The couples were matched by Married at First Sight experts Pastor Calvin Roberson, Dr. Jessica Griffin, and Dr. Pepper Schwartz based on compatibility, personality, life goals, hobbies, religion, views of marriage and gender roles, and much more.
Over the course of the season, which filmed for seven weeks, each couple is shown navigating the joys and struggles of daily life together after agreeing to an arranged marriage.
The latest Married at First Sight broadcast began with the four couples waking up in their cabin at the Pocono Mountains with only six days remaining until "Decision Day," when each couple must decide whether to stay married or get a divorce.
Jasmine vented her husband was "always sleeping," and he slept while the three other guys were cooking dinner.
Jasmine was a little annoyed sleeping happened to be Will's favorite thing to do because the other couples were having fun and getting to know each other better.
"I need to feel like I have a partner who wants to be present with me," Jasmine told the cameras before waking Will up.
Will said he just needed a little nap to recharge because it was tough to get a good night's sleep with three other couples under the same roof.
Kate said they were "good" and she felt "emotionally connected" to Luke -- as they cuddled and held hands -- but she wasn't sure how she felt about his lack of an attraction to her.
Jasmine asked Kate if she and Luke struggled with intimacy considering Will and herself had yet to have sex, but Kate didn't want to tell the ladies about her sex life assuming they wouldn't understand her position.
Instead of explaining Luke's "awkward" behavior after sex, Kate told Jasmine and Kristine he acted that way after kissing.
"I don't know how long I can stay with someone who wants to be attracted to me but isn't. How much time am I supposed to give to feel desirable to my husband?" Kate asked. "I should never feel awkward about kissing my husband."
The girls agreed Kate was in a sucky situation.
Kate added that Luke gave her "mixed signals" because then he'd insist he doesn't want to get a divorce.
Kate knew she had to admit to Luke she had talked about their sex life with Dr. Pepper, but she was hesitant to bring it up in fear the trust in their relationship would be damaged.
After dinner, Jasmine opened up to Kate about how she and Luke were not sexually active. Jasmine didn't know why Will wasn't affectionate, and she confessed to feeling uncomfortable around him.
Kate had the opposite problem, saying Luke was very touchy-feely but he seemingly felt forced to be intimate.
Kate then dropped the bombshell to Jasmine that she and Luke had been sexually active since their honeymoon.
Kate said Luke acted strange after every encounter and she could tell he didn't "desire" her. Kate didn't want to give up on her husband, but she didn't feel the situation was fair to herself.
"I need to feel wanted by my husband. So I feel if he's not attracted to me or doesn't show me that he is, then it may not last," Jasmine confided in Kate.
With five days remaining until "Decision Day," Keith declared to the house Kristine had inspired him to learn how to cook and Luke had given him some tips to become a better chef for his wife.
Everyone was getting along great on the mini-moon, but it became time for each couple to spend some alone time with their spouses.
Keith was then shown surprising Kristine with a romantic bubble bath inside a giant champagne glass. The couple loved being around each other, and Kristine said, "I was thinking about keeping you around, but I'm not really sure."
Keith admitted Kristine was "one of the best things" to ever happen to him and so he hoped they'd be on the same page come "Decision Day."
Kristine influenced Keith to step out of his comfort, and Keith appreciated how patient his wife was with him.
Keith also told Kristine he was "almost" in love with her.
Meanwhile, AJ admitted he never wanted to eat dinner alone again and the couple enjoyed a wine tasting. He took advantage of every possible moment he could with his wife.
Stephanie still had some questions about her future with AJ, however, because he tended to get frustrated frequently and overreact. Stephanie didn't want to deal with those outbursts for the rest of her life.
"I'm still trying to figure out how I feel," Stephanie noted.
As for Luke and Kate, they packed up their belongings at the cabin and Kate decided to dive into a conversation about "Decision Day" so they could be real, open and honest with each other.
Luke said he hadn't thought about "Decision Day" at all, which concerned his wife.
"I know I'm way better than where I was at. I know we were both pretty low, but I feel I'm up to a good amount," Luke explained to Kate.
"We've got to see how this week goes and [evaluate] things that are amazing and things that are not. So, I just want to make sure we are both sure."
Kate agreed, and then she confessed to Luke she had reached out to Dr. Pepper for advice on their sexual relationship. Kate also admitted she had spoken to Jasmine about it.
Luke wanted to keep their intimacy private, but he acknowledged, "I know you never do. I already figured you did, because everything you said you weren't going to talk about, you do to someone before you tell me you're going to do it."
Kate asked for an example, and then Luke told her about how she had talked to Pastor Cal about their first real post-wedding kiss.
Kate said she wasn't fully happy about the level of intimacy they had and so she needed advice on whether it was a problem relating to herself or their relationship in general.
Luke repeated, "I know," as Kate attempted to apologize.
Kate cried and apologized repeatedly, but Luke was clearly pissed off and wanted to go home.
Kate burst into tears when the couple left their mini-moon, and Luke could be heard saying, "It's okay. Come on."
Meanwhile, Will and Jasmine took a hike and he told his wife that she was "glowing." Will wanted to be in love and have it last forever.
Kate explained she had two glasses of wine, Luke gave her his two glasses, and then she was "drunk" and they "went back to the room" and "started talking about sex."
Luke hated talking about this on-camera, and things got worse when Kate confessed she wished it was "more normal" for them to have sex.
"If you want to have this talk on-camera and that's what you want to do, we can do it. But I would prefer not to," Luke said.
"Okay fine!" Kate said, clearly frustrated and annoyed.
"But if you want to, we can," Luke noted.
"I just want the truth. I want you to be honest," Kate said.
Luke admitted he "breezed over" Kate's "drinking problem" whenever someone else asked him about it because didn't want it to be "the focal point" of their problems.
Luke said he was really happy with Kate during their mini-moon, and she pointed out that was partly because she was working hard to improve in that area and not drink so much.
"You still don't think it's a problem?" Luke asked.
"'That's just me to have a glass of wine with dinner.' Okay, that's totally reasonable. 'I'm just going to have a couple glasses of wine.' Sure! That's totally fine. And then you're blackout drunk where you don't remember the end of the night."
