While Chiku is about to spill the truth, about Shaurya’s love for Diya, Shaurya stops him. Chiku again asks how did it happen so suddenly. He starts teasing Diya, while Shaurya is upset. Damini asks Chiku to help Shaurya for the arrangements, while he says how can the groom help. Shaurya stuffs sweets into Chiku’s mouth, and shuts him up. All comment why Shaurya do so but he says that Chiku talks too much while Urmi says that Diya and Sumit are made for each other couple. Chiku asks who. Urmi again says Sumit is the groom. Chiku is shocked, and eyes Shaurya, who waives his head in a no.
Later in his room, Shaurya is again asked by Chiku, to present his case, but he says that it’s a gone case, and she is engaged already, and it’s too late now. Chiku says that if he doesn’t tell, then he will go and tell Diya. Shaurya vehemently denies it. Just then, Diya comes in asking why he didn’t tell her anything. He is scared while Chiku stands tensed. She comes in asking why he didn’t tell her, if he was hungry. Shaurya is surprised and relieved too, that she didn’t hear anything. He says that he was, but not now, as he doesn’t feel like it. Chiku says that he is upset at his marriage. He says that the truth is Shaurya doesn’t say anything. Diya asks what’s it. Chiku says that he is upset since she agreed to marry Sumit. Diya is tensed and asks if he doesn’t like Sumit. Shaurya says that it’s nothing like that as she likes Sumit, which is what matters, and asks Chiku to shut up. He says that he will, if he speaks up. Diya asks what’s it. He fumbles and says that it’s nothing, and blurts out that they are all sad, including him, that they are habituated to her, and hence when she leaves, they would all be sad and cry. He again composes him, saying that she has become of this house only, and they would remember when she goes. She gets emotional too, saying that her fate is weird, after her parent’s separation, she met them, and when they accepted her, she has to leave them too. He tries to cheer her up, saying that before she goes, she should get him to have food, as he is hungry. She complies. Chiku is tensed though.
At Akash’s residence, Ishaani comes there and wishes him, while he says that he was only waiting for her, and then composes himself saying that he has gotten habituated to her. He asks what’s it. She says that she wants something from him. He says that the entire country wants something from him. She asks him to accept the gift that she has brought. He asks why. She says that she just felt like it, and asks him to open it. He complies and opens it to reveal a smiley face inside. He smiles, and she says that’s exactly what she had targetted for. He philosophically says that even though being in a bad mood, he was able to smile and thanks her. She blushes. He leaves, and then turns back, saying that it would have been good had she met him before, as his life would have been different. He leaves. She is lost in his thoughts, thinking that she too wants to be in his life.
At Sumit’s residence, Damini comes with the shagun, to Sumit’s house. They welcome her. They find the Shagun plate empty. She asks how come it’s empty. Damini laughs along with them, as they all burst into guffaws of laughter. She says that she finally did what she wanted to. Sumit applauds his acting skills, and Damini says that they too did superbly, and thanks them for doing what they did. Sumit asks what’s the plan ahead. Damini says that she plans to end Diya’s remaining life. She asks them to arrange all the marriage preparations, and rituals, and she would be dressed as a bride too, and after that, the whole city will be there along with the media, except for Diya’s baraat, and she would be jilted at the altar, by her groom. She starts laughing, imaging Diya’s marriage and the drama that ensues, as she would turn her so helpless and sad, that she would commit suicide, in front of the whole media. Sumit applauds her yet again, for this brilliant plan. Damini tells Sumit and his parents in their house, that she tried a lot for Diya to leave, but she just didn’t budge, and now she too won’t budge. She says that hence she planned for her marriage like this, so that she ultimately leaves. Sumit and his parents smile evilly. Damini says that Diya will have to go from her house, either alive or dead. She says that now Diya will leave the house, dead, on four shoulders for her last journey.
The next morning at Urmi’s residence, Damini personally oversees all the arrangements, and when Rani asks if there would be festivities and celebration, Damini evilly says that there would be. Alok comes and says that he has finished with his part. Anirudh and Urmi join them too. Damini says that he should invite everyone in the city, and there should be no deficiency. Alok comments that Damini is interested in the marriage, and she says that she is just doing what a mother does. Anirudh says that he has decided that he will give Diya hands in marriage. Damini thinks that he should do the funeral rites infact. He asks where Diya is and gets to know that she has gone with Shaurya to the temple, to seek the lord’s blessings.
