Emma hopes that Henry isn't scarred for life. Henry: "I'm not. Well, not by this." Heh. Emma suggests they throw out the article and get their news from something reliable, "...like the Internet." Ahahaha. Henry: "This is what I've been trying to tell you. Good can't beat evil, because good doesn't do this kind of thing. My mom plays dirty, that's why you can't beat her, ever." When Emma tries to calm Henry by explaining she has a new ally in Mr. Gold, Henry says, "Mr. Gold? He's even worse than she is. You already owe him one favor. You don't want to owe him any more. Don't do this." Emma looks at her little boy and scowls. We cut to...
Mayor's Office: Emma stomps in and yells at Regina about abusing her power to access juvie records. She doesn't care for herself, but it's hurting Henry. Regina can't love Henry so she can't really care, and tells Emma that Henry is fine. Emma points out it's probably painful for him to have his adoptive mother smearing his biological mother. Regina says, "All I did was expose him to the truth, and as for the legality, I did nothing wrong, but you and Sidney can get into that at the debate." Apparently there will be a debate right before the election.
The women walk down the stairs, past some drop cloths and I wonder why the set designers would choose to show the place is being rehabbed, but only for a moment. Regina warns Emma that Mr. Gold is a snake and that she'd better be careful who she gets into bed with. As Emma says she's not getting into bed with anyone, she's just, "...fighting fire with..." Regina opens a door and both women are knocked to the floor by a burst of flame. Regina's leg is trapped under some scaffolding. Emma frees it, but Regina still can't walk. The fire spreads. Commercial.
Enchanted Forest, Rumpy's Village: Rumpy instructs Bae on soaking wool in liquefied sheep fat. When the boy questions him on wasting the wool, Rumpy explains the beggar's story about the dagger. "If I kill the Dark One with his dagger, I take his powers." Bae is shocked, but Rumpy is too excited to notice. "Can you imagine me with those powers, Bae? I could get to redeem myself. I could turn it toward good. I'll save all the children on the front lines, not just you, my boy." While Bae would love to see that, he is not a coward. "If the law says I'm to fight, I can fight." Rumpy: "No, the law doesn't want you to fight, son. The law wants you to die. That's no battle, that's sacrifice, son." He points out the scarlet sky in the distance. "That's not the fires of the battlefields. That's the blood of our people, son. That's the blood of children -- the blood of children like you. What sane person would want to get involved with that?" Bae: "So it's true you ran? [...] And mother, did she leave you like the knight said? You told me she was dead." Rumpy: "She is dead." Bae doesn't look like he believes his father, but waits a minute and asks what they need to do. Rumpy says they'll set fire to the wooden floors and rafters of the stone castle.
