Tensions are already mounting among the 17 remaining bachelorettes and resentment runs high when it's revealed there'll be two special one-on-one dates — each with a rose at stake — and a group date.
First, Ashley S. is invited to find her "love song" with Brad. Brad tells Ashley that they'll be crooning a tune of their own and when Seal himself appears, it's a moment she will never forget. Then, 12 bachelorettes get ready for their close-up as Brad takes them to shoot their own action adventure movie. At the cocktail party everything seems to be going his way, when one bachelorette makes a startling departure that jolts the ladies and leaves Brad reeling.
