I am not delving into the epi from today. Arnav reflecting, Shyam attempted murdering, Sashi gasping, Khushi and the 3 stooges (Payal, Amma and Bua) crying - there you have it. I am sooo much more interested in that glorious NOT accidental hug.
Arnav wasn't so much reflecting, as he was trying to run away from the 'reflecting' that any ordinary guy in his situation would have done! You know, sit down peacefully and try to work out what was happening...but Arnav has already realized what is happening or rather what has happened and now wants to run for his life, from the girl who is creating all this havoc!
So after 4 months of rakshas this and rakshas that, Khushi Kumari Gupta b-lines straight into the arms of said "rakshas". Because deep down in places she doesn't want to admit, he never was. Because the acidity is only caused by the ulcer she's giving herself trying to avoid her Laad Governor's gaze. Because he has always been her knight in shining armor (her tormentor too, but always her knight) and not the beast she is so much more comfortable pretending he is.
I don't think Khushi has still 'got it' as far as her and Arnav's relation is concerned! And that is the very reason, that she rushes uninhibitedly into his arms for solace while he struggles to respond back! Because realization has hit him, he is conscious and aware, while she is not. And since her feelings for Arnav are still in her sub-conscious mind, that led her into his arms for protection and comfort!
When push came to shove and she was tired of being the strength for her family, she ran to the only person she knew who would be strong enough to bear her tears and do something about them. Arnav Singh Raizada. In actuality, he never was the beast - he was the tortured knight.
We will have to see the real reason for Khushi running into Arnav's arms...is it because she is anguished by her father's state and seeks Arnav for comfort or is it because the question of her marriage to Shyam has been brought by Buaji and she has been emotionally blackmailed into agreeing...which makes her realize that she is in love with someone else and when that someone else pops up all of a sudden, being the impulsive kid that she is...runs straight into his arms. Her own way of telling him to stop this unwanted marriage. Just my guess!
The real beast, as we know, is lurking in the shadows around the corridor
I wrote a couple of lines of something off the top of my head, not really structured too well -
She rushes to him
an open wound
on the run
towards her only
He lets her grasp
hold of his rooted
He will anchor her to his shore
He will keep her afloat
far from the abyss of despair
She buries herself within
his calm strength.
He closes his eyes.
Let me wash away your worry
Let me shield you
from the familiar loss
Let me be the ocean
to swallow all of your tears.
(Yes, I know, Arnav means ocean - it was intentional)
That was beautiful! I hope this poem is not copyrighted...I might just use it somewhere and pass it as my own! Just kidding...it was really very well-written!
*Edit* - all of this holds true even if it's a dream - but if it is a dream, I am coming after you Gautamji - and don't go hiding behind any Gopi Vahu's paloo neither
Unlikely to be a dream...dream sequence in a hospital does not sound very romantic!
