Once Upon a Time s04e10 Episode Script

Fall

1 Previously on Once Upon A Time She wants it to be just the three of us.
Her perfect family.
Anna and Elsa must know the truth.
We might not make it home.
But this could.
I've figured out your plan.
You want to cleave yourself from the dagger.
My mirror is complete.
I can finally cast a spell over all of Storybrooke.
Well done, dearie.
It appears you've won.
That's big of you.
And a welcome change, you're usually so confrontational.
I prefer reasonable.
I'd like to make a deal.
You have nothing that I want.
Well, perhaps I do.
This spell of yours, when it hits, in a few hours from now Sundown.
Sundown, yes.
It will bring out the darkness in everyone in this town.
It will do more than that.
They will tear themselves apart until everyone is dead.
Not everyone.
You'll have what you want, you alone with your sisters, Elsa and Emma, doing who knows what, and I'll be here, too.
Spending every waking moment of my immortal life trying to rip your heart out.
It seems you do have something to offer.
What do you want? To leave.
Didn't we already make this deal? Yes, but I have an eye for a loophole.
And I think I've spotted yours.
My wife and grandson will be destroyed by this spell.
So, I want you to allow them to leave with me.
You spare the two of them, I spare you misery.
Do we have a deal? Enjoy your trip.
Belle was right, my aunt is actually doing this.
The Spell of Shattered Sight.
We open the mines and the vaults, we take shelter there.
This is magic.
It doesn't care about ceilings.
It's started.
How long? By sundown.
By sundown, everyone in this town will start tearing each other apart.
Okay.
The answer is simple.
Let's not be in town.
Hardly an elegant solution.
Nothing wrong with brute force if it works.
If we can get over, we can build a frame, take people over one at a time.
- David, be careful.
- Yeah, yeah.
David! - You okay? - David! Looks like that wall doesn't care much for your brute force.
Elsa, no.
Stop.
Hey, no! That thing could go off again! Come on! It's Anna's necklace.
I thought it was gone.
It's like a miracle.
Glad you found it, but sentimentality is not worth risking your life over.
It's a sign, Emma.
A sign we're gonna win.
Is everyone into this hope thing now? If we're gonna win, we need to stop wasting time.
Mom, Dad, Leroy, go tell everyone what's going on.
When this goes down, everyone needs to be separated from their loved ones if they don't wanna hurt each other.
Killian, go to the waterfront.
See if we can use boats to get some people out.
I have to warn Robin Hood.
His camp's not far from here.
Okay, go.
Elsa and I are gonna talk to Gold, see if he has any ideas.
Henry, you come with us No.
He's with me.
I'm his best chance.
That might not be true.
Emma and I, I think we're immune.
What? These ribbons.
If the Snow Queen wants us to be her sisters, then the curse won't affect us.
So, I should definitely watch Henry.
No.
You're a part of this nut job's plan.
I want Henry near me as long as it's safe for him.
It's okay, Mom.
I'll be fine with her.
Be careful, kid.
We gotta go.
This is happening now.
Any luck? No, it appears to be pretty much unstoppable.
The one thing I did find is there may be a way to undo the effects on anyone it touches.
That's wonderful.
It seems that when somebody's been touched by the spell, that you can use them to undo it.
With a strand of their hair, you can make some kind of counterspell, like a vaccine.
My sister.
What? My aunt said she put me in that urn.
I didn't believe her because Anna would never do that, unless she was under that spell.
We have to get to her.
But you still don't know where she is.
No, but now you can help me find her.
You said if I had something of hers, you could use this locator spell.
Well, now I have something of hers.
Sometimes sentimentality pays off.
Point Elsa.
There's mirror dust in this.
Actually embedded in the metal.
So I was right.
She was under that spell.
So, if we find Anna, she can save everyone.
I'll round up the fairies.
They can set up shop somewhere close and figure out how to make the counterspell.
Thank you.
Let's go.
Elsa, you realize this is a long shot.
I was time traveling when I brought you here.
And when Anna disappeared, it was Thirty years ago.
I know.
But she's okay.
She has to be.
And I don't care how old she is.
She can save us.
Okay, then.
We're relying on mirror dust and fairies.
But now we have a plan, which is progress.
Let's go find your sister.
Holy cats, that is cold.
Ice is like that, I've noticed.
The urn, it was here.
It's gone.
And so is Elsa and my aunt.
But I saw you with it.
Well, now it's missing and Elsa is in it.
I just have to get her out, let her know I didn't mean it.
