The Groundsman leads the group to a bazar full of many different people. Mary Margaret observes that it's like "all the realms at once" and the Groundsman explains that it's a refuge for people from many realms, fleeing their problems. He tells the group that this realm has been called "The Land of Untold Stories".

In [[New York City]], [[Violet Morgan]] follows [[Henry Mills]] down a crowded street, reminding him that his [[Regina Mills|mother]] told them to wait in the library. Agitated, Henry reminds her that Emma and Regina could already be in trouble, and that she already ran away with him and "liked about the [[Holy Grail|Dark Grail]]. Violet takes his hand, telling him that she knows he's scared, and will help him. Henry thanks her. As they continue walking, Violet expresses her hope that Henry has a plan, as the pair do not have [[magic]] and they don't know where Henry's [[Mr. Gold|grandfather]] is. Henry stops, looking at a hotel in front of them with a storm cloud forming over it, saying "Actually, I think I do."

Henry stops, looking at a hotel in front of them with a storm cloud forming over it, saying "Actually, I think I do."
   
 
Inside the hotel, a room steward, bearing a cart, pauses in front of a room with glowing light emitting from the door. Apprehensively, he knocks on the door, and Mr. Gold opens it. Inside the room, the table, bearing the [[Olympian Crystal]] and three candles, in covered in inscriptions. The steward lifts the cover of the dinner tray, announcing the spaghetti Bolognese, yet revealing a steak with vegetables. He stammers out an apology, promising to fix the error right away. Mr. Gold tells him not to bother, that the meal is "irrelevant". He picks up the tray, dumping the plate of food onto the cart, asking if the steward if it is sterling silver. The steward assures him it is, and Mr. Gold tells him to leave. As the young man walks out, Mr. Gold stops him. He tips him with a one hundred dollar bill, saying "Things might get messy here." The steward leaves, and Mr. Gold closes the door, with the "Do not disturb" sign on the knob.

On the street outside, Emma and Regina look up at Mr. Gold's hotel. Regina remarks that Mr. Gold may have magic, but is not subtle. Emma observes that Henry has likely already disobeyed them, and takes out her cellphone, intending to call him and tell him to stay where he is. Regina reminds her that she "torched his phone." Looking at her phone, Emma tells Regina that [[Granny (Storybrooke)|Granny]] in [[Storybrooke]] has informed her that her parents, Hook and Zelena were pulled through a portal. Regina asks where they've gone, and Emma responds that all Granny knows is that the group vanished with the Sorcerer's Wand and never came back. Regina marches off toward the hotel. Emma hurries after her, exclaiming that their family members may be in danger, and they need to help them get home safely. Regina retorts that the only way to do that is to get back their magic from Gold. Emma stops her just outside the building's entrance, telling that they need a plan. Regina implies that she means to physically attack gold, and Emma shoots back that she wants to help her family too, but the pair need to be smart.

Later, inside the hotel, Regina knocks on Mr. Gold's door. She tells him they need to talk, alone, and that "the Savior" doesn't know she's there. Allowing her in, Mr. Gold asks her why he would want to talk to her. Regina tells him that the storm clouds outside lead her to believe he has been unable to wake [[Belle French|Belle]], and, looking at the writing-covered table, guesses that it's "not for a lack of trying". She offers her help, calling herself his best student. With disdain, Mr. Gold tells her that his best student was a [[Evil Queen|Queen]], and that Regina has "buried under layers of tasteful cotton and good intentions." Regina tells him that she's ready to let "her" back out, that she is sick of losing the people she cares about. Mr. Gold asks her what's changed, and Regina tells him that Zelena is in trouble, because "the 'Heroes' convinced her to use the Sorcerer's Wand and they're trapped in another realm. Mr. Gold asks her why he would help Zelena, and Regina responds that he needs the help of the Evil Queen. She tells him that she doesn't want to lose anyone else she loves after [[Last Rites|what happened]] to [[Robin Hood]]. Mr. Gold accepts her help.

In the Land of Untold Stories, the Groundsman takes the group to the apartment he lived in when he was a doctor at the hospital. He picks up a vial of [[Dr. Jekyll's Serum|blue liquid]], explaining that it's a serum he created to "separate the good from the evil in someone", and that's it what he intends to use to defeat the Warden. Hook observes that there doesn't seem to be any good in the Warden, and the Groundsman assures him that it's there, and that the good has been fighting to get out for a long time. He takes a flower out of his pocket, which David observes as being from his garden. The Groundsman cuts the stem, and adds liquid from it to his serum. As he swirls it, the blue liquid becomes red, and he observes that "he" didn't know it was being grown right under his nose. The Orderly bursts in, exclaiming that he did know. The Groundsman exclaims that he was passed out drunk, and the Orderly informs him that he allowed him to get away to finish the serum. He grabs the Groundsman, and, saying it's time to show the Warden what he's done, forces him to drink some blue liquid. The Groundsman tells the group to run as he transforms in the Warden. David and Mary Margaret realize what [[Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde|story]] the doctor is from, realizing that the Groundsman is Dr. Jekyll and the Warden is Mr. Hyde. Not understanding, Hook asks who Mr. Hyde is, and Zelena launches a fireball at him, which Mr. Hyde absorbs. The group runs. The Orderly begins to go after him, but Mr. Hyde stops him, gazing at the vial of red serum.

