Once Upon a Time (2011–2018): Season 6, Episode 22 - The Final Battle: Part 2 - full transcript

Snow, Charming, Regina, Zelena and Hook are trapped in a crumbling Fairy Tale Land and desperately try to figure out a way to be reunited with Emma and Henry.

Previously on
"once upon a time"...

You have a visitor.

You have to stop
doing that

or your mother's not gonna let
you keep visiting me.


There's my boy.

Regina: If we don't stop
the black fairy,

all the realms will be destroyed
and everyone in them.

There was an accident.

Henry broke
into his doctor's office,

had a nasty fall
down the stairs.

I didn't fall.
She pushed me.

How could I push him
if I wasn't even touching him?

This is all my fault.
It has to stop.

And you know
what you have to do.

Go on. Burn it.

Show him that you've
truly embraced reality.





your father wouldn't
want you in tears.

Not on his behalf.

Tiger Lily.

What happened here?

Where is father?

I don't know.

But I do know
that it's clear

he fought valiantly
so you could escape.

I never should've left.

I should've fought
with him!

No. You were right
to follow his instructions.

Because you did,

the book is safe.

We need to take it
to your mother now.

She'll be waiting.

But what about father?

You'll be reunited one day.

I promise.
The fairies have foreseen it.

They have?

W-we're going to be okay?


the future is cloudy,

but you will be reunited.

After that...

You just need to learn
the lesson

imparted by this book.


never lose hope.

It -- it can't be.

Well, I'm afraid it is.
Your story book.

Or what's left of it.

No way.
My mom would never burn it.

Oh, but she did.

Whatever last bit of belief
she clung to went up in smoke,

just like the pages
of your precious book.

Not even you could destroy
her belief completely.

If that's so, then why is
she packing for Boston

at this very moment?

I'll stop you.

Oh, haven't you
already tried that?

Look where it got you.

It's not just me.

It's my family.

We won't let you win.

Oh, haven't I mentioned
the consequences

of Emma's lost belief?

Your family
isn't going to exist

long enough
to save themselves,

let alone your mother.


[ gasps ]

[ Both grunting ]

Hurry, mate!

Yeah, I know!




[ Grunting ]


[ Tinkling ]



Something's wrong.

I'll get us there.

I don't know.

Then let's go
find him.

[ Snaps fingers ]

Snow: David!


[ Man groaning ]


-[ Groaning ]

Hello there, mummy.


Oh, there was a --
there was a wedding.

And yeah, that is still going to
take some getting used to.

[ Groans ]

Uh, what happened?

Well, first, I fell,

and then --
and then it fell,

but we managed to get this.


Where's David?

You mean he's not here?


-He was on that?

We should start searching.

This beanstalk
goes on for miles.
No, you're getting back
to the castle.

Take the bean.
Get to Emma and Henry.

Don't worry about David.
I'll find him.

The realms
are disappearing.

We don't have much time.

Get to Emma.

It's important.

Make her believe again.

So it's true.

You're really leaving

It's what's best
for both of us, kid.

Don't you get it?

This is
what she wants.

The black fairy
cast the curse

so all this
would get you to leave.

This is why I have to go,

because you still believe
this nonsense is true.

-It is.
-Henry, stop.

Don't get me wrong.
I am so happy you found me.

And I'm so happy
i got to know my son.

But it's so clear now.

Coming to storybrooke wasn't
good for either of us.

You're wrong.

Look where I ended up.

Look at you.
Look at your arm.

It sent us
on a dangerous path.

I got to get back to Boston
and back to my life.

And so do you.

She did it.

You really don't believe?

[ Voice breaking ]
There's nothing to believe.

[ Sighs ]

Goodbye, kid.


I love you.



[ door creaks ]

[ Keys jingle ]



Henry: You might not think
this story's true.

But I know that it is.

And it can still
have a happy ending.

[ Phone ringing ]

[ Phone beeps ]


Man: Hey, swan,
i got your message.

-You back?
-Yeah, I'm back.

Ready to go to work?

'Cause I got a guy
who jumped bail --

a perfect mark for
your "first date" trick.

What do you say?

Sounds good.

