The Bachelor episode 4: Twitter responds with. . . decency?

THE BACHELOR - What does a pageant star who calls herself the "hot-mess express," a confident Nigerian beauty with a loud-and-proud personality,; a deceptively bubbly spitfire who is hiding a dark family secret, a California beach blonde who has a secret that ironically may make her the BachelorÕs perfect match, and a lovable phlebotomist all have in common? TheyÕre all on the hunt for love with Colton Underwood when the 23rd edition of ABCÕs hit romance reality series "The Bachelor" premieres with a live, three-hour special on MONDAY, JAN. 7 (8:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

The masses have taken to Twitter once more to react to The Bachelor episode 4. Here are some of the best tweets we saw last night.

Forget the most dramatic episode ever, last night’s episode of The Bachelor proved to be the most important. It was a night full of bombshells, covering everything from Tayshia’s divorce to Demi’s mother’s prison release to, most importantly, Caelynn’s brutally raw and honest account of her sexual assault.

The world gives The Bachelor a lot of crap for being junk TV, but last night proved there are still worthy stories for the series to tell. Don’t call it a comeback!

So how did Twitter react? Let’s start with the funny stuff.

Naturally, there was plenty of commentary on the Demi/Courtney feud.

However, the jabs didn’t last through the whole night. Even Twitter knew to cool down when Caelynn took the stage to tell her story. The result? We got some of the most genuinely moving online moments I’ve personally ever witnessed. So maybe Twitter isn’t just a dumpster fire??

Ok, so Evan Bass was funny as usual. But the point is clear: Caelynn affected people.

A few knowledgeable viewers pointed out this pertinent fact:

Most importantly, here’s the final word from the inspiration herself:

Next. Jade and Tanner Tolbert announce baby #2. dark

Until next week, Bachelor Nation. I know that the unity and kindness won’t last, but it felt pretty great this week.
