Once Upon a Time s07e12 Episode Script

A Taste of the Heights

1 Previously on "Once Upon a Time" This Ruby is going to set me free.
See you soon, Princess.
You will not be casting this curse.
I know.
You're going to cast it.
What? Henry! What did you do to him? What witches do best poisoned him.
What's going on? ELOISE: To resurrect a life another must be taken in its place.
No, stop.
Stop.
[GROANS] Mother! [INHALES SHARPLY] HENRY: Every story comes to an end But who gets to decide when that is? Or whose story it really is, anyway? [THUNDER RUMBLES] I came to Hyperion Heights to unravel a mystery.
What drove a powerful real-estate developer to try to buy up an entire neighborhood? [GLASSES CLINK] What deals did she have to make? And what other secrets was she keeping? These questions continue to haunt this neighborhood even after her untimely and tragic death.
I've tried to answer these questions myself.
But every stone I uncover just leads to another stone.
And then there's the most important question of all What could possibly happen next? I invite you to join me to find out.
Welcome to H-Town.
[LAUGHS] Wow! I gotta say, I'm impressed, Sabine.
- Oh! Oh! - Sabine! - J? I'm sorry.
- [LAUGHS] I was just listening to Henry's podcast.
He just dropped the first episode with the interview you did.
Oh, "H-Town.
" How was it? I gotta admit, he's cooking up a pretty good mystery.
And just so you know, you two are some of the main ingredients.
Cool.
Isn't that cool, Mom? Yeah, baby, it is.
- Mnh! - [LAUGHS] And speaking of cool, tonight's the night Taste of the Heights is happening.
[BOTH LAUGH] A food fair in an abandoned skate park? Oh, that's so cool! Yeah, it's definitely different.
I mean, I can't argue with the hipsters, though.
They love their niche marketing.
And also beards, for some reason.
Well, you're gonna blow them away.
Look, are you sure you don't need our help? Lucy, Aunt Sabine is a bit of a - Perfectionist.
- Control freak.
- Whoa, hey! Whoa.
- [LAUGHS] It's true.
Look, okay, it's not that I do not trust you two.
- Hmm.
- I just I know how I like things.
And anyway, you you two, you have all this time to make up for, right? You should be spending it together.
Maybe curled up on a couch, playing some board games? Couldn't you both use a nice, quiet day at home? What do you say, Lucy, huh? Family day, just the two of us? Why not make it three? Three? Henry come on, he never left my bedside.
And don't you think it's time maybe we invited him over so we can thank him? I mean, Lucy's right, J.
The man did step up.
What more are you waiting for? Let me think about it.
That means yes.
[LAUGHS] And, hey, you are gonna be great tonight.
By tomorrow, you are gonna be crowned the Food Truck Queen of the Heights.
Ooh, "Queen"? I like the sound of that.
[LAUGHS] Stunning, Your Majesty.
All you're missing now is your crown.
Yes, well, I recommend you put it on and step outside.
There's quite a crowd waiting for a glimpse of their new queen.
Okay.
How do you feel? Nervous.
Oh, don't be.
After heading the resistance to defeat Tremaine, you've proven you're a leader.
I have to agree with your friends, Tiana.
If only your father were here, he'd be so proud.
- [WHOOSH] - MAN: Indeed, he would be.
Of course, he's not the only one.
[CHUCKLES] Enchanté, Princess.
Dr.
Facilier, what are you doing here? Did you really think I'd miss your coronation? After everything we've been through? [SCOFFS] Oh, speaking of How lovely to see you again, Regina.
I wish I could say the same.
I'd heard rumors you'd gone soft, Regina.
What a shame they appear true.
Get out now.
Or I'll prove just how wrong you are.
Oh, perhaps I am.
But there's no need for threats.
After all, I came to deliver a gift.
[WHOOSH] A glimpse into our soon-to-be queen's future.
Before that crown sits upon your head, you'll have to face a test.
Oh, a terrible beast will threaten the peace of your entire kingdom.
I know your tricks.
You're lying.
You're just trying to get under my skin.
Go to the ferry docks on the southern edge of the bayou, and see if I'm lying.
You may not trust me now, but you will then.
[EXHALES SOFTLY] Don't worry, Tiana.
It's like you said He's just trying to goad you.
I have to go to the docks to make sure.
This is my responsibility.
What about the coronation? Your mother's right.
I know Facilier.
He likes to play games.
Don't indulge him.
