It’s a big day for Hannah, after needing air and falling down, she is finally on her way to give out her final rose. Hannah is excited today with how her future is going to look, but she knows that she is going to break someone’s heart. Both men have pieces of her heart and she doesn’t know how she is going to tell one of them that he is not enough. The man that she has to end things with today is not going to expect it.
Tyler is up first, he is so excited and believes his love with Hannah is forever. Tyler hugs Hannah. She holds his hands and tells him it so crazy that they are there. Tyler tells her that from the moment he met, she captivated his soul and he has grown so much in love with her. Tyler goes on and on professing his love for her. Hannah interrupts him, she tells him that she is so lucky to be loved by him. You can tell that Tyler is feeling the rejection that is coming. She says her life with him would be amazing and she wasn’t lying when she said that she was falling in love with him but she loves someone else. Hannah is crying, he says it hurts, but he is her biggest fan and wishes her nothing but success. They hug, he is fighting back the tears, he never saw this coming and is completely blindsided. At the van, he gives her one last hug. Tyler looks so lost, he says he thought this was it and starts crying. He says it feels like a million punches to the upper gut; it hurts.
Hannah has waited her whole life to have her happy ending and she is hoping that Jed is it. Meanwhile, Jed is on the way there and he is excited to ask Hannah to be his wife. Jed arrives with his guitar and a ring. He walks right up to her and kisses her, tells her that she looks beautiful. He says that he never thought he could fall in love this fast with someone. He picks up his guitar and sings her a song. She says she doesn’t have a song, but she would like to say something.
She always prayed for her future husband, she never who it was, but wondered what their lives were like. She always wondered why God made her struggle and have the heartbreaks she has had. But, it leads her to this moment, to him, and she has been praying for this moment forever, it was to be with him and she loves him so much. He tells her that he has lived 25 years without her and doesn’t want to live anymore without her; he gets down on one knee and asks her to marry him. She says yes. Hannah gives Jed the final rose.
Jed and Hannah are still in Crete, they make a video together. We see lots of images of the happy couple. Hannah admits that they have had some really great times. Hannah was so happy because she thought she would have this person who she could spend the rest of her life with, who is sincere and honest, but that was not the case. The night after they were engaged, Jed told her that he was in a relationship before he came on the show.
Then she read a People magazine story and it was a different story that he told her; apparently, he didn’t end that relationship before coming on the show and muddied the waters of what she thought she was getting in him. She doesn’t know if Jed understands the depth of how this makes her feel. In fact, she doesn’t know how she feels about him now. Jed is on his way to meet her now, she has questions and doesn’t know how it is going to go – but this is a really important conversation.
They hug, he tells her that he misses her. She asks him why he didn’t tell her the truth. He says there are two very different views of what happened. In October, when he met her, he was very single and didn’t feel like it was an exclusive thing and never felt like a relationship. He spent the most time with her, they spent some outings together, slept together and took a trip together, stayed in the same cabin. He says he wasn’t dating her, he didn’t put a label on it, and he was dating other women.
He brought her to his parents. She threw him a surprise birthday party, and her parents got him a vacation to the Bahamas, the date is on her birthday. After his birthday, a few weeks go by and they go on the trip. He told her about being offered the show, she was sad, but she understood. He said he was going on the show because it was a music thing, in fact, he told her he highly doubted that he would get into a relationship. She was upset that he was leaving, he had been drinking and he told her that he loved her, it didn’t feel right, but he did it because he was leaving. Hannah says it was selfish to her, selfish to the girl. Jed says he leaves and after he landed in LA, it was like a goodbye to her.
Hannah saw the text the day he left, he told the girl in a text that he loves her. Hannah says it is not about the words, he slept with the girl the night before he left. Hannah tells him that everything he does affects her. Hannah knows what she wants, she has been doing all the right things and tells him it sucks to now find this out, she feels betrayed and can’t believe that he would be ready to be engaged. She goes on to say that a lot of seems to be a career and get noticed. Hannah leaves the house, she says she is going to be ill. He asks her what does he have to do to fix this. Hannah says that she needs him 100% honesty.
