We braced ourselves for a bumpy Love Is Blind season 3 reunion, and we were not disappointed. 

Now that we've learned who gets married in Love Is Blind season 3 and who walks away from their betrotheds, we're processing the outcomes, bot the good and the bad. Yes, there were success stories, but there was also heartbreak along the way.

So how are the Love Is Blind season 3 couples today? What bombshells did we learn from the filming? There's plenty to unpack. 


'Love Is Blind' season 3 reunion

Netflix teases a few short clips from the season 3 reunion and leaves a lot of room for us to guess about possible scenarios. We hear cries (Nancy), we're waiting for a confession from Raven and Alexa looks like she's just. not. having. it. 

Given that this is what we had to go with, you see why we were on edge!

Episode 11 appears ahead of the reunion on November 9 and fills us on in on everyone's status. Here's a quick recap: 

Raven and SK are still together, though they did not get married at the end of episode 10. 

"We’ve been working on it,” she revealed to US Weeklyabout their relationship. “And he’s just such a beautiful person, so we’ve been giving each other patience. It’s been great."

Alexa and Brennon, the first pair to get engaged on the season, were in love seemingly immediately, and managed to say "I do." So did Colleen and Matt, despite their shaky ground. (He was not pleased when Colleen expressed interest in Cole post-pods.)

But perhaps the couple that has gotten the most attention is Bartise and Nancy due to their ups and downs. Between different political opinions, his interest in Raven and her distrust, things were not on solid ground.

"As it's diminishing the emotional connection we developed in the pods, the physical attraction is just not really there for me anymore," he revealed to cameras earlier in the season. 

 Does Bartise say 'yes' in Love Is Blind? No, he does not go through with the union, and neither do Zanab and Cole. She began with a sweet speech at the altar, which later turned into a very intense accusation. 

"You have disrespected me, you have insulted me, you have critiqued me. And for what it's worth, you have single-handedly shattered my self-confidence."

After an intense finale, the energy was equally as cringey when the cast sat down with hosts Vanessa and Nick Lachey to answer their burning Q's.

Nancy and Bartise, as well as Zanab and Cole, were on very bitter terms. We learned that Bartise had a fling shortly after calling it quits with Nancy, and the timing did not sit right with her. Zanab threw accusations at Cole—the fact that he had gotten a girl's number at his bachelor party and that he had critiqued what she ate, both of which he denied. (When you catch a deleted scene, you'll see what Zanab means about the latter.) Oh, and it seemed a little odd that Matt and Colleen are not currently living together, though they're man and wife. Anyone else think that's odd?

Then, to conclude a bitter get-together, Vanessa Lachey wishes everyone luck and reveals that Auntie V and Uncle Nick are patiently waiting for the first Love Is Blind baby. No pressure, though!

Well, things didn't necessarily go according to plan for everyone, but here's hoping all couples find a happy ending on Love Is Blind season 4, right? Positive thoughts, folks.
