Who Will Hannah Brown Choose? New ‘Bachelorette’ Episode Ends with Shocking Decision
*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Last week on The Bachelorette, Hannah Brown did what no star has done before and called off the hometown date rose ceremony, leaving her with four remaining contestants: Jed, Luke, Peter and Tyler.
And now, the 24-year-old beauty queen comes face-to-face with the highly anticipated Fantasy Suites. Here’s what went down in season 15, episode ten of the popular dating series.
The episode opens on Brown taking the final four contestants to Crete, Greece. Right away, Brown invites Peter on the first one-on-one date, where they take a sailing tour around the area. (And yes, they recreate the boat scene from Titanic.)
Peter can hardly find the words to describe how special today is, saying, “The most beautiful girl…sailing the Mediterranean.” However, Brown isn’t fully convinced that Peter is ready to be engaged. Not only is he still holding back on his feelings, but he also has yet to drop any l-bombs.
Later that night, the couple sits down for dinner, and Peter wastes no time diving into a cheesy speech about how “fate” brought them together. After raving about their “solid” relationship, Peter admits that he struggles to open up. However, now that Brown has met his family, he’s confident that he’s madly in love with her. *Cue the steamy make-out session*
Right on cue, Brown pulls out an envelope inviting them to stay in the Fantasy Suite. They happily accept before heading to a windmill-cum-hotel-room (take note, people), where they settle in for the night.
The next day, Brown and Peter wake up to a pile of clothes on the floor. According to the couple, the night couldn’t have gone better.
“Last night was the best night of my life,” Peter says.
When Brown meets up with Tyler, one thing’s for sure: The physical chemistry isn’t lacking whatsoever. After the Bachelorette reveals that she planned a relaxing date, she takes him to a Greek spa, where they strip down for a couples massage.
When Tyler sees that Brown has her eyes closed, he takes advantage of the situation. At first, it looks like a kind gesture, with Tyler sneaking over to her bedside and rubbing her legs. But the way the masseuse quietly shows Tyler what to do before exiting the room proves that the producers knew exactly what they were doing. (Well played.)
“Tyler, you’re making me blush,” Brown says.
In an interview with producers, Brown admits that she’s concerned their relationship is too physical. While there’s no denying their sexual tension, she wants to know that it’s more than that.
At dinner, Brown doesn’t hold back on telling Tyler how she feels. Although she wants nothing more than to kiss and hold him when they’re together, she wants to explore other aspects of their relationship.
Brown says that she doesn’t want to have sex with him in the Fantasy Suite because that’s not what they need. Tyler assures her that all he wants to do is spend time with her, and he’d never pressure her into doing anything.
So, they head to a yacht, where they drink Champagne before falling asleep.
“I want you to be the last person I wake up to…forever,” Tyler says.
Next, Jed embarks on his one-on-one date with Brown. The problem? He’s still pissed about last week’s episode, when it came down to him and Luke before Brown decided to call off the rose ceremony.
Drama aside, Brown and Jed kick off their date by crashing a Greek family gathering, which consists of dancing, chatting and—you guessed it—drinking. When Jed pulls Brown aside, he reveals that he can’t move forward without getting clarity about Luke.
“I just don’t fully understand how you can be as amazing as you are and even consider someone like him,” he says.
Brown tries to explain how she feels about Luke. Although she doesn’t know if he’ll make it to the end, she’s not ready to let him go yet. Jed still doesn’t understand, but the show must go on.
That night, Brown thanks Jed for being honest earlier that day. Nevertheless, she reminds him that it’s not his decision to make. When Jed admits that he’s worried about Brown because she’s stuck on something that’s bad for her, Brown excuses herself from the conversation, saying, “I’m really frustrated.”
When she finally returns, Brown reveals that while she understands his frustration, Jed needs to trust her. He promises to follow suit before saying, “I love you.”
After agreeing to the Fantasy Suite date card, the couple heads to a poolside villa, where they spend their very first night together.
Last but not least, Brown takes Luke on the final one-on-one date. To no surprise, Luke is as confident as ever.
“I know that she knows that I’m the one,” Luke tells the producers.
This time, they travel to Santorini via helicopter, where they receive an aerial tour before exploring the area on foot. “We are completely entangled in every way,” Brown says.
When they sit down for dinner, Luke doesn’t waste any time telling Brown how he really feels about her physical relationships with the other men.
“So, let’s talk about sex,” he says. And then adds, “And if you have had sex with one or multiple of these guys, I would be wanting to go home. 100 percent.”
Brown admits that while sex is a very big deal for her, she doesn’t agree with his opinion. “Why do you have the right to do that? Because you’re not my husband,” she says.
After reminding him that she’s a “grown woman” and can make her own decisions, Brown reveals that she’s reached her breaking point.
“The words that you’re saying are just really not OK,” she says.
At long last, Brown is finally ready to send Luke home. When she tries to walk him out, Luke attempts to change her mind to no avail.
Before he leaves, Brown tells him exactly what he didn’t want to hear, saying, “I have had sex and—honestly—Jesus still loves me.”
She goes on to rave about her sex life in a conversation with producers, saying, “I f***ed in a windmill, and guess what? We did it a second time!”
Luke, to no surprise, leaves with his head hanging low.
Well…that was a doozy. The Bachelorette returns to ABC next Monday, July 22, followed by The Men Tell All special.
