90 Day Fiance: The Other Way came in like a wrecking ball as Jenny Slatten walked out on sobbing Sumit. She takes her ceramic cows and says sayonara. Plus, Corey Rathgeber proposes to Evelin Villegas on the jankiest balloon ride ever. Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee make it official at the South Korean community center. And, Tiffany Franco does her hair toss and checks her nails while her son wails saying bye to Ronald Smith. Are you ready for this? Here we go with the recap of the TLC episode Never Let Me Go.
Sumit and Jenny Slatten – Cry Me A River on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
Jenny Slatten packs up to leave her Saran wrap love nest in India. She’s still in shock over the fact that a guy she met while catfishing her isn’t completely honest. He has a wife of almost two years and a bunch of angry in-laws. Wait till they see the clip of him cutting Jenny Slatten’s toenails. Sumit convinced his brother to drop him for an hour to say goodbye to Jenny. The two hug and cry and Jenny begs him to fix this. She tells Sumit that broken hearts kill people.
And sometimes so do angry father-in-laws. On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, it’s time for Jenny Slatten to hit the road. They cry some more and Sumit suffers even more humiliation by having to hold the snot rocket that was seen around the world while saying goodbye. He walks her to the cab. Jenny forgives him and warns him not to let anyone hurt him. Like any good mama, Jenny Slatten pats him on the head and reminds him to wash the boogers off his hands. And off she goes.
Poor Sumit and Jenny. I feel like they TRULY love one another. Sumit broke my HEART when he said he felt like his best days are behind him. #90DayFiance #90dayfiancetheotherway pic.twitter.com/rFplBfKnum

Deavan Clegg & Jihoon Lee’s Traditional Korean Wedding
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’s Deavan Clegg and new hubby Jihoon Lee are married on paper. But Jihoon’s family wants them to do a traditional South Korean wedding in the traditional dress, the hanbok. The ceremony’s held at what looks like a community center. Deavan’s underwhelmed. She meets Jihoon’s aunts who put her in the attire. She gets rave reviews all around as it’s understandably hard to rock this look. Deavan admits she has no idea what’s going on or what they are all saying.
Jihoon dances around in his traditional garb and everyone laughs. Deavan now wears what appears to be an Entenmann’s donut on her head with candy glued on it. She is still low-key complaining that she fears they are talking sh*t in Korean about her. Meanwhile the opposite is true. Jihoon’s aunts say it’s the first time that they will have an American in the family. And that Deavan is pretty and looks Korean on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.
So you moved to South Korea to marry your fiance, but you are salty because you are having a traditional Korean wedding? Deavan complains a lot… about everything. ??♀️#90DayFiance #90DayFianceTheOtherWay#90DayTheOtherWay pic.twitter.com/H0SmbOkGon

You May Now Give The Bride a Piggy Back Ride
After the ceremony is complete, dates and chestnuts are thrown into a cloth that Jihoon and Deavan hold outstretched. It will decide the amount of babies they will have. Deavan encourages him not to catch them as she doesn’t want any more now. Jihoon points out now’s not the time to talk about it. But they catch seven. Next, they chew a date together to see who gets the seed. That person has power. While Jihoon gets the seed, he admits Deavan’s driving things.
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Deavan finally relaxes and starts to enjoy the ceremony. At the end, Jihoon must give her a piggy back ride. If he walks tall, they will have a big house. He does a pretty good job before they tumble. Jihoon suggests since it’s the first official wedding night, they should make a baby. Deavan says no and Jihoon offers to wear a condom. Congratulations to the Lees on their wedding.

Corey Rathgeber Gets Evelin Villegas’ Father to Bless Them on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
Corey Rathgeber is back in Ecuador after the passing of his father. He’s heading to see Evelin Villegas’ dad with a skip in his step. With only three weeks left on his visa, Corey’s clock is ticking. He’s ready to propose. He finds Evelin’s pops digging up pipe and offers to help. While shoveling, he attempts to ask for Evelin’s hand in marriage in Spanish. He still isn’t very good at it so it comes off sounding like he’s proposing to her father. To be fair, they look-alike so it’s an honest mistake.
Corey finally gets it out with the help of a trusty translator app. No translation is needed for Evelin’s padre as he is clearly happy that someone wants to marry Evelin. But he admits that while he says yes, Evelin will probably say no. The rosy-cheeked Corey moves on to plan B – a surprise proposal. 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way say what’ll be a surprise is if she actually says yes to the dress.

Up, Up and Away in My Sketchy Ecuadorian Balloon
Corey blindfolds Evelin on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way with more fabric than the dress she’s wearing. They stop in the middle of a dirt road and Corey reveals he rented a hot air wonky balloon. It looks like three dudes hitching the parachute from my elementary school gym class to a basket. Evelin’s scared to get in the contraption. She admits things are sketchy in Ecuador. And if it falls, they die. Simple as that. While backfiring flames burn inches above their heads, Corey points to a sign too far away for Evelin to see.
The two make it safely to the ground and nobody lost their eyebrows in the process. Corey makes Evelin put back the endless blindfold again. Then, he walks her to the sign on the ground that asks her to marry him. She’s underwhelmed as Corey gets on one knee and proposes. Evelin finally says yes. But tells producers that she’s in no hurry to actually get married. Corey ends the night with dinner and fireworks. But we all know he’ll be back on US soil in three weeks and this 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way pair hits the skids.

Tiffany Franco & Daniel Head Home – Leave Ronald on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
After finding out that she might have to give birth on a floor in the public hospital in South Africa, Tiffany Franco needed an exit strategy. She took son Daniel Franco to a run down playground (where she scattered extra broken glass for effect) to scare him into moving back to the US. This poor kid was dragged across the world, bonded with his step father, tried the local cuisine and was just getting the hang of it. Now Miss L’Oreal wants the hell outta dodge.
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Tiffany broke the news to the hapless Ronald on the mountain top where he proposed. But not without reminding him several times that he’s an addict. And that she has suffered from his actions. So, pretty much he owes her. She calls Craig, the feel good dude at the halfway house, to come talk to them. And then shoos Ronald out so he can stew in his failures at a person while she throws around recovery speak in hushed tones.
In the very last scene, Tiffany and Daniel say farewell to Ronald at the airport. While Ronald wipes back tears, Daniel clings to him and makes the gut wrenching sounds of a wounded animal. Tiffany stares into the distance, makeup on point and wonders what movie is on the plane. They finally part but not before Ronald crawls under a turnstile for one last goodbye. And tells Daniel that it’s only temp-rary my boy… Next up – the Tell All. 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way is on Monday nights at 9PM on TLC.
