Abhi walks out of the room. Simran is despondent. Brian enters her room and finds her rolling her shoulders. He asks her what is wrong, whether the guys who just left have anything to do with it. She says nothing is wrong. He asks her whether the dinner with Janet is still on. She confirms it. Meanwhile her receptionist calls her to tell her that some Rachna has come. She asks her to be sent in.
Simran apologises to her that she could not come to her office. Rachna tells her that she knows how busy she is and that is why she has come to her office. She wants Simran to help her in choosing the Achievers award. Rachna tells her that she has transferred the entire process of choosing the entries that came via post and e-mail in a CD so that she can see the process for herself while sitting in the office. Simran watches a clip of the CD and both discuss about the no. of achievers there are. Rachna explains that out of all these entries an eminent jury formed of people like Simi Grewal, Birla, Tata etc will choose 5 out of the lot. Rachna tells Simran that she must keep herself free for the day of the award function. Simran does not promise but says she will try.
Simran comes to Brian's home for dinner. Brian opens the door. She enters and asks whether they can go. Brian tells her that they can as soon as Janet comes in. Just then Janet wheels in her chair and both are surprised to see her. She is looking very pretty. They praise her. Brian then goes to get his wallet. Meanwhile Janet presents Simran with a painting. It is a beautiful painting of a creeper. Simran is surprised to see Janet's talent. They go for dinner. While they are eating they see Manas enter the restaurant and ask for the table he has reserved. He then sees the Simran group. He and Brian greet each other and praise each other's work. Brian introduces him to Janet and he and Simran exchange a curt greeting. Brian asks him to join them but Manas says he is waiting for someone and goes to his table. Simran is looking like someone who desperately wants to talk to Manas but is holding back.
Manas gets a call from Ria who is very late and is in no mood to drive an hour and half to come to dinner. So they decide to meet mid-way. Simran is listening in to the conversation. Manas then gets up and goes without any byes.
Neha and Abhi are sitting in bed. Neha is consoling Abhi that it does not matter that Simran is not taking part in their campaign. He can do wonders on his own. Abhi is very upset because he is not able to understand why Simran is behaving the way she is and that is what is upsetting him. He walks out of the room.
Manas is sitting on the steps in Ria's house with his head in her lap. She is asking him to go to his house since Sonu is all alone. He is about to get up when the phone rings. Ria picks up the phone. It is from her daughter's minder in the USA. Ria is upset after hanging up the phone. Manas enquires and is told that Chavi is in the hospital. She has been taking drugs. Manas tells Ria that he will go along with her and they will take Sonu with them too. Ria is happy to have him with her to support her.
In the morning Manas informs Sonu that they are going to the US. But he does not tell him why inspite of his asking. Sonu is happy and he calls up Simran to tell her the news. Simran is happy for Sonu. But after hanging up is wondering aloud why. Brian is in her room and asks her why she is bothered about other people so much. Why does she take everybody's problems on her head. She says that it is strange that he is taking Sonu since it is not even his school hols. Brian tells her that Manas is old enough and there must be some reason why he is going. Simran says yes, it is possible.
Abhi is in his room and a call comes. He picks up the phone. It is from Dr. Revathy's office. Her receptionist tells Abhi to inform Neha that her appt. tomorrow is cancelled since the doc is busy. Abhi confronts Neha (Poonam is sitting there too) on who is Dr. Revathy and what is Neha's relationship with her. Neha tells him that she changed her doc. Abhi is wild. He screams at her and asks her why. Poonam explains to him that it was Simran's decision. Abhi walks out.
Brian is just leaving Simran's office, when Abhi barges in and asks Simran what is she afraid of. Is she afraid of facing him. If she does not want to talk to him, it is ok. But why abandon Neha and the unborn child days before the delivery. Simran tells him that there is a reason. She is the one who suggested that Neha change her doctor. How can a woman trust her life and that of her unborn child's in the hands of a woman who is the other woman in her life. Abhi is taken aback and tells her not to talk nonsense. Simran tells him that it is true and the truth will not change by his shouting. She, Simran, has become the other woman in Neha's life. She is destroying her life by coming in between her husband. Abhi is completely speechless.
