As wretched as it is, I need my pain. It makes me who I am. It makes me Grumpy.

—Grumpy to Snow White about love src

Grumpy, formerly known as Dreamy, currently known as Leroy, is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts in the first episode of the first season. He is portrayed by guest star Lee Arenberg and is the main reality version of Grumpy (Wish Realm).

Grumpy is based on one of the Seven Dwarves from the fairytale, "Snow White", and the character of the same name from the Disney film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.


Before First Curse

In the mines, eight dwarf eggs near their hatching hour. From high above the clouds, a fairy named Nova accidentally spills some precious fairy dust, which ends up being absorbed by one of the dwarf eggs. This particular dwarf dreams of Nova, and hatches earlier than his seven other brothers. He is instructed by the head dwarf, Bossy, his purpose in the mines. The dwarf inquiries about the beautiful woman he saw in his dream, but Bossy huffs that there is no such thing as female dwarves. Once all eight dwarves are cleaned up, they are handed their own special pickax, which materializes with each of their own personal names. The dwarf who hatched early receives the name Dreamy. Afterwards, they all head into the mines to start their jobs of mining for diamonds and crushing them into fairy dust for the fairies. A year later, Dreamy has become accustomed to daily work in the mines. He saves Nova from trouble by helping her turn off the fairy dust machine when the switch jams. In relief, Nova thanks him, while Dreamy is agape as he recognizes her as the same woman in his dream. They chat for a bit, but trouble brews when Nova sets down her bag and it gets scooped up into the assembly line headed for the furnace. After a few paralyzing seconds, Dreamy climbs up; managing to grab the bag before it is incinerated. Nova is deeply grateful for his help while disappointed in her own clumsiness as she wishes to become a fairy godmother. Dreamy thinks she will make a great one, which makes her smile. She introduces herself to him and casually invites him to Firefly Hill to see the fireflies with her at night, but he fails to get the subtle hint, and she leaves, disheartened.

That night, Dreamy, in a distracted mood, is out at the tavern with his brothers, but can't shake how strange he feels. Bossy insists that dwarves don't get ill, but a human woman named Belle can tell he is lovesick. Dreamy questions her about love and mentions Nova's stop at Firefly Hill. Belle laughs at his naivety and points out Nova obviously invited him to go there with her. Excitedly, Dreamy hurries off. At the top of Firefly Hill, he finds Nova waiting for him. While there, the two bond over their similarities while quickly falling in love and make plans to travel the world together on a boat. ("Dreamy")

Soon after, he meets up with Belle again at the tavern to notify her of his plans to run away with Nova. Nearby, a discussion goes on between some men about a quest to slay a Yaoguai in a far off land. Dreamy thinks it'd be a good Dreamy thinks it's the perfect opportunity for Belle to have a real adventure. Belle is more unsure since the only adventures she has experienced are the ones in books, which all have happy endings. With his encouragement, she decides to go. As a parting gift, Dreamy gives her a pouch of fairy dust. ("The Outsider")

The next night, Dreamy packs his bag to leave with Nova when Stealthy, one of his brothers, stops him. One by one, all of his other brothers wake up and ask him where he is going. Dreamy explains his love for Nova and the plans they've made together, and all his brothers, except Stealthy, wish him luck. Halfway to Firefly Hill, Dreamy is stopped by the Blue Fairy and Bossy. They point out dwarves cannot fall in love, and furthermore, Nova's deepest wish is to become a fairy godmother, which can't happen if the two of them leave. The Blue Fairy says the two of them would accomplish great things alone, but they would make a disastrous couple. They give him a choice: ruin both of their lives, or make Nova happy. Resignedly, Dreamy approaches an expectant Nova at Firefly Hill. Excitedly, she conjures a spyglass to allow him to see a docked ship they will be using for their travels. He breaks the change of plans to her; citing that they do not belong together and should stick to their own kind. He doesn't understand what makes the both of them so special, to which she says it's their love for each other that does. Still, Dreamy says their dream should be put aside. Becoming desperate, Nova professes her love for him, but Dreamy tearfully says he can't love. Pained, he walks away and returns to the mines. Unhappily, Dreamy asks for his ax, which completely breaks as he furiously attempts to chip jewels out of a rock. Bossy supplies him with a new ax, which gives Dreamy the new name Grumpy. ("Dreamy")

Despite having a new resolve to remain as a hardworking dwarf in the mines, Grumpy's feelings for Nova do not change. He strives to win her back; going to the lengths of working in the diamond mines and trading his wages to the foreman in exchange for a diamond to propose to Nova. However, Grumpy is swindled since the diamond is a stolen item. Though not a thief, he takes the blame and lands himself in the dungeon of King George's castle. He is the sole prisoner until a woman, Snow White, is also thrown in. While she looks for an escape pathway, Dreamy details how he himself ended up imprisoned. He counsels her on her lost love, Prince Charming, and is fully content to stay in the prison. However, Stealthy suddenly arrives to break him out. Just as the two dwarves leave, Snow White wishes Dreamy the best of luck to gain back his lost love. This prompts him to ask Stealthy to free her, too. The trio argue about which way to leave the castle, with Snow White splitting up with them, as Dreamy and Stealthy head off together. As they reach outside, Stealthy is shot and killed by one of King George's men. Stunned, Grumpy can do nothing to defend himself as King George and many soldiers corner him until Snow White agrees to give herself up for his life. Grumpy quickly exits, but he and the other dwarves accompany Snow White when she finally leaves the castle. She is heartbroken over being forced to reject Prince Charming on King George's orders. Out of gratitude for saving for his life, as well as sympathy for her plight, Grumpy and his brothers take her into their home. Snow White tries to drink a potion to remove her feelings for Prince Charming, but Grumpy reasons that having pain is a part of herself and promises to help her through it. Following this, news spreads of Prince Charming's canceled wedding to Princess Abigail and Grumpy rushes into the cottage to notify Snow White of the good news. However, she already drank the potion and forgot Prince Charming. ("7:15 A.M.")

