Previously on
"Once Upon a Time"...

How do we stop Zelena?

The Good Witch of the South.


The next time your lips
touch Emma Swan's,

all of her magic will be taken.

[Mary Margaret] It's the baby.

It's coming.


- [David] Hey! Over here!
- [Mary] I'm okay.


- [Mary screams]
- All right, breathe.

[woman over P.A.]
Paging pharmacology.


[wheel squeaking]


[man] Let's get them in 2.
Let's go. Move.


- Aah!
- How you feeling?

- [doctor] Nurse.
- [nurse] Yes, doctor?

A little help here.


[Zelena] There.
That will do.

You said it yourself.

Spinning clears your mind.

Or should I say...
Your brain.

[heart beating]

There's just one more ingredient
to collect.


[breathing heavily]


Once Upon A Time: "Kansas"
Season 3 Episode 20

Original air date May 04, 2014

[flame whoosing]

- [Regina laughs]
- Your turn, dearie.



Really? It's not that difficult.


[monkey chattering]


I can't concentrate
with all that screeching.

It's probably me.

He was never much of a fan.

Who are you?

the Good Witch of the South.

You can relax.

I'm not here to fight you.

I'm here to thank you...

for showing Oz the true nature
of the wizard

and for standing up to him.

And you're glad that I turned
him into a monkey?

A little time as your pet
will do him good.

He was a trickster,

offering people hope
he could never deliver.

[monkey chatters]

You're quite powerful, Zelena.

I know.

But you're wasting it
on these foolish pursuits.

What do you know
about what I want?

You want to
change your destiny,

but you can't go back in time.

No one can.

Why don't you come with me?

Why on earth would I do that?

Because I think I can
offer you something

that you're really looking for.

There are some people
that I want you to meet.


Come meet your real sisters.

There. Dig.


You think I'll fail.

I think destiny is destiny.


You're wrong.

I can change it.

And once I fix the past,
my mother will keep me,

Regina will never have been born,

and I'll get everything she ever had.

With the right ingredients,
I can do anything.

Whether it works or not
is irrelevant, dearie.

Because no matter what you
change of your past...

[sword clangs]
one thing shall remain the same...

Who you are.

[Zekena chuckles]

And that is a fate you can never escape.

We shall see.

- It's gonna be okay.
- [voice breaking] Is it?

Our baby's going to be fine.

It's never going to leave your arms.

I don't care who's out there.

Oh, that's what
we thought last time.

- I know. This time...
- Ohh.

We have someone
else on our side.


You really think
this protection spell

will be enough
to hold her off?

It depends if your brand
of magic is stronger than hers.

If it is, no one wielding dark magic

will be able to get in here.

That doesn't sound like
a vote of confidence.

It isn't.
But we're out of options.

[Hook] Swan.

I heard the little
royal was on his way.

I don't think it's a good idea
for you to be here right now.

- I want to help.
- If you really wanted to help,

you would have told me
when Zelena cursed your lips.

I had no choice.

She threatened
you and your family.

I... was trying to help.

Telling me what was going on
would have been help.

And a death sentence for your boy.

Henry's safety
is my concern, not yours,

which is why I'm taking
this fight to Zelena.

[Hook sighs]

This ends today.

Emma, wait.

You don't have to do this alone.

Yeah, I do. You need to stay
with Mary Margaret.

Yeah, I know, but you need help.

Take Hook.

Are you insane?

He's going with you.
You're going with her.

Mm. I thought
you didn't trust me, mate.

[sighs] Zelena backed
you into a corner.

You did the best you could.

See? Even
your father gets it.

Yeah, because he knows about
keeping secrets from loved ones.

- Hey.
- I'm sorry.

- I'm doing this alone.
- No, you're not.

This isn't about you.
It's about all of us.

What is he gonna do?

I have magic. He's got one hand.

You know I'm good in a fight.

At the very least, he can draw fire.

What, now I'm cannon fodder?

Fine. He can come.

Fair enough.

- Shall we?
- Hang on. Give me a sec.

Hey, kid.

Hey, mom. Is the baby here?

Not yet, but it will be soon.

I'm sorry, but I have to go.

I have to take care
of this witch,

but it's gonna be all right,

and I'll be back
before you know it.

I know. I'm not worried.


