Plot Summary

Just when things are turning out well for Alibaba, Kassim arrives to argue that the dead cannot be forgotten and that equality will never come. He reminds everyone how the aristocrats has stolen everything from them and that they have to wipe out all royalty, aristocrats, and the national army. As a result, the crowd turns ugly with Zaynab releasing the red mist that acts like a hallucinogen. Elsewhere, Isnan observes Kassim, and black Rukh transforms into a bird of pray. Meanwhile, in Aladdin's dream, he meets Ugo who is a talking head. Ugo explains that Aladdin almost died back then. As the Rukh run rampant in Balbadd, Isnan attacks Banker for trying to suppress the black Rukh. The black Rukh overwhelms the white Rukh. In Ugo's world, Ugo explains things about fate and that are others who oppose fate by reversing the flow of fate. This is how Rukh turned black. Ugo states that he used up all of his Magoi to bring Aladdin and that he cannot come with Aladdin anymore. He prepares to send Aladdin off to learn Solomon's Wisdom.

After Ugo gives his final farewells to Aladdin, Aladdin is transported to a special place where he will be reborn. At the palace, the crowd invades, and bloodshed follows. Barkak asks Sahbmad what to do, and Alibaba tells half of the forces to block the main gates while the other half suppress the invaders in the palace. Alibaba confronts Cassim and his group, and he manages to break free. He destroys Hassan's Household Vessels first and then the others. When Alibaba orders Kassim to surrender, Kassim demands Alibaba to kill him. As Alibaba is about to swing, his sword reverts to a dagger. He asks Kassim to withdraw his forces, yet Kassim remarks that Alibaba is soft. Recalling Isnan's instructions, Kassim stabs himself with his own Household Vessel. Drenched in his own blood, Kassim gathers all of the broken Household Vessels towards him. He absorbs the shatter blades forcibly into his body. As a result, Kassim transforms into a black Djinn.

N/A
Kassim: "I hear that Balbadd's become a republic. Meaning that all the riches of this country, which once belonged to the king, will now be divided equally among us - the people of Balbadd. But isn't that actually a scam? You'll distribute it to us? All that this country owns was built by our - the people's - blood and sweat... it was ours from the beginning! And who was it that depleted it with inept policies... and is now trying to make us pay for it? You remember, don't you? Those days when they plucked everything with heavy taxes! The parents and siblings who starved to death... The dead aren't coming back, you know! If the monarchy goes away, does that mean that the sins of the royals will also disappear? No way are they gonna disappear! Those damned royals are the enemy that we should wipe out, after all!"
