He is about to go when she holds his necklace. He tells her he isn’t going anywhere. I am here only near you. He makes her drink kaadha but she does not drink it. Why don’t you drink now? You were troubling me in the jungle asking for food and water. You are all quiet now. Try again. You have to drink Kaadha. I understand it isn’t the sweetest one but you will have to drink it. It will make you strong to fight with me, to taunt me. Let’s try once again. She drinks it this time. He smiles. You will be fine soon with the medicine given by Ma.

Next morning, Ashoka and Kaurvaki seem to have fallen asleep in the same position. Devi comes there. She smiles seeing them thus. She thinks to leave when Ashoka wakes up hearing the sound of her anklets. He says Devi. She stops in her tracks but looks down. Ashoka makes Kaurvaki lie back down on the bed. Ashoka thanks Devi. I am indebted to you. She says I wouldn’t have forgiven myself all life if I had kept quiet after knowing everything. He asks for a favour. No one should know that I was here all night with Kaurvaki. It is already difficult for me. Promise me it will be a secret. Dharma is headed to that room. Ashoka says you don’t understand someone’s importance till you are together. You are so generous, loving. Whoever marries you will be really lucky. They both see Dharma at the door. She is curious to see Ashoka there. Were you here all night? Devi declines. He just came. She asks something to Devi when Ashoka replies to her. Dharma says I ask one of you while the other answers. Devi covers up saying I just told him everything. Ashoka asks about Padmavati’s (Kaurvaki’s) recovery. She replies that the situation hints at positive recovery only. Ashoka is relieved. Dharma asks Ashoka why she feels he is hiding something from her. Who is Rajkumari Padmavati? Why are you so concerned for her? He lies that it is his duty. All the princesses kept fast for the prince’s only. Acharya RG tells Ashoka that he did the way he wanted him to. Ashoka goes with him. Dharma is sure Ashoka, Padmavati and Devi are hiding something from her. What is it?
Uttar’s dead body is brought outside. A lot many people from of Magadh are gathered there. Sushim, Siamak and Mahamatya come as well. They are stunned to see Uttar’s dead body hanging openly. Ashoka says this dead man is your culprit. He is Magadh’s culprit. He has cheated you, stolen money from you. He has tried to cheat you and magadh. We have recovered the money. Samrat has freed Magadh this year from taxes for the very same reason. It wasn’t enough though. You had lost trust on Magadh’s security system. It was important to build that trust again in all of you. This is why Magadh’s enemy Gondna is hanging dead before you. It is a sign to tell you that none of you should be scared of anything. Anyone who tries to harm motherland, or insult it will meet the same fate. He will be explained in the same language only. We will answer everyone in the language they understand! A soldier pours kerosene over Uttar’s body shocking Siamak, Mahamatya and Sushim. Uttar’s body is set afire. Ashoka tells everyone not to be scared of anyone after today. Magadh is strong enough to tackle its enemies. Everyone cheers for Ashoka.
Sushim, Siamak and Mahamatya walk up to Ashoka. Sushim compliments his plan. Someone should learnt it from you how to make people cheer for you. Ashoka says you have to learn a lot from your deeds. Siamak seconds SUshim. Ashoka says you are right. You and I know the truth. Truth is,t his person isn’t Gondna but Gondna’s supporter, Uttar. Only we know it, not the citizens. They know what they had to. They don’t have to be scared of any Gondna anymore. Look at them. This was the motive of this drama – to end the fear of Gondna from their faces. Gondna tax wont be required now. Gondna and its supporters should be scared now as their downfall has begun. The day I find that woman, she will be punished for being the biggest enemy of my motherland. She would have never imagined it. My first step towards my Guru’s dream of unsuited India has begun. He leaves. Sushim points out that Ashoka knows Gondna is a woman. Siamak wonders if he came to know who that woman is.
Siamak, Sushim, Charu and Mahamatya come to meet Helena. She angrily hits at something. Sushim asks her what this means. She says it will start now. It will happen when Ashoka will unveil my face as Gondna and you will be proved my supporters. Sushim tells her to calm down. Ashoka only has come to know that Gondna is a woman. Helena doubts that Ashoka would have seen her face. It is destined. He wont spare anyone. Siamak is in disbelief. You say so? You took him down. We have always been successful. Our biggest success was Ashoka’s Guru’s death. We got Ashoka out of Magadh. Helena adds that they never won over Ashoka. He came back like some immortal bird every time. He came back all the more powerful this time. This time he isn’t the Ashoka who we can trap in our moves. Sushim nods. Ashoka isn’t kid anymore and neither is this game between kids. Siamak asks him not to scare them by saying all this. We have to think of our next move. Sushim says I know it already. He tells Helena she will be moved to a safer place soon.
Ashoka has made a list of traitors (Gondna) and the people (Sushim, Mahamatya, Siamak and Charu) who killed his Guru. They are a hindrance in his dream. It is my own family. imagine giving your state a safe status and you have to fight with your own family. Acharya RG calls it his destiny. Ashoka is sure they both cannot operate only. I have to make the family weak to get Gondna. The only link is Nirankush. We have to catch him to catch Gondna.
Sushim tells Helena Ashoka can only think of his connection with Gondna but he can never imagine that the dead Rajmata can be alive. If he cannot reach you then how will he reach us? Helena says he will not take much time if he gets on it. Sushim nods. I know he will do every possible thing to look for Gondna. He will never look for Gondna in our palace and my room.
Precap: Charu asks SUshim about Nirankush. You have thought well about Rajmata. She can be safe this way but what about Niranksuh. Sushim plans to send Nirankush to Virat. Once Ashoka reaches him then his failure / death is certain.
