We’re through the Looking Glass, rose lovers. There was a time when Warner Bros., the company that produces The Bachelor and its many extensions, was so eager to shut down spoilers that it sued Steve Carbone (a.k.a. Reality Steve) twice. Nowadays, The Bachelor and ABC simply work those spoilers into the show’s ongoing storylines — as you’ll see in this exclusive clip from Monday’s new episode.

As we’ve seen in the previews, this week Peter takes Victoria F. on a date to a concert by country music artist Chase Rice. The previews also reveal that Victoria F. used to date Chase Rice (which Carbone reported in October) — so the date is, in a word, awkward.

But here’s where things get really interesting: Alayah, who was sent home last week after all the women told Peter that she’s “fake,” returns on Monday’s episode… and apparently one of her first orders of business was to let the other “ladies” know about Victoria F.’s romantic history with the country singer. In the sneak preview above, Victoria F. has a hotel-room confrontation with Alayah over the whole mess.

“So I heard that you were telling people that something had leaked about me and Chase,” she says, asking Alayah why she felt “the need” to tell the other women. When Alayah offers the (admittedly lame) “Oh, I thought everybody knew already” defense, Victoria F.’s eyes go black and It. Is. On. “You’re manipulative!” she barks. “I don’t play this s—!” Watch the clip above, rose lovers, and then join me back here Monday night for a full blow-by-blow of this blow-up.

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC
