If you were playing a Bachelorette drinking game with the words "Bentley," "closure" and "dot dot dot" ... you aren't reading this right now. You are likely in a hospital bed recovering from alcohol poisoning and having your stomach pumped.

The fact that Bentley Williams was even allowed to return to the show after the stunt he pulled several episodes ago is a joke, but finally - finally - Ashley Hebert saw the jackass for what he is and he hit the road for good Monday.

That's not to say there wasn't collateral damage left in Bentley's wake. Some of the other guys, understandably, were far from pleased by his return.

The Bachelorette spoilers we've compiled include who makes it to hometown dates, and all the way to the end this season, so read at your own risk.

Right now, let's break down last night's episode, the sixth of the season, THG style. Continue on for our patented +/- Bachelorette recap ...

Competing for Brad Womack's attention on The Bachelor, Ashley Hebert turned to food to cope with the stress. Soon enough, she'd packed on 10 pounds.

For a petite, 5'2" girl, that's a fair amount.

Fortunately, Ashley changed her diet and exercise habits to lose the weight in time for her upcoming wedding to her dreamy mystery fiance (follow this link for The Bachelorette spoilers if you care to know who that is).

Ashley Hebert Tortured!

Those 10 pounds weren't the extent of Ashley's self-esteem battle.

Despite the misleading cover above (she was called those things as part of a comedy roast, after all), there's no question she has legitimate insecurities.

The way Bentley Williams messed with her, how could she not?

Fortunately, with the show behind her and a bright future ahead, things are looking up. Ashley Hebert is engaged, and mentally and physically, just so healthy!

“It’s a new, enlightened me. I’m happy. I’m in such a great place right now!” she says of her new body and her new life with the final rose winner.

Ashley Hebert is in for one heck of a shock next week. Viewers already know what's in store, and have reached for something to vomit into accordingly.

Bentley Williams makes a long-dreaded return to The Bachelorette in order for Ashley to seek "closure." The other guys? Far from pleased about this.

How long will Bentley stick around? Who will receive roses at the end of this episode, making it one step closer to those coveted hometown dates?

Click here for The Bachelorette spoilers if you care to know the answers to those questions. But clearly, the drama will be running high on Monday.

Here's the preview for next week (after last night's ceremony):

Ashley Hebert's global quest for love and adventure continued on The Bachelorette last night. One concussion and three eliminations later, she's onto the next leg ... but the long shadow cast by a former contestant remains.

Girl still can't quit Bentley Williams.

We're starting to wonder how staged this is. It's now been two whole episodes since he left. Is she really still hung up on him, or is the show baiting her?

  • Ashley Hebert Boxing
  • Bachelorette Boxing

Never has a group date gotten this violent.

Maybe you just want what you can't have, and the uncertainty of that dot dot dot garbage made it impossible for her to just move on. Who knows.

In any case, we'll find out next week when the slime returns. This week, it was all about the men fighting for Ashley's love. In the literal sense.

The Bachelorette spoilers we've compiled hint at what happens with Bentley (sigh) as well as the final men standing, so read at your own risk.

Right now, let's break down last night's episode, the fifth of the season, THG style. Continue on for our patented +/- Bachelorette recap ...

The Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert is happily engaged, according to new reports.

Who's the lucky guy? That you'll have to wait 'til August 1 to find out ... or read The Bachelorette spoilers we've posted that have been 100 percent true so far.

In any case, it's good to hear the happy news, seeing as Ashley Hebert nearly lost hope after Bentley Williams stabbed her in the heart. Figuratively that is.

  • Rose-Bearer
  • Ashley H. Engaged!

This week's Life & Style cover story says that Ashley did shake off Bentley's betrayal eventually, and is engaged to the man she gave her final rose to.

On a secluded Fiji island May 13, the last remaining hopeful got down on one knee and proposed with a stunning diamond ring (Neil Lane, obvi).

"Ashley's elated," an insider reveals to the celebrity gossip publication. "She's engaged to the winner and is now wearing her engagement ring."

"I'm happy with the way things turned out for me," Ashley says.

We haven't seen the last of Bentley Williams on The Bachelorette.

