Gangaa 24 December 2020: As ganga hopefully lights up the house with diyas, sagar comes and helps her with one of the diyas, telling her that this diya helped to sustain their love and care, and that it exposed everything that she had been hiding behind her false anger and pride in those eyes.
He says that behind the eyes, there is only love which has his name written all over it. he asks her never to let the diya of this love and this hope be doused, as if that happens, then he would die and she wouldnt be able to live either. krishna’s voice makes her realise that she was dreaming all along.
As sagar gets dressed, ready to go, ammaji asks where is he going, leaving the puja. Sagar says that he is going to ganga’s place. ammaji says that he should be in his house, for puja. but sagar says that he has to go, and eyes the jewellery kept beside the table. he asks if she took this for ganga and krishna. ammaji complies.
he takes them and begins to leave, when madhavi asks what about the puja here. niru comes in. sagar says that he is going to gift ganga and krishna, for Dhanteras. they smile. he seeks their blessings. zoya is frustrated and tensed. they comply. then sagar leaves. niru asks if he is going to ganga’s place and asks if she caleld him, and knows about him coming. he explains everything saying that its his right.
he leaves. ammaji is overwhelmed to see his happiness. madhavi says that he should have stayed home still. niru says that the home is where the heart stays. all are happy, while zoya is frustrated. At the puja, the priest awaits pulkit to sit with his wife. but madhavi says that she tried a lot, but pulkit isnt receiving. they wonder who shall do the puja. niru steps in saying that he shall and as per customary traditions, madhavi shall take her place beside him. he holds her hand and makes her sit. ammaji gets emotionally overwhelmed. zoya fumes.
As they alight diyas, sagar comes and krishna is ecstatic, while ganga thinks that mayve she is daydreaming yet again, as she fixates her gaze on him. they save the diya from dousing, and sagar iterates the same words that he uttered when ganga was dreaming. krishna asks what shall happen if this diya stays alight. sagar says that all her wishes shall come true. ganga asks her not to play with fire. krishna goes in to get her collection of flowers for puja.
sagar and ganga both keeps hands around the diya compulsively at the same time, to avoid it from dousing. he tells her that he told her in the dream. she gets emotionally overwhelmed, while noticing later, that he burnt his hands. she immediately rushes to his care, while he eyes her emotionally. she eyes him, realising that he saw her concern suddenly, and then looks away, walks in, while he stands there eyeing his burnt hand.
Later, as ganga is busy with prepartions, while the priest gets ready for the puja, she eyes sagar and krishna playfully spending time. the priest reminds ganga, that its a puja that requires, a husband and a wife to sit together and that she has sat alone for years, but it looks like kirisha’s father has returned. they both get tensed. ganga denies and hesitates, but krishna butts in saying that he is the father and they have to sit together. she is in a fix, as krishna and sagar, playfully side together, and ask the priest to start the puja, as they are merely going through a fight. but sagar adamantly forces her to sit, she resists at first, but when krishna too plays on sagar’s side. she reluctantly gives in.
ganga fumes, as she takes part in the rituals, while sagar and krishna are amused. they then do the arti together as a couple, while ganga fumes, but complies nevertheless. she remembers doing this with him, and then the way he betrayed her. after the arti, sagar takes blessings and ganga too.
As pulkit narrates his decision and how this is their last meeting, and that she cant weaken him with her tears. he says that its their last meeting, and they wont meet again. she says that this means he came in with his mind prepared and this means he never loved her truly, and maybe she only loved him, and she knows the consequences of one sided love. she victimises herself, for having trusted him and loved him so much, and thats the biggest mistake she made. he is unable to bear her tears, but she jerks him away, pointing out what she had hoped for, and what she got. she shows him the diwali gift she got for both of them, but now its of no use. she is about to berak it, when pulkit comes and asks her not to do so, saying that they have spent intimate moments together, and that they shall wear watches, remembering each other. she denies, saying that she doesnt need anything that reminds her of him, and asks him to go away. he asks her to try and understand that there isnt any furture. she asks him to go, with folded hands, while he asks her to stop it. she gets emotional and hugs him, saying that she would die without him, and cant live without him. he is in a dilemma and then reciprocates back. she asks him why is he doing this, as she loves him a lot. she says that he shouldnt talk of leaving again. he is distraught.
Sonu taunts zoya that things seem to be getting better between niru and madhavi and if that happens, zoya inheriting property shall always go out the window. zoya fumes, while he is amused and asks her to let go of her dream and come along with him, before they throw her out of the house. she asks him to stop this nonsense. he says that this diwali shall bring forever darkness in her life. she smirks, and says that not for her, but for them. Zoya is enraged and swears that Amasvasya night, shall forever induce darkness in their life and that there wont be light in the Chaturvedi grounds. ZOya says that the fire they rise, to pray to Goddess Lakshmi, shall furthermore burn the Lakshmi of their own house. Sonu hears on.
