After having sex with his new girlfriend, Jess things become awkward. Just when I thought she was recovering from temporary insanity, she reveals she is upset that Colt is hiding their relationship. After some prodding, Colt promises to talk to his mother, Debbie about his new boo. These two are a train wreck waiting to happen. While out on a date, Colt asks what Jess likes about him. She just giggles and says “you like sex.” Girl, you have to get out more. If liking sex is your only requirement for a relationship, Colt should do. But I have a suspicion that things may change once she gets her green card.

She is hesitant to leave the only home she has ever known behind for a new life in America.  She is also concerned about whether Paul will be able to secure employment to support her and their son, Pierre.

Elizabeth tries again to explain to Andrei why her family is upset about his last-minute wedding announcement. Part of her believes that he doesn’t want her family to come and that is why he didn’t give them any time to plan. He doesn’t like her family, so it’s not far fetched. He points out that his family wasn’t in attendance for their first wedding. After not being given a choice, Elizabeth agrees to go along with his plan.

Elizabeth meets with her sisters at the pool to convince them to get on board with the wedding. She is instantly met with resistance and claims that the country is dangerous. When she reveals that Andrei wants their father to pay for the wedding, no one is surprised.
