    Mustafa: "Welcome, Kapudan Pasha..." Barbarossa: "Thank you, Shehzadem." Mustafa: "These bows are new...they were manufactured specially....I wanted to personally measure them (test them)." Mustafa: " It has an extended range...despite this, it does not miss its target...in addition it has increased power at the tip to cause more damage." Barbarossa: "a perfect shot, but do not forget that our enemies are not unmoving targets....they will not be stationary and expect you to hit them...:

    Meanwhile, Sumbul is with Rustem: "The reason for the sudden going of Kapudan Pasha (Barbarossa) to Manisa is not known to anyone, my Pasha." Rustem: "Send word to our Sultana (Hurrem). I will investigate the matter at once and will explain to our Hunkar." Sumbul: "But he went with our Hunkar's order, my Pasha." Rustem: "In that case, it has to do with Shehzade Mustafa meeting with the ambassador...I think, he has sent Kapudan Pasha to advise him..." Sumbul: "Our Sultana is very worried...as, everybody knows that Kapudan Pasha is our Shehzades most powerful ally...he is going to fix the issue." Rustem: "Everyone knows of Kapudan Pasha's power...just like they knew of Ibrahim Pasha's...also tell our Sultana not to worry...we threw our stone to the right spot...Shehzade Mustafa has received the impact..."

    Mustafa and Barbarossa are sitting. "How is the situation with the preparations for the campaign. Has the decision been made?" Barbarossa: "The decision for war has been made my Shehzade. Preparations have been done in haste. You must have heard about Archduke Ferdinand's audacity and requests...apparently, you have heard what Lazki had to say." Mustafa: "Is this why you came?" Barbarossa: "I have come with an order to take you the Capital, my Shehzade."

    Meanwhile, Suleyman is in his room pondering...He recalls Ibrahim and Mustafa when Mustafa was a little boy. Little Mustafa says: "I will be the Padishah (King) so I do not need to learn these..." Ibrahim: "You must learn all these so that you do not make any errors." Then there is a knock and Cihangir enters, but Suleyman does not even notice him until he speaks. Cihangir: "I heard my brother Mustafa will be coming to the Capital?" Suleyman: "He will soon arrive." Cihangir: "This makes me very happy! I have missed my brother dearly."

    Meanwhile, Mahidevran has arrived to visit Shah and Hatice. Hatice and Shah meanwhile are sitting together. Hatice: "What will we tell Mahidevran?" Shah: "There is nothing to say Hatice, whatever she knows, that is all we know." Hatice: "You really do not know why Mustafa was called to the Capital?" Shah shakes her head.
    Mahidevran arrives. "For days now I have not been able to sleep...My Prince has one to the Palace...and I do not know what will happen to him there..."
    Near the Divan entrance, the Pashas have lined up. Husrev speaks to Rustem: "Rustem Pasha, is there no word from Ambassador Lazi yet? As you know, you are so interested in this issue." Rustem: "It should be actually asked of you Husrev Pasha. Seeing that Lazki has not returned to the Capital, either he has run away or, something has happened to him. In both situations it is obvious that there has been a crime!" Husrev: 'What are you accusing me of?" Suleyman Pasha: "Husrev Pasha be calm...you too Rustem Pasha...what is the need for all this? In addition, in front of me!" Rustem: "Your forgiveness, Grand Vizier Hazreleri." Mercan announces Mustafa's arrival.  Mustafa arrives and the Pashas greet him. Mustafa congratulates Suleyman Pasha. Rustem greets Mustafa and tells him that he is so honored to see him again and Mustafa says he cannot say the same for him.
    Cihangir meanwhile speaks to his father. "My brothers will be going for Sanjak..and I will stay here..My brother Mehmet tells me 'don't be sad, you can visit me whenever you want'...can I visit him Baba? You also come..we can go together...of course you will also miss them...is that not right Baba? Baba?" Suleyman: "Hm?" Cihangir: "When my brothers leave can we visit them together?" Suleyman: "Of course, we will go." Cihangir tries to wipe his father's sweat, and Suleyman is surprised. "Why are you sad?" Suleyman: "Where did you get this from?" Cihangir: "Your face has no smile at all...when I am said, I don't smile either." Suleyman hugs him: " My Cihangir, my Lion Prince,...okay now you go to your room."
    In Shah's Palace. Mahidevran: "There was no need for Kapudan Pasha to be sent to get Mustafa...Our Hunkar could just send word to my Shehzade..." Shah: "Our Hunkar saw it fit this way.." Mahidevran: "After Hurrem and Rustem being in this work...it is obvious that the outcome will not be good...and what they did to Lutfi Pasha is out in the open now."

