'MAFS' Season 15: Did Alexis friendzone her husband Justin on national TV? Fans say she's being 'fake happy'
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: A 'Married at First Sight' pair is contemplating Decision Day, and the October 19 episode provided viewers with a glimpse of their conversation, which included talk about initiating intimacy and some startling advice from a mother about "being more freaky." Alexis and Justin's talk right before Decision Day convinced viewers that she is not interested in him and that he needs to stop trying to improve himself to her standards.
Lifetime aired 'Married at First Sight' Season 15 Episode 16 tonight. Justin and Alexis had one more meal before the decision day, and the latter sought to persuade his wife to say yes by promising to stop overthinking. Alexis was dubious of Justin's confession because she suspected it was simply "lip service" and that he would make no effort after D-Day. Justin also told Alexis that his mother urged him to be more "freaky" in the bedroom, and Alexis agreed.
During October 19 episode of 'MAFS,' which airs on 8/7 c on Lifetime, Alexis and Justin discussed meeting with the experts in less than a week to determine whether to stay married or divorce. Despite past ups and downs, including a pet dog attack, a fight in front of the other couples, and looming questions about their relationship despite Justin breaking his celibacy, the pair is presently in a happy position. Last week, Justin assumed Alexis was certain she would say "yes" on Decision Day, but when she admitted she was doubtful, he became concerned.
Now the apprehensive husband, who gave up his dog for his bride, is eating dinner with her and receiving yet another surprising revelation from her. Alexis and Justin have a lovely evening that is tarnished by misgivings on both sides in Wednesday's episode. Justin says that he's been "in his head" about his marriage, which he's been trying to work on. This drives Alexis to reveal that this is one of her main concerns about him. “I think it’s perfect timing because I was worried at one point that you would never come to that conclusion,” expresses Alexis. “But now that you’re coming out and saying this, I’m not only proud, but it’s making me decrease that 10 [percent of doubt] because that was a big part of it.”
She also stated that she wants to establish a "safe space" for Justin and "honor him" before approaching him about his marital demands. Justin wants to feel "desired" by his wife, so he tells her about some information he learned from his mother regarding their bedroom conduct.
"You know how you wanted me to be dominant in the bedroom?" Justin inquires. “Sometimes I want the roles to switch, not saying you dominate me, but sometimes like initiating when it comes to intimacy. […] It’s not something you have to do all the time because when it comes to that, I can step outside my comfort zone and in my mama’s eyes ‘be more freaky.'"
"Oh, so that’s what mama said?” Alexis says as Justin recounts the awkward conversation to his laughing wife.
Despite the humorous incident, Alexis becomes serious and tells her husband that she still has concerns and wonders whether they should end their relationship and simply be friends. "I still have my doubts," Alexis acknowledges. "If we were to stay together it would more so focus on consistency stabilization, foundation—understanding each other but this isn’t Best Friends At First Sight, this is Married At First Sight."
She goes on, "Either way I think you’re a great person and maybe we might be better off as friends, who knows?” Justin wanted to focus more on their wedding foundation, but Alexis suggested that they could be better suited as real-life friends.
Seeing Alexis wanting to stay friends with Justin, a fan criticized her saying: "Stop calling this man "baby" if you want to be his friend, Alexis. Confusion is abuse." Another fan added how Alexis pretends to be happy around Justin: "Alexis being fake happy with Justin is so cringe." Fans are tired of seeing Justin trying to 'improve' him for her: "Alexis doesn't want Justin. Hasn't wanted Justin. Ain't gonna want Justin. This conversation is just one long a** gaslight of her trying to make him think he needs to "improve" on something to win her over." Some fans are also convinced that she has made her decision already: "Alexis is telling Justin that she’s going to say no in the nicest way she can lol."

Another fan quipped: "Alexis just indirectly friendzoned Justin before Decision Day on national television." Some viewers are disappointed to see Justin not realize Alexis' feelings towards him: "I, can’t see how Justin is sitting there and not seeing the disgust on Alexis face of him. Like sir she do not like you." One fan believes that Alexis is waiting for Justin to say so she gets to be the one turning him down: "Alexis wants Justin to say yes, so she can say no and emasculate him one last time." One viewer even labeled Alexis 'calculated' as they write: "Alexis is so calculated! She's storing everything Justin is saying to use it against him later."
