kaurwaki and ashoka’s conversing… Kaurwaki comes to him and ask are u worried about what you did …he says I donot care what others say..then he ask her whether he did right move. She says she has already written and shows a note done by oil stain Ashok Ki jaay.
Then she says to be a king you should know the hearts of the citizens which you have already done.
It’s morning , dharma is taking Ashoka somewhere. He ask her where they were going. She takes him to the room where draupad would be making preparation for his bath.
Dharma ask draupad if everything is ready and he says yes.
Ashoka is made to sit for bath ..Dharma does his aarti and later draupad’s mom and dharma apply haldi on ashoka”‘s body which creates an itching sensation for Ashoka. So he asks cold water so they go to bring water. Meanwhile kaurwaki hears Ashoka screaming so she runs to see what happen to him. Ashoka thinks that she is his mom and ask her to put water ..she being worried pours milk on him. While dharma draupad and his mom laugh watching it.
Then kaurwaki makes an excuse and runs away and Ashoka hides himself with towel.
Sushim is shown sleeping and a charu cursing dharma and Ashoka.. Helena comes and calls her for the abhishek and she refuses
Dharma makes Ashoka wear all the ornaments and they arrive to the fort..
The priest do the pooja and bindu is called for putting the crown ..sushim starts acting like a psyco saying he will die…
Bindu slaps Ashoka and says I slapped u to remind you that you are just a normal human and do not get greedy after sitting on the throne..Ashok takes bindu’s blessing and goes and sit on his yuvraaj throne..
Everyone cheers for Yuvraaj Ashoka. He sits on this throne with pride. Siamak looks angrily at him. Bindu signals everyone to calm down. He asks Ashoka to seek everyone’s blessings now. Ashoka starts with Rajmata Helena. She reluctantly blesses him. Mahamatya also blesses him against his wish. Bindu cannot see Charu anywhere. Shubhrasi tells him that Sushim is unwell so she is with him only. Ashoka offers to go and meet them personally. Bindu wants to come along but Ashoka says I want to talk to my brother alone.
Sushim is all panicked. Charu closes all the windows so as to calm him down. Just then there is a knock on the door. Charu is shocked to see Ashoka there. He bends down to seek her blessings but she moves back. Sushim is shivering badly. She goes to bring water for him. Ashoka beats Sushim on the chest to make his heart beat normal. Sushim is relived but all the more angry to see Ashoka. What are you doing here? Leave! Charu comes back with the pot of water. She also asks Ashoke to leave. Ashoka goes out. Charu feeds water to Sushim. Sushim takes Ashoka’s name. She makes him lie down and pats at his head to put him to sleep.
Ashoka is walking sadly in the corridor. He senses something and turns in time to avoid a stick coming his way. Sushim steps forward. He again attacks on Ashoka who tries to save himself all along. What are you doing? Sushim says I am doing what I should have done long ago. I am the eldest son. I should be made the Yuvraaj and not you. It is my right. Ashoka explains that age or traditions are of no importance here. What is important that the Yuvraaj should be the one who understands the problems of people and helps them! I also said I am asking for responsibility and not rights. Acharya Chanakya wanted me to fulfil his dream of united India. I had no such intention and neither do I feel that ways today as well. Try to understand. You don’t understand. Sushim keeps hitting at him. They climb stairs while fighting / saving themselves from the other. An ordinary person will teach me now? Do remember your limits Dassi-Putra! Ashoka warns him to keep his fight with him only. Don’t try to insult my mother. I will not accept it. A pot falls down. Soldiers look up. They see Sushim attacking on their Yuvraaj. Ashoka stops them from intervening. He sends them all back.
Charu comes crying to Bindu. I looked for him everywhere but he is nowhere to be seen. Find my son for me. He goes with her to look for Sushim.
Ashoka tells his brother his act is only shaming Mauryas.
A soldier updates Bindu on the fight between Ashoka and Sushim. They are fighting as if they are nemies.
Ashoka makes Sushim fall down in the process. He helps SUshim get up but Sushim attacks on him again. Bindu, Charu and others are on their way. Ashoka pushes him to save himself. Sushim hangs onto the railing of the boundary. Sushim notices Bindu and Charu coming there. He acts before them. Don’t let me fall down. Save me. He whispers to instigate Ashoka by calling him Daasi-Putra. You have come to this level so soon. I will make you fall down equally soon, even if I have to fall down for you! He lets go of Ashoka’s hand intentionally. Charu and Bindu look on in shock.
Radha Gupta is in Acharya Chanakya’s room. He is glad at how Ashoka has come this far. I hope no obstacle comes in our way now. Someone informs him about what happened outside.
Sushim acts before Bindu. Ashoka wants to kill me. Save me. Do something. He lies to Bindu. I went to apologize to him but he dint pay heed to me. I was hanging up when he threw me down. Ashoka calls it a lie but Charu blames him too. What mistake did we do that you are behaving like an enemy with us? Will killing a brother by another brother become the tradition of our family? Ashoka denies doing anything like that. Bindu tells everyone to keep the family matters between family only.
Sushim lies before his family while Ashoka tells the truth to them. Charu refuses to believe him. Ashoka asks them what he will get by attacking on Sushim. Siamak says you want to end all your competitors. You can do anything in your anger. Ashoka is taken aback. You know me well. How can you say that about me? Siamak replies that his brother Ashoka had no greed of throne. Sushim continues acting. He says things to instigate Ashoka. Ashoka calls him a liar. He should dare to speak the truth if he can. I did attack him but only when he prompted me to. He insulted my mother. I requested him not to do so but he did not listen to me. I got angry. Helena asks him if he wants to become another Justin. You could have spoken to your father. Sushim survived luckily. Ashoka calls Sushim’s words a lie. Bindu walks out saying he does not want to listen to anything. Everyone follows him outside.
Sushim mocks Ashoka. This is just the beginning. Wait and watch. Ram went in exile for 14 years. I will send you for life. Don’t take it as a warning. This is a prediction. Ashoka says I am relived now that I did the right thing by asking for the throne. We have different motives to get it. I will never let you succeed for my people! Sushim goes out.
Ashoka is practising. Charu compliments Sushim for twisting things in their favour. Samrat did not doubt you. He got upset with Ashoka only! They see Ashoka not being able to hit any of his aims downstairs. Sushim says he will get insulted just like he insulted me. I have vowed to send that Daasi-Putra back in the jungles with his mother. I wont stop till it happens!
