After a quick 10 minute replay (aka filler) Megan finally sits down with Jake and begins to tell him about her night (except for that passionate af kiss). She's very emotional about it all and isn't hiding anything. Jake tells her how he had been freaking out (with a very calm face) waiting for her all day. But now that she's back, and has brought Hercules with her, he's feeling very jealous (with a very calm face). He's actually surprised (still with a very calm face) that he's jealous and realises that it means he cares for her, which is a new thing for him. Caring is a new thing? Yeah never would have guessed that. Can one of the producers please remind him of how he treated Flo? It's funny how he has no remorse for Davey, but he feels jealous over Hercules exerting some man muscle over Megan now.
The next morning Megan wakes up and tells the girls that she actually does want Jake. Kissing Hercules gave her the clarity that she needed. As much as she's been asking Jake for days to go deeper with the conversation and connection (and subsequently got that with Hercules for a night), she really just wants a superficial relationship with a guy who doesn't give any facial expressions. Telling Jake that she kissed Hercules elicits this reaction...
Leah is chatting at the bar with Simone about now wanting to stay (which will change any second now). Simone gives her some advice about audiences siding with a girl who’s heartbroken, so she goes with that. Yeah, wait for American Jared to dump her (which I’m sure he did the night before around the bonfire) and everyone will side with her… Uh, can one of the producers send Leah the memo that BiP is filmed like Enemy of the State – cameras everywhere. I’m eye rolling so hard at this point that I swear I can go back in time.
PS. When do we get the fire dancing magic show?
