Episode 5 Recap

Previously on The Bachelor, Molly did the walk of shame, Shannon picked her nose, and Nikki lost a head-to-head battle against Stephanie. At the Rose Ceremony, Jason Mesnick, that cad, decided to break all the rules and not give out the final rose.

The episode begins in the morning with the women in their jammies, getting the rundown of the week from Chris Harrison. There will be two one-on-one dates and a group date - and there won't be a rose on any of these dates - and, they'll all be flying to Seattle right away! Whoo!

In Seattle (or rather, Kirkland, because Jason isn't actually from Seattle proper), Jason races home to give Ty a big hug. I said this before, and I'll say it again, but I feel like Ty isn't as cute as some other kids I've seen. Maybe he'll get cuter as he grows up. By the way, the foliage is way too bright for a Pacific Northwest fall, so I'm sure there is some post-production color correction going on here.

The women pull up in a limo outside of the Olympic Fairmont Hotel, which is right in the middle of downtown Seattle. Jason is there to greet them and show them to their beautiful hotel suite. Jason invites Melissa to go on the first one-on-one date, much to Naomi's chagrin. Naomi is peeved because she's the only one who has not had a one-on-one yet, and it's critical because Jason has to decide soon whom to choose for the all-important hometown dates.

Jason gets ready for his date with Melissa, but Ty turns into Mr. Crankypants. Time for the Supernanny to do an intervention, methinks. He doesn't want his dad to leave at all, and demands some quality father-son time. Meanwhile, Melissa, dressed in her snazzy little black dress, is worried that he's late. Jason decides to forgo the fancy date he had planned (Space Needle, fancy restaurant, helicopter ride and a trip to a nearby waterfall) and to invite Melissa to come over to Kirkland for a chill night in instead. The other women are even more jealous since Melissa now has the opportunity to meet Ty ahead of schedule.
