    In case you skipped last week's cringe-fest, you can catch up in a jiffy here.

    Now, this isn't meant to be a two-hour affair, so let's jump right in, shall we?

    Last week ended with Clare not giving out a rose at the group date because, quelle surprise, she only wanted to give the rose to Dale...who wasn't on the date that week. This is UNPRECEDENTED, so Chris Harrison had to interfere and get the tea:

    After Chris and Clare's chat, Chris goes back and tells the guys that there isn't going to be a cocktail party or a rose ceremony that evening...

    At this rate, I'll be surprised if there's an episode WITH a rose ceremony.

    ...because she wants to spend the night with Dale:

    Because, you know, Clare is "head over heels" for Dale, even though they haven't had a one-on-one date. To each their own!

    Dale and Clare ~enjoy~ a personal concert from Chris and Bri, the winners of Listen to Your Heart:

    I would be HELLA uncomf if I were Chris and Bri.

    After their night together, Clare breaks with the rest of the suitors. Most of them take it pretty well and wish them all the best...

    ...but Blake and Kenny are hella pressed because they felt cheated? I don't understand why, but I will never understand the minds of white men.

    "Two bros, chillin' in a hot tub..."

    Fast forward through an hour+ of crying and fake-outs, Dale proposes to Clare with a Neil Lane original, and Clare says yes!

    We love product placement.

    Which just paves the way for Tayshia to take over the season.
