Below is what was shown on the fourth episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’s third season.

COREY AND EVELIN

Evelin’s two sisters were very angry and upset about the fact Evelin had already married Corey and lied to them about it.

“Otherwise, he couldn’t stay [in the country],” Evelin explained.

Evelin’s sisters yelled about how Evelin should have just let Corey go back to the United States, and then Evelin explained exactly what happened.

“I don’t think I was ready to marry Corey, but Corey’s visa was expiring and we were in a good time in our relationship with no other way for him to stay here in the country with me. So I agreed to marry him,” Evelin explained.

Footage then flashed back to June 11, 2019, when Evelin and Corey exchanged vows in what appeared to be an office. Evelin and Corey were even wearing casual clothes, and Evelin said it was mostly “a last-minute decision.”

After Evelin and Corey tied the knot, Evelin said “mixed emotions” rushed through her mind and her heart and she started crying.

“I didn’t want Corey to feel bad about it, but I couldn’t stop myself. I cry,” Evelin said.

Evelin told her sisters that she figured if anything went wrong in her relationship with Corey after marrying him, she could just quietly divorce him.

“I told no one about this wedding — no one. And I also told Corey to not tell anyone, as well,” Evelin shared in a confessional.

Evelin apologized to her sisters for not sharing this information with them earlier. The girls wished they could help Evelin through that situation and give her some advice.

Evelin said Corey had pressured her to tell her family but she just wasn’t ready yet. Evelin also revealed that she kept the news under wraps because her family would never approve of her getting a divorce.

“I wasn’t ready for everyone to know because if [the marriage] wasn’t good, in secrecy, we could get divorce,” Evelin admitted.

Corey was therefore already married to Evelin when he started seeing or dating Jenny in Peru.

“I had asked for a break, but yes, we were legally married,” Evelin confirmed.

Evelin’s sisters were therefore shocked Evelin even wanted to get married again, and that Evelin would be willing to wed out of obligation and not love, but Evelin seemed optimistic her romance with Corey could get better with time.

Evelin just asked her sisters not to speak to their parents without her consent. Evelin convinced herself she was “hiding” her marriage from her family rather than lying about it because she felt pretty guilty she had never given them a chance to celebrate with her.

Corey later met with Evelin and her sisters for lunch and he admitted the gathering was a little awkward.

Lesly ordered Corey a special soup called “Caldo de Tronquito,” which supposedly makes men more manly, and it turns out there was bull penis in the dish. Corey confessed the meat was a little “fatty” and disgusting, and the girls cracked up with laughter.

“Do you have, like, a problem with me?” Corey asked.

“I have a lot of problems with you,” Lesly replied with some sass. “I don’t like you. Evelin told me about that girl Jenny and [I’m] not really happy about that.”

Lesly demanded to know the whole history of Corey’s romance with Jenny in Peru, and Corey explained he had a broken heart at the time and was trying to get over Evelin after she had married but dumped him.

Lesley said even if Evelin had asked for space, the couple was married and so Corey never should have gone off with another woman. Corey wished he had Evelin’s sisters’ blessing, but Corey told the cameras that they didn’t even know half of the real story.

“I never, not even once, said, ‘Corey, go and try with every freaking hooker,” Evelin told her husband.

“Why do you think that’s what I was doing? That’s not true,” Corey said.

Corey was really afraid to tell Evelin the truth about his former fling, and Evelin scolded him and told him to eat the bull penis as a punishment for trying to “stick [his d-ck]” into Peruvians.

Evelin’s sisters said they’d never forget what Corey did but they would always be there for Evelin.

“If you hurt her, I am going to kill you, for real,” Lesly told Corey.

STEVEN AND ALINA

Steven was shown taking three flights to Antalya, Turkey, where he’d be reuniting with his love, Alina. The couple had only spent two weeks together in-person, and so Steven pointed out how these 90 days together were going to be crucial in determining whether they could have a marriage that will last forever.