    Hatice: "Hurrem had nothing to do with that incident Mahidevran. Our Shah Sultan wanted to divorce him herself." Mahidevran: " I am certain he deserved it...only this separation does nothing but work into Hurrem's hands...Lutfi Pasha's absence from the Divan..." Shah Sultan: "I was already late in divorcing him (I should have divorced him long ago)...I was going to have him killed....you should pray for Esmahan (who begged for his life)" Mahidevran: "Really, where is Esmahan?" Hatice: "She has gone to Dimetokaya to visit her loving father." Shah: "Your room is ready Mahidevran...you came a long way...sleep and rest for a while." Mahi: "There is no time for rest Sultanim, with your permission" Shah: "Where are you going?" Mahidevran: "I cannot afford to wait Sultanim...I am going to the Palace."
    Meanwhile, Mustafa meets Cihangir..They hug "How big you are?!" Cihangir: "You too! My father is waiting for you." Sumbul peeks in the corner.
    Sumbul goes to Hurrem's room. "Where is our Sultana?" Fahriye: 'She is in the hamam ( not really ** :( :( **)...did something happen?" Sumbul: "Go send word at once! Shehzade Mustafa has come and is with our Hunkar!" Fahriye: 'We know that...but why did he come, have you found anything out?" Sumbul shakes his head...
    Meanwhile, in Suleyman's room. Mustafa stands before his father who ignores him until Mustafa speaks: "Hunkarim, you sent Kapudan Pasha to Manisa to bring me..but I could not understand why you thought this was necessary..because in the moment of getting an order...if my two hands were even bleeding, I would came anyway." Suleyman's face is cold when he looks at his son. Suleyman: "I saw it fit to do this." Mustafa: "I do knot what you have been told, but nothing happened with the discussions with the ambassador to trouble you...I did not meet with him alone anyway...Lala was with me..The Ambassador wanted hep from me for peace...I sent him away telling him that only our mighty Hunkar can decide about peace or war." Suleyman: "It is not what you said, Mustafa...Why meet with the enemy's ambassador? How dare you?"
    Meanwhile, Matrakci, Barbarossa, and Bali Bey are together. Barbarossa: "I do not know what decision our Hunkar has made but seeing that he has wanted to say his decision personally, the situation is serious.." Matrakci: "It is apparent, after this decision that he (Hunkar) thinks our Shehzade can revolt." Bali: "That is the important thing, Nasuh Efendi, how could this kind of thing enter his mind?" Barbarossa: "It is apparent who is behind this incident...they probably sent Lazki specially for this to Manisa." Bali: "I investigated my Pasha, but nothing came out of it...and Lazki has escaped to his country instead of returning to the Palace." Matrakci: "What is the need for investigation my Bey...we know who did it...this is Rustem's work..." Barbarossa: "He was the one who told our Hunkar of the situation anyway...we need to talk about this detail because the way it is going it does not look good!"
    Meanwhile, Mustafa speaks to the Sultan: "I did not know the ambassador was going to come, Hunkarim...it happened very suddenly...he insisted on seeing me and I wanted to tell him his limits personally (tell him off)" Suleyman: "I warned you many times...you will comply with the rules and customs I said...you will not even take a single step without asking me, I said...but this is the third time you haven't listened!" Mustafa: "I only wanted to serve this mighty empire, Hunkarim...I am asking you for forgiveness for my mistakes...believe me I did not want to make you upset." Suleyman: "I do not doubt your good intentions...you will make mistakes of course...work so that you can learn the necessary lessons from these mistakes." Mustafa: "Believe me, I know...from now on I will be more careful." Suleyman: "Great...now let us speak of why I called you...as you are aware, I have taken the decision for war on Budin...the preparations are going on...With God's permission we will go on the road." Mustafa: "If I could take part in your victory, I would be honored." Suleyman: "You will stay here Mustafa, in the Capital...you will be the Istanbul Guardian. My Grand Vizier Suleyman Pasha will be Anadolu Guardian." Mustafa: "As you see fit, Hunkarim." Suleyman: "In addition, when we return from the campaign, not to Manisa but you will go to Amasya...because I hve appointed you as the Amasya Sanjak Bey."
    Meanwhile,  Mahdevran arrives in the harem and Afife and Gulfem greet her. Afife tells her that Mustafa is still with the Sultan...Mahidevran insists she must see her son. Mahidevran sees Fahriye looking down from the balcony...
    Back in Suleyman's room. Mustafa: "Of course I am not one to discuss your decisions of course, but I am curious...what is the reason for this appointment...if it is punishment because I met with the ambassador..." Suleyman: "Do not act on your emotions Mustafa! This is not a punishment for you! As you know, Amasya Sanjak  because of its proximity to the Safavid Empire and the Black sea is a more important sanjak....You will be the guardian of this empire's east side..." Mustafa: "I thought my brother Mehmet was going there...did you not make that decision?" Suleyman: "Mehmet has no experience with a Sanjak...and you have been for years in Manisa...you have a lot of experience...so much so, that you put yourself in my place and even give decisions!" Mustafa: "Hunkarim..." Suleyman: "This much is enough! You may leave." Mustafa: "Hunkarim...before leaving for Sancak in the gardens we were practicing swords and you said to me...Mustafa recalls what he says: "When you grow, you lose your innocence Mustafa...how sad right?" Mustafa: "I did not know then....but now understand what you meant that day.... I have grown and I have lost my innocence."
    Mahidevran and Gulfem arrive outside in the hall and Mercan says that Mustafa is still inside. Mustafa then exits and he says that she should send word to Manisa to send her personal items...that they will stay here while the Sultan is away for the war and that afterwards they will go to Amasya as he has been appointed Amasya Sanjak Bey.
    Outside Mustafa is walking in the gardens when Yahya comes but Mustafa asks him to stop and Yahya wonders what could have happened...
    Mahidevran rushes to Hurrem's room and Sumbul is there. Sumbul says that she cannot be seen...and Mahidevran says of course, with what face would she come in front of me. Then she says: "May God curse you Hurrem and the day you came to this palace" Gulfem tries to calm her down but Mahidevran says: "I cannot do this anymore, it is enough already." Gulfem: "One day justice will prevail" Mahidevran: "Because of her my son is being exiled." Mahidevran: "Tell your Sultana that she will not get away with this. God is witness that the end is near for her and for those who serve her!"
    Back in the Divan, Suleyman Pasha has arrived and informs the men (Rustem, Matrakci, Barbarossa, Bali Bey) that Mustafa has been appointed Amasya Sanjak Bey, and will be guardian of Istanbul, and about himself going to Anadolou. Barbarossa says: "My Pasha what kind of decision is this? Our Shehzade is not at fault. I told you about the situation." Rustem: "It does not fall to us to question the Sultan's decisions, Kapudan Pasha." Barbarossa: "Rustem Pasha...who are you to warn me? When you were cleaning out the horses' muck, I was on the sea...how dare you speak to me this way! " Rustem: "Don't look at the past...look at right now...I am the Sultan's Kubbe Vizier, and closest Groom (son in law) you cannot speak to me this way." Barbarossa: "Even if you were the Grand Vizier, what use for you? You do not have even an atoms worth to me...without the women who support you, you are nothing." Bali Bey: "Pasha, if you wish, lets go and don't get more angry." Barbarossa: "We will leave, but there is one more thing: May everyone know and hear that the Shehzade having a throne in our hearts and in that of our soldiers...on matter where he goes...he will be the most powerful claimant to the throne."
    Mustafa arrives to Shah's palace. Mustafa recalls Ibrahim's words: "When the time comes, you will get on that throne Mustafa...otherwise, the throne and the power will go under Hurrem Sultan's command. Are you going to agree to this?" Mustafa in the present says to himself out loud: "I do not agree with this, and will never agree to it."

