WTF ABC? Have a thought for my mental health.

In happier news, Pudding got the final rose.

That’s right, she’s officially a foster fail and a new member our family.

She also wants to murder me in my sleep because she’s got a little skin infection on her tummy and needs to wear the Cone of Shame.

So last week, Katie had locked herself in the bathroom and demanded a flight home after Greg walked off the show in a flurry of red flags. We open this week in a studio with Kaitlyn and Tayshia and a live audience. Katie joins them.

Katie said that she blamed herself after Greg left and questioned what she could have done to drive him away when he was in love with her.

“I was literally on my knees,” she says, “begging this man to stay and he says it’s not good enough.”

Katie, Greg was toxic AF and the very first second he didn’t get the exact validation he was looking for, he pitched a fit, took his ball, and went home.

You definitely dodged a bullet.

So then we cut back to the day after Greg left and Katie is crying in bed. Blake and Justin are confused as to why Greg left. Kaitlyn tells them that Katie is “emotionally devastated,” but wants to continue the journey.

The first overnight date goes to Blake. They have a water balloon fight but the balloons are filled with paint. Then they sit in a hot tub and she tells Blake how Greg walked off the show and that for a minute it made her want to quit the show.

Then they make out because… IDEK. WTF is this show?

At the dinner they aren’t allowed to eat, Blake expresses concerns that Katie was so crushed by Michael and Greg leaving. He says, “I would never tell you I was falling in love with you and get up and leave.” He tells her that he doesn’t say I love you casually.

Then he recalls when they were playing street hockey and says that’s when he realized he was in love with her. “I love you and I’m really fucking excited about life with you,” he says.

Katie tells Blake she loves him too, and then they open a creepy ass note inviting them to spend the night together in a Fantasy Suite.

The next day Katie and Kaitlyn chat, and Katie tells her that she was satisfied “many times.” Kaitlyn shrieks and giggles. The girlfriends dynamic is so much better than Chris Harrison. Katie says her that her heart officially belongs to Blake.

“But Justin is still here,” Kaitlyn says.

So then we get a montage of Justin getting ready for his date and talking about how excited he is to have alone time with Katie.

Katie meets up with Justin and asks to talk. She tells him that during her overnight with Blake she told him she’s falling in love with him. “And that’s something I can only say to one person,” she says.

Justin says he feels like he didn’t open up enough to her.

After Justin gets in the limo of tears, we cut back to the studio audience where he’s talking with Tayshia and Kaitlyn. He says his heart was “stepped on” and that he doesn’t feel Katie gave him a fair shot.

So in order to prolong this pain, they bring Katie back out. He asks her if Greg and Michael leaving influenced her decision to send him home. She denies that. They also both say that a lot of their time together never made the show.

When we come back from commercial, Blake is meeting Katie’s mom and her aunt…and let me tell you, Katie’s aunt Lindsey is a real trip. First up, she refuses to hug Blake. Then she asks him, “So what made you want to come on this season when you’ve already flunked twice.”

He tells her he came on the show for Katie. “I’m just like her,” he says.

“Meaning what? You, too, have a vibrator?” she replies.

Then she follows up with this gem, “You ultimately mean nothing. Hate to break it to you, but you better be secure as fuck coming into our family. At the end of the day you’re here because we want you here, not because we need you here.”

Click for Aunt Lindsey.

She asks Blake what he plans to do when marriage gets hard. “Katie and I have a thing going on here, and its just promising ourselves that we’ll do anything to make it right and keep it,” he says.

“Yeah that’s not how anything works. Like, I mean, cute, but ultimately that’s not how anything works,” Lindsey says.

Blake looks like his testicles have shriveled up. She also refuses to call him by name, but refers to him as “The Beard.”

I really hope she gives a speech at their wedding.

Blake leaves the meeting feeling “stressed out.”

Later that night they attend an event called The Burning of Zozobra, which looks like some kind of demon mannequin thing. They write down their insecurities and fears and put them into Zozobra to burn.

The next day Blake picks out an engagement ring. Katie and Blake meet at a scenic overlook. He proposes and she accepts. They get on horses that just magically appeared somehow and ride off into the sunset.

So then we’re back in the studio and Kaitlyn and Tayshia interview Greg. He says he doesn’t think Katie completely opened her heart to him. He also says he has no regrets about how he left.

Katie comes out and says that she didn’t think he was ever in it to get engaged. She points out that she constantly validated him and that he was just looking for an excuse to escape because he was never ready for an engagement.

“I filled a hole in your heart but you treated me the way you did? You spoke down to me. You didn’t bother to say goodbye. You said you love me, but I don’t think you know what love is because that’s a time when I needed you the most, and you ran away,” she says.

“I had every clear intention of getting engaged, otherwise I wouldn’t have introduced you to my family,” he says.

Katie accuses him of acting. “I mean, it was pretty good until you fucked it up at the end.”

Kaitlyn asks what she’s referring to, and Katie says she found out Greg wants to be an actor and went to acting school. She also heard from multiple people that he was not the shy guy he pretended to be on the show. She also says he was gaslighting her.

Greg mumbles so more excuses, none of which take any accountability for how he behaved. He says, “I feel like you were playing The Bachelorette role with me instead of just being Katie.”

“I was The Bachelorette,” she reminds him.

They end with a tense, “I wish you nothing but the best.”

Then Blake comes out and asks her, “Are you okay?”

Katie reveals her family doesn’t know they are engaged because she didn’t trust them to keep it a secret.

They talk about how in love they are and that they’re both really happy, and that’s about it.

Did you watch this season? What did you think?