Jed still maintains that he didn’t feel he had a girlfriend. The reason he held back details is that he was afraid that she would walk away from him and he is so not proud of it. She also mentions when she overheard him say that he won The Bachelorette, he should have said he was engaged to the woman he loves. Hannah says that nothing is as you plan it, but she feels that this experience has been taken away from her. He got to see all of her, she has not seen all of him. He says he is sorry, and he still wants to be with her. She points to her ring and says it doesn’t mean the same thing, it’s not what she said yes to. Hannah takes off the ring.
Its time to find out if Jed and Hannah are still together. Hannah comes out on stage, she is noticeably not wearing her engagement ring. Hannah says she can’t believe this is the way the conversation is going, she is fighting back the tears. She says she found out after the day they got engaged, he mentioned that there was a girl he was hanging out with, but he was dating her. She found. Hannah reveals that she is not with Jed anymore, the engagement is over, that is not what she said yes to.
Chris calls Jed on to the stage and the audience barely claps. Chris gives Jed the first chance to speak. He says from the bottom of his heart, he is sorry. He says he fully sees that he was not the best that he could be and it ruined what they had, a place where he never expected to fall in love with. He apologizes to her family, friends, Bachelor nation, his family and his friends. When he was reached to go on the show he never thought he would meet the person he would want to spend the rest of his life with. Jed says he didn’t tell her because he was afraid that he would lose her. He felt he had closure on his end, but didn’t see that the girl he was dating didn’t have it.
Hannah says she appreciates his apology and know it is hard for him. She did fall in love with him, and she knows that person inside there and hopes that from this, he will be honest and learn and grow, be the man she knows he can be for whomever he is within his future.
Chris goes back to Jed and asks how he feels about Hannah now. He says the same that he did when he got down on one knee. He says he wishes he could change the past, but he can’t and his feelings don’t change towards her. Hannah is so strong, any other women would be crying. She says she is not trying to punish him, but her feelings have changed. When that trust was broken, her feelings were broke with that and she doesn’t love him like that anymore. It is not something to talk about, she is sad, she knows he hurt her but she is not trying to hurt him right now. She says she just wants to be confident with her forever. Jed says he is sorry her feelings have changed, she deserved the world and to be happy. He says he hopes that she has a super happy life and she continues to be the amazing woman he knows that she is.
Chris says thank you to Jed for coming on the show.
Chris is with Hannah, Jed left the stage. She says she is proud of herself because in the past there wasn’t trust in relationships and she still stuck with them. But she realizes that she doesn’t need a husband, but she would like to have one. Chris tells her that he is incredibly proud of her and he has always been impressed with her.
Chris is going to bring Tyler on stage, she admits her feelings for him have not gone away. Ty.er gives Hannah a huge hug. Chris says he feels like he should just leave. Chris says this is the first time the two have seen each other since Crete, he says she looks amazing. Tyler says that he was looking forward to this day. He tells her that she is so powerful and so strong. Chris asks Tyler how it feels that she picked Jed. He says he was in full support, he thought she was in good hands. Tyler says that he woke up that day and threw up because he was so nervous, he was so happy, like a little kid, to see her and to propose to her.
Chris asks Hannah what is going through her head. She says that Tyler has been so supportive and respectful of her, their journey and afterward. She says their relationship was real, everything she said she meant, it didn’t go away, she has feelings. Chris asks her what those feelings are. She says she is really confident on who she is now. She wants someone to be bold, she is bold. Hannah says that he is an incredible guy and she is a single girl. The audience is cheering. Hannah tells him that maybe they could just go for a drink and hang out, he says that he would love to. Chris asks Hannah if she just asked Tyler for a date.
