Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 18th March 2016: The episode starts when Shubhrasi looks sadly at Drupad’s things. Ashoka enters. She tells to leave and not to come near. She says to kill me the way you killed Drupad. He kneels down before her and says ask your heart once can I kill him. I won’t forget those who kill Drupad. A new chapter will start. Drupad’s death will not go in vain. He will get justice. (see: Chakravarti Ashok Samrat 17 Mar. 2016.)
Mahamatya thinks Ashoka is still not here. The bell rang. Ashoka and Kaurvaki enter. Bindu says I am happy you respected time. Ashoka says I will never make you ashamed. Bindu says he is ashamed because you killed your brother. Sushim, Siamak, and Helena ask Bindu to punish the traitor. Bindu gives the chance to Ashoka to speak. Ashoka says you have to follow raj-dharma as he is unable to prove his innocence. Charu and Sushim are relieved.

Bindu is disappointed to see him without proof. Ashoka says why Samrat Bindusar is feeling pensive on punishing the criminal. Since when did you act partial in doing justice? Charu tells him to stay in limits. Bindu says he cannot describe his pain in words. He still hopes if his son! Ashoka points out that nobody accepts him to be his son. He is Daasi-putra. (check: CAS All Episodes.)
Everyone was quiet. He said he had no idea Magadh’s Samrat is weak. Bindu walked angrily toward him and raised his sword. Ashoka stopped him and said his last wish is to die with this arrow and takes it out. Sushim asks why this drama. Ashoka says just the way Drupad was shot dead; he also wants the same.
Samrat keeps the sword and takes bow and arrow and shoots towards Ashoka. But arrow changes direction. Bindu looked shocked. Ashoka picks it. Bindu asks what it means. Ashoka calls the arrow proof of his innocence. It isn’t miracles that he is alive or father failed. It isn’t the ordinary arrow. It is the same arrow I shot yesterday. It didn’t hurt Drupad. He says I did shoot the arrow, but it went against me because someone who are against me. There was someone who wanted to hurt father.
Sushim says no one will believe it. Bindu tells Ashoka to speak. He said he was blamed for no reason. He had no proof of his innocence. The truth is Satyamev Jayate. Sadly, someone inside the palace is plotting against me. The princess of the enemy state is doing everything to save me. He says the arrow was not enough proof. Sushim asks if he got to know something. Ashoka says he will tell everything. He went to weapon house.Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 18th March 2016
Flashback starts, experts explains Ashoka that this arrow is used to create illusion and kill people. Magadh doesn’t cheat. They are made where people cheat others. Flashback ends.
Ashoka says such arrows are made in Unan. Helena asks proof. How it proofs, Ashoka didn’t shoot it. Ashoka shares he went to the room where the arrow was kept. He shows an arrow to everybody which was shot at Drupad. Raj vaid shares that entire arrow was poisoned. If someone even touches on lips, he may die. Such arrows are only made and used in Unan. Everyone looks at Helena. Siamak is highly tensed.
