It’s the beginning of day 2 at Marriage Boot Camp and the tension in the house is brewing. After Memphitz was exposed for using a hall pass during a surprise talk show hosted by Montel Williams, Toya’s anger festers. Meanwhile, Tara and Dean are interrogated at the breakfast table as the missing couple from day 1, who had tip toed into mansion in the middle of the night, has some explaining to do. As speculation grows around Tara and Dean, the couples are called into the boot camp room for the first drill. The women and men are separated where they must make a dating profile for their partners, highlighting their deal-breaking habits. But do these habits really matter? Unbeknownst to the couples, they will find out in the next drill when hit with a horrifying twist. While the couples await the next exercise, a paranoid Tara, who fears the wrath of the tabloids, storms off when asked to open up about her life. The couples go into shock when they find themselves in a morgue and are forced to face the death of their partner to realize what really matters. They are instructed to identify their loved one’s body and read a goodbye letter that entails the hurtful words they used in the dating profiles they had created in the first drill. Are these the last words they want their partner to hear? Adam, aka Dr. Doom, faces his biggest fear as he says goodbye to Lisa. Lorenzo and Memphitz break down into tears when the toe tag on their partner’s foot becomes too real. But Toya struggles to reciprocate the love due to the demons in her past. Cody is taken off guard when Michelle tells him he is too vein. And when Tara enters the morbid site, she shuts down and refuses to go through with the drill causing malice in the house. As day 2 comes to an end, the couples are ambushed by an unexpected guest who puts the couples on blast. Tara becomes distressed about opening up at boot camp and storms off again while Cody and Michelle are sent to their room for a one on one with Directors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll, revealing a relationship far from paradise…
