Sushim nods. I know Ashoka will do every possible thing to look for Gondna. He will never look for Gondna in our palace and my room though. Mahamatya finds it risky but Sushim stays put. You have become coward and weak with age. She will be safe before my eyes. If Ashoka gets a doubt then he will have to face me first of all. Helena likes his idea. I am safe there. Sushim says Ashoka cannot imagine Gondna living in his own house. Charu asks SUshim about Nirankush. You have thought well about Rajmata. She can be safe this way but what about Niranksuh. What if he reaches Nirankush? Siamak suggests killing him. Sushim remarks that he talks like Mahamatya too at times. We will get nothing by killing Nirankush. We can use him to kill Ashoka. Siamak is confused. Sushim explains his plan. I will send Nirankush to Virat. Once Ashoka reaches him following Nirankush then his failure / death is certain. Everyone knows how much Virat hates Magadh. Ashoka will certainly die from Virat’s hands if he meets him!
Virat is shown atop a hill. Some soldiers push a citizen in Virat’s feet. Virat says the only difference between human and animal is of motive and aim. Animal does anything to stay alive while humans stay alive to do something. A giant eagle comes up. The man is scared. Virat says I will still survive if I am cut into pieces and thrown before this eagle. Face this eagle. If you succeed in taking out even one feather of this eagle then you will get to live. In case you fail to do so then you will become the food of this eagle. The man shouts in disagreement but Virat laughs maniacally.
Kaurvaki opens her eyes. Dharma and Bindu are happy to see her fine. Bindu asks Kaurvaki how it all happened. She thinks that telling them truth will mean telling them her identity. Devi speaks up before Kaurvaki. She might not recall now but she fell from the stairs. Bindu buys the theory and leaves telling Kaurvaki to take rest. Dharma makes Kaurvaki drink some kaadha again. Kaurvaki thanks Dharma for taking care of her. Dharma says not I but Devi looked after you, day and night. She goes to bring medicine for Kaurvaki. Kaurvaki asks about Ashoka from Devi as soon as Dharma is gone. Where is Ashoka? I have to talk to him. He was with me all night. I know it was him. Dharma stops by the door as soon as she hears Ashoka’s name. Kaurvaki continues to ask for Ashoka. He recognizes me, right? Devi recalls Ashoka’s promise. It is your illusion.
Ashoka dint come here. I was with you all night. Kaurvaki is sure she isn’t having any illusion. Ashoka was with me here all night. I still sense his touch. Devi repeats her lie but Kaurvaki is sure of it. My heart is saying so. Ashoka did come here. Ashoka and Dharma look on from outside (from two different sides). Kaurvaki falls asleep yet again. Dharma is tensed. She meets the other princesses in the corridor. They ask about Padmavati’s (kaurvaki’s) health. Dharma shares that she is better now. I have decided to postpone the next competition for 2 days. Chanda wishes to meet her. Anindini taunts Kaurvaki for the reason of delay in competition. Devi retorts her on her ideals of love. Anindini is not at all interested in her lecture. I have come here for competition and not to show any kind of mercy on someone. She should back off from the competition now. Chanda refuses to allow Kaurvaki to do so. You please get better. Anindini leaves from there. Chanda and other princesses suggest Kaurvaki what to eat to recover fast. Other princesses leave as they feel hungry talking about food itself. Chanda looks at Kaurvaki. You are my biggest opponent yet I wish that you participate in the competition so I am sure I won it honestly and on the basis of my qualities. Kaurvaki tells her she isn’t her competitor. I only want to marry Ashoka. Chanda is surprised.
Ashoka asks Acharya RG about Nirankush but Acharya RG has no clue about it till now. Ashoka advises him to appoint his best spies for this task. We have to find him even from hell.
Nirankush is tied to ropes and brought before Virat. Nirankush is afraid of the eagle who takes the letter from Nirankush’s hand and gives to his master (Virat). Virat welcomes Nirankush to his world. You will see dreams of living here but you will live as if you were to die today only. Nirankush looks confused. Virat smiles. You will understand.
