If we are able to conquer this castle, we can destroy the domination of the dominators one more time. When you will be the sultan one day, you will never be satisfied with what you have. Our customs tell us that the son expands the sultanate.” Malik Shah says “I swear by the name of Allah, I will perform my duty, and If I can’t do my duty, I should be beheaded with my own sword, and I may turn into a dust.”

They want to take revenge for the murder of Suleyman Shah and the captivation of Kilijarslan.” Malik Shah says “We conquered Anatolia and gave the authority of that land to Suleyman Shah but he betrayed and rose a riot among the Muslims that is why he had been beheaded and we have imprisoned his son Kilijarslan because he also disobeyed orders.” Then Malik Shah asks “Haji Nizamulmulk, What do you think about this?” Nizamulmulk says “The Turkmen are not responsible for this attack. The Batinis are trying to create a conflict among the Muslims so that we fight against each other.” Malik Shah says “Tajulmulk is saying that the evidence is obvious and you are saying that there is secret behind this.” Tajulmulk asks “Nizamulmulk, I respect your doubt but I want to know about it from you in front of my sultan.” Nijamulmulk says “This is a secret.” Malik Shah says “Okay, bring the sibling of Kilijarslan for investigation.” Tapar says “I want to do it, my sultan.” Then the Senators leave.

On the other hand, Terken Khatun is telling the midwives “I don’t trust in any midwives of the palace that is why I have called you from my homeland Karahanli.” In the meantime, Seferiye Khatun comes and says “Terken Khatun, why have you called these midwives since we have better midwives?

I am Sanjar. You asked me once my name.” Turna says “It’s over now. I am not interested now.” Sanjar gives Turna her purse and starts walking smilingly.

On the other hand, Sanjar has come to Nizamulmulk and asks “Why are trying to disturb the Turkmen since it is clear that the Batinis have tried to kill our Sultan?” Nizamulmulk says “Our aim is to protect Jerusalem and conquer Constantinople. What you have seen now we have been trying to do this for 40 years. The state decides to look back hundred years past and forward to a hundred years future. Sultan has decided to interrogate Kilijarslan’s sibling about the attack. Tapar has been ordered to bring him and you will accompany him.” Sanjar says “Mr. Nizamulmulk, the more you try to keep me away from my brother and father, the more my destiny will work to unite me with them.” Nizamulmulk says “This is your last duty here.

We will not let you take anyone from our tribe.” Then they raise their swords. In the meantime, Eljin Khatun comes and asks “Why have you come here?” Tapar says “There was a man of Suleyman Shah among the attackers. We have come here to take Kilijarslan’s sibling with us because Malik Shah wants to interrogate her.” Eljin Khatun says “I am the sister of Kilijarslan. Malik Shah knows well that if we wanted to kill him, we would invite him for war. This is certainly a slander.” A soldier says “They have come to take you so that they can imprison you too, Eljin Khatun.” Sanjar says to the soldier “If you try to speak anymore, you won’t be able to utter even a word.” Then Sanjar says “Malik Shah doesn’t want war. He just wants to interrogate you.” Eljin Khatun says to her soldiers “Wait here for me. Nobody will follow me.” Then Eljin Khatun sets out with Sanjar and Tapar.
