When the emperor wishes to see wonders, the djinn uses his powers to torture and mutilate people in the palace. The emperor is horrified, but the djinn tells him to use his third wish to set things right. Before the emperor can make his third wish, Zoroaster Ari Baraka sorcererexplains the consequences of the third wish and reveals a fire opalwhich pulls the djinn inside and traps him.

A dockworker steals the fire opal from the rubble and pawns it. Alex sees something inside the jewel and leaves it with her close friend and colleague, Josh Aickman Tony Craneto analyze. As he is collecting data, the gem explodes, destroying the lab and releasing the djinn. Josh is killed, upon his wish for relief from his physical pain.
Later, Alex learns that the djinn needs to power the gem with human souls and then grant her three wishes before he can open the gateway to release the djinn on Earth. Meanwhile, the djinn takes the form of a dead man and uses the name Nathaniel Demerest. Nick is given the money when his mother is killed in a plane crash.
Alex sees troubling visions of every time the djinn grants wishes. She consults Derleth, but realizes that she is talking to the djinn, who has killed Derleth and taken her form. The djinn confronts Alex and offers her three wishes, as well an extra "test" wish; she orders the djinn to kill itself.
He shoots himself in the head with a gun but his wound heals instantly, revealing the djinn is an immortal. Using the first of the official three wishes, Alex wishes to know her opponent, the djinn.
He teleports her to his world within the gem which terrifies her. Granting her wish to know what he is, the djinn explains, "To you, I am this: The cry of the abandoned child.
The whimper of the whipped beast. I am the face that stares back at you from the shadows of your mirror.
The hollowness at the heart of all your hopes, Alexandra. The djinn follows, again disguised as Nathaniel Demerest. Alex tells doorman Johnny Valentine Tony Todd to hold the djinn, as he is trying to kill her, and Valentine holds the djinn back.
The djinn, however, manipulates Valentine into making a wish, allowing the djinn to drown Valentine in a Chinese water torture cellmaking his way into the party. The djinn charms Beaumont, who wishes his party would be unforgettable, and thus the djinn causes artwork to kill Beaumont, the guests, and the security guards called in to help.
Eventually the djinn corners the sisters and attempts to scare Alex into making her third wish by trapping Shannon in a burning painting. Alex wishes that Torelli had not been drunk at work, undoing the events that followed and trapping the djinn in the fire opal again.
The now sober Torelli lowers the crate with no problems. Alex visits Josh—now alive again—who notices that Alex seems pleased with herself, though she does not explain why. Inside the jewel on the statue of Ahura Mazda—now in Beaumont's private collection—the djinn sits on a throne, waiting to be released.Delve Deeper into “The Ballad of Esequiel Hernandez” A film by Kieran Fitzgerald War on Drugs shot and killed Esequiel Hernández Jr.
