Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After was all about new beginnings. Several of the couples are embarking on new journeys in some way. The only issue is that in many of those cases they likelihood of it working out is very slim. But I guess we will just have to wait and see how this shit show unfolds.
Elizabeth Potthast Castravet‘s family confronts her about Andrei Castravet‘s actions. Jess extends an invite to Colt Johnson. Skyla impedes Angela Deem‘s wedding. Larissa Dos Santos Lima finds out shocking news. Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa‘s upcoming trip is threatened. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After recap!
Paul (Louisville, Kentucky) & Karine (Brazil)
Karine Staehle and Paul Staehle are leaving Brazil to embark on a new life in America. Paul’s unpredictable nature causes concern for Karine’s family. Who can blame them? Paul is literally a walking human time bomb. After arriving, things get off to a rocky start, almost immediately. When Karine takes the baby out of the car seat to comfort him, Paul freaks out. He starts screaming and jumps out of the car into oncoming traffic. WTF!
This guy is like something out of a psychological thriller. How has poor Karine lasted this long? Obviously she isn’t aware of the laws in the U.S. He could have calmly explained why she had to wait until they stopped to tend to the baby. The hotel was literally a block away, so why Paul jumped from the vehicle is beyond me. He just had to run from the car screaming like a banshee.

Upon arriving at the hotel, Karine is surprised they aren’t staying with Paul’s family. After leaving her close knit family, she expected to have more support. After witnessing the drama in the car, she should understand why that isn’t possible. The way he spoke to his mother is crazy. I could imagine Paul coming in with all of his bags and mosquito nets and completely taking over his parent’s home. By the time he was done, that house would look like a scene out of hoarders.
Colt (Las Vegas, Nevada) & his mom Debbie ex-wife Larissa (Brazil)
After arguing the night before, Colt and Jess decide to compromise and be more understanding of their differences. Jess then invites Colt to come with her to visit her family in Brazil. Larissa never wanted him to interact with his family so he is elated. I’m not sure if this is genuine, or just a way to advance things quickly. In a cringy scene we are forced to watch as these two dance in public. The last thing I needed to see is Colt shaking his ass for the camera. I need a wine refill immediately!
Jess meets with friends who are concerned about her relationship with Colt. After meeting him, they believe he is controlling. They also think he may be cheating. He frequently talks to another woman who he claims to have met at the donut shop gym. Although Jess doesn’t like Colt’s controlling ways, she still wants to pursue something with him. Hmm… could her need for a green card have something to do with that?

Larissa is depressed she doesn’t have a man to support her. But she is excited to go on a blind date to meet a new mystery man who looks like a Donald Trump Jr. doppelganger. When Larissa arrives, she meets a well-dressed man bearing gifts. As soon as they sit down, he begins to interview her. He finds out very quickly that she has been arrested several times and has no interest in philanthropy or anything else not superficial. Way to win him over Larissa! This guy is clearly missed the memo that she is not a conversationalist. I would be surprised if there is a second date, but you never know. Something seemed a little off about him anyway.
Larissa is putting all of her effort getting ready for her future man with beauty regiments. She decides to try a procedure that involves a machine contouring her abdominal muscles. The scene is like soft porn with Larissa moaning the entire time. She reveals to the attendant that she is jealous Colt is in a new relationship. She is even considering contacting Jess to warn her about Colt. It sounds like she is just looking for an excuse to start some drama. This should definitely be entertaining if nothing else.
Elizabeth (Tampa, FL) & Andrei (Moldova)
Andrei calls his parents to inform them of his plans to finally have a traditional Moldovan wedding. He and his parents begin excitedly making preparations like she isn’t even in the room. Andrei wants to stay with his parents for three weeks. Elizabeth was hoping to stay with her family to help make them more comfortable. Elizabeth becomes irritated when she feels like her husband is once again making decisions without her. She may want to get used to it, it seems like he plans on making most of the decisions regardless.
Elizabeth meets with family to find a wedding dress for her upcoming nuptials. Things a bit tense when her family confronts her about missing out on the wedding due to last minute notice. Although she finds dress of her dreams, the occasion is dampened by the thought of some of people not being in attendance. But Elizabeth has decided to sacrifice her personal feelings for Andrei. He didn’t have anyone in his family for their first wedding.
Tania (Colchester, Connecticut) and Syngin (South Africa)
Syngin Colchester is interviewing for his first job since arriving in the U.S. Despite his experience in South Africa, he is like a fish out of water in an Irish pub. Although he gave a compelling story about why he needs the job, he doesn’t receive an immediate answer. Tania is concerned that bartending could put her husband at risk for abusing alcohol. I am really curious about his drinking habits. Tania seems like she drinks just as much as him.
Tania has a follow up doctor’s appointment for the injury to her foot. She finds out that she has a long road to recovery before she can consider going back to work. Even after intense rehab, she may never be able to stand on her feet for the long periods of time that are required for her bartending job.

This creates an intense amount of pressure for Syngin to find a job and become the sole breadwinner. Tania not being able to work for an extended period of time is only making matters worse. When Syngin learns that his wife could also have arthritis he becomes extremely irritated. Is it just me or do these two seem to make everything into an argument?
Angela (Hazlehurst, Georgia) and Michael (Nigeria)
Angela meets with her lawyer to discuss creating a will. After her doctor’s appointment, she is concerned that if something happens to her, Michael Ilesanmi could inherit everything. She wants to ensure both Michael and her grandchildren will be protected. She also learns that her case has been transferred from Nigeria to the U.S. Her lawyer recommends that she hold off on her trip for another month.

Angela tries to convince her daughter, Skyla to be a witness for her wedding, to no avail. In Nigeria, there need to be another American witness in order for them to get married. Angela video calls Michael for back up, as if Skyla will listen to him. Skyla doesn’t support the marriage, so she isn’t budging on her decision. Looks like Angela is going to have to sucker someone else to go with her.
Kalani (Orange County, CA) and Asuelu (Samoa)
When Asuelu calls his sister, he finds out there is measles outbreak in Samoa that could affect his trip. When he informs Kalani, naturally she is concerned about the well being of her children. Only one of their children has been vaccinated for measles because of his age. The doctor is willing to vaccinate their youngest son early, but she advises them to wait to travel, if possible.
Asuelu doesn’t seem to understand the issue and thinks they should stay at a hotel to be safe. Kalani doesn’t want to take any unnecessary risks with her family. I know Asuelu is homesick, but will it kill him to wait a few more months to see his family.
