On this episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, The Wife Chantel discovers some unsettling news about The Husband Pedro, Paola and Russ find out just how scotch-guarded the surfaces of their home are, Ashley learns that Jay is up to no good (once again), Larissa and Colt continue to despise each other and Andrei continues to believe that money grows on trees.
Our first stop this week is Las Vegas where we find Colt moping around the house because Larissa didn’t immediately jump on his mama’s-boy body after being released from jail (again).
Lucky for Colt, his number one fan Mother Debbie is back in town so he heads to the airport to fetch her. Colt greets Debbie by telling her she looks cute (because apparently Walmart turtleneck sweaters really do it for him), then they load up and head to Casa de Cat Hair.
During the drive, Debbie and Colt recount the latest run-in with the law that went down at their house and Colt attempts to earn some tough guy points by telling Debbie that he could have been shot. Debbie’s concern only grows when they arrive at the house and she notices the screen on her bedroom window has been cut. Colt tells Debbie that Larissa cut the screen, but he provides no explanation as to why. Debbie also realizes that Larissa went through her belongings and she’s not happy about it.
Don’t worry, Debbie, we’re sure Larissa didn’t disturb the shrine to Colt hidden in your closet during her pillage-spree.
Next we check in with Ashley who has once again grown suspicious of Jay and his ability—-or lack thereof—- to keep it in his pants. Because of this, Ashley decides to sit down with Jay’s (only) friends from the barbershop to find out what kind of shenanigans he’s been getting into behind her back—and by shenanigans, we mean other women.
After some persuasion, Kendell, the owner of the barbershop, reveals that Jay had sex with someone in the shop’s bathroom when he was supposed to be giving a girl a tattoo—while the shop was packed full of customers and children, no less.
Ashley thanks Kendell for snitching on Jay and makes a quick exit from the shop. Jay’s friend Michael follows Ashley out the door and tells her the barbershop bathroom girl was someone she actually had met at a recent cookout. Ashley thanks Michael and tells him Jay is gone (just like all of the barbershop customers when they heard Jay and his cookout side-piece going at it next to the boxes of Barbicide in the bathroom.)
Down in the Dominican Republic, The Husband Pedro stops by The Wife Chantel’s hotel room to talk about how much of a disaster the previous night turned out to be. Pedro says he feels like he’s stuck in the middle of Chantel’s issues with his family and Chantel says she feels the same way when they are in Atlanta. Chantel suggests that she and Pedro spend the day together but Pedro says he’s doing what he came to the Dominican Republic to do: spend time with his family, drink heavily and gyrate on random women.
Next we check in with Andrei and Elizabeth who have just learned that flight delays and cancellations in Turkey have caused some issues in Andrei’s father’s plans to come to Florida. Andrei tells Elizabeth he’s worried about his dad flying from New York to Florida for the final leg of his “long journey” and has decided he will fly to JFK himself to accompany his dad on the flight to Tampa.
Elizabeth asks Andrei if they have the money to pay for an extra flight and Andrei assures her they’ll figure it out. Elizabeth nonchalantly tells Andrei she’ll just use her dad’s credit card to pay for everything, but of course, Andrei isn’t down for that idea.
After learning the flight will cost $600, Elizabeth says they can’t afford to pay for it (at least not without The Bank of Chuck) but Andrei tells her not to “sabotage” him over a measly 600 bucks and reminds her that it’s for his father and “not a random bum.” Elizabeth says asking her dad for (even more) money isn’t a big deal, but Andrei’s pride won’t allow it… though strangely it will allow him to spend his free time at the gym, pretending he has a lucrative handyman business on the side.
Elizabeth ultimately gives in to Andrei and pays for the flight to New York. Once Andrei lands, he wanders around the airport and eventually stumbles upon his dad. The two re-board their plane make their way to Tampa, thus concluding Andrei’s $600 15-hour excursion.
