Good god, I can't get over Yash's laugh in the precap! I think I have seen it at least 10 times by now, and every time I have to pause at this shot and stare at it for a couple of seconds before I can move on! This is the first time in the show we are seeing him laugh in such an open and unrestrained way and it is so, so beautiful to watch! I actually don't ever remember Gurmeet laughing like this ever before, even on the set of Jhalak, and it's absolutely amazing what a spell bounding effect it creates! Plus the fact that they threw this at us when were least expecting it just makes it all the more impactful! I really can't wait to see what leads to this AarYa laugh attack because it must have taken something big for Yash to lose all his inhibitions and just live in the moment like that!
And I really, really, really don't blame Aarti from confessing at this moment, I mean, who wouldn't? This is a breakthrough moment for both of them, and it makes sense for Aarti to bring her feelings into the light after sharing it with him! I am certain that she has no expectations from him and might even expect him to blast her because she deviated from their so-called boundaries, but that doesn't stop her from saying those three words as she knows that their is no point in hiding her feelings any more! He already has an inkling that she is falling for him and she wants to clear all his doubts and turn them into hard core truths so that later on he can't point any fingers at her. And even if he takes it a little too far with his reaction, at the end of the day the final outcome will be nothing but positive. I would actually like to see come back to earth and accept that this is going to be an unrequited relationship! This is going to naturally have her start to pull away a little from Yash and that is going to drive him absolutely nuts! I mean first he is going to have her confession ringing in his head every second of every day forcing him to confront the changing dynamic of their relationship and then the growing distance between them might just put him over the edge, which is exactly what he needs!
From now on, no matter what happens, Aarti will take the front seat in Yash's thoughts and Arpita will be pushed back simply because there are much more pressing matters in the present that Yash must now deal with! Today was a clear indicator that he is becoming slightly aware of his attraction towards Aarti and he is doing his level best to ignore it and run away from it! But he won't be able to do either of that when her concrete words will be running a mess in his head. No matter how much he pretends to throw it off and be angry at her, this is going to be the turning point of Yash's healing process because now he knows
that there is someone out there who loves him for him. I think after Arpita's death not only was he sure that he won't be able to love anyone, but also that no one will be able to love him. But here in one go, Aarti not only tells him that love can indeed happen more than once but also that he can still be loved despite all his baggage! And this once again goes back to the fact that Yash needs to be needed
and there is no way better to let a person know that you need them than to tell them that you are in love with them! So all the cards are falling right on target here, both in terms of character growth and relationship progression!
After my first watch I was absolutely horrified at the idea of Aarti confessing her love at this juncture, but the more I saw the precap and the more I thought about it, the more it makes sense for her to so right now! And I really, really hope that this doesn't turn out to be a dream sequence or something because that would be so, so anti-climatic! One thing is for sure though, the precap is definitely not a manipulation because it's one entire sequence without any cuts or breaks, so the whole scene in it's entirety will be happening, now all that's left to see is if it happens for real or if it's the result of another over hyper imagination! Either way though, next week is going to make for a very interesting watch because this it is going to mark the beginning of the many emotional turmoils and changes Yash is going to be going through with regards to Aarti. He is going to have absolutely nothing to fall back on anymore and I am sure we'll be getting to see a lot of internal conflict within him as he struggles between his past and present!
And I can't believe I did a whole take on just the 20 second precap itself! I seriously need to learn how to condense my thoughts, but when it comes to AarYa, I don't seem to have any control over my words! Once I start typing all the thoughts running around my head tend to spill on my screen and I am left completely helpless
I am sure this was extremely scatter brained but this precap did take me for a spin and now I have two very long days to wait before I can see the outcome of this! It's really lucky that I am supremely busy during the day otherwise I would have gone crazy! I have tons to say about the episode itself as well, especially about the last beach sequence (how beautifully enchanting was that?), but that's all for tomorrow because I am totally beat for now!
