The episode begins with Mahi calling Sikandar to inform him about his mother’s ill health. He plans to leave immediately from his work trip but Mahi assures him she will take care of his mother, the same way Taimoor would have done in Sikandar’s absence. Meanwhile, Romana calls Sikandar but his phone remains engaged.
Sikandar returns soon and Mahi explains to him that she hasn’t mourned for Taimoor properly and it’s all of that pent-up emotion that has taken a toll on her.
Sikandar’s mother is livid when she sees Mahi in her room. She screams at the maids and summons Sikandar who explains to her that Mahi has been taking care of her in his absence. But she remains unbothered by it.
Naheed brings a plateful of sweets to Farhad’s home and breaks the news of her marriage with tears in her eyes. She says no one asked her what she wants and sealed her fate while she watched silently.
Rasheeda, the mansion’s maid, visits the faqeer of the shrine. She brings him food for niyaz and asks him to come to the mansion to pray for the family’s well-being and Sikandar’s mother’s ill health. The faqeer asks her to give the food to Farhad who is sitting in a corner and says he will have to come to the place because it has become important now.
Mahi continues to look after and tend to her mother-in-law who can’t stand the sight of her. She makes it a point to make her annoyance with Mahi evident for others.
While Mahi falls asleep in her mother-in-law’s room, she sees Farhad in her dream. Farhad, who is at the shrine, touches the bead that fell off Mahi’s dress which he now wears around his neck in an amulet. Mahi hears Farhad’s last words to her once again and wakes up startled.
Rida shows up at Mahi’s in-laws’ house to surprise her. She is surprised to see Mahi’s state. Mahi says the old Mahi is lost and this is her reality now.
Sikandar meets Romana who asks him to marry her and take her with her. He says his home is under his mother’s jurisdiction and is wrapped in chains of caste, creed, status, and position in society. His mother will never let this happen. She says she is ready to become a servant of his and will be happy with however he keeps her. She then breaks down and Sikandar comforts her.
Rida explains to Mahi that everything that happened to Taimoor wasn’t her fault. Mahi explains she was the cause for it. She also says she hears Farhad’s last words in her dreams. She isn’t faithful to her dead husband and there’s no one worse than her. Mahi says two people loved her. She couldn’t be with the first one and the second one couldn’t become hers.
This episode was more about Mahi being an exemplary daughter-in-law against all the odds stacked against her. The last scene that’s referred to above was the highlight of the show according to us. We got to see the pain and anguish Mahi is in. Brilliant performance by Iqra Aziz and superb dialogues.