What's that? It's straw.
Gold straw.
Rumplestiltskin.
Kristoff, my aunt doesn't have the urn.
He does.
You are literally hanging a big assumption on a really thin straw.
But it makes sense.
He would never let someone walk off with something he valued.
I should've known he'd follow me.
And this is good news? Don't worry.
We can get to him.
We can handle him.
And even if we can't, we can figure out a way how to.
Elsa is the only one who can rule Arendelle.
Um, I beg to differ.
What are you doing here? Hearing you confess you attacked the reigning Queen and then lost her to another land, that sounds like treason to me, doesn't it, guys? And I sang with you.
You're both under arrest, under my order as the new King of Arendelle.
What? We were all frozen, but now that your sister's spell has worn off, no one will argue with a new benevolent leader such as myself.
It wasn't her.
As if anyone will believe that.
Okay, you know what? You got us.
Stop them! No fleeing by boat, then.
This Snow Queen is good, isn't she? Sit, lad.
Don't forget where your heart lies.
Now, I have a job for you.
You remember how this works, yes? The hat Not Emma.
No, no.
Not this time.
I have a better plan.
Granny's Diner is being converted into a temporary hive for the vilest of creatures, the pious little fleas.
Pious.
The fairies? Just like any flying pests, if you wanna eliminate the infestation, it's important to get them all.
Doing so will infuse this hat with enough power to allow me to cleave myself from the dagger and then leave this town with my powers intact, a suddenly urgent undertaking.
Now, will you assist me? You have my heart.
You know I can't refuse.
Indeed.
But here's the rub, dearie.
My wife has just called to inform me that she intends to spend the day sequestered amongst said fleas.
So, I need you to stand by while I get her out of the way.
The fairies are working to stop this spell.
You're killing the cure? You do this, you condemn the entire town, and even your own grandson, to whatever happens.
No.
I'm not leaving Henry.
I will take him, and I will take Belle, and I will leave this town to its fate.
But Emma and everyone else I don't have time for everyone else.
And if I have to choose between everyone else and me, then me wins.
Every time.
You can clench your jaw and flash your eyes all you wish, because it doesn't change the fact We're in this together.
What's this called? An arrow.
Yes, and what's this called? Flight.
Flight, yeah.
Stay right there.
- Regina.
- It's happening.
You and your men need to scatter.
All together like this, with all these weapons, you'll kill each other once this spell hits.
Will! Will Scarlet.
There's no need to yell.
I'm just here, Robin.
Emergency.
Break camp! All right, then.
Come on, little man.
Why don't you go help? What? ls there something else? No.
I'm just trying to memorize you like this.
Like what? Nervous and alarmed? No.
With love in your eyes.
I told you what this spell is going to do.
- Maybe it won't.
- It will.
The only people who believe in me in this town are Henry and you.
And the thought of you looking at me like everyone else does, with hatred It just might kill me.
Stop thinking.
We're here now and this is true.
Okay.
Here you go Ha! Is it supposed to do that? Yeah, I know this spell.
It gets brighter as you get closer to your goals.
It's how my parents found each other.
Did you see that? That means it found her, right? She's out there? How about Yeah.
Come on, don't just stand there.
Let's keep going.
The library.
But I've been inside before, and Anna wasn't there.
The library is, well, a funny place.
There are all these tunnels underneath.
You think she could be down there? Regina kept a whole dragon under there for 28 years, I'm sure you can fit a small princess, too.
Yes, frozen by the Snow Queen.
That's why we never found Anna.
But now we will.
Wait, stop! Too much running.
Okay.
I don't hear eight enormous feet, so I think we lost them.
Great.
So, now we just need to get that urn back.
Call me crazy, but I really don't wanna face an evil wizard.
I never said evil.
I mean, he is.
But Oh! I have a plan.
Right before I left, I read Mother's diary, the one Elsa found, looking for clues.
There was something they were looking for called a wishing star.
What's that? I have no idea.
But the important thing is, you can wish on it.
I'm sure they were gonna use it to take Elsa's power, but maybe we can use it to wish Elsa back to us.
Well, obviously they never got it.
Because, Elsa, powers Right.
They tracked it to a pirate named Black Beard, but there's no record they ever met with him.
But we can.
Oh, so, my choices are evil wizard or pirate? Pirates are better than wizards.
Says who? You can pay off pirates.
You and I are rich in many ways, but the thing we're richest in is riches.
So, let's take the power of the royal treasury and go buy ourselves a wishing thing.
