The two cross paths at a bookstore and when they purchase the book "Yeşil Işık" ("Green Light"), and have a magical experience at the intervention of a figure observing them.

The figure who had been observing him all along, Yakup, turns out to be Ali's guardian angel and informs Ali that the person carrying his liver is Elif and the only solution would be to kill her.
