After The Altar Reunion Highlights

🚨 Warning: Large Love Is Blind spoilers. 🚨

I do not learn about you, however I (falsely) assumed that Love Is Blind: After the Altar can be a Q&A mode reunion particular. I used to be mistaken: It is truly three episodes that comply with the solid round, predominately on the weekend of Natalie’s birthday again in March.

There are two reasonably massive elephants within the room: Each wedded {couples} (Nick and Danielle and Jarrette and Iyanna) from Season 2 have introduced their divorce since After the Altar was filmed. Nonetheless, they’re all very a lot nonetheless collectively within the episodes.

So, for the nice of humanity, I watched After the Altar — and this is what I realized:


Let’s kick issues off with Shayne and Natalie. Shayne describes their post-show relationship as “re-engaged, un-engaged, on-and-off.” Based on Shayne, the final he heard of Natalie was a textual content that stated she “by no means needs to talk to [him] ever once more.” Additionally, and I can not stress this sufficient: Shayne now wears a headscarf.


Shaina is in a relationship with a person named Christos. We all know he’s Greek, dramatic, older than Shaina, and a Christian. One of many first “small speak” questions she requested him was, “Do you imagine in Jesus Christ?” They announce that they’re engaged within the present.


Now, Natalie’s account of issues is the place issues get spicy. She claimed that there have been “flirtatious messages” between Shayne and Shaina — Natalie was with Shayne and Shaina was with Christos — and it is why Natalie broke up with Shayne.


Based on Natalie, the messages included issues like how wild their intercourse life can be — and what would occur in the event that they did find yourself collectively.


“I feel she was in a secret relationship with Shayne,” Natalie says point-blank when Shaina arrives on the ’80s-themed occasion. “In my eyes, she was the opposite girl.”


Each Shaina and Shayne deny this. “There’s by no means been something inappropriate with Shayne,” Shaina asserts, calling Natalie’s account “petty highschool drama.” Bafflingly, she does admit that probably the most inappropriate message she despatched Shayne was calling him “candy child.” Shaina performs this off as whether it is NBD.


“I do not actually perceive what’s so scandalous about me and Shaina DMing one another,” Shayne provides. “In the case of Natalie, if I blinked at Shaina, it might be scandalous.” HMMMM.


Let’s transfer on to Jarrette and Iyanna. The issues are evident from the get-go: Iyanna has already moved out.


The core of the problem is Jarrette’s intensive partying. “I do not need to dwell there as a result of it bothers me to have to take a seat there for hours and hours ready for him to return house,” Iyanna explains. “We’ve to have the identical dialog over and over. … He is immature.”


Jarrette is totally conscious of this, however struggles all through the episodes to concretely work out what to do. Issues appear hopeful by the top, and he even says, “I am dedicated to this lifelong partnership with you.” Alas, we all know this does not work out.


There’s far much less perception into why Nick and Danielle break up. Issues appear fairly uneventful between the 2 all through the episode, and we finish with Danielle saying she supplied Nick sexual favors in trade for attempting new meals (do not get me began on the listing of meals Nick would not eat). Guess we’ll need to go elsewhere for that closure!


Sal is in a relationship with a girl named Jessi, and the present appears hell-bent on exhibiting how “fucking uncomfortable” it’s for Mallory to be round them. Each Jessi and Sal really feel the necessity to clear the air with Mallory, to which she awkwardly replies, “You guys did not need to say something.”


Sal additionally floats the concept of getting engaged to Jessi in a dialog along with his sisters and exhibits them the ring he is purchased. He additionally takes this second to speak about an incident throughout filming with Mallory. “Every week earlier than our marriage ceremony, we had plans…I did not hear from her for 2 hours,” he remembers, describing how he walked house and noticed her in a wierd automotive. “Mallory’s in there with some random man, drunk.”


For some motive, it’s in a POST-CREDITS SCENE that Mallory denies standing Sal up and stated she was with one in all her oldest buddies. Additionally in stated post-credits scene is Shayne difficult Natalie to launch the alleged messages between him and Shaina. I truthfully would not have seen that the scenes have been there, had I not needed to supply images for this submit.


Earlier than we get to Deepti and Kyle’s replace, I need to contact on a few random issues. Firstly, Shake is not there. Shake informed TMZ that the present “begged” him to look, however that he did not “belief” how he was portrayed. He’s not missed.


Secondly, there’s a looooooot of booze in these episodes. The gold goblets are virtually overflowing in a manner that appears extremely stark. I am curious to see if others discover as properly.


Lastly, Deepti and Kyle begin the episodes in a “situationship,” i.e. they see one another a number of occasions per week, name one another their “finest buddy,” are attracted to 1 one other, however are scared to make a transfer lest they wreck their friendship.


Worry not, by the top of the present, they’re in a relationship. “Ultimately, I need him to be my husband,” Deepti provides, ought to we overlook the wedding obsession of Love Is Blind.

There we now have it! Had been there any bits that stunned you? LMK within the feedback!