And if this is not a game? The coronation will have to wait.
My people could be in danger.
From one queen to another, you know I have to go.
This is all my fault.
If I hadn't rescued Eloise, Victoria Belfrey might still be alive.
No, these events were set in motion by forces beyond your control.
And that being said, I don't believe they're beyond repair.
But how do we fix this? Well, I think I may have a way.
Have a look.
Lucy's doctor.
She was found in the hospital the same night as Victoria.
Medical examiner said death was due to natural causes.
You think otherwise? Well, a lock of her hair was missing.
Well, it says here she died at the same time as Victoria.
If that's true, another cult member must be responsible.
But the evil extends far beyond Eloise.
And if we can find the source, might just take us right back to her.
[CELLPHONE DINGS] - - [CELLPHONE BLOOPS] So "H-Town.
" [CHUCKLES] Yeah.
I was kinda disappointed I didn't make the cut.
I promise, I will get to your story in an upcoming episode, Remy.
Well, you, uh, definitely mentioned Jacinda.
A bunch.
Well Must've been that mix tape she made you.
Mix tape? Yeah, she came in here with it, uh, the night that you left for San Francisco.
[ELECTRICITY BUZZES] Really? Now the lights? [SIGHS] I'd better go check the breaker box.
This building's falling apart.
[BUZZING STOPS] What the hell? I doubt the devil has anything to do with it.
[CHUCKLES] My guess is that your friend's right An electrical short's to blame.
Wait How When did you come in? Well, even a storm can sneak up on a man if he's not careful.
[CHUCKLES] The name's Samdi.
I'm looking for the proprietor of this establishment.
Roni? Uh, she's not here.
I could give her a message.
Wonderful.
I'm an investor.
Well, Victoria Belfrey pushed me out of the Heights years ago.
Huh.
But now that she's she's passed on, I've decided to return.
See if I can help improve things.
Ah, please.
Ask Roni to call me.
Yeah, I will.
- [ELECTRICITY BUZZES] - Oh.
Perhaps I can help by getting that fixed.
Have a good day.
You, too.
HOOK: It would appear Facilier was right.
Something did attack here.
We have to find this thing and stop it.
I mean, just look at the bite it took out of this.
Not exactly a mouth you'd want to kiss, now, is it? Who are you? My shiny coat and my sharp spear don't give it away? I'm the hero who's going to kill this beast of a gator.
Then you're even stupider than you look, because whatever attacked this dock is too big to be any gator.
You don't have to believe me.
In fact, it's probably best if you and your friends run along If anyone is running along, it is you.
Fiery.
Whew, I like that.
You remind me of someone.
Oh, myself.
You'd do best to cut the quips.
This is the future queen of the kingdom you're talking to.
Allow me to introduce myself.
Prince Naveen of Maladonia, at your service.
Wait, you're really a prince? I've been tracking this fearsome beast across the entire realm.
My enchanted spear is the only weapon strong enough to kill it.
Now he is bragging about his enchanted spear.
Well, what's the harm in bringing him? We can always use him as bait.
And I'll enjoy saving his life and showing him what a real hero is like.
A feast fit for a king.
Or a queen.
Drew! Hey, Sabine.
What are you doin' here? I didn't know you were back in the Heights.
Came for the fair.
I heard you were slinging your beignets.
Had to come see for myself.
Do you mind? Oh! Delicious.
Not that I'm surprised, though.
Next to me, you were the most talented in cooking school.
Still cocky I see, but thank you.
[BOTH CHUCKLE] Last I remember, you left early to work at your parents' fabulous restaurant.
I'm so jealous.
Yeah, but now that's in the past.
There was only so much I could learn from them.
You have built quite the kingdom for yourself here.
You always were kind of a one-woman show.
What does that mean? Oh, come on.
You'd never even trust your own sous-chef enough to stir a soup.
[STAMMERS] You know you're a tiny bit controlling.
- Well, I am not.
- [SCOFFS] Really? What? What are you doin'? Just a tiny experiment.
You obviously wouldn't mind if I dunked this sweet little guy into this savory, sumptuous bath of Okay, okay, okay.
Look, that's enough.
If you are going to ruin your lunch, then you can pay for it first.
I would, but I'm not here as a customer.
I've got my own truck.
Oh, wow.
Uh, that's that's great.
What, um What kind of food you cookin' up? I'm actually doing Cajun, too.
That's my truck over there by the entrance.
Flamin' Cajun.
