NARRATOR: Previously on
Once Upon A Time...

I need you to help me find my father.

Do we have a deal?

DAVID: The beans, they're gone.

This is how we're going to escape
the destruction of Storybrooke.

REGINA: There's a fail-safe built
into the curse. A trigger.

Tamara. She's the "she"
August was trying to warn us about.

REGINA: It belonged to my mother.
And I want it back.

The cuff.

They rigged it with something
that blocks magic.

OWEN: Bag her.

BLUE FAIRY: There is
something dark in your life.

My father.

I can send him some place where
he won't be able to use his powers.

A place without magic.

of world is without magic?

BAELFIRE: A better one.

- We have to go through!

Papa, please!
It's the only way we can be together!

No, Bae, I can't!

You coward! You promised!
Don't break our deal!

I have to!











MAN: Out of the road!

What is this place?











Who are you? What do you want?

Please. I don't mean any harm.
(STAMMERING) I was just...


You're hungry?



have as much as you like.


(LAUGHS) Well, I'm not about
to let you starve to death.

What's your name?

- Bae.
- Bae?

How unusual.

I'm Wendy.

Wendy Darling.

How about we sleep in just this once?

The marathon's in three weeks.
I have to train.

Come back to bed,
I'll give you a workout.

I'll see you later.

Okay. Bye.


MAN: No, no. You know perfectly...

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

No. If you won't kiss it,

you're gonna taste it anyway.

Come on, Gold, I didn't do anything.

You stared at her.
And I know how you think.

So kiss my boots.

NEAL: What the hell are you doing?

Stand aside, this doesn't concern you.

Now, go!

Let go of me, son.

I'm surprised you didn't
turn him into a snail.

(LAUGHS) A snail?
What are you talking about?

Lacey, why don't you go
and wait for me in the shop?

I'll be along shortly.

(SCOFFS) You're unreal,
you know that?

You spent years looking for me.

I come into town, you disappear.

Haven't even bothered to meet Tamara.

Why should I concern myself with her?

We're getting married.

It's never gonna last.

Not while you carry a torch for Emma.

You know, you haven't changed one bit.

For a second, I thought you might have.

I started to think maybe
you were worth my time.

I guess I was wrong.

And yet, you're still here.

For Henry. Not you.

As far as I'm concerned, you can stay
the hell away from both of us.

It's okay. She's not here.

When you find her,
you're not gonna hurt her, are you?

No. We just want the beans
she stole from us.

I don't get it. Why would Regina
leave her office unlocked?

Especially when she's keeping
the beans here.


Was keeping them here.

They're gone!

Something's not right.

Regina would never leave
evidence like this behind.

Maybe she already used them
to portal out of Storybrooke.

Without Henry? I don't think so.

What if something bad
happened to her?

Security system says the last time
someone was in the office

was around 6:00 this morning.

They used an override code to get in.

Why would Regina need an override
code on her own alarm?

She wouldn't.

You think someone else broke in
and took the beans?

Well, we haven't
found Regina anywhere

and haven't heard from her.

So something bad did happen to her.

We're gonna find her, Henry. I promise.

There's only one person
who could overpower Regina.


He's too busy with his new/old girlfriend.

No, this wasn't Gold.

This was Tamara.

Haven't you already
gone down that road?

Maybe not far enough.

Or maybe it's time for you to let it go?

August was attacked
the day Tamara came to town.

I don't think that was a coincidence.

What if you're wrong?

If Regina's in trouble, we can't just drop
everything else because of a hunch.

Which is why we're not gonna
drop everything else.

Go to Gold.

I'm sure he has some kind of magic
that can help locate Regina.

Where are you going?

Back to Tamara's room.

Did you get into her office?

Have I ever let you down?

Look what I found.

Are these what I think they are?

Magic beans.

Neal told me all about them.
They open portals.

I bet he told you a lot, huh?

Don't be jealous.

As soon as we're done,

this is coming off.

Yeah, well,
you can have this one instead.

What the hell is that?

I don't know. Regina had it on her.

I'll send it back with the rest of the data.

I think the home office
is gonna have a field day

with everything we've collected so far.

I still have one more thing
that I have to do.

Make it quick.
We'll be getting our instructions soon.

Oh, this isn't gonna take long.

Whatever they're offering you,

it's not worth it.

Well, considering they're offering
to help me kill Rumplestiltskin,

I'd say it is.

And you actually trust them?


You don't even know
who you're working for.


Morning, Regina.

This part of your mission?


No, this is... This is personal.

See, this is about my father.

I already told you. He left town.

Yet he never came to find his only son?

Hook, would you mind
lending me a hand?

