Rodney Mathews begins the October 31 episode of Bachelor in Paradise in a good place with Eliza Isichei. “I’m really happy with where we are,” Rodney said. “She doesn’t want anyone else, I don’t want anyone else. Eliza is the most beautiful woman here, I’m so obsessed. Eliza and I have had conversations about the future and in our minds we are thinking about post-Paradise. I’m not really worried about who comes down those stairs. I know exactly what Eliza and I have. I’m not the least bit worried.”

Well, maybe Rodney should been worried because Justin Glaze came back to the beach JUST to shoot his shot with Eliza. Justin was eliminated from the show after failing to receive a rose during week two, but when he heard Eliza had arrived, he found his way back to the beach. Justin returned with a date card and fixed his eyes on Eliza. He immediately pulled her aside and expressed that he only came back for her. Eliza was blushing and flattered. “I didn’t think I could see anyone else coming down those stairs that I would be interested enough to talk to,” she admitted. “But then you came. I really didn’t expect that.”

Justin asked Eliza on the date and she said yes. Before they left, however, she knew she had to have a conversation with Rodney. While she admittedly loved having the attention of two different guys, she wanted Rodney to fight for the connection they had developed. “I want him to say: ‘You’re mine, don’t go’,” Eliza revealed. “That’s what I want him to tell me.”

Unfortunately, the conversation did not go the way Eliza wanted. When she asked Rodney how he felt about her going on a date, he tried to be supportive. “I don’t want you to feel pressured if you think you’re breaking my heart or hurting me or anything like that,” Rodney explained. “I just want you to be okay and happy. I’m not going anywhere. I think [if you go] that’s what’s best. If you go and get clarity or you get confirmation or you miss me, then I’m clearly the one.”

However, that was not what Eliza wanted to hear. Rodney insisted that he didn’t WANT Eliza to go, but told her he was pushing her so she could get clarity that he was the one for her. Eliza told Rodney that she wanted someone who was more upfront about his feelings, and he explained that he was just trying to understand the situation. “I’m not going to fight with him about it,” Eliza said in a confession. “I’m not going to fight that someone’s like, ‘I want you.’ We don’t do that. If that’s how you really feel about me pursuing another person, then you don’t feel that strongly about me. I literally said, ‘Tell me not to go,’ and he told me to go. So now I’m going to go and that’s it.”

Eliza and Justin went on a dinner date and she told him that she was excited by how sure he was of her when he came to the beach. “That’s what I’m looking for – someone who’s intentional, someone who’s straightforward and knows what they want and goes for it,” Eliza explained. “I think that’s why when you came down today I was just pleasantly surprised without hesitation because I think that’s something I’ve been missing.” They both opened up about how serious they are about finding someone to be with, but also about not settling. By the end of the date, Eliza was in a much better place.

“Even though today started very, very rocky, and I was sad, honestly, I think telling myself it’s okay to come and do it and see what else is out there made me realize that maybe there’s a better fit for me and what I need a partner,” she admitted. Eliza and Justin broke up while watching fireworks. Meanwhile, back on the beach, Rodney was missing Eliza, who he admittedly said he could see as his potential wife. “I know I messed up earlier, but I really think we can get through this,” he said. “I want to be with her. I want to leave here with her. That’s all I want. I know that I can make her happy. If she comes back tonight and it’s Justin for her, then it will definitely break my heart. I just hope that she understands where my heart is and that I will do everything for her.”