Defeating bad
guys is what you do.


I'll keep him safe.

Thank you.

You ready, Swan?

Yeah. Let's end this.

[Archie] Are you keeping up
on current events?

No, I... I'm looking
at the classifieds.

Oh? A little young for a job,
aren't you?

I'm actually looking
at apartments.

Mary Margaret's place
will be crowded after the baby,

and I'll be back and forth
from Regina's.

But Emma, she...
she can't sleep in her car.

No, not comfortably.

It's really good
to see you, Henry.

I missed you.

Me too.

Maybe a place by
the water with a view.

You know, have you spoken
to Emma about this,

about staying in Storybrooke?

Well, what's to talk about?

We're... home.

I never should have brought
Henry back to Storybrooke.

You did what
you thought was right.

I did what
you manipulated me into.

Your parents needed you, Swan.
The town needed you.

Henry also needed me.

We were happy in New York.

Once I'm done melting this witch,

I'd like us to be happy again.

You know, as content as you were
in that city, it wasn't real.

It was real for me, for him.

Everything that happened,

Minus all the things you'd forgotten.

Part of you is not the real you,

and, like it or not,
a big part of you and Henry

belongs in this town.

Yeah, the part of us
that's always in danger.

We're leaving.

What does the boy think?

He's a kid. He wants
chocolate milk in his cereal.

I'm his mother.
I know what's best for him.

What's best
for him... or for you?

Excuse me?

You've taken care of the boy
quite well here.

You can talk about danger
all you like, but it isn't that.

So, tell me, what is it?

Why are you
so scared of staying?

I think it's because you can see
a future here,

a happy one.

Let me guess... with you?

[Zelena] Aww.

You two are so adorable.

But instead of looking
for each other,

maybe you
should be focused on me.

Although, without magic,

that could prove
to be a challenge.

The next time you try to take
my power, why don't you try

enchanting the lips
of someone I'll actually kiss?

See, Emma,
you've got a decision to make.

You can keep your magic,
which makes you oh so sad,

or you can save the man that you
can't wait to run away from.



[water splashes]

Choose wisely.


[bubbling continues]

[Emma sighs]

Try all you like.

You can't free him.

[Zelena] What is this place?

[Glinda] The heart of Oz.

These are my sister witches
from the North and the East.

Each represents
a special part of magic...

love, wisdom, and courage.

Together, our abilities
are far more powerful

than they could
ever be on our own.

We can do things
that no one else can.

Like travel through time?

That's not why
we brought you here.

But you said
you wanted to help me.

If you can't
change my past, then...

I brought you here
to change your future.

This seat has been
empty for some time.

We'd like you to fill it.

What does the West represent?

The most elusive of elements...

Well, then, I'm the last person
that you should consider.

I mean, look at me.

I'm wicked.

But you don't have to be.

Innocence reclaimed can be just
as powerful as innocence born.

You simply have
to choose to be good.

Well, that's easy for you to say.

Good is part of your name.

aren't you going to tell her?

Tell me what?


I didn't want to say anything
unless I had to.

I wanted to let you shape
your own destiny.

What could you possibly know
about my destiny?

Glinda's the keeper
of the book of records.

It chronicles the past,
present, and future of Oz.

The book foretells
of a powerful sorceress

who will join our sisterhood
as a protector of Oz.

And you think that that's me?

The book says that
this sorceress from the West

will come to
this land by cyclone.

I was brought here by a cyclone.

That's right.

We've been looking for you
for a long time, Zelena.

You've always been
meant for more.

I know you don't think so,
but you can do this.

You just have to let go of your past.

Hook. Hook!

Hook, wake up! Killian!

Killian, come back to me.

Oh, God. Son of a bitch.



Hook. Come back to me.




What did you do?
What did you do?

[breathing heavily]


Sorry, sis. But I'm over you.


That was lovely, Zelena.

I'm impressed.

I knew you would
make the right choice.


What's that?

A very special pendant.

Each of the witches
in the sisterhood wears one.

Guard it with your life

because, in many ways,
it now is your life.

You were born
with great power, Zelena.

And now...
now this pendant will harness,

protect, and grow that power...
All of it.

Will it make me stronger?

Than you could
possibly imagine.

However, the price is,
without it, you are powerless.

