Sean needs a little more than just what Tierra has to say, so he asks Lesley, who cautiously says Tierra is much colder to the other women when he's not around.
Anyway, Harrison comes in to take Sean away for decision-making time, Sean whining about how tough tonight has been on him -- maybe the most self-centered Bachelor ever? -- and he mopes off to decide to eliminate a contestant or two who is not Tierra. The other women do have some hope that rose or not, Sean may have gotten a glimpse at Tierrable's true personality. And hey, since Sean's not exactly a stickler for so-called "rules," who's to say he won't send her home anyway?
Oh, and now Sean's sitting down with Chris Harrison, so just hang on and let me get my remote control because this is always death. Sean does seem to be having doubts about Tierra. Hey, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
Rose ceremony! Harrison appears to blame the women for the fact that the happy-go-lucky Sean who Chris Harrison fell in love with has been gone recently. Out comes Sean -- who isn't wearing a Bauhaus T-shirt or anything, but he feels he's leaving this week with more questions.
Anyway, enough with the doom and gloom. Let's hand out roses! Selma, Catherine, Lesley. Long, long, long pause, and then AshLee, followed by Sarah, now there's just one left. It goes to Desiree -- pardon me, "Des" -- eliminating Robyn. Sean walks her outside. "Be scared," Selma whispers.
Sean walks Robyn out to the waiting limo, and sees her off with a curt "Best of luck, OK?" which genuinely made me laugh. Such warmth! Robyn can't believe he sent her home in favor of Tierra. Well, actually, he chose everyone else over you, Robyn, but no need to split hairs. Besides, I see you're crying now, so I'm just going to look away and not feel so awkward.
Sean tells us he's now questioning everything, and you can tell he's really bummed because he doesn't toast the remaining women and explain what they're doing next. Well, as long as everyone's miserable, I guess I'm OK with it.
