Tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette picks up where we left off last week – Shawn Booth pays Nick Viall a visit at his hotel room to curse him out. Shawn accuses Nick of being an “asshole” and says that he knows he joined the show for the wrong reasons and he doesn’t really love Kaitlyn. Nick Viall points out that he and Shawn Booth aren’t that different – he reminds Shawn that just the other day he was bragging about being “eskimo brothers” with a famous country singer and sleeping with the same woman as him in one night. Shawn gets irritated and storms out.
Meanwhile, Kaitlyn is over the drama between Shawn and Nick – she wants to focus on her overnight date with Ben Higgins, because he is “easy” and she knows that he isn’t a player. Kaitlyn meets up with Ben and they head to a stable and go on a romantic horse ride together. It’s Kaitlyn’s first time riding a horse, but Ben raves that she is a natural. They ride their horses down a trail to a field, and find some donkeys. They hop off their horses, and feed the donkeys. And, then they get chased through the field by the donkeys. After their brush with death in the field of donkeys, Ben and Kaitlyn have a quick makeout session and then ride their horses to a castle.
Ben and Kaitlyn sit down for a picnic at the castle, Ben confesses that he is falling in love with her – he says that he can’t wait to start a life with her. Kaitlyn is smitten with what Ben is saying, she leans in to kiss him and can’t believe how perfect their day has been going – she gushes that it is like a fairytale. Kaitlyn reveals to Ben that they are going to have dinner together in the castle, and that is where their overnight date is going to take place.
Later that night Ben and Kaitlyn meet up at the Irish Castle, Kaitlyn gives him the grand tour and then they sit down together to have a romantic dinner. While they are eating Ben confesses to Kaitlyn that he turned 26 years old and his birthday was while they were filming the show. He was scared to tell Kaitlyn because he didn’t want her to think that he was too young – she is going to be 30 years old in two months. Kaitlyn reassures hi that age isn’t an issue, and they reminisce about all of the fun that they have had together while they were doing the show. Ben says that he feels lucky every single time he has gotten to spend time with her since the show began. Kaitlyn takes out the overnight date card and invites Ben to spend the night with her at the fantasy suite in the castle. Ben happily accepts her invitation and says that it is going to be the “best sleepover ever.”
After their sleepover in the fantasy suite, Ben and Kaitlyn have breakfast together before they say their goodbyes and he leaves the castle. After Ben is gone, Kaitlyn feels more confused than ever about the decision she has to make. She never expected to fall in love with Ben, and now she is going to have to send him, Shawn, or Nick home.
Later that day Kaitlyn goes to pick Shawn up for their overnight date. Kaitlyn surprises Shawn with a present, he opens it and is thrilled to see that it is an outfit to wear golfing. Kaitlyn and Shawn put on their hideous golfing outfits and hop in a golf cart and head to the greens. Before they tee off, Kaitlyn makes a bet with Shawn. She says that if she wins, she gets “whatever she wants.” And, if he wins he gets to “give her whatever she wants.” Shawn is impressed with Kaitlyn’s golf skills, and thinks that she is definitely “wife material” since she can hit the ball.
After they are done playing golf – they sit down to play truth or dare. Shawn chooses dare, and Kaitlyn dares him to take off his clothes and play golf naked. While he is teeing off completely naked, Kaitlyn grabs his clothes and runs away with them – so he chases her across the golf course trying to get his underwear.
Once Shawn Booth gets dressed, he and Kaitlyn head to a romantic dinner together. Kaitlyn asks Shawn about his feud with Nick, she wants to know why they hate each other so much. Shawn confesses that he went to Nick’s hotel room and they had a huge argument. Shawn tells her everything that they talked about, and he says that Nick just proved what he thought all along – that he is just an “asshole.” Shawn is furious when he hears that Nick has been talking behind his back like a “16 year old girl.” Shawn is not happy – so Kaitlyn takes him to the fantasy suite so that they can talk about it off-camera.
