Sarah tells Zora that their necklaces are gorgeous. In an interview, Sarah says it's becoming clearer to her why the two of them are left, because they have a lot in common. They do? What? Hair? Two eyes? In an interview, Zora says she can't imagine that Evan could have picked two girls who were more different. Heh. Sarah says she can't believe that they're at the end and raises her scary eyebrows. Sarah doesn't think there will be any relaxing from here on out.
Melissa packs. In an interview, Melissa gets tears in her eyes and clears her throat. Paul walks her out. In an interview, Melissa says that she had a good time and then gets all choked up. She says that Evan is a great guy who made her feel at home and safe. Paul hugs Melissa goodbye. In an interview, Melissa says that Evan is missing out. Melissa's car pulls away.
Back at the chateau, Evan returns to his old friend, the demon alcohol. He sits at the kitchen table and downs a beer. In an interview, Evan says he's been dreading this from the beginning, because it's down to two girls and he has to pick one of them and tell her that he's been lying this whole time. Evan gulps down some beer and then stares at it, probably thinking, "I wish I could just marry beer."
Mastercheese Theatre. Paul tells us to join him next week, and says that it's a good thing the show's almost over because he's almost out of cognac. As Eddie Izzard would say, he really does like to leave us with that sort of "eh" feeling, no?
Coming up (but note that it's not necessarily next week): They show a lot of clips that we've already seen as Evan talks about how difficult the decision will be. We see Evan telling someone that he hasn't chosen her, and also saying (to the same woman?) that what he's about to say might come as a shock. People on the forums were concerned that a shot of Sarah getting a necklace was a spoiler, but it's totally a clip from the first episode of her getting her pearl necklace (hee!). I still think the coolest ending would be if they brought back all of the eliminated contestants and we got to see their faces when they found out that Evan is poor. I just can't believe that the production company missed that boat, so I choose to believe they're saving it all for the finale. Or maybe next week will be the alternates finding out, and then the following week is the two-hour finale. Who knows? I'll see you next week.