    Hatice meanwhile is talking to Shah: "Mahidevran was very stressed...I have never seen her this way." Shah: "Be as it may, she has no choice but to accept...do not try to help her make a mistake." Hatice: "Hurrem has made you scared too, it appears." Shah: "Having you all around me...Hurrem will keep winning." Hatice: "So it is our fault?" Hatice notices Mustafa...they go rush to see him...

    Meanwhile, Suleyman is sitting in his room with Mehmet and Selim in front of him. Beyazid arrives. Suleyman: "Where were you?" Beyazid: "Forgive me, Hunkarim." Suleyman: "We are going for Budin. Mehmet, you are coming with me." Suleyman: "I am honoured, Hunkarim." Suleyman: "Selim, you will not join...beyazid, neither will you because you are both going for Sanjak." Beyazid: "Me too, Hunkarim?" Suleyman: "Yes" Beyazid: "I will never embarrass you, Hunkarim." Suleyman: "I am pleased with you, May God be pleased with you too." Suleyman looks at Mehmet: " Mehmet, after the campaign you will go for sanjak, because your sanjak has changed...
    Meanwhile, Hatice arrives in the garden where Mustafa is. They greet each other. "What are you doing here? What is wrong?" Mustafa: "He was loyal to our Hunkar, did not betray him...but what did I see...jsut for his love for me...he killed him..." Hatice: "What are you talking about?" Mustafa: "I see Sultanim...my future step by step coming closer...They killed Ibrahim Pasha...now they see me fit for the same destiny...I know this." Hatice: "Mustafa, do not scare me...tell me.." Mustafa: "I am exiled to Amasya...our Hunkar has removed me from his heaven...now I am in hell."
    At night, Sumbul is with Seker. Sumbul tells him that Mehmet is going to the throne Sanjak and only God knows, but it is obvious who is the heir...Seker asks where Mustafa has been appointed...
    In the harem, Afife tells them that Hurrem Sultan as handed out sweets for her sons being appointed for Sanjaks...the girls gossip "Hurrem Sultan has won" "Who knows the condition of Mahidevran Sultan" "This is pretty bad for Mustafa..." Fahriye tells them to be quiet. "How dare you speak about our Shehzades?" Mercan enters the kitchens...Sumbul: "It is like heaven seeing your face...come have some sweets, sit down a bit..." Mercan asks if he has work to do...always idling.
    Mehmet meanwhile is sitting in Hurrem's room when Mihrimah arrives. Mehmet says: "I was happy going to Amasya, why this changed, I cannot understand." Mihrimah: "Our Hunkar father saw it fit this way...obviously he has a reason. - and on top of that you are the throne's heir, what else could you want?" Mehmet: "I am not the heir, Mihrimah, Mustafa is.What am I going to say to him now? How can I look at his face? " Mihrimah: "You keep your spirits up, my brother...everyone knows how pure your heart is. Mustafa is the same...and this is not your decision. " Mehmet: "Whatever it be, this is unfair. A great unfairness." Mihrimah: "One day if Mustafa got on the throne what do you think will happen? Hmm? I will tell you. First he will kill your brothers. Then he will exile me and my mother. " Mehmet: "No. My brother would never do that...he would not kill his brothers!" Mihrimah: " Today he won't yes. But tomorrow no one knows...do not forget the rules and customs..." Mehmet: 'Do not talk like our mother, Mihrimah! Anyway, they say she is behind this decision!" Mihrimah: "Mehmet, I am now a mother...all the things our mother said and did, I now understand...do not accuse her. Her only purpose is to protect her children. That is all she wants."

    Mahidevran goes to her son in his room. Mahidevran: "If your soul is burning, mine is burning a thousand times...but we cannot allow this fire to consume us." Mustafa: "If a human loses someone he loves...his heart burns fpr forty days...every day...but for some it burns for the rest of their lives...I don't care about my sanjak...I did not lose my Sanjack, I lost my father..." Mahidevran: "This is because of Hurrem" Mustafa: "The only reason is not Hurrem, she can say what she wants, or do what she wants...if our Hunkar did not listen to her, then she never would have prevailed." Mahi: "Mustafam, look at me, look at my face.. from now on it will be just me and you...not Hatice Sultan, not Shah Sultan...they are all worried about their own futures...we have no other friends besides each other...we will stop Hurrem the snake."
    Rustem is with Suleyman: "Mehmet Pasha is about to arrive to go to Budin...with God's permission we will teach Ferdinand a lesson." Suleyman: "God Willing...if there is nothing else, you may leave." Rustem: "There is one more thing...When Suleyman Pasha came to inform us of your decision, Hizir Hayreddin Pasha was not happy with your decision...he said wherever Mustafa is, he will be the most powerful heir to the throne." Suleyman: 'It is true, Pasha...he is the oldest son so the closest...whatever I say doesn't change this...but only God knows the future." Rustem: "Of course Hunkarim, only, how can anyone dare to object to your decisions...they also threatened me..for informing you about the ambassador incident." Mihrimah arrives with her baby...Mihrimah: "I am troubling you." Suleyman: 'What trouble? My moon and sun!" Mihrimah: "I wanted you to see her before leaving."

