Thanks for the spoiler!! And good for him for at least still being in the game at that point, whatever it meant!
I agree it sounds more typical of one of the weeks where the contestants get sent home for a week and then brought back to the ranch. Typically don't the final four head home and stay there for 2 or 3 months until the live finale? Or if they don't stay there, it's not the show shipping them off - like Koli went to Vegas, but that was his choice, not the show.
But filming schedules are not my forte at all. Perhaps ranch filming was over at that point, I've no idea.
