90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days Episode Recap: Great Expectations

You would think anyone who is cast on 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days has seen this show in the past. If that is true, I am having a hard time understanding how they keep finding such naive and desperate people to participate. Have these people learned nothing!  There are some who have relationship issues that may have a chance. There are others that are basically walking around with rose-colored glasses on during an apocalypse.

Darcey Silva tries to decode mixed messages from Tom Brooks.  Yolanda has a confusing conversation with Williams. Geoffrey begins his journey to Russia. Avery seeks her parent’s approval and Lisa‘s friends are concerned for her safety. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance recap!

Darcey, 45(Connecticut) & Tom, 39 (England)

Their backkkkkkkkkk! Viewers should already be familiar with Darcey, who has already been around the 90 Day Fiance block a couple of times.  First, she appeared on the show with her younger ex, Jesse Meesterand now with Tom.

Both Tom and Darcey previously appeared on season 3 of Before the 90 Days. The crazy couple faced many ups and downs throughout their relationship and ended the season on uncertain terms. Darcey is famous for her meltdowns and being thirsty to get married. Now, she is back for another shot at love.

I see the only thing that has changed since we last saw Darcey is more lip fillers and self- tanner.  Tom is still basically avoiding her and she still wants attention. Even her own twin sister, Stacey, wishes she would just move on.

Tom video calls Darcey after not speaking to her for quite some time. He informs her he will be in New York for a meeting and would like to see her. Darcey is fearful he may be coming to break up with her in person. When Tom attempts to rush off the call, Darcey tells him she isn’t sure if she will be available. Girl… we all know you will be at that meeting with bells on to see Tom.

Lisa, 52 (York, Pa.) & Usman “SojaBoy,” 30 (Nigeria)

90 Day Fiancé Before The 90 Days Season Premiere Recap: Great Expectations

Lisa is headed to Nigeria in just a few days to finally see her man, Usman. It’s obvious when they video call him she is still extremely insecure about his career and his fans. Lisa demands that when she arrives that he completely focus on her throughout her trip. Good luck with that! She is also nervous that Usman’s mother may not give her blessing for them to be married.

Lisa meets with friends to discuss her upcoming trip to Nigeria. The first question is why an established entertainer would want to leave that behind too come to America. During the conversation, she shares her disappointment that a Nigerian woman was his leading lady in the song that was supposedly written for her. Insert side-eye emoji. Chile, please! It was a love song that could be about anybody. Lisa insists that she and Usman are soul mates and won’t listen to anything her friends say that contradicts that claim.

Lisa’s friends stop by to bring her some condoms before her trip. She makes it clear that she will not be using them. SMH! On the way to the airport, her friends inquire whether Usman and his male roommates could be scam artists aka “yahoo boys”. Does this woman have no fear? I hope she is staying at a hotel.  There is no way in hell I would stay anywhere with several men I don’t know.

Ed, 54 (San Diego) & Rosemarie, 23 (Philippines)

90 Day Fiancé Before The 90 Days Season Premiere Recap: Great Expectations

Ed is planning to go to the Philippines in a few days. He is totally shocked when he learns from a coworker the living conditions he will probably endure during his trip. But that isn’t the biggest shocker, Rose’s sister reached out to him asking for money.  He fears that his new love may be involved and they could be attempting to take advantage of him. Umm…. Duh!

Why would Rose’s sister think it’s appropriate to ask a man her sister has only talked to for 3 months for money? Ed, if this is happening after a few months, you will be sending money every week to the entire family very soon.  The mayo he puts on his hair must be going to his brain he doesn’t see the set up here.

Ed’s friend comes to visit him as he packs for his trip to the Philippines. He literally has packed everything under the sun, including an engagement ring. He is extremely nervous about finally meeting Rose in person. He has been hiding not only his height, but the fact that he doesn’t want any more kids. Apparently, Rose, a single mother of a son wants another child when they get married.

Ed calls his daughter before he gets on the plane for his big trip. It broke my heart seeing him tearfully creating a video message for his daughter. She calls him back to say “safe travels”, which is their custom before any trip. Hopefully, these two will be able to work things out when he returns to the states. I understand Ed’s desire to be in a relationship. He hasn’t been with a woman in 28 years! I can also understand how his daughter is disgusted by his relationship with a much younger woman in another country. The whole thing gives me creep vibes.

Avery, 32 (Seattle) & Ash, 38 (Australia)

 90 Day Fiancé Before The 90 Days Season Premiere Recap: Great Expectations

Avery and Ash have a conversation about their future. She has doubts about whether he is truly genuine or just tells her what she wants to hear. She will definitely find out when she travels to Australia to meet Ash and his son in person. I have a feeling things aren’t going to go as planned on this trip. Avery, there is a reason your intuition is telling you not to trust him. I guess we will just have to wait and see if her senses are correct.

Avery confesses to her family she is in a long-distance relationship with a man she never met. Everything was going well until she reveals her plan to go to Australia for 2 weeks to meet Ash. Naturally, they are concerned for her safety as a woman traveling alone to another country to see someone who is virtually a stranger.

Yolanda, 51 (Las Vegas, NV) & Williams, 40 (England)

90 Day Fiancé Before The 90 Days Season Premiere Recap: Great Expectations

Yolanda discovers when talking with her daughter that she isn’t sure which airport she should fly into when she visits her boyfriend, Williams. When she calls to get the name of the airport, he rushes off the phone. He then sends confusing texts that don’t give a real location or airport. Girl, are you serious!? This guy has all the signs of a catfish. He doesn’t even seem to want to speak with you on the phone, let alone see you in person.

Okay, Yolanda, girl, you can’t be this naive. This woman wants love so desperately; she is willing to ignore HUGE red flags. What is sad is she wants to bring her daughter along on this wild goose chase throwing caution and common sense to the wind. Even her daughter is alarmed by the call she witnessed and the fact Williams couldn’t give them basic information.

Geoffrey, 41 (Knoxville, Tenn.) & Varya, 30 (Russia)

90 Day Fiancé Before The 90 Days Season Premiere Recap: Great Expectations

Varya meets with her girlfriends who all think she is cray for meeting Geoffrey alone for the first time. They manage to convince her to at least not to stay in the hotel with a man she barely knows.

Little does she know there is a lot more to Geoffrey than she’s heard so far. He has neglected mention his criminal record and time in prison. When he arrives in Moscow, the two share a huge hug and tears of joy. But things get awkward quickly when they attempt to make small talk. The vibe is definitely off with these two. I’m not sure if Geoffrey is just nervous about his secrets or doesn’t have any game.
