Location: Wedding venue
Dilshad reminds asad that after all, he is his father’s son. Dilshad says that the upbringing might be the best, but still that cant change the colour of the blood. Asad is deeply hurt while all are shocked. Dilshad asks zoya to come along, while she is crying. The girls pick her up and take her from there, while Tanveer is pretending to be embarassed about it. Rashid motions ayan to come along, while he jerks off his hand to be with asad. Asad looks at rashid venomously. Dilshad leaves with a resigned sigh, and starts walking upto tanveer, who starts crying. As she leaves, tanveer stops her, but dilshad says that only asad is not to blame and what sin has been done, she is equally to be blamed for that. While tanveer is silenced, dilshad leaves. Tanveer too leaves after her. Ayan comes to asad, who is in tears. asad asks to be left alone. Ayan hugs him tight. And finally leaves. Asad, having clutched on to Zoya’s dupatta, is distraught and in tears.
Asad comes to dilshad’s room, and slowly approaches her sitting on the bed. Asad says to dilshad that she knows that she’s angry and doesnt want to even talk with him. He tries to keep his hand on dilshad’s but she stops him with a stern face, surprising him. She takles asad by the hand, and leaves him outside her door, and slams the door on his face. Nazma is in tears seeing this.
Location: Ayan’s residence
badi bi is tensed that people might have come, but noone is talking, and she is very scared. As Rashid arrives, she impatiently asks what happened. Shirin comes down with a resigned sigh. She faces them, and asks sarcastically how was the function, and how they had gone without telling her. She reprimands him for going to the function, of the woman, who is destroying their life, and their happiness, and asks if he enjoyed the function of that lady’s son’s marriage. Rashid, with his children in tow, tells shirin that she won the bet, and that Dilshad’s son didnt get married before her son, and that she won. Shirin is upset. He asks her if she’s happy now that she has won the bet. As rashid leaves, shirin is shocked.
The girls discuss that they cant believe that asad can do something like this. Nuzrat says that boys dont care for emotions and love. Humaira says that not all boys are like that, and there must be a reason. They wonder about what zoya must be going through right now. Ayan comes in and asks if anyone thought what would asad be going through right now. Nikhat says that she regrets saying that he himself is to blame for this, and he took a wrong step, and zoya has to bear its brunt. Ayan refuses to believe that he knows him more than himself, and that he cant break the heart of the girl he’s gonna marry, and maybe he didnt want to marry zoya. Humaira asks if he didnt want to marry, then why didnt he say so. Ayan says that some relations are not based on love, but helplessness, and slowly they are so engulfed that they dont know how much they are deep into it, and there’s no way out. They just have the option, of pretending to the world that they are happy, without showing their suffocation and sadness to anyone around, and having a drama about it in front of the whole world. Seeing ayan speak so passionately about a person who doesnt want to get married, humaira is shocked, and wonders if he’s talking about himself. Ayan too realises this and composes himself, but its too late.
The next morning, ayan is trying asad’s number and is tensed when he doesnt pick up and hopes that he’s okay. Humaira comes in with coffee, and a smiling face. But ayan asks her to keep it and he would have it. But humaira persists as he hadnt eaten anything, and looks tensed too, while he’s busy in other stuff. He jerks her hand off, thereby breaking the coffee cup, and surprising her. She runs out of his room. As she rushes outside the door, she runs into someone, and is surprised to see razia. Shirin and badi bi too are surprised to see her. While humaira is surprised, shirin is happy, badi bi is tensed seeing her. Razia says that she’s back, and that none of the tests had anything wrong. shirin is happy. Razia says that some might be ill now, and that she’s perfectly fine now. She sees humaira tensed and asks what happened, and if she’s okay. Humaira runs to her room. she remembers all the incidents of ayan’s rude behaviour recently, and his outburst.
While ayan is playing the guitar, she says that she always loved him, and therefore never pressurised him into marrying. She says that he asked for her hand, and why did he do that, if he didnt want to. She asks to answer if he truly loves her. Ayan asks whats the matter. she says that she doesnt want the relation to be laid on the foundation of a lie. Ayan says that he’s very tensed right now, and that he wants to be left alone, for some time. Humaira says that her question too is equally important, and she needs to know if he loves her. Ayan is speechless, but says that she is focussing herself on unnecessary bothering. when humaira continues to bother him, he breaks up saying that he doesnt love her, never has and never will. The screen freezes on humaira’s shocked face.
