Viraj and Ratan notice Sitara carrying a sack with her and ask her why she looks tensed. She lies that everything is fine. She avoids looking them in their eyes. The snake bites her repeatedly as they talk. She is feeling dizzy because of it. Viraj asks Sitara what is inside the sack. The snake bites her again. She lies that it has her childhood memories. Viraj notices tears in her eyes. What happened? She replies that she is missing her Baba very much. Ratan says I know I cannot take Kuldeep’s place but I will try to fulfil the place of a father in your life in Kuldeep’s absence. Sitara walks away confusing Viraj. Ratan says it is her wedding and none of her parent is around. It is good that Vrinda took the responsibility of the wedding or Sitara must have felt alone.
Sitara comes to a secluded place and releases the snake. She notices the bite marks on her hand. She feels dizzy. Vishkanya’s come there in their real avatar and glare at her. Sitara walks up to them. I have defeated you guys so many times that this victory does not make me happy. I pity you on your defeat. How could you think you will bring out my truth in front of everyone so easily? Stop this enmity and do your duty as my mother and Massi’s. There is a lot to do. Let’s go. Vrinda glares at her as she goes.
Someone knocks at Arjun’s room. He sits up excitedly hearing her name. He flirts with her. Why did you hide your beautiful face inside the shawl? Yamini fumes. She tells Arjun she dint want anyone to see her. I wanted to meet you so I came here. He asks her to sit down and sprays deodorant. He notices her face as she peeks at him. She asks him if there is a problem if she sleeps her tonight. He acts to be offended. How can you even think of this? I am a married man! How can a married man be with someone else like this? Please leave. Yamini confronts him. You were flirting so nicely until you saw my face in the mirror. I wont spare you! She stomps away.
Next morning, Viraj’s haldi ceremony is going on. Rani Sa says I cannot tell you how happy I am. May God bless you with every happiness. Padmini applies haldi to him next. Ratan hands over the ancestral sword to Viraj. You and Sitara have to handle the responsibilities of the house very soon. Rani Sa says now I will apply Viraj’s leftover haldi to Sitara. Viraj checks the sword. He asks his father if Vishkanya’s exist. Do they have some connection with our ancestors? Ratan shrugs. Coincidentally, Vrinda ji was saying the same thing to me. I have asked a few people to find out about it. Samrat tells Viraj to concentrate on his wedding. Ratan seconds him.
Rani Sa compliments Sitara. First haldi is applied to the bride by her mother. Your mother isn’t alive. If you don’t mind then I would like to apply haldi to you first. Vrinda requests her permission to apply haldi to Sitara first. I regard her as my daughter. Rani Sa agrees. Vrinda’s actions create suspicion in Sitara’s mind. Vrinda leans closer to Sitara. I am your real mother. I have this much right. She applies haldi to Sitara. May you have a happy married life. Rani Sa, Yamini apply haldi next followed by Sitara’s Massi’s. Vrinda gives juice to Sitara. Sitara drinks it on Rani Sa’s request. Surili also insists. Sitara is sure they are up to something. She takes a few sips after which Vrinda takes the glass from her. hands that glass to Rani Sa. There is a ritual in our family where the MIL of the bride has to drink juice from the same glass from which the bride drinks.
Sitara worries that Rani Sa might die because of her poison if she drinks it. Vrinda wonders how Sitara will save herself now. Albeli and Chabeeli discuss about it. Sitara throws the glass away before Rani Sa could take a sip. Everyone looks at her in shock. Yamini asks her if she does not want to strengthen her relation with Rani Sa. Sitara nods. I cannot let an elder drink from my cup. I will drink from her glass instead. She pours juice in another glass and offers to Rani Sa. I will drink after you. Rani Sa pats at her head lovingly. She drinks half of the glass and Sitara drinks the rest of it. Vrinda and her sisters look on unhappily.
