Sidebar: So, Regina is simply insane. I mean, her mother is a horrible, evil, controlling, conniving witch, so it makes sense. But Regina knows that! She knows just how her mother is. She knows her mother played little motherless Snow White like a fiddle. She saw Cora rip out Daniel's heart and crush it into dust. And yet? She's got this eternal hatred for a well-meaning mistake made by a little girl who worshipped her. I hope no one expects me to find her sympathetic, from here on out. She's too crazy for that. Were her ire directed at her mother, I could be more understanding, but Regina is just a vengeful fool who doesn't even recognize the true target of her wrath.
Storybrooke. Regina stands by a window, clutching that little brass ring. With tears in her eyes she says, "We got her, Daniel. We got her."
Uniformed court bailiffs lead Mary Margaret out of her Storybrooke cell, as Emma looks on. She tries to talk to Mary, but Mary ignores her as she's led away. Alone with Gold, Emma gives him what for. He told her he could fix this so that Regina wouldn't win. Gold points out she hasn't won yet. When Emma says she's going to, and Mary's going to pay, Gold tells her that it's not over. She needs to have faith; there's still time for him to work a little magic. Emma wanders into her office and throws the vase across the room. It shatters to reveal the listening device Emma should have known was there all along.
Emma catches up with August outside Granny's and apologizes for doubting him. She shows him the bug, and explains it was from Sidney. She says she should have seen it. August tells her not to beat herself up. Sometimes it's hard to see what's right in front of us, but he can tell she's trying. They're interrupted by a scream from Ruby. They find her on the side of the building. She hyperventilates and says "she" is in the alley. Emma and August rush to the scene. There's a woman lying on the ground. Emma turns her over. It's a scared, confused, conscious Kathryn! Way to work that magic, Mr. Gold.
Well, we're off for a couple of weeks. Good Passover and Happy Easter to all who celebrate. 'Til next time, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then come on over to the forum, where everything is your mother's fault.
