Once there was a king 20 January 2022: Rana ji shuts the door.Rana ji turns around, outside Gayatri drops the flower plate and runs through the corridor. Rana ji shuts his eyes tight. Gayatri sits beside a wall and cry. Sulakshna says she knew that Rana ji can’t choose a simple girl leaving her alone.
Rana ji goes to light candles, then get intimate with Sulakshna and says this is enough of her to fell in his eyes. She asks what he is saying. He jerks her hand away saying this isn’t love. Sulakshna asks what is it that isn’t there in her. Rana ji says Gayatri’s feeling isn’t leaving him even in a thousand nights. Sulakshna says Gayatri isn’t here even. He says a flowers aroma remains there in the air for a long time. She holds him saying she will get him tonight. Rana ji says he can’t disrespect a woman, but she left him with no choice. He drags Sulakshna out of the room, comes to Gayatri and hugs her
Rana ji comes out of the room and hugs Gayatri. Gayatri smiles. Sulakshna cries that he can’t do this to her, he loves her and she is his first love only. What is she? A low graded girl. Rana ji stops Sulakshna saying his wife’s disrespect is his disrespect. Raaj Mata comes there and asks what happened. Rana ji says he can’t suffer more, he tried to give Sulakshna her right but she isn’t that Sulakshna now, whom he loved. She has fallen to floor now.
He says that she has changed so much that loving and respect her apart, he can’t even tolerate her. He has decided that there is no place for her in his life from today. Sulakshna asks how he can do this. Bari rani maa says to Rana ji that she did this all to him, he didn’t want to give him any pain. She must leave the palace now. Sulakshna asks where she will go. Bari Rani maa cries saying they will go where they came from. Rana ji stops the crying Bari Rani maa. Bari Rani maa cries apologizing Rana ji. Rana ji says it has only be his mistake. He says Amirkot has been an example in justice and today no injustice will be done, both will get what they want.
He knows Sulakshna wants to be a Rani, and Gayatri wants to be wife. One needs throne and the other love. He has decided that Sulakshna will get the throne, while he will go in Gayatri’s share. Tomorrow morning, Rana Indravadhan and Gayatri will leave the palace forever. Everyone is shocked at this decision.Rana ji comes to Gayatri in the room, he says he has got the tickets and they are going to Darjeling from tomorrow’s train. Raaj Mata and the ladies stood in white dresses behind them. Rana ji asks why they are wearing white clothes, they are worn when someone dies. Raaj Mata says if a Raja leaves the subjects it’s like a father has died in a house.
Jhumki taunts Bari Rani maa saying she bid huge about sending away Gayatri. Now she is going with Rana ji and will return with heir. Bari rani maa says she hasn’t lost yet, she will turn the game.Raaj Mata apologizes Rana ji saying she made his life difficult. Rana ji says she isn’t to be blamed, he couldn’t have got a life partner like Gayatri otherwise. He says today he wants to give Gayatri every right of a wife, that isn’t possible here. Here, Gayatri will daily be reminded that she is a second wife. He says Amirkot has her, but Gayatri only has a husband. She must let her go with her husband.Jhumki asks Bari Rani maa what plan she has now.
Bari Rani maa says that she must now get used to wear white dress, uptil now she was playing his wife and now she must get used to be his widow. She says tomorrow is Diwali, a bomb blast must take place tomorrow.At night, someone plants a bomb in Rana ji’s car.The next morning, Gayatri says to Rana ji that today is Diwali, she won’t leave with him without lighting a candle in temple. They head towards temple, light the candle together. Rana ji smiles, both pray. Gayatri thinks about her promise with Rana ji that she had once made, that they will light a candle together on Diwali. She thinks that she fulfilled her promise but life has brought them at such a turn now.
Raaj Mata comes and says that it is strange, on Diwali Raam and Seeta came back home and they are leaving home today. She says to Rana ji that he is doing right, he has a right to live his life. He says that a queen had deprived him of his rights, a mother is allowing him now. She tells him not to worry, she will take care of Amirkot, and he must go to fulfil responsibilities of a husband. She says that she brought him up as Raja, and bidding him as a son. She hugs Rana ji. Bari Rani maa comes behind thinking that Raaj Mata must prevent her tears till Rana ji’s dead body comes here and Bari rani maa rules the palace.
Swarna was in the car, Cheetah comes to the driving seat. Swarna asks about Kunwar ji and Kokilla. Cheetah says they left, and asked him to come with her else she won’t be able to get an heir.
While sitting in the car, Gayatri says to Rana ji that she hasn’t tell her parents that she is leaving forever. Rana ji says train will leave in ten minutes. Bari Rani maa says they will leave the world in only two minutes. Rana ji leaves. Gayatri says to Rana ji in the car that he took a wrong decision, if someone loses his place. Rana ji says she had wanted him to take a decision. Gayatri says she wanted him to decide between her and Sulakshna, not to leave the palace. Rana ji stops the car, and asks Gayatri to fight with him first. She says she isn’t fighting him and if he thinks so, he must ride in his car alone. She leaves the car. Rana ji comes behind her and holds her. He tells her softly, I love you. She is annoyed that he again spoke a bad word in English.
