"Taylor how have your hopes for where you'd be one month in matched up with the reality of where you are now?" host Jamie Otis asked on the March 11 broadcast of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered on Lifetime.

And then Taylor said, "It's just hard, like, 'Yo, this is really what I went through?'"
"But yeah, I'm sorry. [My crying] will be over in a second," she noted.
Taylor fanned her face and then said, "Honestly, it's really sad. I came into this knowing it was going to be a lot of fun. It's just not what I was expecting, so I'm hoping that, you know, Brandon and I can really find that friendship, find that fun."
Taylor hoped she and Brandon could "just have fun with this" because they only had a few weeks left of the Married at First Sight experiment until "Decision Day," when each of the five couples must decide whether they'd like to stay married or get divorced.
"Let's get to know each other, try to put the past in the past, and just finally move forward on a good note," Taylor suggested, as if Brandon was right in front of her.
Pastor Cal chimed in and said, "That would be great," before Jamie pointed out she was still hopeful Brandon and Taylor's marriage could work out.
But on Brandon's side of things, he was skeptical of Taylor's intentions because she had allegedly admitted she had wanted to be on a reality TV show for a while. Taylor allegedly told Brandon that she was close to being cast on Temptation Island, for example,but things didn't work out due to bad timing.
Not only did Brandon disapprove of Taylor's constant phone use and large social-media following, but Taylor also posted a video on Instagram Stories he ultimately found "disrespectful" and "disgusting."
Taylor claimed in the video she was single and looking for a man who could meet her "minimal" requirements, which included someone who's 6'3" or taller, so 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 Sight expert Dr. Pepper Schwartz.
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 he was being attacked 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 last week'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."
