Out in the hall, Emma informs Grumpy, Whale, Red and her parents that they're in the clear. Charming hopes that everything will calm down for a few, so they can catch their breath. Emma's face is grim, so I hope she's lying to everyone so she can handle this on her own, except -- how can she do that? Doesn't keeping them in the dark put everyone at a greater risk of discovery? And? If I'm wrong, if Emma truly believes Greg, then I'm a little angry. I know last season, the show runners gave interviews in which they said Emma's superpower is dampened when she's emotional. I can understand why she'd be crappy at knowing Sydney was tricking her when she was so worried about Henry, but it seems to me that either the series has to show them working sometime, or else they need to have a very special episode in which Emma admits to herself that she wouldn't know the truth if it bit her in the ass.
Gold's shop. Gold takes out the white globe he got from Cora and pricks his finger on the spike conveniently attached to the stand. When his blood drips onto the globe, red continents appear. A darker red blob appears about halfway down the U.S. Eastern Seaboard. Gold smiles and whispers, "Bae."
When Emma and the two idiots arrive home, it's morning. Henry pads down the stairs and asks where everyone was all night. At least they had Granny babysitting him. When Snow says that Hook and Rumpy had a fight and someone got hurt, Emma adds, "We weren't sure if Dr. Frankenstein could fix him, but he did." Henry looks up at Emma. "Doctor? Oh, that's who Whale is." Emma says, "Right, but without the neck bolts." Henry gives her the side-eye. "The monster had the neck bolts, not the doctor." Emma gets a mischievous look in her eye and smirks at her mother as she says, "Right, but either way, some of us having known him, it's weird." Snow's voice is quick and clipped as she insists it is not weird. "We're past it. We were cursed." When Henry asks what they're talking about, Charming leans in and says, "Nothing." Henry tries to ask again, but Snow shakes him off. Henry grabs his Once Upon A Time book and brings it back to the counter, as he explains that Frankenstein isn't even in it. "If the curse went to place with other stories, then who knows who else is in this town."
There's a knock on the door. It's Gold. When Emma tells him they've all had a long night, he asks her if she remembers she owes him a favor, because he is cashing it in. When Emma starts to object, he gives her the business about honoring her agreements. By now, Charming is right at his daughter's side. Henry wanders over, too. Gold tells Emma he needs her to help him find someone and they're leaving today. "Pack a bag." Emma asks who they're looking for. Rumpy says, "My son, and it has to be today because every minute I'm here, is a minute closer to me killing Hook. So it's really best for all concerned if I leave, and you're going to come with me." Looking at Charming and then Snow, he adds, "We have a long history, so know this, and know it to be true: If any harm comes to Belle while I'm gone, I'm killing all of you." When Emma holds Henry close, Rumpy tells her, "I'll see you at noon." That was a little excessive, even for him, don't you think? We cut to...
