Once Upon a Time (2011–2018): Season 7, Episode 13 - "Once Upon a Time" Knightfall - full transcript

Previously on
"Once Upon a Time"

Whoever killed our doctor
tried to kill our baker, too.

Someone's killing witches.

So, you're just gonna
abandon this baby here?

The only way
I can escape this prison

is by leaving someone in my
bloodline to take my place.

Look familiar? It's part of
the Curse of the Poisoned Heart.

It appears when you're touched

by the one you can't be with.

Tonight is the night you're
finally gonna give my mom

true love's kiss.

"If true love's kiss
should ever break the curse,

Henry Mills would surely die."



That painting is gorgeous, Alice.

The calm before the storm.

I don't think I like it.

How is that possible?

It might be your best one yet.

I mean, it's beautiful.

It's just...

it makes me want to see
the real ocean.

I'm done painting for a while.


I'm sorry you're trapped
in here, Starfish.

I know it's not fair.

But you know what?

I might have something
that'll make you smile.

I was saving it for your birthday,

but today is better.


Is it sand?

Well, I figured if I couldn't
take you to the sea,

then I'd bring a piece
of the sea to you.

Thank you, Papa.

I love you.

I love you, too.

Papa! What's wrong?

What's happening to you?!


I am.




Don't worry.

It was just a bad dream.

I saw the witch again.

She's coming for me.

It was just a nightmare.

It's not! It's real!
You have to believe me.

You do see the world
in a special way, Alice.

If you say the dream means
something, then I believe you.

What are you doing?

Making sure
the dream doesn't come true.

I'm getting you out of
this tower, once and for all.

But how?
You've tried everything.

Almost everything.

The truth is...

there is
one more thing I can try.

It's a dark path that
I always feared to take, but...

I don't have any other choice.

Keep this close by.

To remember me.

I'm scared, Papa.

What if something happens to you?

What, happens to me?
Come on.

I'll be fine.

And I swear...

I will return as soon as I can.


Then take this
to remember me.


My little rook.

You are
the bravest girl I know.

Look, soon all of this will be over,

and all the chess pieces
will be together again.


Once Upon a Time S07E13


Morning, Detective!

I'm glad you're here.

I could really use
a good match right now.

Look, I'm working.
I don't have time to play games.

We can all make time for games.

They can help us out
on our bad days.

And I have a feeling
it's gonna be one of those.

What are you talking about?

Well, just a feeling...

something awful's gonna happen.

My head feels a bit off,

but it's nothing
a good game won't clear up!

I'm sure that it would, but

I have to focus on
my case right now.

People are in danger.
It's important.

- And I'm not?
- I'm not saying that. I'm not.

I'm just...

Right now,
I really need you to go home.



Yeah, of course.


Hey, Tilly.

What's the matter with her?

I'm not sure.

It's just...

Tilly being Tilly.

So, what's the word
on our Blind Baker?

Enjoying the finest medical
care in Hyperion Heights.

I posted a patrol
outside her room.

My suspicion is, this killer
goes for easy prey, so

I've just made things
a little bit more difficult.

With a bit of luck,
it'll help flush them out.

So, everyone in that cult
is in danger,

but we don't have
a bloody clue who they are.

Well, we don't.
But Eloise Gardener does.

She may have decided to vanish
in the wake of Victoria's death.

But that doesn't mean to say
we won't find her.

We will.

She's the key that's
gonna open all the locks.

Then, by all means, let's open them.

I think it's time
we all had a little talk.



Hey. How's it going?

What are you doing out here?

Finishing up
a really long night shift.

Given the company's
called Swyft,

you'd think it'd go fast, but... nope.

What are you doing out here?

'Cause you are definitely
not a morning person.

I, uh, actually had a meeting...

with one of my suppliers.

At 6:00 a.m.?

In that?

Okay, fine.
There wasn't a meeting.

Now stop giving me that look.

I was catching up
with an old boyfriend,


At least one of us
had a good night.


Henry, if something's wrong,
you can tell me.

I went to Jacinda's last night.


I'm sorry.
I just didn't realize

that you two were back on.

