Once Upon a Time s06e17 Episode Script


Previously on "Once Upon a Time" David: A sleeping curse? That's never kept us apart before.
Gideon: You stole me from my parents.
They abandoned you! You may have stopped me, but you can't stop The Savior.
[Squish] Now you are mine.
Emma, are you there? I was on my way back to you, and Gideon He wanted me out of the way.
[Distant shouting] Blackbeard: Who are they? The Lost Boys.
Where are we? Neverland.
[Whooping] Get the pirate! Make him pay! [Whooping continues] Over there! [Breathing heavily] Oh, bloody hell.
Look, I've got I've got treasure buried all over this island and, uh and rum.
Any of you lads old enough to drink rum? There's only one thing we want from you to make you pay for what happened to Pan.
Aye? [Sighs] Well, let's get on with it then.
I've got somebody waiting for me at home.
Now, look, I don't want to hurt any of you, so this is your last chance.
Ugh! [Darts whistling] [All groan] You should really be more careful, Captain.
The Lost Boys have gotten nasty since Pan died.
Tiger Lily.
Didn't expect to ever see you back on this rock.
Neither did I.
This isn't exactly what you call a planned excursion.
I suppose thanks are in order for the daring rescue.
About that who said this was a rescue? [Grunts] "The Final Battle"? According to that weasel, Isaac, that's what these hieroglyphs mean.
We really are at the end of the book.
We should have seen this coming.
- There's no way you could.
- Yes.
Back in the Enchanted Forest, when Rumplestiltskin told us you were destined to be the Savior, he said you would have to fight the Final Battle.
We thought that meant breaking the original curse.
We We never would have put you through that wardrobe if we knew it was gonna lead to this.
And it's fine.
I'm not gonna lose.
Come on, kid.
Let's go to the library and see if we can find something to decipher exactly what this means.
[Gasps] It's going to be okay, Mom.
I know.
[Door closes] Her story can't end like this.
Hook's trapped in another realm.
Her parents are stuck apart.
She can't go into the Final Battle without her family.
I agree.
But unless you or Snow sleepwalk, Emma's going to have to settle for only one Charming.
Unless you break the curse you put us under.
I know, and I'm working on an antidote.
This kind of magic takes time, testing, and experimenting to be sure.
Testing? You have something? Okay, yes, I may have something, but it could be dangerous or life-threatening.
Our daughter is about to face the biggest fight of her life.
We'll do whatever it takes to be with her.
Now, whatever you have it'll work.
It has to.
I mean, it's not like it's the first curse we've ever woken up from.
Good afternoon, Granny.
It'd be a hell of a lot better if Ruby weren't still sleeping off last night's hangover.
Now I'm putting out the open sign.
These were supposed to be my golden years.
Hi, Marco! [Screw clatters] Look at what you've made me do.
I'm sorry.
Oh, hi, Dr.
- Ah.
- [Dog barking] Oh! [Chuckles] Oh, sorry about Pongo.
He He's in a mood.
He's off gluten.
- Oh! - Ah! Ah! Oh, I'm so sorry, Madame Mayor.
[Exhales sharply] What is so important that you can't pay attention to where you're walking? Well, I was just headed to the hospital to deliver these.
Oh, let me guess.
For John Doe? I like to think it comforts him.
I can get another bunch.
Well, don't waste your money.
It's not like he can tell the difference.
[Gasps] Has there been any news? Has anyone figured out who he is or where his family might be? I'm not sure it really matters.
Why's that? Dr.
Whale said it's beginning to look like he may never wake up.
[Door opens] Sorry I'm late.
I almost didn't come, but then I saw this, and something in me told me I had to bring it to you.
[Heart monitor beeping] Oh, no.
What's happening? What have I done? [Inhales sharply] Snow.
Oh, no, I don't understand.
Where is she? N-N-No! Oh! Where is the Evil Queen? No.
Oh! No, no, no, no, no, no.
You've You're confused.
You've been in a coma.
The Evil Queen's guards They stabbed me.
I-I passed out, and then The curse must have brought us here, whatever this place is.
I'm gonna go get a doctor.
All right.
Whatever she did to you, I know Snow White is in there somewhere.
- Trust me.
- You are delusional and speaking gibberish.
Why would I trust you? Because you love me and I love you.
Come on.
