1x13 - And They Lived...

Post by bunniefuu »

Previously in Wonderland...

This water is not meant for you.

Return the water... or pay the price.

That's it, maman.

That's it.

I'm sorry, maman. Forgive me.

To defeat Jafar...

Both: ...we need to return the stolen water to the Well of Wonders.

If my mother's in there, the water rests with her.

What if I told you there was a way to bring back Anastasia?

Cyrus says you hold great importance to Jafar and if I freed you... you'd help us.

Your son is dying, Amara.

And the only way you'll be able to save him is to complete the spell and change the rules of magic.

[ Energy crackling ]

[ Sighs ]

It is done.


Please, can you help him?

Oh, my son.

Of course she can.

Amara and I are now the two most powerful sorcerers in the world.

There's just one problem.

I've never been good at sharing.

Old prisoner: Jafar, stop!

[ Glass shatters ]

There has already been enough death.

Let's go.

The way to show true power Now, go. is with mercy.

Like the mercy you showed the boy who came to you looking for his father's love?

Love was not something that I could just give to you, Jafar.

You had to earn it.

I think I've grown tired of this argument, father.

Lucky for me, I won't be having it ever again.

I'm no longer bound by the laws of magic.

I can have whatever I want.

And what is that?

The same thing I've been wanting since I was 10 years old.

Haven't you learned? I'm never going...

[ Whoosh ]


[ Chuckles ]

My son.

I'm so proud of you.

You're everything a father could ask for.

My life was empty until you arrived.

[ Chuckles ]

I love you.


[ Voice breaking ]

While I am pleased to feel this affection, father, it's not quite all that I've wanted from you.

Tell me what you desire.

I shall provide it for you.

W... what I want... [ Normal voice ] what I truly want... Is for you to know how it feels to be m*rder by someone you love.

[ Whoosh ]

[ Gurgling ]

[ Gagging ]


[ Gagging ]


Well... now, where was I?

Where are they?

[ Breathing heavily ]

Jafar will be after us.

We still have a long way to go.

We can't possibly carry him there.

We're not.

[ Whoosh ]

We're going to fly him there.

Hold on tight.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland 1x13

And They Lived...

Original air date April 3, 2014



I know you're in here.

I want you to tell me... what am I afraid of now?

[ Indistinct whispering ]

You're afraid of nothing.

And that is what ultimate power is.

[ Screams ]

[ Grunts ]

And what about you, Jafar?

What will you do with all your power?

Isn't it obvious?

Anything I want.

[ Smooches ]

[ bl*ws ]

Mrs. Rabbit: What do you need?

I've got willow root, hot towels.

I use the sap to close up the wound...

I don't need anything.

Look, lady, I've been doing this a long time.

My mom taught me. Her mom taught her.


[ Whoosh ]

[ Gasps ]


Well, if you're gonna do it that way...

[ Inhales deeply ]

[ Sighs ]

It just occurs to me that I haven't properly introduced myself.

[ Chuckles ]

I'm Alice.

Amara. I'm Cyrus' mother.

I know who you are.

Uh, don't mind me.

I'm just the owner of the house where now both of you have been saved.

This is great.

Now we have matching blood stains on the carpet.

Oh, Percy, calm down.

Seriously, who needs a photo album when you've got this?

"Look, kids, here's where Alice almost d*ed. And, ooh, look! Here's where Cyrus' spleen fell out."

Percy! Just take it down!

I've been meaning to thank you...

...for everything you've done for Cyrus.

Oh, I didn't do anything. Amara: - Nonsense.

I saw the bravery you showed... and the pain on my son's face when he thought he'd never see you again.

He's lucky to have found you.

We're lucky we found each other.

Well, I hope you saved a little of that luck for what comes next.

What's that?

We take down Jafar.

Once and for all.

Uh, when you say "we," do you mean...

It's going to take all of us.


[ Sighs ]

What the bloody hell do you want?

I'm going to guess you don't have a very high opinion of me.

It'd be hard to have a lower one. Aah!

Then you might be surprised to know that I've had a change of heart.

So, despite the fact you didn't return my staff as we agreed...

...I'm still going to hold up my end of the bargain.

I've changed the second law of magic for you, Will Scarlet.

And I have brought a very special someone back from the d*ad.

[ Whoosh ]

Hello, Will.

Ana? Is it really you?


It is.

I never thought I'd see you again.