    Meanwhile, Hatice is scolding Husrev and Shah: "How could we be so blind?! We watch as Mustafa is getting completely ruined...You stopped me so many times! But your doings did not work!" Shah: "Now is not the time to talk about these, we have to think about from now on -" Hatice: "From now on it will be disaster! Can't you see our situation? We all lost! All!" Husrev: "Sultanim! The soldiers have a saying 'if we have a sword in hand, we have not lost." Hatice: 'What do we do?" Husrev: "We are going to pull back, Sultanim...in order to fight again we have to pull back...this time Hizr Hayreddin Pasha will be with us." There is a knock and Mehmet comes...Shah: "Mehmet, my lion Shehzade" Mehmet greets the other two. "I came to see Mustafa." 


    PART 2


    Meanwhile, Mihrimah leaves her father's room and sees Bali Bey. It is awkward. She shows him her baby and he says the baby is really beautiful. Then Rustem enters. Bali Bey greets her. Then he asks "Where are you coming from at this time of night?" Bali Bey: "I had some work to take care of" Rustem: "I know your work...the pubs are up and running again." Bali Bey: "Good night, Sultanim" Bali Bey leaves. Rustem: "Our Hunkar gives Bali Bey more worth than he deserves...the man's mind and thoughts are on women." Mihrimah: "It is late already Humashah is sleepy let's go."
    Meanwhile, Mahidevran speaks to her son: "I understand your anger and frustration...Hurrem crashed upon us like a dark cloud...but I promise you that cloud will disperse, my son...and the sun will come out again." Mustafa: "To give your life in good works for God is enough I don't know...but for our Hunkar even to pay the price with life is not enough." Mahidevran: "Bite your tongue...take this possibility out of your mind! The only thing we need is patience, because you are the future of this empire...Sooner or later everyone is going to bow....until that day, I pray that God gives us the strength to bear...because our way is a long and difficult one."
    Mehmet arrives. Mahidevran leaves and Mustafa asks if Mehmet is alone, and where his other siblings are. Mehmet says that they wanted to see him very much, but he wished to speak to him alone. "Our father called us and told us about the Sanjak issue." Mustafa: "Our Hunkar saw it fit this way. We cannot into questioning it." Mehmet: "Of course, " Mehmet: "Believe me, I am very sad...I did not even know I would get appointed to Manisa." Mehmet: "You were appointed to Manisa?" Mehmet: "I thought you knew..." Mahidevran has been listening outside the door and is shocked...Mustafa: "May it be for the best...I congratulate you." Mehmet: "Forgive me, I swear I thought our Hunkar told you!" Mustafa: "Don't worry Mehmet, this situation has nothing to do with you." Mehmet: "If that is the case, then why this condition of yours...What is this coldness? From the time you came, you are not even looking at my face. What happened to "no one can get in between us'? Mustafa: "Go back to the palace Mehmet. Your mother will worry." Mehmet leaves...
    In the morning in Mihrimah's palace, Mustafa has visited Mihrimah and her baby. "She is beautiful and looks like like you..." Mihrimah: "May she be fortunate..." The maid comes and takes the baby and Mustafa tells his sister: "The last time I saw you was at your wedding...in all my life, the most beautiful bride I had ever seen...and the most hopeless " Mihrimah: "Those days are gone...that Mihrimah is not here anymore. You will never see that Mihrimah again." Mustafa: " I know this very well, believe me, very well...if you don't change your life, your life will change you..." They hug and Rustem arrives. Rustem: "Forgive me, I did not know you were here." Mustafa: "I came to visit my sister...is there a problem" Rustem: "Never! You have honoured us with your presence."
    Mahidevran arrives at the Sultan's door where Mercan is. "Send word to him that I have come." Mercan goes in...

