SPOILERS ahead from Hannah Brown's hot mess on The Bachelorette 2019 Season 15.
The first half of what we should be calling The Bachelorette Season 15, Episode 6 sounds like it's just a continuation of the Tuesday, June 11 Episode 5 Scotland drama -- hence ABC deciding to label the June 17 show "Episode 5B." We get the actual rose ceremony that we didn't see last week, and then it sounds like Hannah Brown has a meltdown over the fighting brotatochips.
Spoilers point to Bachelorette Hannah keeping Luke P. around for a while, and you can imagine that's not what the other guys want to hear. They have made it clear they don't get along. Luke P. and Garrett seem especially tense with each other. The promo for this episode shows Hannah telling the guys to stop, crying into Chris Harrison's arms, and then Chris asking if she's still in this.
Since previous promos showed more footage from The Bachelorette Season 15, it's clear she does continue. It's also clear Luke P. continues, because we've already been teased with his big fight with Garrett -- when Luke P. stands over Garrett and yells that he will NOT mess this up for him. Here's when that reportedly plays out, but don't get attached to specific dates this season, 'cause they are s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g everything out.
Spoiler guru Reality Steve's episode spoilers had said Episode 6, set in Latvia, would include dates for Garrett and Peter, with both getting roses. But we won't actually see that this Monday, June 17 after all. If we see that Monday, June 24, that does suggest the Luke/Garrett Netherlands drama ahead will play out July 1 instead of June 24.
Hannah's Bachelorette Season 15 seems to be extended beyond its expected end date. ABC had said Bachelor in Paradise would premiere July 29 but that was recently changed to Monday, August 5. So it's possible they are giving us an extended (drawn out) finale with more Luke P. drama, or that extra week could be taking this Episode 5B nonsense into account.
Either way, I'm just giving you a heads-up in case you watch the second half of this Monday's episode and wonder why you even bothered.
Here's ABC's full press release for Episode 5B, airing this Monday, June 17:
Luke P.’s desperate Hail Mary plea for Hannah’s heart after not receiving her date rose only makes matters worse with the remaining men. After listening to her suitors argue, Hannah becomes infuriated. The next rose ceremony brings more broken hearts, but even though Hannah’s frustration with the men continues, she hopes for a new start in Riga, Latvia, a romantic city steeped in history.
Suddenly, however, Hannah explains to Chris Harrison that she is not in a good place. All the drama has clouded her vision for future happiness. The woman who had seemed so sure of herself and her journey to find love, now is uncertain if this is going to work. How did Hannah get to this place? How and why has she hit her lowest point of the season?
In an explosive episode, she discusses her relationships with the most controversial men with Chris, looks back on her favorite dates and shares some of the hilarious unseen moments. But in the end, will Hannah decide to continue her search for the man who hopefully will propose to her or will she walk away alone? Will the men get a second chance to win her heart?
Should we blame Luke P. for this or the bros who keep fighting with him? Or just blame Hannah? Either way, Chris Harrison might actually earn his paycheck this week.
We obviously know Bachelorette Hannah continues the search after Episode 5B. If you want spoilers on who she reportedly picks in the end, here they are. It does sound like the Luke P. drama is going to continue up to the finale, even if she does not pick him. Hannah has defended keeping Luke P. around, and she does make a good point, but that's not going to make this any easier for her.
The Bachelorette 2019 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
