SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Past.

Prince Charming: Red, look out! We need to move. They found us.
Red: Go. I'll take care of them.
Prince Charming: Red, I'm not leaving you.
Red: Find Snow. That's all that matters. Find her!
Prince Charming: What are you gonna do?
Red: I'm giving you a head start.
King George's men: Yah! Yah! Yah!

SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Storybrooke Sheriff Department.

Emma Swan: Please turn to the right.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Emma, this is a mistake. I didn't kill Kathryn.
Emma: Of course you didn't. But while I am your friend, I am also the sheriff, and I have to go where the evidence leads.
Mary Margaret: Which points to me? Emma, yesterday it was David. There's something not right here.
Emma: I know, but your fingerprints were on that box, and his are not... so now we have to deal with... this.
Mary Margaret: Evidence that says I cut out Kathryn's heart and buried it in the woods? This is insane.
Emma: If I don't book you, with all this evidence, it's gonna look like favoritism. And then Regina will have cause and she will fire me, and then you know what she'll do? She'll bring in someone who will railroad you. So please, just try to be patient and trust me. We can't even move forward till we verify the heart belonged to Kathryn, and I am still waiting for the DNA test results. But in the meantime, you need to bear with me. I have to ask you a few questions.
Mary Margaret: This is crazy. I would never hurt anyone.

SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Past. The cottage.

Grumpy: Snow? What are you... what are you doing?
Snow White: Getting rid of the vermin in this house. (trying to kill bird) Yah! (it flies away) Oh. What do you want?
Grumpy: It's dinnertime.
Snow White : I'm not hungry.
Grumpy: Come on. We made something extra special tonight.
Happy: She's out of control.
Snow White: Somebody die?
Jiminy Cricket: Snow, why don't you have a seat?
Snow White: Oh!
Jiminy: Ooh!
Snow White: Why is there a dirty cricket in here!
Jiminy: Uhh! Uh, my name is Jiminy, and your friends have asked me to be here tonight. They're concerned about you and they have something they'd like to say. Grumpy, why don't you start?
Grumpy: Snow White, you've changed. You've become angry, irritable, and downright mean.
Snow White: Changed? And who are you to tell me I've changed?
Jiminy: Snow, please, these are your friends, and we're all here because we... we care about you. Who wants to go next?
Sneezy: Uh... You brought bales of... straw into the house last night even though you know that I'm a... Ah... Ah ... ( sneezes) Allergic.
Snow White: You are allergic to everything.
Happy: You broke my mug!
Snow White: You're lucky it wasn't that mug you call a face!
Happy: You are the worst, most nasty, horrible...
Grumpy: Enough! Look what you're doing to Happy. That potion you took... the one that erased the Prince from your mind... you haven't been the same since you drank it.
Snow White: That helped me forget whatever or whomever I needed to forget, and I am clearly better off for it. That potion was the solution, not the problem. The problem is that I'm living here, in a house full of dwarves instead of in my palace, with my father, as a princess, but I can't do that anymore, can I? Because he was murdered, murdered by the same woman who sent a huntsman to kill me!
Jiminy: Snow, your anger towards the Queen is understandable. It's just not fair to take it out on your friends.
Snow White: You're right. I should be taking it out on her.
Jiminy: Oh, wait. Revenge is not the answer. No, it's gonna change you. It'll turn you into something darker than you can imagine. You don't want to go there. (Snow White places a glass jar over Jiminy to silence him.)
Snow White: Good news, fellas. You can quit your complaining because I’m leaving. I have more important things to do.
Jiminy: Wait. Don’t go.
Grumpy: Snow. Wait. Where are you going? (Snow White picks up an axe.)
Snow White: To kill the Queen.

SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. The Sheriff Department. Emma guides Mary Margaret to the interrogation room. Regina Mills awaits them.

