Tonight's episode begins, per usual, with Ashley on a contemplative walk wearing ridiculously high stripper shoes, this time through the streets of Hong Kong, where she whines via voiceover about how she just can't get over Bentley.
Yeah, we get it.

Chris starts things off with a bang by informing the heartbroken dentist that her former beau, Bentley, is, wait for it… IN THE HOTEL.
To which Ashley screams "Shut UP!" She then starts bawling and kicks Chris Harrison in the nads. Kidding.
She actually sits in shock for a minute and then heads over to Bentley's room, where they sit down and share a nice afternoon of awkward silences. Ashley eventually gets down to business and spills her guts about how hard it was when he left. Unexpressed Feelings Never Die
Bentley, at this point, seems to be playing ball. He says missed her and was surprised at how being back in Salt Lake City was not nearly as fun as being coddled by a staff of TV producers day and night, flown all over the world for free and jerking her around.
Alas, the conversation goes nowhere. Bentley makes zero effort to win Ashley back and in the end, they make that "DOT DOT DOT" he promised her a stone cold PERIOD.
At this point you know the producers are pissed. They were banking on Bentley to bring the pain! He didn't confess. He didn't play games. He didn't do anything. He just sat there with a stupid grin. Dating Games Men Play
Ashley (finally) is like, "Hmm. You're kind of an idiot. I'm outta here."
Ready to move on and get her Hong Kong on, Ashley takes Lucas for a night on the town, where they make out on a pirate ship and she gives him a rose.
The next day on the group date, Ashley takes the boys boat racing. It wasn't nearly as eventful as the concussion-causing boxing death match of the week before. The boys do their best trying to drag Ashley away for a little one-on-one. Ames makes out with her in the elevator. Ben F. snags a kiss on a balcony. Ryan sneaks her away, too, which the guys love, because they hate hanging out with him. It works, and she gives him the rose.
Next day, JP finally gets a good date with Ashley. She admits that she's falling for him, but not before spilling her guts about Bentley being in Hong Kong and what a wreck she was when he left.
The next night, Ashley arrives at the cocktail party super happy that she's over Bentley and can't wait to tell the guys that she kicked that d-bag to the curve.
She's like, "Hey guys! I'm over Bentley! FINALLY! Yay me!"
Then the guys are all like: "WTF? You told me three weeks ago you were over Bentley. This is weird. You suck."

Ashley can't believe that telling eight guys that are way into her that she was only half into them because of Bentley doesn't go as well as she thought.
JP tries to defend her, but the guys are mad. Except Ryan, he never gets mad. The rest of the cocktail party is a total bitchfest with all the boys commiserating about how betrayed they feel.
