Emily's first date will be with Sean who in the previous episode took her home to Dallas to meet his parents. Sean and Emily will tour the beaches of Curacao in helicopter and spend the day snorkeling and frolicking. Sean will open up to Emily about his feelings for her. Emily reportedly wrestles with her decision to allow him to stay the night, according to a press release by ABC.
While seating at the beach, Sean confesses to Emily that he didn't want to marry his ex-girlfriend of three years because he wasn't in love with her.
"I wasn't in love with her. I loved her but I wasn't in love with her," Sean said, according to an ABC video preview.
"She brought up marriage all the time and I would always kinda deviate from the conversation and that would ultimately cause arguments. And she knew something was up," he continued.
Emily seemed to be disappointed about the way he handled his previous relationship.
Emily's second date will be with Jef. On the previous episode, Emily visited Jef's ranch in St. George, Utah where she looked particularly happy with him. Tonight, Emily and Jef will sail aboard a luxurious Insulinde and share a paddleboard ride to a secluded white sand beach called "Klein Knip" and eat dinner along the seashore. Their date is expected to have "chemistry" and "passion" as she chooses whether or not to spend the night with him.
Emily hands out a letter to Jef written by host Chris Harrison in which he offers them a key if they chose to spend the night as a couple at the "fantasy suite."
Emily asks Jef to read the letter and "tell me what you think." What was Jef's response?
"I think that would be awesome...to spend time at the fantasy suite together, that will be great." he says as Emily blushes. "But I completely understand and respect that your daughter is going to be watching this, and my family is going to be watching this, and your family is going to be watching this. And they are involved in this process too. It's not just us, you know. And, there's a time and a place," the bachelor says according to the video preview.
On her last date, Emily will explore the sea aboard a catamaran with Arie and swim with him with a pod of dolphins in Fuik Bay.
As they swim with the dolphins Emily looks scared but said she feels protected with him and admires Arie seems not to be scared of anything and says "he would be a great dad."
Emily met Arie's family on last weeks' episode which was marked by an uncomfortable scene when his family started to talk in Deutsch in front of her and secluded her. Throughout the show, Emily and Arie have shared an intense physical connection but it remains to be seen if she will like him to spend the night with her at the "fantasy suite."
At the rose ceremony, Emily is overwhelmed by tears as she has to send home one of the bachelors.
"The Bachelorette" airs tonight at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
