Its been another incredible season, but it had to come to an end, and it did tonight.

There were four remaining couples at the start. There was Clay and Nicole, Chris and Katie, Demi and Kristian, and finally Hannah and Dylan. Each couple has had time to assess their relationship. They’ve made it this far because they’ve all agreed that were in fact falling in love with each other and wanted develop those feelings however their feelings were tested. They were tested in the beginning by dramatic rivalries and explosive feuds.

They were also tested when it came time to pull the trigger. Hannah and Dylan talked about it and they wanted to take the next step in their relationship. They wanted to wake up next each other. They also wanted to pursue their relationship away from the cameras and so they knew where they were heading. And the same went for Chris and Katie. Those two have a fantasy suite coming up and they talked about taking their relationship further.

The only that didn’t have the conversation was Demi and Katie. The ladies were a couple before the show and so now they were just cementing things. Both of them said they wanted to be together. They wanted to be in a serious and committed relationship, which differed from their easygoing relationship from before. The lesbians hadn’t been serious about what they wanted from the other until they almost lost it all in the chaos of paradise.

Speaking of which, Clay and Nicole were discussing what they wanted from each other and they were coming to two completely different conclusions. Nicole was ready to believe in the fairytale. She wanted to that next step with Clay and he not so much. Clay said he had doubts about the relationship. He also warned Nicole that he didn’t want to take any measures he couldn’t take back and that meant spending the night together.

Clay wanted to wait. He also wanted to slow things down with Nicole while he figure some stuff out, but this offended Nicole. Nicole had been ready and she felt rejection when he turned her down. It must have been humiliating for her. Here she was having feelings for him and he was so scared of the possibility that he practically ran away. Clay had to leave the room because Nicole told him to go spend time with himself elsewhere.

Their last night in paradise was spent apart from each other. Clay and Nicole didn’t each other until the next morning and, having calm down, Nicole wanted to at lest try and fight for him. She told how she felt. She said she knew she had feeling from the moment they first kissed and that she didn’t want to change a single thing about him. Nicole also asked Clay if he loved her and he said he wasn’t there yet.

Clay did say he was starting to fall in love with her. So, that’s something and quite honestly something will always be better than nothing. Even if it wasn’t what Nicole wanted. Nicole wanted to hear “I Love You” back and she didn’t. She also made an agreement with herself that she wasn’t going to waste time on a guy that may or may not care for her, so she walked away from the relationship.

With one down, the rest of the proposals didn’t quite go as planned. Katie woke up the next morning not knowing how Chris felt about her and its why she was such a nervous wreck all the way to the roses. All Katie wanted was some reassurance that he felt the same way she did. She didn’t even seem the type that needed some grand gesture and it’s a good thing too because Chris decided to play it by his gut feeling.

Chris didn’t go to Katie on the beach knowing what he wanted. He said he would see her and let his gut decide. Only his gut later told him to propose. That’s right he proposed! Chris was the type of guy that no one believed would find true love and yet he did. He found love after six seasons on a Bachelor show and he did it with Katie. Katie, who of course, said “yes”. She and Chris were the first couple of the night to end paradise on a high note.

Now, who was next?!? Hannah and Dylan woke up all romantic the next morning and they clearly didn’t have any regrets about the step they had taken. It was also a giant on what the next step was going to be. Dylan went to the beach knowing he was going to propose because it has always been Hannah for him. He came to the show looking for her and he refused to consider anyone else, so Dylan told Hannah that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her and she said “but”.

Hannah told him she cared about him, but then added a “but” to the end of her statement because she said she was burnt in the past. She never really got around to say whether she was better now or not so she had needed a moment to think. She wanted to think about what was best for her and she eventually came to the conclusion that it was Dylan. She loved the way he loved her. She also said “yes” when he did propose.

Next it was up to Demi and Kristian to end paradise. They were the most stable relationship going into tonight and Kristian wanted that ring. She confessed as much and added that she would be disappointed if Demi didn’t propose. They’ve been through so much. Kristian let Demi come to paradise to find herself and after a few weeks Demi had sent for her. They were together now, and Kristian wanted to know if they will be together always.

Fortunately for her, Demi walked to the beach knowing she was going to propose. She had already taken the time to work things out in her own head and she realized that she loved Kristian. She wanted to spend the rest of her life with her. Demi said this the first chance she got and she was thrilled when Kristen said “yes”. They were so happy that they didn’t even take in how historic it was.

They became the first gay couple to get engaged on a Bachelor show. They joined two newly engaged couples at the end and they all got to leave paradise on a happy note. So, it was up to the After the Rose Ceremony to detail what happen next. Chris Harrison went through a variety topics. He talked about the Derek, John Paul Jones, Tayshia love triangle. Where they discussed Derek’s dating habits with his fans on social media because JPJ kept throwing that in his face.

They also discussed the Jordan and Christian fight. Christian wanted Jordan to come over to him and apologize and that was never going to happen. One, Jordan still didn’t like him. Two, he claims to this day that the fight happened because he was acting in self-defense. Jordan even got into another argument with Mike about it because Mike said that it wasn’t self-defense and so Jordan told him they would have words after.

