He walks her out down the hall so she can tell the rest of the women she's going home -- instead of being allowed to leave on her own as ALWAYS happens when a contestant is dumped like this -- and Sarah doesn't manage to make it back without starting to cry. "I'm completely blindsided. I'm just embarrassed," she tells us. She doesn't know what happened. You said you wanted him to meet your family, duh!
She goes back to the room to tell the rest of them she's going home, and she breaks the heart of everyone watching by saying it's always the same thing for her: She's an amazing person and he wants there to be a connection, but there isn't one.
Hate Sean. Hate, hate, hate. Sean's really going to pretend that on a show with the sole purpose of marrying two people, the prospect of meeting a woman's family freaked him out? Especially when one of the signature episodes of this show is the hometown date? LIKE ALL OF THE WOMEN HAVEN'T TALKED ABOUT THEIR FAMILIES? You are never going to convince me that even if Sean legitimately liked her as a person, he ever considered her as a serious contender. He kept her around as long as he felt was necessary to not appear to be an asshole and, when no real reason for dumping her presented itself, he manufactured this nonsense that humiliates her and singles her out, instead of letting her be one of a group of three let go during a normal rose ceremony.
The next morning (or whenever), Desiree gets ready for her date (by packing, in case she has to go home). Daniella in particular is annoyed because Desiree's getting a second one-on-one when Daniella hasn't had one yet. She wonders what Sean's looking for. Well, you've got two arms, Daniella, so that's a plus.
Desiree and Sean hike up Tunnel Mountain, and they're having yet another cheapo picnic date. Well, at least for this one they have to rappel down the mountain. "I am just beyond speechless," says Desiree. You know, whenever a woman on this show says she's speechless, they're always lying, goddammit.
