Let’s review episode 26. I was not waiting for it. Even though this episode showed a lot, the story did not move, even an inch.
If you’re new to this drama and interested in knowing the characters and previous episodes’ reviews, and you should, read here. It will help you understand the story better.
PLOT SUMMARY & COMMENTARY
Aina is out and about to collect proofs for Farooq’s innocence. Good luck with that!
She sees her childhood house but the man who tells her the route also tells her that she shouldn’t go there. Another man near her house tells her partial story of her mother’s murder.
Her demons from past return to haunt her – train whistles, familiar roads, voices of her family.
Nice picturization but very loud music ruined the scene for me.
Amaan is talking to Aina through Sheru.
Farhana is all set to come back to Islamabad, thanks to an email from an unknown email id. Her father’s diaries, Nilofer’s letter and the email – all force her to take a stand.
Amaan leaves Aina alone, just so she could get her facts right. She calls Nargis Bua, tells her about the whole story and asks her for her connection with Darya Baug. Nargis Bua doesn’t tell her the truth. By the way, Hhh who plays Naushaba is younger than Aina but she calls her “beta”. I found it amusing.
The best performer of the episode is still Amaan. He remembers his parents last day and walks like a vulnerable heartbroken loner.
Next episode will show the last bit of the past and probably the showdown.
