She gets up and says i want to choose other player myself jalal gives her permission. She says hindus mughals will play now. And i want jodha to play with me. Jalal says i’ll be happy with my both wives playing. Jodha thinks if ruks win then dont know what she will ask from jalal.
maham anga, bhagwan das, are stunned as she gets up to play. Jalal is happy that at last jo would be shown her place.
Jodha enters the centre stage and Ruks wants to know of she dared to take up the challenge or chicken out and thinks Jodha would never give up Neither in game or in war i’ve to play well. Ruks tells jodha to begin the game as She being younger Jodha answer back in game it is not age but chaal(trick) that matters but accepts to play the first move on her insistance. The game goes on and Initially jodha seems to be loosing and Ruks says her badshah(king) was now cornered. Bharmal, mynawati, maan singh, all look proudly at Jodha as they play on but then worry on their faces becomes evident as Jo begins to loose ruks gets up and says your game is over and is leaving all looks on.
Jodha stops her and says game is still on and in try to make me loose you yourself has lost. In will to make me loose you made your king insecure and throws her king out from chess table bharmal smiles while jalal is shocked how it could be possible. Ruks leaves angrily. Jodha is also jalal calls her and gives her gift but she denies accepting it saying with blessing of my parents i played this game just as game and didnt want any wish to be completed. I played it for king jalal looks at her stunned. She goes and sit back to her place. Jalal stands up.
ruks is taking puffs from hookah and is fuming hoshiyar says you lost for once not a big deal. She throws hookah on her head and she gets hurt. Ruks says remember not to taunt me. Jalal come and sees ruks coughing while taking puffs. He gives her water and says this much aggression. She says i am sad because i couldn’t fulfill your wish. You wanted to see her defeated aren’t you sad. Jalal says i am but i will not show because khan baba told me to never show worry after losing and to always celebrate victory. And you feel elated when you get win from the one who once made you loose. He sits down to puff hookah. She says jodha also denied wish granted by you aren’t you angry he says i’ll make her take this wish from me but it will be me who will decide the wish.
jalal is in his open court Diwaan e aam ..When some prisoners are brought to him
Man complains to him they are being forced to change their religion . man is accused of being rude to the emperor and is ordered imprisonment but man says i pay my every tax and do my own job but soldiers take him away . His wife come to front and says you married a hindu princess didn’t force her to change religion. Jalal gets up from his place and says how dare to question me . You have done mistake by raising question on me and your punishment is that you will do work day and night in palace in prison and people will listen to your screams. Soldiers takes his wife . Jodha says that they came to get justice and what he did with them he didn’t even pardoned the small kid She decides Jalal is cruel and heartless.. Ruks calls to jodha and Ruks tells Jodha that they were from different region and the people from outside deserve this behavior while Jodha is fuming with rage and leaves in halt. Jalal is about to leave when the kid of parents says whats my punishment.
Jalal goes to him that go to your home. He says your soldiers took our home and cow away from us thats why we came here to get justice from king but you took away my parents. He ask what should i do now jalal remembers the past when in childhood his uncle(father’s brother) said that your father humayun took throne from me i’ll not leave you and is about to cut him when his wife saved jalal by saying he is a kid whats its fault. He then remembers once he said to khan baba i am is remembering my parents so baba said they are hiding somewhere but i am with you. He then remembers how once in childhood maham said i am here for jalal i am his mother. Jalal comes to present and hugs that child and says leave his parents from prison and to give them there everything adham tries to interrupt jalal shouts and says i know the importance of parents in ones life and may be he get victory over the world but remains alone in life. He says i was lucky enough to get khan baba and maham anga. He orders to tell his parents that the man to God has pardoned them. ruks is also angry seeing soft side of jalal.
Jodha comes running to Kanha and complain to him about inhuman Jalal and the injustice in his court. Ruks on the other side is furious when she learns about jalal’s changed decision about the prisoners. Ruks is taunted by other harem inmates for losing to Jodha, Ruks admonishes them And warns them of dire consequences if they leak the information of her defeat to Jodha or to anyone.
Bharmal is worrying for Amer and ask Jalal that he wishes to return back to his people now. he seeks Jalal’s permission but Jalal assures the King that Amer will now never be in danger since it was now under the cover of Mughul emperor and that Every one would be friendly.
