KURULUS OSMAN EPISODE 51 SUMMARY
Osman decides to let Togay go in the hope they can get Malhun Hatun back from Aya Nickola. Osman is angry with Umur Bey for not only sending his daughter into danger but for ignoring his orders and not seeking his permission first
Malhun Hatun is imprisoned in the dungeons. Her only hope is that Osman will exchange the Tekfur for her.
Osman’s anger increases when he tells Bala that his real purpose is to conquer Inegol Castle but he cannot even begin when he has to play games with Togay and Umur Bey. They make his burden heavier. He tells Bala that she stands behind him like a strong mountain.
Osman and his Alps leave the nomad in two groups. Goktug leads one group travelling with the Tekfur. Osman leads a second group.
They have not gone far before the Tekfur is assassinated by Togay’s arrow.
Osman on the other hand is waiting for Aya Nickola to bring Malhun Hatun in exchange. His Alp brings him the news that the Tekfur has been killed now Osman now has nobody to exchange for the release of Malhun Hatun.
Osman is placed in a bad situation. He shows Aya Nickola that the Tekfur is dead. Osman is once again forced into letting Aya Nickola go. His frustrations are huge and his temper great as he slams his sword into the ground. He has travelled far but will be returning with no Tekfur and failing to bring Malhun Hatun home.
Umur Bey also is not too happy with Osman. He sees him as a failure when he doesn’t bring his daughter home. He decides he wants to go it alone from now on and not rely on Osman at all. Osman warns him once again not to do anything on his own.
Osman gets a message from Zulfikar who is acting as a priest in Inegol Castle. The message tells Osman that Aya Nickola is moving Malhun Hatun out of the Castle and keeping her in a cave. Unbeknown to Osman the message is a trap.
Unfortunately he doesn’t find Malhun Hatun in the cave but rather the body of Zulfikar the priest who has been acting as a spy within Inegol Castle. Osman can see that he has been led into a trap and he and his Alps have to fight their way out of a deadly situation.
Aya Nickola sends a message to Umur Bey asking him to meet him at the Castle, in return for his visit he will let Malhun Hatun go.
Umur Bey decides to go but not tell Osman what he is doing.
Aya Nickola tries to enlist Umur Bey as an ally. Umur Bey does not want to betray Osman but Aya Nickola promises him good trade and when Geyhatu comes he wants him to supply horses for his Nokers. In return Aya Nickola will give him the trading routes of Bursa and Constantinople.
Umur Bey agrees to think about his offer. Aya Nickola releases Malhun Hatun. Little did they know that Togay was in the room and releasing Malhun Hatun was all in their plan of turning Umur Bey against Osman.
Osman calls for all the Beys in the land to come together and bring their soldiers to join his army.
Osman believes that Umur Bey will pay a ransom for Malhun Hatun and Nickola will want to bargain with him. Osman’s job will be to stop him but when he later visits Umur Bey in his tent he sees that Malhun Hatun has already been released and he realises that Umur Bey must have already made a deal.
Osman tells Umur Bey that he paid a big price for trying to rescue his daughter. He lost the life of Zulfikar and Tekfur Aris.
Osman knows that Aya Nickola and Togay will use Umur Bey to break down the unity of the tribes and use Umur Bey against him. From now on he has to keep a close eye on Umur Bey.
Osman tells Bala that Boran and Gonca want to get married and if he waits for a day without a problem in it they may be waiting forever. He decides their wedding plans should go ahead. Preparations are made to have the wedding in the Sogut Bazaar so the poor can celebrate with them also.
Umur Bey and Malhun Hatun understand that if they unite with Aya Nickola then they will be turning Turk against Turk. Umur Bey tells Malhun Hatun that he has a plan of his own and it has nothing to do with Osman. He tells her that once his horses and stable boys have entered Inegol Castle they will be inside the castle walls which they say are impenetrable. Then the castle gates will be opened from the inside allowing Umur Bey’s Alps to enter and take the Castle. The castle will then be theirs.
Dundar Bey informs Osman that Malhun Hatun was looking for somebody to provide 100 horses for her father. Osman is angered hearing this news. He finds Malhun Hatun in the Sogut Bazaar he tears strips out of her for trading with the enemy. He tells her to go to her father and tell him that Osman Bey will not allow this to happen and he should fear Osman’s wrath.
Aya Nickola receives a message that Kalonos will be at Inegol Castle in three days time. His strength will double when he arrives.
Meanwhile, Togay has a set plan to raid the wedding of Boran and Gonca and kill the bride.
News reaches Osman that Umur Bey is on the move taking horses to Inegol Castle. Osman is angered that he has disobeyed him.
On the road to Sogut, Osman has his own caravan making its way to the town. Bala rides beside Gonca as the bride makes her way to be married. Accompanying them is Boran, Abdurrahman Ghazi, Bamsi Bey, Gunduz, wedding guests and Alps.
Togay is not far away. He moves his soldiers into position to ambush the wedding caravan. The caravan is taken by surprise. Togay’s arrows kill many and then they attack by the sword.
Togay sees his target. He loads his arrow which has been soaked in his blood and shoots. His arrow finds his target. Gonca is struck down. Not only is Gonca fatally wounded but Abdurrahman Ghazi protects her from more of Togay’s arrows and he is also hit with a deadly arrow.
Abdurrahman Ghazi cannot hold on. He dies in the arms of Bamsi Bey.
From a distance Togay can see that his arrow has killed Abdurrahman Ghazi. The look on his face indicates that he is a little scared of what he has done. He knows that Osman the wolf will come after him.
Meanwhile, Osman is unaware of what has happened to his wedding caravan. He has had to go after Mulhun Hatun who is on the road to Inegol Castle with the horses. Once more because of her and her father’s disobedience he has been taken away from protecting his family at a crucial moment.
Osman and his Alps block the path of Malhun Hatun and her caravan. Osman looks her in the face and tells her that he stands by his words but at this point this is where words stop and action takes place.
He orders his Alps to take over the caravan and not to be gentle.
