'The Bachelorette' episode 5: 'I want to go West Virginia hood rat backwoods on his a---!'

Posted on

We can’t really blame poor Emily, can we rose lovers? After all — and spoiler alert if you haven’t seen tonight’s episode — no one wants their precious child contemptuously compared to a piece of luggage. While I enjoyed the showdown between Emily and He Who Shall Not Be Remembered, I do think she has a right to be just as angry with the other guys who heard the offensive comments and chose not to mention them to her. Kudos to Doug — the guy may be humorless, but at least he had the stones to call a family meeting when the Bachelorette Code of Conduct was violated. As for the rest of the episode… well, it really was all about Baggage Gate, wasn’t it? Oh, well there was one other notable development: Ryan is actually winning Emily over. Let me repeat that: The man who told Emily that she can’t gain weight after they get married is actually winning her over. Discuss.
