Iago was mounting a tourist map business, but the sultan's city gets a less welcome visitor. Just after Jasmine has a nightmare prophesying Agrabah's destruction, it hails in summer followed by an earthquake and a plague of giant scorpions.

No material, intellectual or artistic treasures make a redeeming impression. The magical spear Genie forges can't avert the Ethereal either, so it starts the apocalyptic sequence.
