On the other hand, Adham was hoping that this journey to Ajmer would be the last for the emperor and that Adham could be the next emperor. They had an eventful journey where they were also attacked, attacked by a Rajput who did not like the fact that Jodha was married to a Mughal emperor. This led to Jodha and Akbar staying in the same tent for security reasons, but jodha was not convinced and when Jalal came inside and took off her chunni, she was shocked and spoke out. But she became very embarrassed when it turned out that Jalal was doing this since there was a snake, and Jalal used this opportunity to tease her about this later as well.
On the return journey, Jalal wanted to do some hunting. However, Jodha did not like this hunting of innocents, and replaced the powder in his gun, so that when a tiger attacked them, Jalal was without his gun, having to fight with the tiger. Obviously, the tiger was more powerful and Jalal was severely wounded, and in mortal danger. Jodha was shocked at what had happened due to her actions, and now Jalal was under the care of the hakim, who was unable to stop the blood from flowing. Jodha took the courage to go and tell Ruqaiya about what had happened, although when Ruqaiya learned that Jodha had partial responsibility for what had happened, she slapped Jodha left and left.
In the meantime, Jodha refused to move out of there for her own security, and started preparing a medicine that she had seen at Amer, prepared by a great hakim. She gave this medicine which was used on Jalal. It stopped his blood from flowing, but also caused a high fever, which made the others more suspicious of what Jodha was upto. The Hakim was also called from Bhopal, although it would take some time for him to come. Finally he reached and confirmed that the medicine was correct, and the high fever would help to make him better again; and finally Jalal was feeling better. This entire episode also seemed to make Jalal and Jodha closer.