Alina said she was very excited to see Steven but felt a lot of pressure due to the coronavirus. She planned to bring Steven to Russia after marrying Steven in Turkey.

But Alina still didn’t like the idea of living separately from Steven in Turkey. Not only was Alina’s mother worried about her daughter being abandoned, but she also feared Alina could be in danger living by herself.

“That’s unacceptable,” Alina’s mother noted. “He’s caring more about himself than Alina… I am of course filled with infinite anxiety… and I don’t know what to expect from Steven.”

Alina still hadn’t shared with her mother how Steven had asked her if he could go on dates with other women, and Alina still wasn’t sure if Steven was going to reply to her friend Masha’s sneaky messages on social media.

Once at the airport, Steven and Alina had a sweet and joyful reunion. Steven picked up his love and swung her around, and Alina cried in his arms. Steven was thrilled to be able to hold Alina, and he called her “so cute.” Alina also liked her man’s long hair and how he smelled.

“Just being in the same space, it’s overwhelming. It feels amazing and I’m with the person I should be with. It feels like heaven on earth,” Steven gushed.

Steven said he’d sleep on the couch for their first night together and talk about their living arrangement later on. Steven stood by his desire to sleep in separate rooms so he wouldn’t be tempted every night to have sex with her.

Steven said he wanted to be committed to the church and to Alina, and so he intended to honor his religion and its principles. Alina, however, wanted to feel safe and wasn’t sure she could trust Steven, especially if they were living in different places.

Steven agreed to stay with Alina the first night and sleep on the couch, and Alina said the apartment looked nice and cozy — but it was her first time away from home.

It was Steven and Alina’s first night without their mothers and chaperones, and Alina said she needed Steven to protect her and not stay in a hostel where he could communicate with other girls.

Steven explained their faith does not allow a couple to cohabitate before marriage and he didn’t want their arrangement to affect her ability to get baptized. Steven feared he and Alina wouldn’t be able to control themselves, but Alina said that sounded like “an excuse.”

“You must test your faith,” Alina said. “I can lock the door for the night. I don’t believe that there is no way to control yourself.”

But Steven said sleeping in the same bed as Alina would tempt him to “skoodilypoop,” or have sex.

Alina insisted on Steven canceling the hostel, which made him nervous, especially considering he wasn’t a virgin at the time. Steven said it would have been easier for him to remain abstinent had he not enjoyed “penetration” before.

Steven read Russian scripture to Alina before bed, and it wasn’t the first night she had expected to have with Steven. The couple didn’t cuddle, and Alina thought their time together would be cuter.

Alina was disappointed in her first night with Steven in Turkey, so she hoped Day 2 would be better.

Steven then showed Alina the hostel where he planned to stay, but Alina wasn’t going to be convinced.

“If he can’t control himself around me, how can I trust him around other girls in a hostel?” Alina pondered.

Steven told Alina that her insisting on sleeping in the same place made him question whether she really wanted to be baptized in his Mormon faith.

“How can you say things like that?” Alina asked. “It’s very annoying when Steven [asks] me about my commitment to faith. Maybe he’s the one who’s not committed because he can’t control his sexual urges.”

Alina didn’t think proving her commitment to his faith meant having to risk her protection, and so Steven agreed to stay together during their time in Turkey.

“I’m still worried that it’s going to be hard to control ourselves and not have sex. There are a lot of things that could go wrong, especially because I’ve messed up before,” Steven acknowledged in a confessional.

ARIELA AND BINIYAM

Ariela said it was so nice to have a friend around in her ex-husband Leandro, but Biniyam didn’t like it at all and figured his neighbors would be suspicious of Ariela spending time with another man.

Ariela and Leandro went out for coffee alone, for example, but Leandro assured Ariela that he liked Biniyam and had a good time in Ethiopia.

Ariela and Leandro agreed their romantic relationship was over and had vanished, mainly because Leandro didn’t want to have children.

