Earlier in episode 4 of “Shahmaran,” we saw that Sahsu had been bitten by a snake, causing her to fall unconscious immediately. Before Arun could kill her or take her to his realm, Maran saved her and brought her to his residence. When Sahsu awoke, Maran assured her that his father had healed her, although she could clearly remember being submerged in water by Maran’s three sisters. Let’s see if Sahsu can uncover her own truth and comprehend how crucial she is to the world of basilisks.

What Happened To Maran’s Body?

“Shahmaran” Episode 5 begins with Mirac telling Maran that he believes humans are cruel because they are capable of inhumanly capturing and torturing animals. However, Mirac claimed that basilisks were not cruel, to which Maran replied by warning him that if basilisks sought retribution against humans and attempted to wipe them out, this would be just as cruel as they believed humans to be. The basilisks wanted Sahsu to bring a chaotic queen to their race. However, Maran would do everything in his power to keep Sahsu safe from them. Sahsu, who had doubts about Maran’s entire family, visited their home with a cake in an effort to strike up a conversation. She asked Ural if she needed to go to the hospital, but Ural told her she didn’t. However, since she might have clearly remembered being submerged in water, she inquired about the ritual, causing the sisters to realize that she had remembered everything. She sneakily inspected Bike’s paintings, which were mostly about snakes and Shahmaran’s mythical stories. She left their home and went to her class to give her lecture. Her presentation was about Shahmaran’s fabled story, which Cihan discovered and informed Diba about.

Meanwhile, Maran discovered that his skin had begun to turn into scales, which he couldn’t hide from Sahsu for more than a day. Maran reached her school, where he found Cihan, who gave her his number. Maran found Sahsu and asked her if she wanted to come to his place. Sahsu agreed and Maran drove her to a cottage that was located distant from his home. Over a cup of tea there, Maran opened up to Sahsu about his personal life. Maran went on to claim that since he was the only male child in their family, he was considered to be the most valuable one. He talked about some beliefs that his family held and the death of his mother, which had happened to preserve them. After his mother passed away, Maran’s father, Ural, remarried, but his new wife moved out and left him with their two children, Diba and Bike.

Bike and Diba were fiercely protective of their brother, Maran, despite being stepsisters. He, therefore, considered that he had a responsibility to remain and defend his family. Sahsu, however, had a very different story to tell because her family had always abandoned her. Her mother had been left behind by both her husband and her father, Davut. She was a lonely woman who had never experienced a perfect family. And now that she had died, her daughter Sahsu was left alone in this world. Maran was eager to deepen his connection with her because their lives were like jigsaw puzzle pieces that could fit together. However, as soon as he kissed her, he noticed that the scales were beginning to cover his flesh. When he excused himself, he discovered that he had scales covering his entire abdomen. Perhaps the poison he drained from Sahsu’s body was to blame for this. He wasted no time in dialing Cihan’s number. He signaled to Cihan that he needed his assistance, and when Cihan sped over to help, he discovered Arun hiding in the shadows near Maran’s cottage. Maran hurriedly escorted Sahsu outside before heading in the direction of Davut’s residence. On the way, Maran asked Sahsu whether she would accompany him if he wanted to drop everything and start a new life with her. Being startled by the question, Sahsu told Maran that she wanted some time to consider it. Maran didn’t press for an immediate response from her. After leaving her at Davut’s home, he went on his own.

As we watch, Cihan tries to stop Arun from ruining Maran’s life, but Arun tricks him into believing that he should not be the chosen one. In order for Cihan to bring Sahsu to the entity for whom Arun worked, he entered Cihan’s mind and took control of it. Maran weakened, and his scales began to protrude from his skin. He was carried by his sisters as they led him into their private chamber, where they undressed him and began his treatment. Maran seemed to be capable of changing into a basilisk and becoming his true self. What would happen to Sahsu, though, if it were to occur? Would she be able to take the truth from Maran? Let’s find the answer in the upcoming episodes.
