Once Upon a Time s03e02 Episode Script

Lost Girl

Previously on "Once Upon a Time" Things we haven't thought about in years still have the ability to make us cry.
If you're here for the boy, you will not survive.
The question is how many of you I take with me.
Uhh! Uhh! You know what to do.
Hide it where no one can find it, not even me.
Once Upon a Time 3x02 - Lost Girl Original air date October 6, 2013 The ridge is just a few hundred paces up ahead.
You really think we're gonna be able to see Pan's hideout? From there, we should be able to see everything, including where he's keeping your son.
You know, I could have just poof ed us up here in an instant.
Where? Have you any idea what's up here or anywhere? There are dangers all about.
Only I can guide us past them.
He's right.
Hook's lived here before.
If he says hiking up is the best way, then we listen.
Here.
You need to stay hydrated.
Thanks, Mary Margaret.
You know, "Mary Margaret" is a bit formal.
You could call me "mom" if you want.
You've done it before.
That was back when we we were about to die.
Oh, no, I get it.
No.
No! I can handle a couple of thorns.
That's dreamshade.
It's not the thorns you have to worry about.
It's the poison they inject you with.
This plant is the source of the toxins I used on The Dark One.
The poison that almost killed Gold? Indeed.
I used a concentrated dose.
In its natural form, death would be much slower and far more painful.
I suggest we go this way.
We'll go this way.
Your father's a distrustful fellow.
He's just not used to working with the bad guys.
I can assure you, on this island, I am not the bad guy.
Yeah, well, Pan's not supposed to be one either.
What possibly gave you that idea? Every story I ever heard as a child.
Well, they got it all wrong.
Pan is the most treacherous villain I've ever faced.
Tell me something, luv.
In these stories what was I like? Other than a villain.
Handsome, I gather.
If waxed moustaches and perms are your thing.
I take it by your tone, perms are bad? Up here! We made it.
Pan's lair should be just right Where? All I see is jungle.
Aye.
The Dark Jungle.
It's, uh, grown so much since I last stepped foot in Neverland.
So this nature hike was for nothing.
Hook may have led us astray, but at least we're in a good position - to start combing the jungle.
- Not exactly.
The Dark Jungle's the last place you wanna set foot.
We'll have to go around it.
In order to do that, we're gonna need our strength.
I suggest we make camp.
You wanna sleep while my son is out there suffering? If we want to live long enough to save the boy Yes.
You okay? Regina's right.
Henry's out there somewhere.
And Hook is right.
We have to survive if we're going to get him.
I know.
I just hope we're not too late.
After everything your father and I have been through, there's one thing we've learned.
It is never too late.
No.
No! Open it.
Careful! If you drop me, I'll make sure you have Your Majesty? I told you never to disturb me out here.
Trust me.
I haven't disturbed you yet.
Just wait until you see this.
- He woke her? - Indeed.
True love's kiss apparently can break any curse.
Will you marry me? What do you think? That will be one hell of a wedding.
There won't be a dry eye in the entire realm.
Quiet.
Let's take back the kingdom.
We'll see about that.
The Evil Queen murdered my father, put me under a sleeping curse, but I am not the only one she has made to suffer.
Yeah.
She's terrorized us for far too long.
- Yeah! - This kingdom doesn't belong to her.
It belongs to us! Yeah! So who is ready to stand beside me and fight for what's rightfully ours?! Quite the courageous army you're building.
They may be afraid of you, but we are not.
Why? Because you and the Shepherd broke my sleeping curse? Uhh! Lucky for you, I didn't come here to fight.
I came to offer you a deal.
Consider it an engagement present.
Snow, don't listen to a single word uhh! Are you really gonna marry that? What do you want? I want you to give up your claim to the throne.
If you declare me the rightful ruler of this land, I will let you, the dwarfs, and your so-called prince escape back to the sheep farm he once called home.
Exile? Well, I've tried to kill you.