The previews at the end of last night's rose ceremony strongly imply he will be back next week. However, all The Bachelorette spoilers we've read and compiled so far indicate that he returns in episode six - the week after next.

Here's the final segment of Monday's episode, preview included:

Our theory is that Ashley Hebert's talk with Chris Harrison and knocking on Bentley's door do take place next week, but the parasite himself doesn't actually show his manipulative face until the following week, stringing viewers along.

Regardless, Ashley is clearly hung up on the loser (she talked about Bentley non-stop on last night's episode) and is just going to get hurt again, as if Bentley hadn't done enough. She was just starting to get over his "shocking" exit too.

So sad for the girl. So great for the producers.

He wasn't even on the show last night, but Bentley Williams still loomed large over The Bachelorette, as Ashley Hebert tried to move on from his sudden exit.

Two dozen references to that shady character aside, the show gave us a boilerplate, run-of-the-mill episode with Ashley continuing her quest for love.

Thailand was the scene of three fun dates, a lot of kissing, a charitable endeavor, the man-claws coming out, and some seriously bad weather.

Workin' Hard in Phuket!

 Not your typical group date, but certainly a rewarding one.

Save for a minor rule change by Ashley Hebert, there weren't too many surprises, as we're seen episodes like this many times and the favorites remain.

Will Ashley truly move on from Bentley and trust someone else? Eventually, you have to think so ... he doesn't win, after all. But she's not there yet.

The Bachelorette spoilers we've compiled offer hints on when Bentley returns (groan) as well as the final rose hopefuls, so check those out if you like.

J.P. Rosenbaum really stepped up to the plate Monday.

In the aftermath of Ashley Hebert being crushed by Bentley Williams emotionally, J.P. was there to pick up the pieces - and by being a rock she could lean on (and wear pajamas in front of), he emerged as a top contender.

How long will J.P. last this season? We'll point you to The Bachelorette spoilers page on THG to answer that if you want to know, but we will say this now: He's not going home anytime soon, and it's easy to see why.

  • Hebert

A 34-year-old construction manager from Long Island, J.P. Rosenbaum was handed a chance to shine with a laid-back date after the Bentley debacle.

He never could have guessed what had just taken place when he showed up, flowers in his hand, but not for a second did he appear disappointed.

Instead, he rose (pun intended!) to the occasion.

“I know that Bentley going home couldn’t be easy for her - I do want to know that she’s OK,” J.P. said Monday just before he met Ashley Hebert.

Bentley Williams became  The Bachelorette's most notorious villain this week. The scary part? He's not even done messing with Ashley Hebert.

After wooing Ashley for three weeks, Bentley repeatedly insulted her behind her back, then walked out and left her in tears while he smirked.

If only she could move on, but he left her hanging with that dot dot dot crap. Soon enough, the sweet-talking slime will be back on the show.

Ashley Taking Bentley Back?!

According to Life & Style, Ashley Hebert flew Bentley more than 7,000 miles to exotic Hong Kong for a reunion we will watch unfold in a future episode.

"Ashley wanted a second chance with Bentley, so she begged producers to get him on the phone and get him on a plane out to see her," a source says.

"She couldn't stop thinking about him after he left her."

Upon Ashley's request, producers called Bentley every day for two weeks until he finally agreed to fly to Hong Kong, where the episode was filming.

Yes, it's a reality show - one renowned for its mind games no less - and by going on it, Ashley Hebert opened herself up to scenarios beyond her control.

But still, we've never seen anything quite like this week's episode.

Knowing what they did, should The Bachelorette have pulled the plug on Bentley Williams before he was allowed to stab Ashley in the heart?

Ashley The Bachelorette

There are plenty of people who go on the show for the wrong reasons, and plenty of cases where people are edited in ways that craft a more compelling story.

Bentley Williams was in a class by himself, though.

Over the course of three episodes, he made his antipathy toward Ashley abundantly clear and left no ambiguity about the situations he was discussing.

The burning question is this: Because he was making disparaging comments about Ashley - and revealing his intention to toy with the poor girl - directly to ABC's cameras, should the show have kicked him off right there?
