Previously on "Once Upon a Time"...
But without a genie, I can't use a wish to get back to Agrabah.
I think you will.
This is the sword from my vision.
This is the sword that killed you.
Now that we have it, maybe we can finally find who's responsible.
And then we can stop them.
Do you really think you've got something in your vault that can destroy it?
We don't want to destroy it. We want to understand it.
It's fated to kill her.
The hooded figure who uses it is fated to kill me.
We need to figure out who that is.
And then we can worry about destroying things.
Get away from him!
Uh, don't worry. I'm not here to desecrate Robin's final resting place.
I loved him, too, you know.
Losing Robin Hood was the best thing that ever happened to us.
It pushed you to liberate me, to free me from the prison of your self-loathing, to make me the best version of us.
Regina, don't let her get to you.
It's too late.
(Chuckles) What are you gonna do?
Throw a fireball at yourself?
The only way to hurt me is to hurt you, which is why your friends won't be able to stop me.
See? Love is weakness.
Say hi to Sleeping Beauty... or is it Sleeping Daddy?
(Gasps) Are you...?
We can kill her.
Thinking of going for a drive?
Rumple, I'm in no mood.
Looks like the Savior's found a weapon.
Now, normally I'd be upset that someone stole from me, but in this case, I think I'll let Ms. Swan's pilfering slide, and I can focus on finding my son.
And you can prepare... to die.
Now, no matter where you go, I can find you.
You see, what you did to me, to Belle, was unforgivable.
So if, at the end of the day, the Savior has yet to dispatch of you, rest assured that after I find my son, I will gladly finish the job.
So it can hurt the queen without hurting Regina.
The Evil Queen needs to die.
You sure about this, love?
In this case, the cliché is true.
I was... born for this.
Don't do it.
Henry, I can stop her.
With this sword, I can save all of us.
That sword is what kills you.
How do you know this isn't how you die... facing her?
What if she's the figure under the hood in your vision?
I can't sit out every battle because I think it might be my last.
I'm the Savior, kid.
You're also my mom.
Hey. That was Leroy.
Evil queen was spotted headed down Main Street.
All right. Let's go.
No. You can't.
The only way you can hurt her is to hurt yourself, and I can't let you do that.
I've got this.
You need to stay here with Henry.
(Sighs) Good luck.
Woman: Help me!
This is about me.
It's always about me.
I can snap her neck before you get a step closer.
What the devil?
Mm, not the Devil.
I believe I have three wishes.
Go ahead. Wish. They always come with a price.
That they do.
Which is why I'm not going to wish for something for me.
I'm going to give you something... something you've always wanted, something you confided about to Aladdin.
You heard us?
Don't you know by now?
I hear everything.
You wished you weren't the Savior.
So that's exactly what you're going to get.
Genie of Agrabah, I wish... that Emma Swan's wish to have never been the Savior... be granted.
What happened? Where did she go?!
Man: Happy birthday!
So tell us, Princess, what did you wish for?
Not a thing.
Everything I could ever want is right here.
Sweetie, something's bothering you.
Last night I had a dream that... that the Queen did cast her curse, and I was the Savior, as you told me.
Yes, but with the Queen defeated, all of that was avoided.
But in my dream, I was in this strange, fantastical land unlike anything I'd ever seen before, and we were still fighting her... all of us.
And this place... it had a name.
It was called...
It was only a dream.
Then when I woke up, I found this.
It was under my bed.
Well, one of the servants must have put it there.
They were cleaning the armory.
Oh, no. Oh, no.
I'm so sorry. Did I miss it?
I was practicing for tomorrow and lost track of time.
Can you please forgive me?
Of course, Henry.
I want your knighting ceremony to be perfect.
You're going to be the noblest knight the kingdom has ever seen.
Is that for me?
My name is Sir Henry, Knight of the Realm.
And I shall defend all of you.
Your father would be very proud of you.
I wish I'd known him.
Emma: He's watching over you.
He's always watching over you.
Now, then, I believe we have some celebrating to do.
The party's only just begun.
Of course, Daddy.
Oh, Henry, put that thing away.
This family is done fighting.
Where did she go?
We have no idea, Henry.
But we're trying to figure that out, right?
Because I didn't stay behind for you to screw things up.
Hey, take it easy on us. It was the Queen.
I know who it was.
Maybe use some of that defensive energy to figure out where she is!
You're her father. You must have some idea.
Yeah, I am her father.
That doesn't mean I know everything.
What about you, Hook? You live with her now.
