    Looked like the same old Brad & Emily date trying desperately to make it work.
    You can almost see Brad doing the moonwalk out the door - except he can't find it.

    The problem I have with this is that Brad is the one who pushed his way into Emily's house when she really was hesitant to let him in unless he was confident he was going to be there when this was over. Now, he is pretty sure he isn't, and she gave it up ( let him come), and he is going to be gone anyway.

    Why do I say that? That is what the edit showed me in the last 2 weeks. On the beach, she told him she didn't want to let him meet her daughter implied if he wasn't going to be around for the long haul. He was rather desperate for a HT date to meet her daughter, so he promised her a pre-ceremony rose just to get her to agree to let him meet her daughter.
    On the HT, he was so uncomfortable with her child sleeping upstairs that he couldn't even kiss her. He really just wanted to leave. It is pretty obvious to a former single mom of a 5 year old that Brad can't emotionally handle that situation.

    Re: Edit Analysis 2.0

    I noticed it most especially this season. In the past, at this point is was "simply" about who each f1,f2.f3's individual supporters felt the lead and the best "connection" with. That connection used to be all about emotional, physical, good old time fun that we could see with our own eyes, as edited. We were able to forget the back stories to a large degree, because we saw more of the people, almost as if the whole season was and "ITM" moment. If that makes sense to you.

    This season, the focus has been more on the "pysche", the backstory, and the insecurities each brings to the table. For my own 2 cents worth, I like the simpler edits. There were enough mind games there to keep an idiot entertained, ( yes, I am included), but this seems like too much work and not enough entertainment.JMO

    Did he have to go call his therapist?!? I guess another thought could be that there was going to be something more later so let's get the filming part done?!?! His whole demeanor was just not what I expected when Emily finally seems into him.

    check out the "Here's what I know" thread - the very first post should answer that question for you.

    Chantal: We've seen a lot of Chantal's emotional side, so much so that people are annoyed by her and tired of the tears. We have seen her having fun with Brad, being adventurous, them being romantic, and a great htd but still people aren't seeing the relationship as being a good one. It's a great way to hide the f1 person but not so affective if she's the f2.

    Emily: With Emily it's Brad saying wonderful things about her in PIs and in the blogs. It doesn't seem to matter that what we're being shown doesn't match what we're hearing/reading. Even if a lot is being edited out we still see a very distant relationship (if you can call it that) where there's very little contact. Even still that's not what people remember and the majority of viewers seem to believe that either it is Emily or should be. A good way to edit the f2 person but not f1.

    When you think about it, Fleiss is doing his best to muddy the RS spoilers water and has set up Emily as the f1 people are hoping to see. We all know that MF doesn't care at all about what people want but how to best fool them. He's all about the drama and a FRC where the expected happens isn't what he's all about. With Jason it was okay because he knew what was happening at the ATFR show. I just don't see any way that this is going to come down to Emily as the f1 based on the edit let alone the spoilers.
    I agree with this. I would love to say that we can go 100% off everything Brad says and does but I know that MF leaves his grimy fingerprints on everything when it comes to this show. I see Chantal getting an edit somewhat like Vienna's. Vienna's personal choices aside it's basically normal fun loving girl going up against sainthood.
    I apologize for the choice of Vienna but that's really the only season where the edit was easy to grasp... it was all about a storyline because there was no lovestory.

    You are correct MF is trying to cast doubt on RS's spoilers and separate the masses... it's working...he's a magician.

    I am starting to go to the "dark place" when it comes to this show... it's scary

    I think Bloomers broke it down perfectly.
    Brad pretty much had an epiphany of what he really could handle by the end of Emily's HTD. Its not that he doesn't want to be a dad, or that he doesn't care for her, but this meet wasn't fitting in quite as well as he'd hoped... and at that point he's only sure about how he personally feels for emily, not necessarily how he feels about being the full-time father of her child.

    Doesn't look to me that anything is being hidden in the edit between Brad and Emily. TPTB are showing us exactly what the struggle is between the two. I'm totally prepared to hear Brad tell Emily how much he cared for her but that his heart belongs to someone else....and of course, it has nothing to do with cute little Ricki. Right.

    I must be the only one that noticed cause whatever it is that has Brad in a tizzy and fanning himself, Emily looks down, hides her eyes and [B]grins from ear to ear and won't look at him for some reason while she is doing it. Wonder why?B]So I guess she totally misunderstood what you guys feel is going in in that scene.

    Re: Edit Analysis 2.0

    Brad's behavior with Emily after little Ricki goes to bed is not weird. He has a problem showing affection in public, whether it is kissing that Laurel lauren whomever, or ..having Emily's child catch her mother kissing a new man in their home. Brad likes to move slow. The child is not accustomed to having her mother kissing men in front of her. Did anyone see Brad kiss Emily when he first said "hello"...NO. As a man knows, there is special consideration with touching a woman first time in front of children. period. no mystery.
    Brad does not want to be anyone's adopted SON. He's too old for that. Maybe Chantal's father's buddy, but SON. that's absurd.

    You know that scene reminded me so much of Trista and Ryan's moment in Seatle..
