The next morning, Eliza was still emotional, which many viewers feared wasn't a good sign for the future of her relationship with Rodney. After getting out of bed, Eliza had a talk with Rodney where she shared what viewers already knew.

“I just don’t think I made the right decision for myself,” Eliza told Rodney. “I felt so much pressure. And I think I was influenced a little bit by how much love everyone has for you.”

As a result, Rodney had a tearful goodbye with the cast and Eliza left to possibly reconnect with Justin. However, based on Justin’s reaction to seeing Eliza arrive at his Baltimore home, fans knew the future was doomed for the two.

According to Reality Steve, Justin decided to pass on Eliza’s offer to reconcile. In a Nov. 5 tweet thread, the spoiler king shared that Justin said no to Eliza and claimed that he wanted someone who is “all in” on him.

And the two still weren't together at the time of the reunion special.

Steve then revealed what we'll be learning in that reunion special: Apparently when Eliza left Baltimore after trying to win Justin back, the two made a plan to connect again in Los Angeles.

However, Justin claimed Eliza ghosted him in LA, while Eliza claimed that Justin “didn't hit her up until like 11 at night when he was there.”

Fans pointed out that Eliza wanted Rodney to tell her not to go on the date with Justin when Rodney verbatim said that he “doesn’t want her to go,” but he can’t tell her not to.

Additionally, fans also brought up Eliza’s behavior after her date with Justin. While Rodney did apologize to Eliza — which many fans hated — she seemed to be disconnected from him. And when Rodney asked Eliza what he could do to fix it, she told him it isn't her job to tell him.

However, when Justin asked Eliza what he could do to keep her interested, Eliza provided him with a long list of things. So clearly, viewers immediately saw that Eliza had stronger feelings for Justin.

And since Eliza wasn't able to be open and honest about her feelings about Rodney, viewers believe that it’s a sign of immaturity. That said, fans do want both Eliza and Rodney to be happy, but it’s clear that Eliza isn't ready for what Rodney has to offer.