[ Phone beeps ]

[ Slams phone ]



[ lightning cracks ]

And you left snow

But I have the bean.
And that's the priority --

getting back home
to Emma, to Henry.

She'll find David.
She always does.

Well, we have a problem.

What the devil
happened to it?

Her lack of belief.

It's sapping the magic
from everything here.

Well, can't you fix it?
Make it work?

Well, I can't. I'm --
i don't...Have enough power.

Of course you do, sis.

With a little help
from, well, yourself.

The evil queen.

Your evil half is here?

Well, she's not evil.
Not completely.

And yes, she's here.

And you trust here?

Well, of course I do.
She's me.

And remember,
Henry's her son, too.



[ Earth rumbling ]

[ Wind howling ]


No, no, no!

No, no!

Please, no!
Please, no!

[ Whimpers ]

Please, no!


You found me.

Did you ever doubt
i would?

Truthfully, the beanstalk
that fell on me gave me pause.

[ Laughs softly ]

[ Earth rumbling ]

we're gonna be fine.

Darkness never wins.

It just fools you
into thinking it does.

I love you, charming.

I love you, snow.

Let's go.

[ Door bells jingle ]

Mr. gold?

And where do you think
you're going to, young man?

That room is off limits
to customers.

I'm not a customer.

I'm your grandson.

[ Scoffing ] Is that so?


You must've hit your head
pretty badly.

Now, if you don't mind,
i got work to do, so...Please.

[ Potion simmering ]

You're awake.

I know what magic
looks like.

What are you up to,


clever under any circumstances,
aren't you, my boy?

Why have you been

believe it or not,

I didn't entirely trust my
mother when she cast the curse.

And, as usual,
i was right not to.

Our agreement wasn't
to put me

in this pathetic circumstance
here without belle.

She betrayed me.


What are you planning?

To find out
her true intentions.

She told me belle
was off to see the world,

but I know better.

She'd keep her here
for leverage, just in case.

Well, belle's
gonna have to wait.

Everyone back in the
enchanted forest is in danger

because the black fairy made
Emma stop believing.

You got to help me
save my family.

Our family.

And then we can find

I'm sorry, Henry,
you're on your own.

All I care about right now
is belle.


But if you're not
gonna help,

at least let me take something
that can help me.

And what exactly
did you have in mind?


There's two things.


so, uh, I'm not sure
if any of you on the other side

are listening,
but if you are, I'm sorry.

I tried my best to keep Emma
from losing belief,

but it wasn't good enough.


[ sniffs ]

But that doesn't mean I'm going
down without a fight.


if Emma's not around
to take on the black fairy,

then I will.

He's going alone.

But how could he win
against her if Emma couldn't?

He's a tough boy.

Get that bean
working now.

I'm sorry, Regina,

but even with our magic

it will still take time.

[ Lighting crashes ]

We don't have time.

It's on the outskirts of
the forest and moving fast.

The magic's almost here.


I'm afraid that's a bit
of an understatement.

It is here.

Let's round everyone up,
get them to safety.

[ Lightning crashing ]

What the hell
are you doing?

I'm going to hold it off
as long as I can.

You'll die!

It'll give you a chance
to get to the courtyard.

Go to the center
of the castle.

You can survive long enough
there to get the bean to work.

You just need time.

Let me give that to you.



He's my son, too.

He needs
at least one of us.


to the center, quickly!

Close together!


[ rumbling ]


[ baby crying ]


not so fast.

You came back.

Yeah. I did, kid.

Does that mean you --
you remember?

I...Found the book
you left.

I was about to take
another job and...

And then I thought about
this woman you wrote about

who was a hero
with a family

and a savior who never
ran from a battle and...


Well, I'm not sure that it's me,
Henry, but, um...

But it's who I want to be.

So I don't remember all
the crazy stuff you told me,


I believe it.

[ Lightning crackling ]

[ Crackling stops ]

[ Baby fusses ]

What happened?

Emma. She's back!

I don't want to leave!
I don't want to leave!


[ Door locks ]


How do you know my name?

I can explain
if you give me a chance.

Leave me alone, okay?
I'm safe here.