Alarmed at Snow White's cold personality change after she ingests the potion, Grumpy lures her into the dining hall under the pretense of having dinner, where he and the dwarves have staged an intervention with Jiminy's help. Snow White has no remorse towards their complaints of how horribly she has been treating them, and instead, decides to get rid of her biggest problem, the Evil Queen, by killing her. Grumpy follows her out, and upon finding her stealing armor from one of the Evil Queen's guards, he reprimands her actions. He insists her plan won't work, and drags her back to the maker of the potion, Rumplestiltskin, so he can fix Snow White. To his shock, the Dark One encourages Snow White by giving her a enchanted bow, which is famed to never miss a shot, and a map to look for the perfect spot to use it. From this point on, Grumpy reluctantly backs out from helping Snow White any further and goes back to the cottage. Many days after, Snow White returns, having returned to her normal self, and apologizes for her previous behavior. When she announces that Prince Charming has been taken by King George, the dwarves offer to go with her to save him. ("Heart of Darkness")

For the attack plan to infiltrate King George's castle, Grumpy enlists the help of the fairies, while Red ensures the coast is clear. Though the siege is successful, they are too late, as Prince Charming is now the Evil Queen's captive. Snow White informs her friends that she agreed to meet with the Evil Queen in person for a parley. Despite that Grumpy and everyone else don't like the idea of her going alone and unarmed, Snow White departs anyway. Suspecting something is bound to go wrong, they go to the meeting location and discover Snow White collapsed and lifeless, though she is actually under the influence of a Sleeping Curse. ("An Apple Red as Blood")

While in mourning, Grumpy and his six brothers build a glass coffin to allow her body to rest in it forever in the forest. In the midst of their grief, Prince Charming, who escaped the grasp of the Evil Queen, gallops up to see what is going on. Though late, he requests a chance to say goodbye. The coffin lid is lifted, to which Prince Charming gives Snow White a farewell kiss, triggering the effects of true love and restoring her to life. ("Pilot", "A Land Without Magic")

Grumpy, Prince Charming and the rest of the dwarves look on as Snow White tries rallying villagers to join her in dethroning the Evil Queen. When the Queen herself shows up, she proposes Snow White give up on her claim to the throne and go into exile. She allows the princess to have until sundown tomorrow to deliver an answer, and for every day she refuses, oen of her loyal subjects will die. In a conversation with the dwarves and Prince Charming, Snow White resigns to giving into the Queen's demands. Believing she should fight the Queen, Prince Charming tries gaining support from the dwarves for his cause, but they suspect he wants the throne for himself. Later, the prince forges a fake Excalibur sword and has Snow White free it from a stone as a means to prove she is the rightful ruler of the kingdom. Snow White announces her refusal to surrender the crown, to which the Queen begins magically choking Grumpy. The other dwarves intervene, but all are pushed away by the Queen's magic. With Prince Charming's encouragement, Snow White injuries the Queen with the sword and declares the kingdom is hers. The Queen, deciding their fight will continue on another day, retreats. Afterwards, the dwarves finally accept the prince and celebrate with drinks. As they toast to a new future, Snow White angrily confronts Prince Charming about the fake sword as the dwarves look on in shock. However, all is forgiven once Snow White learns he used the sword in order to help her find courage to stand up to the Queen. ("Lost Girl")

Sometime during the war with the Evil Queen, Grumpy and the dwarves join Snow White and Prince Charming in ambushing Regina. Although they catch her off guard, Regina decides to retreat rather than fight them, since she is feeling generous on her birthday. That night, Snow White toasts her allies in honor of her stepmother, whom she hopes will spend the rest of her birthdays never finding her. Through her magic mirror, Regina witness this and begins crushing what she believes is Snow White's heart. At once, Snow White stands up, seemingly feeling the pain of her beating heart being squeezed. The more pressure Regina puts on the heart, the more frantically Snow White unravels the knotting of her layered clothes, hoping to alleviate the pressure on her chest. Grumpy and the others watch her behavior with concern, until Snow White pulls at her collar, where a tipsy Jiminy falls out from, much to everyone's amusement. ("Souls of the Departed")

After the defeat of King George's army, who are Regina's allies in the war, Regina herself is captured. While the war council discuss what her fate should be, Grumpy, one of the members seated at the table, votes for Regina having a quick, violent death. Snow White doesn't want to kill the Queen, but because she is overruled by the other members of the council, Regina is sentenced to death as punishment for her crimes. At the execution, Grumpy watches the Evil Queen give her last testament to the public. The speech moves a remorseful Snow White, who can't bear to go through with it, and halts the death sentence at the last moment. Believing the Queen is a redeemable person, Snow White tests her. When the Queen proves to still be a vengeful person, she is banished into exile. ("The Cricket Game")

With the land at peace, Snow White and Prince Charming decide to marry in the castle with many of their dear friends, including Grumpy, in attendance. The Evil Queen crashes the wedding as an unexpected guest, and incites terror in everyone except Snow White, before making a serious threat to destroy everyone's happiness. ("Pilot")

After the intrusion, Grumpy makes sure the castle is secure so the Evil Queen can't get in without anyone's notice. He reports this to Snow White and overhears her conversation with Prince Charming as they decide to go on their honeymoon at the old Summer Palace. Grumpy doesn't think it's a good idea considering the threat of the Queen, but Snow suddenly gets a stroke of inspiration, claiming that there is indeed something at the Summer Palace which will help get rid of their nemesis. ("The New Neverland")

Upon learning the Queen's knights burnt down a village, Grumpy arrives there with Snow and Charming to look for survivors. He unhappily asks Snow why they chose to spare the Queen's life in the past, and Snow recalls that they believed this act of mercy would change her. Grumpy bitterly replies that it didn't do any good since, instead of ransacking villages, the Queen is burning them down now. ("A Bitter Draught")

On the night Snow and Charming learn the prophecy about their unborn daughter Emma and the Queen's Dark Curse, Snow makes a wish to help Emma have a happy ending, which the Blue Fairy grants by causing everyone to break out into song. The next morning, Grumpy cheerfully sings about mining and whistling as he and his brothers head off to work, something the Queen witnesses from a mirror in her castle. The dwarves are shocked when the Queen visits them and offers up a scathingly melody about love not standing a chance. As she terrorizes them, she frightens Grumpy by grabbing his ax and breaking it in half. By the following day, everyone forgets that they ever sung, as the Blue Fairy intended it to be this way to ensure all the songs stay safe for Emma's sake. ("Pilot", "The Song in Your Heart")

Months later, on the war council, Grumpy voices his opinion about going to war against the Queen instead of the Blue Fairy's idea of creating a magical wardrobe. He is outvoted when most of the war council would rather the crafting of the wardrobe, which will protect one person from the curse's effects. With the days numbered, Grumpy and Sleepy are on watch duty atop the castle tower to look for the impending curse. On the day Snow White goes into labor and gives birth to Emma, he sights the approaching curse in the form of black smoke and rings the warning bell. After Emma is sent into the wardrobe, Grumpy and the rest of the Enchanted Forest are swallowed up by the curse. ("Pilot")

During First Curse

After the Dark Curse is cast, Leroy becomes a resident of Storybrooke, where he works at the hospital as a janitor and is known to be a notorious drunk. ("Pilot", "Snow Falls")

One day, after ten years under the curse, Leroy is on his janitoral shift at the hospital when David, who recently regained memories of his past life, rushes up to him for help. David calls him by the name Grumpy and urges him to round up the other dwarves, both of which Leroy takes as insults, but Mary Margaret excuses David's behavior by explaining he is a patient from the psychiatric ward that got loose. ("Awake")

