However, when Şule and Cengiz find out Melek is actually alive and kidnap her back, Şule decides to try and force Melek to love her back. And when Şule and Cengiz have a new baby, Hassan, Melek is forced to take care of him as well as herself. Despite this, Zeynep refuses to give up until she has Melek back with her.
