Desiree is smart enough to keep her trap shut, but Kacie thinks since she’s the hardened combat vet here, she has a position of enough power that she can talk to Sean about Amanda and win some brownie points. She uses some convoluted logic that since she’s Desiree’s friend and Amanda is clearly Evil, she’s stuck in the middle. Even though she’s not a “drama person.” It hurts her. To his credit, Sean’s BS detector immediately starts loudly bleeping and flashing lights. After their conversation, Kacie knows she’s screwed. And because Des, Amanda, and Kacie have all confused Sean, and the remaining ladies aren’t interesting enough to give any airtime, Lindsay barely squeaks by with the date rose.
As AshLee (Enough. Her name is wrong. I’m calling her AL from now on.) prepares for her date with Sean, accompanied by animated-birds-helping-her-dress music, she tells us how excited and positive she is. She wants to talk to him about her past and adoption. Everything she’s dreamed of is happening, and nothing can go wrong.
And BUM BUM BUM (not dramatic music, actually the sound effect of ThatBitchTierra hitting the stair steps as she falls down,) we have an emergency!
Sean walks in the house right after it happens, and plays doctor, diagnosing her with a concussion and telling us how concerned he is about her. Tierra, for her part, isn’t saying a word to anyone. Finally the paramedics show up, and strap her up into a neck brace, and try to get her to come with them to the hospital, but she refuses treatment. She finally talks and says she’s fine, and wants to be left alone. The other ladies are not impressed, and they’re all (especially AL) convinced she must be faking if she won’t go to the hospital. I have to say, as an incredibly clumsy person myself, I cannot tell you how many times I have fallen down stairs. Sometimes I have badly injured myself, and other times I have not, and it is always embarrassing. I’m not a huge fan of Tierra’s, but she really does seem fine, and she has every right to feel embarrassed, and these chicks need to back off.
Isn’t it bad enough that I had to wear the Cone of Shame?
Sean and AL finally head out for their date. Sean tells her he wouldn’t rather have anyone else on their date, but doesn’t expand on that thought, and she doesn’t ask him why. Sooo… more empty compliments. They arrive at Six Flags Magic Mountain. She is not wearing the right shoes or outfit for an amusement park. I don’t know why they let her get away with a short dress and heels for this date. Didn’t anyone tell her that she would be much happier in sneakers and shorts?
AL: Finally we get a chance to sit down for a second! These shoes are killing me after walking 20 feet in them!
