Episode starts with Khanderao saying I never saw you so tensed before in these eight years, why, its me, Khanderao, your best friend, not a stranger, why are you scared of me. She holds her hand and says this isn’t fear. He asks what’s this, tell me. She says you won’t understand.
He says then explain me, what is this if not fear. He holds her face. He says its me with you, no need to worry. She says I have no worry, when you are with me, I m fine. He holds her hand and takes her to the bed. They sit. He compliments her. She smiles. He says before you get tensed and faint,
I will tell you, there is no hurry, I will not force you, I have a habit to wait, I know, we both have waited for this moment, we know each other since childhood, but this is a new phase of life for us, we are also new for each other, I don’t know how much you changed in the last 7 years, what you think and want, you also don’t know me.
She smiles. He says a new face came in front of you after seven years, you will get worried for sure, that’s why you got shivering by my touch, right. She nods. He says come, we will have talks, I will get my friend and my wife, you will get your husband. She smiles. They sit talking. She laughs hearing his stories.She falls asleep. He sees her and smiles. He kisses her hand and goes. Ahilya wakes up after sometime. She doesn’t see Khanderao beside. She looks around. She finds him too drunk. She cries.
He says you are so beautiful, I never imagined that my wife will be so beautiful. She says I never imagined to see you drunk, since when are you drinking. He says if you are my wife, then this wine is my lover. He makes another drink. She tries to stop him. He drinks. She says this is poison, it has no happiness, since when do you have this bad habit. He sleeps. She asks him to get up. She sits crying. She looks at the room. She recalls how Khanderao got drunk. She takes Khanderao to the bed and makes him sleep. She sits crying.
