Married at First Sight: Second Chances ~ Happily Ever After

The first ever Married at First Sight: Second Chances Finale did not disappoint! It was a joy to watch the end of Vanessa's journey to find love.

As I watched Vanessa spend the week with Shannon, one thing was evident. She tried to give him a fair chance, but her heart was clearly with Andre. Don't get me wrong, they had some cute moments. However, when she didn't want to share a room with Shannon, I knew her feelings for Andre had to be strong. The way Vanessa handled this difficult situation speaks to her integrity and commitment to Andre long-term. Onward to the Finale!

Shannon arrived first and although Vanessa tried to let him down easy, he was not having any of it. Whether intended or not, his response came across as a bit knee-jerky. Was he really cool with the breakup or was he embarrassed? Did he feel like got a fair shake? He wasn't the one for Vanessa, but Shannon is a good man and I know he'll find his woman. 

Before we get to Andre, I want to add a final thought about Myles. Shannon admitted that he and Vanessa had a rocky relationship with many ups and downs. That wasn't the case with Myles. He was falling in love with Vanessa. So while she took a lot of heat for letting Myles go, I'm glad she did it last week before he became even more invested in her. It was the right thing to do.

Finally, let's talk about Andre! As each week progressed, I was more impressed with him. Evidently, Vanessa was too! Andre walked into the finale and with a very heartfelt and sincere proposal and completely swept Vanessa off her feet.

Beyond love, these two compliment one another very well. She challenges him to be a better person and he challenges her to be more comfortable and confident with who she is. The support and respect they have for one another is a great place to build a lifelong foundation of trust. I hope they get their happily ever after!

Married at First Sight: Second Chances ~ Great Angst and Joy

Married at First Sight: Second Chances couldn't have been more shocking this week as David and Vanessa made the cut down to the final two. Fans went through a myriad of feelings, but in the end, let's trust David and Vanessa to know what's in their hearts!

Here's this week's moments of great angst and joy. 

Breaking Into a Cold Sweat

It was clear Melika was not into David as 
much as he was into her, but I never saw 
her breaking up with him this close to the end. Ouch.

A completely devastated David tells Melika he loves 
her in a final plea to get her to move in with him.
I don't know how he can make up for the time that 
was solely focused on Maya and Melika at this point. 

Myles sees that his future is perfectly aligned 
with Vanessa's, but she does not share that vision. His 
broken heart will mend and he will find his soulmate. 

Yikes! Bigelow is not down with sharing his living space with Nola. 

There is more to this than #loofahgate ...

...and there is more to this than #notmyfavoritecolorgate. 

Oh hail to the nah, Andre! You don't impress 
your girl by saying her baby is high maintenance. 

And the lip smacking! Yikes! 

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.

Yes, parting is such sweet sorrow.

Jumping for Joy

There's something about Shannon...

Tara couldn't be more happy... 
and I couldn't be more scared for her. 

David hangs on to the hope of Isabella for dear life. 

Hey, y'all! Rachel DeAlto in the house!!! 

The heat of this kiss is setting off my smoke detector. 

Just look at David and Isabella communicating 
through conflict, admitting mistakes...

...and working out the kinks. Maybe there's hope afterall. 

It really is the little things. Like a surprise puppet show...

...and a romantic night in a tent, complete with chocolate and games. 

Will David open his heart completely to Tara?

Can Shannon step up his game in order to win Vanessa?

Married at First Sight: Second Chances ~ Observations and Questions

In this episode of Married at First Sight: Second Chances on Lifetime, my focus was on body language in addition to words. Here are my observations on what I read between the lines.

Stop, Look and Listen...   

Salem and David never went beyond the friend zone. 

Zach admits something was off with Vanessa from the beginning.

It seems if you truly want to impress 
the "mother", you don't show up late to dinner...

...instead you tell her about all the love you have to give her son. 

You may have had a lack of "present" Andre, but 
you had no lack of "presence". Mama's like hugs. 

Chandra's honest first impression of the guys...Priceless!!!
Myles~What now, wait? Miracle marijuana?
Shannon~You seem like you can talk your way out of a lot of things.
Andre~I noticed your hair. It's a little bit of a shock factor. 

Mama Norton drops some truth bombs on
 David about Melika and her father's disapproval...

And Tara's mama gives a heartfelt plea not to hurt her 
daughter. I'm pretty sure the whole world feels the same way. 

Isabella gives David some serious shade about ignoring her... 

..while staring at Melika throughout the dinner with his mom.

I can definitely see that free thinkers are nurtured here. What
an interesting first meeting with a very eclectic and artsy family.

 I feel bad that Melika's parents didn't show up, but I gotta 
admit, I was a little distracted by the man with the white glasses.

David reveals to Isabella she's the perfect match for him...

...not to be confused with his revelation to Melika that she's the one.

So Many Questions, so Little Time...  

The first person to get the girl is Andre. 

But will the kids get along? 

And will Andre's lip smacking drive Vanessa crazy? 

Shannon's mom was hilarious when she said a
 t-shirt is not gonna "get it". But will Shannon 
step up the romance to get a week with Vanessa?

There is obviously chemistry between Vanessa and Myles, but 
do their moral compasses and lifestyles line up to make it long-term?

David tells Melika he loves her. Does she 
change her mind and say yes to moving in? If not, 
how will the other girls feel about his declaration of love?

Tara is perfect for David in every way, but can 
he shift his heart from Melika to her in such a short time?

Isabella is clearly one of the final two women...

...but does a meeting so soon with Rachel DeAlto,
mean the honeymoon is over?
