by at .  Updated at .

Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 7 marked the finale for the inaugural trip to Paradise - but you can rest assured, ABC has already green lit Season 2.

How did the first one end? Who found love, who left disappointed and what epic twists awaited for the cast members who made it this far on the series?

Follow the link to watch Bachelor in Paradise online, then continue on as we recap the shenanigans from start to finish below ... and there were plenty:

No more date cards, no more new arrivals, and no more rose ceremonies. It's all about the relationships and it is ultimatum time. The duos have a choice:

Commit to a real relationship, or pack up and GTFO.

Certainly changes the nature of the game, doesn't it. So who's out and who's all in? Let's break down the six couples who came into the finale together ...

Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd: Engaged!

Marcus professed his love for Lacy several weeks ago, and she finally follows suit in the finale, telling him she's all in ... and then he does her one better.

They're about to do the final exchange of roses when Marcus asks for a minute alone with Lacy. He gets down and asks, "So, Lacy, will you marry me?"

She says yes, of course, prompting cheers.

Christy and Tasos Hernandez: It's Over!

Christy and Tasos went on like one date, so neither was super invested or particularly surprised when the other wanted out, so all's well that ends well.

Jackie Parr and Zack: It's Over!

Jackie is similarly uninspired by her relationship with Zack, who wants to get to know her better but doesn't put up much of a fight when she wants to bail.

AshLee Frazier and Graham Bunn: It's Over!

This one was a bit of a surprise - for AshLee Frazier, not for us. She was feeling great about the future of her relationship with that catch Graham Bunn.

Michelle Money believes otherwise, and says so.

"I don't think she's genuine. And i don't think that she's here for you. I think she's here to put on a show," Michelle tells her former flame in a heart-to-heart.

"I'm telling you, I don't think she's right for you."

Graham realizes she's right, and dumps her. "We've had our missteps. It scares me," Graham says. "I just don't think I can continue on. I'm sorry."

AshLee is blindsided and totally heartbroken.

"It was the right thing to do for both of us, but it sucked, Graham says, with the ultimate quote: "It's hard to say goodbye to the concept of loving someone."

"Reflecting back on it, for me, Paradise is lost."

Sarah Herron and Robert Graham: It's Over!

"Tonight is this perfect opportunity [for Robert] to get to know me in every way possible," Sarah says of the prospect of staying in the Fantasy Suite.

"I hope he goes there. I hope he digs deep."

Presumably he didn't. "I wanted to be awake all night, getting to know Robert and Robert getting to know me. That didn't happen. At all," she laments later.

"I felt rejected. Robert didn't want to be physical."

Sarah gives him the boot. Robert is sad about it, saying, "It's hard for me to tell people that I love them, but I gave it my best shot. I guess it just wasn't enough."

Michelle Money and Cody Sattler: Still dating!

Here's a feel-good story. Cody is "head over heels" for Michelle, who initially wasn't feeling it, but decided to give the guy a chance because she's awesome.

In the end, Sattler gets the girl - at least for now.

"After the time that I got to spend with Cody last night, I am so crystal clear about what it is I want right now," she raves after the fact. "And I want Cody."

She and Cody join Chris Harrison, Marcus and Lacy, Chris Harrison, Jason and Molly Mesnick, Sean and Catherine Lowe, and Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried.

The three engaged or married couples sits down with the Bachelor in Paradise twosomes to assess their connection, and get the stamp of approval. PHEW.

ABC has given the show a similar boost of confidence, renewing Bachelor in Paradise for Season 2 next summer! Who else is counting the days?!
