Storybrooke. The Chintz Monster flies through the streets. In the jail, the lights flicker on and off. Regina calls out, "Who's there?" Chintzy enters, chintzes about for a moment and then starts with the soul suckage. The Charmings burst in and save the day, well, after Chintzy throws them and some office furniture around. Strangely, enough, the papers stay tacked to the bulletin board and while the lights go out, they don't blow out. Snow finds an aerosol can and a cigarette lighter and shoots flames at Chintzy, which bothers him enough to make him fly out a window.
Regina gasps. As Emma helps the Mayor Queen to her feet, she asks about Chintzy. Regina explains wraiths, soul suckage and marking, etc. Snow asks if she killed the beast. Regina says no. It's just off, recharging. It won't stop 'til it has devoured her -- its prey. She says there's no way to kill it, since you can't kill something that's already dead. With any luck, Rupert Giles was transported to Storybrooke too, and can set them straight.
Emma notes they have a problem. Charming's face is terrifically stern for such a crybaby. He says, "No. We don't. Regina does." Amen, Daddy. Amen. All three ladies are surprised. Snow is so surprised she refers to him as David. Interesting, especially in light of next week's episode title. Emma: "You want to let her die?" Charming: "Why not? Then it goes away. Then we're safe." Regina: "That's quite an example you're setting for your daughter." Oh she is too much. Charming counters that Queenie doesn't get to judge them. Regina says, "Let me ask you something. Where do you think that thing came from? Gold." Charming looks perplexed, which perplexes me, since, back at the shop, Rumpy said as much. None of this matters. What matters is Emma reminding her father that she made a promise to his grandson. Regina is not dying. Regina seems surprised by this. Snow asks Regina, "Since it can't be killed, what do you suggest?" Regina: "Send it somewhere it can't hurt anyone."
