After the realms are restored, following the Final Battle of Storybrooke, the Caterpillar continues smoking.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland

It is revealed that the Caterpillar owns a place called Underland which is inside the giant mushroom he is commonly seen residing on. He is an enemy of Will Scarlet, who owes the Caterpillar a multitude of debts. When Jafar takes over the Red Queen's palace, he manages to get the Caterpillar to divulge information about a fearsome creature known as the Jabberwocky. Some time later down the track, Alice shrinks herself with some of the Magic Mushroom and manages to take the Lost-and-Found from the Caterpillar without him realizing.
