I'm so excited to be doing my first ever series of Bachelorette Recaps! This show is my guilty pleasure and I love writing and talking about it, but I also really love reading spoilers. I just wanted to provide a quick disclaimer that I have read spoilers and will be writing this from the spoiled perspective. If you want to read spoilers so you can relate more to this post you can click here.
If you like this recap, you can read all of my other recaps: first episode, third episode, fourth episode, fifth episode, sixth episode. Though I know what happens in rose ceremonies and the ending, the funny and dramatic things that occur within the episodes make it worth watching. I'm excited, because this season seems to be full of drama. I think choosing Kaitlin as Bachelorette was a good idea, though she could end up as the girl version of Juan Pablo.

San Antonio Cocktail Party and Rose Ceremony:
The show comes back on and instantly we are back to Ian drama. Ian has decided he needs to be completely honest with Kaitlin. Don't be honest with Kaitlin just simply tell her what she wants to hear. Ian is beginning to self implode. As mean as some of his statements are, there may be some truth in this statement. I'm starting to believe that Kaitlin really only is here to have someone plow her field. Kaitlin is kind of surface and really focuses on the physical part of the relationship. Bye Bye Ian don't ever question Kaitlin. Even Princeton is ashamed of you right now. Ian just wanted to go out with a bang, he could have simply went home at a rose ceremony peacefully. Ian let me tell you now that there is no way you will be the bachelor, because you are a jerk. No one likes you. Now Kaitlin sits all sobby on the couch, scared that someone revealed the truth. But now Nick is back to the rescue. Nick is really getting the good guy edit before he goes down hill very quickly. Nick is a smooth talker and I have trouble telling if he's sincere or full of poop. Who am I kidding I know Nick is full of poop. All the guys are getting angry at Nick again, shocker is this going to be a weekly thing. Ew nick just bit her finger, what the heck, what even am I watching. Shawn walks in on Nick making out with Kaitlin and that makes him feel very confident about himself as Nick and her continue to talk for over 20 minutes. Shawn gets so jealous about all they other guys, why'd he go on this show doesn't he know how it works of course she has connections with other guys. But something about his jealousy is charming. Kaitlin again emphasizes the importance of intimacy, foreshadowing much?
Luckily for the guys, it is not near as cold here at the Texas Alamo. All the guys I care about already got roses. Ben Z. is very worried he won't get a rose, but of course he will. J.J. always gets a rose early, but we never see them together is there something there that this show isn't telling us or does he just have a cool name. Why is Tanner even still on this show. At the rose ceremony Justin and Joshua are eliminated. I wish Joshua would shut up about nick and he would probably stay on the show. They are headed to Ireland. I have heard a million times on this show that Ireland is the best place to fall in love, but why Ireland of all places?? Chris, the cheesy cupcake, coming in with the Irish analogy. No one is shocked by that. Here begins a crazy week in Ireland.
Nicks 1 on 1 Date:
Kaitlin comes to get Nick and he is wearing way too tight pants. The date is honestly just in a park and of course Kaitlin's fear of birds comes back to haunt her. They start dancing some cliche Irish jig, but more importantly they are kissing everywhere. He also keeps sticking his hand in her shirt, which is just really awkward. Wow Kaitlin is eating up his words. They need to chill it with the kissing good lord. This whole date just makes me really uncomfortable. After a day of adventuring, they go to a fancy dinner. they keep saying it was a great day, but that's because they spent it doing nothing but kissing. I think this is what Ashley S. was talking about when she said lust or love. Nick was a bit to excited when she said she wanted to go to her room, especially after what he said to Andi. Kaitlin takes him to her room and eww please stop Kaitlin. Kaitlin and Nick sleep together. Like what is this show even becoming, it's obviously not focused on the romance. Kaitlin dropped her panties real quick when Nick became involved. Nick is then forced to partake in the walk of shame, while Kaitlin cries in regret over her balcony. I hated everything about this date. It's funny how much remorse she has for something she so quickly did.
At the Hotel With the Guys:
-The date card comes and there is a group date. After those guys are revealed, we discover that there will be a 2 on 1 with J.J. and Joe. This gets hardly emphasized and isn't even shown this episode! J.J.'s way to overconfident about the 2 on 1 leaving me to see how he may have a greater connection with Kaitlin. Shawn and Jared are having a conversation in the house, while Kaitlin's on her date with Nicj. Shawn's so jealous about Kaitlin it is crazy. I wish he could see Kaitlin now and discover about her and Nick. Nick has no good intentions and all the guys are making that clear.
Group Date- Irish Wake:
This date revolves around Kaitlin being dead and all the guys writing eulogies. Chris Harrison gets some screen time, which is a big shock. Tanner had the cutest toast to Kaitlin and I wish I could get to know him. Cupcake starts singing and you can tell he's a giant cheese ball. Ben H. had a kind of weird toast pertaining to birds. Shawn's toast is hilarious and he says she took her own life, because she had to spend all day with Nick and he wold do the same. It also was a subtle jab at Nick in a hidden way. Ben Z. asks everyone to leave for his toast. He is all serious, because he has been through it before with his mom. It really seems to be very tough for him and I applaud him for doing it. He explains to Kaitlin that this whole process has led to self discovery for him. You can see that Ben Z. is a giant softy. I'm pretty sure that she like Jared because he makes her laugh and that is the only reason. Shawn is putting his guard up, but he is beginning to focus on Kaitlin and not Nick, and he shows her pictures of his family. The rose goes to Jared. Shawn is instantly jealous, but honestly if you get every rose Shawn we will not have a show. So Shawn man up and realize that it's not the end of the world that she gave it to Jared. Shawn a rose doesn't describe her love to you. Jared and her get some one on one time and go dancing in a church with a live band. Ben Z. speaks the truth about horrible it truly feels that Jared got the rose. But what we get a major curve ball that Kaitlin came to Shawn's room and told him he was it, he was the winner, so why is he so self conscious. But then later why is Shawn confiding in a producer of all people. We end the episode with Shawn about to confront Kaitlin.
Britt and Brady:
We get a very little bit of Britt and Brady at the ending credits of the show. Brady meets Britt's mom. Her mom seems to view them as only friends. I'm not sure what this clip was supposed to show or mean.
Bachelor Producers you are killing me with this to be continued. We didn't even get all of the dates in this weeks episode, like we spent two hours on only 2 dates and a rose ceremony from last week. Plus I'm also annoyed with Nick and all this Shawn drama. It is like the same things over and over again and it's getting boring, but don't worry I will not stop watching.
Thanks for Reading,Ashley
