Even with two very funny dates already under Episode 2's belt, this one holds its own on the entertainment scale. I especially loved all the slow-mos of Leo impressively dodging (this made me really believe that he is indeed a legit stuntman!) and getting nailed on the rear while horizontal in the air...

In the evening, though this is what an ITM of the evening looks like...

... much of the commentary comes from the following Pick-up, which might look familiar...

Colton rightfully uses his 1-on-1 time to be up front about the fact that he previously dated Tia (from Arie's season). I do think this was a good move considering it would be much shadier coming out any later in the season, particularly if they'd built up more of a bond by then. I also have to correct what I said over at Flare, when I questioned when he and Tia dated; when I rewatched it I noticed he did say that they dated in January. So that puts it very early in Arie's season, certainly before Tia might've known she was in the running for Bachelorette (if she didn't already assume it was a possibility just by having made it to Final 4), but not before Colton was in talks for the season. Casting weekend for a Bachelorette season is late January, and remember that's the final round, so it's after you've submitted all your materials and have generally jumped through a few hoops. In short, it's HIGHLY unlikely Colton didn't already know he'd at least have a shot at appearing on this season when he was with Tia.

All of this is moot, though. My main issue here is with the reason he gives for pursuing Becca and it not working out with Tia. He says the timing wasn't right for him, but that was only about 3 months prior. He then alludes to not having had enough time with Tia, but that there'd be enough with Becca, as though the only difference between these two women is the amount of time available to spend with and pursue each of them. (I realize this isn't what he meant but this is what his argument basically states. Maybe he was just nervous?) And believe me, if what you're seeking is TIME with the object of your affection, the filming process of this show is the wrong place to find it...

I get wanting to be polite and PC (especially on national television and about the friend of the woman you're pursuing) but there really needs to be more of a line drawn, of a differentiator between Tia and Becca. Honestly, I might've bought what he was selling if he'd just said, "Tia's a nice girl but she just wasn't for me; you seem more my speed", instead of vague niceties about having had fun with Tia but it coming down to "timing" and "time" in general. Don't get me wrong: I think timing IS everything when it comes to relationships, but while there were so many words uttered about it, and after rewatching this a few times, I STILL have no idea what he's talking about. I've said before that no one, especially not in this Instagram day and age, goes on this show solely looking for love, so it's not like Colton needs to be professing his undying love for Becca. But I do think if you'e got a somewhat sketch story to talk your way out of, at least make that explanation airtight. Perhaps some of this was left on the editing room floor? Considering Becca has proven to be plenty shrewd and ends up keeping him at the Rose Ceremony, I have to assume that's the case.

ROSE CEREMONY

Leading into the Rose Ceremony Cocktail Party, Becca is once again ultra-relatable in her 4th-wall-breaking admission that she thought she wouldn't cry until a certain point in the process...

Heading into his 1-on-1 time with Becca, Clay talks about wanting to show her that he can be fun and easygoing...

... but his tie/pocket square combo is different than what he's actually wearing here, suggesting the above ITM is taken from another Cocktail Party...

Not a big deal but one of many (many!) examples of text being taken from elsewhere and used wherever suits. It's possible Clay made an 11th hour decision to rip off his tie and add a pocket square before Becca arrived but that's far less likely.

Easily the best part about this Rose Ceremony was One Man Show Jordan...

Andy still thinks Jordan's in on it, I still think he's either not, or only partially so.

“High Hopes for Blake:” Sharleen Joynt on Episode 2 of The Bachelorette!

I knew I would like Becca as Bachelorette but she’s exceeding even my (sometimes unrealistic) expectations. At every possible turn, instead of sliding on that glass slipper with a bit too much ease, she instead reminds us that she’s just like us; she’s joked about usually living in yoga pants and repeatedly emphasized what a normal girl she is.

When the guys were changing into their tuxes on that first Group Date, she laughed uncomfortably, as much at herself as at the situation: “Like, I don’t know what to do right now!” (I really related to this as that’s how I’d feel in that situation.)

While remaining optimistic and a downright incredible sport about the process (particularly considering what was done to her last season), she straight-up called it out as being “reverse dating” and said that it led her to feel an attachment to Arie that she wouldn’t feel so early in real life. She said she didn’t think she would cry “till Week 5,” indicating she knew full well that tears were on the horizon, and also that she was wrong to think it was something she could predict. She is fully herself and is aware she isn’t the first, and won’t be the last, to be in these temporary glass slippers.

It’s these constant little fourth wall-breakers and that self-awareness that remind us, like the page of an Us Weekly issue: “Stars, They’re Just Like Us!” Becca represents that to me. She’s the Everygirl, the woman you’re friends with, the one you especially root for.

As far as Episode 2s go, this one didn’t let me down. Both Group Dates were the right mix of competition and kitsch, which is, in my opinion, how they should be this early on.

Blake’s 1-on-1 struck the perfect balance between humour—smashing things with abandon in a massive warehouse sounds SO satisfying (whether or not they pertain to your ex, honestly)—and romance.

What did let me down? A couple of the guys. Namely, Lincoln and Connor. Believe it or not, I err slightly on Connor’s side in the whole framed photo debacle (I’m at about 40 Lincoln, 60 Connor).

Don’t get me wrong: think it’s a red flag that Connor not only possesses such a rage mode, but further that he allowed himself to go to said rage mode over something so indisputably trivial. (Seriously, who gives a crap if Lincoln’s photo is facing out for the guys to see?)

But I saw Lincoln’s behaviour as even worse.

It’s one thing to place the photo in a reasonable spot—on a table, any table—and entirely another to become next-level obnoxious about it when others express irritation. His bizarre peacocking of that damn photo felt almost like the result of some social ineptitude rather than actual pride over what it represented. And it’s not like the photo sat on the table for just a few minutes and Connor suddenly threw it out the window. Several attempts were made to make the photo face downward, or to ask Lincoln directly to move it, and he continued to provoke the others until Connor snapped. It came to the point where it was less about the photo and more about one-upping each other.

Lincoln seems to be competitive to the nth degree: The ITM of his “WIN WIN WIN” mantra (this was likely frankenbitten somewhat but I think the gist remains the same), plus the fact that he just couldn’t help rubbing it in the others’ faces. But let’s reverse the roles: given how competitive Lincoln clearly is, if someone else had won and rubbed it in his face, I don’t doubt he would’ve been deeply irritated, too.

Look, all this aside, if when Lincoln ran to Becca for a new framed photo, he had taken even the slightest bit of responsibility and admitted that, hey, maybe he had been a bit obnoxious and kinda/sorta asked for it, I’d be #TeamLincoln. But his post-photo-throwing behaviour was that of a petulant, whiny child who couldn’t fathom how he had caused what ended up transpiring.

And the crying was downright strange.

Overall, they both behaved like children.

Connor should’ve just been the bigger person and shrugged off Lincoln’s juvenile display (like every other guy there was able to do!), and Lincoln should have been more conscious of the others and just let Connor (or whomever) make the photo face downward and left it at that. Neither of them were capable of proving to be the bigger person in that scenario. As Becca said, it’s very early (too early) on for there to be this sort of drama. Here’s hoping these boys grow up.

On a lighter note, Jordan is turning out to be even more hilarious than I could have hoped.

His one-liners remind me of those of Canuck Daniel Maguire’s; you’re not quite sure if he intends to be as funny as he is, but it doesn’t really matter. I think my favorite quote of his from last night is: “If we could take an IQ test, and I’m certain I would pass it a little higher than you’d think a male model would.” I’m still not entirely sure where he stands on the ingenuinity scale, but for now his entertainment factor is so on point that I don’t really care.
