The Bachelor in Paradise singles were surprised at the most recent rose ceremony. In Thursday’s episode of the spinoff series, a woman went missing when it was time to hand out the roses and left the beach for good without saying goodbye.
But before that went down, the drama between Eliza and Aaron continued, as Charity Lawson arrived to check on her friends and warn them about her exes, if necessary.
However, during Charity and Eliza’s conversation, the former wife admitted that Aaron’s ex-girlfriend drama didn’t sit well with the man she met on her season of The bacheloretteand encouraged Charity to continue with her relationship, albeit with caution.
With that, Aaron pulled Eliza and they “took a step in the right direction”, seemingly cementing the situation the next day when he sent her favorite breakfast to her room along with a love note. Later, Eliza decided she had to “take the plunge” when Aaron said he wanted to make things exclusive between them.
Elsewhere, the love triangle with Kat, Olivia and John Henry raged on, leaving the latter torn between his ‘amazing bond’ with Olivia and Kat’s ‘new side’.
Things escalated when Kat invited John Henry into the hot tub, and they started making out, causing Olivia to once again question the other woman’s motives.
The two faced off on the beach, with Olivia blasting Kat for chasing John Henry without speaking to her, and Kat denying that she should extend that courtesy to her.
Tanner was also unsure as he considered his options, which included Davia, Genevie and Rachel.
Blake and Jess didn’t have a hard time, as on the day a couple who decided to take a break the week before found their way back to each other.
Brayden was also confident in his new bond with Becca, but when it came time for the rose ceremony, the newcomer was missing from the group. Host Jesse Palmer pursued her and she confessed, “I feel like there was a lot of doubt about my relationship with Brayden and I’m kind of listening to that. I wanted to see if what we had was real, but I’m just scared. What if it isn’t?”
Jesse told Becca to make a choice, and she did, leaving Paradise for good without saying goodbye.
In the end, the roses were handed out as follows: Aven to Kylee, Tyler to Mercedes, Peter to Sam, Aaron to Eliza, Blake to Jess, Tanner to Rachel and John Henry to Kat.
That left Brayden with his new rose, which he decided to award to Olivia because she “deserves that chance” to find love.
The next day, even though John Henry hadn’t chosen her, Olivia was still worried about him being with Kat, whom she considered “not a good person.” John Henry pulled Olivia in for a chat, during which he apologized for the way he handled the situation, but confirmed that she would still move on with Kat.
All hope was not lost for Olivia when Michael walked to the beach and pulled her along for his first interview. However, fans will have to wait until next week to see who Michael asks out, as he also had good conversations with Kylee, Mercedes and Sam.
In the preview for next week’s episode, Aven and Kylee agree they’re falling in love, while Rachel may find a new connection with her ex Jordan. Everything seems to be going well between Blake and Jess, until Katie Thurston shows up.
‘I was in love with this girl. I haven’t seen her in two years. What is she doing here?’ Blake asks the cameras, before Katie tells him, “I’m glad to see you.” If I could go back and do it all again, I would.”
“I don’t know what’s going to happen when Katie comes in. I don’t think there’s a worse scenario,” Blake says in a confessional, to which Jess agrees: “My whole journey here just failed.”