Somewhere inside, you know that.
There you are.
Oh! Are you sure you don't want to tell Emma - what you're doing? - Well, we know what she would say.
She wouldn't let us take the risk.
I agree with David.
We have to do this now.
So, how does this work? Sorry, but this is going to hurt.
[Hearts beating] The curse's magic, split between both halves of your shared heart It's what keeps you from being awake at the same time.
If this potion clears up the darkness, you and Charming will be able to make us all retch with your sweet nothings in no time.
Regina, it's working.
Ohh! What the hell? What happened? The Evil Queen happened.
She must have baked a failsafe in her curse.
Our potion didn't weaken its magic.
- It It weakened your heart.
- What does that mean? It means by the end of the day, you'll both be asleep with no way of waking up.
So, Emma will fight the Final Battle without us.
We need your help.
Who you calling grumpy? No, we don't have time for this.
Round up the other Dwarfs.
Now you're making this about my height? I'm sorry, Leroy.
I accidentally let this patient out of [whispering] the psych ward.
What's wrong with him? It's called a curse for a reason.
I think we're the only ones awake.
It happened the moment I put this by your bed.
I think there's some kind of magic in it.
Put these on.
You need to blend in.
You mean you've been living here since the Dark Curse struck? Well, Mary Margaret has, but I remember every terrible minute of it.
Where is she? Where's Emma? I don't know.
Well, I put her in the wardrobe.
If we're here, she must be here, too.
Uh, Rumplestiltskin if anyone knows how to find her, it's him.
How long ago did he disappear? Do you even know what a coma is? Get to Rumple.
He's our best chance.
If anyone else is awake, it's going to be him.
He has a a store on Main Street called Mr.
Gold's Pawn Shop.
What are you gonna do? Keep Regina from figuring out what's really going on.
There's an abandoned farmhouse at the edge of town.
Meet me there in an hour.
A coma patient doesn't get up and walk out of here without someone seeing something.
Check the tapes again.
You don't need to check them again.
Excuse me, Miss Blanchard? You don't have to check the tapes again, Reg uh, Mayor Mills.
I saw what happened.
John Doe was sleepwalking.
Is that so? Where exactly was he headed? Into the woods, away from town.
The antidote didn't work, David.
It just made things worse.
So, we're going to have to figure out a way to do this thing the way we do everything together.
You did what? We're sorry, Emma.
We were just trying to make things better.
You made it a hell of a lot worse.
You keep blaming yourselves.
It's not your fault.
There's nothing you could have changed.
We know, but that doesn't mean we're gonna let you f-face it on your own.
And you won't.
I think your mother just found a way to break the sleeping curse.
She just didn't realize it.
Flower petals? Those aren't just any petals, Regina.
Pretty boy is right.
Those are Pixie petals.
And Pixie Dust might just be strong enough to wake us up.
Well, I know about magic, and Pixie flowers only grow for one reason in reaction to the presence of great evil.
So, if these flowers just started sprouting up all over Storybrooke I think the Author had the right idea skipping town.
Whoever you're meant to face in this Final Battle They're already here.
[Door opens, bell rings] Black Fairy: Hello, Rumple.
[Laughs evilly] I believe the greeting you're looking for is, "Hello, Mother.
" How did you get here? I had a little help.
So, taking the Savior's power, becoming a hero all a ruse in order to bring her here.
I'm sorry, Father.
She's my mother.
Maybe one day you'll understand.
Wh-What's going on? Belle.
So lovely to make your acquaintance.
Gideon, no matter what you have done to help her, you can always come back to us.
Oh, he's not going anywhere.
We'll soon see about that.
Put it down.
There's a good boy.
Don't look so surprised.
I practically invented Dark Magic.
But worry not.
I won't force you to do anything.
When you join me, it will be because you want to.
Is that why you're here? Because I will never join you.
Oh, when the darkness comes, you'll change your mind.
And then, Rumplestiltskin, we can finally be the family we were always meant to be.
Can I help you with something? [Exhales sharply] I almost didn't recognize you without the scales.
Excuse me? Oh, cut the act.
There is no way you would let yourself fall under the power of Regina's curse when she's still awake.
You don't seem very well.
If you're looking for Dr.
Hopper, his office is just down the street.
All right.
Enough games.
