Episode Guide - Part 10
Pari agrees to spy for Aryan in exchange for his keeping quiet about her role in damaging Jassi’s PC. Raj and Arman close the deal with Lavina, buying lower quality fabrics and are told by the Lavina reps (Diana and Santanu ) that they can also buy other supplies from them. Santanu, who handles Gulmohur’s account, notices that Jassi has Arman’s complete confidence and asks her if she is the one that reviews the contracts before Arman signs them. Arman hatches a plan with Raj to be able to meet Mandira Vázquez and starts flirting with her. But, his reputation has preceded him and she knows who he is and that he’s engaged to Mallika. Santanu gives Jassi the samples for the other supplies and asks her to review them and tells her that they can also buy these from Lavina and that he will call her the next day to maybe get together for coffee. Jassi tells Arman that everything is ready for signing the contract and since he is flirting with Mandira, he gets upset with her and acts in his usual rude way. Jassi calls home to tell her parents that she is on her way and Balwant gives her the third degree because it’s so late. He asks if Arman is bringing her home and she says yes. After the contract is signed, Jassi wants to talk to Arman, to ask if he needs her to stay, but again he’s trying to woo Mandira and tells Jassi to just go. Mallika calls Arman on his cellular and asks him why he isn’t home yet. He decides to play it safe and goes home.
In his car, Arman is moaning about how he had to let Mandira get away, that Raj is right, that he can’t get involved with women from the fashion world, he needs to get involved with unknown women and starts asking himself where he could find such a woman… At that very moment he notices Jassi walking on the sidewalk down this dark and desolate street. He stops his car and asks her why she’s there by herself and she tells him that she was trying to catch a cab and thought that she’d have better luck if she walked down to a main road. He offers her a ride, which she doesn’t want to accept, but he insists and she agrees.
When they get to Jassi’s house, Arman tells her that he needs her help to be able to make things work. Balwant scolds Jassi for getting home so late. Mallika questions Arman about his latest conquest, and he answers that it is Jassi, and Mallika can’t help but laugh since she was asking him about “another woman” not Jassi. Oh, Marcelita, reality bites!! Jassi writes in her diary about Arman, that she is happy that he is confiding his innermost thoughts to her, that he stands up for her against everyone, and that he needs her because of work, but she needs him because she loves him.
The next day, Balwant tells Bebe and Jassi that he’s on the verge of unemployment because his company went bankrupt. This is of great concern to Jassi and she tells Balwant that she’s getting a raise at work and will be able to take over the expenses at home. She also remembers, to herself, about the Lavina guy’s comments. Nandu asks Jassi to help him find a job at Gulmohur. Santanu calls Jassi to ask her out to lunch. Pari complains to Mallika about her financial woes. Arman asks Raj to be attentive with Pari, to make sure that she doesn’t start spying for Aryan.
Jassi goes with Arman to all the banks to register her signature as an authorized Gulmohur signature, in addition to Arman and Raj. Jassi tells Arman that she has a person in mind for Gulati’s job, her friend who is an economist, and he tells her that he can’t decide just yet, to just give him his résumé and he’ll let her know later. The Gang ask Jassi about the previous night’s cocktail party, and they want to know if he noticed how nice she looked, but she tells them he paid no attention to her. Jassi tells them that she has other plans for lunch and can’t go with them. They ask her with whom, but Jassi says nothing. Arman tells Mallika and Maddy that he wants Mandira to model in the next launching, which makes Mallika jealous, since Arman mentioned that he’d seen her at the cocktail party the night before.
Pari sees when Santanu picks Jassi up to go to lunch. Arman tells Mallika that he, Raj, and Mallika will travel to the Hong Kong and that Jassi will be left in charge while they’re away. Maddy and Mallika are completely opposed to this idea. Santanu asks Jassi if anyone knows that she’s going out to lunch with him and she says no, but that she also wants to know why he is being so mysterious. He tells her that since she has so much influence with Arman, he needs her help to get him to buy the rest of the supplies from Lavina, and that if this happens she’ll get a commission of 5% amounting to Rs.30,00,000. She tells him that this is unethical, that she doesn’t agree, and that she’s not going to risk her job for it. Santanu tells her to think about it because he could give her a 10% discount on the sale. Jassi leaves the restaurant very preoccupied.
Berta and Sofia subject Jassi to an interrogation about her lunch date, and Jassi is still tight-lipped, and they ask her if she had lunch with Nandu, her platonic love, because they are eager to meet him. Sofia asks Jassi if they’ve given her a pay raise now that she’s assistant to the Chairman, and when Jassi says they haven’t, Sofia tells her to talk to Arman. Jassi says she wouldn’t dare. Bebe calls Jassi and tells her that her dad’s situation is pretty bad at work.
Arman, Raj, and Jassi are meeting to figure out the expenses for the new launching, and they’re cutting costs. They ask Jassi for copies of the supply samples and Jassi adds Lavina’s proposal to the pile, which takes Arman by surprise. She tells him that Santanu gave her the samples and offered them a 10% discount. Arman asks to cut corners even more, but his friend asks him not to do it because the cheaper materials are really low quality. But Arman only wants to lower costs so he can meet his goals and doesn’t listen to Raj’s advice. Jassi has to do an analysis of the proposed expenses and has to select the best provider. She mentions San Remo and Lavina and reminds them about Santanu’s offer of a discount, so Arman tells her to contact Lavina to negotiate the sale.
