"You're questioning me and you're judging me and feel like you have the right to when you don't at this point," Hannah told Luke.
The Fantasy Suites turned into more of a nightmare on "The Bachelorette" this week when it was time for Hannah B to spend some quality alone time with Luke P. As seemingly teased forever, Hannah finally said to Luke what fans have been saying on social media practically since the first episode.
To top it off, Luke managed to dominate and almost derail her FS experience with Jed, who was still smarting from coming in a veritable tie with Luke in the previous episode. In his defense, we get it completely.
"It kind of says a lot about your decisions when you can look at me and tell me that you're falling in love with me, but then also keep around somebody who's been toxic to this process for you and everyone else," said Jed, who has his own problematic backstory with a girlfriend he allegedly dumped to do the show. "It makes me feel worried that you have a hard time letting go of things that aren't good for you in your life."
Hannah, feeling challenged and almost walking away altogether, did wind up staying the night with Jed. Perhaps she respected that he was so candid and direct with his feelings and concerns. Honesty is always appreciated (but is he being completely honest?).
Finally, it came time for Hannah to sit with Luke. And with Jed's warnings still ringing in her ears, Luke's comments certainly did't put any of her concerns to rest. In fact, it only solidified some of the toxic words he'd said in previous episode and his overall controlling behavior.
At issue for Luke was his faith and Hannah's faith, trying to make sure they are on the same page. How he could still think that after everything they've been through on the show is remarkable, but it wasn't even necessarily what he wanted reality to be but how he went about it.
Apparently having never watched the show before, Luke seemed stunned that guys were looking forward to exploring the relationship more intimately if and when they reached this point. And while he admitted to not being a virgin, he'd decided he would be abstinent now until he got married and expected -- not asked or desired -- the same from her.
"I just want to make sure that you're not going to be sexually intimate with the other relationships here," he essentially demanded. "I totally have all the trust in the world for you but at the same time I just want to make sure we're on the same page. Like if you told me you're going to have sex or you had sex with one or multiple of these guys I would be wanting to go home 100 percent."
Hannah admitted to her own prior sexual relationships, but also tried to be direct with Luke in telling him that his approach in expressing these feelings is beyond awful and just wrong. She has always appreciated his honesty about what he wants; it's more about the controlling language and the misogyny.
"Honestly, I'm kind of mad because the way that you just said that is like, why do you have the right to do that," she told him. "Because you're not my husband and you're not-- It's just that you're questioning me and you're judging me and feel like you have the right to when you don't at this point."
She then hit back, telling him, "Sex might be a sin out of marriage; pride is a sin, too. And I feel like this is a pride thing."
Luke tried to backtrack his hard-line stance, saying that he'd be willing to work through a "slip-up" if she had had sex with one of the other guys, but this was only adding fuel to the fire. Did he catch the part about judgment? Calling a grown woman's decision a "slip-up" is beyond judgy.
Finally, she'd heard enough and was ready to articulate to Luke and the aghast audience at home just why we've had to endure this tool for so long on the show. "There have been so many times that I have wanted to say I am done with you, but my heart has just not allowed me to let you go," she admitted. "And I prayed so much for clarity and I feel like I have finally gotten clarity on you."
That clarity? "I want somebody who can get along with people, who doesn't have pride issues. There's so many things I don't want out of a husband that you've shown.' And ultimately, she realized, "I do not want you to be my husband."
When he refused to go, saying that she owes him the chance to plead his case, she let loose, telling him, "I don't owe you anything at this point, do you not understand that? I have like bent over backwards for this relationship, so I don't owe you anything."
As for the scene we've already seen where she admits to having had sex in a windmill (twice!), that card was played when he abjectly refused to get in the car. "There's something in me that is refusing me to get into that vehicle right now." That's pride, sweetie.
Even in her ultimate rejection, Hannah was trying to be kind to him and spare him that level of hurt but he just wouldn't let it go. So she let him have it with both barrels.
"I have had sex. And Jesus still loves me, "she told him. "From obviously how you feel, me f--ing in a windmill, you probably want to leave. And my husband would never say what you said to me."
Oh, and which date involved a windmill? Cue Peter, that sly dog.
She rejected Luke's final ploy, too -- an attempt to pray for her -- and finally watched him go. "I answer to the Lord, I don't answer to Luke," she said in a confessional. "I'm just relieved I never have to deal with him again."
Sooooo... WTF is Luke doing in next week's promo? Is he like the boogeyman? Okay, it' the "Men Tell All" special, but we still don't have to like it.
Regardless what the future holds, Bachelor Nation spent the night celebrating as if this was the finale and she'd already made her final decision. In all honesty, that decision will have a hard time looking like a better one than this decision no matter who she chooses. Hannah herself even jumped on to Twitter to give herself a pat on the back.
