Firstly, thank you guys so much for all the lovely comments I got on my last analysis, and a special thanks to those of you who took the time out to send me PMs about it! It's great to know that my take on events is appreciated.
Because I never remember to do this, I'd like to salute Daljeet & Barun for their amazing performance in today's episode. Both were absolutely fantastic! (& Barun, you got a haircut - as if it was possible for me to love you more! )
Sathu's quotes at the start of this post reminds me of a comment I made on Redux in response to one of Koel's analyses:
Sunshine99 - Beautiful post! It flowed wonderfully and the way you explained Devi Maiyya playing a huge part in all of this was really good. The 3 women... Why does this remind me of the 3 witches in Macbeth? If I cared to remember that story I could have perhaps done some analysis on it
I can't remember Macbeth for the life of me as I've mentally removed it from my memory, but I just found it interesting, that's all. In relation to Koel's analysis the 3 witches are Nani, Dadi & Garima, three women who hold the keys to the truth of the past.
The first scene, we see the family gathered around Anjali, not so different to when Shyam's truth was revealed in front of her. Everyone is visibly worried, and Anjali turns to Khushi to assure them that everything's fine. Wasn't this exactly what she did when the truth was revealed? She urged Khushi to retract her words so she could return to her peaceful bubble. Anjali asks everyone what's wrong, and no one knows how to break the truth to her as they know it will shatter her world. Finally, Mami breaks the silence and reveals the heartbreaking truth of her miscarriage. Mami seems to always be the bearer of bad news in relation to Anjali; it was Mami who first voiced her suspicions of Khushi and Shyam to Anjali, and it's Mami who's telling Anjali the truth of the miscarriage. Anjali slowly registers what is being said in front of her, the tears on everyone's faces, yet she chooses not to believe it.
Arnav is a spectator, watching on the outside as his sister's heart breaks in front of him at the realisation that her child is no more.
When Arnav is placed in an unfamiliar situation he is quick to distance himself from others. The essence of who he is is very much the same even though his attitude has changed - he will still distance himself and close off when he has suffered from a shock.
Arnav, as I mentioned in my previous analysis, distances himself in unfamiliar situations. We saw this here with the physical barrier of the glass between Arnav & Anjali. He wants to be there for her, but something within him is restraining him and holding him back. He feels helpless in the situation, and has no idea of what he could possibly do to make his sister's pain go away.
"Kuch nahi hua humaare bache ko" - the evidence is in front of her in the form of the look in the eyes of her closest family, yet Anjali chooses to ignore it. She paints a beautiful picture of herself with her rajkumari and how perfect their lives together would be. She is so submerged in this illusion that she doesn't even notice the look of disbelief on each person's face at the impossibility of her words. Looking around the room, one by one she tries to assure each person gathered around her bed that everything is fine and the picture she has painted of her wonderful life is very much still intact.
Khushi tries to break into Anjali's illusion, just like she previously did, and tell her that her daughter is indeed dead. Anjali yells at her, telling her to stop uttering such nonsense. Just like when she was confronted with Shyam's truth, she ignored the truth and vehemently denied any possibility of Shyam being unfaithful, insisting that it was a misunderstanding. When she sees Arnav with his back turned, however, something goes off in Anjali's brain. Does this mean that only when the barrier between Arnav and Anjali gets so big that Arnav completely turns away from her will Anjali finally acknowledge the truth that was in front of her eyes the whole time? She asks Khushi to reassure Arnav that nothing's wrong, to be there with him. Again, parallels can be drawn to the Shyam issue here. Still adamant in her denial, Anjali smiles as she sees Khushi stand up. Yet her smile falters when a distraught Arnav turns around with tears in his eyes. It is only when she sees the raw pain on Arnav's face that realisation finally dawns on her and hits her hard. Just like Arnav can't tolerate his Di in pain, she cannot tolerate seeing her Chote in that way. She knows that Arnav would never be that upset without reason, and it is this factor that makes her see the truth that was in front of her.
Her shaking hands reach up to her stomach, willing her suspicions to be wrong, but all hope is in vain; she touches her stomach and finds no sign of life there and screams out in pain, releasing all the pent-up pain that had remained hidden from the past. Life had again dealt her a cruel card & she couldn't take the fact that she was being punished by life once again through no fault of her own. Anjali seeks refuge in Khushi's arms, indicating that Khushi will be there for her and support her in the future. Where Arnav will grow more detached, Khushi will take his place and be there for her sister-in-law. Khushi has a very forgiving mentality (she forgave Arnav for all the torture she endured because of him) yet Arnav doesn't. Khushi will forgive Anjali for her deceit but Arnav will not do so so easily. Also, Khushi is also more tolerant than Arnav is; she may agree with Dadi's suggestion of Shyam returning for Anjali's benefit, yet Arnav won't as he will not be able to tolerate the man lusting after his wife living under his roof. However, Arnav forgets that Khushi had tolerated him, knowing the truth, for a lot longer than he did.
Arnav, watching this spectacle, reaches for the door handle, but cannot bring himself to open it. He feels helpless watching from the outside, but he knows that he cannot do anything to numb the pain his sister's feeling as she has felt it before, when their parents died, and he could do nothing to prevent it. He had previously locked away all feeling as he had no control over it - wealth cannot buy feelings so he felt that he was better off without anything that he couldn't control. Yet Khushi began to chip away at this hard exterior; she had begun unlocking the multi-faceted man that is Arnav Singh Raizada and made him feel again. Although this brought positives, negatives quickly came along with it as ASR began to feel pain - the pain he had locked away for the last 14 years for the sake of his sister began seeping through those strong walls that were gradually crumbling down.
