He tells her to hold on, and he'll be right back, so he goes out to shuffle around and look at his feet. He tells us that he cares about Tierra so when she's upset, it's hard to watch. On the other hand, his sister said if a woman can't get along with other women, that's trouble. Well, she signed you up for this show, so maybe her judgment isn't infallible?
Then he tells us he knows what he needs to do. He goes back inside and sits down on Tierra's cot, and explains that he brought his sister in to meet her, and this makes her face crumple some more, and he says he knows how emotionally taxing this has been on her. "I'm crazy about you, and I have been since the very first night," he says. And even now, with Tierra, he's pulling the "I'm sending you home because I care about you so much" routine.
Although to be fair to him here, if he takes Tierra at her word, that this is this hard on her, if she really can't handle this, then she should go home. Of course, her tears dry up and she stomps out to the minivan, and he says, "I think the world of you, I really do." "Obviously not enough," she says, and gets in the van. And the crying starts up again. "I can't believe they did this to me!" she wails, adding, "I want to go home!"
Back at the beach, Sean reports back to Shay that, you know, things could have gone better on his errand to fetch Tierra. She seems to approve. Apparently even people who only hear about Tierra don't have to meet her to dislike her.
In the van, Tierra determinedly says she won't let anyone take her sparkle away, because that's just the kind of thing a well-adjusted adult woman -- and not a My Little Pony -- would say.
Somehow, none of the other women know what happened with Tierra. She's been gone for hours, so she either went home or is dead, and they're like, "Ehh, either way." They're not ruling out the possibility that Tierra pulled his strings and he's already given her a sympathy rose.
So they're a little hopeful when they see him walk in to the cocktail party alone, and he explains his "moment of clarity" when he saw what an emotional mess she was, and he knew she wouldn't be his wife. And he tells them he's not looking for someone who causes drama, and it sure sounds like a warning. And also because he's such a baby, there's not going to be a cocktail party, but he will see them at the rose ceremony.
AshLee's not sure if the "no drama, bitches!" warning is directed at her or not, but Lesley, for one, thinks AshLee should be at least a little worried. They file into the rose ceremony, where Chris Harrison babbles some bullshit at them to remind them that they must all respect what he did with Tierra. AshLee is freaking out, because she never wants "to bring confusion to this man" and she never wants to bring hurt. "And I don't want to go home without him." Well, just don't cause him any kind of consternation ever, and you'll be fine.