In the hotel in New York City, Emma breaks into Mr. Gold's room using a keycard and her cellphone. She sneaks into the room as Regina and Mr. Gold share a drink. Regina asks Mr. Gold where Belle is, and he explains that his wife, inside [[Pandora's Box]], was [[Only You|taken]]. When Regina asks how, Mr. Gold explains his theory that the Sorcerer's Wand was taken from Zelena and used to take Pandora's Box, which means that both are in the same realm. He tells Regina that she is going to help him find it just as Emma removes the Olympian Crystal from his jacket. It disappears from her hand and into Mr. Gold's, and he tells her to help herself to a drink. Regina laments that he knew, and Mr. Gold replies that he did, that Regina has changed and the loss of "one man" is not going to make her evil again. He calls her guilt-ridden and weak, and tells her that he only let her in to acquire a bit of her hair, which Regina realizes is connected to Zelena, and will assist him in finding his wife. He tells the women he has no use for either of them, and brandishes a fireball as Henry and Violet enter the room, telling him to stop. Regina tells them to leave, saying there is nothing Henry can do. Henry tells her there is, and reveals the Dark Grail, using it to suck up Mr. Gold's fireball. He points it at the Olympian Crystal and the Grail starts sucking it in. The clouds over the hotel dissipate, the magic is sucked from the Crystal, and a shockwave knocks everyone in the room backward. Emma asks what he's done, and Henry replies that he has destroyed magic.{{EndRecap}}

This article focuses on the Season Five episode.
For the Facebook app with a similar name, see Once Upon a Time: The Untold Stories.
Dr. Jekyll: That's why this place has come to be known as the Land of Untold Stories.
Hook: It's a tad ironic of a name, no? Given that this land is seemingly filled with stories.

"An Untold Story" is the twenty-third and final episode of Season Five of ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, and directed by Dean White. It is the one hundred and eleventh episode of the series overall, and premiered on May 15, 2016.

This episode is the second part of the season five finale, and premiered immediately following "Only You".

Synopsis

With the possibility of magic being destroyed and the fate of Storybrooke hanging in the balance, it's a race for Emma and Regina to track down Henry before Gold can find him first. Regina continues to struggle with her frustrations over her former evil-self and, elsewhere, Snow, David, Hook and Zelena are imprisoned and must contend with two very disturbed individuals that may give Gold a run for his money.[2]

Recap

This section is a detailed recap of this episode. There are major spoilers. Click to expand.

In present-day Land of Untold Stories, the Groundsman awakens in a straightjacket. he notices a note on the table in front of him that reads, "You almost got free. Sorry it didn't work out. -H" As he stands, the Orderly, slumped over in a nearby chair, drops a flask. He speaks to Hyde in his reflection in a knife, telling him he's not as clever as he thinks.

In their cell, Zelena mocks Hook as he attempts to unlock their cage. David Nolan tells them to stop arguing, reminding them that the Groundsman promised to bring the wand back to them. The Groundsman approaches the cage, lamenting that he was only able to keep half his promise. He explains that he repaired the wand, but the Warden took it from him. He reveals the key to their cell and unlocks it. Mary Margaret asks if he knows where the Warden is. The Groundsman explains that he doesn't, but before the group finds him, they "must have a way to defeat him." He tells the group he may have a way, but it might be dangerous. Hook tells him that he's just been "to Hell and back, and that he's not afraid.

The Groundsman leads the group to a bazar full of many different people. Mary Margaret observes that it's like "all the realms at once" and the Groundsman explains that it's a refuge for people from many realms, fleeing their problems. He tells the group that this realm has been called "The Land of Untold Stories".

In New York City, Violet follows Henry Mills down a crowded street, reminding him that his mother told them to wait in the library. Agitated, Henry reminds her that Emma and Regina could already be in trouble, and that she already ran away with him and "liked about the Dark Grail. Violet takes his hand, telling him that she knows he's scared, and will help him. Henry thanks her. As they continue walking, Violet expresses her hope that Henry has a plan, as the pair do not have magic and they don't know where Henry's grandfather is. Henry stops, looking at a hotel in front of them with a storm cloud forming over it, saying "Actually, I think I do."

Inside the hotel, a room steward, bearing a cart, pauses in front of a room with glowing light emitting from the door. Apprehensively, he knocks on the door, and Mr. Gold opens it. Inside the room, the table, bearing the Olympian Crystal and three candles, in covered in inscriptions. The steward lifts the cover of the dinner tray, announcing the spaghetti Bolognese, yet revealing a steak with vegetables. He stammers out an apology, promising to fix the error right away. Mr. Gold tells him not to bother, that the meal is "irrelevant". He picks up the tray, dumping the plate of food onto the cart, asking if the steward if it is sterling silver. The steward assures him it is, and Mr. Gold tells him to leave. As the young man walks out, Mr. Gold stops him. He tips him with a one hundred dollar bill, saying "Things might get messy here." The steward leaves, and Mr. Gold closes the door, with the "Do not disturb" sign on the knob.