    Suleyman is reading and Mercan enters. He informs him and Suleyman thinks and then says she may enter. She enters, and he tells her to come close. When he asks how she is, she says she is not well, and that "What mother would be fine if her son is exiled"
    Meanwhile, Mustafa, Rustem and Mihrimah sit together. Mihrimah: "You have made us very happy that you are staying with us during the campaign, my Shehzade. I trust you more than myself." Mustafa: "After the last incident, I would rather stay in Istanbul" Rustem: "And when I go, I will be rest assured (you will be here and I won't worry about the safety of my wife and kids) I won't have to look behind"
    Meanwhile Suleyman says to Mahidevran: "What insolence! Don't you know you cannot dispute my decisions." Mahidevran: 'Hunkarim, forgive me. That is not my intention, I am just trying to understand. Mustafa is your son...and I know you love him very much." Suleyman: "Of course, do you doubt that?" Mahidevran: "I am now one who doubts everything...we have lived through such things that everything comes into my mind...I am not saying my Shehzade doesn't have mistakes...which Shehzade doesn't make mistakes...At one time, you were in Manisa...I am witness to all that you did there...but you never betrayed Sultan Selim...it did not even cross your mind..."
    Suleyman: 'Why are you bringing this to the discussion? This has nothing to do with my decision." Mahidevran: "In that case why...strangle your child in grief in this decision...he thinks he has lost you...Allah is my witness that my son is loyal to you...and even more than you can imagine...don't do this to him...do not break his heart, please, Hunkarim..." Suleyman: "I am saying this to reassure you: neither have I lost my son, not has he lost me...this is not an exile...or a punishment at all...Amasya is one of the most important Sanjaks...do not forget that my grandfather Sultan Beyazid Han made a Sanjak there..." Mahidevran: 'I am begging you, please rethink your decision."
    Meanwhile, Mustafa and Rustem are walking in Mihrimah's Palace' hallways.Mustafa: "I know you are behind this incident." Rustem: "Forgive me, Shehzadem, I do not now what you are talking about." Mustafa: "You sent that ambassador to me, after that, you poisoned the Sultan against me." Rustem: "Never, my shehzade, would I dare to do things behind your back?Whoever said whatever to you, is lying." Mustafa: "I warned you Rustem. I said you are now the Family's son in law, do not get involved in these issues." Rustem: "Shehzadem" Mustafa: "Shut up and listen to me! Whoever you are serving, tell them they should not think this doing will go unanswered!"
    Meanwhile, Suleyman tells Mahidevran:"My decisions are final. For everyone. Now you may leave." Mahidevran: "It is apparent, that the words I said were of no use. It is obvious who is behind your decision." Suleyman: 'What do want to say?"  Mahidevran: "I am talking about the gossip that has reached my ears, Hunkarim...from what they say is that Hurrem Sultan for years stopped Mehmet from going...as you know our Shehzade is twenty...everyone says this is why - to send him to Manisa...they are right" Suleyman: "Get out at once...I do not want to see you again." Mahidevran almost faints but she motions to Mercan that she is alright when he asks...
    Barbarossa is talking to Mustafa: "This appointment might worry you but it is not the end of the world.." Mustfa: "Kapudan Pasha the way it is going, doesn't look good...being by my side no matter how proud it makes me...but it also worries me." Barbarossa: "What does this mean?" Mustafa: "I do not want anyone to get hurt because of me..especially you." Barbarossa: "If it is requires, let it be! (he says a saying to Mustafa "If the head goes, the feet cannot walk - as in if Mustafa goes, so what is the use of them staying behind?"
    Later Mahidevran is speaking to Hatice and Shah. "Hurrem is everywhere..it is not even possible to meet with our Hunkar privately anymore....her eyes are always on him...maybe from now on, we cannot complain to our Hunkarim..." Hatice: 'What were you expecting? In your outstretched hands (beggin) you got Rustem and in the other hand her (Hurrem). Sad.." Shah: "If you work from your own head, this is what you get." Mahidevran: 'The issue at hand is my son's future! Do you expect me to sit quiet and wait?" Shah: "Are you going to tell us who Mustafa is? Before you, we are hurt by all this" Mahidevran: "In that case, help, Sultanim...we have to do something!" Shah: "Our Hunkar will go for war soon...until that day no one will do anything...we will then sit and make a decision...did you understand Hatice?" Hatice nods...Shah: "Good..." Shah leaves...
    Mahidevran: "What's going to happen Sultanim? Are we going to wait and do as Shah Sultan says?" Hatice: "I do not know Mahidevran" Mahidevran: "Do not take this wrong, but Shah Sultan has long accepted defeat...do not permit her to stop us." Hatice: "What does you mean?" Mahi: "She had swore to help you take revenge for Ibrahim Pasha...but she did nothing...she could not...our Pasha's blood is still left...and after Lutfi Pasha's firing she has fear in her eyes...she has turned back...they beat you and threw you into the woods, now they are driving Mustafa away...if we do nothing they will get into my child's blood...does your heart agree to this?"

    Back with Barbarossa and Mustafa...Suleyman arrives. He calls out to Barbarossa who steps forward: "How are the preparations for the campaign." Barbarossa: "Almost finished...Mehmet Pasha has also written, in a few days he will be in Budin..." Suleyman moves closer. "Be careful who you talk to and about what, Pasha...especially, when you speak about the heir to MY throne...because everything comes to my ears...." Barbarossa: "Thank God, I have no secret hidden from you, Hunkarim, after this latest incident, there are people who say Mustafa has fallen in your eyes...I simply warned them...I did so, that no one can get you to be angry with your son for meaningless words."
    Meanwhile, in Budin...Isabella is being told that Ferdinand has come and that soldiers are giving their lives defending...he says that they do not know if they can continue defending...Isabella tells him they must - they have no other choice. Martonizzi says of course, until the Ottoman protector comes...Isabella says let us pray that they come on time...
    Mihrimah meanwhile is outside in the gardens when Bali Bey comes. He greets her, asks how she is. She asks if there is news from the Palace. He says no not to worry it is nothing to worry about...
    Rustem meanwhile is telling Gulbahar to keep her eyes and ears open while he is away and to not leave Mihrimah alone and tell him what she does day to day. He sees Bali Bey talking to her in the gardens...Mihrimah is talking to Bali Bey about how despite her brothers Selim and Beyazid's constant fighting, they will now miss each other..Bali remarks "yes Sultanim...sometimes separation and distance makes a person realize the worth of those he loves" Rustem arrives..."What are you doing here, Bali Bey?" Bali: "Our Hunkar has ordered that you go ahead of us, and wait at the place, Sofia where the Anadolu Beylerbey will be waiting for you. We will come later." Mihrimah says she wishes to see the Shehzades before they leave and Rustem tells her he will follow immediately. Then he turns to Bali Bey: I  have seen you enough here at my palace." Bali: "What does this mean, what are you accusing me of? " Rustem: "Stay away from my palace."
    Meanwhile, Husrev is bidding farewell to Hatice. "I am going but my mind will stay with you...I am begging you not to do anything in anger..." Hatice: "Don't worry, I am not alone...I will stay with Shah -i-huban." Husrev: "Ali agha will stay with you as well." He calls Ali agha who greets them. Husrev says that he is one of his most trusted men...he can trust him with whatever matter she has.
    Sumbul meanwhile tells the cariyes to hurry to go off to the different harems of Selim and Beyazid...Afife arrives and asks if the preparations are done, and Sumbul says that if it hasn't finished he has, he is so tired. Afife replies that if he hadn't complained for once, she would have been surprised. She tells him that Hurrem has gone with her sons to the Sultan's room and that he should go to the gardens to oversee the agha's preparations. Sumbul stops her before she goes and asks her if Mustafa and Mahidevran will be staying in the Palace while they are here. Afife replies where else would they go. He says Hurrem Sultan is a bit worried for her safety with them being around and Afife said that is why we are here to stop incidents from happening, that until the Sultan returns not a hair on anyone's head will be harmed...

