In the previous episode, Adi tries to reason with his mother that getting him married so soon is unnecessary. However, Akhila is stubborn and simply states that her decision can’t be changed. This makes him realise that Akhila probably knows about him and Parvathy. Hence, he decides to break the truth about Mithra to her soon. Later, he meets Parvathy, who is toying with the platinum chain he gifted her. He takes it from her and ties it around her neck. With this, he admits that it was something he originally wanted to do but couldn’t because he had to present it to her in front of the family. Vanaja informs Nandini about how Adi didn’t fight back much over Akhila’s decision. This upsets her but she is convinced that their plan won’t fail.
Tonight, the episode opens with Sundaram returning back home. Adi helps him to his feet and asks Sundaram to continue with the exercises as taught in the hospital. Parvathy thanks Adi for sending the Japanese doctor who helped him recover. Sundaram then tells Adi that perhaps Vanaja already knows about their marriage. He fears that the news might reach Akhila, who will not take this betrayal lightly. However, Adi consoles him and tells him that he will take good care of Parvathy as she is his wife. Next day, Parvathy is at the temple, worshipping, when the platinum chain falls from her neck. She grabs it before it drops to the ground, but fears if this might be a bad omen.
Parvathy worries that the chain falling has something to do with losing Adi. While she sits on the steps of the temple, trying to figure out what this event might imply, an old man approaches her. He asks her for some fruits and then asks her what’s bothering her. She tells him about the chain and how it is like a thali for her. However, the old man tells her that she has nothing to fear as she will soon get to wear the thali without having to hide it.
Everybody in the family is gathered around the hall when Adi enters from outside. He doesn’t notice them and asks Parvathy to make some pudina tea for him. Soon he realises that Parvathy is not in the kitchen and tries to walk away. Vanaja stops him and taunts at how he brought this on himself. She then asks Mithra to make it for him but Adi’s angry gaze scares both of them. Akhila offers to make the tea for him instead.
As Adi waits in the hall for his tea, Parvathy arrives with a flask of pudina tea. Just then Akhila returns to the living room with a cup of pudina tea in her hand. Unfazed by the competition, Akhila goes to Adi with her cup of tea and stands between him and Parvathy. He chooses Akhila’s tea instead of Parvathy’s, which makes her very happy. Parvathy doesn’t feel bad and is walking away when he stops her. Adi then asks for the tea flask and states that since she got it for him, she shouldn’t take it back.