Did she give you any ideas?
If I had an idea, don't you think I would have bloody well mentioned it by now?
How do you share a home with someone and not know their secrets?
Because we don't stand around and talk about what happens when a bloody genie appears, mate!
Please, stop fighting. Please.
Right now we're doing exactly what she wants.
She said we would tear ourselves apart, and that's exactly what we're doing.
The Evil Queen has thrown a lot of punches today.
I think I know a way to throw one back.
Show me our son.
Isn't that a bit on the nose? Even for you?
I like what I like.
So, it's your wish?
No. A request.
I suggest you heed it or things will be even less pleasant than they already are.
There's much we can explore in this master-genie relationship.
(Sighs) Ambition... met.
Having fun in my office?
Well, as a matter of fact, I was about to.
I'm not here for your perversions.
I'm here to get Emma back.
Oh, well, good luck with that.
You're not getting ahold of this lamp.
But even if you did, you can't undo wishes.
Now... take a seat.
Have a drink.
And give thanks where thanks is due.
What the hell are you talking about?
Be a dear and mix another, hmm?
I know you better than anyone, Regina.
(Chuckles) I am you.
And there was a time when all you wanted was to tear Snow and Charming apart and kick Emma Swan out of your town.
And I just did both.
That's why you'll never be happy.
You've won, and you can't even admit it.
If you could, you'd see that victory feels luxurious.
Yes, I... may not be able to get ahold of that genie lamp, but you're right.
We are the same person, which means you're not the only master of the lamp.
Genie of the Lamp, I wish to be sent to the same place as Emma Swan.
Your wish is my command, Master.
I'm... I'm looking for Emma. Have you seen her?
Have you seen her?
The Evil Queen is back.
No, no, you don't understand.
I'm... I'm... I'm not the Evil Queen anymore.
Move! Move! We must warn them!
The war is not over! Run!
(Humming "Once Upon a Dream")
♪ La da da... ♪
What the hell happened to you?
You're the Evil Queen.
You don't remember me.
I know exactly who you are.
My parents banished you.
Uh, no, they didn't. (Chuckles)
None of this is real.
I'm your friend.
You're no one's friend. My father said you were a liar.
No, it's not a lie.
Where we're from, we actually... share custody of a son.
Okay, it's complicated, but... the point is I risked my life coming here because you're the Savior... and your family needs you.
This is impossible. You were banished.
The fairies saw to it you could never return.
There's no way you can be here right now.
Show some respect.
It's "your majesties."
This is our kingdom now.
(Chuckling) You're so old.
Taunt us all you wish.
We shall never back down from protecting our people.
Emma, these... these people aren't real.
Mom, Daddy, please help.
No, they're... they're hallucinations that... a fake reality.
Step away from my daughter.
(Sighs) Emma, you have to believe me.
This blade banished you from the kingdom once before.
Now let's make it permanent.
Come on. This isn't you.
There has to be some part of you that knows that.
I can't do this. I can't just sit by and wait.
The Queen is out there, and she's got more wishes.
Don't worry, mate. Regina will be back with Emma soon enough.
And then what?
What's to stop her from making another wish that sends them someplace even worse?
She's done too much damage to this family.
I am not gonna wake my wife to tell her our daughter is missing!
I'm gonna get that lamp.
There is nothing I want more than to make the Evil Queen pay for what she did to Emma, but we are outgunned.
We don't have magic.
And we don't even have that sword that she thought she could use to defeat her.
We need a plan.
So, any thoughts on this plan?
I can't bear to think what she's doing to Aladdin.
I know, love. I know.
I think I got one.
Go to the sheriff's station.
Meet me there in one hour.
The Evil Queen's reign ends today.
There you are.
Come to see old Rumple, have you?
Who are you?
You! The Queen!
The apprentice is back!
Back to see the old master!
Back again, back again!
Please. I need your help.
Why would I help you, my greatest student... and failure?
My dark curse.
My most precious of curses.
You failed me.
That wasn't me.
You see, I'm... I'm not the Evil Queen in this reality...
(Scoffs) which isn't even a reality.
It's all... well, it's all fake.
Now I'm intrigued.
This world was created by a wish to trap Emma.
Oh, perhaps I can help you, after all!
For a price.
(Chuckles) A deal?
You're not even real.
Well, no one knows more about Saviors than I.
All I need in return is one teeny, tiny, little thing... my freedom.
It's not worth it.
The world is better off with you behind bars.
But you said this world isn't real.
What's the harm of letting a not-real me out of a not-real prison into a not-real world, hmm?
