After the commercial break, Brad has finally figured out that Emily is not OK with this, and he takes her aside to talk to her about what's going on, and she tells him that Ricky was a driver, and it was actually a crash at this speedway that ended his career. Brad feels like a jerk, which is the first time he's said anything that makes sense, but it's not like it's only because of this.
And Brad tells her she doesn't have to do this, but she insists on doing it, so she gets in the damn car, and she cries. "I'm really just thinking about how much I miss Ricky," says Emily. Marry her, Brad! Brad checks on her one last time before she drives off on the track, and by the time she's done she's magically over her dead fiancé.
And now it's time for dinner, or as Britt calls it for some reason, the "after party," and thank god the Las Vegas Motor Speedway doesn't have a roof, because you know that's where dinner would be. And by this point the women are a little tired of Emily getting all of Brad's attention because he pulls her aside again. Alli in particular is all, "We've ALL got problems." And we watch the conversation between Brad and Emily, and it's the most painful, awkward conversation, with Brad raising the thorny issue of how he can't compete with the love of her life who died six years ago.
Emily seems a little put out by this, both in the conversation and in talking-heads, where she essentially says, "Here we go again, all I do is cry every time something reminds me of the love of my life who died six years ago, and my date runs for the hills, seen it a million times." Seems a little unfair to be grouchy about a potential new boyfriend not being able to handle your shit when you yourself can't. "I am just so ready for this not to be an issue in my life anymore," says Emily, because she drove around a racetrack and now she's OK with everything.
