On Tamwar’s mehndi day, Zainab’s stressed by the arrival of Yusef’s sister- in-law, Shameem. Denise is embarrassed when Kim reveals to Shameem that she’s seeing Yusef, and implies that she wants to get married again. Masood tries to convince Zainab that Yusef is trying to replace him, but she scoffs, calling him a failure of a man with a pathetic life. Upset that Masood’s banned, Tamwar’s heart isn’t in the mehndi preparations. As the party processes around the square, Masood jealously watches Yusef with his arm around Tamwar. Later, Ian taunts Masood, if he’s a real man he should stop the wedding. At the mehndi, Tamwar’s frustrated to learn Zainab’s told everyone that Masood is in Pakistan. Zainab warns him, however he’s feeling he has to keep it inside. Yusef reminisces about his wedding to Zainab, professing that he fell in love with her that day. Zainab protests, but Yusef insists he won’t pretend anymore, he has feelings for Zainab; does she feel the same?
