Mummy comes to Neha and asks her why she is crying. Neha reiterates that she wont leave this house. Why another house for them. Father says that he wanted them to live alone together for some time. And this is essential for the success of every newly married life. Mummy says that once they are alone Abhi will care more about coming back on time since right now he is carefree thinking that parents are with Neha. Mummy gives Neha the keys. But Neha says that she is not ready for this yet and gives the keys back to Mummy.
Mummy tells Papa that she knew Neha would not accept it. Papa says that we are lucky to have such a daughter in law else the moment son is married he wants to take the wife away. Now they know how much their children love them. He however says that he is certain that Neha will agree to shift eventually. Mummy says that they had been lucky once earlier too but she could not see it. Papa tells her to stop thinking about the past and berating herself all the time. She needs to move on. Mummy cries that how will they live alone. Papa says that they are not alone, but are together and will live a full life, go for walks etc. Mummy says that looks like Radha is having her effect on you talking of walks. He says that the other day she was also putting a face pack. He says that even though they are in the twilight of their life does not mean they have to live like recluse.
Neha and Abhi are in bed talking about the house shifting. Abhi says no one will force Neha to shift if she does not want to. Neha tells him that she does not want to be branded as the daughter in law who made the son shift out of the house. In any case the parents are getting old and need support. Abhi tells her that they will be around, in any case the suggestion came from the parents.
Abhi and Neha go to Simran's house. Abhi tells her that did not expect to see her there. Simran asks them what they would like to drink. They refuse. Neha is in her thoughts. Simran asks her what is wrong. Neha says nothing. Simran asks Abhi what he has done to annoy Neha. Abhi tells Simran not to put the blame on him if Neha's mood is spoilt. Simran insists and asks Neha the problem. She explains about the house problem. Abhi goes to see Astha leaving them to talk. Simran urges Neha to accept the house offer. Tells her that their relationship needs space and the good thing is that the parents have offered it themselves. Abhi and Neha are driving back, Abhi asks her even though Simran has said the same thing as his parents, why is she upset. Neha tells him that if everyone is of the same opinion, she will accept but she would like to consult her mom as well. Abhi turns the car to Radha's house.
Abhi's parents are happy that they have reached a decision to shift. Neha says that though they have agreed, they want them to meet every 2 days and talk on phone everyday. Mummy agrees readily. Neha says that she has lost the habit of living alone. Papa says that both houses will belong to all of them. They will come and go as they like. Mummy says that they are only giving them four walls and a roof, but it is Neha who will make it into a home by giving it her touch.
Rashmi and Pranay go to meet Manas. Pranay says he is sure Urmila will get justice in the end. Pranay offers help. Manas refuses saying that he does not need anyone's help, it only creates trouble. Pranay tells him that he hopes that their help wont be needed and they leave. Rashmi is upset with what Manas said. Pranay tells her not to think of it that way. Manas is under tremendous pressure and has a lot of anger for Abhi and Simran. He asks her whether she would think the same had Manas levied allegations against someone else.
Pranay calls Simran and tells her the same thing. She says she understands. Manas comes to the hospital to attend to a patient. Simran is annoyed since she had asked him to stay and rest at home.
Manas is upset with the patient's parents. He shouts at them. The patient's father enquires about Manas's injury. He tells them to mind their business. Just then Abhi comes in. He apologises for anything he may have done. Manas shouts at him too telling him that he is sure Simran sent him. Abhi says he came on his own knowing that Manas is upset. And everyone involved in this case only has Manas's best interest in mind. He tells him to change his attitude or he will alienate everyone and be left all alone. Manas tells him that everyone is ready to read him a sermon. He is not interested. He will fight alone and does not need anyone's help. They should leave him alone and get lost.
