People cheer for Sushim. Charu looks content. Mahamatya says the next fight between Bawandar and Chakravarti Chand. He has defeated Mallu and has refused to bow his head before Samrat yet people like him. People begin to cheer for Chand before Mahamatya can even complete the sentence. Ashoka walks in. Sushim looks at him angrily. Both the brothers look at each other. Sushim recognises him to the same guy who taunted him in Kumbha Mela. They run towards each other with determination and hit each other on chests. Ashoka falls down because of the impact. It turns out to be Sushim’s imagination.
Charu is sure it isn’t Chakravarti Chand but Dharma’s son Ashoka. My eyes know him well. He has the same determination, willpower and confidence. Ashoka looks at Charu. He remembers how he accused her to using black magic to kill his mother. He next looks at Sushim. The fight begins. Ashoka beats Bawandar.
Bindu remarks that Chand is extremely swift in his actions. It is remarkable! Nobody stops cheering for Chand. Siamak comes there as well. He thinks only Ashoka can bring a smile on Bindu’s face. Ashoka looks more determined than before. Ashoka wins the competition. Sushim says he still hasn’t given up on his habit of becoming people’s favourite. Only a useless person can make place for himself in the hearts of useless people.
Jagannath halts the troops to rest for a while. Jagannath makes Bela check Kaurvaki. Bela says she is still unconscious. Jagannath says she will be away from Ashoka for forever by tomorrow.
Helena says earth will be coloured red with blood now. Mountains will bump into each other. What else is going to happen now when Ashoka and Sushim will come face to face!
Sushim wins over another competitor.
Helena places the toys in the miniature ring. What will the outcome of two great fighters standing against each other?
Mahamatya says Sushim and Chakravarti Chand will fight tomorrow. Sushim has never spared the life of any of his competitiors whereas Chand has let all his competitiors live. Who will win the title of Magadh’s Maha Yodha will be decided tomorrow.
Helena says the decision wont happen tomorrow. It was done long ago. Maurya’s kids’ will fight. The war will be scary. How will he spare his Guru’s killer? Siamak will win the fight between two lions! She hits both Sushim and Ashoka’s miniature and places Siamak’s doll on the throne.
Acharya says it will be difficult to figure out what will happen tomorrow. Sushim’s powers are mayavi. He is way more powerful than an ordinary human being. Nayak is sure bad can win over good. Ashoka has dharma and truth on his side. He has won always with it. The fire inside him will give him enough power to fight with Sushim. He has finally got a chance to take revenge for his Guru’s death and for his mother’s disrespect. Acharya RG says this fight has to be stopped. Only Devi Dharma can stop it. Go to her and bring her here right away. Nayak says we wanted Ashoka and Sushim to come face to face only. Acharya RG says this time isn’t right. We have to think of the bigger thing, our dream of united India. We have to stop the Maha Sangram through Devi Dharma. Nayak nods and leaves.
Jagannath gets to know that Chand is really powerful. He isn’t defeated as of now. He only is believed to be Ashoka. He is still following his rules and isn’t killing anyone. No one is able to verify it but everyone believes that it can only be Ashoka. Jagannath remarks it means Kaurvaki was right. Ashoka did not die.
Acharya asks Acharya RG what his motive is. Acharya RG dint want Ashoka and Sushim to fight. Devi Dharma does not want Ashoka to go back to patliputra till his anger calms down. She does not realise that it wont happen until he is there. He has to come now as he is needed there. I allowed him to be here as it was important for his destiny. Devi Dharma wouldn’t have let him do it so this competition helped. We have to be alert till she is here. Ashoka might have decided to wait till tomorrow to come face to face with Sushim but I am sure he wont wait. He will try his best to harm Ashoka.
Bela offers water to Kaurvaki. Kaurvaki understands her and her father’s plan. She throws the glass away in anger. Bela says I was scared. Kaurvaki says you could have given me poison instead. You have hurt me so badly by doing this. I couldn’t imagine you doing this to me ever. My pain, my yearning was known to you more than my mother. You knew about my tapasya coming true yet you cheated me. I thought of you as my sister. Why did you take revenge from me? What for? What was lacking in my love that you acted like my enemy! I lost the chance to meet Ashoka and also lost my beloved friend for life. Trust is gained in years but it only takes a second, just an act to break it. I can forgive you for what you did but I wont trust you ever again. Stay away from me and don’t come before my eyes. Bela agrees. I will go away from you but give me a chance to rectify my mistake. Kaurvaki looks at her.
Ashoka is eating food in his room. Acharya stands next to him. Ashoka says this only reminds me how simple living and high thinking is good for life. Salt is missing. Acharya keeps the bowl of salt closer to his plate. Ashoka thanks him. Ashoka asks for something once again. Acharya goes to get it. Ashoka remarks that the importance of food cooked by mother is understood only when you are away from home. There is a knock at the door. Ashoka finds Sushim standing at the door. Sushim and Ashoka look at each other.
