SCENE: Somewhere in Maine. Past. Kurt Flynn and Owen Flynn are camping. The father teaches his son how to correctly tie a lanyard keychain.
Kurt: Yeah, there you go. That's it. A little tighter. Now pull the loops, as tight as you can. Ah, look at that. I mean, it's not bad for your first one.
Owen: Green and red, like Luke and Darth's lightsabers.
Kurt: Hey. Here is one for your collection. Your.. grandpa taught me how to make these when I was your age.
Owen: You're giving it to me? It's mine now? You weren't very good at this when you were my age, were you?
Kurt: (laughs) All right, smart guy. Yeah, time to get dinner started.
(A strong gust of wind begins)
Owen: What is that?
Kurt: Probably an electrical storm. Put the fire out. Get in the tent!
Kurt: Owen. We'll be all right, kid.
(Dark Curse blasts through the woods)
SCENE: Somewhere in Maine. Past. Kurt and Owen woke up and found trees knocked onto the ground, one tree even crushed their car.
Owen: Whoa. What kind of storm was that?
Kurt: It's a big one.
(They begin walking and searching for the nearest highway)
Kurt: The highway should be just over that ridge, and then we'll get a ride to the nearest town.
Kurt: That's what you get for camping in the boonies, I guess.
Owen: (sees Storybrooke) Dad. Look.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Kurt and Owen are walking down the street.
Kurt: This is impossible. We drove through here yesterday. There was nothing here. It's like someone dropped a town right on top of us.
(Kurt and Owen are looking at the Storybrooke clock tower. A sheriff's car stops behind them. The door of the car opens to reveal Sheriff Graham.)
Sheriff Graham: You need some help? You two look lost.
Kurt: Who are you? What is this place?
Sheriff Graham: Name's Graham. I'm the sheriff.
(Kurt and Graham shake hands.)
Sheriff Graham: Welcome to Storybrooke.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Mayor's House, Regina's bedroom. She wakes up for the first time in Storybrooke. She looks out of the window, sees the town of Storybrooke and realizes that Dark curse worked.
Regina: I did it. I won.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Regina is walking down the street and sees Marco struggling to repair a sign.
Marco: That should hold you.
Ruby: I cannot believe you put me on the early shift.
Granny: Not my fault you stayed out all night. When I put over easy on the menu, I was talking about the eggs!
Archie: Morning, Madame Mayor.
Regina: Good morning, Crick—Dr. Hopper.
Archie: Beautiful day, isn't it?
Regina: Yes. Yes, it is.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Storybrooke Elementary School. Mary Margaret, holding a bird in her hand, is teaching.
Mary Margaret: As we build our birdhouses, remember: what you're making is a home. Not a cage. A bird is free, and will do what it will. This is for them, not us. They're loyal creatures. (Releases the bird out the window; it flies up to a birdhouse.) If you love them and they love you, they will always find you. (Bell rings; class rises.) We'll pick this up after recess. No running! (Regina enters the room) Miss Mills, what are you doing here?
Regina: Refresh my memory. How long have you been a teacher here?
Mary Margaret: Um I -- I'm not sure. As long as I can remember.
Regina: Come with me.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Storybrooke General Hospital. Mary Margaret and Regina are in front of John Doe's room.
Mary Margaret: Why are we in the hospital?
Regina: Tell me. Do you know this man?
Mary Margaret: No. Why? Who is he?
Regina: He's a John Doe, coma patient. No one's claimed him.
Mary Margaret: Maybe someday he'll wake up. Maybe someone who loves him will find him.
Regina: That would be nice for him. But I wouldn't count on it.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Granny's Bed and Breakfast. Regina prepares to eat.
Sheriff Graham: Good morning, Mayor.
Regina: That uniform suits you nicely, sheriff. So well-fitted.
Sheriff Graham: Want me to come over later?
Owen: Hey! You like apple pancakes, too?
Regina: Who are you? Whose child is this? (to Marco) Is he yours?
