‘The Bachelorette’ Season 15, Episode 4 Recap: Cue the Ambulance
*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Last week on The Bachelorette, Hannah Brown sent home Cam after news broke that he was vying for the “pity rose.” And now, the 24-year-old is put to the test when two suitors go head-to-head at the cocktail party.
Here’s what went down in season 15, episode four of the ABC series.
Jed's One-on-One Date
The episode kicks off in Boston, where Brown invites Jed on the first one-on-one date. After strolling through Quincy Market, Brown gives him a tour of the city, which consists of the Bachelorette pointing out landmarks that she was (probably) briefed on prior to filming.
When they sit down for a pint of beer at the iconic “Cheers” bar, Jed opens up about his feelings and reveals that he’s never felt this way about someone before.
“I like being around you,” they say in unison.
For the final leg of the date, Brown takes Jed to the Auerbach Center, which is where the Boston Celtics practice. They meet two players—Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier—before getting suited up and playing a two-on-two game.
At dinner, Brown can hardly contain her “excitement” about Jed. Though it’s obvious he’s struggling with the fact that they’ve spent zero alone time together (no offense, producers), he’s smitten, and there’s no denying it.
The good news is Hannah is too, because she gives him the rose—and immunity until next week’s episode.
The Group Date
Up next, Brown and the men travel to Newport, Rhode Island, where she invites 13 contestants—Luke S., Luke P., Matteo, Grant, Garrett, Kevin, John Paul Jones, Devin, Connor, Dustin, Peter, Mike and Dylan—on the group date.
When they arrive at Fort Adam, home of the champion Newport Rugby Football Club, it’s clear where this is heading: a competitive rugby match.
After splitting into two teams, the men face off against each other, and brutal is an understatement. Not only does John Paul Jones take several nasty spills, but Kevin also gets sent to the hospital with a shoulder injury, so there’s that.
At the after party, Luke S. is still pissed about the rugby match, considering Luke P. was unnecessarily aggressive. (Surprise, surprise.) When Luke P. pulls her aside, he delivers a sob story about how Luke S. “came after” him on the field.
Shortly after, Brown pulls Luke S. aside and demands to know what happened, and he doesn’t hold anything back. When she asks if the other men feel the same way, Luke S. confirms that Luke P. is the bully of the house.
“When it comes to my relationship with Hannah, I’ll never quit on her,” Luke P. tells the producers.
Cut to a montage of the other contestants telling Brown how they really feel about Luke P. Dazed and confused, Brown gives the rose to Garrett.
Tyler C.'s One-on-One Date
Tyler C. is the lucky recipient of the final one-on-one date. Things start off rocky, since Brown is still shaken up about last night’s revelation about Luke P. Luckily, Tyler C. swoops in with an impromptu pep talk about being the guy that “picks her up,” and can someone get him a rose already?
Brown kicks off the date with a boat tour around Rhode Island before fishing for lobsters. “What a catch,” Tyler says. Touché.
Later that night, they sit down for dinner, and Brown wastes no time thanking him for comforting her after the Luke P. drama. She admits that she was unsure about him prior to inviting him on the date, though he completely changed her mind. As a thank you, she gives him the rose.
The Cocktail Party
At the cocktail party, there’s only one thing on everyone’s minds: Luke P., who is still denying there was any wrongdoing. When Mike confronts him, the conversation escalates to the point where Luke P. is speechless.
“You are a psychopath,” Mike says. “That’s who you are.”
When Luke S. enters, Luke P. admits that he lied to Brown about him and promises to set the record straight. So, he pulls her aside and tells her that Luke S. is forcing him to put in a good word for him.
Right on cue, Brown asks to speak with both Lukes alone. Dun dun dun.
Will she choose a side? Or send both men packing? Guess we’ll have to wait until The Bachelorette returns next Tuesday, June 11, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
