Jephte returned from visiting his family in New York, and Shawniece said it "wasn't bad" to be apart from her husband and child. The couple had yet to talk about their relationship, but both Shawniece and Jephte seemed to appreciate having space.
Shawniece wasn't sure how to move forward with Jephte, especially since their daughter Laura is "a little diva," according to Shawniece, and she couldn't get any alone time with Jephte.
Shawniece therefore suggested to Jephte that they go on a little date and watch a sunrise together, and Jephte liked the idea of having a quiet, private moment with his wife.
Shawniece is not a morning person, but she woke up at 5:30AM to catch the sunrise with Jephte. The pair walked through a path in the woods in the dark and Shawniece was a little nervous and scared, but they eventually made their way to the water.
Shawniece and Jephte watched the sunrise together, and Jephte said it was a fun date with really nice scenery.

"It was the first step to getting back [to where we were], I know we have a lot more work to do," Jephte said.
Later on, Shawniece told her husband to get dressed for dinner, and Jephte went a little overboard. Shawniece said the couple never failed to laugh with each other and that was definitely something that's good for their marriage.
Before eating dinner, Shawniece asked Jephte to participate in a relationship-building activity or "trust exercise" and have a little fun with it.
Shawniece blindfolded Jephte as a result and fed him food, including shrimp pasta. Jephte had to guess what he was eating, and he was just happy Shawniece had fed him edible things and "not dirt or something."
The couple also worked on their communication, and Shawniece said she wanted to focus on the laughter in their relationship going forward rather than their frequent arguments.
Elizabeth and Jamie
Elizabeth and Jamie revealed to their MAFS co-stars on a group videochat they had both tested positive for coronavirus after traveling to North Carolina.
Elizabeth revealed her symptoms came in "waves" and the virus felt like "an extended version of the flu."
On their third day of experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, Jamie said "it sucks," and Elizabeth added, "I wouldn't wish this upon my worst enemy. We haven't been able to get off the couch for literally three days... It hurts so bad."
Elizabeth complained of having a fever, chills, stomach aches, headaches and more, and Jamie completely agreed and said he was "over it" already. The next day, Elizabeth apparently suffered from a migraine.
On Day 5 of their symptoms, Jamie told his wife that he had no energy and couldn't stop sleeping. Jamie said he had no desire to stand up, but Elizabeth noted, "Today, I feel like a different person."
On Day 6 of the couple having coronavirus, Jamie still wasn't feeling good, and he admitted he was hurting "everywhere."
The next day, Elizabeth said Jamie was "really, really sick" and looked like "death," and she worried his symptoms were going to get worse.
Elizabeth said Jamie was on a downward spiral while she had moments when she felt okay, and so she brought him some orange juice in bed and expressed her love for him.
Later on, Elizabeth tried a holistic approach to healing Jamie when he was still feeling under the weather. She included crystals in the wellness treatment, and Jamie told his wife that he was already feeling better.
With a quartz crystal on Jamie's head, Elizabeth asked her husband to take a shot of ginger, lemon and cayenne pepper.
"It burns the corona away," Elizabeth joked, clarifying how that wasn't a scientific fact.
Deonna and Greg
Deonna told Greg that he needed to practice his parenting skills since they were trying for a baby, and so the couple watched Deonna's nephew, who belongs to her sister De'Asia.
The toddler apparently cried a lot and so Greg definitely had his work cut out for him and was responsible.
"You're going to be a great dad," Deonna told her husband.
Greg said watching Deonna's nephew made him more comfortable about the idea of having a baby. Deonna even called him "the baby whisperer," and Greg predicted he'd definitely rise to the occasion of being a father.
"It made me realize I want to have my own soon," Greg said.
"I am really proud of Greg for stepping up to the plate," Deonna shared. "He showed me what I knew he could do this entire time."
Greg and Deonna apparently both came down with a case of baby fever, and the couple was getting along great.
Ashley and Anthony
Ashley and Anthony were shown planning their gender-reveal party, which Anthony joked would be "a sex party."
Anthony's brother, who is stationed in Iran in the military, received the results so neither Anthony or Ashley could easily find out whether they have a baby boy or girl on the way.
