-1:36:00 Ali makes Eylul a romantic dinner. “Don't you love me? Why can't I be a father?” Eylul embraces him.
-Sultan to Sinan: “Divide and conquer .... We'll use Zeynep to separate Ali and Eylul.”
-1:44:30 “Rose petals and a note from Oguz fall out of Ipek's locker: “I'm in the operating room.”
-Ipek gives Eylul her mother's suicide note: “I would give up my daughter if you would love me.” (I think that's what it said. Translation was terrible)
-Eylul overhears Ali talking to Selim with the implication that he would leave her if they couldn't have a child. (Again, translation was very bad. But Eylul was devastated at what she heard.)
-Sinan to Sultan in Sultan's father's office: “You're the psycho whose done all this....”
End: Ali goes home looking for Eylul and finds her closet cleaned out.
*Subtitles for this episode were particularly bad...
Opens with Sultan strangling Sinan, who's discovered Sultan is the psycho tormenting Ali.
-Sultan to Sinan: “Both our father's betrayed us. We're just trying to get what we deserve.”
-Eylul visits her maternal grandmother and reads the letter. (Much better translation)
-Ali tracks down Eylul: “Why didn't you tell me you went to your grandmothers. You can't just disappear!”
-41:40 Ali to Eylul in hospital lobby: “I will break down the walls between us.”
-57:00 Selim sees a woman in the lobby and is smitten.
-Sultan to Sinan: [Flashback] “I went to see my father once. He turned his back on me.”
-1:19:00; 1:21:12 Eylul to Ali looking at babies: “We have to break up.”
***It seems like right about here they decided to wrap up the series. The rest was very rushed.
-1:41:44 Ali to Eylul after a successful fetal surgery: “Let's make a baby.”
-1:54:12 After getting drunk and spending the night at Sultan's house, Ipek hugs Oguz and apologizes.
-Ali confronts Sultan: “It's terrible what my father did to you, but...” Sultan arrested.
End: Ali and Eylul hold a dinner party for the gang. They have a 1 year old daughter, and we see flashbacks to each character's wrap up story.
