Are you kidding me? We're doing another therapy session? I am not recapping this. Instead, I'm going to recap a scene from something else I'd rather be watching.
So the Dude and Donny and Walter are bowling, and then Walter freaks out and yells "Over the line!" because one of the guys on the other team stepped over the line, except the other guy Smokey disputes it, and tells the Dude to mark down an eight, and Walter gets angrier, and pulls his gun out and points it at Smokey and is all "You're entering a world of pain," and ... oh, the therapy scene is over.
Cocktail party time! I'd really like to see more from Lindsay. Cute redhead. Hasn't had a chance to shine. Chantal looks nice! She's already got a rose, but she's excited to see him again. Brad tells us that each cocktail party gets him one step closer to seeing his wife, so blah blah blah. He wants to use his time now to talk to some of the women who didn't get dates this week, like Shawntel, and they revisit their action movie date with Shawntel jumping into his arms, and then they kiss. "Brad is amazing. I was so reassured," she says. That's the power of Brad's tongue! Just ask EVERY OTHER WOMAN IN THE HOUSE.
And now he's talking to... who is this? Brad is telling her that he wants to get deeper. But they actually have clothes on. And they have one of those boring conversations about opening up, and she amusingly says she doesn't really want to be one of the women who lay it all out right away, because then they're bawling when he goes out on a date with someone else. Oh, this is Meghan, and she feels more confident about getting a rose tonight.
And now he's taking Emily aside, and he's got a basket with some pillows and wine. "You are so sweet to do that for me!" Shawntel says that was really hard to watch, and Meghan agrees. Chantal says the kissing is one thing, but having a whole "magical moment" thing is something else. "Feels like a punch in the stomach," she says. Well, then leave. If you've rationalized the kissing (and later sex) thing, but this where you draw the line? Draw it and leave. In other news, is Ol' Hatchetface even there? Or since she's got her rose, I guess she doesn't feel like she needs to mingle with the rabble.
After a commercial break, Ol' Hatchetface finds out about the Emily thing, and she is surprisingly OK with it because of the awesome date they had; still, she's a little put out that he didn't do something like that for her.
