Once upon a Time in Wonderland (2013) s01e11 Episode Script

Heart of the Matter

Previously in Wonderland I give you your Queen.
Anastasia.
You tossed me aside like a piece of rubbish, all for a little red crown.
What's this? My mother gave it to me.
It always pointed me towards her.
It's called a lost and found.
Ooh! Jafar has released the Jabberwocky.
He has Will, he has all three bottles.
Wonderland is doomed.
My mother I'm afraid she's long dead now.
Your mother lives.
Ah.
Long time no see, Genie.
Actually, not genie.
Not anymore.
Should I offer congratulations or condolences? I seek neither.
I'm here about the item I traded you years ago the lost and found.
Do you still have it? Ah, that depends.
On what? On how much it's worth to you.
It's worth a great deal.
I, however, am worth very little.
I was hoping we could come to an alternative arrangement.
Ah.
How about I give you back your little compass in exchange for Alice and the Knave of Hearts? What's your interest in them? They have an unpaid debt.
Deliver them here and the compass is yours.
Bounty hunting is not really my thing.
And charity isn't mine.
So I guess you'll be leaving empty-handed.
Not entirely.
And how's that? You just bought me a drink.
Hey! That's my drink.
You'd better pay for it.
Put it on my tab.
How about I put you on your arse, huh? Once Upon a Time in Wonderland 1x11 - Heart of the Matter - Original air date March 20, 2014 incipio.
Tres genies in utres.
Ego te coniungere.
Da mihi virtutem! What is that? Magic.
I've never seen magic do that.
In the wrong hands, you'd be surprised what magic can do.
Milady.
I didn't see you there.
I'm sorry.
Who are you, exactly? We're your tweedles.
My tweedles? At your service.
Lovely.
What are your names? W we don't have names, Milady.
A servant is defined only by his service.
Oh.
Um, shall we prepare the tea for her arrival? For whose arrival? Hello, Anastasia.
Your Majesty.
Welcome.
Oh! Tomorrow's your wedding day.
You're to be Queen of this castle.
It's I who should defer to you.
Uh Of course.
I was really honored that you accepted our invitation.
And I was surprised to receive it.
The Red King and I have never seen eye-to-eye on anything.
I didn't know that.
Well, men like him tend to find me threatening.
The King believes royals shouldn't have magic.
It separates us from our subjects.
Oh! I think a little separation's a welcome thing.
We queens have so much to think about.
Why not use everything at our disposal to help us rule? I guess I hadn't thought of it in that way.
Perhaps you can help steer the Red King to my point of view.
You remind me of myself.
I had humble beginnings, too.
I see your potential.
My own daughter's been a disappointment to me.
You're much more the kind of daughter I'd choose to have, if if one could choose such things.
And should you choose to learn a touch of magic, I could teach you.
And what the King doesn't know won't hurt him.
I appreciate the offer but I hardly think keeping secrets is the best way to begin a marriage.
But it's a wonderful way to begin a friendship.
Perhaps another time.
Thank you.
Your Majesty.
Well, my door is always open.
Anything yet? No.
But if my mother is indeed alive, this should lead us right to her.
Well, hopefully before the caterpillar realizes it's gone.
The caterpillar is the least of your problems.
What are you doing here? The Red Queen.
She sent me.
For what? To warn you.
She was forced to make her wishes, so now Jafar, he controls all three genies.
Her Majesty wanted you to know so you could leave Wonderland while you still can, save yourselves.
Is there a way into the palace? Didn't you hear me? It's over.
Jafar is going to do the spell Tweedle, is there a way into the palace? T there are secret tunnels under the castle, but I can show you.
Guess this'll have to wait.
There's something else.
Jafar.
He's unleashed the Jabberwocky.
What does that mean? That we may be too late.
Magicae res tres.
Vult totam! What is it you hope to achieve with this spell? If you can read my mind, then you already know.
I can't read your mind, Jafar only your fear.
And right now, you're afraid you're doing something wrong.
Listen, mate, would you mind keeping it down a bit? I'm trying to have a bit of a nap.
How are you doing it? Well, I closed me eyes, I tried counting sheep.
But you two you're like that.
The spell! You're resisting it.
I want to know how.
Why don't you let me talk to him? Hmm? Isn't that why you have me here? To apply a woman's touch? Hmm? You think there's something wrong with him.
Let me get inside take a look around.
What are you doing? - Listening.
- To what? - You.
- Oh.
Your deepest fears.
I'll save you some time.
Water, hairy spiders, being stabbed in the head, and, uh, raisins.
