The Bachelor just aired the first part of its Season 22 finale on Monday night, and now the March 6 After the Final Rose broadcast will air from 8-10PM ET/PT and feature what happens next in Arie's love story with Lauren, as well as live interviews with all three individuals.
The finale was initially extended by ABC so the network would have enough time to cover this dramatic and shocking ending.
As viewers already saw, Arie proposed marriage to Becca at the final Rose Ceremony in Cusco, Peru, in November 2017 only to dump her and call off their engagement weeks later during what was suppose to be a "happy couple visit" in Los Angeles.
The reason? Arie was still in love with Lauren, and he couldn't stop thinking about her -- day in and day out. Arie thought it was unfair to only be "half-in" with Becca, and he acknowledged that he had made a mistake.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you want to be surprised by the current status of Arie and Lauren's romance].
Arie's breakup with Becca was apparently prompted by a conversation he had with Lauren in which he realized his feelings were still incredibly strong for her.
Arie worried that every additional day he spent with Becca lessened his chances of possibly reconciling with Lauren.
Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone reports Arie and Becca rang in the New Year together but then he had a conversation with Lauren on January 1 -- the night of The Bachelor premiere.
During that conversation, Arie allegedly asked the bachelorette if she'd ever date him again.
"I'm not privy to word for word what was said, but it was in this conversation that Arie made it known to Lauren he was having second thoughts and asked what she was feeling," Carbone claims.

"It was established in this phone call that Lauren would fight for the two of them. She certainly didn't shut him down... or tell him no."
Carbone says while Lauren did not ask or even encourage Arie to break Becca's heart, "there was no chance that Arie would dump Becca in hopes that Lauren would take him back. He knew she was willing to try it."
Carbone heard on February 24 that a beautiful romantic setup was being created in the early evening at the Monarch Bay Resort in Dana Point, which is the same California resort where Bachelor in Paradise couple Tanner Tolbert and Jade Roper got married in 2016.
"By all indications, what I'm hearing is that Arie and Lauren got engaged Saturday night," Carbone claims.
"I can confirm they were there (Arie was flying back to Arizona on his Instagram Sunday morning), I can confirm a film crew was there, and I can confirm that people there were told a 'Bachelor proposal was happening.'"
Despite having reliable sources and witnesses, Carbone cannot confirm that Arie proposed to Lauren, but all signs point to that being the case.
There are have been rumors out there that Lauren is pregnant, but Carbone does not believe she is.
"I have not heard anything about a pregnancy. If she got pregnant in the Fantasy Suite in November, she'd be four months along and I'm pretty sure I would've heard that by now," Carbone says.
"If she got pregnant the day he saw her in Virginia, that means she'd be less than seven weeks pregnant and I doubt that's the case."
Sources recently toldEntertainment Tonight there is "no bad blood" between Lauren and Arie and they "blame" him for what happened.
"Becca and Lauren will handle themselves really well. They're class acts," a source told ET. "For Arie, it's going to be a bloodbath. A lot of the women don't think his playboy tendencies have gone away. Will he last with anyone?"
An insider added, "The women are ready to grill Arie on After the Final Rose. [The winner] totally felt blindsided, and it's sad because she's a great person. She's such a pure soul."
As for which woman will becomeThe Bachelorette's Season 14 star?
Carbone thinks Becca will absolutely get the position and has already taped introduction footage in her Minnesota hometown for the show's premiere.
The announcement will officially be made on After the Final Rose on Tuesday night.
"I'm sure [Becca] still harbors resentment towards [Arie] and the way he handled it, and I hope she lets him know about it," Carbone writes.
"I wouldn't hold back if I were her. That'll be the fascinating part about next week... and Arie and Lauren are going to have to deal with a ton of scrutiny. I'm sure tears will be shed."