But so long as you do
continue to wear it,

you will be able to accomplish
untold miracles.

Does this mean...

You are one of us.

Yes. Our sister.

Take a look.



Oh, thank you.

Don't thank me.
Thank yourself.

You did it all.
You let go of your envy.

You took control
of your destiny.



[breathing heavily]

[electricity crackles]

What the hell was that?

It doesn't matter.
This baby's coming.

Steady, men. Steady.

Aim true for Little John!


Oh, didn't you learn your lesson
the last time?

This is more powerful
than your true love.

I refuse to believe that.

- Belle, go.
- Listen to him, dear.

No. You've put him
through enough pain.

And I'm not nearly done!

[whoosh, gasps]

Your taste in women
really has gone downhill.


Leave her, dearie.

Henry, go with Dr. Hopper.

Find a closet and lock
yourselves inside.

You don't want to see this.
It won't be pretty.

[Archie] Come on, Henry.

No, it won't.

Take another step,
and I'll roast you.



All this... for me?

Yes, sister. The West.

Its future and potential
is as limitless as your own...

[thunder crashes]

What is that?

It sounds like thunder.

[wind rushing]

It's not thunder.

It's a cyclone.

There's something inside it.

[rushing continues]

[glass shattering]


- [woman coughs]
- Over there.


- [woman] I'm down here.
- Oh, someone's trapped.

Are you all right?

Uh... I think so.

I... I tried to run to the storm cellar,

but... I wasn't fast enough.

What world are you from?

W... W... world?

Y... You mean
this isn't Kansas?

I'm afraid not.

Welcome to Oz.
What's your name?


Dorothy Gale.

If you were strong enough to
survive such a powerful storm,

you must be
a very special girl, Dorothy.


We'll take you to our home.

Our sisters will be
very excited to meet you,

won't they, Zelena?


I'm sure they will.



[David] I'm here. Don't worry.

I'll protect you.
Just focus on the baby.

Just one more push, Mary Margaret.

Just one more push!

That's it. One more.

[baby crying]


It's a boy!

[crying continues]

[chuckling] It's a boy.

What a charming family.

It's a shame I have to break it up.


[baby cries]



No. No, no, no, n...


So pure and so innocent.

And now... mine.




It's so lovely
to have you with us.

[Witch of the East] Our home
is your home.

[Witch of the North] You should
have come sooner.


Thank you.

Y... You've all been so kind.

You've treated me like family.

- Oh.
- Aww.



[Glinda] Zelena.

There you are.
We were starting to worry.

Are you feeling all right?

Go away.

What's gotten into you?

What do you think?

Have you been
spying on Regina again?


I've been watching you fawn over
your latest protégé.

Dorothy... Are you jealous of her?

Why? You two
are so... alike.

Except she's spunkier, fresher-faced,

and clearly more innocent than me...

perfect candidate to take
the empty seat at the table.

No one is taking your seat, Zelena.


That's not what this says.

What are you doing
with the book of records?

You didn't tell me everything
about the prophecy.

"The sorceress from another land
will make Oz her home

until she fulfills her destiny

and unseats the greatest evil
the realm has ever seen."

Don't you see?

Dorothy is meant to take my seat,

which makes me the greatest evil.

Fate is a funny thing.

You don't know if that's what
the prophecy actually means.

Remember what I said?

Only you can
shape your destiny.

But if you believe you are evil,

then that is what you will become.

[humming "Hush, Little Baby"]

It's all right, little one.

We're almost home.


[humming continues]

[sighs] He's gone.

It happened again.

- Where are you going?
- To get my son back.

You're gonna get yourself killed.

- David, think about this.
- What's there to think about?

Don't let him get hurt.

What's going on here?

What happened?
Did you find Zelena?

I... I did, but
I couldn't stop her.

- She took your brother.
- Because I failed?

We're all still here,
So you haven't failed just yet.

Hook's right. Come on.

No, wait.

Zelena took my magic.

How the hell did that happen?!

Doesn't matter how.
It just happened.

So, we need to find another way
to stop her.

There is no other way.

That's not true.
You can do it.

I don't think I can survive

round three with my sister.

Glinda was pretty specific.

Only the purveyor
of the strongest light magic

can defeat her.

Zelena only beat you

because you were using
dark magic against her.

But... it's all I have.

