Hayley Called Ivan the C-Bomb on Tonight’s Tense Episode of Married at First Sight
Ivan introduced himself to Hayley by saying, "So you've been having some fuckin' drama, huh?", and "You're the fuckin' talk of the town, Big Hayley, what's going on?" So she called him a "little weasel" and asked him to be less intense and talk to her, not at her. His response was to slow conversation down to an even more patronising level. So Hayley called him the C-bomb and flicked a piece of paper at him. The cutaways were solid gold.
He insisted on an explanation for her comment, and her answer was just that he's a "fuckin' arsehole". Connie rushed to Hayley's side to have a different conversation. "Where are you staying in Sydney at the moment?" she asked. Jon explained that he was very full-on, and Hayley said he was abrupt.
Ivan's actions pissed off Aleks too. She asked him to extricate himself from the drama, but he kept pushing. "The way he cares about me and treats me is a different person to who he is towards other people."
But that's not the end of the drama for Hayley. She arrived separately to David, who turned up without his ring, still holding on to resentment from their honeymoon. "Where's your ring and where's your wife?" was Stacey's immediate question, but David wouldn't be pressed to smear her before she arrives. Hayley tried to spin the absent ring as it being too big for his finger.
While she had resolved to just "get smashed with the girls and bitch about their husbands" (mood), she actually spent the entire time trying to perform a more intimate relationship with David for the others. And it made her partner uncomfortable. When they're talking privately, Hayley insisted, "I missed your shit head, I'll be honest." He literally spent part of the episode trying to push back against her attempts at physical intimacy, before half bragging, half being disgusted that she scratched his face while coming onto him.
Steve earlier tried to meddle in their relationship, hearing Hayley out about how she wants to give it a try, and encouraging David not to give up — even if his wife is a smoker who made a poor taste joke about his income, and didn't satisfactorily apologise for it. But by the end of the episode, it felt like no matter what Hayley did, it was the wrong thing for David's headspace.
