Cemil manages to jump over the window so that Ali Ihsan didn't see him with Iffet in her bedroom. When he reaches the gate, the watchman is waiting for him pointing a gun at his chest. Finally the watchman calls Iffet up and Cemil is released.

Cemil heard that Iffet, who couldn't drive a car, needs to hire a driver for her and taking advantage that he met Ali Ihsan at the pub he asks him to hire him as Iffet's driver. Ali Ihsan accepts the proposal without knowing that Cemil was Iffet's lover. She is amazed seeing him hired as her driver, but she doesn't say anything at the beginning. Ali Ihsan appoints his wife as a member in the company's board and transfers Dilek's shares and money to Iffet. Dilek becomes just a simple worker at the company.

During her first board meeting Iffet criticizes Dilek's new fashion line, so that Dilek gets angry and Iffet gets out of the office. Wanting to take revenge, Dilek speaks very impolite to Ahmet and Nimet when they meet at dinner table. As a consequence, Ali Ihsan tears out all the drawings Dilek had already made for the new fashion catalogue.

Cemil plays double: he still tries to make Nil fell in love with him while he buys presents for his mother, for Betul and her family from the money that Ali gave him, wanting to show to his family that he is financially secure. Then he tells them has a new job as a private driver for a very rich family - not mentioning who. He invites Betul to dine with him at a fancy restaurant and pays the debt he had to her with cash.

In the villa he is welcomed by Osman and by the other servants, but he doesn't feel happy to see Saime there. She scolds him for having the guts to come to that house and tells him directly that she doesn't trust him.

When Nimet comes home with more bags full of new clothes, Ahmet, who is a little drunk, tears them out and treats her violently. The second day Ahmet goes to Iffet's house and gives her the bags back. Iffet tries to make him understand that Nimet deserves a better life, but Ahmet doesn't seem to agree with her at first.

Omer's death is announced on tv news bulletin and Ali Ihsan, Erhan and Dilek learn about it. The first suspect is Ali Ihsan because he had previously threatened Omer that he would kill him. In the next moments two policemen ring at the door and arrest Ali Ihsan.

The episode ends when Iffet is taken home by Cemil, but he is driving on different road, trying to kidnap her.

I still have hope (Umut and Ozan) - introducing the series

Original title: Benim hala umudum var

Title Translation: I still have hope (pun - Umut, the main heroine, in Turkish means hope).

Broadcasted in Turkey by Star TV and Fox TV in 2013-2014

Episodes: 33 (?)


I still have hope (Umut and Ozan)
Umut (Gizem Karaka) is a young woman of 23 lives in a poor neighborhood of Istanbul with her mother, younger brother and stepfather, who has three other children. When she was 6 Umut lost her father and Zeliha, her mother, re-married Zafer, a taxi driver who was a widower. When he met Zeliha, he was living alone with his three children, Musa, 10 yo, and two twin girls, Yelda and Selda, seven. His desire was to remarry a woman who could be a good mother to his children.

After marriage, the couple had a child together, Ali. Umut hardly adapts to her new family and she has a difficult relationship with her siblings, especially with Musa (violent and trouble maker), who is constantly influenced by the twins against her. Umut works at a famous beauty salon.

Ozan (Sukru Ozyildiz) is a 25 years old young man, rich, funny and playboy who falls in love at first sight when he meets Umut by chance. When he learns that she works at a beauty salon, he goes there and insists to be hired as a hairdresser, for her sake. The two like each other very much and they begin to know each other better, so a profound love appears between them. However, Ozan still doesn't tell Umut much about him and who he really is, because from the very beginning she revealed her prejudices on the rich people. Because she comes from a poorer family and despises the rich, Ozan lies to her that he is poor too. Both keep their love away from people's sight: Umut because she has a traditionalist and strict family, Ozan because he lied about his origins and because his parents wouldn't accept Umut as their daughter in law.

As the relationship goes on, Ozan wants to reveal his girlfriend who he really is but never finds the right time to do it and the more he loves her, the harder it seems for him to tell the truth.

The series tries to be a modern Cinderella with new problems: how long can Ozan lie that he is poor? What will happen when Umut finds out the truth? Can they live together, having so different backgrounds and different conceptions of life?

Eventually they get married, but Ozan had an affair before marriage and that woman becomes pregnant with him. When Umut finds out, she leaves him and asks for divorce, trying to give a chance to a young man, Hakan, who loves her. From what I read on the internet, I understood that the series was supposed to have 60 episodes, but because the rating dropped sharply at a time, it ended after the first season as it follows: Umut and Ozan reconcile, Melis (the pregnant woman) dies and the two heroes grow the orphaned child together.
