Rumpy begs CJiC to stop humiliating him in front of his boy, so CJiC changes the subject, announcing it's close enough to Bae's 14th birthday to take him now. Rumpy pleads with them, and promises CJiC in charge that he'll do whatever he asks. CJiC gets really juiced by humiliating Rumpy, so he makes him bow down and kiss his jerk-in-chargey boot and promptly kicks Rumpy in the face. Bae kneels by his father's side, and when all the jerks ride off, the beggar comes back out and promises to be Rumpy's benefactor, if only he'll take him home and feed him. Rumpy, for the love of all that's holy, do not listen to Grima Wormtongue!
Storybrooke, Mayor's Office: Regina is holding a press conference announcing Sidney as new sheriff. Emma crashes it and informs Regina and everyone that the Mayor can only appoint a candidate, but that there still must be an election. Emma's running, too. How do you like them apples, Regina?
Enchanted Forest, Rumpy's: As Bae sleeps, Rumpy says there's no longer enough time to run away. Grima Wormtongue tells him he has to find another way. Rumpy says, as the town coward, his only choice is in which corner he should hide. Grima tells him to get ahold of himself and points out that it's weird that the Dark One would work for the foolish, useless Duke. He then reveals the Duke has the Dark One in his thrall, because he has in his possession, an enchanted dagger bearing the true name of the Dark One. Steal the dagger, and the Dark One (and all his power) will be under Rumpy's control. Rumpy is too fearful to keep the Dark One as a slave, so Grima says, "Then perhaps, instead of controlling the power, you need to take it." Oh right, because that's not scarier at all!
Storybrooke, Mr. Gold's Shop: Regina walks in and changes the open sign to read "Closed." She knows Gold found the clause in the town charter and showed it to Emma. Gold: "Legal documents, contracts -- if you like, have always been a fascination of mine." Regina: "Yes, you love to trifle with technicalities." Gold: "I like small weapons, you see. The needle. The pen. The fine point of the deal. Subtlety -- not your style, I know." Rumpy taunts her about Graham. Regina can't believe Gold is going up against her. He says they're both invested in the common good, he's just choosing a different side. Regina tells him Emma is the slow horse in this race. Rumpy: "Never underestimate someone who's acting for their child." Regina points out Henry isn't Emma's child, legally. Gold: "Oh, now who's trifling in technicalities?"
