There’s something I read once, I can’t remember the name of the book, or even what it was about. It was a sentence said by a self-proclaimed book lover: “I gnaw on books like bones.” Something about that visual has always stuck with me; it speaks to me in a really odd way, but I find myself thinking about it now as I watch Belle discover the cache of treasure inside that locked library.
Anyway, her joy at finding the library is short lived as a RedCapped stranger approaches her and asks if she’s meeting anyone here. Nope.
In FairyLand the Cap’n and his men have had their fill of drink and are now heading back to the ship. I’m actually surprised that Rumpy didn’t start something with the Cap’n in the bar, instead waiting until he and his crew have left and then “accidentally” bumping into him. As expected Killian takes offense to being bumped with no apology offered, first calling him a gutter rat, but then changing his mind, saying Rumpy looks more like a crocodile. Get it? CROCODILE. OY.
All of the crews’ laughter dies down once they see that they’ve been mocking the dark one.
HA! Rumpy asks how Milah is but Killian doesn’t know who Rumpy is talking about. Or does he? Rumpy tells him he’s only too happy to dig out the memory, but the thing is it does get a little messy. Killian tells Rumpy that Milah actually died some time ago, but that doesn’t get him off the hook. He challenges Killian to a duel at dawn. And if he’s a no show, Rumpy will gut his crew like de fish.
Back in Storybrooke, Rumpy has stopped by Snow’s place to ask Charming for his help. As you might imagine, helping Rumpy is not high on Charming’s list of things to do, but Rumpy appeals to Charming’s feelings, how he misses his wife and child, and so Charming agrees to help him find Belle.
It must be dawn in FairyLand because the time has come for the Killlian and Rumpy Smackdown Event. Rumpy tosses him a beat up sword to use but Killian declines, preferring to use his own. Trouble with that is Rumpy’s already taken it because the thought of killing him with his own sword was just too delicious.
The duel begins ad Cap’n Killian is holding his own even with Rumpy cheating and using magic. Until his sword breaks off. Uh oh. I guess this is it.
Milah is alive?!? I have to admit, I did not see that one coming.
