Once Upon a Time Episode Scripts

In the Name of the Brother

Previously on "Once Upon A Time" If you want Ashley to have that baby, - you'll owe me a favor.
- Deal.
There's a whole world full of people that don't know who or what we are.
What if they see the girl turning into a wolf, for example? When I pour this potion onto the object I hold most dear, that object becomes a talisman.
It allows me to cross the town line and still remember who I am.
Now you can find your son.
Belle! Who's Belle? Who are you? What's going on? Beautiful Belle.
- Let me - - Aah! - Shh.
Shh.
Shh.
- Aah! No, no.
L let me.
Let me.
There.
All better.
Good.
- How did you do that? - It's nothing to be afraid of.
- Get away.
- - Shh.
- Belle, please.
- What are you?! Are you okay? I'm at the town line.
Two people down, maybe three.
There's a car, pretty banged up with Pennsylvania plates.
- What's going on? - She crossed over the line.
She doesn't remember.
Hey, beautiful.
Here, I didn't think you'd notice.
Aah! I think your ribs are broken.
Oh, that must be why it hurts when I laugh.
Did you see his face? His one true love, gone in an instant! Just like Milah, Crocodile When you took her from me.
- But you took her first.
- Aah! Gold, are you insane?! Yes, I am! You can't do that! I can if you let me go.
You don't want her to see that.
I'm a stranger to her.
Murder is a bad first impression.
What would Belle want you to do? Over here! No! Him! Take care of him.
He can wait.
What? - There's someone in there.
- Stay.
I'll be right back.
Do you know this guy? I've never seen him before.
That's because he drove into town.
From the outside? Looks like the world just came to Storybrooke.

To the Frankensteins.
To a fine new year, papa.
Thank you, Gerhardt.
And let's have a better look at that medal.
My son.
The Silver Cross.
It's embarrassing to have everyone make such a fuss.
Well, that's your cross to bear, I suppose.
To the holiday.
Something for both of my sons.
Oh.
Too small to be a pony.
Your mother gave me that when we were married.
It was her father's.
She wanted to keep it in the family.
- I remember.
- Open yours, Victor.
A commission.
Father, surely you're joking.
My work is far too important to leave now.
I purchased you a commission.
You will join the Mobile 34th as their camp physician.
It's an honor.
Well, yes, of course, but I'm not sure you realize the important scientific work he's doing.
Certainly, but how will he do his work without my financial support? Papa, I rely on that money.
I've already allowed you the use of our summer home for your foolish purposes.
Isn't that enough? I have made great progress! The name Frankenstein is going to stand for life! Life everlasting here on earth.
Dr.
Whale, please report to the E.
R.
I don't know what's going on.
Car versus pedestrian.
Chest trauma from the wheel.
Pedestrian's got contusions, broken ribs.
Go to X-ray.
Pedestrian first.
- Hide him.
- What? Find a room and hide him.
- Belle, what's going on? - Get him out of here! - No, what's happening? Belle! - - I'd like to know that myself.
Belle! Belle! Everybody, calm down.
Mr.
Gold.
Everything will be fine.
She's in good hands here.
I promise.
Victor.
Victor, wait.
He'll cool off.
Here.
Take this.
You're the eldest.
She wanted it for you.
No.
Keep it.
Don't worry about me.
I'll find another way.
- Aah! - No, no, no, no, no.
- Aah! - No, no, no, no, no.
- Aah! - I I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- - You okay? I'm sorry.
Where's Cora? What? Again? You're really into this, aren't you? Damn, that hurts.
Told you.
You cracked a few ribs.
Where's Cora? You look good, I must say, all "where's Cora?" in a commanding voice.
Chills.
You have all sorts of sore places.
I can make you hurt.
Uhh! I have no idea where Cora is.
She has her own agenda.
Let's talk about something I am interested in my hook.
May I have it back? Or is there another attachment you'd prefer? You're awfully chipper for a guy who just failed to kill his enemy, then got hit by a car.
Well, my ribs may be broken, but everything else is still intact, which is more than can be said for other bad days I've had.
Plus I did some quality damage to my foe.