Marco: Mine? No. I was never so lucky.
Kurt: He's mine. And you'll have to excuse him. His manners are a little rough around the edges. I'm, uh, Kurt Flynn. Sorry to interrupt your breakfast, but we're, uh, looking to rent a hotel room for the night.
Regina: Why would you need a hotel room?
Kurt: The same reason that most people need one. We need a place to sleep.
Regina: Would you excuse me for a moment? Graham.
Granny: I got a room for you.
Regina: Who the hell are those people?
Sheriff Graham: Uh, I don't know. They just showed up. They were camping in the woods near the toll bridge. I was just as surprised to see them as you are.
Regina: I don't like surprises, sheriff. I find them threatening. And do you know what happens when I feel threatened? Bad things.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Regina is mourning her mother's death. Mr. Gold enters mausoleum.
Mr. Gold: Black always was your color.
Regina: I'm here to bury my mother. So if you've come to gloat..
Mr. Gold: I came to pay my respects. We had our differences, but Cora will always have a place in my heart.
Regina: You killed her to save your own life.
Mr. Gold: Sadly, desperate times call for desperate measures.
Regina: Like getting Mary Margaret to trick me into killing my own mother? You may be able to hide behind your dagger, but she can't. She's going to die for what she did.
Mr. Gold: Oh, come on. We both know killing her will cost you the thing you want most - Henry. Why don't you just give up this obsession with vengeance? You know it can never make you happy.
Regina: Yes, it will.
Mr. Gold: You had a whole curse worth of vengeance, and what did it get you? A gaping hole in your heart.
Regina: That was your curse.
Mr. Gold: Which you cast. Still haven't learned your lesson, have you?
Regina: What lesson?
Mr. Gold: The same one your mother learned a long time ago. You can't have everything. She wanted power, ripped out her own heart to get it. You want vengeance? Henry's the price you'll pay. Time to cut your losses.
Regina: Never. I will have my son, and I will have my vengeance.
I will find a way to have everything.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Mary Margaret's apartment. Emma, David and Henry are talking.
David: She won't eat a bite.
Henry: What's wrong with her?
Emma: Nothing. She's just a little sick.
Henry: You guys are lying to me, aren't you?
Emma: No one's lying.
Henry: You are, just like you did about my dad.
Emma: Henry, I - He's right. No more lying.
Emma: He deserves to know. Here's the thing, Henry. Cora's death... Mary Margaret was partially responsible for it, and that's why she's so upset.
Henry: No. No, no, she couldn't.
(Someone knocks on the door)
Emma: She was trying to protect us.
Henry: But she's Snow White. She wouldn't hurt anybody.
David: (to Mr. Gold) Get out!
Mr. Gold: I think you're gonna wanna hear what I have to say - for her sake.
Emma: What are you talking about?
Mr. Gold: Regina. She's planning to strike back - against your mother.
Henry: What is she gonna do to her?
Mr. Gold: Oh, she didn't say.
David: No. You don't get to come in here and just drop a bomb like that. You're gonna figure this out. And you're gonna help us.
Mr. Gold: And why should I?
David: Because aside from us being family now, Mary Margaret saved your life. Now you owe her a debt. And you always pay your debts, don't you? You're gonna help us stop Regina.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Kurt and Owen are eating at Granny's. Regina walks in.
Kurt: (to Granny) Thank you, it was really good.
Regina: You're in my seat.
Kurt: Sorry, miss...?
Regina: Mayor Mills. (to Owen) I always sit in that seat.
Owen: But I'm already sitting here.
(Regina sits next to Owen)
Regina: I-I just spoke with our mechanic. He assured me that your car will be repaired by the end of the week.
Kurt: Really? He told me it would take at least two weeks just to get the parts.
Regina: Well, things tend to get done quickly when the Mayor asks for them.
And I'd hate to keep you from getting home to...?
