And then there were five. There were supposed to be six ladies going to Seattle – but Jason chose not to lead the ladies on and did not give out the 6th rose.
This week’s episode is a surprise visit to Jason’s hometown of Seattle – giving the 5 remaining ladies a chance to check out their potential future home. Jason takes one woman on a romantic one-on-one date on a houseboat and escorts three of the bachelorettes on a ferry ride around Seattle and then to a revealing live radio interview. On the final crucial individual date, Jason chooses one of the ladies to take a flight on a seaplane over Seattle before sharing some intimate alone time together.
Still unsure of his decision, Jason pays a surprise visit to the ladies’ hotel and pulls one woman aside for a heart-to-heart talk. Then at the rose ceremony, Jason breaks the rules and seeks out another bachelorette for a final talk. In the end, he must narrow the field to just four women – the four who will invite him into their families’ homes – while one woman leaves in one of the most emotional rose ceremonies ever. (This line sounds familiar)- isn’t that what they say every week??
