JoJo's emotionally-charged, whirlwind world tour to find love comes back to the U.S. as she travels across country to visit Chase, Jordan, Luke and Robby. Are all these bachelors ready to be married? JoJo tries to find out from the people who know them best, as she moves closer to making her fairytale come true.

JoJo starts her hometown visits on a snowcapped mountaintop in Colorado, where Chase waits for her. He anxiously reveals to JoJo that because of his parents' acrimonious divorce, she will be meeting his parents separately. Her emotional conversation with his father offers her a much deeper understanding into this bachelor and why he has been so slow to reveal his feelings for her. After JoJo meets the rest of Chase's family, including his mother, Chase tells JoJo he's falling in love with her.

Next, JoJo travels to Chico, California, to visit Jordan's home. He takes her on a nostalgic trip down memory lane to his old high school, where JoJo is shocked to learn what kind of young man Jordan used to be. Then, it is on to meet his family. The one person who isn't there is Jordan's brother Aaron. Later, JoJo confides in Jordan that she's scared about their relationship. Jordan doesn't want her to ever doubt what they have.

JoJo then heads to Florida for a fun day of exploring St. Augustine's historic downtown district with Robby. During an idyllic seaside lunch, JoJo attempts to find out if Robbie is really over his last long-term relationship that ended three months before. The conversation goes well, but when Robby's mother shares the news that there is gossip being spread about him, will JoJo be able to trust Robby with her heart?

For her final hometown visit, JoJo journeys to the tiny town of Burnet, Texas, where she spends the day with Luke. The unsuspecting Bachelorette doesn't realize that she is not just meeting the war veteran's family, but practically the whole town! After a great day, Luke is so thrilled with how well JoJo fits in that he plans a special romantic scenario to express his feelings for her.

After an extremely emotional week, JoJo faces the most important rose ceremony so far. And once again, she struggles with whom to send home. She finally faces her final four men, ready to make her incredibly painful choice. However, she is interrupted by Luke with an unexpected confession of love. Our Bachelorette breaks down in tears. Will this change her decision? To be continued!
