Back at the house, the guys are wasting their time speculating on whether Ed will get a rose or not, instead of spending their time more wisely by playing basketball or pool or, God forbid, reading a book that doesn't have pictures. I'd suggest that even punching each other in the face would be a better use of their time, but Dave is probably somewhere doing just that right now.
Back on the roof, Ed and Jillian are getting strapped in, with Ed admitting to us that he was scared. So at least we know he survived, since he's talking about this in the past tense. Jillian, meanwhile, is talking a lot of nonsense about how this is like love, because you have to take chances with love, or something. The two of them don't even seem to have any control over how fast they go and are instead being lowered slowly down the ziplines. I kind of think that I would be a little freaked out, just hanging there hundreds of feet in the air, dangling over Los Angeles. At the end of the line is a pool, so Jillian and Ed celebrate how awesome they are by jumping in it afterwards, and then they don't even bother to dry Jillian's hair for the interviews afterward in which she talks about how she and Ed are closer together for having risked their lives together or whatever the hell.
They babble at each other in the pool about how easy it is to talk to each other. She says Ed is very sexy. "I just feel so comfortable with him. I just feel like 'little Jillian.' This guy is going to take care of me." I'd argue that it's starting to seem more and more like we've only ever seen "little Jillian" who wants a man to take care of her, but nobody's looking to this show to challenge gender assumptions, are they?
For the romantic dinner, they go back to a rooftop, this time on the top of the Bonaventure Hotel, and Jillian tells us she's glad that she popped his "helicopter cherry," so maybe they could just spend the rest of the dinner in silence? She tells us that she threw "one adventure after another" at Ed, and I have to think that the final adventure is having to make small talk with the borderline-manic Jillian babbling at your face a hundred miles hour, and she asks what he would do after "the craziest day at work" to unwind, and you'll never guess, but he likes to go to a bar with his friends for a few beers, and then the place becomes a karaoke bar and he belts out the Elton John tunes, or something. Then they talk about careers, and Jillian has a passion for her career, except for the part where she keeps talking about having a man take care of her, and Ed has a passion for his career, too, which is great, except she's worried that he is "all about" his career, and she's been down that road before, which is why she's still single. And I'd like to point out that she's been on this show before, too, and that's why she's still single, but she's trying it again, anyway. She says something about having so much love to give, and then at some point they are making out, so I guess the date is going well.
