MAN --- I just got back from being away (with no computer) and look what I missed! If RS is correct, and from everything I've read today, I kind of think he might be, that explains for me Jason's bawling over the balcony. He would HATE to let F2 (Molly) go, even if he knew it was a script. So did Molly know what was going on? Did Melissa? What about the exit interviews from the other girls? Couldn't any of them tell what was going on?
I don't think Stephanie knew. I really believe Jason when he said he "wanted it to be there." But Stephanie looked right at Melissa when she said "one of you is going to make him very happy." I don't think she's one person who could fake it like that -- unless she was told to. I'm so mixed up now I don't know if anything is "real."
Jason told Molly what they had was "real." Was that a hint to her? Or did she know already that he really wanted her? If his crying over the balcony is a result of saying goodbye to her, then she didn't know - and he would be hurting the woman he really did love. So that leads me to believe she didn't know. He's not that great an actor to portray that anguish, is he?
If all this is true, I can't believe Melissa didn't know about it at some point. I would hope these F3 are told that no matter what happens, they will be looked after!