You hurt Belle.
I hurt his heart.
Belle's just where he keeps it.
He killed my love.
I know the feeling.
Keep smilin', buddy.
You're chained down.
He's on his feet, immortal, has magic, and you hurt his girl.
If I were to pick dead guy of the year? I'd pick you.
Ah.
We've gotta get into his phone.
Let me guess another pass code.
You can't guess.
There are a million possible combinations.
- 10,000.
- 10,000.
Leroy, can you get it open or something? Hack it? Well, you do understand that computer hacking and pickax hacking are different.
Here, let me try.
I have a thing.
And we do know something.
There was stuff in his car rental agreement, maps, receipts.
His name is Greg Mendell.
Now let's see pictures of him alone at a bunch of Eastern seaboard tourist locations a LinkedIn account and he tweets pictures of his food.
I'll keep looking, but I think what we have here is a well-documented real-life ordinary Joe.
Or Greg.
So whatever's kept random people from stumbling into Storybrooke for the last 28 years - It's gone.
- Anyone could drive in.
Why are my instincts telling me that's a bad thing? 'Cause you've seen "E.
T.
" or "Splash" or any other movie where they find something magical and study it to death.
- Think what'd they do to a werewolf.
- Oh, and his friends and family? - They're going to come looking for him soon.
- Let's try not to overreact.
Leroy's right.
We don't need outsiders here.
Hook says he doesn't know where Cora is, and God knows what she's gonna do.
With other people coming here, that's not gonna be good for anyone.
We need to find Regina, tell her we know she was framed.
I've been tracking her.
No luck.
She's gone underground.
But what if Cora finds her first? I don't want to think about the damage those two would do together.
This could not have come at a worse time.
It's okay.
The guy's being patched up right now.
- He'll probably be on his way home by morning.
- Not quite.
He's bleeding into his chest cavity.
It's not a full flood, you know, but pretty soon he'll be drowning in his own blood.
So make it stop.
Aren't you a doctor? Gold.
You fixed me.
Now fix him.
It will take you seconds and cost you nothing.
No.
No? Just no? I owe you nothing, Whale.
I owe none of you anything, and some of you owe me.
So, yeah, just no.
Oh, and point of interest the driver? He saw me throwing some magic.
So instead of trying to get him out of here, you better be hoping he dies, because if he doesn't, he's gonna be driving tour buses up and down main street.
So glad I don't give a damn.
Look letting him die is easy.
I can do that, if that's what you decide.
Let's take this somewhere private.
It's not really murder if we let him succumb to his injuries.
I'm pretty sure it is.
Of course we save him.
- Obviously.
- Well - Leroy! - We gotta think it through.
If we save him and kill the whole town, is that really better? So we have to choose between our lives and his.
- We can worry about the town later.
- Which doesn't mean we should abandon him.
I know, but let's worry about Storybrooke after we save a life.
Dr.
Whale, prep for surgery.
Anyone else notice he's drunk off his ass? Someone's looking for Greg.
How long before they come here? Good evening, doctor.
How did you get in here? Who are you? Stiltskin.
Rumple Von Stiltskin.
A foreigner.
What tipped you off? My rosy complexion? Yes, I've seen nothing of your drab little land yet, but I am interested in your work.
Well, you're a little late.
I've been shut down.
And I can't bring back dead loved ones, anyway, if that's what you're after.
I think my deceased are best kept where they are, dearie, thank you very much.
No, no, no.
Um my interest is in how you do whatcha do.
You see, where I come from, we do things differently.
Your land has witchcraft, but it's feeble, neglected stuff.
Where I live, it's strong and hearty.
But it cannot restore life.
If you can do this, well I'll want to know more, and I'm willing to pay.
How did you do that? You're missing the point.
Money.
Yours.
Are you a philanthropist? Well, I've been called worse.
There is a cost to you knowledge.
You teach me to wield whatever it is you wield.
That is the deal.
Then it's a deal.
- I thought you were bringing - Igor, tremendous news! This is Rump oh.
Master what's happened? Bring back the equipment.
We're staying, and we're going to need a body.
Hello, Rumple.
