Jillian, still teary-eyed, says Wes has been talking about his family from day one, and she was really excited to meet them, but he fucked it up. We watch Wes walking down the hallway, not yet aware that this is about to become the most dramatic confrontation in Bachelorette history.
After the commercial break, Jillian says she needs to hear it from Wes, that she needs to grill him as hard as she can. Wes knocks on the door, and Jillian invites him in for a drink. "Sho' nuff, sho' nuff," says Jillian. They sit down, and Jillian's being fake perky, and then says she needs to talk to him. And instead of asking him flat out about Laurel, she just asks if there's anything that he needs to tell her about his past or anything. "I hate that you're asking me about this," says Wes, who thinks she's asking him about his career again, but that's not it, so he just asks her to ask what it is that she needs to ask. She says someone told her that he has a girlfriend, and he's all confused. "One of my guys?" he says, and Jillian beats around the bush before finally explaining that Jake was there about an hour ago, and told her. Wes, looking awfully guilty, clears his throat, and then says, "That's crazy." Hilariously, he then tells Jillian exactly what Jake said he would say, about how this is an old girlfriend with whom he's still friends. I think, though, it's worth pointing out that Jake might know that that's what Wes would say if it were also the truth. But kind of tellingly, he gets a little confrontational with her, all, "If you wanna believe that," and Jillian says she doesn't know what to believe. She says Jake is someone she trusts, and she doesn't know why he would mislead her. Wes offers that Jake "misheard," which is hilarious. She asks him if he were the last guy there, would he at least date her? "I wouldn't leave," says Wes, and he tells her he's not playing any games, and that he's not a good liar (agreed!) and she's got to figure this out. Jillian asks if he would want to work this out with Jake. "Bring him out. I don't care," says Wes.
