What Was The Truth Behind Maran? Was He A Human?

“Shahmaran” Episode 4 opens in Sahsu’s room, where Maran spent the entire night dozing off on a chair. He was awakened by Sahsu, who asked him about last night. She nervously questioned why they didn’t come closer to one another, to which Maran retorted that he wasn’t drunk, but she was. And that’s why he kept his distance and behaved like a gentleman by not taking advantage of her. As Maran was ready to leave, he noticed snake tracks on the floor, which disturbed him.

Maran’s three sisters tried to persuade their father, Ural, to warn his son so that he could take precautions to protect Sahsu, but Ural explained that human minds become obsessed with certain beliefs, and no external force can alter their minds until they want it to. While one of the sisters, Bike, interrupted and stated that Maran was not human, Ural confirmed that he was half-human. So his mind worked in that manner. Maran’s elder sister, Hare, however, asked Maran to be more open to Sahsu because falling in love with him may be the best thing for Sahsu. Meanwhile, Sahsu attempted to improve her relationship with her grandfather.

They began remodeling Sahsu’s room, and as they were painting the walls, Sahsu disclosed she had been bitten by a snake when she was five years old, and ever since then, she has experienced hallucinations and sleepwalking. Their conversation revealed that Davut did care for his child and grandchild, but he refrained from rearing them due to some mysterious incident in his past that was yet to be revealed.

We see Sahsu go to Maran’s place and discover he has a passion for making fragrances. She put him through a test to see if he truly knew all the perfume compounds by heart. Maran passed the test, but when Sahsu asked what she was wearing, she smelled like Jude roses, the seeds of which she had given to her grandfather. She was perplexed as to how Maran could smell that. Maran took her to his garden, where they finally kissed, but soon discovered a giant snake staring at them. He excused himself for a moment and ran after the snake that had assumed human form, which turned out to be Mirac, Maran’s gardener. Maran restrained him and spoke to his father and his uncle Lakmu about him. They were discussing a prophecy of some sort that had not yet been revealed but on which Ural had relied. Lakmu, however, was impatient and thought that instead of waiting and hiding, they should begin eliminating these enemies. Maran couldn’t wait for any prophecy to come true since he was concerned about Sahsu. He questioned Mirac, who said that he was aware of Maran and his moral character. But he was also aware that he had never visited the basilisks’ quarters and had never desired to learn about their suffering. However, they wouldn’t have to worry and could coexist with humans because some dark power would emerge, and, as he indicated, it would have some relation to Sahsu. It seemed that Mirac came from a chaotic realm where a certain breed of basilisks was evil and voted for anarchy, while Maran, being half-human, desired to maintain harmony and balance in this realm. So it appeared that Mirac was portending an impending battle.

Sahsu had some butterflies in her stomach after her encounter with Maran, but she discovered Cihan had come to visit her. Davut had also spotted him and believed him to be some sort of thief. So he raised a rifle to his face. Cihan, who was already in love with her and desired to own her, was jealous when he learned from Diba at school that Maran had spent the previous night with Sahsu. After Cihan’s encounter with Sahsu, when he was heading toward home, he revealed himself to be Lakmu’s child. Lakmu advised him against picking a fight that he couldn’t win. Meanwhile, Sahsu dozed off in her room and awoke in the forest. She found herself surrounded by snakes, and one of them bit her. We see the black cloaked guy, named Arun, had appeared in front of her unconscious body and it seemed like he was following someone’s order.  Sahsu could have been sleepwalking and ended up in the jungle, but Maran tracked her down. He rescued Sahsu and sucked the poison out of her wound with his fangs. Then he took her to his house, where his three sisters submerged her in the bathtub and treated her. Sahsu was unconscious the entire time, so when she awoke in the morning, she couldn’t remember anything. She confronted Maran, who claimed that his father had given her anti-venom and treated her. Although Maran had lied to her, Sahsu remembered being sunk into the water by Maran’s sisters. She came to the realization that Maran was keeping something from her that she really needed to know. Maran lied to her because he didn’t want to reveal their true selves to Sahsu just yet. However, Sahsu would eventually need to learn this before deciding to get into a relationship with Maran. Let’s look into the upcoming episodes of “Shahmaran” to see how she will learn about Maran’s reality.
