In light of the recent events, Greg and Tamara torturing Regina and gaining access to the fail-safe, not to mention Neal’s/Baelfire’s sudden death, the Charmings track Mr. Gold down and give him the devastating news. Mr. Gold realizes his price for his magic has come to a head, and he’s made peace
with the fact that death may be the price he pays. He’s ready and willing. Mary Margaret and David are shocked, but let Mr. Gold go on his way.
Moving forward with their covert operation, Greg and Tamara implement the fatal blow to Storybrooke via a dwarf pickax and the fail-safe diamond. Deep below Storybrooke in the mines, Greg slams the ax down on the
diamond, erupting the magic necessary to return Storybrooke to the forestry that it emerged from 28 years ago. With Captain Hook at their side mulling over his decision to die for his cause, the pirate decides that, while he longs for revenge at any cost, death is not a price he wants to pay…just yet.
So he runs away from his new cohorts into the hands of the Charmings plus Regina. He reveals Greg’s and Tamara’s plan to destroy Storybrooke just as the room rocks under the violent eruption of deadly magic. Their plan is already in action.
True to their nature, the Charmings, with Regina in tow come up with a plan. They must save Storybrooke or everyone not born in this world will, which will leave Henry alone!
Charming and Hook race after the evil partners. If they can get the magic beans, they will be able to open a portal and whisk everyone back to Fairy Tale Land, to safety.
In the Cannery, Hook and Charming find their adversaries, beating them down and running them off, but not before snatching the beans.
In Granny’s, the group has gathered, formulating their plan. Throw the bean, everyone jumps in, land in Fairy Tale Land. Simply, but Regina will be left behind. What she didn’t tell Henry is that the force it will take to slow the diamond will take all her strength. She won’t be coming with them.
Henry is angered. There must be another way to save
Then he exclaims, they can use the magic bean to portal the diamond, just like they did with the wraith. Emma is skeptical. That might not work. But, as her parents point out, they have to try. They can’t live a life of freedom that was founded on Regina’s blood. This solidifies Snow White’s uncountable second chances she’s given Regina throughout her life.
Emma finally agrees. Down in the mines, the group has gathered around Regina. They reveal their plan. But it’s there they realize that Hook, who had held onto the bean, had two-timed them. No bean, no portal.
But Emma, who had come to grips with her magical abilities, decides to team up with Regina. Maybe the both of them could stop the diamond. (P.S. She finally calls her parents Mom and Dad)!
The power of the diamond grows stronger, draining the strength of both women, but their efforts are greater than the diamond. In rocking blow, the diamond explodes and drops to the ground, lifeless.
The greenery that had begun to envelop the town recedes.
Storybrooke has been saved!
As the group in the mines gains their bearings, they realize that their smallest member is missing. Henry’s been kidnaped by Greg and Tamara!
They rush out of the mines only to see Greg and Tamara throw a magic bean into the harbor. The portal opens up and the three jump in, on their way to another land.
However, Bae’s rescue was an aftereffect of his escape from the Shadow and the Shadow’s minions, the Lost Boys, have come to fetch their leader’s prize.
Hook, in a partial act of unselfishness, hides Bae from the Lost Boys. They leave, but not before threating Hook with the consequences of what should happen if their leader finds that Hook has hid the boy.
Later, Hook and Bae are atop deck swapping life stories of father abandonment. Hook starts to feel sorry for Bae, taking him under his wing, almost like he was a father to Bae. But it’s not long before Bae discovers a picture of Milah, his mother, on Hook’s desk. Bae demands answers, which sets Hook back on his crooked path of revenge.
He can’t be Bae’s father, not if he plans on killing
Rumplestiltskin. The boy is of no use to him.
So Hook calls the Lost Boys back to claim their possession. Bae yells at Hook that he’s just like his father, a coward. To cowardly to change his heart and choose love over revenge, over power!
The Lost Boys take Bae to the shore where they check in with a higher-up. But Bae is not the boy the Shadow seeks. The boy he wants may come after a time. The Lost Boy holds a picture of their target. It’s not Bae but his son, Henry!
Yes, it may take some years before they can get the Shadow’s boy, but the Shadow...Peter Pan…always gets what he wants!
Just then, Captain Hook, who has remembered that fateful night with Bae, returns. He’s changed his mind and he’s decided to help. With him came the last magic bean. But if they use it, where will it take them? How will they find Henry?
Mr. Gold and Belle, who has regained her memory via a potion the Blue Fairy concocted, stride up. Emma pleads with Mr. Gold to help them find her son. He’s skeptical. I mean, he created an entire curse to come to this world to
search for his son and only now found him and lost him. He’s not sure he can provide help. But since Henry is his grandson, he must try.
The six members, Emma, Regina, Mary Margaret, Charming, Hook, and Mr. Gold, board the Jolly Roger. However, just before they set sail, Mr. Gold takes Belle aside and gives her a spell. He tells her that if she follows the instructions carefully, she will enact a spell that will shield the town from view to anyone who passes by. It will keep them safe for now. Then he says good-bye. This journey is a one-way trip because the prophecy…the boy will be his undoing. He may not be coming back to Storybrooke. But nevertheless, he’s willing to face it in order to safe his family.
(In Fairy Tale Land, the portal created by Tamara, has dropped Bae on the sand. He’s unconscious but alive. His rescuers are none other than Mulan, Aurora, and Prince Phillip who work immediately to get the stranger to
blood on the sphere. A new world appears. What is that? Where have they taken Henry?
The world is Neverland, and the forces they will have to face to get Henry back are nothing compared to Greg and Tamara, for their new adversary never fails to get what he wants!
The ship rocks on the magically-induced high-seas toward the vortex. Grabbing any stronghold they can find, the six member team falls into the portal to Neverland. The sea swallows them up as they disappear beneath the
