Patience is a virtue. 

The Bachelor's Juan Pablo Galavis went too far with one of the remaining 11 ladies on tonight's episode of the ABC hit drama, which lead to an emotional confrontation at the cocktail party.

After spending the night frolicking in the ocean with Clare, the single father regretted his actions, devastating the 32-year-old hairstylist in the process. Did she end up leaving the competition after he said it wouldn't "be nice" for his four-year-old daughter Camila to see what they did? (Ouch, Juan Pabs. Ouch.) 

But that wasn't the only drama to go down during the two-hour episode, which saw three ladies head home sans roses from the Venezuelan bachelor. 

OMG Moment: Of course, it had to be the drama that unfolded between Juan Pablo and Clare. After receiving the rose on a group date with eight other ladies (which wasn't surprising given the fact that Juan Pablo spent most of the date kissing with her, ticking off the others immensely), Clare snuck back to his suite that night (at 4 a.m.!) for a swim in the ocean. She called it "pure bliss in every way." We're pretty sure they didn't play Marco Polo.

Too bad Clare's bliss is cut short when Juan Pablo pulled her aside at the cocktail party to discuss what happened between them in the ocean. And by discuss, we mean he told her he regretted it because he has a daughter. Clare, understandably, is devastated and cried, but pointed out that he was totally "on board" with what happened between them in the ocean. (Team Clare all the way on this one. Juan Pabs did not handle this the right way. At all.)

Most Stereotypical Moment: Every season, contestants bond with the Bachelor during a "life-threatening" date that represents so much more. And in tonight's episode, it was Nikki's turn as she and Juan Pabs spelunked into a cave. Heck, she even pointed out the obvious metaphor: "This is a lot like falling in love because you're trusting the other person and you have very little control." 

Frontrunners: Though she left a bit of a bad taste in our mouth after last week's episode, Nikki the nurse totally weaseled her way back into our good graces tonight, winning points during her heartfelt talk about her work helping sick children. Plus, any girl that jokes about pooping her pants is alright in our book. And while Chelsie didn't interact with the Bach a lot in this episode (Ahem, Clare!), we are still utterly charmed by her and her easygoing attitude. (Renee? Totally going to get friend-zoned by JP soon, right?!)

Eliminated Ladies: Juan Pabs surprised the 11 remaining ladies when he revealed that three women would be left heartbroken and crying in front of ABC's cameras at the end of the cocktail party. Rough twist, Danielle, Kelly and Alli!

Line of the Night: Clare's toast at the cocktail party: "Cheers to finding love, being loved and making love." Well, if there was any doubt that she and Juan Pablo went all the way before...Oh, and this gem from Sharleen cannot be ignored. "I need to know that he sees me as a panda in a room full of brown bears." Huh?!
