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."
Mayor's Office. Regina plops Jefferson's hat box on a table and opens it, pausing to ask if Henry truly asked Emma to protect her. After Emma says, "Yes," she gets a look at the hat. She realizes it's Jefferson's. Regina plays dumb like she doesn't know who Jefferson is. Emma tips her...um...hat no further. Just then, Charming and Snow enter, with brooms, even though Sweeps isn't until November. (Sorry.) They'll serve as torches to ward off the wraith, when it returns. Our pretty crybaby knows it's old-fashioned, "But so am I."
Regina explains that the hat will open a portal to "our land." All they have to do is shoo Chintzy into it. While Charming scoffs at Regina's nonchalance, Snow is on the ball. "I don't understand. I thought our land was gone." Regina answers (and probably lies and covers), "It is, but sending it to a place that no longer exists -- well, that's banishing it to oblivion." Chintzy blows the doors open and seems to blow out at least a couple of the torches. We cut to commercial, to give our crew time to relight them.