I put my daughter through a wardrobe because you told me it would break the curse.
Now, where is she? I have no idea what you're talking about, and I don't appreciate your tone.
Intimidation won't make me remember something I don't know.
I guess Snow was wrong.
Looks like we're gonna have to find Emma on our own.
Emma? [Bell rings] What a lovely name.
[Bell rings] Perhaps I can help you.
You are awake.
Just needed a proper wake-up call, one that I knew one day would come.
So where is she? Where's my daughter? I know that Emma is destined to break the curse, but I don't know where she is and how she's meant to get back to us.
Think harder.
[Chuckles] Tell me, dearie What was it that woke you from your miserable little life in the first place? It was a flower Snow found.
Its magic woke us.
The Pixie.
Dust from that flower has the ability to reunite anyone who shares true love.
Like Snow and me.
And your daughter.
Emma? Everything okay? Yeah, fine.
You guys draw up the search grid? Yeah, we did, but if we're gonna find that flower before we're both asleep for good, we're gonna need your mother's tracking skills, which means it's time for me to say good night.
How do you do it, Dad? You and Mom have been separated by the curse for weeks, and you still found a way to work together.
Well, even though I can't be with her, I know that she's fighting for me just as hard as I am for her.
Emma, I know Hook is out there doing the same for you.
Thanks, Dad.
[Fire crackling] Aah! Bloody hell.
Look, is this about what happened at Skull Rock? If this were about Skull Rock, I would have left you to be gutted by those Lost Boys.
Look, untie me.
There's someone out there whose life depends on it.
Afraid I can't let you go, not until you agree to do something for me.
Well, perhaps you'd have more luck if you just asked.
And risk getting no for an answer? I need you to deliver this to another realm.
You're still captain of the fastest ship on the seas, aren't you? I'm not your errand boy.
The women I love is in danger, and every second I spend arguing with you should be spent finding a way back to her.
You expect for me to believe that Killian Jones fell in love? This isn't driftwood.
It's a weapon.
And it's the only chance we have of winning the coming war.
Whatever war there is, it isn't mine to fight.
There's a great darkness on the horizon, Hook.
If you don't do what I'm asking, the Savior will die.
The Savior? Yes.
A great hero, unlike you.
Bloody hell, Tiger, we're talking about the same woman.
You fell in love with the Savior? Aye.
Check my inside pocket.
That ring It's for her.
[Exhales sharply] [Laughs] You need to get this to her.
The Black Fairy is in Storybrooke.
This is the only hope the Savior has of defeating her.
I wish it were that simple.
There seems to be a curse keeping me from finding my way back home, unless you have some magic that can lift it.
I don't.
But Pan might.
Where might that demon have kept this magic? In his old camp.
But, Hook, it's overrun by Lost Boys.
They outnumber us 20 to 1.
Aye? Is that all? Then I feel sorry for those lads because they don't stand a chance.
Archie: No sign of him by the water.
Regina: [Sighs] They haven't found him in the South Woods, either.
We should move the search party into town.
We can't go back into town.
And why not? Because John Doe may still be in the woods somewhere.
We haven't looked everywhere.
Miss Blanchard's right.
We haven't checked the mines.
Hopper, why don't you and Pongo go have a look? Okay.
All right.
Come on, Pongo.
Let's go look in the mines.
What are you doing? This tunnel was rigged for demolition years ago.
One push of this button, and it all comes down.
I don't understand.
Why are you doing this? To test a theory of mine.
You and John Doe You're both awake.
Uh, Madame Mayor, I don't know what you're talking about.
I was just doing my normal rounds.
Well, you see, that's exactly what Snow White would say just so she and her prince can stay awake.
But Snow White's also a hero.
She would never let that Cricket die just to protect herself.
Mary Margaret, on the other hand She's never stood up to me.
So what's it going to be? [Suspenseful music playing] Granny: Did you find something? What now? Oh, Madame Mayor, no, eh? Please don't touch that.
It's very dangerous.
Get out of my way.
Where is she? Where's Snow White? The winds were blowing from the North.
The petals had to have come from around here.
Look down there.
Zelena said these flowers only grow in the presence of evil.
So if there's a whole field of them Black Fairy: And here I was hoping to make an entrance.
[Laughs evilly] Stay away from my daughter.
Emma, I've been waiting a very long time to meet you.
