Yeh Hai Mohabbatein starts with Romi (Aly Goni) worrying about Raman (Karan Patel). When Raman comes, Simmi (Shireen Mirza) asks him about Ruhi. He cries. Mrs Bhalla also enquires about Ruhi. Angry, Raman screams that Ishita’s interference spoilt his plans. Romi worries that everyone will come to know of their plans now. Raman says that women think we men are stupid and are always doing the wrong things. He tells Mr Bhalla that he always supports Ishita. Mr Bhalla says he will ask Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi). Raman says that everyone thinks he is a loser and always listens to what Ishita says. His parents wonder why he is so angry. Romi (Aly Goni) tries to take him away but he pushes him. Mihika (Avantika Hundal) and Pihu (Ruhanika Dhawan) look on. Mr Bhalla scolds Raman, who says that Ishita is permitted to do anything in this house. Mr Bhalla defends her saying that she is always right and knows how to keep a family united. He says you are not a good son and do not deserve your parents’ and siblings love and respect. Raman yells at him for being partial towards Ishita. He leaves the room. Mr Bhalla calls him an idiot. Pihu sees this fight and starts crying. Mihika and Simmi console her and send her off to play with Ananya.
Romi says he will talk to Raman but Mr Bhalla stops him. Mrs Bhalla says we should be more patient with Raman. She says something major must have happened for him to lose his cool so badly. Mr Bhalla says he is right. Abhishek (Vivek Dahiya) goes to Suhail’s (Gaurav Wadhwa) house to search for Nidhi (Pavitra Punia). He says she is in jail. Abhishek tells him that she has run away and he is shocked. He says to inform him or else the law will punish Suhail. He leaves with his police team. Romi comes home and Adi asks about IshRa’s whereabouts. He says I am trying to find Raman and Ishita. Mr Bhalla tells him not to look for Raman. The guard gets a drunken Raman home. Mihika tells them that Ishita messaged and said that she is with Shagun and they are trying to get Ruhi from the remand home. She says Ishita will return after finishing the work. Mr Bhalla says she does the constructive work while Raman is always a drunk loser.
In his room, Raman imagines seeing Ruhi and falls down. He remembers her saying that Papa will you always protect me. He promises. He opens his arms for her. Ruhi says you did not protect me. He visualizes her disappearing. The dream breaks and he hugs her picture and cries. Mrs Bhalla sees him on the floor and wakes him up. He says Ruhi has left us. She says no we will get her back. They cry and hug each other. Suhail wonders where exactly is Nidhi. He gets shocked seeing Nidhi at home. He sees her tied. Ishita says we tied her and got her here. She says now her jail term will be doubled and you will also get arrested. He says it is not true, you got her here; the cops checked my house right now. Shagun says the cops will come back and think you made her run away from the jail. After all, a brother will help his sister. Ishita says you have the motive. She tells him to write that he killed the blackmailer and Ruhi is innocent.
Simmi and Mrs Bhalla are discussing Raman when Param walks in. Simmi gets upset and asks him why did he come there? He says he has work with Raman. She says you are a liar, he hates you. Romi signals him to be quiet. Param says I came for some other reason. He narrates the entire incident of how he got permission for Raman to enter the remand home and a prisoner escaped. He says that they made a plan for Ruhi for someone else ran away. The minister is upset and Raman might be questioned. Param says he came to alert him. Mr Bhalla says look what he did?
Suhail says the police know that I went to see Nidhi in jail. He says you can call the cops. Ishita and Shagun say we know you two are smart, so we have plan B in place. Ishita shows a time bomb fixed to Nidhi’s stomach. Shagun (Anita Hassanandani) says you have ten minutes to write confession letter or else she will be dead. Nidhi signs Suhail to draft the letter.