I've tried to curse you, and none of it's worked.
But then I realized I was going about it all wrong.
You need to be alive.
You need to be awake.
So you can spend all your days knowing that I have taken everything that was supposed to be yours.
Now get down on your knees and swear on your father's grave that this kingdom belongs to me.
And if I don't? Well, then someone will pay the price.
Stop! - Is she okay? - Yeah.
Next time, she won't be.
You have until sundown tomorrow to give up the throne.
And for every day that you defy me, I will kill one of your loyal subjects.
Stop denying who you are Snow White.
You may have been a princess, but you will never be a queen.
Guys, wake up! You hear that, too? You're Emma, right? I wonder why they can't hear the crying.
Who are you? Oh, did I forget to introduce myself? I'm Peter.
Peter Pan.
Where's Henry? You've got fire.
I like fire.
Where's my son? Henry's still alive, if that's what you're worried about.
Why the hell did you take him? He's a very special boy, Emma.
I know.
That doesn't answer my question.
What do you want with him? I came here to see who I was up against "The Savior.
" Gotta say, I'm not disappointed.
What do you say now? You're gonna tell me how I'm never gonna see Henry again? No.
I'm going to help you find him.
I'll give you a map.
A map that will lead you straight to your son.
If this is some kind of trap I may not be the most well-behaved boy on the island, but I always keep my promises.
The path to finding Henry is on this parchment.
Why are you giving it to me? See, it's not about finding Henry.
It's about how you find him.
And, Emma you are the only one who can.
It's blank.
You'll only be able to read that map when you stop denying who you really are.
He so likes his games.
What game? There's nothing there.
If he said there's a map on this parchment, then there is.
Great.
So if I just stop denying who I really am, whatever that means, then we'll be able to read this thing.
But how do we know Pan won't use it to lead us straight into a trap? Because he doesn't need to.
This whole island's his bloody trap.
There's no sign of him anywhere.
Any luck with the map? - Don't hold your breath.
- What's that supposed to mean? Don't you see what he's doing? Every second we spend talking about this is another second we're not looking for my son.
You got a better idea? Magic.
If there's a lock on there, I'll find a way around it.
Pan said it had to be me.
I'd listen to Emma, luv.
Breaking Pan's rules would be unwise.
Sadly, I agree with the pirate.
I'm winning you over.
I can feel it.
And your magic doesn't exactly have a gentle touch, Regina.
Use it on the map, it might blow up in all our faces.
Well, that's a risk I'm willing to take.
Well, I'm not.
If I'm the one who's supposed to figure out this thing, I need to do what Pan said.
Great.
She'll get there.
Hey.
Don't give up.
He's playing a game.
You can win.
We can't win.
We have to leave the kingdom.
How can you even consider giving in to that witch? When you're gone, do you think she's suddenly gonna stop menacing this land? And who will protect the people then? Did I protect them today? I couldn't even help that poor girl.
And don't kid yourself.
She isn't gonna stop with the peasants.
She's going to come after the people who are closest to me.
I will stand by your side no matter what.
Even if it means our death.
Which it probably will.
You can't let her get into your head.
She has a point.
I'm no queen.
I'm no leader.
I'm just a girl who lost her parents, ran away into the woods, and became a bandit.
- You're Snow White.
- Yes.
And the truth is, I don't even know who that is.
But I know what I don't wanna be, and that's alone.
That's never gonna happen.
You're right.
If we take her offer, we can all live together in exile, but at least we'll be alive.
We should leave tomorrow.
- Snow! - Let her go.
This is her kingdom.
We can't just let her walk away from it.
- Why do you suddenly care so much about saving Snow's kingdom? - What do you mean? Well, if you have true love, what difference does it make whether you live in a castle or on a farm? Wait.
You think I'm in this for her crown? You said it, not me.
Okay.
Okay, I get it.
I'm new.
But trust me.
I want what's best for Snow.
