Gangaa 30 November 2020: Sagar again teases her that she was looking incredibly cute when she was jealous. Finally, they arrive back home.
Sagar’s father welcomes them all back, and especially rudra, who he heartily invites. he asks the purpose of rudra’s visit. he says that there is an elaborate puja, and hence planned it now, and hence brought ragini too, so that she could have enjoyed with sagar and ganga. supriya asks where is the happy couple. Meanwhile, sagar and ganga too arrive, and are about to step in, when ammaji stops them at the doorstep. all are tensed. she asks them to keep standing here till she returns back. she leaves. all are tensed. prabha asks ganga what she did, that they were stopped at the door. ammaji comes with a puja thali, and does their puja, while all are pleasantly surprised, and ganga and sagar are flushing with happiness. ammaji then takes their hands. ammaji gathers the family together and informs that she wishes to get ganga and sagar married, as she wouldnt bear them hiding and having their secret love moments. they are overjoyed, while ragini is tensed. ammaji says that they shall find a suitable time and get them married. ammaji asks them to be sent back to her room, after everyone is done with congratulating them. she leaves.
Ammaji gives her the box of jewelleries, while ganga is shocked. all are pleased. ganga asks how is this possible, as they were lent to the money lender. the other widow says that ammaji never gave it to the moneylender, and she just took it from her, and gave it to her to keep them safely, as she couldnt possible have given them away. ganga gets emotional, but ammaji cuts her short, saying that she did what she had to, and then asks them both to leave. ganga rushes to ammaji to hug her, while ammaji says that she doesnt wish to cry. she asks them both to leave. they both get overwhelmed, and sagar takes her out. Prabha hears this and is shocked, and comes in after they leave. She expresses in shock to ammaji, that its a great sin that she plans to commit, as ganga is a widow. ammaji says that she was a widow, and isnt anymore, but now she shall be a wife, as she was seven years when her husband died, and that she has been carrying the burden unnecessarily, and she faced all the humiliation, but not anymore. she says that now ganga and sagar shall marry, and if that doesnt happen, that would be a crime. prabha complies, saying that she being the eldest, would have taken the right decision. the widow leaves too. ammaji finds sagar’s father in the doorway, who had heard everything. he coems in and sits down beside her, saying that he still cant believe,
but of all people she is the one who agreed to it, and he is mixed with emotions, as he doesnt know what to feel. she says that what happened in the past few months have forced her to do this, and that ganga loves him, and he too is intensely attached to ganga, and its natural for them to get married. she talks about ganga has always stood as a shield for sagar, even after the way they disrespected and mistreated her, but she kept on being with sagar and wishing his well being, unfazed by what they put her through. ammaji says that she understood but always ignored, and says that now finally she tried to take the right path. she says that therefore ganga shall be the rightful bahu for their house, who brings back happiness in their families, hopefully noone casting evil eye on them. he smiles and complies too.
Later, in her room, sagar donss the necklace around ganga, who is very ecstatic to see it. Ragini hurriedly rushes in, and expresses her desire to play but ganga says that she needs to go down for dinner, while sagar pretends to be scared. ganga keeps the necklace back safely. Seeing ganga has a box of jewellery in her hands, and ragini is excited to know about whats in the bag. before ganga can talk about her marriage with sagar, he hastily tells that these are jewelleries for his would be wife. they are called down for dinner. ragini refuses to eat. they say that they shall be back after food. she complies. Sagar and ganga rush out for dinner, and then he takes her against the stairs, leaning in intimately, while she is nervous. he asks for a kiss to let her go, while she reluctantly complies, mixed with nervous and shyness. as he leans in to kiss her, she turns away shyly. a romantic gaze follows. Their romance is broken off, as they are hollered for dinner. they are amused, as ganga rushes away, while sagar fumes.
After all disperse, ragini tries on the jewellery. Ragini thinks that if its sagar’s bride, then its rightfully hers only. Prabha overhears this from a distance, and is amused to find that she wishes to be sagar’s bride. she thinks that she got spices just like that and starts thinking as to how now she shall use this pawn, to ensure that ganga never gets married to sagar.
At the dining table, they discuss sleeping arrangements, and madhvi says that ragini can sleep with ganga, while he sleeps with sagar. rudra is most reluctant, and says that ragini is used to sleeping with him, and that shall continue. madhvi’s husband says that then their bedroom is a big one, and they both can sleep there, while they shall manage in the guest room. but rudra asks them to merely put in an extra mattress in the guest room and they shall be fine.
they try to convince him, that ragini has grown and can now stay with others too. rudra says thats exactly the reason, that ragini has grown, and oly he needs what she needs and wants. Madhvi complies to rudra’s request. then they get to eating. sagar serves her icecream, but rudra doesnt like it. he gets tensed, while ragini loves it. his father asks if ragini has to go for the puja too. rudra compliers. prabha eyes her tensedly, and then ganga viciously.
Later, in his room, rudra comes and asks the maharaj for ragini, and is told that she went to see sagar. he is tensed.
