Bachelor in Paradise Recap: Come and Knock on Our Door

Bachelor in Paradise Recap: Season 4, Episode 4

The tropical storm known as D-Lo leaves a path of destruction after her arrival in Paradise. Before Penguin Matt can even offer Kristina his condolences (?) the next morning, another disturbance makes landfall in the form of a spunky personality in a jungle-themed romper.

Her name is Sarah.

She has zero expectations but is hopeful that she will find her one true love in Paradise and would be oh-so-thrilled if that one true love’s name just happened to be Adam.

Come again, Sarah?

According to Raven, darling Sarah was also in Dallas during the hiatus when Raven originally met Adam. Also, they all spent the night together. Sure Adam and Raven hit it off, but did they cuddle like Adam and Sarah did the morning after? By the looks of Raven’s major eye roll, our resident queen bee of the plastics is not looking forward to Sarah “ruining everything.”

Sarah bounces down the stairs, date card in hand, into the open arms of BIP’s official welcoming committee: Jasmine and Sholphin. They scurry her over to the beach bed and all eyes are on Jasmine as she delivers the same line she’s asked five times before: “Who were you interested in before you arrived?”

Of course Sarah answers “Adam.” She gives Raven an embarrassed smile and listens as Raven extends her complete and total permission to ask Adam on a date. Raven also reminds her friend that Adam just landed on the island, so no one has had the opportunity to see where his head is at as far as potential romances go. Also, Ben Z is awesome, Ben Z is great, Ben Z is the best thing that every happened to Paradise, and on Wednesdays we wear pink.

The other girls immediately chime in, enthusiastically hopping on the Ben Z train. Sarah is surprised to hear that all of her female cast mates think Ben Z is the perfect guy and would be perfect for her.

Sarah is confused. If Ben Z is so fetch, why has no one else snatched him up?

She does her due diligence, grabs Ben for some alone time, and glazes over as he talks about his dog non-stop. Then she hits Adam so she can determine if he’s cool with her swiping right. Adam is down. Sarah waits a few minutes while the ABC Intern gathers everyone together so Sarah can officially invite Adam on her super fun date.

Raven declares “If he’s into her, I’m done.”

Well, I hope so.

Adam is excited about his one-on-one with Rachel Sarah and Sarah’s hope is that it’s fireworky. They both agree that they are attracted to each other, they both feel the chemistry, and they both want to go into “this” with an optimistic, yet realistic viewpoint. They make out and all parties feel the fireworkys.

Back at the compound, the islanders feel all the feels. Raven is nervous about Adam choosing Sarah over her. And by “nervous” I mean she is going to cut someone should they dump her on national television. Wells wonders to Nashville Danielle if there’s someone out there who is perfect for him. Danielle all but leans over the bar to smack some sense into his noggin, reminding him that he has to pursue a woman if he wants her. She refrains from pointing to her own head. Lacey cries huge tears that no one likes her and then completely changes her tune when Jasmine hands her a date card.

It’s from Jorge! Of Jorge’s Tourges! He wants to take Lacey and one lucky dude on a romantic tour!

Lacey asks Ben, Robby, Matt, and all the other bros if they want to be her out-in-public girlfriend? All the boys pass. They just want to be friends, but they all think she’s great. Diggy takes one for the team and agrees to go out with Lacey. They hop a few horses and follow Jorge to a romantic beach. He knows it’s romantic because he was conceived there.

via GIPHY

Jorge sticks around to pour drinks and make small talk. It’s essentially a two-on-one. Diggy takes the bull by the horns and asks Jorge to adios so he can make out with Lacey on the beach, in the surf, and by the ocean.

Lacey and Diggy head back to the resort and exactly eleven minutes later, Dominique arrives rockin’ a sweet set a braids. I wonder how long the producers made Dom stay in the limo until Diggy came back from his date? The girls go nuts over the “flirty, fun, and free” cast member who just showed up. Taylor is so excited, she actually leaves her traditionally horizontal position next to Derek so she can properly hug her friend before throwing the girl no one likes under the bus.

Priorities.

Taylor tells Dom that she should extend her date card to Diggy. He’s got a great vibe and would be perfect for her. Lacey looks mortified. Once again, it’s been ELEVEN MINUTES since she returned from shoving her own tongue down this dude’s throat. Is Taylor for real?

Why, yes. Taylor is for real. Dom asks Diggy to join her on a date. He agrees and Lacey falls to pieces. Taylor, because she is such a good friend with a high moral compass, goes to console her since “nobody else cares.” Taylor tells Lacey that she is sorry (she isn’t), but Dom and Diggy deserve to be together and this wasn’t intentional (it was). This is how Paradise works.

via GIPHY

Lacey: “Paradise sucks.”

