S13.E13: Tears, Jeers, and 25 Cent Martinis

Recommended Posts

Quote

With Decision Day looming, the spouses meet with the experts to discuss unanswered questions about their marriages.  One wife shows up less than sober, one husband ends up in tears, and another reveals that he's never been attracted to his wife at all.

Airs Wednesday, Oct 13 at 8:00PM EDT.

As always this is a spoiler-free thread. If it did not happen yet, please do not discuss.

Michaela is batshit crazy.  Zack is a hot, bawling mess.  Neither one would be attractive to anyone watching this show.

I’m sort of surprised they let Myrla do her chat with Dr. Pepper while she was so hammered. Even by the time she met up with Gil, she still seemed tipsy.  I guess it’s low risk, since they appear so happy and stable. 

Oh, and since Gil didn’t bring up sex when Pastor Cal asked if there were any questions he would need answered before Decision Day, it’s possible that they are intimate but not telling? Otherwise, it feels obvious he would have answered, “Yeah, what if we aren’t compatible in the bedroom since we haven’t done that yet.”

Pastor Cal is a chauvinist. Here is is asking Rachel what SHE can do so José don’t shut her out! I beg your pardon? She was right to say she’ll walk if it happens again and it WILL happen again. Cal was looking disapprovingly at her when she said that. 
José only wants to be a good provider IF it’s something HE wants her to have.

Johnny said he knew 15 years ago that he wasn't attracted to Bao, so maybe she stalked him and he ghosted her.  I suspect there's a lot more to this story; hence, Johnny's outright dislike of her.  Bao's not as innocent as she tries to portray, and I wonder about those three engagements, too.

Ryan and myrla deserve each other .. they’re both so depressing … always complaining .. never happy … they want everything their way and there’s no compromise with them …. Myrla just wants some simp that will do everything she wants and won’t press her to try new things … Gil is annoying too … he knows EVERYTHING just ask him … he has all the answers and seems to talk down to the other couples all in all is a simp behind closed doors

 

johnny is a piece a shit who’s just being a dick to get Bao to run that way he can say “ well I tried but she ran” he’s a self centered d bag … it’s either his way or he pouts ….

At this point I have no hope for any of these couples. Maybe and a big maybe Myrla/Gil and Jose/ Rachel might make it.

Johnny is just awful and dick. Michaela has anger issues. Brett and Ryan just hanging in there for the paycheck. This will be a forgettable season for me.

Where has drunk Myrla been all season??? Drunk Myrla is charming. My only regret is that Gil is missing out on Drunk Myrla. I think he would like her too!

I found Brett’s chat with Ryan’s sister Alexa very informative.  Alexa said that “maybe” now that they are back in Houston, her brother is reminded of someone else.  She was clearly insinuating that his heart might be elsewhere. I have a feeling Ryan told her something that she didn’t want to reveal.  In a way, I don’t feel sorry for Brett. When Ryan begged her for feedback, she just sat there and looked at him.

So let me see if I understand this.  Zach told Michaela that if “today” was D-day he would say “No”.  However, he wants them to keep sleeping in the same bed.  Yeah.  No.

The fact that Gil didn't inform Pastor Cal that they weren't being intimate, led me to believe that they are and that they made a pact to keep it a secret.

Yeah, what does that even mean?

Unrelated to your post:

Bao is no angel and a bit underhanded and irritating but she is good about communicating without being hateful to him. Cheerleader Boa is even more annoying. Her little “how you like me now” outfit did nothing for Johnny. 
I don’t think Michaela or Myrla are too crazy about her.

I listened closely and I'm pretty sure Johnny said "after our one date" he knew Bao wasn't for him, so that's when I think he ghosted her.  I theorized weeks ago here on the board that they had to have dated for him to "ghost" her in text messages when she suggested getting together again.  It didn't make sense that they only knew each other peripherally from college associations.

What I want to know is how Bao ever thought that if he didn't like her enough to ghost her 15 years ago that his feelings were somehow going to change now.  I guess hope springs eternal, but if that were me I would have had a completely different attitude toward the relationship.  I'd have acted a little more like Myrla at first in that I would have eased in really slowly and not jumped into the deep end of the pool and kept a skeptical attitude to see where his feelings were going first before letting myself get hurt a second time.  I think she liked him a lot and still had unfinished business with him going into this that prevented her from being that detached for that long.

I asked my husband who was worse, Ryan or Johnny and we both said Johnny, because he is cruel and has zero self awareness.  Plus it's all about him all the time and he couldn't care less about Bao's feelings.  At least Ryan is aware of his faults and knows he needs to work stuff out.  He takes responsibility even if he doesn't know enough about himself yet to change it.  He is at least trying in earnest and concerned about hurting Brett's feelings.  Johnny is still blaming a woman for all of his difficulties when it's clearly all HIM.  What an immature and SELFISH ass.

