Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 205
AIRED:
The show opens at Tambor Tropical in the morning with Edmundo and Hilary. In an interview, both of them admit that they have made a good connection with each other. Hilary acknowledges that Edmundo is everything that she would want in a man. Later that morning the coupled guys at Tambor Tropical are informed that they can view their video messages. John is elated. He makes a solemn walk through the driftwood gates and down the shoreline. John knows that being able to see Shannon's video message is the most intimate contact they have had in a week. John watches Shannon's message, which says that their relationship is built on trust. She tells him that they have a strong core and to remember that they trust one another. This overt use of the word trust displays her insecurity about John making connections with the singles. Shannon walks to the lookout over Tango Mar. John's video message explains why he did not watch the bonfire tape showing the single's telling the couples who they were attracted to and why. This meant that she could not watch his tape. John takes the last 5 seconds to tell Shannon that he loves her. From this message, Shannon thinks that something is missing. She is scared because she does not know what is going on over at Tambor Tropical. In Catherine's message to Edmundo she tells him that he is her "personal legend." She is emotion drenched and adds that he is also her prince. She ends the message with their inside verbiage, "besos," which means kisses. Edmundo reacts to this message by saying that he feels the message was both frightening and compelling. He knows that she might not accept all the things that he's done. In Edmundo's message, he tells Catherine to look into his eyes. He asks her to remember what he is feeling and continues, "I'm having innocent fun, be true to yourself." She recognizes the sadness in his eyes and this makes her worry. She says that she would truly give anything to see him. Tommy views Nikkole's video message. Nikkole says that this is all a bit gut wrenching, but she is making good friends on her side of the island. She hopes that Tommy does not make a big connection with any one girl. Tommy thinks that by her voice and what she said, Nikkole is ready to go home. He remembers that he did not send her a message, but assures himself that she knows he cares. When Nikkole finds an empty box and no video message, she is visibly disappointed. Contrary to what Tommy thought, Nikkole has no clue why Tommy did not send her a message. It is tough and she gets the feeling that Tommy does not care at all. When Tony goes to view his video message he is met by the host Mark. Mark informs Tony that Genevieve did leave a message, but due to the nature of the content, he would have to view it at a more appropriate time. This is all Mark tells Tony. Mark also meets Genevieve when she goes to the lookout to find her message. Mark tells her that she has an important meeting to go to. The rest of the day Tony is confused and worried. His mind spins as he talks with the other guys and the single girls about what Genevieve could possibly have said that would bar him from viewing the tape. Tony says that he does not want to appear weak or vulnerable, but he wants some answers. At Tango Mar, everyone is involved in a beach side cookout, except Genevieve. Shannon is worried. She thinks that her and Genevieve mesh well together. She knows that Genevieve never came back after they went to view their messages earlier that morning. Catherine suspects that Genevieve is off the island. Girls go to bonfire first. Mark says that although today was a bit crazy, all the answers will be explained in time. Mark does let them know that Genevieve will not be here tonight. Mark reiterates that bonfire is always about personal choice. Tonight they have the opportunity to view their boyfriend in a group interaction with the single girls. If they choose to watch it has no bearing on if their boyfriends will watch. Catherine goes first and she wants to see the tape. As soon as the screen opens she watches Amanda dancing with Edmundo. Edmundo kisses her. Catherine is stunned. She looks over at Shannon, who appears to be smiling. Catherine shoots her a look as her shock turns to sadness. Mark asks if she is okay, and she first replies "yes," and then "no, it is not okay." She says, "that was not Edmundo, that is not the guy I know." Mark explains to Catherine that the context behind the video is missing. Shannon agrees and asks the other girls not to watch her video. She thinks that reality and perception are two different things and that is why she does not want any of their opinions. In her video she sees John dancing on top of the beach bar. He is surrounded by tons of girls. Contrary to Catherine's experience, Shannon thinks that it was cool to see a glimpse of what is going on at Tambor Tropical. Nikkole knows that her video is going to be the worst. As she opens the player, she exclaims, "I knew it. I told yah." She watches Tommy dancing with Kristen and kissing her. Nikkole thinks that from the beginning Tommy never appreciated what a great woman she is. If this is what he wants then fine. She thinks this process is much worse because she is clueless as to when and where this happened. She remembers that Tommy did not leave a message either. She thinks things are only going to get worse. On the guys boat ride over to bonfire, John is angry that Tony was left in the dark all day after not receiving his video message. Edmundo is anxious, fearing that something is going down. When they arrive at bonfire, Mark explains the bonfire choices and tells Tony that tonight he will go last. John is asked to go first and he takes a while to think over his choice. He decides that he does not want to watch the video. Mark asks John for his reasoning and John says he would rather have Shannon tell him about it later. John knows that seeing Shannon party is his Achilles heel. At least when she parties at home, she'll end up at home. Here on the island, every night she'll end up away from John. Tommy's curiosity makes him watch. He chooses to share the video with the other guys. They see Nikkole getting massaged by three guys. Tommy C. being the most prominent. John says that the video affects all of them since it is clear that all of their girlfriends are getting massaged. The video makes Tommy nervous. Watching someone else touching his girlfriend is not an easy pill to swallow. He concludes this is not a pretty sight. Edmundo chooses to watch. He sees Catherine getting a massage also. He does not like what he sees, but he is more concerned with what Catherine might see. Mark answers that she might have already seen it. Edmundo retreats to the idea that he is just having innocent fun. Tony goes last after Mark excuses everyone else. Mark tells Tony that now is the appropriate time for him to view Genevieve's video message. Tony grabs the viewer and tunes in. Genevieve says that last year when Tony proposed to her at the Vatican, she was not ready to get married and it made her mind spin. It gave her doubts and made her think about the finality of marriage. Then the opportunity to come to Temptation Island seemed like a gift from god, it was meant to be. But now, in just a short time, she has realized what a fool she was to let him get away. She does not want another day to pass by without seeing Tony. She asks him if he would make her the happiest girl in the world and be her husband. Mark tells Tony that he can arrange to have Genevieve here at bonfire if he wants to talk with her face to face. Tony agrees. Genevieve enters bonfire and Tony proceeds to tell her that today was the toughest afternoon he has ever endured. He starts off by describing his experience on the island. He learned a lot about himself. His list of goals did not have a relationship on it. After seeing Genevieve's message, Tony decides that he wants to make their relationship his number one priority. He wants to end this journey and "Yes" he wants to marry her.moreless
