‘The Bachelorette’ Episode Guide (Aug. 7): Rachel Chooses Her Bachelor

“Episode 1310” Season 13 Finale (08/07/17) – It didn’t take long for Rachel Lindsay to rebound from her surprising, gut-wrenching rejection by Nick Viall and capture the hearts of America, as well as this season’s 31 eligible bachelors.

Now after surviving shocking twists and turns and a journey filled with laughter, tears, love and controversy, Rachel has narrowed down the field to Bryan, Eric and Peter. She finds herself falling in love with all three of these captivating men and terribly torn between them. She can envision a future with all of these bachelors, but time is running out. In a live, three-hour special, Chris Harrison takes Rachel and Bachelor Nation back to those final days in Rioja, Spain, to discuss the difficult choices she made along the way.

Her three suitors will join them throughout the live special, on “The Bachelorette: The Three Hour Live Finale,” airing MONDAY, AUGUST 7 (8:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

A preview of ABC’s hit summer series, “Bachelor in Paradise,” also will be featured.

Fans can go to ABC.com/BFL and the ESPN Fantasy App to play The Bachelorette Fantasy League, which allows players to challenge their family, friends and #BachelorNation in predicting weekly events, the final four men and the one who will receive the final rose.

An emotional Rachel struggles to find a compromise with Peter, who has admitted he isn’t ready to propose. On the eve of what should be a passionate night in the fantasy suite, Peter declares how much he cares for her, but ultimately is unsure if he can get down on one knee at the end of this journey. Who will be willing to compromise to make their relationship work?

Rachel’s final fantasy date is with Bryan. Their instant chemistry and passion have progressed quickly and steadily, making everything seem a little too smooth and easy. The couple spends the day horseback riding through the breathtaking Spanish countryside and stopping for a romantic picnic. Bryan senses something is wrong and confronts Rachel at dinner, worrying that her heart is with someone else. Will this be the beginning of the end for this romance?

At the rose ceremony, Rachel sends home one heartbroken bachelor. She then has one last date with her final two men. Will these seal the deal for one of them? In one of the most dramatic moments in Bachelorette history, Rachel looks at making a decision she hopes she doesn’t regret. She is in love, but is he the one? Will she have second thoughts?
