The next place they go is a pretend speakeasy where the password is "horse of course" because of Lindzi and the stupid horse she rode in on. The place is all done up like a 1920s joint only without the polio. Pulling on a special book in a bookcase reveals a secret private dining room, where we hear her talk again about being dumped via text message "Welcome to Dumpsville, Population: You".
Then they go to some sort of piano showroom and Ben teaches her some music, and then they slow dance. And then we cut to a car driving into San Francisco, with the mystery woman they've been teasing at each commercial break leaving a message for Chris Harrison, saying she's on her way and she's really looking forward to seeing him again but even more important, seeing Ben.
After the commercial break, she's now on the phone again, and this time she's talking to Chris Harrison, who asks if she's sure she wants to do this, like THERE'S A CAMERA CREW IN THE GODDAMN CAR WITH HER, WE'RE NOT IDIOTS, and after she gets off the phone, she says, "He's going to totally fall in love with me." I still don't know who this is. Then again, I'm pretty good at forgetting just about everyone who's ever been on this show, so after they reveal her, I probably will still be confused.
It's the cocktail hour. I like this place they're in -- love the circular library. Ben comes in and leads the women in a toast to finding pretend love. Ben sits down for some small talk with Jennifer. Things start well, then get awkward, and then Ben tells her she is hands-down the best kisser in the house. How nice that he said that, and how nice that she believed him! Then they make out, because of course they do. She seems a little gaga.
The mystery woman is still on her way. It's someone who was on the show and fell in love with Brad. See, I've even forgotten who Brad is. Anyway, this person says the only reason she's here is because Ben is everything she's ever wanted. I presume chief among Ben's appealing qualities is that he's on television.
So Chris Harrison greets her at the hotel entrance. I have to say that her grand entrance is diminished somewhat by the fact she schleps out of her car in jeans. It's Shawntel. Her face is familiar. It really isn't only until the on-screen graphic reminds me that she's the funeral director. Harrison welcomes her and says he didn't really think she was going to do it, and again I'd like to point out that THERE WAS A CAMERA IN THE CAR with her, although the more I think about it the more it's likely that those shots were staged after she left.