On one night eighteen years later, Leroy is arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct and locked up at the jail. The next morning, he sees Emma, who is in the cell next to his, wake up on her cot. The mechanic, Marco, congratulations Emma for finding her son, Henry, though Leroy thinks children are a hassle. Marco disagrees as he was never blessed enough to have a child of his own. Sheriff Graham walks in to release Leroy from his cell and asks him to stay out of trouble. In response to this, Leroy gives him a wide, sarcastic smile. ("Pilot")

As Leroy was one of the two people present in the hospital when John Doe went missing, he is asked by Graham if he saw anything happen. Both he and the security guard, Walter, claim to have not seen anyone leave. As the camera tape is replayed, it shows John Doe walking from his bed unit room and out of a hospital door. This causes an argument to erupt between Leroy and Walter with each blaming the other for delinquencies in not noticing John Doe leave the hospital. Leroy sneers at Walter for sleeping on the job, while the latter takes jabs at him for constantly drinking at work. ("Snow Falls")

One morning, Leroy is eating breakfast at the diner when Mr. Clark comes up to the counter to find a seat with Walter. Mr. Clark asks him to move down so the two of them can sit together. He refuses until Mr. Clark sneezes on his food; causing him to lose his appetite. When he gets up, Mary Margaret pops in to ask for volunteers to help sell candles for Miner's Day. However, her speech is ignored as the public are still not over the recent news of Mary Margaret's affair with David, who is married to another woman. As Leroy heads out the diner, Mary Margaret mistakenly believes he wants to be a volunteer. He sarcastically notes that they'd make quite a team as the town drunk and town harlot working together, though her reputation is far worse than his. During Leroy's walk through town, a nun named Astrid accidentally drops glitter all over him. Rather than getting upset, Leroy becomes infatuated with her. After helping her fix the decoration lights, he talks about his dream of sailing away on a boat to see the world. She encourages him; saying anything is possible if he can dream it. Hoping to impress her, he signs up to sell candles with Mary Margaret. When Leroy learns Astrid spent the convent's entire budget, including the monthly rent, by mistake, he promises to help her earn back all the money. Though he and Mary Margaret try to attract customers, their reputations cause the townspeople to stay away from them. Not wanting to disappoint Astrid, he lies and says all the candles are sold. Leroy later propositions Mr. Gold to sell him a sailboat for five thousand dollars, which is the exact amount Astrid needs, though the latter asks for a lower price. Leroy asks him to forgive the nuns' debts for one month, though Mr. Gold refuses. Unexpectedly, Astrid shows up at the docks to give Leroy a baked pie as thanks for his help, but she discovers the truth about the candles and expresses disappointment in him for lying to her. Unable to help Astrid by conventional means, Leroy causes a power outage at the height of the Miner's Day celebration, which forces the townspeople to buy candles during the blackout. After selling out all the candles, Leroy delivers the money to Astrid and asks if she would like to be the first passenger on his sailboat one day, which she happily agrees to. ("Dreamy")

After First Curse

After Emma breaks the Dark Curse, Leroy joins in the reunion of his fellow dwarves and friends. They walk down the street with Emma, Mary Margaret and David as they figure out what to do next. In a panic, Archie runs over to tell them that Dr. Whale is leading a mob to Regina's house. Although Leroy believes Regina deserves it, the others object as it is not right to kill. They are further obligated to help when Henry pleads for his mother's safety. Later that day, Mr. Gold summons a creature to suck Regina's soul. During the attack of the Wraith, Leroy and Ashley are just leaving the diner when a man walks to go into the building entrance. Leroy shouts that the diner is closed, but the stranger ignores him. ("Broken", "Down the Rabbit Hole")

At the town border, Leroy rallies the dwarves to make it their mission to find out what happens if someone steps outside of town. After he marks the border with a chalk line, they take turns picking straws, and the person with the shortest one will be the test subject for the experiment. While the other dwarves are apprehensive, Leroy forces them to think about the duty they have to protecting Mary Margaret and proving themselves to David. Mr. Clark has the shortest straw, but his refusal to cooperate causes Leroy to push him over the border. Magic courses over Mr. Clark and strips him of his Enchanted Forest memories. Led by Leroy, they rush back into the town square and inform David of the grim consequences if someone were to leave Storybrooke. The news causes a huge stir, but David sets up a town meeting in two hours' time and promises to come up with a plan. At the town hall, residents anxiously await David's arrival. Instead, Regina arrives to demonstrate her newly restored magic powers to them until Henry agrees to go home with her. With no sign of David, the townspeople decide they would rather lose their memories by leaving town than deal with Regina. Leroy is one of the many who attempt to drive out of town, but David puts a stop to it with a heartfelt speech. He convinces them to accept both their Enchanted Forest and Storybrooke selves by drawing strengths from their weaknesses. Moved, they all return home. Later, Leroy and his brothers prepare their pickaxes to begin digging for diamonds in order to make fairy dust. On the street, they pass Mr. Clark. Leroy reassures him that they will restore his memory soon. ("We Are Both")

Leroy and his fellow dwarves continue to mine for diamonds with David in the hopes of making fairy dust and then combing it with a magic hat to rescue Emma and Mary Margaret from the Enchanted Forest. ("The Crocodile")

During one day in the mines, Leroy refuses to stop working, even when the other dwarves want to take a lunch break at Granny's. At one point, he breaks the surface of a wall, which collapses and sends him falling into a cave. From this accidental fall, a whole cavern ceiling of diamonds is discovered, to which David, Henry, and Mother Superior are notified. In a celebration of their success, they all head over to the diner to drink and party. ("Child of the Moon")

While Emma and Mary Margaret are in a race to return to Storybrooke, Mr. Gold and Regina are unwilling to chance the possibility that their shared nemesis, Cora, could be the one coming back instead. With a wand, they steal all the diamonds from the mines and use the power within them to create a portal over the wishing well to kill anyone who tries to enter into Storybrooke. After discovering the diamonds are missing, Leroy and the five dwarves enter the pawnshop to warn Henry of Mr. Gold and Regina's suspected thievery. With Ruby, Henry scrambles over to the wishing well to convince Regina to get rid of the portal trap so Emma and Mary Margaret pass through. Regina relents and absorbs away the portal in time just as Emma and Mary Margaret return. In a rush to save David, who is still under the Sleeping Curse, Mary Margaret hurries back to the pawnshop where she finds the six dwarves watching over him. With true love's kiss, she awakens David. To catch up on lost time, Emma, Mary Margaret, David, Henry and the six dwarves head over to Granny's for dinner. ("Queen of Hearts")

