As Craig Conover, 35, and Paige DeSorbo, 31, feud over their engagement timeline and Madison LeCroy, 32, teases a potential pregnancy with husband Brett Randle, who appears for the first time, Taylor, 28, is front and center as Austen, 36, admits that “something happened between” the two of them.
“I feel like our souls connect and I’m blown away,” a man tells Taylor as they hug and immediately fall to the ground. But that’s just the beginning of Taylor’s guy problems.
Although Madison is still feuding with Austen, who tells her she’s “a sloppy mess” and “always [has] been,” things between her and Brett appear to be progressing beautifully. In fact, she appears to be throwing up in a bathroom in one scene with her spouse outside of the door.
“Why do I feel so nauseous?” she asks as she visits a doctor at another moment.
“I’m not trying to plan a wedding right now,” Paige tells Craig.
“Why would we date if we’re not going to take the next step?” Craig wonders.
“And then there’s the nude photographs she sent you… we’re not talking about that,” Patricia tells Whitney as Madison’s jaw drops.
Then, as a new love interest for Olivia Flowers, 31, is teased, she and the rest of the cast begin asking questions about Taylor’s behavior.
“Did you f-ck Taylor or not?” Madison asks Austen.
“Madison,” Austen replies.
And Olivia asks Taylor, “Did ya’ll hook up or anything?”
“Never, swear on my life,” Taylor insists.
But Austen seems to be more forthcoming.
In fact, in addition to being seen crying on the floor as he declares, “I just don’t want to make it worse,” he and Taylor are seemingly confronted about their hookup.
“Between the two of y’all, the lies, it’s unf-cking real,” Olivia tells the two of them, later breaking down in tears.
Although the who’s-dating-who is quite hard to follow, Olivia is later seen in Austen’s roll with him in bed as she announces to her ex that Taylor woke up in Shep’s room.
“Taylor’s in Shep’s room,” she states.
And, as Taylor is seen in bed with Shep, who she split from last summer, Austen calls someone and confirms, “Shep and Taylor banged,” as Shep tells Taylor she was a “kissing bandit” the previous night.
