Aladdin Scene 22

Scene 22

Scene 22

  • Back at the palace, Jafar and Iago are acting like the monsters they are. They've got the Sultan and Jasmine chained up, and they're treating the Genie like a slave.
  • Jasmine doesn't like this turn of events, so Jafar has an offer for her: maybe she wants to marry him?
  • Um, nope. Gonna pass on that one. Even slave Jasmine is not that desperate.
  • Jasmine's refusal gives Jafar an idea for his third wish. He wants Jasmine to fall desperately in love with him.
  • Before the Genie can explain that that's not how wishes work, Jasmine spots Aladdin hiding in one of the upper windows of the palace. He's got a plan, so she's gotta do her part.
  • Just then, Jasmine gets up and starts making eyes at Jafar. Yes, pretending to be in love with this hideous villain is gross, but it's for the greater good. All the while, Aladdin is creeping closer and closer to the lamp.
  • Of course, it gets really gross when a platter clangs to the ground and Jasmine has to kiss Jafar to keep him from turning around and seeing Aladdin. Yup, we almost threw up in our mouths a little.
  • And it's all for naught, because Jafar sees Aladdin, anyway, just before he can grab the lamp. Darn.
  • Then Jasmine tries to grab the lamp, and Jafar puts her inside a giant hourglass that starts slowly filling up with sand. Oh, no.
  • Jafar also turns Abu into a toy monkey and unravels Carpet.
  • Looks like it's just Aladdin and Jafar. Hero vs. villain. Who will win?
