Once Upon a Time (2011–2018): Season 2, Episode 22 - And Straight on 'til Morning - full transcript

As Greg and Tamara set out to destroy Storybrooke, Regina tries to delay the destruction so that the rest of the town can escape. Meanwhile, Hook takes Bae on as a crew member on his ship, ignoring Smee's advice to use Bae to exact revenge.

Milah was quite beautiful,
wasn't she?

Don't worry, cap'n.
You'll avenge her.

No matter what it takes,

I know you'll find a way
to kill Rumplestiltskin.

Mr. Smee, what news
of the day's catch?

The boy we yanked
from the sea.

He's still asleep.

A bit waterlogged and
smells of catfish,

but he'll live.

Where do you suppose
he came from? Hmm?

There aren't many other
ships in the area,

and his clothes are certainly
not of this land.

What if the boy
belongs to him?

The ones he kidnaps
from the other world.

I-I'd bet my rations on it.

Indeed. But could
we be so lucky?


He'll be looking for us.

He knows this land
better than we do.

Mr. Smee...

Are you not a connoisseur
of rare and valuable objects?

If we return the boy to him,

it could be the very key
to our survival in Neverland.

(Ship rattling)

(Door creaks)

Ahoy there.

Aren't you lucky to be alive?


I'm a prisoner of pirates
in a land cursed with magic.

Well, most children
think they've found paradise

when they lay their eyes
on Neverland's magic.

Why else leave home
the first place?

I came here so a family
I loved could live.

Well, aren't you
quite the hero?

What would you know about that?


A pirate saved your scrawny bones

from the curse of the mermaids.

A pirate killed my mother
and tore apart my family.

What about your father?

He left me.

He's a coward.

What's your name, boy?

I don't have to answer you.

Ooh. Well, I can make you.

But to prove that not all
pirates are as you fear,

I'll simply ask again.

(Lowered voice) What's your name?


Welcome aboard, Baelfire.

It's a pirate's life for you.

And Straight on 'Til Morning


(Rope creaking)


(Truck door closes)

Gold. What are you doing here?

Well, my son made it clear
I'm to stay away from him,

so... I'm spending some time
with my grandson instead.

Emma, it's okay.
Why don't you go talk to Henry?

We'll handle this.

- Emma.
- Henry, hey.

Mr. Gold, we have some news
we need to share with you,

and it's not good.

Not interested.

It's about your son.

Yeah. What about him?

I... have something really...

Tamara shot him.


He's dead?

They used a bean to open a portal.

Neal was hurt so badly,
he fell through.


He's gone.

Bae wasn't supposed to die.

Greg and Tamara... they took
something from Regina...

a magical trigger.

A fail-safe in the curse
that can destroy Storybrooke.

If they activate it,
it's a self-destruct.

Everyone not born in this world
will die.

I know this is hard,
but we need your help.


They killed your son in cold blood,

- and you don't wanna stop them?
- They didn't kill my son.

(Whispers) I did.

(Normal voice) I brought magic
to this world to find Bae.

And now he's dead.

Magic always has a price,
and this... this is it.

But I'm prepared to pay it.

But... we'll die. You'll die.

No, I've made my peace with that.

It's just ahead.

You sure whoever's in
charge of you guys

doesn't want you to die
in a mine collapse?

Just keep moving.

Who is telling you what to do?

You know what
That's not your concern.

It's not ours, either.

Not your concern?

So you're telling me
you don't know who commands you?

(Sighs) Unlike you, Hook,
we believe in something.

We have faith
in the sacredness of our cause.

We're here.

So your sacred cause is
pilfering a dwarf's pickaxe?


had this in her pocket
when you turned her over to us.

It's a trigger,

and this axe,
according to our people,

is what activates it.

You're going to destroy
an entire town

and kill everyone in it...

Yeah, including your enemy.

Rumplestiltskin won't
be immune to this?

None of your kind will be.

Once this thing gets activated,

nothing can shut it off.

Greg: This whole town will
revert to the forest it was.

So tell us, Hook. We're willing
to die for our cause.

Are you willing to die for yours?