Well, not anymore.

'Cause all of a sudden,
Lucy broke it up.

And then... And then
she got super weird.

It was, like, suddenly,

I wasn't good enough
for her mom or something.



kids can be complicated, huh?


why don't you come inside?

And I'll fix you some eggs
and a shoulder to cry on.

I could probably use both.


You have a chance to save
some lives here, all right?

All we need is a list

of the members of the cult,

and then we can get to them
before the killer does.

We're not a cult.

We're a group of women
with shared ideals.

Why do people like you

always have to put
a label on that?

Like cult or coven or...
I don't know...


Is that label so far astray?

Where were you the night
of Victoria Belfrey's death?

I'm sorry.
Am I a suspect now?

And since when was this
about me, Detective Weaver?

I came here

to help you find a killer.

Of course you did.

I apologize for my partner.

I don't want an apology.

I want him gone.

Hm. You and I always have

such nice conversations,
Detective Rogers.

So, if I can't talk to you
alone, I don't talk at all.


You do not want
to go in there yourself.

That woman's life's work
is manipulation.

Yeah, she manipulates
lonely, lost girls.

And I'm none of those things.

I'll be fine. It's not like
she's actually a witch.

Yeah, well, whatever she is,
I assure you,

she's not going to give up
her answers easily.

'Cause she won't talk to you?

I spent years looking for her.

Yeah, she turned out
different than I expected,

but I know her.

She likes to be in control.

Yeah, you got that part right.

Yeah, so I'll let her
think she's in control.

Then I'll rope her in,
break open the case.

Hey, hey, hey.

I'm trying to help you here.

I want to solve this case
just as badly as you do.

So, go in there, get your answers,

but whatever happens...

do not let that woman
inside your head.


Come out where I can see you.

Ooh, it's Captain Hook!

Oh, what a lovely treat!

Oh, come closer.

You know, it's been so long
since I talked to anyone

except rats and leeches.

Oh, I didn't come
for the conversation.

Of course you didn't, dearie!

And so,
what brings Captain Hook home?

Finally ready
to seize his revenge?

Finally ready to kill me?

Or try?

I'm not that man anymore.

I finally learned
what it meant to live.

I'm willing to set aside
my revenge to ask...


To ask you for your help.


I thought I smelled desperation.

My speciality.

So, tell me,
what's the problem, eh?

Is it a plague?
A woman? A curse?

A daughter.

A witch has locked her in a tower,

and I... I need magic
to set her free.

Oh, well, that's doubly tragic.

For you have come
to the wrong place.

No magic here.

I know this place
drains your power.


Drains me.

But if you help me...

If you help me free
my daughter from her prison...

I'll finally free you from yours.

Uh, a d... deal?

- Yes, a deal.
- Indeed! Oh!

Oh, I remember!

I used to love those!

There is something.

A magic weapon with the power
to shatter any prison.

But it's terribly difficult to obtain.

Terribly, terribly, terribly difficult.

Just tell me where it is.

It's not a question of where, dearie...

but who.

This magic is in the hands
of another famous captain.

And you and I both know...

pirates don't give up
what's theirs without a fight.


All right. You win.

Detective Weaver's gone out
for a coffee.

It's just us now.

Oh, I doubt he went anywhere.

But as long as I can look
at your face and not his,

I'm a happy girl.

Glad to hear that.

Have you ever thought
about taking a razor

to that face of yours, Detective?

I bet you look nice clean-shaven.

Tell me,

why did you come in today?

Because I want
the same thing that you do.

I want to prevent women
like me from being killed.

Well, tell me who they are,
and I'll protect them.

And you really think
you're capable of that?

It's not that easy.

First you have to know
who you really are.

And right now, you have no idea.

And you think you do?

I think the answer's
closer than you ever imagined.


A picture really is worth
a thousand words, isn't it?

I wonder what this one means,
deep down.

It's just a doodle. It's an old habit.

Maybe older than you know.

There are so many patterns
around you you can't see yet.

Patterns that govern your actions.

And mine.

And the killer's.

What kind of patterns?

