Today I venture into new territory – interpreting the symbolism of that broken wrist watch. I am writing 3 interpretations that to some extent overlap but together convey the significance. You my dear DC friend have the freedom to mix-n-match as you choose!
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one
And the mouse ran down
Hickory Dickory dock
Hickory Dickory = Prashant
Mouse = silent predator in Aarti's life aka grahan or eclipse aka dark shadow aka web of lies
The mousegained entry in Aarti's life or personal space
Clock struck one = Time of reckoning has arrived signified by Aarti throwing the watch and causing it to break
When the time of reckoning arrives – the mouse flees.
Aarti is suffocating under a web of lies regarding P and the Dupeys negative influence (Similar to a situation if a mouse was to gain entry into your house). Finally the hour of reckoning has arrived. Yash by picking up the broken watch is going to actively assist Aarti in breaking from P's bondage and the negative hold that the Dupeys have on her.
For Aarti time had stopped when P dumped her (and walked away with the watch she had gifted) – today when she threw and broke the same watch – she has taken the decision to be free of her past and to move forward with the present – Yash. Yash picking up the broken watch indicates that the time has arrived for him to become aware of Aarti's past that is holding her and Ansh captive to P and the Dupeys.
An alarm is an alert or warning – a symbol that something must be done now or acted upon quickly.
For Aarti it is an alert that she has procrastinated way too long in revealing the P factor and Ansh's BMT to Yash. She has not just procrastinated – she has almost forgotten. But now by handing the watch to her Yash has reminded her that she needs to come clean with him urgently before it is too late – so that he can protect her and Ansh and put in order this area of their life.

Another good episode that hopefully brings us one step closer to the truth.
Fear defeats more people than any other thing in the world.
Aarti and Yash's conversation on lies continue with Yash fearing for the coming days as one day the truth will be revealed. His love for his younger brother is shown as he does not want to keep him in the dark but Aarti makes him understand that hearing the truth from anybody other than Paridhi may never let him forgive Paridhi. In a sense the same advice would apply to her as well. Yash then asks Aarti to talk to Paridhi about it as it would not be right for him to do so and it is only when Prateek is aware of the truth that it will be easier for them to save Paridhi. When he leaves her alone, Aarti says she knows how much he hates lies and so as soon as the final session is over, she will reveal the truth to him.
The next morning the family is in the living room when the driver comes in with a watch he found in one of the cars. Bua takes it from him, examines it and eliminates all the Scindia men from being the owner of it. Palak then jumps in to tell them that the watch belongs to Yash's friend who stays with the Dubeys. Aarti is visibly nervous and bends her head while Bua watches her intently for a reaction. She then asks Aarti if the watch got in the car by chance but before she can get a chance to answer, Yash jumps to her rescue by saying that it probably fell out on Divali night as he and Prashant came in the same car. It was as though he sensed Bua would try to place the blame on Aarti and so he stepped in to protect his wife. Before leaving for a meeting, Yash asks Aarti to keep the watch safely and return it to Prashant the next time she goes to her mom's house.
Alone in her room, Aarti looks at the watch and remembers the day she gave it to Prashant. She gets angry at herself for remembering the times she spent with Prashant and throws the watch out the window, breaking it. Aarti is angry for remembering her past with Prashant but I think this particular day is hard to erase from her memory as it was the day she found out she was going to be a mother and so the memory of that special feeling of life inside of her will always remain no matter how hard she tries to get away from it. It is significant however that the watch breaks possibly signifying that Prashant's time in her life has come to an end and so she can finally move forward.
Aarti then calls Shobha asking when the final session of treatment is. Shobha tells her she is not sure as the doctors have given Prashant new medicines so they will take a while to decide. Sensing Aarti's agitation she asks the reason she wanted to know and before Shobha can start her usual lectures, Aarti cuts her off telling her that she feels so guilty hiding it all from Yash that she can't even seem to look him in the eye properly. She tells Shobha that as soon as the treatment is over she will tell Yash as as sooner or later her and the family will come to learn of the truth. When she cuts the call and turns around Yash is standing in the room. She thinks he has forgotten something and in her nervousness goes over to the closet searching to give it to him. He however tells her that he did not forget anything and mentions Prashant's watch, triggering her anger further. He doesn't bother to tell her anything, keeps the watch in his pocket and leaves. When he is leaving she finally turns to face him, only to see his retreating figure and so she wonders what made her speak to Yash in such a manner and if she is going crazy.
Prashant is in the park when he starts remembering some of the past moments that were spent with Aarti. His last memory before coming back to reality was of Aarti's hair tickling his face causing him to sneeze. There is a noticeable difference between him and Yash here as Prashant seems to get turned off when Aarti's hair would tickle him while Yash gets lost and attracted to her hair. Yash meets him in the park, telling him that Dubeyji told him that he would be here. He shows Prashant the broken watch and Prashant remembers the night they dropped Ansh back to the picnic site. He wonders if Yash has found out about him and Aarti. Prashant confirms that it is his watch and Yash reveals that the watch is in that condition since Aarti threw is out the window. He observes Prashant's reactions to his words before asking him if he knows the reason why Aarti gets angry and upset when she sees him. Prashant thinks that he should tell Yash the truth.
Looking forward to tomorrow's episode.
