This article contains episode-by-episode Bachelor spoilers of what will happen as the remaining episodes of Colton's 2019 season of The Bachelor airs on ABC. It also contains Bachelor spoilers revealing whether Colton is engaged and the current status of his relationship with the winning final rose recipient he ended up with].
Colton has come a long way in his journey to find love on The Bachelor, but there have been speed bumps, such as four different women warning him to pick a woman with good intentions who is actually ready to get engaged.
Colton was confused about which ladies appeared on the show for the right reasons, but he narrowed down his bachelorettes to only four during the latest episode.
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, the hometown dates filmed between October 27 and November 2.
Hannah G's date was taped in Birmingham, AL, on October 27; Caelynn's date was filmed in Fredericksburg, VA, on October 29; Tayshia's date took place in Orange County, CA, and was filmed on October 31; and finally Cassie's date was filmed November 2 in Huntington Beach, CA.
Colton will first head to Fredericksburg, VA, to meet Caelynn's family.
Caelynn will take Colton on an old-fashioned carriage ride through the historic town, and then he'll be treated to a family "fry party" under the watchful eye of her stepfather.
The gathering, however, will turn emotional as Caelynn's protective family needs convincing that Colton is serious about his desire to be married, according to ABC.
"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?"
The Bachelor's next stop is Birmingham, AL, where Hannah G. attempts to shape Colton into a true Southern gentleman.
She will then need to persuade her concerned parents that Colton is sincere.
But Colton will reportedly see another woman during his time in Alabama.
Carbone says in a shocking turn of events, Hannah Brown -- feeling rejected and confused after her elimination in Denver, CO -- reportedly confronts Colton by "showing up uninvited" to his hotel after his date with Hannah G.
Hannah B. will most likely be looking for answers since The Bachelor star chose to dump her after she admitted she was falling in love with him and met his parents in Denver.
Tayshia will then test Colton's trust in her by driving him to a mystery location while he's blindfolded.
Upon arriving at Santa Ana, CA, near her hometown, she challenges Colton to go skydiving, and the couple will have the experience of a lifetime together -- before expressing their growing feelings to one another.
The jump will be terrifying, teases ABC, but "nothing compared to the reaction of her skeptical father."
Tayshia's dubious dad is concerned about his daughter's arduous marital past, so he is not quick to show his support for a potential quick The Bachelor marriage proposal.
And finally, Colton will meet Cassie's family in California.
Since Cassie has yet to share her feelings with Colton, she hopes her family will provide her with some clarity she needs about her emotional state.
"But instead, their warnings stress her out, which makes communicating with Colton that much more problematic," according to ABC, adding that Cassie will leave the gathering more confused than ever.
After traveling to each woman's hometown, Colton will have to make the difficult decision of letting one bachelorette go.
"He leaves one bachelorette shattered," says ABC, who, according to Carbone is Caelynn.
Colton reportedly eliminates Caelynn 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 teases.
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 together? What is the latest on their slow-moving romance?
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 Neil Lane ring inside the box -- 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.
