After today's episode, I really wonder whether Toasty or the C parivaar is to be blamed for Smiley's situation.
Today Tej was frank with her. He told her that he is doing this marriage only for Toasty. He made it very clear to her that he wouldn't be able to give her Toasty's place in his life. Toasty is irreplacable in his life. At the same time, he praised her for being a nice and sweet girl but he would never be able to give her happiness or love. He told her that she can easily refuse to get married to him and he has nothing against her.
I was really hoping that Smiley would now refuse to get married but no, she still wants to marry him because she loves him?
She was let free but she is the one who didn't want to go.
But at the same time, I wonder whether it would be Smiley, herself who will be going to unite Tej and Toasty once she comes to know that the latter is still alive :) Probably anyone else in Smiley's place wouldn't take the effort of uniting TejYa but by judging Smiley's sweet character, she would and for that I would appalud her if she actually does that :)
Honestly speaking after reading your criticism of Smiley, my first thought was "Yeah, why not! blame it on poor girl!!"
On further thinking, I can only add this to above...If Smiley stayed selfish and either left C-parivar after Toasty's death news or said NO to everyone including Tej to participate in all this, I wonder how Tej would have ever been able to fulfill his wife's last wishes. When he agreed for marriage, he should have known the exact meaning of
it (has been a husband before) and empathize with Smiley at least at the
human level rather than going ahead with engagement ceremonies keeping
the sad puppy face. Why did he not say all these things to Smiley before putting that ring on her finger?
It makes me sad that though being girls themselves, so many forum members, continue to blame female characters when things go awry in the show. I remember defending Toasty plenty of times before and now it's Smiley who is being targeted :(
