Alibaba concludes his story, revealing that after Cassim's attack on the palace, his father died and he fled the country in regret. After his encounter with Aladdin, he decided to return to Balbadd to take responsability for his actions, just to find... (more) that the slums where he was raised are no more. Cassim revealed to Alibaba that it was destroyed by the government after an epidemic that claimed the life of his sister and asks him to become leader of the Fog Troupe to make a stand against the current king Abhmad, whose disregard for the people has put the country in turmoil. As Sinbad, who is listening the story in the next room takes heed of Alibaba's situation, the hotel is attacked by the Fog Troupe who intends to kill Sinbad and rescue Alibaba, but the King of Sindria and his aides defeat them all. Instead of taking them into custody, Sinbad convinces Alibaba to accompany him to the palace and help bring his brother Abhmad to his senses. In the following day, as Abhmad refuses to listen to Alibaba's request to give aid to his people, Aladdin and Morgiana wait outside the palace amid a huge crowd. When a strange man passes through them, Aladdin has an ominous feeling about him.
