90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days‘ Tom Brooks stunned Darcey Silva (and fans) by handing her a key rather than an engagement ring. What’s worse is that it seems he’s encouraging fans to mock the scene. And he’s laughing at himself on recent Insta Stories. With Darcey dropping hints recently that they’re done, that key might not have been to his heart. Check out what Tom’s up to.
90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days – Tom Brooks Popped Box – More Gaslighting?
Watching the recent episode of 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days, you have to wonder if Tom Brooks is a gaslighter, a sadist, or if that’s TLC setting dramatic scenes. Knowing that Darcey Silva expected a ring, it seemed cruel to pull out what looked like a ring box and offer a key. Not only that but a “Harry Potter looking key” as Dean Hakim called it on Pillow Talk.
It almost seemed pointless for Tom Brooks to give Darcey a key to his house in Nottingham, England just as she was packing back off to Connecticut. Was the gesture supposed to be symbolic? Worse yet, did TLC go get that faux ring box for Tom Brooks to use? Or was he gaslighting Darcey as some 90 Day Fiance fans seem to think?

Tom Brooks Laughs With Friend at Awkward Darcey Scenes on Before the 90 Days
Tom Brooks amuses 90 Day Fiance fans often with his Instagram antics. And he’s surprisingly self-deprecating, poking fun at himself – and at Darcey Silva. Recently, he spent time in New Jersey with a friend and shared on his Insta story when they watched Before the 90 Days together. Tom and his pal went in on other cast members, mocking Benjamin Taylor’s native attire and sweaty demeanor.
Tom’s friend also mocked him for his salsa dancing scenes and, to be fair, Tom Brooks laughed at himself. But then there were more clips on his IG from Pillow Talk of the big not-a-ring scene from 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. The Brit and his NJ pal also guffawed over the scene when Darcey asked if they were exclusive. Then when Dean slammed Tom Brooks, his buddy said: “that guy’s got it in for you”.
Fans Divided on Tom Brooks’ Treatment of Darcey Silva
In addition to laughing at the 90 Day Fiance scene with his friend, the Before the 90 Days cast member also re-shared some interesting IG posts from fans. See the one above where a viewer quipped (and Tom reposted) that if they’re still together, she’s going to fly to England and “punch his beautiful face”. That watcher’s clearly Team Tom. But not everyone shares that sentiment.
Recent social chatter from 90 Day Fiance watchers called out Tom for “knowingly antagonizing” Darcey Silva. Then they listed off his dancing salsa with other women. And also saying he would’ve proposed in Gran Canaria and “making her feel worthless” in Albania. Others piled on that social post saying both Tom Brooks and his sister are “gaslighting Darcey” – and said her twin Stacey Silva is too.
Clearly, Tom Brooks’ behavior with Darcey Silva divided fans all season long. Now, we’re just awaiting the Tell All to see the fallout from the key debacle. Handing access to your home to someone that lives 3,316 miles from you is a meaningless gesture, right? And his IG posts laughing at her reaction is pretty telling too. So, if you’re a Darcey-Tom shipper, brace yourself for a rough conclusion to the season.
