In the past episodes of 90 Day: The Last Resort, viewers were shocked to learn that Asuelu, Kalani’s husband, had been cheating on her throughout their entire relationship. From cheating while she was pregnant to attempting online hookups, Asuelu’s betrayal took on a new level. Feeling broken and unable to forgive him, Kalani decided to reconnect with a person who made her truly happy – her “hall pass” boyfriend, Dallas.
Last Week’s Revelations:
During the previous episode, in the presence of her sister Kolini and a therapist, Kalani confronted Asuelu about his history of cheating. Asuelu tearfully admitted to betraying Kalani’s trust throughout their relationship. While his admission was commendable, it didn’t erase the hurt he had caused.
Kalani’s Struggle to Forgive:
In Episode 9, Kalani expressed her struggle to forgive Asuelu, revealing that his infidelity had been a constant presence in their relationship. She explained that her “hall pass” wasn’t just a one-time occurrence but a response to Asuelu’s continuous betrayals. This revelation left Liz, a fellow castmate, speechless and empathetic towards Kalani’s pain.
Liz’s Support and Empathy:
Liz admired Kalani’s patience and grace while enduring years of cheating. In a lighthearted moment, Liz jokingly mentioned that if her partner had put her through a similar situation, she would be planning their obituary. Although lighthearted, it highlighted the difficulties Kalani faced in her marriage.
Asuelu’s Untrustworthy Behavior:
Kalani shared that she no longer trusted Asuelu due to his recent suspicious behavior with his phone. She caught him hiding it, angling it away from her while deleting messages. Although people can be secretive about their phones, Asuelu had lost the benefit of the doubt due to his past actions.
The Light at the End of the Tunnel: Dallas:
Amidst all the chaos, Kalani found solace in her connection with Dallas, her “hall pass” turned boyfriend. Dallas reciprocated her feelings, providing clear communication and empathy, offering the opposite of what she experienced with Asuelu. Kalani even unblocked Dallas, signaling her willingness to explore a potential future with him.
Asuelu’s Moment of Clarity:
In a conversation with Jovi, Asuelu appeared to realize the extent of his foolishness. He acknowledged his clownish betrayals and worried that he had lost Kalani forever. This moment of self-awareness emphasized the need for change, but whether it was too late remained uncertain.
Kalani’s Night Away with Dallas:
Towards the end of the episode, a panicked Asuelu noticed Kalani’s absence. Unbeknownst to him, she had left the resort to spend the night with Dallas. Kalani shared this secret with her supportive sister, Kolini, who advised her to be honest with Asuelu.
The Challenge of Forgiveness:
Kalani’s struggles to even maintain a friendship with Asuelu after years of pain raise an important question: should she forgive him even if he genuinely changes? It’s a daunting decision to make, considering the magnitude of his past actions.
As we continue to follow Kalani’s journey on 90 Day: The Last Resort, it is evident that her bond with Dallas brings her the happiness and understanding she lacked in her relationship with Asuelu. Whether she chooses to forgive him or move forward with Dallas, the path to healing and self-discovery lies ahead for Kalani.
