ishaani eyes her stranded fingers, while shaurya gives attention to diya. ishaani gets irritated. urmi suggests that its a good time, and they should all go to shirdi. he complies, thinking it would be good for diya. he asks damini and ishaani to get ready. damini deneis to go. he turns to ishaani. ishaani says that she doesnt believe in worship and all. Shaurya says that he shall be there with her. but she asks him to carry on, as its his birthday and he should celebrate it the way he wants. He asks if she sure doesnt have other plans for him. she denies, and then he leaves. damini again instigates ishaani, that when she wanted to celebrate he didnt, but when diya wanted to, shaurya instantly agreed, and that this was what was her fear all along. Ishaani says that she is right, as shaurya has changed a lot. damini is relieved.
In the room, ishaani searcehs for her laptop charger frustratedly, while damini comes in saying that she shouldnt take out her frustration on things. Ishaani tells damini that diya isnt shaurya’s gf. damini says that diya isnt, then he cares so much, then what if she becomes the gf. Ishaani is frustrated. Anirudh hears this from behind the doors, while damini saying that shaurya isnt her blood brother too, as he is samrat’s son. she says that they dont love or care for her. She says that neither shaurya nor urmi loves her, and they both just enact to love. ishaani leaves in a huff. Anirudh comes in angrily, and hollers at her for being so callous, and becoming such a lowlife, while she listens least bothered.
She shamelessly says that she has no shame, and she shall break this relation. She asks him not to react, as he forced her to do this. she says that she shall, as the property is ishaani and hers only. She tells him that the decision is his, if he includes shaurya in his will, then she shall continue like this, and if he doesnt, then she might think about her motives again. she leaves. Anirudh is tensed.

She says that due to diya, she cant m,ove around in the house, cant move out of the house, and its suffocating, to escape which she had made this plan, but has to cancel it too due to diya.
Diya sits tensed. Urmi asks ishaani to listen and stay low for only some days, but ishaani rudely asks her to shut up, as she isnt talking to her. Shaurya reprimands her for talking to urmi like this. damini thoroughly enjoys this, as ishaani against her mother and brother is exactly what she had wanted.

Diya stands speechless.

When shaurya is shown the goons’ faces, he is filled with boiling rage, as the men look at him shamelessly, with no regret in their eyes, as they stand behind the bars. She remembers the two men, from the Paan Stall, and tells this to shaurya. The police asks them to get diya so that they may proceed further. They go back and get diya to the station. As she sits, shaurya composes her, that they need to be strong and do this, so that they can get ahead with the judicial procedures. She agrees. they are brought. she is asked to identify. She looks up and remembers the nightmarish incident again, completely shaken.
She gets up and faces them. urmi gets up, but shaurya stops her. Diya gets up in aggression and slaps them tight, finding whatever she can to hit them, while shaurya and urmi desperately try to keep her back. She starts screaming that these are trhe people who raped her. Shaury and urmi are apalled. The police asks them to calm her down, and the constables take the goons away. urmi gives her water, while she is shaken.

She says that diya shall now stop ruining her family and its ties anymore.
She again asks her if she shall go for sure. diya is sad and distraught as she hangs her head down low. she says that she cant suffer her anymore, as her culprits have been caught, she would have to leave the hosue. she says that if her family doesnt approve, so what, she can stay in a hotel and guest house as she shall give her whatever cash she neweds, but just asks her to get out of the house at any cost. She tells that being a modern, independant girl, she shall definitely find a way in the world, or get a good guy, as this nightmare shall become a thing of the past soon. She asks her not to make her fold hands, and understand clearly, that she cant stay here as she wont let her, and leave asap. Diya stands speechless. damini leaves disgusted.
Location: Urmi’s residence
As all retire for the dinner, diya wishes everyone goodbye, and then retires to her room. damini points to ishaani that this is her dress that diya is wearing. Ishaani says that she knows, and hollers at the maid for having the guts to do so, without her permission. urmi jumps in for her defense, and says that she didnt, but urmi herself gave the dress, as diya had nothing to wear, and she specially gave diya the dresses, that ishaani never wears anymore.
Ishaani asks her how dare she touch her wardrobe without her permission, and gave her clothes, irrespective of the fact that she wears them or not. urmi asks her to relax, as she never wore them. ishaani asks her not to try and be smart, as she alwqays talks about mannares, and if these are the manners, that she profusely professes, that she sneaks in her cupboard, and gives her clothes to diya. Sandhya tries to make her understand, but she doesnt listen. then shaurya asks her to stop talking like this, but ishaani spews her venom against him too, saying that she can see he is blinded by his concern, love and affection for diya, that he has completely forgotten about his own sister.
She says that his change in behaviour is unmistakable, ever since diya stepped in, and diya occupies his mind day in and day out, so much so that she has been completely ignored, and he doesnt even realise that his sister is sad. She says that she feels that this house has become diya’s and they are guests. Shaurya tries to reassure her by touching her, saying that it isnt so. Ishaani jerks his hand away saying that indeed it is. Shaurya and urmi are shocked, while damini is happy at her victory finally.
Anuridh intervenes them, trying to tell ishaani that she has misunderstood shaurya as he is just trying to be a good friend, to diya, and is helping her out. But ishaani asks him politely not to step in as she doesnt wish to argue with him. She continues that she cant do anything in her own house, the way she wants them, and that just because diya was raped, doesnt mean that they should altercate their lifestyle to suit hers.
Due to diya, she says that she is scared that tomorrow shaurya might just ask her to leave the house. He is shocked. damini smiles. ishaani leaves for her room, hastily. all are tensed. Shaurya goes after her. Urmi says that she is sure, he would mend the situation, as he has the genes of his father, Ishaan. Shaurya goes to her room, while ishaani asks him to go away as she doesnt want to talk to him. he says that he has to, and sits in her knees. she again taunts that diya isnt here and hence he isnt needed here. she is crying.
He says that she knows he cant see her crying, and asks her to stop. He wipes her face, and realises his mistake, saying that he apologises profusely, as he was overtensed for diya, but if she goes sad, then where would he go, and what would he do. he says that he loves her immensely and cups her face, saying that there’s nothing more precious or over her in his life, and nothing matters more to him. She is affected. She says that he knows how much she loves him, but felt that diya became important than her in his life, and thought that she was losing him.
he asks how can she even think like that. they both apologise and get on good terms yet again. he hugs her, and again gets to teasing her, saying that she can do whatever she wants, and go wherever she wants, but just let him make the arrangements. she happily complies. Urmi comes in just then, saying that she cant find diya anywhere in the house. shaurya is shocked, and immediately rushes out, but doesnt find her, and wonders where is diya. He dials her number, but she doesnt pick it. Ishaani is tensed too.
