She nervously searches for Avni in every room of the hotel and then finds a room slightly ajar. Her search ends when she finds Virat with a towel around his body in a room while Virat is taking out hard drinks from the mini bar in the room, in a bathrobe. She comes inside, and is about to speak but Bhavna’s fear further rises when she sees Avni’s ‘dupatta’ lying on the sofa. She is dazed and left speechless. Virat continues to play mind games with Bhavna and gives her a leering smile, and yawning, making her think the worst and the unimaginably heinous crime. She is shattered. She slaps him and begins to reprimand him for being such a brat.
Just then, Anjali comes in asking what’s she doing. Bhavna is shocked to find Anjali and Madhuri there too. Virat says that they came here for booking the honeymoon suite for Avni and Raj and wanted to know if Avni liked it. Anjali keeps demanding an answer, and Virat too instigates Anjali that he didn’t do anything, but Bhavna got the wrong idea. Virat then says that maybe she thought bad for him, and hence apologises. Anjali asks Bhavna how can she even think that Virat can do something like this. Virat asks Anjali to calm down and tries to be the bigger person by forgiving her.

Virat asks Vikram to calm her down, also adding that he doesn’t know why Bhavna hit her. Vikram decides to teach Bhavna a lesson and storms out. Virat smiles evilly. Raj meanwhile asks Arpita, as to how would he propose to Avni. Arpita says that he can’t propose as they can’t interact with each other. Raj says that he would do so indirectly, and that he has a plan, and asks her for her help to get Avni out tomorrow. Arpita complies. Raj is happy as he plans to properly propose to Avni with the help of Arpita.

Vikram accuses her of doing this. Bhavna tells him that Virat is a scumbag and is betraying them all. But Vikram refuses to accept anything, and says that he won’t listen to anything against Virat. Vikram adds that if this marriage is happening, it’s only due to Virat, and for all the betterment in his life, after that tragic night, Virat is responsible. She turns around and says that if he doesn’t have belief on her and her words, then why did he come here. Vikram tells her that she would have to apologise to Anjali and Virat. She agrees that she would apologise to Anjali, but never to Virat. She begins to go inside. vyikram threatens to expose everything, if she doesn’t relent. She stands speechless. He begins to go inside, but he begs her not to. Vikram then gives her the phone, and dials Virat’s number. She apologises to both Virat and Anjali, for having slapped Virat. she cries, while he warns her not to do something like this ever again. He leaves, while she resignedly sits on the stairs. She wonders what trouble beckons tomorrow.
As Arpita takes Avni outside, Raj gives her a call, and Arpita says that she is outside and would talk later. Arpita springs up on them, from behind Avni. Raj tries to talk to Avni, but Avni tells Arpita to tell him that she can’t talk to him. He tries to explain to her the futility of the rituals, and tries to make her feel guilty that he is being ignored due to some stupid ritual. Avni closes her eyes and is least bothered. Just then, Avni is shocked to get a facebook status from Raj that he is enjoying his bachelor party with lots of girls. Arpita is amused, while Avni is furious. They find that Raj’s car is actually placed where he has been claiming. She decides to go and teach him a lesson, but stops midway. Arpita asks what happened. Avni says that she doesn’t want to fight with him, and asks if only he is nervous and she is not. She leaves in a huff.

The next morning, Anjali is still tensed about the whole incident, while Madhuri takes over the preparations. Virat comes asking Anjali if she has any problem. Anjali expresses that Bhavna is so simple, then why did she behave so rash yesterday. Virat asks her to forget as after all she apologised, when Vikram went to talk to Bhavna, and asks her to forget it all. Anjali asks when did Vikram go. Virat apologises for having let his tongue get away. Anjali tells him that something is going on between him, Vikram and Bhavna, and makes him swear to tell her the truth. Virat decides to reveal the reality about Bhavna to Anjali and as a result, Anjali finds out who Bhavna really is as Virat tells her about her true identity that Bhavna is actually Sangeetha from Umadh Gaon and not really Bhavna as she claimed. Anjali gets shocked, while he is amused whether this news about Bhavna’s identity will bring the marriage to a halt.
