Once there was a King 21 February 2022: Gayatri tells Rana Ji that she trusts him. Rana Ji says when there is trust, there is space for any but. Kunwar ji and Kokilla come and asks Raaj Mata where is Rana ji. Raaj Mata says he has gone for a Yatra to ask some mind for Kokilla. Kunwar Ji tells Raaj Mata to calm down, he stands with Rana Ji.
A servant comes to Raaj Mata saying there is an issue, an important one. He says they found Yashoda’s dead body in the lake nearby. Kokilla hiccups. Raaj Mata asks where the dead body is, Kunwar Ji and Kokilla exchange looks and follow. Raaj Mata removes the cloth and finds an injury on the neck of Yashoda. She says this isn’t possible, Yashoda had gone to her village as her niece already told her. Kunwar Ji says Yashoda’s relatives didn’t even do her coronation but put her body in the lake, now they will do her coronation with full royal rituals as she was loyal to Bari Rani maa. Raaj Mata says Yashoda hasn’t died, she was killed as there is an injury on her neck. She sends servants to find Yashoda’s husband and daughter.
Kokilla comes to her room, worried about what will happen. She says she doesn’t want to die, they must run away. She says they are already unsure about Rana Ji’s fight. Kunwar Ji says they will find their well in this fight even.
The servant comes to tell Raaj Mata that in Yashoda’s village, but she has no niece. Raaj Mata says that they must find out who was that niece. Raaj Mata comes and tells Kunwar ji that servants just told her Yashoda has no niece then which of her nieces had he brought her to. Kunwar ji says he didn’t bring anyone to her. Raaj Mata asks why she feels as if he is hiding something from her. Kunwar ji asks if she doesn’t trust him. Kunwar ji asks if she has any proof that he had brought that girl in the palace, there can’t be proof as a lie has no proof and no basis. He says he wants to show to Raaj Mata how much love and loyalty he has for her. Raaj Mata says she will even open her chests to see how much loyalty he has for her, Yashoda has been killed and there must be proof for this.
In the morning, Avdesh bathes with milk and lights fire on his hand. He says he doesn’t pray anything but fire. He tells death when it has to come to him or not. The one who can bear fire’s bruise, how can Indravadhan bear his injury?
Raaj Mata and Rana ji pray, Raaj Mata hands him the sword and tells Rana ji this is the respect and trust of Amirkot. This is the inherited sword, with the same, his great grandfather kept the foundation of Amirkot. Rana ji takes her blessings. Gayatri comes with pooja thaal, Rana ji says that when there is no trust, aarti can’t do anything. Raaj Mata says he can’t stop the Rani of Amirkot from fulfilling her belief. Rana ji says he won’t stop anyone from fulfilling their rights. Gayatri does the pooja, she ties a thread on his hand and says if bound with trust it becomes unbreakable. It will remind him that for her protection, he must return. Rana ji says today he won’t fight to defeat the enemy but to win the trust of his Rani. He leaves.
The elder man prepares Avdesh, putting on all his gold jewelry in his hands. He is ready to fight, stands up determined curtly.
Raaj Mata stops Gayatri that a Rajputani doesn’t go to the war ground with her husband, but stays back and prays for his victory. Gayatri says what if….
