In all the remorse and heartbreak of today's episode, and wishes for Arnav to suffer... Did everyone forget about his scene with Khushi's family?? I was pleasently surprised that Buaji off all people was so polite to him (see there still might be hope for her!).
I guess the fam knew he paid for all the hospital expenses.
The moment Arnav enetered, they focused of Babuji, almost as if he had a 6th sense (well he kind of does, he was the only one who could sense something fishy was up with Shyam) to see through Arnav's tough outer exterior and right into him and see what a troubled, conflicted person he is. I feel he could sense the obvious tension between him and Arnav.
I have a strong feeling, he'll play a huge role in Arnav and Anjali's life, as far as we've been shown, these both were betrayed by their father, so Shashi will play an important role in their lives as a surrogate father. Ultimately, it will be him who'll tell Arnav Shyam's truth and make him realize his love for Khushi and tell him to go after his love... awww that'll be a cherishable scene!
I really liked the interaction between him and the family, maybe it was a foreshadow of what is to come... how they'll treat their son-in-law and he his in-laws!