Ashoka is sleeping. Siamak enters inside palace stealthily. He sends all the soldiers in the corridor to check the security at the back gate. He opens the secret passage seeing their way clear. Sushim steps out. did Ashoka or anyone get a doubt? Siamak denies. They bring Helena. She has covered herself with a shawl. Helena says I feel as if you are taking me to death. If Ashoka finds out then it wont be good. Siamak mumbles that don’t know what all is left for them to see. Ashoka asks Siamak to tell him if he has some other wish. I will fulfil it. Siamak and Sushim turn around in fear. Ashoka says I dint expect this from you. I left some task on you. You cannot help an old woman. See how she is picking up her baggage. He asks her if she is fine. Helena knows Ashoka will recognize her voice if she says anything. She covers her face well. Sushim tells Ashoka to talk to him. Ashoka says I wanted to know what you both are doing here at this hour. Charu comes in. I want to ask you the same question. What’s the reason of you bring outside Samrat’s room at night, the reason of you worrying for Padmavati and whenever anything goes wrong? Ashoka replies that he only cares for the questions or points related to Gondna. I don’t find it nexessary to answer you. He turns to go. All four of them leave right away.
Sushim tells mahamatya to look after his Rajmata. This is the safest place till the matter calms down. No one can come here without my permission. Mahamatya tells Helena he has everything arranged here for her. let me know if you need something. Please don’t go out on your own. Sushim asks Mahamatya to remind Samrat of doing a puja for Rajmata’s soul. It is important to make sure no one doubts Rajmata.
Bindu very sweetly makes Vit drink some kaadha. Ashoka is happy to see them thus. He leaves in between. Vit drinks more than half of it and keeps the glass back. Mahamatya watches their bonding from the door. Vit gets his gift. He hugs his father sweetly for the gift. Mahamatya comes inside. Bindu asks him what happened that he came to talk to him at this hour. Mahamatya presents the idea before Bindu. Bindu points out that they haven’t done in 10 years. How did you think of it now? Mahamatya says it is important for her soul’s peace. She might be roaming here somewhere in the form of a ghost. Vit runs out feeling scared. Bindu calls it superstition. I don’t have time for this. She was a traitor. I wont respect a traitor by doing puja for her. You can leave if you have nothing important to talk about. Mahamatya leaves.
Helena hopes she can sleep peacefully. She is disturbed by the noise of Vit’s toy. Vit’s toy reaches that room. Helena and Vit look at each other.
Helena hopes she can sleep peacefully. She is disturbed by the noise of Vit’s toy. Vit’s toy reaches that room. Vit stops in shock realising that this room belongs to Sushim. He isn’t here though it seems. Helena peeks at Vit from behind the curtains. If he sees me then! She hides by the time Vit goes past the curtains while looking for his toy. Helena covers her mouth well as she sits behind a giant vase hiding herself. Vit finds his toy but then he hears the sound of Helena’s anklets. He stops in shock. Mahamatya’s words echo in his head. He shouts ghost loudly. Bindu and Dharma come there. All the other family members come as well. Ashoka asks his brother to open his eyes. we are here only. There is no one. Bindu asks Vit why he looks so scared. What happened? Vit speaks of a ghost behind the curtain. Sushim wonders where Rajmata is. Bindu asks his son to come with him. Vit is scared but Bindu assures him nothing will happen to him. They both look behind the curtains.
Bindu assures Vit there is nothing called ghost. Vit insists that he saw the ghost of an old lady. Her feet were really white unlike us. Ashoka asks him if he saw something else too. Sushim questions Vit as to what he was doing in his room. What was your motive of coming here? Bindu reprimands Sushim for talking to his younger brother like this. He is already scared. Why are you troubling him all the more now? Vit shares that he was playing with his toy which came to Sushim Bhaiya’s room during that. You trust me, right? Bindu nods. You are Dharma’s son. you can never lie. Ashoka points out that it might be some outsider. We should inspect all the rooms. Bindu agrees with him. Go look for him. Ashoka goes. Bindu asks everyone to take rest as it is too late. He goes with Dharma and Vit. Everyone leaves except Mahamatya, Sushim and Siamak. They look for Rajmata in the room but in vain. Sushim calls it their good luck that Vit dint see them. Siamak is upset with his decision of bringing Rajmata here. Sushim is sure everyone will get over this. They will think of it to be a kid’s illusion. Both the brothers argue over the matter. Sushim tells Siamak to worry about Rajmata. Everyone is alert right now. If she gets caught then the result will be scary. Mahamatya suggests that all three of them go in different directions to look for Rajmata.