Kurt: New Jersey. Home of the boss. Anyway, thank you, your mayorness. Mayor. Whatever. We really appreciate it. Let's go.
(Owen takes a lanyard keychain out of his pocket and gives it to Regina)
Regina: What's this?
Owen: It's a gift for letting me sit in your seat.
Regina: For me?
(Regina takes it and smiles.)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Mayor's House, Regina's bedroom. She wakes up with Sheriff Graham next to her. She looks out of the window and smiles.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Storybrooke General Hospital. Mary Margaret leaves flowers in John Doe's room. Regina is standing behind her, smiling.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Regina is walking down the street and sees Marco struggling to repair a sign.
Marco: Maybe this time, you won't fall.
Ruby: (to Granny) This is the last time I'm working the early shift.
Archie: Good morning, Madame Mayor. Beautiful day, isn't it?
(Regina bumps into Mary Margaret)
Mary Margaret: Oh, Madame Mayor, I'm so sorry.
Regina: You should be! Watch where you're going next time.
(Mary Margaret nods and walks away. Regina smiles.)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Mayor's House, Regina's bedroom. She wakes up with Sheriff Graham next to her.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Storybrooke General Hospital. Mary Margaret leaves flowers in John Doe's room. Regina is standing behind her, but she looks bored.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Regina is walking down the street and sees Marco struggling to repair a sign and Ruby and Granny arguing. She looks bored.
Archie: Beautiful day.
Regina: Save it. (she bumps into Mary Margaret.)
Mary Margaret: Oh! Mayor Mills, I am so sorry.
Regina: I ran into you. Why are you apologizing?
Mary Margaret: No, I should have been looking where I was going.
Regina: You're not even going to fight back?!
Mary Margaret: Fight back? Why would I do that? (walks away)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Mr. Gold Pawnbroker & Antiquities Dealer. Regina enters, while Mr. Gold is dusting one of the antiques.
Regina: I'm not happy.
Mr. Gold: I believe Dr. Hopper's office is down the street.
Regina: Oh, I don't wanna talk to him. I wanna talk to you.
Mr. Gold: Very well, Madame Mayor. What is it you wanna talk about?
Regina: This town. This isn't the deal we made.
Mr. Gold: I'm sorry. I don't know what you're talking about.
Regina: You don't, do you? I was supposed to be happy here.
Mr. Gold: Forgive me, but, um, you're the Mayor. You're the most powerful woman in the town. What is there to be unhappy about?
Regina: Everyone in this town does exactly what I want them to!
Mr. Gold: (smiles) And that's a problem?
Regina: Well, they do it because they have to, not because they want to.
It's not real.
Mr. Gold: I'm sorry, what exactly is it you want?
Regina: Nothing you can give me.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Regina is at the call box.
Regina: Hello, Kurt? Mayor Mills. Good. You're still here. I would love to see Owen before you leave. Would you two like to come over for dinner tonight? Great.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Mausoleum. Regina is frantically searching through her mother's belongings.
Regina: Where is it?
(Regina begins to cry when she opens her mother's locket which contains an image of them both. In pain, she begins ripping out of her mother's dresses that reveals a written curse.)
Regina: Thank you, mommy.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. David and Mr. Gold walk into Regina's mausoleum to discover the mess she has left in her wake.
Mr. Gold: Well, it appears we just missed our dear Queen.
David: What is this?
Mr. Gold: These are Cora's belongings. Looks like Regina's planning to use one of her spells on Mary Margaret.
(Mr. Gold sees that two ingredients are missing from a potion case)
Mr. Gold: Something's missing. Chimera blood. And viper's eye.
David: What kind of curse do you need those for?
Mr. Gold: It's the curse of the empty-hearted.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Mary Margaret's Apartment. Mr. Gold, David, and Emma are talking.
Emma: What the hell does that do?
Mr. Gold: In theory, it has the power to make someone love you.
Emma: Doesn't that break magic laws? You can't bring someone back to life. You can't force someone to love you.