Anthony suggested they could set off fireworks at the party, but Ashley pointed out that would be dangerous. She envisioned setting off little cannons and a barbecue in which they cook up some chicken and ribs.
Suddenly, Anthony got a call from Ashley at work while he was watching their daughter Mila at home. Ashley said she needed to go to the emergency room because she was bleeding and there was a lot of blood.
"I don't think that's good... It's not normal. I just feel like it's over. I feel like this is the end," Ashley vented to her husband over the phone, adding, "I don't have a good feeling about this."
Anthony was worried about Ashley and wished he could go to the hospital with her, but Ashley didn't want him sitting in the waiting room and exposing himself to coronavirus as well.
Ashley didn't lose the baby, but once she returned home from the emergency room, she was still bleeding and didn't have answers as to why this was happening to her.
Ashley was therefore upset and emotional because she was still bleeding "heavily," however, a doctor told her that her ultrasound looked fine and the baby's heartbeat was strong.
"They didn't really give me any information," Ashley noted. "It just doesn't make any sense because you're not supposed to be bleeding, and I just feel like I'm waiting for the inevitable."
Anthony tried to comfort his wife by saying bleeding during a pregnancy can be normal for many women, but Ashley wasn't sure when it was going to stop.
"I just don't know how I'm supposed to move forward when we're supposed to be planning a gender-reveal party and I don't even know if there's going to be a baby at this point," Ashley cried to her husband.
Anthony's whole family was supposed to be coming to the party, and Ashley said she wasn't sure how she was going to get everything ready.
Jamie and Doug
Jamie and Doug drove their two-year-old daughter Henley and two-month-old son Hendrix to Ithaca, New York to see Jamie's family. Jamie's mother was about to meet her grandson for the first time.
Jamie said she used to be "immensely" ashamed of her past and poor upbringing, but she said she learned it was just a situation she was born into and she's proud of her family now.
Jamie and Doug drove up to a trailer park and Jamie reunited with her nephew, grandmother and other family members.
Jamie said being with her loved ones was "awesome" even though they had their fair share of ups and downs. Jamie also thought it was really cool to have four generations of women in her family in the same place.
Doug said he's really interested in how and where Jamie grew up, and so he was glad to join her on this trip.
Jamie later gave Doug a tour through her hometown and old stomping grounds. She showed Doug her high school and a little creek where she used to play and look for shellfish.
"As much as I thought I wanted to get away from the trailer park and my hometown, I'm telling you, I miss it," Jamie admitted. "There is no shame in living in a trailer, and I wish I had known that [before]."
Jamie called Doug her "rock" and noted she finally felt "at peace" with her childhood and how she had to step up and take care of her siblings at a young age.
Doug told Jamie that she should be proud of herself because she had made it very far, and the couple agreed they should return to her hometown later on to do some fishing and ATVing with the kids.
Kristine and Keith
Kristine said Keith had been "working like a crazy person," so she decided to set up a spa at home for Keith for his birthday.
When Keith came home from work, there was a bouquet of flowers on the living room table, and Kristine asked him to meet her in the bedroom after taking a shower.
"It's about to go down! Okay! This is what I'm talking about -- birthday stuff... It's time to turn up!" Keith gushed.
Kristine surprised Keith with a massage bed surrounded by rose petals and candles, and Keith seemed very happy and pleased.
Kristine told Keith to "strip," and he said he couldn't wait for a massage after another exhausting week at work. However, Keith immediately fell asleep on the massage bed, and Kristine joked it was "typical."
After Keith's nap, Kristine and Keith did facial masks together, and Keith said his face felt good and his back felt amazing. Keith was grateful to his wife for a lovely evening.
Jessica and Austin
Austin was doing some research on The National Guard in attempt to find information. Jessica suggested they should take a study break and clean the apartment, but Austin thought their place was fine.
Austin argued that Jessica's cleaning standards are not normal, but Jessica totally disagreed.
When Jess was out of the apartment, Austin fully cleaned the place for his wife. He even put her throw pillows on the bed, which he apparently disliked.
Jessica said Austin had passed her test, especially because he had removed her hair from their master shower. Jessica was impressed overall -- until she opened her closet and items came pouring out.
