Ben Higgins himself has promised that next week’s Bachelor will be The! Most! Dramatic! Ever!, and thanks to a new sneak peek, we’re inclined to agree.

In an exclusive teaser for Monday’s episode, Higgins apparently wastes no time in taking aside Olivia Caridi, the most controversial of his remaining ladies who got her housemates’ tongues wagging during last Monday’s episode with her backhanded compliments and habit of monopolizing time with their “boyfriend.”

After Higgins calls Olivia for a sit-down, one of the ladies even predicts ominously, “She’s done for.” (For her part, the ever scrappy Olivia is not shrinking from the challenge, saying in an interview: “Come at me, bro!”)

PEOPLE’s collector’s edition The Bachelor, with new interviews and updates on your favorite contestants, is on sale now in stores and online!

Though you’d think the bachelorettes would be relieved that Higgins is apparently putting an end to the Olivia drama, it turns out taking down this season’s villain isn’t the only trouble brewing in Bachelor Nation.

Tears fall like rose petals as the ladies begin “questioning everything” in a series of events that even the Bachelor himself admitted “rocked me to the core” in his exclusive PEOPLE blog on Tuesday.

There’s so much drama, in fact, that Higgins will end up wondering by episode’s end: “What if all of this is for nothing?”

The Bachelor airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
