Imlie 22 February 2023: Aryan searches Imlie and holds her hand. She asks what is he doing. He shows masks and says they are dance partners. She says she doesn’t want to dance now. He says she has to. She says then she will go right now. He holds her back and says even he is not interested to dance with her, but he will not let her worry for her ex-husband and will not let her spoil his party and hence she should shut up and wear the mask as everyone’s eyes are on dance floor. He fixes mask on her face and dances with her with Shiddath Banaloon Tujhe.. song playing in the background. They both imagine dancing solo passionately. After dance, she frees herself and walks away leaving him teary eyed.
Imlie then calls Mithi and informs that Aditya is not responding after interview and she is worried for him. Meethi rushes towards Aditya’s place. A man walks to inebriated Aditya and exchanges his earphone. He runs away seeing Meethi coming. Meethi seeing Adi inebriated and murmuring Imlie’s name asks why he separated from Imlie when he loves her so much and helps her reach his guesthouse. Anu sees Malini tensed and asks her to relax as Adi is in Pagdandiya/PGD and servant Imlie is here. Malini says Imlie surely must be trying to contact Adi and may visit PGD if he doesn’t respond, then nobody can stop them from reuniting.
She calls Aditya and gets disheartened when he doesn’t pick call. Anu promises her that servant Imlie will not talk to Aditya.Imlie tries to call Adi when Aryan pulls her mobile. She turns and sprains her neck and yells at him as usual. He asks if its paining, he will call a doctor. She says they twist their neck twice to relieve sprain and insists him to do it. He agrees but feels nervous fearing she will get hurt. She says he always gives her a good advice and can never hurt her, so he should hold her neck and twist it twice. He does. She falls down. He gets worried and thinks if he should have said Jai Seeta Maiya. She laughs and says she was joking. He sees her getting a call from PGD and says she is doing a mistake again.
She says she has seen Aditya filling sindhoor in Malini’s hairline and tolerated it, she needs time to get out of it. He says she shouldn’t expect much from a 35-year-old man who is doing journalism since more than 10 years. Imlie says she knows PGD well and can help him out.Anu to divert Imlie’s attention sets fire into a carpet. Arpita panics seeing fire. Narmada calls Aryan. Imlie asks Narmada to not help her and let her get out of her fear. Aryan rushes towards Arpita next. Imlie stops him and pins him down. Aryan pushes her away. She holds him tight and says fire is not that high and he should let Arpita fight her fear. Aryan says he doesn’t have time to experiment.
She hits him with a vase, pins him to wall, and requests him to trust her once. She asks Arpita to move aside. Aryan runs towards Arpita again. Imlie holds him with a stick. Aryan warns her to stop her nonsense as he will not stop and will break her stick. She says he can try. He breaks stick. She punches him in his back and pins him to ground and says says he will not cross her drawn line today.Aryan and Imlie’s tussle continues. Aryan says he doesn’t want to hurt her, so she should get out of his way. She says akkadbagga is dominating a lot, she will break his akkad/arrogance and will see who will save him from her. She pins him down and then taking a spear tries to stab him injuring his neck.
Arpita seeing rushes to rescue Aryan and pushes Imlie away. Aryan asks if she is fine, and she cries hugging him. Imlie says she was saving her from her brother, now she defeated her fear. Arpita asks if she did it for her. Narmada emotionally says she fought with Aryan to save Arpita and thanks her. Imlie thanks her bag for trusting her. Arpita hugs and apologizes her for pushing her down. Imlie says its okay. Narmada hugs her next. Aryan stands shocked seeing that. Aparna asks Arpita if she is fine and scolds Imlie that her they can’t understand her desi ideas. Imlie acts as hurt and then laughs
Aryan calls doctor and gets Arpita checked. Doctor says Arpita’s BP is normal, it means her phobia is gone. Narmada thanks Imlie for clear Arpita off her old fear and blesses her. Imlie says she can understand her blessings, but cannot expect thank you or blessings from Aryan. Narmada says her son is very kind and asks Aryan to thank Imlie. Aryan thanks Imlie and walks away. Narmada hopes Imlie frees even Aryan from his pain.Malini tells Anu that people think Imlie is poor and helpless, but she is overtly luckly and became a hero again. Anu says they shouldn’t bother as their mission was to keep Imlie away from Aditya, which they did.
Malini says once they leave, Imlie will try to contact Aditya again. Anu asks her to call her. Malini does. Anu says she will keep her phone here to let Malini hear Imlie’s conversation. She goes to Imlie’s room and hides it under a table cloth.Narmada apologizes Tripathis for the problems they faced today. Pankaj asks not to say that. Aparna says Imlie’s ways are weird and reminds Radha how Imlie cleaned dining table, Harish remembers Imlie climbing a tree to get pure honey, Rupali remembers auto driver’s incident. Aparna says Imlie’s ways are different, but she always does things right. Narmada hopes Imlie stays at her house forever, then says Tripathis have first right on Imlie and she wants Imlie to enlighten their lives always.
Arpita asks Imlie to teach her lathi fight. Imlie says why should she need to learn when she is there to protect her and asks her to rest now and call her when she needs something. She walks out of Arpita’s room and notices Sundar standing there who asks if Arpita is fine. She says yes and asks if he came here to have an elbow hit on his back. He says he was concerned for Arpita and hence came to check on her. Imlie says she is there to protect Arpita. Their nok jhok starts and he calls her chipkali. She says he is insulting her. He says how can he. She smiles and greets him bye.
Imlie worried for Aditya thinks where to go and check on Aditya. She walks into store room and finds Aryan there. Aryan teary eyed asks what is she doing here. She says she had some work here and if she knew he came here to cry alone, she wouldn’t have come here. He wipes his tears and asks why would he cry. She asks if crying is only woman’s right, then if its sweat on his eyes. He says he has allergy. She says even he can cry if he has pain as he is also a human. He apologizes for behaving rudely with her. She says she doesn’t mind as its his usual behavior, etc. Meethi calls her. She goes to her room to speak about Aditya. Aryan walks in. She changes topic and asks how is her camel.
Anu and Malini hear her conversation over phone and think what she is talking about. Meethi says she is confused, Aditya is resting now and was blabbering her name. Imlie disconnects call. Aryan asks her to rest now as she needs to attend office tomorrow and walks away. Imlie notices Anu’s phone and realizes she has kept it there to spy on her, thinks now she will show what spying really means.
