Mausoleum Mills: Regina holds up the heart before her.
Sheriff's Office: Graham: "I remember." Emma says, "You remember what?"
Mausoleum Mills: Regina is still holding up that heart.
Sheriff's Office: Graham takes Emma's face in his hands. "Thank you." He moves in to kiss her.
Mausoleum Mills: Regina starts to squeeze.
Sheriff's Office: Graham falls to the floor. Emma yells his name and falls on her knees next to him. She tries to shake him back to consciousness.
Mausoleum Mills: Regina squeezes until the heart disintegrates into dust and spills to the crypt floor. One tear is stalled, just under her left eye. And I have been meaning to mention this from the pilot, but you Lost fans all recognize the actress as one of the guards from the Looking Glass Station, right?
Sheriff's Office: Emma listens for breath sounds, shakes Graham and sobs his name. She doesn't perform CPR, which really cheeses off some of the people on the boards, but it's only been a minute or so, in her time, so I am cutting her some slack. We fade to black. I am still bereft and have nothing to add, except this. I gave Horowitz and Kitsis a hard time this week, but I did it, because they did their jobs. They made me feel. They made me care. They gave me something lovely and took it away. They hurt me. Episodes like this give me strong hope for the second part of this season, one-nighters and all. Bring on the pain, boys.
That's it for a few weeks, my pets. I hope you have a happy Hanukkah, a Merry Christmas, and/or anything else you celebrate, and a good New Year to you all. I'll catch you on the flip side. In the meantime, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then join us in the forum, if you can even talk about this Horowitzing Kitsis.
