"Who's to say she can't do that at any point?" points out Jesse. Graham says DeAnna's probably really upset, and he thinks Jason -- now left alone with DeAnna in the mansion -- is in a unique position to console her. And Jason's on that like white on rice, and talks about the date with her. The cuddle outside near the fire and chat about the date, and then they make out.
Time for the cocktail party. Jason thinks he's got a huge advantage because DeAnna saw how good he was to come home to talk to about the awful date. Friend zone alert! Friend zone alert! DeAnna has an overly madeup talking-head in which she talks about how tensions will be running high at tonight's cocktail party, because she was really upset last time they saw her. "Upset" is one way of putting it. So is "acting like a psychopath."
The other guys are slightly nonplussed to see Jason walk her in to the mansion. Jeremy feels there's a little bit of a threat, so he snags her for some one-on-one time (try to contain your shock) so he can talk about how he understands why she was so upset, and the guys all played a part in not respecting her. She points out that he was one of the guys hanging out with her, and he agrees that he is indeed awesome.
Inside, the other guys are asking Jason about whether he had a chance to talk about the date, and he casually talks about how great it was. Twilley quizzes him on whether he sees a connection growing. You'll never believe this, but Jason does.
So now Brian snags her for some one-on-one to talk about how her honesty shines through even in tough situations. Yeah, but if you're honest about being self-centred, it's not really a good thing, right? The guys note Brian holding hands with her while they talk, and everyone starts to realize that the guys who are left have made at least some sort of connection with her.
Well, except maybe for Twilley, who is Jason's pick for a dude who's doomed to go tonight. He snags some one-on-one time, this time of the "I'm feeling kind of like I'm behind" variety, and DeAnna reassures him that he wouldn't still be there if she didn't want him there.
