Ah. Reading through the balance of the thread since I left last night (more like this morning!) makes it amply clear that we are divided in two. Those who absolutely loved the episode and those who banging their heads against a wall. My theory is that the CVs went out on a creative/artistic limb and tried to create the feeling in the audience, rather than telling them what Aarti and Yash were feeling. Some felt it and some didn't, and that is the risk the creators took with this episode, I guess. But I think it will work because all roads lead to rome at this point. The ones who felt the unspoken thing will see the confession as natural and those who didn't will see it as stupid and feel vindicated in Aarti getting her come-uppance in the form of Yash blasting her to Mars. I like that they are not afraid to stray from the literal route once in a while.
@Sadie: Aarti herself doesn't know what is going on in her brain. She is just happy being in love with Yash because it is giving her a new hope and new fun in life. She is not too bothered by his rejection because she saw it coming in any case. But she is also happy in the thought of how well she knows him each time, and laughs at all the coincidences. I know you don't believe in love, but don't you ever find yourself laughing at stupid things that are not so funny when you are really happy about something? That's Aarti right now. Yash has not thought about Arpita because his mind is filled with the present right now. He simply hasn't had time because there is too much to deal with in the here and now.
@Saf: Those quotes were perfect! Just perfect, especially this one:
You can close your eyes to the things you don't want to see but you can never close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.
@Borma: I knew you would be impressed by the throwbacks to Prashant and Arpita, especially the former. We discussed that "umar bhar ki qaid" dialogue so much when that flashback first happened. I think I am going to go look at that old discussion thread to see what precisely we had to say about it. I actually watched the second episode again today for those flashbacks and I couldn't help but feel admiration for the attention to detail. Aarti looks so young and sweet, that you just want to kill Prashant all the more, now with the knowledge that he once hit her and wore her self esteem down to nothing. The Aarti of today is so different, so rounded and gentle. I just have to take my hat of to Kratika and the whole team there! I can see how much Aarti has grown up since she began falling in love with Yash, and became a mother two more times. It has taught her patience, poise and grace, which I feel in her every little action now.
@Indu: Your take washed over me just like the waves at the beach wash over your feet, gently and imperceptibly eroding the ground under my feet and the sanity in my mind. Marbles are lost yet again. I agree with you on the precap. I think Aarti is doing the right thing, as I said earlier on the thread, if only for the honesty of it all. If we saw any manipulation before, it is gone now as she is willingly putting herself in the vulnerable position. I am very excited!
@Red: It was especially weird because just a few days ago we saw Pari bitterly saying she could not become Urmila and then here she was bobbing her head up and down asking, "chaudha saal?" as though she had no idea. Anyway. YOU were the first person I thought of after I got over the initial shock of the precap. I was thinking to myself, Redeye will be pleased. I too hope it leads to a reality check for Aarti, but I don't think she is unprepared for him to go ballistic. I want to see some reaction from Yash that is not violent, but that affects her more deeply than a violent outburst would.
