Once Upon a Time s03e11 Episode Script

Going Home

You never cease to amaze me, Peter.
Outwitting the Evil Queen in less than a day? Impressive.
She loves the boy.
That makes her weak.
This is it.
This is where we'll cast it.
The ingredients? When it's done, will they all be dead? Worse.
They'll be slaves to this new land we're making, with no idea who they once were.
Death is final, Felix.
Their suffering will be eternal.
Another curse? It's happening again? Gold, this curse, is it gonna work like the last one? The last one was created to service the Queen's wishes.
This will be done per Pan's desire.
I would count on something hellish.
The curse was built to be unstoppable.
There's nothing that can be done.
Well, it is possible to stop it.
- What? - By using the scroll itself.
It can only be undone by the person who used the scroll.
That's you, Regina.
What she did is child's play compared to what I have in mind.
I knew you'd win.
Peter Pan never fails.
What do I have to do? You must destroy the scroll.
Both your curse and his shall be ended, but know this there will be a price.
A steep one.
W what do you suggest? Instead of going to him, bring him to us with a spell one that will return Pan and Henry to their own bodies.
Are we missing something? Yes.
What is it? The heart of the thing I love most.
You mean your son's heart? Rumplestiltskin? No, no.
I I never loved Rumple.
Well, then whose heart do we need? Who do you love? Love can mean many things, Felix.
It doesn't just come from romance or family.
It can also come from loyalty.
Only one person has always believed in Pan.
That's me.
Don't be afraid.
Be flattered.
No, no, no, no, no! Aah! If I'm back in my own body, that means I'll have the scroll.
I I can bring it to you guys.
Exactly right, Henry.
Even you aren't powerful enough to cast such a spell.
Well, given the proper tool, I could be.
The Black Fairy's wand one of the most powerful fairies that ever existed.
Well-versed in dark magic.
The Blue Fairy exiled her.
But before she did, she took her wand.
I assume our dearly departed mother superior had it hidden at her residence.
Then what are we waiting for? Let's hit the convent.
Can I come? I should pay my respects to Blue, after all.
Then it's settled.
The rest of us should get back to my shop and prepare Henry for the spell.
Once Upon a Time 3x11 - Going Home Original air date December 15, 2013 What if it fails? A magic wardrobe? It's a long shot.
We all know this, so what do we do if this plan doesn't work? Then the Queen's curse will transport us to a new land.
We will lose our memories and become a slave to her darkest desires.
So we have to have faith that your child will find a way to save us.
If we don't know who we are, and we can't tell her that she's the Savior, - how will she know what to do? - One day, when the time is right, - our story will reveal itself to her, you have to trust me.
- Our story.
Our "our story.
" What does that mean? I don't know yet.
But I do know that it will happen.
Then how can you be so sure? Because I have the one thing you need now more than anything hope.
Good luck, Snow.
Have faith.
That's easy to say when you have magic wings and a wand.
What can we do but choose to believe her? This was supposed to be hers.
We had such plans.
Listen to Blue.
Have hope we can prevail.
This curse has destroyed every dream this family ever had.
Well, you don't know what the future holds for us.
How do you know that it holds anything good? Because the unknown isn't always bad.
Life is full of twists and turns you never see coming.
This curse? It's just a turn.
But all I ever wanted was for us to raise our child together.
That was our happy ending, and now it's gone.
The future we imagined is gone.
But that doesn't mean we can't find another one an unexpected one.
I choose hope.
I can believe.
This mobile hung above your crib.
Um, it was supposed to hang over your crib.
I like the unicorns.
Giving you up when the curse hit was the hardest thing I've ever had to do.
- I know.
- Every time I look at you, I wonder what would've happened if I hadn't had to.
I do the same thing with Henry.
You were doing your best.
You were giving him his best chance.
But still things would've been very different if I had kept him.
We would've had a life together.
A normal one.
Back in Boston or someplace else.
But I guess all that was just not meant to be.
- You doing okay, kid? - Yeah.
I'm just ready to be me again.
Not much longer now, Henry.
Not much longer.
Once we have the wand, all will be as it should.
Sorry to interrupt, but we need your help.
With what? Black Fairy's wand is here.
We need it.
We can never Yeah, it's a terrible, terrible thing.
But what's coming is worse.
Where is it? What the hell was that? Pan's shadow.
