He calls her insecure and then leaves but not before telling Katie that saying yes to Jack will be a huge mistake! Brad runs into Jack in Old Town and despite Brad's attempts to sidetrack him and convince him not to propose, Jack says he is going to marry Katie. He shows Brad the ring and walks away.