[CHUCKLES] I guess great minds think alike.
Yeah.
Hey.
You guys need help? I think we got this handled.
Thanks, Henry.
Does he sleep here? He's in this pub more often than you are.
Have you not got a home? Is that it? Yeah, yeah.
I got a place.
And, actually, I should be heading out.
Got somewhere to be, and I don't want to be late.
Oh, where are you going? Sounds important.
Yeah, yeah.
It's, uh it's nothing big.
Just a lead on a writing assignment.
Tell you about it if it works out.
I don't want to jinx it.
Okay, well, good luck, then.
Thank you.
Um, yeah, and before I go, there was a guy in earlier.
Um, little strange.
Said he was an investor and he could help you fix the lights.
What's wrong with the lights? Nothing, actually, until he walked in.
They seem fine now.
Anyway, just thought I'd tell you.
[CELLPHONE RINGING] KELLY: [SIGHS] Oh, God.
It's Chad.
He keeps leaving messages.
What am I supposed to tell him? Don't pick up.
- Yeah, right.
- [RINGING STOPS] Oh, no, that's that's not what I meant.
I I meant that, um [SIGHS] we have bigger problems than your fiancé right now.
Look.
"Baron Samdi.
" Who's that? Sounds like a colonial dictator.
No, try Dr.
Facilier.
The voodoo witch doctor with that ridiculous hat? You know him? Our paths have crossed.
What are the chances he'd show up just days after we discover there's a coven forming? You think he's awake, too? I mean, it's not like the curse is broken.
Otherwise, Henry would I know what it would mean for Henry.
And we won't let that happen.
But who knows what Victoria did before she died or who she woke.
He could be up.
[SIGHS] And if he is we got to find out.
And I think I know how.
Hey, Lucy.
Khakis, really? Well, yeah, its kind of all I got.
So, I wasn't sure what I should bring, and then I remembered this.
- The Game of Life? - Yep.
Used to play it when I was a kid.
Basically, you live your entire life in an hour.
You'll never look at things the same way again.
And neither will you after tonight.
What does that mean? Right before I got sick, my step-grandma showed me something The second storybook, like the one you write about.
Now I know the truth.
She told me everything I believe is real.
Oh, Lucy, she's always been manipulative.
No, I'm telling you.
It's real.
I saw the book.
You were in it.
And where is it now? I don't know, but it doesn't matter, because tonight is the night you're finally gonna give my mom true love's kiss.
And when that happens, the curse will break and we'll all remember our stories.
Wow, seems like a lot to put on a kiss.
Just wait, and you'll see.
[SIGHS] [DOOR BELL JINGLING] 'Scuse me, ma'am.
Are you, uh, Hilda, the proprietor of this bakery? Mm-hmm.
This is delicate work.
I will be right with you.
I'm Detective Rogers, this is Detective Weaver.
We're investigating the murder of Dr.
Andrea Sage.
She purchased something here the morning of her death.
Was wondering if you remember seeing her? [SCOFFS] I remember.
But I didn't see her.
I I apologize.
I didn't Dreadful what happened.
Absolutely dreadful.
Bit off-season for gingerbread, isn't it? Never.
It's my number-one seller.
Of course Dr.
Sage had her usual tea cake that morning.
Wanted to let me know in person that my test results came back clean.
She was a dear like that.
I-I can't imagine anyone wanting to hurt her.
And yet someone did.
Sorry, that's off limits.
Health inspector would have my letter if anyone got into the sugar.
I wish I could be more help, but with my condition, you may have better luck talking to the butcher next door.
Of course.
Thanks for your help.
Cookie for the road? They're fresh out of the oven.
Oh, no, thank you.
Though, they look delicious.
Have a good day.
[DOOR OPENS, DOOR BELLS JINGLE] Did you see that? Oh, she may be blind, but I'm not.
She's obviously hiding something.
Whatever it is, we'll find it.
Tastes like a soggy hat.
I'm gonna kill him dead.
Kill who dead? Officer.
[CHUCKLES] Uh, that that was just an expression.
- Um, do you want a beignet? - Mm-hmm.
Don't tempt me.
I'm on a diet.
I need to make sure that all your licenses and permits are in order with the truck.
You know, for the cooking and "killing him dead" stuff.
[CHUCKLES] Do you have them? Uh, yeah.
I'll just [SIGHS] So, any sign of that crocodile, mate? Old boy's an alligator.