There was also the Dean, Connor, and Caelynn love triangle. It was probably the one that ended the best. Just because everyone wasn’t still bitter by what happened. Caelynn and Dean were still together. Plus, Connor was now dating a wonderful woman. The three of them were all in a great place and it didn’t resemble in the slightest the mess that was known as the “Blake drama”. Blake was brought forward to answer some questions.

Blake would say that he never meant to harm anyone. He had a friendship with Kristina and that’s something they both agreed they had. It wasn’t a relationship, but there was respect and then there wasn’t. Kristina was upset when she saw Blake was keeping things from her. They both’ve talked about it since and they were in a better place. Blake and Caelynn on the other hand were worst off. Blake apparently released text messages from their time together.

He did that because he wanted to show how she was overreacting about their time together. Blake says he didn’t know people would attack her for that and, hell, everyone knew that was a lie. Blake had sent a message to Dean before he did it. He basically said that Caelynn was going to catch heat with what he was going to do and then posted the text messages. People then used those texts to slut-shame Caelynn.

Caelynn was still about it till this day. She wanted an apology from Blake and he only apologized after being pressured into it. However, there was more drama. Everyone wanted to know about Blake and Hannah. The two talked before the show and were hanging out together right before paradise. Blake then pursued Tayshia on the first night. She was interested and she didn’t find out about all the problematic drama until afterwards.

Tayshia felt Hannah should have warned her. Hannah claimed there was nothing for her to say because all they did was talk and Tayshia still calls that shady. Tayshia felt like she wasted her time in believing Blake. She also felt that Hannah should have warned her to stay away and so she wasn’t here for anyone’s excuses. Also, Tayshia later talked about herself. She had spent some time away from John Paul Jones and she realized she made a mistake in breaking up with him.

Before the show could delve into all of that, they brought out a lighter side of Bachelor in Paradise. Some of the couples that were still together after their own seasons had come back and they came with their kids. The kids were super cute. They also ran off sometimes and their presence was refreshing after all the drama. There was later a gender reveal for one of the couples. Which was a boy and it was another cute moment.

The kids brought a lighter atmosphere with them. Everyone got to share in the great news and wish the couples the very best and thankfully Tayshia’s news was great as well. Tayshia regretted letting go of JPJ. She talked to her mom about it and it helped clear her head. She soon jumped on the next flight to Maryland. It was a bold move and Tayshia said she was a bold girl. She went to see him because she wanted to fight for their relationship.

It was great news because JPJ still had feelings for her. He asked her to be his girlfriend right then and there and she couldn’t wait to say “yes”. They were a couple now and he still reads poetry to her. He even read one out to her onstage.

So, with love in the air, it was time to discuss what else happened after Mexico. Katie and Chris got engaged back then and they came back to talk about it now. It turns out things haven’t been that great between them. Katie says communications has been hard and that she was exhausted. She was still engaged, but she also said she put in so much and that she wasn’t getting half of it back. Chris tells other people he loves. He never just tells her or reassure her that he loves her and so the relationship does appear to be on the brink.

Not even Chris knew how bad it was. He came out and it almost appeared to be a shock that she wasn’t wearing her ring. Chris then learned what she’s been saying behind his back. He knew that Katie committed fully and he says he wants to be the same way yet he struggles with expressing himself. Chris does love her. He may not be able to show how much he loves her and so that’s something he needs to work on. And not necessarily in front of a crowd.

Still, Chris got Katie to put her ring back on. They also discussed how she blindsided him tonight and she said she was just telling her truth. Katie said she felt differently after rewatching their season together. Katie believed that she was seeing their problems from then playing out now and he was still caught up in the blindside. He never thought she would say as much as she did. Chris was so angry that he had to take a walk and it didn’t seem like he wanted to come back.

Hannah and Dylan, however, are still together. They had their ups and down in the beginning because Hannah appeared to be attracted to Blake. Only they’ve since moved past that. Hannah and Dylan were firmly together now and they weren’t struggling like Katie and Chris. They also seemed to be stronger after their season. Their time together after Mexico had done them some good and so what about Demi?

Demi and Kristian are still together. They were the first lesbian couple on a Bachelor show and they were the first gay engagement. Tonight, Kristian was the one to switch it up. She was proposed to last time and so this time she proposed to Demi. They both, now, have their own rings. Kristian and Demi also did a shout-out to Derek. Derek was very supportive when he found out about the couple and he helped Demi figure out what she wanted.

There was also news about the next bachelor. The new bachelor is Peter. Peter’s upbringing gave him a strong foundation and it allowed him to believe in love because he now wants what his parents have. Peter wants to get married and have kids, but he knows its going to be hard dating thirty women. Not to say he wasn’t giddy as well. Peter said he used to try and see the women coming in when he was a kid. And to come full circle now was amazing to him.

So, best of luck to this season’s cast and to Peter!

THE END!
