"I've really fallen for Sophie," Jarrod said in a voiceover, forgetting he's only ever had one date with her. In Sophie's world, she's happy to go meet up with Jarrod and his fam because she "adores Jarrod, and she loves wine". So let's just say they're both on slightly different emotional levels.
Upon seeing Sophie, Jarrod was mainly thrilled to show off the fact he can actually grow successful plants (aka grapes) when Blake isn't pissing on them. Apparently Jarrod uses his family as a "protective wall" because of all the past gold diggers that must've stumbled across his winery in the middle of nowhere and tried to steal his fortune.
Upon entering the house, Jarrod's mum swiftly whisked him away for some "meal prep" which basically meant grilling him until he was redder than usual. "Forget the food, forget the wine, forget the beer... are you in love with Sophie?" she asked. I was taken aback at this question. Forget the food and the wine?! Woman, are you crazy?!
"I've fallen for Sophie, and if all goes well tonight, then yes," Jarrod answered with as much emotion as FBI Agent Hotch on Criminal Minds.
The family sat down for dinner, and Jarrod's dad eyed Sophie off, looking alarmingly like his son staring at a dead pot plant. "I was going to ask Sophie if she'd like to go for a wander down the stairs... to have a chat!" Jarrod's mum exclaimed, definitely not sounding like a serial killer! Sophie's mind was on the same track, and her last words ever spoken on the show echoed in my mind. "If I don't come back, at least I died how I lived... surrounded by wine!" I love this woman, and I'll miss her terribly.
Kidding! She didn't get murdered or left in a barrel of wine! In fact, Sophie won Jarrod's mother over so much, Jarrod dropped the L-bomb on her before she left. Nothing like seven weeks, one date, and a hometown visit to know who your chosen one is.
