90 Day Fiancé Happily Ever After Season Premier Recap: Into the Lion’s Den

On last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After, Pedro Jimeno enjoyed his last night of freedom before his wife Chantel Everett arrived in the Dominican Republic. Apparently, both Pedro and Chantel suffer from the same affliction: sharing all of their marital business. Obviously, they don’t seem to understand they are shaping a negative perception of their spouse to EVERYONE. You can’t only tell people only the bad things happening in your life.

Chantel is on her way to the Dominican Republic to ruin join Pedro’s trip. Despite, not wanting his wife to come, he still greets her with flowers and a balloon at the airport. His face tells the true story. He annoyed with her very presence. On the way to the hotel, Pedro tells her he had the best week of his entire life. Without her. I guess meeting his wife or getting married isn’t even in the running.

At the hotel, Pedro tries to convince Chantel to go to his mother’s house to talk to her. He asks her a great question “Are you here to fix the problem, or make more problems?” I think its funny Chantel is so offended Pedro doesn’t want to engage with her family. Yet, she doesn’t think it’s rude not to want to engage with his. Does this couple not have one mature married person around them to give them sound advice?

Chantel arrives at Pedro’s mother’s house in hopes of finally laying everything out on the table. She even asks for a translator so there is nothing said that she can’t understand.  The conversation hasn’t even begun and I can already tell this isn’t going to go well. Chantel and Pedro’s mother only shake hands to greet one another. This is clearly a sign of how they feel about one another.

Pedro’s mother expresses how she is disappointed that Chantel decided to interrupt their family time. She also wants to address how her daughter was treated by the Family Chantel while she was in the US. Chantel tries to quickly curtail that conversation as “the past,” but Pedro’s mother isn’t having that. I don’t blame her. If my child was attacked and threatened with immigration, I would address it as well.

Pedro’s mother tells Chantel point blank that she will not tolerate any more disrespect. I think it’s hilarious that Chantel is upset Pedro isn’t supporting her, but she does the same thing with her own family. I hope Chantel watches this episode back. Pedro is sacrificing his family and happiness to please her. This is something that Chantel doesn’t do at all while in the US. Maybe this will also show the Family Chantel how much this man they have terrorized loves their daughter. The poor translator didn’t realize she was stepping into a war zone.

Colt (Las Vegas, Nevada) & his mom Debbie Larissa (Brazil)

90 Day Fiancé Happily Ever After Season Premier Recap: Into the Lion’s Den

90 Day Fiancé Happily Ever After Season Premier Recap: Into the Lion’s Den

We see the aftermath of  Debbie Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima’s fight about how to furnish the house. Debbie was very upset about Larissa’s suggestion that she move her slot machine to the garage.  Colt Johnson didn’t realize he was going to unleash the beast, by siding with his mother yet again. Larissa can be heard yelling “Shut Up- EEEEEE” and calling him a “pussy.” Larissa has had it with living in their sister-wife lifestyle. I can’t blame her. I don’t know many people who actually want to live with their mother-in-law.

Colt interrupts Debbie’s cat time to check on her after the fight. Debbie is really upset that Larissa is constantly moving her things to assert her position. Debbie claims she wants to move out of the house because of her constant fights with Larissa. I highly doubt that will ever happen, given their dependence on one another.

Elizabeth (Tampa, FL) & Andrei (Moldova)

90 Day Fiancé Happily Ever After Season Premier Recap: Into the Lion’s Den

Andrei Castravet is still pissed Elizabeth Potthast went behind his back and borrowed money from her father. Andrei goes to meet with him to finally set the record straight. Andrei makes it clear regardless of his unemployed status he isn’t going to be under his thumb. He doesn’t want to mix family with business despite his father-in-law trying to help him get on his feet financially. Good luck taking care of your family on a part-time handy man’s salary.

Elizabeth arrives at her sister’s house to pick out things for her baby registry. Elizabeth reveals she doesn’t think she will be at the apartment she just moved into for very long. She wants to move into a house with the baby. That sounds great, but does she realize a house requires money?