What does it want? The wand.
Run! Run! - Get the hell out of here! - Stay covered! Over there.
Smee, you might want to pick up the pace.
It would do our journey and your physique some good.
Sorry, Cap'n.
It's just, this place gives me the creeps.
Don't you think we should head back to the ship? Not until I've found a way off this accursed island.
We've dawdled here for too long.
Now that I know there's a dagger can end the Dark One, we must return to our land.
My purpose is renewed.
Why can't your purpose be back at the ship where it's safe? Smee? Aren't you a little old to be a lost boy? I'm not part of Pan's brigade.
And I can assure you, I'm anything but a boy.
Who are you and why are you here? I'm the captain of the "Jolly Roger," and I'm here looking for some magic to help me make my way back home to my land.
You don't have any, do you? Magic? Fresh out.
Well, I don't buy that for a second.
If I didn't know any better, I'd say you were a fairy.
And if I didn't know any better, I'd say you were a pirate.
So tell me, fairy, can you help me? Help you? Aren't you worried about me slitting your throat? Well, that's not the fairy way.
You should be helping me find my happy ending, or something else equally as precious.
I was a fairy, a long time ago.
But then my wings were taken away.
As for your happy ending? You're on your own.
Watch it! It's not a weapon in the traditional sense.
Rum? What's so important back home? The Dark One murdered the woman I love, and I intend to make him suffer for it.
And so killing him is your happy ending? Even if by doing so, you could end your own existence? I'd risk my life for two things love and revenge.
I lost the first.
And if I die for my vengeance, then that's enough satisfaction for me.
So all we have to do is light the candle again, right? - That's how you trapped it in Neverland? - Yeah.
But this time I say, we get rid of it for good.
I'll draw its ire.
Are you sure you want to do this? If it's the only way to prevent this bloody curse from obliterating us all, then it's a risk I'm willing to take.
I thought you'd only risk your life for love or revenge? One other important thing me.
Hey! Is that the best you've got? Can you trap it? No, it's too high.
We've got to get closer.
And I can't fly up there.
- Tink - If you didn't notice, I don't have my wings.
But you have pixie dust.
That doesn't work.
No, no, no, Tink.
You made it work once.
You can do it again.
Look who's still a fairy.
Look who's still a pirate.
You were right.
Well, I lost a hand once.
This is nothing.
For the record, I know why you risked your life back there and it wasn't for yourself or revenge.
It was for Emma.
Well done, Green.
Blue! - But you were - Gone.
I know.
But when you killed the shadow, mine was returned and I was revived.
Thank you.
You finally believed in yourself, Green Tinker Bell.
Welcome back.
I'm a fairy again? Even after I disobeyed all your rules? I might've been overly strict.
You deserved your wings, Tinker Bell.
And you have earned them back many times over.
Thank you.
As for the Black Fairy's wand Go.
Save us all.
She's back the Blue Fairy.
She gave us the wand.
Do we need anything else? Only one more item.
What is that? This is one of the only useful things I managed to pilfer from Greg and Tamara before they left for Neverland.
It renders anyone with magic utterly powerless.
I haven't forgotten about all of that, by the way.
Let me see your wrist, Henry.
I wanna make sure that when my dear old dad awakes, that he's weakened.
This will block his powers.
So what happens now? I enact the spell, you fall into a deep sleep, and when you awake, you're back in your own body.
And then you hang on to that scroll, and you come find us as fast as you can.
When I gave my heart to Pan I thought I was being a hero.
I'm sorry.
No, you're not the one that needs to be sorry.
Pan does.
It's time.
Keep your eye on the wand.
What's happening? Henry's spirit is leaving Pan's body.
It worked! Let's go find our son.
You're not coming? No, no, I I think not.
My father and I have some, uh unfinished family business.
Henry? You didn't turn in your homework again.
Is there a problem? Oh, Henry, things really will change if you just believe it.
Life is unpredictable.
Is your life unpredictable? 'Cause it seems to me like everything's pretty much the same around here except me.
My birth mom didn't love me.
Regina says she does, but she doesn't.
I I don't belong here.
You do belong here, Henry.
You are loved.
I wanna show you something.
This morning, I was cleaning out my bedroom closet, like I've done every week thousands of times.
And do you know what happened? I found something something I've never noticed before.
It was just there like magic.
That's not possible.
