The bull appears from nowhere in the palace when Sitara and Padmini are doing puja. Everyone else runs helter-skelter. Padmini and Sitara stand up. Sitara realizes it is her mother’s plan. Padmini asks Sitara how to tackle this bull. Sitara tells her to close her eyes. She prays to Shailputri Ma to help them. Bull is Nandi ji’s avatar. Please help us, Ma. Padmini tells the bull to move aside. She tells the guards to shoo the bull away but they are very much afraid to face the bull. Padmini shifts just before the bull can attack her. Vermilion spreads on the floor. The bull destroys palace property and even hurts people.
Sitara stands facing the bull. You can do anything but I wont let you create an obstacle in my puja. She throws vermilion on the bull. Padmini asks her to move aside but there is a Shivlinga on the floor created because of the vermilion. Sitara smiles as the bull stops in his tracks. She asks the bull to join them for the aarti. The bull looks at the shivlinga and then disappears.
Vrinda shouts angrily. Sitara has foiled my plan by controlling the bull! She is about to break the idol but her sisters stop her. It will mean doom for us otherwise!
Sitara apologizes to Devi Ma for shifting Dhaan (paddy / rice) from the temple.
Vrinda is still positive she will win the game. You might have won the move but you wont win the game. I promise this to myself and Mahamata! Just wait and watch!
Padmini asks Sitara who is behind all this and why. Sitara tells her everything about Vrinda and her sisters. Padmini asks her how she found out about this. Sitara agrees to tell her this at the right time. Right now I have to sow this Dhaan here so as to save it from Vrinda. Padmini agrees to help her. Vrinda can find out about this too. Sitara tells her to guard the diya lit in front of Devi Ma and stays back to safeguard the Dhaan.
Vrinda refuses to let Sitara win every time. She has created a shield around herself so we cannot figure out where she has hid the Dhaan. Her sisters ask her what they will do now. Vrinda says 8 days are still left. Till when she will hide from us? I wont let her puja complete!
Yamini regrets accepting Albeli’s offer. Arjun says this was why I was telling you to stop but you were acting like a complete fool. No one will believe us because of what you have done in the past! Yamini tells him to stop scolding her and think of a way out. Arjun thinks of Sitara’s words. She did warn us against Vrinda and her sisters but we dint listen to her! She is the only one who can save us. She seems to be powerful than these people. Yamini wonders why Sitara will help them. Arjun says she is a nice human being unlike you. I will talk to you. She will listen to me!
Viraj wakes up and is shocked to realise it is noon time. Why was I sleeping till noon time? Where is Sitara? Diya starts crying. Viraj lifts her in his arms but goes through the same experience. Sitara is about to give him Prasad but Diya drops it. Sitara takes her from Viraj. She makes her lie down in her pram again. She notices Viraj weak again and looks at Diya. She holds out the bowl of Prasad for Viraj. He sips it. Sitara wonders how he calmed down suddenly. What’s affecting him so much? She looks at Diya intently. She recalls how he got shocked once when he had lifted Diya in his arms. She pushes the thought away.
Vrinda tells her sisters to wait. Sitara has kept a fast where she cannot drink anything. She chants a mantra. A ball of fire appears from the diya. Vishkanya’s start feeling thirsty and drink water. Vrinda pushes the ball out in air. I will see how Sitara completes her fast now!
Sitara offers Prasad to her MIL but she asks her if she trying to rub salt to her wound by reminding her she cannot do this puja. Sitara shakes her head. I came to call you to do puja with me. Let’s do this puja together for our family’s sake. We need to pray for the wellbeing of our family.
Surili asks Vrinda what if Sitara sees this ball. Vrinda tells her to use her brain sometimes. This will be near Sitara but she wont be able to see it!
Lakshmi refuses to do puja with Sitara. Go away. The ball of fire appears above Sitara’s head. Sitara starts feeling heavy as she walks out of the room. Why am I sweating so much suddenly? She is even feeling thirsty and has trouble walking. Arjun and Yamini approach Sitara. He asks Sitara about the bull incident but Sitara seems to be lost. She passes out in their arms. Arjun takes her to her room with Yamini guiding them. Viraj panics seeing Sitara’s condition.
Vrinda says Sitara will have to drink water to stand back on her feet. Her fast will break this way! They laugh.
Viraj asks Arjun and Yamini about Sitara. Arjun says we were talking to her when she passed out. Yamini points at Sitara’s dry lips. Arjun adds that it is because of extreme dehydration. Viraj thinks to bring water but Yamini reasons that Sitara has kept a fast. She has vowed not to drink water! Viraj retorts that it does not matter. No fast is greater than her health. He brings water for Sitara.
