After First Curse

During one night at the Rabbit Hole, Keith meets Lacey, who is happily playing pool by herself. He assumes she and Mr. Gold are no longer together, so he attempts to flirt with her, but Lacey turns him down. Later that night, Lacey goes out on a date at the diner with Mr. Gold. She excuses herself to the bathroom to fix her dress, but actually goes out to the alley to meet up with Keith since she finds Mr. Gold to be boring and not her type. They make out, and Mr. Gold eventually finds them. He angrily pushes Keith off of her, thinking she was being forced upon, but discovers it was planned. Keith later approaches Mr. Gold to apologize for putting the moves on Lacey since he assumed she and Mr. Gold broke up, which Mr. Gold bitterly affirms to be true. Frustrated that trying to be the good guy didn't win Lacey over, Mr. Gold lets his dark side loose by using magic to rip out Keith's tongue and hits him with his cane. Lacey, attracted to this part of Mr. Gold, watches with a mischievous look on her face as he continues to beat up Keith. ("Lacey")

After Third Curse

In Storybrooke, Keith hears about Robin's return to town, although this Robin is not the same one who died. As he walks down the street drinking his coffee, Robin looses an arrow on him. A startled Keith drops his cup just as the arrow pierces his jacket cuff and pins him to a pole. Robin then drops his bow and stalks over to get revenge on his sworn enemy, although Keith begs for mercy, insisting he's not the man he was in the past. Robin ignores his pleas and punches him in the face, knocking Keith to the ground, before pulling out a knife and holding it under his neck. Before Robin can kill him, Regina rushes over, but when Robin moves to slice the man's throat, she teleports Keith away to safety. ("Murder Most Foul")
