The Bachelor's Finale Will Be Spread Over Two Nights

It's just too dramatic for one night

Liam Mathews

The Bachelor has something really big in store for the finale.

It was teased during Sunday night's Women Tell Allwith Chris Harrison solemnly swearing that this season's finale will actually be the most dramatic ever and former contestant Caroline ominously and mysteriously telling Arie that she knows what he did, leaving fans flummoxed as to what she was talking about.

We're going to find out soon enough. And whatever it is, it's big enough to necessitate a two-part finale. Arie announced in a video posted on The Bachelor's official Twitter account that the finale will air over two nights, Monday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 6.

There will be a three-hour finale episode at 8/7c on Monday, and then a live two-hour After the Final Rose at 8/7c on Tuesday. In Monday's finale, Arie will make a choice between Lauren and Becca, both of whom he's in love with. According to ET, The episode will contain unedited scenes to convey the raw, real emotion. He'll reunite with them on Tuesday to break down what ABC describes as "the unexpected decision that blindsided both of them," with Chris Harrison moderating. The next Bachelorette will be revealed on Tuesday as well.

If you really want to know what all this hubbub is supposedly about, spoilers are out there. But we're not going to post them here.

We're approaching Bach saturation thanks to two weeks of The Bachelor Winter Games alongside regular episodes of The Bachelor and the two episodes of The Bachelor this week and the two episodes next week. So hopefully the finale delivers some truly jaw-dropping drama to make it worthwhile.

The Bachelor's regular time is Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
