Angry at her refusal to give him explanation, Sanskar teases her talking about that day, saying that she doesn’t know what really happened, asking her what she would do if roles has been inversed, instead of his brother, he was the one who goes missing? Or if he has been killed… if he was dead! Which makes her shout stopping him, but he continues saying that she’s afraid of being a widow. To her shocked expression he explains that she looks like a widow for the past months and that was killing him to see her like that.
When he says that he would be an open minded dead husband who accepts that someone like Niknil romance with his wife, she slaps him saying that deal was that he’ll punish her when he’ll bring his brother back , so he can insult her if he want but not bring Nikhil in that.
He assures her that he’s not insulting her, but himself and he knows that Nikhil is just a friend. Then explains that the deal have never been about punishment, but about their relationship recalling her her own words promising to not fill her maang with sindoor until her sister’s husband will be back, that they’ll not be any relation between them until Laksh come back.

*-*-*-*-*-*-*- Chapter 7-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Swara can’t understand her Sanskar’s changing mood, but relieved that he’s not angry at her anymore, she ignores the little voice warning her in her head that something is going wrong and just enjoys his embrace when he folds her in his arms dancing on the beautiful song named “Janam… Janam” singing to her its lyrics talking about never say goodbye.
Teasing her, he tells her that he finds her very brave to not fearing his madness and come to see him alone at this isolated place. She replies that she knows him, he just can’t do any harm to her as if anything happens to Swara, it’s Sanskar who will suffer bringing tears to his eyes.
On the last notes of the song, he tells her that he lived it before, when she fell in the river and everyone thought that she was… that he could bear to anything in the world but not what he felt then. Getting emotional again, she lets go of two heavy tears saying that she knows.
Suddenly, anger fills his eyes and senses again when pushes her away from him saying that if she knows that, then she knows him better that he thought knowing her.
At her surprise, he talks about what happened siw months back, about his fight with Laksh asking her why she never searched about reasons of his act.
In a flashback:
He remembers that he was trying to convince his brother to open his eyes and stop believing Adaarsh blindly, but Laksh’ tells him that he doesn’t believe him and all is his fault him and his smart wife.
When Sanskar asks him to not bring Swara in that, he replies that it’s all by her fault that Ragini disobeyed him after her suicide drama at Maheshwari door shocking him.
Laksh’ hits him then gets up and bring a big rock to thow on him, but Sanskar rolls on the ground at the last moment escaping him and stands up astonished.
Lucky doesn’t stop here, he adds that he would prefer that his father didn’t stop her, so she could be really dead by now making him go completely mad.
End of flashback.
Handling her arms forcefully, Sanskar tells her that his innocent little brother announced to him that she has committed a suicide attempt to prove his innocence just like that. He takes her hand to her head, pointing her fingers on her temple repeating the gesture and asks her to tell him clearly if she really did it? If she really pressed the trigger, if she’s really shoot herself… face to her silent cries, he shouts at her face to answer him. When agrees, he shouts louder to say it clearly making her for an instant feeling afraid of his anger, taken aback when to their bangel’s issue. He feels hurt that she could imagine that he can harm her.
She begs him to let her explain herself, but he refuses to listen recalling her that same demand she refused him six months back when she argued with him that he didn’t give a chance to his brother to explain himself.
Remembering his brother’s words, he assures her that if it was to happens again, he would do the same even today saying that it’s her power on him, the power of his love to her which makes her the person to be blamed for all that mess, for Laksh’s missing if the fight was his reason.
Roaming over his memories of the past months, stopping again on that awful thought that he could have lost Swara by her own choice, he takes a long sip from his wine’s bottle before standing in front of her asking her if it was so horrible to just accept his decision then about separation from Maheshwari family without breaking his kasam then her life would never been in danger and Laksh’ would never disappear. He wonders how she couldn’t understand that giving her life for his innocence was a punishment he doesn’t know why he deserves.
She tries to talk to him, to touch him, but he just doesn’t let her, so she says in defeat that he’s right, recalling him that she already promised that he could take her life as a punishment if he wants.
He laughs at her proposition accusing her mahan nature again but he’s shocked to see her falls on her knees at his feet passively. He sits face to her looking in her eyes and tells her that he has asked her first to not apologize.
She replies that she’s not asking for forgiveness but waiting for his punishment as she can’t bear seeing him destroy himself like that and if it was a bit of love in his heart for her, then she begs him to deliver her from this suffering.
Without a word, he pours his bottle’s contains in front of her before standing up and drawing a large circle around her with it. Then lighting up a match, he tells her how much she’s cruel to ask him punishing her by the same reason he’s punishing her for… at her refusal for the princess name he assures her that as long as he’ll be alive, she’ll be his princess.
Then setting fire in the alcohol liquid surrounding them, he declares that he’s fulfilling a last promise by punishing her before letting her in place and go to his car.
Before she can understand his words and acts, the car passes by her side at full speed and jumps in the void.
Shocked, she tried to hurry to the edge but flames wall stops her immediately, she searches for her phone trembling when she hears the metal crash coming from below. She murmurs his name about traversing the flames when an explosion irrupts from the void.
