Hannah Brown Faces a Dreaded 3-on-1 Date in New ‘Bachelorette’ Episode

*Warning: Spoilers ahead*

Last week on The Bachelorette, Luke P. caused a scene after Hannah Brown went bungee jumping with Garrett…with no clothes on. And now, the 24-year-old beauty queen’s decision-making skills are put to the test when she’s faced with a dreaded three-on-one date.

Here’s what went down in season 15, episode eight of the popular dating series.

The installment picks up right where we left off in episode seven, with Brown taking her seven remaining contestants to Amsterdam. The problem? Today is a big week, since the Bachelorette is supposed to choose which four families she’ll meet during next week’s hometown dates.

Brown invites Jed on the first one-on-one date of the episode. “He didn’t bring his guitar, did he?” Garrett asks. Answer: Probably.

After exploring the city, Brown takes Jed on a romantic boat tour along the area’s famous canals, where they make out in public and chat with locals about how long they’ve known each other. (Not long.)

Later that night, they sit down for dinner and ramble through small talk until Brown starts to get emotional.  

“I have feelings for multiple people here,” she says. “And I don’t know what to do.”

Brown apologizes for holding back with Jed, even though she feels strongly for him. He assures her that what they have is special and promises that he won’t ever let her forget it. She eats it up and gives Jed the rose after telling him that she’s “falling in love” with him. 

“My heart just fell through the Earth,” Jed says. “I’ll be back later.”

Next, Brown enlists Tyler for the second one-on-one date. However, when he learns that they’re going to explore The Hague on horseback, Tyler proves that he’s not as fearless as he appears.

“I’m a little nervous around these things,” he says.

Nevertheless, his terror doesn’t stop him from mounting the horse and trying (and failing) to tell it what to do. Things get even more interesting when Tyler vomits after tasting a Dutch delicacy: pickled herring. (Poor guy.)

Later on, Brown presses him for more information about his past, which prompts Tyler to explain that he never opens up to anyone. Although he blames it on his parents’ divorce, he believes that his upbringing is what made him who he is today.

“My biggest fear is to fail in marriage,” Tyler says.

Brown thanks him for opening up and then gives him the rose.

Mike (& Connor)

When Brown invites Mike on the last one-on-one date, Connor makes the amateur mistake of paying an unexpected visit to her hotel room. Connor explains that he’s disappointed that he didn’t get a solo date, which is why he’s taking matters into his own hands.

Brown admits that Connor doesn’t stand out in group settings, saying, “You’ve kind of faded in the group dates.” Although he goes on to confess his feelings about her, Brown reveals that she doesn’t think their connection is strong enough to meet his family and proceeds to send him home. Ouch.

The next day, Brown takes Mike on a bike tour around the city before bringing him to The Mauritshuis Museum, where they browse the stunning paintings of the Old Masters.

When the artist suggests they paint each other, the couple happily agrees. Of course, the portraits end up looking like Abe Lincoln and Michael Jackson. But hey, A for effort.

Later on, Mike apologizes for his behavior earlier in the day and blames it on nerves. He explains that he’s anxious since he could potentially get down on one knee in a few weeks.

In an interview with producers, Brown admits that she doesn’t know if her feelings for Mike are quite there. “I don’t know what I would say,” she says, referring to Mike’s impending proposal.

That night, Brown immediately cuts to the chase and breaks down in tears, explaining that she’s extremely overwhelmed. “Can I just give you a hug?” Mike says.

“I needed a hug,” Brown responds. When he asks her if she’s OK, she says she’s not because she doesn’t want to send him home even though she knows she has to. Mike thanks her for being honest before excusing himself.

The Three-on-one Date

For the final date of the episode, Brown invites Garrett, Peter and Luke on a three-on-one date. (May the odds be ever in your favor, gentlemen.)

When they sit down for a glass of Champagne, Luke wastes no time stealing Brown away. He immediately starts trash talking the other contestants, claiming that everyone is out to get him—particularly Tyler, Jed and Garrett.

“I just, like, don’t get why people won’t be kind to you,” Brown says through tears.

When Garrett pulls her aside, he admits that he hasn’t been sleeping ever since their one-on-one date. Brown transitions the conversation to Luke, demanding to know if Garrett is being fake nice to him. Although Garrett denies any wrongdoing, Brown appears to take Luke’s side, claiming that fake people are her pet peeve.

“It’s the Luke P. show right now,” Garrett says. “And it’s not fair.”

Garrett returns to the group and confronts Luke for throwing him under the bus. “If Hannah asks me a question, I’m going to answer it,” Luke says. When Garrett calls him a “weasel” and a “snake,” Luke explodes on his fellow contestant.

“I’ve been nothing but truthful with Hannah, and you are not going to mess it up,” Luke screams in his face.  

Just then, Brown gives the first rose to Peter, proving that drama never gets the contestants anywhere. 

That night, Luke, Garrett and Brown enjoy dinner, all while trying to ignore the elephant in the room: the rose sitting in the middle of the table. When Luke pulls her aside, he dives into a story about how he previously struggled with alcohol and sex addiction. He soon realized that he was chasing unfulfilled desires and decided to change his mindset in an attempt to achieve a healthier lifestyle. 

When Brown sits down with Garrett, he reminds her of his feelings. “You make me feel some type of way, Hannah Brown,” he says before dropping the first l-bomb of the season. 

“I love you,” Garrett adds.

At the end of the night, Brown surprises everyone and gives the rose to Luke, ultimately sending home Garrett.

So, whose family will blow their chances at finding love? Be sure to tune into The Bachelorette next Monday, July 8, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
