He wants to fly again, and remembers that pixie dust is necessary to fly. When Rumplestiltskin refuses to climb a tree to get pixie dust, Malcolm does it, and is greeted at the top by the shadow, which resides over Neverland. The shadow tells Malcolm that he will not be able to enjoy Neverland's power with the burden of his child, leading Malcolm to return to the ground and give up his son, saying that "A child can't have a child." As the shadow drags Rumplestiltskin back to the Enchanted Forest, he sees his father turn into Peter Pan.
Pan is greeted by the shadow, who tells him that his youth is not eternal, and that when the hourglass on Skull Island runs out of time, he will die. Pan says he will search for a way to be immortal, at some point learning that the heart of the truest believer is the only thing that can save him.

The Lost Boys eventually retreat, and Emma and the others go back to their camp.

When Emma says she is an orphan, the map appears. Mary Margaret is upset, but admits that Emma was an orphan, and it is her job to change that. While Emma is picking berries, Pan appears and tells her that by the end of her time in Neverland, she really will be an orphan.

When they go to Tink's house, Regina stays behind and is ambushed by Tink, who threatens to kill her with Dreamshade. Regina makes it easier by ripping out her own heart and giving it to Tink, and then gives a speech about how Tink should choose revenge over love. She asks Tink to help her find her son. When she says that she loves Henry, Tink agrees not to kill her, but refuses to help. When everybody else comes back, Mary Margaret tells Tink that if she helps them, she can come home with them to Storybrooke. Tink accepts. David asks her how that worked, and Mary Margaret says it is because it worked for her, that she never had a home until she had him, and that he was all she needed, which makes David feel guilty because he is dying of Dreamshade poisoning and hiding it.Back at camp, Tink tells Regina that by not meeting Robin Hood, she ruined his life too. Meanwhile, elsewhere on the island, Neal lands and is found by Felix.

Hook tells them that Baelfire is the only one to have escaped Neverland without Pan's permission, and leads them to his cave. They find many drawings on the wall, and they also find a coconut with holes in the top half and a candle in the bottom. Emma lights the candle and closes the coconut, forming a star map that she believes leads home. Unfortunately, only Neal can decode the map, and they all believe he is dead, causing Emma to break down in tears.
Meanwhile, Rumpelstiltskin is painting his face and knocking out Lost Boys when he runs into Neal, who escaped from Felix easily, who Rumple at first believes is a vision and attempts to strangle him. Neal convinces his father he is the real thing, and comes up with a plan to get Henry back. He summons a giant squid and has Rumple extract the ink, then they storm Pan's camp and Rumple knocks out all the Lost Boys and Henry. Neal shoots Pan, who catches the arrow with one hand. He tells Neal he doesn't remember anything, but Neal does remember, which is why he coated not the tip, but the shaft. Pan is paralyzed, and they grab Henry and run.

Henry is taken back to Pan's camp, where he begins dancing with the Lost Boys.

As they exit the cave, David gets angry at Hook and collapses, and Hook notices that David is running out of time. He drops something that belonged to his brother and claims he found it, and then tells the rest of the group about his brother's sextant which he believes is at the top of Deadman's Peak. He and David climb it, and at the top, Hook is confronted by Pan telling him to kill David. Instead, Hook leads David to the magical island water that can cure his Dreamshade poisoning in exchange for David never leaving the island. David drinks it.
Meanwhile, Emma, Mary Margaret, and Regina capture the Lost Boy Henry cut earlier. When bribing him fails, Regina rips out his heart while Emma restrains Mary Margaret. Regina rips a compact mirror in half, and gives the Lost Boy half. They use the mirror to talk to Henry, who breaks it when he sees Pan coming, but he now has hope.
David and Hook return from Deadman's Peak, saying they failed to find the sextant. David tells everyone Hook saved his life, but lies about the circumstances. They all drink Hook's rum and part ways, and Emma kisses Hook but immediately tells him it was a one-time thing.
Pan comes to Hook and tells him Neal is still alive, giving him a choice whether or not to tell the others.

Mary Margaret immediately blurts the secret to Emma anyways. Regina gets annoyed and goes off to find Rumpelstiltskin. The rest of the group goes to Echo Caves, where Neal is being kept. They must all reveal a secret to get him free. Hook goes first, revealing that he is in love with Emma. Mary Margaret goes next, saying she wants to have another baby. David then admits that he can never leave Neverland because of his Dreamshade poisoning and the magical island water. A bridge is formed, and Emma walks across. She tries to break the cage open, but Neal tells her she has to reveal a secret. She tells him that she has always loved him, but that she hoped he was dead to avoid facing the pain she felt all over again. They exit the cave.
Meanwhile, Regina finds Rumpelstiltskin and shows him that his Fake Belle is really Pan's shadow. Rumpelstiltskin says he can only kill Pan if he dies too, but Regina says they don't need to, they can find another fate for him. Rumpelstiltskin says he has just the item in his shop, but they need to cross realms to get it. Regina summons Ariel, telling her that if she helps them she will get legs and find her Prince Eric.
|3||07||Rumple tells Ariel that when she is in Storybrooke she should find Belle and give her a sand dollar, and that Belle would help her find the item she needs. Ariel swims off.
While Ariel is in Storybrooke, Neal tells the rest of the group (minus Regina and Rumple) that to get of the island, they need Pan's shadow. Hook, Neal, and Emma go to Dark Hollow to retrieve it while David and Mary Margaret go to tell Tink that they have a way off of the island. Mary Margaret is upset at David for not telling her that he could never leave Neverland, but eventually forgives him and they agree to stay in Neverland together. In Dark Hollow, Neal and Hook fight over a lighter to impress Emma, leading them to be pinned to trees by shadows, and Emma hides and uses the magic Regina taught her to light the candle. The flame attracts the shadow, and Emma seals it inside the coconut. The trio exits the cave, and Emma scolds the other two for their childishness, telling them that if she has to choose someone, she chooses Henry. They meet up with David, Mary Margaret, and Tink, and they all commence with rescuing Henry.
Ariel returns to Regina and Rumple with Pandora's Box, and tells them about Wendy, who is trapped in Neverland and who Belle wants them to rescue. Rumple agrees to do his best to rescue her.
Meanwhile, Pan takes Wendy out of her cage, telling her it's time to play. Henry goes off into the woods and finds Wendy pretending to be sick. She tells him magic is dying and only he can save it. He goes back and Pan says if he saves magic, he will save Wendy. Henry agrees. He then shows Henry Skull Island, where he says Henry will save magic.

Neal tells them Rumple plans to kill Henry, and makes Rumple give him Pandora's Box and tells him not to use magic. Rumple agrees, and they begin walking towards Pan's compound. Rumple says he can cure David in Storybrooke, they just need more water. As they approach, they hear Wendy screaming for help. They rescue her after Regina knocks out the Lost Boys, and she tells them Pan needs Henry's heart to save him, which will make him immortal and kill Henry.
David and Mary Margaret go to get water to bring to Storybrooke, and Hook and Tink stay at Pan's compound with Wendy. Neal, Rumple, Regina, and Emma sail to Skull Island after Henry and Pan. Pan has cast a spell so no one with a shadow can pass, forcing Rumple to go in alone. He first takes Pandora's Box from Neal, then goes to face Pan, who switches the box out with a fake and traps Rumple inside the real one.
Emma and Regina create an eclipse to block out their shadows, and they and Neal rush in to save Henry, who has already ripped out his own heart. They tell him if he gives it to Pan he will die, but Pan says they are lying because they are adults, and Henry gives Pan his heart, immediately collapsing.
|3||09||Emma, Regina, and Neal go back to Pan's compound, taking Rumple with them. Emma sympathizes with the Lost Boys, getting them to tell her where Pan is by promising them a home in Storybrooke. They say Pan is at his thinking tree. Emma, Regina, and Mary Margaret go there, where they are tied to the tree by their own regrets. Regina, however, breaks free, saying she doesn't regret anything she did because it got her to Henry. She rips Henry's heart out of Pan and puts it back in Henry, saving him. Henry is tucked into bed, but Pan appears below decks. Rumple, who Neal freed from Pandora's Box, traps Pan in there, but Pan first switches bodies with Henry. Regina puts Pan's shadow in the sail, and Emma, Neal, Hook, Regina, Rumple, David, Mary Margaret, Wendy, Tink, Henry, Pan, and the Lost Boys sail off to Storybrooke.|