On the street outside, Emma and Regina look up at Mr. Gold's hotel. Regina remarks that Mr. Gold may have magic, but is not subtle. Emma observes that Henry has likely already disobeyed them, and takes out her cellphone, intending to call him and tell him to stay where he is. Regina reminds her that she "torched his phone." Looking at her phone, Emma tells Regina that Granny in Storybrooke has informed her that her parents, Hook and Zelena were pulled through a portal. Regina asks where they've gone, and Emma responds that all Granny knows is that the group vanished with the Sorcerer's Wand and never came back. Regina marches off toward the hotel. Emma hurries after her, exclaiming that their family members may be in danger, and they need to help them get home safely. Regina retorts that the only way to do that is to get back their magic from Gold. Emma stops her just outside the building's entrance, telling that they need a plan. Regina implies that she means to physically attack gold, and Emma shoots back that she wants to help her family too, but the pair need to be smart.

Later, inside the hotel, Regina knocks on Mr. Gold's door. She tells him they need to talk, alone, and that "the Savior" doesn't know she's there. Allowing her in, Mr. Gold asks her why he would want to talk to her. Regina tells him that the storm clouds outside lead her to believe he has been unable to wake Belle, and, looking at the writing-covered table, guesses that it's "not for a lack of trying". She offers her help, calling herself his best student. With disdain, Mr. Gold tells her that his best student was a Queen, and that Regina has "buried under layers of tasteful cotton and good intentions." Regina tells him that she's ready to let "her" back out, that she is sick of losing the people she cares about. Mr. Gold asks her what's changed, and Regina tells him that Zelena is in trouble, because "the 'Heroes' convinced her to use the Sorcerer's Wand and they're trapped in another realm. Mr. Gold asks her why he would help Zelena, and Regina responds that he needs the help of the Evil Queen. She tells him that she doesn't want to lose anyone else she loves after what happened to Robin Hood. Mr. Gold accepts her help.

In the Land of Untold Stories, the Groundsman takes the group to the apartment he lived in when he was a doctor at the hospital. He picks up a vial of blue liquid, explaining that it's a serum he created to "separate the good from the evil in someone", and that's it what he intends to use to defeat the Warden. Hook observes that there doesn't seem to be any good in the Warden, and the Groundsman assures him that it's there, and that the good has been fighting to get out for a long time. He takes a flower out of his pocket, which David observes as being from his garden. The Groundsman cuts the stem, and adds liquid from it to his serum. As he swirls it, the blue liquid becomes red, and he observes that "he" didn't know it was being grown right under his nose. The Orderly bursts in, exclaiming that he did know. The Groundsman exclaims that he was passed out drunk, and the Orderly informs him that he allowed him to get away to finish the serum. He grabs the Groundsman, and, saying it's time to show the Warden what he's done, forces him to drink some blue liquid. The Groundsman tells the group to run as he transforms in the Warden. David and Mary Margaret realize what story the doctor is from, realizing that the Groundsman is Dr. Jekyll and the Warden is Mr. Hyde. Not understanding, Hook asks who Mr. Hyde is, and Zelena launches a fireball at him, which Mr. Hyde absorbs. The group runs. The Orderly begins to go after him, but Mr. Hyde stops him, gazing at the vial of red serum.

In the hotel in New York City, Emma breaks into Mr. Gold's room using a keycard and her cellphone. She sneaks into the room as Regina and Mr. Gold share a drink. Regina asks Mr. Gold where Belle is, and he explains that his wife, inside Pandora's Box, was taken. When Regina asks how, Mr. Gold explains his theory that the Sorcerer's Wand was taken from Zelena and used to take Pandora's Box, which means that both are in the same realm. He tells Regina that she is going to help him find it just as Emma removes the Olympian Crystal from his jacket. It disappears from her hand and into Mr. Gold's, and he tells her to help herself to a drink. Regina laments that he knew, and Mr. Gold replies that he did, that Regina has changed and the loss of "one man" is not going to make her evil again. He calls her guilt-ridden and weak, and tells her that he only let her in to acquire a bit of her hair, which Regina realizes is connected to Zelena, and will assist him in finding his wife. He tells the women he has no use for either of them, and brandishes a fireball as Henry and Violet enter the room, telling him to stop. Regina tells them to leave, saying there is nothing Henry can do. Henry tells her there is, and reveals the Dark Grail, using it to suck up Mr. Gold's fireball. He points it at the Olympian Crystal and the Grail starts sucking it in. The clouds over the hotel dissipate, the magic is sucked from the Crystal, and a shockwave knocks everyone in the room backward. Emma asks what he's done, and Henry replies that he has destroyed magic.
