Storybrooke. Snow's Hovel. Watching over Henry as he sleeps, Charming tells Ruby the child may never again see his mother or grandmother. "How am I going to break that news to him?" Red says he won't have to. When Charming lists all their obstacles, Red assures him he'll find another way. "I know you. And I know you'll never give up until you do. And David? You're not going to be doing this alone." They enjoy their moment of friendship, and then Red asks Charming to call Granny. "I may have left Belle chained up in the library." Oops! Charming will take care of it, but he wonders where Red is going. She smiles as she reaches the door. "I still have a few hours of wolf time, left. I'm going to do something I haven't done in a long time." Charming: "What's that?" Red: "Run." And with that she's out the door and howling at the moon.
Enchanted Present. Night. Emma finds Snow sitting in the forest. "What are you doing?" Snow says she's just thinking. Emma says Mulan has some ideas on where to find Cora. When they return to the campsite, Aurora is sleeping by the fire. We enter her dream. She's in the same flaming room we saw Henry in at the beginning of the episode. He's there too, but this time, he's wearing his bling. Dream Henry closes his eyes and concentrates until the flames dissipate. Aurora looks at him with fear. Henry says, "Wait. Don't be scared." Aurora wakes and tells Snow and Emma about her dream. When they ask what the little boy said, Aurora says, "He said his name was Henry." Dun dun dun!
I sure hope we have our reunion soon. While this was a strong episode, I want our family back together. The previews give me hope that we're almost there. Keep your fingers crossed (unless you're the one who carves the turkey, since that would just be awkward and potentially dangerous).
I'll be back after a week off, with coverage of "Into The Deep." Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it. Before you start cooking and bingeing, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then come on over to the forum, where we're always the ladies in red.