To commemorate Mary Margaret and Emma's victorious return home, the town residents come together at a party celebration held at Granny's. Leroy is chatting with Bashful and Ruby just as Mary Margaret and Emma arrive. While Ruby goes over to give the two a warm welcome, Leroy, Bashful, Dopey and Doc greet David as he makes his way over to them. A hush falls over the diner when David calls everyone's attention and begins making a speech expressing happiness at reuniting with his wife and daughter. Afterwards, all the party guests raise their glasses in cheer, and all except Emma are shocked when Regina walks in. On the defense, Leroy grabs a knife and asks what she is doing here, which Emma quells by saying Regina was invited by her. With that, everyone dispenses to mingle and have fun at the party. Leroy goes to the counter to grab some food while Regina is cutting a piece of lasagna for Henry. She offers Leroy some, though he wonders if it has poison in it. Regina insists it only has red pepper flakes and hands him a plate. With Doc, they try some of the lasagna. ("The Cricket Game")

The death of Archie is announced to the rest of the townspeople after Emma seemingly finds incriminating evidence via the dream catcher of Regina as the murder. Leroy attends the funeral to listen to Mary Margaret give a eulogy dedicated to Archie. After she is finished, Marco gives his own personal farewell. Following this, Leroy, Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Happy, Walter, Marco, Mother Superior, Ruby and Granny spend time in Mary Margaret's apartment for a luncheon. Leroy approaches Emma and Mary Margaret to ask, on behalf of himself and other dwarves, when they will be returning to the Enchanted Forest, which perks everyone else's attention to the conversation. He is concerned about Regina being on the loose, but also about the possibility outsiders can wander into town now that the curse is lifted. Emma believes they are safe for now while Leroy thinks that trouble will happen sooner or later. ("The Outsider")

After an outsider crashes his car into the town border, he is taken the hospital for treatment. Hook and an amnesiac Belle are also taken in as patients. Mr. Gold shows up asking for Belle, but David refuses to let him go further because he is close to killing Hook. Leroy helps to hold Mr. Gold back until Dr. Whale comes to stop the commotion. Along with himself, David, Mary Margaret and Ruby, they attempt to break into the stranger's phone to learn more about him. David asks Leroy for help, to which he humorously states pickaxing and phone hacking are two different things. Emma discovers the outsider's name is Greg Mendell, and from looking at his phone information, he appears to be a normal person. Dr. Whale informs them that Greg is bleeding into the chest cavity, and asks Mr. Gold to use magic to fix it. Mr. Gold refuses to assist and warns them that it'd be better if they don't save the outsider because the man saw his use of magic. Leroy, David, Mary Margaret, Emma and Ruby debate about this subject. While Leroy thinks the stranger could draw unwanted attention to the town's secrets, they decide to save Greg's life. After Dr. Whale leaves the room to prep for the surgery, Greg's phone rings, but no one dares to answer as the call might be traced to Storybrooke. Dr. Whale's sudden disappearance from the hospital prompts Ruby to track and bring him back to perform the surgery and save Greg. Following the successful surgery, Emma questions Greg and learns, much to the relief of everyone else, that he was texting and driving and did not see Mr. Gold using magic. ("In the Name of the Brother")

With David and Mary Margaret, Leroy confront Hook after he is discharged from the hospital, though the pirate claims to know nothing about Cora's plans in Storybrooke. He leads them onto his ship and unveils a shrunken caged giant Cora kidnapped from the Enchanted Forest. Mary Margaret frees the giant, whose name is Anton, but he becomes furious upon seeing David. Anton seems to recognize him as someone and attacks him. Leroy's attempt at intervening causes him to be thrown aside. Mary Margaret stops the rampage by threatening Anton with an aimed arrow, though the giant promises David will pay for what he has done. Leroy is called in by David after Anton the giant regains his colossal size and causes havoc on the town. David tries to explain to the giant that the one who harmed Anton was not him, but his own twin brother, James. Leroy mentions how Anton helped Emma once by giving her a compass. Anton asks to speak to Emma, but upon learning she is out of town, he resumes attacking and chases after the threesome. Seeing as they can't run forever, David allows Anton to kill him to spare the other town residents. As Anton tries to stomp him and creates a hole in the ground, he loses his large stature and shrinks to human size. In the hole, Anton is struggling to keep from slipping, so Granny stabilizes a rope to a car while Ruby and the dwarves keep their grip on it as David goes down to pull Anton to safety. In an effort to make Anton feel welcome, they take him to the diner. Once there, Anton reveals he possesses a beanstalk that can grow magic beans. While Anton is inspecting some of Storybrooke's soil content, Leroy and his brothers arrive to accept Anton as an honorary dwarf and give him his own pickaxe with the name "Tiny". They commence in digging to plant the beanstalk stem. ("Tiny")

To protect the bean fields from being seen by outsiders, Mother Superior enacts a barrier to make the area appear as an empty field unless someone steps inside the barrier. At the bean fields, Leroy and Anton are tending to many rows of growing bean bushes when Mary Margaret and David bring Emma along to show it to her. Anton happily greets her and chats with them until Leroy pulls him back to work. During the afternoon, Leroy and David pick up their order of ten bowls of chili with no beans. Granny wonders what they are up to, but Leroy quickly answers they are just doing some landscaping. Mr. Gold interrupts to request for a private chat with David. Leroy heads back to the bean fields first with their food orders. At sundown, Leroy, Anton and the six miners are driven to the diner by David. Leroy invites David and Mary Margaret to have dinner with them since Anton is buying. Having heard this for the first time, Anton is surprised, to which he is told the new guy always pays. David and Mary Margaret decide to head home. As the car pulls away, they begin walking towards the diner. On the way there, Anton insists he has no money to pay for food. ("Lacey")

Leroy tags along with Mary Margaret and David to check up on the growing beans. Mary Margaret mentions they will need his help when they go home to the Enchanted Forest in fixing up the castle again. As the trio enters past the outside barrier into the bean fields, they are stunned to see all the rows of beans are destroyed. Leroy is deeply troubled by it, and vows to get back at whoever stole them. ("The Evil Queen")

As the impending trigger threatens everyone's safety, Leroy receives a potion from Mother Superior for restoring a person's lost memories. With the other dwarves, he searches the pawnshop for Mr. Clark's old drinking stein, as only an item of great importance to the amnesiac is effective with the potion. Mr. Gold interrupts their search, but when Leroy finds the stein, he quickly orders the dwarves to take Mr. Clark back to the diner so they can make him drink the potion. Before he leaves, Leroy gives Mr. Gold a second batch of the potion, urging him to restore Belle to her original self. He reasons that, since Belle once helped him to remember himself, he wants to return the favor by not letting her die as Lacey. Later, Leroy joins the townspeople in the diner, preparing to leave for the Enchanted Forest. David and Hook procure a magic bean to take everyone to safety, but Henry refuses to go without Regina, who has stayed behind to slow down the trigger in the mines. Mary Margaret suggests sending the trigger through the bean's portal, and though Emma is reluctant to try such a risky plan, Archie persuades her it's the right thing to do. Leroy, along with the others, rally in agreement with Archie, until Emma finally relents. Emma and her family rush to the mines, dead set on capturing the trigger with the bean, but they discover too late that Hook previously swapped the bean for a decoy. Fortunately, with Emma and Regina's combined magic, they deactivate the trigger and save Storybrooke. ("And Straight On 'Til Morning")

