The 2015 season of “The Bachelorette” is nearing its end, and the competition is beginning to take a toll on star Kaitlyn Bristowe. With strong relationships developing with a handful of men in the house, the 30-year-old Canadian dance instructor is finding it hard to say goodbye after each rose ceremony. Things won’t get any easier in episode 8 -- because Kaitlyn will have to narrow the contestants down to three.

Ben H., Jared, Joe, Nick and Shawn B. are still in the running after Chris “Cupcake’s” emotional departure during his one-on-one date in episode 7. However, the synopsis teases that Kaitlyn’s “past mistakes” could jeopardize her remaining relationships.

Episode 8 will kick off with Ben H. easing the mood for Kaitlyn. The pair will have a drama-free trip to historic Innisfallen Island in Ireland. But just because one date is drama-free doesn’t mean that the other will be. The Bachelorette will have to go on a group date -- with Joe, Nick and Shawn B. Can things get any more awkward and tense between Nick and Shawn? Of course!

The episode description teases that their outing at Killarney National Park “leads to unexpected drama and heartache.” So, does that mean Kaitlyn finally comes clean about her passionate night with Nick? Viewers will have to watch to find out.

Kaitlyn will be in an emotional and tense situation by the end of episode 8 when two men are sent home. However, the synopsis adds that she’ll begin to “doubt her decisions and relationships for the first time.”

Things will take a turn when she goes out on her first overnight date, leaving the Bachelorette “optimistic.” But, unfortunately, that won’t last. A “face-off” between two contestants will become so explosive that Kaitlyn’s happy ending will be put at risk.

Episode 8 of “The Bachelorette” will be shown on ABC Monday, June 6, at 8 p.m. EDT. Who do you think will get sent packing? Tweet your thoughts to @AmandaTVScoop.
