Rana ji stood by the lake they had come on a picnic for. Sulkshna comes to him and says Bari rani maa told her that this is the place they had first met, she tries to remember a tree. Rana ji says the tree got destroyed in a storm. Sulakshna asks Rana ji what happened at their first meeting, was he quiet like this or she was shyer. Gayatri calls them for food, Rana ji asks Gayatri to sit with them for lunch and offers her a chair as well.
Sulakshna asks Gayatri to tell her something about Rana ji as she has lost her memory. Gayatri says it isn’t easy to understand Rana ji, he seems to be rude, tough and stubborn. She also thought him to be tough and angry at the beginning but from inside he is lovable and kindhearted. Sulakshna says that this way Rana ji himself couldn’t have praised himself. She asks Gayatri about her husband. Gayatri says she has told her about Rana ji, this means she has also told her about her husband. She takes a leave. Rana ji stands up for her.
Gayatri comes at the bank of the river. Rana ji watches her standing alone. Sulakshna asks him to begin the food. Rana ji takes a leave from her and goes to Gayatri. Gayatri asks why he brought her here, to see when Rana ji and Sulakshna met. Rana ji says he wanted to show her that there is no cover between them, if she liked it if he had left her in the palace. Gayatri says she dislikes being here. Rana ji says that she knows him well, not Rana ji but Indravadhan. He says that she knows he only wants a partner and not a number of Raani’s. Sulakshna heads towards them. Gayatri says that right now he has two wives, she has never seen such a ritual in her house. Right now, either she is his second wife right now or Sulakshna is, he must decide. Sulakshna reaches nearer and asks to go as it is quite late. Gayatri says it is really late, they must go.
At night, Bari Raani maa brings Rana ji a letter from British govt. Bari Raani maa asks him to read by himself. He is curt that Wilkinsons want crown on Sulakshna’s head as she has returned. He asks who they to take the decisions of his life are. Bari Rani maa says he has to take the decision himself but the truth is that Sulakshna is not his first wife but also the Rani of Amirkot. She says it must be a difficult decision but not every decision is easy in life. Gayatri head this converstation.
Gayatri was walking with her suitcase in the corridor. Rana ji asks her to stop. She keeps her suitcase down, both run and hug each other.
Gayatri cries, Rana ji is hurt too. She asks Rana ji to let her go. She hugs him again. Sulakshna watches this. She goes through the corridor and reach a room where a man sat with mortar and pestle. She tells the man to remove her earrings they are really itchy. The man says this isn’t time yet, she tells him to remove it. She shouts at him to remove it, he stares at her. She asks if he really loves Rani Sulakshna? The man looks closely and removes a mask off the face. He hands the mask to her. She smiles watching the mask of Sulakshna’s face. She throws the mask away and says Rani Sulakshna has left while Rimjhim is here. She tells the man not to give her any lectures any more, as the veiled lady in enough for her to give lessons.
The veiled lady come there and asks if she wants beaten up by stick as well? She says that tomorrow there is going to be a drama, she will get the crown and become a Rani. Rimjhim says if she becomes Rani tomorrow, can she wander freely or still this old man will be there behind her. She cheers.
