01x06 - Beautiful Wickedness

Previously, on "Emerald City"...

I haven't seen our eastern sister in years.

If secrets were kept, they were kept from me too.

What kind of magic is this?

Magic strong enough to kill a witch.

[gunshot]

What is it?

A bullet more powerful than magic.

Sylvie, did you do this?

Can I count on you to build my arsenal?

How long have you been ruling in his stead?

When The Beast Forever came, you left my kingdom to drown.

I want to see Emerald City laid to waste.

Your men were right about me. I killed 'em.

All of them.

Do you know my mother?

Dorothy? You've come home.

Here. In Oz.

I would never hurt you.

You've been trying to kill me since I got here.

Yes, but how could I know it was you?

That you were no threat?

And what makes you think I'm not?

Is that why you're here? To kill me?

To take me back home?

Your mother wouldn't approve.

I loved your mother very much.

You loved her?

And she... loved me.

For what purpose did you butcher my men?

Where did the tunnel in Nimbo lead?

I've told you.

The memory of it is lost to me.

And you think torture will see it returned?

I believe this is what I deserve.

I, too, did terrible things when I was a young man.

A different man.

But I wasn't tortured for my sins.

I was rewarded for them.

No.

One bullet, then.

A bullet?

One.

It's how I'll earn your trust.

Eh.

Stay back, she's no threat!

I have a hole in my shoulder that speaks otherwise.

She's my guest.

I've extended my friendship to her.

Please reconsider.

When I came upon her and the soldier from Nimbo, they seemed very close.

Lucas.

Where is he?

Still think she poses no threat?

Lucas is the one who was hurt by your men and he lost his memory because of it.

So where is he?

She's wrong.

Anna just confirmed it.

His memory's intact.

But it is protected by magic.

You want to earn my trust?

You need to let me see him.

Dorothy.

Dorothy.

Are you okay?

[groans]

I thought I'd never see you again.

Listen to me.

I need you to lie to The Wizard.

I need you to tell him you remember something... anything.

If not, they're going to kill you.

No, Dorothy...

I need to know the truth.

They can break the magic that keeps me from knowing myself.

But we're running out of time.

The two moons grow closer and...

Dorothy is not the problem.

The soldier with the magic upon his head is a problem.

Ev not building our weapons is a problem.

You want to be of service to me, then you'll solve one of my real problems.

I was hoping that we'd have a moment alone.

I want you to take over for Elizabeth as head of the High Council.

Dorothy's reunion with the soldier.

Where were these 20 years ago when the Beast rained down on my kingdom?

When they could have saved my mother from being swallowed alive?

Bullets and guns are no match for a beast made of water.

The beast that's upon us now is made of flesh and blood.

A bullet is the fastest way to stop a beating heart.

Because you are more valuable as my ally.

Perhaps the same is true for Dorothy.

The Mother Witch lives!

And is breeding witches.

For Glinda!

She hid my own mother from me.

Mother South is dead.

No.

She is alive.

I saw young witches.

Only she can make them.

And the spell that held the secret was Glinda's.

But Glinda, she watched the last of the witches get slaughtered by The Beast.

What good would new ones be?

Sober up, you fool!

She's not going to use them against the beast.

She's going to use them against you.

What did you think Glinda would do?

You imprisoned every witch who practiced magic and repressed the ones who didn't.

And now they're going to take Emerald City from you!

They are going to take Oz from you with the very elements you outlawed!

And whose side will you be on?

Oh, you'll be the first to know.

Enough!

You put spies under my roof.

Why?

The High Council.

Anna.

Taking their skulls to Nimbo.

You don't think me a monster?

After what you saw?

No.

You were protecting those girls.

And you risked your life for them.

Why?

You are sworn to her, as am I.

He works for Glinda?

You know me?

There is a wagon in the load-out that'll take you north to Calcedon, Glinda's castle... she's ordered me to free you.

There's, um... there's one of the witch girls in the city.