So I guess you're the one I fight in the Final Battle.
I created the Dark Curse.
You were born to break it.
We've been destined to clash since the beginning of time.
I never should have sent an emissary to do what only I can.
What the hell does that mean? How did you get here? Right.
Never mind.
So, is this it? Oh, no.
You'll know when the Final Battle begins.
Everyone will.
We won't let you hurt our daughter.
Is that so? Because it's going to be hard to stop me when both Mummy and Daddy are fast asleep.
[Inhales sharply] [Chuckles] Gideon.
Ah, it's better this way.
No mother should have to watch their child die.
[Grunts] [Whooping] [Rhythmic drumbeats] [Sighs] Why is it never past their bloody bedtime? I'm afraid this is the only way you'll get this to the Savior.
What kind of weapon is this? A wand.
Well, part of one.
The most powerful ever made.
It's what banished the Black Fairy to the realm she was trapped in.
Well, how did you get your hands on it? You're not the only one with a past you'd rather forget.
I used to be a Fairy.
What made you give up your wings? I once was close to the Black Fairy.
If anyone should have stopped her from walking down her dark path, it was me.
But I failed.
So after the Fairies banished her, I gave up my wings and sought refuge here.
Well, if a pirate like me can get a second chance, then so can you.
Neither one of us is gonna get a second anything if you don't get that to Emma.
You see that tree in the camp? Its sap contains the magic you'll need to find your way home.
And how am I supposed to make it to the tree, let alone Storybrooke? Leave that to me.
[Whooping and drumbeats continue] Get her! [Whooping] [Indistinct shouting] Ahoy, mate.
[Conch blares] Get me home now! Get that wand to Emma! You know what to do! [Wind whistling] [Door opens] Oh! You're late.
I was worried.
We have to hurry.
Regina's onto us.
It won't be long before she finds out.
Did you bring it? Rumple said its magic is strong enough to lead us to Emma.
Let's go find our daughter.
I'm afraid I can't let you do that.
It appears we've only been cursed for 10 years.
She's still 18 years shy of her 28th birthday, the day she's destined to become the Savior.
No, she doesn't have to be the Savior anymore.
We're awake.
Well, Snow White and Prince Charming may be awake, but the rest of this town is very much asleep.
Find Emma now, and she will never fulfill her destiny, the curse will never be broken, and everyone will be trapped here forever.
What do you expect us to do just leave her out there? Drink this, like I'm going to.
It'll put you back under, and then, when the time is right, Emma will find us.
That's easy for you to say.
You don't have a child who's out there by herself.
You have no idea what's out there for me.
You can't stop us.
You don't have magic in this world.
Here, you're just a man.
I don't need magic to stop you.
You see, this potion is the only way forward.
I swore I would never leave you alone again, and now the Final Battle is coming.
It is my destiny.
There's nothing you can do to change it.
I already told Dad It's not your fault.
Emma, that's not true.
It is our fault.
There's something you don't know.
How did that survive? Because it needed to.
How exactly does this work? I don't know.
Just think about Emma and let the magic do the rest? Oh, she's beautiful.
We can't waste another second.
We can't miss another second.
What? What's wrong? We can't go through there.
Snow, we have to.
If we go through that door, Emma will never become the Savior.
She'll have a new destiny with us.
Don't listen to Rumple.
I'm not.
It's not just Rumple.
Regina tested me earlier today.
She said Snow White is a hero who wouldn't let anyone suffer just to get what she wants.
She's right.
I was prepared to lose everything to save Archie in that mine shaft.
How is this any different? Because our daughter is right there.
We We can't ask her to sacrifice her happiness to ensure everyone else's.
But we have to.
I have lived in this town with everyone we have ever known.
And they're all separated from the people they love, too.
We can't sentence them to this life forever just because we are unwilling to wait just a little bit longer.
But what about Emma? We have to believe that she's strong enough to grow up without us.
Snow, I You know that I'm right.
[Chuckles] How I wish you weren't.
Emma, we will see you again.
[Dog barking in distance] Oh, the search party.
We don't have much time.
[Voice breaking] I didn't think we'd be saying goodbye again so soon.
Hey, hey, I know.
Remember I will always find you.
And one day, Emma will find us.
[Dramatic music playing] Oh.
