Between an awkward live ultrasound, a stage-crashing Canadian and a rehashing of this summer's racism scandal, The Bachelorette: Men Tell All episode had it all.
The quasi-reunion show featured so many twists that one of the most dramatic segments was buried in the show’s credits and almost overlooked.
Usually, the credit roll slot features some quality bloopers from that week. Fun stuff, to be sure, but nothing impactful. Not the case at all last night.
Instead, we saw host Chris Harrison enter Andi Dorfman's dressing room (or sitting area, or something) to present her with note from one of her final two.
His tone was serious, as was the look on Dorfman's face.
It's hard to glean much from the brief clip, but this didn't look like the glowing Andi we saw last night, but rather a conflicted, emotionally drained Andi.
“Between you and I, you should read it,” Chris said, handing a folded-up piece of notebook paper to Bachelorette Andi, who looked on with grave concern.
You don't need The Bachelorette spoilers to tell you that this didn't necessarily take place during the Men Tell All special, despite it being packaged that way.
Andi’s wearing a different dress than she did on Monday’s show. In fact, it looks a lot like the one she's wearing in the new season finale promo (below).
This would imply the note was delivered before the proposal ...
The timeline is the real key here. Is it possible that the Andi-Chris note exchange did take place before or after an outfit change at the Men Tell All special?
Obviously, but it's not a given is our point.
So what's in it? Here are some theories:
- Assuming this was presented after the finale, the Season 10 runner-up is begging Andi to pull a Jason Mesnick and change her mind.
- Assuming the note was given to her prior to her final decision, it could the end of Nick's book, a fairy tale which he notably left blank.
- Or, rather than an illustration of Prince Nick getting down on one knee, perhaps Josh is reassuring her for the 20th time that he loves her.
- It's something regarding the lie detector test results, which would be beyond lame but not out of the question for the show in question.
The most likely scenario, given The Bachelorette spoilers we've read, seems like #1 ... though the dress and the timeline skew make it far from clear.

In the end, it's all speculation until next Monday.
But what do you think? And who do you think she should pick when the season comes to an end next week? What big twists Chris promised can we expect?