Grapes are fine, but raisins, no, thank you.
Enough! I don't understand.
Understand what? I can't read him.
There's something different about this genie.
It's the Red Queen.
She must have put some sort of protection spell on him.
Why would she do that? She and this one they have history.
Ohh.
Perhaps we're talking to the wrong person.
Perhaps you're right.
Let's pay Anastasia a little visit.
Will! Hello, Ana.
What are you doing here? I don't know.
To see you look you in your eye and ask you why you did it.
And what do you want me to say? That it's a con.
That it was a play for the big prize.
Marry the old man, get the keys to the kingdom, and tomorrow, we'll jump through that mirror and count our riches on the other side.
Please, Ana.
This isn't you.
Look, you really have to go! If the guards catch you, they will throw you in the dungeon.
So you're worried about me.
That means you care.
Of course I care! But I'm trying to do what's best for both of us! Do you really believe that? Have you forgotten all the good times we've had? Making wine from wildflowers, naming the stars to fall asleep at night.
You named them all "Anastasia.
" It's the most beautiful name I know.
Come away with me.
We can forget any of this ever happened.
Intruder! Halt! The wagon dawn.
Meet me there.
It's not too late to make things right.
Are you all right? Yes, thank you.
Thank you for coming so quickly.
You must hate Jafar more than anyone for keeping you locked up like this.
I believe he's as much my captive as I am his.
We create our own prisons.
I suppose we do.
What are you two doing here?! I I t told you to run! The genies where are they? Jafar has the bottles.
He's begun already! Then we'll stop him.
Thank you for coming back.
Ana, I I know you didn't come back for me, but thank you.
My friend.
Alice, if you can save Will you can save Wonderland.
Alice! The Knave.
My new genie, your old flame.
What did you do to him? I don't know what you mean.
You tricked me once with a counterfeit bottle.
Now this one is not responding to my spell.
I'm going to punish you severely until you tell me what you've done.
I've done nothing.
And even if I had, I wouldn't tell you.
What is wrong with him? Stand down, Jafar.
I've got your answer.
I know why this Knave isn't responding to the spell.
It's the same reason why I couldn't read his fears.
He doesn't have a heart.
You should know better than to keep secrets from me, Your Majesty.
It wasn't the Queen's fears that gave it away.
Then whose? We're not alone in this dungeon.
You have guests.
We found a secret tunnel system, Sire.
They must have escaped.
Secret tunnels.
I suppose you had no idea about those, either.
She knew about the tunnels.
The King used them to bring his companions in and out of the palace.
Hmm.
Seems I'm not the only one who grew tired of his partnership with you.
All right, Your Majesty.
You're going to help me find the Knave's heart.
I didn't know it was missing.
H how could I possibly know where it is? I'm afraid I'm of no value to you.
True.
But you may still be valuable to someone else.
It was you the Jabberwocky was sensing in there, wasn't it? It was like I could feel her picking me apart from the inside.
And now because of me, they know about the Knave's heart.
And I'm sure it's only a matter of time before that thing gets inside the Knave's head and they'll find out where it is.
Well, there's only one thing to do, then, isn't there? We figure out a way of finding it before they do.
Finding it isn't hard.
I already know where it is.
You do? Yes.
The Knave told me.
But getting there that's the challenging part.
Why's that? Because it's not in Wonderland.
Your heart where is it? That's funny I don't remember.
And locking me down here won't do you much good.
I've slept in worse places than this.
But have you ever slept next to a corpse? No! Aah! She's useless to me now.
She's made her wishes.
I have no reason to keep her alive.
But I think perhaps you do.
Tell me exactly where your heart is, or she dies.
Simple enough? Don't do it, Will.
He'll kill you.
He'll kill me anyway.
Protect your heart.
Tell me where or tell her goodbye.
Okay, I'll do it.
Why?! My heart's caused me enough suffering.
Nobody needs to die because of it not even you.
Ana, you're early.
Will Scarlet, I presume? Your Majesty.
I don't really know what I'm supposed to do.
I don't really know how to I don't That's not necessary.
I've come as a friend of Anastasia's.
I'm here on her behalf.
Is she not coming? She's made her decision.
She has a new life now one that's hard enough without old boyfriends distracting her with flights of fancy.
Is that what you think love is? I think love is weakness.
But that's just one opinion.
You don't look like someone who does other people's dirty work.
As I said, I'm a friend.
Why would a friend keep her from following her heart? In my experience, hearts are much more trouble than they're worth.
I think you might be right about that.
Every day, I wake up thinking, "maybe she changed her mind," "remembered how much she loved me.
