Six roses. Four dudes. Things are getting serious on The Bachelorette.

After the past two weeks saw villains Ryan Bowers and Kalon McMahon dispatched by Emily Maynard, were there any more fireworks in store this evening?

Who succeeded in wooing our beloved single mom from North Carolina, and who failed to make the final cut before next week's coveted hometown dates?

Follow this link for a rundown of The Bachelorette spoilers we know thus far, including the (alleged) final three. Then read on for THG's official +/- recap!

Emily and John

First, Prague is on my bucket list now. Beautiful city. Plus 4.

Our Southern Belle Emily Maynard walks the streets of Prague, sans daughter Ricki, musing about the hometown dates. Hostman Chris Harrison tells the guys this week is important because next week are hometown dates. Jef with one F tells us he's really hoping he gets a hometown date next week. We get it. Hometown dates are important. Minus 3.

Of the six guys, three of them will get a one-on-one date with Emily this week. The first date goes to Arie Luyendyk Jr., probably because Emily wants to kiss him (loudly) a few more times. His jacket has elbow patches. Minus 3.

Emily thinks it's shady that Arie hasn't told her about his relationship with Cassie the producer. His failure to disclose his past relationship with someone in Emily's inner circle is disloyal somehow to her.

Chris decides to set the record straight about the rumors regarding Arie and Cassie and introduces a segment of Cassie interviewing Emily about Arie.

Cassie says it's no big deal, it was a long time ago, blah blah blah. Emily says the fact that they dated is no big deal. It's the fact that nobody told her that they knew each other that's the problem.

The Bachelorette's Sean Lowe gets his first one-on-one date with Emily Maynard this week, and it goes well apparently. The group date? Mmmnotsomuch.

Tonight's episode, taking place in England, features Sean getting to know our girl on a double-decker bus, Buckingham Palace and the Tower Of London.

Not bad for a first date. But it's their personalities that really made it work.

"It was the first opportunity I had to spend the entire day with her and I'm not ashamed to say it was one of the best days of my life," Lowe said.

"That was the day that I first knew I had really strong feelings for her and the first time I pictured myself being with her in the future."

Lowe believes they hit it off because of shared values: "I let her know [that] from the very beginning, and she could tell I was being genuine."

"My priorities in life are faith and family, and I believe those are the top two for Emily, as well. Ultimately, I just want to live a simple life surrounded by loved ones, raising a family and loving my wife forever."

How far will Lowe make it? The Bachelorette spoilers we've posted offer some clues in that department, but he seems like a serious contender.

As for the guy who refers to Emily's daughter Ricki as "baggage" tonight? Prepare for some fireworks, says Lowe of the much-anticipated fight.
