Excited for Love Island Season 9 Episode 14? Zara will be very frustrated after what happened in the previous episode, we will talk about that in a bit. Then Shaq and Tanya in The Hideaway were doing a lot and everybody was like what is going on? But I’m glad that happened because we need to have some strong couples in the Villa guys. I feel like Tanya and Shaq are the only strong couple in this Villa. Let’s be real, because Ron is playing around games, so it doesn’t make sense.
Tanyel and Kai go here and there. And I think this triangle with Olivia, Zara, and Tom isn’t making any sense either. Will and Jessie are also a strong couple, but they’re not really OG’s. Jesse just came in, so we haven’t seen much of them where we’ve seen Tanya and Shaq from day one. So of course they deserve to go into the highway.
Love Island Season 9 Episode 12 Recap
Before diving into Love Island Season 9 Episode 14, let’s quickly recap the previous Episode. The way everybody’s coming the way everybody is coming for Zara I’m now gonna go mad. Because of the way my head is moving left to right like one clock, I don’t understand, I don’t have the time for why everybody is throwing her digs her way. It just seems to be unnecessary, it doesn’t make any sense.
I don’t know why Aaron is talking because he will be going home expeditiously because he doesn’t have anything going on in this Villa and he just really is a waste of space when it comes to your time. I just don’t know what he is doing here but maybe one day we will find out. This is the mystery, this is the Blues Clues, and this is why we need Scooby-Doo and the gang.
Because there’s no impact, no conversation, no talking on you, whether it’s good or bad. You want people to talk on you, whether it is good or bad if you are in the show. And that’s the police child and they’re on the way to arrest this man and take him back to Australia where he belongs. Because it doesn’t make any sense as to what he is doing here.
But Aaron said about the fact that “Zara’s the girl who talks about all right behind people’s backs because we’ve seen it”. I just felt like it was a very unnecessary quote in my opinion because I feel like isn’t really somebody to really just start drama, she is just somebody who can be reactive.
Does she have to be the dramatic one or is she the one actually wanting to find out what is going on in the villa? And I’m pretty sure she’s not, Lana is the only one who speaks up behind people’s backs all the time as well, so it was very unfortunate.
Zara Needs To Leave Tom
And then for Tom to say that he would pick Zara for her body and not for her face. Zara needs to be released from these shackles of this devil, this man Tom, it’s not necessary, it doesn’t make any sense and I don’t like to see anybody with anybody in the Villa who’s holding them back, holding their potential.
And I feel like in the words of Nene the doors are closed when it comes to this relationship. I feel like throughout that game, she is getting disrespected and being sidelined throughout that game. The faces people are making, the sounds people are making, the eye rolls, the cut quiet kind of digs people are making, I just don’t think it is necessary, unfortunately.
And I feel like you know Zara needs to leave that man and find somebody else in the Villa. Because for you to be saying that “you’re not even going for me for my face, essentially calling me claps. I don’t appreciate that at all”. So I definitely feel like Zara felt weird about that.
Olivia was smiling with a little smugness. I feel like they were just a lot of disrespect that she’s facing and I don’t appreciate the way that these Islanders are sidelining her. It is very annoying because you are in a closed environment and things can really impact you.
Shaq Calls Out Ron
I’m glad that the boys called out Ron because he’s playing games himself for Aaron to quickly pick Zara but you couldn’t even pick your boy around who is talking behind these girls’ backs and can’t even decide which one to pick for.
But I’m glad of the boys, I’m glad Shaq especially called him out for the games that he’s playing. He doesn’t really know what he’s doing, he’s playing the girls. At first, he was even feeling Tanyel but said he was feeling Lana only. Then he was entertaining Ellie.
I’m not really here for this kind of what Ron is doing. And people are saying oh we want them to be exposed during movie night. I’m like “guys relax because movie night really isn’t the last couple of weeks of Love Island, you really would want this guy out before that happens”. So let’s not keep him all the way down to movie night.
So I am intrigued to see what’s going to happen with this whole Lana and Ellie situation. Because Lana made it very clear to him that she is not in a trio, she’s not entertaining that and of course, Ron reassured her because that is what Ron is going to do at that moment in time. Ron is going to reassure somebody, what else would you do if you’re having that conversation, you want to reassure your girl. But for how long is that going to last? That is the real question.
And I don’t think it’s going to last for a very long time, I feel like things are going to break up between Lana and Ron. I don’t think he’s as invested in her. And I feel like Ellie is there to definitely play the game and you know mess things up for sure. So that is going to be interesting to see, but I’m glad that the boys especially Shaq called out Ron because he needed it.
Love Island Season 9 Ratings Are Going Down
The readings are in for the last two episodes and there’s been a slight uptick. It’s at 1.12 million, so it’s a slight increase from 1 million by 100,000 or so. But this is giving the same exact rating guys as in season two of Love Island. So it’s gone it’s quite down.
So I feel for the Islanders in there because they are expecting at least three to four million people watching them and that’s just not happening, number one. Number two, this Love Island rule you can’t post severely impacts these Islanders. I don’t know if you guys have realized it, but they are coming out with 45k to 50k likes when it comes to engagement.
Of course, they would want a lot more so it’s a bit of a shame that they can’t experience that. And had they will post every single day, it definitely would have increased their engagement. So it definitely is a big kick in them and I just don’t feel like it’s fair on these Islanders. Now we will discuss when will Episode 14 of Love Island Season 9 will release.
Love Island Season 9 Episode 14 Release Date & Preview
Love Island Season 9 Episode 14 will release on 29 January 2023 on ITV2. In the Sunday episode, we will get to meet a new Bombshell. Also, Zara’s clearly very frustrated and I’m so sad that this is how it’s going to pan out because I already know the UK public. If there’s a vote she’s going to be at the bottom, I don’t know if she’s going to be saved because her lifeline Tom is sewing his seeds everywhere, and yeah it’s sad. I want her to explore options, but there are no options right now to explore. I hope she makes it to Casa, I want to see Zara around, I do but it looks like our time is gonna be coming up real soon.
