Chandra asks Helina,do you have any idea who must have told bindusara, Helina says no in fact I was worried,because it would have put mine and Apma ma relation with him in trouble,Chandra says right your mother killed durdharas and so we never put this topic forward let’s get everyone and talk to bindusara.
Mora says Chandra it’s my order you shall not loose your calm over bindusara, Bindusara walks in,Chandra looks at his cheek and remembers slapping him hard and walks to him and sits beside him,and says I’m talking to you as father and not king,bindusara stands up and gets aside,Chandra says don’t be scared I won’t loose my calm,we are all worried for you how did this come to your mind,your choti ma loves you and she didn’t kill your mother,bindusara asks
did you throw choti ma out of mahal once,Chandra says yes because then proofs were against her but later it was proved she hadn’t killed your ma,ask anyone here, I still regret my decision,bindusara asks who killed my ma,Helina nods to Chandra,Chandra says you aren’t big enough to know this answer,bindusara says may be because choti ma killed my mother and leaves.
Chandra walks away too,mora walks to Nandini ,and says few years back our relation was broken and now again because of you the relation with your son has been spoiled and walks away.nandini in tears.bindusara asleep.he thinks it’s nandini beside him but finds it’s Helina,Helina says I know you can’t sleep alone and so I’m here for you,bindusara says my brother,Helina says don’t worry he shall sleep alone,I will give you company today, you are my favourite son you see.
Adonis wakes up and says granny I need ma,Apma says go to sleep she won’t come,and dare you open your eyes,Helina says here I got you your favourite juice you will feel better,bindusara takes it and feels drunk again and falls off to sleep.helina thinks you aren’t my favourite son but my biggest weapon and for this I need to give you this drug.
Next morning Chandra walks to Nandini,he sees Nandini prepping to leave with bow and arrow and asks where are you going,nandini says I thought of going hunting with bindusara, I don’t want to loose him,I need some time alone,Chandra says but you need to look after you too and so take guards,Helina hiding and listening.
Bindusara wakes up to dasi discussing who will be the king,bindusara or nandini son,dasi says only when bindusara wasn’t in this world only then nandini son would be the king,also bindusara is step son,he won’t have importance later,bindusara runsaway ,Apma and Helina give the dasi money,and says leave Magad soon.
Bindusara thinks about being step son,nandini walks to him and says you like hunting right,lets go together,and I’m your mother why will I harm you,just spend some time with me and all your Misunderstandings will be gone,bindusara doesn’t answer ,nandini says ok this means you won’t come,bindusara says I will surely come,nandini hugs him.
Nandini and bindusara in jungle and she hunts a bird,bindusara says choti ma your aim is so good,there’s no one like you in Magad,guards go get my hunt,bindusara says ma look that hill my friends said we can hunt there a lot let’s go,nandini says sure son let’s go,bindusara thinks you killed my ma to get my father and now got me to hunt so that you can kill me and your son can be Yuvraj but now I shall kill you and at top he says ma look aim,nandini says I can’t see anything,little back step back and Nandini slips off,bindusara holds her hand,and says choti ma don’t worry just don’t leave my hand,I shall protect you.bindusara remembers helinas pricking words and is in tears an sleeves her hand,nandini is shocked and falls off the cliff.bindusara says this is because you killed my mother,nandini thinks about promise she had accepted from durdhara,bindusara doesn’t even look at nandini and leaves.
