Storybrooke, Maine: Emma brings Henry home yet again. Regina says nothing when she opens the door, and nothing when Henry runs past her and into the house. She has to think it over before even thanking Emma, but then adds that Henry seems to have taken a shine to her. Emma: "You know what's kinda crazy? Yesterday was my birthday, and when I blew out the candle on this cupcake I bought myself, I actually made a wish that I didn't have to be alone on my birthday, and then Henry showed up."
Regina makes it clear that she's not inviting Emma back into Henry's life. For the last ten years she has, "Changed every diaper, soothed every fever, endured every tantrum. You may have given birth to him, but he is my son." She adds that Emma gave every right when she "tossed" Henry away and reminds her that a closed adoption gives her no legal right to Henry, and tells her to get in her car and get out of town. "Because if you don't, I will destroy you, if it is the last thing I do. Goodbye Miss Swan." As Regina storms off toward her door, Emma asks, "Do you love him?" Regina turns around all, "Excuse me?!" Emma: "Henry. Do you love him?" The Mayor's eyes are stone cold as she answers, "Of course I love him." Emma's superpower kicks in. She knows that Henry is right about his mother.
Henry is lying on his bed. Regina stands behind him, book in hand. She removes it from his room, carries it downstairs and stops to consider her reflection in front of her
magic mirror. She looks down at the book, then clutches it to her bosom and looks back in the mirror.
Hospital: Mary Margaret Blanchard pushes a flower cart through a ward. She stops by a male patient's bedside, leaves a vase of white flowers on his table. When he raises his hand, she grabs it and gives it a squeeze. She leaves the ward for a single-patient room enclosed by glass walls
reminiscent of Snow White's coffin. The patient's hospital I.D. bracelet reads: "JOHN DO; DOB: UNKNOWN; 67140404." Mary lays flowers on his bedside table, takes a quick look at him and walks out to the main ward, again. The patient never stirs. When the camera zooms out we see it's a comatose Charming.
Mayoral Manse: Henry stares out the window at the clock tower a block or two away. Light fog drifts nearby. We close in on the clock and then cut to Emma, who is approaching a Tudor style home. The sign on the lintel reads, "Granny's Bed & Breakfast." Inside, Granny (Beverly Elliott) is arguing with her granddaughter, Ruby (Meghan Ory, aka Red Riding Hood) about being out all night the night before and going out again, tonight. Ruby spits that she should have moved to Boston.