Johnny is ridiculous.  Bao is supposed to satisfy his every need and wish and he doesn’t care about hers. Last week he wanted to be wooed now he wants her to back off and just be friendly.   Whiplash 

 

And he’s a pro gaslighter. How can he sit there (on Unfiltered) and watch that clip of all the mean things he’s said to Bao’s face on camera and claim that she’s fake & different when it’s just the two of them (which, conveniently, can NOT be proven/disproven)? Then he has the gall to complain that Bao runs him down to the other wives (backed up by ever-so-stable & judgmental Michaela, chiming in with “all the time”)! Don’t be an ass & she won’t TELL people you’re an ass, Johnny! So she has to put up with your crap AND keep it to herself? No sir.

I wanted to slap Brett for not being more to the point with Ryan like Cal told her to be.  Cal is like a stopped clock, he's at least right twice a day.  This time he was right to tell her to ask him those questions point-blank, but she wasn't brave enough to do it.  Instead she put on her velvet gloves and wimped her way through some malted milk version, giving him a way to wimp out ONCE again.  The two of them are wimps, dancing around the inevitable.  Someone please put them in a room and slap their heads together, it's making me nuts!

Yeah, I saw that too.  If your own very thoughtful sister won't cover for you, that's a bad sign.  She knows what he's up to and is putting Brett's feelings ahead of his.  Pastor Cal accused Johnny of having "divided attention" but I think he missed the more obvious one here.  Ryan has been clearly preoccupied and mentally/emotionally somewhere else since day one of this marriage.  At first people thought it was over his friend who died but I think it's more likely another woman.  I don't understand how Brett hasn't nailed him to the wall over all of this.  She is an unbelievable, voluntary doormat.  Is she afraid she's going to lose him?  She never even HAD him so what's to lose?

Yep. He said something like “I agree with all of Dr. Pepper’s advice . . . IF I CAN GET BAO TO GO ALONG. Putting advice to HIM about his communication style on her . . . OK. 
 

I thought it was funny Ryan was scared to talk to Dr. Pepper because she’d call him out. Also enlightening that he said he had a switch in feelings AFTER THE SESSION WITH DR. VIVIANA. Sounds about right - I know their issues are not her fault, but she could counsel the happiest couple to the brink of divorce. Why didn’t Brett speak candidly with him, as advised? She (rightly) criticizes Ryan for not being forthright, but she’s just as bad. And his sis was gently trying to give Brett the 411.

 

Zack, Bao & Rachel need to cut their losses and move on. Tempers, cruelty & rage this early on & publicly/on TV do NOT bode well for behavior “after the cameras go away.”

 

Myrla & Gil seems well-adjusted and open to talk about their issues. I think Myrla will be less critical and negative (and more social & SOCIABLE) as she feels more secure with Gil and in general. It was touching when she got emotional when talking about her happiness - or was it the margaritas talking? LOL

I haven’t given up on Michaela. The producers truly guide storyline for effect. Still watching show and now in some silly disagreement with Zack she’s just ‘splainin’ her view to camera. I’m okay with that.  The Bickersons.  They both need to chill out. Michaela is the most insecure bride I’ve seen of MAFS ever I think.

Johnny needs to just leave. Like right now. And he can take his little tank tops with him along with his tiny bird chest. He is an enormous douchebag. Whatever problems he might have with Bao, she deserves to be treated with some common courtesy. Johnny is a rage-aholic and just the tiniest scratch of the surface sets him off. Yeah, no thanks. That’s not good marriage material. Trust me, I know.

Not sure who is crazier, Johnny or Chris from last year.  I am very sorry for Bao.

Yeah, we didn't even need the previews to see that hurricane coming right into the Gulf headed straight for Houston, did we?  She was on her best behavior for a couple of weeks but that kind of crazy can't keep up the act for too long before coming out again.  She is on and off again so fast coming out of nowhere that no one could ever keep up with it.  I don't know how the producers think it's safe to put volatile, unpredictable people like this on the show.  One of these days someone is going to get hurt.  She's the kind to stalk someone, key their car, bully their new girlfriend months or years later, meanwhile acting like she wishes them no harm and all the best.  Don't they realize there's a very real danger with some of these people?  They have been lucky that no one's gotten really hurt yet.  Michaela is so far gone I actually worry for Zach's safety even after the show is over, even if they go their separate ways on decision day.  She'll be baaaaaaaaack!!! 🤯

Very scary! That Exorcist-style exit from the sectional when she & Zack were talking? And the rave out and destruction in the common area in the middle of the night? Whoa. I did get a chuckle out of all the shots of Bao peeking through a crack in the door to watch though . . . LOL
