Once there was a king 2 March 2022: Gayatri hugs Rana ji.There in the jail, Raaj Mata says that a gardner comes to know first about the spring in the garden. There is something between Rana ji and Gayatri.Rana ji says today he has put on color over her Savitri, he leaves dancing. Gayatri says this isn’t his but the victory of their love.Laksh comes to Kunwar ji and requests him to listen to him, he has something important to tell him. Suddenly he hits a dummy and the Trishol and drum in his hand fell over Laksh. The dummy fell over, Kunwar ji and Bari Rani Maa run towards Laksh. Bari Rani maa drags the trishol out of his body, Kokilla fell over his body disbelievingly.
Kunwar ji got out of senses and calls the people to take him to hospital. Laksh Raj faints. Kokilla cries calling his name. Rana ji also runs out to the scenario and was broken. Savitri runs outside too.Lakhan dresses up away from Swarna, she keeps a hand on his shoulder crying. He says she can’t let the pearls fell off his eyes. Swarna asks him to take her his home. Savitri comes crying, she was crying and tells them what had happened. Swarna was left in shock. Rana ji asks who did this. A servant there tells him that it was an accident, but Rana ji says he doesn’t think so. Bari Rani Maa asks Rana ji to take hold of himself, Laksh Raj is gone and they need to prepare for his last rituals with complete royal previledges.
The ladies take off Swrana’s bridal attires and notices she hadn’t put on sindoor. They say it is a bad omen. Savitri thinks that she is in such a bad luck, she can’t give Swarna her shoulder to cry over.
Kokilla cries over Laksh’s body. Kunwar ji thinks he was left waiting for an heir and lost his son. The heir was his last hope but now he fears he loses something else as well. Rajeshwari thinks that Laksh was the last thorn in her way, now she will only give the heir to Amirkot. Bari Rani Maa thinks Laksh didn’t have any reason to lie to her, it means Gayatri is alive and this means she is near to them, but where. Savitri comes to the hall.
Savitri thinks that she had always prayed for him that he gets on the right path but never thought anything bad for him. She prays for Swarna to pass through this test.
Lakhan comes to Savitri and tells her that he is taking her away from here. Kunwar ji and Kokilla were cruel to her when they needed her, but now they don’t even need her. Savitri says this isn’t the right time, her husband has just died. Lakhan says that husband never gave her any right. Savitri says he gave her name. Lakhan asks what is she worried for that her mission won’t be accomplished. Gayatri says Swarna is her friend and because of her she and Rana ji could unite, this is royal palace and if Swarna vanishes so soon; the accident will no more remain an accident.
Lakhan says he doesn’t care and is taking Swarna from here. Gayatri thinks she needs to make Rana ji well as soon as possible.Bari Rani Maa has a nightmare about Gayatri attacking her with a knife. She thinks that she needs to end this fear of Gayatri now, else it will kill her.
Gayatri washes her face, she thinks may be Rana ji was angry at her name but that may only be an effect of the medicine. She can’t fhide the truth from Rana ji with the fear of medicine. Bari Rani Maa enters the room, Gayatri’s face was visible as shadow on the floor. Bari Rani Maa slips over, Gayatri holds her from behind but she keeps herself hidden. Bari Rani Maa leaves.
Gayatri thinks that the dust over diamond turns it into stone. She must remove that dust.Savitri comes to room where her and Rana ji’s photo had been burnt and torn lying on the floor. She goes to clean it. Rana ji walks the corridor thinking about the gun shot by Gayatri, his punishment to Raaj Mata, attack on him in jail and now the death of Lakshraj. He thinks there is so many accidents in the palace, it seems all of them have been locked by lies and that lock has a single key of truth. He needs to find it.Savitri hands the photo joint back, Rana ji comes in then. She says she was cleaning when she found this photo.
He tells her to throw it away. She says this is the last memory of his first wife, he must not end all the memories for the sake of one bad memory. He says he has just fired the dead body of his brother, he has no time for this all. Savitri asks if he has ever thought why his hands only trembled while burning this photo; because a house can be gotten emptied from someone who rents it but not from someone who is an owner and may be Gayatri is still the owner of his heart. She leaves Rana ji thoughtful.Rana ji shouts at Savitri that he has forbidden her speak about Gayatri or Raaj Mata. Savitri says she wants to bring him to the truth.
He asks why is she effected with all this, she says she is his… he feels head ache at once and asks who is she to him. She begins to speak but she shouts at her to shut up and comes out in the corridor. She runs behind him. Rajeshwari holds Rana ji in the corridor and pushes Savitri away. She bangs with the wall and her ear ring fell down on the floor. Rajeshwari asks her to see what she has done and warns her to stay away from her husband. She takes Rana ji into the room and shuts the door.Lakhan knocks at the door, Swarna opens it. Lakhan says he can’t see her in this condition, she must have faith in him and his love, and he will take her away from here. Swarna shuts the door as such. Lakhan asks her to open the door.
