Bari Rani maa was curt.
People make slogans in favor of Rana ji and Gayatri. Rajeshwari had also arrived there. Rana ji caress Gayatri, she pukes spitting the water. Rana ji asks if she is fine. Gayatri hugs him.

Rajeshwari stops them all and says she is the wife of Rana ji and the Rani. Rana ji stops Rajeshwari and says she isn’t a queen, she didn’t solve the problems of people when they had come to her. Rajeshwari asks how he knows about it, he was sound asleep then. Rana ji says Raja’s never sleep sound at the sounds of their people, he had heard everything. He says that today Rajeshwari proved that there isn’t a God in every stone. Rajeshwari leaves curtly.
In the palace, Gayatri lights the second candle. She had promised to light it when she will become a Rani of Amirkot. Rajeshwari says light two candles doesn’t bring Diwali. Gayatri says she became a wife first, then a Rani today and now… Rajeshwari says she will only give an heir to Amirkot. Gayatri says Rajeshwari won’t be able to call Rana ji as well, she will disclose her in front of Rana ji. Rajeshwari says to Gayatri that she is a kitchen lady, those who hold knives never fight with sword holders. She says she will tell her what the worth of her candles is. She comes to put the candles off with the blow of her hand, Gayatri holds her hands. Gayatri says the hands that run a household are very strong, if she dare she must move on. Raaj Mata and Swarna claps, Rajeshwari leaves, Gayatri smiles.
Rajeshwari comes to the room asking Bari Rani Maa to do something about Gayatri, she was shocked to see Kokilla in the room dancing as a monkey in front of Bari Rani Maa. Rajeshwari asks her to stop this drama, she tells Rajeshwari that this is washkalan (hypnotism) that she did to Kokilla. Bari Rani Maa says all the talents and skills fail, only one thing works that is magic. She sends Kokilla to pick a ball for her, and shows Rajeshwari a black beaded string and says Rajeshwari will use this black magic against Rana ji. No one will ever be able to stop her from giving an heir to the palace. Rajeshwari throws the ball away and asks Kokilla to fetch it, Kokilla looks at Bari Rani Maa who tells her to slap Rajeshwari. Bari Rani maa says she did the magic, not Rajeshwari. Bari Rani Maa says sorry to Gayatri.
The next morning, Gayatri prays in the temple. She says that two candles have been lit, third is still left. There is still a boundary between her and Rana ji. Until the true face of Rajeshwari is disclosed it can never happen. She says it is time to play her last bid. Rana ji comes behind her, she smiles and turns to leave. Rana ji stops the door’s way. He seems careless. Gayatri passes from under his arm, smiling.
In the room, Gayatri finds a dress that Rana ji had gifted her. She had worn it she and Rana ji came close to each other. She feels a knock at the window from stones, she comes to balcony and is shocked to see Rana ji down there. She asks what is he doing. He says he is coming up and climbs the wooden ladder. She asks why he isn’t coming from the inside. He says wind storms always come like this. He comes up, Gayatri asks what if someone see him there. She asks what if he fell down. He says people would say Rana ji fell off in love. He gives her a red rose. He asks Gayatri if she has read about Romeo Juliet and Shireen Farhad. She says she did. He tells her about BaluMaru, the lover of Amirkot. Gayatri asks when he started to believe in this all. He says since he fall in love with her. He says love teaches one everything. He comes forward but she stops him. He says tonight is the night for them to get united, and asks Gayatri to meet him in the garden behind the palace tonight, he will show her the meaning of I love you more. Gayatri says she is his wife, he can take her in front of everyone then why hidden? He says it has its own pleasures. Rajeshwari hears this and says she won’t let his night ever come.