In the courtyard, as Bhavna awaits Anjali’s arrival with her plate of shagun, Anjali reveals the shagun in front of Bhavna and shocks Bhavna when she shows her a newspaper dated long back that has the article about the Umadh Gaon incident involving her of the horror tale by showing her picture too. Anjali tells her that she now knows her true face and reality that Bhavna is Sangeetha. Bhavna is shocked, as Anjali holds up the newspaper to her. She says that now she knows that she is the lady who spoiled Vikram, and can now put the pieces together referring to what the priest saw. She goes on to accuse her for all the sorrow in her husband, Vikram’s life and scarred him forever. She says that Bhavna was more than a friend to her, but now that she knows her true identity and what she did, she hates Bhavna and is disgusted by the fact that Bhavna says that she doesn’t know what’s her fault.
Bhavna says is willing to take blame and accusations, and requests her to not to let her mistakes come in the way of Avni’s marriage with Raj but Anjali refuses to go on with the marriage saying that she would never let her son, Raj, to get married to her daughter, Avni, and that she doesn’t ever want to see her face ever again.

At Banquet Hall, Raj and Arpita get inside the hall, wondering whats Avni ia upto and what’s she doing. He enters in a dark room, and is boggled as a flashlight falls on him, with a heart shaped cake kept on the table. Avni springs up on him, saying that she knew Raj was upto something, to propose her, but she wanted to say something first. Raj is surprised and seems extremely pleased with this gesture by Avni that she organizes a surprise date for him. Avni says that she has never seen a guy like him, and praises him to be wonderful and amazing, and that her heart demands her to propose to him. Avni gets down on her knees, and proposes to Raj filmy style, with a bouquet of roses, asking him if he would marry her, confessing her love to him. He too bends down and complies, caressing her and then they both get up, while Raj is teary eyed and emotional. They hug each other. People clapping around them and the lights coming on, embarasses Raj and Avni. They begin to go, but are pressured into a kiss by a couple standing there asking them to kiss each other but Avni feels shy and embarrassed and tries to escape, but Raj holds her hand. She gets nervous and turns around to face Raj shyly, as he eyes her romantically. She closes her eyes, and puckers her lips, waiting in anticipation and nervousness, Raj leans in close to her, but then walks past, to the mirror behind her, and kisses her reflection instead. Avni is overwhelmed and Raj says that they should reserve the actual kiss after their marriage. Avni blurts out that she can’t wait any longer and then gets flustered. Raj says that after marriage, he would make her first kiss very special. They both hug, while Arpita smiles.
At Avni’s residence, while Suket is taking care of the arrangements, Bhavna on the other hand, walks in tensed and then joins her family, she continues to be worried about the discussion she had with Anjali and Anjali’s barbed comments. Avni offers to help Arpita for laying out the dining table, but she is asked not to as she would be very special tonight, as it’s her last day here. Bhavna sees this and is tensed, as she is scared for Anjali’s reaction and how Avni is being pampered, by her family members this being her last day here. Bhavna breaks into tears. Avni sees her mother crying but does not realize the reason for which she is crying. She then composes her, asking her brothers to take care of her mother after she leaves, and fulfill all of her wishes. Suket asks her not to worry as they would take full care of her, as she is prime priority. Avni gets emotional too, while Bauji asks Avni to remember all of Bhavna’s advises and upbringing, as they would make her successful in life. Avni too tells her mother that she learnt everything from her, and wants to fulfill all relation with honesty, just like her. Bhavna is apalled, as Avni places her as her idol. Avni begins to hug her mother, but she scurries to her room. Bauji thinks that she got emotional, foreseeing the pain that would be due to her separation tomorrow. All get emotional. The brothers try to cheer her up successfully.
At Raj’s residence, Anjali confronts Vikram why didn’t she get to know from him, about Sangeeta’s reality. Vikram says that he didn’t want her to be tensed, and even if they knew, what could they have done. Anjali says that Bhavna is her accused too, for having done what she did in Umahgaon, and for having ruined her husband’s life. Virat comes in to overhear their conversation while discussing about Bhavna’s case. Vikram says that he hates her the most, but he can’t let that affect his son’s happiness, as Raj loves Avni very much. Virat comes in saying that this is true, but they would have to accept Avni and that Sangeeta is her mother. Virat asks Anjali and Vikram, what’s the matter, if Bhavna is the murderer (Sangeeta), of the Purohit Family, and that Vikram cringes everytime he looks at Sangeeta, for the sake of Raj, they would have to go through this trouble and just then Raj enters the room and almost hears them asking what trouble are they talking about. All stand tensed seeing him. Virat says that they are talking about his marriage. Raj gets baffled and asks them what’s the problem that they are talking about. Virat says that he has the maximum problem with his marriage and gives it a joking angle, while Vikram and Anjali are relieved. Raj says that he differs as he is very happy that he is getting to marry the love of his life, and that he is in seventh heaven right now and also advises his uncle Virat to get married too. He leaves, while Virat, Anjali and Vikram are tensed.
