Once Upon a Time s03e13 Episode Script

Witch Hunt

Look at all her things.
Onyx, black pearl Diamond.
A family could live off what this is worth.
She just left it all behind.
Such pretty things All wasted on her.
Now, this could work.
Now, that's how you wear a dress.
I know I look lovely.
Now go find the Evil Queen and let her know that I'm here.
And no there's no need to be gentle.
Seems like old times, doesn't it? Except not running from Regina, but with her.
She's changed.
I have to believe for the better.
I hope it sticks.
But regardless, she doesn't look too good.
If she hadn't tried to hurt us so many times, I might be worried about her.
I'll talk to her.
You ready to make camp soon, Regina? You're thinking about Henry, aren't you? I'm always thinking about Henry.
But I was also thinking There are tunnels that run under the castle.
They may run beneath the spell.
Which means we can sneak an army inside.
An army would be detected.
So, how do the tunnels help us? Because it can get me inside.
And if I can get inside, then I can lower the shield.
Then you can send in your army.
Incoming! Papa! Roland! Not so fast.
Oh! See? Not so scary.
Now you have a new toy.
Thank you.
Okay, Henry's asleep upstairs.
If he wakes up, you two are helping me with the case, okay? So, what the hell happened here? I mean, besides the obvious.
We don't know.
We watched you drive over the town line with Henry.
Regina started to cast her spell to take us all back to the Enchanted Forest.
And then everything went black.
And the next thing we remember is waking up in our beds like it was any other morning in Storybrooke.
Except it clearly wasn't.
Almost harvest time, but you can't remember the planting.
That's bad luck, mate.
Clearly, a year has passed.
I was in New York.
I know that it did.
And we don't know where the hell we were.
We don't even know if we left Storybrooke.
Aye, you did.
I was with you all.
In the Enchanted Forest? Regina's spell brought us back.
We spent a brief time with a Prince and Princess named Phillip and Aurora.
But I wasn't feeling the community spirit, so I ventured off on my own.
Last I saw of you lot, you were making your way to Regina's castle.
And now you're cursed.
Why doesn't that surprise me? Regina seems as clueless as the rest of us.
I'm not sure she was involved in this.
- So she says.
- I don't understand.
If you left the Enchanted Forest before the curse, how did you know to find Emma and come to Storybrooke? As I was sailing the realms, a seagull landed on my ship's wheel with a note instructing me to retrieve Emma and bring her back here.
There was a small vial of memory potion tied to its leg.
Who sent it? You did.
Message via bird that does sound like you.
What is it? We lost another one.
We're down to five now.
Four, actually Bashful's not answering.
What is going on? Thank God you're back, sister.
It's not just our memories that are missing.
Ever since we woke up, people have begun disappearing.
Whoever cursed us is picking us off one by one.
Who exactly is missing? Aside from those dwarfs, we're not sure.
There's been a lot of confusion over the past few days.
It's been hard to keep track of everyone.
Neal is he here? Well, we haven't found him yet.
So he might have been taken, too.
Smart money's on "yes.
" Leroy! He'll turn up, Swan.
He always does.
Some folks are starting to set up camp in the woods at the edge of town.
Neal might be there.
Or he may not have gotten swept up in the curse at all.
There's only one way we're gonna figure all this out.
We need to get your memories back.
How are we going to do that? By figuring out who took them in the first place.
Once Upon a Time 3x13 - Witch Hunt Original air date March 16, 2014 What the hell was that thing? The same kind of monster that attacked us on our journey here.
If I didn't know better, I'd say it looked an awful lot like a monkey.
A monkey with wings? Yes, that's exactly what it is.
You're acting like that's normal.
Actually, it is.
But not here.
There's only one land that has creatures like that.
I've read about it.
Oz? That's a real place? The Bookworm's right.
It's quite real.
And if our simian friend is any indication, then I think we know exactly who's taking up residence in our castle.
The Wicked Witch.
We talking East or West? Does it matter? Neither one sounds good.
One, you drop a house on.
The other, you toss a bucket of water at.
So, Regina, what exactly are we up against, besides green skin and a pointy hat? What did you do to her? This time, nothing.
Never met her.
This isn't a personal vendetta? Shocking.
Okay, then, Oz aside, we stick to the original plan arm up, then attack assuming you can get the shield down.
You don't need to worry about me.
I'm coming with you.
This is a one-woman job.
Well it's the Wicked Witch.
