At the point when the arrangement commences, Lu can be seen conveying a token as a ring with the words “Ladies hold up a large portion of the sky” engraved on it in Mandarin. At the point when her associate Misha Popov inquires as to whether it’s from her better half, Lu carefully explains it’s from a companion.
At the point when she video calls her better half, there’s a delay in her tone when she responds she is glad to be his significant other, and soon the explanation is outed without her assent.
