Married At First Sight is now over (thank goodness, honestly), but it went out with one final hurrah of awkwardness, forced socialising and some rubbing of salt into not-so-old wounds.
The crew gathered for a reunion therapy session in which the experts did not hold back.
Right from the start, Pani held nothing back, calling out Lacey for her ridiculously over-the-top behaviour on the show.
She also called her out for making such a scene about Luke trying to get famous when she applied to be a Bravo host. This ended up being when Luke finally got to speak the most we think he ever spoke the whole season as Lacey refused to answer the question and stormed off (for the second time during her session).
Lacey also got shown up when she complained: “All we had was fun. You can’t have a relationship based on fun… I think a relationship is more serious than that” (what, like a job?).
Later, cut to Brett and Angel, who are planning on renewing their vows, moving in together, getting a French bulldog and starting a family.
The secret to their success? “We’ve just laughed and joked the whole way through it and not taken it too seriously.”
The loved-up pair spent the whole episode watching their fellow castmates and looking like the rest of us when our friends start arguing at dinner.
Luke and Lacey aside, it was all pretty dull as they continued to put on a show for the cameras.
There were some moments of uncomfortable realness though.
Like when Vicky and Andrew said they were friends, and Andrew added: “She’s going to fall for me one day, I’m sure.” (Don’t force anything Andrew, we’ve seen your tinder history).
Thank God for Brett and Angel and the fact that somehow, someone managed to find something good in this incredibly dramatic, totally nonsensical mess of a TV show. Everyone else watched them with admiration and a tinge of jealousy as they talked about “hitting the jackpot”, “doing anything to find love and happiness” and “feeling like the luckiest person on earth”.
Forget a second season, can we please just have keeping up with Brett and Angel??
