Stop reading immediately if you would like to know all of the above].
Bachelor in Paradise is now several weeks into Season 5, and the next episode is scheduled to air on Monday, September 3 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC. Viewers can expect a whole lot of tears to come, but some bachelors and bachelorettes will find their fairy-tale endings.
At this point in the season, Jenna and Jordan are falling in love, as well as Kendall and Joe. Krystal is also falling for Chris, while Tia can envision a marriage proposal from Colton. Kevin and Astrid have also been going strong, and Annaliese and Kamil are pretty solid following one date together.
John, however, will have to choose between Chelsea and Olivia, while Eric will be forced to pick between his longtime love interest, Angela, and newcomer Cassandra.
According to a preview of the upcoming three-hour episode on September 3, Bachelor in Paradise will welcome Shushanna Mkrtychyan to the mix, leaving Annaliese crying to her friends on the beach, "I am so scared right now."
Something will leave Colton and Tia in tears, with Chris teasing it may be "the final chapter" in their romance.
Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone reported in July the couple broke up in Mexico despite trying to make their relationship work and becoming official boyfriend and girlfriend on the island days earlier.
"I guess Colton didn't see themselves lasting in the real world so they broke up and both went home," Carbone wrote in his spoilers.

And according to the preview, Eric will break down over the difficult decision he'll have to make after Angela calls him a liar and Cassandra says she feels "misled."
More tears will be shed by Chelsea and Shushanna, but former Bachelor in Paradise cast members, Ashley and Jared, will lift viewers' spirits through their televised engagement. Footage will be shown of Jared getting down on one knee in June and proposing marriage to his best friend of three years.
And then on Tuesday, September 4, Shushanna will ask Kamil out on a date, and he will accept. Annaliese will later accuse Shushanna of doing witchcraft in order to force Kamil to break up with her.
Chris Harrison calls it "the most jaw-dropping week in Paradise history."
In addition to the cast members who have already appeared on Bachelor in Paradise thus far or been featured in a preview, Carbone reports former The Bachelor New Zealand star Jordan Mauger, former The Bachelorette bachelors Robby Hayes and Diggy Moreland, and former The Bachelor bachelorette Christen Whitney will also make an appearance on the show. (Christen also competed on an episode of ABC's The Proposal and finished as the runner-up).
At the cocktail party preceding the season's Final Rose Ceremony, Kendall and Joe will break up, according to Carbone, although they will have been together for most of the season.
Kendall and Joe's relationship, however, doesn't seem to be over in the real world. Not only did Kendall visit Joe in Chicago a few weeks ago, but social media indicates Joe also spent an early August weekend in Los Angeles with her.
Kendall and Joe attended a Dodgers game together in L.A., so there is clearly still a spark there!
Eric Bigger also allegedly decides to go home at the cocktail party because he didn't feel right pursuing a relationship with either Cassandra or Angela after juggling them both in Mexico.
At the Final Rose Ceremony, there will reportedly be nine roses to hand out.
Those guys present at the ceremony will allegedly be Robby, Jordan M. and Diggy -- who are around because they all enter in the last round of arrivals -- as well as John, Kamil, Chris, Kevin, and Jordan K.
The women still left by the final Rose Ceremony will reportedly be Astrid, Cassandra, Shushanna, Krystal, Annaliese, Olivia, and Jenna.
According to Carbone, Diggy will be the only person sent home at the Final Rose Ceremony.
Carbone reports Astrid will give her final rose to Kevin, Olivia will give a rose to John, Cassandra offers her rose to Jordan M., Annaliese chooses to give her rose to Kamil, Krystal asks Chris to accept her rose, Jenna gives her rose to Jordan K., and finally Shushanna offers her rose to Robby.
At the end of the season, the Bachelor in Paradise host will sit down with the remaining couples in Mexico to explain it's time to take their relationships seriously or leave the resort.
Chris will ask each pair to decide whether they want to leave Paradise separately, depart the show as a couple, or stay another night in Mexico and enjoy an overnight Fantasy Suite date together.
So have any other couples hit it off or reconciled since taping wrapped earlier this summer?
Besides Astrid and Kevin's rekindled romance, Carbone has heard John and Olivia's romance continued in the real world after the show.
Nick Spetsas -- who was eliminated at Bachelor in Paradise's first Rose Ceremony -- and Chelsea are believed to have rekindled a romance and are currently together. Chelsea has traveled to Florida twice to visit Nick, including a trip that she took just less than two weeks ago, Carbone says.
Connor and Angela were also allegedly photographed together on July 4 in St. Petersburg, FL, which is interesting considering they didn't even date in Paradise.
As of last week, Carbone wasn't sure whether Kamil and Annaliese are still dating, however, he says the reunion special that was filmed on August 28 featured Kamil dumping Annaliese onstage, turning the crowd against him.
Carbone adds "Robby and Shushanna are definitely not together," and "Jordan M. and Cassandra aren't together" either.
