Quite a good episode today - only I still haven't found out where they got the stories from.
Angada challenges everyone at Ravan's court to move his leg from the ground - an attempt at which everyone (including Akampana, Prahasta, Trisira, Narantak, Devantak and Indrajeet and one more whose name I don't know) fail (Angada also says that if anyone there succeeds, on behalf of Lord Rama he vowed that they would admit defeat and go away from Lanka). Infuriated, Ravana himself comes forward to try it. Angada takes away his foot and says that he should fall at Lord Rama's feet not at his. Ravana gets even more angry and orders Prahasta and Akampana to cut off the head of the vanara. Angada gives his final message that Ravana has time till daybreak and if he is still adamant, the war will begin and leaps into the air.
The situation is discussed in Lord Rama's camp, in Ravana's chambers and in the Asoka Vana where Sita is imprisoned.
Ravana discards all advice and is adamant to have Sita for himself.
In the Vanara camp, Vibhishana cautions everyone to be extremely alert.
Indrajeet suggests to Ravana that he can use the help of Ayilravana and Mayilravana to dispose of the two men even before the war starts.
This plan appeals to him and Ravana summons both of them from the Patal Loka. Ayilravana and Mayilravana arrive and agree to take Rama and Lakshmana to the Patal Loka and sacrifice them both to the Demon Gods.
They arrive at the Vanara camp and disguise themselves as Vanaras. They even kill a guard who suspects them and moving further in they check out the pavillions for Rama and Lakshmana.
Hanuman had earlier wound his tail around the pavillion Rama and Lakshmana were in. Ayilravana and Mayilravana find out the place and then realise that they cannot get in through the entrance.
They go underground again and dig up a new tunnel leading straight into the pavillion. Rama is asleep and Lakshmana wakes up at frequent intervals to check on his elder brother.
The two demons make a small object appear from which some sort of smoke comes out and makes Rama and Lakshmana unconcious. Ayilravana and Mayilravana carry them off to the Patal Loka (that is where they live).
The next morning the most awaited battle does not start and no sign of Rama and Lakshmana yet.
Ravan boasts that both of them had fled. Sita insists that her husband will surely come to resuce her. Vibhishana, Sugreeva, Angada, Jambavaan, Nala, Neela come to see Lord Ram but Hanuman tells them that they haven't woken up yet.
They find the body of the vanara Ayilravana and mayilravana had killed and realise that something is seriously wrong. When Hanumaan removes his protection, Ram and Lakshmana are discovered missing. Everyone (especially Hanumaan) looks shocked and the episode ends.
Spoiler - This adventure will not end soon
