Anyone else thinking there’s more to their relationship than meets the eye? Little brother, maybe??
Back in the forest, they hear Red give the all-clear howl, and they move on out. Snow scales the castle wall, taking on a couple of guards once she’s gotten up and over; dealing with them nicely. The rest of the Merry Men follow suit and soon enough they’re hacking away at the castle guards.
Just when they think they’ve won…..more guards arrive. What’s a kickass girl to do?
Call in that air support!
Damn! Looks like even faeries get PMS! The faeries hurl their dust at the guards, blowing them up and knocking them out.
We catch up with Henry who has decided to pay August a visit to tell him he HAS GOT TOmake Emma believe in the curse.
What the fuck do you think I’ve been trying to do kid?!?!?
He tells Henry he has failed. And now he is paying the price for that failure. Soon he won’t be able to do anything at all because he is slowly but surely turning back into wood. He tells Henry it started in his legs, but now it’s spreading. Can he handle the unvarnished truth?
You want me on those strings! You NEED me on those strings!!!
Okay. That was probably going a bit too far.
Henry thinks they can just show Emma his legs and arms; then she’ll have to believe! August clues him in to how strong Emma’s denial is. There’s nothing more that he can do, and it’s it getting hard to walk and ride, soon it’s going to be hard to even breathe. He wants to spend the time he’s got left with his dad. Henry gets it, but is sad that everyone is giving up. Now it’s all up to him.
I’ve soooo got this
Later, Emma meets up with Archie over at Granny’s; she wants him to help her win custody of Henry. Archie may like Emma more than Regina, but he is no fool. He points out to Emma just how hard it will be for her to win a custody case against the mayor. He thinks if she really wants what’s best for Henry, she’ll stop fighting Regina for him. It’s really him that keeps getting caught in their cross fire.
In Fairyland, Snow runs down to the dungeon where Charming is waiting. Or not. You see, the Charming in the cell is only a reflection; a mirror portal view to the real Charming.
They touch hands against their respective side of the mirror before Regina breaks up their reunion, telling them she has no interest in cleaning tongue marks off her mirror. HAHAHAHAHAHA! She may be a bitch, but she sure is funny sometimes!
She offers Snow a meeting, a parley if you will. Unarmed, alone. At that place they were at that one time. Snow knows what she means and agrees to meet her there. The Merry Men don’t like it one bit; they don’t trust Regina at all. Neither does Snow, but she tells them this is something she has to do, and on her own.
Regina is a busy little bee over in Storybrooke. She takes Jefferson on a little trip to her daddy’s crypt; the place where she still has a little bit of magic left. It’s here that she keeps all the things she brought with her from Fairyland. She gathers up some gadgets and gizmos and throws them in his hat. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
Jefferson knows they’re not going to have enough to get them back there, but perhaps….if she has something with enough magic…..he may be able to retrieve something from Fairyland and bring it here.
Not my precious!!!
