By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/04/2019
Love After Lockup featured Sarah finding out about Michael's affair with Megan, Marcelino proposing marriage to Brittany, and Tracie breaking up with Clint during Friday night's Season 2 broadcast on WE tv.
Love After Lockup's second season follows couples who met and fell in love online while one of them was behind bars.
After the convicts were released from prison and united with their significant others for the first time outside of supervised visits, the couples have tried to navigate the real world together.
At this point in the season, couples are looking to marry, move in together, or just get through life one day at a time in attempt to leave each convict's addiction or struggle in the past.
The latest episode starred Scott, a 51-year-old truck driver, and Lizzie from Oxnard, CA; Clint, a 37-year-old hotel desk clerk, and Tracie from Hobbs, NM; Marcelino, a 40-year-old writer, and Brittany from Las Vegas, NV; Caitlin, a 32-year-old administrative assistant, and Matt from Auburn, WA; and Megan, a 28-year-old in home health care, and Michael from Fort Worth, TX -- with Michael's wife, Sarah, a 24-year-old student and waitress making for a dramatic love triangle.
Below is an update on each Love After Lockup couple, according to WE tv's Friday night episode:
CLINT AND TRACIE
Tracie served eight years in prison for fraudulent checks and probation violation.
Clint met with his parents to discuss how Tracie had been arrested again and might spend over two years in prison.
Clint's parents were upset because they thought he deserved more. It was hard "spiritually, physically, and emotionally," according to Clint's mom.
Clint's parents constantly worried about their son and hated seeing him in love with "a drug addict."

Clint insisted it would be a dealbreaker for him if Tracie repeats her behavior following her next prison release.
"But at the end of the day, if I had to choose between my parents and Tracie, I would probably pick Tracie," Clint confessed to the cameras.
Once Clint left his parents' house, he was able to talk to Tracie on the phone. Clint told Tracie he loved her and his feelings hadn't changed for her.
Tracie, however, was worried his parents viewed her as "a gold digger" and that his friends thought she was using him.
Tracie's outburst upset Clint and so he threw his phone. Their relationship problems were shattering his heart.
"You keep b-tching at me but I haven't done anything but love you!" Clint said.
Clint didn't want to beg Tracie to stay with him, and she kept threatening him to end it. After a quick conversation, Clint revealed Tracie had broken up with him and "the whole world got their wish."
"She said she wants to be alone. Everyone is going to get what they want but me," Clint told his mom when she rushed outside to make sure he was okay.
MARCELINO AND BRITTANY
Brittany served two years in prison for conspiracy to commit burglary.
Brittany and Marcelino were prepared for their lives to change with the coming of their new baby. Marcelino didn't want to be held down from living his life, but Brittany reminded him there's no break when you're raising a child.
Lizzie told Scott she wanted to wait until marriage to have sex, but he didn't seem onboard with that. Scott insisted he could wait, but Lizzie was certain he was lying.
"Lizzie thinks I'm lying about sex, but I'm not. The truth is, I'm worried about money. I'm broke. The stress is killing me. I just want to leave and forget about this mess," Scott said in a confessional.
Lizzie then left Scott's place, and they were both frustrated and angry. Scott also caught her telling the cameras his "eyes were doing something weird."
Scott was upset because he never got mad at Lizzie but she got mad at him all the time. He wasn't sure Lizzie cared about him.
"I thought getting engaged was going to bring us closer, but right now, I'm not even sure she wants to be with me... When she finds everything out, I just pray she still wants to marry me," Scott said.
MEGAN AND MICHAEL (PLUS HIS WIFE SARAH)
Megan was heading to the jail to visit Michael. Meanwhile, Sarah discovered a lot of information on Michael's phone, and she couldn't be alone with her own thoughts.
Sarah therefore met with her best friend and revealed Michael's parole officer had informed her that Michael was with another girl named Megan on the day of his arrest for a parole violation.
"He was late for his [parole officer] meeting because he picked her up from the airport," Sarah said.
Sarah also found out Michael was with Megan during those two days he had previously disappeared. Sarah knew the pair had gone to a hotel.
"If you don't want me, be real about it!" Sarah vented. "This has been going on for a long time."
Michael then called Sarah on the phone from prison, and she immediately confronted him and unloaded on him. Megan asked Michael if he had flown to Niagra Falls to have sex with Megan.
"Why are you saying all of this?" Michael asked.
Megan yelled about how Michael had another woman and she wasn't stupid.
"Who do you love, Michael? Me or her?" Sarah asked Michael.
Michael said Sarah was asking him "weak ass questions," but then she yelled that she wasn't going to let him play her anymore. Sarah was ready to be done with their marriage and never talk to him again.
"God Sarah... I don't have the time to be answering these type of questions on the phone and fixing problems," Michael replied.
Sarah then admitted she was pregnant again. She said she was "devastated, heartbroken and scared." Sarah was prepared to get a divorce from Michael, and he had nothing to say.
Sarah burst into tears and needed help. Although Sarah knew she's a strong woman, she was in so much pain.
Sarah then shared with her best friend how she had found naked pictures of Megan on Michael's tablet and they were apparently engaged. Sarah knew Megan had been shopping for wedding dresses and looking at wedding venues.
"The phone tells it all, dude. I wonder if he actually proposed to her," Sarah told her friend, later adding that she didn't have a backup plan.
Sarah felt embarrassed and couldn't believe she had put up with him for years. She felt gross and didn't want to see him or hear from him.
"I have never been so disgusted in my life," Sarah told her friend.
Sarah knew Megan was going to visit Michael in jail based on emails she had read, so Sarah was prepared to confront her.
Sarah then drove to have a conversation with Megan. She felt violated and ashamed and was also irritated with Megan. Sarah said Megan claiming to know nothing about Michael's marriage was "bullsh-t."
Megan's plan to marry Michael had gone out the window, but she was still ready to support Michael and be with him.
As Sarah was driving to meet Megan in person, she said she wanted to tell Megan she was Michael's wife and the mother of his child -- not just "a baby mama."
Sarah was hoping Megan would respect her as Michael's wife and listen to what she had to say.
