Episode 10
I'm sorry for the increasing delays doing these! I've found that being out of town for an opera was actually better, not worse, for my recaps' punctuality because my love and social lives ranged from pathetic to nonexistent. Now that I'm back home, it's been tough to find that groove again. Plus, this week in particular I got majorly bogged down by the fashion section. 🙄 *Thank you for your understanding!*
In case you still haven't had enough Bachelor, I was this week's guest on HuffPost's Here To Make Friends podcast with Claire Fallon and Emma Gray.*Also, as a head's up, I'll be next week's guest on the one and only Reality Steve's podcast.

RAVEN'S... SATISFACTION?
Not much to say here. A commenter over at Flare, deebee, made the great point that Raven "traipsing" (SUCH a good word) through Finland after her Fantasy Suite reminded her more of Paradise than The Bachelor. I'm inclined to agree.
I thought about making a .GIF of Raven's Direct-Look-Into-Camera™ during her I-supposedly-just-had-my-first-orgasm montage but the kitsch of the whole thing negates the entire point of my Direct-Looks-Into-Camera™. I personally question a) (though it's not any of my business, but just based on the hype of this very weak storyline) whether or not Raven actually had an orgasm, and b) whether she knew how exploited that storyline would become, to the point where I wonder if during filming she thought she was just doing cutesy post-Fantasy Suite B-rolls and not an I-supposedly-just-had-my-first-orgasm montage. NEXT.

RACHEL'S 1-ON-1
Thankfully, the episode picks up from there. Rachel is suitably enamored with Lapland and goes so far as to describe it as Narnia...

... which made me like Rachel even more than I already did.*I TOTALLY make The Chronicles of Narnia references all the time and am apparently not alone!

Anyway, Rachel meets Nick for their cross-country skiing date, and their bewilderment at cross-country skis makes me feel very, very Canadian.*
In a chalet festooned with numerous reindeer parts, there's a very weird bit of editing as Nick is shown to feel up Rachel's leg OUT OF NOWHERE and it mostly comes off a bit creepy...*

... and the two make their way from their daytime chalet to their nighttime chalet, on a sleigh covered in reindeer pelts yet pulled by a still-living reindeer...

As Claire put it on the Here to Make Friends podcast, "Those reindeer are here to serve us in every way!"

It honestly amazes me how many people still don't take to Nick. I've heard that people think he seems insincere and disinterested, and I can see how one could jump to that conclusion because, as I've said before, Nick does have a tendency to come off guarded and borderline stoic. But truthfully I see those very traits as evidence of just how NOT performer-y he is and if anything, it makes him more sincere in my eyes. (I admittedly have an instant-suspicion for anyone who seems too "on", as on-ness in this franchise can very often mean fake, and fake can very often mean calculated. #WRONGREASONS)*Nick is and was never not fully engaged with his final 6 or so women—yes, he probably wasn't 100% focused on all of this season's women, but how many Bachelors are?—and has seemed pretty authentically emotional about sending each one home.*
I realize I probably sound like a biased friend here, but that can't be helped, because obviously I am friends with this person for a reason. I have plenty criticized Nick's season, the show itself, and even his actions at times (eg. letting the producers bring bringing*Corinne to Final 4, and again, my issue isn't with her being the villain but with them having had less believable chemistry and 1-on-1 time than both Danielle M and Kristina). I also acknowledge that Nick has gained plenty from his "fame" on this franchise, from massive showbiz opportunities, to a cushy 6-figure living potential in the form of a million-plus Instagram followers, to his upcoming Dancing With The Stars spot. But, and this is totally my bias showing, I just really do know that Nick is sincere about this. If anything, painfully so. Like, WAY more sincere than most folks. And obviously I can't convince people of something about someone they've never met, but that's just how I see it.*

Oh and I also think his sense of humor is underrated. His thirst-quenched "Ahhhh" after the long, long post-toast silence? I laughed out loud...

So many of his dry jokes poke fun at the show itself, and yes, I'm including his "I may be white but I'm still a minority" line. (If you hated this line, Claire and Emma agree with you.) After a Hometown overly*focused on them being interracial, I for one appreciated it being addressed lightheartedly.

VANESSA'S 1-ON-1
On Vanessa's 1-on-1, Nick once again uses a Bachelor trope (twisting the activity at hand into a tenuous metaphor for falling in love) in a very knowing way...

He says it so dryly, not even pretending that this wasn't prompted.

We get the adorable-est Direct-Look-Into-Camera from Vanessa™ as she descends into the icy pool...

... and perhaps most notably in this entire episode (and I'll go ahead and include last week's also-hourlong episode), when Nick talks about his and Vanessa's future, he speaks in Future, not in Conditional...

If this isn't telling I don't know what is.

I spoke to a few friends who (in my opinion, strangely) came to not like Vanessa as much this episode. They told me they found her a too argumentative and antagonistic towards Nick but I couldn't disagree more.*I saw her insistence on sharing her core values and proudly sticking to her guns as very strong—perhaps a bit uncharacteristically strong, for this show—traits and they made me like her even more. I LOVE that she responded to Nick's reluctance to say he'd move to Montreal ("I'm proud to be American") with an every-bit-as-valid "And I'm proud to be Canadian."
I don't like that they'll have to solve this major issue while likely having rumors splashed across tabloids, but what I DO like is that it's being discussed. Not only is this a very "real life" issue that many can relate to (believe me, while I love New York, I think about making Canada home again all the time, especially lately), it's showing much more equality between the genders on a show not known for it. It's possible some final couples are examples of the Bachelor moving to where their fiancée is (I can't think of any but am sure you can!), but those are the exception, not the rule, and it's just refreshing to see it DISCUSSED. Even if, in the end, Vanessa does pack up and leave her family, their Sunday tradition, and her job behind, it's about time that on national television it's not assumed that she would.

ROSE CEREMONY
While I was definitely sad to see Rachel sad, I was moreso relieved to see her go. Knowing she's Bachelorette definitely put a damper on my ability to enjoy or even remotely invest in her and Nick's chemistry and instead just had me in a sort of Countdown-to-Rachel's-departure mode. I am super excited to watch her next season, but her time here was definitely over. On to bigger and better things!
