Enchanted Present. Cora finds Hook on the same beach Mulan, Aurora, Emma and Snow crossed on their way to the "Haven." Cora greets him, and Hook says, "You told me you had something important you need to show me." Cora produces the beaker full of enchanted wardrobe ash. Inside, the magiconium glows pink, purple and gold, like magiconium is wont to do. Hook: "Sparkly dirt. Wonderful." Cora explains it's the remains of a magical wardrobe that can travel between worlds. Hook wants to know if there's enough to get them where they need to go. Cora smiles. "Not quite, but it's a start." Hook says they're almost ready to set sail, and asks their destination. Cora: "Storybrooke." Hook: "Curious name. Is that where..." Cora finishes: "...She is. And so is he." Hook says, "Excellent. You'll be able to see your daughter, and I can skin myself a crocodile." The two smolder at each other and we cut to the title card.
I missed Emma and Snow this week, which I discuss at length in the recaplet (linked at the top of page 1, if you want to take a look). I'm fresh out of time, so I'll be back Monday morning with coverage of "The Doctor," which promises to be a whale of a tale. I hope to see you, then. In the meantime, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then come on over to the forum, where we're eagerly polishing our swords and buckling our swash.
