Bachelorette Recap: Amy Schumer Rescues a Group Date, Britt and Brady Reunite.

After fighting for the title of Bachelorette last week, Kaitlyn Bristowe faced her first week of dates and quickly got comfortable in her new leading role with her new group of guys.With that pesky business of which woman would be out of the way, wanted to do nothing more than get to know her remaining suitors better during the second week of the show. But it was the men who began to self-destruct under the pressure this week. “Boxing is a lot like relationships,” undefeated professional boxer/daughter of Muhammad, Laila Ali said while training the fellas for the ring. First, though, Chris Harrison checked in to make sure the season’s star was in the right headspace, since the week prior she had seemed rather shocked. “I am so happy the guys chose me!” Kaitlyn chirped. “I cannot wait to get started.” Meanwhile, a crushed Britt Nilsson called her mother to tell her she was already coming home.

Also, judging everyone by their kissing ability! (Or is that just me?) We start with the classic Bachelorette “waking up” shot, in which Kaitlyn—and her new eyebrows—hops out of bed covered in makeup and looking hotter than ever. Making good on his promise to “find Britt” (which probably wasn’t all that hard considering she was still at the hotel), the musician showed up and pretty much swept her off her feet. “She’s the sweetest, most beautiful person I think I’ve ever met,” Brady gushed, while a brief update revealed that just one week later, Britt was calling him her “boyfriend.” Meanwhile, things didn’t go quite as smoothly for Kaitlyn. Ian joked about how he looked like the guy from the Old Spice commercials (he does), Chris the dentist unbuttoned his shirt, and Tony the “healer” totally bombed. All of the juicy details of tonight’s crazy episode inside… After last week’s rose ceremony, we were left hanging on The Bachelorette, wondering if Brady would end up being Britt’s prince charming. Daniel, Justin, Jared, Corey, Tanner, Kupah, Ben H., and Ben Z. all headed out for the first group date of the season, which involved a boxing ring — because the best way to get know a potential mate is by watching him try to beat the living daylight out of another potential mate.

Natural chemistry at an underwater photoshoot brought the bachelorette and architectural engineer, Clint Arlis closer together on the first one-on-one date. Laila Ali was along to help coach and to wax poetic about how both boxing and love require “focus, discipline, and commitment” (just in case anyone was questioning this choice of activity for a date). But whether Kaitlyn finds her happy ending or not, Britt is well on her way as she revealed at the end of the episode that she and Brady are definitely in a relationship!

First he (accidentally) sent Jared the hospital, then he told Kaitlyn about how his mother died when he was only 14, and then he got a rose, securing his place for the next week. Yes, he made out with Kaitlyn—though it’s probably worth noting that when Ben Z. returned from the hospital for a few minutes, he made out with Kaitlyn too. After an awkward altercation, the confident Canadian cutie just wasn’t having it and she decided to send him home even before the rose ceremony. “I don’t want to go home. Kaitlyn kept claiming that this is a trend for engagement photos now, which we’re not sure is totally true, but the pair seemed to enjoy it regardless. After doing some training with Laila Ali, it proved to be a bad date decision on Kaitlyn’s part when during the final round, Ben Z. hit Jared a little too hard, sending him to the hospital.

After a few dates, the suave Nashville singer asked the California waitress to be his girlfriend and the two held hands and watched the sunset, while Kaitlyn battled the bros at the mansion until a “To Be Continued” silenced the drama for another week. The good news, though, was that Amy and Kaitlyn hit it off great and Trainwreck star confessed, “I want to spend the rest of my life with her.” Whether Amy will get her wish remains to be seen, however, because Kaitlyn seemed pretty into JJ (whom Amy described as a “turd”).

As the guys enter the boxing gym, Kaitlyn explains that they are about to undergo a little bit of training—all the while someone who appears to be “A” stands ominously in the background. As much as Kaitlyn was looking for answers from Kupah, it didn’t happen because in the middle of her chat with someone else, she was handed a note to come outside – who could it be? He passive-aggressively accused her of keeping him around for dishonest reasons (though he didn’t specify what they were) and then told her, “I didn’t feel like there was a connection until right now.” Kaitlyn promptly responded, “To be honest, I actually felt a connection until now.” Oops. He then tried to recover by telling her how good-looking she was and that he really wanted to be there, but she was looking at him like she wanted to kill him.

She pulled him aside and told him, “I’m sorry; I have to let you go.” He tried not taking no for an answer, calling upon their mutual love of movie quotes as a reason to keep him around, but Kaitlyn remained unconvinced and sent him packing. After another group date at a comedy club, JJ, who was probably the most sense of humorless guy there managed to weasel a rose out of Kaitlyn by gushing about his daughter. But it quickly got to JJ’s head when later, during the cocktail party, JJ decided to steal time with Kaitlyn, even though the house agreed to let the few guys who missed out on dates, get some time with her.

At the evening portion of the date, Ben Z.—who literally didn’t even win any extra alone time for beating up a million dudes—finally tells Kaitlyn about his mom’s death. There was also Kupah, who proved how to quickly make Kaitlyn lose interest in you. #1, ignore her on the date. #2, confront her about her lack of interest.

Yep, he went there, and when she tried to explain that she felt that way about him, he continued to question her intentions. #3, brag to everyone in the house about you confronted Kaitlyn – oh, and be sure it’s loud enough for her to hear you. Making a stop on the way to the hotel, Jared—in a pink shirt, gold shorts, and Converse—is more confident than ever as he pulls Kaitlyn in for a kiss.

JJ, his slippers, and his red wine, are still super confident. (And if you’re wondering how he’s going to be feeling an hour from now, I’m betting it’s going to be “confident.”) Back at the group date, Kaitlyn gives the rose to Ben Z., and the couple shares their first kiss. Based on this connection, I’m betting this is the guy she sleeps with. (And can you blame her?) Okay, from one hunk of meat—her words—to another, it’s time for Clint’s one-on-one. Kaitlyn all but comes right out and says that Clint’s drawing of Chris Harrison riding a triceratops got him this date, so he better not mess it up now. Gisele, the underwater photographer—I feel like it isn’t good for your career to limit yourself to one photographic specialty—takes them through what they’ll be doing and gets them to their wardrobe fitting.

Once dressed, Gisele—photographer/yogi/sex guru?—takes them through some breathing exercises to calm them before she tells them that this date will pretty much tell them whether they have any sort of chemistry. But before they take the (literal) dive, let’s check in at the house, where Tony is pissed that the guys had to box each other, because this competition should NEVER lead to violence. Then, over dinner, Kaitlyn says she likes the fact that Clint, the architectural engineer, has his shit together. (Read: Is filthy rich) Then he gives a cheesy toast, and she returns the favor by giving him a rose.
