According to ABC, Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 Episode 11 will start where the previous episode ended last week. In a surprising turn of events, Noah Erb and Abigail Heringer broke up. Then in the BIP finale, multiple couples realize they need to start thinking about their future after the final rose ceremony.

Meanwhile, the network’s press release confirms Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert will return to the beach and share their love story from season 6. But ultimately, the Bachelor in Paradise finale will answer any burning question fans have left, including who will stay together, get engaged, and break up.

While many Bachelor in Paradise fans are wondering who gets engaged in the finale, others are fixated on the love triangle with Joe Amabile, Kendall Long, and Serena Pitt. The situation seemingly ended in week 4 after Kendall eliminated herself. But a preview for episode 11 suggests that Kendall returns and potentially gets back together with Joe before he can propose to Serena. 

In all honesty, we don’t think Kendall’s return will impact Joe and Serena’s relationship in the Bachelor in Paradise finale. Both Joe and Kendall recently made it clear that they didn’t come back to the beach to get together. But at this point, anything is possible. Following the premiere, Joe even promised Bachelor Nation fans will be “surprised” by the couples at the end of the season.

“There’s gonna be some unexpected twists. The most dramatic season yet,” Joe said on Off the Vine. “I would say you’re going to be surprised by the couples at the end.”

Whatever happens in the final episode of Bachelor in Paradise 2021, it seems we’re in for some twists and turns. So stay tuned. 

The Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 finale will be released on Tuesday, Oct. 5, on ABC.