She has flying monkeys who knows what else.
I don't care if the lollipop guild is protecting her.
I can lower that shield on my own.
Then we'll be waiting for you on the other side.
Here you go, Hen young man.
A nice hot cocoa.
With cinnamon.
How did you know? Uh, lucky guess.
You've got a cinnamon kind of face.
Henry, this is David and Mary Margaret.
Are you helping my mom with the case? Or are they the ones who jumped bail? Oh, no, they are they're just old friends.
Friends? From where? - Phoenix.
- Here.
Well, Phoenix and then here.
But I thought you were only in Phoenix for being in that place.
We were cell mates.
Really? What were you in for? Banditry.
People make mistakes.
The important thing is to find a way to keep moving on.
Did you know my dad? Should we order? Let's order.
Oh I'm sorry.
I I didn't mean to startle you.
Oh, um T that's okay.
Regina, we need to talk.
Come on.
He looked right through me.
Because he doesn't remember you.
But you clearly do.
Why are you here? Storybrooke, a new curse, missing year why do you think? No, what I mean is, how did you know to come back? I gave you and Henry a new life, new memories.
Hook found me, gave me a potion that made me remember.
There wasn't enough for Henry.
Well, how convenient.
Look, I didn't cast this curse, if that's what you're thinking.
The thought did cross my mind.
Why would I do this? Why would I erase an entire year of my life? Maybe it was a bad year for you.
Maybe this curse was your way of getting me to bring Henry back here.
With no memory of me? If I wanted my son back, do you think I'd put myself through this kind of torture? I cast curses to hurt other people, not myself.
Maybe so.
But I need to start crossing people off the list.
How? By walking around, using your superpower on everyone? You got a better idea? I've never seen a bow like that.
Its aim is truer than any I've seen without magic.
Where did you get it? The store.
And you procured it with what? You stole it? The proprietor looked rich, and we're poor here.
We got to eat.
Speaking of eating, I see dinner.
Let's see how fast the wild turkeys are in this land.
Only missed by a feather's length.
Seems that bow has improved your aim.
John! Where are you going? Aaaaah! John! John!! This this is where he was taken.
I wouldn't step over that line if I were you.
You think little John was carried away because he attempted to cross that line? Makes sense the dwarfs were out checking the line to see if anyone was coming or going when they disappeared.
What exactly took little John? We didn't get a good look some manner of beast with wings.
It sounds a lot like the monster that attacked me in New York.
You mean the monster you were gonna to marry? You were gonna marry someone? Did you just miss the part where I said "monster"? We need to find little John.
It may lead us to everyone else who's gone missing.
David, take him and the rest of his m Merry Men.
Right, them and run a search grid and see if you can find any sign of their missing guy.
Are you not joining us, Swan? Not yet.
Regina was right.
I'm not gonna figure out who's behind this curse by talking to people one by one.
What are you gonna do? I'm gonna talk to everybody.
Everyone! Everyone, I know that you're frightened and confused, but I need you to listen.
Is it true? Is there is there some kind of monster keeping us from leaving town? Is that what happened to my brothers? Yes.
We believe that people are being abducted as they approach the town line.
So we're trapped here again? It's no different than last time.
Last time, we lost our memories.
This time, we get dragged into the woods! Do you know who cursed us why they want us here? I'm working on it, but it's hard to figure out who cast a curse when no one remembers the last year.
Who? Isn't it obvious? Do you remember something? Who cast the last curse? Who knows how to use it? Who's the only one who ever did anything like this before?! The Evil Queen! For once, I'm just as clueless as the rest of you.
You expect us to believe that? It's the truth.
This curse has your fingerprints all over it.
And you did take away our memories once before.
Still have your big house.
You think I care about my house? About my job? About any of these things? Regina, please.
Just tell us the truth.
We'll understand.
Speak for yourself.
I am telling the truth.
If I had done this, there's one thing I'd have right now my son.
Yeah, you're not getting anywhere near him until I get to the bottom of what's going on here.
So now you're siding with the rabble? I thought we'd been through this.
I'm innocent.
Yes, that's what you said before, but now I'm wondering if I believe you.
Don't come any closer! Regina do you remember who you're dealing with? If you all want me to be the Evil Queen, then fine.
That's exactly who you'll get.
I knew she did it! We can't let her get away.
I won't.
"No" what? You're not.
Not coming along? I do believe I am.
I can help.
I didn't ask for help.