Gayatri holds Bari Rani Maa by neck and says she separated her and Rana ji, she had changed the bullet, and she had pushed her down the cliff as well. She knows everything and clutches Bari Rani Maa’s neck. She wakes up from the nightmare again and curses Laksh for always creating problems for her. She wonders where Gayatri is, wherever she must be has taken her sleep off her eyes. Bari Rani Maa finds the earring in the corridor and matches it to Gayatri’s photo. She thinks Gayatri is around here somewhere, now she will play with her and will clutch Gayatri’s neck with her own hands.
The next morning, Lakhan was asleep at the door of Swarna. Swarna opens the door, he stands up to speak to her but she goes ahead. He follows her. Kunwar ji says to Kokilla she hasn’t taken a single sip of water, if she doesn’t eat or drink… Kokilla says she will die, he must let her. What will she do of her life now. Swarna comes to their room, Kokilla asks him to see who ate their son. Lakhan thinks that if she will go to mud her clothes will be ruined, these people will only insult her. Kokilla comes to jerk Swarna saying she should also have died after Laksh’s death. She curses Swarna and shouts at her to go and die somewhere. Kunwar ji stops Kokilla, and jerks Swarna to go away from here. Swarna cries in the corridor, Laksh follows her.
He holds her hand and stops her. He tells her that he can’t see her sad like this, he just want to see her happy. Swarna withdraws her hand, she cries and asks what is left with her now. His touch is a sin for her, her husband has died and she is a widow. She requests him not to do this all, forget her and not to come to her anymore. She runs into the room.
Bari Rani Maa comes to Gayatri’s photo and puts flowers around it. Rajeshwari was shocked to see this and asks why has she kept her photo here, what is this new drama. Rana ji also comes there, Savitri follows him and was shocked to see her photo draped in flowers.
Bari Rani Maa cries that she should have done this really earlier, had Gayatri been alive they would have found her. Her soul tells her that Gayatri is no more. Rana ji asks so what? Bari Rani Maa says they couldn’t find her body, but they have to perform all the other rituals else her soul will never get peace. Rana ji asks what this all will do. Bari Rani maa says his anger to her is justified, but she is bound because of her love. Whatever Gayatri may be, she was the daughter in law of this palace, she feels that Gayatri is somewhere around. Rajeshwari was alert all at once. Rana ji says this is only an illusion of Bari Rani Maa.
Bari Rani Maa says be it, but she wants to tell her, she has started to come in her dreams. Kunwar ji and Kokilla also come out.Rana ji denies doing any rituals for Gayatri. Rajeshwari was happy. Savitri thinks atleast his hatred came to any use of her in her life. Bari Rani Maa says this Shrat will take place. Gayatri’s soul is wandering all around, its alright he won’t be willing to do this. She has called someone else. Rana ji asks whom? Bari Rani Maa tells him she called Gayatri’s mother here. Rana ji and everyone leave. Savitri thinks that the biggest burden in the world is the death of young child, how will her mother suffer it all. She leaves crying.
Bari Rani Maa says to the photo that in whatever corner of the palace Gayatri is, she will have to come out. She instructs the guards to keep an eye on all the doors of this palace. She thinks that if Gayatri is in the palace, she won’t be able to go stay silent. Pandit ji asks who will do this Shrat? Rana ji says he will, it is said that until Shrat is doing the relation with the dead never breaks completely. He wants to free himself as well as Gayatri. They all hear a horn, Bari Rani Maa says it seems Gayatri’s mother has arrived. A man comes and informs Bari Rani maa that Sethani was ill and herself could not come. Bari Rani Maa asks what happened to her that she couldn’t come herself.
The servant says she had a heartattack. Savitri uncontrollably calls Maa. Bari Rani Maa thinks who won’t call Maa hearing about her mother’s pain. She goes to see all the maids, and thinks no matter Gayatri hasn’t come to front, she will for sure go to meet her mother.
Gayatri thinks about her mother, she thinks she must go to meet Maa. Her dress had been stuck, she thinks it seems she must not leave Rana ji. Her husband needs her. Rana ji asks Bari Rani Maa to have a seat. He does the Pooja. Pandit ji announces that it has been done. He comes to Savitri and says she always wanted him to do something about his memories. Today, Gayatri has died for him, he has removed all her memories and soon her name would also be wiped out. Savitri asks Rana ji to take his medicines in time and not forget what she said to him. He nods.
Savitri cries in the room thinking she stopped then, but she must go to inquire her mother’s health.
