Once there was a King 16 February 2022: Bari Rani maa says to Rana Ji that he will have to kill her to celebrate his victory. She tells him to pick his sword up, she is standing bare in front of him. Rana ji asks her to stop it. Bari Rani maa says she can’t do anything to him, a Raja must have fire in his eyes not tears. If he gets soft with his enemy, he will be killed. His good will get him defeated one day. Rana ji says had she told him once that she did it all in rage he would have forgiven her, but she isn’t worth forgiveness.
Gayatri says he must forgive her, he can’t kill anyone. Rana ji says this is the goodness that she is calling his weakness, it is a strength and he will always win. He says he will always be successful and he promises that she will live to see all his successes. He says I, Rana Indravadhan Singh Dev being Raja of Amirkot consider Bari Rani maa as the murderer of Sulakshna and for that, she is given a lifetime jail in Rangoon, she will never enter Amirkot and she won’t meet any of her relatives. She never loved her relatives, now she might learn that this throne and crown is nothing in front of true relations. He tells the guards to take her. Bari Rani maa says to Rana ji that he has done a big mistake by leaving her alive, this is a dark night of his life. The story of Raja and Rani never ends. This palace has the devil in its bricks, there is greed in the hearts of relatives here and the throne requires sacrifice, he will have to give this sacrifice. Bari Rani Ma leaves.
Gayatri prays in the temple for the safety of her family. Rana ji comes in and kneels down. She asks what he is doing. He says he is apologizing. She tells him to get up, what if someone sees this. Rana ji says he didn’t trust her that is his mistake. A sinner isn’t the one who doesn’t show the wrong path, but the one that goes on it as well. He held a hand on her as well. Gayatri tells him to forget about it. Rana ji says that the bruises might go away but they leave their marks. She must forgive him. She says he is forgiven. He says not like this, she must also hold a hand on him.
Swarna watched her bleeding arm. She remembers it was because Laksh had held it tight. Cheetah comes there and tells her to bandage it. He holds her arm. She asks how he dares touch her without her permission. He asks if he must touch her. She jerks him away and asks him to go out. Cheetah takes the first aid box from the cupboard, she denies getting it bandaged. Cheetah anyway holds her hand and cleans her injury. Swarna keeps on looking at him. Yashoda watches this, she wonders what going is on between Swarna and this stranger, and she must do something.
Gayatri asks Rana ji if he has gone crazy. She can’t hold a hand on him. Rana ji says she is the daughter of a businessman but is weak in calculations. She asks if he is sure. He says he is Rajput. She rubs her hands, takes off her rings.
Rana ji watches her and asks what she is doing. She says she is the daughter of a businessman, she will return him everything along with interest. He shuts his eyes, she smiles and says this is the decision of Rani Gayatri that he won’t get a punishment. This is a punishment for him. He smiles.
Cheetah tells Swarna that his mother always scolded him that he never feels pain while fighting but only while getting on medicine. She asks if he was the same since childhood. He says he was more mischievous, sometimes he would free someone’s buffalo or would steal the clothes of bathing people near the river. He tells her that there was an old man, he used to drag his Dhoti. Swarna laughs. Laksh comes into the room. Swarna takes her hand from Cheetah’s off. Laksh asks her to carry on in front of him. Cheetah says it would be better Laksh leaves right now. Laksh asks how dare he tell him when to enter his room and when not.
Kunwar ji was in his room, Kokilla comes to him and asks what the need to twist his mustache is. She says she went to pray for an heir for two days and here, Bari Rani maa was sent to Rangoon. Had her name be taken Rana ji would also have sent them to Rangoon. Kunwar ji shows her a letter, it was from Bari Rani maa who said that she is really proud of his cleverness today, he did good by not taking her side today. Gayatri must be thinking that she will now live peacefully in the palace but she is unaware that they are there in the palace behind Bari Rani maa. She tells Kunwar ji to defeat Rana ji and Gayatri in any possible way. Kokilla asks what they will do now. Kunwar ji says that till today they fought for this crown, today they will fight for respect of their mother. They will go to any extent.
Laksh holds a knife and attacks on Cheetah, but he holds Laksh’s hand. Swarna tells them to stop, Cheetah says that today he will teach Laksh how a woman is respected. Swarna holds the knife from the floor, she says this is all because of her so she will end it here. She cuts her wrist.
