Biography

Salumeh Farooq is the wife of Rahim Farooq (the episode's main antagonist) and the mother of their daughter, Maya, who was dating Iraq War vet Brian Nassir. Maya had confided in Salumeh regarding the relationship, as she believed that her father would immensely disprove. Their fears were correct, as Rahim had arranged Maya to be married to another man (who, upon seeing them together, asked Rahim to stop all that), and he set out to kill his daughter for breaking their tradition.

Fearing for her daughter's safety, Salumeh followed Rahim to Brian's garage, where a violent confrontation took place. Rahim was found burned to death at the garage, with both Brian and Maya as suspects. However, it was revealed that Rahim was only left unconscious by the couple, who ran off afterwards. Salumeh found her husband and restrained him with some tires. He woke up and berated her for "corrupting" their daughter. With the fear that Rahim would kill Maya, Salumeh doused him with gasoline and set him on fire, while tearfully running away as she couldn't look at her husband burning to death.

Salumeh's high heels revealed her as the killer, as high heel prints were found in the ash. Maya's heels were deemed too thick for the prints, while Salumeh's were a match. Salumeh confessed to killing her husband, stating that she didn't want to put Maya through any hardship or torment. She was later arrested for her villainous actions, but not before embracing Maya one more time.