Mr. Gold: This particular spell can make someone think they love you. And if you're as desperate for love as Regina appears to be, you just might believe it.
Henry: (coming down the stairs) She's using it on me, isn't she?
David: Hey, buddy, why don't you go back upstairs, let us handle this.
Henry: No! (He pushes past David and runs over to Emma.) Emma! You said you were going to be honest with me. Now, why is Regina using this curse?
Mr. Gold: Because it's the only way she can get everything she wants, that she can get you.
Henry: But if all she wants is me...
Mr. Gold: Your mother is a complicated woman. She wants your love of course, but she also wants vengeance... on Mary Margaret.
David: How does the curse give her both?
Mr. Gold: Because the last ingredient she needs to enact the curse is the heart of the person she hates the most.
Emma: You have to stop her.
Mr. Gold: Oh, I don't have to do anything. On the contrary, I believe warning you fulfills my debt.
David: Not even close. This is my wife's life we're talking about.
Emma: Not to mention your grandson's.
Mr. Gold: Well, wars have costs.
Mr. Gold: Well, this is a blood feud, dearie. One that goes back a long time. And the only way you can end a blood feud is by the spilling of more blood. That is the only way I know to eliminate your Regina problem.
David: How, by killing her?
Emma: Is there no other option?
Mr. Gold: I'm afraid not.
Henry: Stop! Listen to yourselves. You're talking about killing my mom! You used to be heroes. What happened to you? (He shakes his head and runs out of the apartment.)
Emma: Henry. No matter how this plays out, we need to keep him as far away from it as possible. (She runs after him.)
Mr. Gold: She's right. Cora is more dangerous because she didn't have a heart. Regina is even more dangerous because she does.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Regina, Owen and Kurt are eating dinner at Regina's house.
Kurt: This is delicious lasagna, isn't it Owen?
Owen: Not really.
Regina: It's okay. I know I'm not the greatest cook. Unless it involves apples. (She chuckles and turns to look at Owen.) Speaking of which. How would you like to help me make turnovers for dessert? There's a bunch of apples sitting in the sink. Why don't you go pick out some red ones? (Owen gets up and leaves.)
Kurt: (laughs) Owen is a bit of a free spirit. Like his mom.
Regina: Is she back in New Jersey? With the boss?
Kurt: With the boss. She uh... she passed away six months ago.
Regina: I'm sorry.
Kurt: That's why I brought him here actually. I thought that camping, new surroundings, that might help him take his mind off of things, but...
Regina: I came here looking to start over too. It hasn't turned out quite the way I'd hoped.
Kurt: And why's that?
Regina: What good's a new life if you don't have anyone to share it with?
Owen: (yelling) Hey! I thought we were making desert! (Regina gets up and heads to the kitchen. She helps Owen make the turnovers and puts them in the oven.)
Owen: So, how come you're not a mom?
Regina: It just didn't work out that way I guess.
Owen: It's too bad. You'd be really good at it.
Regina: Thank you, Owen.
Owen: So how much longer? (He points at the oven.)
Regina: Patience. They're almost done. How are you liking Storybrooke so far?
Owen: It's better than New Jersey.
Regina: You don't miss your home? Your friends?
Owen: I hate it there! All the kids at my school treat me weird now.
Regina: Because of what happened to your mother?
Owen: (nods) Nobody gets it. It's like-
Regina: There's a piece of your heart missing.
Kurt: (He walks into the kitchen.) How's desert coming?
Regina: Great! Owen and I were just talking, and I know this might sound crazy, but how would you too feel about sticking around town a little longer?
Kurt: Uh, stick around? As in?
Regina: Move here! I could get you a job at the city, and there's a great school for Owen.
Owen: Please Dad, can we?
Regina: It could be a chance for a new start.
Kurt: Look, I appreciate everything you've done for us, but out life is in New Jersey. It's not here.
Regina: Of course.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Emma brings Henry into Granny's Diner to talk with Neal.
