Today's episode was also good.
Many things happened. I am listing point wise. :)
As we know already from the God Track update, same thing happened...>>>
Sharif ud din intercepts the letter which Man Singh sends to TodarMal in Agra and kills the spy of Man Singh. Man Singh wanted to send the letter to TodarMal and not to Akbar as Akbar thinks Man Singh is a "gaddar".
He also informs Mirza Hakim about Man Singh that he is still loyal to Akbar. Hakim and Sharif plan to use Man Singh as much as possible and to eliminate him later...
Voiceover says Salim has returned to Sultanate after taking the necessary provisions, but he was not shown in the episode today.
Akbar is on bed for 2 months. No one knows what has happened to him. HB goes to Ajmer Sharif to pray for Akbar. Jodha and all Hakims are tending to Akbar . Akbar regains consciousness suddenly, and despite pleadings of Jodha and Hakims decide to first meet his aawam.
Jodha takes Akbar outside to the aawaam. But he sees that no one is happy and prices of items are sky rocketing. Also, the aawaam expresses displeasure after seeing Akbar.!
Akbar holds DEK and talks that he has to do some necessary arrangements for control the situation.
Jodha prays to Kanha and cries before him to help Akbar and the Sultanate. Akbar comes from behind and says that there is no need to pray to Kanha as there is no God, no Kanha, no Allah, because if God exists then how can a God see his people dying ?
Akbar leaves.Another scene before Kanha. Aram Bano comes to meet Jodha. A tender scene. :) Jodha decides to use her position of MUZ now for the betterment of her people of Sultanate.
Ruqs decides to sent a women who was suffering from a disease out of palace. Jodha intervenes and says she can be sent to the Shifa Khana(hospital) also. Why to throw her out ? Ruqs says, ok i agree with you, but what if other catch this disease. ?. :-P
This was a nice confrontation. There was a major improvement in the interaction of Jodha and Ruqs. Both were fine. :))
I am sure this track is a LONG one. Jodha's position in Sultanate may rise now in this track. Akbar is set to introduce Din e Illahi at the end of this track. I could feel this today. I think in coming episodes we might see Akbar calling people from different religions where he will debate about religions and existence of God.
And this will be used by the conspirators as another pretext to prove that Akbar is "insulting" their religion and instigate revolt.
Lets see how much of this happens.
The episodes these days are really reminiscent of the Old Days. :)
Complete focus on JA only.!
Ignore errors. :)
