It’s the morning after the dinner party.
Everyone appears to be extremely hung over, no one more so than Clare who literally attempted to drink away Jono.
Clare and Jono speak to the cameras about the tragedy that is the demise of their relationship, while Dutchie (who is just out of view) celebrates with her brother, known only as ‘Clare’s other dog’.
Presumably, this is the last we’ll see of Clare and Jono, which leaves us with mixed feelings. But alas – our mixed feelings are resolved when Clare gives us the quote of the series, while reflecting on her future as a single woman:
“Worst case scenario [she means BEST CASE scenario] I’ll foster 80 dogs, and die as a single, happy woman at 82 and you’ll find my body half eaten by random foster dogs. And I probably would’ve died pretty happy.”

And with that - the most beautiful love story to take place on television is off our screens - but will forever remain in our hearts. #ClareAndDutchie
'Psychologist' Mel Schilling introduces us to the focus of this episode: the home visits. She says this phase of the 'experiment' (if they use that word one more time we swear to God...) will allow them to "assess the strengths and weaknesses of each couple".
We thought that given the significant lack of insight given by the 'experts' on the show, we might as well do a quick little recap of the strengths and weaknesses of each couple, and vie for jobs as reality TV psychologists.
Simone and Xavier:
Strengths: Their faces and/or bodies and/or synchronised meal prep.
Weaknesses: Xavier's hair and/or Simone's inability to pronounce 'Xavier'.
