A close-up of a rose signifies that what is coming up will definitely not be a Rose Ceremony. Paul returns to the ball and says that he needs to steal David away. Kat interviews that everyone was wondering why David had to leave, and whether he would come back. Alessia yells and begs for one kiss for each woman. David wants to go back, but Paul warns him that is a bad idea. Alessia continues to yell after David about saying goodbye to his horse (or possibly his whores). David tells Paul that Alessia is nuts.
Paul and David go into a study. David says that it was "weird." He adds, "You just don't know in this amount of time, like, what." Paul says that's why it's difficult, and David should remember that the women don't know about the elimination. The women continue drinking and talking about David. Lina pulls Linda aside and asks how scary it was when David said he didn't have any neighbors except cows and horses. I think that sounds awesome, but Lina wonders plaintively if that means that there's no Starbucks and no shopping. Linda smiles tightly.
