Once Upon a Time s06e22 Episode Script

The Final Battle Part 2

Previously on "Once Upon a Time" The Evil Queen sent everyone from the Enchanted Forest here.
That's what you're going with? It's true.
- How long will you be with us? - A week.
It's your destiny.
You're gonna bring back the happy endings.
I do hope you like apples.
It's poison.
You may not believe in the curse, but I believe in you.
Henry! Every story in this book actually happened.
Goodbye, Emma.
Henry, you were right about the curse.
I should've believed you.
I love you, Henry.
This might be the most important mission yet Operation Best Man.
Wake up.
Wake up, honey.
Wake up.
What is it, Father? It's time.
They found us.
Don't be frightened.
It'll be all right.
I'll stay behind, give you time to escape.
No, I won't leave you.
I'll help you fight.
No, no.
You can't.
You have to make sure it stays safe.
You have it, don't you? Of course.
It never leaves my side.
Oh, good.
It may be the realm's only hope of defeating the darkness.
I will guard it with my life.
It won't come to that.
Now, come on.
You need to get to safety.
You need to share these stories.
But who will believe them? Someday someone will.
Daddy! Don't worry about me.
You need to go! I I know.
I know.
Me too.
Go! Go! The Black Fairy's curse! It's here! Where do you think it's taking us? Doesn't matter.
Wherever we end up, we're gonna win.
Archie! Hey, Archie! What happened here?! What's going on? What did the Black Fairy's curse do? Really, Henry? Black Fairy? Curse? Henry, I-I-I thought we were past all this.
She's done something to you, to to everyone.
Henry, um do I need to schedule another appointment? - Where is she? - Who? You know who.
Where's my mom? Henry you know exactly where Emma is.
She's in the same place that she's been for the last two years.
Emma? You have a visitor.
Your son.
Thank God you remember me.
Of course I remember you.
Good, 'cause I just looked all over town, and I couldn't find the rest of our family Snow, David, Hook.
- No, no.
- What? I'm not going down that road again.
I've worked way too hard for you to undo my progress.
Progress? You know what I mean.
Those people Snow White, Prince Charming, Captain Hook none of them are real.
My parents are not fairy-tale characters.
No one in Storybrooke is.
There's no curse.
This is just a regular town.
Mom what happened to you? What happened to me is I'm getting better.
I ended up in this nuthouse because I believed you back then, bought into all of it.
No, this is the Black Fairy.
She said she would take away your family, and this is how.
- She cursed you.
- No! No more curses.
I just want to get well so that maybe Maybe I can be your mother.
How long have you been a patient here? You know how long I've been here.
Maybe it'll help if you relive it.
Ever since you tried to prove that fairy tales were real by eating a poisoned apple turnover.
You ended up in the hospital for weeks.
You barely made it through.
No, that's not how it happened.
Don't you remember? I did eat the turnover, but you fought a dragon and woke me with true love's kiss.
- Oh, my God.
Henry, stop! - You woke me, a-and you This is crazy.
You're the one who's supposed to be getting better.
- Don't go back.
- But it's true.
Henry, you were not saved by a kiss.
That's ridiculous.
You were saved by medicine, by Dr.
Whale and by hospital.
It's time.
Stop it.
You can't take that.
You can't take anything.
It might be how the Black Fairy is keeping you from remembering.
Henry, just let me - Look.
- Oh.
This page I wrote It means that the Final Battle is coming.
The key to winning it is in here.
But we can't do that until you start believing.
Sorry about him.
You have to stop doing that, or your mother's not gonna let you keep visiting me.
She's here? Who's Regina? Henry.
There's my boy.
Madame Mayor, I'm sorry.
I didn't know he was coming today.
How many times have I told you? It's Fiona.
No need for titles here.
Now, Henry shouldn't you be at school? Of course.
I just wanted to see my other mom.
What's that? Where did you find that? Oh, no.
I think I'll hold onto this.
Nothing but trouble seems to come from this book.
Now, Henry, back to school.
I'll see you at dinner.
Emma and I have some business to discuss.
Okay, Mom.
Whatever she wants you to do, don't do it.
Now then I think somebody needs to take their medicine.
Yeah, I'm okay.
Emma? Emma?! She's gone.