We can use it to rescue Elsa, and she can save Arendelle.
It's brighter.
There.
There.
What? No, how can there be a barrier? Look how bright the glow is! She must be practically right on the other side! Anna! Are you there? Look at this dust.
It just recently fell.
All the new ice-spiking and earth-shaking that the Snow Queen's been doing must have caused it.
I can move this.
No.
Elsa, stop.
As much as I enjoyed our last cave-in, I don't wanna do it again.
But she's right there.
Then we'll find another way.
That was the slowest boat ride ever.
Oh! That must be Black Beard's ship.
Okay, now we need to find a crewman and tell him we wanna meet Black Beard because he has something we're willing to pay anything for.
Right.
Ah, someone is playing my song.
I'm Captain Black Beard.
Come on board.
I'm trying to find my sister.
And you have a certain sculpture that can help me do that.
And we wanna buy it.
Sculpture? The wishing star.
Ah! Yes.
The wishing star.
For the right price, it's yours.
And what is the right price? My weight in gold.
So, if it's not delicate, how much tonnage What would you say you weigh, sir? Oh.
Never mind.
It's fine.
Sold.
I mean, bought.
See? Look, things are going so nicely.
Told you if we just keep the faith, everything's gonna work out.
And I told you that pirates were easier to deal with than wizards.
Hey, I told you that.
And no one asked me at all.
He did it again.
Sure, me and the guys can clear the tunnel.
We'll have to work careful, but we can do it.
Let's go now.
- Excuse me.
- Look at this mess.
A good mayor checks that these things are kept up to code.
Yeah, well, if the mayor only has to worry about one villain, and it's herself, that frees up a lot of time for infrastructure.
I've had other issues.
Leroy, how long to clear the passage? A couple hours.
Maybe.
We can get right on it.
That's wonderful.
We don't have a couple hours.
Have you guys not been watching the clock? It'll be sundown before you munchkins finish.
- Dwarfs, sister.
- Like I care.
Let's just blast through and take the risk.
That was Belle over at the diner.
Turns out they can possibly make the counterspell even if we don't find Anna.
They can pull the mirror dust out of the necklace and try to use that.
- It's exactly the same? - Almost.
It'll take a little longer.
The process is difficult and it will destroy the necklace.
So, the necklace can either save all of us or Anna.
No.
It can do both.
We have time.
We don't.
Exploring these tunnels could take days.
So, what'll it be, folks? Save the town or find the sister? Go around the back and wait.
You'll know when you're needed.
What do you want? Excuse me, but I'd like to borrow my wife.
I need you at the shop for a short while.
She's working.
We need her.
Mother Superior's right.
This is too important.
We're really close here, Rumple.
Please, be patient.
Of course.
Well, until you can go, I'll just, uh I'll just keep you company.
Perhaps I'll be helpful.
This is light magic, Dark One.
Well, then maybe I'll learn something.
This shouldn't even be a conversation.
If we don't get the necklace to the fairies right now, we and all our loved ones will be hit by this vicious spell.
It's one woman's life versus a whole town.
Maybe we just haven't thought of an option where we don't have to lose anyone.
Mmm, you're talking like a hero.
Yes, like all you Charmings always do.
But right now, that's not your job.
You're more than heroes, you're leaders, which means making the tough choice where someone has to lose and you have to say who.
I agree with Regina.
You're right.
Yeah, I heard it, too.
We need to do what's best for the most people.
We need to give this town its best chance.
I'm so sorry, but we have to let the fairies destroy that necklace.
This can't be easy.
- The necklace.
Do you have it? - It's right here.
It's pebbles from the mine.
- What? - Where is it? She tricked us so she can use it to keep tracking down her damn sister.
I should know better than to trust blondes by now.
We have to go back and get it.
No.
It's too late.
Too late? Already? By the time you get back here, yes.
Without Anna being here physically, there's no way to make a counterspell in time.
Time for a hope speech? Virtues of blind faith? Well, it seems Elsa's blind faith is exactly what's screwing us right now.
Coming from you, that's just terrifying.
Well, I'm not giving up.
I know she's down in the mines looking for Anna.
I'm gonna go help Elsa find her.
Well, then go.
Because right now, that's our only shot.
Elsa! I'm sorry, I have to try this.
The beach.
That map couldn't have been any more wrong.
I don't understand.
She should be here.
Elsa, I'm sorry.
Magic isn't always perfect.
So, even though it's still glowing, because she's not here, it means The search is over.
Thirty years is a long time.
