Last week, Twitter had some word choices for Love is blindAt the resident’s square, MBA student Sikiru “SK” Alagbada – who decided at the altar that he couldn’t marry pilates instructor Raven Ross. But it was tough watching Raven tearfully accept a hug from her fiancé’s disappointed mother, a moment that pales in comparison to the emotional carnage of the Netflix finale that premieres Wednesday. this.
Some of this week’s results (*cough* Nancy and Bartise *cough*) are somewhat to be expected. But another wedding almost equals Giannina Milady Gibelli’s runaway bride moment for the sheer sheer value of it.
Where to start, where to start? Well, there’s a spoiler from last week: Did Nancy Rodriguez and Bartise Bowden end the relationship after the incredibly long pause we left Bartise last week? Reader, you will simply shocked to learn that after weeks of telling Nancy, his friends, and everyone watching at home that he didn’t like the relationship, Bartise said “no” at the altar after his fiancée’s “yes.”
Bartise may have rejected Nancy at the altar – after spending a lot of time in their relationship reiterating that she was not his usual “type” – but it seems the man that Reddit named “Barfsneeze” still hoping he and Nancy can be together.
After the ceremony disbands, Bartise pulls his unhappy bride aside in the hopes that things will go better — at this point her family steps in to give him a piece of their mind, even when Nancy begged them to back off.
“What I’ve been through in the real world with you and with your family, and with everything we’ve talked about, there’s no way I think it’s appropriate to stand up there and say ‘yes’. reason,” said Bartise. Meanwhile, Nancy’s mother and brother refuse to back down. Her brother insists over and over that he hates to be “right” about Bartise, while her mother insists, “He’s not ready for who he is. Because you are too much for him.”
When the couple finally found some alone time, Nancy told Bartise he was “damn for me.”
“I was ready to marry you for who you are,” she said. “But in the end, it is you who are not ready. For me it’s not, ‘Oh maybe it will work later.’ To me it’s like, no, I chose you and you didn’t choose me… I said yes and you said no. How not black and white? “
Somehow, it wasn’t even the wildest wedding – it was just the first. Next up are Alexa Alfia and Brennon Lemieux, whose dates apparently went off without a hitch because despite their obvious differences, these two actually seem pretty great together! And afterward to the big one, Cole Barnett and Zanab Jaffrey.
It seemed like Cole and Zay’s wedding was going to be complicated from the start, but Street where this was somehow broken was particularly confounding.
Cole and Zanab are one of those couples who seem to spend all their time directly with Love is blind fight to regain what they “have in the shell”. That usually leaves them “unknown,” but as far as Cole knew right before their wedding, the two were making real strides – despite all the blinding signs pointing to a possible relationship. Their relationship was in trouble. When the groom said to his friends, “We’re really good now. Even when we’re arguing, we’re always trying to work something out and get somewhere and make progress. I think a lot of our love story is that we’ve come to a circle.”
Zanab, also seems to be feeling sentimental as she and her potential future husband prepare to head down the aisle. “The fact that I am here and Cole here and we fell in love, I just believe that God had his hand in every step of this way,” she said. “…I know I can have a happy life with Cole, but I need him around.”
“I think honestly I wouldn’t know until I looked up and saw Cole,” she added. “I think the time will come when I will know everything I need to know.”
At the start of their ceremony, Zanab said a prayer — “because that’s what Cole and I stick together” — and she thanked God for meeting him. She tells Cole that before they met, she fell in love with him because of the warmth she felt from him. However, when it was time to take the oath, her tone began to change.
“I think I have a really good idea of what kind of woman will love you the way Cole needs to be loved every day for the rest of your life,” Zanab told her fiancé. “And I think you and I both know it wasn’t me… You disrespected me, you insulted me, you criticized me, and for what it’s worth, you’ve destroyed self-confidence with your own hands. mine. And I hate that you influenced me. “
“You have disrespected me, you have insulted me, you have criticized me, and for what it is worth, you have single-handedly shattered my confidence.“
“The mess is, I know I love you,” Zanab continued. “But everything in me, according to the logic of my brain, tells me that love shouldn’t feel that way. Love shouldn’t hurt like this. I can’t marry you, and neither can I. “
When the woman he thought he was going to marry walked down the aisle away from him, Cole was at first stern. However, after a few minutes, he began to reveal that Zanab had never talked to him much during their relationship; instead, he assumed, she waited to do it in front of his friends and family because it would hurt him more. “It was a joke,” he said. “…She tricked me, grown up.”
“I know we’re not perfect, but that?” he concluded with a scoff. “It was one of the worst experiences of my life.”
Something tells me these two are going to have some very interesting conversations when it’s time to reunite.
Last but not least are Colleen Reed and Matt Bolton – the latter are fans calling for weeks about his jealousy problem. (Honestly, Brennon aside, this season’s guys were less than inspired.) Still, it was an enthusiastic “yes” from both the bride and groom—and after that, very many “Damn it!”
With all the champagne, the rings exchanged (or rejected), and the “I do” and “I shouldn’t,” it seems all that remains is the dramatic reunion that is sure to come. take place. Based on what we’ve seen this season, it’s safe to borrow a popular catchphrase from a certain other dating show and say this might just be the most dramatic. Love is blind Reunion Ever.
