Mamma opens the door and welcomes Mauli’s parents and Mayank. Dida was happy that Jyoti came here forgetting everything. She asks about the children, Mamma says they are at clinic. Jyoti turns around to see Nandini in the kitchen. Dida says Nandini started cooking classes. Jyoti was curt that Nandini came with complete planning to mark her influence on first guest room, then kitchen, later the house and society will also become hers. Nandini brings Papaya halwa and then aalu dam biryani for them, she taught them in cooking classes.
The men appreciate the coking. Jyoti decides to taste a little but couldn’t openly complement Nandini. Mauli and Kunal return home.
Mauli greet Maa, she requests her not to discuss about Nandini at least today. Everyone was curious about the occasion. Mauli says it’s a secret and everyone will know about it in a while. Jyoti was excited if it’s the good news. Mauli assures she will share any such good news with her even before Kunal. Kunal teases Mauli if he is also allowed to keep some secrets? Mauli teases Kunal he is allowed only if he can keep it, his eyes speaks all his minor cheatings as well like in the kitchen.
She tells the family that a few days ago everyone wondered where the kheer had gone, only she knew Kunal had eaten it all up. Later, Kunal distributes drinks in the balcony. Everyone cheers their drinks, Dida cheers it to the big secret, Deepak – to the secret that will soon be revealed, Mayank- to both Mauli and Kunal and their happy secret, Mamma – to the secret who will make Mauli the happiest, Mauli – to happy secrets and continued series of new beginnings, Kunal – to happiness in good health, everyone’s happiness and beautiful companionship, Nandini – to Kunal and Mauli. Only Nandini doesn’t sip from her drink. Mauli and Kunal take everyone to enjoy Pizza.
Inside, Kunal suggests Mauli to make special decorations on pizza. Mauli says her pizza is incomplete without it. Mamma’s pizza slice had a rose drawn over it.
Kunal explains like someone removes thorns from a rose, he has eaten mushrooms from her slice. He later serves everyone with special decorations, Dida’s slice had a smiley. He brings a special piece to Mauli. Mauli denies taking it as it must have some weird message, he must hand it to Nandini. Kunal hands the plate to Nandini. Nandini removes the lid to find a heard over it. Everyone was curious to know. Nandini hides the plate and with the lid removes the other half of the heart, Jyoti considers it a question mark. Mauli says this was for her, Kunal was curious to know the secret but she will only share it with him in time.
Nandini walks to the kitchen to reheat garlic bread. Kunal comes behind her but she leaves.
At night, Mauli comes to hug Kunal from behind in the balcony. He asks why she seems so happy. She says the day was really good. Kunal tries to ask her about the secret. Mauli says he will know about it in the right time. She takes Kunal to the room then reminds Kunal even she is here. She asks why he appears so lost. Kunal lies that he is fine. Mauli says she knows how to improve his mood. Kunal goes to get freshen up. Mauli asks him to come soon, she holds a lot of gifts for him today.
In the washroom Kunal thinks about Nandini burning her hand for him. He comes out where Nandini smiled during sleep. He caresses her thankful for her to continue spread her smile everywhere. In the kitchen Nandini was taking water bottle from fridge when she finds the flame in temple corner going low. She comes to save it from going out, Kunal comes helping her. Nandini was shocked to see him close. Kunal says he knows the reason of her worries, he wanted to speak to her. He will never take any step to hurt the residents, even she live in the house now. She always look nervous and tensed, and he is aware he can’t even speak about the matter to anyone including her friend Mauli. If he is the reason of her worries, he won’t even come in front of her anymore. Nandini doesn’t reply. Kunal vows not to confront her anymore. Nandini begins to speak but notices that Kunal had left already. She cries.
At the breakfast table, Mamma asks Mauli about Kunal. Mauli says Kunal had something important to do and left earlier, she will send her breakfast to clinic. Nandini thinks about his promise to not confront her if she dislikes. Later Nandini hear Mauli speaking to Kunal that he will be home late at night. The next morning, Mauli tells Pramilla that Kunal left earlier even today. Kunal sat in the hospital, Nandini hear Mauli concerned for him as she speaks on phone and asks how long her body will bear so much of stress?
It was fifteen minutes past five. Nandini wakes up, hurries to kitchen and prepares tea and breakfast, packs it in a tiffin serving it on the dining table. She cautiously goes to her room before Kunal came outside. When Kunal had left, she notices the tiffin and tea were there on the table. She hurries towards the main door but before she could gather the courage to open the door, Kunal had gone to the lift.
Later, Mauli brings the tiffin for Kunal in the hospital. He says he was really hungry and thanks Mauli. Mauli calls his thanks a very dry one and serves it as Nandini cooked his favorite soft bitter gourd. Kunal makes up that he had to meet Sharad in half an hour and leaves the office. Mauli hands him the tiffin to eat with Sharad. Later at night, Nandini finds the tiffin on the table, still untouched.
At home, the family was together. Mauli says she is really tensed for Kunal. Mamma understands that Kunal has lost his hungers, it’s the biggest sign that there is some tension. Mauli was concerned that he is even getting insomniac, and leaves so early then returns home even late. Dida was tensed that she is already dependent on others, what if someone else falls ill. Nandini hears this all and was concerned, she thinks the distance Kunal has kept between himself and her is good for them and Mauli, but the family is tensed. She decides to speak to Kunal and comes to her room. Kunal was busy in hospital, he answers the call but there was no reply. He wonders if its Nandini, then signals the nurse to leave but only wish Nandini speaks to him on phone. Nandini was only left crying. Her cell phone begins to ring, she cuts Kunal’s call.
At night, Mauli had fallen asleep when Kunal comes in. She sits in bed and asks how long he will enter his own bedroom like thieves. He has lost his hungers and sleeps, what’s the worry. Kunal says he is a little busy, she needn’t worry. Mauli insists he has lost his smile. Earlier, his smile reached home before him, but now he is tensed for some reason. Kunal tells Mauli not to worry at all, even ask the family not to. He has to fulfil an old commitment, an old responsibility but it completely fine. He goes to change as he must leave early morning tomorrow as well. At night, Mauli was leaving for an emergency. Nandini and Mamma were worried as the weather conditions were really worsening outside. Mauli insists she has to save innocent lives, they must bless her. Nandini hands her a bag with fruits and food for her. Kunal comes there, Mamma says Mauli has to go to hospital for emergency. Kunal wasn’t ready to let Mauli go alone in such a bad weather and goes to drop her.
Mamma informs everyone that Mauli is safe at hospital. Kunal was leaving for work, the ladies forbid him go to work as all the schools and offices have been closed. Kunal insists people out must be looking for doctors. Dida convinces him to stay back and only leave if there is a call. She complains to Nandini and asks him to convince Kunal, he might stay on her request.