Look, handsome, she may love you, but that chiseled chin ain't foolin' us.
We got our eyes on you.
Are you dwarfs with me or against me? I think Grumpy was pretty clear.
Sorry, brother.
Snow's already made up her mind, so if you're looking to change it, you gotta do it without our help.
Then I'll find another way.
You again? Didn't I just help you wake your princess? Now I need your help once more.
Long ago you made Snow remember who she was when a spell blinded her.
I need you to do it again.
Who's there? Show yourself.
That doesn't belong to you, dearie.
Belle.
Belle.
I don't understand.
How did you get here? I thought you didn't dress like that anymore.
I thought that was your past.
Well, this is now my future.
Becoming this again The Dark One that's the only way I'll save my grandson.
But you haven't completely become him, have you? There's still hope.
Ahh.
You're not really here, are you? No, of course not.
I'm still in Storybrooke, right where you left me.
Are you okay? Did the protection spell work? It it did.
We're all fine.
Storybrooke's safe.
We all are.
How do I know these aren't just lies meant to lead me astray? How do I know Pan didn't conjure up a vision of you? He didn't.
You did.
What? The question is why.
You must have something that can change Snow's mind.
If she doesn't wanna fight the Queen, there's nothing I can do to change that.
I just need a way to make her believe in something that I already know that she can face Regina and win.
Magic can't make someone believe, dearie.
It works the other way around.
Belief must come from within.
You know, the Queen's offer was a fair one.
Do yourself a favor and take it.
Ruling a kingdom ain't all it's cracked up to be.
Just ask your dear old brother.
Oh, wait.
He died.
You see my point.
No.
I didn't come here to take "no" for an answer.
Now you must have something.
You always do.
Just name your price.
Save those arrows for the Queen.
I told you.
I've already made up my mind.
We're leaving.
Not when you hear what Rumplestiltskin had to say.
You more than anyone know that his deals always come with a price.
And sometimes that price is worth paying.
Without his help, you'd still be in that glass coffin.
What did he say this time? He told me of a legend a magical weapon, one that can help you reclaim your kingdom.
Unless he can guarantee more lives won't be lost, I'm not interested.
Weapon's only a half day's ride from here.
We can be there before sundown.
This weapon you say it will help me defeat Regina.
How? By showing her who you really are.
My name is Emma Swan.
I'd wager the solution to Pan's riddle is a bit more complicated than that.
Don't hold anything back.
I'm Henry's mother.
I used to live in Boston, and I was a bailbondsperson.
I'm now the sheriff of Storybrooke.
That election was a sham.
Are we really doing this? Don't you think maybe you're You're leaving some things out? I'm the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, which apparently makes me the product of true love.
I was born in the Enchanted Forest and I was sent through a portal in a tree so that I could break a curse.
And you were able to curse because You're the Come on.
You don't need to be embarrassed to say it.
Say what? The "s" word.
I'm The Savior.
I don't get it.
I said I'm the Savior.
There's nothing I've denied more than that.
No, it's okay.
We'll figure it out.
No, you won't.
- Regina! - But I can.
I'm beginning to think there isn't a map on here.
That doesn't mean it can't lead us to Henry.
I thought we decided that using magic was a bad idea.
For once I agree with the prince.
Well, I told you we're getting along.
What the hell are you doing? The locator spell.
This parchment belonged to Pan.
It'll lead us to him.
So it appears we will be venturing into the Dark Jungle after all.
You mean the place you told us never to set foot? That's the one.
Well, Emma, you said you wanted to be the leader.
Lead.
So do you know why you brought me to the island? I thought you were gonna show me the answer.
No, only you know that.
I've already told you.
- No, you haven't.
- I have no idea.
- Yes, you do.
- No.
- You are holding back.
- I'm not.
- You are.
- Belle.
What is it you're not saying? I'm a coward.
I'm just like my father.
You feel better now, don't you? You know why I'm here.
