“Married At First Sight: Second Chances” episode 5 began with Jordan exiting the show after David Norton made the dreaded nighttime breakup-visit. Jordan had proved problematic after saying things about one of David’s favorites on the show, Melika. Just when you thought that the absence of Maya would calm the waters, you learned that it didn’t.
David’s playing a game of Whack-A-Mole, trying to stamp out dissatisfaction and jealousy. With Jordan and Maya gone, he had to deal with Callie and Melika. At the group date, he got cozy with Melika and wanted to kiss her. That went awry when the other ladies spotted them and broke it up, making a joke out of it.
At this point on “Married At First Sight: Second Chances”, nothing is a joke. This is damn serious business and Melika struck back. After David pulled Callie aside to clear the air about her name-calling he was satisfied that she apologized to the others. He was ready to start fresh. He asked her out and they went horseback riding. It went very well, but no good goes unpunished on this show.
Melika went bonkers about David mending fences with Callie and being with her on an alone-date. She doesn’t believe Callie’s apology and began to stir it up with the other women. Then she pulled something straight out of the Maya handbook. She pouted throughout the next group date at a farm, so much so that David insisted on speaking with her about it.
She went on and on about how he hurt her, making her want to step back from him and the process. How could he be with Callie after what Melika told him about her? David feared losing Melika, as he had Maya. Both Melika and Maya used the same tactic. They threatened to blow up their time on the show if they didn’t get their way.
As the pastor told us, David is being led astray by his physical attraction to some of the women, trying to make them happy at the cost of the other women still in the process. Speaking of other women, besides Melika, David’s other favorite is Isabella. He asked her on a second alone-date and things changed radically.
She’s only 23 and has ambitions that she expects to take her traveling around the world. She flat-out told David that she didn’t envision herself settling down to have kids until she approached the age of 30. David about fainted when he heard that, and you have to think she’s the next one to get the knock on her door. We left David in the car ready to breakup with the next person, and here’s betting it’s Isabella.
That means that Melika is the only one he’s really crazy about at this juncture. Since she’s pulling a Maya and manipulating him, that can’t be good. Do you agree?
