I can't believe we're still on the same day!!!
We start with Ahem drinking his green tea and Hetal showing Kokila the list that Rashi made of the supplies that are needed. Koki looks a little impressed here and decides that Rashi can be the one to buy the things. Rashi says ok but first wants to go and check on Gopi. Even Ahem is a little shocked at this. Rashi says it's because Koki and Hetal must be tired by now from going up and down the stairs - way to make the moms feel old!! Koki says ok and if she's awake tell me so I can feed her. Rashi here says I will feed her if she's awake. Ahem looks towards his mum at this point to see what she's going to say. Rashi then begs a little by saying please and Kokila agrees. I'll be honest I was just watching Ahem during this part because he looked so gorgeous!! And also why are Rashi and Kokila ruining the romantic moments that could be between husband and wife??? It should be Ahem feeding her!!!
Kokila is in thinking mode about Rashi.
Rashi sees that Gopi is awake and says good, I;ll feed you now and helps her up after seeing Gopi try and get up on her own. She begins to feed Gopi who makes a face and says that there is a bitter taste in her mouth and she'll eat the kedgeree later. Rashi says ok I'll do something for you - even Gopi is worried about what Rashi might do!!!
Next scene we're at the market. I'm surprised that Rashi isn't feeling worried about going out alone in the evening again!! After all it was only recently when she was abducted but hey ho. Also surprised that the Modi's let her go alone but I suppose they're thinking lightning can't strike twice in the same place!!
Rashi is at a food stall thinking about what Gopi would like - says a lot about the sisterhood!! Gopi knows the likes and dislikes of evryone in her family!!
From behind we hear the dreaded voice call out to stallholder to make a plate of sevpuri as she likes it a lot. Rashi turns around to see... her mother!!! It's only been a day for Pete's sake!!
She starts on her rubbish about if Rashi needed to come to Rajpal Nagar then she should have told her, she would have parcelled the food to her!! And then straight away starts asking her about Kagdi!!! and Rashi might have come here alone because Koki was hassling her. Rashi says no she came to get Gopi some chaat!!!! Urmila is disgusted. And can't believe that Rashi is fetching and carrying for Gopi and has become her servant. Rashi tells her mum to be quiet and Urmi says fine do whatever you want and shoves her out of the way to get a plate of food for herself and says Rashi will pay for it.
Rashi then asks Urmi what Gopi likes in chaat (seriously Rashi you expect your mum to know???) Urmi unsurprisingly answers how should I know!! Rashi then says maybe she likes sevpuri like me.
Urmila says something here that I wish Ahem was around to hear!!!! She says that when I used to get you some I used to give her one bite and she used to savour it a lot!! Rashi seems upset hearing this (her sad background music is playing) and says maybe that's why she's not getting one bite of anything these days. (I didn't reaalise that the Modi's had banned her from food!!) Urmi asks her what is wrong Rashi says nothing and tells the stallholder to pack a plate for her and tells Urmi she needs to get the supplies for puja and go home. Urmila asks for a platet o be packed and Rashi says leave it mum you've had some now, I have to account for the money when I get home.
Ahem is on the phone with Koki listening behind. Turns out Jigar is confused about a file so Ahem has to go back to work to help him. Now the bell rings and Koki asks Meethi to answer it. Rashi is back laden with bags, most of which she hands to Meethi. Ahem walks away - I'm assuming to his room to get changed for work.
Next we see Rashi entering Gopi's room with a bag in which she has the sevpuri. She reminds Gopi of when they used to eat sevpuri when they were younger (seriously Rashi? You want to remind poor Gopi of how mami used to gives her the smallest amount?) Gopi declines it at first but Rashi convinces her to eat it, just as Gopi agrees and is about to have some Hetal and Koki enter and Koki shouts at Rashi. Koki asks Gopi who brought it and she stammeringly says Rashiben. Kokila and Hetal are annoyed at Rashi. Rashi expalins that Gopi has had enough of kedgeree so she thought she'd give her something else. Hetal speaks up!!! and tells Rashi that the doc has told Gopi to eat kedgeree.
