Alibaba is appalled when he hears about Aladdin's solo journey. He doesn't understand his reasons well and wants to go with him. Meanwhile, Yamraiha voices her strong desire of sending Aladdin out to Magnostadt and letting him become a wonderful Magician. In the meantime, Aladdin says that he wants to make Alibaba a king who gives hope to others but notes that he's not strong enough. He then tells Alibaba and Morgiana that they should think what will they do from now on.

The next day, Morgiana asks Masrur about the Dark Continent and learns that she won't find any Fanalis there. Masrur tells her to go there instead of regretting it later. Later, Alibaba drinks with Sharrkan in a pub but all he does is complain. Sharrkan remarks that he's a prince himself and he shouldn't be so willing to work under the another country's king. Alibaba is then kicked out from the pub. While lying on the ground, he reassures himself that Aladdin will change his mind. In the night, Aladdin reveals to Dunya that he's going to Magnostadt, as he can't leave a place that discriminates Goi alone, so to not let it end like his homeland.
