The episode begins with Raman (Karan Patel) engaged in a phone conversation where he says that he will not contact the police for help, otherwise, Nidhi would harm Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi). Ruhi brings dinner for him and overhears the conversation. She asks Pihu to give company to Raman and cheer him up. Pihu goes to her father’s room and starts narrating a story to Raman. Ruhi discreetly sees Raman and Pihu bond and smiles to herself.
The next morning brings tension for the Bhallas and Iyers. Raman enters the scene and assures everyone that he will bring Ishita back. Mihir comes and tells Raman that they can pretend to have a fight in front of Ashok so that Ashok falls in the trap and trusts Mihir. Raman tells Mihir that Ashok will not believe the drama as he knows that Mihir is family. Mani steps in and says that he could enact the drama. Ashok would believe him because he is not family. In the middle of making the plan, Ruhi enters the scene and everyone stops. Raman assures them that Ruhi is now a part of the family and will not let out anything before Nidhi.
Meanwhile, the kidnappers lock Ishita in a room and leave. Ishita somehow grabs a mobile phone and makes a call to Raman, but one of the kidnappers catches her. After receiving Ishita’s call, the family decides to contact the police but the kidnappers call Raman and warn him against doing so.
