This is a spoiler-free review of Season 4 of Love Is Blind. However, to compare it to previous seasons I do mention previous seasons’ events so if you are not up to date on those you may not want to read this review.

If you watch the first season of Love Is Blind you’ll feel the true innocence of the show. People come ready to love and find marriage. As seasons progress you lose that innocence and instead it’s become more and more explosive as personalities clash, new relationships form, and people make the fast track to the alter in a way that could easily be like a derailing train that just could come off the tracks at any moment.

Love Is Blind forces a group of women and men to converse through a wall in hopes of establishing and deepening a relationship to the point of engagement. After the engagement, they reintegrate into their world, where the pressure of life (work, family, friends, etc) could potentially end their engagements.To that degree, the fourth season is the wildest yet; and if you think you know the formula of this show, you’re in for a wild adjustment as the show takes these couples on the wildest ride yet. From the first episode to the heart-racing last we are treated to a series of couples that truly are put to the test.


The proverbial question behind the show is, can couples start a relationship with no physical interaction and make it to the altar? For some people, it can; for others, the answer is more complicated.

Something Love Is Blind handles well is that this is not a morally simple answer. As human beings we’re complex with a variety of feelings and intense emotions; so in the fourth season there’s a large number of wild moments that dare I say no one would predict but also you see that people are making decisions, and as misguided as they are, they’re all based on true human emotion. Sure there are irrational decisions that make you want to pull your hair out, but those all come from places of insecurity. The show does a great job of highlighting this and not making people out to simply be the ‘villain’.

You can argue whether Love Is truly blind, but I think the show is ultimately willing to confess that it’s not always, but there’s always that possibility.


I preferred Season 4 to 3 as it provided more angles to everyone’s behavior, whereas Season 3 blindsided many audience members with cast decisions (such as Bartise or Zanab saying ‘No’ at the Alter). Season 4 is more dramatic and chaotic, but it “shows its work” more, making the finale feel more natural and less of a surprise.

Like Season 3, Season 4 tends to put more of the drama on the post-pods dating segments, which makes more sense and arguably is more interesting. Yes, there’s still drama in the pods, but they don’t hold a candle to the honeymoon period in Mexico and later the lives they settle into in Seattle.

I do appreciate that the men on Season 4 stepped it up a bit. In Season 3, the men were all having side eyes for other women, saying things they shouldn’t, having just generally awful opinions on things, and just being REALLY hard to root for. The men in this season approach things with a healthier mindset. Are they perfect? No. However, they feel more real than in previous seasons, which made it good for when the chaos started to spill into the show. We didn’t need vilified men on the show for when things go haywire, and I’m glad the show brought on men with some decent core values.


While this season takes things in a wilder direction than you’ve ever seen, it’s rooted in real human emotions and that keeps it from feeling truly artificial. You root for these couples and feel defeated when they don’t work, but that’s just like real life. that’s why millions of people tune into this show, and undoubtedly millions more will tune in for this season as well. If you like the Love Is Blind formula, there’s enough here to keep you engaged but also enough changes to make you feel like it’s staying fresh and exciting.