Lacey knows that her rose is on the chopping block. Who will pick her now that Diggy is all up in Dom’s grill feeding her strawberries?

Quick Poll: How many of you hid behind your couch cushion when Diggy told Dom he was jealous of the strawberry? Was it just me? No? Yes?

Meanwhile, Nashville Danielle decides to pack it up and leave Paradise, blaming the fact that she hasn’t found love. I thought this was odd since Paradise isn’t over yet. She doesn’t know who will come strolling down those stairs in the next couple of days. Or does she?

Suddenly, everyone wishes her well and praise her for “saving lives.” I was confused again, until someone said she’s leaving for Kenya. We don’t know any other details. The cast seems sad. Even Wells, who shares that he and Danielle went out a few years ago, but ended up squarely in the friend zone. He thinks she’s way too good for him.

Nashville heads over to the bar to wish her crush good-bye. He offers to take her bags and walk her to the rejection SUV. He tells her that if anyone deserved to find love in Paradise, it was her. Then he kisses her passionately. TAKE THAT TO KENYA!

Are Wells and Danielle together today? I guess time will tell. To quote my friend Emily, “You know they eclipsed together in Nashville.”

One hundred percent.

What did you think of Sarah’s arrival and connection with Adam? Is Lacey going home? Will Raven go back to Ben? Can he love someone more than his dog? We shall see!

I remember nothing about Dominique. But I love how all of the guys think that D-Lo and Sarah and Dom have such fun, bubbly personalities (AKA they all think they’re hot without saying they’re hot).
Can’t wait to catch your podcast later.

Jill

I think they are grooming Raven as the next Bachelorette.

Deebee

I hope not — I’m so done with Raven. They need to have Sholphin as the next Bachelorette.

Donna
Donna

I hope not too! Has anyone noticed how far apart Raven’s eyes are set? Not that it makes a difference, just an observation. And, WILL THEY EVER GET BACK TO A COMPLETELY NEW AND UN-REPURPOSED BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE?????

Karen
Karen

I hope not Raven…AND I hope not Sholphin! I’m done with both! They are equally annoying! Sholphin is everyone’s buddy and has never made a real connection on these shows.

Kelli
Kelli

Not only did I hide behind the couch cushion, I was screaming PINEAPPLE at the top of my lungs. Kevin got scared and ran to my mom (who I am VERY sorry had to witness all this) and ignored me the rest of the night. And if Nashville and Wells eclipsed together, then that puts him out of the running for the next Bachelor because you know, they kind of frown on the Bachelor having a girlfriend already.

What is wrong with Taylor? Was she always a mean girl?

Christine
Christine

No Kelli, you don’t understand! Taylor is just using all her emotional intelligence to help others!
And poor Kevin. BIP is probably just too sleazy for him.

Kelli….you are right. Taylor is a mean girl. I hate to say “dis-ingenuous” so last season; but Taylor telling Lacy ” I don’t want you to think I intentionally told Dom to go out with Diggy”
Really…..doesn’t she realize she’s on tv? It was sort of ok to tell her only girlfriend that Diggy wasn’t involved with anyone …whatever…but to lie to Lacy and do a faux apology was beyond

abby
abby

not that i care whether people like taylor or not, but i do think taylor was trying to say her purpose (intention) for telling dominique (i’m sorry, i refuse to say “dom”) to go out with diggy was not to hurt lacy or ruin what she had going with diggy. i think her point was that she was not intentionally trying to get in the way of their relationship, but she understands she did that by just virtue of wanting dominique to go out with diggy, if that make sense.

Jessica

I heard in a podcast that Diggy and Dom had talked some before the show and they were both excited to meet each other. They made it look like Taylor’s fault because she was excited for her friend to arrive and finally meet the guy she was already interested in/talking to, but it was happening with or without Taylor.

Christine

When you said Raven “is going to cut someone should they dump her on national television” it made me laugh so hard. Then I thought that she might beat that someone with a spike heel. But she probably didn’t bring any spike heels to paradise, so cutting it is!
I don’t think You mess with Raven, and good for her! She should give Kristina a few tips.

Heidi

I love your recaps. You’re seriously the only game in town for me, Lincee.

I was completely cringing with the strawberry thing. Up until then, I found Diggy the most attractive guy there. Sigh.

Taylor — if she really said and acted like that toward Lacey, and that was not just editing, then, ewwwww. What a jerk. Karma, lady. Karma.

