To the point Arnav announces the end of his relationship, and renders most of the family speechless. Nani was seriously pissed off, and for the first time I appreciated the role of ASR in his family, and how hard it must have been for him to always have them ALL depend on him, his life, his choices so much, I can't imagine the stress which goes with that, but he seems to take it in his stride.
I think today, the responsibilities ASR shoulders, the stress and load of having so many people depend on him, the choices he makes affecting them was most obvious today. Like you mentioned in your other post, nobody asked how he felt about the break up just as they did not listen to him when he said he did not want to get married. But he does handle the stress well.
Nice exchange between him and Akaash "What I do with my life shouldn't affect yours, so live your own." Nicely said.
Mami is just a pathetic opportunist as always. Imagine thinking nothing of not one, but even her own son's broken engagement just so she can get away with not having a poor girl for a daughter-in-law.
Angali, again a disappointment. "You can do this, and that's that." Kudos again to Arnav for standing his ground.
No surprise there with Anjali and her tears and emotional blackmail.
Khushi gets the truth out of La, and is shocked, angry. I'll come back to her in a minute.
I didn't understand the need for an announcement that the engagement was not going to happen. It could have been left for the next day, but I suppose the CVs feel they know what they're doing.
The invitations sent out to people were originally meant for ASR - La engagement. Payash engagement was finalized later and may not have even been added to the original invitation card. Guests came expecting Ar-La engagement. Perhaps that is why he wanted to clarify he was not getting engaged that evening.
Lavanya stands alone when the announcement is made, watching as Arnav braves the crowd, keeping it impersonal, to the point and giving Akaash/Payal their rightful moment in the spotlight.
Khushi is furious, and I can understand her to a certain point because Lavanya is her friend. So, it's a little justified that she is angry and upset for her. But, not just her, but ALL of them have without explanation decided that the fault lies solely with Arnav... And, while I can understand why, and don't disagree, I couldn't help but chuckle to myself as to how clueless Khushi is about the whole thing. La IS in essence leaving because of her, the relationship DID end because of her shadow... I guess she will realize all that in time.
She needs to realize she played a small part in La's heartbreak, she brought La back (for whatever reason) when they broke up last time. She is also the person who gave La ideas about getting married when La was perfectly happy with whatever arrangement ASR and La had between them.
Pre-Cap, showing a pool side confrontation. Because even after Arnav very specifically saying it's a personal matter between him and La, and Lavanya asking Khushi to not push it, our darling girl cannot let the matter rest, till she hunts him down, and demands answers. I'm going to ALSO put that down to her subconscious wanting to know, seeking out the truth, while her more conscious self is convinced she's just doing it because she's selfless and kind.
Ahhh, the pool side They both like to jump to the worst possible conclusions about each other, isn't it ?!!
My hope, is that her tears in the pre-cap and explanation to Arnav about KNOWING how it feels to suffer a break up are to do with him in some way and not Shayam. Because she CANNOT possibly be hurt to that extent over what happened with the snake. She cannot be heartbroken like Lavanya is, cannot know what it is to lose someone you love like Lavanya knows, and certainly cannot know what it feels like to not be loved by your fiance whom you love very much, the way Lavanya knows. There is just no comparison between the two relationships, because she never felt for Shayam what La feels for ASR. In fact, Khushi would in my opinion be better able to sympathize with Arnav on this one.. It's something they have in common.. Not being able to love the person they were engaged to, because they were secretly in love with someone else.
Hope so but the way KKG told Anjali about her engagement being called off with Anjali thinking her fiance broke it off, I am thinking CVs will do something similar with ASR, to leave room to future misunderstandings.
That's my take for today. No funnies, because I didn't see any.
