While a marriage of convenience isn’t what she really sees for herself, she’s more than willing to make this plan work for the guy who’s always been there for her.

As they go through the motions of being engaged and making it seem real, things start to change. Mav sees that Britta may make more of a sacrifice than he can ask of her. She’s still all in for their plan, but he knows he should put a stop to it.

When he thinks of breaking their engagement off, his heart is wounded. He’s shocked at his feelings. Now he doesn’t know if he should let her go or fight for her.
