Recapper's House. Your recapper finally takes a sip of wine. Or two. But no more. There's work to be done!
Charming's Timeline. Our hero rides hell-for-leather on his trusty steed. The enchanted ring shines ever brightly as he approaches his true love. At last he reaches a clearing in the woods where the Seven Dwarfs surrounding Snow White's hand-crafted casket inform him he's too late. Charming begs them to open the glass lid anyhow. Moved by his tears and his request to say goodbye, they do as he asks. He bends over and kisses Snow White on the lips. Rainbows and sparkles shoot out of them and ripple all over the Enchanted Forest. Snow White awakens. "You found me." Charming asks if she doubted he would. Yes, I just plagiarized myself from the pilot recap. Did you ever doubt I would?
As Charming and Snow walk along the shore, she asks how he managed to do it. He shows her his mother's ring and says it led him back to her. "Now, I never want it off your finger." He drops to one knee and proposes. Snow holds out her hand. He slips it on. She looks at the stone and says, "What do you think?" They kiss, but when they part, Charming can see Snow looks upset so he asks her what's wrong. She says it's the little matter of his father and her step-mother. She says they should take back the kingdom. Charming asks her how. Snow: "Like we shall do everything... together."
Storybrooke, Day. David stares at the clock tower, It's just about 7:00 AM as far as I can tell, but knowing the timeline shouldn't it be 8:00 AM? Whatever. He gets in his truck and drives off.
Inside the library, Emma hugs the magic containing egg as the elevator lifts her back up. Suddenly, it jolts to a stop. Emma yells out for Regina, but Gold appears at the top of the shaft. He says he came to check on her and is glad he did because Regina has abandoned her and sabotaged the elevator. Since the top of the elevator is open, Emma says she's climbing out. Gold tells her there's no way to scale the shaft while carrying the egg. Emma says she can try, but Gold tells her to toss it up and promises her boy will be fine. Emma trusts him and throws him the egg, then climbs the cable to the top. I'd be stuck in that elevator for the rest of my days -- if I had to rely on my rope-climbing prowess. Not Emma, though. Maybe rope climbing is her real superpower and the lie detection gift was misdirection.