At the Temple, Diya performs the puja with Shaurya, while the priest blesses her. Diya tells him that she is going to get married, and wants the goddess’ blessings. The priest complies. Diya prays that she doesn’t know what’s written in her fate, and whether what’s happening, is good or bad, right or wrong, but knows that she is doing this for Urmi and Shaurya, and has the faith that she won’t allow anything bad to happen to her, she prays to be protected. He then gives her a bangle to wear and she complies. Then he gives her a thread. The priest says that if she ties the thread to the tree outside, after turning it three times, then they will be together for years, as a couple. Diya is awkward, while Shaurya is surprised. They both look at each other tensedly. She clarifies that he isn’t her husband. The priest apologises for his misunderstanding.
As she decends down the temple stairs, Diya sprains her ankle, and then sits down, wincing in pain, in the temple stairs, and says that she won’t be able to do this ritual, and asks Shaurya that they should go home, while he attends to her. She is embarassed and asks him to let be, as she is okay. Shaurya says that if this ritual makes her strengthen her bond and reminds her what the priest said, then she would do it, and he would help her in that. Diya is surprised, as he takes her in his arms, while she is taken aback. A romantic yet awkward eyegaze follows, while she lowers her gaze, in blushing. He keeps her in his arms, while she performs the ritual, all in his lap. She eyes him tensedly, as he tries hard to compose his emotions.
At Akash’s residence, while Ishaani descends down the stairs, Akash who is sitting on the sofa, is giving dreamy heroic dialogues, that make Ishaani feel like he is saying those for her, but finds that he is merely rehearsing his lines. He comments that she is looking very beautiful. She tells him that Diya is getting married, and gives him the invitation card, and tells him about the details. She asks if he will come, since he appreciates Diya. He says that he will come if she likes it. She says that today is the haldi, and after 3 days it’s her marriage. Akash says that he would fix his schedule for her. But just then, his wife comes in and says that he will not go any where or to any party. He asks her not to create a scene, as she works for him. She asks Ishaani to stay in her limits ofa servant, if she works for him, and not try and get personal. He asks his wife to stop overreacting, and take care of his reputation. She says that she is doing this only for that sake, and then continues to demean Ishaani, asking her not to lure him into any traps. He says that she just came to invite him. She asks why was he invited alone, as she as his wife should have been invited too. She says that today she came to the house, to invite him, tomorrow, she will invite him to the bedroom. Ishaani and Akash are outraged. She asks Ishaani if this is what she wants, and asks her to get lost, or else she will calls the security. Ishaani leaves hurt while Akash is tensed.
At Urmi’s residence, Amidst merriment and festivities, Diya goes through the haldi ritual, while Shaurya is unable to take his eyes off her, as he eyes her lovingly. All enjoy and dance in celebration. Diya too eyes Shaurya, as he goes into a dream sequence, of having his haldi ritual with her, and they both enjoying the romance. They are both drawn out of their dream as people enjoy. Chiku comes in and alerts Shaurya, and he takes his eyes off her. Damini eyes Diya evilly, and thinks that soon her entire glow will turn down. She asks Urmi to scrape off the haldi that’s to be sent to Urmi, and then Sumit’s haldi will have to be put on Diya. Urmi cmoplies, pointing out the importance of the rituals. Chiku tells Shaurya that if the love is true, then the bride leaves at the altar too, and that there’s still time. He asks him to stop messing with his head, and shut him up, and further warns him to stay out of it. Urmi gives Diya’s haldi to Rani and asks her to give it to Sumit’s mother who’s upstairs with Damini. She complies. Rani accidentally collides with Shaurya and the haldi spills on Shaurya. All are surprised. The ladies comment as to how this is a weird coincidence, that the bride’s haldi is to be put on the groom, but it went on Shaurya instead. Urmi asks Rani to take off the rest of Diya’s haldi and take it up. She complies. Shaurya is too shocked to respond. Chiku thinks that even the god wants them to be together and asks Shaurya to take this sign as God will. He eyes Diya who is tensed.
