'90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days' Paul and Karine

Paul and Karine are going rollerblading. They explain that they hooked up last night, and are both happy about that. But Karine is upset that Paul hasn't asked her to marry him.

Paul needs to tell his secret (which we wrote about previously)...and he's running out of time. So he sits her down to come clean...

Paul types out the dramatic statement. "I'm a convicted criminal.

I've been in jail." As we know, he's talking about arson -- and possibly domestic violence. He says he was accused of arson (convicted) and he had an EOP on him. You can read much more about that here.

Paul then runs off, leaving Karine confused.

He runs off into the woods like a 6 year old who gets yelled at, and Karine follows her. But they're in a very dangerous area, and something is about to happen. Paul is at the top of a like 10 foot cliff and he is about to jump. (yes 10 foot)....

Karine talks him down. She says she doesn't care about his past. She pushes him away from the cliff.

As she walks away from Paul, a guy comes and tries to mug her. It seems really fake. A gunshot goes off and a guy runs off. There's chaos. She says she doesn't want to be with Paul anymore.

We know what happens to them...you can read about it here.

'90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days' Abby and Sean

Tonight's episode begins with Sean and Abby and Chris, the other man. They meet at a restaurant.

Chris is flirting with Abby on the drive to the restaurant. We found out last time that Chris gave Abby a strange skin condition -- they discuss it before going in to meet Sean.

Sean is waiting when Abby and Chris walk in. Chris seems to think this is all a joke; but Sean is very unhappy. The meeting is extremely tense.

Sean asks to see the WhatsApp conversation that Abby had with Chris. Abby doesn't want to give it.

Sean says that he gave her access to all of his information. He comes out and says "I do not want you and Abby having a relationship...I think you're poisonous."

Chris gets angry and walks away. Abby doesn't want him to leave, so she gets upset. And she walks off too.

Sean follows Abby and tries to get her to talk to him. He runs into Chris sitting outside the restaurant. Chris admits that he's staying in Haiti after Sean leaves.

Sean then runs into Abby, who tells Sean to leave her alone. Sean says he loves her, and she says she doesn't care. He accuses her of having sex with Chris, which she denies.

Sean then gives her a choice: Chris or him. Abby seems to pick Chris, and she leaves. Sean is devastated.

'90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days' Cortney and Antonio

Cortney is starting to like Antonio...even after she caught him texting other women last episode.

Cortney confronts Antonio about his naked pictures. He insists he's never done porn, so she shows the pictures she has of him. He insists that's not porn. He gets upset and doesn't want to discuss this stuff anymore.

Later that day, Cortney drops the porn thing -- and a new thing starts. Antonio is checking out girls at a restaurant, and Cortney notices. Also, Antonio hasn't told anyone about Cortney, and he won't answer whether they are dating.

He eventually says "ok, I am your boyfriend..are you happy." He then checks out the butt of another girl, and Cortney gets really upset. She eventually walks out and makes a passive-agressive joke.

'90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days' Jesse and Darcey

Darcey is still in her hotel room after leaving Jesse the night before. Jesse shows up at the hotel room, but he expects some sort of apology from her.

She apologizes, but he asks her never to drink again. He says that his family had addicts and it tore lives apart.

He says they will always be together if she promises to never drink again. (Do they always stay together? Read our spoilers...)
