Emma is tearful as she tells Jefferson she knows what it's like to be separated from one's child. She plays along like she's starting to believe the other worlds are real. "If what you say is true, that woman in the other room is my mother -- and I want to believe that more than anything in the world. So maybe you're right. Maybe I need to open myself up more. Maybe if I want magic, I have to start believing." Mollified, Jefferson's voice is soft as he asks if she'll help him get it to work. Emma says she'll try. When Jefferson turns to grab the hat off the table, Emma picks up the telescope and whacks him in the head. "Crazy son of a bitch." She reaches down, takes his gun and runs off to free Mary.
While Emma is untying Mary, Jefferson comes in the room. Mary screams to look out. Jefferson rushes at Emma knocking her on top of Mary, who is still on the chair. The three of them tumble to the floor. The gun falls in the scuffle. Emma, still flat on the floor, reaches for it, but Jefferson pulls her back and I keep thinking poor Jennifer Morrison had to get some rug burn filming this scene. Jefferson gets on top of Emma. As she's pushing his head away from her, we can see the scar across his neck. He pulls Emma to her feet, throws her across the room, picks up the gun and aims it at her. He picks up his hat, puts it on his head and smiles. Emma's eyes are as wide as saucers when she catches sight of his scar. Jefferson knows she sees it, and says, "Off with his head."
Mary is behind him and has worked herself free. She grabs a croquet mallet and strikes at Jefferson with all her might. While he's still unsteady, she kicks him in the gut and through a window. Defenestration for the win! We watch Jefferson, his hat and shards of glass falling. The women walk over to the broken window and look below. All that remains are the hat and broken glass.
Emma and Mary go outside and look down into the hat. Mary picks it up and asks who "he" was. Emma deems him a very lonely man and then asks, "By the way, have you been taking kick boxing, and not telling me about it?" Mary says, "I have no idea where that came from." I do! I do! They walk through the property until they find Emma's car, covered with a tarp. The keys are on the front seat. Mary refers to Emma as "Sheriff" and asks if she's taking her back, now. Emma instead hands Mary her keys. She doesn't want Mary to run, but says it's her choice. She warns her that being on the run is hard. Emma begs Mary Margaret to believe and trust her. She knows she can get her out of this.