Well, of course not, but it happened.
This book somehow arrived.
Was it given to me? Did I forget about it? I don't know.
But there it was.
And do you know what I saw when I looked inside? Hope.
Looks like fairy tales to me.
And what exactly do you think fairy tales are? They are a reminder that our lives will get better if we just hold on to hope.
Your happy ending may not be what you expect, but that is what will make it so special.
Can can I borrow this? You can have it.
Really? Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a powerful thing.
I think you could use it.
I'll see you in class.
- Miss Blanchard! - Yes? Thank you.
You're very welcome.
I've got his scent! He's nearby.
- The tower? - Yeah.
It's me! It's me.
It worked.
Mom, mom, I just saw you guys.
You guys just saw me.
But we didn't see you.
Oh, he's got it.
It's up to you now.
Regina! Regina.
Regina! Hello, papa.
Thought you'd have killed me in my sleep, laddie.
I guess you've changed your Oh, wait.
I see.
You've taken away my magic.
That's why it's so easy for you to strut around and pose now, isn't it? I wanted to talk to you.
I wanted you to see me and think about what you've done.
Of course.
To look at my son here at the end, and really see him and think about what might've been.
Is that what you want? Because I do.
I remember looking at you the littlest babe, helpless and all mine.
Those big, big eyes just full of tears, pulling at me, pulling away my name, my money, my time.
Pulling away any hope of making my life into something better for myself.
This pink, naked, squirming little larva, that wanted to eat my dreams alive and never stop.
Wh what are you now? A a couple hundred? Can't I be free of you? Oh, you will be in death.
Then one last lesson, son.
Never make a cage you can't get out of.
I made this cuff, you know.
Doesn't work on me.
But on you Down, boy.
Let's see how you do without magic.
I've come too far for this, for them.
- For your son? - No.
It's too late.
Soon, that fine green smoke will fill their lungs, then fog their brains.
And unlike the rest of this town, I'm not just going to take their memories.
Because of their special meaning to you, I'm going to take their lives.
And you won't do a thing to stop me.
Do you know why? Because without magic, you are right back to where you started the village coward.
Aah! Too many years to count, Bae, but I've counted every one.
Oh, I.
I'm sorry, I I didn't know you were in here.
Go away.
I'll, uh, I'll just put these flowers down.
Go away.
I'm, uh, I'm so sorry.
It was a remembrance, wasn't it? How old would he be? He's just lost.
Lost? Today is his birthday.
I should be with him, celebrating.
We had a chance to be happy together, but I was afraid.
Maybe it's not too late.
I hope not.
Now my ending shall not be a happy one.
Regina! Regina! Regina! Emma.
What happened? Are you okay? Yes, I'm fine.
It was just What is it? What happened when you touched it? I saw what needed to be done.
Mom, a are you gonna be okay? The important thing is, you will be.
No, he won't.
He has the Curse? That I do.
Look at you all.
A captive audience.
I could play with you like a pack of dolls, couldn't I? But I think I'll start with these two.
Hmm, you both look so adorable.
Hard to tell which one to kill first.
No, it isn't.
You first.
Stay away from them.
Well, how about this? The worm has teeth.
What, you're here to pwotect your wuved ones? I'm not going to let you touch either one of them.
Oh, and I'd like to see that.
Oh, you will.
Because I have a job to finish, and I have to do it, whatever it takes.
No loopholes.
And what needs to be done has a price a price I'm finally willing to pay.
I used the curse to find you, Bae, to tell you I made a mistake, to make sure you had a chance at happiness.
And that happiness is possible just not with me.
I accept that.
Pretty, pretty words.
I love you, Bae.
And I love you, Belle.
You made me stronger.
- Stronger? - Yes.
But still No magic.
Oh, but I don't need it.
You see, you may have lost your shadow, but there's one thing you're forgetting.
And what's that? So have I.
I sent it away with something to hide.
Uhh! What are you doing? You see, the only way for you to die is if we both die.
And now now I'm ready.
Hello, papa.
Rumple, please.
You can stop this.
Remove the dagger.
We can start over.
We can have a happy ending.
Ah, but I'm a villain.
And villains don't get happy endings.
No! Rumple He's he's gone.
Regina? Are you okay? I'm fine.
I'm so sorry.
My father did what he had to do.
He saved us.
Regina, don't let him die for nothing.
