When The Bachelorette Season 16 returns with its fourth episode, the drama will pick up where things left off. The previous episode ended with an awkward group date. After piling on Dale Moss during the roast, Crawley didn’t give anyone the group date rose. Then according to the synopsis for The Bachelorette Week 4, the contestants will be “hopelessly confused,” and Harrison must speak with Crawley about the rest of her journey. 

The ABC press release also revealed Crawley will have a “stunning revelation,” which will result in a canceled rose ceremony and cocktail party. What’s next will be “unprecedented,” and Crawley will put her heart on the line with Dale. 

“A determined Clare formulates a plan to share her deep feelings with Dale over a romantic dinner. But what if he doesn’t feel the same way?” the synopsis reads. “Chris and Bri, who won Listen to Your Heart, serenade the couple with their song ‘Found You.’ Clare doesn’t want the night to end, but will Dale be on the same page?”

Meanwhile, the release questions whether Crawley’s remaining cast members will be “willing to take a second chance at love.” Another preview also confirmed Harrison will introduce the suitors to a “new bachelorette.” But is Adams the next lead? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Ahead of The Bachelorette Season 16 premiere, Harrison opened up about Crawley’s journey on the show. At the time, he couldn’t confirm or deny Adams’ involvement with the current season. But in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the host revealed Crawley’s ending would be “turbulent” and “tumultuous.” 

Nevertheless, when speaking with Extra on Oct. 13, Crawley shared why she was happy with her Bachelorette ending, no matter the outcome. “I went into this knowing that I wasn’t desperate for love,” Crawley said at the time. “I came into this a whole, happy woman. And if I found love, amazing. If I didn’t find love, and if it wasn’t my person here, that was gonna be OK, too. I knew that no matter what, I was going to be OK.”

That said, Crawley hinted there’s more to the rumors than we know. “I wouldn’t say you’re wrong with thinking you know what happens,” Crawley said. “There’s no secret I’m in it for love. But there’s a lot that you’d really be surprised at, that people think that they know.”

The Bachelorette Season 16 Episode 4 airs Thursday, Nov. 5.
