Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 28th December 2015 Written Episode
Dharma is shocked to see a lizard jumping out of her jewellery box. A daasi points out that it is a bad sign. It can hint at someone’s expected death too.
Ashoka covers his face with a shawl. I have promised Som to get him food. I will look for Sudama afterwards only. Ashoka drops food in shock as he finds Som dead. The house is completely burnt down. Tears roll down his eyes. He thinks of the family. Som’s father calls out for Ashoka. Ashoka rushes to his side. The guy says the soldiers are around only. He dies before completing his sentence. Ashoka vows not to spare whoever has done this to the family! He angrily walks out of the house.
The commander enquires the same man (who Ashoka had met on his arrival at Takshshila) about the kid (Ashoka). He is not from Takshshila. The man asks him how they will recognize kids from their faces. The commander hits him. Soldiers tell him not to get into an argument with a beggar. The man laughs hearing it. I am a beggar! The soldiers catch hold of Ashoka as he tries to walk up to the commander. The man is tensed to see Ashoka getting caught. The commander asks Ashoka who he is. Ashoka accepts that he is the one who threw the stone at the soldier. He has dropped his gold coin at Som’s house by mistake. The soldiers lock Ashoka in a trunk and take him with them. Ashoka tries to look for a way out.
Charu is irked with Dharma for pretending to be so good and caring before the ladies. She acts so much before everyone. I lost my son yet I stand strong before everyone! Plus her growing closeness with Samrat is troubling me. I don’t know why I listened to Rajmata. I would have taken care of Dharma and her unborn son by now otherwise! Mahamatya shares his doubt on Rajmata’s intentions. Her aim is not to see Sushim on the throne. Charu deduces that Helena is not their friend then. Mahamatya suggests keeping their plans to themselves. She can use them against Sushim in future. Charu says she still knows enough of our secrets. She might be planning something to hurt Sushim. Mahamatya wants to first find out why Rajmata is supporting Siamak so much. We will then plan our next plan.
Amatya writes a letter to Helena. I am taking time to put my plan into action. It is difficult to reach Kichak. I made good plan today. it will be my first move towards our plan. Kaurvaki notices him writing a letter. Who is he writing it to? Why he looks so tensed? His bag falls. Gold coins fall down. He picks them up hastily. Kaurvaki hides when he looks in her direction. She wonders why he is not calm like other monks. Why do I sense something odd about him? She recalls his angry replies to her on ship when they were in trouble. Amatya goes out with the letter. Meanwhile, Kaurvaki checks his bag. A monk is carrying so many gold coins? She takes one with her and keeps the bag back in its place. I know I am doing wrong but I need it to fulfil my mission. I find this man wrong, deceitful. It isn’t wrong to do wrong with wrong people. She turns and finds Anand standing there.
Kichak is enjoying his leisure time. His sister asks the soldier what he is doing here. He shares that the commander is bringing a kid here. She dismisses him. I should see if it is the same kid who shook the confidence of Kichak!
Anand advises Kaurvaki not to give way to negativity. We become what we think. She says I wouldn’t have done it if I had a choice. I am not doing it being selfish. My mission is big. He points out that if there is guilt then it is wrong. There is a reaction to everything we do. I wont stop you though! He leaves from there.
The same man has blocked the way of the commander using some cows. The soldiers get busy clearing their way. Ashoka keeps trying to get out of the box but in vain.
Charu throws water on Sushim to wake him up. You must have heard the story of rabbit and turtle. You are too overconfident about your win. Siamak is slowly progressing towards his aim. He is making every possible attempt to fill in Ashoka’s place. Sushim refuses to let it happen.
Kichak’s sister pulls the commander to a corner. They are both in love with each other it seems. A soldier walks past so they compose themselves. They go out to check on the kid. The box is empty. Ashoka had escaped from there as soon as he got a chance. Kichak’s sister taunts the commander. He vows to bring the kid before Kichak!
Precap: The commander shows the gold coin bearing Magadh’s stamp on it to Kichak. Kichak is sure someone has come here from Magadh. Only Ashoka could be carrying it. Now we have to seek help from that person. Only he can help us now!