    Meanwhile, the Pashas have assembled and Ebusuud is telling them that he spoke in detail with the judges and that at this time of war they have taken all precautions and hopefully there will be no problems...Hadim says that this is really good and that as Mustafa will be present in Istanbul, he will as always conduct inspections and so on. Ebusuud comments that ever since Lutfi has gone, the pubs and brothels have started up again and Hadim says that he will take care of it once he returns so that while they are away no problems arise...Husrev remarks that three thousand Janissaries have been left in Istanbul so if there is a revolt, how will the Shehzade handle it.Hadim replies that they will keep one eye here and no one should worry. Barbarossa says that he will be on the sea and that if anything happens God forbid, he will come like the wind. Then he tells Taslicali to be careful and do not separate from Mustafa's side, and that if anything happens that he should immediately send word. Taslicali respns that he should not worry, but adds that in fact, he is woried about Mahidevran she is very angry. Barbarossa tells him to speak to her and not to let her fall into any errors otherwise he cannot protect Mustafa...Barbarossa looks worried...
    Meanwhile, Suleyman leaves from bidding his family goodbye in his room. Shah prays for the Sultan and Mihrimah tells Cihangir to go to her mother and that she will come shortly. Mahidevran asks if her room is ready and Afife says yes, if she needs anything they will fix the problem. Mihrimah says she thought Mahi would stay with Shah and Mahidevran says that wherever her son is, she will stay there. Hatice says does she have a problem and Mihrimah says no, she shoudl come join if she wants too, so that they can all meet every once in a while, because she will also be here at the palace with her mother...she will not leave her mother alone because as they all know whenever there is a campaign...something bad always happens to her. Hatice asks "What do you mean? Who are you saving your mother from? From us?" Mihrimah replies: "It doesn't matter from whom, if anyone takes advantage of our Hunkar being away and tries anything with my mother. May God be my witness that, I will not take this quietly, in this room, everyone will get hurt. Everyone." Then she leaves.
    Hatice: "Do you see? How she threatens us. How sad." Shah: "Hatice, let us go to the Palace, Afife Hatun...you are responsible for the Palace...until our Hunkar returns I do not want a single incident." Afife: 'Don't worry Sulanim"
    Meanwhile, Mustafa is standing before Suleyman and his brothers, and the Pashas stand on one side. "Your war be blessed, your sword sharp!" Suleyman: "Ameen. The Capital is in your safe keeping, May Allah help you" They hug. Suleyman, the Pashas, Mustafa's brothers, everyone leaves...
    In Budin, Isabella's baby cries, as she paces back and forth. Martunizzi arrives: "Queen Isabella...Thank goodness Mehmet Pasha and 20 thousand have come to our rescue..." Isabella thanks God. Martunizzi: "Mehmed Pasha place a naval blockade against the soldiers...Ferdinanad is caught between two fires..." isabella: "Thank God we have been saved...we have been saved..."

    In the army camp, in the Sultan's tent at night, Husrev tells the Sultan of the news of Mehmed's arrival to the seige of Budin. Suleyman asks that a messenger be sent to Mehmed Pasha to learn word from him personally. Ebusuud speaks up and says there is a Church of Mary in Budin, that they could make it into a mosque and they could pray there... Suleyman responds that Budin has not entirely been taken yet, so they can't be making such decisions but that it is a good thing they can pray there together...Ebusuud oraises Suleyman, and Suleyman tells everyone to leave except Mehmet. "Since we have left the Palace your face does not smile at all, why are you sad like this?"
    Meanwhile, Sumbul rushes with a letter through the harem to Hurrem's room where Mihrimah is with her child. Sumbul, the issue is important...Some news has come from Konya that Shehzade Selim has become ill...Mihrimah opens the letter and reads. Fahriye asks if it is important...Mihrimah says she does not know, but that he has asked my mother to come at once.
    Mehmet meanwhile speaks to his father. "I am thinking about your decision Hunkarim. For years my brother has ruled there, everyone loves Musafa there..." Suleyman: "They will love you too" Mehmet: 'Hunkarim, I - forgive me...I...I feel like I am taking my brother's displaced this way..." Suleyman: "The soul wishes that a human should not hurt a fly even, do not make a mistake, break no hearts...but this is impossible Mehmet..especially someone who rules a land like me, I cannot make everyone happy...I have appointed you...because I have full faith in you...you will do well..just like Mustafa...this state is more important than everyone and everything...there is no place for personal struggles in state affairs..You should not show weakness...if you hurt, they will shoot you right there..."
    Mihrimah enters her room and Sumbul asks if she spoke to Hurrem and she says yes, and that Hurrem will be leaving for Konya in the morning. Sumbul prays for Selim...
    Meanwhile in he Janissary camp, a Janissary named Ilyas approaches Mehmet "If you permit, I have something important to present to you" Another Janissary tells him to know his place and Ilyas says he will not take too much of his time. Mehmet allows him. Mehmet asks what the issue is, and the man says that the Sultan has appointed him to Manisa and Mehmet says "I know what the soldiers are saying amongst themselves...that Shehzade Mustafa has been treated unfairly, and I am being put in his place...are you one of them too?" Ilyas says: "No, Shehzadem...who dares to say such things, but I wanted to say I am very happy about your appointment...becuase I will be staying in Manisa when the war is over." Mehmet: "God Willing I will be worthy of this love for me. What is your name?" Ilyas: "I am your servant Ilyas" something falls when he bows and Mehmet asks what it is. "Shehzadem, it is a horse, it is not finished, but when it is, it will be a horse." Mehmet: 'Then, when it is finished, I would like to see it."
    The next day, we see a fake Hurrem walking to the carriage and Mihrimah asks why Fahriye isn't going and Fahriye says that is what she wanted, and Sumbul says he has taken every precaution for her protection.

