Brad and the six remaining ladies are hitting the beach in Anguilla! Will there be trouble in paradise? Probably.
Emily gets the first of three one-on-one dates with no roses. They chopper off to their own little private island in the middle of the Caribbean. Brad admits he gets nervous around her. The sun and moon literally align making for a perfect day, but Emily still isn't sure if she wants The Bachelor to meet her daughter. Brad breaks the rules by telling Emily he's giving her a rose at the next ceremony. Ball's in her court now.
The Dominoes Effect
Shawntel gets the next one-one-one date. Brad loves this lady's confidence which is apparent in a dominoes game with a few locals. Shawntel tells Brad that she's falling in love with him. That's great news, but Brad wonders if their date can possibly top the one he had with Emily. Brad finds himself opening up about things he doesn't talk about with anyone else. He and Shawntel are treated to a concert by Bankie Banx, who has been called the Anguillan Bob Dylan. They end the day with a late-night dip and a kiss.
Keeping Things at Bay
Britt gets one-on-one date number three. They ride a yacht to a remote spot called Little Bay to do some cliff jumping. Britt's pretty scared but eventually leaps into the water.

Brad tells Britt that he doesn't see a future with her, so he thinks it's time to say goodbye. Britt is escorted back to shore without Brad.
Brad gives an early morning wakeup call to Michelle, Chantal and Ashley, the triple threat he picked for the group date. One of these three will be getting a rose.
