Alone in her office, Emma asks Sidney if he's found anything on Regina. He hasn't, but says he'll keep looking until he does. By the time Emma returns to Gold and Mary Margaret, Mary has decided she will talk to the D.A. She has nothing to hide. Just then, District Attorney Albert Spencer (played by Alan Dale, who is King George in the Enchanted Forest) enters and praises Mary's decision. Regina is with him, which should be all the clue-sticking Emma and Mary need, to wake up and smell the fetid stench wafting off this interview idea, but no.
In a supply/interview room, Gold and Mary sit on one side of the table. Spencer is across from them. Regina and Emma observe through a window. Mary's answers, at first, are soft, truthful, and reasonable, but because Spencer is Charles Fricking Widmore in another reality (or three), it doesn't take him long to twist Mary's words, hurl scathing accusations and work Mary Margaret into a complete tizzy. Gold plays at his role as counsel well enough and tries to end the interview, but Mary's composure, like Elvis, has left the building. She's soon shouting that of course she wanted Kathryn "gone." The D.A.'s satisfied smirk pales next to Regina's.
Enchanted Forest, Regina's Family Manor. Regina is admiring herself and her lovely blue riding coat, in the mirror. Cora finds her and tells her that her outfit just won't do and then magics her daughter into a beautiful pale blue gown. The king is paying them a visit, to thank Regina for saving Snow White's life. When Daddy Henry leads King Leopold to the women they curtsy. I just had a flashback to practicing curtsying, when I was a kid. No, it's nothing my mother made me do. I was just that kid, okay?
Leopold tells Regina that he should be bowing to her. There is no way to repay her for saving Snow's life. He says it's an honor to meet her and bows before her. Cora prompts Regina to respond that the honor is hers. Leopold tells Regina she is lucky to have a mother who looks out for her. Cora smiles at the compliment. While I was writing the recaplet, I was so blown away by Bailee Madison as young Snow that I failed to give Barbara Hershey's performance the attention it deserves. She is a perfect fit as Cora.
