When Abaan finds out that Abeer is being interrogated, he becomes furious and rushes to the boy responsible for the rivalry.

A flashback scene from six months ago reveals that Khadija faced humiliation when she attended a parent-teacher meeting for Abaan. His low grades enraged Javed and he decided to send him away to boarding school for a year. Although Khadija protested against the decision, Javed managed to persuade her into thinking that it will turn out to be favorable for Abaan. Seeing his brother upset and disheartened, Azaan tried persuading his parents to come around but ended up getting a shut-up call. When Khadija informed Wajiha about Javed’s decision, the latter attempted to change Khadija’s mind, guiding her to be lenient with the kids but to no avail. On the contrary, Khadija instructed Wajiha to pay attention to her kids’ social media, or else they would get out of control. Abaan went on a hunger strike and Javed strictly forbade everyone from convincing Abaan to eat.

The flashback continues when Abaan felt so pressurized and overwhelmed that he attempted suicide by slitting his wrist. Azaan and Javed rushed him to the hospital where the latter lied to the doctor to avoid any sort of police case. Khadija lost her wits and strictly asked Javed to drop his decision of sending Abaan away to a hostel. Despite being lenient, Javed informed Abaan that he is not scared and will implement his decision. Azaan convinced his father to give Abaan one year to improve his grades. He promised to help Abaan study and guaranteed that he won’t regret his decision. Later, at school, he picked up a fight with one of his classmates who teased him about his sister’s love affair. Fardan blew off the steam and guided Azaan to talk to Abeer calmly to find out her side of the story. Azaan politely guided Abeer to pull herself out of the mess and focus on her studies.