“Originally, Leandro and I both didn’t want kids, but when I turned 25, I had a change of heart,” Ariela shared. “I could see that Leandro wasn’t going to change his mind any time soon, and so part of why we broke up was because that was something we were not going to compromise on.”

Leandro advised Ariela to continue working on her issues with Biniyam, and he was apparently worried about the lack of opportunity Ariela would have in Ethiopia professionally.

“I love Ethiopia. I get frustrated here and there are things I don’t like, but I see so much potential to have a family here and to make a life here. So oddly enough, I feel like at home,’ Ariela insisted.

Leandro wasn’t buying it because Ariela was clearly feeling homesick prior to his arrival.

Ariela also said she loved Biniyam but he needed to work on things in order to become a good husband. For instance, Ariela explained how Biniyam needed to learn how to communicate better and think his actions through.

Ariela didn’t want to have to worry about Biniyam making “stupid mistakes,” but she acknowledged being married isn’t easy and love would hopefully get them through any or all adversity they may face.

Ariela, Biniyam and Leandro went to Biniyam’s sister’s house to celebrate a religious holiday in Ethiopia. Biniyam explained this holiday represents when the disciples realized Jesus was the son of God.

Leandro and Ariela participated in a ritual of jumping over a fire, and Ariela just hoped Biniyam’s family would be respectful towards her ex-husband.

Biniyam’s family didn’t think it was appropriate for Ariela’s ex-husband to be staying with her, and Biniyam’s sister Wish — who appears very protective of Biniyam — accused Ariela and Leandro of being rulebreakers.

Wish mentioned how Ariela had lied to Biniyam about staying in the same house with Leandro in the United States when she was several months pregnant, but Leandro recalled Ariela staying with him for only two days — which didn’t matter to Biniyam’s family.

Wish told the cameras that if Leandro is so great and he and Ari are best friends, then she doesn’t understand why they ever got a divorce.

“Sometimes I feel lonely because you don’t trust me,” Ariela told Biniyam’s sisters. “You think I’m going to take the baby and hurt your brother [like his American ex-wife did]. I’m not his ex-wife, so stop comparing us!… I’m not the same person!”

Biniyam’s ex-wife had taken Biniyam’s first son to the United States, and Biniyam apparently hadn’t heard from them in two years. Biniyam wished his first-born child knew who he was.

Ariela left the gathering early and said she felt too much pressure due to the failure of Biniyam’s prior relationship. Ariela said Biniyam’s family was unintentionally pushing her away and making her loneliness worse.

It then became time for Leandro to leave Ethiopia, and Biniyam said he was happy to see him go. Leandro, however, noted how he’d miss Ariela and her son Aviel, and Ariela got a little emotional when saying goodbye to him.

Biniyam told Ariela that he never wanted to lose her because she and Aviel are God’s gifts to him. Ariela therefore asked Biniyam to open up and express himself more to her rather than shutting down in conversation.

“I love you so much. You are my heart. You are my everything. Just don’t give up. Don’t worry, it will get better,” Biniyam told his wife.

Ariela determined that Biniyam is a better match for her than Leandro, and she anticipated their relationship only getting stronger.

ELLIE AND VICTOR

Ellie was very emotional after arriving in Colombia, but the morning after her trip, she was feeling more positive and optimistic about reuniting with Victor and having a great future with him.

A cold shower woke Ellie up, and she was about to board a boat to Providencia to find Victor.

“Even though I know he’s alive, it’s been really hard not hearing from Victor over the last five days,” Ellie explained. “I cannot imagine what it’s been like for him, surviving this trauma of the hurricane. I have no idea how Victor has been living.”

Ellie wondered if Victor had water, food and shelter, and she questioned if he was a changed man.

“Everything is kind of unknown at this point,” Ellie noted, adding that she’d be “heartbroken” if she couldn’t find Victor on his island.

However, Victor suddenly contacted Ellie on the phone and revealed he was already waiting for her at San Andres airport. Ellie was thrilled Victor was okay and offered to pick him up at the airport.