Aryan meets with Pari at her apartment, where she tells him that Arman went to all the banks with Jassi, and tells him that while Arman is out of town on business, Jassi is going to be at the helm of Gulmohur. And also tells him that she saw Jassi with Santanu, adding that this was very suspicious. Aryan tells Pari that he doesn’t care about Jassi’s whereabouts, he wants to know what Arman is up to. But Pari has planted the seed of doubt, so Aryan talks with Gulati to ask about who is well known for offering bribes and asks him to find out if Jassi is being paid under the table by Lavina. Aryan and Pari go to bed, after which he just leaves her and she feels used.
Jassi gets home and is very worried to find her dad drunk and sad, since he is definitely going to be laid off. Jassi tells Nandu about not being able to get him a job at Gulmohur and also to please not show up there because she told her friends that she was in love with him. He is surprised to hear this and asks her when this happened. Jassi tells him not to be an idiot, that she is not in love with him, she’s just using him as an excuse since her co-workers are either married or dating. And that he also can’t show up because she’s described him to them as tall, strong, a real Casanova, with money and power. Jassi tells Nandu about the bribe offer, which she says would be her salvation. She also tells him that Lavina is offering the best prices, that there’s nothing underhanded about their offer. Nandu advises her against taking the bribe. Raj offers to give Maria a ride home, but they end up at a hotel where they sleep together. Jassi confides in her diary that she could accept the bribe without feeling guilty because she knows her family needs the money, but she also feels that doing this would be to betray Arman, but on the other hand she needs to help her dad and it hurts her to see him suffer. So she has to decide between being loyal to her boss or helping her father. She decides to help her dad. She dreams with Arman and is about to kiss him when her mother wakes her from her dream.
Arman asks Jassi to get him in touch with Lavina so they can close the deal. Gulati visits Santanu and gets him to talk about the dealings with Gulmohur. Veeru gets upset when he finds out that Maria never made it home the night before and especially when he realizes that she spent the night with Raj Calderón. Arman asks Raj about why he is late getting to work and Raj tells him about his evening with the receptionist. And, he tells Arman that maybe he should go out with Jassi, but they both decide this isn’t even possible because Jassi is so ugly.
Raj, Arman, and Jassi meet with Lavina to close the deal, and Diana tells Arman that she’s pleased that they’ve decided to buy everything from them. He says that they should thank Jassi since she’s the one that included them in the group of bids. Jassi is obviously uncomfortable, but Santanu and Diana thank her for her help.
Arman is worried that the new line won’t be a success and he tells Raj that they need to establish a phantom company with which to do all their business dealings, and which could put a lien on them prior to the banks doing so. And, that since this would entail a complete take over of Gulmohur, they need to have someone running the company who is completely and absolutely loyal. Arman immediately thinks of Jassi. Santanu calls Jassi and tells her that the business deal will net her Rs.30 lakhs and that he needs to find out how he can get the money to her. She tells him that she’ll call him later. Gulati calls Santanu from Aryan’s office and tapes the conversation, during which Santanu tells him that thanks to Jassi the deal with Gulmohur came through and that he’s going to give Jassi a commission for her assistance.
Jassi goes to lunch with Gang and they are talking about how Maria has landed a rich boyfriend, and they say that it’s obvious that she will be the only one who will be able to climb out of poverty. Maria tells them that the only one will actually be Jassi, since she’s the one with the degrees, with the boss who thinks she walks on water. Sofía tells them that Jassi has a boss that won’t even give her a pay raise and that Jassi will never have that kind of money, to which Jassi responds… who knows what could happen? Jassi remembers her conversation with Santanu and starts to dream about what she would do if she had a lot of money (if I were a rich gal…).
Jassi is still at Office Cafe with Gang and is dreaming about what she’ll do with the money from the Lavina deal. We see her arriving at Gulmohur in a chauffeur (Veeru) driven Mercedes Benz. She is dressed in a Chanel-type outfit in black and white, with a ridiculous hat and huge Bette Davis-like sunglasses. She invites the Gang to lunch at the club and they all pile into the Mercedes like in some old movie where you could just fit tons of people into a car with no problem. They have lunch at the club, and are joined by Arman and Raj, who are fawning all over Jassi. After lunch, Arman and Jassi take a stroll through the club’s grounds, and in the distance we see the Gang and Raj actually FROLICKING, with Raj doing a cartwheel! Jassi introduces her parents and Nandu to Arman, telling Arman that Nandu and Balwant run a business that does the accounting for large corporations. Bebe is wearing a tennis outfit, while Nandu and Balwant are dressed to the nines in golf outfits. Arman tells Jassi that he’d like to take her out to dinner that evening, but as usual, she wakes up and realizes it’s all ONLY A DREAM! (especially the part when Mallika and Maddy are actually civil to her).