No. It's not.

When you kissed Henry,
that was true love's kiss.

That's light magic.

See? You can do it.

Henry, I don't even have
my heart right now.

That doesn't matter.

You broke
the curse without it,

and I know you still love me.

I know there's good in you.

He's right.

I know you can
beat that witch.

But I don't...

You have to.

Once upon a time,
you were a villain, mom.

But you've changed.

You're a hero now.

And defeating bad guys
is what heroes do.

I believe in you.

Now you need to believe, too.

[Zelena] Hello, Dorothy.

[gasps and sighs] Zelena.

I... I didn't recognize you.

Are you okay?

I decided to stop hiding my true colors.

According to the prophecy,

you're the only one
that can defeat me.

Defeat you?

W... What are
you talking about?

I don't want to hurt you.


Because I'm going to make sure
you can't.


[water splashing]
Aah! Ohh!

What have you done?!


[gasping] What's
happening to me?!

I'm... I'm...


You are melting.
[Zelena's body dripping]

I'm sorry.
[Zelena's body dripping]

I was only trying
to put out the fire!


It was just water!


[dripping and creaking]

It was just water.

Glinda? Glinda!

Dorothy? What is it?

Z... Zelena.

S... She... She came up to me
with a ball of fire,

and I... I threw water at her,
and then... l... look!

- [Dorothy sighs]
- The prophecy has come to pass.

And you, Dorothy, you defeated her.

With water?

It was your destiny to stop her,

and destiny gave you the tool.

I'm sorry.

Don't be.

She didn't leave you a choice.

You're one of us now, Dorothy,

part of the Sisterhood of Witches.

I... I... I'm sure
Oz is wonderful, but...

I want to go home.

I understand.

Unfortunately, I don't have
the power to cross realms.

Only the Wizard has done that.

Perhaps he can help you.

I... I thought Zelena
turned him into a monkey.

Now gone, her magic will be undone.

He will be back
to his human form.

Will you take to him?

Just follow me.

- Where?
- Why...

Down the yellow brick road,
of course.

[Zelena] There's nothing more
innocent than a newborn babe.

And you, my sweet,
are the most innocent of all...

the product of the truest love.

See, once I change the past,

you and I shall meet
under different circumstances.

And, Rumple,
you will choose me.

And I will be enough.

[Mr. Gold] No, you won't.

And no matter
where you go in time,

I will find a way to kill you.


Don't worry, dearie.

Once all this is over,
you won't remember a thing.

[David] It isn't over yet.

And who's gonna stop me?

Certainly not the Savior.

Go. Get him.

We got your back.

And I've got your heart.

[Regina] Zelena, stop now.

We're not gonna
let you succeed.

[chuckles] Rid me
of those pests.

Please no more water.

Get the dagger. Then the dark
one will be on your side.

It's easier said than done.

Do as I say,
or I will destroy you both.

I have no choice!

Come for another beating, sis?

No. I came for some jewelry.

Beautiful one. If you will?

[monkey screeching]


Remember, these creatures
are our friends!

Don't worry.
I'll use a gentle touch.

[Mr. Gold] Unfortunately,
that's not an option for me.


Only light magic can harm me.

And you're
as dark as they come.

It was your destiny to be this way.

And will also be your undoing!

Don't tell me what I can be!


I tried to be good once,
but it wasn't in the cards.

This is who I am,
and it's who you are!


You're wrong, sis.

What are you doing?





I make my own destiny.

[monkey screeches]

[Hood] Little John,
you're back!

[baby crying]

David, the baby.
Is he okay?


He can handle anything.

Just like his big sister.

[Regina] You failed.

[chuckling] You're
not going anywhere.

I beg to differ.

[whoosh, gasps]

I'm gonna make you pay for
everything you've done to me.

What are you waiting for?
Just do it!

With pleasure.



This ends now.

After everything
this witch has done...

you're gonna protect her?

Good magic stopped her.

And good magic
doesn't exact vengeance.

She killed my son!

How many lives have we taken
trying to get what we want?

You can't be serious.

I am.

Heroes don't kill.

So now you're a hero?

Today, I am.

Go on.

Ask for him.


Your excellency?


[wizard] I've been
expecting you.

You have?

I see all.

I am Oz, The Great And Terrible.

