I have to say that for the most part, this was a rather boring Bachelorette episode. Ashley had three one on one dates with Constantine, Ben, and Ryan.
Here are some highlights from those dates--
Constantine: Ashley and Constantine took a steam engine to Tai Pei. They write their love wishes on lanterns which then float up and away into the sky. Awww, how sweet, I wonder what they wished for. Overall, I like Constantine but I don't think he is quite ready to commit.
Ben: This date starts out with them riding together on a motorcycle. The surprise is that Ben and Ashley stay out all night much to J.P.'s chagrin.
Ryan: The shocker comes during this date in which Ashley sends Ryan home before the date even ends! She gave him the first impression rose; she said you're the perfect guy Ryan, you're my perfect guy. I just don't think we have that romantic connection. Ryan is understandably shocked and says he is looking for never ending love as he walks off. Ashley wonders if she made the right decision.
The group date consists of Lucas, Ames, J.P., and each of them taking wedding photos with Ashley. Lucas is wearing traditional Taiwanese wedding clothing. He says he definitely wants Ashley to come back to Texas and meet his family.
Ames wore some modern/ retro clothing. I hope that makes sense, it had somewhat of a Bohemian look to it. Ames says he has stopped rationalizing his relationship with Ashley; he thinks it just feels right. Ashley agrees that she has never met anyone like Ames.
J.P., despite being very down this week, lucks out with a traditional black tuxedo. Ashley is allowed to give out one rose on this date and gives it to J.P. saying, I want to meet your family so bad.
At the end of the night, in somewhat of a surprise, Ashley sends Lucas, who she felt was very comforting and protective, packing. :-(
What will happen this week?