The dwarves, accompanied by Archie and Mother Superior, run up to Belle at the docks, where Leroy expresses elation over the town being saved. Belle, however, informs them that though the catalyst has been evaded, Emma and some of the townspeople have gone to Neverland to rescue Henry from Greg and Tamara. Furthermore, she warns they may have unwanted visitors since Mr. Gold has left her in charge of activating a cloaking spell to keep people from entering town. They all head down to the mines, where Leroy leads Bashful, Dopey Mr. Clark and Walter into quarrying a rock for fairy dust, which is needed to enact the spell. Once the rock is cracked open, Belle dumps the cloaking spell into it. Nothing happens, so Leroy presses Belle to believe a little harder, as he suspects the power of belief will make the spell work. Belle attempts this, and after a moment, a stream of magic shoots out, covering a barrier over Storybrooke. Later, the dwarves have lunch near the beach. While most of them are seated at a picnic table, Leroy opts to sit closer to the shore. Upon hearing his brothers remark how things are less trouble without David and Mary Margaret around, Leroy expresses disapproval, stating that they will come back and everything will remain normal. Suddenly, Leroy spots a green fin in the sea and is shocked to see a mermaid-turned-human named Ariel approach him. When she asks to speak with Belle, he takes her straight to the diner. Perturbed by Ariel's lack of clothing and shoes, Granny denies the redhead service at the diner, though Leroy defends Ariel by pointing out the times Ruby has come in scantily clad. Belle then approaches to speak with Ariel, who brings news from Neverland about Mr. Gold. ("Dark Hollow")

When the Jolly Roger, carrying those who went on the Neverland rescue mission, arrives at the dock, Leroy is among the large crowd of townspeople welcoming them back. To everyone's surprise, Mary Margaret announces it was because of Regina's help that they were able to return home. Once again, a safe journey home prompts another celebration at the diner, with most of the townspeople in attendance. ("The New Neverland")

After Pan's curse begins spreading throughout town, Leroy runs up to notify the other residents of the danger. While Regina can stop Pan's curse by undoing her own curse, everyone must pay the magical price by returning to the Enchanted Forest. Regrouping at the border, Leroy gathers there with a handful of other people, including the other dwarves. Regina soon sends Emma and Henry out of town to keep them from the curse's grasp, and as the pair depart in the yellow bug, Leroy and the others watch them go. When the curse cloud approaches, Regina stops Pan's curse by undoing her curse, sending everyone inside the town back to the Enchanted Forest. ("Going Home")

Before Second Curse

After Regina takes magical preventive measures to undo Pan's casting of the Dark Curse, all the inhabitants of Storybrooke pay the price by returning to the Enchanted Forest and reverting to their prior personas. In a group, they manifest in the land of Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip. A plan quickly assembles for everyone to make their way to the Queen's old palace. Before they set out, Grumpy is informed by Jiminy that fifty inhabitants have landed in the Enchanted Forest two miles away. After notifying Prince Charming, he and the rest of the dwarves are dispatched to tell the other scattered residents to make their way to the Queen's palace. On the trek there, Grumpy notices that Regina is suspiciously missing, so Snow White goes looking for her. The two women come back with three of the Merry Men, Friar Tuck, Little John, and Robin Hood, who accompany the group. As they near the palace, Regina discovers a protection spell, cast by whoever currently residing inside, is keeping them out. For the time being, Robin Hood suggests everyone can take shelter at Sherwood Forest. ("New York City Serenade")

As they depart for Sherwood Forest, a flying monkey attacks, sending Grumpy and various other members of the crowd scurrying back to witness the creature nearly knock into Neal, though Regina quickly dispenses of the being by turning it into a stuffed animal. In a group discussion, Belle shares knowledge about the flying monkey's origins in the land of Oz, so Regina determines the person in the palace is the Wicked Witch. A plan is set up to wait for Regina to bring the shield down and then mobilize the whole group into the palace. Once night falls, Grumpy gives the signal when he spots the dissipating barrier, meaning Regina was able to lower it, so everyone begins assembling towards their destination. ("Witch Hunt")

Shortly after learning from Belle of Neal's sacrifice to resurrect Rumplestiltskin and the Dark One's enslavement by the Wicked Witch, Zelena, Aurora and Prince Phillip confess a secret. As soon as they admit Zelena wants Snow White's unborn child, the witch herself pays an ominous visit to the palace to claim the baby will soon be hers. Later, Grumpy, Belle, Prince Charming, Snow White, Regina and Robin Hood discuss counterattacking Zelena. Though disagreeing with Regina's presence on the war council, he grudgingly goes along with it. Deciding Rumplestiltskin would know best how to defeat the Wicked Witch, everyone, minus Grumpy, break into the Dark One's castle. Rumplestiltskin leads them to the banished Good Witch of the South, Glinda, who provides answers to Snow White and Prince Charming of Zelena's weakness—light magic—a criteria Emma fits. In secret, Snow White casts another Dark Curse to reach Emma, but before it takes effect, Zelena drops a potion into the mixture to erase everyone's memories of the last year in the Enchanted Forest. ("A Curious Thing")

During Second Curse

A new curse is cast by none other than Snow White; returning Grumpy and the rest of the Enchanted Forest inhabitants to the town of Storybrooke. However, as a result of Wicked Witch of the West's interference, everyone's last recollection is the final day in Storybrooke when Regina stopped Pan's curse, but no one can recall anything further than that. Mysteriously, Doc and Dopey go missing. Just as Leroy reports this to David, Emma, Hook and Mary Margaret, Happy notices that Bashful is gone as well since he is not answering his cellphone. In an effort to allow Emma and Regina to work in secret to sleuth out the real criminal, Leroy helps them set up a ploy of luring the townspeople into believing the madam mayor is guilty of casting the new curse. At a town hall meeting, he plays his role by accusing Regina as all the residents side with him. As part of the show, even Emma refuses to believe Regina, who angrily causes a tremor before magically dissipating away. Later, Leroy is told by Regina to make an announcement to the townspeople, and tells everyone that Emma caught the mayor making a memory potion to prove she didn't cast the curse. Publicly, this gives hope that whoever takes the potion will remember who enacted the curse, but the news is also to bait the caster out of hiding. ("Witch Hunt", "A Curious Thing")

One day, Emma is busy tracking down Mr. Gold, she is worried about Henry getting involved with the danger in town since he has no memories about his past. In order to keep him safe while she is away, Leroy takes Henry on a fishing trip. ("Quiet Minds")

Hoping to trigger the same events of the last curse in order to break the current one, David, Emma, Mary Margaret and Regina set out to make Henry believe in magic. He regains his memories by touching the storybook, and Regina breaks the curse by giving him a kiss of true love, which restores everyone's recollections of the lost year in the Enchanted Forest. ("A Curious Thing")

