That night, he meets her for dinner. They, of course, are dropped off half a mile from each other and have to walk the distance. The effect is wearing off. She's in a lovely cocktail. He is in a sweater and jeans. Still underdressed, still not doing anything about it. Melissa says that she thought the date had ended earlier, so she's excited.
They go to a private room in a restaurant in Queenstown. Would that be the restaurant named "Studio Set?" Love that place. More family talk. She says that she's the black sheep (term suggested by Jason, who knows if she really knows what it means) of the family, but she talks to her brother at least 5 times a week. And she sees her parents 2 or 3 times a week. Not bad for a black sheep. So it looks like he's thinking that her parents not meeting him is about her lack of closeness to them rather than their respect for proper courtship and dignity in general. I think he's wrong. She tells him that she was terrified to tell him that he wasn't meeting her parents.
She asks if the parents thing is a big deal. It is, but he liked meeting her friends. Jason gives her the "fantasy suite" invitation. She accepts. Has anyone considered that this show might be a argument for polygamy? Just wondering.
At the suite, she tells him that she's scared of all that she's feeling. She says she has never felt like this. He keeps giving her a look that is half sweet, half frightening. She says she loves him and he kisses her. He tells us that he can't open up completely unless he knows that the girl is all the way there. Really? How douche-y. He tells us that he's "completely falling for her." Lots of making out. He says he can't get enough of her. He closes the blinds to their suite, sealing his fate with her parents.
The next day, we see shirtless Jason grooming. He wears a suit for the rose ceremony. He says he could envision all three of the girls as his wife. Life with each of them would be a different path -- he just has to decide what path he wants. Chris asks him how he liked New Zealand. He loved it. He can't believe he is interested in the three girls. He says that Jill is looking for her best friend, but he's looking for "more" than that. He thought that Molly was distant, but she opened up. He says he doesn't know if he could propose to Melissa without meeting her family.
Whoever gets a rose will meet his son and family. He tells Chris that he doesn't know what he's going to do, which I'm not sure I believe. Chris tells Jason that each girl made a private video message for him. Jill thanks him for their time together. She is in awe of him. She has never CONNECTED with anyone like she has with Jason. She says she'll cook for him. Molly thanks him for the New Zealand date. She's madly in love with him. Melissa says it's easy to be herself around Jason. She loves him and thanks him for being him. He says he has "fallen" for all of them.
