Regina: Evil doesn't always look evil. Sometimes, it's staring right at us, and we don't even realize it.
Recapper: Your ability to hide your mustache twirling is a constant inspiration to me, Regina.
Back at the sheriff's station, Emma tells Mary about the knife in her heating vent. She thinks Mary should hire a lawyer. Just then, Gold walks in. He offers to represent Mary. They didn't realize he was a lawyer. He reminds them of his interest in contracts. He managed to persuade the judge to drop the charges against him, when he beat Moe French nearly to death. Emma doesn't want him to exert his influence; she wants to find the truth. Gold counters that his influence may be exactly what's needed here. He's not going to stop her from doing her job; he's only there to help. Mary's heard enough. She says Gold is right. She needs his help. She pleads with Emma to do her best work and prove her innocent, but in the meantime, she'll take practical help from Gold. Gold says it's in Mary's best interest. Emma certainly hopes it is. Once Gold is alone with his client, Mary points out she can't pay him. He's not in it for the money. Mary wants to know why he's helping, then.
Gold: Let's just say I'm invested in your future.

We cut to Rumpy's Enchanted Forest estate. He's at his wheel when Grumpy and Snow enter. Grumpy complains that the potion changed Snow. Grumpy's all duh it took away the love from her heart. There's no way to restore her to who she was. He surveys his shelves full of potions as he explains that no potion can bring back true love, and reiterates that love is the most powerful magic of all and the one he has been unable to bottle. He claims that if you can bottle love, you can do anything. He then turns his attention to Snow and asks what she really wants. She wants his help in killing the Queen. Rumpy gives her a bow and arrow and explains that she has to kill Queenie en route from her castle to the summer palace. He hands her a map and shows her where she should stand when she fires the arrow.
Rumpy: An arrow fired from this bow will get you exactly what you need. It always finds its target.
Grumpy tries to talk Snow out of this course of action, but she's in it to win it, so Grumpy says she'll have to go it alone. Snow says that was always her plan and asks Rumpy what she has to do, in return. Rumpy says she doesn't have to do anything. Snow knows his deals always come with a price. What's in it for him?
