'The Bachelorette' episode 8: 'How much faster could it possibly move? I told you I loved you!'
I love it when the guys don’t go quietly, don’t you rose lovers? If you’ve just finished watching tonight’s hometown dates episode — and SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t seen it yet — you know exactly what I’m talking about. It didn’t come as too much of a surprise to me… what about you? I think my favorite of the hometown dates was Jef’s (guns, toddlers, a log cabin — what’s not to like?), though Arie’s mom (a.k.a. Emily in 30 years) was pretty fantastic, too. One thing that piqued my interest tonight as well were the previews for next week… no mention of the fantasy suite! Do you think Emily might be choosing to forgo this most sordid of Bachelorette traditions? Call me a fool, but I’m daring to dream that she does. Stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click over to Kristen’s full Bachelorette recap and Chris Harrison’s exclusive behind the scenes Bachelorette blog), but in the meantime, let me know what you thought of Emily’s hometown adventures. Were you surprised by her final three? One a scale of 1 to 10, how rude was the whole breaking-into-Dutch thing during Arie’s visit? And which do you think is more fun to ride in, a dune buggy or an IndyCar? Post your thoughts now!
