The moment we've all been waiting for finally arrived! Well, two moments, actually -- Colton Underwood heading to fantasy suites, and over the fence!
The long-awaited Bachelorepisode aired on Monday night, and ET was live blogging along the way. After last week's shocking elimination of Caelynn (the only woman so far to tell Colton she's in love with him), just Tayshia, Hannah G. and Cassie were left in the competition.
Tayshia and Hannah G. have both expressed they're falling in love with Colton (and excited for the fantasy suites), while Cassie had yet to tell Colton how she feels (until Monday night).The 27-year-old former football player has admitted it's a major red flag, but their chemistry is undeniable.
Everything changed, however, when Cassie's dad flew to Portugal and convinced her that she wasn't "in love" with Colton. She broke up with him, and he freaked out, finding a fence his only way out.
Host Chris Harrison broke down the famous fence jump while speaking with ET's Lauren Zima at the "Women Tell All" taping.
"I told him, 'What are you, Liam Neeson? You're gonna go to the Embassy?' He said, 'Well, I grabbed my wallet.' I'm like, 'You don't have a phone, you don't have a passport, where are you going?' But he was just done, and I think that was the whole point," he said. "He finally thought he figured this whole thing out and figured out that he loves Cassie and this is it, and then Cassie realized his greatest fear and crushed him."
"He just kind of broke and snapped and he was done," Chris Harrison added. "I don't think I realized the severity of it until I was trying to walk after him."
Colton confirmed that he was just looking for a little alone time.
"I was gone for quite a bit. Chris was chasing after me trying to find me. I just needed to get away. I needed time and I think I realized I wanted I wanted to just be to myself and just sit in that moment by myself and realize whats best for me as a human being," he explained. "[I had to figure out] what do I need next."
Here's how it all played out:
Colton's gone, but not forever. The juicy promo for next week's episode shows the Bachelor team frantically trying to track him down.
He eventually reappears, however, as he's seen knocking on doors and uncontrollably crying. "I'm scared!" he cry-screams into the arms of a producer.
ROLL THE TAPES, WE'RE READY.
"He Just Jumped the F**king Fence"
Colton heads up to his hotel room, comes back out, breaks stuff, storms through the production tent, rips off his mic and HOPS. THE. FENCE!
"He just jumped the f**king fence," Chris Harrison says, slowly chasing after him until they open the gate and realize "he is gone."
Soft, Emotional Music Continues
All the awards to whoever set this soundtrack, because it's the only thing getting us through this 200-hour breakup.
Cassie's crying in the car, there's violins, but where's the crescendo, though? We're ready for the fence jump!
Colton Is PISSED
Colton doesn't give up... like, ever. "I f**king love you," he tells Cassie, before then saying he'll give her space, but then also saying he'll never stop fighting for her.
Cassie, however, finally decides it's time to leave. "I want you to be with someone who's insanely in love with you," she says.
"That breaks my heart," Colton admits, after giving her a very awkward kiss on the forehead.
Colton Has the Shakes
Colton is so upset that he can't stop shaking... or kissing Cassie... or telling her that he wants it to be her.
IS THIS TRUE LOVE?
The Neverending Breakup
The fence jump is coming, but we don't know how much more of this breakup we can handle.
"I'm sitting here telling you that I'm in love with you," Colton says, as Cassie continues to express her confusion.
When she questions how Colton can tell her he wants to be with her at the end when he still has two other women left, he says he just feels that "strongly." "I want a future with you, and I'm telling you right now, at the end of this, I want it to be you. I want to be with you. I love you."
Cassie Drags It Out
Cassie is done with Colton, but she's not really, because it's taking her FOREVER to leave.
"I don't know if I'm going to get there," she tells Colton after walking away, only to sit back down with him.
"I'm not asking you to make a decision," Colton replies. "I want to be with you, I want to be around you."
"This is bigger than anything else... the last thing that I'm going to do is walk away from this relationship," he continues.
Someone's Not on the Same Page
And it's Colton and Cassie!
"My dad actually showed up at my hotel room earlier. He talked to me about how I was feeling, and how big this whole thing is, and he told me about my mom and him and their kind of love," Cassie tells Colton. "He never had any doubts about it... she never had any doubts about it either..."
"I don't want to see you leave here not having what you came here for," she continues. "I'm not in love."
"I have to send myself home tonight," Cassie tells the camera, as poor Colton excitedly gets ready for his date with her.
"Cass is the one. Outside of all this, I can definitely see us working together," Colton tells the camera. "I love Cassie. I want to be with her."
We Think a Breakup Is Coming...
"You can't force it," Cassie's dad says during his heart-to-heart with Cassie... and he appears to be getting through to her. "If you're not feeling it, the longer you let it go on is not doing you any service, not doing him any service."
"I really like him. I really care about him," Cassie cries.
Cassie's Dad Crashes the Party
Hello, Mr. Randolph!
Cassie's dad flies to Portugal. "I have a concern with the potential engagement that might be around the corner," he says.
Cassie Freaks Out
"It's really important that my dad approves or gives his blessing," Cassie tells the camera. "The fact that they weren't, like, 100 percent sold on Colton and I together kind of freaks me out."
"I don't think I've ever been so confused about something this big," she adds. "It's so hard."
Colton Tells Cassie Her Dad Didn't Give His Blessing
"I didn't get his approval," Colton tells Cassie, clearly blindsiding her with the news.
"I'm so confused right now," she replies. "I didn't know he was not gonna... and you're OK with that?"
"It does not discourage me at all in this," Colton explains. "You mean a lot to me."
Cassie Says There's Been 'No Red Flags'
"There's been no red flags," Cassie tells the camera on her date with Colton. YEAH, BECAUSE YOU ARE THE RED FLAG.
However, the Huntington Beach native seems optimistic about her future with Colton, gushing over how "perfect" he is.
Colton's In Love With Cassie
Cassie may not have shared her feelings for Colton, but he's head over heels for her.
"Cassie makes me feel complete. I would love nothing more to hear Cassie's falling in love with me," Colton tells the camera. "I know I love her. Point blank."
It's Cassie's Turn
"Today is the biggest day for Cassie and my's relationship. Today can change everything," Colton says before picking up the blonde beauty in a convertible.
"I want to be in love with Cassie, and in order to get there, we really need this time together to see where we're at," he continues -- reminding everyone that she's the last woman left not to share her feelings for him.
So... Did He Do It?
First fantasy suite down, and Colton's still a virgin.
"It was... interesting," Tayshia tells the camera. "I could just pick up on how nervous he was. I want to be supportive and not influence him in any way, so we didn't have the physical intimacy that I wanted. But I got to see him for who he truly is, and it just validated my feelings for him."
Fantasy Suite Time!
After an emotional dinner, where Colton promises to never cheat on Tayshia like her ex-husband did, it's time for the moment we've all been waiting for.
"Wanna get out of here and go to the fantasy suite?" Colton asks.
"I don't know if he'll wake up a virgin tomorrow," Tayshia teases to the camera.

"I've thought about the first time several times. It will be caring, it will be passionate, and it will be something I remember forever.... I want to make sure we make the most of it."

Colton's Not Looking for Any Guidance