" "I bet she'll come home today.
" But she don't come.
I go to sleep alone.
My heart's broken all over again.
And then the sun comes up, and I I think, "maybe today's the day.
" But it never is the day, is it? No.
It's time you realize it never will be.
Otherwise, that pain in your heart will never, ever go away.
You served your purpose for her.
You brought her here to Wonderland.
You helped her realize she was meant for more.
We all come into each other's lives for a reason.
Sometimes, it's just for a different one than you thought.
Then there's a reason you're in mine.
And what might that be? I know what you do.
I know what you do to people's hearts.
And I want you to do that to me.
Do you understand what you're asking for? - Really? - Yeah.
A man without his heart Is a man without heartache.
You won't be able to love again.
I'd rather feel nothing than feel like this.
Do it.
Ohhh! Whoa! Better? Yes, thank you.
Yeah.
So, what are you gonna do with that? Oh, don't worry.
I'll take care of it.
It won't cause you any more trouble.
And now I think it's best for everyone if you'd be on your way.
Righto.
I'll be on me way.
So, let me get this straight.
You got the Knave his heart back, but you didn't put it back in? Said he got used to the emptiness.
Rabbit! Who are they? Former soldiers.
What are they doing here? The Queen asked me to find anyone willing to throw in for a stand against Jafar.
It's not going well.
Problem is, they have nothing to believe in.
- Rabbit.
- They need a leader to inspire them someone who knows what's right and just.
Rabbit.
We need to take a trip.
Now? It's urgent.
If we don't find the Knave's heart, it won't matter how many soldiers we gather.
It won't be enough to defeat Jafar.
All right.
Where to? The very location where you found the Knave in the first place.
Where's that? A town called Storybrooke.
Welcome to Storybrooke.
Curiouser and curiouser.
Yaaaah! Look out! Of all the lands I've traveled to, I've never seen anything quite like it.
Huh.
It's so noisy.
Come on.
The Knave's place is this way.
You'll know it by the smell.
It's like a cave in here.
Press that white thing over there on the wall.
Oh.
It's quite a step up from the Knave's wagon.
So many nice things.
I I have a feeling most of it fell off a truck.
Well, how did it get in here, then? No, it's a figure o oh, never mind.
Oh! There's ice inside this box.
How'd the Knave acquire magic such as this? No, i it's not magic.
It's called electricity.
An invisible energy that makes the fridge cold, the toaster hot it can even turn darkness into light.
And that's not magic? Well How can we be sure that this is even the Knave's home? Oh, well, there's this.
Yes, I'm pretty sure this is his place.
You should have let him kill me.
Not much of a thank-you.
Even without your heart, you chose to help me and not yourself.
I'd have done the same for anyone.
Don't want blood on me hands.
It gets messy.
No, you're no Knave.
Will you're a good man.
The same good man I fell in love with all those years ago.
You didn't love me, Ana.
And you don't love me now.
How can you say that, Will? You love the memory of me.
You love the times we had.
You loved how simple it was before all of this, but you didn't love me.
If you did, you would have showed up at the wagon that day.
Getting cold feet? Your Majesty.
I was I was having the hardest time with my gown Don't lie to me.
You're about to make a terrible mistake.
No.
No, I'm about to fix one.
I only hope I'm not too late.
Stop! Perhaps this is all my fault.
Is is it possible that you're not running to him but from me? No.
You've been wonderful.
N no, it's not you at all.
Oh, good.
I thought maybe I'd scared you off with all my talk of your potential and how special a young woman I think you are.
Special? I'm sorry.
It's it's not my place to say such things.
I'm sure you've heard it many times from your own mother.
No.
Not really.
Pity.
What I see in you is a desire to make a mark in this world.
Someday, we'll all move on, and when we do do you really want to be buried behind some rickety wagon not even a stone to mark your grave? Or do you want thousands to gather around, celebrating the glorious life you led the life you were meant for? How can you be sure that that's the life for me? Because you could have been a nobody, but you chose to be a queen.
You chose power over weakness.
Don't be shaken by the ravings of that lovesick man.
I'm sure he spoke well.
They always do.
But they were lies.
Will is many things, but he's not a liar.
He's waiting for me.
Is he? I don't see him.
Do you? You tossed him aside for a crown.
Men don't forget a betrayal like that.
He'll never trust you again, and he will never love you again.
It's already too late.
No.
It can't be.
Ohh.
Perhaps all he wanted was to ruin this day for you.
To embarrass you in front of all your friends.
This part of your story's over now but a new chapter is just beginning.
