Fairy Tales Can Come True

Emma says, "Seriously?" to the Sheriff, when he doesn't also open her cell. He says something about Regina's drinks being stronger than they thought. Emma says she wasn't drunk. "There was a wolf in the middle of the road." The Sheriff isn't buying. Regina enters, complaining that Henry has run away again. She's surprised to see Emma and asks, "Do you know where he is?" Emma says, "I haven't seen him since I dropped him at your house and..." she gestures to the bars she is currently behind, "...I have a pretty good alibi." She suggests a few things like checking with friends (Regina says Henry has none) and checking his email. Regina gets snitty and wonders why Emma thinks she knows so much about this. Emma says, "Finding people is what I do. Here's an idea, how about you guys let me out and I'll help you find him."

Mayoral Manse: Henry has wiped his email, so Emma uses some "hard disc recovery utility" and finds a receipt for a website called whosyourmomma.org. He used a credit card to pay the $265.50 registration fee. The card he used belongs to a Mary Margaret Blanchard. Regina says Ms. Blanchard is Henry's teacher.

Storybrooke School: Ms. Mary Margaret Blanchard (Ginnifer Goodwin aka Snow White) has a cute little pixie haircut, that reveals she has a Stephen Colbert ear. She's holding a beautiful blue bird just like one Snow White held earlier in the episode (which I forgot to mention) as she lectures her class about the purpose of the birdhouses they are building. "It's a home, not a cage. A bird is free. It will do what it will. This is for them, not for us. They're loyal creatures." At the open window, she sets her bird free, and it flies 'til it lands on its blue house. The children are enchanted. Ms. Blanchard continues. "If you love them and they love you, they will always find you."

When the bell rings, the children leave for recess. One little girl gives the teacher not an apple, but a pear. Nice touch, Show. Blanchard thanks her and looks up to see Regina enter the room. "Where's my son?" When Emma enters too, Regina asks the teacher if she gave Henry her credit card, so that Henry could find Emma. Mary Margaret looks at Emma. "I'm sorry, who are you?" When Emma stammers, Regina snaps, "The woman who gave him up for adoption."

Mary Margaret digs through her wallet and finds her credit card is missing. "Clever boy. I never should have given him that book." Regina demands to know what is up with all the talk about this confounded book. Mary Margaret assures her it's just a book of old stories she gave him. "As you well know, Henry is a special boy. So smart. So creative. And as you might be aware -- lonely. He needed it." Regina: "What he needs is a dose of reality. This is a waste of time." Regina's purse catches on some books and knocks them to the ground. She doesn't let that slow her down. She growls at Emma to have a nice trip back to Boston, and stomps off.Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13Next
