So I feel like the conversation for last night’s episode is so similar to last week still. All about Luke! Ugh. I can’t wait to hear what you guys think. Let’s jump right in!
The Battle of the Lukes
I want to say right off the bat that Luke S has nothing to be ashamed about. He said in the episode that Luke P made him look really, really bad. And yes maybe that’s true that Luke P made Luke S look bad to Hannah. But Luke S is a standup guy in my opinion, and I think most viewers would agree with me. I feel sorry for him that he was dragged into all Luke P’s BS. And I applaud him for holding his head up high and choosing to go home. Not everybody is going to agree with me on this one. But I think he just knew that it wasn’t fair between him and Hannah and I think on top of that he knew he probably couldn’t recover from the situation. He was dealt a really shitty hand and he left with his head high. I also thought it was really nice how respectfully he told Hannah to keep her eyes open. It seemed like he genuinely wanted to give her advice.
The Rose Ceremony
And as we all know now, Luke P got a rose. I know a lot of you probably speculated that Luke S was also going to get one, and think that’s why they took away a rose at the beginning of the ceremony after he left. But I don’t think that’s necessarily true. At this point in the game you want to send way more guys home each rose ceremony then you’re allowed to. And I know that sounds harsh but it’s just the truth. Like do you honestly think that she think she’s going to end up with Dylan or Dustin at this point? I bet the majority of you don’t even know who those two people are. Because they get barely any screen time. Because she’s just not into them and isn’t forming relationships with them. I guarantee if she could have, she would’ve sent both of them home tonight too. So when Luke S left on his own, it allowed for more drama by adding speculation that by taking another rose away it makes it seem like he would’ve gotten one. Trust me, Hannah wishes production took at least three more roses away.
And even though I knew Luke was going to get a rose even before she gave it to him, I was still holding my breath just hoping he wouldn’t say his name. He is just the worst! I know she knows that deep down. But since they had such a strong connection from the get-go I think she’s just not willing to say goodbye just yet. But I have faith that she will figure it out and send him home.
I love that Jed put Luke in his place. It’s not a secret that he’s my favorite of the season! If he doesn’t end up with Hannah, I really hope he’s the next Bachelor!
But the main thing that had me surprised during this whole bar scene was that the guys got to go to a bar in the first place! When I was on the show, if you weren’t on a date, you didn’t get to leave the hotel! Heck, you didn’t get to leave the hotel room! The only time I was ever able to leave the hotel room if I wasn’t on a date is when they let me go to the gym supervised one time. There’s a reason people go crazy on the show. And that’s because they’re locked up like animals! Ha! I’m serious! I bet the guys felt like it was Christmas morning that they got to go to a pub and have a beer even if it meant they had to talk to Luke P.
The very first thing I notice about Hannah‘s date with Mike is that when they walked into the candy shop, the whiskey bar, and the restroom, she always walked in front of him. I feel like if she were with Peter, Jed, or even Luke P, she would’ve been holding their hands walking in. She just didn’t really seem super connected to him physically right off the bat.
I feel like I’ve heard her say multiple times that she felt very comfortable with him. But the way she said it just seemed like she was talking about her friend and not someone she was romantically interested in. I think she also talked about being comfortable with Jed, but when she said it she had hearts in her eyes and I’m pretty sure giggled while saying it. When she says it about Mike it’s almost like she’s trying to convince us and him that something is there when it’s not.
Which is fine! Just because they don’t have chemistry doesn’t mean they’re not both awesome people! I’ve had plenty of guys in my life that we’re great friends but I was not romantically interested in at all! That said, they are damn good catches and the women that landed them are super lucky woman. And that’s how I feel about Mike. I think whoever ends up with him is going to be super lucky! But it’s just not Hannah.
When I saw that this was going to be a date with the wrestling in it, I just rolled my eyes. I get that the Highland Games are a Scottish tradition (and I enjoyed all of the competitions except for the wrestling). But I just don’t understand why they had this date and the rugby date in back to back episodes. It’s just too much. I don’t care for it.
And as much as I love Jed (is that not clear yet? Ha!), his wrestling move on Hannah was very strange. I thought he was going to pick her up and gently lay her on top of him. I don’t think it turned out like he meant to do. Ha! Although Hannah sent some very clear signals to all the guys that she’s super into Jed when she kissed him in front of everybody.
While I appreciate Peter’s attempt at a really hot and steamy moment on the pool table with Hannah, it failed miserably! From the get go! The way he pushed the balls to the side so calculated really just set it up for failure of the gecko. Never mind the fact that he hit his head on the lamp. But I just find him so endearing and precious that I can’t help but love him. He reminds me of a little brother. I found myself smiling and laughing throughout the whole thing.
I’m not trying to be a prude, but I thought Hannah took the super passionate making out too far on the group date. She had very sexual steamy make out sessions with Jed, Peter, and Tyler C. To the point where I felt it would’ve turned into much more if they weren’t on a group date. I honestly don’t ever remember kissing anybody like that except the guy I chose in the end. I could be wrong. And this isn’t meant to be something where I say what I did is better than what she’s doing. I just think that the point of dating multiple people is to get to know multiple people – I kind of felt like she was just taking advantage of getting to make out hard-core with multiple guys. And if it was the Bachelor doing that and the tables were turned, I would annoyed with him t00. I don’t know. I’m on the fence about this. Part of me says go for it girl! But the mom side of me thinks it’s inappropriate.
But I will say this, there’s no handbook on how to be the Bachelorette. You just go with what feels right in the moment. And I’m sure that’s exactly what Hannah is doing.
Before Luke left for his date with Hannah he tried to be civil with the guys. But it’s just too late. He’s dug his whole too deep to be able to have any sort of normal conversation with them. He thinks that he can go back but he can’t after everything he’s done. And then when he was on the date with Hannah, he said that everything he said is blown out of proportion by all the guys now. And I kind of agree with him. But he deserves it. He has shown time and time again that he can’t be trusted and that he’s a liar. So he’s right – he can’t say or do anything right at this point.
The second that Hannah said that this was either her first date with her future husband or her first and last one-on-one date with Luke made me think right away that he be going home. They wouldn’t have shown that on the show otherwise, right? Otherwise she would be saying she’s picking him in the end. The show would kind of be over.
But as we saw from the previews we have not seen the last of Luke. In fact, I think all the fighting that was happening with the guys was still with Luke. They just didn’t show him in the preview. I’m guessing she didn’t give him the rose but she didn’t send him home either.
Tell me what you think!
I’m so over the entire situation with him. I found their date infuriating because he kept saying the same thing over and over and over again. And then Hannah kept saying the same thing over and over and over again. Let’s discuss!
Oh! Because you know I love talking outfits….
Here are a few pieces she wore in tonight’s episode, along with some more affordable versions!
And while you’re here make sure to check out some of my cute looks from my blog last week! The office look below is honestly one of my favorites ever!
Truly this is one of my favorite looks ever, and I wanted to make sure you all see it. Ha! I love that the blazer can make an otherwise pretty simple outfit elevated and perfect for work. The cami tank is also so cute and delicate with the floral and scallop detailing! Also can we talk about how amazing the heart earrings are?!
