Jihoon Lee Is a Scapegoat for Drascilla’s Mad Dash on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
We pick up where we left off in this episode with the Drascilla escape scene. New never before seen footage shows Jihoon Lee turning to yell “stop yelling at me” while chasing down the wild child. Here’s the play by play. Deavan Clegg’s mom Elicia Clegg jukes Jihoon and cuts left into a grassy knoll and grabs Drascilla up by the arm, screaming that she’s going to effing die. And it’s all Jihoon Lee’s fault. Defeated, Jihoon sulks off amidst the chaos to crouch and have a smoke.
Deavan Clegg slinks out with her signature pout. She starts telling Jihoon what a useless and evil person he is for setting her down when she asked to be. Jihoon Lee explains via his handy Tamagotchi translator that he tried to get “the Drascilla.” And the 90 Day Fiance hubby wants to know if she ever stops to think how he feels. Deavan isn’t giving up her victim card anytime soon. Jihoon starts to sob, and his mom comes out of nowhere. Then, Jihoon he asks her to let them figure it out on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
Deavan agrees to give him another chance, and now Jihoon Lee wants to apologize to Elicia. She storms in front of him and puts her hands on her hips. She looks like she’s still in the clothes she wore for her failed Rock Of Love audition in 2007. So, she launches into an over the top speech about scraping Drascilla off the street while crying with no tears. She says if he kills her granddaughter, the 90 Day Fiance mom will kill Jihoon. Chill lady – it wasn’t that deep. Jihoon Lee sums it up best – Elicia: very danger.

Biniyam Shibre Gets Some Bad News About Baptism
Biniyam “Baby” Shibre is trying on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. He takes a break from Ariela Danielle and her mom Nurse Janice to chat with his siblings about his second ride on the daddy train. He points out that Ari is cooler than his ex about certain things. Like playing bongos on his ex’s a*s as a career. They are worried that Ari will do like wife number one and bolt when the going gets tough or the toilet won’t flush. They wish he could just settle down with a nice Ethiopian girl.
90 Day Fiance’s Biniyam wants to take Ariela to his church. He wants the baby to be raised in his culture and his Christian religion. He’s not sure how Ari’s going to feel about all that. She is Jewish and admits she doesn’t believe in hell. Her parents are also of different religions. Her mom is Roman Catholic, and her dad’s Jewish. She’s open to going to Baby’s church. They stop on the way to get her a scarf to cover up with on TOW.
At the church, Biniyam talks with the priest in his native language, so 90 Day Fiance’s Ari has no clue what he said. Maybe a good thing. The priest says that the baby can’t be baptized unless he “suckles from a Christian breast.” So, short of handing Baby Jr. off football style to the nearest lactating Christian, it’s not happening unless Ari gets baptized before giving birth. Next week, we see Ari saying she’s not sure if she can stay. Shouldn’t have cut off those dreadlocks, Baby.

Jenny Slatten Hopes A Pop Of Color Will Save The Day on The Other Way
Jenny Slatten and her 90 Day Fiance love Sumit star in a little Indian version of Fixer Upper. Like if Joanna Gaines was old enough to be Chip Gaine’s grandma, and he was still in an arranged marriage. Sumit returns from Hindu Depot with some white paint and tubes of color, such as marigold. The do-it-yourselfers dive in, and Jenny steals a stir branch from a monkey outside to mix the color. It comes out kind of pinkish red and Jenny’s into it.
Jenny thinks some color will liven up their new home on 90 Day Fiance. And distract them from all the other cracks and chips on the other walls. Not to mention that Sumit’s parents want to talk to them. Jenny has a scary flashback to the last time she saw them. And they shoved him into a car and drove away while he screamed “JENN-NAY, I LOVE JENN-AY” Forrest Gump style. But hey she’ll give it her best shot on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.

90 Day Fiance: Armando Rubio & Kenny Niedermeier Celebrate With Caution After Proposal
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Kenneth Niedermeier and love Armando Rubio are ready to celebrate their engagement in Mexico. Kenny’s daughters are on hand as well as Armando’s good friends Charles and Rita. There’s even a little PDA, and Armando admits he’s still worried about being mistreated or called names because things aren’t so progressive in Mexico. Armando’s friend Rita understands. She says Armando calls on her for support because he’s still worried about his family’s reaction.
90 Day Fiance’s Rita asks about Kenny’s relationship with Armando’s daughter Hannah. He thinks it can only help his family understand better since Hannah loves Kenny. And they will see that they are happy together. Kenny’s a cool dude, but he does push it a little. He thinks Armando should immediately bring up the fact that they are engaged as soon as they meet. But Armando says it “makes him sick to his stomach” with stress. So maybe Ken can back off a wee bit and just let it roll.

Yazan Abo Horira & Brittany Banks Return To His Parents For Another Chance on 90 Day Fiance
Brittany Banks dresses to impress Yazan Abo Horira’s folks in an abaya and hijab. So the only things you see are braces and lashes. Yazan thinks she looks cute, and they head off on a mission to make things right with his parents. If you recall last time, Yazan and Brittany visited, it ended worse than a drunken thanksgiving in America. Yazan’s mom pretty much called Brittany a prostitute after she didn’t want to be called baby or walk down the aisle the next day.
On 90 Day Fiance, Yazan enlisted the help of his savvy uncle Ibrahim who agreed to act as a mediator between the two parties. Yazan’s pop is old school and feels like they should marry right away if they like each other. Yazan explains that Brittany wants to learn more about Islam before she decides to convert. She also wants her dad to be present. But only she knows she needs to buy some damn time to get her divorce finalized.
After Uncle Ibrahim points out some facts, father Yazan starts to cave a little. Uncle wants them to give Brittany time to decide if Islam is for her. In the end, his parents agree to back off a little, and Britt apologizes for any disrespect. It’s all good now, and Brittany owes Uncle I a few shots at the hookah bar for sure. That’s all for now! Be sure to catch 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Mondays at 9 on TLC.
