90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days Recap: King of Wishful Thinking

Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days was action packed with DRAMA.  This episode had more break ups, than I could count. I don’t know how many times people can end things in such a short period of time, before someone decide it’s for the best.  For one couple, desperation and delusion may have actually paid off.  Grab your petty juice and let’s talk about all of the messy details!

Avery Warner finally meets Ash Naeck‘s ex. Ed Brown and Rose discuss their relationship. Erika Owens opens up to Stephanie Matto about her past. David listens to his heart. Geoffrey Paschel and Varya Malina discuss their future. Let’s get straight into the recap!

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

After proposing to Varya, Geoffrey gets the shock of his life when she tells him she isn’t ready. I can honestly say that I didn’t see this coming. I thought for sure she would jump at the chance to leave Russia to come to America. Maybe she needs some extra time to do a little more investigating, before going into the lion’s den. That’s not a bad idea, considering Geoffrey yelled at her friends and revealed his criminal past, all in the same trip.

Geoffrey is still hurt Varya decided not to accept his marriage proposal.  Things between the two are definitely awkward as they head to the airport. Varya seems to want to continue their relationship, while he alludes to possibly being done. Geoffrey sits Varya down and tells her he is going home to live his own life. He coldly says “goodbye and good luck.” Varya doesn’t want him to leave this way. At the last minute, she runs back to Geoffrey, but he is completely over it. Personally, I think Varya made the best choice of her life, by saying no to this guy considering his record.

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

It’s been a week and Ash is pretending to leave the apartment after having a tantrum. LOL!  After telling Avery she is heartless, he demands she tell him she loves him and ask him to stay. Obviously he hasn’t been paying attention; Avery isn’t easily manipulated like his lovesick clients. After arguing for two days, Ash is still taking Avery to meet his son and ex-wife, Sian.  The tension in the car is so thick you can cut it with a knife.  She is still upset about their conversation and informs Ash she is staying in a separate hotel room. He is confused why she is pushing him away, after he has so generously allowed her to meet his son. SMH… I wish these two would just break up already.

After spending the night alone, Avery arrives at Sian’s house for the big meeting. Things get very interesting when Avery and Sian decide to go to a wine bar to speak alone. Avery is shocked to find out that although Sian and Ash have been separated for many years, they only divorced a year ago. She also finds out that Sian doesn’t think he should leave his son to go to America.  None of these things are huge revelations, but Avery is already adding them to notepad of Ash’s lies. Nothing good is going to come out of this meeting, so Ash better be ready.

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

Rose is done! She is tired of Ed mistreating her and she no longer wants to continue with their relationship. Is it bad that I think that it is hilarious Rose is breaking up with him after she has enjoyed some time away on vacation? I don’t know why he thought just because he was dating a foreign woman that she didn’t have feelings. Ed has embarrassed Rose on national TV on several occasions. But I don’t think this is the last we will see of Rose.



Stephanie, 29 (New York) & Erika, 24 (Australia)

90 Day Fiancé Before The 90 Days Recap: King of Wishful Thinking

When Stephanie attempts to come out to her mother on video call, she decides against it at the last minute. In a post interview she reveals she feels like her mother deserves more than that. It’s obvious Erika is disappointed that she is still only just a friend in Stephanie’s mother mind.

Stephanie has returned for another fun night with Erika’s friends. Insert side eye emoji here.  I have to give her respect, after the last disaster, I wouldn’t have gone back. For some reason, they decide to play a game that will disclose secrets and embarrassing details of your life. S Surprisingly, the game ends up being a great ice breaker and the negative energy dissipates. At the end of the night, Stephanie feels like one of the crew.

With only a few days left in Stephanie’s trip, Erika reiterates that’s she doesn’t want to be kept a secret. Stephanie is still nervous about telling her mother the truth. She feels like revealing her sexuality may ruin their relationship.  Erika admits she was once in a relationship where she was kept a secret, so she doesn’t want that to happen again. Instead of them sharing a moment, Stephanie flips out on Erika about not telling her everything about her past. WTH… Stephanie may actually be crazy. She has some deep seeded emotional and insecurity issues.  I am still confused why this confession was cause to scream, storm out and then break up. I understand Stephanie may be nervous to tell her mother the truth, but she is being absolutely ridiculous. Is anyone else over all of the screaming and crying between these two?

David, 60 (Nevada) & Lana, 27 (Ukraine)

90 Day Fiancé Before The 90 Days Recap: King of Wishful Thinking

Okay… David is absolutely NUTS! After being stood up four times by Lana, he talks to her once online and is already flying back out to meet her. Someone please get this fool the help he needs. David arrives in Ukraine looking like the creepy senior version of Matrix with his ‘I mean business’ leather trench. When he arrives at the hotel, even the hotel clerk knows he is being scammed. When he gets to his room, he receives a message from Lana that she can’t meet him until Monday because of her nephew’s soccer games. Ummm… it’s only Friday and she already has another excuse. Honestly, I don’t feel bad for David anymore. He is obviously a glutton for punishment.

David isn’t going to allow one setback to halt his entire trip. He decides to meet with the private investigator and a translator. Didn’t this man already tell him that Lana was a scammer? What more is left to discuss? The PI tells David what everyone is thinking, why would she prioritize a game over her love of 7 years? Of course, David becomes defensive and tells the PI he is speculating and being negative.  Clearly David just wants someone to hand him an address to stalk find Lana. When that doesn’t happen he fires him, as if he cares.

David primps in the finest serial killer fashion for his meeting with Lana. He stands nervously by the monument they have agreed to meet. Much to my shock, the woman from the pictures actually shows up!!!!!  Okay, my mind is blown. We will have to wait until to next week to find out exactly what happens with this unexpected turn of events. The producers had to convince this woman to just meet David at least once so he will leave her alone.  There is no way this happened organically after she stood him up four times.
