With under one week to go until "Decision Day," Taylor and Brandon attempted to work through their issues privately and off-camera since Brandon had a big problem with Married at First Sight production and refused to be filmed ever since the couples' retreat.
While Taylor maintained "hope" her marriage would continue after "Decision Day" and she and Brandon would choose to stay together, she wasn't even sure if Brandon was going to show up to the final meeting with show experts Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Dr. Viviana Coles and Pastor Calvin Roberson.
"Taylor, I've got to know -- where is your head at going into this final decision?" host Jamie Otis asked during the April 8 broadcast of Lifetime's Married at First Sight: Unfiltered.
"It's really hard to find pros, like, I've been very hopeful, but I mean, I have a never-ending list of cons," Taylor said with a laugh.
"You don't have to go through your bullet points," Jamie noted while laughing.
"Yeah, no, I don't really want to go through it," Taylor said.
While the conversation started out light, Taylor began choking back her tears.
"You know, it's just, like, I just really wanted to be married, you know?" Taylor said.
As she started to cry, Taylor continued, "I just really wanted to be married. I really wanted to have a successful relationship. I wanted a best friend. I wanted a partner. I wanted to maybe meet the father of my children."
"I've been so respectful of your panic attacks that I've tried to hide things from the camera this whole time just so that I can help you," Taylor said, as if she was talking to Brandon.
"I see him struggling. I see him struggling and I see how this is affecting him."
"But it's just, like, you can't hurt me when I'm trying to help you! And it's just so hard," Taylor exclaimed.
Taylor and Brandon's relationship seemed destined for happiness and longevity in the first week of their arranged marriage on Married at First Sight, but Brandon grew increasingly more frustrated with cameras following him around, and he often took that anger out on Taylor.
Brandon therefore lashed out at production and Taylor at the end of their honeymoon in Panama, and the couple could seemingly never recover.
Taylor said she felt disrespected on a daily basis by Brandon's lack of effort and desire to spend time with her, but Brandon believed Taylor wasn't really ready or willing to be a wife.
Brandon's paranoia regarding the documentation part of the process also bled into his relationship; he grew to believe Taylor had only signed up to marry at first sight for more social-media followers and to become a reality TV star.
The pair had their fair share of arguments, but tension heightened during the couples' retreat when Brandon essentially quit the show and insisted he was done with Taylor and their relationship after she spent the night in a hotel with friends.
Not only did Brandon yell and swear at Taylor, but he also had a showdown with a producer named Leif. After smugly removing his microphone to make a statement, Brandon taunted and berated Leif.
Brandon chose to leave the couples' retreat early and never return, but Taylor later informed viewers she and her husband reconciled and tried to get their relationship back on track once they returned home.
