THAPKI ENGLISH WRITTEN UPDATE MAY 22 20234 min 53 sec
In the kitchen, Lovely curses the Pandeys for making her life miserable, saying she's never even tasted pumpkin before, making her question how she can cook it like Thapki, as Tina wants.
She believes that only Thapki can save her from this trap. Suddenly, a clever idea pops into her head, and she empties the pumpkin from inside.
As Dolly enters the lounge, Lovely times her with the hollow pumpkin and throws it over her head from upstairs, creating a distraction, that allows her to sneak out and meet with Thapki.
Everyone gathers around Dolly. Samar tries to drag the pumpkin out of her head while she cries. Vasundhara calls for a knife. When asked how the pumpkin got stuck on her head, Dolly says she was only passing by the hall when it fell over her, and she doesn't know where it came from.
Dolly resists as Samar tries to cut the pumpkin with a knife. Vasundhara shouts at her to stay silent and let them help. Samar finally removes the pumpkin, and Dolly is relieved.
They wonder where the pumpkin came from. In the warehouse, Lovely asks Thapki, who's tied to a chair, about her pumpkin recipe.
Thapki refuses, and asks what she would do otherwise – kįll her? Lovely says she would kįll someone else. Thapki hears Bani's cry and agrees to tell her about the recipe. It's morning, Tina and Dolly are in the kitchen.
Tina gives Dolly a glass of water and tells her not to worry about the pumpkin incident. Dolly explains that Samar probably never thought that the pumpkin would cause so much trouble... Tina looks around for Thapki.
Lovely comes, saying there was no masala at home, so she went to the market to buy it. She asks Tina why she's tensed, and Tina says it's just that she couldn't see her for a long time. Lovely cooks the pumpkin, which is Tina's favourite meal.
On tasting it, Tina says it has the same taste as Thapki's, and feels bad for suspecting Lovely. In the room, Samar massages Dolly's head.
Tina watches them at a distance and thinks Samar is so nice. She realizes that she still has feelings for him. Elsewhere, Lovely is speaking to someone on the phone in her regular rude tone.
Aryan comes from behind and asks who she was speaking to. Lovely changes her tone at once when she spots Aryan and says, "It was the contractor.
This time he went too far, he took Bani's name! And whenever someone takes my late daughter's name, I lose control over myself." Dolly watches Tina from upstairs. Tina recalls her romantic moments with Samar.
Munna comes and asks if she's missing her past memories, and she admits it. She tells him that her heart could never accept fate; it just wishes the old times would return.
Munna tries to console her. Dolly overhears their conversation and thinks the couple would only be Samar and Tina. Dolly, on her way to confirm who was talking to Tina, bumps into a woman with a pumpkin head. It turns out to be Suman, who scares her before explaining that she has just arrived and heard about the pumpkin incident.
Suman then asks when Dolly plans to return to her own house before going to do some chores. Dolly notices that the pumpkin is empty, just like the one that fell over her, and wonders if it was done deliberately.
Aryan brings a psychiatrist to treat Lovely, who, he claims, was traumatized after receiving the distressing morning call. Vasundhara and Panday also suggest that Lovely receive treatment and promise to support her throughout it the session.
Left with no choice, Lovely agrees. Dolly finds the pumpkin in the kitchen's dustbin and discovers a bead inside it. She suspects that someone threw it over her head intentionally and decides to use the bead to find her enemy.
She goes to the lounge and finds the lights turned off. During the therapy session, the doctor uses a pendulum and hypnotizes Lovely. He asks her what her name is and who Bihaan Panday is to her.
Aryan hopes that the doctor will discover the truth from Lovely. Lovely, who was already aware of Aryan's plot to expose her, recognizes Bihaan, as her husband, her family members and her daughters, Tina and Bani.
She tells them about her past, how she went away from her family after her daughters' births and lived away for seven years, how she later met her family in Bani's school and their reunion, how Bani went missing and lived away from her for 15 years... She cries, feeling helpless about Bani missing once again.
The doctor nods at Aryan, indicating that Lovely's answers are consistent with what they know. Aryan wonders if he was wrong and if Lovely is actually Thapki. The Pandeys exit the lounge and Lovely is left holding a stained pin in her hand.
She admits to using it to pinch herself so she wouldn't get hypnotized. She assures herself that no matter what Aryan does, he won't uncover her secret as her love and hate are unwavering.... On the balcony, Tina confronts Aryan and asks if he still suspects her mother.
Aryan responds that he doesn't since 'Thapki' recounted their shared history, including the schools they attended. Upon hearing this, Tina realizes that Thapki had mixed up the school names, leading her to suspect someone else is masquerading as Thapki.