You actually have a point, but I know better than to take one of your deals in any realm.
Do you know why Emma became the Savior in the first place?
Every Savior needs a villain.
The Evil Queen.
But the real queen, not this sniveling, pathetic, diluted creature I see before me.
A real queen of power and purpose... one that I knew... one that can remind Emma that the world needs a Savior.
Oh, I'm right.
Show her your inner darkness, and the Savior will be reborn!
A-About these bars? No?
Sorry. We're just old friends talking.
We haven't made a deal.
Oh, I'm well aware, old friend.
(Laughs) Um, but you... you... you may know a way to wake Emma up, but you don't know a way back to... what do you call it... uh, Storybrooke.
How do you know that name?
That matters not.
What does matter is...
♪ I can find you a magic bean ♪
That will cost you.
It smells just as dank outside.
I think I need some fresh air.
Uh, the bean.
Yes, yes, right, right.
Meet me tomorrow at noon down by the lake.
Tomorrow at noon it is.
(Laughs) I don't know what happened to you, but you don't exactly inspire fear anymore.
If you're going to play the part of Evil Queen, you should look like one, as well.
Much, much, much better!
Now go on!
Mr. Gold: Belle.
You're looking well... considering.
You sped up my pregnancy?
Yeah, well, the fairies sped up my recovery.
Which does not excuse any of this.
And please don't ask me because I will not be telling you where I've sent our son.
Belle, he's gone.
I used strands of our hair, our essence, to track him.
He's not here.
I also know that my words mean nothing to you now, so let's start with actions.
This is not about control.
This is about whether our son is safe.
Fine. Don't take my word for it.
I can't blame you.
Call the convent.
Yeah, hello, this is... this is Belle.
Is, uh... is Mother Superior there?
Everything is going to be fine.
We defeated the Evil Queen once. We'll do it again.
Let's just focus on Henry's big day.
I don't know what I'd do without you two.
Man: Presenting his Royal Highness, Prince Henry!
Look at him. He looks so grown-up.
Do you, Prince Henry, undertake to accept the accolade of knighthood?
And will you conduct yourself in all matters as befits a knight of this realm?
It is with pride in our hearts that we, Queen Snow and King David of the Enchanted Forest, do dub you...
(Doors open, crowd gasps)
Sorry I'm late.
It's the Queen! Run!
She's not the queen anymore!
Look at them, missing out on this... happy, happy day.
I vowed to destroy their happiness if it is the last thing I do.
Don't hurt my parents.
Oh, but you see, hurting them is the point... unless you know of some hero who can stop me.
Look for that hero...
Princess, and when you find one, you know where to find us.
(Crowd gasps, murmuring)
What do we do?
Don't worry, kid. I have this.
Hook: He said 10:00. Right?
Where is David, anyway?
He's late. It's not like him.
I thought I smelled earnestness.
Please pick it up.
You're the one who dropped it.
Because I'm starting to wonder if you still have it.
An assassin, Gold's magic, a genie?
Why don't you try doing something yourself for a change, you snake!
You do realize you can't kill me, you imbecilic shepherd.
Thanks for the tip.
I know I can't kill you.
But I can do something much worse.
David, are you my new master?
Yeah, Aladdin, I am.
Don't dabble with forces you don't understand.
Oh, I'm gonna be quite careful.
Your wish is my command, especially if it's gonna hurt her.
But remember, all wishes come with a price.
David: Oh, I know.
That's why I'm not gonna wish for anything to do with Emma or Snow or anyone I actually care about.
The only one that's gonna pay the price is her.
I wish... that the Evil Queen gets exactly... what she deserves.
Aladdin, what's going on?
I don't know. I granted your wish.
No, you didn't.
You wasted it.
All I ever wanted was to rip your family apart, and now look.
Your daughter's trapped in a wish.
And your wife is slumbering forever.
And you... you are all left alone.
Don't you get it?
You can't wish for me to get everything I deserve because I already have it.
I will destroy you!
Look at you.
I always knew darkness would be a lovely shade on you.
Aladdin? You're okay!
Hook: Let him go.
You're outnumbered, and we've got the lamp.
Death is too good for you.
I'd rather watch you suffer.
Whatever you're planning, it won't work.
We'll defeat you, Regina. We always...
Defeat me. I know. I know.
That's what I'm counting on.
Don't worry. She's not going to hurt you.
It's going to be okay.
I knew you'd find the hero in you.
Now, let's get this over with.
What is that?
Some kind of weapon?
