DENMARK
The clan makes its way to Denmark. As a contestant you're told to make toasts all the time, so in classic B-roll form, Rachel's men are told to do just that. More than once, evidently, based on the changing levels of beer in those glasses...

ERIC'S 1-ON-1
I am the first to admit that I underestimated Eric in terms of his connection with Rachel. In the beginning I just saw a guy who seemed like a bit of a class clown (not in a bad way) and who defaulted to dancing with Rachel in serious situations. But it turns out that class clown really, truly makes Rachel laugh, which I think all women can agree is pretty close to the top of the priority list. Theirs was a very cute and fun 1-on-1, and in light of her later date with Will, I loved how effusive and affectionate Eric was with Rachel, especially despite having so little experience with relationships.
I also dug how frankly Eric said the following. He straight-up says it'd be a cop-out to just profess any sort of love for her when he simply isn't sure...

Sure, you could argue his feelings are "on schedule" for this show, but the fact that he doesn't just blurt out what's expected of him is a major plus for me. Eric's proven to be very introspective and sensitive and—based on the Man Chats we've seen him have with the other guys—also a good listener and conversationalist. I've become a big Eric fan.

GROUP DATE
Rachel takes the guys on a Viking-themed Group Date which is downright entertaining and reminded me of the "Highland Games" Group Date (never mind that the date took place in Croatia) from Emily Maynard's season. I particularly enjoyed when Tom, the Viking Fighting Instructor, described the "grease stick" to Rachel and watching her reaction to the challenge's terms...

In the evening it becomes EVEN MORE clear that this race is between Bryan and Peter only. I mean, it seemed like Dean was near the front of the pack for a bit, but when his 1-on-1 time isn't even shown (as it wasn't here), it's hard to say he's anywhere close to Bryan or Peter (both of whose 1-on-1 times are ALWAYS shown). I got a lot of interesting feedback for my mention of Peter not leaning in for his kiss so I thought I'd make a .GIF of the moment...

I confess I did miss that Peter whispered what he did about leaning in, but for me it goes beyond the (lack of) lean in. First of all, there was a pause after his nod that, to me, didn't scream "I'm coming over." Second, the timing is just overall reminiscent of their first kiss on his 1-on-1 in Episode 2, like it was on her to be proactive. Third, I don't love that she even had to SAY, "Can you kiss me?" A moment like that should unfold based on mutual understanding and just being on the same romantic wavelength. I'm not saying it's BAD that she asked that (I certainly tell Andy to kiss me all the time), but rather that this early on, he should've already been halfway to her mouth based on the Nala eyes she was giving him.
It's interesting to me how passionately Peter VERSUS Bryan everyone is. And not even in a good-for-Rachel kind of way, but in a "Peter is perfect, Bryan is slimy", or "Peter is calculated, Bryan is sincere" kind of way. (Can't they both be calculated, or both be sincere??) In light of this, I've got to say that while I see better chemistry and reciprocity between Bryan and Rachel, I still think Peter is great. Do I think it's a tad suspect that his high school yearbook plans included both to "go on The Bachelor" and "become famous one way or another"? Okay, maybe, but one changes and grows a lot between the ages of 17 and 31. And believe it or not, I actually respect his reservedness (I maintain that if the gender roles were reversed we'd love female-Peter for this) and happen to think he's the studliest guy to ever grace this franchise. (I mean, him in that Viking cape was just ridiculous.) But even though I don't think he's physically as proactive with Rachel as I'd like doesn't mean I don't like him!

WILL'S 1-ON-1
Just when I thought no 1-on-1 could get more awkward than Jack's, Will gave him a run for his money. At least with Jack it was obviously funny how awkward it was. With Will it was a less placeable discomfort. The following moment had me cringing...

As an aside, I always wonder how the local-elderly-couple-married-for-35-plus-years gets chosen to crash a 1-on-1. Do they put out a casting notice? Do they just pick them up in the cafe?

And with the following moment, I actually would've assumed they were told this was a B-roll and to be quiet (which as far as I know never happens with a pair on dates) if it weren't for Rachel's visible discomfort...

The thing is, I don't necessarily think Will wasn't attracted to Rachel or that he's not handsome or intelligent. It's that he didn't come off either attentive or affectionate enough (or at all—and it is supposed to be a date), and on the whole almost seemed almost standoffish. In case you missed it, I discussed Will more over in my Flare recap.

ROSE CEREMONY
Not much happened in this Rose Ceremony except OMG I DID NOT EXPECT ALEX TO GO HOME BEFORE MATT OR ADAM. It was basically the same shock as the Oslo Rose Ceremony, but heightened. I will miss Alex and his funky style but something tells me he'll do just fine with the single ladies of this franchise. Other than that shocker, the only other notable thing here was the rare shot of camera folks on Rachel's tail...*

Rachel Lindsay's Bachelorette Blog: This Is the Week I Really Fell in Love
BY RACHEL LINDSAY

Welcome back Bachelor Nation. This is the week I really fell in love — with Geneva that is!

This city is one of the most darling destinations in the world I’ve ever had the pleasure of exploring. It also happens to be the setting for one of the most emotional weeks in this entire experience. I can’t tell you how difficult it was to choose which of these amazing men I would ask to take me to their hometowns, but I’ll try to explain it all right now.