The fairy she's as good as her word.
She ripped us apart.
Ripped us apart?! Where the blazes are we?! This is our palace.
What now? We're in the Enchanted Forest.
Well, she has panache, I'll give her that.
She took you from your wedding to theirs.
This is where we got married.
Right before we were cursed.
Henry? Henry?! Henry?! - Hey.
- Where is he? We'll find him.
If she thinks she can rip this family apart curses have never stopped us before.
Today will be no different.
We'll get Emma and Henry back.
Wherever they may be.
Hey, guys.
I'm fine, really.
Uh, all due respect, Emma, but you do seem quite agitated.
- Not at all.
- Are you sure, dear? Yes, really.
Everything is okay.
Well, I just came to check on your progress.
As mayor of Storybrooke, can you blame me for taking a keen interest in all of our residents? All of your "troubled" residents.
All due respect, Dr.
Hopper and Madame Mayor, I know exactly what this is really about.
Do you now? Henry.
Oh, yes.
Well, you are his biological mother, and he is my son, so perhaps there is a bit more to my interest.
I don't think that's any secret.
- I feel so loved.
- Uh, sarcasm aside, Emma has been doing quite well of late.
Hopper's reports are very encouraging.
I don't think I'm talking out of school to say you might be eligible for release soon.
Wouldn't it be nice to paint a different view than these dreary, old hospital grounds? We are working on the landscaping.
Perhaps even the Boston skyline? As I recall, you had a lovely apartment overlooking it all.
Wouldn't it be nice to go back? Yeah.
It would be nice.
Because it's not just your well-being that I'm concerned with.
It's Henry's.
He's clearly still clinging to the delusion that these stories are real.
Now, I'd hoped we were past all that.
But now, thanks to you, I have a 14-year-old boy - who still believed in fairy tales.
- Hey! Madame Mayor, please.
This is terribly delicate.
I just get so emotional when it comes to my son.
I never meant to do any harm.
Of course you didn't.
But as luck would have it, his book has given me an idea of how we could cure him of all of this nonsense.
What are you talking about? What do you want me to do? Burn it.
Show him that you've truly embraced reality and then he will.
Because belief in something, something that isn't real, can be dangerous.
I'm sorry.
No? Look, I know all these stories are fake, but I can't destroy this.
It means so much to Henry.
He'd be crushed.
Well, that's the point to crush his delusions and yours.
I I'm not ready for that.
Really? You might not be ready now, but you will be.
Of that, I am quite certain.
Hopper will hold onto it until that day comes.
And it will because, Miss Swan until you're ready to destroy the book and make a clean break from this fantasy world, you'll remain locked up.
- Emma! - Emma! - Oh, that bitch.
- She's taunting us.
Get her back.
It's your mirror.
Which she is controlling.
Why? What is she doing? It's the Final Battle.
The Final Battle? In a nuthouse? Well, clearly, it wasn't what we thought it was.
Her soul.
She's the Savior.
Of course the Final Battle isn't a war.
It's a battle for her soul, for her belief, her hope.
I don't get it.
What does she gain if Emma stops believing? I think I might know.
What is she doing here? Helping, thank you very much.
The Mad Hatter's hat.
W-Wasn't it destroyed? Well, he was a hatter.
He had multiples.
Inside are portals to every realm.
I used it to escape Oz.
Escape? Why did you need to escape your own realm? Look, there isn't much time.
It's easier if I show you.
If you want to know what we were running from take a gander.
There's nothing there.
I can see that.
When I left Oz, it was falling apart Apocalyptic, but now - It's erased.
- Like it never existed.
What the bloody hell does this got to do with Emma? This is what she's doing.
It's why she wants Emma to destroy the book.
As the Savior's belief fades so do all the realms of story.
If we don't stop the Black Fairy all the realms will be destroyed and everyone in them.
Who's here, Papa? Just checking everything is as it should be.
You know what they say A mayor's work is never done.
Madame Mayor an honor.
I brought you lunch, and a little job if you'll take it.
My wristwatch stopped.
Guess I'm not good for timepieces.
We'll figure out that clock tower one day.
Don't worry.
And I'll get working on the watch right away.
Thank you.
- Thanks for lunch.
- Mm-hmm.