After finishing the puja, sagar holds out the gifts, while krishna notices that he is hiding something. he asks her to pick one closed fist. she complies and gets her gift and then she asks whats in the other one. he shows that they are bangles and says that its for ganga, and asks her to wait, while he goes and gives.
he goes into find ganga crying in the kitchen, emotionally overwhelmed. he comes and stands behind her, and then takes her hand, while she is startled. she turns around and tries to wrenche free, but he holds her tightly, and then kisses her hand, while tears flow down her cheeks. she jerks her hand away, and asks him why is he here, and begs him to go, and leave her alone. he says that he shall, but wishes to give her something first. he takes out the bangles for her, while she is surprised as they are the same ones, that he had promised since childhood.
she denies and puts her hand behind her back. but he forcibly, goes behind her and makes her wear it, while she is too weak to resist. he then talks romantic with her and then retreats back. she eyes him going and then the bangles, and then tries to take them off, as she remembers the past of the bangles.
Meanwhile, krishna is fuming, that ganga didnt get enough explosives for her. kashish hears tensedly. just then, Zoya comes and asks krishna to come so that they can go shopping. krishna happily rushes along with, while zoya thinks that she would never return now, atleast not alive. Zoya tells sonu over the phone, that she wont spare her at all, as today shall be krishna’s last night, and asks him to be alert about her missed call.
as per their plan, while walking ahead, zoya messages sonu, and he starts the car. sonu tries to run her over, while she obliviously and excitedly walks ahead with zoya. but before he can succeed, kashish comes and sonu stops. she comes to give the purse to zoya, and then tags along too. zoya fumes but has no option but to comply. she gets sonu’s call, frustrated at their failed attempt, while she says that she didnt have any other option, as kashish was also there. zoya says that they can have failed, but she shall finish krishna today at any cost.
In her room, madhavi is tensed remembering what niru did, when ammaji comes and confronts her. she starts throwing a tantrum, and starts scolding madhavi, for keeping a plateful of food in her room, while she herself had placed it. maharaj comes asking what happened. madhavi denies having done it. ammaji asks her to find some other place in the house to live, while madhavi is at a loss as to where to go.
she starts showing madhavi’s stuff, that doesnt suit a widow’s room, intentionally saying so, so that madhavi has no option but to stay with niru, who is also there, silently standing and watching it all. ammaji waits for a reaction. niru asks her to come along to their room, and takes her from there. maharaj and ammaji smile. she walks out, emotionally, watching the two of them go together.
she then asks maharaj to take madhavi’s stuff there. sagar returns back, and happily tells her that ganga accepted it. she congratulates him happily, saying that now she feels her house’s happiness is restored.
In their room, madhavi and niru tensedly eye each other, while she is bitterly crying. she comes to him, and places her hand on his shoulder, and he cusps it back. they both cry their heart out.
Ganga stands beside the window, and imagines a dreamy romantic sequence wherein he lovingly dances with her, and then also places the well deserved vermillion on his forehead. this alarms her, as she notices the empty vermillion, and gets apalled.
MEanwhile, sagar too imagines a similar sequence in his home, wherein he starts his marital life with her, and she too wakes up imagining that sagar sleeps next to her and krishna. she asks herself to compose, so that she doesnt start dreaming things that cause her ruin.
Ganga lights the diya, she is tensed and boggled and full of mixed emotions. she talks to herself, about the two faced dilemma she is in, as she wants to melt in Sagar’s arms, but then her ego and self respect comes in. she eyes herself tensedly. she accidentally burns her fingers, and krishna rushes to her defence. ganga addresses her as her father, and asks when is he coming. krishna teases if she is waiting too. ganga denies and continues to be ready.
krishna comments that she looks bful, and if sagar comes, he would be mesmerised. krishna talks abouty her beauty galore. ganga is amused. later, ganga finds her dupatta is long, and tries to talk her out of it. but krishna insists. while ganga is shown that the diya is dousing, and rushes to get oil, ganga herself is sitting tensedly.
while supriya tries to make juhi wear the earrings that she brought, juhi gets adamant that she wants the same one, that were brought for krishna by ammaji. she tries to talk her out, but juhi is vehement that she wont have these. supriya gets angry and says that she has become very frustrated, as she is neither taken care of, nor her daughter, as noone bothered to get juhi a gift, and everyone was worried about krishna.
