Locky says his future with Irena looks “amazing.”
“Irena… I know you’re going to make a beautiful girlfriend, wife, mother, everything. You’re the whole package,” he tells her.
“However, my biggest fear is you’re not gonna be able to put yourself first, or tell me no. And I need in my partner, drive and ambition…”
Wait – is he gonna dump her too?
“…And I think you’ve got that in spades.” Phew.
“When I think about our future together, I’m so excited and I can’t wait to just travel the world and make all your dreams come true. Irena… ..I’m so in love with you.
“And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”
Irena accepts his love.
Locky then pulls out a ring for Irena that IS NOT an engagement ring, as the scene fades…and we await the inevitable social media announcement about whether or not they’re still together.
Not before he breaks down in front of her. Like seriously breaks down crying, unable to speak through sobs.
“I fell in love with you the first day I saw ya and I saw those big brown eyes.
“Like, they just make me go crazy. And, like, when I told you I love you, like, I meant every single word. But… ..like, I have fallen in love with two girls. And, like, I know…you don’t, like, sort of see where your future is at the moment.
“I think I need just a little bit of certainty… I just don’t know if I can see us working.”
Bella interjects: “This is it? I just don’t get it. Yesterday, you told me you were in love with me.”
“I AM in love with you.”
“Well, why not follow through with a relationship, then?”
“Because I asked you in the pool…what do you see our next year looking like? And you were so…”
“I said to you, as long as we’re together, that’s all that matters. We can nail out the details.”
After an awkward silence, Bella storms off.
“Can I leave? I’m going.”
And that’s that for Locky’s relationship with Bella’s eyes.
AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS…
“I don’t wanna be single anymore. I hate being single. I don’t wanna be, like, going through the clubs and, ‘Hey, baby, what’s happening?’ Like, I’m over that,” Locky says to the camera with a sad look on his face.
Honestly, our heart goes out for you Locky.
Locky is in love with Bella because “she’s my best friend. And I’ve never had that before in a girlfriend.”
As for Irena, “she’s everything you want in a girlfriend, in a wife, in a mother, in someone to grow old with.”
Up to the last DAY, hours away from the ceremony and Locky has NO IDEA who he is going to choose.
“I’m straight up being honest, I still have no idea what I wanna do. They don’t deserve to get their heart broken.”
Both girls are extremely confident on the way over to the ceremony – meanwhile, Locky is having a meltdown and insisting he doesn’t want to make a choice:
With Locky telling both girls that he is in love with them, they’re both going to be EXTREMELY confident going into the final ceremony.
“It feels like to me that Locky’s already made his mind up. Surely he wouldn’t tell you he loves you if he was going to pick someone else.”
Everyone in Australia right now:
It’s time for Bella’s final date with Locky, and did you know he loves her eyes?
“You’re so bloody beautiful. Those frickin’ eyes!”
While Locky can see a “perfect” future with Irena, he thinks it’s “exciting” that he is only ever in the “now” with Bella.
Locky gets himself into a huge freaking mess when he tells Bella that he is falling in love with her.
Pulling his shirt off, he shows Bella a quote he has written on his arm, just for her. It’s… very homemade:
“I’m definitely falling in love with you,” he tells Bella.
We watch the pair frolicking in a pool, but to the camera, Locky’s freaking out.
“Holy s**t, like, I’m in love with both of them. It seems logical to me, but for people at home, it would seem weird and strange and just unacceptable.
“It’s ripping me apart that I’m in love with both of them. Like, it shouldn’t be this way, but it is.
“I’m in love with both of them. What do I do? How do you break someone’s heart when you’re in love with them?” I guess the answer here is: You do it on national television!
While Irena has been quite level-headed throughout the series, she has become really emotional now that everything is coming to an end.
“I’m never the one that’s happy at the end, and I’ve let it all out there and I hope that this has all not been a lead up to just an awful break-up again.”
But all is well! Locky drops the L-bomb while the two canoodle in the hot tub, his hand placed on her heart (slash boob).
“I just wanted to tell you, I have fallen in love with ya.”
So it seems like people aren’t loving the fact that Locky needs a woman to tell him ‘no’.
Irena is used to being ‘the one before the one’, and is afraid that it might happen again in this situation.
“Every relationship that I’ve had, the guy that I’ve dated has married the next girl that they date straight after me. If it was to happen again and Locky picks Bella at the end of this and they go off and get married, I will be completely heartbroken.”
“I’m hoping history is not gonna repeat itself and I’m just gonna listen to my heart today. I wanna walk away from today with no regrets and leave him, you know, with no doubt in his mind about how I feel about him.”
Locky keeps pushing that he sees a perfect future with Irena.
Irena is Locky’s safe option, for sure… but will a man who likes high-risk adventure settle for safe?
The couple go off-road driving, and both gush about how much they love doing the same activities.
Going into a deeper chat, Locky confesses to Irena that his mum doesn’t think she has the strength to put in him his place.
Irena defends herself, clearing the air and any doubts his mother had about her.
“I can be bossy. So, like, when I need to, I can step into that and be like, nah. Like, I am stronger than a lot of people think.”
