Sabih's perfectly orchestrated surprise for Olivia fell under the guise of a friend's birthday dinner. A dinner that, oddly enough, was supposed to start at 3pm (at a restaurant that was not even open until 5pm). However, Olivia was none the wiser. Sabih guided them on to the balcony overlooking the Potomac to "meet their friends" against protests from Olivia that he was going the wrong way. When they got to the perfect spot, he stopped and expressed his love, culminating in a heartfelt proposal. The ring box, a testament to Olivia's passion for ceramics, was handmade by her dear mentor and friend, whom Sabih had thoughtfully commissioned to hold his ring. Olivia joyously accepted, and then the second surprise appeared; several of their closest friends joined in on the celebration. Thus, Olivia and Sabih stepped into a future illuminated by the warmth of their shared commitment and love for each other.
