Even though his horse is shot from under him, unlike the previous Persian warriors Bizhan does not retreat, but presses on up the mountain to fight Farud. When he reaches the summit, Farud again fires at him, but the shot is deflected by Bizhan's shield. Farud starts to withdraw to the castle gates. Bizhan catches up with him, and brings down Farud's horse. Farud gets back into the castle and Bizhan returns in triumph to the Persian camp.