If you want to learn
the truth about the killer,

first, you need to learn
the truth about yourself.

All right, well, you seem
to know everything.

Why don't you just tell me?

Oh, I can't see
all the patterns. I can't.

But I do know
how to search for them.

And if you're ready to uncover yours,

you just need to do
one small thing for me.


Hey, Luce.

You hungry?

No, not really.

I made mac and cheese.

It's your favorite, with
those little farm animals.

They're so cute!

Mom, I'm not 6 anymore.

I'll just put it here.

Whatever you want.
I gotta finish my homework.


We haven't had a chance
to talk about last night.

What about last night?

You tell me.

First you wanted me
and Henry to be alone.

And then,
all of a sudden, you didn't.

It's just...

I've been really overwhelmed
after the hospital.

And Grandma dying.

I need you around, Mom.

And I don't want you
spending time with...

some guy.

"Some guy"?

You loved him.

And isn't he still
your favorite writer?

He used to be,

because I thought
his fairy tales were real.

But then bad things happen,
and you grow up.

So, maybe I don't believe
in fairy tales anymore.


And I don't want you
to see him again.


Where the hell are you going?

To give Eloise what she wants.

Well, how is that gonna help?

She asked
for your favorite painting?

The woman's out of her mind.
Worse... dangerous.

And very perceptive.

How does she even know
that I can paint?

Excellent question.

Perhaps her insight
should give you pause.

Well, it doesn't.

Right, if she knows something,
I'm willing to play along.

I thought you wanted
to find the killer.

If she has the answers,

then a painting is a small price to pay.

If you think that,
you don't understand the price.

Well, whatever the price is,

believe me, I'm willing to pay it.



Is it really you?

Mr. Smee.

It's been too long.

Hey, how's the Jolly Roger?

Shipshape and ready to set sail.

If you want her back,
just say the word.

Well, as much as I miss her,
I'm here for another treasure.

I've been told that the captain
who holds it is here.

A man named Ahab.

If it's Captain Ahab
you seek...

then your search is over.

Though your trouble, alas,
has just begun.

It's dangerous
to seek me out, old man.

Well, it's a dangerous thing
to call me "old man."


The legendary Captain Hook.

Well, it's nice to finally meet you.

And, you know, people,

they... they always tell me
that... that... that I...

am what you used to be, huh?

No, I'm what I used to be, mate.

Care to prove it, hmm?

Well, look, I'm not
interested in fighting.

I'm here looking
for a magical weapon.

Maui's Fishhook.

Now, I've been told that
you've taken possession of it.

I have.

But no washed-up former pirate

is gonna take it from me.

Careful with those threats, lad.

If you really know who I am,
then you know how this will end.

Anyway, I'm not interested in bloodshed.

I see you have a taste for the dice.

Now, how about we place
a wager, right?

Your magical fish barb
for, let's say, the, um...

the Jolly Roger herself?

Three dice.

One roll.

And may the best captain win.


Oh. That's quite a toss.

It's gonna be hard to beat that.

But Lady Luck has been
on my side before.


Well, come on, then.

Sorry, mate.

I hope you have better luck
with that white fish of yours.

You may be lucky,
but you're no pirate anymore.

I see right through you.

I'm sorry?

You see, that white whale
keeps me sharp.

But you...

I heard that you gave up
your crocodile.

Don't believe everything you hear.

People are talking...

saying that Hook went soft.

Lost your edge.

You want to know
what this is for?

I'm gonna use it
to kill the Dark One.

Believe me, I never lose sight
of what matters most.



- Hey.
- Hey.

I came as soon
as I got your message.

Uh, how you doing?

Well, my mother's been dead
for a week,

I'm completely alone,
so I'm doing great.

Oh, well, hey, if you...

if you don't want me here,
I can go.

No, no. Stay.


Turns out the only thing

harder than cleaning up
your dead mother's things

is doing it by yourself.

So, all this is hers, huh?



How many gold pens
does one person need?

She certainly didn't do
anything by half measures.

But now I don't know what
to keep or what to sell or...

what to do with my life.

Ah. So we're talking about more
than office supplies here.

