Each episode of "Catfish" has its own unique twists and turns, but tonight we saw an unfortunate bit of history repeat itself: another heart crushed. This time, it was hopeful single father Jarrod, whose Facebook-official girlfriend "Abby" turned out to be a 19-year-old named Melissa. We were rooting for the man's happily ever after, but his story turned out to be a case of dreams dashed, and Jarrod was so distraught by the big reveal that he was almost literally knocked off his feet.
"I have a lot of explaining to do, I suppose," Melissa said as she first introduced herself to Jarrod and Nev on her front porch. Despite the shocking blow of her deceit, Jarrod considered her explanation--how she used the fake account as a means to reconstruct her self-esteem--and ultimately realized she was very much the "Abby" he'd come to know. The two decided to stay in touch, and when Nev checked in with the pair a month after their first meeting, Melissa shared that she even planned a trip to Atlanta to visit Jarrod.