What's the difference? Both'll devour you if given the chance.
So we best not give it to them.
And since it is pretty clear here our prince has no idea where he is going, I think it's time that I took over the hunt.
Well, thankfully for all of us that won't be necessary.
By the looks of these marks here, someone was dragged in that direction.
[CHUCKLES DRYLY] Ahh! The game is still afoot.
This is not a game.
My people's lives are at risk.
Oh, lighten up, Your Majesty.
It's just something hunters say.
These two are gonna be at this all night, aren't they? Unless an alligator eats them.
I'm beginning to root for that.
[CLEARS THROAT] This prince is really getting under your skin, isn't he? Tiana! Ella! [GRUNTING] It was an alligator.
It took the whole ferry down.
Did you see where it went? Back in the water.
It was headed towards Firefly Island.
- [GROANS] - There's a village there.
We have to stop it.
I'm coming with you.
Lives are at stake.
You need a hero.
And yet I have you.
We do not have time to argue about this right now.
Hook, Ella, get this man to a healer.
Prince Naveen, you say you're a hero.
Time to show me you're not just talk.
I don't want to do this, but I'm gonna have to shut this operation down.
You're missing your food safety permit.
At least one person working in this truck needs to be certified.
You're the only one here.
Okay, Officer Officer, please.
Wait, please.
Okay, I-I mailed in my paperwork.
They just haven't sent it back to me yet.
And I need to be at this fair tonight or or Rollin' Bayou is out of the game, and then I am out of the game, and I-I Sorry.
I don't make the rules.
How'd you even know it was missing? Got an anonymous tip.
I had to follow it up.
An anonymous tip? [STAMMERS] It's a food truck.
Who even does that? Ca [SIGHS] And he says I'm controlling.
[SCOFFS] He hasn't seen anything yet.
Oh, come to see what all the fuss is about? I've barely had a moment to breathe, it's so busy.
SABINE: Well, you wouldn't be if you hadn't called the cops about my safety permit so they'd shut me down.
What? That wasn't me.
I don't have a long list of enemies, Drew.
Who else cares enough about my truck to do this? Just give me a second.
[SCOFFS] Hey, S-Sabine.
I think I might know.
Oh, so it was you.
No, but I have this silent partner Mr.
Samdi.
It was his idea for the truck and the money.
He said he could guarantee my success.
This is so like you.
I work my ass off for something, and it it just falls in your lap.
And y-you never think twice about that? Would you have? I don't know, Drew.
I didn't have that option.
I used my last dollar to start this business.
And if I fail, no one bails me out.
You have no idea what that is like.
I'll make it up to you.
Well, unless you have a magical safety permit somewhere, you can't.
[SIGHS] So, what exactly is our plan here? Well, we sit.
Quietly.
When we see the alligator, we'll kill it before it kills us.
You can't ever be serious, can you? [LAUGHS] And you can't stop controlling everything.
Like you tried to control the hunt back there.
Which was stupid, by the way.
What was that about? [CHUCKLING] Oh, come on, Your Majesty.
We're in the middle of a bog.
No one else can hear us but the frogs.
Who am I supposed to trust? I'm the queen now.
People are looking to me, and I have to help them because that is what a good queen does.
Not that you would understand.
You are hunting an alligator for glory.
Actually, I'm not.
I'm hunting this gator because it because it killed my brother.
It did? I'm sorry.
My brother and I always did our royal duties together.
And that's the way we planned to rule.
Now it's all on me.
And ruling alone is the last thing I ever wanted.
It's hard, and it's lonely.
And eventually, you have to find people you trust to help you.
Well, perhaps we could start by making a royal alliance in the hunt for this alligator.
[LAUGHS] I'll drink to that.
Mm.
[CHUCKLES] What is that? Ah, that was my brother's.
He was the real hunter.
It looks just like Dr.
Facilier's.
Who's Dr.
Facilier? I think you know exactly who he is.
I don't.
Are you working for him? Did he set this up? Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Look, look.
I have no idea who you're talking about.
You're lying.
You're lying! - What does he want? - Tiana, Tiana, Tiana! Please, Tiana! Naveen! [SCREAMS] Naveen! [PANTING] Naveen! Oh, no! Oh, no! [DOOR CLOSES] [FOOTSTEPS APPROACH] I'm looking for Roni.
We spoke on the phone.
Well, you found her.
The one and only.
How can I help you? Actually, I was hoping I could help you.
I'm an investor.
