Nayak meets the security head of Hindu Kush. The guy offers him liquor. Nayak declines. The guy asks him how he is under the effect of his swear. You wont say anything against Kichak! Nayak gives him a letter. The head of security cannot leave so suddenly but Nayak insists. The guy thinks who to give this responsibility to in his absence.
Kaurvaki imagines her father. She begins to walk towards a stone. Ashoka calls out for her. She trips because of the stone but he saves her in the nick of time. Big stones hang down from ropes.
Amatya keeps moving ahead.
Ashoka asks Kaurvaki to trust him for the road ahead. She points out that she had not come here had she not trusted him. He throws the map and lifts her in his arms. She looks at him in surprise. He walks ahead determined. On the other hand, Amatya keeps following the map. Ashoka crosses the path filled with hanging stones while still holding Kaurvaki in his arms. They share an eye lock after he keeps her down. He notices a stone coming towards her and holds in her. he pushes the stone towards the wall. They both go tumbling down to another corner. Amatya comes there just then. He falls down after getting hurt from a stone.
Acharya Devrath remarks it is an important day towards the dream of united India. If Ashoka is successful in reaching Kichak’s palace then it will prove that Achayra Chanakya was right in trusting him. I will do every possible thing to fulfil his dream. I will help Ashoka in every way. If he fails then the trust and hopes of a lot of people will break. Most importantly, Acharya Chanakya’s dream will be incomplete.
Kaurvaki looks teary eyed at the door. She tries to open it but in vain. Ashoka too tries with her. He can see her trying so hard. How can you be so dejected even after reaching so close to your destination? Ashoka says a person fails when he thinks he will fail! I have decided not to fail. I can even break open this door if I have to! She rubs at the door. some alphabets are etched there. Ashoka is sure they hold some meaning. Maybe they are some indication s to how to open the door. He looks at the alphabets. We have to find the words that can fit in. She reasons how they will figure out the correct one. He too regrets not having the map with him. He thinks of his mother and of Acharya Chanakya’s words. He joins the words right – Akhand Bharat (united India)! The gate opens up. Kaurvaki smiles through tears. They both walk ahead.
Kichak gets to know that Nayak is heading back towards Takhshila along with the head of security of Hindu Kush. Kichak tells the soldier to inform the soldiers.
Kaurvaki and Ashoka are happy that they are nearing their missions. Kaurvaki and Ashoka thank each other for helping one another. They tell each other to take care of themselves before they part ways. Ashoka suggests her to meet him in half of the day here only if she wants to return with him. She nods. They begin to go separate ways but then turn to look at each other again.
Ashoka notices the commander coming towards him only. He hides in time. Kaurvaki is sure her father must be given some task by Kichak if he is alive. I will be able to find him if I reach the royal kitchen. She hears the sound of approaching footsteps. She hides behind a table. Kichak comes there with his soldiers. She is relieved to see him gone.
Ashoka enters inside the room of Kichak’s sister. The commander (Bhairav) comes there. He tells her about the security head on his way to Takshshila along with Nayak. The Unani army can easily enter inside Takshshila. Kichak will soon stamp this decision. Ashoka thinks to do something before it is too late.
A Daasi notices him and calls out for the soldiers. Ashoka manages to flee from there.
Kichak asks the head of security (from Hindu Kush) to help him in opening the door. Kichak offers to help him get out of the fort and spend time with his old friends. You can live the rest of your life in luxury. The guy refuses to go against Maurya’s. Unani’s will attack us as soon as we open the door! I will not open the door!
Kaurvaki points a knife at the neck of a Daasi. She asks him where she is taking it to. The Daasi shares that she is taking it for the man who managed to enter inside the palace. Mahanayak dint kill him though. She gets to know about the location as to where that person has been kept.
