The Purple Fig: 'The Bachelorette' Recap Episode 2: Kisses and Lies

This week, The Bachelorette gets serious. The first whisperings of eternal love are mustered, the exchanges of saliva occur with a frivolous regularity, and a federal prosecutor from New York is almost brought to tears about being lied to and interrupted by another male contestant.

The week kicks off with a handsome, if rather elf-looking guy named Brooks being taken on a date to shop for wedding dresses. The couple takes it in good spirit and provides an opportunity for Brooks to show a playful side. After the gentle lubricant of an enjoyable session of trying on wedding dresses, the couple head up to the Hollywood Sign to sit atop the letter L, where they both gush about how special the moment is and share easy flowing conversation. The first kiss is a tidy, mostly closed-mouthed affair and with that Desiree declares herself open for business.
