Ashoka shouts at Sushim. Are you blind or a fool? How can you just ride around on a horse when people are around? Could you not see the kid before you and stop? Sushim stops his horse. You will soon know who has come in whose work. This distance isn’t between you and me but between your life and death. He steps down from the horse. Ashoka and Sushim walk towards each other. Sushim hears temple bells ringing. He gets irked. Soldier advises him not to waste time here. We have to reach Ujjaini before night. Sushim tells Ashoka he is lucky. You misbehaved yet this temple and my aim saved you today. You would have to pay it with your life otherwise. He leaves on his horse.
Ashoka is about to go after him when the same man comes there. He advises Ashoka to stop being aggressive now. You saved the boy and as of now your task here is done. If good thing is done at the wrong time then you wont get the desired result at that moment. Ashoka speaks of teaching a lesson to that arrogant guy (Sushim) but the man assures him right time will come when you will punish the ones you want to. Ashoka says you speak like my mom. The man smiles. Well-wishers have likewise thoughts.
The lady of that kid is thankful to Ashoka for saving her son. I couldn’t even thank him. I don’t know who he was and where he came from. Another lady agrees with her. He saved your son and challenged that rogue too. He surely had blessing of Shiv Shambhu. His locket looked special. Kaurvaki hears them. How did that necklace look like? The lady says bright light was emanating from the Shivlinga in his neck. Kaurvaki asks her in which direction he went. The lady guides her. Kaurvaki happily goes in that direction to look for Ashoka.
The man checks Ashoka’s hand. He tells him about the significance of Chakra’s on his fingers. They all show no one can fool you easily; you have strength to gather people together and check everything carefully; you have been blessed with patience, knowledge, sense. He is shocked to realise that Ashoka’s every finger holds a Chakra. God has bestowed you with the power to explain your viewpoint to people and make them listen to you wilfully. I know time is not in your favour as of now. But time will change. You will get what you lost and those who got it will soon lose it. Ashoka leaves from there disinterested.
A man compliments Ashoka on what he did. No one can dare do this to Rajkumar Sushim. Ashoka is shocked to know it was his brother Sushim. He points his finger angrily at that man (the one who predicted about him). You knew this! Ashoka runs from there towards Ujjaini.
Nirankush asks Seth Dhaniram about his whereabouts. Devi says we know nothing. Vit holds his mother tightly. Nirankush walks up to Dharma and Vit. It is good to know that one of your son is atleast afraid of me. Vit murmurs he does not want to die by his smell. Nirankush asks them if Chand only is Ashoka. Everyone is shocked. Nirankush repeats his question. Devi thinks of overhearing Dharma’s convo with Nayak and Acharya RG. This is why Nirankush is after Chand since so many days!
Ashoka and Sushim are on their way to Ujjaini. Ashoka thinks of Helena’s telling him about Chankya’s killers and how he, his brother and his mother were thrown out of Patliputra.
Dharma says Chand and Ashoka are poles apart. Chand cannot be Ashoka and Ashoka cannot be Chand! They are completely opposite to each other. Ashoka loved his principles but my Chand only loves money. Yuvraaj Ashoka loved his people and his parents. Chand does everything against my wish. Ashoka was like the river who gave life to everyone. Chand brings storm in everyone’s life. Chand only wants to accomplish his motto. He can take any way for the same. Nirankush laughs madly. What do I do now? If Chand isn’t Ashoka then what will I say? Chand is also not here! I will die by his hands. What will I tell him when he will come? He is about to come. Dharma asks him who he is talking about. Nirankush says I am talking about devil, the God of death, Rajkumar Sushim! He is known for his barbarity. Dharma is stunned. Nirankush says why you got scared hearing his name. She lies that a brave man like him is scared of him. It is natural for her to be scared of him. Nirankush wonders what he will do now.
Dharma prays for Ashoka’s safety. Don’t let Ashoka and Sushim come face to face till it is the right time.
Ashoka notices Sushim and his soldiers ahead of him. He shouts angrily. I met you after 10 long years! Your death only brought you to me. I cannot let you go like this. There will be some way to reach you. He hears someone holding a competition to tame a mad horse. Ashoka agrees to do it. But I need this horse as a prize. The guys agree. Ashoka tries taming the horse but it pushes him. Ashoka politely calls him his friend asking for help. The horse gives him tough time. Ashoka says sorry to him for misbehaving. You made me realise my mistake. Trust me, friend. I don’t want to hurt you. you were and will be free but I need you now. I need to reach someone right away. You can help me if you want to. I wont force you against your wish. The horse calms down and neighs. Ashoka walks back to him and pats at him. I will call you Garud as you are so fast. I have your support now. I am sure I will get my aim too. He walks out from there victorious.
Everyone hears the sound of a horse neighing. All the citizens run away. Dharma, Devi, Vit and Dhaniram run inside the house. Nirankush is worried of Sushim.
Vit tells his mother he is very much scared. Bhaiya is also not here. Dharma hides him under a bed. She asks Devi and Dhaniram to hide too. They are confused but she requests them to listen to her. They leave. Dharma peaks out of the window. Sushim reaches there just then. She is stunned to see him. Vit peaks at his mother from his hiding place.
