Enchanted Forest, Knifingham Palace: Genie delivers the box to Queenie. She's soooooooooooo in love with him she cannot stand it. Oh, bitch. Please! She blathers about there being no escape. Genie presents her with the box and says her daddy says it holds the key to her freedom. Regina unlocks it to reveal the Agrabahn Viper, which can kill with a single bite, so it's basically overkill, since it has two heads, and hence two mouths, and more hence-ing -- two sets of fangs. What's more important is that it is the worst bit of CGI I have seen on this show, so far. The clunky CGI in the Enchanted Forest usually doesn't bother me. I sort of like it, usually, because it adds to the surreal quality of our Fairy Tale Universe, but this is just insulting. Anyhow, being the Genie of Agrabah, Genie knows all too well of the viper's venom. When Queenie pretends she is going to allow it to bite her and free her...to death, Genie stays her hand, and instead proposes using the viper to kill the king. Regina pretends she is all shocked that Genie would do this for her, but c'mon.
Storybrooke, Granny's Diner: The MYSTERIOUS STRANGER finds Henry furiously scribbling away. He's making notes of what he can remember from his lost book. The MYSTERIOUS STRANGER says, "Must be a hell of a book." And okay, my pet theory is not unique, but still, I'll sum it up. I think the MYSTERIOUS STRANGER is probably the little boy who found Emma, and I also think he has an enchanted typewriter, and that enchanted typewriter probably enabled him to write the Once Upon A Time book, and he has an inkling that it's fact, not fiction. Anyhow, when the MYSTERIOUS STRANGER asks Henry what the book's all about, Henry is all, "Stuff." Henry wants to know why the MYSTERIOUS STRANGER is in Storybrooke and doesn't buy his explanation that he's there for writing inspiration. "You can write, anywhere. What are you really doing here?" The MYSTERIOUS STRANGER replies, "Stuff," wishes Henry luck with his stories, and saunters off.
Sheriff's Office: Sidney and pore over the documents they stole from City Hall. There's an escrow statement with Regina's name on it, and Sidney declares it proof. Emma finds blueprints and can't imagine what Regina is building out in the woods. Sidney says it doesn't matter. The bank documentation is Regina's undoing. Emma suffers a conscience attack and blathers that this evidence is fruit of the poisonous tree. No court will accept it, because it was illegally obtained. Sidney points out that they don't need her to go to jail. They just need to prove to the town what Regina is and how she ruins everything everyone loves. He then shows her a file of surveillance photos of Henry and Emma at the castle structure and says Regina was just waiting to destroy their special place until the moment it would most hurt Henry and Emma.
