The Bachelorette's Katie Thurston Says She's 'Done' After Her 'Front-Runner' Quits the Show

Katie Thurston's journey completely changed on the August 2 episode of The Bachelorette, after a hometown date went horribly wrong and led one of the final three guys to walk away.

Greg. By the end of the episode, Greg had experienced a shocking change of heart and walked away from the show, leaving Katie in tears in the bathroom and telling co-hostKaitlyn Bristowethat she wants to end the season and book a flight back home to Seattle.

The drama was foreshadowed a bit by Greg catching a glimpse of Blake's hometown date as he and Katie kissed and played hockey. Greg was clearly rattled and told the camera, "Seeing her with Blake—she looks so happy, and it scared me."The History-Making Bachelor Nation Moments

Next was Justin's hometown, which his parents opted to skip because they apparently did not support their son jumping into a relationship so quickly. Instead, two of Justin's buds joined Katie and explained that he usually has walls up when it comes to love.

But the episode was all about Greg, who had been Katie's clear favorite up until this point, and appeared tohave the strongest connection with her. When Greg's mom asked Katie how she was feeling, the Bachelorette replied, "Greg, and I hate to use the word 'front-runner,' but Greg is someone I have a strong connection with. Greg is someone—I don't care if I'm allowed to say this—Greg will be here next week."

ABC/Craig SjodinAfter an emotional day with Greg's family, with him showing Katie photos of his late father, Greg decided to be honest with Katie about the fact that he "lost part of myself" when his dad passed."I didn't know I was gonna fall in love with you," he continued. "I didn't know that, and I am in love with you. And you just make me the happiest I ever been, and I see it with you."

But Greg's mood quickly shifted right after that moment. He didn't seem to appreciate Katie's response, as she smiled and told him, "I just love looking at you," and also told him he would get a rose but didn't give more of a hint at her own feelings. Previously during the episode, she had explained to the families that she'd decided not to let on who she was falling in love with until it was down to the final guy.

Katie picked up on Greg's change in mood and said she could tell he wasn't "happy right now," and they had a tense conversation as he walked her to the car. "I just don't understand how you don't know ... that it's me and you at this point," he told her. "I have never emptied my heart out to somebody like this before."