Helena is running in the corridor. Nayak sends the soldiers in different direction to look for any kind of impostor. Helena steps out of her hiding place. Ashoka is coming from the opposite direction so she stands behind a pillar. Ashoka hears the sound of anklets as she moves. He turns but finds no one there.
Sushim is looking for Helena. Ashoka notices him looking for the impostor anxiously. When I spoke of the idea then he showed no interest. He calls out for Sushim. I have the responsibility of internal affairs so I will look for the impostor. Dont be so curious. Siamak adds that the impostor was found in Sushim’s room. It is the responsibility of all of us as it is related to Magadh. Ashoka wonders how he is so worried about Magadh and its affairs suddenly. Plus how come you are taking Sushim’s side today? Anyways, remember that I will be keeping an eye on you both. He leaves. Sushim and Siamak resume their search.
Bindu sends Vit with Dharma. Charu thinks to go to Samrat now that Dharma isn’t there. Let me dress up first. She sends back Nayak and his troops as she heads to her room. Charu sits down to get ready. Helena is in the same room. A mirror breaks down wherein Helena’s reflection is seen. Charu screams seeing it. All the kids hear her scream and rush to her room. Helena tells Charu to be quiet. It is me only. Vit, Dharma, Bindu and Mahamatya also come to Charu’s room. Vit asks Charu if she too saw the ghost. Charu says yes. Ashoka asks for details. Bindu does not buy it. Vit is a kid. How could you believe in ghost? Vit says Badi Ma is strong. Why would she scare someone when she herself is so scary? Nayak hides his smile. Vit shares the description of the ghost he saw. Bindu tells him against it. It can scare the guests in the palace. Will you like it? Ashoka says father is right. There is no ghost here. I will find it if there is one. Vit requests his father to sleep with him tonight. Bintu willingly agrees. Everyone leaves. Sushim asks about Rajmata.
Princesses are scared of the so called ghost. Anindini hopes she does not have to really face a ghost to get Ashoka. Kaurvaki is sure there is some secret. It cannot be a ghost. Is Ashoka’s life in danger? I have to find out. Devi advises her to rest for now. Everyone is looking for that person. He will be found soon.
Helena is in the corridor. I know every corner of the palace. I have to hide to keep Gondna’s secret safe from Ashoka. I can never let him catch me. She hides to avert Nayak who happens to pass from there along with his soldiers. Bindu and Dharma go in the same direction as Helena. Helena hides in a closet in Bindu’s room. Dharma asks Bindu why he looks so troubled. He denies. I recalled Mahamatya’s words a few hours back. he spoke of Rajmata’s ghost. I am confused thinking about the same. i am not scared. I have only been thinking. You go to Vit. I will join you soon. Dharma leaves. Diya’s blow off because of the wind and bad weather. Bindu senses someone’s presence in his almirah. He takes out his sword, demanding to know who is inside. He opens the cupboard and is shocked to see Helena. He steps back in shock and drops his sword. He holds his chest in pain as he falls unconscious on the floor.
Next morning, Vaid tells the family members that Samrat fell unconscious. There is nothing to worry now. Ashoka wishes to know how it happened. Dharma says Vaid ji said He saw something because of which he fell unconscious. Ashoka refuses to believe that his father believes in ghost. Mahamatya repeats his theory of ghosts. Bindu calls it more than just a coincidence. Sushim wonders if his father is having some doubt. Bindu speaks of all the coincidences since Mahamatya first spoke of Rajmata. Sushim and Siamak check his father’s ideology on ghost by presenting counter arguments. Bindu calls it unusual that he saw the ghost of Rajmata the day he refused to do her ghost. I wont do the puja for a traitor but I will do it to free this house from the ghost. We will pray for our peace. Sushim is really content with his idea of hiding Rajmata in the palace itself (in the cave). Flashback shows Rajmata vowing to send Ashoka to pataal loka as he is giving her so much trouble in this age. Flashback ends. Bindu tells mahamatya to make preps for puja. Someone brings a message for Bindu. Sushim thinks his plan is going right. No one can save Ahsoka now.
