HOW IS THIS A THING THAT IS STILL HAPPENING?
It’s gotten to the point where the experiment has very much ended, there are no experts, and we are legit just following around four couples who are trying to live their lives.
Nick is devastated because his dad has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and his plan to move to Perth is no longer possible. This storyline is really sad and these are simply not feelings we signed up for.
Listen to Clare Stephens and Kelly Glover discuss tonight’s episode of Married at First Sight on The Recap. Post continues after audio.
Sharon is going to visit Nick in Melbourne to discuss their future and…
What is with these people flying across the f*cking country to see their significant other, and then getting a taxi from the airport?
We apologise as this issue should have been broached last night, when Nadia caught a goddamn cab from the airport after flying from Brisbane. We thought it and we forgot to mention it and – again – we’re sorry.
Ahem: If your partner FLIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO SEE YOU, you pick them up from the airport. In your car. They do not get a stinky taxi. Understood? Great.
Sharon arrives at Nick's place, where he is idly looking out the window with a nice relaxing cup of tea. Like... he wasn't at work. Or doing anything urgent. FFS.
We then cross to Alene who is spending her first weekend with Simon since they returned home. Simon was also too busy waiting at home for Alene to arrive to pick her up from the airport. Cool.
Look. We need to talk about Alene's booping of Simon's nose, because we like it a lot. "Did you miss me?" she asks, while placing her index finger on his nose, just like she used to do when she had Simon locked up in his cage during the experiment.
