right?
Nicole is now planning to move to Morocco, uprooting her entire life and her young daughter, this summer. If ANY of the claims about Azan are true, he is morally obligated to tell Nicole before she takes this tremendous leap.
Chantel and Pedro
Chantel arrived to visit Pedro in the Dominican Republic, which meant that Pedro was angry that she crossed the boundary that he had set -- and it also meant that she would have to deal with his family.
Pedro picked up Chantel at the airport
She was surprised that he was there to greet her, and she felt that it was really promising ... even though he was displaying a major case of resting b--chface that clashed heavily with the message that his balloon and flowers sent.
But let's be clear: Chantel had to come
Even if we pretend that 90 Day Fiance had nothing to do with her flying to reunite with Pedro, he was dancing and grinding on another woman, one who has a crush on him, and who is friends with his sister, Nicole. Nicole, of course, wants Chantel to be ancient history.
Pedro's family was not thrilled about Chantel's visit
Pedro's mother explained to Chantel that she had been enjoying getting to see her son, and did not appreciate her daughter-in-law's intrusion into this visit. Super healthy family.
Pedro's mom has one bone to pick, in particular
So far, she has heard Nicole and Pedro's descriptions of the BRAWL that took place. She is understandably alarmed.
"From what I heard, it was a real disaster"
Chantel acknowledges that this was not solely Pedro's fault, and that her brother shares some blame. But she really wants to move forward. In the mean time, nothing has changed or been resolved.
Pedro's mom felt that Chantel was "disrespectful"
This is a woman who is upset that Chantel is visiting with her own husband, so we're not clear why she feels that Chantel should show her respect that she is clearly not returning. Chantel manages to smile politely through all of this, which is basically her superpower.
Elizabeth and Andrei
Elizabeth and Andrrrei's drama took a decidedly negative and even scary turn.
Andrei thinks that he doesn't need any help
This absolutely exhausting storyline continues as Andrei sits down with Elizabeth's dad and insists that he doesn't need a job offer from him because he refuses, "on principle," to take orders from his father-in-law, even if it is in exchange for money.
Elizabeth's dad tried his best
As a rule, i usually don't side with ANYBODY's dad, but Elizabeth's dad is clearly trying to bend over backwards to make this offer palatable to Andrei. He talks about how he has jobs that need doing, a line clearly designed to make Andrei's ego accept the deal and feel like he's the one doing a favor.
It doesn't work
This is just so stupid. So effing dumb. The guy has a child on the way, and Elizabeth is not going to be able to keep working, but Andrei is too stubborn -- and resentful about the free house in which he, by choice, no longer resides -- to take it.
Elizabeth argued with her sisters about Andrei's mule-headedness
She ended up leaving in a huff to then argue with Andrei, and during that argument, he snatched her phone out of her hand. That's never okay and a HUGE red flag, and thankfully, Elizabeth understands that. "I think that Andrei definitely is a little possessive at times," she correctly acknowledged. "But right now I literally saw a side of him that’s not OK."
Ashley and Jay
This was a thankfully less eventful segment, as Jay was visited by his sister, niece, and brother.
Jay was actually happy!
We can totally understand that moving countries leads to a degree of social isolation. This is probably more true of people who's version of socializing usually ends with banging somebody. It's been a major adjustment, but seeing his family lifted his spirits.
Jay told his sister HIS version of his scandal
"Jay told me about what he did with him texting girls … and I think Jay definitely messed up but it’s texting, it’s not that serious," his sister assessed. "It’s not like they met physically. I just hope it’s something they can work through."
That sounded great ... a little too great
See, he left out some details -- as Ashley later explained. He hadn't just chatted, he had been lying. And some of that "texting" had included sexting. Planning to meet up for sex is a little like planning a murder -- both can get you in trouble, even if you don't follow through.
Ashley's revelations alarmed Jay's sister
"What Jay did is a lot worse than what he told me, and I think she has all the right to be upset," she admitted. "He’s acting like the Jay he used to be back in Jamaica."
Russ and Paola
We also saw Russ in what amounts to panic mode. They have a baby on the way, and after their previous miscarriage, there's a lot of emotional baggage
Paola feels guilty
She's worried that being too excited about this pregnancy might disrespect the love she had during her last pregnancy. There's no easy answer for that except to suggest that she go to therapy.
But ... Pao doesn't want to go to a hospital?
She thinks that it's too "clinical," which is literally the entire point of hospitals -- to do the job correctly. Kind of like refusing to do math with a calculator because the calculator's emotionless and undistracted. That's how it's supposed to be.
Anyway, Paola was looking at birthing centers
Birthing centers are controversial, in part because they don't have all of the equipment needed to handle things if something goes wrong -- and that's what has Russ worried. He loves his wife and, though he's trying to be supportive as she goes nuts during this pregnancy, he cares about her life more than he cares about her giving birth in a place that has the right "vibe" or whatever.