The next morning Shawn Booth leaves the fantasy suite, and he still looks angry. He heads back to his hotel room and Nick Viall is waiting for him outside – he wants to chat with Shawn. Shawn threatens Nick and tells him to “keep his name out of his mouth.” Shawn won’t let Nick get a word in edgewise and tells him that he is the “last person he wants to see or talk to,” then he shouts at Nick to “get the f—k out of his face.” Nick takes his cue, and leaves.
It’s time for the final rose ceremony in Ireland. Nick, Shawn, and Ben line up and wait for Kaitlyn to pass out the final two roses. Kaitlyn has a meltdown and rushes out of the room to cry, Chris Harrison chases after her and comforts her and convinces her to finish the rose ceremony. Kaitlyn heads back inside and hands out her final two roses to Nick VIall and Shawn Booth – Ben Higgins is officially eliminated from The Bachelorette. Kaitlyn walks him out and they say their goodbyes.
After the rose ceremony Kaitlyn flies out to a resort in Utah where she will be meeting Nick and Shawn’s families. She has a lot of stress over the feud between Nick and Shawn, she is worried that it might get in the way of their dates in Utah. When Kaitlyn arrives in Utah, she meets up with Nick Viall first. He explains to her that when he was on Andi’s season of The Bachelorette – he began doubting whether or not she was “the one” for him when they got down to the final two. This time around, he doesn’t have any doubts about Kaitlyn because he knows that he is “totally in love with her.”
Nick takes Kaitlyn to the suite at the resort where his family is staying, he introduces her to his parents – and all of his brothers and sisters, even his baby sister Bella. Nick’s family is skeptical about him joining the show again, they don’t want him to get hurt again like he did with Andi Dorfman. Nick’s sister Olivia is scared that Kaitlyn is going to blindside him like Andi did. Olivia takes Kaitlyn aside to question her about her intentions with Nick. Kaitlyn insists that her feelings for Nick are genuine. Olivia is impressed by how real and authentic Kaitlyn is, and thinks that they will make a good couple. Kaitlyn even sits down with Nick’s little sister Bella. She demands to know if Kaitlyn is in love with Nick – and Kaitlyn promises her that she really really really cares about Nick.
Nick reassures his mother that he and Kaitlyn’s relationship is the real deal, it’s nothing like what happened last season with Andi. Nick says tells his mom that he doesn’t think he is going to get hurt, and he is 99% sure that Kaitlyn is in love with him.
Now, it’s time for Kaitlyn to meet Shawn Booth’s family. Shawn introduces Kaitlyn to his dad Steve, and his sisters Meghan and Jessie. Shawn’s Aunt Carolyn also tagged along to meet The Bachelorette. Shawn’s family is thrilled when they hear that Shawn is one of the final two guys. Kaitlyn sits down with Shawn’s sisters and they question her about her intentions with him. She is determined to wow them because she knows that their opinions are very important to Shawn. Afterwards, Shawn’s sisters give him the green light and tell him that Kaitlyn is definitely a good match for him. They think that he and Kaitlyn are the “yin and the yang.”
Shawn’s dad is skeptical about the whole process, he takes Shawn outside and asks him what has been going on. Shawn explains that Kaitlyn told him he was “the one” weeks ago, and they had a connection the moment that he stepped out of the limo. Shawn reveals that no girl has ever made him feel the way that Kaitlyn makes him feel. After some convincing Shawn’s dad finally gives him his blessing.
After meeting Shawn’s parents, he and Kaitlyn get some alone time together. Shawn tells her that he lied to her while they were in Texas. He told her that he was “falling in love with her her.” But, the truth is that he has been in love with her for quite a while. Kaitlyn is thrilled, and relieved, she really thought that Shawn was going to say something else. After Shawn is done professing his love to Kaitlyn – she leans in for a kiss.
Now, Kaitlyn is even more confused than ever before. She has no idea who she will choose – Shawn or Nick. She heads back to her hotel room and breaks down in tears because she doesn’t want to have to break up with either guy, and now their families are involved in the process and she doesn’t want to hurt them too.
