Later, she’s uncertain about the party and Jack gives her an ultimatum - if she wants to marry him, meet him there. Sharon rushes to R&R on learning Phil has gone there too. Jack announces their engagement. Lola’s face falls. As everyone cheers, Sharon's eyes meet Phil’s - his face is like thunder.