(Breathing heavily)


(Whooshing and humming)








- Oh! Henry.
- Mom!



(Rumbling subsides)
Regina, was that...

Yes. The diamond was activated.

So we're all gonna die.

You were born here, so you'll live.


I'll be alone.

- I'm so sorry, Henry. It's gonna happen.
- I'm not gonna let it.

You did this. Now make it stop.

I can't. There's no way.

Well, figure it out.
It's your fault.

Stop! I already lost my dad.
I don't wanna lose anyone else.

We have to work together.

From the mouths of babes.
I'd say the lad has a point.

That's for the last time we met.

Bloody hell.

And tell us why you're here

before I use something else
other than my fist.

I think threatening to kill me
is a bit redundant

when we're all about to die anyway.

No thanks to you.
Regina just told us

you were working
with Tamara and Greg

to get your revenge.

Well, that was before
they told me I had to die

to get it.

We don't have time for this.
We have a real problem.

Which is why I'm here,
'cause staring death in the face

has made me realize
if there's one thing

I want more than my revenge,
it's my life.

So should we start this thing
now and then resume bickering?

There is no stopping it.

And the best thing I can do
is slow it down,

but that will only
delay the inevitable.

It'll give us the time we need.

The time for what?

Steal back the beans.

Use them to get everyone back
into the Enchanted Forest

before Storybrooke is gone.

How? We don't know where
Greg and Tamara are.

Well, I do. I can help.

Help yourself. You'll take them
and leave us all behind.

- Why should we trust you?
- No, we won't have to.

I'll go with him.
If he tries anything,

I'll shoot him in the face.

- Quite hostile, aren't we?
- Just being clear.

I'll take Regina to slow down
the diamond,

give you guys time.

Mary Margaret, take Henry.
Gather everyone.

Make sure they're ready to go
as soon as we have those beans.

Henry, before you go...

I'm sorry for what's happened.

I... tried to be the person
that you wanted me to be,

and I failed.

But I won't let you be alone.

You just know that I love you.

I love you, too.

The things we do for our children.

Smee: Captain, you have
to give them the boy.

They've killed for less.

The sooner we give
them what they want,

the sooner they leave us alone.

No. I can't part with him now,

not when I know he's
The Dark One's son.

Can't be chance that
brought him here.

Providence must be at work.

He is the key to my revenge.

I won't lose him.

Do you know who we are?

You're the lost ones.
You work for him.

We're looking for a boy
who was seen adrift nearby.

A boy he has a
particular interest in.

Then I'm afraid I have
to send you away disappointed.

As you can see, we're only men here.

Then you won't mind
if we search your ship.

Be my guest.

(Door creaks, thud)

Told you, no one here but me crew.

You're new to this land,

which means I should warn you.

Do you know what he does
to people who lie to him?


But I gather it hurts.

It does.

He rips your shadow

right from your body.


(Footsteps approach)

(Closes hatch)

If you find him,
you know who he belongs to.

Good-bye, captain.

(Hatch creaks)

I thought pirates only cared
about themselves.

Well, you have a lot to learn, boy.

(Door bells jingle,
sneezy speaking indistinctly)

A sure sign of impending doom.


It ain't looting if the stuff
you find's already yours.

We need Sneezy's drinking stein.

We can bring his memories back.

Oh, can you?

Mother Superior finally
figured it out.

He needs to drink this
out of his old stein...

something important to him.

So she found a solution
to the memory problem? Today?

In the nick of time
before we all die?

Die? Who's dying?

She's been working on it all along.

Then when she had to transform
August back to Pinocchio,

she found the ingredient she needed.

A hair from Pinocchio's head.

Someone who returned
to who he should be...

someone who wasn't cursed.

So you're gonna wake your friend up

to tell him he's about to die?

- I don't want that.
- Shut it, Clark.

He wants to know who he is
and be with his family,

no matter how much time he has left.

(Scoffs) Not if I'm gonna die.

- Let's take him back to Granny's.
- Do it there.

(Scoffs) Hey, guys.

If I don't have a family, will I still die?
(Door bells jingle)

You know, I really don't think
it's necessary,

you know, to go through this.

