Tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette kicks off where we left off last night. Evan just ratted Chad Johnson out to Chris Harrison. He whined that Chad was dangerous and no one felt comfortable living in the house with him. While Chris is outside talking to Chad, the guys all gather around the window and eavesdrop, they are certain that Chris is sending Chad home. But…he doesn’t.

Chad comes back inside and makes a half-hearted apology, he tells the guys that there won’t be any more problems as long as they leave him alone and stop antagonizing him. Seems sensible. But, Evan just can’t let it go. He grumbles that Chad still owes him an apology and a new shirt. Chad laughs and tells Evan he will give him $20, and tells him to stop lying, he still insists that Evan pushed him first.

Jojo arrives at the mansion for the pool party with the guys, she strips down to her bikini and everything seems to go smoothly, there isn’t too much drama behind the guys. So far so good. Somehow Evan dives in to the pool and gives himself a bloody nose. They all crack jokes as he heads to the bathroom to clean up.

Jojo sneaks away to make out with Jordan behind the house. She confesses to Jordan that she really likes him and says that she thinks meeting him was “too good to be true.” Jordan reassures Jojo that it’s not an act, he has feelings for her too. Jordan needs to work on opening up more, he wants to make sure that Jojo realizes how much he likes her.

Jojo is impressed with how well Chad is behaving, she sits down with him for some 1-on-1 time. Chad insists that it’s the other guys that stir up drama. While they are talking, Evan interrupts their chat. Chad is not impressed, and he stomps off. Jojo tells Evan that she doesn’t understand what his problem is with Chad…he seems fine.

Chad is getting upset, he’s sick of everyone complaining about him to Jojo. He overhears Jojo and Derek talking about him, he confronts him later in the kitchen. Derek insists that Jojo is the one that brought it up.

Chad calls Derek out in to the hallway, Derek insists that he wasn’t trying to sabotage him. Apparently, Derek used to be Chad’s roommate, but he moved out of the room. Chad mocks Derek for being scared of him. Derek accuses Chad of just joining the show to be on TV and not caring about Jojo. Chad shouts at him to stop talking to Jojo about him and storms off.

It’s finally time for the rose ceremony, Evan, James, and Chase already have roses. Jojo passes out roses to Grant, Derek, Jordan, Luke, Robbie, Wells, James F, Vinny, Daniel, Alex, and Chad. That means that Nick, Christian, and Ali are officially eliminated. They say their goodbyes, and no one is happy that Chad is still in the house. After the guys leave, Jojo tells them to pack their bags – she says that they are leaving Los Angeles, but she won’t tell them where their next destination is.

Jojo arrives in Pennsylvania at Nemacolin Woodland Resort. The guys arrive at the resort a few hours later and get settled in to their lodge. The first date card arrives, Luke is going on the first 1-on-1 date. The date card teases, “I like you very ‘Mush.’” Of rouse, the other guys are jealous that he is getting alone time with the Bachelorette.

Jojo and Luke go for a romantic dog sled ride in the woods, then Jojo surprises Luke with a hot tub. It’s wood fired powered though, so first they have to go chop some firewood. Jojo nearly loses a foot trying to get in to the hot tub because they put too much wood on the fire and its too hot.

Back at the house another group date card arrives. Derek, James, T, Daniel, Chase, Wells, Vinnie, Evan, James F, Grant, Jordan, and Robbie. They realize that Chad and Alex are the only ones that weren’t on the date card, and that means that they are going on a 2-on-1 date later.

Meanwhile, Jojo and Luke are still on their date. They had to a restaurant for a romantic dinner together. While they are eating, Luke opens up to Jojo about his past. He explains that he was just a small town guy from Texas, and he went off to college in NYC and then he joined the army and went to Afghanistan. Luke confesses that he lost one of his best friends in Afghanistan, and it really changed his outlook on life. Jojo is smitten with Luke after their dinner date, they share a kiss and she gives him a date rose.

Jojo has one last surprise for Luke before their date is over – she takes him to a theater packed full of cheering people, they make their way up on to the stage and slow dance to a live performance by Dan + Shay.

The next day Jojo heads to the football stadium with the guys, NFL pro Ben Rothlesberger is waiting for them, and he brought along some of his teammates. The guys run through some NFL drills, while they are playing, Jojo gives Ben the run down on what guys she likes. Of course, Jordan Rodgers is feeling a bit cocky since he was in the NFL, and he is certain that he has this group date in the bag. The date gets pretty aggressive, and James Taylor winds up getting knocked upside the head, there is blood gushing down the side of his face. The medic wants James to leave and go get stitches, but he refuses. He doesn’t want to miss out on time with Jojo. He gets suited up with the other guys, and they prepare to scrimmage, the winner will get more time with Jojo.

They split the guys in to two teams, in order to keep it fair, they make Jordan Rodgers the quarterback for both teams. Wells scores the first touchdown, the white team is already up 14-0. In an interesting twist, Evan actually scores. The teams wind up tied with only one minute left. Derek scores the winning touchdown, and the blue team winds up winning and getting to spend more time with Jojo. At the end of the night, Jojo gives the group date rose to Jordan.

Back at the house, the final date card arrives. It’s confirmed – Alex and Chad are going on the 2-on-1 date, and one of them will be eliminated. Chad and Alex wind up getting in to an argument, Chad calls Alex a “little bitch” and wants him to step outside and settle it and fight, Alex refuses and Chad stomps off. The tension is at an all time high.

Alex and Chad are getting ready for their ominous date. Chad winds up bickering with Jordan before he leaves, he threatens Jordan and tells him that after the show is over – he is going to come find him and figure out where he lives. Everyone sits there in awkward silence waiting for Chad and Alex’s ride to arrive. Chad and Alex board a helicopter and travel to the middle of nowhere where Jojo is waiting for them.

Alex, Chad, and Jojo head out on a hike together in the middle of the woods. They stop at a stream and sit down on rock and chat. Jojo awkwardly sits between the two guys. Finally, she and Alex go for a walk so they can talk in private. Jojo asks Alex about Chad – Alex says that Chad is fake, she doesn’t know the real him. Alex tells Jojo about Chad threatening to find Jordan after the show. She’s shocked by all of the stuff that Alex is telling her.

Jojo takes Chad aside next so that they can talk. Jojo confronts Chad about what Alex told her, she wants to know if he really threatened Jordan and said he was going to find him after the show. Jojo is obviously upset, Chad argues that the guys have been intentionally provoking him. Jojo storms off and says that she needs time to think…alone.

While Jojo heads in to the woods to cry and decide which guy she is going to send home, Chad is fuming. He told Alex over and over to stop talking badly about him to Jojo, and as soon as Alex and Jojo were alone, he started throwing Chad under the bus again. Chad confronts Alex back by the creek. Chad tells Alex that it is “unfortunate that he can’t hurt him without getting in trouble.”

Jojo finally returns to the creek, she’s ready to give one of them a rose and send home Chad or Alex. Jojo says that Chad’s violent streak is not acceptable, she gives Alex the rose, and sends Chad home…finally. Jojo doesn’t even say goodbye to Chad, she gets up and leaves with Alex. They leave Chad down at the creek wandering in circles ranting about Alex, he announces that he is “going to find Alex.”
