Tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette kicks off where we left off last week – Jojo Fletcher is outside of her rose ceremony and having a meltdown. Luke Pell just told her that he loved her. And, now she is having second thoughts about sending him home. Jojo heads inside to pass out the roses. She gives a rose to Chase McNary, Robby Hayes, and Jordan Rodgers. Luke Pell is officially eliminated. He and Jojo share an emotional goodbye, Luke is upset, he tells her that “this is not supposed to be happening” and he had dreams for them. Jojo sobs as Luke rides off in the limo. Now that Luke is gone, it’s time for The Bachelorette and her final three guys to head to Thailand for the Fantasy Suite dates. Jojo raves about how romantic and magical Thailand is, she’s ready to move on and take her search for a husband to the next level.

Now that Luke is gone, it’s time for The Bachelorette and her final three guys to head to Thailand for the Fantasy Suite dates. Jojo raves about how romantic and magical Thailand is, she’s ready to move on and take her search for a husband to the next level. Jojo thinks that this week will bring her clarity, because right now she is torn between Robby, Chase, and Jordan.
Jojo meets up with Robby first in the middle of a street market. They check out the shops and taste some authentic Thai food. Jojo hasn’t told Robby she loves him, but he says that he can tell that her feelings for him are real. It starts pouring while they are shopping and Jojo and Robby duck under a nearby tent. They decide to get Thai massages while they are waiting for the rain to let up. Robby uses the time to make sure he and Jojo are on the same page, and she isn’t still worried about his drama with his ex.
Later that night, Jojo and Robby head out on a romantic dinner date together. Robby reassures Jojo that he is in love with her, and he isn’t going to hurt her like Ben Higgins did and say that he loves her and then bail on her. Robby gives Jojo a letter from his dad about how in love his son is with her, just in case she has any doubts.
The room card arrives from Chris Harrison, Robby and Jojo don’t even have to think about it – they head to the Fantasy Suite together for their overnight date. Jojo gets emotional because Robby makes her feel like she is finally getting the love story and happily ever after that she has always dreamed of. Robby and Jojo put the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door and head to bed together.
In the morning, Jojo an Robby have a romantic breakfast in bed together before Jojo heads back to her own room. Jojo confesses that there were a few times last time that she wanted to tell Robby that she loved him, but she didn’t want to do to him what Ben Higgins did to her, so she is going to wait until she makes her final decision before she tells anyone that she loves them.
Now, it’s time for Jordan Rodgers’ 1-on-1 date in Thailand with Jojo. They meet up on a beach and rush to great each other. Jojo has planned a hike for her and Jordan, they head up a steep wooded mountain, and when they finally reach the top, there is a beautiful and scenic cave with a temple inside of it. They can’t kiss in the temple, but they sit down on a blanket to enjoy the beauty. While they are talking, they discuss what it will be like when Jordan meets her parents.
Later that night, Jojo and Jordan head out to dinner. Jojo asks Jordan what he thinks the next year of his life will look like. Jojo is concerned because she is afraid that Jordan will be on the road a lot because of his career. Jordan reassures her that he can be wherever she needs him to be. Jordan reassures Jojo that he is in love with her, and he is a better person when he is with her. After dinner, Jordan and Jojo head to the Fantasy Suite to spend the night together.
Chase McNary meets up with Jojo for his date in Thailand. They spend the afternoon on a romantic boat ride together, they stop by a fish market and goof around. Jojo can’t believe how much fun Chase is being, he’s much more playful than usual.
They head back to their rooms to get ready for dinner. While Jojo is getting ready, there’s a knock at her door – it’s Robby Hayes. Jojo sits down with Robby and he tells her that he just stopped by because he misses her and wants her to know that he has been thinking about her. Jojo and Robby share a few kisses, and then she kicks him out so that she can finish getting ready for her date with Chase. After Robby leaves, Jojo admits that she has already fallen in love with him and Jordan.
Chase and Jojo meet up at the restaurant and sit down for their candle lit dinner together. Afterwards, they head to the Fantasy Suite together. Chase and Jojo pour some glasses of wine, and Chase decides that it is finally the time for him to tell her that he loves her. Jojo doesn’t say anything back, she just kisses him and thanks him for telling her. It’s obvious that Jojo isn’t moved by his profession of love. She tells Chase to hold on a minute and rushes out of the room.
Jojo finally goes back into the fantasy suite, she tells Chase that they need to talk. Jojo explains that when he said that he loved her, she realized that she didn’t feel the same way for him. Jojo doesn’t think that they should spend the night together in the Fantasy Suite. Chase is obviously upset…he just told Jojo that he loved her, and she basically threw it in his face. He starts rambling and swearing, and he demands to know what went wrong. Jojo cries that she just doesn’t want to blindside him and be dishonest. Chase scoffs that she did just blindside him.
Chase storms out as Jojo sobs and chases after him. She cries that she doesn’t want him to go home hating her, and she “doesn’t know how to do this.” Jojo says that she never wanted to hurt him, she was just trying to fall in love with him and they ran out of time. Chase says he saw a future together for them, then he hops in the car that is waiting for him and rides off. Chase tells the camera that he feels like Jojo just told him to pull his pants down so that she could “kick him in the nuts.”
It’s time for the next rose ceremony. Jojo is relieved because she already sent Chase home, and doesn’t have to eliminate anyone else. Jordan and Robby line up for the rose ceremony and Jojo explains that she sent him home, and they are officially her final two. While Jojo is talking – Chase appears out of nowhere and says that he needs to talk to her. She walks off with him…and Robby and Jordan are obviously not thrilled by his unexpected arrival.
Chase apologizes to Jojo for the way he behaved the other night. He says that he hasn’t come back to beg for a chance to still be on the show, he respects her decision, Chase just didn’t want their relationship to end on such a bad note – he cares too much about her to leave things the way that they did. Jojo gets emotional and thanks Chase for coming back to say goodbye to her. Jojo cries as Chase walks away, she wishes that she has fallen in love with him.
Jojo heads back to the rose ceremony where Jordan and Robby are still waiting for her. She gives a speech about how real her feelings are for both of them – and says she can’t wait to introduce them to her family. Jojo passes out the last two roses, and Jordan Rodgers and Robby Hayes are officially her final two.
