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? As the dancing starts, Masood arrives and attempts to drag Tamwar away, insisting there won’t be a wedding today. Tamwar blurts out that he and Afia are already married.

Syed’s frustrated when Christian won’t wear traditional Muslim dress to the mehndi. Christian later reconsiders, and arrives dressed in a dupatta to support Syed.

Worried she’ll take something, Rainie calls Phil. Shirley’s annoyed when Phil leaves in the middle of their lunch, but lets him go to support his ‘buddy’. She’s later furious to discover Phil with Rainie in the Vic, and that Phil’s been lying to her.