You think something's happened to her and this has all been a mistake? I think we need to deal with the problem in front of us right now.
I'm sorry.
How do you keep doing that? You didn't exactly leave inconspicuously.
A paid informant on the docks in Arendelle and the swiftest ship in the navy got us here just in time.
This was a trap? We have a deal.
Something about, what, well over 200 pounds of gold? You know, when you're angry, you look so much like your mother.
Wait.
You met my mother? And your dear papa as well.
A very regal couple.
And the fact they thought I wouldn't recognize royalty was charmingly naïve of them.
Honestly, I liked them.
Sold them the star at cost, actually.
The wishing star? That doesn't make sense.
If they had it, they would've used it to take away Elsa's magic.
But perhaps they didn't know that the wishing star can only be used by those with pure hearts.
Well, if there's another one, we're still interested, and we can pay just as much as he can.
Can you? Because my brothers and I spent Wednesday rolling around on the money in the royal treasury.
You rolled around in gold bars? Weird and ouch.
Figure of speech.
We reveled in it.
The point is, it's now in my control, not yours.
You are what they call penniless.
But that doesn't matter because where you're going, you don't need money.
Where's that? Death.
I'm not sure that's a place.
Well, you're both about to find out.
This is the treacherous area known as Poseidon's Boneyard, the exact spot where your parents' ship went down.
How fitting that mother and daughter will have their last regrets in the same place.
Will you both die wishing you never tried to help your freak sister? Well, maybe your bones will mingle with your mother's on the bottom of the sea.
Bring forward the trunk.
There's a trunk? How will their bones mingle if she's in a trunk? I once had a rival who made me walk the plank, and much to my surprise, I was saved by a mermaid.
I applied the lesson.
This trunk will make sure you die without "finterference.
" Elsa's gonna get out of that urn, and when she does, she's gonna take back the kingdom, and kick you and your brothers back to the Southern Isles, which sounds lovelier than I bet it actually is.
I doubt that.
I control the royal navy, the vast armies, and even this enchanted ship you're about to be thrown off, the Jolly Roger.
And if Elsa hasn't found a way to escape an urn in the last 30 years, I doubt she ever will.
Wait, what? Thirty years? The spell that froze Arendelle.
It had us all frozen for 30 years.
My aunt kept us like that for decades? Elsa, my poor sister, she was stuck in an urn all that time! Why would Ingrid unfreeze us all right now? Because she wants to do something worse.
We have to get to Elsa.
We have to stop whatever it is Ingrid is - She's so talky.
- Men! I'm sorry, Emma, but I still have faith.
I still believe she's What? It stopped glowing.
I'm sorry.
She's really gone.
Wait a minute, wait a minute.
There's a nail back here.
Okay, I think I can get through the ropes.
Help! Help! This was my present for Anna for her wedding.
It was among my mother's things.
But to us, it was new.
And I turned it into the last gift I ever gave her.
Elsa, I'm so sorry.
But it's almost sundown.
That cloud is gonna hit any time.
We have to go.
Everyone's gonna turn on each other, and something tells me that being immune to the curse is not gonna stop them from attacking us.
I failed.
I deserve to be attacked.
This This is all I have left of Anna.
Now, I'll never know what happened to her.
Come on! Come on! Oh, come on! Anna! Look! Look! I got my hands out.
Okay, I'm gonna untie you.
All right? Okay, come here, come on.
Okay, okay, come here, okay.
We've got time.
"I, Anna of Arendelle, promise to love and cherish you" Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
What are you doing? I'm marrying you before we die.
- No.
- What? You don't get to marry me unless we get out of this, okay? Now, just keep your chin up and breathe, okay? Anna, wherever you are, whatever happened to you all those years ago, I'm so sorry I didn't find you.
I still have faith.
I know you're out there somewhere.
I won't give up hope.
I just wish I wish you were with me now.
Elsa, come on.
Something's happening.
Do you think it is my aunt's spell? I don't know.
Come on, come on, come on, come on.
I love you.
I love you, too.
What is that? Anna? Anna! Elsa! Anna! I couldn't find you! I was looking for you! You missed your wedding! It's okay! We're here! You're still young! We were frozen.
- For 30 years, apparently.
I don't know.
- How did you get here? It's like you wished it.
My necklace! It was the wishing star! This is an amazing miracle, but it is a cold miracle and we're all wet.
So Yes.
If we can get Anna back to the fairies right away, she might be able to stop the spell.
Wait, there's something I have to do first.
So, Anna's on her way.