Well, that doesn't mean you won't need it.
That flying monkey back there wasn't after my son.
It was coming after you.
What makes you think that? The woods are my home.
I've seen many a hunter stalk its prey, and that beast was coming for you.
Roland just happened to be standing in between.
Your point? That's the second time you've been attacked.
The Wicked Witch wants you dead.
And what? You think you can stop her if she tries to hurt me? Maybe.
Maybe not.
But I have to try.
You see, despite the fact that neither of us likes it, I owe you a debt.
Why is that? Even though that winged beast wasn't after Roland, he still could have hurt my son.
You saved him.
Who knew a thief had honor? Who knew an Evil Queen had a soft spot for children? Don't get in my way.
I wouldn't dream of it.
An earthquake? I had to make a statement.
And you're fine.
So, do you think they bought it? Yeah, I think they did.
Nice work.
Now let's figure out who really cursed this town.
How long do you think we have? Until whoever cast this curse realizes you're not actually on the run from me.
But till then, no one's gonna suspect we're working together.
Let's see it.
That enough? Uh, to use? No.
But to replicate? I think so.
We can start waking people up, figure out who the hell sent everyone back here.
And I can make Henry remember me.
Thank you.
For what? We haven't done anything yet.
You saw how quick this town was to blame me.
But you you believe I didn't cast that curse.
I know that wasn't easy for you.
Sure it was.
I knew you were telling the truth.
Even though everything that has happened has put me right next to Henry? Maybe this was some super-complicated, ingenious plan.
It wasn't.
My superpower may not be perfect, but with you, Regina, I always know when you're lying.
This time, you're not.
You didn't do it.
Even though you know I can't live without him.
There you go telling the truth again.
So, where are we headed? There's a fire in the courtyard that powers her spell.
As long as it burns, the shield will stay up.
Then we simply need to put it out.
I simply need to put it out.
You need to stay out of my way.
Step in between.
Nice little surprise.
For keeping people like you out.
People like me? Thieves.
Ah, yes.
But we aren't all bad, you know.
Not when you tell yourself you're stealing from the rich to give to the poor.
I may have done bad things in my life, but at least I own it.
I own my mistakes, too.
I hope you didn't let me come with you just so you can walk me into one of these traps.
Roland's already lost his mother.
I would hate for him to lose his father, too.
Well, then, you should have stayed with the others.
So Roland's mother what happened to her? After our boy was born, I inadvertently put her in harm's way during a job.
It was my fault.
Like I said, I own my mistakes.
That's not possible.
What's wrong? That door it's open.
Perhaps you left it unlocked.
I sealed it with blood magic.
I'm the only one who can open it.
Clearly not.
It appears the Wicked Witch is a formidable foe.
What exactly was this place? Must have been important for you to seal it by blood.
A crypt.
Isn't that obvious? Yes.
What I meant was, who was it built for? My mother.
Like you, I've lost people I care about more than I'd like to admit.
Including a child? What do you know about that? I saw the way you grabbed Roland back there.
Clearly, you have the touch of a mother.
I do.
He's not with us on this trek.
What happened to him? He's not dead, if that's what you think.
He's just lost to me forever.
If the Wicked Witch is powerful enough to break blood magic, perhaps we should reconsider this plan.
I don't care how powerful this witch is.
I have to go through with this plan.
My God.
Did you know there's something called "cradle cap"? Babies get it on their heads.
It's a crusty, yellow, greasy, scaly skin rash.
Seriously! This book uses all of those words.
Yes! De-rezzed him.
You know, there's a library down the street.
We can pop in and get you something, if you'd rather.
I know how much you love reading.
How'd you know that? Y your mom said I think.
Uh, let me go get my coat.
I'll be right down.
Cradle cap You know, it goes away.
It doesn't hurt the baby.
It doesn't? Babies are stronger than you think.
You're Snow White, aren't you? I'm Mary Margaret here, actually.
This must be your first time in Storybrooke? I missed the last curse, so everything in this world is still a bit new.
Don't worry.
You'll get used to it.
Who were you back in our land? Oh.
No one you'd remember.
Not everyone was famous, like you.
I don't know if I'd say "famous.
" You were a princess.
And some of us were just supporting players.
No, it's okay.
I loved who I was and what I did.
I was a midwife.
Really? Mm-hmm.
My name's Zelena.
Look, I've seen a lot of new mothers.
Don't worry.
You'll learn quickly.
