Married At First Sight's Ryan Takes A Break From Being Wrong About Jackie's 'Gypsy Soul' To Be Wrong About Keeping His Old Apartment

We give you the lowdown on 'Great Expectations' in the latest Bride & Doom podcast!

Don't be fooled by the episode title: "Great Expectations" has nothing to do with any of the couples having children (thank god), but is just another essentially meaningless phrase that might refer to a couple of inconclusive conversations about what the newlyweds want out of marriage. Jon impresses Molly's family with his cheerful willingness to pitch in on a couple of projects at Molly's mother's house, and you know Molly relishes the chance, as Jon is painting walls, to gaze at that beautiful back. Ryan takes Jackie to dinner at his parents' house to brag about what an excellent example they've set for him with their marriage (elder Buckleys: call your lawyer) before finding new bullshit to torture Jackie with: this time, it's his refusal to give up his old apartment, at her request, in a flurry of insistence that the reason he wants to keep it definitely is not so that he has a place he can go to escape her other than every bar in Boston. Jephte and Shawniece mildly clash over his concerns about food hygiene with regard to her cooking, but by the end of the episode it seems as though exposure to Jackie's unhappiness and Ryan's assholery has convinced them that Shawniece and Jephte themselves are actually doing pretty great by comparison.
