Aaliyah needs a closer look at Alicia.
Arm yourself with some protective gloves, friends: This “Catfish” bites. On tonight’s episode, a high school senior named Aaliyah got her heart broken when she finally met the person whom she considered her first real love, and quickly discovered she’d been played. Alicia wasn’t shy about admitting her deception as soon as she came face-to-face with Aaliyah, and added insult to injury when she told Aaliyah point blank that she was straight and had no romantic interest in her at all. Yikes.
After some prodding, Nev and Max managed to get through to Alicia and tap into the motive behind her con, but for the first few minutes, Alicia’s reveal was painful to watch, and Aaliyah’s resultant pain was heart-wrenching. See how Alicia slowly broke Aaliyah down in this series of GIFs.
