You may be sad about The possibility of her “person” leaving two weeks agoThe Bachelorette star Katie Thurston has moved on.
The end of her season turned rocky with back-to-back self-eliminations of the top contestants Michael A.The widowed father who took care of Katie but struggled to stay away from his young son, and Greg, who got a first impression but reached a breaking point last week when he expressed his love for Katie but didn’t feel validated enough.
Greg’s self-exclusion Katie was so distraught, she begged for a plane ticket back.
“In that moment, I totally blamed myself,” Katie reflected during the season finale, “After the Final Rose.” “You start to wonder about yourself and your worth and have what I felt as straight men I was expecting a vacation. You start to wonder ‘What if?'” “Are you leaving to chase them?”
Even though she struggles to process it all, Katie is committed to attending this week’s finale, where she has two men to choose from: Blake, originally late from last season With whom she has clear chemistry and Justin, who slipped his way to the finish after not making many waves this season other than his unforgettable facial reactions. (Note later on “ATFR” that many of his moments with Katie did not appear on camera.)
Last week’s summary:‘The Bachelorette’ recap: Katie calls Greg a ‘most likely candidate’, but It is not enough for him to survive
DEADLINES: Katie says “I love you” for the first time
The news of Greg’s departure shakes Blake and Justin, who worry it will affect Katie’s final decision.
Blake tells Katie he loves her and vows not to leave after making such an announcement (next time @Greg, my friend).
Katie broke her vow not to drop the L-bomb with more than one contestant remaining, telling Blake that she “(expletive) loves you so much” before spending the night together (don’t worry, just because the last three Katie got a little messy, doesn’t mean the most positive star In The Bachelorette, she doesn’t get her fantasy wings.)
“I was saving it for the person,” Katie told co-host Kaitlyn of her declaration of love. “My heart officially belongs to Blake.”
Sorry. Sorry, Justin.
Who went home without an engagement?
Katie asks Justin to talk, which is never a good sign. She explains that her feelings for Blake are getting stronger and they can’t move forward in their relationship.
“I was looking forward to the day, however I had my night with Blake and at that, I told him I was falling in love with him,” she says. “That’s something I can only say to one person. You’re someone I’d like to explore things with, but given how I feel right now about Blake, knowing I love him, it wouldn’t make sense for us to move forward.”
Justin, hits us with one last memorable shot, parts that only have nice words for Katie: “I just hope you know how special you are and how much you bring to the table. I hope he (Blake) knows what he has in you and that he doesn’t take you for granted.”
Katie hopes Justin will be the “final goodbye” of the season. This leaves one man standing.
Katie is engaged?
Before a theoretical proposal, Blake meets Katie’s family. He’s worried there might even be more Pushing more than usual to be perfect, because he’s the only rider left.
Enter: the fake classic bachelor pump. Just when it looks like we’ve had a smooth sail, it’s time for conflict to emerge. Blake’s aunt won’t give a break about…anything to say, and Blake later reveals his nerves about the “expectations” surrounding the engagement.
“There’s a lot going on in my head right now, but I love Katie,” he says. “There’s no doubt about it. I just hope we’re ready to participate.”
Katie says that night that she thinks Blake is her “soulmate.” But is Blake the one who’s getting cold now? The next morning, while the finalist was picking out his engagement ring, he expressed enough concerns about “forever” with Katie that co-host Tayshia suggested he “let her go.”
He told her the next day, “I can’t give you what I came for.” “Because you deserve so much more.”
Sounds like a breakup, right?
“You deserve the world and I’m excited to support you and be there for you every day to move forward,” concludes Blake, before getting down on one knee. We’ve had it there for a second!
‘After the Final Rose’: Katie re-shoots Greg in a tense encounter
Tension appears immediately in Katie and Greg’s meeting. She joins him on the sofa without even looking.
Watching the show again, Katie realized how much validation she had given Greg, and how quickly he turned on her.
“To do the 180, I feel like you were looking for the perfect escape, because you were never quite ready to participate,” she says. Greg is speechless. Katie on the set: “I don’t think you know what love is, because that’s the time I needed you the most, and you ran away.”
Continuing, she called Greg a liar and accused him of highlighting her while revealing “the outrage I’m watching again and seeing the way you’ve treated me, using me for experience, exposure, and dare I say acting at my expense”. It was good until the end when (expletive) walks away from it.”
Confused? Katie explained that she heard rumors afterward that he was actually a “confident and cocky” guy – very different from the shy Romeo fans who saw him on screen.
Greg apologizes for making her feel this way, citing the “difficult environment” they were in. But he confirms Her talk about roses and contestants when he was talking about love Being the reason he couldn’t do that anymore.
“It felt like you were playing the bachelorette with me instead of just being Katie,” he says. “I just wanted something real, at the end of the day.”
Angered at her ex-husband, Katie concluded that Blake is “exactly who I am supposed to be with.”
