Firstly, damn the 'like' button!
Well, as I said, Abhay does a good job of masking his emotions. He's vulnerable inside but that neither shows on his face nor in his actions. I will not like to say much about anything else because you've so beautifully explained everything that I need not and have nothing to add to it. I'll just like to comment on the scene when Abhay takes Pia's foot to dip in the water. We could all see the upheaval in his heart, the inner turmoil. He was reminding himself again and again that he must not lose his control, he must stay focussed. Pia could not see that because he refused to show that side of him to her. He was caring and gentle and angelic yet he was cold and distant at the same time. Emotions were warring inside him, yet, he was talking to her as normally as he could. He asked her if he she trusted him as if it was such a normal question, he asked that to any Tom-Dick-Harry person everyday. But that was not the case. He'd only asked this question to Pia. He's slowly getting drawn towards her. As you said, its difficult to understand whether its her or her face which affects him so much, but he's slowly developing a soft corner for Pia as well. Thats the reason he went to the palace, hopefully, to search for Pia's pendant. Why else would he go to a place which holds countless memories and echoes of broken dreams, which pierce his heart even today? He did it for Pia, not for a doppelganger. Hopefully, this soft corner will soon intensify into love. Pia will pull him out of his dark world and alleviate his pain. She will rounden the edges of his broken heart in a way that it won't hurt him any more. He'll be able to cherish his memories with Maithili with a new ray of hope, with Pia by his side.
Sorry if I didn't make any sense. I was watching Jhalak side-by-side so couldn't really concentrate
