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.
As Emma walks Henry to school, he tells her he has a plan to break Regina's curse. He calls it, "Operation Cobra." When Emma notes that has nothing to do with fairy tales, Henry says he knows. He just picked it to throw Queenie off their trail. They talk about how everyone there is a fairy tale character and how time was frozen 'til Emma arrived. When he sees she's about to bite into Regina's apple, he yells at her not to do that, grabs it, and throws it away. I already love this kid.
There's more exposition about how none of the Storybrooke residents remember their true, fairy tale identities. All they have is fuzzy memories of timeless time in Storybrooke. Emma is the only one who can break the curse because she's Snow and Charming's daughter. Henry tells her Regina doesn't know that, and takes out the missing pages from his Once Upon A Time book. It's the part with Emma in it. Henry: "I know the hero never believes at first. If they did, it wouldn't be a very good story. If you need proof, take them, read them. But whatever you do, don't let her see them. They're dangerous. If she finds out who you are... it would be bad." He leaves her in front of the school, saying, "I knew you believed me." Emma: "I never said I did." Henry: "Why else would you be here?" And with that, he's gone.
Mary Margaret Blanchard approaches Emma and tells her it's good to see Henry smile. When Emma asks what the Mayor's deal is, it's clear Mary's memory of town facts is obscured, as she just says Regina has been Mayor for as long as anyone can remember. She inspires fear and Mary is afraid she's only made matters worse by giving Henry the book, because now he thinks his mom is the Evil Queen. Emma: "Who does he think you are?" Mary laughs and says it's silly, but finally admits Henry thinks she is Snow White. Emma lies the she doesn't have a book counterpart, and then asks where she can find Henry's therapist.
