Here's a recap of the 10/17/15 episode of 90 Day Fiance:
Alexei & Loren
Alexei & Loren met with her parents, who seemed happy for them but concerned about the situation. Living with each other, and her parents, could cause quite a strain.
Later, Alexei stated that he'd like the pair to get their own place. Alexei seemed concerned about his adjustment, especially living with Loren's parents. At this point, Alexei hadn't even been approved for his visa.
Mark & Nikki
Mark made a big deal about Nikki touching the window of his car. She joked about it, but he was very serious about that being a big deal. Mark said he might find out that Nikki's not as well rounded as he thought, and somewhat immature. Well yeah, she's 19! He said he'd want her to be close with Elise, his daughter.
Mark showed Nikki the beautiful view from the window of his home. Nikki approved of the home. He offered a Nikki a room of her own, but she preferred to share his room. Nikki noticed a picture of Mark and his ex-wife, and said it made her feel sad. She seemed to genuinely be smitten with Mark, despite the age difference.
Mark changed the pictures from his ex-wife's to pictures of Nikki. The pair prepared to spend time with Mark's daughter. Nikki said it's important for Elise to like her, and it'll be hard to stay if Elise doesn't accept her.
Kyle & Noon
Kyle, 28 and Noon, 25 were next. He's a bartender from New Orleans, she's from Thailand. Kyle lives in a messy home with his best friend. He was ready to step it up for this woman that he'd met on social media.
Privacy would be an issue because his roommate Bryan likes to walk around naked, and you have to walk through one bedroom to get to another.
Kyle went to pick up Noon from the airport. The pair embraced, and both were clearly happy. Noon was honest - she didn't want to live in America, but she's here to be with Kyle. He will do whatever it takes to make her happy.
Josh & Aleksandra
Aleksandra would be staying with Josh's grandma since they have to live separately before marriage. The houses are close by, so that's good. But she'll have a curfew.
Aleksandra's birthday had just passed, so Josh planned a family birthday party for her. She was asked how Russian weddings work. She said they drink a lot of alcohol, which didn't sit well with Josh's family. Hopefully that didn't reflect badly on Aleksandra, who was concerned about making a good impression.
The pair spent the next day at a restaurant. Aleksandra tried to pick an outfit but had to try to find one that was conservative, since many of her clothes were from when she was a dancer. Aleksandra, though Mormon now, felt insecure about her past, which she felt was on the wrong path. Fortunately, she is now committed to changing and wants Josh's family to like her.
Melanie & Devar
Melanie flew to Jamaica to help Devar pack. He said he'd miss his family a lot, but he seemed excited to becoming to the US. However, he seemed surprised that there was no beach near where he'd live and he could spear fish in the lake. He had concerns about Melanie's family, including her son Hunter, liking him.
They arrived at Melanie's house to meet Melanie's mom, friends and son. Devar got a very warm welcome. Hunter gave him a football (he didn't recognize what it was!) and the pair embraced. Devar said he would be Hunter's mentor. Devar noted that he didn't have hot water at home, so the showers in America will be a nice change!
