Kanta gets emotional hearing Anupama and Devika’s discussion. Anuj asks her what happened. Kanta says when a girl grows up, a mother decides her what to wear, whom to befriend, when and how to get out of house, etc.; even she was a same mother and never let Anu befriend anyone, she realized that she was wrong during Anu’s divorce and thought a friend is always needed in life, be it a boy or a girl. She apologizes Devika and thanks Anuj for proving her wrong and making her realize that a friend is just a friend and not boy or girl. She asks Anuj’s phone and clicks Anu, Anuj, an Devika’s pic.
At night, Kinjal with Nandini gives medicine to Bapuji. Bapuji says Anu left junior Anu here. Kinjal says she will. Bapuji says she should become Anupama version 2 and not 1 who used to silently suffer without opposing for injustice towards her, she shouldn’t make a mistake which he and Anu did and should fight for her justice.
Kavya walks in with milk and thinks she wanted to impress Bapuji, but Kinjal has already taken over. Once Kinjal and Nandini leave, Kavya offers milk to Bapuji and asks if he is still angry on her. She says she is angry more on her son and wife. She asks if he will not forgive her like a father. He says if he becomes father, he will scold her and try to correct her, which she will not like, so its better be a father-in-law as every FIL can be father but every DIL cannot be a daughter. Kavya gets angry and thinks she tries to impress one and other gets angry, how Anu used to manage all this.
Anu, Anuj, and Devika enjoy lively friendship moments dancing and laughing on Dil Chahta Hai.. song. Toshu walks to his room hoping Anu is fine and thinking he is angry on her, but he is also her son. He gets angry Pakhi and Kinjal watching Anu, Anuj, and Devika’s pic on Devika’s social media account. Kinjal asks what is he doing here at this time. He asks if he shouldn’t, why she rudely behaves with her. She says because he rudely behaves with mummy. Their argument starts. He says she is close to his mom, why she has problem if he is getting close to her mom. She says she never said that. He says she wants to be a perfect bahu, why she doesn’t want to be a perfect wife. She says she wants to be with her husband but not with a son who doesn’t respect his mother, so the choice is his.
Devika acts as sleeping to let Anu and Anuj speak. Anuj says he will leave as GK must be waiting for him and asks his jacket. Anu returns his jacket and he walks away wishing her goodnight. Dil Hai Ke Manta Hi Nahi..song plays in the background. Devika fumes that Anuj speaks a lot, but cannot express what is in his heart; she should do something after which he speaks his heart out. Anu thanks god for tension-free day today and prays him to take care of everyone.
Kavya fixes her nameplate on door and grins. She wakes up and realizes it was her dream. Next morning, Baa prepares laddoos murmuring its her house and she doesn’t care if Anu leaves her house, she will celebrate diwali alone and will never be happy. Kavya walks to her and asks what is she murmuring. Baa says she will prepare special dishes and will make Anu jealous, Anu’s diwali and whole life will be dark forever. Kavya thinks she doesn’t want to spoil her first diwali in kitchen.
Vanraj asks Baa to stop cursing Anu has she is gone. Bapuji shows nazar battu/gift to Kinjal which he bought for Anu’s new house, to ward off evil from Anu’s life. Baa asks if Anu’s mother also kicked her out of house and starts yelling at Anu and her mother. Kavya back her. Bapuji stops Baa. She offers him sweets, but he denies saying sweetness should be in lives first. Vanraj requests Bauji not to go on festival day. Bapuji says even if he stays here, his mind will be Anu’s house, so he can’t. Kinjal brings halwa for Anu. Baa shouts at her to keep it back. Bapuji asks Kavya to keep halwa box and walks out with her. Kavya provokes Baa. Baa reminiscing Bapuji’s changed behavior towards her shouts she doesn’t care if he leaves and throws sweets. Anu with all her supporters visits her new house and performs pooja.
Precap: Vanraj shouts at Dolly that Anu is most important to her and they are evil for her, so she should get out of their house right now. Anuj gifts a fairytale snow globe to Anu. Dolly replies Vanraj that one who troubles others can never be happy. Anu enjoys diwali with her supporters.