Elsewhere in Florida, Paola is in labor and Russ is hard at work inflating the birthing pool and welcoming Colleen the hippie midwife and her pal, the doula. Soon Pao is working different positions—in and out of the pool—in an effort to get this baby out of her with minimum noise complaints from concerned neighbors.
Ultimately, Pao opts to give birth on her and Russ’s bed and before Russ has a chance to check the return policy on the inflatable pool, their son, Axel, makes his debut, right there on the Tempur-Pedic mattress.
Back in the barbershop parking lot, Ashley calls Jay to let him know he’s been caught (yet again) and furthermore, if he shows up to her house she’s calling the police. Jay plays dumb (not a stretch) and hangs up the phone. After Ashley calls him back multiple times, Jay finally picks up and says he didn’t actually have sex with the cookout girl, but rather they partook in another not-suitable-for-the-barbershop activity in the bathroom.
Ashley tells Jay she’s kicking him to the proverbial curb and if doesn’t want his clothes left on the literal curb, he can come get them.
“They’ll be on the front porch for your dumb***,” she tells him.
The producers ask Ashley what she’ll do if Jay tries to come in the house and she again says that she’ll call the police and because she still hasn’t filed his paperwork, Jay will be deported back to Jamaica and back to his no-dishwater-having house.
With Pedro off with his family, Chantel makes plans to meet up with her friend Obed—another person who has been burned by The Family Pedro. Obed tells Chantel he believes Pedro’s family and one of his friends arranged for her and Pedro to meet and that their whole marriage was setup so that Pedro could get a green card and earn more money for his family’s mysterious business. Chantel believes that Pedro’s mom is running a business arranging these sort of marriages with Americans and now doubts her “fairytale” marriage with Pedro.
Obed says Pedro’s family probably doesn’t like Chantel because Pedro actually did end up falling in love with her. Chantel says she wants to believe they actually did fall in love, however, everything is starting to look suspicious to her now.
Back at her hotel room, Chantel calls The Family Chantel to tell them what a hot mess her trip to the Dominican Republic has been. Chantel also mentions the Find-A-Wife service Pedro’s family may or may not be running and The Family Chantel offers to come to the Dominican Republic, which Chantel kindly passes on. They also suggest hiring a private investigator, which would probably just be Karen herself, dressed in a trench coat.
Back in Vegas, Larissa has caught up on her sleep following her night in the slammer. Colt wants to talk about what happened. Larissa blames Colt for the incident, specifically him taking the data and wifi off of her phone. She says after the police handcuffed her, she didn’t know what was happening, though she assumed Colt’s lies had something to do with it.
Colt says he didn’t say anything but Larissa doubts his claims. Colt assures Larissa they will find (another) good lawyer; however, Larissa is fearful of what this all means as far as her getting her green card. Colt says he feels like Larissa just wants a new life and doesn’t care if he’s in it or not (ummm, obviously). Larissa says this whole incident was the last straw and if Colt messes up again, she’s packing up her multiple bins of makeup and
finding her next victim hitting the road.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth and Andrei take Andrei’s dad to a diner to give him a true taste of “American culture” by way of a greasy hamburger. During the lunch, Andrei tells his dad that they will all be going to Elizabeth’s family’s house that night, where the parents will meet for the first time. Andrei says he’s worried that Elizabeth’s family will treat his dad the same way they’ve treated him.
Um…apparently he’s worried that they’ll give him money?
Elsewhere, Ashley is angrily stuffing Jay’s belongings into trash bags, and her friend comes by—armed with wine, like a pro—for “support”.
While ripping photos of Jay to shreds, Ashley gets a phone call from the cookout girl who confirms that she and Jay actually did have sex, despite what Jay is claiming. Shortly after, Ashley hears Jay pull up to the house so she heads downstairs to wait for him, armed with a glass of wine and a whole lot of pent-up frustration.
Better grab one of those trash bags of clothes for protection, Jay!
Until next time!
