What a fantastic episode!!!
It might not be much, but the analyst in me is dancing!
"One must realise that their inner strength is their outer foundation" - Allan Rufus
There were many realisations that came to each of the characters today!
Realisations usually take some time to dawn on a person, however, it's never too late!
Even I came to a realisation today!
The first prominent scene that stood out was the conversation between Rajeev and Gunjan at the beginning!
I had no clue what they said, but thankfully Smruti
was to my rescue!
That conversation clearly pointed out that this closed book is opening! The look in Rajeev's eyes and his determination to help Gunjan only speak out past shadows lurking in the background!
Rajeev once left his house for the sake of a girl and today, Gunjan left her house for the sake of Vihaan. The irony of the situation is, both of them are not the biological child of the house, so the insecurity is there and who better than Rajeev understands that!
The way he prompted Gunjan to speak was amazing!
And his advise was even more amazing!
(I love the man!
Hence, I came to the realisation that it hurts Rajeev terribly to stay away from his family and Rajeev came to the realisation that he regretted leaving his family! Yes, I said it! He regrets it because only when he saw another person in the situation that he was years ago, did he realise the wrong decision he made!
This makes me even more curious about why he left home!
Then that prominent triangle between Rajeev-Gunjan-Vihaan was awesome!
Gunjan and Vihaan staring at each other and Rajeev looking at Gunjan. Gunjan had a scared expression; Vihaan, an aggressive expression and our hero, a curious one!
This means that Rajeev will do anything in his power to get to the bottom of the situation but will not be involved romantically!
Because Vihaan was half-hugging Gunjan whilst Rajeev was the odd one out, just looking!
Shail's trust in Rajeev was remarkable!
That concretes the fact that Rajeev and Gunjan won't happen! A mother trust a man with her daughter only when she's certain that the man is no less a brother to the girl!
Shail further stated that she will not give her blessings to Vihaan! That means that he will never succeed in his dangerous game!
Seema and Sangeeta were once again, doing what they did best!
Putting down Gunjan and poisoning Rachna's mind!
However, I loved how Mayank showed Seema her place! He's finally standing up for Gunjan, the least he can do as a human being!
I'm glad Charu wasn't present in this scene!
And Shail sending Gunjan to her room was good! The girl need not stay there and listen to taunts!
However, she still heard! This means that Seema and Sangeeta and the family's disapproval will forever haunt her ears! Reason why she was covering her ears! She was trying to block out the evil words, but alas, she couldn't!
The Mayank and Gunjan scenes!
The brief staring session between Mayank and Gunjan said alot! He was smiling, obviously happy to have her home and she was disturbed, obviously scared and sad to be home! That means that if it's eventually Mayank and Gunjan, it will take a while for her to some around!
Coming to the night scene, Gunjan was having peaceful sleep, whilst the lamp illuminated her with it's light and in comes Mayank staring at her, whilst he's in the dark!
That is exactly what is happening currently!
Mayank is in the dark about Vihaan's plan whilst Gunjan knows everything!
However, he slowly came, backing the light, meaning it will take him sometime to figure out everything clearly!
What captured my attention was Mayank covering Gunjan with the same pink blanket that he was removing a few weeks ago! I mentioned in my analysis, then, that the pink blanket represents love and nurturing and Mayank was trying to hurt her by removing that blanket! However, today he was covering her with the same blanket, meaning that he will forever ensure that she won't be hurt in the future!
Perfect loop closure!
The triangle between Shail-Gunjan-Rachna was ultimately painful!
Gunjan and Rachna looking at each other with painful expressions and Shail looking back and forth between the two!
Poor mother is torn between two daughters! A mother can never differentiate, however, she gives attention to the child that needs to most at the moment! That's why Rachna has been blowing things out of proportion in my eyes!
Shail gave precedence to Gunjan because she was missing, whilst Rachna was safe and sound at home! I'm not saying that Rachna is wrong, but I'm just saying that she was being unreasonably stubborn!
Hence, the reason why Shail was looking back and forth between Gunjan and Rachna!
She has to come to a realisation as to who needs the most attention right now! When the engagement fiasco occurred, Shail was with Rachna because she needed her the most then, no doubt Gunjan needed her! Likewise, Gunjan needs her most now, whilst Rachna still needs her.
Lastly, the bed scene between Gunjan and Rachna was awesome!
Right from the beginning, the sharing of the bed represented their bond, however, today, both refuse to sleep on the bed that will bond them!
So as soon as everything is sorted, we'll see them sharing a bed once again!
That's all today guys, hope I lived up to your expectations!
I felt overall, it was a very good episode!
Love to all!
Oh...I just remembered something I didn't mention in my take!
The Precap was the promo, however, there was an extended part where they showed how Mayank got hold of the letter!
He was building paper airplanes for Dholu and one of the papers was the letter. Planes signify a new destination, hope for the better and most importantly, moving on. But that letter was never turned into a plane, meaning that it was not allowed to take a new destination(Gunjan and Vihaan). Mayank was about to make it into a plane(the day he married Charu) but he stopped at last moment(now repenting) and he will solve the mystery, I guess. So MayAn fans, you guys can celebrate!
Love to all!
Another thing worth mentioning is the way it was shown that both Gunjan and Rachna were reminiscing about their good times! That means that they both miss each other equally!
Guys, the separation of the sisters won't last for long!