He smiles, and says he loves her more than anything. she smiles now. He kiss her forehead. He says that he knows people will call him names for leaving Amirkot. Gayatri says she won’t leave them for this. Rana ji says he accepts anything for her love, no one can separate them, nor even death. Gayatri hugs him, and asks if he loves her. She asks him to take her back home. She says he is hers as much as he is to the subject of Amirkot. She asks him to go back home. They come towards the car hand in hand. The bomb was about to blast in a few seconds and it does.
Raaj mata calls Yashoda to do something as the candle is going out. Jhumki thinks she will have to do much of a drama to be a widow. She is shocked to see Rana ji and Gayatri save the candle flame. Raaj Mata is happy to see them, Rana ji says to Gayatri that they have returned to palace. Raaj Mata comes and asks Gayatri what is there on her forehead. Bari Rani maa comes and asks if something happened to them? She was so worried when she heard about the blast. Rana ji tells Bari Rani maa they have her blessings, Gayatri had a foot cramp, Rana ji sat down to help her and the blast was over them. Rana ji goes inside. Gayatri asks Bari Rani maa how she knew about the blast, Bari Rani maa says she always know about what happens in Amirkot.
She tells Bari Rani maa that the black veiled lady was also there she was talking about then. Bari Rani maa says this is only imaginations, many women have such veils. She tells Gayatri to take rest. Jhumki fells on Gayatri’s feet saying she hated her only for her love but couldn’t get her. She apologizes Gayatri. Gayatri says they are tied in a strange bond and relation, relations have to be fulfilled. She will live in the palace with full protocol of Rani. Raaj Mata says this was the best Diwali in Palace. Gayatri goes inside with Sulakshna.
Swarna asks Cheetah in the car that she needs to eat imli. He gets out of the car to get her some, Swarna brings out a knife from the bag. Cheetah brings the imli, Swarna puts on knife injury on his arm and runs away.The doctor tells Rana ji that such blasts leave a deep down psychological effect on people. He must keep on giving in time medicines to her.
Swarna runs away when Cheetah comes to her from front. She backs up and fell on a pile of sugar. Cheetah traps her there.
Gayatri lights candles and do the pooja with Rana ji. Gayatri thinks that she doesn’t know what is written in her husband’s luck, who and why is he being attacked.
But in her life, she will fight against all the enemies apart, Yamraj as well. She prays for Rana ji’s life. Bari rani maa asks for the strength to make this Diwali the last of Gayatri’s. Gayatri gives everyone the smoke, Sulakshna backs up saying she doesn’t like smoke near her face. Gayatri is shocked. Gayatri brings the candle stand back. She smiles looking at Rana ji, who smiles back.Swarna was crying, Cheetah sits up and put on sugar over himself. He puts the sugar on his cut. He says she is more salty than this salt, warns her if she does this again he will forget his limits.
He stands up and asks her to get up, it is getting late. Swarna says when the servant is here, princess will not get up by herself. Cheetah turns around, comes to her and takes her hand. Swarna stands up, Cheetah takes her into his arms and leave the market.Gayatri brings the Prasad to Rana ji, Rana ji says he wants to give her something. She had challenged him that till Diwali she will win his love and they will light the candle together. He says she won, but he also didn’t lose. If he has her love, he couldn’t have lost. He had said that he will pay all the debt of her father. She had promised to pay his debt with him by helping him anyway.
Gayatri asks if he remembered it, Rana ji says he is the Raja of Amirkot, never forgets his promises. He claps, a servant brings a briefcase filled with money. Everyone in the palace is shocked to see this much amount. Rana ji says this debt amount along with interest… Bari Rani maa asks where he brought this much amount of money. Rana ji says if his wife can do so much for him, he can also do this. He whispers to Gayatri that he had thought he would give Seth ji his daughter too, but sends a message that they must tell Seth ji that he has only returned the money, his most precious thing is still with him.
Gayatri and Rana ji were together in a room.
Gayatri says to Rana ji that someone was about to push her out of the palace on Diwali and she has heard Raja’s never break promises. Rana ji says that promise was from a Raja not a husband. He kisses Gayatri’s hand. Sulakshna and Bari Rani maa watched from the terrace upstairs. Rana ji touches the smile of Gayatri praying evil eye stay away from her. Sulakshna was worried about it, Bari Rani maa thinks she will make their passage such difficult that they won’t survive together. Kunwar ji and Kokilla thinks that this means bari Rani maa failed in her mission to kill Rana ji. Laksh happily comes to Kunwar ji saying he is happy they killed Swarna.
Swarna comes along with Cheetah. Kokilla tells Laksh that he is a servant and will stay with Swarna. Gayatri is happy to see Swarna, Swarna runs towards Gayatri, hugs her and cries. Rana ji and Raaj mata are happy to see her there.