The key to our kingdom, which is now yours, Your Majesty. We surrender.
Anything to protect my parents.
Emma, I don't want the key to your kingdom.
I just want you to remember who you are and get you back to Storybrooke.
Storybrooke? Like in my dream?
How do you know of my dreams?
Oh, come on, Emma.
This! This is the dream!
And now I have to wake you up.
I know you won't believe it, Emma, so, I really am sorry about this.
I-I already gave you the kingdom.
I gave you everything. What more can I do?
Be the Savior and stop me.
If not, your parents die!
I'm not a hero.
I... I'm not the S... (sniffles) the Savior.
Yes, you are.
I know you, Emma. You fight when it matters.
You always do.
Right now you need to fight!
Oh, come on, Ms. Swan!
I don't know how.
You don't want their blood on their hands, do you?
(Crying) No. No! No!
You really don't remember, do you?
You really couldn't fight me.
She may not have fought, but I will.
You murdered my grandparents, and for that, you will pay!
Oh, no, Henry, I...
It's okay, Mother.
I have this.
I won't hurt you, Henry.
But I will hurt you.
Emma: Henry, stop!
You saved me.
Yeah, well, you came to this crazy land to save me, so it's only fair, right?
Yeah. I remember.
When you couldn't hurt Henry, he was about to actually kill and become everything I never wanted him to be.
That's when I knew.
Oh, they're not real. I didn't actually kill anyone.
Yeah, I know.
You just needed to wake me.
Although that was... very dark.
Come on. Let's go stop the real Evil Queen.
This town is almost tolerable... when the peasantry is hidden away.
(Whispering) Call Charming.
We've been portaled!
Well, that was faster than I thought.
Who the hell are you?
Mother Superior was found in the forest.
What happened?! Is she gonna be okay?
Hello, tell us what happened to our son.
It was dark.
(Voice breaking) And I fought as hard as I could, but she took him.
Who? Who took him?
The Black Fairy.
Storybrooke felt like a dream.
Now this does.
I-I mean, a good dream.
The person I was here just wasn't me.
The fighting and the pain... it's... it's what makes me me.
I'm good with that.
Even if it means my end.
(Scoffs) 'Cause, you know, that other person kind of sucked.
And singing Princess Emma isn't my favorite model.
I didn't sing... that you saw.
Now let's go home.
Where is he?
Oh, I sort of made a deal with the Dark One and let him out of his cage for a ticket home.
What if he's, like, razing villages or something?
(Laughs impishly) Well, dearie, on behalf of all Rumplestiltskins everywhere, I'm here to make good on my word.
Sure you want to leave all this behind, Princess?
Where's that bean, Rumple?
Just throw it down and think about where you want to go.
Off to raze some fake villages.
(Sighs) You ready, Emma?
Let's go home.
David: What have I become?
I wanted to execute the Evil Queen back to the Enchanted Forest, but it was Snow who convinced me to show mercy.
What if I'm just like my brother?
You're not your brother, mate.
We all make mistakes. It doesn't change who we are.
Now go kiss your damn wife.
Perhaps... you could use a wish to break your curse with Snow?
But the way wishes have been going today, I think it just might make things worse.
No, the lamp is yours.
You're the genie's new master now.
I trust that you will be wise with this power.
And I understand the risks, but Aladdin and I... we have to try.
We have to find Agrabah.
Are you sure that's a good idea?
Whatever the price, I owe it to my people, and I'm willing to make the sacrifice.
We both are.
We'll miss you.
Don't. We'll be back.
And until then, give this to your mom for me.
From one Savior to another.
Do you trust me?
I wish for you to take us to Agrabah.
Rumple. The Black Fairy!
And need I remind you that you entrusted him to that gnat?
After what you did to me?!
Belle, I swear, I did not dose you with that magic.
What have we done to each other?
And what have we done to our son?
We have to work together before it's too late.
There are realms of dark magic beyond even my reach, where my mother would lurk in the shadow.
Where has she taken him?
I don't know.
But it's a place of immense dark power.
Time runs differently there.
Nothing makes sense.
Rumple, what could happen to our son?
Big trouble, team.
What the hell is that?
That... (Snake hisses) is the Evil Queen.
She got what she deserved.
Who put her in there?
A guy in a hood.
Emma's vision. Did you see him?
Did you see who was under that hood?
Man: Not another step, ladies.
It can't be.
This is a robbery.
Let's go! Off with the jewelry!
Remember what you said. He's not real.
He's not real!
We've got to go!