I mean, do you really think they can do it? Perhaps.
But if there's one thing I've learned, it's never trust a fairy.
Come, let's get you someplace safe.
Just in case.
So, this spell can't affect Anna, because it already got her once? Exactly.
And the two of you? We're immune.
It's a long story.
We just gotta hurry.
What a funny-looking world.
Right? I'm sorry.
I truly am.
What happened here? What do you think? The Snow Queen.
What does this mean? It means that even with you here, we can't protect everyone.
So, what do we do now? Prepare for the worst.
You'll be safe in here.
So, you can keep the spell out? No, but we must be separated.
As Dark One, I may be immune to this spell, but you can still hurt me.
Go inside, and stay in the back room.
I'm gonna seal it with a protection spell so no one can get to you.
Okay.
Look, I'll be back soon.
And then, we're gonna be together.
And we're gonna be fine.
I promise.
Is it done? You know, she truly loves you.
You could have her forever.
Or all the power in the world.
It's your choice.
I don't need to choose, thank you.
I can, and will, have both.
Now that it's settled, are we done? No, no, I'm not gonna give up control of you just yet.
Not until I have everything I need.
What's left? That's my concern, not yours.
But by morning, all shall be complete, including your life.
Now run along, dearie, and enjoy your last day in this or any land.
Mom.
Dad.
We're running out of time.
You said you had a plan.
- Kristoff? - David! You cut your hair! So did you! I see you brought your lovely fiancée, Joan? - Joan? - It was a code name.
David, I like your short hair.
Not that I didn't like it long, or that I thought it was It's good to see you.
Likewise.
And this is my wife, Snow, our son, Neal, and our daughter, Emma.
Wait.
What? How can she be your daughter? It's a long story.
Once we survive this curse, I'll be happy to tell you all about it.
The plan, what's the plan? This is the plan.
What? You and Anna and Elsa are the only ones immune.
So, the rest of us need to protect ourselves.
Hey, you might wanna try that desk, old friend.
It's sturdy.
Cuff keys are in the top drawer.
I'm not locking you in there.
Yes, you have to.
We won't be able to hurt anyone from in here.
Take the keys, Emma.
I don't know what's gonna happen.
I don't know how long it's gonna last.
I don't know what's gonna happen to me.
I mean, what if you starve to death in there No, Emma, you're gonna fix this thing.
And then you're gonna come back and save us.
You think? We believe in you.
Please.
Now, you know Henry's in a safe place, and Regina and the others can take care of themselves.
What about the baby? Don't worry.
Neal won't be with us.
Who's gonna take him? You are.
Oh.
We don't fear your magic, Emma.
It's what's going to allow you to take on this Snow Queen and win.
And when you do, you'll be right back here unlocking these doors.
We trust you.
And Henry's right.
You are special.
And you are going to use that specialness and save us.
Both of you.
You have wonderful parents, Emma.
I know.
Swan, a word.
Elsa, can you hold my brother? Yes, of course.
What are you doing here? You know what's about to happen.
Aye.
I know.
I just needed to see you.
Before I chain myself to the dock for the protection of all, I needed to see you one more time.
I'm Killian, I'm not a tearful goodbye kiss person.
But maybe just this once.
Good bye.
Okay.
Not long now.
Looks like one more adventure together.
Here it comes.
Henry, I'm so sorry.
I should have stayed focused on Operation Mongoose.
But Robin Hood I let my heart pull me elsewhere.
Operation Mongoose is not over.
We're gonna find the author.
You will be happy.
First, we have to survive.
Now, listen to me carefully, Henry.
I'm going to seal this place.
You're going to be locked in.
But more importantly, everyone else will be locked out.
I understand.
Don't be scared.
I'm not, Mom.
Emma and Elsa will fix this.
Have faith.
I wish I was as brave as you.
Now go.
I'll be okay.
Really.
Go.
I love you.
I love you, too.
Where to now? My vault.
And you need to get as far away from it as possible.
It's dangerous even being around each other now.
We're moments away.
It's okay.
Roland and Marian are locked away somewhere even I don't know.
Henry is safe in there.
I'll go and chain myself to a tree in a minute.
Unless you want me to come with you.
No, no, no, no, no.
I need to seal myself in that vault.
What, to keep people out? Well, no, to keep me in.
Regina, I'm not afraid of you.
But you really, really should be.
Never let go.
Hey, don't be afraid.
You know, we share our heart, and nothing can come between two halves of one heart.
These are just precautions.
No spell is strong enough to break what we have.