Jafar, I don't know why you did this, but thank you.

It's not necessary.

It is.

Really... it's not.

Maybe it's time we tell him, Ana.

Tell me what?

I said I'd bring her back.

I never said everything would be the same.

I love another, Will.

What? Who?

Who do you think?


[ Grunts ]

So, that's what this is all about?

You changed the laws of magic so that you could torment me?


But it is a happy consequence.

What I have in mind is far greater.

And you needed her help to do it?

Not just hers.

[ Whoosh ]

[ Thunder rumbling ]

Amara: Will you slow down and tell me where we're going?

Alice: To the palace.

With your magic, we can confront Jafar head-on, fight f*re with f*re.

All that does is ensure everyone gets b*rned.

You and Cyrus were right before.

The only way to defeat him is to return the stolen water to the Well of Wonders.

It will break the genie's curse and Jafar will lose his magic.

And so will you.

It's the only way.

But the Red Queen, if you want to save her...

We can't, I'm afraid.

But we made a promise to Will.

The laws of magic are in place for a reason.

So we're just going to give up on her?

Would you rather give up on Will?

We can try and save the Queen, but we will risk losing Will forever.

Are you prepared to do that?

[ Sighs ]


No, I'm not.

[ Sighs ]

Okay, then.

Cyrus, you take Amara to the well.

You're not coming with us?

We have to split up.

This may disarm Jafar, but it won't defeat him.

I'll take the Rabbit, and I'll gather as many soldiers as I can.

The sun will be our cue.

The moment it awakens the sky, you return the water to the well.

Then we'll storm the castle, take down Jafar, rescue the Knave and your brothers.

Then we'll find each other.


[ Sighs ]

Now go.

Hey. This isn't goodbye.

You see this ring?

It's a promise.

And I always make good on my promises.

[ Sighs ]

My friends!

Welcome back to the land of the living!

I am Jafar.

It is me you must thank!

It is me who you now owe a debt!

But worry not.

You won't be in debt for long, because the time has come to pay up.

Why have I bestowed this gift of new life upon you?

Because this world, whose air you now breathe once again, is in danger!

And we must preserve it and, along with it, your lives.

The task before you is dangerous but simple.

Locate the sorceress Amara wherever she hides.

She is all that stands between you and continued life.

But be warned.

She has allies.

If you come across any of them, bring them to me, and all scores will be settled.

But know this!

If anything or anyone gets in your way, the solution is the same.

Whatever the obstacle, break it, burn it, k*ll it!

Bring Wonderland to its knees!

[ Soldiers cheering ]

Uh, the men are nervous.

And the rabbits?

Wishing they made armor in my size.

How about you scout the path ahead and I'll speak to the men?

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Everyone, please, listen to me.

Jafar's palace lies just beyond these trees.

What comes next is difficult.

I won't lie to you. It will be dangerous.

Anyone who's afraid has every right to leave now, and I encourage you to do so, because what's at stake is too important to leave in the hands of those who are unsure.

You must be resolute.

You must be brave. You must be strong.

For tonight, we don't just fight for ourselves.

We fight for the ones that are waiting for us to come home when it's all over.

[ All murmuring ]

We fight for the ones that we love. Man: - Yes!

We fight for our home. We fight for Wonderland.

[ All cheering ]

We strike at sunrise.

[ Cheering in distance ]

She's quite brave, your Alice.

For leading that army?

For talking back to her future mother-in-law.

She speaks her mind.

I gather.

And approve.


There are doors. We're close.

Come on.

[ Branch snaps ]



[ Grunts ]

[ Gasps ]


Stay back!

This is your last chance.

We warned them.

[ Whoosh ]

[ Soldiers groan ]


She doesn't know magic. She won't stand a chance.

We must hurry.

[ Woman screaming in distance ]


[ Grunting ]


[ Grunts ]

[ Grunts ]

She always has had spirit.


[ Gasps ]

Anastasia, you're alive.

And keen powers of observation.

What's going on?

Will: Oh, Alice.

Jafar brought her back.

She's under the impression that they're in love.

Now, Alice, if you don't mind... can you please tell us where to find Amara?

You expect me to help you?

[ Chuckles ]

Tell me, Alice.

Do you know what the laws of magic are?

The things that can never be done?

You can't bring back the d*ad.


You can't make someone fall in love.


And the third?

You can't change the past.

Well, until now.

That's right.

I can reach back into what should be immovable, beautiful memories and... twist them.

