This week’s continued Fantasy Suite episode starts off the morning after Nick and Raven’s overnight.
They woke up all cuddly and cute and it just looks like they’ve been dating for years.
But the real question: did Raven finally get her “fireworks”? Looks like she did!
Raven’s just skipping around Finland like a little kid. Wow, Nick must be good at what he does.
Moving on to Rachel’s Fantasy Suite date and TBH we’re torn whether or not we even want to watch it: what’s the point? WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO US BACHELOR!?
Nick tells Rachel they’re going to do some cross-country skiing and Rachel’s like, “WTF is that? Never heard of it.”
LOL poor Rachel is literally falling everywhere and looking like Bambi trying to skate. And Nick’s like, “Girl what are you doiiiing??”
They finally reach their destination (Rachel is counting her blessings that the skiing is finally over) and they have some drinks by the fire while chatting about how scared they both are by this whole experience. They seem so on the same page we don’t even get what makes him want to send her home.
Then they go on the cutest sleigh ride behind a freaking reindeer. K this is an actual fairytale.
Fast-forward to their dinner date where Rachel finally gets out of her head and tells Nick she’s falling in love with him.
And immediately after she says it she goes, “OMG!” and starts giggling like a little kid. It wasn’t as beautiful as Raven’s profession of love, but still very cute.
Nick looks suuuper happy and tells her he’s falling for her 100 percent. K, like seriously why does he send her home??
Nick offers her the Fantasy Suite key and Rachel accepts. Rachel’s on cloud nine right now and all we can think about is that she’s getting sent home in like a half hour. UGH poor girl.
The next morning, Nick and Rachel wake up being the cutest ever and Nick decides to make her breakfast. Uhhh what’s that about Nick? Raven didn’t even get a bowl of Cheerios.
Side note: We love Rachel even more for rocking this penguin onesie.
Time for Vanessa’s Fantasy Suite date! Here’s hoping she’s not as annoying as usual. Vanessa’s like, “what are we doing today? Tobogganing? Skiing!?” Then Nick walks her to this ice bath and Vanessa’s like “I want to murder Nick, chop him up and feed him to the reindeer.” We’re with you girl—no guy is making us get in a freaking ice bath.
Nick’s like, “if we can jump in this ice bath together we can do anything together.” Yeah, doubtful…
OMG this just looks like the worst thing ever, Vanessa really must love Nick to get in an ice bath not just once but multiple times. #crazystupidlove
Finally, after freezing their butts off, it’s time for the hot tub, where they have a cute little cuddle and then immediately dive into an Important Adult Convo.
Vanessa starts listing off the things she won’t compromise on in a relationship, like spending every Sunday with her family. Sooo she’s basically saying she won’t even consider moving for Nick? Then Nick’s all like, “what if we’re too similar?” A.k.a what if we’re both too stubborn to move for one another? This conversation is going suuper well. Then in her ITM Vanessa goes, “I hope that at the end of the day Nick still remembers that when it comes to a relationship it’s based on compromise.” K but you literally JUST said you’re not going to compromise on basically anything. So Nick has to make all the compromises? UGH Vanessa is honestly so annoying. <<<Rant over.>>>
Anyway, moving on to the evening portion of their date, Vanessa says she’s ready to tell Nick that she loves him. K but didn’t you already? Why do these girls keep forgetting that they’ve already said ILY?
Once again they get right into talking about serious issues: like who the hell is going to move if they get engaged!? Vanessa asks Nick is he could see himself moving to Canada and Nick’s like, “I’m really proud to be American, TBH.”
After resolving absolutely nothing and getting nowhere in this conversation, Vanessa tells Nick she loves him (def for the second time) and Nick offers Vanessa the Fantasy Suite key. She obv accepts.
Nick and Vanessa wake up looking like they’re filming a scene in romance film.
They kiss and say their goodbyes, then Nick heads out. No homemade breakfast for Vanessa.
Rose Ceremony time! We know it’s going to be Rachel and we’re v. v. v. sad about it.
In her ITM, Vanessa starts complaining again about Nick having feelings for other women (a.k.a. the main plot of the show) and she says her insecurities haven’t come out until now. DEF not true.
Nick gives roses to Raven and Vanessa, which means Rachel’s time has finally come *tear.* She says her goodbyes to Nick and the girls (did anyone notice how cold her hug with Vanessa was???) and Nick hardly even explains why he’s sending her home!! UGH.
Then she gets v. emotional during her limo exit. Chin up girl, you’re going to be dating 25 hot dudes in like a month. This scene would’ve given us way more feels if we didn’t already know she was the Bachelorette.
Ummmm wait what? The episode is only an hour? And the Women Tell All is TWO HOURS!? Literally WTH Bachelor.
