Bindu holds water glass to Raja, and explains she was just apologizing Rani. Raja forces her not to speak to Rani again, she offers him water but he leaves throwing it away. The ladies appreciate Rani and were sure she would win. Amrita replies if she loses, and Rani wins, even then it would be her victory. Bari Rani Maa thinks she needs to do something else as Amrita would be of no use.
Rani sat alone when Meenu brings food for her. Rani watches Raja had cut his hand with an axe and it was badly aching. She hurries towards him, tears her dupatta to bandage it silently. She then questions why he never end this drama, Raja says when she can’t leave being concerned for him how can he. He is aware she hasn’t eaten anything. Rani boasts she has already eaten food. Raja says she hasn’t gone so away from him that he can’t differentiate her lie. He hands an apple to her. He tells Rani that Kaal and Bari Rani Maa haven’t accepted defeat, it’s important for him to stay here. She can’t let him leave this place. Rani questions who has stopped him here. Raja replies she has. He won’t forgive himself if he leaves, and something happens to him. She isn’t angry with moon, why she didn’t break her fast then. They had promised to fast for each other. Rani asks if he forgot her, and the love which bound them in it? There is no needs of promises or rituals anymore. It starts to rain, Rani covers herself up while Raja takes his shirt off to drape her with it. Rani turns to leave but slips, Raja holds her in his arms. Raja requests Rani to let this rain take away all her hatred and anger for him, Rani leaves without replying.
Bindu was watching Raja’s photo in the room. Bari Rani Maa says merely watching a photo won’t change destiny. Bindu wonders how she must do it. Bari Rani Maa says in every game you must beat your competitor. Rani’s stubbornness and ego is her strength, if Raja follows Bindu’s instructions Rani would herself leave him.

She wakes Raja up, then watches the cut on his leg. She sucks the poison off Raja’s bruise as he pants and finally stops breathing.
Meenu comes there, then goes to bring doctor. A servant tells Bari Rani Maa he left a snake there, it must have bitten by now. Bari Rani Maa thinks now Raja would return to her. Meenu was shocked to hear from Meenu, and guess at once whose hands must be behind this attack. She wouldn’t let them play with her granddaughter.
Rani drags Raja on a hand trolley, her feet bleeding badly. The trolley stops at a stone, white floss comes out of his mouth. Rani runs to him concerned.
