So when she starts blathering on about it to him at dinner, Ed can barely hide his annoyance, and asks her what she thinks it means for them to be a team on Bachelor Pad, because it seems to him she wants to be a couple in the Pad. "I feel like this is a Facebook status thing," he says. By this point, he's decided the discussion is stupid and childish, and she tells him he makes him feel like an insignificant piece of shit. She says that within the confines of the show, she feels like they're a couple, but he doesn't. "I don't want to look like a whore," she says.
Ed hilariously just starts digging into dinner. "Well, I don't want to look like an asshole," he says. "I don't want to look like a whore," she says again, and then adds that she wants to make sure they're on the same page. I realize that "I don't want to look like a whore" is a weird thing for someone who voluntarily goes on The Bachelor to say, but if it makes Jaclyn feel better, she doesn't seem like a whore. I mean, whores get paid.
Ed brashly says he's closer to her than anyone on the house so of course he wants to sleep in the same bed. "I trust you more than anybody, and by the way, we have amazing chemistry," he says. Beyond that, he wants to play it middle-of-the-road. He calls it "comforting" when they sleep together and it solidifies their trust. "By us sleeping in the same bed, yes, we are a couple," he tells her. "Why is he acting like such a douche?" Jaclyn asks us? She doesn't ask him that. She kisses him and smiles and stamps WELCOME on her torso and goes out to lie down in front of doors.
And she comes to terms with being Ed's fuck-buddy and we watch them go upstairs to their overnight suite, Jaclyn leaving any bit of dignity downstairs as she does so.
The next day, Ed and Jaclyn return to the house with the news that they have immunity roses to give out. Jaclyn, who is now dead inside, basically expects everyone to bow down before them before they bestow the roses. She's gone full mercenary, it seems. So we watch everyone starting to kiss up to Ed and Jaclyn while this pseudo-Godfather music kicks in. Kalon and Lindzi explicitly tell them they'll do whatever they say. "I'm your bitch," says Lindzi. I kinda wish that Ed had gotten mad at Kalon and mumble-yelled, "You can start by being a man!" I mean, the guy doesn't read, but he watches movies, right?
Eventually, Jaclyn and Ed bestow the roses on Tony and Blakely, but not before Ed gives an eyerolller of a speech about how when he gives his word he keeps it and he expects others to do the same. If there's one thing people expect you do on this show, it's keep your word! (It sure isn't spelling the word.)
