Dastak Mere Dil Pe | Season 1 | Episode 22

Before We Begin 

I have been meaning to watch Sen Çal Kapımı for almost a year. The problem is, I found a website which had listed all key events and the detailed article spoiled it for me. I mean, this drama goes through some pretty bizarre twists and turns. Besides, this drama has two seasons. It is never a good idea. I watched Emergency Pyar, and they could not maintain the contniuity of the two seasons.  All I’m saying is, I have my apprehensions about this dizi.

But then, last week, I saw a few Urdu dubbed episodes of the drama, and I thought–why not?

Alright, with the basics established, let get to the episode.

Dastak Mere Dil Pe Episode 22 Written Review & Update


So, after an emotional night of remembering his brother, Serkan plays guitar for Eda. Later, they embrace, and then Serkan drops Eda home. He asks Eda to keep this to herself, and she promises that nobody will ever findout. Touched by Eda’s sensitivity, Serkan gifts Eda a guitar pick, and Eda is so thrilled as if she’s been gifted the world. Just look at her face. 


The way Serkan looks at Eda and Eda looks at Serkan, it tells us that they are falling in love, but neither of them know it yet. Despite her denial of being in love, Eda packs a gift for Serkan for his birthday.

Seyfi wishes Serkan the night before, and so does Eydem. The mother-son talk while Ertikan listens to their conversation. Eydem and Ertikan clearly have some unresolved issues, and we know whatever Eydem is saying will hurt Ertikan. And, it does. The next day, he goes to work in casual wear just to irritate Eydem. This is when Eydem wants to tell Ertikan that she had overcome her fear and stepped out of her estate. It broke my heart. At the same time, I could not help but admire how well each character is crafted.

The next day, Serkan’s office’s adjacent building has some repair work going on, and Engin suggests that they work at Serkan’s house instead. The team (Engin, Piril, Leyla and that goofy guy who likes Fifi-I forget his name) arrive at Serkan’s house. Eda wants to celebrate Serkan’s birthday, but she also wants to maintain a distance. Serkan has won a big contract from an international firm, and the team is singing praises for Serkan and Selin. Even Serkan admits of his strong feelings for Selin.
“Ferit and Eda are temporary, Selin and I are forever,” Serkan says.
The look on Eda’s face broke my heart.

Needless to say, Eda doesn’t like Serkan’s attention to Selin, but she takes everything in stride and even agrees to send flowers to Selin with a love note.

On work front, Eda takes on some “patent” work, which she has no clue about, that’s the first mistake. And, the file she gets has some original documents, that’s the second mistake. It’s a huge responsibility. By the way, nobody knows what Fifi does. She looks and acts like a bully with a shitload of contacts and she can get any and all work done within minutes. I like her character. Also, she helps Eda with the patent thingy.

The episode ends as Fifi leaves Eda with the file containing original documents, that the foreshadowing that something will go wrong with respect to this file. Hint: Kaan might steal the information and the whole blame will come to Eda.

And now we wait for my predication to become true.

This episode was not sad, but just a precursor of what’s to come. And I must admit, I loved all the foreshadowing.
