Imlie 20 January 2023: Tripathis get ready for dandiya event with their partners. Malini stands with Adi and says he is looking good. Imlie says she forgot her place and forcefully making her to sit on a sofa says it would be bad for the baby if she dances, so she should rest. Aparna backs her. Dulari joins family followed by Sundar. Anu taunts Aparna that her servants got courageous and wants to dance with them as her son accepted a servant as his wife. Sundar gets sad and tries to walk way. Adi stops him and tells Anu that Sundar is his brother like Nishant and part of his family, Anu is an uninvited outsider though. Nishant plays music for Sundar and whole family dances.
Anu angrily takes dandiya sticks and heads towards Imlie when Aparna stops her and whole family dances surrounding her. She pushes them away and heading to Imlie hits dandiya sticks, but unable to bear Imlie’s power her dandiya sticks fall down. Imlie jokes that she is unable to handle strong sticks and gives her balloons. Tripathis laugh on Anu, and she walks away frowning. Malini gets sad seeing Adi and Imlie’s dance and walks away crying. Aparna alerts family to watch Adi and Imlie’s dance.
Malini stands aside crying. Dev walks to her. Malini says he must be happy that his favorite daughter is accepted by her in-laws, he should leave as she doesn’t have strength to listen to his lecture. He says they themselves should fight for their happiness, she will soon realize a love parents when she will bear her own child and starts emotional chat. He finally asks her to stop running behind Adi as her first priority would be her baby, he should become old Malini who was his bestfriend, who was worried for Adi and Imlie’s relationship and just concentrate on her baby. She asks what if she couldn’t be his bestfriend and normal like before. He asks her to try.
Adi and Imlie notice family missing. Nishant and Rupali masks them and drags them aside. Imlie’s jokergiri starts. They remove mask in front of Adi’s room door. Imlie notices family standing and asks why did they kidnap him. Adi shows graha pravesh arrangements and delivers heavy dialogue. Aparna says her graha pravesh was missing, hence they all are performing her graha pravesh in Adi’s room. She requests Imlie to apologize her followed by Harish and Radha. Anu thinks its good Malini didn’t stay back to see this middle class emotional drama or else her heart would have been broken. Family asks Imlie complete her graha pravesh ritual.
Malini enters and stops her. Anu thinks Malini will stop graha pravesh. Malini says finally a day came which Imlie was waiting for, she wants to perform Imlie’s graha pravesh. Tripathi family rejoices and Harish says Imlie is accepted by both families now. Anu tries to stop Malini, but Dev stops her Malini emotionally says her baby is her first priority now and she wants her/him to get everything he/she deserves, so she wants Imlie’s support, etc. Imlie agrees. Malini performs Adi and Imlie’s aarti and congratulates them. They both walk in to room holding each other’s hand. Next day, Malini offers imlie/tamarind to Imlie reminding her that she taught her to have imlie. Imlie says this is fake imlie. Malini say shopkeeper said its real. Imlie says this time she will not fall for her tricks.
Malini offers Imlie/tamarind to Imlie. Imlie says this is fake imlie. Malini says shopkeeper says its real. Imlie says she can fool family but not her this time, so she wants to know why she is doing this. Malini says she wants to correct her mistakes, help her in her studies, and support her. Imlie says she already has a support, Adi is hurt between their fight, she is afraid that she will betray her again. Malini pleads to trust her for baby’s sake and walks away. Rupali with Nishant and Sundar watches Malini and asks if she really has changed after her papa’s lecture. Nishant says seeing Pranav’s incident, their family is strong and can cope up with Malini’s tricks if she does any in the future.
Rupali says Malini was good before and changed due to her mother’s influence. Sundar sees Imlie coming and jokes on her. She gets angry and offers Rupali and Nishant turmeric milk. They all 3 taunt her that she needs milk as its her suhagraat with Adi tonight. She acts nervous, blabbers, and leaves with a milk glass for Adi.Adi seeing his room decorated tries to clear flowers from his bed. Imlie enters, and flowers fall on her. She alerts Adi and finishes milk in 1 go. He says he will not crimple the bed until she agrees and shows empty cupboard for her clothes and stuff, book shelf for her, and bedside. He says he removed all old stuff from this room and hence he wants her to forget old memories and forgive him, Aparna’s acceptance is a big victory for her and she should accept him.
She says she does but when its a question of Malini. He says he is talking about himself and asks if she thinks Malini’s intentions are wrong. She says if he thinks he is misunderstanding Malini. Adi says the situation in which they met was in their favors, Malini did something which even hurt him, but she is not a bad person and changed for her baby, so he is sure she will take care of baby well. She says even she accepted Malini’s baby, but truth is Malini wants to get back Adi. He says he will not even if she wants to, a mother is always good. She says Malini’s mother is bad. He says Malini came under her mother’s influence, but she has changed. She says Malini is careless and reminds all the incidents.
He asks not to talk about past and think about today where she performed her aarti. She continues. He asks why don’t she trust her after him trying to prove his love for her repeatedly , he is talking about himself and she bringing Malini in between. She starts crying. He tries to console her. She says they will be only in each other’s dreams if this continues and tries to leave. He apologizes and stops her. She says she cannot trust him until she regains trust for Malini and walks away. He thinks he will do whatever he can to regain her trust.Anu walks to Malini’s room and asks shall she leave now. Malini says yes. Anu says she said her goodbye as she will not accept her becoming a devi of sacrifice.
Malini finally agrees that she changed her tactic to get back Aditya from Imlie, remembers what Imlie did, Aparna and whole family supports Imlie now, now she will use emotional blackmail and make family against her. On the other side, Dulari tells Mithi that she cannot trust Malini. Mithi says Malini has changed for her baby like Dulari changed after coming here. Dulari says Malini is Anu’s daughter and is evil like her. Mithi says she cannot punish children for parent’s deeds. Dulari says Malini’s both parents are betrayers and a saint cannot be born in evil’s house. Imlie enters and says Dulari is right, they cannot trust Malini easily as her love has turned into madness and she can go to any extent.
Devi brings gifts for Triapthis and says they accepted Imlie, so Mithi brought gifts as a shagun. Mithi says she brought karva chauth gift for Imlie’s first karva chauth fast. Anu says its even her daughter’s first karva chauth this time. Aparna says she will give sargi/fasting food to Imlie and will not let Mithi have any complaints left. Adi says karva chauth fast is kept for husband’s long life, so as a gift to Imlie he is giving divorce to Malini before karva chauth and asks Malini to sign divorce papers.
