Sheriff's Office. As David is hanging up his coat, Hook pops out of nowhere and whacks our Charming princely pauper right in what many fans would argue is his weak spot: his head. Once David is out cold, Hook grabs his keys, unlocks the desk drawer and retrieves his hook. No fussy evidence lockers in Storybrooke, no siree. We cut to...
Johanna's yard. When Snow finds Johanna in the garden, the older woman whispers, "Snow!" The Fairest unnecessarily corrects her. "It's Mary Margaret here," which makes Johanna's "You'll always be my dear Snow" even more predictable. The tearful women embrace. When talk turns to the tiara, Johanna explains that she saw it in Gold's shop and knew how much it meant to her. That's pretty darned sweet considering the kid was such a twit about it, Once Upon A Time.
Noticing Snow Drops blooming in a raised bed, Snow mentions she hasn't seen them in a long time. Johanna says, "They remind me of you because they can survive the harshest winter and you were born in the harshest one of all." As a tear rolls down her cheek, the Fairest says, "That's why she named me Snow." Johanna nods. She keeps the garden to honor Eva. Snow approves. As the women clasp hands, Johanna admits that she misses Eva, too. Their reunion is interrupted when they hear a noise in the adjacent forest. Excusing herself, Snow heads off to investigate.
A little way into the woods, Snow spies Cora and Regina discussing the map, their excavation site and the Dark One's Kris dagger. And although until this point Cora and Regina (once she huffed the grimoire) have shown no difficulty adapting to the ways in which magic differs in Storybrooke, these two ladies are manually digging up the site. Well, Cora is supervising. Regina is doing the dirty work, which is why she's wearing those digging shorts. Yes, digging shorts. Based on her admittedly kicky boots, I think we're to assume she's wearing a mini under her coat, but unless I'm seeing things, Regina is wearing digging shorts. If she was still even in the neighborhood of the Redemption Road, I'd assume this is some well-deserved penance but since Evil is looking for the dagger so that she and the Mother of All... can control the Dark One and make him kill off the Charmings, that can't be it. Regina, I hate to go all Fug Girls (I love them, but when I go to their well, I feel derivative, even for me) but LOOK INTO PANTS! If I ever again see you in digging shorts, I'm going to start calling you Reggie.
