Season 6

Having been an inhabitant of Storybrooke since the Dark Curse, Aladdin keeps to himself as a lowly thief and has everyone believe that he is dead. However, Aladdin eventually reveals his presence to Emma, Henry and Jasmine. When Aladdin and Jasmine reunite, Jasmine reveals that Agrabah has fallen and that they need Aladdin's help. However, Aladdin had used magical shears to sever himself from his power as a Savior. He learns from Jasmine that Agrabah had vanished during a violent sandstorm. Aladdin is eventually enlisted by Belle and Zelena to sneak into Mr. Gold's shop to steal a wand, which he does successfully, as well as a lamp. However, when Aladdin discovers there is no genie in the lamp, he becomes the genie himself. Unfortunately, the Evil Queen gets her hands on the lamp and becomes Aladdin's master, forcing him to banish Emma to the Wish Realm. The Evil Queen is in the middle of flirting with Aladdin, to his disgust, when David bursts in and takes Aladdin's lamp. Aladdin returns to Jasmine, who uses a wish to take them back to the Enchanted Forest.

Still searching for Agrabah, Aladdin and Jasmine are attacked by a kraken, until they are saved by Hook and the Nautilus' crew. Arriving at Hangman's Island, Aladdin, Jasmine and Hook find out that Ariel has Jafar's genie bottle. They confront Jafar, and after Jasmine defeats him, she kisses Aladdin, breaking him free from his genie curse, as well as restoring the kingdom of Agrabah, which had been trapped inside a diamond ring all along. Jasmine and Aladdin briefly flee Agrabah into the Mad Hatter's Hat during the Black Curse, but return when all is restored.