You can be a wonderful queen.
Will you show me how? Oh, of course I will.
I'll teach you everything you need to know.
Yet another part of Will's life I've damaged.
You shouldn't blame yourself for that.
If it wasn't for me, the Knave wouldn't be in trouble.
He'd be safe.
He'd be happy.
The only bottles he'd be worrying about are the ones that had run out of beer.
And if he was, where would you be? You'd still be in that asylum, and I'd still be in that cage.
So he should suffer so we can be happy? No, but look around you.
Does this look like someone who is happy to you? He fetched you for a reason, Alice.
Clearly, he wasn't the only one who left someone in Wonderland.
Anastasia.
This is his fight, too.
Always has been.
Now, you know Will better than anyone, so think.
If you were him, where would you keep your heart? Maybe with the person that broke it in the first place.
What are you doing? You chose to be heartless.
I I never knew that.
You can't ask a man to feel like that for the rest of his life.
You know, there's something I've been dying to know.
Yeah? What's that? You said you wanted Jafar to change the laws of magic so you could do the impossible, go back and change the past our past.
That's right.
What part would you have changed? Would you have left the old guy at the altar? Never said yes when he proposed? Never even gone after the crown jewels? Never come to Wonderland.
We should have stayed in Sherwood.
I wish we'd never set eyes on that damn looking glass.
Getting involved with magic that was the start of all our trouble.
Anastasia and Will we already had all the magic we needed, right? That, they did.
Now it's your turn.
I'm sorry.
I can't get it to light.
Just keep trying.
It'll come eventually.
You make magic look so easy.
It starts with a respect for the power itself and then the belief that you deserve such power.
Can I ask you a question? Of course.
The magic what exactly do you use it for? To get whatever you want.
Anything? Almost.
There are a few restrictions the laws of magic.
What are those? Things not even the strongest magic can accomplish.
You can't bring back the dead.
You can't make someone love you.
You can't change the past.
Can the laws be broken? No.
They cannot.
You say you want to learn, but something's holding you back.
You're afraid.
What is it? I don't know.
I can I don't want the Red King to see what we're doing.
Why? Because I know he won't approve.
Anastasia you don't need anyone's approval.
Whoever it was that made you feel this way, that you are somehow flawed or unworthy, you need to take that pain, the fear that they were right, and use it.
It's the root of your power.
Let it drive the magic and prove them all wrong! It worked! It worked! Feels good, doesn't it? Wonderful.
I can't understand why the King's so against it.
Oh, I have a feeling you won't have to worry about him for too much longer.
We have the Knave's heart.
Now we just have to hide it.
If the Jabberwocky can read our thoughts, it has to be somewhere none of us know.
That way, it remains hidden no matter what they do to us.
Okay, but how on earth do we do that? What is it? The lost and found.
Something's happening.
It's found something.
We should follow it and see Rabbit, go! - But but I I - Back to your family.
How helpful.
You saved me a trip to this Storybrooke.
The Knave told me all about it.
Now hand over the heart.
I won't do that not ever.
Have it your way.
It was lovely doing business with you, Alice.
But now it's time to say goodbye to you both.
For good.
Cyrus, no! Put that down! You shouldn't play with toys that don't belong to you.
Stay back! How did you do that? I didn't do anything.
We failed.
Jafar has the heart.
There's no stopping him now.
I'm not so sure about that.
Tell me what you see.
The needle it's following you.
Is it following me or or is it following the staff? I don't understand.
How is that possible? When Jafar tried to kill me, the staff it fought back, like it was resisting him.
And this My mother always said it would one day lead me back to her.
And now She was always fascinated by serpents, how they were able to change, to evolve.
Our house was filled with renderings of them, with pictures, carvings.
Cyrus what are you saying? Do you think that she's? Do you? I know it's impossible, but if there's a chance I'm right Then we free her.
All right.
Only question is how? I'm sorry.
Don't go getting all mushy on me.
I'm sorry for resorting to magic to try and win you back.
The laws of magic are there for a reason.
They're not meant to be broken.
Neither was my heart.
I know you're never gonna love me again.
But do you think you might possibly be able to forgive me? You know as well as I do, Ana anything's possible in Wonderland.
I really don't want Jafar to succeed but I do hope you get your heart back.
You deserve to feel something for someone even if it's not me.
This might sting a bit.
Will! Will! Look at me! Ana.
No! No, no, no! Let's make sure that heart of yours is still working, shall we? No! No!! No!! No! No, Ana! Ana, please! Ana! I'll kill you.
I swear to you, I'll kill you.
