Re AshLee standing on a chair and first shouting "Hello St. Croix" then shouting "I Love You!". Both of these hark back to Sean's date with Emily in London when he stood on the upper deck of the bus and shouted, "Hello London!" She also did the "hello" on their first 1:1 date.
What to think...I do wish Leslie had said the "I love you", but if she was too nervous then she was not ready and that is too bad as I really liked them together. Notice they left their night time dinner on the cutting room floor. Editing clue that she wasn't long for the Bachelor journey experience. Yes, there wouldn't have been time for Tierra's hysterics, but it was still a clue.
Whoa...Sean's clipped No Drama speech stunned all the girls, but especially AshLee as she thought he would think her talking about Tierra would be considered drama. IF Leslie had stepped up to the plate, I think AshLee would have gone home.
Lindsay has really surprised me (as well as Sean). She does seem free and easy with him, and after the group date at the Bach Pad where she got serious, I think he figured she was in for the long haul, but I'm still not seeing it as ever after.
Des is the kicker. I agree that Montana was a bust for Sean because she expressed doubts...well that and other things. Like Andy with Tessa, he gave her a 1:1 the next round to see if he could pull her back in and he has so he is happy. As far as the blow up with her brother, that is too bad. That poor young man (from the looks of the dramatic preview) has never gotten past the mean streets, while Des has made the effort. Of course, it is different for a male in overcoming childhood trauma - I think they take it much harder because so much more is expected of them. We'll see how that works out.
And then there is Catherine who truly is the Tessa of this season - both in looks and personality (only more laid back and adaptable.) She also has doubts about where Sean's mind is especially at this point. IF someone who she considered to be more compatible with Sean than she is didn't get the rose, does that mean she is next to say good-bye? Those insecurities may play a big part in the WHO DOES HE CHOOSE near the end of the show.
Good-bye (this is my husband) Tierra. A wrong time pouting fit cost you. It doesn't mean he wouldn't have cut her at the Rose Ceremony, but his doubts and then conviction she wasn't the one left her leaving in a van. Somehow I won't miss the fake tears and sly smiles. **sigh**
I'm so glad I've remained unspoiled this season. I can still have questions about where he will land even though seasons of experience have left me unsurprised at this point.
