Prashant tries to get ansh on his side, showing his pics with arti at their wedding. Ansh asks why isnt he in these photos. Prashant says that kids come aftre parenst marry. He asks how come he was in yash and artis marriage then. Prashnat tells him that it was artis second marriage and that the first time was the real one when she married him. ansh however retaliates, saying that where was he when he called for him during his childhood and why and where had he gone, after leaving arti and himself. He hugs ansh and tries to tell him that he would give him every luxury from now on and for that he had left arti and ansh, to be able to earn money
for them. But she didnt wait for him and married yash due to his money. yash too married arti for his want of a son. He tries to plant negative ideas in anshs head that his mother sold ansh, for money. But ansh doesnt listen to him, saying that his parents love him very much. but prashant still keeps instigating ansh saying its his mother who9 lied and not him, and for that she was punished by suraj too. he hugs ansh who doesnt seem to know whats happening.
Meanwhile, yash and arti reach the playground and frantically search around for ansh. While ansh is with prashant, arti spots them and calls out to him. Prashant immediately changes his mood, and says that ansh was feeling hungry and hence he got him some icecream. He tries to give ansh a gift, but she throws it all away and takes him away. Ansh on his way back, relates what prashant told him and arti is angered that prashant said all this to ansh and tried to corrupt his mind.
Arti comes back to prashant and reprimands him for having put wrong ideas in her head. But prashant falsely accuses her of being from a modest family, and therefore marrying yash for his money and being a low standard girl like her, never really loved yash, just married him for the sake of his money and status. Arti slaps him real hard and he threatens her that she would have to bear the consequences. when she gets to slap again, he holds her hand and doesnt let go even when she and ansh tried hard. Arti, whose hand prashant has held asking her to hit him, snatches her hand away from him and takes ansh and begins to leave. When prashant tries to follow them, yash intervenes and throws him on the ground threatening that if he ever tried to disturb anybody from his family again, he would kill him. yash leaves with arti and ansh.
Prashant who is lying on the ground is lent a hand by suraaj in being able to get up. when he is confused as to why suraj is helping him, suraj puts his queries to rest citing the reason that he wants to retrieve yash from arti and prashant wants revenge from the girl who took his son away from him and insulted him in front of everyone and therefore they can make a pact to help each other.
Location: Yashs house
While the girls are playing, ansh and arti are in a sulken mood. Yash comes and arti tells him that what happened between them and prashant in front of ansh, has affected ansh severely.

But arti is still a little tensed.
Location: In the playground
Prashant says that he would destroy arti and take each and every revenge, for whatever she has doen to him. Suraj agrees saying that it would fulfill two tasks, his revenge and surajs son going back to his family. Prashant asks how would this happen. Suraj says that artis biggest strength is yashs love and his support, but everyone has certain weaknesses too. Suraj reminds prashant of an old parable where the queens soul was trapped in a parrot and whenever the parrot was disturbed or tortured, the queen herself submitted to every torture by the trapper. This sets prashant to thinking hard. The screen freezes on his face.
Precap: Prashant gives arti a legal notice citing it as a revenge for her slap. when she reads it, she is horrified to find that prashant has applied to the court for anshs custody. Prashant says that this has been done since ansh is his son and he would get him back from her. Artio is shocked.
