Blogging the Bach 24.11 part 2-The Finale

Celsey and I are watching. If we’re lucky, Shawn will join us for a little commentary.

We pick up where we left off last night. All day long I have heard all kinds of speculation about what happens. I also read Reality Steve. By the time this is published, the show will be over. 

We see the live audience and Kelly is there. Is anyone else confused by this? She wasn’t invited to women tell all, but now she is there for After the Final Rose??? What is happening?

I thought there might have been a little more build up, but we jump pretty quickly to the proposal. Chris Harrison has the news we have been wondering about all season. He tells Peter than Hannah Ann might not be coming to the proposal. He almost passes out and one minute later Hannah Ann is on her way. Supposedly they both love each other. (I am still not convinced). Peter proposes. Hannah Ann is shocked but says yes. (I am still not convinced). He probably shouldn’t have proposed, and she probably shouldn’t have said yes.

Peter goes home to California to tell his family. I have so many things to say about his mom-most of which I don’t really know if I should say on the internet. Her face said everything and more. All she and the rest of the family want to know is if he chose Hannah Ann or not. If not, he should run right out the door. Since he did pick Hannah Ann, Barb freaks the freak out. He FaceTimes Hannah Ann, and it was kind of awkward. 

The next thing we see Hannah Ann comes to give Peter a major piece of her mind over and over. I was pretty impressed the first time she called him out, but the more and more she beat the dead horse the more I was ready for her to be done. She gives the ring back, is very mad at Peter, does not let him talk, and leaves. Again. He shouldn’t have proposed, and she shouldn’t have said yes. I never believed it could or would work out for them, and I am not surprised at all that it didn’t last. She is still furious with him at ATFR, and he feels terrible. It was pretty awkward especially as Barb cheered wildly for her.

Peter still has feelings for Madison. Chris Harrison goes to Auburn to update Madison without Peter knowing. She regrets her decision to leave and still loves Peter. She wants to give it another chance so she goes to LA. She surprises Peter. They talk, both admit they still love each other, and decide nothing. 

Chris Harrison shows Peter the video of his visit to Auburn, and Peter smiles for the first time all night. At this point we are reminded we still don’t know how the season will end. Barb rolls her eyes and has a look of hate on her face every time they show her. Madison comes out. They both admit they still love for each other. Peter says he wants to take it one day at a time. Madison doesn’t really say anything, but it seems like she is on the same page. We come back from commercial break, and they are sitting much closer together. 

I am so frustrated with Peter’s parents-especially Barb. I can definitely see why they are concerned, but when Peter asked them to trust him, and they still have  so much dislike for Madi, it just feels yucky. Even though they aren’t in full support of this, it is so embarrassing for Peter to be treated like that by his parents. I would be furious if my parents did that to me. Furthermore I have no idea why Barb had so much air time this season. I really hope something better happens for them now that the season is officially over.

Onto to Clare...

Blogging the Bach 24.11

Who’s watching: Celsey, Amanda, Krista, and Alicia 

Chris Harrison starts us out teasing us of all that is to come. Of all the different season endings we have had over the years, I can’t wait to see how this thing actually ends. 

Hannah Ann has the first date. She seems like she is trying really hard to be in love with Peter and she is trying really hard to be emotional. Peter’s dad calls her a remarkable young lady. Young lady is the perfect description. Peter says there is nothing holding him back with her, but he has the dilemma between the girls. 

Madison walks up like she’s ready to go meet the family. They have a chat about all of the things. For a few minutes, it seems like she is going to leave and not meet the family. She tells him that she was planning to tell him that she loves him the night she ended up leaving the date. Peter has the biggest smile on his face. They meet his family. It is pretty awkward. 
Peter’s mom basically tells him pick Hannah Ann or else... Peter tells his mom to stop being so emotional. She has a meltdown and tells him to bring Hannah Ann home because she is perfect. She also calls him Bud several times and we don’t love it.

Peter has his final date with Madi. It starts out pretty well. They take a helicopter to a secluded place all to themselves. She tells him it is time for her to surrender so that he can find love. He tries to convince her to stay, but she decides it is time to leave. They have too many differences.

His final date with Hannah Ann feels forced. She is so in love with him, and he can’t reciprocate. He appreciates her, and that is about it. The night part seems pretty sure. Peter tells us he is in love with her, but he doesn’t ever tell her that.

The show ends with Chris Harrison telling us once again that no one knows how this is going to end.

Honestly some of the best lines of the night came from Rem.
-I don’t like what you’re making (when he came in for dinner without even knowing what I was cooking)
-I got it myself (after taking an apple off the cutting bored)
-you have strawberries? (to Alicia as he grabbed all of the grapes out of Alicia’s bowl)
There were so many other good quotes. It’s a good thing he is so dang cute, but he’s such a turd.

What do you think is going to happen?

Blogging the Bach 24.10

Who’s watching: Krista left early, but all the rest of the girls are here.

We start out where we left off. Madison is no where to be found. Hannah and Victoria are standing waiting for the rose ceremony..and Madison. Hannah Ann gets the first rose. Madison gets the second (Peter offers her the rose. She says yes. He asks if she is sure. She says yes again and hugs him for a really long time), and Victoria is shocked. Peter tries to say goodbye to Victoria but she doesn’t want to hear it. She leaves without a tear.

We have to wait until next week to find out what the crap happens with this season. Apparently Peter doesn’t even know so next week should be interesting.

We’re about 10 minutes in on Women Tell All and so far there has been so much yelling. Chris Harrison lets them go at it and finally tells MyKenna she gets the last word. She tells Tammy she needs to be nice.

Kelsey and Victoria both come to the hot seat. There’s not a whole lot to say. They admitted their mistakes. Ashely I came out and gave Kelsey a gigantic bottle of champagne and bonds over all of their on screen tears.

Peter comes out, and it is pretty uneventful. Savannah asks Peter if he has any regrets and addresses the criticism that he rewarded the drama. He could have made better choices, but he doesn’t have regrets. It kind of seems like everyone had a PR lesson before the night started and everything has the perfect PC things to say.

The bloopers were funny-probably the best part of the show.

Rachel comes out and talks about online bullying. The things that people say are horrible. I can’t even understand why anyone would waste their time and energy to be so hateful. It is really disappointing and I think it’s good the show drew attention to it. I also appreciated that Alexa said we have to focus on all the love and positivity rather than the hate and negativity. 

And now we wait to see how this dang season ends...
