After Monday night’s episode when Cassie tearfully broke up with the man who proclaimed she was “The One,” he dumped runners-up Hannah G. and Tayshia during Fantasy Suite Week to chase after Cassie, who had already broken up with him once. To console the former football player, show MVP Chris Harrison proclaims, “maybe she’s just not that into you.” Then Colton — like a toddler — insists she does love him too, which will remain a finale highlight.
In the second part of the finale, Colton appeared to win back 23-year-old speech pathology student Cassie with the promise just to date and take things slowly.

While Cassie didn’t seem to assure his parents (or myself for that matter), Colton was lovestruck.
The couple had one final, Fantasy Suite-level date, which is where the taped portion ends. Making their first debut as a couple, Colton and Cassie (as spoilers had predicted) announced they were happily dating — Colton’s bad haircut and all.

While their journey was wrapped up in a tidy bow, it’s now onto another season of The Bachelorette as a new televised love story unfolds. Well, at least for a few months. …
