Kurulus: Osman – A quick recap of the previous season
Season 2 proved to be bigger and better than the debut instalment in almost every aspect. The season commenced with Nikola becoming the brand new Tekfur of Inegol. On the other hand, Yavlak Arslan begins to think that Osman is a huge barrier in his path. Additionally, he looks to establish his own state. However, circumstances force him to create an alliance with Osman to fight against a much larger threat in the form of the Han of the Ilkhanate.
On the other hand, the Han shakes hand with Nikola to defeat the Turkish kings and get their hands on the land of Anatolia. Meanwhile, Bala deals with Targun. The latter is Nikola’s spy, sent to keep a close eye on Osman. He agreed to the spying job to protect his father from the wrath of Nikola.
In the middle of this chaotic scenario, Osman becomes the new Bey. However, he faces a major crisis due to the last wish of his father. Ertugrul clearly mentioned in his will that Osman has to bring a second wife. That’s why he marries Malhun Hatun.
Sometime later, Osman fights the well-known Battle of Mount Armenia against the Byzantines. However, his uncle, Dundar, betrays him and help the opposition army to set some traps for the Turkish king. Dundar did this act of treason out of his jealousy towards his own king.
The fans watched Geyhatu sending Kara Saman Togay to end the stories of Osman’s Kayi tribe and Omer Bey’s Bayindir tribe. Kara was the son of Baycu Noyan.
