Kaitlyn's move is swiftly becoming the pre-Rose Ceremony elimination, which, the more we think about it, is probably a more humane method than making these guys sweat out the ceremony. So when Kaitlyn heard from the other contestants that Clint and JJ were causing issues, she confronted Clint about the situation straight away -- a conversation that ended up being her final with the departing bachelor:
Clint was predictably upset, and when he and Kaitlyn re-entered the house, he wanted to know who had been saying bad things about him to Kaitlyn. Clint was likely looking to get an assist from JJ on taking some guys down with him. JJ had actually just finished telling the other guys that no matter what happens, he would always have Clint's back and JJ would be his friend for life. And then this happened:
