Are you looking for one of your favorite Ertugrul Season 2 scenes but can’t remember which episode it’s in? Have you just finished Season 1 and are wondering what’s in store for you in the upcoming season? Here is your complete Season 2 episode guide!
Season 2 is very likely the longest season out of all 5 from Dirilis Ertugrul with a whopping 103 episodes on Netflix. There are tons of memorable scenes you may want to look back on without having to rewatch the entire season. Well, luck is on your side because I have compiled all of the major moments (and some notable minor scenes, as well) from Season 2.
Enjoy! (Or not. Season 2 is full of tragedy, drama, death, and destruction. So if you want to stay happy, stop now.)
SPOILERS UP AHEAD
This should probably go without saying, but of course, this post is FULL of spoilers for Ertugrul Season 2. Proceed at your own risk.
Episode 1: Halime Tells Ertugrul She is Pregnant
Season 2 starts right off with Ertugrul finding out that Halime is pregnant with their first child, Gunduz. The few minutes of joy do not last, however, as Ertugrul soon gets kidnapped by Mongols. Meanwhile, the Kayi tribe is being attacked mercilessly.
Episode 3: Aykiz dies
In one of the all-time saddest deaths of the whole show, Aykiz dies in Turgut’s arms after much agony from being burned alive by Noyan and his soldiers. The actress for Aykiz didn’t stay on for Season 2, so the body that appears in the scene looks nothing like her, a staunch reminder of the excessive cruelty that led to her death.
Episode 4: Ertugrul’s fake death by Noyan
This is the very first time Ertugrul has a fake death scene. This time it’s at the hands of Noyan who makes it seem like Ertugrul has been burned alive. The set-up is so believable that Ertugrul’s entire family and his tribe mourn his loss.
Episode 5: Hand Nail Episode Torture scenes
This is more of an episode to avoid if you are going through Season 2 again. One of the worst torture scenes in the whole show, and I hate that they keep showing flashbacks of it in later episodes.
Episode 8: Alp Banishment, geyikli saves ertugrul
A lot happens in this very tense episode. Back in the tribe, the alps (Dogan, Abdurrahman, and Hamza) get banished after Tugtekin accuses them of being traitors (when, in fact, it’s his own alp Kocabash who is the traitor). In better news, Ertugrul escapes from Noyan’s den after a very dramatic and stressful sequence of events. He is saved by none other than the funny lovable forest hermit, Geyikli who has his own secret home set-up in a cave in the woods.
Episode 9: Funny Reunion with Ertugrul and His Alps
Episode 10: Ertugrul Returns to the Tribe
Episode 12: Tugtekin gets chosen as the Alp Basi over Ertugrul
The cousin rivalry between Ertugrul and Tugtekin is already putting their tribe’s fate in a high stakes situation. The Kayis and Dodurgas hold a toy (meeting) to decide who should be the next commander of the alps. When everyone finds out that Ertugrul’s hand is damaged and he can’t fight, Tugtekin is almost unanimously chosen. In a shocking turn of events, Hayme Hatun votes against Ertugrul, and the rest of the Kayi tribe follows her lead. Not only is Ertugrul not given the position of Alp-Basi, but he’s also stripped of the title of alp altogether until his hand heals.
Episode 13: Turgut and Dogan Resign from Being Alps
Episode 14: Awkward scene between Gokce and Ertugrul
Episode 15: Ertugrul and Gundogdu have a fist fight
Episode 17: Ibn Arabi’s First Appearance in Season 2, Secrets about Korkut Come out, and Gundogdu sucks
Episode 21: How Does Abdurrahman Escape the caged Tent?
While rewatching this season with my family, we remembered that Abdurrahman would escape from the caged tent, but we couldn’t remember how. It turns out that Turali (the adorable orphan boy who is “adopted” by Deli Demir) has a huge role in this secret mission. Abdurrahman escapes the tent with help from Artuk Bey, Deli Demir, and Turali (who sets a fire so Abdurrahman can leave unnoticed). Meanwhile, Ertugrul is chilling in his tent having dinner with his family so no one can accuse him of helping Abdurrahman escape. Of course, everyone knows or strongly suspects he’s behind it, but they can’t prove it.
Episode 23: Moments with the Alps, aytolun Drama
In this episode, there’s a cute moment with the alps who are having dinner in the cave as they make jokes with each other, and then Dogan ruins it by reminding Turgut of Aykiz.
In other news, Gokce has dinner with Aytolun and the family, and the Selcan-Aytolun drama comes to a head when Selcan slaps Aytolun.
Episode 24: Ibn Arabi’s First Season 2 Appearance that’s not in a dream
Episode 25: Clothing ceremony with Ibn Arabi
Episode 26: Halime follows the alps to the cave to see Ertugrul, goncagul’s first appearance
In a cute, fun sequence of events, Halime follows Turgut and Dogan to Geyikli’s cave after they refuse to tell her Ertugrul’s whereabouts. They reunite briefly, while Ertugrul light-heartedly makes fun of Turgut and Dogan for being followed. (They knew she was following them but didn’t know what to do about it, so they just let it go.)
Back at the tribe, Goncagul makes her first appearance in the show. Meanwhile, in Noyan’s lair, Abdurrahman puts doubts in Noyan’s mind about who he can trust.
Episode 27: Ertugrul Sneaks into the Tribe and Gokce Gets her official marriage proposal
Episode 29: Gumustekin’s first appearance
Episode 31: Gumustekin tries to put Halime and Deli Demir in the caged tent
Episode 32: Bamsi’s first season 2 appearance
I can’t believe we went through 31 episodes without Bamsi in Season 2! Bamsi makes his first appearance with a dramatic entrance that does not disappoint.
Another great scene features Hayme finding out that Sungurtekin is alive.
Episode 33: Tugtekin finds out that Kocabash is a traitor

