*edit* ... back with my take ...
A very well crafted episode ... first of all, hats off to the IPKKND team, that in spite of knowing what was going to happen ... down to many of the scenes ... they still managed to keep us glued to the screen. Boy, were they confident or what ... and with reason as it turned out!
I say well crafted because of the way they built it up
... we all knew what the climax was going to be ... well duh, climax had to come at the end ... definition of climax ... but the build up was great
... starting with simple ordinary everyday scenes of the RM ladies starting to plan for a wedding even though they have no idea when it's going to happen, because of Arnav's obstinacy ... the Arshi squabble at the start, one of their many usual ones ... but the repurcussions at the end were anything but usual ...
Khushi finds out about La, Anjali Nani deception ... Oooh lala was cute, all happy family ... Nani's thumkas
... she can give the rest a run for their money all right! Khushi relents, of course she does ... and icing on cake was Arnav watching the show with a smile to see his Khushi so khush! Awww ... and the women in his life equally khush
The ringa ringa roses for the ring was cute ... how did Anjali and Khushi think they would get the ring back if Lakshmi had really swallowed it?
Yuckkk ... the mind boggles ... glad that Lakshmi had more sense!
And she dropped it where it would do most good
I also liked the touch of Anjali banging into Arnav and repeating Khushi's words of the morning I am glad that I didn't watch the SBB segment before the episode aired ... loved the way Khushi refused to apologise ... Arnav was toying with her at the start ... he enjoys pushing her buttons and seeing her get riled ... but the moment she gets too close to home, he doesn't like it and he pulls rank ... he looked as though he was looking forward to another spat when he challenged her about the ring ... only to be taken aback when she walked out on him! They are going to have one fiery relationship because she does NOT like giving in, especially when she thinks she's right!
And poor Khushi, as Bua pulled an emotional atyachaar on her ... unfair, bringing in her real parents and pulling forth Khushi's feeling of indebtedness to her babuji again ... leaving her with no choice but to eat her words ...
and loved the way Arnav can take her fighting and has no compunction in fighting back dirty, but her tears he can't take ...the way he melted and was so taken aback at her repeated apologies ... the soft shhh,
and the way he pressed the ring into her palm ... she fumbles and he tries to help her put the ring back on ... he thinks of her as his
and doesn't even realise it ... well, he will, very soon ...
And he does ... when she shows him she isn't
... she withdraws her hand ... he has no right to put that ring on her ... She's engaged???How
can she be engaged???
For a few moments, I thought they edited the rest with the 'farak padta hai' ... with the Anjali interruption ... fortunately Anjali leaves again, after putting the ring on Khushi's finger ... watched by Arnav ... the ring that makes Khushi another's ... not
And when Anjali leaves, he erupts ... snatches her phone, bua and the rest of the world can go to hell, because he
is talking to her ... he
needs to talk to her ... 'Kya kar rahi ho tum?'
I liked this dialogue even better than the 'farak padta hai' ... maybe because we hadn't heard it before ... but also because it was so typically Arnav ... it showed his feelings more than clearly ... that he thinks of her as his ... how can she even think of belonging to anyone else? ... Arnav bitwa, more than time for you to get off your high horse and start fighting for your girl ... she has the odds stacked against her, including the fact that La has now officially declared her her best friend ... but of course, we know he's not going to do that ... yet.
The way I see it is ... the only way Arnav will claim Khushi is because of Shyam ... either knowing who Shyam is, or maybe Shyam making a mistake and hurting Khushi ... protectiveness either for Anjali or Khushi ... or both. Love will not be the push factor.
