Yusef confronts Zainab over her infidelity, declaring that he won't let her ruin everything with one kiss. He then uses Kamil's absence to his advantage yet again, reminding Zainab that she has no choice but to agree to the move. Soon afterwards, Zainab tries to escape from the house, but Yusef catches his terrified wife and starts screaming at her. However, a horrified Afia is watching them and she rushes off to warn Tamwar of what's going on.
Tamwar and Syed eventually manage to get Yusef to give them the details of where Kamil is, so Masood then goes to get his son back. Later, Zainab makes another attempt to escape Yusef's clutches and she's delighted when she spots Masood with Kamil. Just as she is about to head over to them and it seems like everything's going to be alright, Yusef grabs Zainab from behind, pulls her back and warns that he will never let her go. What will Yusef's next move be?
