Charming calls everyone to attention and raising his beer mug, he thanks everyone for joining them. "Mary Margaret and I, we have a saying -- that we will always find each other. And while I believe that with all my heart, I'd like you all to raise your glasses and join me when I say: Here's to not having to look for a while." After giving the guests time to laugh, Charming hefts his mug and says, "To Mary Margaret and Emma!"
As mother and daughter clink mugs, the door opens and in walks Regina. The party falls silent, until Grumpy, after grabbing a knife, asks what she's doing there. Emma explains that she invited Regina, but instead of seeing to her awkward guest and trying to help her settle in, she walks off with her parents and explains that they owe Regina their thanks for helping them get home. When Charming asks why she didn't think to warn them, Emma says, "I did, but you two were a little busy this afternoon." Snow says, "She tried to kill us. Yesterday." Emma says, "No she didn't. She's trying to change for Henry. He believes in her, and right now that's enough for me. I couldn't have changed if I wasn't given a chance, so she gets one, too." Snow and Charming look from each other to their daughter and nod.
At the counter, Regina is cutting Henry a piece of her lasagna. Unlike her fruit and pastry offerings, no one has seemed to die from it, yet. Henry says he's glad she came. Regina says she is too, and then offers Grumpy a piece of lasagna. He looks at it. "What's the secret ingredient? Poison?" Regina won't take the bait. "Red pepper flakes. Gives it some kick." Grumpy must be hungry because he accepts the plate and sniffs it, but doesn't put it back down.
Sidebar. I keep thinking about Grumpy and er...whatever Amy Acker's character's name is. Um...Nova. That's it. Nova. (I kept thinking Luna.) I wish there'd been some mention of him looking for her. Either that, or I wish she'd been sent out of Storybrooke (yeah, I know, back then when people tried to leave Storybrooke, bad things happened) or something, because it makes no sense that he hasn't tried to find her. Once Upon A Time he was in love with her. And even more recently, before he regained his memory and identity, his alter-ego Leroy was pretty sweet on Sister Astrid. I hope this is addressed at some point -- preferably with another Amy Acker guest-spot, but if they can't get her or don't have the time, then I hope it's addressed, even if she can't return. You know, maybe Blue sent her over the town line to do something, before the dwarfs experiment on Sneezy or something. My stuff. I'll continue.
