OK I didn't see the episode. Just got back and have to rush off again. All I can say, even though it may sound highly hypocritical, is that it's a slap in the face for sure. I mean here we were hoping Viren is out to give Nivi the justice she deserves and restore the sharmas' honor blah blah and today we were hit with the reality. To be honest, this was kind of expected at the back of everyone's mind I think yet we all decided to stay well clear of being cynical and instead focused on the possible alternatives- even going as far as both the brothers fighting for a cause heh. I truly wished those ideas or should I say fantasies, as they stand now, could have come to fruition but the fact of matter is they didn't. I personally don't know what to feel since I haven't even watched the episode and I don't even have the desire to watch Nivi ever so unknowingly seeking that person's shoulder who is plotting behind her back. I mean I can't put this fact aside and enjoy their scenes. Like I can't. I guess you could say being a woman we all relate to Nivi much more than Viren and likewise can only imagine what it'd feel like to have fallen part of a rueful conspiracy and that too initiated by one's own support system. So yeah I mean I can totally understand the frustration being shown on the forum.
Now, coming on to the round of predictions, honestly all of a sudden I don't care what it could be that has led Viren to have taken this a bold step. Certainly there is Viren's side of the story too which still puts a big question mark forward- although some aspects of this mystery have begun to unravel in that we know Viren might have been the victim of an inferiority complex, having been compared to Sid all his life and watched him take the bigger piece of the cake most, if not all, of the time. And then he met Nivi like an opportunity knocking on the door and jumped to utilize her. Now that I think back, everything in the beginning seemed to have been happening so fast. Viren realizing he loved Nivi, the marriage etc. It wasn't normal yet we all attributed that to some extenuating reason and instead chose to relish the increasing proximity. Heh, I guess Rachna would pick on disparity and we'd all like usher her into new era of thinking which is to "think NivRen!"
and poor her, she'd like give in to all the positivity around her
Not that I'm being a sadistic jerk here but I feel I don't know bad?
Not that we know Viren is bad. Like rowdily bad but I guess you could call him a manipulator who is so blinded by his inferiority complex that he has lost his ability to ever realize the importance of relationships. Speaking of relationships, I think his state of mind was exacerbated due to the fact that everyone in the Sood household considers Sid as the ultimate benefactor, whilst Viren' would be thrusted with the short end of the stick. So I mean to some extent the idea that there truly are/were extenuating circumstances due to which Viren had to take the step he ultimately took remains robust, yet still I can't being myself to appreciate it.
Like remember how Naveen and Milee bajee posited that Viren would turn bad in Nivi's eyes and yet in actuality be on a hidden agenda? To me, that seemed like a great idea on surface but I couldn't help but wonder the consequence this would have on Nivi and her self esteem which already awfully battered that even a slight blow would send it crashing down to an eternal abyss. But then we all decided that no, Viren was going to let Nivi know of his plans and they'll hunt down the MP together, hand in hand. *sigh* All this sounds so fanatical now, eh? But I digress. Anyhow, the point being that what of Nivi now? What impact will this have on her? Another attack on her trust. You know I read the update, and I can't hold the tears. She hugged Viren, told him stay by her side. ALWAYS. To NEVER leave her. All so affirmatively. Sheesh and all that for someone who is happily smirking to himself seeing his plan finally enroute to be firing on all four cylinders. Damn, Viren you are selfless :( I wish you weren't and would be able to see yourself being hailed as a hero, as a godsend angel through the lips of your wife. Nivi will be shattered OMG. OK I have like fully succumbed by this awful thought of Nivi going towards a mental and emotional breakdown. Gosh she even prayed before God. That doesn't bode well, I tell you. Sorry I'm rambling but I don't know I feel weirdly cheated :(
If there is anything positive to be taken out of this, I guess I'll end with the fact that I hope Nivi can, if possible, to maybe figure out the fact that Viren has been ill treated throughout his life and maybe help him through his inferiority complex gradually. And then move away from him wishing him a successful life and many more to come. This should begin Viren's repentace track, however impossible this may sound. I would definitely want Nivi moving away from Viren after curing him, or atleast after letting him know that she is wary of his heinous act. Actually I don't want to cure him per se. I want her to come out of this strong, realize that she can't do much with bawling, give Mr Viren a piece of her mind so much so that he HIMSELF realizes how stupid he'd been because he may not be the benefactor the Sood Parivaar but he was someone elses HERO; that his fight was in vain, that he was already placed on such a high mantle in his wife's eyes that it would take ages and a horrible amount of work for even best come to the same parity as him. That should be the trigger. But for that to happen, we need the Sharma's moving somewhere far away; like relocating followed by Viren's hunt for her. All this seems so far away and I guess we can't forget that we are yet to see poor Nivi suffer after knowing she was nothing but a part of this rueful conspiracy. However, I hope this round, she comes out of it strong. That she fights back and not let her tears be a spectacle but instead does a total 360 and gives Viren Sood a piece of her mind. Something that would totally rattle him and make him see that he has erred. Big time.
On that note, I will rush out towards the slushy, snowy roads of my university with no one but the freezing winds to keep me company. Pathetic I know :p
Stay strong y'all and wait for Nivi's 360 :D
