Storybrooke, Mr. Gold's Shop. When Emma and Regina enter, Gold takes a look at our Sheriff. "Do my eyes deceive me or is that the look of a true believer?" I just want to say that I appreciate the fact that neither Gold nor Regina bothered to pretend with Emma that the fairy tale is just a fairy tale. I was afraid this episode was going to be full of that sort of nonsense and I was dreading it. The women want Gold's help saving Henry. After Gold reminds Regina that magic comes with a price, he admits to Emma that from strands of her parents' hair he made the most powerful potion ever -- true love. Emma immediately catches on that that's why she's the savior. Gold says that when he created the dark curse, he placed a single drop of true love on the parchment as an escape valve -- just in case of a rainy day. Emma: "Well, it's storming like a bitch. Where is it?" Emma has to be the one to retrieve the magic because she's the product of it. When Emma asks where the magic is, Gold turns to Regina. "Tell me your majesty -- is our friend still in the basement?" Regina knows who he means. "Oh, you twisted little imp. You hid it with her?" Gold corrects: "Not with her -- in her." Was I the only one who was misdirected here? I really thought they were talking about Belle the first time I saw this scene. I'm so glad they're not.
Emma just wants to know who this "her" is. Gold tells her it's someone for whom she should be prepared. He dusts off the long case lying on his counter and opens it. Emma looks inside, "What is that?" Gold: "Your father's sword." Commercial.
Storybrooke Hospital. Emma holds Henry's book in one hand as she strokes his hair with the other. "Henry, you were right about the curse. I should have believed you. I'm sorry." She tucks the book under the corner of his pillow and whispers in his ear, "For when you wake up." When Regina enters the room, Emma tells her she has 10 minutes with the boy. Regina: "Do you know where to meet?" Emma: "Yeah. Don't be late." Alone with Henry, Regina approaches his bed. She leans over the boy and says, "I'm sorry."
