“MAFS” 2024 Recap: A “Pissed Off” Timothy Gets Grilled By Lucinda’s Dad


Ready to dive into the latest “MAFS” episode? We’re about to unpack all the juicy details from the fallout of that intense commitment ceremony. Last night’s episode had us on the edge of our seats as couples faced the music for their actions, leading to some seriously awkward moments that we’re still trying to process.

Now, let’s talk about Jack. Oh boy, did he stir up some trouble with his “muzzle” comment towards Lauren. The experts didn’t let him off easy during the post-ceremony debrief, and it left Tori questioning everything about their relationship. But hey, it seems like they’re trying to bounce back tonight, though their attempts to prove their so-called love for each other might just be a tad over the top. And then we have Lucinda and Timothy. We’ll get to them in a moment.

Let’s unpack this “MAFS” recap for episode 18.

Jack Faces Tori’s Protective Best Friend, Lea


Tori and Jack are determined to salvage their relationship following the disastrous commitment ceremony and dinner party. Their latest attempt at proving their commitment? Matching tattoos. Now, that’s what you call a bold move! But before they can even show off their fresh ink, Tori’s best friend, Lea, makes an entrance. And let me tell you, she’s armed with some serious doubts about Jack. Did anyone else catch her accidentally calling him Jacob? Hilarious.

Lea doesn’t hold back, dropping bombshells left and right about Jack’s behaviour towards other women in the experiment. Yikes!

She vividly recalls their wedding day, where she labels Jack as a “f***k boy” and senses he’s “hiding something”. Then there’s that infamous “muzzle” comment from the dinner party, which Lea describes as “absolutely disgusting”. Jack’s excuse? He’s just “defending his territory”. Gross, right? And to make matters worse, he shows no remorse for his actions, a complete 180 from his attitude at the commitment ceremony.

Not to mention, she points out the glaring absence of intimacy in Tori and Jack’s relationship. It’s like watching a trainwreck in slow motion as its once-solid foundation crumbles before our eyes.

“I was shocked to hear they haven’t been intimate,” Lea shares with the cameras. “…Her whole demeanour has shifted completely. This is something that’s very foreign for me to observe in Tori because she’s always been in control, always on top of things.”

Lea leaves their apartment with lingering concerns, but she’s putting her trust in Tori’s assurances. Will time prove her right? Only time will tell!

The Undoing of Lucinda and Timothy

Lucinda and Timothy are hitting a rough patch. Following a tense couch session with the experts, they wake up in separate apartments. The experts didn’t mince words about their slow-burn style, leaving Timothy feeling blindsided when Lucinda agreed with them. And to add fuel to the fire, they’re about to face their families and friends on shaky ground.

When they finally come face to face after the blowout, it’s clear there’s still tension. A simple car discussion quickly spirals into another heated argument, spilling over into their family gathering. It’s like witnessing a train wreck in slow motion as they struggle to find common ground.

“I felt really good going into [the commitment ceremony] and then you just started piling it on, there was no team,” Timothy expresses his frustration.

Despite Lucinda’s attempts to smooth things over with an apology, Timothy isn’t ready to let bygones be bygones.

As they address their rough week with their families, Lucinda delves into the depths of their relationship issues, including the lack of sexual chemistry and her feeling uncelebrated. Timothy blames the commitment ceremony “blindside” for unravelling their relationship.

Lucinda’s Dad Grills Timothy


But amidst the chaos, a glimmer of hope emerges. Timothy finds himself facing off with Lucinda’s dad, who doesn’t hold back in his assessment. He tells Timothy he lacks respect for his daughter and needs to ease up on his temper.

“Wow, you’re quite the brick, aren’t you” he quips. “…From my point of view, you need to not get your tits in a tangle and maybe pull your finger out.”

Surprisingly, Timothy takes the advice in stride and finds humour in the situation. I mean, Lucinda’s dad literally tells Timothy to have a one-night stand with his daughter. With some sage guidance from Lucinda’s dad, he begins to see things in a new light. Perhaps this could be the turning point they’ve been searching for. With fingers crossed, we’re rooting for Lucinda and Timothy to weather the storm and come out stronger on the other side.
