Back in Neverland, Cora is down in her portable heart vault, a necessity for the worlds-traveling witch. She selects a box from the top row, opens it and takes out a candy apple red heart. Once in her hands, it begins to glow. When she blows on the heart, several of the other boxes start glowing and slide out from the -- man I don't know what anything is called any more. You know what I'm talking about, I hope. These heart boxes are like Post Office boxes or safety deposit boxes, but slide out from the larger structure like drawers. So yeah. Like that, then. Cora walks off with the original heart.
Out on the steps of her Neverland hut, Cora holds the heart aloft and says, "Rise." Below, all her victims rise and lumber off zombie-style, and while I'll continue to refer to them as zombies, this is about the only time they move as such.
Enchanted Forest. Emma shows Aurora a school picture of Henry and is freaked when Aurora confirms that's the little boy she saw. When Emma wonders how it's possible that Aurora could dream about Henry, Snow explains that it's probably not a dream. As a victim of the Sleeping Curse, Snow has been in that room herself.
Aurora is a little miffed that Snow didn't come clean with her about her dreams not being dreams, but Snow insists she was protecting Aurora. Snow is heartened by the fact that Aurora and Henry contacted one another. It means they have a way home now. Emma disagrees. They have a compass. The wardrobe ashes are still with Cora, and it would be suicide to steal from her. Snow doesn't know how to stop Cora, but she knows someone who will know how: Rumpy. Emma puts the pieces together. Aurora must go back to sleep and contact Henry.
Fiery Room of Dreams. Dodging the flames, Aurora screams out Henry's name. Finally, he appears in the other corner, but makes no effort to control the flames with his magical necklace. Aurora tells him who she is and that she's with Emma and Snow. They're fine, but they want to come home and need his help.
Storybrooke. Morning. Mary Margaret's Hovel. Regina and Charming are both sleeping nearby (but not together, which I only specify, because, you know... David Nolan) when Henry wakes yelling that Snow and Emma are alive. Henry explains they need Mr. Gold's help in defeating the person who is keeping them from returning. Regina: "Who?" Henry: "Your mother." Commercial.
Granny's Diner. Belle and Rumpy's long-awaited hamburger date is interrupted when Regina barges in, and demands to speak to the Dark One. Rumpy is understandably prickly, not just because Regina is cock blocking him now, but because she locked up Belle for the past 28 years. Granny realizes the powder keg that is Regina and Rumpy, so, not wanting her paying customers to be turned into newts or the like, she tells everyone she's closing immediately and that they must leave. Regina assures her there won't be trouble, but Granny keeps her eyes open anyhow. The better to see her, my dear.
