The circus at the cafeteria
was continuing with a frozen teary-eyed Riddhima looking at her husband
Siddhanth with lamb-like tearful eyes , while sitting next to a
super-shweet looking Armaan. The mockery of marriage and pious vows is
continuing. The whole gang , irrespective of pro-Sid or pro-Armaan is watching
the drama with anxiety and clear discomfort. Sid is oscillating between
numbness , shock , grief and his eyes say it all. But the muscles on his face
do not move - No, I have no rights to stop any of it , the one who has is
sitting right there and what she says , what she decides and what she does goes
Saasumaa tells Riddz to take a vow with Armaan that she will abide by the duties of a dutiful wife. A wounded Riddz keeps looking at Sid with tearful eyes as images of her marriage with Siddhanth - vivid and in-you-face storm her mind. Armaan is beginning to see that something is wrong as you see the quintessential Armaan smile come and go from his face. Riddz -her whole energy , her whole consciousness and her every emotion being consumed by the whirlpool inside her - barely manages to mouth the words. Sue looks upset enough to beat up Sid at this hour but Sid sits like a tip of an iceberg , most of the mountain lying under the sea.
Then, the mockery tells Armaan to say that Riddhima has lent piousness/piety to his life by just being in it. And we go to Sid who remembers at this hour that when he had married Riddhima and brought her to his home - the whole ritual of 'Grihpravesh' and Riddz walking into his house with her lovely vermilion dipped feet. He looks back at Riddhima who is looking at him with a face that could crumble any moment. Riddhima - the flashbacks of her wedding to Sid and the promise that she made to him that she will do as he says. Armaan says what he has to under the effect of saasumaa.
And as the mockery of vows continues , Saasumaa asks Armaan to say that they will always be happy together. Armaan, consciously or unconsciously , looking at a breaking Riddhima says "Tum Hamesha Khush Raho"......and it strikes you immediately. Why did he say that? It could mean nothing or it could mean everything. Anyway.
And then, as a squirming gang and a numb Sid watches , Saasumaa holds a 'Mangalsutra' in Riddz' face and tells Armaan to tie it around Riddhima's neck. This stuns everyone - the gang is horrified and a scandalized JP pokes Sid to get up and put an end to this crap. Sid is boiling , it is visible but h sticks to his initial decision. It is all upto Riddhima - she is the one who has to swim her way back - he is no longer going to play the lifeguard here. It's her choice.
Armaan , realization of Riddz' frozen state seeping into his head holds the Mangalsutra to her neck and Riddz looks at him with tearful eyes and she imagines Sid in her place - smiling in the wedding attire and holding the Mangalsutra to her neck - Riddz' expression changes and you see a comfortable relief starting to come over her face as she sees Sid. But then, her vision clears and she realizes that it's Armaan . No! What am I doing here and what am I letting happen! Riddz pulls back with an emphatic 'BAS!'. What followed was the unveiling of relationships as they are and as they are meant to be.
A shocked , stupefied, punched-in-the-gut Armaan looks at Sid-Riddz in shock as Riddhima - tears running down her cheeks but determined firmness and relief on her face tells Armaan that she is no longer his basket , she is no longer the Riddhima Gupta he dated - she is Mrs. Riddhima Modi and Siddhanth is her husband. And her head held high ...still reeling under the shock of what just happened to her walks out of the circus. Sid - his on face ridden with emotion while Armaan struggles to seep in the truth - Sid watches Riddz go and he turns towards her , lifting a hand to stop her but doesn't go after her. It was good in a way because if you think about it, Riddz needs to be alone at this time.
Armaan - his feet tottering under the weight of the reality that Riddz just spewed about herself and Siddhaanth fades away from the cafeterias as Sid , pushed to the edge screams at his mother to shut up basically and stop repeating her Komolika lines. That is enough and more than enough, Mom! Whatever Riddhima did just right now was to stay with her husband and that is me! Riddhima is my wife and I am not going to hear another cross word against her. You have already insulted her enough . Armaan looks at Sid - the husband and goes away , not knowing where his feet are taking him.
Saasumaa tells the gang to leave as she wants to speak to Sid alone. The mother inside her taking over and the realization that what she has put her son through by making a mockery of Riddhima hugs her son. Sid , still under the shock of what has just happened and the weight of all the emotional turmoil killing him clings to his mom. He tells his mother who for a change listens to him with lot of love that Riddhima is his wife , his life and everything that is beautiful in his life . You know how I was, Mom. Irresponsible , bratty , careless , insensitive and what not. And then, Riddhima came into my life - she changed me and my world and whatever goodness that I have in me has come from her. The mother observes her son and asks him - You love Riddhima so much ? Sid nods and the concerned mother raises the most critical question. Does Riddhima love you, Sid? Sid looks back at his Mom with a realized expression - how do I answer that when i myself have no answer.
On the other hand, Armaan is walking through the busy corridors of Sanjivani like a zombie , dragging his feet so that he doesn't fall under the weight that that Sid-Riddz just placed on his shoulders. The reality of the SR marriage is still sinking in - his whole life with Riddhima runs through his numbed head and then, the reality that Riddhima told him echoes in his head. Armaan remembers nothing except Riddhima Modi. Nothing more and nothing less.
The gang has their own take on the SRA situation. While YuNa learn the lesson that lying and deceit lead to nowhere and that they should speak to Pappa about their marriage ASAP, Sue is struck how much her superboy Sid loves Riddhima and how tough all this must have been for him. Raj , who thinks life is all about winning and losing says that Armaan will not sit quietly is bashed up by Sue and JP that life is not a battlefield or some stupid game. Riddhima kept the sanctity of her marriage because she wanted to and to her , her relationship with Sid is no joke....
Later, Riddhima Modi breaks down in front of God and cries out that Armaan, I did what I had to. It is not that I did not love you, It is true that I could not live without you but as you can see , time and destiny had other plans..... totally other plans.
In the precap, we see a wounded Armaan spewing venom at both Sid-Riddz. I know it looks and sounds ugly on Armaan's part on the surface but you can see where Armaan is coming from. He is yet to deal with the reality and know what Sid-Riddz have been through and why they are together. I love the punch he delivers to Sid in the precap and how he confronts him. Gotta watch it!
Love and luck to everyone always,
God bless everyone.
