Recap: Mukti finally reveals about her relationship with Abhi in front of Fab 5. Dhruv and Cabir start fighting. Nandini breaks down and starts loosing hope when Manik supports her.
After a day full of heavy drama and emotions, the Fab 5 for the first time are quietly sitting alone and thinking about their moments spent together and the way they have been falling apart. For the very first time, they are not together. Cabir and Navya are sitting at Cabir’s place. Cabir is lying on the bed with his head in Navya’s lap. Navya is caressing his hair and forehead expecting him to fall asleep so that he would stop thinking about the fights. Cabir’s mom looks from the bedroom door and Navya looks up at her. She indicates to her that he had fallen asleep and that she need not worry about her son as she would always be there for him.
Dhruv was playing the guitar in a dark room, thinking about Nandini all the while. He had been attracted towards her since the time they had been together in school. While thinking about Nandini, the memory from the other night crossed his mind when Aliya had forcefully dragged him into a kiss. He got so annoyed at that memory not leaving his head, he got up from the floor and banged the guitar on a table which broke it into pieces. His mom came running to his room on hearing the noise but decided not to interfere as he was not in his senses at the moment. She decided to call Aliya and ask her the reason for Dhruv’s sudden anger.
Aliya was looking at the pictures the Fab 5 had clicked over the years from the school days to the college days. Every picture had a memory associated with it and as she was going through the pictures, her mind was getting flooded with thousands of sweet moments which kept getting smiles on her face. She then came across a picture of her and Dhruv. It was a picture from the day they had all gathered and decided to do something different than everyday. They had decided to swap instruments amongst each other and accordingly Aliya had taken up Dhruv’s guitar and Dhruv was on the Keyboard. She did not have a clue about the guitar and so Dhruv was teaching her how to play the guitar. Just to get the feel of a strict teacher for her, he had put on glasses and was pretending to be scolding her. The scolding definitely did not work out but the picture turned into a beautiful one with Aliya sitting on a chair holding his guitar and Dhruv clicking the selfie with the glasses on.

Looking at the picture, remembering the happy times spent with Dhruv and her family, the Fab 5, got tears to her eyes. Just then her phone rang and she picked it up to find it Dhruv’s mom calling. She got really nervous on talking to her after all the drama between her and Dhruv but still she picked up at the last ring.
Aliya: (nervously) Hello..
Dhruv’s mom: Hi Aliya dear. How are you ?
Aliya: I’m good aunty. How are you ?
Dhruv’s mom: I’m good too. Beta what’s the matter with Dhruv ? He seems to be very disturbed. I don’t know what’s wrong ! Is everything okay between all of you ? or is there something else ?
Aliya: Actually aunty, yes there are some problems but you don’t worry. We are going to sort it out real soon ! Just wait and watch, tomorrow you’ll find your old bubbly Dhruv back.
Dhruv’s mom: Oh dear ! You’ve given me relief ! I was so worried. Okay then take care. Good night dear.
Aliya: Good night aunty.
Mukti was sitting in the hospital, in the ICU on a chair beside Abhi, holding his hand in hers, tears forming in her eyes every now and then which she would immediately wipe away. She hears a soft voice call out to her, “Mukti !” and she turns around to find Aliya standing at the door. As soon as she looks at her she rushes to her and gives her a bone crushing hug. Aliya too gets tears in her eyes to see her friend in that state. She could not imagine her strong girl Mukti to be so weak. She takes a look at Abhi from over Mukti’s shoulder and it makes her more sad to see someone’s love dying out there. She gives Mukti a tighter hug and says, “I’m always with you Mukti ! You can count on me !”
Mukti breaks the hug and looks into her eyes. Aliya wipes Mukti’s tears with her hands and then drags her outside to sit and talk to her and make her feel better.
While all the others had been thinking about their friendship breaking down, Nandini was more concerned about the feeling she had while she was with Manik. It was a strange feeling she had never felt with anyone before. However, she found it to be a familiar feeling. She felt like it wasn’t the first time she had that feeling. She did not remember with whom, but she had definitely felt the same before.
She had a faint memory in her head of her falling off from a tree stem and landing into someone’s arms, which made both of them fall over and she was hiding her face in that person’s chest and crying. It seemed to be a memory from her childhood but was not really clear. She could not remember the whole incident neither did she remember who the person had been. For once she wondered if it was Manik but then realized it can’t be him as she had met him just before a few months and the memory was from her childhood.
While thinking about her childhood and trying to remember who that person might have been, her mind started wandering into the land of the most beautiful memories of her life that was with Fab 5. The way she had met each and every one and the times they had been with each other, good and bad. She did not realize but a lone tear escaped her eyes which made her realize how far they had been going from each other.
Manik was thinking about the two most beautiful incidents of his life so far. Although the incidents had been full of sadness, pain and tears, still they had been his best memories. One was when earlier that day in college, Nandini came close to him, and kept faith in him that she could break down in his arms and he supported her. The other one was a similar one from their childhood days when they had been playing in the garden at Manik’s place in New York and Nandini fell over while trying to climb up a tree. She fell over her monkey Manik and he held her, since both of them were too young, both of them tripped on the ground together and she had cried in his arms the same way as she did today. He was really worried about her on thinking about her face he saw last in college when she was crying. He wanted to be there for her and make things right but was helpless !
Precap: Manik going up to Nandini’s place at night to check on her if she was okay. Manan moments. Next day in college manik to make the Fab 5 sit together and talk out the problems to sort them out.