Your favorite oatmeal raisin cookies are in there, too.
Oh, thank you.
You're very kind, always thinking of Gideon.
Well, when someone's lost their mother I feel a need to step into that void.
And how are you doing? I know this time of year can be difficult.
It is hard, thinking of Belle on our anniversary given what happened.
Yes, it's terribly sad.
So sad.
Thank you.
Well, I'll be back for the watch later.
I always know I can count on you.
And please if there's anything I can do.
After all, for my boys I'm always here to help.
I saw someone from Arendelle just now.
They still had snow on their shoulders.
What? How far is this nightmare spreading? Far.
Jasmine, Aladdin? It hit Agrabah whatever it is.
We barely got our people out.
What's going on? The Black Fairy's doing this all the way from Storybrooke.
She's attacking Emma's belief.
The more she loses faith, the realms of story fade away.
We need to get back there and stop all this.
What about the portal we just came through, the hat? It can't make a passage to a land without magic.
We need something else.
I have it.
I mean, I think I have it.
I might have a theory where to look.
- We don't need theories.
- So, you don't want my help? Well, all due respect, Captain, but what we need right now is magic.
And that's my area.
It's time I get to work and do what I do best.
We need to get out of this hat and back to my castle.
I don't care what kind of magic it takes, I'm getting Henry and Emma back.
Henry? What the hell? How'd you get in here? Dr.
Hopper really needs to keep an eye on his wallet.
- Come on.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
You serious? A jailbreak, kid? You don't belong here.
And no matter what the mayor says, she's never letting you out.
But I am.
Welcome to Operation Cuckoo's Nest.
I haven't seen the movie in a long time, but didn't that end with a lobotomy? Just We have to get out of here before the nurse comes back.
Come on.
We have to go.
Come on! Bloody hell.
It's taller than I remembered.
Hey! Next time you sneak off on a secret mission, you might want to make sure there's no Munchkins around.
They're easily bought.
Honestly, stealth wasn't a priority Speed was.
So this is your theory on how to get home, huh? Hoping there's a magic bean up there? There's only one way to find out.
Hook, that beanstalk's over 1,000 feet high.
You really think you can climb that alone? I think I want to get back to my wife.
But making her a widow is not what I'd call a good plan.
You're gonna get yourself killed.
I'll have you know I've scaled this before.
Really? When? With Emma.
It was our first adventure together, though my motives were less than chivalrous then.
Yeah, I seem to recall you trying to kill her and Snow.
Granted, it was hardly love at first sight.
But things changed.
- We changed.
- I know, but Look, we made each other better! All right? Emma and I were never a predestined love story, guaranteed a happy ending.
We fought for our love, and we won.
And you You of all people should understand that.
But now you saw into that mirror.
She doesn't even remember who I am.
So, yes, I'm gonna climb this beanstalk, and I am gonna find that bean because I'm not gonna lose everything I have just because some bitter fairy cast another bloody curse! Our story began on the beanstalk, and I'll be damned if it ends there, too.
All right.
You're scared of losing Emma.
I get that.
Just take a deep breath.
All right, calm down.
Let's go get that bean together.
Come on.
I've got to show you something.
Okay, well, unless we're waiting for a helicopter, I think we went the wrong way.
We're here because this is the last place you saw your family.
The last place you remembered who you really are The Savior.
Mom, it's true.
Henry, you have to accept these things are not real.
And bringing me to some rooftop is not gonna convince me that my mother is Snow White.
But she is.
And this isn't just some rooftop.
This is where you married your true love yesterday.
My true love? Sorry, kid.
That's not the way the world works.
It does, and it did for you.
You married Captain Hook right here.
Captain Hook? Who officiated Tinker Bell? No.
Jiminy Cricket.
It was amazing! The aisle was right here where your parents gave you away.
The only time they gave me away was when I was a baby.
Mom, stop it.
They walked you to the altar.
That's where you exchanged vows, in front of all your friends and family who love you.
This is it.
Mom, come on! What happened? Mom, did you see something? I don't know.
That's a yes.
It worked.
I knew it.
Henry, I don't know what I saw.
I've been in a mental hospital for years.
It's not like my brain is really trustworthy right now.
This is the curse.
She wants you to doubt yourself.