Preferably your good one?

Sorry, mate,

I'm gonna have to say no.

When you're interested
in killing Rumplestiltskin

and not torturing the Queen, find me.

Guess it's just me and you.




Is that supposed to frighten me?

Well, it should.

You see,
this is how we deal with your kind.

- And yes, it's going to be




how unpleasant?


that depends

on you.



where is my father?




I brought as much as I could.

And your parents
don't suspect anything?

They're grown-ups.

They can't see anything
that's not right in front of them.

GEORGE: We can't, can we?


Please, Father, let me explain.

How long have you been hiding
in my house?

Only a few weeks, Father.
He was hungry, on the streets...

GEORGE: I was talking to him.

Where's your family?

My mother died.

My father...

He's dead, too.

Look, I'm sorry. I'll leave right away, sir.

You're not going anywhere.

The streets are no place for a boy.

Please don't send me
to the workhouses.

We'll do nothing of the sort.

You'll stay. Right here.



Welcome to our home.


I need to search your room
for real this time.

You want to tell me
what this is about, Sheriff?

Where's your fianc?e?

She's on a run.
What do you think she did this time?

Regina's gone missing.

And you think she...

You're still on Tamara?
You've got to be kidding me.

She came to town to support me,
her fianc?e. She's not a kidnapper.

Where'd she go running?

The same place she goes
every morning. The woods.

How long has she been gone?

A couple of hours. Does it matter?
She's training for a marathon.

If she runs in the woods,
then why did she track sand in here?

Maybe she likes
to run along the beach instead.

What does that prove?

That she lied to you.

If she lied about this, then you can bet
she's lied about other things, too.

Or maybe she just likes
to run on the beach.

One way to find out.

Bae, come to the window.

What is it?

The Shadow? Is it coming tonight?

I hope so.

The what?

A few weeks ago,

right about the time you got here,

this shadow, it came to the window.

Only it's not attached to a body.

And it can do so many wonderful things,

like change its shape and fly
and travel between worlds.

And do you know why?

Because it has magic.

Whatever you do,

promise me you'll never open
that window again.

Promise me you won't
talk to the Shadow.

- Don't be silly.
- Magic is dangerous.

It always comes with a price.

You're just saying that
'cause you don't believe.

No, I do believe.

That's the point. I've seen magic.

I come from another land.
A land where magic is everhere.

Is that really true?

Because it sounds wonderful.

It isn't what you think.

Magic is the reason I left.

I lost everything because of it.

Your mother and father.

Magic destroyed my family.

I don't want it to do the same to yours.

If the Shadow comes back,

promise me you won't go
anywhere near it.

All right, Bae.

I promise.


Sorry to interrupt the party.

Well, I certainly don't remember
inviting you two.

We're closed.

MARY: Not to us.

We need your help.

Regina's missing and we think
she might be in danger.

Just the way I like her.
Now, if you'll excuse me...

I don't think so.

Whatever your feelings are
about Regina,

you still owe me a favor.

Lacey, if you could excuse us,
I have some business to attend to.

Make it quick.

I'm sure I can whip up something
to find Regina.

But tell me,

why do the Charmings
want to help the Evil Queen?

Because I owe her.
After what I did to Cora.


Never underestimate the power
of a guilty conscience.

What is that?

This is one of Regina's tears.

Why do you have one of Regina's tears?

Because I do.

This spell, however, requires two tears.

You want one from me?

Well, just think
of a dark moment, dearie.

Something bleak and hopeless.

I know you have a few.


Now, when you drop this into your eye,

you will be connected with Regina,
wherever she is.

Whatever she sees, you'll see.

Whatever she feels, you'll feel.

How long does the spell last?

Long enough to lead you to her.

And with that, I've fulfilled
my end of the bargain.


Always a pleasure.


So it's...

So it's true.

I heard everything.


You really can do magic.

I think you might want
to pour yourself another drink.


(SIGHS) You don't have to do this,
you know.

You've been through enough already.

That's why I do have to do it.

My heart is dark because
of what I did to Regina.

If I can help find her,
if we could save her,

maybe it'll help
let some of the light back in.






Mary Margaret!




Bae, look! It's him! The Shadow!

No, no, Wendy. Get away from there.

You don't have to be afraid.
He doesn't want to hurt us.

He's from another land.
A land with magic.

But it's different
from where you came from.

Wendy, please, don't listen to him.

It's called Neverland.
And there are no grown-ups there.

And children never grow old.

And we can do anything we want,
even fly!

It's a trick! Don't go with him!

You don't need magic.

You have a family, right here.

That's the only thing that matters!

This is what I've always dreamed of.

You just don't believe.



