Osman captures Suci, one of Togay’s henchmen. However, Suci is also Cerkutay’s blood brother and friend, compelling Cerkutay to save his friend, leading to the tribe believing that Cerkutay is a traitor. Cerkutay, actually serving Osman, later helps the Kayı attack Togay’s forces. Meanwhile, a recovered Malhun is sent by her father to İnegöl to ally with Nikola against Togay, although she is captured in the castle by Togay, who has allied with Nikola. Osman also captures Nikola’s ally Tekfur Aris, seeking to ally with him, although Togay delivers an ultimatum to surrender the Tekfur in exchange for Malhun.
