Jealous Meena, already suspecting that there’s a spark between David and Leyla, spots David heading over to see Leyla. David continues to stall Leyla, until Leanna gives him the signal that Liam’s ready to propose. As Leyla and David platonically part ways, Meena rages to see them so close. Thinking that Leyla is trying to steal David, Meena rudely interrupts Liam’s attempted proposal to Leyla. When Pollard points out to David that Liam’s proposal doesn’t appear to be going to plan, David explains to Meena that the reason he spent the morning with Leyla was to give Liam time to prepare for his proposal, inadvertently blowing the surprise. Liam’s upset that his proposal has been ruined but realising the lengths Liam went to propose to her, Leyla suggests he try again. After he delivers a speech from the heart, she’s overjoyed and says ‘Yes!’. As Liam and Leyla celebrate their engagement, David and Meena’s relationship is looking less stable.