Mother was the whole reason
I'm even in this town.

I spent my whole life hating her,

and then, at the end, it turns
out she loved me all along.

Wasn't that a good thing?

I don't know.
I just feel kind of lost.

I feel like you're the only person

I can talk to about this.

You understand me.

I'm trying to.

We both lost
people that we care about.

We're both wounded birds.


I mean, maybe...

maybe we can fix each other.


Mm. Uh, hey.

That... This... This is
not what you need right now.

Believe me, it is.

No, wait, wait.

Just stop. Stop.


Listen, I get it, okay?

When my family died, I...

I tried all sorts of stupid
things to make me feel better.

- Oh. So now I'm stupid?
- No.

No, you're not stupid.
You're grieving.

You're... You're trying
to grab onto something.

It's just...

I'm the wrong thing.

Well, then I'm screwed,
Because guess what.

- You're all I've got.
- Oh, come on. That's not true.

Look, when I lost my family,
I had nobody left.

Okay, I was completely alone.

But you're not.

You still have a sister.

And a niece.

Who hates me.

They both hate me.

They don't hate you.

If you're trying
to figure out who Ivy is now,

make her best person
she can be.

You can't change things
with the family you lost,

so maybe, uh...

you should try it with
the family you still have.


Something's bad, something's
broken, something's wrong.

It's all gonna go wrong.

I'm not mad, I'm not mad.

Tilly, Tilly.
You can't be back here.

Oh, hey, there, Weaver.

Um, I'm glad to see
your face.

I came by earlier, but Rogers,

he didn't want
to play the game with me.

I tried to warn him. I did.

But there's bad things in the air.

Tilly, Tilly, calm down.

- Everything's fine.
- No, everything's not fine.

You brought a monster in here,

and I can see her
for what she really is!

You know what?
You're right.

She is a monster.

I believe you.

Oh, you do?

Well, I know you better than most.

You see things others don't.

And that's what
makes you special.

Uh, what's... what's that?

It's a painting of mine.

I thought I told you to go home.

No, no, no. You can't
show this to the monster.

She'll use it, and then
she'll try and hurt you,

and I don't want you to be hurt!

Get out of my way, or I'll
have to have you escorted out.

You told me you believed me.

I do.

And I promise
nothing bad's gonna happen,

but right now...

you have to go home.

You both want me to leave?

I'm sorry,
but this is more important.




Dark One.



Oh! Hook.

Yes! It's Captain Hook.

I brought what you asked for.


Oh, yes!


Oh, the magic!

Closer. Bring the magic closer.

Come on. Break the bars.

Break the bars. Be a good boy.

You and me! You and me.
Look at us.

The Captain and the Crocodile
working together.

Who ever would have thunk it?

Don't push your luck.

Now let's break Alice
out of that tower.

Tell me how this thing works.


So the rumors are true, hmm?

Captain Hook has gone soft.


What are you doing here?

I'm catching you on your lie, Captain.

I mean, not only are you
not killing the Dark One,

but you're helping him.

You... You have given up
your great white whale.

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

Now there's a fly in the ointment!

Don't listen to his buzzing.

Listen to my voice.

Think of the tower.

Think of your daughter.

Don't listen to that idiot.

Don't let him in your head.

Oh, I'm already in his head.

Look at you.

Look at you,

letting the Dark One
do your dirty work

because you can't.

Hell, you can't even save

your own daughter without him.

Tell me... what's her name?


Don't you mention her name.

Don't you ever mention her name!

Tell me, does she know
the truth about her papa?

You want to see the real me?

Then I'm happy to oblige.

Oh, no, no, no, no.

Not here.

I want people
to see me defeat you.

By that,

I mean a duel, in public...

in the light of day.

You see, I think it's time

that everyone sees
the Hook that I see.

No! Enough! Let me out!

I'll r-r-rip his face off,
take his other leg,

give you his hand...
whatever you want.

No one need know it's me.

And then your legend
will live on...

♪ Forever ♪

Otherwise, you are
gonna lose everything.


I think he means that
he's gonna lose everything.

Ignore the imp.

