Akbar grants Salim the permission to do as he pleases with the enemy. Akbar crowns Salim the next Mughal emperor and pleads to know the truth about Fazl's death. Salim lies about his involvement and Akbar passes away peacefully. Salim is now Shehenshah-E-Hind Jehangir. Ruqaiyya leaves for the Dowager palace and Asmat urges Ghiaz Beg to speak to Jehangir for Mahmud and Ali Quli's acquittal. Jehangir meets Nisa and she asks him to be fair with Ali Quli and punish him in the same manner as he would the other prisoners.