Vrinda sips water. Now Sitara’s fast will break!
Viraj moves the glass near Sitara’s lips.
Padmini adds oil in diya and starts reading Durga Chalisa. Sitara wakes up and pushes Viraj’s hand away. He is relieved to see her fine. Why did you throw the glass away? She shares that she wont break has fast before sunset. He reasons she wont be able to pull it off. Your entire body is dehydrated. She assures him she will take care of herself. Even Yamini shows concern but Sitara stays put. Viraj refuses to let her keep fast in this condition. Sitara says I have faith in Ma. She will give me the strength to keep fast. Viraj walks away in a huff. Sitara lies down.
Vrinda shouts angrily that her plan got foiled again. I wont stop though. She asks her sisters to create a hindrance in Padmini’s puja. I will plan my next move. They nod.
Padmini is praying when strong wind starts blowing. She covers the diya and continues with her chants. Vishkanya’s make cracks in the floor using their powers but Sitara comes just in time. She turns the cracks towards her Massi’s. They fall down in shock. Padmini turns to Sitara. She tells her to keep chanting. I will manage everything. Padmini happily continues with her chant. The ball of fire is pushes away from Sitara. It surrounds the diya. Vishkanya’s fail in stopping their prayers and give up.
Sitara sits next to Padmini. This diya is safe now. She tells Devi Ma she is doing this fast to protect her husband and family. I don’t intend to hurt anyone. I just want to keep everyone safe. Vishkanya’s have turned Viraj into a Vishpurush. I have only 9 days to save him. We will lose him for forever if I don’t succeed in these 9 days. Please give me strength. She looks at the wall clock. The sun will set in 20 minutes. Please help me, Ma. The ball of fire is right above Sitara’s head. She feels extremely dehydrated.
Yamini asks Arjun how Sitara will help them when she herself is so weak. Did we make a mistake in choosing her? Yamini notices Lakshmi passing by from there and offers to help her. Lakshmi looks at her pointedly. Yamini apologizes to her. I fell in their words and misbehaved with you! I am very sorry. Lakshmi forgives her. Yamini tells her not to do all this till the time she is here. She takes the thaal from Lakshmi. Did you forgive me from your heart? Lakshmi pats at her cheek. You are like my younger sister. Why wont I forgive you? I hope that from today onwards you will only do what’s right for our family. Yamini nods. Arjun looks on.
Viraj is disturbed thinking about Sitara’s state. Vrinda calls out to Viraj loudly. Bring out the Vishpurush from inside. Come outside. Viraj stands up. He lifts Diya and holds her hand. He is again jolted with poison. He turns into Vishpurush. Diya claps for him as he walks out of the room. Viraj enters in Vrinda’s room. She announces that his transformation is complete. In the next 8 days, he will gain powers with which he can kill someone like Sitara! Before that, he will have to do what I will tell him to do! You have to feed water to Sitara before sunset at any cost!
You only have 10 minutes to make it happen. Sitara should not be able to complete her puja! Viraj leaves. Albeli remarks that this time Sitara wont be able to say no. Surili insists that Sitara can have a upper hand over Viraj but Vrinda is sure Sitara cannot harm Viraj at any cost. She will listen to him even if he tries to force her to drink water. She cannot hurt him under any condition!
Viraj / Vishpurush growls at Sitara. Padmini and Sitara look at him in shock. Padmini is afraid but Sitara holds her hand. She asks Viraj why he has come here. You should go. She tells Padmini to continue her puja and steps in front of Viraj. Viraj / Vishpurush picks the kalash and tries to force Sitara to drink water. She tells him she wont drink water as she has kept fast. Let me go. Don’t compel me to use my powers. She ends him pushing him away from her. Don’t be stubborn or you will see the worst! Leave. Viraj / Vishpurush disappears. He actually starts running around in speed. Sitara prays to Ma to help her. She holds her head feeling dizzy. Viraj / Vishpurush appears behind her and tries the same tactic again. She warns him again to stop. She recalls something and points her mangalsutra at him. Viraj / Vishpurush passes out on the floor. Sitara is in tears seeing Viraj’s condition.
Vrinda says Sitara succeeded in defeating Viraj also. He still has human emotions inside him. He loves her till today. He got affected when he saw the mangalsutra. It wont be the case after 8 days though as he will become a heartless Vishpurush. He will become our puppet! He will be our most powerful weapon. He wont have any hint of Sitara’s husband left inside him.
Sitara thanks Ma for helping her. Viraj has not turned into a Vishpurush completely yet. My vermilion and mangalsutra revives the goodness inside him. I want to keep it alive inside him forever. Help me always just like you helped me today, Ma.