Well, I expected this was just a matter of time.
Had hoped you were dead, but hey disappointment's just part of life.
I'm sure we can agree on that.
Aw, the crocodile snaps at the little bird.
And after I brought you a gift.
Yeah, did you bring the antidote, too? Oh, Rumple.
It's a peace offering.
And what do you want for this, uh this "peace offering"? My daughter.
You were so clever to get her to lay the curse so you could come here.
You don't need her anymore.
Let me try to get her back and let us live.
And what do I get for my troubles? Your son.
You know what that is, of course.
It'll find him if this one truly is it.
Oh, darling, I have no reason to cheat you.
Anymore.
I want you to find the one person in this universe who might still love you.
After all, I'm doing the same thing.
Do you have any spells to return memories? I only know what you taught me master.
So will you accept my offer of a truce? Truce.
Let's seal it like we used to.
Treatment care coordinator, dial the I.
C.
U.
nurses' station.
Treatment care coordinator, dial the I.
C.
U.
nurses' station.
What's that? Oh.
It's just the guy's personal effects.
I get the best watches this way.
Joking.
- As far as you know.
- It's too bad it's cracked.
I thought you'd be scrubbing in by now.
Yeah.
Yeah, I'm gonna do that.
Arm okay? I'm not drunk.
Okay, just let's save this guy, all right? I don't care what he saw.
We don't let go of people.
Right.
Of course not.
Gerhardt.
Igor told me that I'd find you here.
I can't believe I thought you worked with cells in Petri dishes.
My work has progressed.
And I thought you supported me.
Not like this.
- Halt! - - Don't shoot! We have orders! He's in uniform.
Come.
Yeah.
Go! Go! You shouldn't have come looking for me.
And I thought you supported me.
Gerhardt.
Gerhardt? Same person again.
- "Her.
" Cute.
- Probably a girlfriend.
We could answer it, just let her know he's okay.
He's not okay.
He's alive.
We could let her know he's alive.
Nah.
The police could trace it here instantly.
She can activate the "find your phone thing" without us picking it up at all.
That settles that.
Ohh, my nerves can't take this.
Is the surgery almost over? I I think it takes W w whoa.
Wait.
Wait.
Any news? No.
I was just looking for the doctor.
He's not in the O.
R.
? - He never came in.
- Then page him.
He was not looking so good earlier.
He's here.
No, but his pager is.
He's gone.
- Got the scent? - Boozy.
Just find him and bring him back.
We'll watch Hook and figure out options if Whale doesn't come back.
Maybe doc can do it.
Surgery? No.
Maybe he didn't even run.
Maybe Cora grabbed him for some reason.
I don't think so.
He's been in a rough place since he brought Regina's fiance back to life.
Daniel? Back to life?! - And had his arm ripped off and put back on.
- Cool.
Wait.
Daniel came back? Like some kind of Frankenstein? That's Whale.
The doctor.
And Daniel was his What went on here while we were gone? Ruby, get going.
Bring back Dr.
Frankenstein.
We're gonna send this guy back home with bolts in his neck.
She'll find him.
Yeah, but what kind of state is he gonna be in? I will bring you back, my brother, I promise.
It's burned like coal.
Cover him.
The sheet will serve as his shroud.
Of course, doctor.
Victor? Father.
You were seen carrying a body into this house.
Explain yourself.
Gerhardt? My boy.
My dear son.
What did you do?! It was an accident.
- I was working.
- You caused this! The things you do You cut into your brother! - No, no, it wasn't like that! - You put your foul magician's work into your brother! It can work! I did this for you, too, father.
I wanted you to have two sons again.
And now I have none.
Mom? Hello? Hello? Hello? Mom? You in there? Can I come in? Mom? Mom? Mom? Oh! Henry, I'm so glad you're here.
I missed you so much when I have to let you know I had nothing to do with Archie.
I know.
I always knew.
I was framed.
I don't know how.
I it just seems like everything You knew? How did you know? Simple.
Because I did it.
Mother.
Did it work? No? There was a little problem with what the heart could withstand.
Ah! Problems of the heart.