Yeah, but the imp wants what you want.

Freedom calls.

I can help you if you let me.

If you let me out!


No. No, this is my fight,

- It's a duel you want...
- Hmm.

...oh, it's a duel you'll get.

Pistols at dawn.


My first painting.
Happy now?

It's beautiful.

The calm before the storm.

Tell me about the killer.

You don't get answers
until you give some.

Now, come here,
look at the painting,

and tell me what
it really means to you.



As a child, I loved the ocean.

I always wanted to visit.

Then I grew up, forgot about it,

and it's a distant memory.

That's all.

It must have been quite a day
when you finally got out there.

You must have felt
like a real sea captain.

Actually, I've still never been.

But the ocean's so close.

I mean, why... why not
grab your special someone

and go touch the sea?

Because I don't have anyone!
Is that what you want to hear?!


They say all great art starts with pain.

And now I know yours.

The killer is also
grappling with pain...

an unfillable void, if you will.

And just like you, they're looking

for a way to express that pain,

to externalize it in a way
that only makes sense to them.

Both the doctor
and the baker were given

a gift before they were attacked...

a heart-shaped candy box

filled with chocolate
marzipan truffles.

That's quite specific.

Everyone has their obsessions.

So, if you want to find the killer,

all you have to do
is follow your heart.


What are you doing here?

I'll tell you what I'm not doing.

Carrying that any further.

Mom saved
some of your old stuff.

If you want it, you can take it.

It's nice to see you, too.

Oh, calm down.

I just carried a box

full of your stuff
to your doorstep.

Didn't even get a thank you.

Why are you really here, Ivy?

To talk about Mom?

Do you even care?

You know, it's been a week now.

Okay, tap your brakes, Jacinda.
I am still processing.

Not everyone has the kind

of mom and daughter relationship
that you have with Lucy.

Yeah, well, everybody
has problems... everybody.

Even me and Lucy.


Since when are you two
not besties?

Since this morning.

I don't know.

There's something off with her,

and for the first time ever,
I don't have Victoria to blame.

I only have me.

Look, there are so many things
that you do that annoy me,

wallowing in self-pity being an example.

You're a great mother. That's a fact.

You love your daughter.

And unlike Victoria,
you make sure she knows it.

Well, I try to.

So you did come here to talk.

Next time, just say so.


- Mm.
- Yeah.

You know what?

Actually, I have something for you.


It's Beatrice.

I never thought
I'd see her again.

Our childhood seems
like so long ago.


Almost like a...
like another world, right?

Mm. You have no idea.


And you know what?

Now I know what I have to do.

To make it good with Mother.

What do you mean? How?

I have to finish what she started.


Ten paces.
Then turn. Then shoot.












I should call you something.


Promise me you'll be okay.

I will return
as soon as I can.

- I love you.
- Alice.


You're fine, sir.

Just nicked...

which is more
than I can say for Ahab.

He may survive the day,

but your aim was true
as the north star.

What's the matter, sir?

You did it, Captain! You won.

I haven't won
anything that mattered.

I think... I think I've made
a dreadful mistake.

I have to leave.


The candy store said

this was the last place they
delivered the chocolates to.

You'd think a member of the occult

would work somewhere less cheery.

I think it's about to get
a lot less cheery.


Marzipan truffles.

The woman who runs this place
is the next target.

Hello, there.
How can I help you?

Hyperion PD.

We'd like to speak to the woman
who received this package,

a Luanne Hoffs-Drawler.

Is she here?


Luanne was my wife.
She passed away years ago.

What's this all about?

Thank you for your time.

This whole thing was a setup.

I warned you of Eloise.

Either she's distracting us,

or the killer is using her
to distract us.

From what?

It's not as if we have
any leads

or even know
who the next target is.

We know the last one...
the Baker in the hospital.





What are you doing here?

I... I don't know.
I, uh... I had to be here,

but, ugh, I don't want to be.

I... I want to be somewhere else.
Somewhere nice.

Tilly, put the scalpel down.

No. No, really, you're too late.

I tried to warn you,
but you wouldn't listen.

