The next day Jill, Jenn, Jessa, and Jinger head to a book signing for Growing Up Duggar and mingle with some of their fans. In the middle of the book signing Jill gets a video call from Derrick and steps away from the table, he invites her to go on a lunch date with him when she gets back home.
Back home Derrick begins planning his proposal for Jill, he heads to the jeweler with his Mom to get the engagement ring he picked out for her sized. He heads home and picks out the suit he plans to wear. He does his hair just the way the Jill likes it, and even uses hairspray that she gave him to hold it in place.

Derrick arrives at the Duggar house and picks up Jill, and her two sisters Jana and Joy so that they can chaperone their date. They head out to lunch. Joy and Jana were told the night before that he was going to propose, and can’t help but notice how nervous he is. Afterwards they go for a walk and head to the town square. A stranger sitting on a bench, stops them and asks them if he can sing a song to them on his guitar. Once he starts playing, three more musicians arrive and it is obvious that the song was staged. Once they are done playing Derrick, gets down on one knee and asks Jill to marry him. She accepts his proposal.
