I'm still Team Kate while recognizing she's neither a one-dimensional character nor faultless. I enjoy her. Most of the others are just so vile. Tanner and Ashton whining about being held accountable for their actions (without actually using those words because that would admit knowing they're fuck-ups)--cue Smashton thinking that just saying he's not responsible for his actions means he magically isn't, and any Tannerisms at all with the exception of "Jiminy crickets"--and the whole bro code where they desperately think they have the right to talk out of turn and it's all Rhylee's fault for bringing it back to the person they shouldn't have been talking about in the first place. Arrgh! I forget sometimes how young these people supposedly are, yet they're on a reality show which means they've been exposed to media and, you know, learning opportunities...
Simone has trouble articulating what she's really feeling and thinking and she ends up falsely portraying herself and her needs. It may take the season ending for her to disentangle herself from Tanner. Or to learn second stewing.
Kevin continues to be vile and getting support for it, and WTF Brian??
Courtney...well, she didn't overtly support her boss, which is interesting, but was right to call out Brian even in her mild way. Brian, you don't necessarily get unconditional support for being an ass even if you think you're being righteous.
Looks like Ashton was just waiting for this opportunity to rain his beady-eyed hellfire and brimstone on Kate while saving enough energy to keep Rhylee an outsider. Gotta keep them wimmen in their place!
