Cleopatra and Bek become very good friends and the villager helps Cleopatra to enjoy the simplest things in life.

At the palace, Arsinoe convinces Appi, one of the servants, to pass himself off as Juba, the King of Numidia.

Arsinoe’s plan is to recover obtain the key when Appi and Cleopatra turn into become husband and wife. Arsinoe tricks Cleopatra into believing that her nation is in desperate need of food supplies.