Let's see.

What shall I change?

What means the most to you?

That's right, Alice.

I'm gonna see to it that you never met Cyrus.

Which means you'll never have come to Wonderland.

You'll never have met your true love.

You'll be back in that awful place... England.

[ Sobs ]

You'll be back to being an ignored, unloved, and lonely little girl.



[ Sighs ]

What this trinket symbolizes... will never have come to pass.

You've already experienced what it's like to have loved and lost.

Prepare yourself for a new heartbreak.

The worst kind... to have never loved at all.

[ Ring clinking ]

It doesn't have to be this way.

Amara is the one I want.

All you have to do is tell me where she is, and everything you and Cyrus have fought for lives on.

But make me wait any longer... and it will all... vanish.
It's over, Alice. Tell him.

Save yourself.

You should listen to your friend.

There's no sense in fighting a battle you can't win.

All you can do now is to keep from losing the one person who matters the most to you.

Go ahead.

Change the past.

After all this, I would have thought your love meant more to you than that.

Our love means everything to me.

Then perhaps you're underestimating my power.

No. You're underestimating mine.

The love that Cyrus and I have is more powerful than any magic.

No matter what you do to me, you can't change the fact that you will never feel true love for yourself.

And her?

What would you call that?

An illusion.

A lie.

Just like your father's love.

And your army.

All you have are parlor tricks, spells that will never match up to the real thing.


Go ahead. Do it.

All the magic in the world can never make you feel what I have felt.

Real love... true love, cannot be destroyed.

That is why you, Jafar, will never win.

[ Footsteps approach ]

Guard: Excuse me.

A soldier, sire, with news of Amara.

She entered a pair of red doors an hour's ride due East of here.

I see. Was she alone?


A young man was with her.

Then why didn't you bring him here as I asked?

T... the sorceress, she made every...

[ Whoosh ]

It is so hard to resurrect good help these days.

[ Sighs ]

Now, before I do something infinitely more painful to you... tell me of these two red doors.

Where is Amara headed?

In that case...

Come here, my darling.

Alice... thinks your love is an illusion, a lie.


I couldn't agree more.

Now, show them what true love and devotion really mean and tell me where these red doors lead.

No, please! He'll k*ll them.

Don't tell him, Ana.

To the Well of Wonders.

[ Sighs ]

It's a great source of magic, my love.


East. Just past the Rambling Woods.

See you soon.

This is it.

Let's hope this works.


I have to summon the Nyx.

There's no need. She knows I'm here.

[ Wind gusting ]

[ Rumbling ]

What if they don't make it?

They will.

What if they don't?

Darlings, I'd give it up.

Your Cyrus is likely already d*ad.

I don't think I was talking to you.

Then it's best you don't talk at all.

[ Page turns ]

Your Majesty!

Can I just ask you a question?


What do you want?

What say you fetch me a jug of water?

Or wine... wine will do.


I have no intention of fetching you anything.

Stay away from her!

She's a prisoner of the one I love!

Ana, I know what you feel for Jafar seems real to you.

It is real!

It's a trick.

[ Sighs ]

A one-sided mind game.

You had real love once, and you know it's not that simple.

It can be.

No, it's messy.

It means arguing and making up and laughing and... and crying and struggling.

And sometimes, it doesn't seem worth it.

But it is.

And, at the end, when you're in love, no matter what happens, you forgive each other.

I forgive you, Ana, for what you did to me.

Because I love you.

And if there's any part of you that has a shred of love left for me, then please help us.

Really lovely words.

But that's all they are.

I know what I feel.

What you feel is a curse!

Jafar did this to you.

If what I feel isn't love...

...then what is?


If you want to stop Jafar...

...then you've got to hurry up.

[ Grunts ]

[ Laughs ]

Hey, Alice.

She's back.

I surrender myself.

I surrender the water to restore balance and free my sons.

Then step forward.

Wait. I can't.

Please let me go.

[ Gasping ]


[ Grunts ]

That's far enough!

Amara was right.

The only way this ends is when one of us dies.

This is not the end... not yet.

She made her bed, and now it appears she d*ed in it.

It's over, Cyrus.

I know about the well.

I know the power it contains.

What did you think you could accomplish by coming here?

Very well.

Since you won't tell me what I want to know, there's really no point in keeping you alive.

[ Rumbling ]

[ Breathing heavily ]


[ Energy crackles ]

[ Gasps ]

If you came here to defeat me...

