This story contains episode-by-episode Bachelor spoilers of what happens as the 2019 season of The Bachelor air on ABC. It also contains Bachelor spoilers which reveal if Colton is engaged, as well as the current status of his relationship with the bachelorette winner he ended up with].
Colton has followed his heart and gut instincts up to this point on The Bachelor's 23rd season, but his hardest decisions of the process have yet to be made.
And viewers will also find out whether Colton continue to question Cassie and Caelynn's intentions after Tayshia and Kirpa Sudick threw them under a bus by saying they're not ready to get engaged and discussed potentially becoming the next The Bachelorette star.
Colton also previously teased viewers will witness the moment he jumps a fence, lashes out at production and decides to quit the show.
But first, Colton will be shown traveling to the hometowns of his Final 4 bachelorettes, all of whom he's seemingly falling in love with.
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, the women's round of hometown dates filmed from October 27 to November 2, 2018.
The first date Colton will go on during the next episode airing on Monday, February 25 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC will be with Caelynn.
Colton will travel to Fredericksburg, VA, to meet Caelynn's family.
After enjoying a romantic, old-fashioned horse and carriage ride through the historic town, Caelynn will treat Colton to a family "fry party" under the watchful eye of her skeptical stepfather.
The fun family gathering, however, will take a turn when Caelynn's family grows very protective and looks for some answers.

Colton will have to prove to Caelynn's clan his intentions are pure and he's truly serious about getting engaged and subsequently married.
"Will Colton get his blessing to marry Caelynn if she is his chosen soulmate?" ABC teases.
"At the end of the moving evening, the pageant beauty declares her feelings for Colton, but will both of them be on the same emotional page?"
Next up will be Hannah G.'s date in Birmingham, AL.
Hannah G. will attempt to transform Colton into the perfect Southern gentleman before introducing him to her parents, who are worried about Colton's sincerity.
But that's not the only hurdle Colton must overcome in Alabama.
According to Carbone, Hannah Brown -- feeling rejected and confused after her elimination in Denver, CO -- will "show up uninvited" to Colton's hotel room to confront him about what went wrong in their failed relationship.
Hannah B. will most likely be after some closure, especially since she was dumped shortly after revealing she was falling in love with The Bachelor star.
Cassie hopes her family will provide the clarity she needs to figure out her emotional state, but according to the network, her plan falls flat.
"Instead, their warnings stress her out, which makes communicating with Colton that much more problematic," teases ABC, adding that Cassie will leave the gathering more confused than ever.
After traveling to each woman's hometown, Colton will have to make a heartbreaking decision and eliminate one beautiful bachelorette, leaving her "shattered," according to ABC.
Carbone reports Caelynn is the girl who goes home in fourth place. She was allegedly ousted during a Rose Ceremony held in Los Angeles, CA.
"The others are excited that the Fantasy Suites are next, [but] then in a stunning turn of events, Colton leaves the room to talk to Chris Harrison. Why? And will he change his mind -- and his future?" the network reveals.
Colton and his Final 3 bachelorettes then allegedly head to Sagres, Portugal, for a week of intimate and romantic overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
The Fantasy Suite dates will air during Episode 9 of the series, but viewers will reportedly only see two of them!
Carbone claims Colton only takes advantage of two Fantasy Suite dates instead of all three.
Carbone allegedly first enjoys an overnight date with Tayshia that taped on November 6 at the famous lighthouse on Cabo de Sao Vicente.
The Bachelor's second Fantasy Suite date will be with Cassie, and their night together filmed on November 8.
Colton allegedly determines after his date with Cassie that she's the only girl whom he wants to continue dating. His heart was therefore sold early on in the process!
In seasons past, many leading men or women found themselves torn between their Final 2 bachelors or bachelorettes. Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Ben Higgins, for example, were completely distraught when having to choose between their Final 2 ladies.
After spending the night with Tayshia and then Cassie, Carbone revealed in his podcast in December 2018, "I was told... something happened on that overnight date that made Colton want to be with Cassie and basically end the show."
However, Cassie reportedly realizes she's not ready to settle down or accept a Neil Lane diamond ring from Colton in the end.
"Cassie told him, 'I don't want to be engaged,'" Carbone disclosed in his podcast.
"She essentially pulled a [Peter Kraus]. Like, 'I'm 23, like, I don't want to be engaged.' And I'm being told -- and I can't 100 percent confirm this -- but I'm being told this is where the fence jump happened. Because on that overnight date, Cassie left the show."
Colton's desperate plea reportedly resulted in the couple choosing to continue dating together and taking an engagement off the table since Cassie is only 23 years old.
"I don't know how many days after [Cassie] left [Portugal it was], but they filmed something in [Los Angeles]. I'm assuming [in] Huntington Beach, where Cassie lives, because she lives with her parents in Huntington Beach," Carbone said.
"They filmed something in the States, where Colton comes to Cassie and basically says, 'We don't need to be engaged, but I want to be with you.' And that's where we are for right now."
Carbone had been hearing Cassie would probably be Colton's winner since mid-October 2018.
In fact, the spoiler blogger said from the start he would be "stunned" if Cassie didn't receive his final rose.
So are Colton and Cassie still an item? What's the latest on their relationship?
Carbone said Colton and Cassie are currently dating and will share a relationship update with fans in a couple of months when The Bachelor: After the Final Rose airs on ABC.
"My guess is Cassie is very young, and her feeling of, back in November, telling Colton, 'I'm not ready to be engaged,' [is] probably still going to stand in March. But that's just a guess. We'll see what happens," Carbone predicted.
However, Cassie appeared to play up the rumors and spoilers about her relationship with Colton in a recent Instagram post.
Cassie posted a photo of herself flipping a tire on a previous group date in which the girls had participated in a "Bachelor's Strongest Woman" contest.
"Caption Options: 1. When you gotta secure the ring 2. Get this ring away from me. I'm not ready for that...Or am I? 3. Hey @neillanejewelry ... do you make rings this big?" Cassie teased on Instagram.
Maybe Cassie is ready for an engagement after all! Fans will probably be delighted to hear from them on After the Final Rose.
Carbone concluded his podcast at the time by apologizing for previously incorrectly reporting Colton and Cassie were engaged.
"I apologize for reporting that they are engaged. They are not," Carbone said, referring to his initial set of spoilers that he had to correct.
"But he definitely chose Cassie, and they are definitely seeing each other, and have been seeing each other since the end of filming."
If the spoilers turn out to be accurate, Bachelor Nation will miss out on a lot of typical footage from Colton's season -- including Hannah G.'s overnight date, the Final 2 women meeting with Colton's family, the Final 2 women's last one-on-one dates with Colton in Spain, and, of course, a Final Rose Ceremony.
But based on a trailer ABC released on February 11 for the rest of the season, the production team edited footage to make it seem like a final Rose Ceremony was taped, as Colton was shown staring at a black ring box in a beautiful courtyard.
Eagle-eyed fans, however, noticed there was no ring inside the box at all -- an observation Chris Harrison recently dodged questions about when asked during an interview.
In late February, Colton told former The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe on her Off the Vine podcast "the spoilers that are out there are wrong," but Carbone still stands by his sources and claims.
