While Arslan and Daryun enlist Narsus and his servant Elam's help, Lusitania begins their siege in the royal capital of Ecbatana.
The actions of Gieve, a wandering traveler draws the attention of Queen Tahamine, while the Lusitanian soldiers call for the slaves inside the walls to join them in exchange for their freedom.
The Lusitanian Army appears before Ecbtana. The captive General Shapur is brought over, on a chariot, heavily wounded. He is beaten and tortured by Archbishop Bodin as an example of those who refuse God's faith. Shapur doesn't plead for his life; he courageously insult Lusitania's faith and asks for an arrow of mercy from the besieged. Many archers on the walls tried but all fail, except a mysterious one.
The mysterious man, a wandering traveler named Gieve, is brought before the Queen, where a servant of the Queen denounces him as a quack. This resulted in a loss of a part of the reward for Gieve.
After many bloody and violent assaults, Lusitanian soldiers scream freedom's promises to slaves if they rise up against Pars and help them take the city.
Meanwhile, Arslan held talks with Narsus, and realizes that Ecbtana will probably fall, even with solid defenses, because of people inside the city ready to help the Lusitanians: the slaves of the city.
