He pulls Rabbit out of his bag, and Rabbit creates a hole to Wonderland. Jafar, Rabbit, and Alice’s Dad return to Wonderland. Alice’s Dad is shocked, Alice had been telling the truth. Jafar tells him that Alice is in danger, and he needs to help him rescue Alice. Alice’s Dad reveals that he will be of no help to Jafar, Alice won’t listen to him, because he never believed her about Wonderland.

Alice and Will are making their way to Syrus. The Queen has men out looking for him also, she knows he must have survived the jump he made off the cliff. The Queen is shocked to see Jafar back in Wonderland. Jafar reminds the Queen that even if she finds Cyrus and has the bottle, she still needs his magic.

Jafar pays his remaining captive a visit in the dungeon, and demands to know how Cyrus escaped. His prisoner is of no help to him though. He has Alice’s Dad tied up in a chair, and is using his blood to concoct some sort of magical spell. He is going to use magic to steal Alice’s love for her Dad.

Alice and Will are stuck, they found the island that Cyrus is on, but have no way to get across the water to it. Alice finds a magical “Bird-Bark Tree.” The wood from the tree can fly.

Flashback: Jafar is a boy, and is at the palace, as directed by his mother. The Sultan allows Jafar to stay at the palace, but only as a serving boy to his father. The Sultan tells Jafar he is not to reveal to anyone that he is his son, he is nothing but an orphan to the Sultan.

She thinks Jafar is her father, and is shocked to see him in Wonderland. Her Dad apologizes for not believing her about Wonderland. Alice doesn’t accept his apology though, she doesn’t forgive him for leaving her in the asylum. She tells him that he is too late, and storms off.

Flashback: Jafar is serving the Sultan during a business meeting. Jafar slips up and calls Jafar “Father” in front of his other son and his business associates. Jafar’s real brother follows Jafar to his room and smacks him for looking him in the eye, the Sultan comes in, and encourages his son to keep beating Jafar.

While Alice and Will are building their flying basket, a large flying bird swoops down from the island in the air, and tries to attack them. They use pieces of their basket to shield themselves from the fire is spits at them.
