The day starts off with Anuj confessing about him feeling guilty over the fact that, even though he had loved Anupamaa for her selfless nature and simplicity, he is now trying to change the very same nature of hers. Anupamaa, meanwhile, cries inconsolably on her bed for having spoken in front of Dheeraj, who had visited them for the first time.
Seeing Anuj in such a sticky situation, Dheeraj takes charge of the situation and makes him realize his mistakes and shortcomings. Amidst his conversation with Anuj, Dheeraj tells him that Priyanka, the love of his life-turned wife, is no more and that, today, he is repenting for having let her go because of his larger-than-life ego. He reveals that, after their marriage differences had cropped in between them and that Priyanka had succumbed to cancer. Dheeraj requests Anuj not to repeat the same mistake with Anupamaa that he had done with Priyanka.
Back home at the Shah House, Vanraj is extremely worried about Kaavya’s return. He is also unable to reach her as her cell phone is switched off. When a worried Vanraj waits at the doorstep awaiting the return of Kaavya, suddenly he sees three young men dropping her from their car. Even though he chooses to remain tightlipped about it outside, he questions her the reason for her coming late once they are inside the house. That’s when a super-excited Kaavya wants to share how happy her day was. She also apologizes to Vanraj for not informing him about her coming late because her phone battery had drained out. Vanraj also points out to Kaavya that, while she was addressing him as ‘V’ before, suddenly, she has started calling him by his name- Vanraj!
Seeing a tensed up Vanraj at the breakfast table in the night, a concerned Baa comes to him and tells him that she understands what he is passing through. Hinting at Kaavya, she also adds that, daughter-in-laws of respectable families should know their limitations.
