“Temptation Island” is bringing out Ash’ claws and opening up the flood gates for Hania.
On Wednesday night’s episode, viewers got to see how the tables are turning in their relationship.
Things Between Ash & Hania Are Deteriorating
They originally came to the island so Hania could explore the idea of an open relationship, which is something Ash absolutely loathed.
As time on “Temptation Island” has passed, Hania has discovered an open relationship is something he does NOT want, while Ash is discovering her boyfriend isn’t who she wants.
Episode seven of season four saw the couples get a video message from their significant other, but there was a catch.
If someone didn’t feel like sending a video message, they didn’t have to.
Ash, who felt strongly about not sending a message said, “I don’t have s**t to say, or I’ll send one and say, ‘Hey, you up?’”
Ash Doesn’t Have S**T To Say To Hania
The “Hey, you up” message is a reference to the time she found a text message from another woman on Hania’s phone. The woman was asking to have sex with him.
It’s become very evident to Ash that throughout their relationship she never mattered to him.
“His happiness doesn’t really involve me and it never has,” Ash admitted harshly.
Ash and Taylor Patrick have an intense and emotional relationship unfolding on the island.
They’ve gotten intimate and she admitted there’s nobody else on the island she’d rather be with.
Hearing all of this has caused Hania to change his tune about his relationship with Ash, and rather than be mad she’s gotten physical with another man, he’s realizing he NEEDS her.
At the bonfire, Hania wasn’t subjected to seeing his S-O have sex with Taylor, but he did see them kissing and having a deep conversation.
“My heart’s pounding right now. This is what I wanted her to do,” Hania admitted. “We didn’t set any rules. I don’t know I expected her to make such a connection.”
It’s starting to set in that what he wanted for her is becoming his biggest fear.
Ash Is Drifting Away & Into Taylor’s Arms
“There’s a big part of me that feels like a fool, like an idiot,” Hania said. “Like I’ve been kidding myself. Watching her connect with him really hurts.”
When it came time to receive their respective video messages, Ash was shown first.
Hania tells her how he so proud of her and happy she’s connecting with someone else.
His message leaves Ash in absolute disgust and confusion.
“Hania has no idea how to not make everything some theatrical piece of s**t. I really don’t feel any emotion about it,” Ash admitted.
For Hania, things didn’t go as he expected.
He was really excited to hear from Ash and see what she had to say.
Staying true to her word, Ash didn’t have s**t to say and no video was made for Hania.
“I think I’m getting a message despite their being no video,” Hania said through tears.
“This process has really shown me how much I do love her. How much I did love and didn’t know it. I haven’t felt this far away from her as I do now,” he said. “Im absolutely terrified I’ve lost the absolute love of my life.”