Ellie seemed overjoyed and said her nightmare had already ended. Ellie felt relieved and celebrated the news, and she was finally thinking that maybe she’s not cursed anymore after suddenly losing her husband, mother, father and good friend.

Ellie knew she and Victor would have to discuss his affair, but for the time being, she just couldn’t wait to see her man again and start a life with him.

“Victor being in San Andres is an amazing light at the end of a very dark tunnel,” Ellie gushed.

The couple then reunited outside of the airport and hugged each other. Victor apparently broke down into tears, and Ellie couldn’t believe that they were in each other’s arms.

“I’m here, I love you,” Victor told Ellie, adding that he didn’t think Ellie was going to travel after the Category 5 hurricane and he felt so much hope and happiness after nearly dying.

Victor apparently waited out the hurricane in his sister’s house and they hovered under the kitchen sink in the kitchen, which saved their lives.

“It’s a moment I’ll never forget in my life. I thought it was the end. To see my island devastated like that… I think it’s going to be a part of me, a part of my life,” Victor explained.

After eight months of being apart due to a pandemic and a hurricane, they finally spent the night together in a hotel. Victor told Ellie that once she saw the island he’s from, her heart would be broken.

KENNY AND ARMANDO

After Kenny’s daughter Cassidy arrived, the family traveled to San Felipe to visit Armando’s family. Kenny and Armando wanted to share the news of their upcoming big wedding and the fact they’d be getting married.

Kenny loved watched Cassidy interact with Armando’s daughter Hannah, and after a long drive, Armando was anxious his father may not be there to even have a conversation.

Armando seemed justified in feeling nervous at first because his father was not present for the gathering. Armando’s mother Virginia revealed that Armando Sr. was at the store, but then Armando Sr. made an appearance and hugged his son!

Armando cried when his father expressed love, and Kenny and Armando Sr. even gave each other a small, polite hug.

Kenny said he was working on his Spanish, and then everyone enjoyed a nice meal together. Armando Sr. was smiling and laughing, and Kenny could tell something was different this time around.

“I’ve had this dream or this fantasy of this great, big, happy blended family, and I see a glimmer of hope that this is possible,” Kenny said in a confessional.

Kenny hadn’t seen his children in a year, and so Cassidy cried at the dinner table. Armando’s mother hadn’t seen her son in quite some time as well, and so she said she could feel Kenny and Cassidy’s pain.

Kenny hoped Armando would mention the wedding on his own and not put it off, but Armando admitted at the end of the gathering he just couldn’t do it. Armando feared a negative reaction, and after a wonderful evening together, he said he wasn’t prepared for that at the moment.

JENNY AND SUMIT

Jenny was frustrated Sumit’s family had taken his passport away because they couldn’t leave the country together as a result. Jenny told Sumit that he needed to take care of himself better, be “on top of stuff,” and find a way to get his passport back.

Sumit learned he could file an application online to get a new passport in about a month since he had lost his previous passport.

Jenny was glad the process would be very easy, and she was happy about the good news — although she said Sumit should have handled this a long time ago.

Sumit continued to promise Jenny that he would marry her, but Jenny was tired of his empty promises and hearing that over and over again.

Jenny told Sumit he had been promising her marriage ever since they met and she wasn’t going to stick around forever.

“Either do it or don’t do it, but do what you want to do. If you want to marry me, then you should marry me. If you don’t, then you should tell me so I can go back to America and not be here anymore!” Jenny said.

“I am living in India for a reason. I don’t have any family here, it’s only you. So if this isn’t really what you want or you’re too afraid, then you should just let me go.”

Jenny had never said anything like this to Sumit before, but she was getting to a place of no return. Jenny insisted she was done playing their little game.

“So, let’s see. As I said, I will marry you,” Sumit replied.

“I’m not going to wait forever. I think I’ve already waited long enough,” Jenny countered.
