Later that night, the girls go with Sean to the lodge. They sit for some dinner and wine. Sean tells them that he had fun with them today and hopes to get to know them more. Sean is confused on whom to give the rose to. He pulls Tierra to the side and says that there is so much tension. She tells Sean that she is nervous because she has the biggest heart. Tierra tells Sean that she was with a guy for five years despite him going through rehab. She says that he passed away back in 2009 and says that she is afraid of getting close to someone and losing someone. She comes back and Sean says that he has a rose and gives it to Tierra and apologizes to Jackie. Sean says that he is starting to see things in Tierra more than with Jackie. In the cab ride, Jackie says that Sean is a great guy and Tierra is not a good decision for him. Sean and Tierra snuggle up and watch the fireworks.
