Nicator comes to the jail to meet Helena. She happily hugs him. I knew you would come. Save me. Nicator says Bindu made the biggest mistake by keeping you alive. We will win this time. I will take revenge for every little thing from Maurya. I thought you will make these people your servant. Aren’t you ashamed to lose out to these people time and again? Is this why I accepted Chanakya’s proposal of marriage with Chandragupta Maurya? You could not do anything even after getting too many chances. You lost your chance. It is a shameful thing that my daughter turned out to be like this. What will I be left with if this news gets leaked? I have no option but to free you now. I will have to do it to save my respect. First option is that I will try to take you out
Sushim is not sure if these preps are only to celebrate Holi. My experience tells me that when someone is trying to be overly sweet then there is something wrong for sure. Mahamatya seconds him. I will alert my spies. Sushim wants to do it himself. I get one chance to prove myself before father. Siamak hears them.
Nicator requests Bindu to free Helena. You very well know if this news break out then everyone will look down upon me as a weak Samrat who could not save his daughter. Unani would like me to take Helena to Unan and punish her. Bindu reasons that Helena is his criminal. If I leave her then entire Magadh will think I am a weak king. Nicator says we are bound by relations. I request you to have mercy on Helena. Bindu says be grateful that she is still alive. I regret my decision now. Nicator and Bindu stay put on their words. Nicator’s soldiers walk inside. I know how to make the impossible possible. Bindu gets angry. What do you want to say? Nicator calms himself down. I only came to celebrate and not fight. I dint intend to interfere in your family matters. Forget what I said just now. If you still have some doubts then we will end it on Holi tonight. Bindu asks him how he knows about their festivals so much. Nicator replies that he has come fully prepared this time.
Ashoka wants to go to Takshak’s palace alone but everyone insists upon accompanying him. Kaurvaki too comes there dressed in a similar attire like Ashoka. Ashoka tells her against it. She reasons that she accepted his decision when it was about his motherland. Now it is about my motherland. You will have to allow me to go with you. I inspected the place around the river. There are some points which are in dark. If we enter from the backdoor then no one will be able to see us. I will lead and misguide the crocodiles. You all can follow me and enter inside the palace as and when you see a chance. Maharaj Jagannath looks proudly at her.
Sushim intentionally drops something so he can send the soldiers away. He covers himself well with a shawl and leaves. Siamak follows him.
Kaurvaki throws stones in the river. They wait for the crocodiles’ reaction. The crocodiles finally swim up. Kaurvaki, Ashoka, Maharaj Jagannath, Nayak and Acharya Radha Gupta follow their plan. They keep stabbing the crocodiles with the spear all along. There are some soldiers on the trees too who keep shooting arrows. Kaurvaki loses her balance and falls in the river. Everyone gets worried. Ashoka too jumps so as to save her. Kaurvaki stabs a crocodile even when she is in water. Ashoka helps her.
Takshak tells his servant he does not touch alcohol on the night of Holi. It is the same night when Maurya’s attacked us stealthily. I have to be alert.
Ashoka and his team reach the back door of Takshak’s palace. Ashoka taps at the door. The soldiers are intrigued. They open the door and get beaten up. Ashoka and his enter inside.
Sushim keeps looking back to check if he is being followed. He begins to run so as to divert the person if in case there is someone who is keeping an eye on him. He comes to Nicator’s camp. There are so many soldiers here. Something is wrong. Siamak too comes to the camp site. Where did Sushim go?
One of the soldiers gain conscious. He runs inside to alert everyone.
Sushim has changed into Nicator’s soldier’s attire.
The soldiers surround Ashoka and his people.
Nicator tells the plan to his army. Holika Dahan’s preps will be going on in the palace right now. He tells his commander about the weak point of the palace. You will first catch the queens, then the kids and then Bindu. Sushim is standing there as well. Siamak hits him on his head from behind. Sushim falls unconscious. Nicator demands to know how Sushim reached here. Why dint anyone catch him? What if Siamak had not found him? Take him away.
Takshak comes to meet Ashoka and his group.
