It was an incredible journey for Sean Lowe on his quest to find his one true love. The only problem is that he must decide between two amazing ladies—Lindsay and Catherine. The women meet with Sean’s family. They are both charming and well received. This doesn’t make things any easier. Dad says it’s a win-win because they are both wonderful women. At the end of it all, it’s up to Sean to decide.
On her final date with Sean, Lindsay admits that she’s nervous. She doesn’t know what she’d do if she lost him. Lindsay is reassured by his kisses. She presents him with lanterns that represent love, happiness and family. It’s a tradition in Thailand to send these lanterns up into the sky, so that’s what they do. Sean believes being with Lindsay feels so some comfortable and right.
Catherine goes on an elephant ride with Sean on her final date. She later tells him how difficult it is for her to get emotional. Catherine is hesitant to say “I love you” first because that has failed for her before. But she dials up the courage to say those three little words. The bad news is she didn’t get the reaction she was hoping for. Tears flow. Sean tries his best to comfort her, but Catherine can’t help but want reciprocation for her feelings.
Sean picks out a ring for his proposal. He stands alone in a beautiful outdoor setting as Lindsay makes her way towards him. Sean tells her how much of a surprise she’s been to him. He’s amazed by this woman, but he can’t give Lindsay his heart because it’s leading him somewhere else. Sean tells Lindsay that he loves her, but he has to say goodbye.
After Lindsay leaves, Chris Harrison gives Sean a letter. It’s from Catherine. It’s a heartfelt note about how perfect she believes they are for each other. When Catherine arrives by his side, Sean lets her know that he wants to spend the rest of his life telling her that he loves her. He gets down on one knee and asks for her hand in marriage.
Catherine is overwhelmed. She can’t believe it’s for real. Sean slides the ring on her finger as she says “yes” to his proposal. He then presents her with his final rose. Catherine accepts that, too. Woo hoo! The happy couple hops atop an elephant as they ride off into the sunset to begin their new life together. Congratulations Sean and Catherine!
