In the fifth episode of High Priestess, Swathi starts crying as she holds Vikram’s hand. The latter tells her that what she felt from his hand is the emptiness he feels as he is alone in this world. Vikram also tells her how he wasn’t able to live with her after their secret marriage in college as his father had vowed for him to marry someone else. When Swathi takes out a box of old photographs, Vikram gets emotional and tells her that he had to marry his dad’s business partner’s daughter.
Vikram finds a coconut on the floor while they are looking at the photographs and asks Swathi about it. She tells him the story of Prasad, a lawyer who saved a man named Jagadish who was accused of killing his sister Devaki. The judge proves Jagadish innocent based on witness accounts that said Devaki was practising witchcraft with her daughter. When Prasad returns home after the case, he steps on a pooja coconut accidentally.
He gets scared when he starts experiencing hauntings as the coconut starts appearing everywhere. Prasad goes and seeks Swathi’s help.
