Warning: This post contains potential spoilers for the Married At First Sight finale episode. Proceed with caution.

Well folks, we’ve almost made it through another wild season of Married At First Sight. For the past eight weeks, our lives have been consumed by fake marriages, multiple cheating scandals and lots of glorious drama.

And tonight it’s finally time for the highly anticipated reunion special, where all the past contestants we completely forgot about will return to reminisce about all the good ole’ times and – most importantly – dish all the dirt.

Yep, it will be an hour and a half of pure manufactured drama. And we can not wait.

Watch the trailer for tonight’s Married At First Sight reunion grand finale. Post continues below.

But because we’re feeling impatient, we decided to do some serious digging and round up everything that is rumoured to go down.

And it looks like we’ll finally get some long-awaited answers about what really happened between the couples.

Here’s everything we know about the MAFS finale all in one place.

The three couples that arrived at the reunion together.

The reunion may be tonight, but it looks like we already know which couples continued their relationships outside the social experiment.

In paparazzi photos published by the Daily Mail, only three couples were seen arriving to film the final episode together.

The three couples who arrived together at the reunion, which was filmed seven weeks after the final vow ceremonies, included Lizzie and Seb, Stacey and Michael, and Aleks and Ivan.

Of course, that’s not an indication of which couples are still currently together.

Posting to her Instagram Stories last week, Stacey made it clear that she’s no longer dating Michael.

In fact, when asked if she would consider getting back together with Michael, Stacey responded that she would rather “swallow acid and die”.

Michael also told Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny last week that his relationship with Stacey ended at the hotel after the dinner party.

“I said we all make mistakes, what I can live with is, I can live with the truth but I can’t live with a lie. She continued to tell me that it never happened, I go there is too much doubt for me to continue in this catastrophe so let’s just have a hug and I’ll see you later,” Michael said.

“She goes ‘I don’t need to hug you’. I was like wow okay, you can be bitter we don’t need to be anything, whatever. At the end of the day, I should be one sort of stamping my feet and saying, ‘I’m the victim, I’m the victim.’”

As for Aleks and Ivan, it seems things may have fizzled out. Posting to TikTok (yes, really), Aleks uploaded a video, which is tagged as the #exboyfriendchallenge.

In the video, Aleks mouthed the words to a recorded track: “Got a text from my ex the other day that said he missed me. I said, ‘I’m sorry, I can’t talk right now I’m at a funeral.’ He said, ‘Oh my god, who died?’ I said, ‘My feelings for you did, bye f**ker.'”

Was it an innocent TikTok trend or an indication that Ivan and Aleks are no longer together? Who knows. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As for Lizzie and Seb, the rumours continue to roll in thick and fast. While some claim the couple are no longer together, other rumours suggest the couple are still going strong. (We have our fingers crossed for the latter, pls).

Lizzie quits the show and goes back home to Newcastle by herself before the reunion.

According to some rumours, Lizzie and Seb (aka the last remaining hope of this season) don’t last until the reunion special.

The Daily Mail has obtained images that show Lizzie leaving the MAFS apartments with her belongings and driving to her hometown of Newcastle in late November, just days before the final vows.

She was helped by a female producer, but no camera crew filmed as she left.

Photos show that not long after her car left, the same female producer was with Seb, who then took off to walk around Sydney for about an hour.

According to the publication, Seb and Lizzie then returned to film their final vows days later on December 3, and the reunion special in January.

Lizzie will announce her pregnancy.

To make matters even more confusing, there’s also a rumour floating around that Lizzie and Seb will announce their pregnancy (???) at tonight’s reunion.

Yep, we can’t keep up either. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

“We’re all waiting with anticipation,” a friend of the pair reportedly told Woman’s Day.

“Their relationship has gone from strength to strength and starting a family has certainly been at the forefront of Lizzie’s mind for some time.”

Interesting.

Mikey was sent threatening messages.

It has been reported that Mikey filed a police report last month after producers discovered threatening messages that had been sent to Mikey’s social media accounts. It has been reported that the messages may have been associated with a bikie gang.

As a result of the messages, which included Mikey’s address being leaked online, Mikey was moved to a Sydney hotel by producers.

Following the reports, Stacey, who was previously engaged to Adelaide Rebels bike member Shane Smith, told Woman’s Day she believes the allegations are a well-timed attack.

“This is an absolute attack on bikies and an attempt to discredit me,” Stacey claimed.

“I don’t think it’s a coincidence Mikey is being caught up in a bikie-related drama this close to the reunion airing.”

Stacey supposedly confronts Natasha about hooking up with Mikey’s dad.

That’s right, ANOTHER relationship scandal is supposedly brought up at the reunion special.

Earlier this month, Stacey told New Idea that Mikey told her that Natasha had supposedly hooked up with his dad.

“Mikey said, ‘I’m pretty sure [Natasha] hooked up with my dad (or at least) I’m pretty sure she’s hooking up with my dad’,” said Stacey.

Stacey also told the publication that she confronted Natasha about the hook up in front of the entire cast and crew at the reunion.

“When Natasha started coming at me, I said ‘hold on a minute … [Mikey] told me you slept with his dad.'”

Apparently the two brides then had a heated conversation.

Mikey also confirmed the rumour is addressed at the reunion, but he denies the accusation is true.

“Stacey and Natasha, now they’re best friends, but they weren’t friends during the show. This is peak season for throwing people under the bus, and obviously they’ve come together and it looks like they’ve come up with this story,” he told Fitzy and Wippa.

It turns out Mikey’s dad wasn’t too pleased about the rumour either.

“He’s not happy about it, he’s like ‘why am I getting involved in this stuff’, he was against me doing it in the first place, the last thing I want to do is get my family involved… He would never do something like that, it would be completely weird, but it’s just so far fetched.”

Hopefully, we can get to the bottom of exactly what happens during the episode.
