The antics in Bigg Boss season 13 continue as reactions are mixed towards Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill’s renewed friendship. While some housemates are supportive, most see this as Shehnaaz’s game to get back into Salman Khan’s good books. This move creates friction between the “Strong 4,” the four friends that broke up long ago – Sidharth, Asim, Arti and Shehnaaz. With a new task for captaincy beginning, the housemates work hard to bring Vishal Aditya Singh to their side.
The episode begins and Shehnaaz Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill are seen spending time together and the housemates discuss their reconciliation. Shehnaaz sits with Vishal Aditya Singh and he subtly gives her advice regarding her relationship with Sidharth. Shehnaaz says that she wants to play for herself, indicating that this is a calculated move. While Arti Singh and Shefali Jariwala seem supportive of the patch up, the majority of the household is taken aback by their sudden way of making up. Many contestants, including Rashami Desai, Devoleena Bhattacharjee and their group believe that Shehnaaz is playing the game to get leverage by being in Sidharth’s team. Rashami and Devoleena advise Paras regarding Shehnaaz, telling him that Shehnaaz uses him as her support while playing with the other team. Devoleena tells him that Mahira gets upset about this, because Shehnaaz and Mahira do not get along.
Sidharth and group tease Arti Singh over Vishal and Vikas Phatak (Bhau) asks if Arti actually likes him. Arti does not answer, so the contestants continue to pull her leg and Shehnaaz says that Arti said she would marry Vishal if a connection was made. Vishal says “Let’s do it then” and Arti laughs. The housemates create a fake wedding with Arti and Vishal as bride and groom. On the other end, Devoleena, Rashami and Mahira discuss the antics. Devoleena and Arhaan tell Bhau that they’ve prepared breakfast and if anyone wants anything else, they are welcome to make it themselves. Sidharth Shukla and Asim Riaz reject Devoleena’s bhurji and says that they will not eat it, causing a fight. The two tell Paras that if they are cooking for the house, they should have chopped the vegetables for everyone. Shefali and Paras step in to intervene and Shefali, determined to rid herself of the “biased” tag she has earned as a captain, tries to handle the situation.
Devoleena and Shefali discuss cleanliness of the kitchen, but Sidharth says Arhaan leaves his glasses in the kitchen and begins pointing out unclean spots in the kitchen, irritating the kitchen team. Devoleena tells Sidharth that only he is clean and he is right, they should all just listen to him. As he continues, Rashami tells him to keep on doing it, to which he responds that Rashami should clean too. Rashami says that he can’t do anything without her. Sidharth and Khesari Lal Yadav fight when Sidharth objects to him speaking Bhojpuri. Sidharth continues to fight when Paras asks him if he has been eating eggs, trying to figure out why eggs are missing. Sidharth argues with Devoleena and Paras, saying that Asim gave him the eggs, so why should he report to them. Arti later tells Sidharth that she believes Devoleena is jealous of him.
Asim argues with Paras and Devoleena over the eggs, asking why they are questioning the amount. The discussion is calm, but Sidharth begins yelling and Arhaan gets irritated. Asim returns and tells Sidharth to stop listening to Arti and Shehnaaz, as they are not trustworthy and Asim has always been loyal. The kitchen team complains about the distribution of work, saying that Sidharth does not do anything and even asks for help while doing his one chore, chopping. While Shefali tries to defend Sidharth, Vishal asks her if she really believes the chores are evenly divided. Sidharth, Arti, Asim and Shehnaaz protest against Shefali trying to redistribute chores, but Shefali decides that she wants to be fair and gives everyone new chores.
Arti complains in the room with Sidharth, Sana and Asim, but Asim isn’t in the mood to listen. He tells her that he will tell Shefali if he has a problem and does not have to report to Arti about it as she is no longer the captain. While Sidharth tries to calm him down, Asim makes his anger known, saying that he and Sidharth spoke about how untrustworthy Shehnaaz is and yet Sidharth has started talking to her again. Arti shows her disapproval at Asim’s words, but he makes it clear that she and Shehnaaz are untrustworthy in his books. Bhau tells Asim that the other housemates are having fun at his expense, but Asim says that he doesn’t care. Shehnaaz and Sidharth try to calm Asim down, but Asim tells them that Arti said she was right about me. Arti comes to apologize to Asim.
A new task is announced, the “Demon” task where Arhaan, Vishal and Asim will be the demons in caves, while the rest of the contestants are villagers. The first demon to break out of his cage can break the plate of one of the contestants. The housemate that still has a plate at the end and the demon that has broken the most plates will become contenders for captaincy. Vishal is the target for both Sidharth’s team and Paras’s team, both wanting to sway him their way. Vishal speaks to both teams and while he tells Sidharth’s team that he wants Sidharth to be captain, he later tells Mahira that he’s playing for himself and wants to be captain himself.
With both teams trying to get Vishal on their side, the game has become interesting. It remains to be seen who will come out on top in the task.
