Today’s a day, rose lovers! It’s finally time for Andi to confirm that 4 families will accept a pleasure of her company—for one visit, during least.
Dude, we’re in Brussels. The airfield contingency have been carrying a special on flouncy man-scarves, since now Nick and Chris and Marcus are sporting them. Something about those indeterminate accessories works for Andi, though, since Marcus gets a initial one-on-one date. (Thankfully he ditches a headband before streamer out with his lady.)
The thesis of Marcus’ date is can he hang around, or does a fact that he told Andi a while ago that he was meditative of withdrawal meant he’s going to shaft a initial time things get tough in their “relationship”? The subject comes adult immediately, as Marcus reveals that he’s been essay in his biography all about his difficult feelings for her. (Side note: Journal is not a verb, Andi. Marcus has been writing in his journal, not journaling.) The whole “should we stay or should we go?” thing, Marcus continues, was about his fear of removing hurt, or something. But now: “I’m in adore with you, so it’s full stifle from here.” Dude, maybe play a little tough to get.
Then again, Marcus does have abandonment issues, as he reveals to Andi over dinner. His father separate years ago with no explanation, so we can’t unequivocally censure a guy. And that’s a slightest unfortunate thing we learn about Marcus’ family: “[My grandparents] wanted a best for my mom, honestly, and they kick it into her—literally. So that’s kind of how my mom did it to us.” Oh Lord, Marcus, that’s awful—but we gotta say, it’s a unsure approach to sell Andi on a hometown date. The Bachelorette, though, finds his resilience and probity forever appealing. “There is no rose on today’s date, though we am vehement and prepared to accommodate his family.”
Back during a hotel, a date label arrives and most to everyone’s chagrin, Josh gets a subsequent one-on-one. But Nick decides if a towering won’t come to Mohammed, Mohammed is going to petiole a mountain. He slips out of a hotel room and heads to a lobby, where he deduction to tell a table clerk a pathetically groundless lie: He mislaid his room pivotal and has lost all else about his life solely his wife’s name, Andi Dorfman. The clerk patiently puts adult with this sham and reveals a Bachelorette’s room number—either since confidence is intensely messy in Brussels or since a producers slipped her €20 and asked her to only go with it.
Knock hit knock! There’s a burro in a leather coupler during a door! Andi is understandably flummoxed by Nick’s sudden, illegal appearance. “Is all okay?” she asks, no doubt endangered that he was about to lift a Sharleen. But no, Nick only wanted a small additional time with Andi, and she LOVES it. They take a brief travel in a dark, still city, and make out opposite a tree.
The subsequent day, Andi greets Josh in Ghent, and she’s wearing a same parsimonious white pants she sported on Marcus’ date. (I like a lady who packs light.) The Bachelorette’s idea for a day is simple: get Josh to “open up” about his “feelings.” What Andi doesn’t know is that Team Bachelorette has personally transposed Josh’s feelings with this. Will she notice? Let’s listen in and find out…