Maybe you could give me some advice? I have been turning the corner of every page on which I have a question, and now I can't close the book, there are so many.
It would be an honor.
Once I have the baby, I may not let you leave my side.
May I? Wow.
Helping Snow White with her baby.
I can't think of anything that would make me happier.
Guys! He was dragged.
He's there! Oh - Is he alive? - Barely.
John, I'm here.
We've got you.
I've never seen a bite like that before.
- No, me neither.
- Okay, help me get him up.
We've got to get him some help.
Make yourself useful.
Keep watch.
What is that? Nothing that concerns you.
I won't ask you again.
What is that? How dare you threaten me in my own castle! Even if you choke the life out of me, this arrow will still leave my bow.
And trust me I never miss.
Now, what manner of dark potion are you making? A sleeping curse.
The kind you used on Snow White? That spell came from Maleficent.
I finally learned how to make one of my own.
This spell this is why you wanted to come to the castle? Ingredients like these are hard to come by especially when you have Snow White breathing down your neck every second of the day.
That was your plan? To use it on the witch? The Witch? I don't care about her.
Then who do you plan to use it on? Don't worry.
No one you'll miss.
No one anyone will miss.
This is about your son, isn't it? I can't let you do this.
Then it's a good thing you don't have a say in the matter.
I know how you feel, Regina.
I doubt that.
When I lost my wife, I felt that there was no reason to go on.
But then I found one my son.
That's where you and I are different.
I already lost Henry.
I already lost the only thing I care about.
That doesn't mean you won't find a new reason.
We all get a second chance, Regina.
You just have to open your eyes to see it.
It's too bad mine will be closed.
So, that's it? You just want to give up? This isn't an end.
It's an eternal middle.
This curse can be broken by the only true love in my life.
And the only reason I would even want to wake.
My son.
Regina, listen to me.
This is a mistake.
Don't worry.
I'll keep my word.
I'll lower the protection spell so that Snow and Charming can be victorious.
But then then I go to sleep.
Did it work? There's only one way to find out.
Well? Do you remember? Either that wall did something to you in the past year, or I'm gonna say it didn't work.
I must have missed an ingredient.
Can we try again? I already used up what was left of the potion Hook gave you.
There's nothing left to replicate.
I can't live in this town if Henry doesn't remember me.
That's worse than any curse I ever could have cast.
What if we can still find the person who cursed the town? Haven't you been paying attention? I can't make any more potion.
You don't have to make anything.
- We can still catch the person.
- How? We've been running a con by making this potion in secret.
What if we're running the wrong con? I'm I'm sorry.
I'm not well versed in cons.
Unlike you, I never spent time in prison.
No, it's not something I learned in prison.
It's an old bail-bonds trick.
You smoke out the perp by making them think you're onto them.
How does that help us? If the person who cast the curse thought we were about to make a memory potion They'd want to stop us.
And then we set a trap for them when they do.
We just need to get the word out that you're close to making all this work.
I know just who to tell.
Big news, everybody! Emma found Regina.
She was holed up in her office, working on a potion.
What kind of potion? Was she gonna hurt us? A memory potion.
Regina says she's gonna use it to prove that she didn't cast the curse.
Like I'd drink anything she handed me.
Well, somebody will! And if they remember, we'll know exactly who did this to us.
He's bradycardic! B.
dropping fast! - What did this to him? - We don't know.
- He's going into shock! - We need to sedate him.
Aaaaaaaaaah! Aah! - Aah! - John! Aaaah! Aah! Bloody hell! John! Okay.
I didn't see that coming.
What the hell was that thing? Don't look at me.
I'm a doctor, not a vet.
So, do we just sit here and wait? Till the person who cast the curse makes a move on your office.
Is this really what you do for a living? Yeah.
It's called a stakeout.
And you don't get bored? I don't know.
You find ways to pass time eat, talk mostly watch, which is what we should be doing.
Does he have friends? Does who have friends? Henry.
Does he have any friends in New York? Yeah.
He has a lot of friends.
No girlfriends yet at least, not that I know about.
So he's happy? His life is good there? Yeah.
I almost didn't come back because of that.
Well, why did you? Because he may not remember all of this, but I do, and I know what he would say.
A hero would come back.
He would say that.
Are you sure you don't want to meet him? We can just tell him you're an old friend, like Mary Margaret and David.
It would be too hard.
I can't imagi We got 'em.