But you can't give in.
You have to fight.
I don't want to fight.
I want to go home to Boston.
Storybrooke is your home.
But, Henry, you're right.
If I stay here, Fiona's just gonna lock me up again.
And that's not good for me or you.
Y-You can't leave.
It's not for forever.
I'll come back, I promise.
I just need to get out of here for a while and lay low.
But you got to wait.
You'll be safer if you leave after dark.
I know where Dr.
Hopper keeps your car keys.
- I can get them for you.
- Seriously? A few seconds ago, you were trying to keep me here.
Now you're gonna help me leave? You're my mom.
I'll always want to help you.
And you're right.
You don't deserve to be locked up again.
Thanks, kid.
Meet me back in an hour, and after that, I promise you'll have the life you always wanted.
"To my son, Gideon.
Remember to be strong and true.
I will always love you.
" Gideon I know it's not easy to talk about Belle.
But this book meant the world to her, and she really wanted you to have it.
I know.
So I would always remember how much she loved me.
Yeah, well Fiona's been more of a mother to me than she ever was.
How much do you remember? A-About when she left? Only what you told me.
I was just a baby.
She said she was going to the store, and she never came back.
Yeah, well, you know, I-I-I've been thinking, and, um well, maybe we don't know the whole story.
Your mother wouldn't just leave not without good reason.
Will you stop with this? She walked out on us.
Don't try to rationalize it away.
She didn't love us.
No, I-I-I can't accept that.
She would never do that.
But she did.
And you know what? We don't need her to have a happy life.
We have everything we need right here in this shop.
You just you refuse to see it.
Your mother loved you, Gideon.
And no matter what may have happened between us she would always want to be a part of your life.
Please, just leave it alone.
Lizard horn? Nope.
All gone.
How is that possible? I had tons of it.
It's all gone.
All my things are gone! Somebody's stolen from me! Well, it can't be any of the new people.
- They just got here.
- Well, then, who is it? Oh, goody.
I think we're about to find out.
I am so going to enjoy this.
Who the hell is in my house?! Regina? You're back.
I-I'm back? You're back.
Well, this is disappointing.
So, you're the one who's been squatting in my castle? I'm not "squatting" anywhere.
This is the Evil Queen's castle, after all.
Nice outfit, by the way.
We really do make it look good, don't we? Thanks.
I-I mean w-what are you doing here? I thought you were in that Wish Realm with Robin.
Well, I was.
But there was one little thing you neglected to mention before sending me off to my fabulous new home.
Everyone there thinks I murdered Snow and Charming.
And my own son was trying to kill me.
So, after three days of angry villagers trying to burn my home, I decided to find a new place to live.
What about Robin? Hmm? Did you murder him, too? Of course not.
He's out with Friar Tuck.
And I don't murder anymore, Zelena.
Robin and I have turned over a new leaf.
We now steal from the rich and give to the poor.
Well, mostly anyway.
Sounds delightful.
Look, can we get back to saving the world now? You know, while there's still one to save.
Yes, um w-we're having a bit of a fairy problem.
Do tell.
Yes? She did what? Henry.
Hey, Mom.
There's no reason to pretend, Henry.
We both know I'm not your mother.
So, you know I'm awake.
I know everything.
What are you gonna do? Put me in the crazy house, too? Of course not.
You're much more useful to me out here.
What's that mean "useful"? Turns out, getting a Savior to give up her belief is much harder than I thought.
Even if you take everything away from her, which I have, there's still that one last pesky speck of belief that just refuses to die out.
And it never will.
- Henry - Stay away from me.
- Come back.
- No.
My mom's strong.
She'll fight it, and there's nothing you can do to stop that.
You're right.
There is nothing I can do to stop it.
But there is something you can do.
Madame Mayor, what happened? There was an accident.
Henry broke into his doctor's office, had a nasty fall down the stairs.
Oh, I'm so sorry.
I just don't know how this could be.
They say that he's stable, but it was such a tumble.
He has to be all right.
He has to be.
He'll pull through.
The boy is resilient.
Thank you.
But that's not the only reason for your visit, is it? I know this is poor timing, but there's something I need to discuss with you.
Yes, the timing is poor.
Perhaps we can chat about it later over my infamous black pudding.
