Reality TV fans want a happy ending for Bliss. Love Is Blind is not for the faint of heart, and we're starting to feel a little protective over our hopeful romantic

The season 4 cast of Love Is Blind has officially entered the pods and one male contestant, the eccentric criminal defense attorney Zack Goytowski, finds comfort and trust in fellow dater Bliss Poureetezadi. The two seem to be on the same page and develop a deep connection...but there was just one problem: Irina Solomonova

How did Irina try to come between the couple and why are Love is Blind viewers rallying around Bliss? Here's what went down!

*Warning: spoilers are obviously ahead!*

What happened between Zack and Bliss, 'Love is Blind' season 4 daters?

While yes, it's common—and expected—for the Love Is Blind cast to form a connection with more than one person, viewers were not pleased about the dynamic Irina created amongst the other daters. Irina and cast mate Micah Lussier laughed at the other girls' vulnerable moments and Irina needled Bliss for baking cupcakes for Zack's birthday. Bliss carried on amicably (though understandably irritated). Though she, too, was responsible for gossiping to Zack about her competitor, she did try to make peace with Irina and move forward.

We all felt Bliss' sincerity, which is why our hearts broke when Zack ultimately chose Irina, who was downright rude from the moment they met face-to-face. Their honeymoon was so disastrous that everyone began asking, "Did Irina leave Love Is Blind early?" She ignored Zack and practically flinched every time he was near her. 

"It's been absolutely horrible," Zack revealed during their honeymoon. "It's been f***ing horrible." Karma?

Twitter rallies around Bliss, 'Love Is Blind' fan favorite:

It didn't take long for the internet to come to Bliss' defense and pick apart Irina (and Micah) for their insensitivity. All the women from seasons past formed a close connection, but these two are definitely shaking up the friend dynamic this time around.

Do Zack and Bliss get back together?

Remember how this season teases that one bachelor who has two proposals? Guess who does the honors! Eventually, Zack and Bliss find their way back to one another mid-way through the season. Although Bliss' guard is understandably up, she does seem to relax with each passing date, and eventually, she accepts Zack's proposal. 

"I'm engaged to Zack," Bliss says in a confessional. "Life is weird. It's exciting and shocking. I feel so cheesy saying this, but I knew that he was my person from just hearing him—our first date."

In an interview with People, she was frank about the reasons she decided to take him back. 

"Going into this, I really was open to having a conversation because of the feelings that I had for him and because of the person that he showed me that he was," she told the outlet. "He never gave me any reason to not have faith in him and believe in him. He was always extremely honest with me – sometimes to a fault, in the pods. And so, everything that we discussed just made me really believe in him."

Here's hoping they'll be able to make things work. 

Love Is Blind season 4 is currently streaming on Netflix. Here's the schedule for all of the upcoming Love Is Blind season 4 episodes. Be sure to check out other shows like Love Is Blind, too.
