Meanwhile, August gets on his motorcycle and sets off for parts unknown. Mr. Gold, waiting in his land boat of a car, follows him.
Fairy Tale Land. Boys play at sword fighting with sticks. The surrounding forest is so green and lush that I expect creepy little Ewoks to start popping up. Rumplestiltskin and Bae walk by. Rumpy encourages his son to go play. "I have some business nearby that would bore you," he says. Bae is all too happy to join the other boys, but they get one look at him and scatter in fear. Rumpy walks toward a hut in the woods while Bae, forlorn, sits by a stream. He's soon joined by Morraine. "Careful, you don't want to be seen with me," he grumps. "I'm dangerous." She says she's not worried. She knows he wouldn't let his father hurt her. If I had a crushed snail for every time I heard that... They talk a little bit about Rumpy stopping the war, which has earned him a lot of credit with Morraine. Bae tells her about wanting to find a way to help his father change back. Morraine thinks for a bit and then says, "Reul Ghorm!" She heard about it from the other soldiers in the trenches. "Reul Ghorm is an ancient being that rules the night -- the original power," she says. Bae gets his hopes up. "Bigger than Papa? Worse than Papa?" he asks. "Bigger than anything," she says.
She leaves as Rumplestiltskin returns. Rumpy doesn't understand why everyone's so afraid of him. That's when Bae looks down and notices something. "You have stains on your boots," he says. They're streaked with red. Rumpy looks a bit sheepish. "Ah, yes, that... We need a new maid!" Bae is horrified to realize his father has killed Onora. Rumpy explains she heard them talking about the knife. Bae is even more horrified. "She was mute! She couldn't have told anyone!" Rumpy shrugs that off. "Even mutes can draw a picture," he says.
Storybrooke. Convent. Mr. Gold watches from a distance as August talks with Mother Superior. Their conversation is muffled, but it sounds like she tells him not to do anything rash. After August leaves, Gold approaches his least favorite nun. She's got a decent amount of eye shadow for a nun. Gold asks her about August. When she's less than forthcoming, he threatens to double her rent. She finally tells him that August told her he'd come to town looking for his father and that he'd found him. He wanted her advice. Mr. Gold tries to make his face all casual and mostly succeeds. Then she tells him that August hasn't yet talked with his father because they parted on bad terms. Mr. Gold looks a little gut-punched and doesn't really try to hide it.
