Warning - If you absolutely loved the episode, you will find the following flippant and not in keeping with the spirit of the occasion. If you do not wish to be irritated, please skip the rest.
For those of you who are left, always assuming there are any left, here goes.
I will start with a protest against spoilers.. have developed a hatred for them. This whole Pankhudi critical, touch and go, life hanging by a thread etc. would have been able to induce more nail biting tension, if I did not know that in the coming days, the girl was going to be PLANNING A PARTY
Phew.. now that's out of my system, wait, one more gripe.
Anuj settles the case out of court. Why CVs did you not do this before hand? If you had, we would have been spared this whole drama and had some other way of Adi realizing his feelings, which I am still presuming is the point
So to the episode...
The goons waiting in the wings, take centre stage, complete with hockey sticks and proceed to attack Nanu and Avantu. Goddess Shakti, the form of Pankhudi, arrives to the rescue. No trident, but a very modern pepper spray?, deodorant? whatever is used on the goons and is just as effective. The goons depart but not before delivering a crushing blow to the head.
Rubel watches from a safe distance, wondering whether to interfere. Ah, Rubel, what a shining example of cowardice
... chicken anyone???
Harish (gosh I love this guy), with Avantika in front of him, emotional and in tears, can't help but say "I told you so"
... did I mention I love this guy??? And he is the only one smart enough to realize that the randomness of the attack means something
From the second Adi got into the car and took off for the hospital, anyone and everyone could have predicted that he would have to run there (I think he knew it too, that's why the blue trainers as supposed to shoes appropriate for office wear
). And so he does, through traffic, streets, doors, corridors, slamming into unwary passers by and knocking trays out of the hands of harried nurses. He arrives just in time to see the edge of the gurney pass into the ICU and is left with nothing to do except deliver an agonized shout of Pankhudi.
Precap - a panditji telling Adi to do some jhaap to Lord Shiva for Pankhudi's life. Adi thinking he does not know this jhaap. Don't worry Adi, Lord Shiva is just as likely to listen to an impassioned plea as he is to the jhaap. After all, being God, he knows what you don't, that Pankhudi has to be up and about so she can get on with planning that party.
