90 Day Fiance: The Other Way is not holding back when it comes to Season 2 drama.
On Episode 16, we see Ariela undergo her emergency C-section.
The friction between Ariela and Biniyam's fundamental disagreements isn't going away, however, even as she recovers from surgery.
Armando and Kenneth see how Armando's family is reacting to their engagement news, especially little Hannah.
Tim and Melyza sleep together for the first time since he arrived. It was great … and then everything goes downhill.
Deavan and Jihoon are settling into their new apartment and looking to finally have a real wedding.
Brittany speaks to her family about the situation, omitting some key details so that they won't worry. They're worried anyway.
Meanwhile Yazan's family has turned his life upside down. He has lost everything for Brittany, he reveals.
1. Ariela Weinberg and Biniyam Shibre
Ariela went in for a normal ultrasound only to find out that she would have to undergo a C-section that very day. It is absolute nightmare fodder. With Biniyam there for emotional support, she also calls her family. Her mom, Janice, assures her that it will be okay, that the family will come out to see her, and that she cannot wait to meet her grandbaby.
2. But obviously, she’s still frightened
Giving birth is frightening and painful enough on the due date. A C-section is major surgery, which always carries risks, and Ariela is understandably overwhelmed.
3. Biniyam gets weird
He shares that his family and community have taught him that a natural vaginal birth is somehow more pure or loving than a C-section and that it helps the mother and child bond. This is not an Ethiopia-only mindset; you can find plenty of people spewing insulting brainrotten nonsense in the US, too. Delivery methods have nothing to do with how much a mother loves her child.
4. Dude, no
Biniyam also thinks that having surgery is less painful??? Just because you’re asleep for it doesn’t mean that they are not cutting through the wall of your abdominal muscles and then slitting open your uterus to remove a whole baby. It’s giving birth — there’s no fun or easy option.
5. Ariela is having such a hard time
She has to stop crying and shifting so that they can put her under. Oh this was so hard to watch. Like, you wish that her mom could just teleport there to hold her hand.
6. Finally, she was under
Obviously, we didn’t see the gruesome details of the surgery. It might have done Biniyam good to see it, to be honest.