One sentiment Chris Harrison shared with me from very beginning is that there are no rules on this journey. Knowing this week was the last opportunity to test each of my remaining relationships before heading into the unknown waters of hometowns, I chose to forego a rose ceremony at the end of the week and give one rose on each of the four dates I had planned. If I waited I knew I would get in my head and I would start applying that lawyer logic to judgments that are best made with my heart. In my heart I knew the greater the risk, the greater the reward, but I totally underestimated the emotional toll it would take on me.

That being said, the decision to make that change didn’t make the week any easier. Pulling Bryan for the first date of the week, his second one-on-one date with me, was the right choice for our relationship at the time.

I knew that. But doing it in front of both Adam and Matt, who had not had a one-on-one date yet, was more difficult than I had expected.

In a perfect world I would have enough roses and time to take every guy on multiple one-on-one dates until all my decisions could be made with complete confidence. But that’s not the reality of this journey. At times I had to be selfish and focus on the relationships that held the most potential. Some dates just lend themselves better to certain men. Some more passionate connections needed extra focus to make sure the feelings were genuine before hometowns. Other relationships that weren’t quite as far along could still get there with the right conversations on a group date. I prayed the men understood that my intentions and decisions were not completely selfish because every single one was made with the ultimate goal of making one of these men the happiest and most loved husband they ever dreamed they could be.
Kicking things off, the date with Bryan was all about embracing the luxurious lifestyle Geneva offers. It is one of the most glamorous cities in all of Europe.

Rolling up to the Breitling store in a Bentley and perusing the gold- and diamond-encrusted watches could have gone straight to my head as fast as the champagne we sipped on as we shopped. Yet, when I chose the two watches for us to keep, it wasn’t about the bling.

It was about owning a token that represented a time when we were both falling for each other that could be held on to for decades. Even to pass down to our children if the relationship kept going in the right direction.
(по свиданию было заметно, что Браян был для нее дороже всех, но я не ожидала, что она об этом напишет )

Sitting down to dinner that night, I wanted to dig into Bryan’s past relationships. Our time together had been so effortless and smooth that I wanted to know more about how he handled difficult times in his love life. He had touched on his last serious relationship ending because his ex-girlfriend had a tumultuous introduction to his family. Seeing how we had only touched on that issue and it was never resolved, that was something I needed to know more about before I could decide if I was ready to go home with him to Miami.

But just as he had quelled all my fears of his charm being insincere weeks ago, his honesty about past commitment issues and how he’s moved past them eased my anxiety again. The night ended with him dancing his way into a hometown with me in his arms.

After such a glamorous date with Bryan, I wanted to experience a different side of Geneva with Dean.

Church is very important in my life, but I’d never been to a Catholic mass. I figured attending a service together would be a unique way to experience Sunday as Genevans do. This Catholic mass sure was different from my services at home, but it felt really great to have a day to reflect and pray.

After mass, Dean and I met with the congregation for coffee and breakfast pastries next door. We met the locals and asked them all about Geneva. One man in particular was very taken with us. He wouldn’t stop talking, but about … what? I couldn’t tell you! He kept going and going — in FRENCH! Dean and I didn’t have the heart to stop him so we just smiled and nodded. Eventually we said our goodbyes and continued on to explore the rest of Geneva.
Dean was cute and fun during our morning at mass and afternoon exploring Geneva’s old town, but I already knew that side of him. We needed to take our conversation to a more profound place to see if this relationship could have depth. But Dean didn’t seem ready to go there yet. Something was holding him back and he kept steering the conversation back to dinosaurs and tooth fairies.

Going into the dinner portion I was skeptical I would be handing out a rose that night. He had one chance to change my mind.
Then once again Dean completely shocked me with his candidness and courage. As he shared the extent of which the loss of his mother as teenager led to him feeling abandoned by his remaining family. I began to understand why he fled serious topics earlier.

I hadn’t realized how hard it must have been to be in the hotel suite with all the other guys who were so excited about potentially having me meet their families when Dean was so afraid to introduce me to his. The fact that he delved into details regarding his difficult past, details he told me he had never shared with even his closest friends, made me realize just how much of his heart he was putting on the line for me.
I knew giving him a rose meant going to a hometown that wasn’t going to be stress-free. I knew it might get very painful for him, yet I didn’t hesitate. I wanted to be there for him. I wanted to support him. That’s how I knew I was falling for him. When Dean opens up he is truly one of the most beautiful people you will ever meet.

My last one-on-one was with Peter.

Our relationship at that point had been exceptional in that while it always felt as strong as any other, Peter is very cautious with the words that have to do with love. He will make you feel love in so many different little ways, like gifts or how he is also completely focused on me in every moment we share no matter how crazy things all around us may be.

I admit I struggle with the word love, too, and like the little gap in our smiles it’s actually endearing that we share that. I left my struggle, however, back on Nick’s season. I promised myself that I would be open to love and completely put myself and my heart out there because that is the only way this was going to work for me. Remember … the greater the risk, the greater the reward. So the question is becoming, Is Peter willing to let himself go and take the same risks with me?

I took Peter in the helicopter to Glacier 3000 because he is so down-to-earth that even the most extreme dates don’t distract him from focusing on the relationship.
