We discuss predictions for the Apple TV+ series Shantaram season 1, episode 9, and include the release date and where to watch online.

Shantaram season 1, episode 8 involves a few subplots, including the rivalry between Walid (Mel Odedra) and Khader (Alexander Siddig), which accumulates in a war over water in the slums. Karla (Antonia Desplat) tries to persuade Sunita (Tharanya Tharan) to call Pandey (Alvin Maharaj), Qasim (Alyy Khan) negotiates with Khader, and Modena (Elham Ehsas) and Maurizio (Luke Pasqualino) plan their escape from Bombay.

The latest installment falls into its usual trappings, Lin is worshipped like a God again, the narration is used lazily to spell out the story and many clichéd moments are intermingled into the plot. Although there is an exciting fight sequence near the episode’s climax that you may want to stick around for. Here’s what happened in episode eight of Shantaram:

  • A flashback reveals how Lin started off his drug habit, falling for Gemma at a protest. He calls her name during his fever dreams. Lin has finally contracted cholera and Karla nurses him back to full health.
  • Kavita continues her investigation into Lin’s illegal past.
  • Lin declares his love to Karla and tells her he must leave the city, although Karla doesn’t want to get attached.
  • Prabhu is granted permission to court Parvati. He runs to tell Lin, who is greeted by cheers from the crowd, now that he is better.
  • Rafiq arrives with trucks of water and smashes the bottles in front of the crowds. He warns them not to do business with Khader. They beat a few of the locals to show they are serious.
  • Karla asks Sunita to call Pandey and organize a meeting at the Palace. Sunita refuses, stating that she is in love with Pandey and doesn’t want to hurt him. Karla tries to talk her around, highlighting Pandey’s manipulative ways. If he loves her he will rescue her.
  • Modena and Maurizio decide to sell the remaining drugs and run away with all the profits. This would upset Madame Zhou no end, but they would be stinking rich in the short term.
  • Lin goes to Khader to explain the situation with Rafiq. Khader talks about the war between himself and Walid. They decide to meet with Qasim to come to an agreement. Khader will provide the slum dwellers with electricity, plumbing, jobs, and education until construction begins. Qasim accepts.
  • Modena deceives Maurizio and runs off with all the money.
  • Abdullah and Khader’s cronies help protect the locals against Rafiq and his men. A fight ensues over the water. Rafiq’s men are outnumbered and flee, leaving the water behind. Lin celebrates this well-earned victory but is saddened to leave Bombay.

Viewers worldwide can catch Shantaram season 1, episode 9, with a subscription to Apple TV+ on the date mentioned above.


  • As the title of the next episode suggests, Lin has a big decision to make, does he leave Bombay or does he stay. If we’re only on episode nine of twelve, my money would be on him sticking around a little longer. Kavita hasn’t fully figured out Lin’s deception just yet and the authorities are still to arrive on his doorstep. Lin has a little more time left in Bombay it would seem.
  • Khader has won over Qasim and the locals, they will side with him over Walid. Walid has tried to retaliate with Rafiq’s water ban, but they have been defeated. He will have to formulate a new plan to beat Khader and his men. The slum dwellers are sure to be caught up in the middle of this war again.
  • Lin will try to win over Karla and they will plan their own escape together.
  • Modena will flee with Lisa. They will book a plane ticket to leave, although Maurizio will be hot on their tail.