With a little extra capital, you could expand.
Maybe even franchise.
Dream however big you'd like.
[CHUCKLES] Well, I am a dreamer, but I just don't think my sister would go for it.
Your sister? Kelly.
We own this place together.
Perhaps I could chat with Kelly, if she's around.
Always seem to be.
But I'm afraid I'm not interested.
Are you sure? We could discuss it over a drink.
Mm, don't need to.
I've heard more than enough.
Well, I'm sorry to hear that.
If you ever change your mind, you have my number.
[LUCY GIGGLES] That was brutal.
No! [ALL CHUCKLE] Been playing since I was two.
Kind of a prodigy.
She is.
Yeah, I can see that.
Thanks for the hot cocoa, Mom.
Think I'll turn in now.
It's 6:30, and we just got started.
Yeah, we haven't even played Life yet.
Next game night.
Night.
Well, good to see that she's back to her old self again.
Oh, she sure is.
Ah.
And how are you doing? I mean, I know it's been a hell of a week with, you know, Victoria and everything.
You okay? Uh Yeah, I think so.
It's not how I thought our story would end, but I guess you don't always get the ending you want, right? So, you listened to "H-Town.
" I did.
And I liked it.
And I'm glad you stuck around, even when "H-Town" didn't give you much of a reason to.
You know, word on the street is you made me a mix tape.
I did.
And then I got cold feet.
[BOTH LAUGH] Yeah, it's okay.
I mean, I froze up at least like three times before I actually asked you out, roughly.
[BOTH LAUGH] But the important thing is, now that I know this tape exists, I think I'm gonna need to see what's on it.
I mean, you know, this could change everything.
Well, then I better get it.
[BOTH LAUGH] Coming back.
[LAUGHS] [ALLIGATOR GROWLS] [GASPS] Naveen! [COUGHING] [ALLIGATOR GROWLS] Do it! - Just throw it, Tiana! - [ALLIGATOR GROWLS] Throw it, Tiana! Just throw it, Tiana! Throw it! [ALLIGATOR ROARS] Naveen! Grab my hand.
Are you okay? Sorry, we're closed for the day.
Probably every day.
No, you're not.
Not if I have anything to say about it.
Really don't want to see you right now.
I know, but I have something for you.
Just take it.
Then you'll never have to see my face again.
Your safety permit? And now it's yours.
Why? Because you were right.
I've had a whole lot of things handed to me in my life, and maybe I don't always do what I should with them.
No, you don't.
Look, I never told you this, but I didn't drop out of cooking school.
I flunked out.
And I convinced myself that it was because I didn't care.
But the truth is, I wasn't very good at it.
Oh, that's not true.
Come on, you stole a basket of my beignets.
Did you like them? W Yeah.
I mean, they were very uh, sugary.
Exactly.
But yours are amazing.
So, please, don't shoot yourself in the foot here.
Trust me, and let me help you.
[NAVEEN COUGHS, GRUNTS] Oh, God.
I'm so sorry.
Naveen.
Naveen? Okay, hey, look at me.
Look at me.
I'm gonna go get some help, okay? Okay, you're gonna be fine.
DR.
FACILIER: Oh, it's a bit late for that, I'm afraid.
It was quite the beast.
You? What'd you get out of this? Allow me to show you.
[WHOOSH] [WATER BUBBLING] This was something of mine that alligator swallowed a long time ago.
Until it was dead, I couldn't retrieve it.
This is all about some jewelry? What about Naveen's life? You have magic.
You have to save him.
[SIGHING] Oh.
[CLICKS TONGUE] Oh, that's difficult.
He's already between worlds.
And to bring him fully back to this one requires magic that comes with my steepest price.
No, no.
I'm not paying any price.
Because right now, you owe me.
I got you your bauble.
Now you are going to save him.
That is my price.
Fair enough.
[WHOOSH] [LAUGHS] What happened? He did it.
You're okay.
[SNAPS FINGERS] Not so fast.
W-W-What'd you do? I saved him, like you asked.
The thing is, I agreed to waive your price, not his.
After all, it was his life that I saved.
Until he pays his debt, that life is mine.
Then what exactly is that payment going to be? All you need to know is that he's somewhere difficult to reach.
If you think I'm going to let you get away with this, you are wrong.
I am about to be queen.
I will have all the resources in this kingdom in my reach to find him.
And perhaps, one day, you will.
Until then [SNAPS FINGERS] All right, folks, Rollin' Bayou is rollin' by you again.
