Palak complains to Gayatri that Yash did not reach on time to pick them up from the school. Gayatri gets furious when she learns that Palak and Payal had to wait alone for a long time for Yash after the school.
Maya instigates Gayatri against Aarti. She alleges that Yash must have got late due to Aarti as she always wants Yash to be with her.
Gayatri confronts Aarti for reaching late to the school. Yash intervenes and supports Aarti. He tells Gayatri that he got late in a meeting and so could not reach school on time.

Later, Maya mocks Aarti for trying her best to prove that she had changed her behavior. Maya also states that Aarti would never gain respect from Payal and Palak as she was their stepmother.

After Yash leaves, Aarti states that she does not have any past and that she only wanted to give her present the best and live happily with Yash and his family.
