Excited for Love Island Season 9 Episode 22? Love Island producers I would like you guys to please hear me out… “we do not care for Olivia Island”. If anything, the more you give us Olivia Island, the more we hate her. She’s not the main character, not even close. But The way episode 21 was so freaking painful to watch. It was a filler episode, it was very boring. However, the end was very satisfying, so it’s fine.
As it’s any surprise to anyone, the ladies decided to keep Kai and dump Aaron and Spencer. Sad for Spencer because he was just starting to form something with Tanyel. But great for us, because we have finally been released from the shackles that are Aaron. As soon as Zara leaves, this whole unfinished business is miraculously finished between uh Olivia and Tom, which is annoying. But they have a little hug on the stairs and I was like “oh save it”.
Olivia is continuing with her bad mind and bad vibe behavior, talking about Tanyel behind her back. We’re gonna get to that later on in the episode near the end. But I just want to put a precursor in there so that you know this is where in the timeline it happened.
Love Island Season 9 Episode 22 Recap
Before diving into Love Island Season 9 Episode 22, let’s quickly recap the previous Episode. In the morning debrief, all parties involved in this love triangle, us included, have clearly had enough. And there Tom was being the morality police. We know things are bad when the residential F boy is calling somebody else out on their bad behavior. Kai off the heels of almost being eliminated, which we knew he was gonna go, he’s like “you know, I’m realizing that when I’m with you, I’m the happiest”.
On her own, Olivia pisses me off. When she was in her unfinished business saga, she pissed me off even more. Because you knew this girl was not serious, you know she just had a bone to pick with Zara. Whatever fine, now she’s with this man who equally pisses me off on his own and they are together… I’ve never reached such a level of annoyance in my life unless we’re talking about Ron
When it comes to Love Island, this is peak annoyance, these two just piss me off. But I’m so glad that they’re gonna come together and unite. Because you guys in the United Kingdom better unite the kingdom and vote them off, thank you very much.
Ron, y’all know I don’t want to talk about him, but we have to because it’s part of the show. So Ron believes that the tests that he has gone through have made his connection with Lana even stronger. Truthfully, I’m not gonna waste my breath on him, so we are moving on.
Jordan and Ellie are in the kitchen, and this girl’s still trying to gauge where this man is because she wants him. To me, Jordan had so much potential. I didn’t know if he was boring or if he was just laid back. I don’t want to say everybody with a calm personality has no personality. But my God Jordan is failing me.
Even Ellie is failing me, she came in with the fire “I’m gonna step on toes, I’m gonna do this that” and she did not do well except for her little Terrace Rendezvous, which did spark some drama which really was catalyzed by Zara. But still she added to that storyline, so let me not Hound on her too much. But Jordan’s not adding what I thought he would add.
Ron, Lana, And Casey Triangle
Ron has now had the 15th, 16th come to Jesus moment, saying that his life being on the line in the Villa has made him realize how much he feels and cares for and likes Lana. And Lana honestly at this point I’m just like “girl are you a glutton for punishment? Dealing with this man, you must be a glutton for punishment” I’m losing sympathy if there’s any more to give to Lana.
Wasn’t this the same man that once said to Samie that it would not bother him if she left? But now he’s talking about “oh if I would have gone, I don’t know what I would have done in the blah blah blah”. Please, when it was her life on the line, you couldn’t give two shits, you could not care less and now you care.
Lana then talks to Casey, who is actually having a hard time with the whole triangle thing, because he actually likes the girl.
Casey and Samie they’re not adding a lot of fire, but they are definitely stoking it a little bit. So yeah, you better throw shade at Ron because it is absolutely true, you don’t need to make all these blunders to realize “oh I do have feelings for you”. No, there’s no need for that.
Take Shaq for example, I know a lot of y’all are still skeptical, but let’s just take his actions for what they are. The man hasn’t had to do all this “oh mistake, oh test, oh whatever” to realize that he likes Tanya. Shaq just likes Tanya and follows that emotion.
If something else comes in that is just astronomically better than what he’s got going on, I could see him really making a strong decision and cutting that for good to explore something else. Maybe not, because people do some craziness in this Villa. But I feel like he would be more inclined to do that and I get the same kind of vibe from Casey, so far.
Casey is like if it’s not working between them, he is not gonna hide behind “oh it’s a test, oh you never know… oh did it…”. No just want to be over there, he doesn’t want to be here anymore. But as of right now, he wants to be here. So, Casey, I stand with you, my guy.
Tom, for the first time in his Love Island career, has admitted to one woman that he wants to put in all his effort. It’s the Redemption story for me, I said “am I on Tom’s side? What is going on with Tom? He has been very subdued the last few days, he’s been taking his time with Samie, building a connection.
I mean, haven’t really heard them talk about anything substantial. But they seem to have a connection, so alright, if it works for you, it works for me. I feel like right now, his interest is fully in her because there are no other options. But we’ll see, I mean personally, I want better for Samie. But if better is not coming, stick with this man so we could keep you in The Villa.
In the evening Ron says to Kai that if Lana chooses Casey, then it’s done. Ron, you can gallivant all day, sowing your seeds all throughout this South African Terrain and Lana should just take you back whenever you’re ready. But if Lana decides to pursue something then “oh it’s over, we’re done”.
Y’all know those men who go on a cheating spree and the woman takes them back time and time again. But if she so happens to even look at another man’s direction, this man kicks off as if she then castrated him. Ron is that kind of man, that is some scary business with him. Now we will discuss when will Episode 22 of Love Island Season 9 will release.
Love Island Season 9 Episode 22 Release Date & Preview
Love Island Season 9 Episode 22 will release on 6 February 2023 on ITV2. We saw recoupling at the end of episode 21 and, of course, we’re gonna start with the obvious Jessie picks Will, Tanya picks Shaq, Ellie picks Jordan, Samie picks Tom, and Olivia picks Kai. And then here I was thinking they were gonna leave us on a cliffhanger, but no they didn’t, Lana picks Casey. In the same way, we were free at last from Aaron, we are free at last from Ron. I mean he’s not dumped, I don’t know what’s going to happen with him.
But we are free at last from the just, the entitlement, the triangle. I hope that every single person who has had their two cents about Ron has really permeated Lana’s mind and she leaves that man for good, it’s wishful thinking, truly. But I hope to God that it has permeated in her mind as she sticks to this decision. Let’s see how Ron reacts to Lana not picking him. Also, there will be a challenge called “Ladiators” which will be crazy and fun.
