Things are not going well for anyone in Bard of Blood Episode 6, “Heat Not a Furnace for Your Foe So Hot That It Do Singe Yourself”. Janna (Kirti Kulhari Sehgal) is dead. The Indian team has no exfiltration options — and to make matters worse, they’re worried that Nusrat (Abhishekh Khan), in his grief, is going to go nuts and ruin the rescue operation.
Luckily, Kabir (Emraan Hashmi) goes to visit Nusrat, Qasim (Shamaun Ahmed) and the BAF, and despite fingers of blame being pointed in every direction, he’s able to talk things down. In further good news, a potential escape route is discovered in the form of Jessica (Kallirroi Tziafeta), who can get the team out of the country but won’t do it for nothing. Kabir promises that he’ll deliver Mullah Khalid (Danish Husain) as payment, which seems reasonable; there will be a plane leaving, but he has to be there at 18:30 to get on it.
Shehzad (Jaideep Ahlawat), true to form, flees the scene and entrusts the protection of the Mullah to Adiba. And just in time too, since the rest of Bard of Blood Episode 6 spends its time on the various assaults and pursuits. This is the show finally taking the gloves off right in time for the finale, and its fun to see. Veer (Viineet Kumar Singh) is able to locate the “hostages” but is jumped by Adiba, but he sees through the ruse immediately, executing the decoy hostages and convincing her to drop her weapon.
Isha (Sobhita Dhulipala) is captured by Aftab (Asheish Nijhawan). Meanwhile, Veer and Nusrat pursue Shazhed while Kabir goes after the Mullah. In a surprising turn, Veer and Nusrat crash, and the latter comes round to find his brother-in-law, Qasim, pointing a gun at him.
