The Bachelorette Recap: Let's Talk About Sex, Baby

The Bachelorette

Monday’s installment of The Bachelorette was perhaps the weirdest yet.

The episode, which began with Ian Thomson leaving the competition on his own terms, also included a faux-funeral for Kaitlyn in Ireland, a surprise performance from The Cranberries and a dramatic cliffhanger conversation between Kaitlyn and Shawn.

And yet, none of those moments were quite as strange, shocking and watercooler-worthy as Kaitlyn’s pre-fantasy-suite sex with Nick, which took place at the end of a one-on-one date in Dublin that featured make-out sesh after make-out sesh.

Kaitlyn has yet to break the news to her other contestants that she and Nick slept together, but even without that information, the remaining suitors — particularly Shawn, who’s getting more territorial by the minute — spent most of these two hours seething with jealousy. (And we’re not sure we can blame them.)

As always, we’ve compiled the highlights from this week’s Bachelorette installment, so view the gallery below — or click here for direct access — to revisit the wildest, wackiest moments from Week 6.
