Leina sneaks into Byron's place and leaves a letter on his bed. She doesn't even pet the dog! What kind of monster is she? Leina packs her bags and leaves immediately. She didn't even wait and tell Byron face-to-face? I can't believe the producers let her get away with that.
Byron and Jayne say good night, and Byron kisses her on the cheek. Jayne interviews that she feels like she's falling for Byron, but that there are many other woman waiting for him back at the house. Byron and Jayne walk into the house. Byron interviews that he could see himself falling for Jayne, but that she needs to come out of her shell.
Byron walks into his place and greets the dog before reading the letter from Leina. Byron interviews that he knows "the man that [Leina] is with will be very lucky." Finally, someone was gender-specific. Not that it matters, but all the dancing around made me curious. Byron finishes the letter and mutters to himself that it's cool. Sure. It makes his decision easier.
The women sit around and chatter in their evening gowns. As you do. Elizabeth interviews that they're all hoping to get one last chance to talk to Byron before he makes his decision. Chris meets with Byron and reveals that, in a break with tradition, there won't be a party tonight before the Rose Ceremony. Chris says that because Byron lives with the women, he's already had a chance to get to know them better. Sure, during that...thirty seconds that he ate one bite of a sandwich. Has he spent any more time with them besides that? Chris throws Byron a bone and says that he'll be allowed to choose three women to have some one-on-one time with before the Rose Ceremony. Chris refers to it as a "last chance." Byron chooses Natalie, Jayne, and Kristie. Hey, Jayne already got a date! I don't know what that's all about.
Chris walks into the house, and all of the women go, "Heeeeeeeey!" like they are happy to see him. Chris says that tonight will be different, and the women groan. Chris explains about the whole "no party" thing, and the women who didn't get dates look pissed. Chris tries to make it more dramatic by saying that some of the women have said their last words to Byron -- ever! It sounds like he's planning to kill them off later. And maybe he is. Wende smirks. Chris tells them that Byron chose Natalie, Jayne, and Kristie to speak with one last time, and that Natalie will go first.
Natalie and her black pantsuit walk out to Byron's pad. She interviews that it seemed somewhat negative, like Byron was on the fence about her. Byron asks Natalie how she's feeling about everything. Natalie says that she has reservations about Byron's previous marriage. Byron thinks it would be weird if he hadn't married by the age of forty, and that it shows that he can make a commitment. I see his point, but...no. I'd rather have someone who had been in relationships, but never been married. Natalie's hair is weird. She has a lot of short layers on the top, in an '80s style, and then the rest is pulled back, but shaggily. Natalie says that she wants to marry someone and stay married for life. As if most people who get married go into it assuming it will end in divorce. Byron interviews that he doesn't have "a solid connection" with Natalie. Kiss of death!