Isn't that always the way? Could you get out of my light, please? You know, where I come from, there are hearts that can withstand anything because of magic.
You have hearts? I'll tell you what.
I'm gonna bring you a friend, a master of the hat.
He shall take you to a young woman who has exactly what you need.
You put on a little show for her, and then you walk away with all your prayers answered.
A heart for your brother.
And who is this woman? Her name is Regina.
You I thought we stopped you.
How did you get through? Determination.
I had to see you.
I needed to tell you that I know why you sent me through the looking glass.
And I know why you tried to have me killed.
And it's it's all right.
I think it's not all right.
I love you.
I just I've always shown it in all the wrong ways.
And I never should have made you marry the king.
I'm so sorry.
When you cried over my coffin, it it all changed.
You framed me for the cricket.
Temporarily, so you could see what these people really think of you.
You made an airtight case.
Anyone would believe it.
I didn't want you to reject me.
Not again.
You wanted me broken.
Receptive.
You are the most manipulative No.
I won't even argue.
Come with me.
We're going to town.
It's the middle of the night.
I don't care.
We'll wake them up Emma and Henry and the two idiots, and you can tell them how you lied.
You owe me that.
And then you'll let us start over? I don't see that happening, mother.
But I am I was trying so hard to be worthy of Henry.
And I deserve the same thing from you.
You're right.
For you, sweetheart.
Anything.
Dr.
Whale?! Don't come near me! Rumplestiltskin was right.
The new heart worked.
Welcome back, brother.
It's magic, Dr.
Frankenstein.
No.
Not magic.
Science.
I'm telling you, it's true.
I brought him back.
Victor if you have really given me this We've kept him waiting long enough.
He's still recovering.
It's a slow process, so don't expect him to You did it.
I did it.
It's really you.
Let me see you, my son.
Mm.
What? What is it? Is he all right? Why doesn't he speak? Ow! I told you, father, it's an adjustment.
I believed you.
The terrible thing is, for a moment, I believed you did it.
He's a monster! What a fool I was! That's not my son! - You are not my son.
- You're a ghoul and a grave robber.
A fool and a witch doctor.
You're a disgrace to this family.
Oh! Aah! Ohh! Enough.
Gerhardt.
Enough.
You have killed our father.
I wanted my name to stand for life.
But everybody just thinks it's the name of a monster.
I guess they're right about that.
Rumplestiltskin says that magic has a price, but from where I'm sitting, seems that science does, too.
Every time I try to save a life, someone else dies.
Hey.
Yeah.
Look, you're Frankenstein, and I'm the werewolf.
I ate my boyfriend.
Regina thought she was punishing us by erasing who we were.
But I think she underestimated how much crap we wanted to forget.
Yeah.
But we can't let it stop us.
She gave us a chance to start over, and I wanna take it.
I think you should, too.
I wasn't such a bad guy, you know.
I wanted to bring life back.
But he never got over our mother.
If I could've just brought her back That guy in the hospital someone keeps calling for him.
Maybe a wife, a mother.
Maybe there's still some stuff you can fix.
Nervous? Not about owning up to what I've done.
It's just these carriages are strange.
And something's irritating me.
Ah.
Oh.
"For mommy.
" Oh, that used to be you.
When were you in my house? I haven't had the pleasure.
That was in my house.
Think I don't know where that was? It's one of my most treasured possessions.
Well, let's be honest.
Taking me to be pilloried by the town might gain you some points, but as long as Emma and her parents are here, he's not really yours.
Not like he was when he made things for his one and only mommy.
You've been too bad for too long, and now they see you as a a snake.
You don't want their love at all.
What do you want? My son back.
And I want my daughter back.
I meant everything I said earlier.
I am so sorry.
I can do better.
I won't push you away again.
Let me into your heart.
Together, we can get him back again.
How? Oh, I have a few thoughts.
- You're back.
- Finally.
I don't know why everyone's so worried.
I was just stretching my legs.
Now I'm gonna go do this thing.
Gerhardt? My brother? I was trying to bring you back.
Are you here? Gerhardt? Gerhardt? Vic tor? Yes.
