His relationship together with his surrogate father is now on maintain as a result of [he] has left city. So, nobody’s guiding Tariq’s selections and he’s preserving every little thing to himself, similar to Ghost, proper? So, on account of doing these issues, there are penalties to his continued actions. Our present is ruled by rules of unusual and inevitable, so it’s inevitable that somebody is gonna die due to what Tariq is doing. It is just stunning that it’s Raina, and that is solely as a result of if Raina is the one who survives, then Tariq doesn’t pay the final word worth. It’s the loss of life of his sister that’s the final worth for that which he’s achieved. Now he has to reside with that. He has to reside with the truth that he precipitated his sister’s loss of life and that that’s gonna be that method for the remainder of his life. His twin’s gone, his twin sister is gone. So, for the individuals who have been anticipating it to be the opposite method, what I believe is like, that’s precisely what I’m doing right here. I’m imagined to shock you. I’m imagined to shock you. I’m imagined to make you go, “Why did that occur?” As a result of in actual life, that’s precisely what would occur.”
