After Taylor posted a disrespectful Instagram Stories video in which she claimed she was single and looking for a man who could meet her "minimal" requirements, Brandon moved out of their apartment and seemingly ignored his wife's attempts to talk until the pair was forced to reunite for a session with Married at First Sightexpert Dr. Pepper Schwartz.
But Taylor accused Brandon of always wanting to work things out with her off camera.
"Literally, every time after we have an argument on camera, Brandon will text me and say, 'Let's work this out,' or, 'We need to talk,' so we can talk off camera," Taylor revealed on the March 11 broadcast of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered.
"It's just weird to see these things on camera because literally the next day or the next situation, he's reaching out to talk."
Taylor recalled of her husband, "He was like, 'Yeah, I really want to clear things up. I want to let you clear things up.' And he would apologize off camera but not on camera."
Unfiltered host Jamie Otis was totally surprised to hear that given a person would normally choose to apologize when cameras are rolling in order to look better on television.
"Yes, yes!" Married at First Sight expert Pastor Calvin Roberson chimed in on Unfiltered, agreeing with Jamie's point.
"It's the opposite!" Jamie said.
"It's pride, man," Pastor Cal reasoned, adding of Brandon, "He doesn't want to look like he's weak."

Jamie therefore noted, "It's interesting because we're not seeing the whole picture."
"That's what I'm saying," Taylor said. "But the thing is, he just refuses to show the whole picture."
Taylor also believed Brandon had painted a negative picture of her that wasn't accurate when he showed one of his friends an extremely long chain of text messages she had allegedly sent him following their fight over the Instagram video.
"No, I didn't send him a bunch of texts. This was a conversation that we were having," Taylor insisted.
"I feel like he deleted everything that he said in the moment and just wanted to show his friend. Like, let your friend actually read what I'm saying -- it would not add up."
Brandon's friend appeared to get the impression that Taylor was obsessive and a bit crazy.
"From what Brandon is saying to his friend and how Brandon's friend is responding to it, I can understand that he has no idea what happened in Panama," Taylor observed.
As fans recall, Brandon had an outburst during the last day of his honeymoon with Taylor in Panama over production constantly trying to film him. Brandon took his frustrations out on Taylor in front of their co-stars and ended up yelling and cursing at her.
"If he had told his friend everything that he did and everything that he said in Panama, his friend would maybe be able to give him better advice," Taylor explained.
Brandon said his marriage to Taylor was "done" after the Instagram video because she didn't want to apologize and didn't seem like she sincerely wanted a husband. Brandon felt Taylor had signed up for the show to become a reality TV star and gain more followers on social media.
But Taylor didn't want to give up so easily, so in the latest episode of Married at First Sight's tenth season, she invited Brandon to get a manicure with her at a nail salon.
"The experts matched us for a reason, and maybe I'm not going to close the doors on that yet," Taylor said in a confessional.
Taylor made a peace offering by giving Brandon a card for their one-month anniversary with an apology written inside, but it wasn't enough for Brandon, who told the cameras Taylor had taken the easy way out and he wasn't convinced her apology was genuine.
Taylor acknowledged she just wanted to build a friendship with Brandon but he never let things go and always seemed to think she was attacking him on a personal level.
"I just want to move on with my life. I want to cut all of this and be done with it. This has just been a cluster F and it's stupid," Brandon told Taylor on Wednesday night's broadcast.
Brandon added that Taylor wanting to be friends was "a slap in the face," and so Taylor felt defeated in her relationship.
"My wife is a narcissist. She doesn't see anything wrong and she has a problem with admitting when she's wrong, and I can't be with someone who can't even admit when they are wrong," Brandon told a Diary Cam.
"Here she is making mistake after mistake, and she's not owning up to any of those mistakes."
