Seriously…with a houseboat & everything! This evening’s episode starts out with some Chris Harrison in the a.m. The Final Five are still in sunny CA when Chris gives the Ladies the dl with a twist…2 One-On-Ones and 1 Group Date with no dreaded Rose to ruin the vibe and it will all take place in Seattle.
The Ladies check into The Fairmont Olympic Hotel abiding in what looks like the Presidential Suite. Hey now! Ty is oh so happy to see his dad and unwilling to let him leave to take Melissa on the town to visit the Space Needle…of all places! Who would’ve thought.
Could it be that for the first time in Bachelor history – the thing that most girls dread the mostess…being stood-up…actually happens & on national tv? Of course not. Melissa is saved by the bell…”ma bell” that is…& the invite that sparks the green-eyed monster for the four ‘stepsisters’…a chill evening at home with Ty.
Melissa brings a change of clothes, but arrives in her little black dress – strapless & fab. She straightens up around the hb, checking out Jason’s digs as Ty is fighting going to sleep. Did she check her watch? Finally Jason makes his entrance & they engage in a lovely evening…setting the theme for the Hometown Interrogatory which each of the Ladies will endure in her alone time with Jason for the next couple of hours.

The Group Date rolls down the river engaging Stephanie, Jillian & Molly. Spoiled Molly keeps on burnin…rollin (dun dun) rollin (dun dun) rollin down the sidewalk during her One-On-One Time with Jason. KISS FM, (aptly titled) interviews Jason as the Ladies watch behind sound proof glass. Later, Jackie & Bender decide to blindfold Jason with a pink boa and play Who’s Who with no breath mints in between!! And Jason scores three for three.
Naomi is thrilled to have the last date before the most emotional Rose Ceremony ever! A sea plane, rock climbing, fireside fondue, and reassurances for this twice burned Bachelor encompass their date and unbeknownst to her, she will have to endure two Interrogatories instead of just one before this evening ends.
Jason’s backporch becomes the Deliberation Room as Chris Harrison knocks on the front door instead of magically appearing out of nowhere at The Mansion. Chris is the listening ear as Jason decides who will walk the plank tonight. [Really hoping Chris remembers his way off the porch without going overboard as Jason gathers himself for The Rose Ceremony.]
Naomi is invited to
the last interrogation spend some One-on One Time with Jason before the 4 Hometowns are decided. It’s Stephanie that ends up without the Bud tonight as tears abound as she & Jason go on & on with their final good-byes. Thankfully, Chris Harrison applies the buzz kill as only he can…abruptly ending their respectful au revoir. Chop chop Steph…the limo is waiting.
Next week…during The Hometowns…Jason will
endure experience no show parents, a dead dove, parental disapproval & a grilling grandma. All in his quest for love. No pressure…The Bachelor…Mondays 8/7c on ABC.
