Alice's Wishes are magical item featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. They first appear in the first episode of the spin-off.


Description

They are three tiny tear-shaped jewels that can be given to the one who finds a genie's bottle. Each of the three represent one wish, and disappear when the wish is granted. Unlike regular wishes, which can be stolen by someone else by merely taking possession of a genie's bottle, the wishes Cyrus made for Alice will not work for anyone else unless they are granted by the person who first received them. ("Down the Rabbit Hole", "Wish You Were Here")

History

Before First Curse

In Wonderland, a young woman named Alice meets a Genie named Cyrus. The two of them develop feelings for each other and Cyrus gives her three red jewels, which are wishes. Alice she learns from Cyrus about certain wish restrictions. He stresses they are the four laws of magic, which include the inability to wish for someone's death, bringing a person back from the dead, changing the past or making an individual fall in love. She ponders using a wish to free him, but he explains that has never ended well for either side because the bigger the wish, the larger the consequence. Still unsure what to wish for, they take a walk through the maze so he can give her some suggestions.

After giving Alice sword lessons, Cyrus suggests that it's time for her to make the wishes. She is saddened by his response until he confesses to falling in love with her, which is all the more reason he can't bear to be apart from her. Alice feels the same about him and promises to never move on from him if he does the same. Choosing love over the wishes, the two bury his bottle in a pasture near a dandy-lion sculpted tree. ("Trust Me")

After First Curse

Will Scarlet receives word that Cyrus, who was believed to be dead, is still alive. Together, he and Alice travel to Wonderland to find him. Will wishes to leave Wonderland as soon as possible so his past doesn't come back to haunt him, but he is convinced to stay when Alice offers him one of the three wishes Cyrus gave her. They go to Tulgey Woods where Alice takes off her shoes and climbs into a tree to get a better view of the Mad Hatter's house. Tempted, he snatches the shoes containing the wishes and runs away, but returns to rescue Alice from a hungry Cheshire Cat by throwing a piece of shrinking mushroom in the feline's mouth. Alice is upset at his betrayal, but Knave finds it redeemable that he came back to save her. ("Down the Rabbit Hole")

The next morning, Alice proposes they find the genie bottle and use up the three wishes. Then, Knave will rub the bottle to draw Cyrus back into it. After that, she'll devise a method to free Cyrus permanently. ("Trust Me")

Alice and Cyrus are found by Jafar, who is searching for a way to force Alice to use the wishes to he can steal Cyrus' bottle for himself. He begins choking Knave to death and Alice uses a wish to ask for her own death if Knave dies. Jafar lets Knave go, but then exerts physical pain on Alice to force her to make another wish. Alice's adamant defiance causes him to drop her, to which she and Knave take their leave. ("The Serpent")

Tp further his own agenda, Jafar brings Alice's father Edwin to Wonderland. He flies by Alice on a magic carpet and dangles Edwin as a threat. Alice believes that Edwin is merely an impostor, but Edwin proves to be her father when he gives a painful admission to having blamed Alice for all the unhappiness in his own life, such as her mother's death, and is deeply regretful for not believing in her when she told him about her adventures in Wonderland. He asks not for forgiveness and compassion for his actions, and instead discloses that Cyrus Jafar's prison before being dropped into the sea. Alice saves her father by wishing him home to Victorian England. Despite having used her second wish, she is grateful that her father now understands her, and knowing Cyrus is no longer a prisoner. ("Bad Blood")

Will is mortally injured when he is truck by a ligtning bolt conjured by Jafar. He nears death, as Alice, too, begins to die as her first wish comes into full effect. However, Alice is unwilling to use the third wish to save herself and trap Cyrus in the bottle again. In the end, Cyrus gives Will the third wish, which he uses to "end Alice's suffering". Alice is revived as Cyrus' servitude as a genie ends, however, she is horrified to learn Knave has now taken his place in the bottle as a price for the wish. ("Home")
