Shekeb Sekander's plan to surprise his girlfriend Emily Chu with a grand gesture, unfortunately, backfired pretty badly. The 'I Love A Mama's Boy' star wanted to surprise Emily by proposing to her with an engagement ring. But when he realized that his girlfriend was eyeing really pricey rings, he enlisted his mother Laila's help to pick out a ring. Laila, who isn't a big fan of Emily, advised her son to put a pin on his plans of gifting Emily an engagement ring and instead suggested he present her with a promise ring.

Laila convinced Shekeb into agreeing to her plan by declaring that she would accept Emily with open arms if she gracefully accepted the promise ring, but also warned him that she would also never take in Emily if she made any fuss about the promise ring. After trying for several years to broker peace between his mom and girlfriend, Shekeb felt that this was the best opportunity to get both the ladies to accept each other and agreed to Laila's suggestion of giving a promise ring to Emily. Shekeb planned a picnic for Emily and him at a park and presented her with the promise ring.

Unfortunately for him, Emily was completely taken aback by his gesture. She threw away the ring and dubbed it cheap. Emily was very upset and felt like the mother-son duo was disrespecting her relationship by giving a promise ring. She angrily stormed off after arguing with them. True to her words, Laila declared that Shekeb and Emily were done. Shekeb too was shocked on seeing Emily behave that way and picked up the promise ring and presented it to his mother instead.

In the meanwhile, Emily had a chance to reflect on her behavior and was embarrassed by the way she handled things. So she kept trying to reach out to Shekeb and resolve the issue. But Laila prevented him from responding to her. In the preview clip for the upcoming episode, we see Emily going over to Shekeb and Laila's home trying to smoothen things out. When she sees Laila wearing the promise ring as a pendant around her neck, Emily gets furious and demands Laila to return it to her. Laila coyly replies saying it's her ring and Shekeb gave it to her after Emily threw it away. This further triggers Emily into getting violent. Emily can be seen throwing out flower pots and behaving wildly. The cliffhanger ends with Laila and Shekeb closing their door on Emily angrily.