Thought: Wells will be the next bachelor. Danielle will come on the show as a contestant and their storyline will be strung along.

Babs
Babs

Exactly what I was thinking with Wells and Danielle . To be honest it won’t be fair to the new girls and really if you have known each other for 4 plus years and even went out before then they need to decide before he takes the gig!

Deebee

The strawberry thing was so bad!!

Erin
Erin

My husband (who I force to watch with me) and I have been thinking from the beginning that Wells would be the next Bachelor. They gave him the bartending job so he would be fresh on our minds, yet wouldn’t risk “finding love” and ruining their only option for one of the few guys we viewers still like. That kiss with Danielle threw me off though…maybe he’ll be the next Bachelor and they’ll bring Danielle back to be a controversial contestant??

Regarding Taylor…I didn’t understand on Nick’s season why people didn’t like her and I still don’t. She was thrown into Corinne drama when Corinne was the one being the real b***h. And last night she suggests Diggy to HER friend when everyone knew Diggy didn’t like Lacey and people dislike her for this? I don’t get it. She’s young and a bit immature but I really don’t get all the Taylor hate!

Babs
Babs

The more I think about it the more convinced I am that they have Wells in mind and they are having Danielle come on as a contestant. They would explain why she left without even seeing who else would appear in Paradise.

Cassie
Cassie

I was thinking that maybe they did that to kinda make sure we all knew that Wells was up for romance and could be assertive. He kinda has that “wallflower” thing going so maybe ABC wanted us to know that he’s up for the task.

Niki

I’m with you on the topic of Taylor. She’s young, she isn’t perfect, but I don’t think she’s that harmful. I find her endearing, albeit a tiny bit annoying at times.

Maya

Taylor proves that her redemption stint on BIP has ended. #sorrynotsorry. I am watching her as she pretends to reach out to Lacey, uptalking away, showing incredibly fake compassion. (Taylor knows how this show works and Lacey will see and hear what she said behind her back. Nice.) I hope Taylor realizes her counseling days are numbered with that style! I hear what she is selling but I am not buying.
Also did anyone catch that Carly said “SHE’S doing gymnastics” during the ultrasound portion of the show?

Babs

He jams all boys so they are probably hoping for a girl , but no way can they know this early.

Babs

Stupid autocorrect – Evan Has all boys

Shannon

Carly and Evan had a blood test already to determine the gender and it is a girl. (Yay!) They announced it on Instagram recently.

Babs
Babs

Thanks Shannon, did not even know you could do that!

BA B

I found out at 11 weeks that I was having a girl – there’s one genetic test you can get (and sometimes for free if you are an “older mom” like me!) that determines 1). if the baby has downs and 2). the gender. They literally take your blood, separate your blood from your baby’s, and look at the baby’s chromosomes. They count everything to make sure it is healthy, and then notice (if you want to know) the Xs and Ys. It is so freaking cool!

Laura Jean

Fireworkys for the win, except that this one takes the cake:

Are Wells and Danielle together today? I guess time will tell. To quote my friend Emily, “You know they eclipsed together in Nashville.”

One hundred percent.

Lacy, Lacy…you will find love, but don’t let yourself be used by ABC in this failed pursuit of finding it!

Cassie
Cassie

Someone has to say it “You know, people who eclipse together, stay together.” LOL!

tracee

Great photo Lincee! Jorge was the best 3rd wheel ever. Lacy is the first girl on a BIP or B date I’ve ever seen stuffing her face seconds before the kiss.

Hated seeing her be so desperate asking all the guys if they went on a date with her would it be as friends? De-meaning…..Make it stop

Deebee

I never cared for Taylor but thought I would give her another chance. Well after her meddling and telling Dominique to pick Diggy, I’m back to my initial impression of her. I didn’t see where Taylor was informed that Diggy didn’t “dig” Lacey so she should have stayed out of it.

Jen-Nay
Jen-Nay

Nashville should have told her rejection SUV driver to “pump the brakes!”

AlphaKitten

Thanks for the recap!

I hope Wells is not the next bachelor. He looks…and sounds very much like he might be a smoker? Either that or he has serious vocal fry in a bad way or needs to drink more water. I don’t find him attractive and he is awkward on camera. I hope he is happy with Danielle and that settles it. I would much rather see Chase from JoJo’s season.

BeanersForever

Hey Lincee — Hope you are high and dry in Houston!! Us Beaners are thinking of you and praying for you — Let us know you are safe and sound when the storm clears.

Christine

Praying for you, your family, and your city.
