After a week long absence that felt like an eternity, The Bachelorette returned Monday night. I was ecstatic to have Rachel Lindsay back on my screen, but it was definitely a tough episode to watch. Thankfully, all of Bachelor Nation went through it together and shared their tweets about the latest Bachelorette episode.
Unfortunately, a lot of the tweets involve Lee, who is arguably one of the worst Bachelor villains of all time. Lee instigating drama with my boy Kenny really upset me. Did Rachel not see what was going on? Being the Bachelorette seems so tough, as was clear during Rachel's breakdown early on in the episode.
With so much focus on Lee, not only did we get another episode that started with a rose ceremony but didn't end with one (This. Needs. To. Stop.), but we didn't even get to the second one-on-one date. What on Earth is going on with the schedule? No one wants it this way. These "to be continued..." episodes are more annoying than they are suspenseful.
Still, there were plenty of shining moments from Monday night, too. Pretty much everyone in the fandom started to fall for Dean during his alone time with Rachel, Peter continued to impress (obviously), and Josiah got a moment to shine during a group date spelling bee.
This episode was a lot to handle. Thanks to tweets like the ones below, we could all feel like we were watching together and process the key moments in unison.
Dean was definitely the hero of the episode.
I wonder what kinda decisions I would make if I had Chris Harrison in my ear saying "I can facilitate anything" #TheBachelorette— Leah Steuer (@popmitzvah) June 20, 2017
Chris Harrison is such a boss. I wish I had him in my corner.
Beyond accurate. Diggy's outfits will be missed.
Dean, may we suggest throwing up on Rachel if you feel sick? Vanessa did it to Nick and it worked out pretty well. #TheBachelorette— Bachelor Burn Book (@bachelorburnbk) June 20, 2017
I'm glad I wasn't the only one drawing parallels during this one. Still, I'm happy he didn't vomit on TV.
Age ain't nothing but a number.
Dean wit the good personality, good looks, and heartbreaking family story . Give him all the roses! #TheBachelorette— Vinny Guadagnino (@VINNYGUADAGNINO) June 20, 2017
Pretty much everyone is in love with Dean at this point.
Josiah: I'm the sexiest guy on this boat right now— The Bachelor Diaries (@thebachdiaries) June 20, 2017
me: what, did Peter fall off?#theBachelorette
What boat was he on?
Thank you, Will.
That was so unfair.
Too much, Josiah. Just way too much.
when peter comes on the screen i immediately feel relaxed, my acne is clear, my crops are watered #TheBachelorette— alex (@liamsglorydays_) June 20, 2017
Does Rachel know anything about Iggy? All he does is gossip.
What happened to the old days when there was a rose ceremony at the END of each episode? Can we get back to that? Please. #TheBachelorette— Marenah (@ReenaRachel) June 20, 2017
This is getting ridiculous. Can we please go back to the original format? (Yes, I included my own tweet.)
Ugh. Lee is still here and now we have to sit through even more?
Thankfully we all got through the whole episode together — one tweet at a time.