Belle, I know this is
difficult to understand...


You're not like this.

The black fairy
did this to you.

Changed you.

I promise you,

the woman who did this,

I am gonna make her pay.

[ Door bells jingling ]

Gideon: Madame mayor,
what's wrong?

Are you here
to pick up your watch?

No, I'm not here
for my watch.

I'm here because
Emma swan is back.

Uh, sorry.
I don't understand.

Are you all right?

Do you need something?

Indeed I do.

There's a fairy wand
in this shop.

My fairy wand.

And I need it back now.

A fairy wand?

Perhaps I should call
my father.

He'll know what to do.

Drop it! Now.

The last thing I need
is gold getting involved.

Why did I do that?

I didn't want to do that.

Despite what your father thinks,
i still have your heart.

You have to do
whatever I say.

So start looking
for that wand now.

What is that?

Regina: The runes
that Henry scribbled.

It's an ancient language
long lost to time.

I need the wand
to translate it.

It holds the key
to winning the final battle.


This what you were
looking for?


Yes, it is.

It's been centuries
since I felt its power.

[ Inhales deeply ]

[ Exhales sharply ]


Time to go to work, Gideon.


[ door bells jingling ]


[ Door bells jingling ]

Hello, Mr. gold.

I was just here
to pick up my watch.

No, you weren't...


Of course.

You know, I only
separated you from belle

for your own good.

She's my wife.

And a terrible one.

She would convince you to go
against your dark instincts.

I couldn't let that happen.

But once the final battle
is won,

the curse on belle and Gideon
will be lifted,

and I will have
unchecked powers.

Not even the laws
of magic will apply.

I can make them love you

without you having to give up
being the dark one.

Don't you realize?

You can
finally have it all.


I can't.

I won't trust you.

All you care about's

I care about you!
Always have!

And I worked tirelessly
to reunite us!

And now we can be
a family again.

And not just
with belle and Gideon.

What do you mean by that?

With my new powers,
i can bring back the dead.

Like baelfire.

Your first son
that you lost.

All your desires
can be had.

Your magic will really
allow us to have it all?

[ Laughs softly ]

Without a doubt.

Well, there's just
one problem.

All magic comes
with a price.


[ gasps ]

And I'm no longer
willing to pay it.

You will not be winning
any battle.

And you are gonna suffer

for what you did
to belle and Gideon.

[ Chokes ] You may think
that you can stop me,

but that doesn't mean
the final battle is over.

After all, I'm not the one
who's going to kill the savior.

That's what I learned
from the runes.

Darkness can't
snuff out the light.

It's not strong enough.

Only light
can snuff out light.


You have his heart.


And I commanded him
to kill the savior.

Not even my death
can stop that.

In fact, I suspect
it would ensure it.


There's only one way
to find out.

[ Gagging ]

[ Wind howling ]

[ Wand clatters ]

[ Pulse rippling ]


I remember.


just in time, savior.

Henry. Go!

[ Door opens, bells jingle ]


[ Door closes, bells jingle ]


Yeah. I'm awake.

The curse is broken.

When I killed her.

You killed your mother?

W-where's Gideon?

I don't know.

Still under her control.

But I think
i know who to ask.


C-can you stop him?

I don't intend to stop him.

[ Cell phone beeps ]

I intend to save him.


You don't
want to do this.

You can't win.

But I also can't give up.

[ Thunk ]

[ Sword clatters ]

Let's go. Go!

[ Pulse crashes ]

[ Pulse crashes ]

-You did it.

That won't hold very long.
[ Pulse crashes ]

It's okay.
The black fairy's got his heart.

Gold's gonna get it.
Everything's gonna be fine.

I appreciate your optimism, kid,
but we got to go.


you think
his heart's down here?

I know my mother.

This is where
she'd hide it.

If I find it --

Belle, you all right?

[ Groaning ] My ankle.
I think it's twisted.

-Well, let me fix it.
-No, no! Just go ahead.

We're racing against the clock.
I'll only slow you down.

Go. Save Emma!
Save our son!


can you see him?

We lost him.
But he won't be far behind.

I'm so sorry
that I ever doubted you.