And we still have the best beignets in town.
Or any town.
Don't be so modest.
DESK SERGEANT: To hell with my diet.
How 'bout a bag of beignets and a bowl of gumbo? Yeah, mm-hmm.
Sure.
And, you know, I hear that people like to dunk 'em inside the gumbo.
- I hear that, too.
- Uh-huh.
Uh, if if the spirit moves you.
[BOTH LAUGH] Ugh, do you smell that? That's gas.
[COUGHING] She's still alive.
Well, there's nothing and no one here except baking equipment.
A lock of her hair is missing.
The cult.
Whoever killed our doctor tried to kill our baker, too.
And whatever they're up to, I suspect they're far from finished.
So, what do we do now? [SIGHS] I don't know.
But I think we can both agree Samdi had no idea we pulled a switch on him.
So, Facilier's asleep.
[DOOR CLOSES] Well, that makes one of us.
Nice to see you again, Regina.
I see you didn't return empty-handed.
The Dark One in denim.
How quaint.
Oh, so now you're awake? I came to you for help.
I had an alliance with Belfrey which precluded my being honest with you.
And now that she's dead and the coven's come to town, what, you just circle back around to us for help? That's not the only reason I came here.
I had thoughts that the coven killed Dr.
Sage, but today there was another attack on a member of the coven.
That's caused me to re-evaluate.
Turns out, the doctor had a scar we missed.
Looks like a tattoo removal.
Apparently, in my cursed persona, I made some poor decisions.
I mean, who loves Def Leppard lyrics that much? Had to be done.
I recognize this.
Looks like Eight spokes on a wheel.
The doctor wasn't killed by the coven.
She was in the coven.
Someone's killing witches.
Well, pour some sugar on me.
I think another drink's required For all of us.
Oh, ooh.
Okay.
We got some Beyoncé not a big surprise.
Nice.
Not a big surprise.
Um [LAUGHS] Lauryn Hill.
That's always a good choice.
- Mm.
- Oh, wow.
Mikky Ekko, "Pull Me Down.
" Look at you! Now, that is an impressively deep cut.
Don't act so surprised.
You're not the only one with taste, Henry Mills.
[LAUGHS] Why do you why do you do that Call me Henry Mills? Oh, you don't like it? No, no.
I do.
It's so, uh What? It's so you.
[CHUCKLES] [MUFFLED CONVERSATION] [HINGES CREAK] [SIGHS] "And Drizella stood victorious.
For if true love's kiss should ever break the curse, Henry Mills would surely die.
" [GASPS] True love's kiss.
Mom! [PANTING] [HENRY CLEARS THROAT] [SIGHS] Baby.
I'm I'm sorry.
Baby, what are you still doing up? I had a nightmare that something horrible happened.
It's okay.
It was just a silly dream.
But I-I can't sleep now.
Can we finish the game? Oh.
- Uh sure.
- [CHUCKLES] Here we go.
Yeah, Lucy gonna You gonna beat me again, huh? That is the most beignets I've made in a day Or ever, really.
I say we make a pretty good team.
Yeah.
We're a hit.
And, uh, I'm gonna celebrate by throwing out this trash.
Yeah.
[LAUGHS] You're the Taste of the Heights.
It's good to see you can take orders well.
And not just from me.
I don't like doing this.
Doesn't matter what you like.
The important thing is that you've gained her trust.
Well, why do you care about her? She's going to help me get something that I've been after for quite a long while.
In the meantime, the two of you can keep making magic together.
Drew? Did I hear you talking to someone? I guess it's just me, um, congratulating myself.
Oh.
[CHUCKLES] Well, you forgot a bag.
I'm sorry, Tiana, but I know you'll find a way to help him.
We just can't give up hope.
I won't.
Did you ever find out why Facilier sent you after that monster to begin with? If you can believe it, it was all for a necklace.
A necklace? I know, but I have more important things to worry about now.
Like my kingdom.
So Are you ready to don your crown and meet your subjects as their queen? Yes.
But on one condition You all come out to meet them with me.
Because I can't protect them all alone.

Hmm.
Your friends are gone now.
You can stop pretending you're not happy to see me.
Especially when I come bearing gifts.
Remember this? How could I forget? But why bother returning it? After all, I'm a much different person than the last time you saw me wearing that.
All people change.
Do they? Then what do you get out of this? I just [SIGHS] I miss my queen.
