Sushim asks everyone how a Dassi-putra (son) can sit on Magadh’s throne. BIndu gets up angrily. Ashoka looks angrily at Sushim. Bindusar slaps Sushim. Charu is shocked and so is everyone else. Ashoka looks hurt / angry. Sushim glares at Ashoka. Bindu tells him that it is enough. A person is right or wrong by his karmas. Samrat should be the one who the citizens trust and love; who they keep their hearts in. I have no doubt about it that it is Ashoka only. I have no doubt that the citizens would be happy to see Ashoka as my successr and Rani Dharma as Rajmata. Charu tries to say something but he interrupts her. there will be no more discussion on this topic. I have made my decision. I, Chandragupta Maurya’s son, Bindusar Maurya, announce Ashoks as my succesoor. Everyone cheers for Ashoka. Helena, Mahamatya, Charu, Siamak and Sushim are stunned whereas everyone else is happy. Bindu announces that Ashoka’s Rajya-Abhishek will happen tomorrow in the court on only. Make preps for it. He walks out of the courtroom. Everyone leaves except the members of royal family.
Sushim looks at his brother angrily. Drupad hugs Ashoka. The member of royal family stands on either sides of Ashoka and Sushim. Dharma looks at both of them quizzically. Drupad leaves to tell his friends followed by Shubhrasi. Helena thinks Ashoka’s victory means Chanakya’s victory. I will never accept it. It is better that I cut your head before you try to sit on our heads. She leaves. Siamak thinks Ashoka hasn’t seen my enmity till now but he will see it now. You will not realise how the person you will trust, backstabs you. Charu thinks to destroy the lives of both Ashoka and Dharma for the harm they have done to her and Sushim. Sushim picks up a sword to attack on Ashoka but Charu holds his hand on time. No, neither this place nor time is right for it. Mahamatya and Charu take him from there.
Ashoka looks at Dharma who leaves from there without a word. Ashoka follows her. The lion appears in the courtroom.
Sushim is bare-chested. He hits himself using a hunter. A guy requests him to stop when Sushim hands over the hunter to him. Hit me with full force. The guy says how can I do so. Sushim slaps him hard. I am not made the Yuvraj but it doesn’t mean that you wont listen to me. The guy hits him but Sushim tells him to hit harder. I will kill you otherwise. The guy obliges.
Ashoka says I did not do it for personal reasons. She knows it too. But the people present there will think against you. They will call you opportunist. He doesn’t mind what others think of him. She takes Bindusar’s name. Your father was disturbed by your request. He is taken aback. She says your father loves you a lot. You should have thought well before making such a request. The place and time was not right. She leaves. Ashoka is in thoughts.
Siamak is angry but Helena warns him not to do any foolishness. She says Ashoka’s request and Bindu accepting it will become the reason of impending trouble. Unani army will soon attack on Magadh. No one will be spared. You will not become Yuvraj but Samrat directly.
Dharma talks to Bindu about his reaction. He says I wanted Ashoka to be made the Yuvraj. He surprised me by asking for this right on his own. This shows that he is sure he is capable to handle the responsibility. I am glad. He asks for some alone time. She leaves.
Dharma notices Charu running frantically towards Sushim’s room. Charu asks Sushim what he is doing. Sushim tells the guy not to stop. She tries to stop him but he pushes her. what will you do now? He snatched all the rights from me. You were all quiet then. He tells the guy to continue. Charu begs him not to do this to her. He refuses to stop. I will destroy this body but wont bend down before that Daasi Putra! She cries. Dharma reaches there and is shocked to see it.
Bindu tells Helena to go if Nana ji is ill. But you will be needed tomorrow when Ashoka’s Rajya-Abhishek will happen. I would like to request you to stay back tomorrow to bless Ashoka. She agrees. I did not like Ashoka demanding to be made the Yuvraj just like that. He has changed a lot since he went to Takshshila. Did you expect it from him? He denies. but changes are bound to happen after what he went to through in Takshshila. It is his confidence and not arrogance. She hopes his belief is right. How can a mother, whose son cheated her, believe anyone? But Magadh’s wish for the throne can change people then what will happen afterwards. He hears some commotion.
Charu tells Dharma to leave from there. Since you have come here everything has gone wrong. She again tries to stop Sushim. Bindu comes there. The guy leaves when Bindu orders him to. He next asks Sushim what he is doing. Sushim replies that he is only trying to hurt his body so much that he cannot bear the pain in his soul. The pain given by you is unbearable! I will have to live with this insult till the last breath of my life. You announced me as Yuvraj but then changed your decision! People will mock me. No one will take me seriously or respect me. It is all because of you! You snatched everything from me in a second. Why did you do it? Why cant you love me the way you love Ashoka? Bindu says you both are equal to me but SUshim refuses to accept it. I am your elder son. I have spent more years with you than Ashoka. Have you ever thought? He passes out. Charu cries seeing his condition. Wake up son. she blames Dharma and Ashoka for it. they both wont be happy ever if anything happens to my son. This is the curse from a mother. Mahamatya suggest postponing Ashoka’s Abhishek till Sushim is better. Radha Gupta says it will only raise questions at Samrat’s decisions. Enemies will make use of it and the citizens will be upset. I can understand Samrat’s pain. Both are his sons only. If Chandragupta Maurya had used his heart then he would have made Justin his successor. He did what was right. Bindu announces that the Abhishek will happen on the said time only. He leaves from the room followed by Shubhrasi. Helena and Charu talk about the impending danger on Dharma and Dharamputra!
Precap: It is the day of Ashoka’s Abhishek. Sushim retracts in shock as he hears the music. Do something Ma. Bindu slaps Ashoka.
