'90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' Season 7: Worried fans claim 'Ed is draining the life' out of Liz
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: Ed and Liz decided to postpone their engagement in order to address the trust issues that had arisen between them. Fans, however, have expressed their concern for Liz, who appeared torn and distraught on the most recent episode of '90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?'
Despite a major argument that nearly ended their romance, Elizabeth "Liz" Woods and Ed "Big Ed" Brown are still going strong. The engaged pair made apologies on Sunday night's episode of '90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' after Ed accused Liz of being a lesbian. The episode began with the revelation that Ed and Liz had decided to work on their relationship, despite the fact that the last thing viewers saw was Ed instructing Liz to collect her belongings and leave. Despite the couple's belief that the joint therapy session will help them restore their relationship, '90 Day Fiance' fans believe otherwise.
"We haven't given up," Ed assured the cameras. Liz described the reunion from her own point of view, addressing her own skepticism about the bond. "Ed has insecurities, and he's very jealous," she explained. "As angry and emotional as I am — and I'm like, this isn't gonna work out — I know that I don't wanna give up on him just yet." A trip on Ed's moped took the duo to a park, where they discussed their engagement party in detail. Ed explained why he asked Liz whether she was a lesbian, confessing that he never suspected she wasn't straight.
"Even before we get into the engagement party, I'm sorry," Ed said, addressing the woman who had grasped Liz's arm. "All that stuff about you wanting to be a lesbian, that was just my insecurities and my trust issues. I mean, you're young. You're hot. I saw her and I didn't like it. It made me mad at her, and I took it out on you."
He stated his true feelings towards Liz. "I don't believe in any way, shape, or form that you want to be with a woman. That was just me acting dumb." In a subsequent confessional interview, Ed admitted to needing to improve himself: "I always jump to conclusions. I think I got the jealous gene."
Liz replied with wisdom from her previous relationship. "I was accused so much," she said to Ed, "and it turned out to be him. I was constantly cheated on. It's a trigger when I say 'no' or 'please believe me' and you don't trust me. It brings that trauma back up." She went on to say that when pressed, she was made to believe Ed was being dishonest.
"Let me own that," Ed said. "I think there's a lot of internal stuff that you're dealing with, and there's a lot of internal stuff that I'm dealing with. Unless we can get that out of the way, we have a better chance of failing."
Ed and Liz's engagement appeared to be on hold - with conditions. "I want to marry you," Ed said to Liz. "But I don't want to be a divorcé again. And you don't either. Let's get through this, and then we can talk about if we're ready to get married." Liz, on the other hand, had her concerns. "We always end up coming back together 'cause we're crazy, we're weird, we're different," she said. "I'm not one to give up, but I do see Ed as someone easily to give up. I don't even know if he's ever gonna be ready to get married."
They acknowledge that they may benefit from counseling and have begun seeing a therapist. Liz says that she previously lived in her car after hitting rock bottom financially following a relationship, and she is terrified of returning to that position. Big Ed was unaware of this and began to cry. "I want Liz to have her own life and it saddens me that I’m coming off as controlling," he says afterward.
The therapist teaches Big Ed that Liz will be stronger in their relationship when she has more freedom. "She needs to have a separate life so that she can love you fully," the therapist explains, and it appears to be settling in for Big Ed.
Following their therapy session, fans couldn't hold back but share their concerns for Liz. One of them wrote: "Ed is draining the life out of Liz." One fan suggested Liz needs to go to therapy alone: "This girl needs therapy without Ed. He is definitely preying on her vulnerability." Slamming Ed and his insecurity, one viewer wrote: "Omg I cannot blv Ed is keeping Liz from working. Fck that. She needs to leave him. That is beyond insecure. Ridiculous." Noticing Ed trying to control the therapy session, a fan tweeted: " Ed wants to control the therapy meeting and the therapist shut him down. He's still being an a-hole."

Not buying Ed's big apology, a fan tweeted: "Ed is also a narcissistic abuser… says all this shit… blames Liz… deliberately verbally and emotionally abusive… and then says sorry it’s my fault I’m insecure… then he will do it all over again. Because it makes him feel bigger and better." Speaking of why Ed keeps Liz from working, a fan wrote, "Ed doesn’t want Liz to have a social life because if people learned how controlling he is of her they might convince her to leave. Period." Another fan couldn't help but call Ed and Liz out as they write: "Liz and Ed are addicted to the drama of the toxic tango they do… and attention. No wonder his friends and family don’t support this relationship. Those two are exhausting." Speaking of Liz trying to be the 'victim' in the relationship, a viewer wrote: "Liz wanna be the victim in this relationship so bad when she is merely a willing participant."
