Then, theres a part where Peters mom/national treasure Barbara Weber, can be seen sobbing."Don't let her go. Don't let her go! Bring her home. Bring her home to us!" she says between tears. That scene left Bachelor Nation with one burning question: Who are you talking about, Barbara? WHO?!
Of course, the trailer gives fans zero clues (because, again, Bachelor), so eagle-eyed fans have to do some digging.
Heres what Bachelor Nation know so far: Peter and Chris Harrison did an interview with Entertainment Tonight where they shared that the scene happened during the last week of filming.
"She's nominated for a Golden Globe, by the way," Chris joked about Barbaras tears. "That's the thing, Peter is so close to his parents. His parents play a big part in this as well, and their emotion and all that is captured, you're going to see it. You're going to see it all play out. It'll take your breath away."
Its easy to assume that Barbara is talking about one of Peters final women, but then theres the whole Hannah Brown stuff to consider. Fact: The former Bachelorette star has now shown up on two different episodes, one of which she cried her eyes out and basically told Peter she still questions her decision to eliminate him on her season. It seemed like the feeling was mutual, and Peter even said it was hard not to kiss her at that point, sothats a little suspicious.
That said, The Bachelor is notorious for fooling fans this way, so Hannah could totally be off, happily living her single life RN while Peter cozies up to his new flame behind the scenes. OR Hannah and Peter might totally be together thanks to a tear-filled nudge from Barbs, and all will be right with the world (go ahead, @ me).
At least, thats what it seems like Bachelor fans want. Proof:
I truly do think peter leaves with Hannah B like theres no other reason his mom is begging him otherwise #TheBachelorABC (@danieleebeckerr)
#TheBachelor conspiracy: Peters mom loves Hannah Brown. In the preview she was shown crying saying just bring her home ...what IF peter gets all the way to the end and realizes hes still in love with Hannah B and tries to chase her after all of this is over??? pic.twitter.com/4U28QYrtR1 J Mitch (@jordanmitchelI3)
Another eagle-eyed fan pointed out that Peters mom is following Hannah on Instagram (although, to be fair, parents arent always the best at unfollowing people in a timely manner):
Peters mom is following both Hannah B and a fan account thats called teampeterhannahb. Shes also following a few other precious bachelorettes but who cares. Sara Brooke (@SaraBrooke3)
Still, you guys. STILL.
**Warning: Bachelor season 24 spoilers ahead**
Okay, heres what fans really know so far, thanks to Bachelor spoilers from Reality Steve : Peters final two women are Madison Prewett and Hannah Ann Sluss . And, considering Madi met Barbara during the first week and they totally hit it off... her crying could (emphasis COULD) be about Madi. Or it could be about Hannah Ann. Or it could simply be about the ~concept~ of Peter finding the right womanwhoever the heck that might be and whenever the heck that might happenand bringing her home.
Beyond the final two, no one outside of production knows what happened. "I know many of you were expecting all your answers to everything about the ending this season today, and I dont have them," Reality Steve wrote in a post about the finale .
Apparently, Peter doesn't propose to anyone at the end, which, whoa. But Reality Steve said Peter doesnt opt out of the whole Bachelor sitch and go after Alabama Hannah at the end either.
"Hannah Brown has nothing to do with the ending of this season. I know people are still holding out hope, and I know youll have questions about, 'Well how can he just shut off those feelings,' or 'are you sure,' and 'well what about this or this' etc.," Steve said on his blog. "All I can tell you and officially confirm today is that after you see Hannah and Peter finish up their convo on next Mondays episode, she has nothing to do with the rest of Peters season."
As for who Barbara is crying about, ugh, fans still have no freaking clue.
