The Blacklist returns from a two-week hiatus this week, and though we're still wondering about that bag of bones, Liz's (Megan Boone) newfound badassery and whatever Red (James Spader) is up to, there's another question that needs to be discussed: What's the latest with Aram's (Amir Arison) love life?

In this exclusive sneak peek of the episode, Aram adorably asks Liz for some dating advice. It turns out he has a ring that he wants to give to Samar (Mozhan Marnò), but he's been told that you don't give rings as gifts to your bae unless it involves getting down on a knee and making a big commitment. And Liz — who has plenty of problems of her own and doesn't need to add anything else to her plate at the moment, so couldn't Aram take a hint, I mean come on! — is not really up to play Dear Abby.

Could Aram actually decide to alter his plan and pop the question? According to the episode description, Aram will be considering a "step forward" in their relationship, so things are looking good!

The Blacklist airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
