On last Monday's intense episode of The Bachelor, Colton Underwood walked away and seemed to quit the show.
He didn't really, of course, but ABC did conclude the installment by fading to black before even airing a rose ceremony, telling fans the storyline would "be continued" this week.
Those were the circumstances under which we turned in to The Bachelor yesterday, curious about Colton and where his mind is at these days.
But we ended this episode with thoughts about two suitors instead, following their historic decision to truly quit the show.
These choices have been teased in our ongoing The Bachelor spoilers section, but you need to scroll down to see how they actually played out...
1. We Started This Week with a Rose Ceremony
Gotta make up for not showing it last week, right? Almost right off the bat, Onyeka is sent packing after her explosive fight with Nicole in Miami.
2. What About Nicole?
She got the early boot, too, of course.
3. We Move to the Group Date...
The women competed in martial arts prior to going to a party, at which Sydney
confronted Colton about giving other women more opportunities than her.
4. Why No One-on-One Date?
Colton had no answer for Sydney. It's not like he even picks who is rewarded with these outings. "I feel like ever since someone's like, 'Hey, you're The Bachelor,' it's a lot of pressure. Everybody expects me to have everything figured out, and I don't. I don't have it figured out," Colton told Sydney during this emotional chat. "I'm not naive to the fact that there's other people here and I know every relationship is so different."
5. Here's the Thing, Though
"My fear is that with the choices that you've been making, you are taking a lot of the easier choices with the people that you are pursuing. If that's what you're looking for, great," Sydney told Colton candidly.
6. More from Sydney
"I'm kind of at a crossroads because I want something real and I want something magical and I want everything that you're looking for."
