Which is what Regina is doing as we flashback to FairyLand: she gallops down a road, heading for the freedom she so desperately craves.
No can do!
Mommie Dearest just so happens to be nearby and snatches her up before she can cross the border. You see, Mommie has put a little spell on the border that only allows Regina to leave with her future husband, the King.
Mother Knows Best
It would really suck to be her child.
Charming heads back into town and is immediately accosted by the gobsmacked residents of Storybrooke. They’re all looking for answers of one sort or another and are looking to him to provide them. Dr. Whale wants to know if the nuns are still nuns, or are they fuckable now?
Ummmm…..I hate to tell y’all this, but Snow was the brains of the operation.
At the moment the thing he’s most concerned about is figuring out a way to get Snow and Emma. He’ll figure it out, Henry tells him. “In the book things always look worse before there’s really good news.”
“TERRIBLE NEWS!!!!!!” Grumpy shouts. Thankfully Sneezy’s not dead, but the trip he took across the border wiped out his memory, leaving him only with the cursed persona in residence. Coming back to the Storybrooke side doesn’t even fix it!!!
I’m surrounded by crazy people. Good thing my pharmacy is well stocked.
So anyone who tries to leave will lose all their memories of FairyLand and no way (that we know of right now) to get them back. This sends everyone into a renewed sense of panic. Charming tries to calm them all down by saying they should meet him at the town hall in two hours: then he’ll share with him his super rooty tooty fresh and fruity plan.
What is the plan?
Fuck if I know.
Maybe he should’ve given himself four or five hours to plan.
Regina is trying desperately to get her magic to work. She’s practicing on a candle and staring at it super hard, trying to get it to light. She manages to make a few sparks but nothing that’s anything to write home about, so she stomps out of the house running into GingeCrick along the way. He wants her to know that he’s there for her if she needs someone to talk to.
I think this face says it all
Back in FairyLand, Regina and Snow are having a moment together. Well, Snow is pawing through Regina’s things as Regina looks on. Snow finds the ring that Daniel gave to Regina on a gold chain and asks her where she got it. Regina tells her it was from Daniel and then enlightens her about Daniel’s death while strangling her with the chain.
Choking, Not Breathing!