Sushim steps down from his horse. He walks towards Seth Dhaniram’s house.
Sushim reaches there just then. Dharma is stunned to see him through the window. Vit peaks at his mother from his hiding place.
Sushim steps down from his horse. He walks towards Seth Dhaniram’s house. Sushim shouts for his brother. I am here. Come out Ashoka. I have come from far. I came to meet you after so many years. Wont you hug me? It’s been 10 years. It is a long time. No day passed when I dint get restless to meet Ashoka. The day has come because of your Nirankush. Why do you make me wait so much? Bring him here. I will give you prize for it. Nirankush wonders how to tell him the one whom he wants to meet isn’t here. Sushim stops him. He is my brother. Only I have the right to call him. Sushim walks towards the main door of the house.
Vit is surprised to see his mother all panicked.
Sushim shouts Ashoka. Everyone looks shocked. Ashoka is on his way home.
Sushim is surprised as there has been no reaction. What happened to him? Devi and her father hide. Sushim asks Ashoka to come out. See the wound you gave me. I haven’t let it heal in these 10 years. This hasn’t let me forget you. It constantly reminds me that I have to take revenge for it. You are my culprit. I have decided your punishment long ago – death! It is the time to put it into practise. I had full faith this time will surely come. The world had accepted you are no more, but I dint. Our chapter cannot end this easily. I knew this. Now that the time has come today, you are playing hide and seek. It doesn’t suit a brave man like you.
Seth Dhaniram cannot understand what’s happening. Why is Rajkumar Sushim here? Why are you (Dharma) hiding from him? Question is why Sushim is in this illusion that Rajkumar Ashoka is alive and is here? Plus where is Chand? Dharma requests him to be quiet for now for God’s sake. Vit wonders who this person is from whom his mother is so scared.
Sushim shouts what happened to you Ashoka. You were the brave fighter of Magadh. Staying hidden like a coward does not suit you. Did you learn it from your Ma? She was so proud of her ideals in your blood. Where did it go now? She used to inspire him and send him to warzone proudly. Why isn’t he out today then? Did you realise your uselessness in these 10 years? I cannot wait anymore. I will come before you if you wont come out.
Seth Dhaniram goes out and greets Sushim. Sushim asks him if he gave shelter to Ashoka. Dhaniram denies. I let Chand and his mother stay here. Sushim laughs hearing it. They both are talented enough to change their names and identity and fool people. Dharma prays to God to save them. Vit recalls his promise to Ashoka that he will take care of their Ma and house in his absence. He tries to go out but Dharma stops him. She gives him Ashoka’s swear. It will all happen at per God’s will now.
Dharma and Vit turn to go when a lady pats at her shoulder. She is wearing identical clothes like Dharma and her kid is dressed just like Vit. She says not you but your shadow will go out now. Acharya RG comes there. It is my duty to save the saviour (and his family) of the dream of united India. Devi looks at them in confusion.
The lady goes out with her son. Nirankush gets excited. Sushim says I have been waiting for this day since so long. Wont you show me your face and bless this son? Nayak looks at them. The lady removes the veil from her face. It turns out to be someone else. Nirankush, Seth Dhaniram looks shocked. The lady calls herself Chand’s mother. I apologize to you for his misdeeds. Nirankush’s assistant calls her a liar. This woman is someone else. You can ask Nirankush if you don’t believe me. Nirankush lies before Sushim to save himself. Dhaniram wonders what happened to Nirankush. The assistant is sure Chand ran away so Nirankush is lying. Sushim demands to meet Chand. Some other guy comes out. Sushim believes them. Chand can be the one who does not melt hearing someone speak against his mother but Ashoka will not do so! Assistant asks him to come to Ganesha temple with him. I will prove you that I am not lying. Sushim is panicked hearing the name of Lord and temple. He gets the assistant arrested. Dharma looks relieved. She thanks Lord for saving them today.
Kaurvaki wonders why all her attempts to meet him are failing. The man (one who keeps predicting) says you are going to meet him as per destiny. We should only focus on our karma instead of hoping for an outcome. It will depend on your karma. One should go with the wind in the same direction to get what you want. The ones who try to go against it fail. Kaurvaki realises that the man hints at Ujjaini. Spy hinted at the same. I will go there.
Sushim heads back. Horse stops in his way. Ashoka tries to make Garud understand.
Dhaniram demands to know what’s happening. Who all are you? Devi recalls Ashoka and Dharma’s angry convo and how she saw these people earlier also. I already knew there is something wrong. Dhaniram says I don’t understand why so many people lied. Nirankush wont stay quiet. He has some plan. What’s the truth? Is chand Rajkumar Ashoka in reality?
Ashoka gets to know that Sushim has left. I lost a chance to meet him again.
Acharya RG pays money to Dhaniram. Ashoka can never be Chand and vice versa. Dhaniram wants to know why they lied. Acharya RG suggests him to not know too much. It can create problems for you only. Devi speaks in Chand’s favour. He has never tried to hurt anyone. it is our duty now to help them. Dhaniram is worried that they can get in problem because of them. They hear a horse’s sound. Vit is glad to see Ashoka. Dharma asks him not to tell his brother what happened here a while ago. Vit nods.
