But never fear, Regina knows someone that can help. “Gold” Emma says. “Rumpelstiltskin” Regina corrects.
Over in Fairyland, Regina is pacing, waiting to find out what is going on with Charming. The Huntsman drew the short straw and gets to be the one to tell her that Charming escaped. She responds by magically slamming him into a wall. He tells Regina not to worry; he’ll find him.
Make sure you pull his pants down first!
She tells him not to worry about tracking Charming down; she spies him in her magic mirror, jogging along and magics him into the endless forest where she previously sent Hansel and Gretel. Uh oh! How will he ever find Snow now?
Charming isn’t interested in Rumpy’s help and tells him to take a flying leap, but Rumpy’s just not gonna take no for an answer. First he pickpockets Charming, stealing his mommy’s ring, and then kicks some Charming booty when said Prince decides to pull his sword out.
Rumpy doesn’t even get why Charming is fighting him. After all, they both want the same thing; a Charming/Snow mash up. Chowing? Snarming? Snowming?
Back in Storybrooke, Mary Margaret runs into David. He tells her he was wrong. About her. About him. About everything. He admits he didn’t believe in her and says he wishes he had a good reason why. But it’s like he keeps making these wrong decisions and he doesn’t understand why they keep happening.
He thinks his life has made absolutely no sense at all since he woke up from his coma. Well, except for her. She’s the only thing that makes sense in his fucked up life. He tells her he loves her and that he’s going to move into the apartment that Kathryn got when she was going to move to Boston. Will Mary Margaret go with him? Nope.
In Fairyland Charming has agreed to help and so Rumpy pulls out the vial of bottled love that he made from Charming and Snow’s hair. He tells Charming that it is the most powerful magic of all. Charming can’t believe that Rumpy knows anything about love at all and Rumpy admits that he may not be as well versed as Charming in the subject, but he does know a thing or two.
Charming finds it hard to believe that Rumpy has ever been in love, but he has. It was a brief moment of light amidst the darkness. What happened? “She died.” NO SHE DIDN’T RUMPY!!!! Damn. I hate it when they can’t hear you!
Here’s the thing, Rumpy tells him; love can slip through your fingers at any time. It’s the most powerful magic in the world, powerful enough to break ANY curse, and so it must be protected at all costs. Here’s where Charming comes in; Rumpy needs him to help protect the potion by putting it in a safe place: inside the belly of the beast. Charming wonders why Rumpy would hide it. “Let’s just say I’m saving it for a rainy day.” Gigglegigglegiggle. His giggles really creep me out.
Over in Storybrooke, Emma and Regina head over to Gold’s Pawnshop and he instantly knows that Emma’s starting humming a certain Monkees song. But can he help them help Henry? Well, ya see, true love is a powerful potion, he tells them, with the ability to break any curse. And it just so happens that he added a drop of his bottled true love to the parchment for the Dark Curse. This is why only Emma can break it; both she and the curse are a product of Snow and Charming’s true love.
