Rumi has put up a big portrait of hers in the room just to irk Hamza and he flirts his way to her heart. Now, is this all still a game or is he falling for her without realizing it?

Mr and Mrs Stoic / Azeem also resolve their differences. Hamna aisa sada munh banati hai. Mood kharab kar Diya.

Our tigress Rumi picks up a fight with random women who peer at Hamza. This possessive behaviour impresses Hamza. What does he do? Call Hamna and tell her how much Rumi loves him. Azeem calls Hamna at the same time and gets engage tone and becomes more stone faced than ever. He then spots Hamna talking to Sharique. Though they are discussing Rumi and Hamza, Azeem can draw the obvious conclusion, right? Argh! Make this stop!

But wait, there is more cringe coming your way. Hamza orders her to meet him, and she still doesn’t tell Azeem. Kyu behen?

Rumi also fights with Alishba, worrying Saman. Can Rumi survive at her job? Hamna comes to Rumi’s house. Hamza glares at Hamna all the time and guess who reads between the lines? Alishba. Alishba’s character has suddenly turned savage, irking Rumi.  There is only one person who can best Alishba in this multi-way war: Hamza.
