Sameer comes to gayatri, and says that he has been angry and shall always be, as he always felt their love as pretense. she says that its not possible. he says then how could they have given him up so easily. she says that it was just the relatives. he counters if she could give uday, and she says that he is their only son. sameer says thats what makes him feel like a stephany, and he always feels that he has never been loved, and no amount of convincing shall make him believe otherwise.
The next morning, gayatri comes to rahul, and finds him working in the kitchen. she taunts him, and sets him aside to help him. she wonders where is rita and ila. rita meanwhile is taking care of ila, who hasnt eaten anything, and is developing high fever, as ila goes into a self victimising mode, that she deserves this, for having pained their son so much. gayatri comes and asks her not to do this. rita says that she cant take meds too, since she is hungry. gayatri says that she shall get sameer and make him see this. ila holds her back saying that he isnt at fault. gayatri tensedly leaves. she goes out and calls sameer, to tell him about ila’s situation. he gets tensed hearing this.
As govardhan comes in, he finds ila sitting tensedly, and the food plate lying like that. he reprimands her for not eating, and asks her to stop this immaturity, as there is a puja in the house. he says that she shall sit. he screams that she isnt okay, and asks what good would this behaviour solve, and asks if it shall chnge anything. he asks rita to give her food. ila asks him not to scold her. he asks if he too should do the same. she says that its their right. he says that scolding is their right then. they both sit down emotionally. as govardhan starts crying, she says that its their right too. rita eyes overwhelmed. he tells ila that the ultimate darkness absolves when she smiles, and he cant see her crying like this, and how would he handle himself. she asks him not to cry, as she is already depressed. gayatri asks her to talk with sameer over the phone. ila composes herself, and starts talking. he asks what should he say, that he was lying, and apologise. he says that they cant change anything, and asks her to have food and get better. she says that she wishes to say that he shouldnt hate her so much, that she almost dies. he goes unconscious. they are apalled. he is upset over the phone as to what happened.

In the temple, niranjan and rahul are busy decorating, when they are releived that ila is better and eveything is okay between her and sameer. they are uptodate with the preparations. inside, govardhan talks to sameer, that he might have kept it inside him all this while, but this means a big deal. sameer asks him not to think, that he has forgotten everything. govardhan says that he understands. he says that there is something that he cant tell ila, but he needs to tell him. govardhan hears intently.
