The Bachelorette team might have foreshadowed Greg’s exit as early as week 5. In the episode, Greg and Katie spent some one-on-one time together. But rather than focusing on their relationship, the editors chose to highlight Katie’s biggest fears about Greg.

“I was scared that you were gonna want to leave,” Katie told Greg. “Truthfully, one of my biggest fears is you wanting to leave.”

Greg promised he wouldn’t leave Katie behind. But the same conversation seemed to creep up time and time again. In the week 6 episode, Katie asked Greg whether he felt “good” with their relationship because he seemed hesitant. Then they both revealed they were starting to fall in love. 

Meanwhile, Katie and Greg went on their second one-on-one date in week 7 of The Bachelorette. Then during the dinner portion, Katie once again questioned whether Greg wanted to leave. 

“I see how you get during these group dates,” Katie explained. “It scares me. And today, I just hope you felt what I felt and can feel more confident in what we have.”

‘The Bachelorette’ Season 17 preview hints Greg Grippo is still insecure about his relationship with Katie Thurston

While Greg and Katie have a strong connection in The Bachelorette Season 17, it seems the team is still building a narrative that could lead to a breakup. As the ABC reality series heads to Hometowns, it’s clear there’s still a bit of insecurity lingering.

In the preview for The Bachelorette Week 9 episode on Aug. 2, Greg seemingly breaks down because he sees Katie kissing Blake Moynes on their Hometown date.

“I’m falling so hard for Katie,” Greg says in a voiceover. “When I see them kissing… God, I’m sick to my stomach.”

Then later, The Bachelorette contestant seems fed up with the format of the show, suggesting that he no longer believes in the process. 

“Who cares about the rose of who’s going home this week? If it’s not real, it’s not real,” Greg says.

Now, Bachelorette fans will have to wait and see whether Katie’s fears about Greg come true. But multiple previews have suggested that something happens between the two reality stars, and it makes Katie question her journey.

In The Bachelorette midseason promo trailer, Katie breaks down while wearing a dark blue top. The lead says she has “no words” for someone. She also suggests someone might be leaving early.

“I’m losing you, I’m losing my mind here,” Katie says.

In an interview with Bachelorette producers, Katie cries and admits she doesn’t know “what to believe in anymore.” Then in another shot, the lead is spotted running away from the cameras at the resort. She says she’s “done” and wants someone to book her flight home.

Meanwhile, Greg asks producers if he can leave in the middle of an interview. He is also seen in a separate clip trying to escape the Bachelorette team. The contestant is wearing a grey shirt under a dark jacket, and he appears to be in the same location as Katie when she tries to run away. 

Finally, The Bachelorette Season 17 blooper reel provides the final piece to the puzzle. In the clip, a cameraman trips over a table as Katie and Greg walk into a room together. Katie is also wearing her blue top, and Greg is in his grey shirt and jacket combo. So it seems the couple’s next big talk will blow up the current season. But for now, Bachelor Nation fans will just have to watch what unfolds. Get ready.
