Chris Harrison greets the remaining hostages by saying "Congratulations" for some reason, and then tells them there's a group-sex date, a one-on-one and a two-on-one. They all groan because they know what the "two-on-one" means. Most of them probably can't identify their Congressperson, but they know what a two-on-one date on The Bachelor means.
They're all going to Montana, maybe because the relatively sparse population means they can't spread venereal disease as rapidly out there? Or Montana drew the short straw?
Sean arrives in Montana in a seaplane, and tells us what an "outdoorsy" guy he is, and how this is going to be rough on some of these delicate flowers that he's dating. Meanwhile, the women are likewise arriving in Whitefish and scaring away all wildlife by screeching uncontrollably.
The first date card is discovered: It's for Lindsay. "Let love soar. Sean" is what it says, and Lindsay cries a little because it means so much for her to get that little extra attention, which is not unlike a lobster being excited to be plucked from the tank. Sean arrives to pick her up, and they walk out to where a helicopter is waiting on the lawn. "Is that a helicopter?" asks Lindsay. She's ... not sure if it's a helicopter? The other women all go out on the deck to watch the helicopter take off, like this doesn't happen every week on this show.
They go to Glacier National Park, which is a great choice in that their bodies wouldn't be found for years. Lindsay says she's never felt so close to somebody as Sean, which makes me feel inestimably sad for Lindsay.
They have a picnic on a mountain or some damn thing, and it looks like they're freezing, and then they start making out. "I'm just feeling so happy and blessed," Lindsay tells us.
And then later at the lodge, Sean is toasting to an incredible day and an even more special night. All they've really done is gone from lying on the grass to lying in front of a fireplace. Sean asks about her being an Army brat, and she talks about her father being gone for much of her "adolescence" and how she moved around a lot. And now that that's done with, they get back to ramming their tongues down each other's throat.
Back in the women's lodge, a group-sex-date card arrives, and AshLee reads it out: "You make my heart race..." It's for Selma, AshLee, Desiree, Catherine, Sarah, Lesley, Robyn and Daniella. AshLee, for one, is a little surprised at how gleeful Tierra is at going on the two-on-one date. I mean, say what you want about Tierra -- at least she's confident. At least for now.