Archie: Mary Margaret! You found him.
Is he all right? [Exhales sharply] We don't have much time.
Regina, please tell me there's enough.
Barely, but it'll do.
It'll break this sleeping curse once and for all.
What now? The Black Fairy.
She wants to stop us.
Henry: That's not the Black Fairy.
I-It's a shadow.
It's Hook's shadow.
What is this? Where's Hook? There's something wrong.
He's in trouble.
What's going on? Where is he? No.
Mom, it's gonna be okay.
We'll find him.
We don't even know where he is.
Snow: Yes, you do.
This magic can reunite anyone who shares true love.
It can open a door to Hook.
How do you know that? Because we once used Pixie Dust to find you when you were a little girl.
What? If we had gone through with it, Emma, you would have grown up with us.
We would have been a family.
You wouldn't have become the Savior.
You wouldn't be fighting the Final Battle now.
I get it.
You had to do what was right for everyone else before yourselves.
And today, I'm putting you first.
You have a future, someone you love.
I can't.
This is your one chance of breaking the curse.
Hook needs it more than we do.
Eventually you'll find a way to wake us.
We took so much from you.
We can't take him, too not before the Final Battle.
[Dramatic music plays] [Grunts] For your crimes against Pan, the Lost Boys sentence you to death.
Sorry, Captain.
Don't be.
All that matters is that Emma got the wand.
Killian! Emma? What are you doing? Run now! [Grunts] We've got to go! [Indistinct shouting] Lost Boy: Where is she? Where's Tiger Lily? She got away! [Groaning] You all right? - How did you - We got your message.
[Groans] Right here.
[Groans] I'm sorry, Emma.
I should have told you what I did to your grandfather all those years ago, and I should never, never have even considered running away.
It's okay.
I didn't exactly make it easy for you to tell me the truth.
Come on.
Let's get you cleaned up.
There's something I have to do before I get pushed into another portal.
[Grunts] And this time I'm gonna do it the right way.
Swan and I know that you face an uncertain future, but there's one thing that I want you to be certain of that I will always, always be by your side.
[Chuckles] So Emma Swan what do you say? Will you marry me? Yes.
[Chuckles] [Triumphant music playing] Where are your parents? I feel like it's time I finally faced your father.
Bloody hell.
What happened? They went into a sleeping curse so I could save you.
Emma I was thinking.
There might be another way to break it, but it's risky.
Regina: Thank you for coming.
I know living in Storybrooke isn't easy.
I certainly didn't always make it that way.
But I learned something today that, once, Snow and Charming had a chance to leave this town to find their own happiness.
But they chose to stay [exhales sharply] for the good of everyone here.
Now I'm going to ask you to do something for them.
This is a sleeping curse the Evil Queen placed on their shared heart.
It was meant for one heart.
But if we share the curse, we might dilute its power.
Might? I'd be ash right now if it weren't for them.
Cheers, love.
[Exhales heavily] Here goes.
What the hell? I could use a nap.
I'm in.
[Dramatic music playing] David.
You did it.
I didn't do anything.
No! Emma.
- Emma.
- Dad.
You woke us up.
How? It was easy.
We just all shared a tiny bit of your curse.
I take it Emma hasn't told you my secret.
Oh, she did.
And it was a long time ago.
You're a changed man now, Hook.
We've all seen it.
You did it.
Well, it wouldn't have worked if you hadn't inspired all these people.
You gave up your family for them.
And got a bigger one in return.
That's how I know that we'll defeat the Black Fairy, Emma.
No matter what she does, you will not face her alone.
There's never enough time, is there? Whether it's fast or slow or even if it doesn't move at all, but especially when the end is near.
You gave my dagger back Why? As I told you, you're going to choose to be part of this family.
Does it have to do with the fact that Gideon didn't choose you? You think I don't know? You have his heart.
[Chuckles] You were always such a clever boy.
How did you figure it out? You ordered him to destroy the Pixie flowers.
It seems he kept one alive.
A true believer wouldn't do that, now, would he? That's not possible.
He wouldn't disobey me like that.
And yet he did.
He found a way to resist your command because he has his mother in him, the one who truly loves him.
But he won't have to resist anymore.
I will get his heart back.
If you come at me, there may be nothing left of this town when we finish.
Well, I suppose that's a price I'm willing to pay.