Gideon, too, of course.
I need you to reopen the investigation into Belle's disappearance.
You and Gideon lead such charmed lives.
Why tear open old wounds? Well, they never properly healed.
Gideon may hide it well enough, but I know he's he's hurting inside.
He needs to know the truth.
Belle wouldn't just abandon him for no reason.
Come with me.
Well, it appears we have some ground to cover.
Well, it's got to be in here somewhere.
Maybe it's up there.
Well, that shouldn't be too difficult.
Apart from the fact that that's way up there, and we're way down here.
Come on.
You just climbed a beanstalk.
What's some oversized furniture? It's not the furniture I'm worried about.
It's its oversized owners.
I thought the giants were gone.
It appears some have stayed.
- Let's not dawdle.
- Yeah.
Oh, what are we doing? You can't pull yourself up there.
- You only have one hand.
- I'm a pirate.
You don't think I've swung from masts before? I'm doing this.
She's your daughter, but she's my wife.
No arguments.
It has to be me.
Okay, you're right.
I am? Yeah.
So, you're gonna trust all of our fates to a pirate? No.
I'm gonna trust my son in-law.
Thank you.
Is everything all right up there? This place is a bloody obstacle course.
- You need help? - No, I'm fine.
I think I just might have found something.
What was that? Just, uh retrieving the the bean! Bloody hell.
I think I just woke up the giants! Hook, I think it's worse than giants.
Don't tell me you're afraid of a little fire.
That's not fire.
Run! So, yes.
I haven't been completely honest.
The police did find evidence of what happened to Belle.
I just wanted to save you and Gideon the heartbreak.
Well she wanted to see the world.
Just not with you, it would appear.
Look, I must be frank with you, for your sake as well as Gideon's.
You're the one that caused him all this pain, not Belle.
She left because you could never be the man she wanted you to be.
But you can still be the man your son needs you to be by accepting that and moving on.
Thank you.
This was, uh illuminating.
Oh, Henry.
What do you know? Henry! What happened? Are you okay? Mom? He was trying to steal this.
Then he tried to escape and had a nasty fall.
You lied to me.
You said you were done with all this.
She's the one that's lying.
I didn't fall.
She pushed me.
She wants to destroy your belief.
He's confused Concussed, according to Dr.
Look, I pulled this from the security camera.
Put aside the fact that he's my own son How could I push him if I wasn't even touching him? She used magic.
Kid, there's no such thing as magic.
True belief is believing even if you can't see.
Here, just look at the book.
- Just touch it.
- Henry, enough.
- Touch it! - Okay, fine.
All right, Henry.
I'm I'm touching the book.
It it didn't work.
I'm sorry, but you're not a kid anymore.
This isn't some daring rescue operation.
It's real life.
Mom please.
It was just his arm this time.
Next time, what if it's his neck or worse? This is the apple turnover all over again.
He's hurting himself to make you believe his delusions.
This is all my fault.
It has to stop.
Then you know what you have to do.
Mom, you can't destroy it.
You just have to believe in me.
Kid, just 'cause you believe something doesn't make it true.
That's exactly what makes it true.
Deep down, you know that.
What I know, Henry, is that I love you.
And that's why I have to do this.
Don't go.
This is it.
This is the Final Battle.
Henry, I'm sorry.
Mom! What was that?! Was it the dragon?! I don't think so.
I think we got a bigger problem than a dragon! Go on, dear.
Only you can save our son now, Emma.
Go on.
I think we may be too late.
We better get a move on! Go! Your father wouldn't want you in tears.
Not on his behalf.
Tiger Lily.
What happened here? Where is Father? I don't know.
But I do know that it's clear he fought valiantly so you could escape.
I never should've left.
I should've fought with him! No.
You were right to follow his instructions.
Because you did, the book is safe.
We need to take it to your mother now.
She'll be waiting.
But what about Father? You'll be reunited one day.
I promise.
The Fairies have foreseen it.
They have? W-We're going to be okay? The future is cloudy, but you will be reunited.
After that you just need to learn the lesson imparted by this book.
Never lose hope.
It it can't be.
Well, I'm afraid it is.
Your Story Book.
Or what's left of it.
No way.
My mom would never burn it.
