90 Day Fiance couple Molly Hopkins and Luis Mendez called it quits earlier this year, filling for divorce after TLC chronicled their wedded crash and burn.
Viewers will be get a front row seat to the couple’s demise, as their story picks up on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? — the follow-up series premiering Sunday night.
Fans of the series know that last season ended with Luis, 27, exiting the scene, after turning Molly’s two daughters’ lives upside down. Molly’s Dominican born hubby returned only a few weeks later, supposedly ready to give family life another shot.
“I want to say I’m so sorry for going like that,” Luis says. “I came back and want to fix everything with us, with you, with me.”
Molly’s eldest daughter, Olivia, speaks up, while her mother sits in silence.
“I mean you just kind of left, and my mom was sad for weeks. When you’re an adult and you have responsibilities, you can’t just go to another place whenever you get mad,” she explained. “You’re supposed to be able to talk about things and work it out.”
“I’m here for that reason exactly,” Luis responds.
Olivia isn’t buying what Luis is selling, shading the motives behind his filmed apology.
“I don’t know if Luis meant his apology to me and Kensley or if he was just doing it to get back in my mom’s good graces,” Olivia says. “I don’t think it was really from the heart.”
Olivia expresses concern for her little sister, noting that she would soon be headed off to college.
“We all just have to try to really make a family,” Molly finally remarks. “We’re married, you’re my husband, he’s your stepdad.”
We know now that their effort was a bust, Luis even accusing Molly, 42, of domestic violence — a scuffle partially revealed in the season trailer.
Watch Molly and Luis’ story unfold on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After season 3 premiere Sunday night, at 8:00 p.m. ET, on TLC.
