Spy show Chuck is not only about action. There's plenty of romance too which appeals to me as a romance reader. One of the more touching storylines involved Morgan and his soon-to-be stepfather Big Mike. Their relationship starts with Morgan avoiding his mother's house so he wouldn't have to face Big Mike. Big Mike reveals that he is proud of Morgan’s new role in the company. After spending months out at sea, he has realized that Morgan's mother is the source of his happiness, and reveals his intention to propose. Morgan hires him, and Big Mike entrusts Morgan with the proposal ring until Morgan judges him "worthy of his mother's love".
I think this was an important gesture for Big Mike to extend to Morgan. Coming into an already made family can be difficult and it's important for Big Mike to not overstep Morgan's role alongside his mother. Big Mike is showing that Morgan's feelings for him are just as important as Morgan's mother's feelings. If it were me I would have let Big Mike propose immediately. This gesture speaks very highly of his character and his understanding of other's feelings, so I would deam him worthy of Morgan's mother's love.