Rashi explains that she just wanted to give her a taste of something else with the kedgeree. Koki tells her to stop and asks what the need was to get food from outside? When they could have homemade sevpuri to change the taste. Rashi then answers that she is banned from the kitchen so how could she have made it. (Bad move Rashi!!!) Koki says she could have asked either of the moms they would have made. She takes the kedgeree and the sevpuri, telling that she will warm the kedgeree and come and feed Gopi herself, saying there's no point giving the responsibility to someone else who will always make mistakes and never learn, she leaves in anger! Hetal leaves behind her calling her name.
Rashi is upset and Gopi then apologises to Rashi because she got into trouble because of her. Now Gopi says something here which makes me believe she finally believes that Rashi was to blame for the wedding thing. She says that she understands in which circumstances Rashi got married and it will take time for everyone to trust her again. (Maybe I'm reading too much into it)
Downstairs Koki is storming off in anger (in the opposite direction to the kitchen) when Hetal tells her to stop. Koki is annoyed because Rashi brought outside food knowing full well that Gopi shouldn't be eating it. Hetal tells her she knows that it was wrong but to calm down as the anger isn't good for her and to Java de na. To which Koki replies that how can I leave it? First she does wrong and then she answers back that we forbade her from going into the kitchen. Hetal tells her to leave it and that at least Gopi didn't eat any of it.
The phone rings and Hetal answers, it's baa informing them when she will be coming back.
A nonsense scene in Urmi's house where Kinjal is eating crisps and drinking cola which Urmila thinks will be bad for her modelling!! And thinks that all the modelling money will go because she will get fat.
Hetal tells Koki that Baa will be back and to tell someone to come to the airport to get her. Hetal says she wanted to go but they are taking care of the kitchen and Gopi so who will go? Koki said either Ahem or Jigar will go, who just happen to be there (Woohoo the boys are back!!) They walk up to their moms and say hi (ok they say Jai Shree Krishna) and Ahem asks who's going where? Koki tells them that Baa is coming tomorrow and one of them will have to go get her. Both boys looks happy and Jigar quickly offers her services! Both moms look happy and Hetal tells them that food is ready and to freshen up nad get ready. Hetal asks about Chirag Ahem tells him he's coming.
Koki tells Ahem to tell Gopi that she will be bringing the warmed food up to her. Everyone goes about their business.
Rashi is setting the table when Jigar comes back. He doesn't say a word to her and just sits doesn. Rashi is upset and is about to drop a plate when Koki and Ahem are walking to the table. Koki calls out Rashi nad then tells her not too angrily that plates go on the table and not dropped on the floor and to take care.
All the Modi's come to the table bar Gopi. Hetal asks Koki if Gopi has eaten, Koki answers yes and taunts Rashi by saying that yes she did and didn't need sevpuri to make the taste better, Ahem looks up and asks Sevpuri? Koki is about to tell Ahem but Hetal interrupts by serving him the food. Which is good because Rashi has laready been shouted at and there's no need to bring it up again.
Parag speaks up and says to Koki that he's heard that baa's coming - I'm not going into this because I feel it was unnecessarily harsh to Parag here. There was no need to show that Koki still thinks Parag is useless.
Ahem is in the room with his laptop and sees Gopi being all restless!! He looks a bit irritated but eventually puts the laptop down and asks her what's wrong and why she's not sleeping. She says she's been sleeping all day and can't now. He's quite lovely here telling her to not worry and to close her eyes and try. On his way back he sees a LUDO set and asks her where it came from - Rashi who else would bring it??
Gopi then says in childhood she and Panna used to play. Ahem says Panna? That child? You used to play with her? At your age (Hey there's no age limit for Ludo!! Next you'll be saying I'm I mean Gopi's too old for hide and seek!!!)
Gopi looks a little embarrassed, so he says ok.
She then shocks us all by asking Ahem to play Ludo with her!! I think even Ahem is shocked because he asks her to repeat it louder. He looks a little taken aback and the episode ends.
How late were they playing Ludo that Ahem is late to work????
This would have been posted a lot earlier but mummy wanted Suji ka Halva and me being the dutiful daughter offered to make it, so had to leave this half done.
However I did love the episode.
I'm assuming the Modi's decided to leave the Puja for when Baa comes back now and we'll see it on Monday.
