There was high drama on Tuesday night’s Bachelor season finale.
But not of the typical kind.
We didn’t head into this concluding episode wondering which remaining suitor Colton Underwood would select to be his hopeful wife…
… we headed into it wondering whether Cassie Randolph would be willing to open her heart to the man she had already rejected.
Seriously: Underwood dumped Tayshia and Hannah on part one of the finale, breaking the latter’s heart especially hard because he just wasn’t sure if he could fall for these women.
But he knew he had fallen already for Cassie.
So Colton cut ties with the two finalists and knocked on Cassie’s hotel room door to conclude the opening half of this finale, praying for a positive response.
Did he receive one?
The Bachelor Season Finale, Part 1: What Did Colton Do?!?
Cassie acted all surprised to see Colton, as if this hadn’t been planned out and scripted well ahead of time.
He explained to her that she was the only suitor left because he had thrown romantic caution to the wind and send Tayshia and Hannah packing.
It was her, it had always been here and they didn’t even have to get engaged or married any time or anything at all. They could just take their relationship “day by day.”
Cassie confessed that Colton seeing other women throughout the show did intimidate her — and she still wasn’t certain of her feelings.
But, yeah, sure, whatever: Let’s do this!
The two then kissed and Colton even shared his fence-jump story with her, which Cassie found hilarious for some reason.
From there, Colton invited Cassie to continue the journey with him by traveling to Spain to meet his family and said she was all for trying to figure things out with Underwood.
“I’m not telling you that I love you, I want to show you and I want you to see exactly why and how much I’m willing to give up and give to us,” Colton chose his possible soulmate.
Finally, to answer the question on everyone’s minds… we don’t know.
The couple did enter the Fantasy Suite on their final evening abroad together, but Colton refused to divulged what may or may not have down down in there.
“It’s something that we’re going to keep to ourselves,” he later told Chris Harrison.
“I’ll take that as a yes,” Harrison replied.
Regardless of whether or not Colton got a physical happy ending, however, he does appear to have gotten an emotional one with Cassie.
“We’re in love,” Underwood emphatically said about their relationship when making his first public appearance on the after-show stage with Randolph on Tuesday.
Sitting by his side, she jumped in to say:
“We’re super in love.”
So there you have it.
Do you think these two will make it down the aisle? Do you think they made it (wink, wink!) in bed?
Colton insinuated the latter via the above Instagram photo and caption to close his night on Tuesday:
Whatever I write will never fully articulate the feelings I have for you. You are the most incredible person whom I have ever met, you have the kindest soul and the sweetest heart.
You changed my life for the better and made this year the best year of my life. I can’t wait for our adventures ahead…
I have my best friend. I have my girlfriend. I have my future fiancé. I have my future wife. But most importantly I have you. Let’s do this thing they call life… together… forever.
I love you.
