Monday's "Bachelorette" began with a huge shocker: An emotional self-elimination that ended a relationship Katie said she could see "going to the end."
In a tender moment, Michael A. revealed he was "at war with himself" whether to continue his journey with Katie while his 4-year-old son feels neglected at home.
"I'm not leaving because of us, I'm leaving because my son needs his dad," Michael A. told Katie, "You taught me how to love again."
The self-elimination left Katie confused and heartbroken, as she admitted that she saw herself and Michael A. "going to the end." The decision pared down Katie's remaining contestants to three men: Greg Grippo, who won the legendary First Impression Rose, Blake Moynes, the wildlife-obsessed "Bachelorette" frequenter — Katie is the third Bachelorette he's dated — and Justin Glaze, the romantic painter.