Regina: Hello Miss Blanchard.
Mary Margaret: (to Emma) What is she doing here?
Emma: She asked to be here as a third party to make sure that I stay impartial. It can only help you. (Emma and Mary Margaret sit down.)
Mary Margaret: I have nothing to hide. Ask me anything.
Emma: (switches on the tape recorder) The heart was found buried near the old Troll Bridge. It had been cut out by what appears to be a hunting knife. Have you ever been to that bridge before?
Mary Margaret: Yes, many times. It’s where David and I liked to meet.
Emma: (standing up) Mr. Nolan?
Mary Margaret: Yes.
Emma: And you met there for what purpose? (Emma opens a cabinet. Wearing examination gloves she takes out the jewelry box.)
Mary Margaret: We were having an affair. I’m not proud of what happened and I’m sorry. But that doesn’t change the fact that I did not kill Kathryn.
Emma: (places the jewelry box in front of Mary Margaret) Have you ever seen this before?
Mary Margaret: Yes, that’s my jewelry box.
Emma: That’s where we found the heart in.
Mary Margaret: Don’t you see what’s happening here. Someone stole that box and put the heart in it. I didn’t have anything to do with it. I’m innocent.
Regina: (takes Mary Margaret ’s hand) Miss Blanchard, it’s okay. I know what you’re going through. I know what it’s like to lose someone you love. To be publicly humiliated. It put me in a very dark place. Changed me. I can only imagine what losing David Nolan did to you.
Mary Margaret: (withdraws her hand) But, I haven’t changed. I’m still the same person I’ve always been - a good person. I did not do this.
Emma: (to Regina) Can I speak to you in the hallway, please? (Both, Emma and Regina exit the room.) I told you to leave the questioning to me.
Regina: How do you know she didn’t do it? If that box was stolen from her as she claims, don’t you think there’d be signs of a break in? Well, you’re her roommate. Tell me, has there been a break in? She’s a woman who’s had her heart broken. And that (pauses) that can make you do unspeakable things.

SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Past. A Black Knight rides through the woods. Snow White hides behind a tee and watches him. Snow White is able to throw the Black Knight of his horse. She approaches her captive. The Black Knight groans. Using the blunt end of the pick axe, she hits the knight’s ankle.

Snow White: It’ll heal. Eventually.
Black Knight: What do you want?
Snow White: Information. Where’s the Queen?
Black Knight: Why would I tell you?
Snow White: (crouches down beside him) Do you know what a diamond is? It’s the strongest substance known to man or beast. Beautiful. Precious. Nearly impervious to destruction. Nearly. (showing him her axe) This is an axe from the dwarves’ mines|. It’s a special blade. It can, believe it, or not, actually cut a diamond. Imagine what it can do to human flesh. (The knight tries to crawl away) Soft, pliable, tender flesh. (Raising the axe Snow White intends to hit him again.)
Black Knight: (promptly speaking) She’s at her castle. But, only for the night. In the morning she leaves for the summer palace. Please! That’s all I know.
Snow White: That summer palace was build for my mother. (She knocks him out.)

SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Grumpy confronts Snow White who has stripped the Black Knight of his armor and weapons.''

Grumpy: What do you think you’re doing?
Snow White: I already told you. I’m going to kill the Queen.
Grumpy: By stealing the armor of a knight?
Snow White: Whatever I have to do to get into that castle. So, get out of my way. I have to get there before she departs.
Grumpy: Have you lost your mind? You really think this disguise is going to fool anybody?
Snow White: I’m getting in there. (She walks to the horse)
Grumpy: Listen to yourself. All you care about is revenge. You can’t even see reality anymore.
Snow White: What I don’t need, is to be lectured by a dwarf with a bad attitude.
Grumpy: I didn’t come here to lecture you. I came here to help you.
Snow White: Help me? How?
Grumpy: By taking you back to Rumpelstiltskin. He’s the one who gave you the potion in the first place – the one that took away all your memories of your Prince. If anyone can give them back to you, it’s him.
Snow White: I don’t want my memories back. That’s why I took the potion.
Grumpy: And it changed you. Maybe he can at least bring you back to the person you used to be. He’s the most powerful man in the world. He can do anything.
Snow White: Anything?

SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Blanchard Apartment. Looking for signs of a break in Emma examines the door closely. She then turns to investigate the apartment’s windows. Henry Mills enters.

