Elsewhere, Jamie is boring Kalon to death over it, and then she sees Blakeley breaking down in tears over not going on the date with Chris. Jamie goes to talk to Chris, and her spine completely disappears when she swallows his bullshit story about how he'd like to take her on the date but couldn't, because that would cause problems between Jamie and Blakeley. "It's such a good feeling to know that you're being protected by someone," she tells us. Her little pea brain equates Chris's spurning both his partner and his side-partner as "loyalty" somehow.
Chris manages to get ready for his date without being murdered. "It was hurtful, because I felt like I was betrayed," says Blakeley, who wonders if Chris is thinking with his other head. In the car ride to their date, Sarah wonders if she's now part of a love square. She also thinks there could be a romantic spark between her and Chris. I can see why she'd be interested in him. I mean, if she wants to constantly be wondering if he's going to cheat on her.
So their limo driver stops, wordlessly, in a parking garage. They sit there for a moment and wonder what's going on -- Sarah manages to keep her clothes on -- and then suddenly the driver peels out and screeches through the parking garage and outside through some boxes.
So their date is, of course, one of those learn-how-to-be-action-stars dates, where they stare at each other and work on choreographed fight scenes. There's a pseudo-plot about Chris being a hostage who needs rescuing, and then the two of them kiss, and this movie is even worse than The Expendables.
Back at the house, Harrison comes in with a rose for Ed to give out. Ed gets to give it out, not Chris, because Ed won the challenge. Blakeley immediately starts desperation-flirting with him. Meanwhile, on the date, Chris gets to say, without any need to be called on his bullshit, that if he had a rose he'd give it to her. Then she makes a "rose" with a strawberry and a fork, and he gives it her, and she sadly tells us it's a symbol of what a great partner he is and how loyal he is, and maybe when she gets back to the house she and Jamie can find a dictionary and look up the word "loyalty" in it, because they're in for a surprise.
Back at the house, all the contestants are hanging out, waiting to find out who Ed's going to choose for the rose. Ed, saying he's basing it on trust and friendships, gives it to Rachel. Blakeley makes a sad face, and has to listen to Jaclyn claim it was her decision for Ed to give Rachel the rose.