Henry: Why are you bringing me here? I don't want to talk to you.
Emma: You don't have to.
Neal: Hey, buddy! I saved you a seat!
Emma: I'm going to go get a coffee.
Ruby: Here you go. One large sundae, extra everything.
Neal: Thanks, Ruby! (He pushes the sundae across the table to Henry.)
Henry: Extra everything?
Henry: You think I don't know a bribe when I see one? (He pushes the sundae to the side.)
Neal: That obvious, huh?
Henry: So what do you want?
Neal: Your mom told me about everything that's been going on and we thought that Storybrooke might not be the safest place for you right now. So I was thinking, why don't we go to New York?
Henry: New York.
Neal: Regina can't cast that curse if you're in New York. There's no magic there.
Henry: So we should find a way to get rid of magic. My mom wouldn't want to cast the curse, my family wouldn't want to kill her, it would solve everything!
Neal: Yeah. You know what, you're right! But until then, why don't you come with me.
Emma: (She accepts a coffee from Ruby at the counter.) Thanks, Ruby.
(Enter Greg Mendell.)
Greg: Excuse me. Can I get this sandwich wrapped up to go? I was thinking about going on a hike.
Emma: A hike, huh?
Greg: Well, Dr. Whale said it would be good for me to get on my feet. Plus, I'm kind of a nature photography nerd.
Emma: Just thought you'd be back in Pennsylvania by now.
Greg: This town's starting to grow on me. (He gives Ruby some money.) Thank you very much. (He leaves the diner.)
Emma: (She walks back over to Neal. Henry is not at the table.) How did it go?
Neal: Went good. He said yes.
Neal: Yeah, he's in the bathroom right now. I'm just gonna go home and pack. Not bad for day three as a dad if I do say so myself.
Emma: Wait, where's his backpack?
Neal: I don't know, he took it with him.
Emma: To the bathroom? Did you really fall for that? He's your son.
Neal: (with realization) He's running.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Henry is running through the woods.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Mary Margaret's apartment. Regina walks up the stairs and uses magic to open the door to the apartment. She heads toward Mary Margaret.
Mr. Gold: (Steps in front of Regina) Nice try dearie. Did you really think it was going to be that easy?
Regina: (To Mary Margaret) He can't be your guard dog forever. (Leaves)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Regina enters the Marine Garage.
Billy: So, what can I do to help Madame Mayor?
Regina: Kurt Flynn's car.
Billy: The one you asked me to fix ASAP.
Regina: Yes. Plans have changed. I now need Mr. Flynn and his son to stay a while longer. Perhaps you can take a couple
extra days with the repairs?
Billy: I'm afraid that Mr. Flynn already picked the car up.
Regina: What? When?
Billy: Ten minutes ago.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Regina is in her office. She pulls out Sheriff Graham's heart and speaks into it.
Regina: Sheriff. Our visitors are driving out of Storybrooke. Find them before they cross the town line, pull the car over
, and arrest the father for drunk driving. Then bring the boy to me. (She turns around and sees Kurt standing in the doorway. She puts the heart back in its box.) Kurt.
Regina: That wasn't what it sounded like.
Kurt: Don't want any trouble. Just came by to say thank you.
Regina: Wait. It was just a misunderstanding.
Kurt: No. I understood. We're leaving.
Regina: I'm not going to hurt him. Please don't leave.
Kurt: (Starts to leave. Sheriff Graham enters and pushes him against the desk.) What are you doing?
Sheriff Graham: I'm afraid you're under arrest for driving under the influence.
Kurt: What? Drunk? I'm not drunk and I sure as hell haven't been driving.
Sheriff Graham: Don't make this harder on yourself.
Kurt: (To Regina) What did you do to him? (To Sheriff Graham) She's controlling you. I don't know how but she had this glowing thing. It was shaped like a heart. Don't listen to her.
