Our World, Mayoral Manse, Exterior, Garden: There's the same little stone dwarf-gnome. Ahahaha. Well played, Show. Well played. Just then Sidney (also played by Giancarlo Esposito, i.e. the Magic Mirror) finds Regina picking apples from her prized tree. He holds up the local paper, Storybrooke Daily Mirror (ha), and says, "The Mirror strikes again." He's done a hatchet job on Emma Swan, but what Regina really wants in intel. There's not much intel to tell. Emma was a foster kid. She got in trouble as a kid, but since then she's been clean. She doesn't like to stay in one place. Oh and she had Henry while she was in Phoenix. Pay attention to that, because we're going to need it later. Think about the Phoenix of mythology, not just the city that would be America's oven, if only ovens were that hot. What does a phoenix do? It's a firebird that burns to death and is reborn from the ashes of its former self. Regina is dissatisfied. She tells Sydney that he's found her nothing of value, therefore he has no value to her, and she warns that when something is of no value to her, she throws it away. Sydney promises to do better.
Granny's Diner: Emma is reading the hatchet job on her, and is just about to bite into Regina's apple, when Ruby brings her a cup of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and cinnamon, and explains that it's from an admirer. Looking around, Emma assumes it's from the Sheriff. She approaches him and he teases her about crashing into the town sign last week. Emma is impressed that he guessed she likes cinnamon on her hot chocolate, but says she is not there to flirt. The Sheriff insists he didn't send it. Henry pops up from a corner booth. "I did. I like cinnamon, too." Because I'm your kid, dummy.