My name is Dorothy Gale.

Glinda said you might be able
to help me get home...

to Kansas.

I know who you are.

You freed me
from the Wicked Witch's magic.

Sending you home is the least
I can do to reward you.

How do I get back?

Look down.

Click your heels
together three times

and think of
where you want to be,

and the slippers
shall take you there.

Thank you so much.

Safe travels, Dorothy.

May you never find yourself
far from home again.


Thank you for your help.

You can show
your true self now.

With pleasure.

Hello... sister.


I don't understand.
Dorothy said...

I was destroyed
by water. [Chuckles]

Foolish child.

So gullible.

But why?

Because now that she's gone,

no one can stop me
from changing my past.

Then I will find someone else
to fulfill the prophecy.

As long as I am in Oz,

I will not stop searching until
I find someone to stop you.

I suppose that means
that you need to leave Oz.

Maybe you'll find the Enchanted
Forest more to your liking.

Zelena, please, it's not too late.

You can change.

Goodbye, Glinda!


Why, Regina?

Why not just kill me
and put me out of my misery?

Because I know
why you did what you did.

We're much alike.

Our mother ruined you, too.

I know what it's like to not
have the life you wanted...

the life you feel you deserve.

Oh, boo-hoo.

You had to be Queen.

You know nothing.

I saw it all.

You had everything.

Did I?

So, you missed the part where
I lost the love of my life.

Mother did all that for you
to achieve greatness.

Not long ago,
I was a lot like you.

I wanted to kill someone
who wronged me, and I failed.

Had I killed Snow White,
I wouldn't be in this world.

I wouldn't be with these people, and...

I wouldn't have my son, Henry.

So, no, Zelena,
I won't kill you.

Instead, I'm gonna
give you what I got.

I'm gonna give you
a second chance.

What if I don't want it?

Well, that would be
a mistake, dear.

Take it.

Use it.

Evil isn't born. It's made.

And so is good.

If I were you...

I'd consider creating
a new destiny.

Because if you don't,

I'll be right there to take
your heart and crush it.

Now, if you'll excuse me...

I should put this
somewhere safe.

[breathes heavily]

[chuckles softly]

[door bells jingle]

I knew you'd be back.

Your unwavering faith...
constantly astounds me.


And after everything I did.

It wasn't you.
It was... Zelena.

It wasn't always Zelena.

I will never comprehend

why you continue
to stand by my side.

I love you.

Always have.


[clears throat]

How did you get that?

Regina gave it to me to...
to make amends...

and also because she knew
I wouldn't abuse its power.

I want you to have it.


Because I believe in you.

It's yours. You're...
You're a free man.

Just promise me one thing...

Promise me
you won't go after Zelena.

You're... I know
you're better than that.

Oh, Belle.

What you're giving me

is more than I can ever give you.

But I will try.

This... This is trust.

It means you trust me
with all your heart.

I do.

And I shall
trust you with mine.

Take it.

I am now and
for all the future yours.


W... What are you saying?

Will you marry me?


[laughs] Yes.




Never thought
I'd see one of those.

It's called a baby.

No, Swan.

A smile.

We won.

In all the chaos, I never got
a chance to say thank you.

You really think
I'd let you drown?

Given our history,

can you blame me
for being uncertain?

Has your power returned
now that Zelena's been defeated?


I'm sorry, love.

It's okay.

I won't need it in New York.

Hey, kid.

You want to meet
your new uncle?


I didn't expect you back so soon.

I don't imagine you expected me
at all, dearie.


What are you doing here?

What do you think?

You can't kill me, Rumple.

I saw Regina take your dagger.

She gave it to Belle.

And she wants me dead.

No, of course not.

Well, then, you'll have to do
what she wishes.

If she has the dagger,
you have no choice.


If she has the dagger.

But she doesn't.

She only thinks she does.

You see, um...

my father taught me something...

the only useful thing he passed on...

a bit of sleight of hand called
"follow the lady."

Belle has a fake.

This, however, is quite real.



I'm powerless now.

R... Regina's
got my pendant.

My magic's gone.

I can't hurt anyone!

I can't. [Gasping]


Because I promised my son
his death would be avenged.

And Rumplestiltskin
never breaks a deal.




[cell door clangs]


[wind gusting]

[gusting turns louder]
