Once there was a king 30 January 2022: In the palace, Rana ji drags Gayatri in a corner of the corridor. He hushes Gayatri up, saying no one can come between them now. He says he did the mistake, she gave him the punishment, now it’s his turn.
Avdesh walks in the corridor thinking about Gayatri.
Rana ji and Gayatri were in the backyard, Rana ji black folds Gayatri and takes her jewelry periodically.
Avdesh thinks about how Gayatri had stopped him from sitting on Rana ji’s seat.
Rana ji and Gayatri share some cozy moments together. Avdesh passes by and watches them together. He throws the alcohol off his mouth and throws a matchstick on them. Gayatri sits up at once watching the fire all around them. Both gets worried. Avdesh peeks at them from behind a tree and smiles saying he never want them to be together.
Laksh comes across Cheetah. Laksh says that Cheetah must not forget that Swarna is his wife, whether she lives or dies. Cheetah says the man who never fulfils any responsibilities of a husband has no right to be called a husband. Laksh says he even has a right to kill Cheetah. Cheetah says his life isn’t that easy to be taken. Kunwar ji comes there, he tells Laksh not to say anything to Cheetah and leave. Laksh resists but then leave. Kunwar ji tells Cheetah that he wasn’t brought here to love, because any man can do what he has been called to do.
Avdesh thinks about the intimacy between Rana ji and Gayatri, he puts his face in a water bucket to release his rage on Rana ji. He says Gayatri is only his, he wants a single chance to remove Rana ji from his way and make Gayatri his only. He shivers in rage saying Gayatri is only his.
Rana ji comes to Gayatri, he keeps a hand on hers silently and says he had listened in the stories that lovers come to each other crossing even seven seas. And here, they haven’t been able to be near to each other. Gayatri says what if it is someone else, and says she doesn’t like that Avdesh. Rana ji asks why she doubts him, Gayatri thinks about all that happened to her. Rana ji asks if he did something. Gayatri says he is strange, she is always afraid whenever he is around. Rana ji says he is just a bit different, why would he put on the fire. Had he wanted to kill him, he would have done this before. He asks her not to over think and both go towards the room.
The next morning, Gayatri stops Rana ji in the corridor and says he forgot something again. Rana ji smiles and heads to give her a kiss, she stops him and hands his handkerchief to him. He holds her hand and keeps it on his chest. Gayatri says someone would see them, Rana ji says he doesn’t care. Gayatri says he is being mischievous with the Rani of Amirkot. She watches Kunwar ji going to Avdesh’s room secretly.
Avdesh was lying on his bed watching his bracelet and talked to Gayatri. He says he wants to apologize Gayatri. Kunwar ji comes inside and asks if he can come in. Kunwar ji says he came to apologize him for hurt he gave yesterday. Avdesh says he is forgiven and asks Kunwar ji to be straight forward. Rana ji and Gayatri come at the door to listen what they speak about. Kunwar ji offers Avdesh a chance to win the lost war. Avdesh asks him to be clear. Kunwar ji says he can still win Amirkot, but his help. Kunwar ji forwards his friendship hand towards Avdesh. Avdesh smiles.
Kunwar ji forwards the hand of friendship to Avdesh. Gayatri and Rana ji await his reply. Avdesh shouts at Kunwar ji to go out now. He can never think about it. Rana ji smiles victoriously. Avdesh takes his sword out. Kunwar ji is frightened at once and says he is leaving. Avdesh says nothing should happen to Rana ji. Avdesh thinks that to win the trust, one has to win it first. Now the game would be fun.
Gayatri makes Swarna drink soup with her own hands, she complains that Swarna didn’t tell her about her illness. Swarna hugs Gayatri and says she already has so many tensions. Gayatri asks Swarna if Laksh takes care of her? Swarna thinks about Cheetah and says yes, he takes care of her. Gayatri says Kunwar ji keeps good care of her, she had never thought he would be so caring. Swarna thinks about Cheetah and says she took him really wrong. Gayatri says to Swarna that her mother says one must smoke the house with kappoor when someone is ill. She heads to leave. Swarna wonders how she must tell Gayatri that she is thinking not about Laksh but a stranger.
In the palace hall, Avdesh gets a gift happily. Rana ji asks what this is. Avdesh says it must be from Raajeshwari. She remembers his birthday always that is today. He brings about a little bottle. Gayatri asks what this is. He says this must contain Rajeshwari’s blood just to remind they are bind with a relation. Rana ji asks where his sister is. Avdesh says she is like a free wind breeze that is nowhere but is everywhere. Raaj Mata greets him. Avdesh touches her feet, she blesses him. Avdesh asks her permission to call her Maa as a gift. Raaj Mata nods. Rana ji asks Avdesh if he wouldn’t ask him for a gift. Avdesh says he won’t be able to give that to him. Rana ji promises he will give that to him. Avdesh cheers, and says he wants to defeat Rana ji once. Rana ji says winning and losing matter when they weren’t friends and today is the day of celebration. Today, his birthday will be celebrated in the palace. Avdesh cheers and says for the first time, he is going to celebrate his birthday with his owns. He had a lot of money in life, but he is witnessing love for the first time. Kokilla and Kunwar ji hear this, Kokilla curses him for asking a chance while he denied Kunwar ji’s help then. Kunwar ji says he isn’t any simple person, but promises Kokilla to win him tonight.
Swarna gets ready, she looks behind to find Cheetah looking at her. He says he came to tell her that guests are here. Swarna nods, and holds Cheetah’s hand. She says thank you to him for everything. Laksh comes and watches them. He says that function is only for royal people. Swarna leaves Cheetah’s hand. Laksh says beggars like him aren’t required there, it is a sitting company not a bed. He holds Swarna’s hand and takes her out of the room.
Rana ji plays piano in the party. Gayatri enjoys it watching him. Avdesh looks at her. Kunwar ji appreciates Rana ji. Rana ji says today Avdesh called Raaj Mata as Maa, their relation isn’t only friendship but brotherhood. A brother is never denied of anything, he will give Avdesh a chance for what he wants. Avdesh says there is no liability to fulfil his wish. Rana ji asks in which game Avdesh wants him to either defeat him or get defeated. Avdesh gives Rana ji a gun, he goes backward and says they must now see who takes a good aim among them. He keeps a glass over his head. Rana ji takes the aim. Raaj Mata says game is a way to make oneself happy. Gayatri says they won’t play this game, what if any of them get hit. Avdesh says he has no worry now, he will welcome death even. He would think that the world’s most beautiful woman stopped his husband for him. Gayatri says this is no game, they don’t need to stake his life for celebration. Avdesh comes to Gayatri and apologizes her, he says he never had relations and bonding, then how he would understand it. He says he and his sister has always played such games, he understands for them this is a strange one. Gayatri asks him not to apologize again and again. Avdesh says to Rana ji that not everyone gets everything in life. Rana ji says he had promised Avdesh that he would get a chance, it isn’t necessary that one stake life in every game. Avdesh says he doesn’t want to make Rana ji lose. Rana ji asks he himself also doesn’t want to lose, then who will lose? Avdesh says luck. Rana ji wonders what is that game. Avdesh says it is Choker.