The nex morning at Avni’s residence, Bhavna prays to the lord, to prevent Avni’s love from Virat’s evil eyes. Avni comes in and asks her not to be sad as she would be in this city. She blesses her to be happy always. Avni says that she is the most important to her, as she knows that her blessing is so powerful that nothing wrong can happen to her. While Bhavna and Avni are talking, Virat walks in, saying that Avni is absolutely right. Virat greets Avni and then asks Bhavna if she can call Suket. Bhavna is tensed and asks why. Avni asks her to relax, as she is super tensed for the marriage. Virat says that she should be, as anything can happen anytime. Bhavna watches him irritatedly. Avni asks how come he come here unannounced at this time. Virat says that they had to come for a ritual that had to be done. He also announces the arrival of Anjali and Vikram, who walk in stoically, shocking Bhavna at this new turn of events. Virat thinks that this is just the beginning, and that Avni’s marriage would scare her so bad, that Umatgaon’s fatal night will fade in her memory.
Avni’s residence, the ritual begins, while Virat exclaims that Bhavna seems tensed. Suket says that Anjali and Vikram too feel tensed. But Virat wards it off. Arpita asks her father-in-law Suket and Bhavna to wash off Vikram and Anjali’s feet. Suket performs the ritual, and then asks Bhavna to do it too. Bhavna tries to take part in a marriage ritual and begins to do it but Anjali stops her saying that she can’t do this with Bhavna. Virat is pleased while all are tensed. Virat asks Anjali to get it done as it’s a ritual. But Arpita and others assume that Anjali is stopping Bhavna as she respects her too much. Both Arpita and Avni say that since their father Suket has already done, she doesn’t need to go through it all over again. Next, gifts are exchanged and Avni received them. Vijay tries to insult Bhavna and so includes a ritual which in real does not actually exist and stops Avni when she is about to offer them ( gifts ) to the temple saying that the bride would have to drink the water in which her in-laws wiped their feet. All are shocked and Avni is tensed, while Suket asks if this is actually required. Virat says that so is the ritual in their village. Vikram and Anjali are surprised but stand quiet. Virat asks Bhavna how important it is, and asks for the descision. Bhavna is tensed, and then goes to collect the water and then gives it to Avni, apalled from inside. Virat smiles, as Avni is about to drink it, but is stopped by Suket. Suket too trick the Purohit’s family saying that since they didn’t believe in the rituals much, and they did all rituals in their own style, but he doesn’t want this to be done, and asks them to respect it. Anjali agrees. Virat asks them to leave as it’s getting late. They all leave, while Suket thanks them yet again. Bhavna is tensed, as Virat smiles at her.
Outside, Bhavna calls out to anjali and confronts her, saying that she knows her very well, and that Vikram and Anjali are very good people, and she knows that maybe she won’t be forgiven for the past, but since they love Raj, they are not calling off the marriage, and hence she is assured that they won’t do anything wrong to Avni. Anjali taunts that Avni is her daughter, this itself is a curse and she doesn’t want Avni to bear more. They leave. Virat comes to her amusingly and says that she wants this marriage to be done, so that his purpose is complete too, and once Avni comes to his house, after marriage, she would have no one to turn to, and would fall in his trap. She warns him not to do anything with her daughter, and assures him that Anjali and Vikram won’t let him do anything wrong to Avni. Virat says that it would happen when anyone would belive Avni, and that Avni is her daughter, and when the time for a decision comes, they would all remember her mother’s past, and think that like mother, like daughter, she too has a habit of lying and they would instantly believe him ( Virat ). She says that Avni is going to a place where she would be hated due to her, and then she would have just one life support, her own uncle, i.e Virat. He adds that then he would have his chance. He leaves, while Bhavna is tensed, as she eyes the marriage preparations and feels that her daughter is not save in Raj’s house with Virat around her. She says that she knows what needs to be done. Bhavna realizes that the only person that can help her now is, Raj and decides to take Raj’s help in order to avoid the damage that Virat can cause in the marriage as only Raj can take her out of the situation, as he loves Avni very much and can protect her.
