Friday Update on The Promise Zee Telugu
August 24 Episode
Everyone gathers in front of the Kishan murti for Puja. Bani is looking a little worried and lost in her own thoughts. Jai comes from behind and looks at her lovingly and pats her reassuringly. Maasi then tells the two of them to rock the jhoola. Both Jai and Bani pray together while stealing glances at each other. Jai looks very very happy. At the same time they show Rano wheeling Pia to the outhouse with a nurse and settling her in. Rano tells the nurse to keep an eye on her and leaves.
At the puja Atharva is enthusiastically wagging his head and knocks over something on Bani. He apologises and she leaves to get it fixed. Ranveer comes upon Raashi and asks her if she’s spoken to her parents. She says that her father has told her that it nust be done legally and that she’s entitled to a hefty alimony, which amount she will decide. Only then will the divorce go through. But since the Walias are in a mess financially she doesn’t think this is the right time to make any demands. Ranveer sees red and says that he’s never done what other’s want and is not afraid of anything.Bani sees them arguing from a distance and wonders what the matter is. Ranveer is telling Raashi that he can see through her ploys to stay on. Just then Rano comes and requests Raashi to take some soup to Pia as she wants to do Pooja. Raashi agrees and Ranveer overhears this.
Ranveer comes back to the puja and his mind is thinking of all the times that Rano has pushed him away ending with the great slap. He’s looking very angry and Jigyasa notices that her son is burning in his own hell. She goes to see what Rano is doing.
In the kitchen both Rano and Raashi are dressed in orange sarees and Rano thanks Raashi for looking after Pia. She tells her she’ll quickly finish the puja and get back to the outhouse.Jigyasa lands up and starts off on how both women dress alike its difficult to understand whose the patni and who’s the woh. She tells Raashi that Rani is smarter than you because she won’t give up her husband like you did. Raashi and Rano both look upset and leave.
Ranveer goes to the outhouse and gives the nurse some money and tells her that he’ll keep an eye on Pia. He goes to the kitchen and opens the gas pipe and shuts the windows. He then returns to Pia and puts her in the wheelchair and takes her out of the room.
Bani and Jai are doing the pooja and Bani sees the nurse leave. She walks out towards the outhouse and Jai sees her go. On the way all the memories of Pia’s viciousness come back and Bani returns to the puja. Jigyasa meets her at the door and says that I may hate you but I also feel sorry for you because you are trapped in a dilemma. On the one hand Pia is your sister whom you promised your parents to protect and on the other she’s your souten, the person who left no stone unturned to harm you. Jigyasa relishes seeing Bani in a trap from which there is no escape and tells her that no matter what she’ll find it difficult to stay away from Pia. Jigyasa says that Bani needs to decide fast what to do because time won’t wait for her.
Raashi is in the outhouse kitchen beginning to make soup, and Ranveer is watching from outside. The matches refuse to light. Just then Rano arrives and tells Raashi that she’s finished praying. Ranveer is horrified and the lights go out. Ranveer sees an orange sari clad woman come out of the kitchen and when he sees her slippers he’s relieved coz he recognizes Rano’s slippers. In a mini flashback, Ranveer earlier in the evening helps Rano up from a fall on the stairs that’s why he recognizes her slippers. He heaves a sigh of relief and leaves and the outhouse explodes behind him. He aplogises to Raashi in his mind but says that he wants her out of his life at all costs.
