Throughout the season all these couples were fighting different battles. Hania & Ash were at first struggling with coming to a compromise of having an open relationship. While Hania came in saying he really wants an open relationship, Ash repeatedly stated she already deals with trust issues when it comes to him. She felt she was already so devalued in the relationship and he struggles with the simplest things like introducing her as his girlfriend instead of his friend, so how can they be strong enough to have an open relationship? Hania brought Ash to the island, to be open to the idea and what it would be like, but that truly backfired. Instead, the island taught Ash that she was right in her thoughts of Hania being untrustworthy, having infidelity and commitment issues, and not valuing her. She was repeatedly shown clips of him either flirting, doing raunchy things with other girls, or bragging about the things she doesn’t know he has done with other girls in their relationship in the past. In the meantime, Hania figured out in his journey that he loves Ash and does not want an open relationship He also realized he never valued her enough.

Unfortunately for him, Ash moved on to someone else on the island, Taylor.

At the final bonfire Hania told Ash he understands everything Ash has said in the past, he loves her and he wants to marry her. Ash told him she wants to heal, and she had something so intense with Taylor that its best she leaves the island by herself. Hania then also left by himself.

As for Ashley and Lascelles, they struggled with things such as being emotional with each other, doing spontaneous things with each other, and being their selves. They both needed to figure out who they really are without being attached at the hip. As the two went on their journey they went on different paths. Lascelles claims to have fallen in love with another girl named Trace. She opens Lascelles up in a way Ashley says she couldn’t have. Lascelles becomes more open in his emotions and vocal in his feelings. Seeing that another girl had to bring that out of him, made Ashley cry at most of the bonfires. She tried to move on as well with Blake but they just didn’t have the same connection as Trace and Lascelles had.

Iris & Luke also had trust issues in their relationship and Iris initially brought Luke on as a “cheating” test for him, so she can see if he was capable of cheating again. However, on this journey, Iris found out that she didn’t value herself enough in their relationship and it’s a lot more wrong with their relationship than him cheating or flirting with other girls. Luke took the journey to prove himself to iris and open up more vulnerably when it comes to his emotions. He learned he loved Iris, is not interested in other women and wants to be with Iris. They both left the final bonfire together and are now engaged.

Edgar and Gillian were another couple that has trust issues and came to the island to solve them. Edgar cheated on Gillian during their 7-year relationship and Gillian wanted to figure out if he had truly changed and if she was ready to commit to him after being with him since high school. She question if she should be with him just because it was the only thing she had known and wanted to explore outside of that. Edgar had agreed to come on the show to prove himself. Throughout Gillian explored a relationship with Tommy and as Edgar would watch that unfold he started to open up to islander Marissa. At the final bonfire, they decided to leave alone at first but then Edgar changed his mind and left with Marissa.

Starting with Lascelles and Ashley, we find out is more of a player than we thought. It was revealed Lascelles wanted to leave single with Ashley, before actually choosing to leave with Trace, and production exposed Lascelles and Trace were very sexual behind the scenes. When asked what happened after they left, Lascelles claims after they left the island he went to visit Trace in California but the chemistry wasn’t the same off the island, and they are now friends. This, however, didn’t last long because several minutes after islander Alexa dropped an explosive secret on stage that they hooked up in October and then that same night he kissed Med another islander that was on the show. Trace of course got emotional finding out he hooked up with Alexa and Meg before visiting Trace in California a month later. All of this happened two months after filming. Then, Ashley also revealed within the same week (4 weeks before the reunion was filmed) he told both Trace and Ashley he loved them. He said he did it because he was hurt seeing Ashley was pursuing someone else and he wanted her to know he still love her. Ashley says with all this unfolding she got validation that she’s never going back to him.

Social media after finding this out was not happy at all. We see many saying that both girls, Ashley and Trace deserve better. They also agreed that Lascelles is a player with way too many excuses.

When it comes to Edgar and Gillian, Edgar said that once got home he was destroyed realizing he cheated on her again. Gillian emphasized her pain and hurt from being cheated on again in her eyes and the audience sees Edgar get emotional as she does so. Tommy and Marissa both bonded on the sidelines on the fact that Edgar is a good guy and shouldn’t be torn apart by Gillian the way she was, because Tommy and Gillian did all the same thing Marissa and Edgar did, but just did it first. Later on, Marissa expressed on stage how sad she was it was over after leaving the island. Edgar says he just really wants to work on himself before getting into another relationship.

Social media did not respond well to this. They felt Gillian took little to no responsibility for the pain she had caused on Edgar first and was gaslighting him. Many agreed with Tommy and Marissa that she just kept beating up ‘ a dead dog’ because he already was so hurt and felt so bad about the situation and she kept on going to make him feel worst. Gillian never apologized for all she had done to hurt Edgar on the show while Edgar has taken responsibility and shown how emotional e is over it showing he genuinely cares about her.

Luke and Iris came on still engagement strong and got a little heat questioning Luke and if he’s trustworthy but overall social media had no reactions to them and they will get married in two years.

They then moved to Ash and Hania and we found out Ash stayed strong. She didn’t go back to Hania and is single. She tried to reach out to Taylor to continue what they had but after she reached out using the number he gave her, she found out he gave her a fake number. This hurt her feelings and even Hania spoke up for her and told Taylor it was messed up how he did that and he’s not a good person. Social media exploded with this information given.

As for Hania, he says he growing and learning to be a better man.

This season was definitely one for the books and we are so excited to see what the next season brings.
