Chapter 7: Down On No Knee
While on the job, Carl had a revelation after he and Mike were nearly impaled by a rogue piece of scaffolding and he told his partner he intended to propose to Victoria over dinner that week. Excited by the news, Mike rushed home to tell Molly about her sister’s potential engagement.
Before Victoria even had a chance to say yes, Molly started in on wedding plans, shamelessly telling Mike she would plan the dream wedding they never had. As the big night approached, everyone beamed with excitement. Well, everyone except for Carl, who apparently had a change of heart.
The smiles soon faded after Carl told Victoria he wasn’t going to ask her to marry him yet, but not for the reasons we would’ve thought. To our amazement, Victoria confessed she, too, wasn’t ready to get engaged and would be fine with keeping things the way they were for now. Carl then stormed out of the restaurant, upset that Victoria was just as uncertain about their relationship as he was. Whether his reaction was based off pride, hurt feelings or jealousy, one thing was clear: This night was a disaster.
