This episode brought us a little more substance (well, before the "Women Tell All" started anyway). They continued with the three fantasy suite dates and we finally said goodbye to Rachel. As much as I love Rachel, I am glad she's finally done here and we can look forward to seeing her next season as the next Bachelorette.

Let's get right to it...

Rachel's date. Unfortunately (for us, and for Rachel) this date was everything you'd want in the Fantasy Suite date: it was sweet, honest, playful and emotional. Rachel opened up and Nick seemed responsive. There was chemistry. Of course, we all already knew the outcome so it wasn't a huge shock that Rachel was the one to go home, but actually - it was. For me, it came out of the blue. Out of the remaining three girls, Rachel and Nick's relationship seemed to be the most mature, most relatable and most realistic. And she wears the damn cutest onesie jammies! Why did he send her home? Hmm...

Kristina. This girl needs her own show. Or a non-profit - I can't decide. I just love her...and from the looks of it, so does everyone else. Another case for how you can go on the Bachelor and be there for love but also create relationships and friendships with the other women in the house. Go Kristina! 

Alexis. I don't think we've seen the last of Alexis. She most definitely will be on Bachelor in Paradise and I, for one, cannot wait. I think this girl is wacky but probably has a heart of gold. I want to learn more about her.

I'm not even going to get into it, but I'm guessing (OK hoping) that Raven was not a willing participant in this nonsense. They probably got her to film some fun footage in Finland and then edited it into this sexual bit. I thought it was ridiculous.

"Women Tell All." I can't even. Here's a list of things I do not care about:
1. Corinne and Taylor's beef
2. Corinne's nanny
3. OK, truth: anything about Corinne and the people who think she's awesome
4. The opinions, thoughts or anger of any of the girls who didn't make it to at least final 6
5. Liz and her sob story. I CANT EVEN.
6. Danielle L's sob story. Girl, you were boring!

Is it just me or did all of these women act like they'd never seen this show before? You get broken up with on TV. For little to no reason. That's the point. Shut up and deal with it!

SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE of Episode 10

Vanessa's Date. I have to be honest, as much as I really like Vanessa - and her gorgeous hair - I see red flags with these two all over the place. Now, that could just be ABC manipulating us with their editing. Perhaps Nick and Vanessa have been such a foregone conclusion from the get-go that they have had to bob and weave to keep us guessing. I'll give them that. But at face value: I don't think they work together. What would be a nice surprise? If we find out that they are madly in love and Nick will do anything and live anywhere to be with her - and vice versa. But we already know he's going on DWTS - I can't imagine that gets things started off on the right foot if he chooses Vanessa.
