Mohini uses all tricks to oust Prerna from Basu house but fails. Prerna declares that she isn't here without any preparations and now she would leave her sasural only on arthi (when she dies). She then says since she's tired of all the drama, she's going to rest in her husband's room leaving everyone shocked. Inside the room, Prerna sees Anurag's photograph and tells him that she has resolved to give him as much pain as he gave to her. Downstairs Komolika confronts Mohini and asks her if she's going to do anything to stop Prerna or not. Anurag decides to use this opportunity to convince Komolika that he's on her side and declares that he committed a mistake by marrying Prerna. Prerna in the meanwhile burns Anurag's handkerchief that he had once used to wipe her tears saying his love is fake. She says she made a mistake by narrating the story of thorn bird to him as he doesn't understand what true love is all about while Anurag in another part of the house feels he's that thorn bird who's set to destroy himself for love. Komolika comes to Anurag's room to collect her belongings and Prerna teases her if she could ask Anurag to come to the room and also asks for a glass of juice. Komolika is left sulking.
