Married at First Sight Recap: Surprise! I’m a Stalker!
The truth came out on Married at First Sight this week.
And now viewers are left to wonder:
Will Tristan Thompson bail out on his marriage to Mia Bally?
On last week’s installment of this controversial reality series, Mia claimed to Tristan (a different Tristan, mind you, not the loser who cheated on Khloe Kardashian) that she was in the dark about why she was stopped by authorities at the airport on the way to the couple’s honeymoon.
Three counts of alleged stalking and one count of alleged credit card fraud? Huh? What?!?
Mia played ignorant at first when confronted with these issues. She said it must have been a case of mistaken identity.
She told her new husband that she had no idea from where they came.
But Bally finally broke and came clean about her past on Tuesday evening.
“She does know the accuser, and they did have a brief relationship,” Thompson told the relationship experts that set the couple up initially, adding in a sit-down with them:
“And this is why she was embarrassed to tell me. And even though I appreciate her honesty, it still really hurt that it took her all week just to come clean and tell me.”
That’s some tough news to try and handle.
Bally, when discussing this topic with Dr. Jessica Griffin, tearfully explained her arrest was related to a man she “rebounded” with after her most recent breakup with an ex-boyfriend.
“It was wrong of me. I shouldn’t have done that,” she said of the relationship.
“I don’t have contact with that person, I don’t care to associate myself with that person at all. But I’m hoping it hasn’t ruined the chance for me and Tristan in the future.”
Why did Mia lie about her sordid past to Tristan? For “self-preservation,” she explained. Because she was scared and desperate, basically.
“I feel betrayed,” Thompson told Pastor Cal. “To me, marriage should be built on trust and honesty … but Mia’s been lying to me, and it’s hardly been a week.
“With that trust broken, I’m just not sure if I’m able to stay in this marriage.”
So… is this the end?
Is the romance over?
Tristan actially told Mia that he loved her — and then she revealed the two had sex even though she was previously reserved physically. But we guess guilt over took that heistance and… BAM!
“He’s my rock. I’ve been more physical than I would in any other relationship ever,” Mia said.
Elsewhere on this week’s episode…
… there was more sex talk.
You see, Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd haven’t had any real problems in their relationship to date.
They had great chemistry from the start, yet were waiting until the right time to have get it on in terms of intercourse.
“We’re just going to do what feels right,” Bobby said. “Sex should just happen.”
(Editor’s Note: So should love and marriage, but you realize you signed up for a program that thrusts two strangers into this legal union, right?)
Finally, however, Danielle chose to make the first move and simply make the pounding happen.
She explained that she usually isn’t so aggressive, but was SO attracted to Bobby that she stepped outside of her comfort zone. Bobby, in turn, remarked that he’s into spur of the moment romance, so this seemed to be his style.
“We freaking did it on the honeymoon,” Danielle blushed as she told the camera.
As for Dave Flaherty and Amber Martorana? They were’t doing very well.
It all started going badly when the former had a major meltdown at a salsa lesson. He was not into dancing said he wanted to “kill himself” during the lesson.
“My arms are going to start throwing punches … I’m f-cking done with this,” he said.
Amber wasn’t exactly into this reaction, but she did her best to remain calm and play it cool.
“Watching Dave overreact today, it’s hard for me to see. We’re supposed to be doing this to bond and have a good time, and I’m just feeling really uncomfortable,” she said.
Things managed to get worse from there.
At dinner, the couple brought up their religious values, always a touchy subject.
Dave is pretty darn religious, while Amber is far more secular.
She brought up her concerns when the topic arose, saying it was a “bigger issue” for Dave than her, and adding that many people who are religious are “hypocritical.”
Yikes again, right?
In response, he called her “judgmental.”
So… was this the end for this marriage?
Despite their differences and despite Dave’s disdain for salsa dancing, the couple remains committed. At least for now.
