Yeh Hai Mohabbatein's March 12th episode: After the big turmoil over custody exchange, Ishita and others eagerly wait for Raman’s return. Raman and Bala come back and say that the lawyer cannot do anything due to the court holidays. Ishita refuses to talk with Raman and says she herself will find some solution.
Mihir meets Shagun and rebukes her for being so inhuman, but she pays no heed. Bandita contacts Mihika and suggests that perhaps Ashok can do something. She reminds Mihika that Ashok’s negative statement against Shagun was helpful for Raman during Ruhi’s custody case.
Mihika requests Ashok to help Raman and Ishita. Ashok refuses it outright saying he would never help his enemy. Mihika cries and begs for Ashok’s favour, but for no result. She comes to the Bhalla house to meet Ishita.
Mihika and Bandita see the Bhallas sitting at their drawing room. Ishita comes out from the bedroom and says that no one should show sympathy or be worried. She says that the situation is under control and she herself can protect Ruhi.
Everyone asks Ishita why she is leaving the house at an odd hour. She says that she is going to attend an emergency case. She actually knocks at Shagun’s door. Shagun gives a shrewd smile.
Ishita requests Shagun not to punish Ruhi to take revenge upon the Bhallas. Ruhi will also suffer like Adi due to the family problems, adds Ishita. She says that she forever respects Shagun as Ruhi’s actual mother. Ishita’s appeal cuts no ice; Shagun remains stubborn!
