We start with Angela crying because Eric is going on a date with Cassandra. All of the girls are nervous because the guys have the roses this week.
It’s almost time for the Colton and Tia breakup and I am wondering if he is going to come out on national television. I think that is his entire issue. Tia is expecting to be engaged and she is about to be blindsided by a dumping. He tells her that she deserves better than him. He’s leaving paradise. So much awkward crying with no words. Tia leaves paradise as well.
Eric and Cassandra had a great date. They rode horses in a parade and were crowned king and queen of some sort of rodeo. Eric returns and ignores Angela for a bit and finally talks to her. He says he wants to explore a relationship with Cassandra. Angela goes to talk Cassandra about what Eric said to her. This gave Cassandra second thoughts about Eric. So she goes to talk to Eric. She says the entire situation is a turnoff for her.
Kevin tells Astrid he is falling in love with her. She says she is falling for him too.
Shushanna and Cristen both arrive with date cards. You may know Cristen by her nickname, scallop fingers. Shushanna takes Camille (away from Annaliese) on the double date and Scallops takes John. Camille seems into Shushanna and Annaliese is wandering the beach sobbing back at the hotel.
Then Jarrod and Ashley I show up. I would be so pissed if I were out on a date when all of this happened! I still don’t understand how Jarrod ended up head over heels for Ashley I after rebuffing her for so long, but I am so happy that Ashley I has a happy ending! Kevin being there is kind of awkward. These two also get to pick the date card. But first, Jarrod surprises Ashley with a proposal on the beach where it all began! And BIP paid for the Neil Lane ring!
The only person not super happy about the engagement is Kevin. Apparently, Ashley was still with him when she and Jarrod became more than friends. Astrid is worried about Kevin’s reaction. It was sort of a crappy thing to do to an ex. So they give Kevin and Astrid the date card. Astrid and Kevin exchange “I love yous.” The a mariachi band pops out of the bushes to serenade them in the pool.
Meanwhile, Annaleise is preparing to get dumped. Again.