(Door bells jingle)
I asked her to make a second dose.

This is for you.

Well, what am I supposed
to do with that?

Belle once helped
remind me who I was.

I've never forgotten.

I wanna return the favor.

Don't let her die as Lacey.

(Door opens, bells jingle)

(Clears throat)

(Door closes)

What... what was all that about?

Oh, that was nothing.

(Seagulls calling)

(Papers rustling)

(Brakes squeal, engine turns off)

Over there. Let's go.

(Boom, rumbling)

Time's running out.

Oh, is that what that means?

(Men speaking indistinctly)

(Seagulls crying)

Your sea legs aren't bad
for a landlubber.

Yeah, but I still get queasy.

Oh, it'll pass.

Just think of yourself
as an extension of the ship.

Do you care to try a
hand at the helm?

I know nothing of sailing.

Oh, once you get your bearings,
it's as easy as pie.


The left side is called "port."

And the right side
is called "starboard."


Go two notches to port.

Well done, mate.

You were born
with the sea in your blood.


You spoke of your mother's fate,

but your father...
what became of him?

You say he left you?

It's a long story.

It's one that I know well.

When I was a boy,
my father and I boarded a ship

with plans to travel the realms.

One morning, I awoke,
and he was gone.

Turned out he was a fugitive.

He had fled in the middle
of the night to avoid capture.

He abandoned you?


That he did.

If I tell you something,

will you promise not
to tell the crew?

They might become frightened.

My father... the reason
why I don't speak of him

is because... he's The Dark One.

He once was a man,

but when I got drafted
to the ogre wars,

he wanted to protect me.

So he went in search
of The Dark One's dagger.

And once he got it, he grew obsessed

with the power it gave him.

He draws his power from a dagger?

Yes. It's the only weapon
that can kill him.

And the only thing
he truly cares about anymore.

He chose it over me.

My papa abandoned me, too.

David: So, tell me, Hook,

all this time, it's been
about revenge for you?

Why is that suddenly
so important to you

that you survive?

I know what I'm fighting for...
my family.

What are you fighting for?

Myself. That's plenty of
motivation, I can assure you.

(Clank in distance)

(Lowered voice) Quiet.


The beans... give 'em to me.

You mean these?



Oh! Ohh!




(Thud) Aah!

No! Come on. We got what we need.


What are you doing?
They've got the beans!

Not all of them. I snagged one.

Where are the rest?

Who cares? All we need is one.

Hey! Live to fight
another day, mate.

I'm not your mate.

I can feel it.

It's like the oxygen's being
sucked out of the air.

Not the oxygen.

The magic.

There it is.

Once it stops glowing,
its destruction is achieved,

and then...

well, then we'll see
the real carnage.


I'll try to contain its energy
as long as I can.

It won't be long.
We'll have the bean soon.

Then we can get the
hell out of here.

Slowing the device...

It's going to require
all the strength I have.

You're not coming with us, are you?

When you said good-bye to Henry,

you... were saying good-bye.

He knows I love him, doesn't he?

Regina, no, there has
gotta be another way.

You were right, you know.

Everything that's happening...
it's my fault.

I created this device.

It's only fitting that
it takes my life.

What am I supposed to tell Henry?

Tell him that in the end,

it wasn't too late for me
to do the right thing.

Regina, please...

Everyone looks at me
as the Evil Queen,

including my son.

I may die as Regina.



(People screaming)

To the end of the world.

(Bottle clatters)

Come on. It'll help numb it.

I'll, uh, I'll drink to that.

Oh. I'm... I'm so sorry.

Uh, here. I got it. I got it.

- Sorry.
- S-stop. Stop.

- Put that down.
- It's just an old rag.

It belonged to someone
very important.

You wouldn't understand.

I said I'm sorry.




That cup again.

What is it?

It's something from my past...

From our past.

And I'm sorry.

Let's not fight.


(Cup clatters)



(Crying) Belle.

(Crying) Rumple.


I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry. I didn't wanna
wake you up to die.

But I needed you.

You lost your son.

I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry.

(Voice breaking) I've failed.

I've failed.

