‘Shahmaran’ Episode 3: Recap And Ending, Explained: Did Sahsu Confront The Black-Cloaked Guy?

Earlier in episode 2 of “Shahmaran,” we observed people begin to leap into wells close to Anavarza Castle, which seemed to Ural, Maran’s father, to be a bad omen. Wherever Sahsu walked, a black-cloaked man was seen following her. Maran attempted to persuade Sahsu to return to Istanbul, but Sahsu wasn’t receptive since she wanted to hear from her grandfather about why he had abandoned his child. She began to appreciate both Maran’s presence in her life and the environment of this village in Adana. Let’s see if Maran and Sahsu can develop a relationship.

Did Sahsu Confront The Black-Cloaked Guy?

The third episode of “Shahmaran” opens with Sahsu dreaming about Maran. She grinned when she realized that she had started to feel something for Maran. To start over, she went to the lake and jumped into the water. Davut, meanwhile, discovered from the footprints left on Sahsu’s floor that someone had entered her room last night. He installed a lock on Sahsu’s door because he thought it was Maran who entered Sahsu’s room whenever in the middle of the night. Sahsu found her grandfather’s behavior kind of odd because her grandfather hadn’t even known she existed before she arrived, and now suddenly, he had become so protective. When she arrived at school, Cihan started to ask her out on dates and offered her a ride on his bike. As Sahsu accepted, Cihan took her on a lunch date to a nearby kebab shop. Maran saw the two of them enjoying each other’s company and was envious.

She gave a significant lecture the very following day in which she discussed how human beings fight to discover their actual selves. As her presentation progressed, she found the same black-cloaked guy on the school grounds. She ran in his direction quickly so she could catch him and find out why he was following her. When Cihan noticed Sahsu running outside the classroom, he, too, followed her. Diba, Maran’s sister, who was also present in the class, followed her to protect Sahsu. Sahsu pursued the man and discovered him entering a classroom. When she followed him into the classroom, she was startled to find a huge basilisk hissing at her. She panicked in fear, and Cihan and Diba intervened to save her from the snake. Diba attempted to reassure her, but Cihan interrupted her by stating that Sahsu belonged to him in the school grounds. As Cihan confronted Diba, his eyes changed to resemble those of a snake, confirming that Cihan was also of the half-human, half-basilisk breed. He appeared to be a rival of Maran, as he, too, had desires for Sahsu.

After the tragedy, Sahsu suffered severe trauma and struggled to keep her thoughts on the correct path. She then smoked a joint in order to relax. When Sahsu returned home, she saw her grandfather’s bedside locker filled with a collection of medicinal jars. She came to understand that her mental illness, sleepwalking, and hallucinations were genetic and were passed down to her by her grandfather. Davut also experienced sleepwalking, and the ligatures on his hands showed that he had bound himself with ropes to stop it. She greeted her grandfather with the entire stack of medications when he returned home in the evening. She approached her grandfather and claimed that when her mother was still alive, she’d started to believe that she was adopted and that her father didn’t love her because of it. She expressed that her mother could find peace now, knowing that she was Davut’s biological daughter and had inherited all of her father’s mental illness. When Sahsu gave her granddad a joint, he accepted it. She spoke while Davut was listening, and he didn’t even object to a word she said, but he also let her know that she didn’t know enough about his past to criticize him.

Meanwhile, Ural’s father had spoken to an elderly man about their hybrid snake and human race and how only Maran could save them from getting extinct. To save their race and awaken Shahmaran once again, Sahsu and Maran would have to be together. While the elderly man was conversing with him, we saw a giant snake symbol drawn on the ground.

Even though Sahsu was already drunk from enough alcohol, she couldn’t help but keep drinking. She walked to the balcony that night to smoke. In the meantime, Diba was getting antsy to show Maran and Ural the video of the man in the black cloak, which she found from footage of the School’s CCTV. Ural, however, reassured her that Maran would handle everything. She observed Maran visiting Sahsu at night when she was excessively drunk. Maran put her to bed and watched over her the entire night to prevent anyone from harming her. His three sisters started to believe that Maran and Sahsu were already getting close. But did they actually get closer to one another, or did Maran still need to learn more about Sahsu before he could truly accept that she was his fate? See how that plays out in the upcoming episodes of “Shahmaran.”