Oh, but she did.
Whatever last bit of belief she clung to went up in smoke, just like the pages of your precious book.
Not even you could destroy her belief completely.
If that's so, then why is she packing for Boston at this very moment? I'll stop you.
Oh, haven't you already tried that? Look where it got you.
It's not just me.
It's my family.
We won't let you win.
Oh, haven't I mentioned the consequences of Emma's lost belief? Your family isn't going to exist long enough to save themselves, let alone your mother.
Hurry, mate! Yeah, I know! Aah! Hook! Aah! Hoooook! Aah! Charming.
Something's wrong.
Where? I'll get us there.
I don't know.
Then let's go find him.
David! David?! David! David! Hello there, mummy.
"Mummy?" Oh, there was a There was a wedding.
And yeah, that is still going to take some getting used to.
Uh, what happened? Well, first, I fell, and then and then it fell, but we managed to get this.
Great! Where's David? You mean he's not here? David?! - He was on that? - David?! We should start searching.
- This beanstalk goes on for miles.
- No, you're getting back to the castle.
Take the bean.
Get to Emma and Henry.
Don't worry about David.
I'll find him.
The realms are disappearing.
We don't have much time.
Get to Emma.
It's important.
Make her believe again.
So it's true.
You're really leaving Storybrooke.
It's what's best for both of us, kid.
Don't you get it? This is what she wants.
The Black Fairy cast the curse so all this would get you to leave.
This is why I have to go, because you still believe this nonsense is true.
- It is.
- Henry, stop.
Don't get me wrong.
I am so happy you found me.
And I'm so happy I got to know my son.
But it's so clear now.
Coming to Storybrooke wasn't good for either of us.
You're wrong.
Look where I ended up.
Look at you.
Look at your arm.
It sent us on a dangerous path.
I got to get back to Boston and back to my life.
And so do you.
She did it.
You really don't believe? There's nothing to believe.
Goodbye, kid.
I love you.
You might not think this story's true.
But I know that it is.
And it can still have a happy ending.
Hello? Hey, Swan, I got your message.
- You back? - Yeah, I'm back.
Ready to go to work? 'Cause I got a guy who jumped bail a perfect mark for your "first date" trick.
What do you say? Sounds good.
And you left Snow behind? But I have the bean.
And that's the priority getting back home to Emma, to Henry.
She'll find David.
She always does.
Well, we have a problem.
What the devil happened to it? Emma.
Her lack of belief.
It's sapping the magic from everything here.
Well, can't you fix it? Make it work? Well, I can't.
I'm I don't have enough power.
Of course you do, sis.
With a little help from, well, yourself.
The Evil Queen.
Your evil half is here? Well, she's not evil.
Not completely.
And yes, she's here.
And you trust here? Well, of course I do.
She's me.
And remember, Henry's her son, too.
David! David! No, no, no! No, no! Please, no! Please, no! Please, no! No.
You found me.
Did you ever doubt I would? Truthfully, the beanstalk that fell on me gave me pause.
Snow, we're gonna be fine.
Darkness never wins.
It just fools you into thinking it does.
I love you, Charming.
I love you, Snow.
Let's go.
Gold? And where do you think you're going to, young man? That room is off limits to customers.
I'm not a customer.
I'm your grandson.
Is that so? Yep.
You must've hit your head pretty badly.
Now, if you don't mind, I got work to do, so please.
You're awake.
I know what magic looks like.
What are you up to, Grandpa? Clever under any circumstances, aren't you, my boy? Why have you been pretending? Because, believe it or not, I didn't entirely trust my mother when she cast the curse.
And, as usual, I was right not to.
Our agreement wasn't to put me in this pathetic circumstance here without Belle.
She betrayed me.
What are you planning? To find out her true intentions.
She told me Belle was off to see the world, but I know better.
She'd keep her here for leverage, just in case.
Well, Belle's gonna have to wait.
Everyone back in the Enchanted Forest is in danger because the Black Fairy made Emma stop believing.
You got to help me save my family.
Our family.
And then we can find Belle.
I'm sorry, Henry, you're on your own.
All I care about right now is Belle.
But if you're not gonna help, at least let me take something that can help me.
And what exactly did you have in mind? Actually there's two things.
