Cut to Kathryn. She smiles as she starts to drive off. Back in her office, Regina sets fire to the letter. Kathryn approaches the town line. The letter burns; Regina tosses it in the fireplace. Frederick drives down the road. He finds Kathryn's car at the town line. The air bag has deployed but the car is empty. Frederick looks around. Letter burns. We close on Regina's face.
I realize I've gone on just about long enough, but I'm trying to remember something. Didn't we see that scene with Charming and Red, before? But wasn't it different? Why can't I remember? Wait. I have TiVo and recaps. Let me check. Ah, yes, it was at the end of "7:15 AM," which the lovely Lulu Bates covered for me. That's why it's not so clear in my mind. Here. Let's let revisit the first version of the Charming-finds-Red scene.
Lulu Bates Recap: Prince James rides through the fields shouting for Snow White. Red Riding Hood comes out of the woods where she loiters indefinitely on the off chance a prince needs a message delivered. She tells him that Snow never came back after her trip to the castle. Prince James loudly declares, "Then I will find her! I will always find her." And Red smiles and pats him on the hand because she knows a thing or two.
The story is changing, my friends. I suspect that August knows it. He may have caused it, or at least it seems he has restored magic to Henry's book. When Henry lost the book, he made copious notes of everything he could remember about it. He'll be sure to notice the changes, right?
Henry: I hope so because that means more screen time, for me!
Recapper: Say goodnight to the nice people.
Henry: Goodnight, nice people! Goodnight other people who are more like Regina, in that you don't love me, which means you have a sucking hole where your heart should be! Goodnight moon!
Recapper: Okay, kiddo, that's enough.
