There's an odd phenomenon taking place with certain reality shows these days, in which viewers know what will happen to the principal figures on their favorite series long before the events are depicted on TV.
Between social media and the 24-hour news cycle, we know more about the lives of public figures than ever before, and in many cases, producers have stopped even trying to keep audiences in the dark.
But any fan of reality TV knows that dragging things out and stringing your audience along is the name of the game, and even the Information Age can't change that.
For example, we've known for months that Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are engaged, yet seven episodes into Counting On Season 2, we still haven't seen Jeremy pop the question.
Producers aren't playing coy about the fact that we will see the big moment this season.
They hinted at it in an extended Season 2 trailer that dropped online back in August:
So when will we finally see Jeremy pop the question?
Well, if online speculation it to be believed, it's all going down tonight.
The stage is set for Jeremy to get down on one knee, and it seems the show won't pull another fast one on us with a lame engagement-themed clip show like the one we got last week.
Sources say Tuesday night's episode will feature Jeremy's meticulously-planned proposal, complete with string quartet.
At one point there was speculation that the season might end with a surprise wedding (It's still possible to keep some things a secret in 2016!), but now that seems unlikely.
If the show sticks to the same production schedule as last year, then the season will wrap up next week, which would leaveT LC with scant time to promote a wedding episode (historically the biggest ratings magnets for the Duggars).
No, it seems that viewers will have to wait until next season to see Jeremy and Jinger get hitched.
Of course, with all the rumors about Counting On being canceled, it's possible there won't be a next season.
This could be a case in which producers regret dragging out the drama for as long as they did.
Watch Counting On online to get caught up in time for tonight's big proposal.