Sushim says would you let me stand here only or call me inside brother. Ashoka moves aside. Sushim walks in and looks at the plate of food. Who will say that the Maha Yodha and heir of Magadh, holding Chanragupta Maurya’s sword will come down to this one day! Anyways, useless people will live like one. Ashoka tells him to come straight to the point. Sushim appreciates it. You still talk to the point. He claps after which a few servants walk in. I have brought this nutritious food for you so you can stand before me for a while tomorrow in the ring. I wont enjoy it if the wait of 10 years will end in a few minutes only. I want to enjoy killing you. My thirst wont be quenched otherwise. I want to kill you but I want to enjoy it. Ashoka says this has been your problem since always. You waste your energy in useless stuff. Sushim advises him to eat this stuff. It will give you energy. I knew that you like food made with milk and that is vegetarian. I have brought it all for you. They will keep you active tomorrow. It is very much needed. The servants keep the food down and leave. Ashoka walks closer. So you came to feed your Kaal. It is understandable if someone makes a mistake once but he is called a fool if he repeats it again and again. You are still the same way today. You mistake your enemy to be weak. I will respect this food if it is your wish. I will surely eat it.
Ashoka sits down to eat. He prays first of all while Sushim looks on. Ashoka burps in the end. Sushim says you prayed before eating. Pray again to your God that you are able to stand before your brother tomorrow. Don’t be worried if you cannot sleep tonight because of stress as I will make you sleep for forever tomorrow. You will come face to face with such a Shakti tomorrow that you wont be able to withstand it. Ashoka replies that Shakti is not in body but heart and determination. Your motto is nothing before mine. You are weak here.
Kaurvaki says I will go but what about you. Bela says we have done it in the past also. Kaurvaki says father forgave in the past as we were kids and Ma told him so. He can do so much against me. He can harm you too. Bela tells her not to worry about her. I will go far away as soon as I get a chance. Kaurvaki hugs her. I feel something is going to go wrong. Bela tells her not to think like that. End the wait of 10 years finally! Kaurvaki leaves.
Dharma is making Vit eat food when they hear a knock at the door. Dharma is surprised to see Nayak at this hour. He takes Ashoka’s name which worries her. What happened to Ashoka? He shares that the competition for which Ashoka has gone will bring him face to face with Sushim in the last round. Dharma is stunned. He says no one but you can stop this from happening. You will have to come with me. Vit asks his mother what happened. Dharma and Vit go with Nayak. Nayak thinks forgive me Rani Dharma. We have no other option but you to fulfil the dream of united India and to stop Ashoka. Dharma says we have to reach Nalanda before sunrise. It will be a big problem if Ashoka and Sushim come face to face.
Kaurvaki has covered her face and is going out of the camp site when Jagannath stops her. Where are you headed to at this hour? How is Kaurvaki? Kaurvaki replies that she got upset with me. She has dismissed me from my duties. She does not want to see my face and has banished me so I am leaving. He says where you will go at this hour. She replies that it will be up to Shiv Shambhu. He asks her why she has covered her face. Bela sees them. Jagannath hears some sound and rushes to ask his soldiers to tighten the security. Bela pours kerosene over her head. Forgive me for hiding another truth from you Rajkumari ji. Rajkumar Ashoka and Rajkumari Kaurvaki were separated in the past but will be united again. You will have to do it Mahadev. Don’t let my sacrifice go in vain. She picks up a diya. Jagannath tells his soldiers that they will leave as soon as sun comes out. He hears shouts and is shocked to see the room on fire. He breaks down. How could you punish your father this way! What did you do daughter! Soldiers hold him.
Dharma tells Nayak to increase speed. We have to reach there before Ashoka goes for the fight.
Ashoka is praying.
Charu says everything has happened as per our plan till now. Ashoka is walking in the mouth of death on his own. I am eager to see you killing Ashoka with your hands now. Magadh’s throne will be yours afterwards. She does his tilak with black ash.
Acharya RG does Ashoka’s tilak. Ashoka touches his feet to seek his blessings. Acharya RG says I am sure you will listen to your heart. Truth will win!
Everyone gathers to see the fight. Another Acharya (who has come to see the fight) remarks that people are so excited. It reminds of the fight between Rajkumar SUshim and Rajkumar Ashoka in the past. Some other Acharya agrees with him. The first Acharya says no one can determine who will emerge victorious out of Rajkumar Sushim and the ordinary Chand but it will be memorable for sure.
The cart gets stuck. Nayak gets down to pull it out safely.
Bindu holds a lady who was about to fall. Be careful Maate! She nods quietly. Bindu and Charu head inside. It is Helena. Bindu asks SIamak when he came. Bindu says you came late but you did. I have seen both my sons together after so long.
Mahamatya announces the fight between Sushim and Chakravarti Chand. Helena stands in the group and looks at both the contenders. Sushim and Ashoka stand face to face. Ashoka touches dirt on his head before starting the fight. Jai Janani!