...you should have brought more than a sword and a rabbit!

[ Gasps ]

[ Thunder rumbles ]

It's not me who's going to defeat you.

Cyrus, the water. Do it now!

Nyx, I return this water to you.

That's interesting.

Let me guess... this water goes in the well, and the genie's curse is broken.

Is that how she thought this would go?

I thought so.

Pity she's not around to see her best-laid plan unravel so dramatically.

So, now that I've stolen your water, what is it you plan to do?



That's right, Jafar.

I plan to do nothing.

I told you it wasn't me who is going to defeat you.

Because you didn't steal that water from me.

You stole it from her.

This water was not yours to take.

[ Thunder rumbling ]

You've let your desires override the fates.

[ Thunder crashing ]

Now your fate will be to serve the desires of others.

[ Screams ]

No! No! No!!


[ Wind gusting ]

[ Crickets chirping ]

[ Rumbling ]

Rafi: We're free.

[ Both laugh ]

Brother, we're free!

The curse is broken.

[ Both laugh ]

Everything Jafar did has been undone.

Who are you?


Uh, wh... uh, what happened?

We did it.

It's over.

[ Both laugh ]

Brothers! Taj: - Cyrus!

[ Laughter ]


Where is mother?

Is she...?

She's gone.

She gave her life for ours so that we might grow old together and build the family she always dreamed of.

So, all of this was for nothing.

No, brother.

It was for everything.


In the end, she did the right thing, you know?

Of course she did.

'Cause she loved you.

I can't believe I've got to go through the pain of losing her all over again.

It wasn't her time.

I know.

I just wish we could have...

No, Will.

It wasn't her time.

It's from the Well of Wonders.

Cyrus, I appreciate it.

But as much as I want her back, we can't risk...

It's not stolen... given from the guardian of the well.

She said that the Red Queen was meant to move on, but Anastasia... her path was meant to continue.

[ Gasps ]

[ Gasping ]

Morning, sleeping beauty.

What happened?

Ah... it's a bit of a long story.

Pretty sure I have the time to listen.

[ Birds chirping ]

I think I'm ready.

If you are.

For what?

To leave Wonderland.

Start a new adventure.

Yeah, I believe I am.

Where to?

Mr. Rabbit: I was wondering the same thing.

Perfect timing, Rabbit.

Well, perfect timing is my specialty.

Let's go home.

[ Door opens ]

[ Sighs ]

You look beautiful.

[ Sighs ]

Is it time?


But first, there's something I want to say.

Alice, I couldn't be more pleased to have you back home.

And I'm proud and happy to welcome Cyrus into our family.

[ Sighs ]

When I returned from our time together, I thought it must have been a dream.

But I want to thank you for proving to me that it was real.



[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Clears throat ]

The bride.

I believe this is the part where I'm supposed to say something about for better or worse, in sickness and in health, but you've already been all those things, and you survived.

Not even death could do you part.

That's actually true for most of you here, isn't it?

So, I guess that all that's left to say is what everyone here already knows.

Cyrus and Alice, you two are now one.

May you live happily ever after.

You may kiss the bride.

So, back to Wonderland, then.


Got a lot of fixing up to do.

You'll come visit?

Of course.



[ Chuckles ]

You're both welcome here anytime.

[ Smooches, chuckles ]

All right. Last train to Wonderland!

My paws are getting tired.

Mrs. Rabbit: Percy, you are such a party pooper.

[ Laughter ]

I want to thank you, Rabbit, for your help, but mostly... for bringing me to Wonderland in the first place.

Many people have come and gone from Wonderland, but only the most special ones ever discover what it's truly about.

Finding love?

Finding yourself.

Take care, Alice.

So... this is goodbye, then.

How about "see you soon"?

I'll see you later.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Laughs ]

Will, wait.

[ Sighs ]

I just want to thank you for everything.

Hold on to your heart this time, all right?

You hold on to yours.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Whoosh ]

[ Sighs ]

"And the White Queen and the White King loved each other very much. And, together, with their rabbit friends, they filled the land with wonder once again."

[ Sighs ]

What are you going to call it, mommy?

I don't know.

I was hoping you'd help me choose.

I think you should call it...

"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."

That's a splendid idea.

Is it true? The story?

Every last word.

But the things that happened, they're impossible.

Anything's possible in Wonderland.


Thank you.
