Sumit, Jenny, and Sumit’s parents sat down with the family astrologer who is revered and trusted to give guidance. He scolded Sumit’s parent’s for trying to interfere with Jenny and Sumit’s relationship and told Sumit’s mom to practice acceptance.

Sumit’s mom tearfully listened and ended up accepting the advice of the astrologer because she and her husband sat down with Jenny and explained that they had a change of heart. They told Jenny that they love her and that they will be more open to the relationship going forward.

Sadhna did voice that she does not approve of Jenny and Sumit marrying and shared privately that she hopes Sumit won’t go through with it. When Jenny brought up getting married right away later on to Sumit, he expressed his hesitation and said that they need to see the astrologer on their own first.

Ariela flew to Kenya with her mom with a three-month lease on an apartment in the hopes that she and Biniyam could repair their relationship after all their troubles being apart because of Avi’s surgery.

While Ariela’s mom watched Avi, Biniyam and Ariela met with a translator to have a serious talk about their problems.

Ariela confronted Biniyam about having people over at their house in Ethiopia while she was in America and Biniyam said that Ariela was overreacting and misunderstanding the situation while she was away.

Biniyam said that he wants to keep his family together but that he would not admit to any wrongdoing while Ariela was in America. Ariela then slammed him for not thinking he did anything wrong and said that if he didn’t admit to any fault that she and Avi would be out of his life and they would work out a custody arrangement.

Alina played with cats and explained that she really wanted to go back to Russia but that she and Steven still had a lot of work to do with their visas including getting married with only one month left to stay in Turkey legally.

Steven told Alina he was ready to get married but admitted privately that he would not have chosen to move this fast if it wasn’t for the visa circumstances. He expressed to Alina his worry that she will end up not getting baptized into the Mormon religion once they get married since they can’t do it before due to the churches not performing baptisms because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Alina was offended by Steven’s assertion and said she just wants to go through with everything so she can be back in Russia with Steven.