Emma: Henry. What are you doing here? Why aren’t you in school?
Henry: We have to help Miss Blanchard.
Emma: I am helping her. That’s why I’m searching the apartment. But you got to go home.
Henry: Not going to happen.
Emma: Just stay out of the way.
Henry: So, what are we looking for.
Emma: I’m trying to see, if, maybe, someone broke in. (enters the bedroom) Looking for busted door jambs, (examines the window) broken glass, muddy footprints. That kind of thing.
Henry: So, you think someone’s setting her up?
Emma: It’s the only thing that makes sense. The only problem is, nobody’s got a motive.
Henry: My mom does.
Emma: Regina?
Henry: She hates Snow White. (shrugs) Hey, you wanted a motive.
Emma: Well, I don’t think "She hates Snow White." will hold up in a court, Henry. (Emma takes a closer look at a picture standing on her desk. Tired Emma lies down on the bed. Suddenly, a rumbling noise can be heard. Searching for the source of the noise Emma removes the cover of a vent.)
Henry: Did you find something?
(Examining the vent more closely Emma finds an object wrapped in a cloth. Unwrapping it Emma reveals a small hunting knife.)

SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Granny's Diner. Ruby serves Henry a cacao with cinnamon. August Booth enters and joins an upset Henry.

August: I don’t think that hot chocolate it’s gonna drink itself. You’re upset about your teacher, aren’t you?
Henry: She didn’t do it. Why can’t anyone see that?
August: Because most people just see what’s right in front of them. I don’t think you gonna find the answers you want at the bottom of that mug.
Henry: Then where?
August: That book in your bag. You know, I’m a writer. So, I’m partial to finding my answers in the literary form.
Henry: It’s just a book.
August: Is it?
Henry: Yeah.
August: I think, we both know that’s not the case. (to Ruby) Can I have a water, please? (Ruby serves him a glass of water.)
Henry: (curious) What do you know about it?
August: I know it’s a book of stories.
Henry: Aren’t all books?
August: Stories that really happened.
Henry: (leans closer) You think my book is real?
August: As real as I am.
Henry: How do you know?
August: Let’s just say that I’m a believer. And I wanna help others see the light. That, my friend, is why I’m here.
Henry: But I already believe.
August: Oh, I’m not here for you, buddy. I’m here for Emma.
Henry: So, you wanna get her to believe? Why don’t you just tell her.
August: There are some people - like you and me - we can go on faith. But others - like Emma - they need proof.
Henry: Last time I tried to find proof I got trapped in a sinkhole.
August: There are less dangerous places to look. (August indicates his book to the boy. Then, he gets up and prepares to leave, patting Henry on the shoulder. Henry opens the book and starts to read.)

SCENE: Enchanted Forest. Past. Prince Charming dismounts his horse in order to examine footprints in the snow more closely. He unsheathes his sword and carefully follows them. A few yards ahead a nude knight wanders through the woods.

Prince Charming: Put your hands where I can see them. (The knight turns around to face him) Uh, on second thought, don’t. (He hands the knight a blanket) Who did this?
Black Knight: (wraps himself in the blanket) She’s crazy. She had a pick axe. She threatened to skin me.
Prince Charming: The Evil Queen?
Black Knight: No. Snow White.
Prince Charming: (with his blade he points at the knight’s throat.) What?
Black Knight: (raising his hands in a conciliating manner) She said she wanted to kill the Queen. I’ve never seen someone so bloodthirsty.
Prince Charming: No. Snow’s not bloodthirsty. She’s not a killer. I know her.
Black Knight: Maybe you don’t.

SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Storybrooke Town Hall. Mayor's Office. Regina skins an apple. There’s a knock on the door and David enters her office.

David: Hey. Can I talk to you?
Regina: Of course.
David: These accusations against Mary Margaret - they’ve been gnawing away at me. She didn’t do this. (David takes a seat)
Regina: I understand what you’re going through. It’s painful when someone we care about betrays us.
David: She’s a good person. I know her.
Regina: Maybe, you don’t. Maybe, you just want to. Everyone has a dark side, David.
David: Yeah, sure, but having a dark side and doing something so evil - that’s a different thing. That’s not what she is.
Regina: Perhaps. I always believe that evil isn’t born. It’s made.
David: All due respect, Regina, I don’t think you know much about evil. (standing up)
Regina: Well, if she didn’t do it, then who did?
David: I don’t know. That’s what I’ve been trying to figure out. But those blackouts I’ve been having they’ve made everything so hazy.
Regina: (standing up) Please tell me, you’re not accusing yourself.
David: You know, maybe if I could clear up my missing time, I could prove Mary Margaret’s innocence.
Regina: You’re very sweet, David. But you’re also wrong. Evil doesn’t always look evil. Sometimes it’s starring right at us and we don’t even realize it.