Yes, it's me.
No.
I won't do it.
I will still save you.
Father is wrong.
I will find a way.
Where are they? Getting coffee from the machine.
What's the verdict? He'll live.
You did it? Thank you.
Monster to monster.
You did it! Ha! He's gonna make it? He's got some recuperating ahead of him a few weeks maybe, but yes.
He's going to live.
- Thank goodness.
- Or me.
Telling you right now, this will come to no good.
- Quiet, Leroy.
- I wanna talk to him.
- He's waking up now.
- Already? I waited a couple of hours to tell you in case he, you know, keeled over, but so far, so good.
- All right, then.
- Well, let's talk to him.
We're not talking to him as a group.
We're not a group-sheriff.
But we've been doing this together.
We're trying to convince this guy this place is normal.
In a normal town, the sheriff goes in and asks a few questions.
She doesn't bring her parents in with her.
That's probably true.
We'll be right here, then.
I know you don't remember, but just indulge me.
Please.
Be careful with it.
It's a it's a cup.
Yeah.
It's it's damaged.
Just look at it.
Focus.
It's your talisman.
It's a cup.
You dropped it in my castle.
You were afraid that you had angered me.
Here.
You you need to go and take your cup, okay? No, no, no, no.
I I charmed it.
If you focus, it will work.
It's magic.
Okay, just go away.
S stop talking about magic and take your cup.
Just look at it.
Just go just go away.
I'm sorry.
Nurse? Sheriff Swann, actually.
I'm thirsty.
Here.
I have your personal effects.
I'm just gonna put them here, okay? So, Mr.
Mendell, I wanted to talk to you about the accident.
Did I hit somebody? Oh, my God.
I hit someone.
Is he okay? Don't worry about him.
I mean, the the damage was pretty minor.
Oh, thank God.
But I do need you to state what happened in your own words what you did, what you saw.
Well, I I didn't see anything.
I Well, you were driving.
Yeah, but I saw the road, of course I just think I might be able to put your mind at ease.
There might be an explanation if you saw I was texting.
Oh.
I looked down, just for a second.
And when I looked back up, he was he was right there.
And he was too close to avoid, but I I know that it's not legal in Maine.
It's okay.
I'm just glad that you were honest with me.
So no charges? No.
No charges.
I will let you go with a warning this time.
Thank you.
So when when can I head home? As soon as the doctor clears you.
We don't wanna keep you.
He didn't see nothin'? Free and clear.
Oh, good.
Now maybe things can calm down for ten minutes and we can catch our breath.
Bae.
You were out all night.
Where were you? Granny wouldn't tell me anything.
Did I miss it all? - Cereal okay? - Yeah.
Rumplestiltskin and Captain Hook had a fight, and someone got hurt.
We weren't sure if Dr.
Frankenstein - could fix him, but he did.
- Doctor? Oh.
That's who Whale is.
Yeah, but without the neck bolts.
The monster had the bolts, not the doctor.
Right, but either way, some of us having known him it's weird.
It's not weird.
We're past it.
We were cursed.
- What are you talking about? - Nothing.
Wait.
Really, it's nothing.
Ah-ah! Frankenstein isn't in here.
It's not even a fairy tale.
That means it comes from another land with different stories.
Eat.
I really wanna go to bed.
If the curse went to places with other stories, then who knows who else is in this town? Gold.
We've all had a long night.
You remember that favor you owe me, Miss Swan? Yeah.
I'm cashing it in.
It's not a good You do honor your agreements, don't you? I need to find someone, so we're leaving today.
Pack your bag.
Leaving? Well, where? Wait.
Find someone? Who? My son.
It has to be today because every minute I'm here, is a minute closer to me killing Hook.
So it's really best for all concerned if I leave, and you're gonna come with me.
Oh, and, um, we have a long history, so know this and know it to be true.
If any harm comes to Belle while I'm gone, I'm killing all of you.
I'll see you at noon.
Honey? I I I know.
Just wait.
Wait.
Just listen.
Just listen.
Okay? Yes, I'm okay.
I I was in an accident.
And, honey you're not gonna believe what I saw.
