Frank claims that he saw everything he ever wanted in a girl IN ALI, but he loves Nicole. This still makes no sense. And, yeah yeah yeah, heart is a lonely hunter, the heart is deceitful above all things, but, still. Shut up, Frank. Frank claims he feels horrible and walking away from Ali with tears in her eyes was painful. So I guess Frank still has a soul. Also, a suitcase. Why would he bring a suitcase? Ali is still crying on the beach, when Chris Harrison goes to sit next to her and put in his mandatory ten minutes of screen time. Harrison sends Ali to her room to cry in private because she is frightening the locals and not living up to their contractual obligations to the Tan'aa Resort and Spa to show a romantic destination. Ali cries and confesses that A. She thinks Frank is the biggest jerk she's ever met and B. That something is wrong with her because she really liked him. She really needs a girlfriend to point out that the two are not at all mutually exclusive.
So Ali is all dressed up for a pointless Rose Ceremony, but first she is going to her Dark Place. Ali explains that Frank leaving was her biggest fear come true. She was worried from the beginning that she would fall for someone and they wouldn't love her back. And it came true! She shame-spirals into a paranoid fit that no one will ever love her, she gave up her apartment for nothing, she is unlovable, and her arms will get fat and jiggly and she'll die. Only the entrance of Chris Harrison drags her out of the darkness and back into the soft Tahitian light. He sits her down, puts on his listening face, and reminds her that she still has two great guys. Are they the right two guys? Who the fuck cares! They're the only two guys. Ali smiles confidently that her future husband is still there. Probably. Maybe. Most definitely. She thinks. Maybe. Can she have a minute? Chris Harrison points out that there are two guys and two roses, so the outcome is a given, but he thinks they should have a Rose Ceremony anyway. It's important! Oh Chris Harrison, such a traditionalist! Ali thinks it is important that the remaining two options accept their roses tonight. It's the acceptance that is key. Chris thinks it is important that Ali tell the guys herself about Frank's betrayal. Does Harrison have a degree in counseling or something? Because sometimes he seems genuinely good to talk to, which is almost unsettling. Harrison leaves Ali to think about her life choices while he leads Chris and Roberto to the Rose Room, which is actually a patio. Ali comes in and explains that Frank had to leave because of "unfinished business at home," which makes it TOTALLY SOUND like Frank knocked up Nicole, but they didn't want to put that on the show. Ali hands each guy a rose and asks them to accept it. They do. Not much drama there. Ali explains that their final destination is Bora Bora and her family is waiting to vet the mens. Hope they do a better job than the producers.