(Door bells jingle)
We have the beans.

All right.
(All exclaim)

You did it?


You okay?

Oh, it's... grazed. It's fine.

Okay, let's get going. Henry?

W-where's my mom?

Regina can hold off
the self-destruct device

long enough for us to escape, but...

But what?

She won't survive.

No. No.

Henry, I'm sorry. I promised her
I'd get you to safety.

But we can't do this. She's family.

We don't leave family behind.

I know, but this is what she wants.

We have a way out.
We have to take it.

We saved her from being
killed by the wraith.

How is this any different?

The wraith.


We sent it through a portal.

Why can't we do the same thing
with the self-destruct?

- Because we don't know if it's
going to work. - It could.


It's too risky.
No one will go along with it.

Yes, we will.

Because it's the
right thing to do.

Look, Snow White and The Prince
have always led us before,

and we've always won.

- So... who's willing to let them lead
us again? - You can count on us.

- Me.
- Me!

- Always.
Man: Me.

Thank you, Archie.

- Oh, this is what we should do.
- And will do.

I know we haven't had
a lot of chances to be parents,

but give us this one.
Let us do the right thing.

It's not too late.

I just don't want him to be alone.

I don't want him to grow up
the way I did.

(Loud boom)


This plan could fail.

If we use that bean now,
we can get away for sure.

We will survive.

But it's wrong.
Emma, I killed her mother.

You did that to Cora
because you had to.

I did it because it was easy.

It was a mistake.

There were other paths...

harder paths,
and I wish I had taken them.

So please, Emma, honey...

Let's take the hard path.

Because if we don't,
we will be building a future

on Regina's blood.


You're all mad.

- I can live with myself.
- Give it back.

If she wants to die for us,
I say let her.

You and I... we
understand each other.

Look out for yourself,

- and you'll never get hurt, right?
- Worked quite well for me.

Yeah, till the day that it doesn't.

We're doing this.
It might be stupid.

It might be crazy,
but we're doing it.

So... you can join us

and be a part of something,

or you can do what
you can do best and be alone.

Quite passionate, Swan.

(Door bells jingle, door opens)

Why are you really doing this?

The kid just lost his father today.

I'm not letting him
lose a mother, too.

His father?

Who's Henry's father?




(Door bells jingle)


Why is Baelfire still
aboard the "Jolly Roger"?

The boy has given you
a path to revenge,

but you can't walk that path
if you're dead.

Careful, Smee.

Captain, you know quite well
that he is after the boy.

If you don't surrender
Baelfire to him,

the... the lost ones will take him
anyway and kill you.

I'm the captain.

I give the orders!

And anyone who disobeys
can walk the plank

and pray the mermaids take pity
on his soul!

Face me, villain? Uhh!
(Blade whooshes)

- Captain! - Whoa!
- Whoa.

What's this about, Bae?

I found this... on your desk.


it's my mother.

How'd you get it?!

- Bae...
- How?!

You're the pirate that killed her!

(Clank, clatter)

I didn't kill your mother.

We fell in love.

And we ran off together.
Your father lied to you.

He was too much of a coward
to tell you the truth.

He tore her heart out
and crushed it in front of me.

And I've spent every moment
since then wanting revenge.

She abandoned me?

Not a single day went past

when your mother didn't regret
leaving you, Baelfire.

We talked about going back for
you when you were old enough.

Perhaps fate brought us together

so that I can make
good on those plans.

We can live the life
that Milah wanted for us,

- as a family.
- No!

Stay back.

You used me!

You wanted to kill my father!

Yes. I did.

(Voice breaking)
You tore apart my family,

as sure as if you'd ripped
her heart out yourself.

Bae, don't.

Take me back to my real family,

the Darlings.

Uh, I can't.

It's not possible
to leave Neverland.

But you could stay here
under my protection.

I'd rather fend for myself
than be with you.

I want off this ship...


(Electricity humming and crackling)

What are you doing here?

You were willing to die to save us.

That makes you a hero.

And now we're gonna be heroes.

We're gonna open up a portal,
throw this thing into a void.

No. You don't know that it'll work.

We have to try.

