Are we ready for The Bachelor Nick Episode 9. Well it is only an hour tonight, so not sure how much drama they will give us. We shall see.
We continue after the last To Be Continued which is the theme of this season. We get back to Andi showing up at Nick’s hotel. They decide to sip on whisky in lieu of wine. Andi acts like they are BFF’s and hang out and chat – do they chat?
He makes sure to say, the last time you showed up at my hotel room, you broke up with me. He does say he isn’t going to get engaged just because he is the Bachelor, and he may be letting all 30 women go! Andi mentions that he hasn’t been alone with any of them, and asks if he will have sex with them. He says he isn’t sure. She basically tells him he should if he sees it working, but not if he doesn’t. They seem to clear the air with each other and apologize (sort of) what what they did to each other. I never watched Andi’s season…so who knows. Maybe Katilyn will come?
Meanwhile the ladies are showing up for the rose ceremony. Vanessa is nervous, Rachel is nervous (hey you are the Bachelorette! forget it), Raven is nervous, and Corinne is nervous. They all seem very deep in thought.
Nick tells us that he feels like he is on an all time high in his relationships with these 4 women. He says he has never felt more confident after his chat with Andi – yeah cause didn’t this NOT work for her?? Whatever.
The girls are all bundled up for another cold rose ceremony. Nick thanks them for their family dates. Raven, Rachel, and Vanessa get roses.
Corinne immediately starts crying. Nick walks Corinne out. She stops him to hug, she apologizes and says she is sorry if she did anything to upset him. He says, no she didn’t do anything wrong and has nothing to second guess.
He says he is going to miss the hell out of her.
She continues crying in the limo, Bless her heart. She says she just wants to feel loved and wants a normal relationship. She says she is done, worshipping and adoring men, and she now wants that. Yeah cause that is the key to a good relationship WORSHIPPING each other.
Then we get this:
Flying to Finland on Finnair is up next. I WANNA GO!!!
He checks into his hotel.
Then he goes hiking and thinking. He tells us Vanessa’s hometown showed him that he still has a lot of questions, Rachel is the only woman who hasn’t expressed any verbal form of love, and Raven and their connection is very strong. Raven is chosen for the first date!
He welcomes Raven and they fly off for their date.
She tells us that she has never told anyone I love you before. She knows she has to make today count, and she is nervous. They go to a Finnish pub and play darts. They are joined by some Finnish men for a game.
They talk about their hometown date, and her dad’s news. Raven asks about how the talk with her parents went. They discuss what each will bring to the table, he can cook and she will fold laundry and he will iron (she says no – we need to STEAM!). They are too cute together. I am sure Rachel will be great as a Bachelorette but I was pulling for Raven, if of course she didn’t win Nick’s heart. They discuss their nerves, she seems very nervous about the Fantasy Suite.
She tells us, she is nervous about saying I love You but also having sex with him! She mentions that she has only had sex with one person, and even more importantly, she has never had an orgasm. She continues to tell us, that trust needs to be in place to have that release, yes, yes it does. She says tonight’s the night!
Now onto the evening.
What is he wearing?? OMG. I am itchy just looking at it.
They do some heavy flirting and discuss the dart playing. She tells him, coming into this show, she was the biggest skeptic. She tells Nick that she has never said I love you to anyone. They dated for 10 years, but she was afraid it wasn’t reciprocated (except when her ex was drunk). She says, she never felt for her ex how she feels for Nick. They beat around the bush a bit, he digging for her to say it, and her avoiding saying it. She tells him, that on their one on one she felt things, that she didn’t think she could feel. She said it kept growing every time they were together. She gets emotional telling him all of this. She tells him that her Dad prayed for her to have an easy love. She uses the term easy in so many ways, she clearly is saying, this is an easy love. She finally says it. It was so cute. She is adorable. I like her. I hope she wins, or we see more of her in this franchise.
She chugs her wine and says THAT took a LOT!
She says, I don’t want you to think, I am just saying it. He says, he can feel what is behind all of the things she said. Nick pull out the Fantasy Suite Card. We all know what it says. She says yes. She says she needs to remind you of 2 things: 1. she has only been with one person. 2. she has never had an orgasm. He was sort of beaming.
They go to this amazing yurt with a glass ceiling to see the Northern Lights. OMG I WANNA GO!!!!
And the show ends. We are told next week is 3 hours. UGH 3 hours is a LONG time. They also preview the Women Tell All. So it must all take place next week – is that the impression you all got?