Bari Rani Maa thinks that Gayatri has got really strong that she didn’t go to meet her mother, didn’t even stop Rana ji do her Shrat. She says they will have a lot of fun in this game.Rajeshwari think that Rana ji has stopped behaving well. She turns around to see Rana ji standing upside down. Rana ji says this is an exercise, it will prevent his head ache by turning his blood flow towards his head. Rajeshwari tells him to stop doing this drama, he must only take his medicines. Savitri is better than Rajeshwari, since when she has started to give him medicines he really feels better. Rajeshwari asks her to stop comparing her to that maid, doesn’t she takes care of him? He says she does, but she speak more and cares less while Savitri cares more and speaks less.
Rajeshwari leaves. Rana ji stands up straight and says this is an amazing exercise, he must tell Savitri about it.Swarna cries in her room watching Laksh’s photo. She says he was her husband, she must have been there with him when he was getting hurt and took his last breathes. Kokilla comes to her, she asks if Swarna thinks that now she will be free, she will be happy with her love of life. Now Swarna will spend the whole of her youth in a jail.
Savitri was leaving the house, Rana ji stops her and asks where she was. Savitri says she had kept his medicine there. He says there can be something else as well. Rana ji tells her he did the exercise, it really works. Savitri says he must do it daily, it will help bring his memory back soon. He asks where she is going, she says to his first wife’s house. Bari Rani Maa’s spy watches them.Kunwar ji comes to Bari Rani Maa upset, he says he has lost his son. All his hopes of getting the throne has also gone with him, now he has to live as servant for whole of his life.
Bari Rani Maa tells him that life is a game, there are victories and losses in life. The one who accepts defeat loses. Kunwar ji says he has lost everything. Bari Rani Maa says that Rana ji is still in his control, out of six one month has gone. Till today, his memory hasn’t returned and she won’t let it come back. After that, everything will be named after him in five months. Kunwar ji asks what if his memory returns, Bari Rani Maa says even the weather comes here with her permission. Once Kunwar ji gets on the throne they can buy an heir.
Rana ji asks why she is so fond of Gayatri, she was a disloyal. Savitri says she has no relation to her, but she was something to Rana ji. She still isn’t stone hearted, she is going from his side. Rana ji says she won’t go anywhere. Savitri says Gayatri’s mother is innocent, she knows neither he cares about his own mother nor motherhood.
He couldn’t understand his mother’s pain how she will worry about Gayatri’s mother. He must be seated on his throne with attitude, she will go to fulfill her duties.
Rajeshwari eats the sweet Laddu, Bari Rani Maa comes and stuffs them in her mouth. She points a gun at Rajeshwari and says she was her swords who is now rusted. She doesn’t hang her swords over walls, she either uses it or breaks it. She cleans Rajeshwari’s mouth and leaves saying sorry to her. Rajeshwari shivers in fear.
Bari Rani maa comes to Savitri on the gate and asks where is she going? Rana ji says not only her, he is also going to Gayatri’s place.
Bari Rani Maa thinks if he reaches there her secret will be revealed. She says Rana ji must go if he wants to. He is already bearing Laksh’s sadness, he will be burdenized if he goes there. She went to meet them and even got medicines for her. Rana ji says alright, then neither he will go nor Savitri. They go inside.
Bari Rani Maa and Rajeshwari drink and play at night. Rajeshwari tells her Rana ji denied to take medicines, he was doing the exercise standing upside down. Bari Rani Maa smiles, Rajeshwari thinks she is really drunk. Bari Rani Maa says sorry to Rajeshwari for morning, she was worried and thought Gayatri was alive.
Rajeshwari drops the coins. Bari Rani Maa says Laksh said this, but maybe he was drunk. Gayatri must have done something after hearing about her mother’s ailment, if she is there she has to find Gayatri in any condition. Gayatri put on color over her face, when the servant comes to call her for food. She drops the pot of coal and thinks she must get some more now. She leaves hiding her half colored face.
Rajeshwari goes to get more wine. Savitri who gets the coal in her hands hits Rajeshwari and drops it. Rajeshwari asks if she will get a bad eye if she shows her face. She mocks where she is getting this coal? Savitri says she prepares her own food, so she was taking coals.
Rajeshwari asks how she got so shy today, that she has begun to veil. She leaves.
In the room, she shows the wine bottle to Bari Rani Maa. Bari Rani Maa asks where she took so much time. Rajeshwari says it was Savitri, she always wander around Rana ji who dances around her all day. Bari Rani Maa asks what the color is over her hands. Rajeshwari says Savitri was getting coal for herself. Bari Rani Maa thinks for a while, she remembers she had seen Savitri white, then found Gayatri’s earring as well. She jerks her head, taps her cheeks. Rajeshwari asks why is she putting herself in pain, she can help her slapping her. Bari Rani Maa forbids her, then thinks about Savitri leaving for Gayatri’s home. She says this black color is troubling her, is it possible? If this is so, she will inquire about it as soon as possible.