So, where do you think
she's hiding Regina?

In a sand castle?

They have to be somewhere.

Look, Emma,

you're letting your emotions
get in the way of your judgment.

Do you really think this is all about me
trying to break up you and Tamara?

What do you want to hear, Neal?

That it killed me you never
came looking for me

- even once I was locked up?
- Emma...

That it didn't hurt that you found
Tallahassee with someone else?



Hey! What are you doing down here?

We were... We just...
I thought you go running in the woods?

Yeah, I start in the woods.
But then I run along the beach.

Everything all right?

Regina's missing.

Oh, my God! That's terrible.

I thought maybe she was down here,
but I was wrong.

Well, I'm sure she'll turn up somewhere.

Let me know if I can help at all.

- I'll see you later.
- Okay.


I think I should go.

I wanted to go to jail for you.


It kills me that I let August
talk me into letting you go.

I don't want to hear it...

Okay, but I have to say it.

I wanted to look for you.

I just...

I was too afraid.

Of what?

That you would never forgive me.

'Cause I never forgave myself.

There hasn't been a day that's gone by

that I don't regret having left you.

I'm sorry, Emma.

For everything.

Me, too.

Everything's taken care of.

They bought it?

As far as Emma and Neal
are concerned,

I'm just running on the beach.

How are things going with the Queen?

You know, she's not exactly cooperative.

But that's all about to change.

Right, Regina?





(WEAKLY) You have no idea
who you're dealing with.

Actually, no, you have no idea
who you are dealing with.

A couple of fools

in over their heads
who go around stealing magic?

Stealing magic? (CHUCKLES)

That's what you think we're here to do?

We're not here to steal magic.

We're here to destroy it.

Magic does not belong in this world.

It's unholy.

We're here to cleanse this land of it.


You think

you can destroy magic?

Just the two of you?

Well, who said there's only two of us?

We're everhere, Regina.

See, after I left Storybrooke,

as a boy,

I was babbling about magic.
About what I had seen.

And what had happened to my father.

Now, most folks, they wrote me off.

But some didn't. And they found me.



People that know that magic is real.

And that it doesn't belong in this world.
And are willing to do something about it.

This little quest of yours?

To cleanse the world of magic?

It's not gonna work.

Of course it will.

We've done it before.

And we'll do it again.

I mean, do you think that Storybrooke

is the first time that magic
has crossed over?

Magic has been doing its damage
for a long time.

And people like us,

we're here to stop it.


Mary Margaret?

You okay?

(WHISPERING) It was awful.

The worst pain I've ever felt.

Wherever Regina is, she's powerless.
She can't fight back.

Could you see where she was?

Could you see
who was keeping her there?

I just remember


And screaming.

Okay, okay. Okay.


The smallest detail might lead us to her.


My hands were tied down.

And my legs...

It was cold.

And it smelled weird,

like sardines...

I don't know!
I wish I could remember more.


So she didn't see anything?

DAVID: No, not much.

She could sense Regina was in pain.

It was cold. She was strapped down.

Oh, yeah, she said
she could smell sardines.


Get down to the docks right now.

I was right.

Tamara was not down here for a run.
She was in there,

with Regina.




It's all right.

It's just me.

I thought I'd never see you again.

How long was I gone?

Just the night.

It felt like so much longer.


As though time works differently
in Neverland.

So, what was it like over there?

It's an island.

Where there are no grown-ups
to tell you what to do.

But there are mermaids and fairies
and all sorts of mystical creatures.

Then why did you return?

Because when night fell,

that's when all the children
started to miss their parents.

And they cried through the night.

Why don't they go home?

The Shadow won't let them.

There's a reason it's called Neverland.

Because once you set foot on its soil,

the Shadow never lets you leave.

How did you escape?

He let me go.

Because he didn't want me.

He wanted a boy.

He's coming back tonight to take
one of my brothers in my place.

You said magic was bad
and you were right, Bae.

It's going to destroy my family.


I won't let anything bad happen to you
or this family.



So, why didn't you tell me sooner?

Because magic
always comes with a price.

It tends to drive away the people
I care about most.

Well, then you've been
caring about the wrong people.

What else can you do?

- Anything.

There are many perks
to being the Dark One.

Immortality being one of them, right?

Could you...

Could you keep me young?



'Cause then we can be together forever.

Nothing can keep us apart.


There is one thing.

What is it?

Immortal means to live forever,

it doesn't mean one can't be killed.

There was a prophecy

that someone might be my undoing.

Well, do you know who this someone is?

Then get rid of them. Stop them.

It's complicated.

Something's standing in my way.

I thought you were a man

who wouldn't let anything
stand in his way.


