A lot of people seem to be operating under the impression that next week is the last episode. It isn't.
Next week is a 1 hour episode as usual.
The following week is the final episode which is 2 hours long. It is in that episode that he makes his final choice and drops "the bomb."
Does anyone know exactly what will take place next week? I am assuming he will go on two more dates to try and help get to know them better.
Then the following week perhaps another date with each and then his final decisions and the "news."
That would mean he has two more dates each (and approximately 30 minutes of tv coverage for each) and then an hour to handle the selection, the admissions to both of them, and the fallout.
Of course, there also seems to be enough time for there to be some kind of "wild card" situation if FOX made the effort to spice things up.
