The Frontliners 2 September 2021: Ishani asks Aman where did he go leaving Sanjivani? He stays quiet. She asks what is all this? He says it’s all happening because of him. She tells him to say clearly. His phone drops. She picks it up and sees his and Asha’s marriage photo on his phone.
He says sorry to her saying he was scared, he didn’t know what to do. He apologizes saying because of him, her and Sid got separated. He’s very bad. When Asha needed him most, he ran away. He didn’t know what to do, he wasn’t ready for it. She asks that means that child is his and Asha’s. She is heartbroken and feels guilty for mistrusting Aman. He says he came to meet Asha, but couldn’t gather courage to go in front of her. He asks her to forgive him. Sid comes there. Aman sees him. He takes his phone back from Ishani and runs away before Sid sees him.
Sid comes to Ishani and asks she is okay? Ishani smiles thinking this means Sid never betrayed her, whatever he did was to save Asha’s respect. She tells him that she is absolutely okay now because finally she learned the truth. The truth of Aman and Asha. He is shocked. He looks away from her. She was about to touch/hug him and he gets text message from Asha about some emergency. They both leave.
Shashank asks Juhi that Asha is pregnant and Sid is father? She says yes and she is also as shocked as him. He says these children are uncontrollable. Anjali doesn’t listen to him and keeping relation with a wrong person. Sid and Ishani are like his children. He doesn’t get why Sid did this. Juhi tells him to look for happiness that he got from children, not sorrow. They are doctors and they fight to save lives, but sometimes, they have to fight with the lives themselves. He thanks Juhi for making him feel better. She then invites him for a coffee date in night saying she’ll pick him up.
Asha is having pain in stomach. She asks nurse, she will be okay, right? Sid and Ishani come rushing there. Ishani says nothing will happen to her or her child. Asha gets emotional and hugs Ishani. Ishani calms her down and takes care of her. After nurse leaves, Asha asks Sid, so he told everything to Ishani. Ishani says he didn’t tell her. Aman told her. Asha says he didn’t get scared now and cries. Ishani tells her that he’s also very disturbed and asks what’s the matter exactly? Sid says that night he was coming to her when she invited him for the date. He wanted to do something special. Just then he received a call from Asha who thought she called Aman. She was saying not to leave her else she will commit suicide. He tried to call her back, but her phone was off. So he decided to go to her and check she’s alright.
Asha cries and says unintentionally she came between Sid and Ishani. Back to flashback, Sid enters Asha’s room and sees her on floor with blood coming out of her wrist. He does the aid and saves her. He then reads suicide note of her.
Asha says she couldn’t face her father like that and couldn’t see any other way. She swears she didn’t know Sid would sacrifice his happiness for her and that is why she shared her sorrow with him. How her child would be able to live without father’s name. He has gone though the same and he decided to give his name to her child. Ishani smiles looking at Sid and seems to be feeling proud of him.
Asha tells Ishani now she must be wondering why they didn’t tell anyone about their marriage. It’s because before Sid could talk to Ishani or anyone else, she found out that her father along with villagers learned what she did and were coming to her. She cries and asks Ishani to forgive her for ruining her and Sid’s relationship. Ishani tells her not to cry. Ishani then turns to Sid and says whatever he did was right. She knew she didn’t love wrong person. She tells him not to be sorry, be proud. She is with him in his decision. Both look at each other. She slowly starts walking away. Sid says in his mind that he didn’t want to hurt her. Vardhan disturbs them. He says he just came to see Asha and then says bill will be on Sid’s name, right? as he is her husband.
Ishani walks away. Vardhan then tells Sid to take care as so much has happened with him lately. Sid thanks but says he doesn’t need his advice. He leaves. Vardhan laughs and says Sid doesn’t know what’s going to happen with him.
Juhi tells Shashank whatever happened wasn’t right, but now they know why Sid did all that. Why he’s worried still. Shashank says they are like his children, he has to be worried. During such times, a woman suffers the most. It needs a lot of courage to take such bold step. Rohini sees Shashank and Juhi. Before they see her, she hides.
Ishani enters the elevator without knowing Sid is there. Everyone gets off the elevator and them two are alone. She is coughing. She takes some tablet, but is unable to control her coughing. She chokes. Sid helps her by grabbing her and helping remove tablet. They both have teary eyelock. She then gets off and walks away. Shashank tells Sid to make sure his personal issues don’t affect his professional life. He has to find balance between his personal and professional life. Sid says he will try. Shashank tells him that he has one more responsibility. Ishani has gone through a lot. She deserves to know what’s going on inside him. He can try to make her a friend at least. After Shashank leaves, Sid says in his mind that he wants to talk to Ishani because she is suffering and so is he.
Juhi and Shashank are in a cafe. Juhi tells him not to think too much. Sometimes they have to go with the flow of life. He says not sometimes, always. They think they control their destiny, but that’s not true. He thought she deserves to know what he feels for her, so he told her. Sometimes, he thinks he should have told her before surgery. But he was afraid to lose their mutual respect. She says she lost her ‘humsafar’, but now she doesn’t want this support to be lost ever.
Neil and others have gathered for Diwali celebration. Rishab tells Sid and Asha to do first diya as they are a newlywed couple. Sid and Ishani look at each other and wish all this was a dream and a lie. They wish everything was like before.. they could be celebrating together instead standing separate.