The head of security refuses to go against Maurya’s. I will not open the door! Kichak says I will have to imprison you then. The guy tells him not to make this mistake. The guards will rebel. Kichak isn’t afraid of it. I fought with the army of Kalinga alone. If I can fight with them all by myself then! His sister says as per Magadh’s rules, the one carrying the royal coin makes the rules. You are dedicated to it. Nayak does not look happy. The guy asks for a proof. One of Kichak’s courtiers tells him to be in his limits. Your words hint that you are calling Mahanayak a liar! Kichak stops him. He asks the head of security to come with him.
The soldiers direct Kaurvaki towards the prisoner’s room. They mistake her as the new Daasi. On the other hand, Ashoka is chased by soldiers.
Jagannath is all chained but still made to work. The head of security asks Kichak about him. Kichak points out that he is the example of what happens to anyone who rebels against me. I could have killed him but I enjoy seeing him in pain every single day. His death couldn’t have made me this happier.
Kaurvaki is shocked / hurt / emotional to see her father’s condition. He stops in his tracks as she calls him Baba. He thinks of Kaurvaki. The soldiers enter just then so she runs out. The soldiers beat Jagannath as he stopped moving the wheel. He prays for Kaurvaki’s welfare. She cries seeing him getting beaten by the soldiers. Did that Daasi inform the soldiers? She goes from there.
The soldiers catch up on Ashoka from both the sides. He still manages to beat them and flee from there. He reaches the room where Kichak has eneterd along with the head of security but the door is closed before he can go in.
Dharma gets to know about someone setting Raj Vaid’s house on fire. He died inside. Dharma asks about Madhvi and her son but Ishwari has no clue. Dharma’s main Daasi asks her if she saw someone. Ishwari shares that there was indeed someone. I threw a piece of burning wood at that person’s hand. That person entered inside the palace. I couldn’t see the face of that person. Dharma is disturbed to know that someone from the royal family is involved in this matter.
Kichak shows the royal coin to the head of security guy. He extends his hand to touch it but Kichak stops him. I only allowed you to see it, and not touch it! The guy says having it doesn’t mean you are allowed to use it. Samrat Bindu hasn’t authorised you. Kichak says I will have to force you if you don’t agree willingly. The soldiers hold his hand forcibly. Nayak looks on helplessly. Ashoka reaches there just then. He stands face to face with Kichak. Kichak recalls him to be the same kid who threw stone at the hand of the soldier. Ashoka points out that Samrat Bindu gave it to his son, Prince Ashoka. You have not been authorised by Samrat to make any such order. Look carefully. It is me only who will see till the end of your life. I am your end. Kichak laughs at him. You came here but how will you go back. Ashoka isn’t afraid of death. If you kill me then you too wont be able to survive. Kichak pulls out his sword. The soldiers take aim at Ashoka. Ashoka picks up the royal coin and ducks. The soldiers shoot arrows at each other only. They die. Ashoka manages to run away. Kichak orders his soldiers to bring Ashoka alive! The security head of Hindu Kush is happy and so is Nayak.
Kichak and his soldiers chase Ashoka. Bhami finds Kichak hitting things in their room. He says Ashoka ran away with my coin. She points out that it wasn’t his after all! Accept your misdeeds and be ready for your downfall. Kichak angrily gets ready to kill her. You speak against your Swami. You don’t deserve to live. Ashoka hits at his hand in time. Kichak is all the more angry now.
Ashoka and Kaurvaki meet. The soldiers surround them. Ashoka fights with them.
Kichak questions his commanders on their security. A soldier comes to inform him that they have surrounded Ashoka. There is a girl with him as well. Kichak vows to kill Ashoka.
Kaurvaki notices a solider heading towards Ashoka from behind. She moves Ashoka. The soldier hurts her. Ashoka angrily slits his throat. Kaurvaki passes out. Ashoka picks her up in his arms and walks away. Kichak finds all the soldiers in the corridor dead. Ashoka reaches a dead end. Right then, someone pulls him. Kichak is unable to find Ashoka.
