I’ve seen so many episodes of this show already (in a very short space of time), but I don’t think any of them made me as happy as this one did. Usually, the episode shows a person whose been catfished by someone, and then there is a heck of a lot of drama and suckiness. I mean, all the lying and betrayal is bound to end badly. That’s the point of the show, isn’t it? To teach us all how awful catfishing someone is? Also, gotta admit, all of this drama is pretty addictive in a weird way. I really love waiting to see the big reveal and everyone’s reactions to it, all quite the roller coaster ride of emotions. Anyways, this episode is so different from all that (link to video at the end of this post). This time, both of them catfished each other! Whaaat?
The show starts out with Kya reaching out to Nev and Max, saying that she is in love with a guy she met online and catfished. Apparently when she came clean with Alyx, the news didn’t derail anything and they kept talking. Thus, the email to Catfish. Little did Kya know, Alyx had some secrets of his own. It turned out that Alyx was actually Dani, an FTM transgender. Long story short, none of all this excitement changed the couples’ feelings for each another at all! I was so blown away by Kya, such a gentle and empathetic person, actually reminds me a lot of my wife to be honest. She is just as in love with Dani when she finds out the truth about everything, saying that he is still her boyfriend and it doesn’t matter what he looks like. Dani is overjoyed about this, and the feeling is very mutual. Their unconditional love for each other is so inspiring, exactly what they say only happens “in the movies”. Their feelings are practically tangible even through the TV screen. Gen and I were speechless, a super touching story.
