This episode states the story of a girl who takes to "Couch Hopping" for her first visit to her native country India. Later and rightly so she regrets her decision because of a traumatic experience.

The episode has several elements, its not just web but is also an eye-opener regarding the increasing crime against women and hacking. Crime against women in India is alarmingly rising. The stats says that every 20 minutes a girl is raped. The episode mainly conveys that misplacing your trust can be disastrous and one (especially girls) should be extremely careful in doing so.

The interactive session at the end with Mr. Sunny is actually the most useful part of the episode where you get to know about Google image verification tool (maybe I am the only one who was unknown to google's this function), also we learn enough to keep ourselves safe from account hacking. Though it seems a little far-fetched as to how a 18 year old easily cracked into a couple of facebook (friend-book in the episode) accounts.

One should never leave valuable stuff in the e-mails and should use different accounts for different social networking sites. Regarding the crime against women, i suggest only a change of men mentality and women to be a little extra careful all the time. There are many stringent laws in place, but many Incidents go unreported, thus laws are of no help, it only comes from inside. It all depends upon a man's character.

The episode was average. Direction: Average Script: Average, the story seemed a little made up and was flawed. Performances: Neelam is believable, Meghan is sweet and fitting for the characters, side actors didn't looked as dedicated as the leads. Music: Music is Catchy and good.

Overall an average episode which some what fails to ride over its potential.
