I asked this question earlier: Why have we seen no footage of Ed and Kip seeing her parents in the previews?Originally Posted by SDMOM;3581816;
Something different is going on this season.
Some of us are convinced that Reid's departure was Jillian/producer-driven to "speed up" his decision-making and, perhaps, make it less obvious he could be The One. Right now, he's only on our radar... and those observant Reid fans who noticed something different about that limo speech.
I guess this is another reason we got all of that neurotic/over-analyzing stuff. Critics thought these were "red flags" preventing him from being F1. Now, we all realize these only increase the Final Five Minute suspense: Will or won't he come back for her?
I'm now getting an image of a Hawaiian airport and somebody saying... gee, maybe I should go to Harry Winston instead! (On Fleiss' tab, of course.)
