Yesterday, after a massive fight with Rohan, Manveer is extremely upset so much so that he wants to leave the house. He refuses to go to the confession room even when he’s summoned. However, Mona Lisa tries to explain and cajole him saying that he is a tough player and persuades him to go to the confession room. Bigg Boss reassures him and he comes out happy. Meanwhile, Bigg boss gives the contestants another chance to reduce their points by introducing a task where two challengers have to drink the 'Karela' juice. The challenger who finishes the 'Karela' juice first wins the task. Lopa and Gaurav are elected from the respective teams to compete in the task and Lopa comes out winner but not without many heated arguments between Mona Lisa and Rohan, who are the captain of the task.
After a day of living without their essentials, the contestants wake up to ‘Phatela Jeb’ which resonates with their current condition. While they crave for their basic morning essentials including toothpaste and coffee, their tempers and patience levels continue to waver. Sitting with the opposing team, Om Swami points fingers at Mona’s character highlighting that even though she is engaged, her closeness to Manu and Manveer is questionable. Lopa, Rahul and Rohan stand up for her and tell Swami ji that he does not have the right or liberty to raise fingers on anyone’s character. Later, Manu and Mona are discussing the matter about their linkup and Manu says that their reality only they know, then perhaps Manveer and the show creatives, who know the truth about their relationship.
On noticing that Manveer is fast asleep, Bani commands him to do 20 push-ups as a part of his punishment. But, he refuses to comply. Gaurav attempts to defend Manveer but Bani asks him to stay away from the discussion. And, since Manveer is not relenting, Bani asks Mona to explain the situation and her ask of him. And while the contestants are battling each other, Om Swami adds more points to his team’s kitty. As the task continues, Nitibha and Bani get into an argument based on the rules of the task, and Om Swami interferes, further enraging everyone. And finally, the contestants’ problems come to an end as Bigg Boss declares the task to be complete, allowing access to their belonging once again. When Om Swawi goes into the wardrobe storage area, he is miffed to see that Manu and Manveer have taken his spot. But, thankfully, captain Bani is closeby and is able to avert a possible battle from erupting.
Later, Bani finds Om Swami sleeping and when she doles out punishment, he refuses to do it by saying that he was actually meditating. He further pushes her buttons saying that he will follow Manu and Manveer’s lead and not accept her punishments. As the contestants recoil from the after-effects of the task, Bani, Rahul, Rohan and Karan share a light moment with Gaurav where they joke about the special attention he gets from Lopamudra and Nitibha owing to his popularity.
As the day draws to a close, Bigg Boss congratulates the contestants for performing the ‘Lock down’ luxury budget task extremely well and announces captain Rohan as the winner in the task. “This difficult task was organised to let everyone understand how one has to adjust when they are deprived of basic necessities in life,” says Bigg Boss and further asks the contestants to nominate two contestants who contributed the least and deserved the punishment of not getting access to the luxury budget or the delicious meal being sent by Bigg Boss. After two days of living like nomads without their basic necessities, Om Swami and Nitibha’s suffering continues as they have been unanimously selected as the two contestants’ who were disappointing in the task.
Om Swami is clearly one of the major factors responsible for Mona Lisa’s team losing the task as he didn’t cooperate with his team. In fact, the opposition team member Rahul is heard telling Swami that he was the ‘Man of the Series’ for them as he helped them win the task by not participating. Manveer tells him in clear terms that he stops behaving during nominations, during the fulfilment of tasks and on weekends when the host Salman Khan makes an appearance. Mona, who is upset with him for making uncharitable and harsh remarks at her in the secret house, too, gives him a earful and wonders why he did that to her. “After everybody knowing what you spoke about me in the secret house, if I behave cordially with you, what will the audience think about me,” Mona questions Swami, who once again lies that he was told by Bigg Boss to say such things about her.
The episode ends on a happy note after the contestants have had the delicious food sent by Bigg Boss, and the three friends in the house – Manu, Mona and Manveer are seen dancing and rejoicing, and Manu requests the viewers to keep voting for Mona. Tomorrow will bring again new challenges with the captaincy tournament where Lopa will compete with Karan while Rahul will be pitted against Rohan, and looks like Bani and Lopa’s verbal spat will continue.
