Hannah shocks after hometowns, sends no one home

This season of “The Bachelorette” is (finally) winding down, as Hannah Brown heads to the final four contestants’ hometowns this week. But what she decides during the rose ceremony afterward will have viewers more unsure than ever about how this is all going to end.

Grab your snacks and your stress balls, Bachelor Nation. Let’s go home(town). (And no, we’re still not over Hannah dumping Connor.)

Peter the pilot, at your service

We start off the week with ol’ reliable Peter in Westlake Village, California, whose perpetual beaming smile makes it clear he’s devoted to our “Bachelorette.” Hannah’s looking to get more insight into his life this week, and boy, does she get it.

In what’s probably the episode’s funniest moment, the two go for a drive and she finds a condom in the compartment between the seats. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the pair’s relationship: Sweet and funny with a touch of sexy.

He then takes her flying (in a small plane; not exactly one of his Delta flights). They kiss in mid-air, which is cute but also concerning because shouldn’t he be focused on flying the plane?

Later, they head to his parents’ house, where they meet Peter’s dad (also named Peter), his mother Barbara and younger brother. The family is quirky and full of tradition,  shouting a German prayer before they eat Cuban food. But they’re also emotional, as when Peter chokes up talking about his grandparents.

Hannah reassures Barbara – who knows Peter risks heartbreak – about her intentions: “I can see that it could be Peter and I at the end of this. I wouldn’t allow him to invest his heart into me if I didn’t think that the end could be him and I.”

But can she really pick him if he hasn’t told her that he loves her? He ultimately musters that he’s falling hard for her and that he’s happy where he is.

Will that cost him a rose? We’ll have to see…

It’s time for Tyler

Hannah joins Tyler in his hometown of Jupiter, Florida, where the two go out on a boat, where they seem to always have a great time together.  This time, with minimal clothing. Hannah acknowledges there’s a physical chemistry in their relationship, but is he ready for marriage?

We’re reminded of health issues Tyler’s dad Jeff has faced (he nearly died two months before taping began),  and learn he had a paralyzed vocal cord. Tyler and Jeff embrace in a tearjerker moment.

Jeff says he hasn’t seen Tyler so happy in a long time, and he reassures Hannah that marriage is definitely something on Tyler’s mind. 

“You can’t plan to fall in love,” he tells her. “It just hits you right between the eyes. I’m ecstatic for him, if that’s the way it all turns out.” We’re ecstatic at how well this went.

Will the real Luke please stand up?

Hannah meets Luke in Gainesville, Georgia, and we quickly realize we’re on his turf when people aren’t actively mad at him every waking second.

Luke takes Hannah to “Sunday school,” a prayer group he goes to before church every week. He recaps his drinking, partying and sex-chasing past, and a heavenly epiphany he once had in the shower. Hannah feels affirmed by the goodness she’s seen in him – and it’s harder to get angered by her happiness  in the moment, given the environment we see him in (not that it excuses his previous behavior). 

Luke’s family is taken aback when Hannah and Luke explain his drama on the series. We get a sense of the origins of Luke’s narcissism when he chats with his dad.

“If she’s worth it to you, that means she’s worth you,” Mike tells him. Luke can’t see this not working out for him. Ah yes, there’s the cocky Luke we’ve come to know.

Family time has done Luke some good: He apologizes to Hannah and says he knows she may have concerns about getting where they need to be. He insists he’s going to continue showing her who he is and that, without a doubt, he loves her and is looking at his future wife.

In an aside, she says she’s falling in love with him (though, she confides, she hasn’t fallen).

Anyone else silently screaming?

Jed is just that into you — but his family isn’t

Our last hometown is in Tennessee with Jed, though the real star is Jed’s music.

Hannah and Jed visit a recording studio and write a song together. It’s saccharine and cliched but also adorable.

“I love you,” he tells her in the studio. “I can feel it.”

When it’s time to meet his family (and cute dog), however, they can’t feel it. His father Jerry questions whether Hannah and Jed have discussed his musical ambitions; his mother Gina doesn’t seem to trust Hannah, and asks if she’s told all the contestants that she’s falling in love with them; and his sister says she’s not sure that the match is a good thing. Ouch. .

Hannah says in an aside that she didn’t get the validation she expected. The date is all too reminiscent of when Colton didn’t get the approval he wanted from Cassie’s father during last spring’s “Bachelor” hometown episode.

Who will Hannah send home? 

Everyone returns to Los Angeles for the rose ceremony, and Hannah gives roses to Peter and Tyler. But before she can give the final rose … she walks away with it!

Host Chris Harrison asks if she’s OK, and she says she’s not and can’t make a decision. She knows she will close a door on a relationship that’s not done. The rational choice would be to dump Jed, and the more rational choice would be to dump Luke. But we digress.

Tyler tells Jed, “It’ll be complete baloney if you don’t get a rose,” a silly nod to last week’s nonsense when Luke dropped bologna on Garrett’s lap.

Hannah eventually returns … without a rose. She says he can’t give out a final rose. What does that mean?!

Our “Bachelorette” pulls an Oprah: Everyone gets a rose (yawn). 

Jed says it doesn’t’ feel like he even got one, and doesn’t want to be in the same category as Luke. Given his family’s ambivalence – not to mention the rumors circulating about his past – perhaps he shouldn’t be surprised he’d be up for elimination, too.
