Scoop: BACHELOR IN PARADISE on ABC - Monday, September 8, 2014This week on the surprising season finale of "Bachelor in Paradise," Chris Harrison returns to give the remaining cast a shocking ultimatum -- if they cannot see their relationship transitioning into their lives back home, they must leave paradise immediately. With emotions running higher than ever, a series of dramatic breakups ensue. Concerned that her friend may end up with the wrong person, Michelle encourages Graham to think twice about Ashlee.

And a third couple relaxes at the Zen Serenity Wellness Resort where the anxious bachelorette is excited to spend the night with her man in their fantasy suite.

The next day, the remaining couples return from their overnight dates. One excited bachelorette announces that her man is officially her boyfriend!