Her sister criticizes Andrei about for being too prideful about her family helping her. Of course, Elizabeth jumps to his defense. Elizabeth feels that they are too involved in their life. Elizabeth’s sister points out that she shouldn’t ask their dad for money if she doesn’t want the family involved. Elizabeth leaves after being confronted with the truth. None of these people on the show can handle the truth. Yet, they put out their business for the public to comment on when they can’t even handle their own family’s opinions.

Andrei comes to pick Elizabeth up from her sister’s house and is annoyed with the drama. Her sister texts her and Andrei snatches the phone from her hands angrily. Andrei must have lost his mind snatching something from his wife. I guess Elizabeth didn’t realize what she was asking for when she wanted a “manly man.”

What she got was a lazy, insecure controlling one. A heated argument ensues about her family’s interference in their lives. Andrei wants Elizabeth to tell her family to “get out of their lives”. Elizabeth is a bit of a shit stirrer herself. She incites drama on both sides then gets upset when they have an opinion.

Paola (Colombia) & Russ (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma)

90 Day Fiancé Happily Ever After Season Premier Recap: Into the Lion’s Den

Paola Mayfield is almost 8 months pregnant and she is trying to get prepared for the birth. Russ Mayfield and Paola tour a birth center to decide where they want to have their baby. Poor Russ, this is totally foreign to his conservative mind. He is extremely worried about potentially having their child in an unstructured environment without doctors. Paola gets emotional remembering her miscarriage and how it’s affecting how she is dealing with her current pregnancy.

Paola decides to write a letter to the child she miscarried in hopes of closure. Russ is emotional reading the letter his wife wrote. I hope Paola is able to find peace and happiness with the baby that will arrive soon.

Jay (Jamaica) & Ashley (Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania)

90 Day Fiancé Happily Ever After Season Premier Recap: Into the Lion’s Den

Jay Smith is excited that his family is coming to visit for the first time since he left Jamaica. If he is smart he will go back home with them, rather than staying with his warden, Ashley Martson. Jay confides in his family about the issues he has with Ashley. Even they can see the change in Jay since he has been in this sham of a relationship.

Ashley, Jaym and the family go look for a tree to cut down for Christmas. This is the happiest I have seen Jay since he was living in Jamaica. Even while decorating the tree, Ashley just can’t relinquish control even for something that is supposed to be fun.

Ashley meets with Jay’s sister and goes further into depth about Tindergate. She also reveals that he invited the girl to her house and had inappropriate conversations. His sister is surprised but also thinks that one of the issues is that he doesn’t have anything to do all day. Ashley attempts to cry, although there are no actual tears coming out of her eyes. Ashley no one is buying the victim act anymore.

Nicole (Bradenton, Florida) & Azan (Morocco)

90 Day Fiancé Happily Ever After Season Premier Recap: Into the Lion’s Den

90 Day Fiancé Happily Ever After Season Premier Recap: Into the Lion’s Den

Nicole Nafziger claims she is trying to be healthy and exercise. All I saw was her do one stretch outside. She also colored her hair an awful purple that looks terrible against her pale complexion.  Whew, chile. I don’t understand how someone could be so delusional as an adult.

Nicole goes to her mother’s house to stay until she goes back to Morocco in a few weeks. Her mother questions Azan Tefou’s pattern of always canceling and pushing back their wedding plans. Her stepfather comes into the conversation and dishes out some tough love. He reveals that a guy from Morocco emailed him and told him that Azan has no intentions of marrying Nicole. Sounds about right.

Nicole storms out of the room at the mention of anything that goes against the false narrative she has created in her mind. I don’t even feel sorry for Nicole anymore. I only pity her innocent daughter who is being forced into Nicole’s foolery. Nicole is upset that her family is more supportive of a guy online than her relationship. Ummm… last I checked, she is doing the same. Isn’t she supporting a guy online (Azan) more than her family?

TELL US- DO YOU THINK CHANTEL SHOULD HAVE COME TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC? SHOULD PAOLA HAVE THE BABY IN THE BIRTHING CENTER OR A HOSPITAL? SHOULD NICOLE LISTEN TO THE INFORMATION GIVEN BY AN ANONYMOUS MOROCCAN VIA EMAIL? SHOULD DEBBIE MOVE OUT OF THE HOUSE WITH COLT AND LARISSA?