You didn't pay attention
to the thing that matters most,

and that's when people get hurt!

I'm sorry, Tilly.

I should have paid
more attention.

Just... Just tell me what happened.
We can help you.

No. You're too late.

Don't you understand?

I told you something bad
would happen today!

And neither of you listened.

And now you're both too late.

- Tilly!
- Don't...






I was starting to worry.

There's no need to worry, Starfish.

I'm here now.

I have something in here

that can smash this tower
to pieces.




What's happening?

I... I don't know.

But I do.

What did you do to me?

No less than you deserve.

You're poisoned now,

and it will corrupt your heart
every time Alice draws near.

You've both been marked.

Please don't do this.

He's my father.
He's a good man.

Not good enough.

Your father went
on a little detour

because there's more important
things to him than his daughter.

He fought a duel for his precious honor.

You didn't come right back.

You promised me.

I only stopped for a moment.
I swear.

How did you do this to me?

I simply made sure
the bullet was poisoned.

Your pride did the rest.




You can't keep me from her.

I will get her out.


You will fail her
again and again.

You might as well
go back to the tavern

and have another drink.

Papa, where are you?!
Save me!

Such a heartbreaking cry for help.

Papa, please help!

I couldn't let you free her.

And now you never will.

Please, Papa, save me!

Help me, Papa! Please!

Help me!


You here?



No, no,
I know how this looks, but...

there's no way
that Tilly killed those women.

This has to be...

her upside-down
thinking gone awry.

I think it's a bit more
than that, actually.

Tilly had, uh, experience

with this cult some years before.

You know, they took
the one person

that mattered most to her.

The one person
who spent time with her

and who could
really understand her.

Her father.

In the eyes of the law,
that's motive.

Yeah, but...
she's not a killer.

You don't think
she did this, do you?


No, of course I don't.

Well, then we're
on the same page.

So, how do
we make this right?

I'll head back to the station

and buy us the time we need.

But they're gonna want
one of us accountable,

should anything else happen.

So, while I stay there...

I'll find Tilly.

I'll prove her innocence.




Mochi from Lucky Cat?

I, uh... I do like mochi.

This is just a thank you
for some good advice.

Well, thank you.

You want to come in?

So, what did I do to deserve
the city's best mochi?

Well, you were right about Jacinda.

There aren't that many
people who really know me,

and I forgot that she does.

Henry, apples don't fall
too far from the family tree.

And, like my mother,

I have done some...horrible things.

And, like her, I need to fix them.


I want you to help me...
to find my other sister,

to find Anastasia.

Wait, wait. Wait.
You have another sister?

Like I said, it's complicated,

and there's a lot
you don't know about me.

But Anastasia has more reason

to hate me than Jacinda ever did.

And how exactly can I help?

By being who you are deep down.

You might not realize it,

but I think you could
be the hero I need.


Well, then, let's drink to heroes.



You know we don't serve

shots of strawberry milk
here, right?

You better have a good reason

for putting my liquor license at risk.

It's Henry.

I need your help.

This page, it suddenly appeared.

It says Henry is going to die
if he kisses my mom.

So that's why

you stopped them
from kissing last night?

It's all my fault.

I... I found Henry

and... and tricked him
into coming here.

And now... now I'm going
to lose him.

I know you didn't believe me

when I told you that you were
the Evil Queen, but...

Yeah, well, a lot's
happened since then, Lucy.

And you know what?

I believe you now.

You do?

You've read the book?

Read it? I lived it.

And I am not going to let

my granddaughter
face this alone.

So you're awake?
I... I knew you were.

You are Regina.
So that makes me...

That makes you... a Mills, Lucy.

And so am I.

Just don't call me grandma.

The Mills family does
what heroes do best...

we save people.

- Like my dad?
- Yes.

And we're gonna start
exactly like your father did...

with a set of walkie-talkies
and... an operation name.

Any suggestions?

"Operation Hyacinth."

The first thing
my dad gave my mom.

Operation Hyacinth it is.

And what's our next move?

Well, what do you think?

We're gonna give
your mother and father

the happy ending they deserve.
