Married at First Sight

Nine’s evening began with the shockwaves from the Commitment Ceremony on Married at First Sight. 

Jack’s revealing comments about his relationship create doubts about his true feelings towards Tori. This left everyone questioning Jack’s intentions and Tori is feeling uncertain about where she stands.

After their heartfelt conversation on the couch, Sara and Tim have renewed hope in their relationship. Tim commits to showing Sara his assertive side in order to unlock the softer side of her that he desires. 

Couples then made their way to Byron Bay for the annual Couple’s Retreat. No one was more excited about the trip than Byron Bay local, Lucinda. But when a seemingly innocent game triggers a significant moment of vulnerability from Timothy, he experiences an emotional breakthrough that promises to transform his relationship with Lucinda. 

As pressure mounts, Sara found herself under even greater strain when Tim’s lack of response to a heated altercation between Sara and Micheal places their marriage on unstable ground.
