Things are getting ugly in the “Bachelorette” mansion. Lee’s cemented his villain status, and his Season 13 co-stars are catching on fast.

Episode 4 kicks off where the previous left off — at a cocktail party gone awry as tensions between Rachel’s remaining suitors flare. Lee continues to cause problems and some of his housemates — specifically Dean — think his outbursts may be motivated by more than dreams of “Bachelorette” infamy. He points out that Lee’s only having issues with people “he’s not used to seeing,” insinuating that racism may be to blame.

After Lee interrupts his conversation with Rachel, Kenny decides he can’t let his behavior fly. He pulls him aside for what could have been a calm confrontation but quickly escalates into something bigger. Kenny claims he thought he and Lee were friends but sees otherwise.

Lee maintains that his actions weren’t malicious — at least while he’s speaking with Kenny. He suggests that he was simply trying to get a little more time with Rachel. In a solo interview, however, the “Bachelorette” Season 13 bad boy lets out a maniacal laugh while joking about Kenny’s longevity on the show.

Although the drama’s going on behind her back, it’s weighing heavy on the “Bachelorette” star. She breaks down during an interview, prompting Chris Harrison to step out and alleviate the tension. He calls on the guys to gather and prepare to go home, and it’s clear that they’re nervous about being next.

The Rose Ceremony

Rachel gives roses to Will, Dean, Jonathan, Peter, Adam, Bryan, Matt, Josiah, Alex, Jack, Iggy, Kenny and, perhaps most surprisingly, Lee. The “Bachelorette” star says goodbye to the Season 13 cast members going home. After an emotional on-camera moment from Bryce and Diggy, who wish Rachel well on her quest, she proposes a toast.

“May we leave the negativity and the drama,” she says.

The men who survive elimination are whisked away the following morning for a fresh start in Hilton Head, South Carolina. They’re all determined to turn over a new leaf during the trip and show Rachel the best sides of them. Kenny commits to avoiding Lee as more of the Season 13 cast members begin catching on to his motives.

One-On-One No. 1

The first date card of the trip rolls in and Rachel’s guys are on edge. Dean’s summoned to meet with the “Bachelorette” star. She provided no insight into what they’d be doing, writing only, “Our love is about to take off.”

Rachel leads Dean to believe they’re just going to enjoy a picnic. To his surprise, the Goodyear blimp shows up with a message for them. They board the aircraft, and Dean’s nerves become obvious.

Rachel spends the beginning of their date holding his hand. She decides to try something else, leaving him to take the wheel of the blimp. Although Dean’s a little nervous about Rachel “dive bombing,” he warms up and eventually tries his hand at steering the blimp.

They get back on solid ground and head to dinner, where Rachel’s determined to get to know Dean better. She’s worried that his age will be a disqualifier. He quickly proves himself, opening up about the tragic loss of his mother and how it’s made him want to be a family man more than ever.

Dean describes his mother as the “most amazing woman of all time.” He shares with the “Bachelorette” star that she was diagnosed with breast cancer when he was 9 and beat it, only to relapse when he was 14. She underwent chemotherapy and was admitted to hospice care, at which time he asked when she was coming home and learned the answer was “never.”

Rachel and Dean wrap up their emotional dinner and head out to a Russell Dickerson concert. The musician plays a sweet love song for them as they sway to the music and kiss. He then praises them as being a “cute couple,” which suggests things are looking good for Dean heading into Week 5 on “The Bachelorette.”

He’s awarded a rose and is safe from elimination for another week in Season 13 of “The Bachelorette.”

Rachel, Dean Rachel and Dean enjoy some one-on-one time during Season 13, episode 4 of “The Bachelorette.”

Group Date No. 1

Alex, Anthony, Jonathan, Adam, Matt, Kenny, Lee, Iggy, Eric, Will and Josiah are selected to join Rachel for a day on the water. They enjoy drinks, dancing and limbo on a luxury yacht. Kenny’s determined to redeem himself after finding himself in a screaming match with Lee the night before.

He wows Rachel with his raps and the other guys join in. Peter finds himself at the center of the circle spitting a rhyme, which takes Rachel and his “Bachelorette” competitors by surprise. Despite the fun atmosphere, there’s some serious masculinity struggles going on amongst the men.

From there they participate in a spelling bee, during which Adam, Alex, Jonathan, Anthony and more wow with their spelling abilities. Kenny steps up, ready to wow Rachel, but fails to correctly spell champagne. Iggy, Eric, Peter, Anthony and Will are eliminated in time, leaving Josiah the winner.

In addition to winning the spelling bee, Josiah charms Rachel with his spelling abilities. He uses spelling bee words to compliment the “Bachelorette” star and wow the crowd. While both his potential wife and the audience are impressed, some of his Season 13 co-stars — specifically Iggy — seem to think he’s “annoying.”

Josiah Josiah beats Will in a group date spelling bee competition during Season 13, episode 4 of “The Bachelorette.”

They gather afterward for a much more relaxed cocktail party. Rachel’s able to enjoy time with her suitors, all of whom are feeling the heat. Iggy seizes the opportunity to call out Josiah, telling Rachel he doesn’t think he’s right for her.

“When he’s around you specifically, he does this thing that covers up his insecurities,” Iggy shares, revealing that he’s “weirdly protective” of her.

The mood during the party changes as Josiah airs his grievances with the group. Iggy comes clean about his conversation with Rachel, which doesn’t sit well with Josiah. Eric, who previously had issues with Iggy talking about others, confronts him about his pot-stirring, suggesting that he’s “part of the problem.”

Lee pulls Rachel aside and tries to sway Rachel from looking at him as “disingenuous.” Rachel tries to get to the bottom of his problems in the house, which he seriously downplays. He suggests that Kenny’s aggression toward him was unwarranted.

Rachel sits down with Kenny to get his side of the story. He’s taken aback, but owns up to his wrongdoing. Still, Kenny maintains that Lee “doesn’t necessarily tell the truth.”

Kenny’s unsettled after their discussion. He’s furious that Lee described him as aggressive and is certain he wasn’t behaving in that way. He returns to the mansion, and the pair have an explosive confrontation.