I know. It's okay.
It was the curse.

I'm just happy
it's broken.

Snow: We are, too.

Oh, dad.

Some honeymoon, huh?

Oh, we'll get there.
We'll get there.



[ lid creaks ]

Henry: She left him
with one last command.

Kill you no matter what.

Well, then
we'll kill him.

No. It's a trap.

If Gideon kills Emma,
then light will be destroyed.

And if Emma kills him,
then she'll darken herself

and light will be
destroyed anyway.

You don't have to kill him.

Just hold him off
until gold gets his heart.

Well, there's no
holding him off.

But she is right.

It's a trap,
and it's perfect.

No matter what,
darkness wins.

I'm not telling you to give up.
You can't.

Emma, you of all people
should know,

there's always a third way.

[ Sighs ]

Remember when you first
came to storybrooke?

We hated each other.

-No, it's true.

I was Henry's mother,
but you said you were.

And we fought.

And oh, boy,
did we ever fight.

But you found a third way.

We were both his mother.

Earlier today,
i saw my evil half...

...be selfless.

She saved us all.
I never saw that coming.

Just like however you're
going to get out of this,

you haven't seen yet.

But you will.

Sounds like you're talking
about hope.

Something you taught me
all those years ago

when...You didn't
give up on me.

What should I do?

You'll know
when the time comes.

[ Whoosh ]

I'm afraid that time
has indeed come.

-Son of a bitch!
-Dad, stop!

I got this.

Let her go.


[ heartbeat thumping ]

There's your heart,

Now let's save you.
Let's stop you.

But why would you stop him?
[ Chuckles ]

Now, remember
what mother said.

"With the death of the savior,
you can have it all."

You're nothing but a devil
on my shoulder.

Doesn't mean to say
I'm wrong, dearie.

This is our last chance
to finally get everything.

Love and power.

All you have to do now
is put the heart down

and let our boy
finish his mission.


I won't betray my family.

I will do the right thing.

I was destined
to become the savior.

[ Chuckles ] And now you're
fated to change magic!

In this new world,
we will make the rules.

Belle wants to see
the world.

Well, go on.
Spend 100 years seeing it,

then 100 years wrecking it.


It won't...Be...Real.

Gideon, stop.

Do not kill Emma swan.

[ Heart thumping ]

[ Thumping stops ]

[ Chuckles ]

Did you really think it was
gonna be that easy?

This is the black fairy's spell
we're talking about here!

You may want
to do the right thing,

but as we all know, we can't
always get what we want.

[ Chuckling ] Now, can we?


no one's going to save you.

[ Grunts ]

No one needs to save me!
I'm the savior!


I'm fighting
for the people I love.


ultimately, I am a hero.

I am hope.
I am light!

And light cannot destroy

It can only create
more light.

I will not kill

I will do
what all saviors must!

I will give hope...

[ Groans ]

[ Panting ]

[ Gasps ]

...no matter what the cost.



I'm sorry, Emma.

I was hoping
you'd save us both.


[ Gasps ]

[ Winds howling, sky crackling ]

I failed you, belle.

I failed our family.

I made the right choice.

It just didn't work out.



I love you.

[ Gasps ]

I love you, too.

I love you, too!

[ Baby cooing ]


[ exhales sharply ]

Is that...

It's Gideon.

A fresh start.

A happy ending.


A happy beginning.





I think
this belongs to you.


"when good and evil both did the
right thing, faith was restored.

The final battle was won."


[ laughs softly ]

That's it.

That's all?
No "the end"?


'Course not.
Because this isn't the end.

I mean, maybe of this book,
but...It isn't the end, end.

So...What now?

Now we get to see what's next.

Believing in even the
possibility of a happy ending

is a powerful thing, but living
with that kind of belief...

That's the most powerful thing
of all.

That's hope.

So you asked, "what now?"

Now we get to keep
going on.

We get to keep doing
what we love...

With the people we love.

An ending isn't happiness.

Being together is.

Are you Henry mills?


Yeah. Who are you?

My name's Lucy.
I'm your daughter.

I don't have a daughter.

Yeah, you do.

Now come on.
Your family needs you.
