Jared pops the big question; Todd weeps for his lost love.
Mistletoe & Proposal
Clint gives his blessing when Jared asks for Natalie’s hand in marriage, and Clint offers Jared a job at Buchanan Enterprises. Natalie tells her mother all that is in her heart for Jared, so when Jared tells Viki he plans to propose, she couldn’t be happier. Roxy nearly blows the surprise, but Jared manages to get Natalie alone and pops the question.
Law & Disorder
Tea Delgado continues to shred her opponents in the courtroom, infuriating Cole who considers taking drastic steps until Starr calms him. Starr has her own plan to make Todd pay and makes a surprising announcement to the court after the judge renders his decision in the case. Over Tea’s objections, the judge allows Starr to take the stand and her emotional testimony leads to an entirely new set of legal issues for Todd and Tea to deal with. Todd is granted bail, and once he returns to the home he shared with Marty, he weeps for his lost love. Later Todd gets a surprise visitor. Marty is left devastated by the court proceedings, and although she exchanges gifts with Nora and Cole, her mind is on other things.