I am.


You sure you want to be here?

I'm not gonna leave you alone
in this place.

If something goes down with Tamara,
I need to know you've got my back.

Emma, if Tamara is hiding Regina here,

in her evil lair by the docks,

yeah, I got your back.





What the hell, guys?


So that doesn't happen again.

You and Mary Margaret
take the basement.

We'll search the main floor.

Regina's got to be here somewhere.

TAMARA: Time to go.

They found us.

Who? Emma and Neal?

I thought that you took care of them.

Yeah, so did I. We need to go.

No. No, no, no, no, no.
I need more time with her.

Look, Greg, if you get caught,
this whole thing is blown...

We wouldn't even know about this town
if it wasn't for my dad.

I'm not leaving
until I find out where he is.


Meet me at the rendezvous point
when you're done.

I'm moving up the timeline.

I'm gonna give you one last chance.

Tell me where my father is.

Okay, time's up.


Where is he?


I killed him the minute you ran away.

No, you're lying to me.

Don't believe me? Go see for yourself.

I buried his body at your campsite.

I doubt he gets many visitors there.

Now, go ahead and kill me.

I just wanted to see the look
on your face when I...



Good night, my treasures.



We have work to do.

Okay, don't worry.

The Shadow's not taking anyone tonight.


Thank you, Bae.

You can thank me in the morning.

Okay, everyone to their beds.



Don't be frightened.


The Shadow, he's here.


Get in the crawl space!
Come on, let's go!


- Where's Michael?
- Michael.


Don't do it! Don't go with him!


Michael, step back.

You want him? Take me instead.

Bae, no!

But you have to promise
never to bother this family again.

No, Bae, you can't.

I won't let magic destroy this family.

This is the only way.

You have to let me go.

Thank you, Wendy,

for making me part of your family.






You feel that?

That's the end of you.

That's scary, ain't it?

Now you're never going to
hurt anyone ever again.

Don't move.


We can't leave her.

She'll die if we don't get her help.

We got to get her to Mother Superior.

Emma, you got to block the exits.

Already on it. You guys all right?

Yeah, we're fine. We found Regina.

But Mendell, he's coming your way.

Greg Mendell?

So I was right. It wasn't Tamara.



it was.

I just had some help.

What are you doing, Tamara?

I have to keep magic
out of this world, Neal.

It doesn't belong here.

You, more than anyone, should
understand that it's a poison.

You've been lying to me.

How long have you been lying to me?

This is more important than any...

How long?

Since the beginning.
Since I spilled coffee on you.

It wasn't an accident.

You planned it all, none of it was real.

Neal, you're a good man. I know that.

So please try to understand.
I had a job to do.

An important one.

One I think you can agree with.

You never loved me.


I can't let you leave here, Tamara.

Neal, please don't make me.




I'm sorry, Neal.

You should be.


It's over.

No, it's not.




I got you! I got you!

We've got to get you to a hospital.


- Neal!
- Emma!

You can't hold both of us.

I'm not letting go of you.


You have to.

Neal, you're shot.

If you fall through that portal, you'll die,
no matter what world you land in.

I know, but, Emma, Henry needs you.

He can't lose both of us.

Don't make him grow up like we did.

Please don't let go!

I need you.

I love you.

I love you, too.





No, no, no, no, no.




Now that the cuff is off,

she's gonna be okay,
given time and rest.

- Her magic will return.

What happened?

What is it?

Where's Neal?

He's gone.

She killed him.



- Neverland.

No, no, you're not taking me there!







MAN: Steady!


Good lad.

Get the sea out of your lungs.

Who are you?

The name is Hook.

Captain Hook.

Welcome aboard the Jolly Roger,
my boy.


I'm so sorry.

How am I gonna tell Henry?


You saved me?


You really think we'd let you die?

Despite our differences, we're family.

Where are they?

Where are Greg and Tamara?

They got away.

(EXHALES) So they still have it.

Still have what?

I'm sorry about your father.

Me, too.

Do the folks back at the home office
know anything about it?

Yeah. They did.

And you're never gonna believe
what it does.

A trigger?

- That will destroy Storybrooke.
- No.

I had a fail-safe built into the curse.

And why exactly
were you carrying it around?

She was gonna destroy us,
Mary Margaret.

I was going to use the beans

to take Henry back
to the enchanted forest.

And in the process kill all of us.

You want to discuss justification?

You were going to abandon me.

Or shall we discuss
a more pressing issue?

Which is that I no longer
control the trigger.

What are we supposed to do with it?

They want us to move to the next phase.



there's only one way
to get what we all want.

We have to blow Storybrooke
off the map.
