She knees him in the groin and flees the house. Masood shouts that he’s got Kamil. Thanking God, Zainab’s about to go to him when Yusef grabs her. Finding the house empty, Masood and Jane fear they’re too late. Zainab invites Yusef to hit her, revealing Masood’s got Kamil. She berates Yusef, he’s a sick man. She lunges at him and he starts to cry, she’s right, he’ll go. Distraught, Afia runs to Tamwar and reveals it was Yusef who set Zainab on fire.