Episode 38: Ertugrul and Selcan have a talk
Episode 39: Hayme Ana Almost Dies
There are many moments throughout the series when it seems like Hayme Ana might die. Season 2, Episode 39 comes very close. In fact, Hayme Hatun lingers between life and death when she sees Suleyman Shah in what appears to be a dream or vision. In the dream, he basically tells her not to die.
In a terrible, violent attack, Mongols sneak into the tribe at night and go on a killing spree.
Episode 41: Sungurtekin scene
After 1.5 seasons of hearing about Sungurtekin, the long-lost brother who disappeared in battle many years ago, we finally get to see him in person. He appears on his horse in a dramatic first appearance as Deli Demir and Halime are about to get killed.
Episode 42: Ertugrul’s Trial and dramatic rescue scene at Ertugrul’s Execution
After an unfair trial to determine Ertugrul’s fate, the tribes prepare for his execution. However, thanks to some smart planning and quick thinking by Selcan and the alps, there’s a dramatic rescue scene just as Korkut Bey is about to kill Ertugrul.
Episode 43: Tugtekin is returned to the tribe
Episode 44: Gundogdu is elected as the new alp basi
Episode 45: Karabek dies
Episode 46: banu cicek’s first appearance

Episode 50: Sungurtekin returns to tribe scene, great sarcastic selcan
In a very emotional scene (one of my favorite and most memorable scenes from the entire show), Hayme Ana is finally reunited with Sungurtekin after years of uncertainty about his fate and longing to see him again.
In this episode, we also get to see some great sarcastic moments and clap-backs by Selcan.
Episode 51: Selcan kidnapped
In a frustrating sequence of events, Selcan gets kidnapped, an event that could have been prevented if Gundogdu entered her tent like he planned to. However, Goncagul draws him away.
Episode 53: Ertugrul and his alps travel to sogut; Selcan is kidnapped; Hamza Escapes
Ertugrul and his alp trio go travel to Sogut in preparation for their big future goals. Selcan is kidnapped, and Hamza escapes.
There is a possible moment in the tribe during this episode when a boom mic might be showing.
Episode 56: Hamza’s funeral
After his betrayals, Hamza commits a final act of heroism for his tribe before he dies.
Episode 59: Sadettin kopek’s first appearance; Selcan and halime team up
In this episode, Selcan and Halime team up to sneak into Aytolun’s tent during Noyan’s execution. Just when we think Noyan is going to finally pay for all his crimes, Emir Saadettin Kopek makes his first-ever appearance and saves Noyan before he can be killed.

