The episode opens with Vishaka inquiring with Dida about the dynamics between Pallavi and Prachi. She expresses her concern that Pallavi may not be fond of Prachi, simply because she is Rhea’s sister. Vishaka reminds Dida that Mihika is like a daughter to them, and it is their responsibility to ensure her happiness. Dida acknowledges that the relationship between Pallavi, Prachi, and Rhea is strained. Vishaka suggests that perhaps Pallavi’s feelings towards Prachi are influenced by who she is as a person. Dida suggests they leave before people start getting the wrong idea. Meanwhile, Mihika questions Mayank about his pursuit of her. He pleads with her not to play games involving her sister and insists on his love for her.
Mihika insists that I made a joke and did not agree to marry him. However, Mayank persists in suggesting that she marry Ranbir. Eventually, Mihika reluctantly agrees to the proposal. In a fit of anger, Mayank grabs her by the neck, causing Mihika to push him away and question if this is what he considers love. She firmly tells him that he is not worthy of her. Despite his professed love for her and apologies, Mihika refuses to forgive him. In an attempt to win her back, Mayank humbles himself and even rubs his nose on the ground as a sign of remorse. Defeated, he admits that he cannot bear the thought of losing her and grabs a knife, claiming that she is his whole world and he cannot imagine life without her by his side.
Vikram remarks to Ashok that they never could have predicted this unexpected meeting. Ashok responds that the unpredictable nature of life is often a topic reserved for women. Vikram agrees, adding that no one can predict what will happen in the next moment. Just then, Pallavi appears. Ashok informs Vikram that she wishes to speak with him. Pallavi leads Vikram aside and confesses that everything is not going well. She reveals her disapproval of Ranbir marrying someone like Prachi who lives in this household. Vikram chides her for dwelling on the past and asks why she’s determined to ruin things. As if on cue, Ranbir arrives and embraces Vikram warmly. Vikram greets him and inquires about his well-being.
Ranbir greets Vikram, who in turn announces that he has freed himself from the shackles of his past. Aryan suggests that Ranbir meet Pallavi as well. When they reunite, Pallavi warns Ranbir that he cannot marry Mihika. Confused, Ranbir reminds her of their recent meeting with Mihika, where everything went smoothly. However, Pallavi remembers Prachi and her rightful place as a daughter-in-law in their family and expresses how she cannot allow Ranbir’s marriage to take place here. Unfazed, Ranbir counters her concerns by stating his desire to marry Mihika and leave behind any leftover feelings for Prachi. He even shows the engagement ring he bought for Mihika. Pallavi nods her approval and Vikram compliments the ring on its excellence.
As Pradeep enjoys his drink at the party, he receives a message from Mihika. She is tending to Mayank’s injured hand and he desperately pleads for her to not leave him. He admits that he can’t live without her, especially after realizing his mistake of leaving her and getting married. However, Mihika corrects him by reminding him that it was he who left her, not the other way around. He begs for another chance to make things right and promises to take care of her and keep her happy. In hindsight, he regrets not valuing her enough and not showing interest in her family and friends. He sincerely apologizes for not understanding her before. Now that he is with her, he presents two options – she can either leave him to die or promise to stay with him. Moved by his words, Mihika melts down and embraces him as she holds onto his hand. At this moment, Pradeep arrives at the scene.
Mihika inquires, “How did you get here so quickly?” Pradeep explains that he was on his way when she messaged him, prompting him to join her. He mentions that Mayank is now married and their engagement is imminent, questioning what the two of them were doing alone in a room. Mihika suggests asking Mayank for an explanation and instructs Pradeep to handle the situation while she steps out to avoid any commotion. As Mihika leaves, Mayank closes the door and expresses his gratitude for her trust in his love for her. Pradeep expresses concern for Mayank’s well-being had anything happened while they were together. However, Mayank reassures him that Mihika would have taken him to the hospital if necessary. Seeking a plan of action, Pradeep asks, “What’s next?” Mayank advises leaving their other friends behind and focusing on this particular friendship as it could prove lucrative through marriage to Mihika.
Pallavi inquires with Ranbir about his interest in the engagement. He responds by expressing his desire to move forward in life, as Prachi has already done. He mentions his plan to get engaged to Mihika and is embraced by Vikram. Manpreet then asks Prachi to take the ring from Ranbir’s hand, which she does. Vishaka suggests they practice for the engagement beforehand so there are no issues during the actual event. However, Manpreet suggests skipping the practice and going straight to the engagement. Vishaka questions why he wants to cut her off and clarifies that she just wants to witness it. Manpreet then asks Prachi to bring Mihika over to Ranbir. Nervously, Prachi realizes she will be giving her love’s hand to her sister-in-law-to-be.
Prachi gives Ranbir and Mihika rings. Ranbir makes Mihika wear the rings. Prachi watches.