After Second Curse

Once the second curse is broken, Zelena sets out for the hospital, where a pregnant Mary Margaret is due to give birth, so she can steal the child as the very last ingredient needed for a time spell. After Emma loses all her magic, which then breaks down a protection barrier around the delivery room, Leroy and Mr. Clark spot Zelena as she approaches the hospital entrance. They alert the on-guard Merry Men, who prepare to fire their arrows, but are no match for the witch's magic. From behind the counter, Leroy and Mr. Clark watch with terror as Zelena and Mr. Gold pass into the hallway. In the aftermath, Zelena successfully makes off with the infant, but Regina herself defeats her sister with light magic and stops the time spell from being enacted. Rather than condemn her to death, Regina spares Zelena's life. Unseen to them, Mr. Gold later kills Zelena; accidentally triggering magic in her pendant, which activates the time spell. ("Kansas")

In a diner celebration welcoming David and Mary Margaret's newborn son, Leroy talks to Granny about Zelena's defeat. He jokes that had Zelena not been stripped of her magic, Aurora would still be a flying monkey and given birth to a monkey baby instead of a human child. Suddenly, the townspeople notice a stream of light radiating to the sky—Zelena's time spell. Through some investigation, Belle, David, Regina and Robin Hood find Zelena missing and decide to leave the time portal untouched for now. Emma and Hook travel through the portal to the past, recreating the first meeting between Prince Charming and Snow White and then return to the present. Leroy later witnesses David and Mary Margaret announcing they are naming their son after a true hero—Neal. ("Snow Drifts", "There's No Place Like Home")

That night after the diner party, Leroy sits in the front passenger seat as Walter is driving on the road. He reproaches Walter; telling him to be careful with the car. In turn, Walter snipes that being the driver means he can drive how he likes. After a moment passes, he is shocked to see his companion has fallen asleep at the wheel. As Leroy tries to regain control of the swerving car, he sees a woman standing in the middle of the road. Out of fright, she uses magic to freeze the entire car into ice. The next morning, Leroy and Walter awaken to the situation and rush into town to inform Emma. As she and Hook investigate a frozen trail leading to a warehouse, a monster made of snow attacks the townspeople. Later, Regina magically obliterates the beast. ("A Tale of Two Sisters")

During a town power outage, Leroy, Granny and Happy head to Mary Margaret's loft to convince her that she must fix the issue. While Mary Margaret believes this is something Regina should handle, Granny asserts it's her duty since she cast the last curse. Additionally, Leroy chimes that they assisted her in reclaiming a kingdom in the Enchanted Forest, and now Storybrooke is her new kingdom that she must rule. At the electrical service site, while Mary Margaret is looking at the circuit system, the trio of friends talk among themselves. Granny suggests reading the manual, but Leroy points out it's in Japanese. When Happy wonders if Marco could help them, Leroy disagrees since they won't get anywhere with a woodcarver. Granny mentions Dr. Whale, but Leroy doesn't believe the doctor has capabilities of an electrician. Interjecting into the dispute, Mary Margaret insists they don't need anyone's help. Moodily, Leroy talks about how grumpy he'll be in the morning without his coffee if the power is not restored by then. In turn, Happy begins stating out loud all the electrical devices that they might not have as his two companions nod in approval. Exasperated, Mary Margaret lashes out, voicing her overworked and exhausting lifestyle since having a new baby, and maintains that although she cast a "little" curse, it wasn't her choice to maintain a town with residents dependent on electricity despite that they previously lived in the Enchanted Forest without it. Lastly, she spitefully tells them to buy a flashlight, which shocks Leroy, Granny and Happy into silence as they exit the service site. ("White Out")

At Mary Margaret's first town conference as the new mayor, Leroy attends and, like everyone else present, she receives a meeting agenda. Of all the listed discussion points, Archie brings up a matter concerning an ice wall. Though Mary Margaret wants to talk about other things first, Leroy rallies the attendees into agreeing that they should hear about the ice wall first. Calmly, Mary Margaret explains the wall is not dangerous, though it does surround the entire town. The news causes dismayed shouting among the crowd, which startles baby Neal. When Leroy questions who created the wall, Mary Margaret informs them of Elsa, and reassures them that she is not an enemy. However, some of the townspeople have already formed a negative option, as Leroy recalls his frozen truck and Granny remembers the snow monster; two incidents which were Elsa's doing. As both David and Mary Margaret try to ease the worried citizens, Robin Hood's wife, Marian, suddenly collapses from an apparent freezing spell. Later, outside the diner, Leroy voices fears about the town possibly being frozen by Elsa since Marian's affliction. Granny, too, believes the ice magic wielder should be stopped. Archie disagrees, believing they can't blame someone without proof, but Leroy insists Elsa's freezing power is enough evidence as it is. As they all walk past the ice cream parlor, Any Given Sundae, no one sees the real culprit smile in satisfaction. ("Rocky Road")

In the clock tower, Leroy and his allies witness the cloud formation of Ingrid's impending spell, which will take effect by sundown. At first, they try scaling the ice wall as a way to escape town before the spell hits, but the barricade is too powerful. A fissure in the ice reveals Anna's lost necklace, which Elsa retrieves. While figuring out their options, Emma sends Leroy and her parents to warn the townspeople about Ingrid's curse. Learning a counter spell can be made with Anna's hair, Emma and Elsa track the missing girl to a mine cave-in. Gathering in the library, Leroy determines it'll take hours to unblock the passage, however, David receives word from Belle that the nuns can make a counter spell with the necklace. Elsa argues they have time to find Anna, but Regina insists they must stop the curse now before everyone is engulfed in it. Leroy then asks if they are going to save the town or Anna. Eventually, the decision is made to sacrifice the necklace. ("Fall")

As the town falls under the influence of Ingrid's curse, mirror shards rain down from the sky and invade people's eyes; causing them to see only the bad in others and turn on each other. When the curse comes into effect, Leroy, dodges a crossbow arrow shot by Happy and runs off, but his pursuer chases after him. In the morning, Leroy is in the middle of a scuffle with Mr. Clark, who he cautions not to sneeze. A snow fall, triggered by Ingrid sacrificing herself to stop the curse, blows through the air. Distracted from their petty arguments, the townspeople gaze happily at the snow and are lifted from the curse. Friends again, Leroy reconciles with Happy and they laugh about their prior crossbow encounter. The pair are then joined by Dopey and Mr. Clark. As Mr. Clark goes to talk with Bashful, Granny and Walter, the remaining trio witness Emma's reunion with her family. ("Shattered Sight")

After Isaac rewrites new lives for everyone, he sends Leroy and every former Enchanted Forest native to an alternate reality inside his book, Heroes and Villains. ("Operation Mongoose Part 1")