You sure whoever's in there can't escape? I sealed the room with a blood lock.
It can keep you out or it can keep you in.
I know what I'm doing.
There! - Don't move! - There's nowhere for you to go.
I thought you said they couldn't do that.
No one can break through blood magic, no matter how powerful they are.
Then who are we dealing with? It's down! We move on the castle now.
I'm sorry, Henry.
Maybe one day, you'll find me and wake me up.
But until then You weren't even going to say "hello" first? That's not exactly the welcome I was expecting.
What does a witch have to do to get your attention? What's the matter? Has life got you down? None of your business.
You really don't know who I am, do you? I know exactly who you are the Wicked Witch.
Is that all? I'm not that interested.
Please allow me to introduce myself.
You can call me Zelena.
That's my dress.
I had to take it in a little bit at the hips, but looks better on me, don't you think? I think you never should have left Oz.
You can have your castle back if you want it that badly.
I was just trying it on for size.
Besides, I've already seen everything worth seeing your closet, your gardens your crypt.
Yes, how did you break the blood lock? I didn't.
The door was open.
No one's that powerful.
Cora really never told you? Told me what? The truth about us, Regina.
What are you talking about? How do you know my mother? The same way you do.
I'm your sister.
Actually, half-sister, but details, details.
That's not possible.
You're green.
And you're rude.
Cora had me first, before she wormed her way into the dregs of royalty.
Well, you know I'm telling the truth.
How else could I have broken the door to the crypt? Our mother gave me up and sent me away, but you you, she kept.
You, she gave everything.
Everything she wanted.
If what you're saying is true, then you were lucky to escape her.
Enough with the martyr complex, Regina.
Try growing up without a mother.
Try living in Oz, knowing that no one thought you were good enough not your mother and not the only man that our paths both crossed.
You knew Rumplestiltskin? Well, did you think you were his only student? Let me guess you're mad because he chose me to cast his curse? Well, get over it.
It wasn't everything it was cracked up to be.
Anything would have been better than the life I had.
But despite my shortcomings, I made something of myself, dear.
And I didn't need Cora or Rumplestiltskin.
Well, it's too bad they're not around to see how well you turned out.
They're both dead.
That's all right.
You're the only one I need alive.
Really? Why is that? Because I'm going to take everything away from you.
Too late.
I've already lost everything that matters.
No, Regina, you haven't lost anything yet.
So you are going to kill me.
That's too easy.
For me to get what I want, I need you to suffer.
You see, what's in store for me is all my dreams being realized.
But for you? Well it's a fate worse than death.
Go ahead.
Bring it, Greenie.
Indeed I will.
See you soon, sis.
You didn't go through with it? You were right.
The sleeping curse wasn't the answer.
As you said, I just needed to find something to live for.
And you found it? What? The one thing I haven't had in a very long time.
Someone to destroy.
Maybe this isn't a good idea.
It's gonna be fine.
Trust me.
How was your day? Good.
Storybrooke is a weird place, but cool.
Did you know there's a library inside a clock tower? I do.
I've been there before.
Come here.
I want you to meet someone.
This is Regina Mills.
She's the Mayor of this town, and she wanted to meet you.
Is something wrong? No, no.
No, nothing's wrong.
Uh, your mother just told me a lot about you.
I hear you like school and that you're good at English.
Um yeah.
Why'd she tell you all this? Because she couldn't be prouder of you.
Uh, while you're in town, I was thinking maybe I can give you a tour sometime you know, show you around.
Maybe we can even stop for ice cream.
I'd like that.
So um it was nice meeting you.
How was that? You okay? It was a start.
We need to talk.
Uh outside.
They're being turned into flying monkeys? Yes.
He took on simian form with the added bonus of wings.
Do you think that's what happened to the missing dwarfs, too? It would explain why we haven't found any trace of them.
And Neal? No sign of him, either.
So yeah, it's possible.
Wouldn't be the first flying monkey I've dated.
The person who escaped our trap disappeared in a cloud of green smoke.
And now there are flying monkeys in this town? I think we know exactly who cursed us.
The Wicked Witch of the West? Seriously? She's real, too? Says the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming.
I don't get it.
It's not like we're in Kansas.
Why would the Wicked Witch of the West want to come to Storybrooke? Hungry? You never should have brought me back.
Eat up.
We've got work to do.
You feed the madness, and it feeds on you You feed the madness, and it feeds on you You feed the madness, and it feeds on you
