That map will show you where Henry is... only when you stop denying who you really are.
Peter Pan to Emma src

Pan's Map is a magical item featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. It first appears in the second episode of the third season


After First Curse

In Neverland, Emma wakes up in the middle of the night to voices. She investigates and raises her sword in alarm when spooked by a young boy, who presents himself as Peter Pan. He lets her know that her son, Henry, is still alive and wants to give her a map to find him. With a smile, Pan verifies it's the manner of how Emma finds him since she's the only one who can. He heeds that the map will only work when she stops denying her true self. Later, Emma makes the effort to unveil the map by stating facts about herself, with encouragement from her parents, but nothing works. Tired of playing games, Regina snatches the map and casts a locator spell on it, which leads them straight to Pan, who then sends the Lost Boys to engage them in combat. Emma ends up pinning one boy down, but the expression in his eyes frightens her and she backs off. Following the battle, Mary Margaret opens up a dialogue with Emma about why she withdrew from the fight earlier on. Reluctantly, Emma admits that the boy had the same look of despair she had while growing up in the foster system as a lost, unimportant girl desperately longing for the parents who gave her up. Emma confesses to being what she's always been, an orphan, causing the map to uncover its contents. They group form a strategy to travel towards Pan's camp and begin assemble for leaving. Hook asks Emma how she got the map to work, which Emma briefs that she just followed Pan's instructions. ("Lost Girl")

The group heads through the jungle, following the directions of their newly unlocked map. Emma takes out the map to check, but is shocked to see the camp is now behind them. Regina accuses Emma of getting them lost, but Hook points out that Pan moved camp. Emma wonders how they'll find Henry is Pan's camp keeps moving. Disappointed that their whole trek has been for nothing, the group begins to discuss alternate solutions. ("Quite a Common Fairy")