    Meanwhile, Yahya enters the Sultan's room where Mustafa is. Yahya informs him that Hurrem has left the Palace early in the morning, I thought you knew. Mustafa says he does not know and that where she went and Yahya says Konya. Mustafa asks why she went without his permission. Yahya says he really thought he knew about it, and that news came that Selim is unwell.
    Meanwhile, Mercan is telling Shah and the others that they have said Selim is ill. Shah asks what he has and Mercan says no...and then Mahidevran asks if the Shehzade knows and how could she just go alone like that. Mercan says she went without word. When Mustafa finds out he will be annoyed. Gulfem says: "It is her child, how could she wait? She would not be calm until she saw him. Shah says "yes, but I wish I knew about it. I would have gone with her." Hatice looks guilty....Shah asks for her carriage to be ready to go to the Palace...
    Mustafa asks Yahya to go and bring Hurrem back..Yahya says that she will refuse to come and Mustafa says that he will force her...if something happens to her on the way, how will he explain to the Sultan? There is knock and Mihrimah arrives. She is crying...she tells him that no one knows the illness, the doctors don't know and he says I would have done everything, Yahya will go get Hurrem Sultan and Mihrimah says no, Selim called her, she will not accept and she says she does not trust anyone except her...Mustafa says do not worry, Selim will be alright...
    Back in the camp, Rustem is telling Mehmet that he should not hesitate, he will do well in his Sanjak and that he will always be by his side...and his Lala will also be with him always...Mehmet says that he just doesn't want to dissapoint his fahter..a messenger arrives to give Bali Bey a message.Rustem sees the message that goes to the Bali Bey and he is troubled...Rustem tells Mehmet do not worry I will be with you...then he leaves and Ilyas approaches Mehmet: "I have finished the horse I was telling you about. I wish you to see it, if you permit." Mehmet: 'Bring it let us see what it is"
    Meanwhile, Bali Bey is in his tent, reading the letter when Rustem enters the tent. "Whose letter is that?" Bali: 'What is going on Pasha? Are you following me." Bali: "It is a personal letter. it has nothing to do with you." Rustem: 'Bali Bey..." Matrakci arrives just then and tells him that the Sultan is calling him. Matrakci asks what is going on and Bali tell shim Rustem is jealous, he thinks Mihrimah has sent the letter. Bali Bey says his brother has sent it...and Matrakci asks what he said to Rustem, and Bali Bey replies that he owes him no explanations.
    Meanwhile, Mehmet is with Ilyas. He likes the horse. Ilyas says it is not worthy of him, but if he would accept it as a gift, he would be very honoured. Mehmet accepts and asks if he ever met him before. Ilyas says no, but he saw him fighting alongside Malkocoglu once bravely. Mehmet says it was his first war, and Ilyas says that it was his too.
    Suleyman is in his tent when Rustem arrives. Suleyman asks for Bali Bey who says he is coming. Bali Bey arrives. The Pasha line up and Suleyman asks what news Mehmed Pasha has brought. Mehmed Pasha speaks up and says  that they arrived at the citadel and Ferdinand and his soldiers could not hold the door, and the citadel was about to fall on all sides then the soldiers were unleased, but Ferdinand was going to be caught, but he left his soldiers and ran away. Husrev remarks that this just like Ferdidand to do such a thing. Mehmed Pasha continues saying that they wished to meet with Isabella, but she was afraid to open the door...she is waiting for your arrival. Suleyman says that they should notify her without further ado, that he accepts to meet with her. He then congratulates Mehmed Pasha on his victory saying he can ask for anything he wants...
    Later, we see a carriage on a road in the night riding into the darkness...

    Suleyman is in his room, writing...he writes a poem to his wife Hurrem who we might not see again :( so i don't know if anyone even felt like hearing this poem...
    Isabella arrives with her baby ina carriage to see the Sultan...Bali Bey greets her. She says she has heard of Bali Bey veyr much. Bali Bey introduces them to his tent. She enters with her child and kisses the Sultan's hand. Her servant tsays that she is thankful to the Ottomans for helping them. Suleyman says that Zapolyo was loyal to them, and of course they would never leave his son Sigismund alone to face Ferdinand. She is pleased by this. Suleyman says "but why did you not let our soldiers into your palace." Isabela says that if it were not for her soldiers, they would have been already taken by Ferdinand, and that they were afraid, her baby cries and Suleyman calls for the maid to come who takes the baby away. Suleyman says after a pause "Being a Sultan over the Ottoman lands, I accept Zapolyos son Sigismund in his place as my representative, but he is too young, so when we leave Ferdinand will return... I am announcing this land as Ottoman...Budin is now under Islam's banner...I am appointing Sigusmund as prince of Erdel...From now on, everyone's life and properties are under the protection of the Ottomans...anyone who gos against this, will find me in front of them. Martinuzzi meanwhile accepts all of this...and Suleyman says until the Prince is old enough, Martinuzzi is appointed as a representative...
    Mustafa is in the Sultan's room when Mihrimah arrives...she says this letter came from Konya...Selim is very well, that he was not at all ill...that my mother did not even go to Konya...Selim does not even know about my mother going! Mustafa asks how this could happen. Mihrimah says: 'Where is my mother Shehzadem? Where is my mother?!"

