The two hike up a Monk's Trail to get relationship advice, and the editing department used a clip of Becca scratching her upper lip twice...

... LITERALLY within in a matter of seconds...

As I often stress, things like the above don't make a huge difference in this particular situation. Obviously they had a clear shot of Becca turning to the translator monk and they (rather sloppily) threw it in there. But what it highlights is 1) how dangerously easily any clip can be tossed into any slot as needed, and 2) there was somehow a NEED to use this same clip. I imagine other shots involved cameras behind Becca...?

In the evening, in the midst of what (to me, anyway) feels like an oppressive episode about feelings and doubt, we get a glimpse of Becca's sense of humor, and it struck me as so rare and precious that I made a .GIF of it...

... Also so I could say: THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

I should probably touch on this relationship but I honestly can hardly bear to. What is there to say that I haven't word-vomited over at Flare? In a nutshell: It's like there are #allthefeels, #allthetime between these two but we get nothing to really quantify what they share beyond what must be general mutual understanding and chemistry. We're certainly not getting much from EITHER Blake or Becca to describe the relationship, whereas with her relationship with Garrett, Becca is actually far more specific and clear about what she sees in and with him.

I touched on this at Flare, but he more I think about it, the more I really don't see much of a difference between Becca and Blake's relationship and Jojo and Robby's relationship. Remember, Robby's selling point was his effusiveness (he said the L-word on his first 1-on-1, putting even Blake to shame), his dedication to Jojo, his general "safe"-choice vibes. With Blake, his biggest selling point seems to be the fact he's "the type of person who looks for a reason to stay and not a reason to go", which sounds hella familiar.

Of course, I don't think that's ALL these two share and I realize there's so much we don't see and that we can't understand unless we were there. It's just that we aren't being given anything more.

JASON'S "OVERNIGHT"

Mini skirt or no, we should've known Jason was doomed when he was greeted with this lackluster feet-on-the-ground embrace...

There was a funny little Direct-Look-Into-Camera™ as Jason was delighted with his own joke...

I think we all knew it was unlikely Jason would end up the final guy standing here, so what was easily most compelling thing about this date was not the fact that Becca sent him home (early or otherwise), but rather the 4th wall-breaking deliberations that took place leading up to it.

What I found interesting about the following moment is something I missed on first watch: her producer suggests they sit in the shade. On first watch, I thought Becca frustratedly just began to walk away. This subtly changes to the situation as more tactical on the producer's part in my mind, as Becca was clearly clamming up with a camera in her face yet had less of an issue in what felt more like a natural conversation....

I don't mean to remotely make it sound like her producer is some schemer. Becca wasn't opening up, so her producer suggested they sit in the shade and, through the course of a more natural conversation, got her to open up (at least marginally more). For the most part, especially with the leads, it's a misconception to assume producers and production are evil manipulators. (It says something that, since her season, Becca and Caitlin have gone to Disneyland together.)

It's also worth noting that the whole scene ended up being pretty flattering for Becca—it showed her looking very tormented, saying things like, "I don't know if I can picture [our future]" and "I'm having the best time with him", all things suggesting that she hadn't known all along that Jason wouldn't end up the last guy standing.

In the evening, my favorite moment is after Becca's done the deed and she's escorted him to his car. You can see Jason replaying his entire "journey" in about 5 realtime seconds, and (rightfully) assessing it as "brutal"...

And in his car ride, he makes another trout pout (not with his hand this time, though)...

... making me wish he'd been more prominent earlier in the season so that we could've had a season-long #TroutPoutWatch. Missed opportunities.

versus a Pick-up, in a room we first saw last week...

GARRETT'S OVERNIGHT

Solidifying his position in the Final Two...

In all seriousness, this was a cute date, made cuter by the fact that it was a national holiday and the river on which they rafted was teeming with locals. I liked how it really seemed to involve and include the actual PEOPLE of Thailand and in general was a million times more interactive than the usual helicopter ride/catamaran/private island fare...

The above is easily my dream date activity of the season so far.

Again, I don't have a ton to add here that I didn't already express at Flare. It's clear Garrett's not as effusive as Blake, but in general their relationships feel similar, save for the fact that Becca is so clear in what she sees in and with Garrett. Remember, she struggled even obtusely referencing a future home with Jason, but with Garrett, she says she can see him as a great future husband and father. She calls him her "heart's equal" and that she could "rely on him no matter what." (Btw, one of my own must-haves when looking for my own life partner was Reliability [with a capital R], so I really appreciate this one.) We haven't really heard her say things like this about Blake.

I have a strong suspicion, given the two Pick-ups this week but the fact that we don't have a TON of footage of the above room, that it's from her hotel in the Maldives. We'll see if I'm right about that!

JASON'S RETURN

I vented about this at Flare already. This is not a personal issue with Jason as I actually REALLY like him. My issue is with the segment itself: the previews leading up to it, the music, the editing, the build-up, the boring non-climax. We've seen it before, it felt redundant, unnecessary, and done. Nothing more to say.

ROSE CEREMONY

Can you guys imagine how fabulously shocking it would be if at this point, especially in one of these for-show Rose Ceremonies (where the contestant knows they're getting a rose), he or she actually turned it down?? HOW EPIC WOULD THAT BE? Especially if it left the other person the last one standing by default.

The best thing about this Rose Ceremony was when Becca had just given Blake his rose and embraced him, and then upon his return to his "place", everyone just awkwardly walked back towards each other to re-embrace and, um, celebrate? Becca's own near-laughter at this (notice her smirk) was example #1,804,352 of how gloriously relatable she is...

There was a hint of tension in this otherwise smooth-sailing moment when Garrett made a toast, suggesting Becca gave him "extra alone time"...

Despite the fact that it's more interesting to perceive Garrett's toast as a pointed dig toward Blake, I'm sorry to say it's unlikely. I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but there are multiple takes of the toasts, with multiple people making them. It's more likely that everyone had to give a toast, possibly more than one, and then the above tiny snippet—the one that could be perceived as jealousy-inciting—is the one that made the cut.

So many 4th wall breakings!

1. Blake reference having been there for WAY longer than was shown.
2. We see that the two guys are obviously buds.

And more...

3. The chat with the producer who gives Blake permission to pee. Note how Blake goes from serious and facing forward to looking in the producer's direction with a funny "Oooh, can I?" face. Night and day.
4. The shots of Blake being stressed and serious about his full bladder, taken out of context, are identical to the stressed and serious Rose Ceremony faces we see week after week. In other words, stress and seriousness and general frustration over ANYTHING can (and will) be used in the context of fear over not getting a rose.

Finally, we have finally solved the mystery of the gold-plate-on-a-stand-and-red-flowers-in-white-vases ITM room, which (as with the white-bamboo-in-enormous-white-vase room) you may remember all the way back from Night One...