While in her room, Damini celebrates her vicious plan with Sumit’s mother, who gives her her own, her husband and her son’s passports, so that she can get the visa done, and they can get a holiday in Europe for a month. Damini dramatically portrays to the groom’s mother, that she is already envisioning Diya dressed as a bride, jilted at the altar, utter humiliated and disgraced, in front of the entire media, much to her evil relief. She says that she started this story, and she will see to it that it ends as per her plan too. She says that she had promised she would finish off Diya, and by the end of the marriage, she would kill Diya too. The groom’s mother is amused too. Damini who plans to humiliate Diya to such an extent that the consequences would be fatal says that this was her revenge, as Diya is an idiot now, and might have guts but not good fortune. She says that Diya doesn’t even know what came and hit her, as she is preparing for suicide and not marriage. She is asked how is she sure, that Diya will commit suicide. Damini says that she will see to it, that the story goes according to her plan. Meanwhile, Rani overhear this from outside the room, and is appalled, and shocked. She wonders what to do about it. Damini eyes Rani hearing in the mirror, and rushes after her. Rani who overhears Naina and Damini talking about there plans immediately rushes to warn Urmi. Rani comes down meanwhile, and Shaurya finds her tensed, asking what the matter is. Rani says that she has something urgent to speak to only Urmi madam. She tries to search around for Urmi. Anirudh too asks what the matter is but she doesn’t tell anyone. She keeps searching for Urmi. Finally, she finds Urmi and says that she has something very important to speak, but before she is able to say anything, Damini comes in, and asks why she didn’t give haldi yet. Urmi asks what she wanted to say. Rani keeps trying to say something but Damini holds her hand and stops her, asking if she will give the haldi, or they send her off too. Urmi is boggled to find Rani so tensed, as she has no option but to go to give haldi to Sumit’s mother. Damini is relieved but still furious.
In her room, Diya is lost as she remembers Damini’s threat. Urmi, along with Anirudh and Shaurya come in. She is surprised. Urmi asks her to decide on the jewellery that her father-in-law Anirudh has specially designed for her. She is overwhelmed and says that it wasn’t needed. They ask her to select and not be formal. She starts crying in front of Urmi and Anirudh, Shaurya asks Diya if she is unhappy with this relationship. Diya breaks down into tears and says that she isn’t. All are shocked. They ask her not to feel like a stranger to them, as they are linked since they consider her as their daughter. Diya says that she is lucky she got their love and concern as a family. Urmi asks her not to cry, while Anirudh jokes that she would need them when she leaves the house. Anirudh and Urmi leave when Diya smiles. But shaurya stays behind as he still finds Diya tensed. He comments that she isn’t happy still. She fumbles, but he sees through it, and says that the bride’s glow is something else, which is not visible in her eyes. She blurts out that she has no other option. She says that she isn’t happy, but happily lucky. He then points out that the first good guy, and she decided to get married, after one meet. He says that it’s a wrong decision. She says that he is a good guy who came forward to marry her, knowing her past. Shaurya says that he is coming forward right now, and asks if she would accept him, as he is a pretty good guy. he asks her if she will marry him. Diya is shocked.
Diya is speechless at Shaurya’s weird demand. She asks what’s this question. He asks her to answer as if anyone had come and proposed to her, then would she have accepted his hand in marriage. She says yes. He then extends his hand. She says that she is already doing so, as Sumit is a nice guy, and she doesn’t want to listen, feel or understand anything else now. He controls his emotions and then walks out, bidding her goodnight. She is extremely upset herself.
In her room, Damini ties Rani with ropes, threatening her what was she trying to tell Urmi. She asks what’s uUrmi’s problem, that all worship her as the goddess. Rani asks what has Diya done to her. Damini shuts her up saying that she doesn’t have to give her explanation and then gives vent to her frustration. Rani says that Diya is gutsy, and won’t commit suicide. damini threatens to kill her, but she continues to raise her voice and say that diya shall never commit suicide. Damini tells Rani that if not by suicide, then by murder, but she would have to die. Rani is shocked, and then pleads her not to do anything to Diya. She asks Rani to shut up, and be here till the marriage is done, and after that she will be sent to her village. She warns her not to open her mouth. She leaves with Sumit’s mother, while Rani is upset.
