Character Name: Bela
Played by: Punam Patel
Appearing in: Jay’s Sister
Family Members: Jay Arondekar (her brother), Champa Arondekar (her mother)
Personality:

Bela is a single woman who lives in Boston and from what her brother has hinted at, and is very easily and quickly attached to the men she dates. She does not take break ups well and will often go into an emotional funk for some time. Jay states that his sister is very “thirsty” which means that she tends to be desperate for men’s attention and affection. In “Jay’s Sister“, when Bela first comes to the house, she is kind to Sam but it is clear that they aren’t very close. She doesn’t seem to understand Sam’s sense of humor. However, she is excited for her visit because she claims she is over her ex-boyfriend, in fact, she had met someone new. She also states that the guy is not her normal type as he is a “douchy, finance bro” type” but that he is also very sensitive and very handsome and that they have connected in a way much different than what she ever expected.

Bela is definitely in tune with her emotions and has no problem expressing them freely. During “Jay’s SisterBela goes from excitement to anger quickly after she learns that Trevor is someone who has died and that she had been possibly catfished. She then becomes disgusted after learning that the messages from the profile she had matched with originated on Jay and Sam’s kitchen IPad. By the end of the episode, Bela’s faith in her brother and sister in law is restored after Sam is able to translate for Trevor why he did what he did and how he truly feels for her.

Like her brother, Bela has a bit of a goofy personality which is evidenced by her nickname for her brother. She enjoys clubbing, visiting the Hamptons, and listening to 90s jam bands.

History:

Bela Arondekar is Jay’s sister who currently lives in Boston. In “Jay’s Sister“, she is single and had just broken up with her boyfriend, Gabe. In this episode, she is visiting her brother, Jay, and sister in law, Sam for the first time since they’ve moved to the Hudson Valley. Jay is worried about the emotional state of his sister and asks Sam to tread lightly although Sam is excited for the possibility of getting closer to her sister in law by helping her deal with the sadness about her break up and get over her ex.

Before her visit, Bela has been active on dating sites and apps and had recently set her location to the Hudson Valley in hopes of meeting someone new. And when she first arrives at the Woodstone Mansion, she is excited about a new guy she had recently matched with. Upon showing the couple the new match, Jay is excited for her commenting on how good the man looks. However, when Sam sees the picture of the man, she immediately recognizes him as Trevor and is furious and curious as to how Bela could’ve matched with someone who’s been dead for 20 years.

In a panic, and in an effort to preserve her feelings, Sam and Jay decide to message Bela on behalf of Trevor that he has moved away to Newfoundland and won’t be able to continue their online relationship. When she reads his messages, Bela suspects that he is lying and when she searches Trevor’s profile picture online, she learns that it’s a picture of a man who died 20 years ago. She immediately believes she’s been catfished.

She messages him over and over again and notices that each time she messages him, there is a notification sound coming from the kitchen. She orders Jay to unlock the IPad that they keep in the kitchen, and it is there where she learns that the notifications are due to the messages that she had been sending. This infuriates her, believing that her brother and sister in law believed her so incapable of finding a man on her own that they would create a fake profile to match with her. She immeidately goes upstairs to pack and states sht she is leaving the house.

As she is packing, Jay and Sam beg her not to leave and in an effort to get her to stay and salvage what’s left of their relationship, Sam tells Bela that a ghost was the one who created the profile from the IPad and matched with her. As anyone else would be when hearing something like this, Bela is very skeptical. Sam argues that this is true and asks Issac, Alberta, and Thorfinn to use their powers to help Bela believe her. It’s not until Pete is able to peer into Bela’s bag and tell Sam what is in it, with Sam translating those contents to Bela and that she is able to guess how many fingers Bela is holding up thanks to the ghost’s help, that she finally believes Sam. Sam then confides to Bela that besides Jay, she is the only person who knows her ability. Bela agrees to keep this information to herself and is flattered to learn that she is the only one who knows besides Jay. This helps to strengthen the relationship between the two women.
