Before the men told all, the episode took us back to New Mexico, where contestant Michael gave bachelorette Katie Thurston some shocking news.
In an emotional scene, Michael informed Katie that he would be leaving the show to spend time with his son. Before the scene, Michael shared a teary FaceTime call with his young son and expressed his guilt over being away from him to be on the show. When confronted with the news, Katie was understandably emotional and admitted that she saw herself going to the end with Michael. The conversation concluded with Michael giving Katie a stopwatch and telling her he wished he had more time to spend with her but reiterating his need to return home.
