Aurora obviously doesn’t because she kicks Cora. LOL! I’m starting to like her! Aurora basically tells Cora to go fuck herself so Cora magically gags her and then sends a little message via crow to Snow.
What’s that you say? Little Aurora is stuck in a well?
So now they know that Cora’s willing to trade Aurora for the compass and that if they don’t make a deal with her she’ll kill the little princess. Mulan’s like it’s a no brainer, let’s go! But Snow and Emma want to figure out a way to get Aurora back AND keep the compass.
Don’t fuck with me fellas. I’m going to be the filling in an Aurora/Phillip sandwich if it’s the last thing I do!
Emma says she climbed a beanstalk for the compass; Mulan can go get her own! Snow intervenes, asking Mulan to give them a couple of hours; if they haven’t come up with a plan by then they’ll let her trade the compass for Aurora.
It’s hopeless! Their Rumpy access pass has been revoked. Well, not entirely. Snow says she thinks if she can go into a deep enough sleep, one where all her defenses are down, she’ll be able to get back to the flame room. But how can she do that? With Mulan’s special poppy powder.
Those poppies don’t just grow on trees ya know.
But Mulan does know of a place that might have some poppies they can use. It’s a bit of a hike, but she thinks they can make it there in time if they hurry. So off they go (to see the wizard???)
Back with Henry and company, Rumpy helps Henry out by magically healing his burn. I know we’ve talked about it before but I love that Rumpy always seems to have a soft spot for the kiddies. That (and his love for Belle) are going to be his redemption in the end, don’t you think?
Anyway, Charming does NOT want Henry to go back to the flame room, but Rumpy knows he’s got to get back there to tell Aurora about the squid ink. Cora is so bad it’s worth the risk. Besides, Aurora is gone, Regina chimes in; why would they send Henry back there when there will be no one there to even get the message.
Wait a schminute!
Charming figures out that Snow can get back to that room (and will) because she was once under a sleeping curse as well. He’s certain that she’ll be there in Aurora’s place. And he’ll be waiting. Wait. What? Regina looks at him like he’s crazy and Rumpy reminds him that it’s not as simple as just saying he’s going. Charming knows; they’ll have to put him under a sleeping curse is all.
Is Christmas coming early this year?
