The spell is finished – Amara squats by her son, ready to resurrect him as she is now one of the most powerful sorcerers in the world (with Jafar). Which involves turning her back on Jafar – which is damn foolish
Jafar refrains from killing when his dad arrives and tells him to stop because Jafar has super-epic, legendary daddy issues. The ex-sultan makes a plea for mercy which, it has to be said, is rather rich from the man who tried to drown his child. Jafar’s not impressed and uses his magic to finally claim his dad’s love. His father proclaims his love and devotion for his child – and then Jafar reals the second half of the plan; having secured his dad’s love he will then kill him so his dad can know what it’s like to be murdered by someone he loves. He then drowns him
Epic epic EPIC daddy issues. Y’know, all this seeking power has ended rather anti-climactically.
At least Jafar’s little act of patricide gives Alice, Cyrus and Amara chance to escape – by carrying him until they find a carpet to enchant. They flee to the White Rabbit’s burrow where Amara uses her magic to heal Cyrus. Introductions made, Amara announces that now they have to take down Jafar.
Jafar goes to hunt the Jabberwock with the Vorpal blade – because now he fears nothing. He stabs her with the sword (she’s apparently lost her teleport/super-speed ability) and pins her to the wall, imprisoning her.
Next he summons the Knave and tells him he’s brought Anastasia back from the dead! The Knave is overjoyed – except the catch is Jafar’s also used his magic to make Anastasia fall in love with him. Yes, Anastasia now loves Jafar – in a twist that is extra rape-tastic. He also decides to raise an undead army.
Amara’s plan is to return the water to the Well of Wonders, undoing the genie curse, removing the spell and her and Jafar’s super powers. Alice, not realising that Anastasia is back, protests that they promised to try and bring Anastasia back but Cyrus is on Amara’s side – they risk losing the Knave if they launch an outright magical war against Jafar. So new plan – Cyrus and Amara return the water to the well while Alice gathers an army to take down Jafar (he’ll still be a wizard even without super-god-power).
Jafar makes a stirring speech to his army – so they may be back from the dead but they’re not zombies – sending them forth to hunt Amara.
Alice delivers a much soggier speech to her army (that the Rabbit has recruited).
The first battles begin between the different forces - Amara isn’t much delayed – but Cyrus decides Alice won’t stand a chance without magic and, yes, she is defeated and captured and dragged before Jafar to be tied to the furniture. Jafar wants to know where Amara is and rather than use magic to read Alice’s mind or force a truth spell (hey all powerful and all that) he threatens Alice with going back in time and changing the past – making it so Alice and Cyrus never met.
