The mother of all wars, the epitome of all rivalries, the cauldron of emotions, insecurities, jealousies, and power play - Mahabharat!
Krishna reminds Arjun of Duryodhan, Dushyasan and Shakuni's misdeeds, and the sacrifices of Bhishma and Dronacharya. He enlightens him about dharma and adharma. Thinking about the outcome of the war, Arjun drops his Gandiv. How will Krishna motivate him to fulfil his duty?
Kunti apologises to Karna and requests him to take the Pandavas' side, but he tells her that he will not be disloyal to Duryodhan. Karna promises Kunti that he will not kill any of her sons other than Arjun. On learning about Duryodhan's decision, Yudhishthir instructs Arjun and Bheem to prepare their army.
Draupadi decides to stay on the battlefield with the Pandavas. Bhishma informs Vidur that the person who might be responsible for his death is in the Pandava army. Armies of the Pandavas and the Kauravas gather on the battlefield. Krishna declares that the war will begin after three days.
Duryodhan tells Krishna that he has unbeatable warriors like Bhishma, Dronacharya and Karna. Shikhandini tells Duryodhan that she, Dhrishtadyumna and Arjun can defeat their opponents. Soon after, Shakuni begins to read the rules of the war. Yudhishthir is tensed, but agrees to the rules.
When Shikhandini confronts Bhishma about not letting her participate in the war, he explains the reasons to her. Meanwhile, Duryodhan decides to protect himself with Karna's Kavach and Kundal. But according to Suryadev, during the war, Karna will have to give away his Kavach and Kundal.
Indradev, disguised as a Brahmin, asks Karna for his Kavach and Kundal. Later, he tells Krishna and Arjun that he will help them. Arjun suspects that the Brahmin is Indradev and that he might ask for Karna's weapons.
Indradev asks Karna to donate his Kavach and Kundal to him, or not participate in the war. Karna obeys him. Arjun tells Indradev that he will kill Karna anyway, but to kill a warrior deprived of his weapons may cast a doubt on his own abilities. So, Indradev blesses Karna with a divine weapon.
Duryodhan is not happy to learn that Karna donated his Kavach and Kundal. Shakuni advises Duryodhan to increase his army as Karna won't be able to protect them. Kunti sees Karna suffering with pain. Vrushali suggests Nakul and Sahadev should treat him. Will the Pandava brothers help their enemy?
As Nakul and Sahadev treat Karna, Dushyasan and Ashwatthama welcome Shalya. King Shalya informs the Pandavas that he has promised his support to Duryodhan. They are worried as Duryodhan's army has multiplied. Will the Pandavas agree to Krishna's plan of killing Bhishma?
Bhishma learns about Kunti and Karna's relationship and forbids Karna from fighting in the war. Duryodhan intervenes and Bhishma asks Duryodhan to choose between him and Karna. Who will Duryodhan choose, knowing that Bhishma will never kill the Pandavas?
Krishna decides to drive Arjun's chariot, in the war. The Kuru and the Pandavas' armies face each other on the battlefield. Yudhishthir requests Bhishma and Dronacharya, on behalf of the Pandavas, to either allow them to wage the war or sacrifice their weapons.
Bhishma blesses the Pandavas and orders them to attack. While Ved Vyas blesses Sanjay with the power to foresee how the war will progress, Krishna helps Arjun get a glimpse of the Kuru army. Arjun is sad at the thought of attacking Bhishma. Krishna steps in to guide him.
Radha informs Karna that she is not his biological mother and this depresses him. Vrushali tries to console him and also advises him to meet Kunti. Karna meets her and she asks him for a favour. Eventually, he regrets having to fight against the Pandavas.
Krishna helps clear Arjun's mind by telling him about sattva, tamas and rajas. He explains to him how the body can be destroyed but the soul remains eternal. He further explains how everyone has to eventually face death and that, he shouldn't worry about it but prepare for war.
Krishna teaches Arjun to accept the consequences of the war, whether victory or defeat. He tells him about Karma Yoga and Moksha. Arjun learns that Krishna is almighty. Krishna asks him to submit himself to his duties as that is the path to a better future for the world.
Krishna educates Arjun about Bhakti Yoga and the relationship between dedication and devotion. Listening to Krishna, Arjun wishes to take his blessings in his real avatar. Krishna assumes Vishwaroop and blesses Arjun. Is Arjun now ready to attack the Kaurava army?
The armies clash. In Hastinapur, Sanjay narrates to Dhritarashtra how the war is unfolding. The Pandavas attack the Kuru army and destroy their first phase. On being reminded of his oath by Duryodhan, Bhishma decides to separate the Pandavas.
Arjun seeks Dronacharya's blessings. Bheem takes on Ashwatthama to save Prativindhya. Yudhishthir finds himself isolated on the battlefield. Bhishma asks Duryodhan to take the opportunity and capture Yudhishthir. How will the Pandava brothers save Yudhishthir?
Duryodhan, Dushyasan and Shakuni fight against Yudhishthir. Dhrishtadyumna asks Arjun to help Yudhishthir, while he tackles Drona. Shakuni persuades Shalya to attack Yudhishthir from behind. Who will save Yudhishthir?
The Pandavas decide to take revenge for Uttar's death. Yudhishthir plans to capture Duryodhan the next day. While Bhishma informs Duryodhan that the Pandavas will return stronger, Dhrishtadyumna announces that the Pandavas' army has suffered a huge loss.
As it is important for the Pandavas that Bhishma and Dronacharya leave the battlefield, Krishna thinks of a plan. Back at Hastinapur, Sanjay keeps updating Dhritarashtra about the war. But he is unable to predict what the Pandavas are planning.
Krishna decides to provide an opportunity for Bheem to defeat Duryodhan by engaging Bhishma and Dronacharya in the war. Arjun invites Ashwatthama to fight him, aware that he is Dronacharya's weakness. Meanwhile, Yudhishthir fights Bhishma and Bheem fights Duryodhan.
Bhishma returns to the battlefield with Yudhishthir as his hostage, while Bheem is on the verge of killing Duryodhan. Krishna tells the Pandavas to injure Bhishma and put him out of the war. How do they do that?
Bhishma regrets taking Yudhishthir hostage. Duryodhan accuses him of being a traitor as he has not killed Yudhishthir. Bhishma decides not to participate in the war as he can't kill the Pandavas, but Duryodhan reminds him of his oath. What will Bhishma do?
Kans kills Devaki's seven children. He instructs a soldier to inform him when Devaki delivers her eighth child. Lord Vishnu appears before Devaki and Vasudeva and seeks Devaki's permission to be born as her son. Devaki gives birth to her eighth child.