Padmini dances with her brother and Sitara. Vishkanya’s dance along. Surili dances around Viraj but he ignores her and holds Sitara’s hand instead. Viraj takes Sitara aside during the dance. She feels shy. He pins her to the wall and caresses her face. She caresses his face in return. They lean closer. Sitara looks at him.
Sitara is crying looking at Kuldeep’s photo. I don’t know if my decision is right or wrong but there is no other way to save Viraj from Vishkanya’s. the consequence can be very bad. I am vishkanya. My every particle can be dangerous for Viraj. I am marrying him but I wont be able to do my dharma as a wife ever. I am wearing the mangalsutra of his name but I wont be able to give him his happiness ever. I am snatching his biggest right, his happiness from him. He will never be able to become a father. I am missing you very much today. Wish you were here! You would have guided me then. Vrinda says what if your Baba isn’t here. We are here to guide you. Albeli helps her get ready. Sitara looks at them in confusion.
Vrinda offers to help her get ready but Sitara warns her against it. We share nothing. This is called tit for tat. Vrinda agrees. This was destined to happen. I did not realise that we cannot change destiny and have decided to be a part of your wedding. I dreamt of making you a bride the day you were born. How could I let go of this opportunity today? You look so beautiful as a bride. Chabeeli tells her not to cast an evil eye on Sitara. Sitara asks them what they are up to. Albeli says Sitara is just like her mother. She cannot trust anyone easily.
Vrinda tells sitara she is going to be in deep sleep very soon. You are going to make such a big sacrifice for your Massi. We can do this much for you. Sitara begins to go but Surili comes there dressed in the exactly same attire. Vrinda blows something on her face. Sitara shouts Viraj’s name as she passes out on the floor. Vrinda remarks that now Surili will marry Viraj.
Padmini reminds Viraj that he dint get engaged to Sitara. You are marrying her without an engagement! Viraj realises the same. Padmini gives him a ring. Give it to Sitara. Viraj is pleased and thanks her.
Surili paces happily in the room. I have to fulfil my mission so I can bring Viraj’s child in this world. Viraj jumps in through the window. Surili stands there with her back to him. Viraj says one has to do so much when they are in love. I have to roam around stealthily in my own home. Why aren’t you looking at me? Surili is panicked. She mimics Sitara’s voice. Rani Sa has told us not to see each other before wedding. He nods.
Padmini made me realise we aren’t actually engaged. I came her to make you wear this ring. He is standing right behind her at this moment. She covers her face hurriedly using a dupatta kept on the bed. Please leave. This isn’t right. He turns her around. Will you be shy in front of me now? Look at the ring. Surilil calls it wrong. Viraj says I have been waiting for this day since so long. We are going to become one finally. I had been waiting for this moment since so long.
Sitara wakes up muttering Viraj’s name. she recalls how she came here. I have to get out of here. The door is closed. How will I go outside now?
Viraj takes out the ring. He is about to lift the dupatta when Vrinda and Chabeeli enter. What are you doing? You could have waited for a little longer. Viraj tells them why he had come here. Vrinda holds Surili’s hand and asks him to do it. He wants the dupatta to be lifted but Vrinda suggests telling Rani Sa. He happily agrees and puts the ring on Surili’s finger. Vrinda congratulates them. Viraj thinks he cannot wait to see his bride.
Sitara says I cannot let Massi marry Viraj. She starts shouting Viraj’s name. Albeli thinks to quieten her to so one can hear her voice. She goes inside and tells Sitara to be quiet. She hits Sitara. She turns into her Vishkanya avatar angrily. I will not let you guys succeed. I will save Viraj at any cost. She hits Albeli who is thrown off guard by her attack. Albeli chants the usual mantra and her head turns into that of a dinosaur. This time Sitara is having a hard time battling Albeli.
Rani Sa shares that it is a tradition in their family that the new bride will take 7 rounds around the temple. Vrinda gets worried for Surili. We are already feeling awkward. Rani Sa tells her to begin. Surili is about to step on the stair when pundit ji points out that it is to be done bare foot. Vrinda wonders how to stop it from happening.