During Alternate Reality

After Isaac rewrites everyone's stories in the Heroes and Villains book, Grumpy becomes one of Queen Snow White's underlings. With his six brothers, they watch over the Queen's woods and set up a trap that captures Isaac, who he orders the dwarves to search. Happy finds a "Long Live Regina" pin, causing Grumpy to suspect he's a traitor, before knocking him out. Taking him to the Queen, Grumpy then tells her about his treachery. Isaac tries to convince Snow White that he's on her side and insists a boy named Henry is trying to take away her kingdom, but she doesn't believe him and orders Prince Charming to kill him. However, she changes her mind when Isaac reveals knowledge about Regina causing her true love James' death and persuades her to get revenge by killing her and Henry. ("Operation Mongoose Part 1")

Sent to hunt down Regina, the dwarves and Granny are hindered when the Blue Fairy paralyzes them with dark fairy dust. While seated at the council table, Grumpy states why they couldn't reach Regina, but Granny snidely remarks that he should take responsibility instead of making excuses. Before the argument escalates, Snow White asks for silence. The Queen reasons she is not angry with them, but must set an example for their failures. Stopping behind Doc, she rips out his heart and crushes it to ash, killing him, as the rest of her followers look on in terror. Before walking out, Snow White suggests Grumpy shouldn't fail next time or the dwarves will lose another one of their brethren. Once Henry harnesses the pen, he reverts Isaac's stories and returns everyone to Storybrooke. ("Operation Mongoose Part 1", "Operation Mongoose Part 2")

Before Third Curse

Harnessing the pen, Henry reverts Isaac's stories and returns everyone to Storybrooke. That night, a celebratory diner party commences, with Leroy and most of the townspeople in attendance. The festivities are interrupted when Belle enters the diner seeking help to save Mr. Gold, who is on the verge of death and must be saved before he loses all his humanity. ("Operation Mongoose Part 2")

After Emma has become the new Dark One and flees to another realm, her family and friends work to find her using the Apprentice's wand, however, Zelena gets hold of it and creates a cyclone. Leroy, Happy and Doc spot the monstrosity and rush into the diner, where many are seeking shelter. After Mary Margaret reassures the dwarves that they summoned it, Regina tells them to leave, but Leroy insists on staying, much to Mary Margaret's surprise. He relates frustration about being on the sidelines too long, and that the dwarves will be there with her, even if Mary Margaret says they aren't needed because they aren't willing to abandon her. Mary Margaret thanks him for the kind words, just before the cyclone whisks the diner to the Enchanted Forest. ("The Dark Swan")

When Emma is found, she is led back to the diner by some of her family and friends, where Leroy and the rest of the crew come out of the building to greet her. Soon, they are approached by King Arthur and his knights, who believe they are prophesied to reunite them with Merlin. The whole group is then led to King Arthur's castle in Camelot. ("The Dark Swan")

At the castle, King Arthur introduces the group to his Queen, Guinevere, and he announces there will be a ball held in their honor. Leroy reacts positively to this news, telling Happy and Doc that it is a good thing they came, as Granny chimes in that she won't have to cater. During the ball, Leroy sees Belle keeping watch on her magical rose, which is linked to Mr. Gold's life. He suggests that the rose symbolizes hope, but Belle is not so sure, seeing as every petal that falls means Mr. Gold is closer to dying. Leroy reasons that for every petal still on the rose, those are chances he'll live, too. She thanks him for the advice and asks him to dance, and when he agrees, they make their way onto the ballroom floor. ("The Price")

Once Emma saves Hook's life by making him a Dark One, he decides to seek out revenge on Mr. Gold, and to reach his nemesis, he casts another curse to take everyone back to Storybrooke. Emma, in the hopes of finding a way to return him to his old self, she absorbs Hook's memories from the last six weeks into a dreamcatcher, and she does the same with Leroy and everyone else, to ensure no one remembers Hook becoming a Dark One, before adding the dreamcatcher to the curse brew, creating a full memory wipe. Soon, the curse spreads and sends them all back to Storybrooke. ("Broken Heart")

After Third Curse

Upon arrival to Storybrooke, Leroy and the others crash to the floor from the impact of the diner dropping onto the ground, and as they get up, the group realize they are still in Camelot attire, and the last thing anyone recalls is entering King Arthur's castle. Emma, in order to keep Hook's secret under wraps, enters and professes that she will punish them for what they did to her. ("The Dark Swan", "The Price", "Broken Heart")

The next day, Leroy heads out to the town line with the remaining five dwarves, asking asks for a volunteer to cross the border. All the dwarves say, "Not it", except for Dopey, who holds up a notepad where he wrote, "Not it". Leroy makes him go anyway, but before Dopey can get across, David, Mary Margaret and Regina drive up to stop them. Leroy insists they have to know whether it's safe to leave town since there's no one to protect them now. Dopey crosses and nothing happens, but then, he turns into a tree. Later, while walking down the street as they carry their pickaxes, Leroy and Happy discuss Dopey's state and wonder if he can still eat tacos even though he's a tree. Suddenly, they are approached by a man on horseback, whose two knights dismount and draw their swords. The dwarves try to fight back, but they are quickly disarmed. The man takes off his helmet, revealing he is King Arthur], and demands to know why he was brought to this land. Leroy and Happy take him to see Regina, Mary Margaret and David at the mayor's office, where they brief him on Emma's curse and the memory wipe. Robin Hood notifies them about Little John finding other Camelot residents in the woods, to which all the men go to search for them. After Robin is kidnapped by a fury, Leroy, David, Mary Margaret and Arthur intervene when the fury summons a keeper of the underworld to take Robin. The group is temporarily stunned by the fury’s magic, to which Regina forces the fury to take her instead. Mary Margaret, refusing to abandon her, links hands with her, and after everyone else does the same, the fury’s power explodes on itself. That night, Leroy and Walter haul the statue Mr. Clark into the diner, as the other dwarves follow them in. While all six dwarves are all sitting in a booth altogether, Regina walks past, magically reversing Mr. Clark’s state. ("The Price")

As the other dwarves are mining, Leroy encourages them to be productive since Dopey can't at the moment. Happy jokes that Dopey is helping by producing oxygen, causing everyone else to laugh at the comment, though a stern Leroy tells them to stay focused. At this, they resume mining, only to be interrupted by Emma's unexpected presence. After she steals Happy's pick ax, the dwarves go to David and Mary Margaret, demanding they do something about their daughter. Leroy threatens to take action with Emma if they won't, and he calls out David for acting like a scared parent rather than the sheriff. In an effort to keep things calm, David asserts that he'll figure out a way to get the ax back. Disappointed and upset with his response, the dwarves leave in a huff. ("Siege Perilous")