So, uh, I'm not sure if any of you on the other side are listening, but if you are, I'm sorry.
I tried my best to keep Emma from losing belief, but it wasn't good enough.
But that doesn't mean I'm going down without a fight.
If Emma's not around to take on the Black Fairy, then I will.
He's going alone.
But how could he win against her if Emma couldn't? He's a tough boy.
Get that bean working now.
I'm sorry, Regina, but even with our magic combined, it will still take time.
We don't have time.
It's on the outskirts of the forest and moving fast.
The magic's almost here.
" I'm afraid that's a bit of an understatement.
It is here.
Let's round everyone up, get them to safety.
What the hell are you doing? I'm going to hold it off as long as I can.
You'll die! It'll give you a chance to get to the courtyard.
Go to the center of the castle.
You can survive long enough there to get the bean to work.
You just need time.
Let me give that to you.
He's my son, too.
He needs at least one of us.
Everyone, to the center, quickly! Close together! Not so fast.
You came back.
I did, kid.
Does that mean you you remember? I found the book you left.
I was about to take another job and and then I thought about this woman you wrote about who was a hero with a family and a Savior who never ran from a battle and You.
Well, I'm not sure that it's me, Henry, but, um but it's who I want to be.
So I don't remember all the crazy stuff you told me, but I believe it.
What happened? Emma.
She's back! Belle? Belle? I don't want to leave! I don't want to leave! Please! Belle.
How do you know my name? I can explain if you give me a chance.
Just leave me alone, okay? I'm safe here.
Belle, I know this is difficult to understand but you're not like this.
The Black Fairy did this to you.
Changed you.
I promise you, the woman who did this, I am gonna make her pay.
Madame Mayor, what's wrong? Are you here to pick up your watch? No, I'm not here for my watch.
I'm here because Emma Swan is back.
Uh, sorry.
I don't understand.
Are you all right? Do you need something? Indeed I do.
There's a Fairy wand in this shop.
My Fairy wand.
And I need it back now.
A Fairy wand? Perhaps I should call my father.
He'll know what to do.
Drop it! Now.
The last thing I need is Gold getting involved.
Why did I do that? I didn't want to do that.
Despite what your father thinks, I still have your heart.
You have to do whatever I say.
So start looking for that wand now.
What is that? The runes that Henry scribbled.
It's an ancient language long lost to time.
I need the wand to translate it.
It holds the key to winning the Final Battle.
Is this what you were looking for? Yes.
Yes, it is.
It's been centuries since I felt its power.
Time to go to work, Gideon.
Hello, Mr.
I was just here to pick up my watch.
No, you weren't Mother.
Of course.
You know, I only separated you from Belle for your own good.
She's my wife.
And a terrible one.
She would convince you to go against your dark instincts.
I couldn't let that happen.
But once the Final Battle is won, the curse on Belle and Gideon will be lifted, and I will have unchecked powers.
Not even the laws of magic will apply.
I can make them love you without you having to give up being the Dark One.
Don't you realize? You can finally have it all.
No I can't.
I won't trust you.
All you care about's yourself.
I care about you! Always have! And I worked tirelessly to reunite us! And now we can be a family again.
And not just with Belle and Gideon.
What do you mean by that? With my new powers, I can bring back the dead.
Like Baelfire.
Your first son that you lost.
All your desires can be had.
Your magic will really allow us to have it all? Without a doubt.
Well, there's just one problem.
All magic comes with a price.
And I'm no longer willing to pay it.
You will not be winning any battle.
And you are gonna suffer for what you did to Belle and Gideon.
You may think that you can stop me, but that doesn't mean the Final Battle is over.
After all, I'm not the one who's going to kill the Savior.
That's what I learned from the runes.
Darkness can't snuff out the light.
It's not strong enough.
Only light can snuff out light.
You have his heart.
And I commanded him to kill the Savior.
Not even my death can stop that.
In fact, I suspect it would ensure it.
Well there's only one way to find out.
I remember.
Just in time, Savior.
Go! Rumple? Belle.
I'm awake.
The curse is broken.
When I killed her.
You killed your mother? W-Where's Gideon? I don't know.
Still under her control.
But I think I know who to ask.
C-Can you stop him? I don't intend to stop him.