Sheriff Graham: You say you haven't been drinking. (Kurt lunges forward and knocks the box with Sheriff Graham's heart in it off the desk. Sheriff Graham falls back, and Kurt runs away.) What was that?
Owen: (Outside, Kurt gets in the car.) Dad, what's wrong?
Kurt: We got to get out of here. (He speeds away.)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Henry is running through the forest. He runs into Greg and falls.
Greg: Woah! (Helping Henry up.) Hey kid, you alright?
Greg: What are you doing out here all by yourself, huh?
Henry: Boy scout. Trying to get a merit badge. (Greg folds his arms and looks at Henry as if he doesn't believe him.) what are you doing out here?
Greg: I'm hiking. And I'm taking pictures of Maine scenic beauty.
Henry: The hiking trail's that way.(He points towards the trail.)
Greg: Okay. Thanks. Um, (He picks up Henry's bag and looks at the name tag.) Is it Henry? (He gives Henry the bag and Henry nods.) Well, good luck with your merit badge. (He walks away and Henry continues running.)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. David, Ruby, Emma, and Neal are looking for Henry in the Storybrooke Mines.
Ruby: Down here! He was in here.
Neal: Why would an eleven year old kid run away to the mines?
Emma: Wouldn't be the first time.
David: I think I know what he was looking for. (He shines his flashlight on a box of explosives.) The dynamite the dwarfs use for blasting.
Emma: What the hell would he want dynamite for?
Neal: To get rid of magic.
Emma: Wait, what?
Neal: At the diner he said someone should get rid of magic.
Ruby: So he's going to blow it up?
Neal: Where would he even go to do that?
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Henry approaches the Storybrooke Wishing Well and takes the dynamite out of his backpack.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Greg is walking through the forest. He is calling Regina.
Greg: Hi. Is this Henry's mother?
Regina: Who's asking?
Greg: My name's Greg Mendell.
Greg: The guy that crashed his car outside the town. See, I was out here hiking in the woods and he was by the White Pine Trail. And he was all by himself.
Regina: What was he doing out there? Is he okay?
Greg: I don't know. He ran off. But he seemed a little upset, and I just thought that you would want to know. That's all.
Regina: I'm on my way.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Kurt and Owen are driving through Storybrooke. Regina and Sheriff Graham are following them in a police cruiser.
Owen: What's going on dad? What do they want?
Kurt: We go to get out of here. Come on!
Kurt: Look out! (Sheriff Graham swerves to avoid hitting an oncoming car.)
Owen: Dad! Faster dad!
Kurt: (approaching the town line) I think we lost them.
Owen: (Sheriff Graham pulls in front of them , blocking the road.) Dad!
Kurt: Alright. Listen to me. Run away into the woods. Get away as far as you can. You call your uncle. Go.
Owen: No. Not without you. (He grips the lanyard key chain his father gave him.)
Kurt: There's a reason I gave you that. Because as long as you have it, I'll always be with you. You can do this. So do it. Run! Go! Go! Run! (Sheriff Graham opens the car door. Owen leaves the car and starts running towards the town line. Sheriff Graham tries to arrest Kurt, but Kurt fights back. Regina gets out of the police cruiser.) You may have this whole town wrapped around your finger. But not my son. You can't force him to stay with you!
Owen: (stops) Dad!
Kurt: Don't stop! Run! Run!
Regina: Owen. (approaching Owen) It's okay, I'm not going to hurt you.
Owen: Why are you doing this?
Regina: I just want you to stay with me. You said you liked it here. You want to stay here, don't you?
Owen: Not like this.
Regina: I'm sorry. I just wanted us to be happy. (Owen runs off.)
Kurt: (from inside the police cruiser) Run Owen.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Henry is lighting a match next to the Storybrooke Wishing Well.
Regina: Henry? What are you doing?
Henry: I'm getting rid of magic. It's ruining everything. And you can't stop me.
Regina: All that's going to do is get you killed.