After Hook, as a Dark One, has let the previous Dark Ones into town, Leroy and the other dwarves join the main crew to stop him. They split up to look for Hook, and as the dwarves search together, they find themselves cornered and surrounded by six Dark Ones. After the Dark Ones let them go, the dwarves regroup with everyone else, unsure of what just transpired. On Mr. Gold's suggestion, they check their wrists, with all realizing the Dark Ones have branded each of them with a symbol. Since the Dark Ones cannot fully exist without making living souls to take their places in the Underworld, the branded residents will be taken away by Charon once the moon reaches its zenith. In the end, a reformed Hook absorbs the darkness, having Emma kill him, extinguishing all the Dark Ones, therefore saving everyone who was branded from their impending deaths. ("Swan Song")

While Mr. Gold is away in the Underworld, Leroy spends time with Belle at the diner for lunch. From the Underworld, Mr. Gold accidentally sees Belle with Leroy in Storybrooke within a crystal ball, which he is using to find Neal, who, unbeknownst to him, has already moved on to a better place after his death. However, since Mr. Gold is specifically searching for his child, the ball shows him, Belle because she is unknowingly pregnant with his baby. ("Devil's Due")

Following Hades' defeat by Zelena, at the cost of Robin's life, Leroy attends the funeral to mourn the loss of Robin. As he looks on, some of the townspeople pay their respects by placing rose entwined arrows on Robin's casket. ("Last Rites")

After Robin's funeral, Leroy joins the other townspeople at the diner for the wake. When Mr. Gold absorbs Storybrooke's magic into a piece of the Olympian Crystal, a tremor erupts through town, which is felt by everyone in the diner. ("Only You")

Weeks before the arrival of the Untold Stories residents, Leroy and the other six dwarves find a way to free Dopey from his tree form. Leroy visits Archie for a therapy session, but before he can talk about his issues, Emma comes in. Archie cuts the session short, despite Leroy protesting that he paid for an hour session. He complains about the work problems he wanted to talk about, such as Dopey getting a master's degree, but with him gone, he's had to pick up on Dopey's shift in the mines. Additionally, he thinks it's unfair that, while he has to work, Dopey gets to flirt with co-eds. Emma is surprised to hear Dopey is back again, to which Leroy tells her about the dwarves getting him free weeks ago, and that they weren't waiting for her to fix things. Later, Leroy supervises Lady Tremaine as she picking up trash as punishment for trying to harm Ashley and Clorinda. ("The Other Shoe")

While Dr. Jekyll continues recreating the serum, Leroy and Doc are left to protect him after Regina leaves to get Mr. Gold's help. Jekyll asks Leroy to fetch him a mutton sandwich with extra pickles from Granny's, which the dwarf balks at until the latter says it'll help him think and work on the serum. Leroy complies, but he returns to proclaim that he is done doing menial work because the dwarves are protectors of Storybrooke. This assertion is put to the test when the Queen and Mr. Hyde show up, and though Leroy and Doc grab their pickaxes for a fight, the Queen swiftly ends the battle by putting the pair to sleep. ("Strange Case")

On another day, Leroy shows up for therapy again, except Archie is not in his office, so he phones David to ask about Archie's whereabouts. ("Street Rats")

One evening, Leroy spots the Queen walking down Main Street and he calls David to let him know. As Leroy and Mr. Clark exit the diner later on, they notice the Queen standing nearby. Leroy urges Mr. Clark to call David for help, but before the latter can finish dialing the number, a portal manifests inside the diner, startling both of them. Leroy shouts in dismay over being "portaled" as he and Mr. Clark run off, while the Queen stays behind to investigate. A cloaked figure, who came out of the portal, turns the Queen into a serpent and traps her in a cage, a transformation that Leroy witnesses. He later brings the Queen to David and tells him about seeing the hooded person. ("Wish You Were Here")

At the dock, Leroy sees Hook board the Nautilus to leave Storybrooke, but he remains unaware that Killian was going to tell Captain Nemo that he changed his mind. He later tells Emma what he saw at the dock, which causes Emma to believe Hook chose to leave her. ("A Wondrous Place")

Leroy, alongside several other citizens of Storybrooke, is called to a meeting by Regina, who reveals that Snow and David once had the chance to leave all of the residents of Storybrooke to suffer under the curse so the two of them could reunite with Emma, but because they didn't and sacrificed their happiness for them, she asks the townsfolk to repay the favor. Taking out a cup filled with the essence of the sleeping curse that was cast on Snow and David by the Evil Queen, Regina suggests that if all of the townsfolk take a sip, it could dilute the curse enough to keep them all awake, though Leroy expresses concern over her uncertainty about whether it will actually work. However, after watching Regina, Hook, Emma, and Henry ingest the drink, Leroy steps up to have a drink, stating that he could use a nap. Although everyone falls asleep as Snow and David wake up, they soon awaken afterward, proving that Regina's plan worked. ("Awake")

At the wedding reception for Emma and Hook's wedding, Leroy sits with some of the other dwarves as he watches the two get married. Afterward, as the couple sing and dance down the aisle, he begins singing along with them as well. When the Black Fairy's Dark Curse bursts out of the clock tower, Leroy ominously shouts about the arrival of the curse. ("The Song in Your Heart")

After Fourth Curse

Following the end of the Black Fairy's curse and the final battle, Leroy, Walter, and Mr. Clark show their appreciation for Regina by changing the lettering on her office door from "Mayor's Office" to "Regina Mills Queen". When they are finished with it, Regina arrives, to which they shield her from the door at first but then step aside to let her see the words on it. As the three tip their hats to her, Regina smiles happily at them, touched at their handiwork. ("The Final Battle Part 2")

During Henry's graduation party at Granny's, Leroy gets drunk and makes several toasts in honor of all the curses he's known before. When Leroy gets around to making another toast, Henry opts to go home early with Regina, much to her relief over not having to sit through another one of the dwarf's ramblings. ("Is This Henry Mills?")

After Fifth Curse

On another day in Storybrooke, Leroy and two of the dwarves, Walter and Doc, walk down the street with their pick axes slung over their shoulders as they whistle to the tune of "Heigh-Ho". They stop outside the diner, where Granny comes out with seven packed sandwiches for Leroy, who happily accepts them. When Leroy turns around, however, a speeding truck suddenly screeches to a halt in front of him, startling him into dropping all the bags. Two women, Tilly and Margot, hop out to apologize for spoiling his lunch before they delve into a rushed explanation about a curse and that Henry and his family needs their help. As Leroy exchanges a skeptical look with Granny, Archie mentions previously seeing Henry in Storybrooke at his graduation ceremony. The women then state that the curse brought them back in time so technically the Henry they know is now all grown up and they need to tell Snow White and Prince Charming what happened. Tilly asks Leroy if he understood what she just said, and Leroy confirms he did but then menacingly regards her and Margot as intruders of Storybrooke. The girls, upon running away to avoid Granny's crossbow, are pursued by Leroy, Walter, and Doc. ("Leaving Storybrooke")

In the Wish Realm, when Wish Rumplestiltskin creates new storybooks to condemn the heroes in all the realms to prisons where they live out unhappy endings, Grumpy's name is on the spine of one of these books. ("Leaving Storybrooke")


Mr. Clark
