She found him on Hangman's Island, which was outside the force of the curse. They've been living happily ever after ever since.

Hangman's Island is a Fairy Tale Land location featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. It first appears in the seventeenth episode of the third season.


Before Second Curse

After taking Prince Eric captive on the Jolly Roger, Black Beard imprisons him on Hangman's Island. Ariel, Eric's lover, tracks Black Beard down with the help of Hook. Before Ariel can find out where Eric is, Hook hurls the other pirate into the sea, but Ariel is able to save his life and gets the information. ("The Jolly Roger", "Fall", "Poor Unfortunate Soul")

During Second Curse

Ariel eventually reaches Hangman's Island and is reunited with Prince Eric. Due to Hangman's Island being out of the Dark Curse's reach, they are not taken back to Storybrooke when Snow White casts it. ("The Jolly Roger")

After Third Curse

With the tracking ability of Captain Nemo's harpoon, Hook, Aladdin, Jasmine, Nemo, Liam, and the crew of the Nautilus are led to Hangman's Island in search of Jafar. Before they can reach the island, the Nautilus begins to take in water, so Jasmine uses a wish to have Aladdin teleport them to the island. While Nemo, Liam, and the Nautilus's crew leave to salvage the Nautilus, Jasmine, Aladdin, and Hook continue tracking Jafar, finding him in a genie lamp inside of Ariel and Eric's hut. With encouragement from Hook, Aladdin, and Ariel, Jasmine defeats Jafar by transforming him into a staff. Instead of using her final wish to free Agrabah, she breaks the spell with the power of her and Aladdin's true love kiss. As Agrabah is restored to its rightful place, the four heroes are taken away from the island to it. ("A Wondrous Place")
