Things I LOVE About Episode 2 and Other Random Thoughts…
I LOVE that Emily brought Ricki to the park for a play date and met with her friends for some girl talk. A girl needs her BFF’s! It sounds like these women will be asking some tough questions of the guys next week on a group date. Who will measure up?
I LOVE Kalon’s comment, “Being in Charlotte is overwhelming. It’s like the frathouse from hell on steroids”. Unfortunately, that is the only slightly entertaining thing that has come out of Kalon’s mouth. Who’s with me on that?
The first date card goes to Ryan!

wearing that apron!
I LOVE that Emily rocked it in her casual wear for the
day part of their date and that they started out their
day making cookies for Ricki’s soccer practice.
|Seriously, how cut are they?|
So real…so Emily…so down-to-earth.
Emily has learned a lesson from her last go-around on the show and the girl means business this time. She asked Ryan some tough questions during the dinner portion of their date. I’m not convinced Ryan passed the test. Are you?
I LOVE their conversation about the “chase” and laughed out loud at Emily’s, “Honey, I’m gonna give you a chase if you ask for it…get on it”! She certainly looks comfortable dancing in his arms!
Having said that, a red flag went up when Emily referenced Ryan to Brad with his good looks and she admitted worrying that Ryan is too perfect. Not a good sign! I was looking for some serious chemistry between these two. Was it an explosion or did it seem to fizzle out?
And the group date goes to The Muppets…with a few guys thrown in!
I LOVE that Emily was so gracious to Charlie when he explained his disability from the accident.
The After Party
Emily thinks Chris is sooo good looking, yet very humble. Chris feels a connection with Emily and thinks there is no one else that shares that.
The tension between Stevie and Kalon builds as they vie for time with Emily. I hope she sends one of them home soon because I’m over the drama between these two.
Since Kermit is Taken, the Group Date Rose Goes to Jef
Emily says either Jef is playing hard to get, or he’s just not that into her.
Jef knows Emily has given him the “look”, but he thinks she’s giving it to a bunch of other guys too. Oh boy, oh boy…
Joe Receives the Last Date of the Episode
|Flying to Emily’s home State of West Virginia|
|Dinner by the “Love” clock at
Greenbriar Resort and Spa
|Emily tearfully sends Joe home and
watches the fireworks alone.
Meanwhile Back at the ranch, the guys discuss taking on the role of being a father. Kalon, the resident expert, thinks Doug put his child on hold to come on the show. Doug tells Kalon to be careful, stop and check it.
Sean feels that Kalon speaks before he thinks and it will eventually get him in trouble. Is this foreshadowing?
Sean is worried becasuse he didn’t get a date this week. He knows how important time with Emily is and starts to doubt himself.
Pretty in Purple at a Cocktail Party
Without a date this week, Arie’s had a tough time hearing the guys telling great stories about the connection they have with Emily.
I LOVE that Emily is nervous around Arie. She has that giddy girl expression during their 1:1 time and tells him that she remembered him this week because he is a very special guy. How cute is it when they return holding hands? She is definitely intrigued by this guy…and I don’t think she is alone. Any team Arie fans out there?
Can I just say how awkward it was that Ryan wrote Emily a seven page letter after one date? Can I just say how awkward it was that Tony stood there waiting for Emily to finish reading the seven page letter? Thanks. I feel better now.
|Gazing upon the faces of her prince charmings|
|Very happy to see someone|
|So relieved to have another rose ceremony over with|
|Looking forward to more dates in Charlotte next week|
|Jef: No heels, no fancy dress…just you
and me and a skateboard
|Emily: Absolutely do not let go|
|Emily: That was awesome, you’re a good teacher|
|Emily: You’re cool, I like hanging out with you|
Next week…According to this press release from ABC Medianet, this one of the most intense first kiss in Bachelorette history! I’m sure it’s also the most dramatic. Guess who?
