Byron prepares for the Rose Ceremony. He voice-overs that he needs to rely on his own perceptions of the women, and not what he's heard from others. Chris walks in and tells Byron that he will again have the chance to talk to three of the women before the Rose Ceremony. Byron chooses to talk to Susie, Heather, and Cheresse.
The women hang out and wait to find out who will be talking to Byron. Heather thinks that being chosen for the talk indicates that Byron is interested. Kristie interviews that she hopes that Byron doesn't choose a new girl to stay over herself. Chris walks in and announces that Byron would like to speak to Susie, Heather, and Cheresse; Susie is first.
Susie interviews that she's starting to develop feelings for Byron, and that it's scary. Susie walks up to Byron and says that she's feeling uncertain about Byron's feelings for her, and that she doesn't want him to read her uncertainty as lack of interest. Byron interviews that Susie said exactly what he wanted to hear.
Heather talks to Mary and tries to convince herself that it's good that she was chosen to speak to Byron. Heather meets up with Byron and laughs that this process doesn't get any easier. Byron interviews that Heather is beautiful, but he doesn't know her that well. Krysta and Andrea spy on them. Krysta doesn't think that Heather's motives are genuine. Andrea says that it's hard for her to see Byron with Heather, because they don't seem to belong together. Krysta is happy to see that Heather walks away without a kiss.
Cheresse talks to Jayne and Amanda about what she will say to Byron. Cheresse reminds everyone that she hasn't talked to Byron since their date, and that while she felt a spark when they were together, she doesn't know how long it can be sustained if they aren't talking. Cheresse walks out, and she and Byron joke about how they haven't talked in a long time. Cheresse says that she had a great time on their date, but that she's had a hard time finding Byron. Dude, he's right there! Also, here's another clue. He's the only dude on the premises. Well, there's Kristie, so I could see how it might be confusing. Byron pretty much says that he's been around. Cheresse says that she thought Byron would ask her out again, and Byron confirms that their date was great. Cheresse interviews that, going into the evening, she was confident that she would get a rose, but now she's not so sure.
