OK, let’s go on. The last 3 episodes focus on the last 2 men, so we get a lot more screen time for our JP. Therefore, I will do 1 post per Episode + 1 for AFTR. Hope that’s OK with you 🙂
*** Episode 08 – Home Town Dates ***
First off, I loved this episode, and so many things in it: JP’s mum, Roslyn, JP’s excitement at Ashley meeting his parents, and of course, the “Can’t hide this feeling” moment, to name but a few. So here we go on our nostalgic journey through this episode!
Roslyn… How beautiful does this place look!? Here are a couple of pics:
I found hilarious that one of the first shot of the JP Hometown visit was of…. his shoes. I guess ABC made a point to show us that they weren’t (too) bad this time LOL. But could have done better 😉
Onto our favorite Cupcakes, I loved how happy they were to be together, and how comfortable they looked. Noticed, as usual a lot of hand-holding and caressing 🙂
Moving on to the star of the show, you guessed it, HotSkates! 🙂 (although the Lasagna may have something to say about that!). We all love this bit, and the song that go with it, but I also love the simple intimacy and comfort we saw between Ashley and JP, before, during and after the skating.
I think another moment that really showed how comfortable they already were, was JP’s fall (it was hilarious and thankfully painless, except maybe for his ego 🙂
Watching it again to get the screen grabs, I couldn’t help laughing at JP’s “I just didn’t want to make you feel bad”! Yeah, right!
Now, onto the musical part of the episode 🙂 You know what I mean. So for this, I will stay silent and let you hum our favorite tune (sadly my blog does not come with Audio!) while scrolling through the romantic pics below. Enjoy…
After the skating, they had an adorable picnic, including “classy” paper cups and wine. And a chat on Jp’s joy at introducing Ashley to his parents, as well as (again…) mentions of his past GF.
Meeting the family was amazing, only down was that we did not get to see Ashley having a chat with JP’s Dad Peter, or seen his thoughts on her. I would have liked that. But I do love JP’s mum, Ilene, I think she is GAS! (not sure we say this in the U.S, but it’s a cool word in Ireland!) Another really cute, almost missable, detail was the hug between JP and his brother Roy… Spot the hand on JP’s shaved head? Love it!
Last but not least… the SWEET MULLET!
I hope you enjoyed! Photo recaps of the Overnight and of the Finale and Proposal… NEXT WEEK 🙂
Love you all, and remember…
