The official TV Guide episode description reads: "In the fourth-season finale, a rescued woman seeks another date with her savior; a man receives the unwelcome news that he's viewed only as an acquaintance; and a two-timer breaks a woman's heart as he seeks a second chance with the love he lost."

Everything That Happened Between Corinne And DeMario
Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson were only in Paradise during the premiere episode, but their interactions became a major storyline throughout the season.
Shortly after the show began filming, Bachelor In Paradise production was suspended after a producer alleged that there had been misconduct between Corinne and DeMario after the two hit it off on day one of filming and got too close for comfort in the pool. The producer believed that they were too drunk to consent to the sexual acts.
Both contestants released statements shortly after the allegations became public. Corinne Olympios said: "I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4th. Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production."
[DeMario Jackson's statement] read: "It's unfortunate that my character and family name has been assassinated this past week with false claims and malicious allegations. I will be taking swift and appropriate legal action until my name is cleared and, per the advice of legal counsel, will be seeking all available remedies entitled to me under the laws."
After conducting a comprehensive investigation into the matter, Warner Bros concluded that there was no misconduct and cleared Bachelor In Paradise to resume filming, with a few new rules.
During the premiere episode of Bachelor In Paradise, viewers did see Corinne and DeMario get close in the pool, while other cast members noted that the two were not shy about their risqué behaviors.
DeMario Jackson, who had been on the receiving end of sexual assault accusations from the media and viewers when the shutdown was announced, sat down with Chris Harrison for a tearful interview, during which he stated, "I know I'm not that monster they're trying to portray on TV." Still, no hard feelings toward Corinne, to whom he still had not spoken.
The following week, Corinne Olympios sat down with Chris Harrison and said that, because of a new medication she was taking, she had no recollection of that first day of filming. She, too, harbored no ill will toward DeMario, saying, "I don't blame DeMario. I never pointed fingers at DeMario."
Corinne and DeMario will come face-to-face for the first time during the live Bachelor In Paradise finale. It's safe to say the two are on good terms, as they were photographed kissing in Los Angeles after filming.

With the finale comes the question: Which Bachelor In Paradise couples are still together?
