Without H�lya's permission, Kaya sends an invitation letter to the woman. And the first scene ends. The second scene starts with the birthday party in the Club Layla. The selected guests are entering the club with an announcement in highly manners. The club is crowded with the guests, a band is accompanying to them with their cool music.

The last scene takes place in the house of Kosar's, everything is resolved for H�lya, she gets up from bed in peace but still curious about what happened last night after she left the house. She is planning to invite that woman to her home again. Kaya and H�lya have exchanged their attitudes towards the unknown woman. This time Kaya rejects her invitation and tries to deceive H�lya not to talk her again. And H�lya understands her fault against her and also wants to thank her for her help. While they are arguing whether they will invite her not, the unknown woman enters the room. She decides to live Istanbul again, the rush and the bad weather is not for her. She says that her objective to visit them is firstly bring the ring back and to bid farewell. But before leaving she demands a photograph of H�lya and her dear child. H�lya gives a photograph of her and shakes her hand before she left. After she leaves the house H�lya realises that her ring was stayed at her.
