Storybrooke Waterfront. When Charming, Granny and Red arrive at the cannery, they find Billy's tow truck abandoned. When Ruby says she smells blood, the trio looks around for him. Granny finds him lying on the ground in front of his truck. Well, she finds the top half of him. And Red's screams alert Charming to the fact that Red has found the bottom half of him in nearby dumpster. When Charming and Granny get to her, she cries, "It was the wolf. It was me." Meanwhile, I'm tempted to do another Mother Horowitzing Kitsis riff, because YOU JUST DON'T DO THAT TO GUS GUS, YOU MONSTERS. And I totally would, were I not short on time, and honestly more concerned about what pies I'm going to make for Thanksgiving. But I'm watching you, guys. I'm watching you. Yeah, I'm saying it with just about as much menace as that toddler in the E-Trade ads, and you know how menacing toddlers can be.
Storybrooke. Gold's Shop. Regina shows Henry's burn to Gold, who explains that Henry's dream is much more than a dream, which I think we already got, since he was burnt in the dream and retained the injury after waking, but what do I know? Anyhow, Rumpy exposits about how the dream is a side effect of the sleeping curse. And gets in a little jab about how she cast a curse without knowing the full effects. Regina: "My victims are not supposed to wake up, that's why I certainly never cared about what happened to them after." Remembering herself, she looks from Gold to Henry and then adds, "'Til now." Heh.
Rumpy educates them on the sleeping curse. "When people fall under a sleeping curse, the soul travels to a netherworld, where it resides until awoken. Now this world is between life and death, and it's very real. However, even when the curse is broken, sometimes, in sleep, the victims find their way back to that world -- victims like you." As he's explaining all this, Rumpy is preparing some sort of potion. Regina's short on patience, though. Her son is being tormented. She wants Rumpy to give him something to keep him from going there. Rumpy can't do that, but the potion he's prepared will allow Henry to control his actions while in the netherworld. "Once one controls something, one no longer need fear it."
Putting the potion inside a necklace nearly as gaudy as the Chintz Monster's, Rumpy hands it to a dubious Henry, whose mouth may not say it, but whose eyes scream, "Dude, I am so not wearing that. I'm already the weird kid at school, and in this town, that's saying something." If Henry wears the necklace while he's sleeping, the fear will stop and he will be able to come and go as he pleases. Regina wonders what Rumpy's price is for this favor. He tells her she couldn't afford his house call rates, but since this is for Henry, it's on him (Rumpy).
