The Bachelorette Season 19: What to expect from the finale

Welcome to the coveted finale week of The Bachelorette Season 19! There’s been quite the fair share of ups and downs, tears, laughter, wonderful romances, breakups, and just about anything else you can think of, including love spells, jumping off of cliffs and platforms, and even a cheese-holding strong-man contest.

We are finally here…finale night. But what can we expect? What will go down in the finale, and how will the precious moments of Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia‘s journey all add up to now? Well…let’s find out!

Tune into The Bachelorette this Tuesday on ABC!

Who will Gabby and Rachel both pick on The Bachelorette Season 19?

Where did the previous week/episode of The Bachelorette Season 19 leave off?

As we all saw during last week’s super dramatic episode, two of Gabby’s three remaining men decided they weren’t ready for the next steps in their journey together. That left Gabby with only one man remaining…Erich! After many moments of keeping up waiting, Gabby finally let him know that he was the only one left, professing her love and truest feelings for him.

As far as Rachel goes from last week, we were left off with Zach wanting to so desperately pull her aside to talk to her about how he felt their overnight date went. Rachel essentially was rubbing Zach the wrong way when he was questioned on his age and readiness to marry (he is only a few months younger than Rachel, my God). He also mentioned to us how he felt Rachel was a completely different person when the camera was off and just overall felt super uneasy about it all.

When will the finale night episodes air, and how can you watch them?

In true Bachelor/Bachelorette fashion, the finale will take two weeks to finish up during their two-part finale night event. The first part will air on September 13, 2022, at 8:00 PM EST. The second part, set to wrap up the finale and season as a whole, is set to air on September 20, 2022, at 7:00 PM CST.

While you can watch it on ABC live on finale night, the dramatic conclusion to one of the most dramatic seasons can also be streamed on other sources, like DirecTV, Fubo, and Hulu.

What can we expect from Rachel on finale night?

As far as previews have gone from last week’s episode, it seems as if a lot between Rachel and Tino’s relationship will be questioned; there seems to be trouble in paradise from a seemingly smooth start as it was. She says to Tino, we can only assume, “I want an answer for why you did what you did.” Could that mean something that happened during their overnight date when we couldn’t see what was going on? Did he lie to her about something? Does his family hate her? What else could she possibly be trying to find wrong with literally all of her men?

What can we expect from Gabby on finale night?

As we saw from last week’s previews for finale night, although Gabby professed her love for her only suitor left, Erich, it doesn’t seem that he is ready for an engagement at the end of this. He told her this, but also the fact that he still wanted to date her. According to the previews, this makes Gabby seemingly want to leave, go home, and just forget all of this.

We have to wait until tonight (not too long) to start to finish all of this drama!

What are your thoughts on last week and these upcoming weeks of drama? Don’t forget to tune in to the final two The Bachelorette Season 19 episodes this week, September 13, and next week, September 20, at 8/7c!