You always saw the good in me.
I still do.
And as much as you deny it, I think you see it, too.
So why am I here? What are you wrestling with? Pan offered me a deal.
I let him keep Henry, and he allows me to live.
The boy needn't be my undoing.
And you're afraid you'll make a selfish choice.
I generally do.
You abandoned your son Baelfire and regretted it your whole life.
You don't need to do the same to Henry.
Letting go of the past it's the first step.
You know, this was the last thing my father gave me.
And what happened to him? He left me.
If you don't want to repeat the mistakes he made, you need to let go.
Ready to thank me? Actually, yeah.
If you'd let me do it sooner, maybe we'd have found him by now.
Wait.
He's there.
Pan.
I can feel his smugness.
Shall we? While we still have the element of surprise on our side? Careful.
He may look like a boy, but he's a bloody demon.
Hey.
We can do this.
You can do this.
We're nearly there.
We should take the rest of the way on foot.
You realize, this is the first time we've been alone since you proposed? Well, privacy is a hard thing to come by when you have seven big brothers keeping an eye on you.
They're protective.
That's one word for it.
Have the dwarfs been giving you a hard time? Apart from accusing me of being a gold-digging, social-climbing shepherd Nah.
I have faith that you'll charm them, just as you charmed me Eventually.
According to Rumplestiltskin, the weapon that will defeat Regina lies at the top of this hill.
This weapon, what does Rumple say of its power? Was it made with dark magic? No, it was forged by a benevolent mage.
His name is Merlin, from a realm named Camelot.
Here it is.
Excalibur.
It's beautiful.
It's stuck.
You wanna try? If you couldn't do it, you really think I can? Well, the legend states only the kingdom's true ruler possesses the strength to free the blade.
I've never ruled anything.
Not yet.
Go on.
You see? You are this kingdom's true leader.
No one's here.
Maybe your spell was wrong, Regina.
Yes.
Blame me again.
Guys Hold on.
Is that Henry! Hi, Emma.
Where the hell is Henry? You broke the rules.
That's not fair.
Bad form.
I expect more from you, captain.
Aye, and you'll get it.
Give Henry to me.
Sorry.
Can't.
Don't you know? Cheaters never win.
Watch out for their arrows.
They're laced with dreamshade.
- Mary Margaret! - Ohh! Aah! David! I'm good.
Behind you! Aah! - It's been a while, captain.
- Not long enough.
You remember what I did to Rufio? Well, it's a far worse fate for you.
Uhh! Aah! Uhh! Where's Henry?! Where is he?! Emma, are you all right? Remember what I told you.
That map will show you where Henry is only when you stop denying who you really are.
I'll make sure to send Henry your regards.
She's coming! The Queen! Ready? What exactly were you two up to today? You'll see.
I hope.
Well, dear, have you packed your bags? I thought about your offer.
And everything you said was true.
I could go off with Charming and the dwarfs, and we could find some lovely corner of the world to live out our days, and it would be a wonderful life.
But I can't leave my people, not with you.
Well, in that case - Charming! - You can do this.
You.
You pulled that sword out of the stone.
Let him go! Aah! Uhh! Uhh! Oh! You told me to stop denying who I really am.
Well, that's exactly what I'm doing.
This is my kingdom, and I will fight for it! Then I'll see you on the battlefield.
We'll be ready.
You okay? You sure you don't want me to take a look at that? I was lucky.
My jacket wasn't.
Don't worry about it.
I think we have bigger issues.
Don't let him shake your confidence.
We've all had moments where we felt we couldn't prevail.
She's right.
Guys, not now.
Please.
Emma, wait.
Please talk to me.
There's nothing to talk about.
We had our chance and we lost I lost.
Then you have to keep fighting.
You heard what Hook said.
Pan is a demon.
- And you are a - What? A savior? Because if that were true, this map would've shown us the way already.
