Mary: Why is it so important to you -- what happens to me?
Emma: Because when Regina framed me, and you bailed me out, I asked you why, and you said you trusted me. And then when I wanted to leave Storybrooke because I thought it was best for Henry, you told me I needed to stay because that was best for him. I realized all my life, I have been alone -- walls up. Nobody's ever been there for me, except for you. I can't lose that. I cannot lose my family.
Mary [clearly touched]: Family?
Emma [self-conscious]: Whatever. You know what I mean. Wouldn't you rather face this together, than alone?
Mary hands the keys back to Emma, and they keep their hands clasped together for a moment as they smile at one another. The clock starts to chime. Emma says, "The arraignment. Regina."
Sheriff's Office, Exterior. Regina pulls into the parking place next to the empty spot reserved for our Sheriff. She saunters into the building but stops dead in her tracks when she gets into the office. The camera pans to the cell. Mary Margaret is sitting on her cot, reading the Storybrooke Daily Mirror, so it must not have been 8:00 AM when we heard the clock in the previous scene. Anyhow, there's a big headline reading: "HEARTLESS!" over Mary's picture on the front page. Mary looks up from the paper. "Madame Mayor." Regina's smile is forced. "Good morning." Gold comes in and says his client isn't receiving any visitors and offers to see Regina out.
Once they're alone, Regina asks Gold what Mary's doing there. He points out that she came back. Regina reminds him he said their plan would work -- that she'd take the key and run. Gold confirms she did, but says it appears Emma is more resourceful than they thought.
Gold: Fear not, your Majesty. Miss Blanchard is still guilty of murder. You may yet get what you want.
Recapper: Say murder again. I love hearing that with a Scots burr.
Regina: Stop stepping on my lines, peasant. As for you, Gold, oh I'd better get what I want. The only reason I made a deal with you Gold is because I wanted results.
Gold: And results you shall have. See you at the arraignment.
Gold watches as Regina storms out of the building. His face reveals nothing. What angle is he working? I mean, his own, obviously. I can't help but think back to the shot of Belle during the opening narration. What deal did Regina make with him? Gold can't believe for a minute that Mary killed Kathryn. He's too smart for that. This is going to drive me crazy.
