In 1963, the boys are driving with Ghosh into town and are made to pull over because the emperor's motorcade is coming through.
An old woman calls the emperor a thief and throws a shoe at his Rolls Royce; his guards beat her brutally.
Back at Missing, the dog Koochooloo has puppies, but Matron has ordered them to be killed because the hospital can't afford to keep them.
The boys get home and see that Gebrew and a taxi driver have devised a hideous plan to kill the pups by putting them in a bag and tying it to an exhaust pipe so that they'll suffocate. Koochooloo, their mother, goes nuts trying to save her babies.
The boys freak out, but Hema says that Koochooloo will forget the babies.
Shiva breaks his long silence to ask Hema if she would forget it someone killed Marion or him.
Now that Shiva speaks, he and Marion are no longer one unit; they're beginning to have their own identities.
