The Bachelor recap: Sibling Rivalry

Hometown dates get derailed by Catherine's meddling sisters and Desiree's angry brother -- leaving Sean to decide which family he likes the least
Ep. 08 | Aired Feb 18, 2013

FOUR WOMEN AND A FUNERAL Desiree and Catherine wait to learn which one of them will pay the ultimate price, while AshLee and Lindsay are all, "We got this."


Harrison to the portrait gallery! I repeat, Chris Harrison, please report to Sean in the portrait gallery! The host drops a few sage words of advice -- "Get this right" -- and then disappears into the night, leaving Sean to figure out his "lose-lose" situation on his own. (Just like being a paratrooper, buddy -- deal with it!) In the end, the Bachelor gives the final bud to Catherine. (Uh-oh, Nate. Your sister is going to kill you when she gets home.) Sean walks Desiree out and sits with her on the Pity Bench to explain what just happened. "I know you have every quality that I'm looking for in a wife," he says in hushed tones. "That's why I think I may wake up tomorrow and realize this was a giant mistake." Dude, if you were trying to make her feel better you're doing a terrible job.

What follows is a 43-second long goodbye hug next in the driveway. "I'm going to miss you so much, I really am," murmurs Sean into Desiree's shoulder. "Then don't let me go!" she whimpers back. Sadly, rules are rules -- no rose, no romance. Into the Reject Limo you go, toots! "I don't even know what I'm going to do about my life," sobs Desiree. Don't worry, honey; there's always The Bachelorette! (Are you on board, rose lovers?)

Well folks, you know what to do. Tell me how you're feeling: Mad? Sad? Indifferent? Should Desiree cut the brakes on her brother's car or will a swift kick in the nuts suffice? And will you be tuning into Sean Tells All tomorrow? Post your thoughts now, and be sure to check out Chris Harrison's blog over on PopWatch when you're done. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to figure out who the eff I'm rooting for. This may take awhile.