In her room Jodha is shedding tears that her parents are returning She was relieved she would not have to fake a smile before them bit was sad that she would now be tortured by Jalal again when Menawati comes to Jodha’s room to find her weeping. Rani tells Jodha that she is returning to Amer And taking Moti bai along with her since Moti bai had failed in her duties . This news about Moti bai surprises Jodha . She is told by Menawati that moti had the duty of concealing her tears from every one And she had failed there. Menawati wipes jodha’s tears ..
menawati says to jodha what you think is it easy to be a queen no. Good fact is that everybody follows you but you can’t follow your heart. It doesn’t matter whether queen is of amer or mughals you have follow rules. I am fulfilling my responsibility in amer you do it here jodha listens intently. Younger sister comes and jodha hug her all have a emotional moment. Mena is teary eyed.
servant comes to jalal and shows him the letter and says jodha denied accepting it. Now jodha is in his room. Jalal says don’t play with my temperament why you always go against me jodha says which i don’t want i don’t take and jalal says i don’t take back which i grant to someone. Jodha says you can’t give me anything jalal says enough jodha says according to this letter you will grant me a wish in my life but i think you can’t give anything to anyone. You took away the parents of that innocent child who came for justice. Didn’t thought about his future you did injustice and now granting me wish. Jalal comes closer holds her hand and says half information is invalid i don’t want to force you if i wanted i could have forced you to take wish in front of your parents and says to respect the king leaves her hand and goes away jodha is fuming.
jodha holds her hand as it pains and looks on with anger in eyes. Jalal is in bed with ruks but couldn’t sleep and gets up he remember her words of his cruelty. Then we see jalal’s shrine and a voice of his soul(like in 1st episode) jalal: for the first time i couldn’t sleep you took away my sleep. Now jodha’s voice: i didn’t thought my words has that place in your heart you always said you can’t love because you don’t have heart but you hate with heart also jalal’s voice says this is difference b/w thought and truth. Jalal is shown walking here and there in room and there jodha is sleeping peacefully without the knowledge that she took away his sleep.
adham is holding moti’s hand forcing her and throws her on ground and says where will you he is drunk and catches her dupatta she runs. Rukiya gets up to see where is jalal she comes out and see adham is running behind moti and thinks why he is running behind her. Moti sees harem and goes inside so that he can’t come in. Adham says where you can go in harem he wears her dupatta and enters harem ruks sees this says how dare he enters harem then says he is maham’s son how can i forget. Here jodha is waiting for moti and ask about her nobody knows so she goes in search of her.
Moti is hiding behind curtain adham is on other side looking out for her. He sees her running. But couldn’t see her face. All queens are playing games moti without dupatta sneakily goes away from there. Adham bumps into one servant she is shocked he throws her away and says will not leave moti and leaves from there. Maham is informed of adham’s cheapness she is stunned and says women is becoming his weakness and tells her servant in mute something. In harem jodha is looking out for moti. Moti takes dupatta from box and wears it. Some servant ask you here moti is shivering and leaves. Jodha is behind adham his knife fell on ground jodha gives back to him without knowing he is adham as he has veil. Jodha suspects something.

She is happy about the threat on mahamanga’s son’s life . Jalal orders all to present in the harem themselves before him, All to show their faces and Soon Adham khan is discovered. all are stunned.
jalal shouts on adham and says show me your face otherwise i’ll cut down your head right now. Maham goes to him and pretends saying didn’t you listen what jalal said, slaps him and takes out his veil it turns out to be resham moti is stunned. Jalal shouts saying who is hiding that man i’ll not leave him servant informs him that someone is lying on ground in kitchen. He leaves to see jodha says to moti lets go there is no work of our here moti stops her and says jalal is in rage and will mind if we leave from here without his permission and lets check who dared to come in harem. All comes in kitchen and sees a man lying unconscious all are stunned maham and resham smirks it is shown that resham gave him some poison forcefully and placed his body in kitchen. Maham says to jalal maybe he ate poison because of your fear. Jalal says to take out this body from here and ask why he came here maham says its harem and there are women here maybe he came on someone assistance jalal says to check the dead body.