Everybody, step aside.


It's empty.


(Wind whistling)

Eager to go, I see.

Just drop me off anywhere.

You really think you can
survive on your own?

I've never been given the choice.

Well, you have one now.

Anywhere will do.

I get you're angry.

But it doesn't have
to end like this.

This ship can be your
home, your family.

Just say the word.

It's not too late to start over.

I can change, Bae... for you.

You say that.
I know you'll never change.

Because all you care
about is yourself.

Thank you...

for reminding me what I'm all about.

Killing your father.

You're not letting me go.

How would that help me?

You hated my father so much,

you didn't even realize
you were just like him!


You have the boy.

He will be pleased?



(Rumbling, people screaming)

(Electricity crackling,
rumbling continues)

I can't contain this much longer.


(Electricity crackles)



I love you, Henry.

I only wish I was strong enough
to stop all this.

(Whispers) I'm just not.

(Crackling and whooshing)

You may not be strong enough.

But maybe we are.


(Whooshing and booming)


(Rumbling stops, clatter)




We're alive.




We did it.

Yes, we did.

Gotta hand it to Henry.

He's right about a lot of things.

Yes, he is.

Isn't that right, kid?




Mary Margaret:
Emma, what is it?

They took him.

Relax, kid. We're
not gonna hurt you.

Just everyone I love. You tried
to blow up Storybrooke.

True, but that was never the point.

It wasn't?

We came here to
destroy magic, Henry,

but then we found
something more important...

something that changed everything.


Mary Margaret: Emma, you don't
even know where you're going!

Doesn't matter.
I have to find him.

I'll track them down
in hell if I have to.

The last bean.

They've opened a portal.

(Whooshing) (Emma) Henry!

David: Henry!


No! No! No!

We have to follow them!
There has to be a way.

Not only do we not
know where they went,

- but Hook stole the last bean.
- I don't care!

- Without it, there's no way to follow.
- There has to be.

We can't let them just take Henry.

They've taken Henry?

Yeah. You're The Dark One.
Do something.

Gold, help us.

There's no way.

I spent a lifetime trying
to cross worlds to find my son.

There's no way in this world
without a portal.

He's gone forever?

I refuse to believe that.

What is that?


What the hell are you doing here?


Well, you're too late.

Am I?

I thought you didn't care
about anyone but yourself.

Maybe I just needed reminding
that I could.

Enough waiting around. Let's go.

Go? Where? I thought
we were saving the town.

We already did.

We need to get Henry.

Greg and Tamara took him
through a portal.

Well, I offer my
ship and my services

to help follow them.

Well, that's great, Hook,
but how will we track them?

Leave that to me.

I can get us where we need to go.

(Sighs) Then let's do it.

Belle, I-I-I have to go.

You have to stay here.

No. W-why? I-I wanna help.

The town is no longer safe.

- What?
- What?

Well, Greg and Tamara
weren't working alone.

Others will follow.

No. We can't leave people in danger.

After we've gone,
follow these instructions.

It's a cloaking spell.

It'll shield the town,

making it impossible
for anyone to find.

Well, then how will you find
your way back to me?

You're not coming
back, are you?

The prophecy.

The boy is my undoing.

But he's also my grandson.

I must save him.

I must do this to
honor Baelfire.

He's gone.

And I didn't even get
the chance to say good-bye.

I understand,
but I also know...

that the future isn't always
what it seems.

I will see you again.


Baelfire would be...
very proud of you.



Who is he?

Woman: I don't know.

Is he alive?

Barely. We have to get him help.


Help me get him up.

So... are you done
trying to kill me?

I believe so.


Then you can live.


Where is that?

Where did they take Henry?


Is it the boy?
The one he wants?

No, it's not.

It's your lucky day, boy.
You get to live.

Put him with the rest.


David: So who are we up against?

Who are Greg and Tamara?

They're merely pawns,

manipulated by forces far
greater than they can conceive.

They have no idea
who they're truly working for.

And who's that?

Someone we all should fear.

If that's not the boy
he's looking for,

you think we'll
be able to find him?

Of course we will.

May take time, but...

Peter Pan never fails.
