So, how is she enjoying New Orleans?
Yara, who has described New Orleans as a "dirty village" before, is not having a great time in the US so far.
Jovi and his family bring up gross stereotypes
When they mention that Ukrainian girls all want to hook an American man and come to America, Yara shoots that down, and compares it to the stereotype that all Americans are stupid. That shut them up very effectively.
Yara would prefer to live somewhere else
Specifically, she names Budapest, noting that it is close to where her mother lives (you know, just like Jovi lives in New Orleans which is close to the bayou where his parents live).
Gwen does not like hearing this
Seeming to not yet know that Yara is pregnant, she worries about their future if they were to live in Europe with her unable to conveniently see them.
Now comes prep for the engagement dinner ... soon
Yara just wants to take a nap, so she does just that. She is so relatable. And also, of course, pregnant.
Jovi explains Yara's state of mind
Addressing his worried parents, he notes that a lot of things are weighing on Yara right now and of course she's uncertain about living here.
Jovi meets up with some friends
These buddies are, uh, not optimistic about his relationship. Alleging that Yara is just using him for a green card, they share that they've been taking bets on how long his marriage to her lasts. It's kind of cruel and ... I would never speak to a friend that way.
Yara gets ready for dinner
She is such a strikingly beautiful woman, so it's interesting to see her process of looking just right.
She even helps Jovi
Despite his laid back vibe, it takes some work for Jovi to get all dressed up, too.
But they still make time for one more argument before dinner
Jovi apparently brought Yara a crawfish, which she wouldn't have wanted to eat anyway but, while pregnant, found particularly repulsive. She worries that he's not being attentive enough to her ... and that this will get worse when he is drinking at the party. In the previews for next week, we see that she was right on the money.
Rebecca Parrott and Zied Hakimi
Zied is checking in on his niece, whom he misses. He was close with his family in Tunisia, which is a factor for him as he settles in to his new life.
Rebecca has a surprise
Zied cannot get actual tattoos like hers, but she presents him with fake tattoos -- temporary tattoos that are basically just stickers.
Zied tries it out
Of course, Zied is a Muslim man from Tunisia -- though different Muslims practice differently (true for all faiths), getting tattoos is against his religion, but he enjoys cosplaying fake ones.
They meet up for dinner
Zied was nervous about getting interrogated by Rebecca's daughter and by Micah again, but this time, there's a larger group ... and everyone but Rebecca is about the same age.
Now, we're sure that production did Hannah dirty by making her appear to be overly interested, but she's definitely a pretty young woman who was very friendly with Zied, even offering to help him move furniture.
Rebecca was not having a great time
Suddenly conscious of the fact that everyone at the table with her is a couple of decades younger, Rebecca is very aware of how friendly Hannah is ... and she doesn't like it one bit.
Zied totally didn't catch on
Rebecca's attempt to warn him that American women "are not like women from Tunisia" caught him by surprise. Meanwhile, everyone's a little worried that she's going to be too possessive and controlling and that it will drive off the man she loves.
