Unfortunately, Molly shows up, clutching the rose she's already won so she can take Jason away for a chat about what a great time she had on their date. Jason says, "You were just so, like, like, chill," which I think is almost English. Inside, Megan bitches to the other women about Molly coming over, given that she already has a rose. This is one of the aspects of the show that mystifies me the most: the bachelor (or bachelorette) never gets any blame for not simply saying, "Hold on, I'll be with you in a second." Anyway, Erica says if she had a rose already, she wouldn't do that. Moments later (or so it seems) Erica is in the kitchen drunkenly telling Molly, "You do what you have to do. No one's judging you." Both of them are unaware that Natalie is nearby, touching up her makeup and overhears everything. So after Molly leaves, Megan asks her about the discrepancy (while appearing to laugh it off as no big deal).
Erica, who is dressed like Homer Simpson's Vegas wife, denies saying two different things and stomps off into the living room to obnoxiously steamroll everyone into agreeing that she is totally awesome and not two-faced.
This must be one of those times that Nikki wishes Jason could see. But right now, he's talking to her, and she is, again, and rather BORINGLY, running down how unprepared the other women in the house are. "Everybody has got, such unique qualities. I mean, you've got amazing qualities, and they're obvious," says Jason. This is accompanied by a slow pan up Nikki's body, because the camera man knows exactly what Jason is talking about. But not even that body will save Nikki if she doesn't quit with the broken-record routine.
So Erica will just not let the fight go, stomping in and out of the living room and not letting Megan finish a sentence. Having said that, I wonder just exactly what Megan thought it would accomplish to talk about it with Erica in the first place. Erica's thoughts on Megan, in an interview: "That girl is no good." Hilariously, Erica points out this was why the other women voted her out, which means Megan can remind her, "You were second, sweetheart." Erica's comeback: "Yeah, but you know what, probably for a threat, not because we felt bad karma." A threat? Erica? Threat to appear on Jerry Springer someday, maybe. The other women sit around looking decidedly uncomfortable. "The claws are definitely starting to come out, you can see it," says Melissa. Natalie, who is the colour of a brass doorknob, says tension is higher because they all know Jason a little bit better and want him just that little bit more.
