Why Did Maran Hide Himself From Sahsu?

“Shahmaran” Episode 6 takes place on a farm where the milk lady from Episode 2 discovers that the cattle are dying because of some epidemic. Even though the disease was to blame, Ural believed it to be one of the prophesied evil omens. In the meantime, Sahsu learned that her grandfather had begun to forget things. At times, he was no longer even capable of recognizing Sahsu. Sahsu was a guest lecturer at the school, and soon she would be out of here, so it was her responsibility to focus on her lectures for the semester, but whenever she wanted to work on that, Cihan started approaching her. She tried to ignore him, but Cihan began nagging her. She unwillingly boarded his bike, and he drove her to a location where basilisks lived. However, when they got to a cafe, Sahsu told Cihan the story of Shahmaran. When she studied her students’ homework, she saw that it told the tale of a human named Camsap who betrayed the snake queen Shahmaran. However, according to Cihan, it appeared that Shahmaran was also a traitor who betrayed the serpents by falling in love with a human.

Cihan’s theory confused her, but in the meantime, she found all the locals of that area immediately ogled Sahsu. She asked for a cup of coffee, but the server didn’t even acknowledge her request. All the basilisk inhabitants assembled to attack Sahsu, a human who had wandered into their territory, but Cihan rescued her by taking her away from the place. He drove her home and attempted to give her a hug, but Sahsu didn’t think it was a cordial one. She pleaded with him to go. Cihan’s envy was slowly turning him into an evil basilisk, and he was plotting something awful to harm Maran that he wouldn’t be able to recover from. Sahsu tried to contact Maran, but he texted her that he was out of town for a few days. It was his sister, Diba, who texted her instead of Maran.

Sahsu was suspicious of Maran’s absence and went to his house to inquire about his whereabouts, where she discovered his phone buzzing in his study. She became even more suspicious and wanted to confront him, but Maran was a snake, and, like all the regular snakes, he was on shedding period. Therefore, he concealed himself in his house to avoid any contact with Sahsu. Sahsu was adamant, nevertheless, that she would track him down. She went to his home to ask his sisters, who subtly questioned her about her feelings for Maran. When Sahsu returned home, she was surprised to hear her grandfather discussing his daughter for the first time. The water taps would be turned off in a matter of days because an infection was killing animals. This brought back Davut’s memories of the day he left his home. The water would be turned off at midnight that night, and he would leave his young daughter at home. The account of the tragedy broke Sahsu’s heart, and she decided to follow Maran wherever he led her. She contacted Maran to let him know she would accompany him, but she didn’t receive a response. Maran was still shedding his skin while she waited for him.

The following day, when she arrived at school, Cihan secretly took her phone and gained access to all the recordings she had sent to Maran. When Cihan showed up on the night Sahsu bathed in the lake, he urged her to accompany him so he could end her pain. She agreed to follow him, but as soon as she boarded his vehicle, she encountered a very different Cihan, one who was filled with rage and hatred. He was bringing her to Anavarza so that he might give her to Arun or the evil entity. Sahsu was alarmed by Cihan’s erratic behavior and reckless driving. On the way, she discovered Maran was waiting to stop Cihan. Maran halted their vehicle and forced Cihan to get out. They started fighting out in the woods, out of Sahsu’s sight. Maran attacked Cihan and pulled out his fangs, causing him to bleed heavily.

Ural and his daughters called Lakmu to their meeting in Maran’s home. Ural had contacted him to warn him about his son when he arrived. We found the milk-selling deaf woman, who wasn’t actually deaf, was present in that meeting. It was unclear why she pretended to be deaf to the entire village, but it was obvious that she was a crucial individual who would be needed to protect humanity from the vile basilisks. Sahsu was scared and confused because she couldn’t find Maran anywhere. The implication from “Shahmaran” episode 6 seemed to be that Sahsu would soon learn about Maran’s true identity. If she learned her lover was a basilisk, how would she react? Let’s take a look at the next episodes to find out.