Dundar and Yigit make their first appearance this season on their journey back to the tribe after their training in the mountains. However, they get attacked by Noyan, and Ertugrul tries to save them to no avail.
Episode 84: Halime goes into labor
Halime finds out about Dundar and Yigit and goes into pre-mature labor. Emir Sadettin Kopek says his key-phrase, “aala” for the first time.
Episode 85: Ertugrul sees suleyman shah in a dream; Noyan brings goncagul to his cave

Episode 89: Tugtekin and Gokce make up
Tugtekin and Gokce finally make up right before some terrible things are about to happen.
Episode 90 Gokce is kidnapped
In this terrible, frustrating episode, we feel a sense of utter helplessness and foreboding during this re-watch because we know how this is all going to end up. Noyan kidnaps Gokce, while Hayme Ana, Selcan, and Gundogdu helplessly watch. Their efforts to save her are futile.
Episode 91: Yigit sends a secret message to Ertugrul; Gokce Kills goncagul
Yigit sends a secret message to Ertugrul and Halime, so they know he didn’t actually betray the state. Gokce kills Goncagul and tries to escape.
Episode 92: Gokce dies, Turgut Escapes and kills ulubilge, Yigit gets shot
This episode is fraught with drama, tragedy, and sorrow. Turgut escapes and kills Ulubilge in one of the only satisfying scenes this episode. In a terrible death scene, Noyan kills Gokce right in front of Tugtekin. Later, Yigit gets shot by Emir Sadettin’s goons.

Hey, thanks for posting these summaries, they have been great. Just wondering if you are going to be posting the rest of the seasons as well?
Glad they are beneficial! I do plan to post episode guide summaries for the other seasons, but it may be a while, as my family paused our Ertugrul re-watch to watch a new Turkish historical drama (Uyanis Buyuk Selcuklu). Please do let me know what scenes you would like me to focus on for the next seasons!
Like, how Titus dies in season 1 (I have already finished season 1, I just want other people to know.)
I hope he/she will. Insha Allah.
Haha..You’re such a genius. This is very helpful and accurate. Do you have season 3 too? I’m just completing season 2
Really helpful and %100 accurate.
Can you please do more of these! I need it for season 3-5! Please! Inshaallah you do it soon! Thanks!
Hi! I was wondering if you have a season 3 guide? I absolutely love this show and your season 2 guide help me a lot! Thank you!
Hi! I have actually been working on one, but I heard that Ertugrul is being taken off Netflix so I’m not sure if it will be useful after that 😦
Only season 1 and 2 have been removed:)
we loved this show. My husband is Jewish his parents were from Iran and Iraq yet he felt the customs and languages were so familiar. We are so disappointed we didn’t discover Ertugrul sooner as its now being taken off Netflix. Best show ever!
we are now watching it via utube since it was taken off netflix.
Great ideas! I especially love the conciseness of your beautiful summaries!
I was glued to This series of Ertugural from scene 1 to 5
… My favourite bcharacter was motherHyme
She is so genuine and thereafter Ertugural himself.i loved it It gave us a new insight to life. Very professional and spellbinding teaching me about Turkish history .(
My kids visited Turkey at the time I was watching the series. Absolutely An experience.
It taught me about everyday life here in my country and how we have to survive the unexpected bad things and enjoy the good things.I am a Christian do the Muslim Brotherhood did not impact me BUT THE RESPONSIBILITY they displayed regarding their religion is a lesson for the Christians…. Did they return home….?
I loved your summary of season 2 and wish you would do one to help me follow season 3!
Where can I watch season 3, I can’t find it on utube and I don’t have Netflix 😭
Check out osmanonline or kayifamily
Why is there a time gap between last episode of Season 2 and first episode of season 3 in Erthrugal?