Takshak comes to meet Ashoka and his group. Ashoka realises he hasn’t drank alcohol now. I will have to do something so he loses his senses. Takshak demands for an intro. Ashoka replies that brave people don’t fear anyone. I broke the security which you were so proud of. Takshak says you wont be able to go back alive from here. Takshak pities Jagannath’. You came here to fight with this kid. Kaurvaki says I pity you. You mistake your death to be a kid. Takshak appreciates Kaurvaki’s beauty. Kaurvaki calls him a coward or he would have accepted the challenge. Ashoka agrees. He is already scared to see me. It is no point challenging him. Radha Gupta gives Ashoka’s intro before Takshak. Takshak reprimands Jagnanth for trusting Maurya’s again. You dint learn from your mistake. Ashoka and Takshak challenge each other for a fight. Whoever makes the other rub his nose on earth first wins!
At night, Charu looks at the soldiers making preps for Holika Dahan. She is worried for Sushim. He should be here by now. Is he in some problem?
Sushim demands to be freed. Nicator says you can only shout but it wont help. Your father will not come here. There was only person, your beloved brother Ashoka, who could come to save you. Sadly, he isn’t here. It is impossible from him to come back from where he went to.
Takshak and Ashoka engage in a sword fight. Ashoka ends up stabbing Takshak but Takshak pulls the sword out. He pushes Ashoka.
Nicator comes to celebrate Holika Dahan with Bindu and the royal family. Siamak looks happy. Charu thinks Sushim too should have been here if Nicator was here. I don’t know what he is up to. Bindu asks for Sushim. Charu covers up saying he said he wont play Holi. Holi was Drupad’s favourite festival. He said he wont play it ever. Bindu too does not want to play Holi but is helpless as he is the Samrat. Dharma thinks God knows the truth. You (Bindu) will realise how pure Ashoka’s heart is when the right time comes. Ashoka’s every deed is for the good of Magadh. Give strength to my son so he succeeds sin establishing truth and dharma.
Takshak is holding Ashoka by his neck and pushes him towards dirt. Ashoka picks up a stone and begins to attack him. Takshak loses conscious. Ashoka picks up his sword. He has his back to Takshak. Takshak gets up. Kaurvaki notices this in shock as she takes a step towards Ashoka. Ashoka slits Takshak’s neck.
BIndu starts the ritual of Holika Dahan. Dharma hopes Ashoka too ends all the evil from Magadh this way. History will only remember the good things then. Nicator thinks this fire has the hidden darkness that will eat up Magadh. We will tomorrow play Holi with Bindu and his blood.
Kevalnath wakes up. He gets happy recalling it is Holi today. I got this empire on the day of Holi only.
He holds out his hands while greeting Sun. Blood falls in his hands. Kevalnath shouts in shock. This cannot be. Ashoka says i don’t like this commotion in the morning. Kevalnath calls for the soldiers. Ashoka says i killed Takshak and entered inside your palace. No one saw me. You still think they can hurt me? Kevalnath demands to know who he is. What do you want? Ashoka suggests him to return what he snatched from someone. Kevalnath declines. Ashoka says i have the upper hand here. i will give you another chance. He shows the army to him. Bindu is helping Jagannath. I, Ashoka Maurya, am here following his orders. My brother and father are only waiting for my signal. They will attack from both the sides as soon as i send them a signal. You have to decide with what you wish to play Holi – blood or colours.
Siamak wishes Holi to his parents’ photo with blood. He talks to Justin’s photo. I don’t know why God dint made me your son. I don’t know why but I feel close to you. I promise you I will take revenge for the insult done to you. I will also fulfil your wish today.
Siamak greets his father. Don’t worry all bad things come to an end. I will free you from the same. Bindu is impressed by his maturity. So much happened in your life but you are so rooted to everything. You have always been calm and have never demanded for anything. Where are the other family members? Siamak says I haven’t seen brother since long. Bindu asks him to inform Charu he wants to meet her. I will wait in Shubhrasi’s room. He wishes Siamak Happy Holi by applying colour on his face. Dharma feels sad. I dont know why Ashoka and I are being punished. I worry more about this father son duo rather than Magadh.
Kevalnath apologises to his brother for becoming greedy. Jagannath forgives him. They share a hug. Jagannath’s wife hugs her husband and daughter as well. Kevalnath announces that he will be given his thrown back today on the day of Holi only. Ashoka wonders what will be happening in Patliputra.