In his room, sagar is busy playing cards with ragini, pulkit, supriya, and ganga. he tries and tease her, by pinching her on the leg. ganga gets alarmed, and he is amused, pretending nothing happened. he reminds her of the kiss thats still pending. pulkit and supriya share signals too. rudra comes in and finds ragini playing with sagar. he denies to play and asks ragini to come and sleep, but she insists that she shall play.
he tries to get to sleep, but she gets on a whim, and pleads with him. sagar asks him to let her play. but rudra is insistent, and asks her to come along, and takes her from there, while she isnt interested. he takes ragini away. then prabha watches them playing and stealthily leaves. Supriya and ganga continue to play with sagar and pulkit. Prabha takes leave. ganga finally wins, and is excited, while sagar stands sullen. ganga teases him that she has been winning continuously.
sagar and ganga find pulkit and supriya sharing signals. Pulkit says that they wont play anymore, while supriya is eager to play. he forcibly takes her away, leaving behind ganga and sagar alone. she is conscious of their loneliness, and gets awkwardly tensed. he eyes her amused. he shuffles away all the cards, and gets close to her, saying that she found it very amusing, to leave earlier in the afternoon, but where would she go now.
he gets in close to her, while she is nervous and shy with excitement. he caresses her face as he pulls away the hair strands from her face. she manages to say that this isnt right, as she closes her eyes, revelling in the feeling of this. finally, she jerks him away, abruptly, saying that they should wait till marriage. he cups her face, and comforts her, saying that they love each other, and marriage is a mere formality, that is beneath their love. she says that she isnt able to participate in it. he says that its okay, and that he wont come close anymore. she tries to calm him down but he says that he doesnt wish to know anything. she tries to comfort him, while he says that he shall come oly when she makes the first move. he gets frustrated and lies on the bed, pulling the blanket on him. she leaves. he looks up and finds her gone, thinking that she didnt even try and impress him back. he fumes at her.
Meanwhile, in his room, rudra gets her insistently, while she has a sullen mood. he tries to cheer her up, and she finally complies. she asks for chocolate, and he gets it for her, and she hungrily gorges on it. he caresses her, while she hugs him. he says that he does whatever he does, for her well being. he then tries to tell her a bedtime story, when prabha comes in with cold water, as the maharaja forgot. rudra gets a call, and goes out to receive it. prabha starts emotionally blackmailing her, about how good they look together. she asks if she lieks sagar, as she knows everything. ragini asks how does she know. prabha says that her brother doesnt like sagar, and ragini is emotionally manipulated and influenced by prabha,
who says that rudra wouldnt ever let her get married to sagar, and then ganga shall marry him. ragini gets berserk. Prabha tells her that she has an idea, by which she can become sagar’s bride. ragini asks how. prabha says that she shall help her and asks her to promise first that she wont tell anyone. she complies. then prabha asks her to do exactly whats told. ragini complies to that too. then rudra comes back in, after the call, and prabha retires. ragini sleeps, and rudra lies down beside her, pulling the blanket over her.
Prabha then comes to the balcony, and pinhces a red saree from there, kept there to dry, and then stealthily goes back. she finds ragini still awake, and flickers the torch on her, to indicate her to come out. ragini complies, and indiscreetly steps out, while rudra is obliviously fast asleep. prabha hopes that rudra doesnt wake up, or else everything shall be ruined. as fate would have it, just as she is about to step out, rudra wakes up and asks where is she going. she says that she is going to the bathroom, and urgently insists that she has grown up, and can go alone. he sits waiting for her to come back, while she steps out of the room. then she meets prabha, who asks her if she remembers what she has to do.
Ragini asks prabha if sagar shall marry her. prabha convinces her, and says that if she does what she is told to do, then she shall be sagar’s bride. ragini happily gets in the room. praha stealthily pulls the drapes together, and then eyes her tensedly. then prabha makes her dress up in a saree, with flowing hair, just like ganga does. prabha eyes her evilly, while ragini is tensed. she leads her to sagar’s room, teling her that sagar told her to wear the saree. prabha asks her to stick to what she is told, and not utter a single word. prabha eyes her evilly, as she steps inside the room. then she shuts the door from outside.
Meanwhile, rudra starts getting impatient waiting for ragini. Ragini sits beside sagar’s bed, and caresses his neck and ears, and nudges him awake. he is shocked to find ganga, while still trying to see clearly, as prabha turns the fuse off. Prabha then thinks that now in darkness, sagar wouldnt be able to see anything, and her plan shall be a success. as she predicted, sagar in his bed, finds a red saree clad lady, and assumes its ganga, oblivious that its actually ragini, and says amused, that she did finally reach back to impress him, as he knew in his heart that she would. ragini silently complies. he seductively says that she did manage to agree. Rudra finds the lights gone, and rushes out concerned for ragini. Sagar stealthily grazes his hands past ragini, as he leans in to get intimate with her, while she barely closes her eyes in excitement. The screen freezes on her face.