Dadi is insisting on bringing Shyam to the hospital - why? Why does it make me think that Dadi had her part to play in all of this, a part bigger than just allowing Shyam to visit Anjali at RM? Surely she wouldn't willingly put her granddaughter in danger
Khushi emerges from the room and immediately approaches Arnav, yet he turns away from her. He doesn't want to expose his vulnerability in front of Khushi, yet she coaxes him into talking to her and revealing what it is that is worrying him. "Mujhme itni himmat nahi hai Khushi" - he is telling her that he isn't strong enough to cope with his sister's pain, yet Khushi is insisting that he is the only one who can help her through this; Arnav & Anjali have been through so much pain together and Arnav cannot isolate her now.
Rather than going home with everyone else, Khushi states that she is staying at the hospital. Khushi will be the one who will help Arnav face his demons and come to terms with the past. It's only then that the two of them can truly move on. Once the family goes, Dadi remains along with Arnav and Khushi. Dadi and Khushi settle Anjali down in her bed. Does this mean that the two of them will eventually put their differences aside and learn to get along for Anjali's sake?
Arnav meanwhile is pacing up and down the corridor, in front of an idol (is it Ganesh? Sorry, I'm really unsure!), thinking about everything that went on with Anjali. This, to me, signifies how regardless of whether he is close to his faith or distant, his fate remains the same. He is a tortured soul, and there is always pain lurking around the corner from him. But this pacing signified his inner turmoil with regards to his faith as well as his past.
Khushi apprehensively approaches Arnav; just like the previous scene in the hospital waiting room where Arnav approached Khushi, but the tables have now turned. Arnav is explaining the reasons behind his distress and Khushi is patiently listening rather than showering him with comforting platitudes. She allows him to vent out all of his frustration, all of his anger at his own helplessness. We get a look-in into the past here, the last time where Arnav had felt so helpless. We see that Arnav's mother is accusing his father of having an affair in a heated argument, not allowing him to explain his side of the story. We have, however, witnessed a tainted view of occurrences (Arnav's view of history repeating is quite similar to the one I had thought of in my theory of past occurrences); tainted due to Arnav's allegiance towards his mother. Arnav doesn't think rationally in anger, so did he actually make any attempt at discovering the truth? Is his Dadi right in suggesting his father was blameless? Did his father indeed commit suicide (contrary to what I had previously thought) because he was unable to take the heartbreak of his wife killing herself due to a misunderstanding? What intrigues me is where Khushi fits into the image. Could the woman we caught a snippet of have been Khushi's mother? Many questions have remained unanswered; if anything, we have more questions now having seen this confrontation.
"Maa, baap, pati aur ab bacha" - remember the 4 factors/promises/phere I had referred to in a previous post? (link: http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3167140&PID=63862948�) I have a feeling that these could potentially be the real 4 factors, or at least a part of them.
Khushi turns Arnav to look at her, and it seems as if he has seen her for the first time during their entire conversation. There is a hint of recognition in Arnav's eyes before she pulls him into a hug; he knows, he acknowledges that Khushi is there for him through everything and he no longer has to do anything alone, and he appreciates her help and support. He has laid everything out in front of her, the core of his being and the reason he is who he is, and she has still accepted him wholeheartedly. The hug was just perfect.
Brilliant, brilliant episode overall!

What an amazing episode it was. Great job by the CVs and by the actors for their wonderful delivery.
It was poignant episode showing a mother's agony, a brother's / son's helplessness and sense of failure and a wife's resolve to support her husband.
"Yeh sapna nahin haqueeqat hai."
Anjali - Just a few days ago, the sonogram made her realize that the life growing inside her was not just her dream but a reality. All this time she was weaving dreams around her unborn baby, the baby which was the center of her universe. How can she believe the baby was just a fleeting dream?
"I am a bloody failure."
Arnav - 14 years ago he was a helpless son who failed to save his mother. And now 14 years later he is helpless brother, who could do nothing to save his sister's bundle of joy. Her world came crashing down and he could do nothing prevent the collapse. He is feeble, powerless.
"Jab bhi mein Shyam ke baare mein sochta hoon, mujhe aapne dad ka chedhra yaad aata hai"
14 years ago he found out about his father's betrayal towards his mother. 14 years later, he learned about his brother-in-laws betrayal. Back then he was a helpless son, now he is helpless brother .The ghost of his past continues to haunt him.
"Hum yehi rahenge."
Khushi - She knows what she has to do. No matter what happens she will stand by her man through thick and thin. His family is her family, his happiness is her happiness, and his grief is her grief.
One thing didn't sit well with me. Anjali's shock and disbelief is completely realistic but is it possible for her to sit up immediately after gaining consciousness? Wasn't there supposed to be some strain in the voice?
Things to ponder
During the FB seen Ratna Malik draped her sari with her pallu in the front and sari looked quite simple, not something one would wear during a wedding. In the old FB seen, we can see her wearing a different sari and she's seems to be decked up. We can also see Arnav witnessing the fight but when he hears the gunshot, her is downstairs with Anjali. So the suicide's didn't happen right after the fight.
Barun Sobti - Once again you made me speechless. The pain, helplessness, the breakdown, every emotion was portrayed wonderfully. It made me teary eyed. Arnav was crying but it was a little difficult to understand some of the dialogues. But nevertheless, nothing can take away from that delightful performance.
Daljeet Bhanot - The shock and disbelief is completely realistic but I expected to hear a strained voice and see some exhaustion in the face. But the reaction after seeing Arnav in tears, just before the breakdown was beautifully portrayed.
Sanaya Irani - Your eyes speak volumes; A wonderful, understated performance.
Utkarsha Naik - You beautifully enacted a mother's love and concern.
