So I guess everyone in the bachelorette house is still too devastated from all the rule-breaking and history-making of the previous episode, because the women aren't even already waiting and drinking when Chris arrives to tell them how this week is going to go, so he has to bellow for them to get their asses into the living room.
He talks some shit about how awesome it is for all the women that Jason didn't give out the final final rose last time, because it means he sees a future with all of them, and I hate to tell Chris that unless this is turning into Big Love Bachelor, there's still going to be only one proposal whenever this mess runs its course.
So: there's a group date and two "very romantic" one-on-one dates. There won't be a rose given out on any of those dates; it's just about spending time with Jason. Then Chris tries to make it seem like he's pulling the rug out from under everybody by telling them, "All of you will be leaving this house." That's because they're all going to Seattle, which is where the next rose ceremony is going to be. Melissa thankfully explains to us the importance of going to Seattle: "One of us is going to be moving there and starting our life there."
So Jason also explains that it's important the women come to Seattle because it's not just about whether a particular woman is right for him, or just about if they're right for Jason and Ty together, but also about if she "fits" in Seattle, and I'm kind of amazed that moving to where his future temporary-fiancee lives is not at all an option.
There's Jason arriving home, and he's trundled his suitcase like half a mile down the street, just for the purpose of having some video to hang a voiceover on. And there's a sweet reunion between Jason and Ty. "Not having Ty is like not having part of my heart," says Jason, and I wonder how much he thinks about giving up a piece of his heart for the chance to go spend time with the likes of DeAnna and Megan and Lauren. "My favorite part of Seattle is Ty," he says, and I hate to tell Jason that Ty is not exactly the Space Needle. I mean, if you left Seattle, Ty would come with you, Jason.
So Jason is waiting at the hotel entrance for the women's limousine, and I imagine the other guests of this fine establishment appreciated all the squealing and carrying-on as the five drunken bachelorettes spill out of the limousine into the arms of their sugar daddy. To imagine how the women are behaving, think of what it would feel like if you heard there was an accident involving the bus your spouse takes to work every morning, and several people were killed. And now imagine that you rush down to the accident site because you don't know if he or she is OKAY. And then you see the love of your life among the survivors being tended to. The elation and happiness you feel in that moment is approximately half what the women seem to be going through upon seeing Jason standing there. Jillian tells us that she "literally catapulted" out of the limo.
