Who has remained friendly? Who can't stand being in the same room? All will be revealed in the hour-long special that promises to be filled with dramatic and unexpected moments.

All season long Nev and Max took viewers on a deeply personal journey inside the stories of young people as their online-only romantic relationships collided with first-time, real-life encounters. In the season finale, lovesick Mike has met Felicia on a dating website and has dreams of meeting his paramour in person. Unfortunately, when they finally make plans to meet, Felicia stands Mike up. Mike really cares about Felicia but is now nervous that she is keeping secrets and wonders if he should move on. For a sneak peek, click here.
