In his room, Oleg is shuffling and arranging pictures of the Panin family and tells himself that it is time they know each other well.
At the hospital, Igor tells Polina that Galina told him she had left the inhaler by Mr. Panin’s bedside. He asks Polina how can the inhaler vanish from Mr. Panin’s room and that she surely must have hidden it. Tired of his accusations, Polina tells him that she spends most of her time outside because she is fed up of all of them. She tells him that she has been tending to his father for a long time and that she also needs a break. She adds that he doesn’t like her because he didn’t want his father to marry her and that he hates his mother for abandoning them. He hides stuff from his girlfriend Nadya only because he is unable to trust women. She tells him that she pities him as he may never be able to find love.

The competitor, Maxim and his assistant approach Rita under her office building and tell her that one of her employees had promised to share the secret formula to their upcoming product with them. She is shocked to hear that and invites them to her office to sort things out. In the office, Rita tells Maxim that Nadya has no access to their secret files and there is no way she could have leaked any information. Just then, Maria confesses to having shared the password with Nadya. Rita sees the proof the two men have brought with them asks Nadya to leave the office right away.

Zora meets Ira and asks her to hand him some documents as Igor wants to see it in the hospital. He tells her that Igor will be working from there as his father has been admitted to a hospital.

She tells him to go meet the police while she will take the important documents to Igor.
Nadya contacts Pan cosmetics’ investigative department and asks them to investigate her case of trying to sell confidential information. She requests them to check the fingerprints on her keyboard to see if anybody else accessed her PC. Igor calls Nadya to the hospital to meet his father who had been asking to meet her.
Rita is shocked to know that Nadya is Igor’s girlfriend. Rita tells Igor that Nadya tried to sell their company’s information to their competitor and drags Nadya to make her leave the hospital room. Mr. Panin feels worried listening to all the commotion about his company and inquires about the same when Rita assures him of being in control of the situation. Nadya tries to convince Rita of her innocence but Rita doesn’t believe anything she says. Rita tells Nadya that she won’t file a police complaint against her provided she leaves Igor that day itself.
Igor has called Mr. Panin’s lawyer to the hospital. He asks him to not only investigate his father’s case but also help him prove his girlfriend, Nadya’s innocence. Galina is called to the hospital where she clearly states that she had left Mr. Panin’s inhaler right beside his bed and remembers checking it before leaving the house. Igor fiercely accuses Polina of shifting the inhaler from its place in order to have Mr. Panin dead. Polina expresses disappointment in Igor’s attitude towards her and walks off.
Oleg is outside the room and has heard everything. He feels bad that Polina has been silently putting up with such bad behaviour towards her for so many years. He is infuriated at Igor for being so rude to Polina. She tells him that is just a matter of few days and that she will ensure that Igor’s life becomes worse than hell.
Rita leaves to take care of things at work while Ira stays back with Igor. She meets Zora who tells her that he has seen the CCTV footage and he is surprised to know that it was Ira who smashed Igor’s car’s windshield. She tells him to not divulge anything to Igor as they have been friends since childhood and that they have certain secrets between them. She discourages him further by saying that his father is in critical condition and that it isn’t the right time to tell him such a thing.
Ira tries to comfort a stressed Igor. She tells him that he was always there when she needed him and now that he needs her she doesn’t know what to do to make him feel better. Igor sits closer and tells her that she is a very kind and nice girl and thanks her for being there. She tells him that he had once gifted her a music CD and that she listens to its songs whenever she is upset. She offers him a headphone and they both listen to music.
