Before Abdullah's incarcertion[]

After sharing a discussion with Alison, Hassan decides to wed Sahar into the family.

At Farah's tenth birthday party, Sahar is seen setting out a cake with a princess on top. Alison asks Sahar to remove the princess as she dislikes that sort of image for young girls. Sahar does so happily. After Alison and Sahar joke about Hassan's friend's eyebrows, Farah declares she cannot bowl, Sahar steps forward and shows Alison how it is done. Alison and Hassan look on happily, satisfied that their decision is working out.

After Sahar takes Farah to get her ears pierced without consulting Alison, Alison is upset by this and asks Sahar to leave the room with Farah while she explains her discomfort with Sahar having this much maternal power over Farah. Hassan explains how everyone is happy in the family, and how Alison should lighten up as Sahar is now part of their family too.

After, Alison breaks her beliefs and gets her ears pierced, she arrives at a diner and sees Sahar, Hassan and Farah having their photo taken as a family. Alison is upset by this and leaves ("Litchfield's Got Talent").