    Meanwhile Shah is sitting when there is a knock and Mercan arrives..he tells her what has happened that Hurrem has not gone to Konya, no one knows where she is, and that a letter came from Selim who is not even ill at all. Shah asks if this might be Hurrem's game. Mercan says no he doesn't think so and Shah says they have to find out quickly, or else how can they explain to the Sultan?

    Mustafa says he will investigate and that perhaps the letter could be a fake...Mihrimah says why would they do that? it is obvious they trapped her mother...Mustafa asks who could dare to trap a mother of shehzades...Mihrimah says that if this is true, her mother has been missing for days...where she is, what has happened to her, no one knows we do not even know if she is alive! Mustafa tells her to go to her room and Mihrimah says if her mother is not found safe and sound before her father returns...no one will be safe from his wrath. No one. There is a knock at the door and Mahidevran enters. Mahidevran asks what is wrong and Mustafa tells her that Hurrem is lost and Mihrimah says "that is what we are wondering, Sultanim...whoever did this to my mother, will be held accountable." Then she leaves...
    Hatice is being shown outfits in her room in the palace when her sister arrives..."Welcome, i picked this, what do you say? Is it pretty? Shah asks the cariyes to leave and they do. When she is alone with her sister, Hatice asks her what happened now? Shah steps closer "Where is Hurrem?" Hatice: "Where do I know? She had gone to Konya...or did she return? " Shah: "Don't play with me...Hurrem is lost...and no one knows where she is...but you know right?" Hatice: "What are you saying...is this true?"
    Meanwhile, the Sultan and his men have stopped and Mehmet asks why, Suleyman drinks some water...Bali asks if Suleyman is alright, and Suleyman replies he is fine, he just wanted water. Rustem says if he wishes he can get him a seat...Suleyman says no, he just wantes to return to his palace as soon as he can. Rustem says that if God permits there is only a few days...Bali asks him why he looks troubled and Suleyman says that he is worried about Selim, as he still does not have word from him...Hopefully he is fine...Bali says if there was bad news they would have heard...
    Meanwhile, Afife, Sumbul and Mihrimah are worried..Sumbul says what if something happened to her? .Mihrimah says she is alive. Mihrimah asks Sumbul to find his most trusted men, they will look for her. Mihrimah says she is not going to sit around...Sumbul says "it is obvious who did this, but we cannot even ask, maybe if you ask.." Afife tells him to be quiet. Sumbul tells her not to look at him that way, how many times has she come back from almost being killed...Afife tells him yes, but today or tomorrow our Hunkar will return...he will do what is needed...Mihrimah scolds Sumbul saying how could you let this happen...especially while our enemies are around us. Sumbul says he had taken all precautions, he does not know how it happened...

    Cihangir enters and asks if there is bad news...and asks why she is so worried then...
    Mustafa asks Mahidevran if she has anything to do with this incident...Mahi says that she had no news and that she is just learning from him...Mustafa asks if she knows anything to speak up, Shah or Hatice...anything and Mahi replies that she really does not know...she has so many enemies who knows who did it, but that whoever did, may they be blessed...Mustafa asks how he will explain to the Sultan..first he is sent away from Manisa, now this happened, they will blame him! Mahidevran says that you tried your best and you even tried to stop her...and who can stop a mother whose child is ill? She adds that they even sent news to the Sultan...
    There is a knock and Taslicali arrives, he says that he is investigating...specifically the way to Konya and Mustafa tells him to act fast becuase the Sultan is coming...
    Mihrimah rushes to see Shah. Shah says she heard and is very sad, and Mihrimah says she does not believe her...and Shah asks what this means and Mihrimah says everyone knows your enmity with my mother, and then Hatice and Mahidevran...you all found an oppurtunity while our Hunkar was away to trap her! Shah tells her to watch her words and not to forget who stands before her. Mihrimah tells her she should actually not forget who stands before her! Sultan Suleyman's daughter. "Where is my mother, what did you do to her?" Hatice meanwhile hears from outside...the  conversation...Shah asks Mihrimah if she knows what she is saying...what is she accusing her of and Mihrimah says is this a lie? Are you not an enemy to my mother? For years you did not try your best to get rid of her? Especially Hatice Sultan. She tried so many times to kill her...now don't stand in front of me telling me you did not do anything. Hatice enters and shouts "Mihrimah" Mihrimah: "I was talking about you. Shah Sultan is quiet...maybe you are more brave...where is my mother...waht did you do to her?" Hatice: "How dare you interrogate me?!I owe you no explanations Mihrimah, go back to your palace at once!" Mihrimah says: "Whenever I want to leave, I will leave, no one can order me. If even a hair on my Valide is harmed, I will know it was you...I swear to you, I will burn this palace over your heads!" Shah: "This much is enough Mihrimah! It might be that I will get angry...then you will regret it..." Mihrimah: "Sultanim, you will actually be the regretful one, when our Hunkar returns - those who did this to the mother of his five children...he will not forgive this insult!" She leaves...
    In the day, Mustafa is outside in the Gardens when the Sultan is announced...he comes and they greet each other and then Mustafa says "we must talk, the matter is important." Mihrimah watches from above on the Sultan's terrace...
    Suleyman asks: "What could be this important? What happened?" Mustafa: "As you know, Hurrem Sultan went to Konya..." Suleyman: "Did something happen to Selim?" Mustafa: "No, Selim is well...only according to the news I recieved, Hurrem Sultan did not go to Konya at all..." Suleyman: "How?" Mustafa: "We are searching for her for days...no one knows where Hurrem Sultan is. SHe is lost!"
