Footage showed Colton standing in a beautiful courtyard while staring into a ring box -- but eagle-eyed viewers noticed the ring box did not contain a ring and was empty.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Harrison joked about the phantom ring.

"What does that mean? Does it mean that Neil Lane didn't give us one this season? Could be," Harrison teased.

"Could it be that Chris Harrison stole it? I have a whole chest of rings. People wonder where the old rings go. At night, I just put them all on."

Colton gushed in the promo clip about being "madly in love with" one woman, the bachelorette with whom he shared a romantic night with in the Fantasy Suite.

The editing even allows fans to think Colton lost his virginity to this unidentified woman of his dreams.

"When you share that part of yourself with somebody, there's no going back," Colton said in a confessional.

"I've never loved somebody as much as I love her. I'm excited and I'm nervous, because today is the biggest day of my life. I am getting down on one knee and asking her to be my wife."

Harrison, Colton and even ABC executive Robert Mills, however, have all teased a shocking and dramatic ending like no other.

Mills admitted his heart raced while watching the "insane" and "off the rails" screener for the finale, and Colton previously admitted to quitting the show at one point and doing things his way.

If the emotional conclusion of The Bachelor edition truly is groundbreaking, it's unlikely Colton will propose marriage at the Final Rose Ceremony and his final pick will simply accept.
