Coming up this Monday on The Bachelorette:

The stakes are high as Jillian leaves her Los Angeles villa for an exciting, emotionally-charged journey across the country to visit the final five men’s hometowns. Her bonds grow stronger with some of the bachelors, but she is severely tested by some of the families and questions her connections to Jesse, Kiptyn, Michael, Reid and Wes. And nothing can prepare her for what happens when an infatuated Jake returns to warn Jillian that Wes is the bachelor with the girlfriend. In one of the most dramatic confrontations in “Bachelorette” history, the two men face off right in front of her. Finally, one heartbroken bachelor returns to try and win Jillian back, but is it too late?

Whoa. That’s a lot to do in one episode! Luckily, we have a whole two hours to get to it all. That’s longer than most movies that I like to watch! (Yes, Disney musicals.)

After the jump, 4 clips from Monday night’s episode, including a sweet Reid moment with his dad, a Parent Trap scenario with Michael, Kiptyn’s parents’ patented Lasagna Test (it’s like the Hot Dog Test 2.0), and the beginning of Jake’s confrontation with Jillian about Wes!
