KURULUS OSMAN EPISODE 29 SUMMARY
After receiving a message from Ertugrul, Osman leaves on a journey with Goktug to meet with his father. The message is given by Kuzgun a warrior supposedly attached to Tavlak Arslan. Taylak is the brother of Hazal, Dundar Bey’s wife.
Osman and Goktug arrive at their destination unaware that it is a trap.
Osman is excited and proud to be meeting his father after all these years and is led to a secluded spot where he sees his father sitting with his back to him. He calls to his father but receives no response.
As Osman approaches he is stabbed in the chest by a man dressed and resembling Ertugrul. Osman now can see that he has been lured into a trap.
Osman’s attackers cannot hold him for very long. He fights his way out of the situation and escapes with a serious wound in his shoulder. He runs towards the horses and Goktug.
Goktug who is waiting for Osman is attacked also but Goktug is a powerful man and slaughters his enemy. Osman and Goktug cannot recognise any of their attackers but Osman swears he will find out.
Goktug places the injured Osman on his horse but there is no time for him to escape as well. He remains behind to fight off the men and to give Osman time to escape. They overpower him and the last he sees of Osman is the attackers chasing him through the forest.
Back at the Kayi Village, Ertugrul is suspicious of Dundar Bey’s wife, Hazal. He believes that she has something to do with Osman’s disappearance and could be working with her brother against the Kais. Ertugrul has her arrested and placed in jail until his son comes home. He asks Bala to try and find out what she knows.
Dundar Bey on the other hand knows that Ertugrul will punish him for betraying his people and not supporting Osman as he should. He has a meeting with Ertugrul and asks for forgiveness but Ertugrul punishes him and sends him into exile in Sogut. He is not allowed to return to the Kayi nomad.
Whilst Osman is trying to escape his captors, Aya Nickola is having a conversation with the bust of Caesar. He tells Caesar that he is the new Tekfur of Inego Castle and he is very excited about his new position. He even introduces Flatius to Caesar. It is clear they both have psychopathic tendencies and Aya Nickola is paranoid over Julius Caesar.
The drums in the Kayi village herald visitors to the nomad. The visitors are Aya Nickola and Flatius. They look every bit a formidable enemy for the Kais. They enter Ertugrul’s tent and stand looking down at an old man sitting on the tribal throne. They believed they would be presented to Osman and are surprised to see the legendary Ertugrul greeting them.
Aya Nickola brings Ertugrul a chest of gold as a peace offering from the Emperor of Constantinople. Ertugrul does not accepted his gold. It is hard for Flatius to hold back his hatred for Ertugrul as Ertugrul was responsible for killing his father. Aya Nickola promises Flatius that when he is finished dealing with the Kais his fathers blood will be avenged.
The news that there is a plague of rats in the market is brought to Dundar Bey’s ears. It can be seen that the rats are dying and may carry a plague.
Meanwhile, the injured Osman has travelled far on horse back with his captors in pursuit. He has become weakened by his wound and bleeding profusely. He cannot hang on much longer. He now lies on the ground unconscious.
Osman is found by a Holy man who drags him into his cave and treats his wounds.
Luckily Gunduz arrives and rescues Goktug. Goktug tells Gunduz that Osman was led into a trap and he is now wounded. They leave together to search for him.
The drums once more herald visitors to the Kayi nomad. The nomad welcomes Savci Bey, son of Ertugrul and his wife. Savci finds his father has left the nomad alone.
In the Sogut forest Ertugrul is found meeting Abdurrahman Gazi who is his dearest friend. They’re greeting is one of warmth and love. They discuss that they are ageing but leave their lives in the hands of God. Ertugrul is eager to see Bamsi Bey and is told he is coming soon.
Ertugrul then travels to Tavlak Arslan’s nomad alone. He questions him about the whereabouts of Kuzgun. Taylak can see that Ertugrul is suspicious of his intensions to over throw the Kayi tribe and using his sister Hazal to help him.
Illness begins to spread throughout Sogut. The rats introduced by Aya Nickola and Flatius have done their job. They have multiplied and are full of disease. Dundar Bey asks his nephew Savci to help solve the issue of the rats.
Meanwhile, Kuzgun and his gang are still tracking Osman. Osman is now on foot and journeying homewards with the help of the Holy man. Together they draw Kuzgun into their own trap. Osman tries to find out who gave him the order but Kuzgun is not talking.
Gunduz finally finds his brother and is happy to find him alive. Gunduz gives Osman the good news that his father Ertugrul awaits him back in the nomad.
Gunduz sees Kuzgun beaten and lying on the ground. Osman tells his brother that although they beat him he will still not give up the name of the person who set up the trap to capture Osman.
That night Osman tells Gunduz that he cannot wait to see his father. It has been so long. Knowing he is waiting for him back at his nomad gives him joy but increases his impatience.
Hazal Hatun is still in jail. She can see that everyone is blaming her brother for Osman’s ambush but she believes it is somebody else and Osman, Ertugrul and the Kais are all in danger.
Savci ambushes a wagon loaded with gunpowder destined for Inegol castle and Aya Nickola.
Meanwhile, in Osman’s tent, Ertugrul is struck by pain in his stomach. He is found unconscious by Bala and receives immediate treatment, although very ill he survives the attack.
At Osman’s night camp a fight breaks out between Boran Alp and Goktug. It is a planned fight to allow Kuzgun to escape. This he does. Osman and his Alps hope that he will lead them straight back to his master. He is found by mongols and dragged to their camp.
At the Mongol camp Taylak Arslan is cock fighting with the Mongols. Not far away Boran Alp hides in the bush. Kuzgun is dragged through the camp and prostrated before Taylan. Kuzgun tells him that Osman is after him.
At this stage we don’t know if Taylak Arslan is the one responsible for ambushing Osman, although it certainly looks like it.
When Osman enters the mongol camp he finds all the mongols dead. He doesn’t find Taylak Arslan or Kuzgun. He feels that there is a bigger plan is afoot. He tries to get a surviving mongol to tell him what happened without success.
Join Turk-Flix next week to find out if Osman finds out who is responsible for his ambush and for killing the mongols.
