Yes I have a lot to catch up on ( I will add some from last few episodes too as I get a chance to) but today's episode was just that inspiring. I don't blame Guddu nor Runjhun...the only fault was she should have waited for Guddu's explanation...anyways before I get into that, I'll let the dialogues speak...or rather what wasn't spoken...
"Kabhi Kabhi zindagi aise mod pe le aati hain ke naa chaahte hue bhi kuch faisle lene padte hai"
"Sometimes life brings you in such a place that you have to make decisions you don't want to take"
This line isn't really particularly important but you can sense the struggle the the money presents to Runjhun. She is internally fighting that it couldn't have happened, but Mittho trying to burn Mahadevi still upsets her. Any mother burning her kid seems wrong so you can sense the internal conflict that is present in Runjhun even as she tells herself that she believes Guddu and not the mamas and mamis she wants to hear it from his mouth that she wasn't some part of the deal. She ask all valid questions which Guddu gave valid answers unfortunately it rang true with the mamas and mamis told her.
"Tumhe tumhaare mama mami ke changul se chudaana chaahte hain isliye."
"I want to save you from the clutches of your aunts and uncles"
I think Guddu admits to Runjhun that he wants to protect her. The reason why he's taking her away from them is very clearly set. He is protective of her. In his opinion there isn't love involved but as a husband he's taking her away. He's not going to leave her alone with the six devils of her life. He states this very matter of factly. This is what he wants to do, and he's going to protect her.
Unfortunately she denies that to him, because of the misunderstanding. When she tells him she can't come she takes away from him the right as a husband to protect her. Hence the line that follows.
"Humara dimaag hi kharaab tha, jo tumhe ek pal ke liye humne apni patni samajh liya tha. Aur tum, tumne to ek pal ke liye bhi humein apna pati nahi maana."
"I was the crazy one, who for a moment took you at my wife, when the truth is that you've never considered me your husband, even for a moment."
Runjhun's expression on these dialogues show surprise, because at one hand he agrees to taking money hurting her, and on the other he says he considered his wife, throwing her for the loop again. Guddu here is very true, I don't think Runjhun has ever really relied on Guddu. She needs him which is very much apparent in the way she holds on to him when she stops her from falling but Runjhun has never admitted to needing the support, never relied on him for anything, not the way a wife does to a husband anyways. She's always maintained the distance, which is why Guddu still thinks himself unworthy of her. He still puts himself down when compared to her, because in reality she might have said once that she has faith in him or she trusts him, but she's never relied on it. She's so used to taking care of herself, that she's never really let go, and allowed her husband that right. She's fighting with him, trying to make her marriage work, but even there she's fighting alone. Runjhun has to realize too that she has to work with Guddu to make this marriage work. She has to allow him to come in, she can't keep him a spectator to their marriage and expect him to work with her.
"Tumhaari bahut keemti cheez bhul gaye the hum. Socha tumhe lauta dete hain. Rakho yeh sindoor."
"I'd forgotten one very important thing of yours. I thought I'd return it to you. Keep your vermillion."
If people thought Guddu catching Runjhun's vermillion was signficant, this is very much more significant, and symbolic. Guddu may be able to save Runjhun but he can't continue doing it without her help. I said this before but Runjhun has to learn to fight with Guddu or stand with him even if she doesn't fight. He can't fight if she's standing in the front with blockers on. He's giving the ball in her court. He saved her vermillion once now it is her responsibility. She's the one who has to save the marriage. He might have wronged her but he considers her his wife. It is her turn to give him the same respect and allow him to be her husband in all sense. This is now hers to fix, no one elses, and the way she wraps her palms around it, I have a feeling she will definitely try to protect it at all cost.
"Do minute main humko yeh kamra aisa chahiye jaise pehle tha."
"In two minutes I want this room as it was."
Guddu truly lashes out when he's hurt. Even Amma understands Guddu better than Runjhun does. The significance of this line to me is the fact that Guddu wants in a way to go back to his original life, but can't. The way he may want to tear and throw Runjhun away from his life but he can't. He wants no consolation because no matter who says what he can't change the fact that Runjhun matters. What she says and does matters. He would love to go back to before the challenge, before they even got married, so he can erase how hurt he is, but he can't. He's become fully invested. If only these two idiots would truly tell each other how they feel...they wouldn't be at this point either.
I'm glad though that Guddu told Runjhun about the 10 lakhs. He didn't lie. I'm actually happy that Runjhun didn't go with Guddu today, as much as I wanted her to leave. After today, the mamas and mamis have broken any thread that connected Runjhun to them. I'm actually happy for whatever they did on Friday. Amma is right their fortune has stopped working and not because Runjhun is leaving, or because Amma cursed them, but because they didn't realize the worth of what they had. They might think that Runjhun single-handedly ruined her marriage, but the truth is they have single-handedly ruined any chance of Runjhun staying back now.
Whatever little faith that remained, whatever gratitude that Runjhun owed, whatever respect Runjhun has ever had for them, is all gone. They've actually set her free. In tying to tie her down, they've actually set her free, and they will get their penance slowly but surely...