Henry: You just say that because you need magic. So you can cast that curse on me.(Henry starts to light the dynamite but Regina uses magic to make it vanish.)
Regina: I can't lose you Henry. You mean too much to me.
Henry: Then don't cast the curse. Don't kill Mary Margaret.
Regina: Henry, she has to pay.
Henry: The curse. It won't make me love you for real. It'll be fake.
Regina: But it will be something. I know it's hard for you to understand right now but you'll see. We can be happy. We can have everything.
Henry: Not like this.
Emma: Hey Regina! Get away from my son!
Regina: He's not yours. He's mine. And after I cast this, you'll never see him again.
David: That's never going to happen.
Emma: If you want to kill Mary Margaret you're going to have to go through us.
Regina: Okay. (Regina starts to use magic, but Henry runs between her and Emma, Neal, and David.)
Neal: Henry, get out of the way!
Henry: Not until someone helps me destroy magic!
Regina: There's no way to get rid of it. You can't just blow it up!
Emma: Magic isn't the problem, kid. It's her.
Henry: It's not just her. It's everyone. Look what magic did to Mary Margaret. (to Regina) Look what it did to you! It's ruining everything. It makes good people do terrible things.
Emma: And bad people.
Henry: Please. It's going to destroy my family. Help me get rid of it.
Regina: I can't do that Henry. But there is something I can do. (Regina burns the scroll with the curse on it.)
Henry: Thank you. (He goes to Emma and they all walk away, leaving Regina alone.)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Past. Owen is on the other side of the town line with two police officers.
Owen: Here! This is where they took my dad!
Captain: There's nothing here kid.
Owen: No. No. This is where Storybrooke was. By this rock.
Captain: Son, there isn't a town called Storybrooke anywhere in Maine.
Owen: So you don't believe me?
Captain: Look. Now you've been through a lot. (Owen runs closer to the town line.) Son!
Owen: I'll find you, Dad. I promise! I'll never stop looking! (On the Storybrooke side of the town line, Regina, hidden to Owen, touches to magic barrier keeping her from crossing.)
Captain: Come on son. Come on, let's go. It's okay. (The officers lead Owen away.)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Mary Margaret's apartment. Mr. Gold is talking on the phone.
Mr. Gold: Okay. (He hangs up.) That was your husband. It seems that Henry convinced Regina to destroy the curse. Which means my services are no longer required.
Mary Margaret: How do you do it?
Mr. Gold: Do what?
Mary Margaret: Live with yourself. Knowing all the bad things you've done.
Mr. Gold: Well, you tell yourself you did the right thing. And if you say it often enough, one day you might actually believe it.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Regina answers to door at her house. She sees Mary Margaret.
Mary Margaret: Kill me.
Mary Margaret: Regina, we have been fighting for so long. It's cost us so much. It has to end before anyone else dies. So please, just do it.
Regina: Henry would never forgive me. But do you know what my problem is? I never learn from my mistakes. (She rips out Mary Margaret's heart.) Huh.
Mary Margaret: What?
Regina: (She shows Mary Margaret the heart, which has a black spot on it.) Do you see that?
Mary Margaret: What did you do to it?
Regina: Oh, I didn't do that. You did it. You darkened yourself.
Mary Margaret: No. No. No.
Regina: Yes. And once you blacken your heart, it only grows darker. And darker. Trust me. I know.
Mary Margaret: So crush it. Do it. Crush it. Get it over with.
Regina: And put you out of your misery? I don't need to destroy you. You're doing it to yourself. And along the way, you'll bring down that perfect little family you fought so hard to reunite. And then Henry will be mine.
Mary Margaret: Please kill me. Please just kill me.
Regina: You see, I can have everything. (She replace Mary Margaret's heart.) Thanks to you. Now get off my porch. (She goes inside and slams the door.)
Greg: (He has been filming the scene from the sidewalk. He runs to his car and looks at the lanyard key chain on his set of keys.) I'll find you, Dad. I promise. (He starts the engine and drives away.)
