Once there was a King 7 February 2022: Bari Rani Maa tells her this is the key to secret. She says she couldn’t hear everything between Gayatri and Raaj Mata but she knows this amulet has a deep rooted relation with the secret. Rajeshwari says only Sartaj can tell what it is.
Raaj Mata says to Gayatri that if Gayatri hadn’t taken care of, there must have been a huge problem. Gayatri says that their relation won’t bear the burden of this secret. Rana ji is going to punish Sartaj for something that he might not have committed, though he must be punished severely for what he has done to Rana ji. She says that a father is going to be killed by a son. Rana ji heard this, he comes to Raaj Mata and asks to tell him this is a lie. He asks Raaj Mata if he isn’t a Raja, his life and his inheritance is a lie. He is upset that he isn’t a Raja and her son. He shouts it in agony, throws the things around crying about it. He points a revolver around his forehead, Raaj Mata and Gayatri stops him.
He pulls the trigger, a shower of blood gets into the vase nearby, Rana ji fell on the floor. Gayatri fell on the ground besides her and cries. It was a night mare, Gayatri wakes up sweating. Gayatri thinks that she must never in dream, bring to her tongue the relation between Rana ji and Sartaj.
Bari Rani Maa asks Rajeshwari if she has put on perfume ever. Rajeshwari says she never has time for these idol things. Bari Rani Maa says she doesn’t have to put it on herself, but on Sartaj. Rajeshwari says even Gayatri isn’t allowed to go there. Bari Rani Maa says where Rani’s aren’t allowed, maids go there. Bari Rani Maa puts on that perfume on a handkerchief and tells Rajeshwari to smell it for a while. Rajeshwari faints. Bari Rani Maa says she had heard that chloroform works fast. She says now Rajeshwari would accomplish her goal.
Gayatri runs outside to see Rana ji taking aim in the garden. She runs to him, and hugs him there. Rana ji smiles. He asks Gayatri what happened. Gayatri touches him. She says she wants to tell him something, she loves him a lot. Till today, only he had said this but today she confesses that she loves him. Rana ji smiles and asks if she knows the meaning of what she has said. Gayatri nods and says he is her life, she won’t be live without him. She hugs him again. He tells her that she should trust him, nothing will happen to him. Gayatri asks what he was doing? Rana ji says he has fought in the wars, but today he feels that it is really difficult to kill an unarmed man. Gayatri is worried and thinks if she stops this, there will be more problem. She hugs him again.
Gayatri prays in the temple that she has to select between two sinners, what she should do. Rajeshwari gets the maid in the jail, getting her fainted. She shuts the door from inside, takes the tray of food and says this old lady make her do so much, before moving on.
Bari Rani Maa comes out of the room, Mansen asks her where she is going. Bari Rani Maa says she wants to go out now. Mansen says he will have to tell Rana ji about it. Bari Rani Maa asks how many children he has. He says three. Bari Rani Maa says only daughters are there at his house, his son is with her. She tells him if he tries to stop her again, he won’t let his son live. He gets to her feet and asks not to do anything to his children.
Rajeshwari takes the keys from the jailer by dodging him.
Sartaj comes to the bars and says he knew she would return for sure. He says there was a noise, but no one is here. Rajeshwari holds Sartaj from back and get him fainted. She then gets him in a trolley of cane and brings him out of the jail.
Gayatri says today, a wife or a Rani has to keep her faith behind her. Being a wife today, she is determined to keep the secret a secret. She can’t stop Rana ji from committing this sin, but she takes this sin on her head. Rajeshwari dragged the trolley in the garden, Gayatri turns around and stops her and comes to her. Rajeshwari covers her head completely, Gayatri gives her the Prasad and tells her to go and ruin the rubbish. She comes to another maid and asks her to take the Prasad but she says her hands have been ruined.
Gayatri wonders how the first maid’s hands were so clean. Bari Rani Maa comes to take Prasad too, she asks Gayatri how her prayer go so long today. Gayatri says she doesn’t know when she is praying. Bari Rani Maa says a sinner like her do prayer for long time but why Gayatri. Gayatri says that prayer is done to avoid sin.
Bari Rani Maa shows Sartaj the amulet. Sartaj asks Bari Rani Maa if she got this amulet. Bari Rani Maa says she knew he knows the secret. Bari Rani Maa says there is only a single day of his life left, but if he makes an agreement, she can get him life for this secret. She turns to send Rajeshwari away and take care that no one comes in.
Gayatri watches the rubbish basket in the garden. She wonders that if that maid passed by here, why she didn’t collect it.
Bari Rani Maa says Gayatri will never go against Rana ji. Sartaj says she has come to buy gold and has brought soil with her in trade. Bari Rani Maa asks what else he wants. Sartaj says half of Amirkot.
Rajeshwari thinks about listening to what Bari Rani Maa is hearing? She leaves the rubbish basket there. Gayatri watches the basket in the corridor and wonders why it is here. She follows Rajeshwari, who removes the veil off her face. Gayatri thinks what Rajeshwari was taking in that basket then. Sartaj says he received this from Raaj Mata in installments, but there is no guarantee of the life of Bari Rani Maa. Bari Rani Maa clutches his neck with bead string, she says she will give him the gift right now. She says she isn’t as idiot as her daughter in law. He will get full death from her.
Rajeshwari stops in the corridor and asks Gayatri why she is stalking her. Gayatri asks what she is doing in this dress. Rajeshwari says her luck has been blackened. Gayatri says she has never seen her this worried. Rajeshwari says she keeps her problems hidden from the world. She thinks she must keep Gayatri away from Bari Rani Maa and Sartaj. She turns away, Gayatri stops her and says when she will tell her the rest? Bari Rani Maa holds a knife at the neck of Sartaj, she watches Rajeshwari and points at her to go away. Rajeshwari says she became the garbage girl to see how her life would be spent.
Rajeshwari comes to the room, she gets to Rana ji’s feet and asks him to take her life before Sartaj. Rana ji asks what happened. Rajeshwari says Gayatri only has suspect in her eyes. She doesn’t trust any of her act, she has to hear her taunts each day. Rana ji says if she was hurt because of Gayatri he apologizes her. Rajeshwari leaves. Rana ji says to Gayatri he is already ashamed of not being able to protect Rajeshwari’s respect, she must not increase his problem. He says he is waiting tomorrow, just to finish that Sartaj and this story with him.
Bari Rani maa keeps a knife at Sartaj’s neck, she says if he doesn’t tell her she will kill her. He agrees, and tells her what puts her in shock.