I intend to save him.
You don't want to do this.
You can't win.
But I also can't give up.
Henry! Let's go.
Go! - You did it.
- Kinda.
That won't hold very long.
It's okay.
The Black Fairy's got his heart.
Gold's gonna get it.
Everything's gonna be fine.
I appreciate your optimism, kid, but we got to go.
You think his heart's down here? I know my mother.
This is where she'd hide it.
- If I find it - Aah! Belle, you all right? My ankle.
I think it's twisted.
- Well, let me fix it.
- No, no! Just go ahead.
We're racing against the clock.
I'll only slow you down.
Save Emma! Save our son! Can you see him? We lost him.
But he won't be far behind.
I'm so sorry that I ever doubted you.
I know.
It's okay.
It was the curse.
I'm just happy it's broken.
We are, too.
Oh, Dad.
Some honeymoon, huh? Oh, we'll get there.
We'll get there.
She left him with one last command.
Kill you no matter what.
Well, then we'll kill him.
It's a trap.
If Gideon kills Emma, then light will be destroyed.
And if Emma kills him, then she'll darken herself and light will be destroyed anyway.
You don't have to kill him.
Just hold him off until Gold gets his heart.
Well, there's no holding him off.
But she is right.
It's a trap, and it's perfect.
No matter what, darkness wins.
I'm not telling you to give up.
You can't.
Emma, you of all people should know, there's always a third way.
Remember when you first came to Storybrooke? We hated each other.
- Regina.
- No, it's true.
I was Henry's mother, but you said you were.
And we fought.
And oh, boy, did we ever fight.
But you found a third way.
We were both his mother.
Earlier today, I saw my evil half be selfless.
She saved us all.
I never saw that coming.
Just like however you're going to get out of this, you haven't seen yet.
But you will.
Sounds like you're talking about hope.
Something you taught me all those years ago when you didn't give up on me.
What should I do? You'll know when the time comes.
I'm afraid that time has indeed come.
- Son of a bitch! - Dad, stop! I got this.
Let her go.
There's your heart, Gideon.
Now let's save you.
Let's stop you.
But why would you stop him? Now, remember what Mother said.
"With the death of the Savior, you can have it all.
" You're nothing but a devil on my shoulder.
Doesn't mean to say I'm wrong, dearie.
This is our last chance to finally get everything.
Love and power.
All you have to do now is put the heart down and let our boy finish his mission.
I won't betray my family.
I will do the right thing.
I was destined to become the Savior.
And now you're fated to change magic! In this new world, we will make the rules.
Belle wants to see the world.
Well, go on.
Spend 100 years seeing it, then 100 years wrecking it.
It won't be real.
Gideon, stop.
Do not kill Emma Swan.
Did you really think it was gonna be that easy? This is the Black Fairy's spell we're talking about here! You may want to do the right thing, but as we all know, we can't always get what we want.
Now, can we? No one's going to save you.
No one needs to save me! I'm the Savior! I'm fighting for the people I love.
Ultimately, I am a hero.
I am hope.
I am light! And light cannot destroy darkness.
It can only create more light.
I will not kill innocents! I will do what all saviors must! I will give hope no matter what the cost.
No! I'm sorry, Emma.
I was hoping you'd save us both.
I failed you, Belle.
I failed our family.
I made the right choice.
It just didn't work out.
I love you.
I love you, too.
I love you, too! Is that It's Gideon.
A fresh start.
A happy ending.
A happy beginning.
Henry! I think this belongs to you.
"When Good and Evil both did the right thing, faith was restored.
The final battle was won.
" That's it.
That's all? No "The End"? No.
'Course not.
Because this isn't the end.
I mean, maybe of this book, but it isn't the end, end.
So what now? Now? Now we get to see what's next.
Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a powerful thing, but living with that kind of belief that's the most powerful thing of all.
That's hope.
So you asked, "What now?" Now we get to keep going on.
We get to keep doing what we love with the people we love.
An ending isn't happiness.
Being together is.
Hmm? Ready for a new adventure? Uh hello? Hi.
Are you Henry Mills? Yeah.
Who are you? My name's Lucy.
I'm your daughter.
I don't have a daughter.
Yeah, you do.
Now come on.
Your family needs you.
