Nicely, it nonetheless hasn’t occurred, Bachelor Nation: Colton Underwood has but to leap that freakin’ fence on The Bachelor. Nevertheless, he did have 4 very awkward hometown dates throughout the newest episode. Let’s dive in, we could?
Spoilers for The Bachelor forward!
For probably the most half, this episode appeared to be all about establishing two issues: that Colton get the “blessing” to marry every of the 4 remaining ladies from their fathers – are we actually nonetheless treating ladies like cattle with this historic custom? Come on – and acquire verbal affirmation from stated ladies that they are “falling in love with” him too. For sure, Colton’s journey to the hometowns of Tayshia, Cassie, Hannah G., and Caelynn did not all go as deliberate. Moderately than being welcomed into every of the households, his interactions principally concerned having deeply awkward chats with a bunch of dads who clearly do not assume a lot of him, as the women concurrently gossiped, cried, and guaranteed their family members that he is the actual deal in sparsely adorned dwelling rooms out of earshot.
Whereas Tayshia’s father had the road of the episode – “You’ll be able to’t microwave relationships” – it was Cassie’s dad who actually could not deliver himself to offer Colton his permission to marry his daughter (“Colton appeared like a . . . man”), setting off a sequence of occasions that may little question result in Colton hopping over that fence within the subsequent episode.
Colton and Cassie met up in her hometown of Huntington Seashore, CA, and she or he tried to offer him a browsing lesson, the place he worn out again and again. However who would’ve thought the most important wipeout would occur afterward at Cassie’s household dinner? (Everybody. All of us did.) Regardless of describing Cassie as “the right stability of attractive and cute” – Colton WOULD quote Loopy Silly Love on this present – her household was lower than impressed.
Cassie and her sister had a really teary-eyed chat about whether or not or not she’s able to get engaged, and she or he stated she’s not, however that she will see herself “getting there.” Cassie’s mom appeared to love Colton for probably the most half however needs her daughter to have extra time. Her father echoed Cassie’s mother’s sentiments and appeared notably rankled by the truth that Colton is off professing his love to 3 different ladies and their households. He informed Cassie that “it isn’t like shopping for a brand new automotive” and that Colton “provides [him] some pause.”
Finally, her dad could not give Colton his blessing for Cassie’s hand in marriage. Cassie additionally ended the night time confused and did not inform Colton she was falling in love with him like each different lady had. In typical Colton style, he flashed her some dissatisfied pet eyes and skulked right into a ready SUV.
The top of the episode noticed him needing to make an enormous determination concerning the ultimate 4 ladies left within the competitors following their dates. Tayshia, Hannah, and Caelynn’s hometowns all went fairly nicely in comparison with Cassie’s, which was why it got here as such a shock that the latter was who Colton determined to remove. (I imply, not as TOO a lot of a shock, although, since Cassie has been the entrance runner all alongside).
After Colton revealed he was choosing Cassie over Caelynn, the previous magnificence queen leaned over to Cassie and whispered, “Bye, good friend. Get engaged.” Type of a bizarre factor to say to your competitors whenever you’ve simply been dumped by the man you are in love with, no? Particularly when each of you simply acquired executed fielding criticism from different women in the home that you simply’re there for the incorrect causes? I digress.
So the place does that depart us? Caelynn is sobbing her means house in an SUV someplace, a fence is on the market ready to be jumped, and Colton nonetheless does not appear to have a transparent concept of what he needs. Luckily, Bachelor Nation has no scarcity of opinions on the entire state of affairs, which you’ll be able to take a look at after the leap.
