Evelin says that they need to do marriage counseling before they can start to heal the rift between them.
Sure enough, they see a marriage counselor
Maria Bonilla meets them outside where they can speak without masks on, and they both explain what happened and why they cannot move past it.
Evelin is not a forgiving person
Not everyone believes in forgiveness. You "forgive" someone for being late to dinner or for forgetting your birthday, not for truly and deliberately wronging you.
But there's more than that
It's not just about the cheating or the lies that followed. It's also about how Evelin is embarrassed. She feels like a fool and she feels weak for having trusted him and for letting herself care so much about this relationship that this hurt so much.
Plus, she reveals that there was more to this
Evelin was in a bad car accident. She's okay, but she was obviously rattled at the time. She reached out to Corey when it happened ... and he did not return to be with her.
In fact, she says that he was with Jenny that day
She saw on a mutual friend's Instagram Story and heard what she believes to be Jenny's voice on the video, something that Corey has denied. That really stung.
With pressure, Corey comes clean
He offers Evelin a wholehearted apology. She says that this makes her feel hopeful, because this time, he's not trying to justify his actions -- he's just sorry about what he did.
Kenneth Niedermeier and Armando Rubio
Kenneth checks in on his family, whom he loves and misses since moving to Mexico.
Cassidy is pregnant!
Meanwhile, Kenneth's grandson is already 5 -- and Kenneth has missed so much. He was very involved during his first three years of life.
There are a lot of emotions to process all at once
Kenneth is happy for them, but there's more than FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) behind his tears. He is homesick in so many ways, and this is something that he has to share with his fiance because he wants to be honest.
He tells Armando how homesick he is
The two are forced to visit a laundromat because their washer has stopped working, and this is where the conversation takes place. Kenneth loves Armando and doesn't regret being with him, but it's so hard for him.
Armando tears up in sympathy
He's heartbroken that his fiance feels this way, and he has to ask if it will impact the wedding or lead to it not happening. (The answer is no, by the way)
Steven Johnston and Alina
Alina has decided that she will remain in Turkey with Steven rather than going back early with her mother, Anna, who returns to Russia that day.
She's still giving him a chance to prove himself
But there is very much a test involved here, and Steven is not making high marks.
Shoutout to production for filming in a sweltering room
The conversation that takes place here is worth the sweat, however, and we're not just saying that because some viewers enjoyed Steven's attire. You know who you are.
Steven took Alina and her mom's statements to heart ... sort of
They accused him of hypocrisy -- he boned multiple women but tells Alina that she can't so much as take a sip of her mother's coffee. He is resolved to be even more rigid in obeying Mormon rules for how he should live his life.
Words aren't enough
Alina accurately calls Steven out for how his behavior does not always match up to his words, and she's right. He seems to struggle to explain himself at times, but we think that we understand -- it's hard to explain yourself when you yourself don't understand why you are the way that you are.
Has he followed through on his promise?
As Alina knows, the answer is no -- Steven still has his social media accounts up and running despite her getting him to agree to deactivate them.
He somehow thought he wouldn't have to?
If you want to set a boundary and say "no, I won't delete my social media," that's fine. Honestly, it's probably healthy. But Steven explains that he agreed to Alina's demand because he hoped that just saying "I will" would be enough, and that he wouldn't actually have to do it. That's ... absurd.
All the while, Alina has a test going
Her friend Masha has been reaching out, not outright flirting but making contact in his DMs. Remember how he mentioned the snow in Utah to her one time and Alina flipped out? Well, now it's a bit more serious.
He's straight-up invited Masha to visit him
He told her that she was in Turkey and suggested that she bring a swimsuit. He is in Turkey with Alina and claims to plan to marry her. That is foolishness and it's very hurtful to Alina.
Alina tells him all about it
Steven is very hurt that she has been testing him and feels that it was dishonest. Alina is very hurt that he failed the test and feels that he is dishonest. He promises to delete his social media ... as soon as he gets to a better internet connection and can save his photos. Things are not happy between them, and they don't seem to be getting any better.
