At the club, Mia is startled when Arturo proposes to Abby after the vow renewal. Arturo wonders if his timing is off but Rey urges him to continue so Arturo gets on one knee and Abby agrees to marry him. She exclaims, “Yes! Yes, yes, yes!” Arturo slips on a gorgeous diamond ring and they hug. Everyone gathers to admire it while Mia is clearly uncomfortable. Rey remarks that he never thought he’d see this day. Arturo thinks he just needed to find the right woman. Kyle thinks that Abby will go “full scale Bridezilla” and teases that they should make today a double wedding but Abby wants her family with her.
At Underground, Phyllis watches Nick take out his frustrations on the dart board and questions him. He blurts, “I know about the body that you buried.” She wonders who ratted her out, but Nick doesn’t think it matters. He explains that he also knows his mom killed JT and wants details. Phyllis fills him in on stepping in to help so that his sister and mother didn’t go to prison. Phyllis works herself up while she details the night of JT’s death. She kept it from him because she made a promise to the others. Nick would believe her story more if she hadn’t held on to the murder weapon. Phyllis thought she might need it to protect herself but knows nothing about the fire poker ending up at the ranch. Nick reminds her she wanted his dad to rot in jail and wonders if she framed him. Phyllis is hurt and denies it then rats out Sharon.
