I must be dense!!!
It took me 3 watches to make out why Asad hit Zoya.
What i mean is, YES. I was here on the forum yesterday defending the slap- and I KNEW ASAD was JUSTIFIED in that fit of rage...
But now I get what was Asad's thought process.
After that WONDERFUL WONDERFUL talk with Tamatar, Asad does not even meet Zoya's eyes. He ignores her completely.
He needs a moment of solitude for the facts to sink in. He has been that pillar of support for Najma- who is fearful of the future...and he himself is too..What was happening to his Ammi?
And the events of the day replayed in his mind...(Not necessarily in the order it had occurred.)
First, Dilavar had come to his OFFICE and THREATENED him.
The next thing he remembers is the phone call he had made...Ammi had picked it up and HER LAST WORDS were,"Asad, Ek minute, betaa..." and "Mariammm..."
How did Ammi know about Mariam?
Is that how Zoya had obeyed his orders?
So, she had confessed to his Ammi about Mariam and got her permission to stay?
And when he had asked her about Mariam, she had SIMPLY LIED THROUGH HER TEETH?
She had said Mariam had left?
If Ms. New York thought he was orthodox and judgemental...he really did not care.
But DID SHE DARE DISOBEY his orders?
After what she had put him through already?
Did she not know she was PLAYING WITH FIRE HERE?
And her precious FEMINISM was GOING TO COST HIM HIS DEAR AMMI'S LIFE?
She had something coming for her when the lion roared!!!
For when the LION IS PUSHED BEYOND HIS LIMITS,
He does not see...
He does not think...
He does not roar...
He simply TEARS APART...
Zoya is lucky she escaped with a slap...that was because she was a woman!
Remember what he did to Haseens Bi's brother for terrorising Ayan?
And Ammi is MUCH MUCH more than Ayan- He had himself told Ayan that, the previous night...
What a beautiful episode!
What a gripping story!!!
