Colton fights to win Cassie back during part two of ‘The Bachelor’ finale on March 12, and you can follow along with everything that goes down in our live blog right here!
The March 12 finale of The Bachelor picks up with Colton Underwood arriving at Cassie Randolph’s hotel room to try and get her back. In last night’s episode, he took a big risk by ending things with his other two finalists, Tayshia Adams and Hannah Godwin, and turned all his energy toward getting back together with Cassie. Cassie agrees to chat with Colton, but she’s noticeably nervous. Cassie is shocked when Colton tells her he sent Tayshia and Hannah home, but he lets her know that they weren’t the women he wanted to be with, even if they were willing to give him everything he wanted.
Colton reassures Cassie that he doesn’t need an engagement if she takes him back. “I’m sitting here asking for a second chance and to take it day by day and figure it out,” he tells her. She explains that she’s worried he’ll resent her if he gives up the chance at an engagement just to be with her, but he’s not having it. “In my opinion, that’s part of a relationship — compromise and sacrifice,” he says. “Those are the things you do when you love somebody.” He also tells Cassie that he doesn’t want to just tell her he loves her, he wants to show her.
His words are exactly what she needs to here, and she proves it to him with a kiss. She agrees to take it day by day with Colton, and he invites her to Spain to meet his family. Before Cassie arrives, Colton fills his family in on what’s been going down. He admits that, at this point, he doesn’t think Cassie is in love with him, but he’s hoping that she’s able to gain some clarity after meeting everyone.
Colton’s parents put him and Cassie on the spot immediately and ask if they consider themselves to be boyfriend and girlfriend. They both admit that they haven’t gotten as far as defining things, and Cassie explains to them that she knows Colton wants a commitment, and the reason she left him is because she wasn’t sure she could give him that. She also reveals that this whole day is super hard for her because she knows she isn’t living up to the expectations that Colton’s parents had when they came to meet his final women.
Colton’s mom, Donna, expresses her concerns to him about Cassie not being on the same page, but he assures her that Cassie is different than anyone he’s ever been with. “She’s the first thing I think about when I wake up and the last thing I think about before I go to bed,” he gushes. Still, Donna is worried that those feelings won’t be reciprocated. Meanwhile, Cassie chats with Colton’s dad, Scott, and explains that she’s hoping this time with Colton in Spain will give her the clarity she needs to know she’s meant to be with Colton. Then, Cassie talks to Donna, she confirms that Colton is a step ahead of her in their relationship, but that’s just because she wants to make sure she’s completely confident that she can be “all in” before she decides to be with him.
Now, it’s time for Colton and Cassie to have one last date together. He asks her what scares her about being with him, and she opens up about previous relationships she’s been in that have been “controlling” and “stifling.” She admits that her past might be why she’s so hesitant to get into a committed relationship now. He assures her that he wants their relationship to be all about compromise — they’ll be able to have their time separately, but always come together at the end of the day. At this point, Cassie starts opening up to the idea of being with Colton more and more.
Over dinner, Cassie tells Colton that she’s starting to feel more confident, and lets him know that she’s ready to be “all in” with him once this is all over. They get the option to finally share a Fantasy Suite together if they want to forego their individual rooms. Cassie agrees to do so, and they spend the night together.
The next morning, Colton is super cryptic about whether or not he lost his virginity to Cassie. He simply states that they “had a great night” and did “what was best for [their] relationship.” He says that “a man never kisses and tells,” so he decides not to elaborate.
Finally, it’s time for Cassie and Colton to appear on After The Final Rose for their first time in public together. They confirm they’re still together and “super in love.” Cassie reveals that they’ve spoken about getting engaged, but are still enjoying dating at the moment. Colton has also moved to Los Angeles to be closer to Cassie, but since they’re going to be spending the next year traveling, they’re not moving in together just yet. However, they’re clearly beyond giddy to be able to go public with their romance, and Colton officially gives Cassie his final rose.
