Jodha Akbar 22 March 2020: Resham finds a note on his body which indicts Modi. Jalal gets furious and announces that he will pass the judgement next day, Jodha tries to explain things but he shuts her off.
MA asks Jodha to leave and she wants to have a tete-a tete with Moti in private. Moti tells MA about everything which happened and MA threatens her to keep her mouth shut in front of Jalal else she will jeopardize Jodha’s life.
Jodha thinks that Moti is not guilty and is being framed, Moti cries inconsolably and remembers MA’s words, Jodha tries to pacify her and asks her to sleep in her room.
MA recalls how she let AK out of the harem, Ruks came and tells MA that she knows it was AK who was behind Moti, MA tries to dissuade her but Ruks tells her that she wont if MA becomes a loyal slave. MA is one shrewd woman, turns the tables on Ruks that she will be in a tight spot if Jalal comes to know that it was Ruks who hid the truth from Jalal. Also she categorically tells Ruks that MA will never ever be a slave to anyone and only works for Mughal sultanate.
Jodha tries to figure out what Moti is blabbering in her sleep, wakes her up, but Moti doesnt tell her anything. Jodha thinks that there is definitely something which Moti is hiding from her.
At AMer:Menavati pays a visit to Shaguni Bai and tells her that Jodha is not happy in her marriage.Both Jalal-Jodha were trying to fake their relationship in front of them.
Shaguni Bai asks her to be patient and wait for some more time, as the child too crawls ,falls and then starts walking, similar is the case of Jo-Ja marriage. There is a ray of hope as Jalal also sided with Jodha in putting up a show of the relationship being working.
At Agra:Jalal calls for Moti’s immediate presence in Diwan-e-Khas.
in jalal’s court everybody gathers as jalal enters the court. Maham,jodha, ruks all are there. He sits on throne and everybody with head down greets him. Jalal gives a look at jodha. Moti bai enters the court. Jalal says you knew its not allowed that someone else enters the harem but he entered there because of you moti denies jalal says its proved in that letter and ask servant to read it once he reads again letter it is written that i came to meet moti and wanted to see you moti but eating poison for you..

moti is being taken to the jail. Jalal comes there and says we ask for the last wish from prisoner and ask about her wish she says you have given what you wanted to and now i want nothing jalal says asked for wish only if not any then its okay and leaves from there.
Jodha is desperately seeking help from every quarter, even Hameeda doesnt help her, she is crying at her helplessness, Maham comes and rubs salt on her wounds,she explains the way how Moti will die her slow death says she will strive for air then will suffocate then die jodha is terrified and then she hands over the poison and asks her to give it to Moti so that she doesnt have to suffer much and will die in a minute jodha is stunned. Jodha asks Maham why is she hurting her, Maham tells her some ant story which shows her true colours in front of Jodha and threatens Jodha to be wary of Maham and not to come in her way. jodha is shocked to see her talking like this.
Jodha prays and asks for some path in front of Kanhaji, Rahim comes and tells her to give the wish letter to him so that he can ask for toys from him, Jodha remembers the wish granted to her and is happy and hugs Rahim. Moti is getting walled in.
Jalal is having discussions with his courtiers about Mathura politics when Jodha barges into his court. She tells that she wants to talk to Shehenshah, Jalal asks everyone to leave, Jodha tells him that she wants to save Moti’s life, Jalal tells her he cant go back on his words. She shows him the wish letter.
Jodha gives him back the letter of the wish he granted to her after wining chess game and says you said you you will give me ine wish and I want life of Moti Bai, this is my wish. he fumes and gets up from his place, comes to her takes the letter from and throws it away. he is about to leave when jodha holds him by hand he grabs her hand and pulls her closer and whisper in ear saying you said it right nothing is big then words of a king and leaves while jodha looks on.
wall is being created behind which moti bai is about to bury. solidiers are about to place last brick when someone comes and stops them, a messenger comes and asks to break the wall as per the orders of Jalal. Moti is freed, Jodha comes and hugs Moti. Both share an emotional moment.
Resham informs Maham that Moti is safe and came out along with Jodha. Maham is furious and shouts at Jodha for her ill behaviour at the court to save Moti’s life, she returns the poison to Maham and tells her to use it for someone else at some other time. Maham insults Jodha that she is useless in front of all the wives and threatens that one day she will show her place once Jalal has his fill then Jodha will be discarded. Her beauty will fade in some years and then she will be worthless in harem.
