Age is Just a Number 5 September 2020: Vaidika was convinced that Aarya can’t fall in love with someone like Puneesh. Aarya says parents must control the life of their children to a limited extent, she must realize she is a practical girl of this age and took her decision rightfully. Aarya was conscious of Puneesh’s presence behind the wall and slaps the door at Vaidika’s face. Vaidika was tensed and wonders what’s it that Aarya decided to marry that Puneesh overnight and is now hiding this. Inside the room, Aarya cries thinking she can never tell Vaidika why she took this step.
Sahil walks to the house cautiously hiding from Vaidika. Vaidika spots him and questions where he had been, if he is drunk? Sahil pushes her and tells her to stay away from him, much rudely and alienated manner. She was worried and asks what has happened to him? Sahil at once becomes apologetic, he says he doesn’t realize what’s going on in his mind, a lot has changed in his life over the few days. He only doesn’t want to stress her, she needs peace of mind. Sahil had been daydreaming, Vaidika just came downstairs and finds Sahil knelt of the floor with his hands joint. She consoles him and helps him to couch for rest, as they have to do a lot. She takes his shoes off, crying while he had fallen asleep. She sits beside him while he holds her hand under his head while asleep on the couch.
In the room, Aarya stood with a handcuff for Puneesh. He asks what it is. Aarya says he has been flirting with his husband, he should now stop being surprised like old men in front of her. Puneesh happily lay on the bed while Aarya ties his hand with the bed post. She asks him to take his clothes off, he was excited. Aarya takes her cell phone to create an insta-story. It’s popular in their generation and she will get much likes. She leaves the room mischievously while Puneesh was left resisting. Outside the room, Aarya smirks thinking Puneesh must soon realize why she is doing all this, she is Aarya Mathur and isn’t afraid of him.
Vaidika finds herself in front of a series of mirror while standing in dark room. She calls Sahil as she was fearful. Soon, Sahil appears in the mirrors. She was relieved and turns around but Sahil was nowhere to be seen behind her, it was only a delusional visual of Sahil in the mirror. Vaidika screams for Sahil. Vaidika wakes up from the nightmare, she was sweating and heart raced. She wonders why she had such a dream when Sahil is alive and even returned. She looks around for him but he wasn’t in the hall anymore.
Vaidika stood in front of the mirror when Sahil returns home. She asks where he had been. He replies he went for jogging. Vaidika smells cigarette from his shirt and asks if he was smoking? Sahil hides his looks and makes up that someone in the garden must be smoking, else he never smokes. He turns to go fresh. Vaidika holds his hand and asks him to apply the sindoor. Their relation is an identity of the true love that Sahil has taught her, she just had a nightmare but Sahil can restore the trust in their relation. Sahil was taken aback at the demand and says he can apply it tomorrow, as right now he is sweating badly. Vaidika offers him her dress to wipe off his sweat. He finally picks the sindoor but his hands trembled.
Sahil recognizes the girl as Daisy and tells Bari Amma she is the daughter of his babysitter in childhood times. Puneesh asks why she then recognized him as Jacky. Sahil says her mother Lata was a fan of Jacky Shroff, so she called him Jacky. Prachi can’t remember who Lata was. Vaidika stops Sahil from explaining himself, and confronts Prachi that not everyone is a betrayer like her husband. Why he couldn’t let the pooja take place. Daisy sits on the floor saying she can’t leave without her share in pooja. Sahil takes Daisy outside to drop her. Puneesh thinks there is surely something wrong which he must find.
Sahil and Daisy go out in each other’s arms to have ice cream. He tells Daisy that right now he is Sahil Agarwal, Daisy must stay away from his family at every cost. Puneesh follows her.
Nani comes to Usha’s house and asks for a box of sugar. Usha goes inside. Nani finds a photo album on the floor and opens it. It was the album with Usha and children. Usha snatches the album and tells Nani to leave her house, she is no friend to know everything. After Nani has curtly left, Usha breathes of relief as if Manjula had seen the next video, her presence here and connection with all of them must have revealed.
Vaidika sat in her room wondering where Bhoomi could and Ved go, Bhoomi is not replying to her calls. She wish Ved returns home and her unborn child is able to save his life. She was distressed that she left both her children.
Prachi was curt watching Puneesh’s disgraceful video in the room. She was curt wondering how Aarya forwarded her such disgraceful video. Aarya stood behind her in the room, she looks in the mirror and asks if her sindoor looks perfect? She reminds Prachi of the deal and says if she wants to cradle her and Puneesh’s child, she must keep a distance from her. Someone dropped something behind them. Vaidika stood behind and questions how dare Aarya even considered such a filthy deal with them. Aarya tries being rude with Vaidika and replies she is old enough to take some of her life’s decisions. Vaidika tells Aarya that Sahil taught her to fight for herself. Aarya is her life, she will fight for her life and anyone ruining it no matter if its Aarya herself. She drags Aarya outside into her own room. Aarya was crying and tries to explain herself. Vaidika takes her mangal sooter off and pours the whole jug of water to wash her sindoor. Both mother and daughter now badly cried. Vaidika asks how could she decide to marry such a filthy man, couldn’t she discuss it with her? She turns to leave the room. Aarya asks Vaidika how they will save Ved if she doesn’t do all this. She tells Vaidika that Puneesh has kidnapped Bhoomi and Ved and kept them in a hiding, he conditioned that if she wants to save Ved then she must marry him and give him a child.
Vaidika was broken and about to fell down when Sahil comes there and support Vaidika. She cries for help from Sahil. He asks Aarya what Puneesh said about Ved. Aarya says she was trying to trap Puneesh In his own game. Vaidika says she can’t let Aarya be with Puneesh. Aarya assures Vaidika she can’t let Puneesh come close to herself, even touch herself; doesn’t she trust her? Sahil tells Vaidika that sometimes, to deal with bastards one has to become a bastard too. He promises to find Bhoomi and Ved both.
