After a night of dramatic break-ups, the Bachelor in Paradise cast is still trying to make sense of it all. While things are looking sunny for most couples, a cloud looms over the brokenhearted Joe Bailey, Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon. To make matters worse for Joe, the couple he wronged, Mikey Tenerelli and Juelia Kinney, is given an overnight date and everyone couldn’t be happier for their second chance at love. Mikey whisks his lovely date away on a private jet to Guadalajara, where they are treated to an exhilarating Lucha Libre wrestling match and discuss their future as a couple. After proving to be the man she has been looking for, Juelia grants her date permission to stay the night with her in the fantasy suite.
Back at the house, as the cast begins to question the authenticity of a newly single Samantha Steffen, a disgruntled Joe pulls her aside and threatens to expose her lies in order to clear his name as the house villain. Escaping all the drama, Kirk Dewindt surprises Carly Waddell with an impromptu fishing date where they discuss their future as a couple and take in a stunning sunset, leaving Carly convinced she has found her husband.
The next day, Joe decides that his doomed relationship with Samantha is still salvageable. He seeks advice from Ashley I., who suggests that he attempt a fresh start with Samantha. But later that night, in a moment that is hard to watch, Joe’s attempt to win her back falls flat, leaving him heartbroken and embarrassed. To make matters worse, Justin Reich from Kaitlyn’s season arrives in Paradise with a date card and has his eyes on Samantha. Despite Joe’s protests, Samantha agrees to join the new arrival on his date. Everyone is stunned by Samantha’s behavior, leaving them questioning who the real villain of Paradise is!