- Regina.
- What? We're here for a reason, luv.
- Pan? - He's dead.
His curse remains.
Can you stop it? Or should we all start preparing our souls? 'Cause mine's gonna take some time.
It's here! It's here! The curse! It's here! It's coming! From all sides.
There's no escape.
It's not too late.
We can still stop it, right? Regina? Yes.
Wh what's the price? Gold said that there was a price.
What is our price? It's not our price.
It's mine.
What are you talking about? It's what I felt when I first held it.
I have to say good-bye to the thing I love most.
Henry? I can never see him again.
I have no choice.
I have to undo what I started.
The curse that brought us to Storybrooke.
That created Storybrooke.
It doesn't belong here.
And neither do any of us.
Breaking the curse destroys the town.
It will wink out of existence as though it were never here.
And everyone would go back to where they're from, prevented from ever returning.
You'll go back to the Enchanted Forest.
All of us.
Except Henry.
He will stay here because he was born here.
Alone? No.
You will take him, because you're the Savior.
You were created to break the curse.
And once again, you can escape it.
I I don't want to.
We'll both go back with everyone.
That's not an option.
I can't be with him.
If I don't pay the price, none of this will work.
Emma, you have to go.
I just found you.
And now it's time for you to leave us again.
For your best chance, for his.
N no, I I I'm not done.
I'm the Savior, right? I'm supposed to bring back all the happy endings.
That's what Henry always said.
Happy endings aren't always what they think they will be.
Look around you.
You've touched the lives of everyone here.
But we're a family.
Yes, and we always will be.
You gave us that.
You and Henry can be a family, and you can get your wish.
You can be like everyone else.
You can be happy.
It's time for you to believe in yourself, Emma.
It's time for you to find hope.
I've known you for some time, and all I've wanted was for you to get the hell out of my life so I can be with my son.
But, really, what I want is for Henry to be happy.
We have no choice.
You have to go.
Okay, now, big push.
Big push.
Push, push, push.
Here we go.
Good, that's beautiful.
I know.
It's a boy, Emma.
Emma? Emma, just so you know, you can change you mind.
I can't be a mother.
This isn't fair.
It's all my fault.
What do you mean? If I had never gone to get Emma, if I just lived under the curse with you, none of this would've ever happened.
I thought I was alone.
I thought you didn't love me.
But I was wrong.
I was wrong, too.
It wasn't your fault.
It's mine.
I cast a curse out of vengeance.
And I'm I'm a villain.
You heard Mr.
Villains don't get happy endings.
You're not a villain.
You're my mom.
Neal I'm sorry.
Don't be.
You gotta get our boy the hell out of here.
And you have to go back there.
Yeah, I do.
This isn't over.
I'll see both of you again.
That's quite the vessel you captain there, Swan.
There's not a day will go by I won't think of you.
Emma there's something I haven't told you.
What now? When the curse washes over us, it will send us all back.
Nothing will be left behind including your memories.
It's just what the curse does.
Storybrooke will no longer exist.
It won't ever have existed.
So these last years will be gone from both your memories.
And we just go back to being stories again.
What will happen to us? I don't know.
That doesn't sound much like a happy ending.
It's not.
But I can give you one.
You can preserve our memories? No.
I can do what I did to everyone else in this town and give you new ones.
You cursed them, and they were miserable.
They didn't have to be.
My gift to you is good memories, a good life for you and Henry.
You'll have never given him up.
You'll have always been together.
You would do that? When I stop Pan's curse, and you cross that town line, you will have the life you always wanted.
But it won't be real.
Well, your past won't, but your future will.
Now go.
There isn't much time left, and the curse will be here any minute.
Emma, just so you know, you can change your mind.
Let me hold him.
Here you go.
Oh! Mom, you forgot something.
There you go.
Someone coming over? No.
Henry, wait here.
At last.
Whoa! Do I know you? Look, I need your help.
Something's happened, something terrible.
Your family is in trouble.
My family's right there.
Who are you? An old friend.
I know you can't remember me, but I can make you.
What the hell are you doing? Long shot.
I had to try.
I was hoping you felt as I did.
All you're gonna feel is the handcuffs when I call the cops.
Look, I know this seems crazy, but you have to listen to me.
You have to remem Who was that? No idea.
Someone must've left the door open downstairs.
Come on, let's eat.