Maybe who you think you are isn't who you really are.
What do you mean? Sometimes we think we know ourselves, but we need a push to show us the reality.
That boy with the knife you stopped fighting him.
Why? 'Cause he was just a boy.
No.
There was something else.
I saw it in your eyes.
Why did you stop? Why? Because when I looked at his face, I saw me.
Go on.
That look in his eyes The despair.
I had it back when I was in the foster system.
Just a lost little girl who didn't matter and didn't think she ever would.
A little girl who cried herself to sleep at night 'cause she wanted her parents so bad.
And could never understand why they gave her up.
And then you found us.
It was too late.
It's just, on this island I I don't feel like a hero or a savior.
I just feel like what I've always been.
An orphan.
Emma.
What? Look.
What happened? You accepted who you are.
I'm sorry.
It's okay.
It's the truth.
You were an orphan.
It's my job to change that.
Rumplestiltskin.
Rumplestiltskin.
What do you want? We need to discuss the deal you made with Charming.
Have to be a bit more specific, dearie.
He came to you searching for something powerful enough to vanquish the Queen.
You told him of Excalibur.
Now whatever it is that he promised you in return, I am prepared to pay it.
But I won't allow him to remain in your debt.
How nauseatingly romantic.
What did he promise you? With you, everything comes with a cost.
It's true.
Your prince came to ask for aid fighting the Queen.
I told him I had nothing to give, and I didn't.
Then how did you know where to find Excalibur? Everyone knows it's in Camelot.
But it's not.
I possess it now.
If that were Excalibur, I wouldn't be able to do this! Sword's a fake, dearie.
Shoddy craftsmanship, too.
But then again, what can you expect from a shepherd? Lucky it wasn't made out of wool.
I struck Regina! I drew blood! Enough of your ramblings! No.
Please.
That belonged to my mother.
And now it belongs to me.
You're right about one thing, dearie.
Everything comes with a cost, including wasting my time.
Mind if we join you? Please.
We may owe you a slight apology.
Slight? Don't get greedy.
Take it.
Okay.
We should never have doubted your intentions.
You were only looking out for her best interests.
Here's to starting over.
We need to talk.
I saw Rumplestiltskin.
Snow, I can explain.
So it's true.
You planted the sword in that stone.
- I did.
- So you took me on an adventure to find a magical sword because You needed to believe in something I already knew.
So when I stood up to Regina You did that on your own.
You had it inside you the entire time.
You just needed some help to realize that.
But you didn't.
The map is working.
We know where Henry is.
Where? Uh we're here at the Southern tip of the isle, in the middle of the Dark Jungle, and Pan's camp lies due north.
That's where he's keeping Henry.
What are we waiting for? Well, the terrain's not easy.
There will undoubtedly be some nasty impediments along the way.
We should prepare.
We only made it out of our last encounter because Pan let us.
We need a new plan.
Agreed.
It's time we stop playing his game and he starts playing ours.
And if I disagree? Go ahead, but I think you know our best chance is together.
You better be right.
Excellent show of patience, luv.
And that's what defeats a nasty little boy.
I hope so.
Is rum your solution to everything? It certainly doesn't hurt.
Mmm.
Hmm? So just how did you unlock the map? I did what Pan asked.
And just who are you, Swan? Wouldn't you like to know? Perhaps I would.
Don't eat the blue ones.
Congratulations.
You did it orphan.
You don't mind if I call you a lost girl, do you? Call me what you like.
It won't stop me from finding Henry.
Oh, I'm counting on that.
There's a reason I tested you.
Really? You haven't forgiven your parents for abandoning you.
Don't deny it.
You haven't.
That's good.
Really good.
'Cause when you find Henry, you'll understand him.
What's that supposed to mean? He hasn't forgiven you either.
By the time you get to him, he'll never want to leave this island.
We'll see.
And as for you, Emma when we're finished, you won't just feel like an orphan.
You'll be one.
