Episode 3038: Lindsay and Brant
Trust is the most important thing in a marriage and one of the things that was missing from Lindsay and Brant’s relationship. After hearing about Lindsay kissing his friend, Brant still loved his wife, but could not trust her. And Lindsay could not forgive herself. If you look at her body language during the show when we’re watching the evidence, you can see the shame and remorse on her face. She couldn’t even make eye contact with Brant.
The broken glass challenge gave Lindsay and Brant a chance at a fresh start. They thought that the glass was real and were ready to cross it no matter what. It was an important moment for Brant because Lindsay grabbed his hand and led him across. Brant really felt that Lindsay would always be there for him and was impressed as to what lengths she would go to redeem herself.
As for Brant’s anger, the hypnosis challenge was one that no one expected. Brant was worried that the hypnotist would make him run around and cluck like a chicken, but what happened was she took him back through his childhood to explore and exorcise the anger he had felt as a boy. The idea is that if Brant was able to let go of those feelings from the past, he’d be better able to cope with the present and the future. And as you saw on the show, he went from skeptic to believer in just one session!
