Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen the first nine episodes of season 5 of Love Is Blind, proceed with caution.
Wedding bells are ringing, Love Is Blind fans! Season 5 of the Netflix dating show is almost coming to a close with the streaming service dropping the final two episodes before the wedding-packed finale on Friday. Lydia Velez Gonzalez and James Milton Johnson IV (aka Milton) are one of just two couples to get through the drama and head toward the altar.
And while the pair appears to get going stronger than Milton’s mustache, they did end their final date before the wedding on a sour note.
Despite being significantly younger, Milton has shown his maturity in many ways, shutting down Uche’s attempts to poison him against Lydia. Milton stepped away from the interaction looking like a 10. And when his family seemed to call out Lydia’s intentions, Milton brushed that off too, looking confident in his decision.
But in their final dinner together, the couple seems to unleash lots of pent-up tension.
Lydia complains about her fiancé’s behavior around the house, outlining his messy habits. When he tells her he’s trying, she replies, “If this is you trying your best, then I’m concerned.”
But Lydia can’t seem to take it the same way she can dish it, because when Milton points out that he did like the way she handled the situation with Uche at the party, she gets very upset.
“I don’t feel like I can tell you honestly how I feel a lot because you are so emotional,” Milton says to his future bride.
He also adds that he’s concerned because he wants to teach his future children to be level-headed and not to react based on their emotions. The conversation causes Lydia to have to excuse herself from the table before returning, clearly upset and hurt.
It was a tense exchange to have right before the wedding episode, leaving viewers to wonder whether the two will go through with the nuptials when the time comes.
So do these two end up together? That remains to be seen. Neither one is following the other on social media, but it’s not uncommon for the cast to wipe their pages clean of any spoilers about their relationship status. Milton did like one of Lydia’s friend’s birthday posts in honor of her special day back in August.
Season 5 of Love Is Blind was filmed in early 2022, so if they are still together, the couple has been keeping this secret for more than a year.
New episodes of Love Is Blind stream Fridays on Netflix.
