Role in the episode
The Ethereal was first seen with the golden mask at a merchant store with jewelry and necklaces and as Jasmine picks it up, she hears a woman's voice coming from it. The prophecy that which she said in Jasmine's existing nightmare was ice falling through the sky, the Earth moving like an earthquake, light becoming dark as pitch black as the darkest night sky, creatures of destruction (like legendary giant desert scorpions) bringing forth their wrath and Agrabah in the future was destroyed.
The eclipse is ending, and the Ethereal in a long white robe is hovering in the sky. She is wearing a golden mask like the one Jasmine saw in her dream. She begins to descend to the ground, and tells everyone that the day of reckoning for their civilization will bring her judgment upon Agrabah. But Iago tells her what happens if she doesn't want to see the city, it would be reduced to dust and rubble like the dream that Jasmine saw in the future and her bad dream. Despite the great libraries, art and economy of the city, the Ethereal feels unsatisfied and compared these attributes to the ones from legendary cities that she destroyed.
Genie turns into a giant golf player, and the Ethereal is in a golf tee and he tries to hit her with a club that protected her from hitting, so Genie breaks into a thousand pieces. Aladdin tackles her to the ground, and looking at her white robe, which was empty, and she lifts up by herself off the ground, and the robe floats over to it which Aladdin is not denying her.
In the chaos she ensures, Jasmine saves some children from falling rubble and gets crushed by the rubble itself. This is what the Etheral needed to see to ensure that Agrabah should not be destroyed. At the end, with her arm, the Ethereal brings Jasmine back to life from and restore the city from destruction that she had been made. She tells the lesson to everyone in Agrabah plus Aladdin and the gang, rises back up from the sky, and disappears into thin air.
- She is the only character in the series shown to resurrect the dead, although whether this is true resurrection or some other ability such as time manipulation is unknown.
- The Ethereal is similar to Mamoon-Ra because they both are a mask with a feminine voice that says words of prophecy (The Ethereal say a prophecy to Jasmine, and Mamoon-Ra say a prophecy to Aladdin).
