The episode opens with Dadi’s stern warning against misbehavior, setting the tone for the tense atmosphere. Ruhi overhears Armaan and Abhira arguing and decides to intervene. However, Abhira remains defiant, refusing to participate in the “mu dikhai” ceremony.
Meanwhile, the ladies engage in gossip and speculation, while Manisha adds fuel to the fire with her sarcastic remarks. Rohit attempts to lighten the mood by suggesting a dance with Manisha and Kajal. Upstairs, Abhira attempts to wear a saree with the help of online tutorials, but a lack of expertise leads her to a creative solution – pairing jeans with the saree.
Abhira and Ruhi arrive downstairs, with Abhira’s unconventional outfit drawing both praise and criticism. Dadi remains unimpressed, but the ceremony proceeds with the ladies offering blessings and gifts. Abhira struggles with feelings of insecurity as a guest compares her beauty to Ruhi’s.
Armaan tries to comfort Abhira and assure her of his support, but their conversation is interrupted by Sanjay’s disrespectful remarks about Akshara. This incident sparks Abhira’s fiery spirit, and she decides to participate in the “ring finding” ritual.
Ruhi finds the ring first, earning Dadi’s praise and setting expectations for her to control her relationship with Rohit.

This gesture leads to playful teasing from the cousins and a moment of connection between Armaan and Abhira.
Dadi introduces the final ritual – a competition for the ladies to dress their husbands in traditional attire. Madhav and Vidya share a private conversation, while Rohit encourages Ruhi to think of him as a friend during the task. Armaan, aided by Abhira’s expertise with pagdis, finishes dressing first.
Abhira’s victory is met with surprise, as she also surpasses Dadi’s long-standing record. This unexpected outcome adds another layer of complexity to the dynamics between the characters.
The episode concludes with a foreshadowing precap, hinting at another embarrassing moment for Abhira and further conflict with Dadi.
