In one kingdom's castle in the Enchanted Forest, Jack is having a secret rendezvous with the prince, James, in his bedroom. As they kiss passionately, James' father, King George, storms in and demands his son cease what he is doing. The treasury of the kingdom is being run down. King George orders James to investigate a giant that's been sighted nearby. In the woods near the castle, Jack and James see the giant, Anton, watching people outside a tavern window. In a friendly gesture, Jack gives Anton a magic mushroom so he can shrink to human size. After he does so, the couple take him to the pub. Taking advantage of the naive giant, they trick him into feeling pity for their kingdom, which is in dire need of money to pay off debts. Anton mentions magic beans, but then offers treasure instead. As he returns up the beanstalk to fetch the treasure, Jack and James lead an army up to infiltrate the giants' home and steal magic beans. On orders of his brother, Arlo, Anton destroys the beans before they can take them. While James is busy grabbing valuables, Jack duels Arlo and stabs him with her poisoned blade. Before she can flee, Arlo pierces her with the same weapon. Mortally wounded, Jack pleads for help from James, who coldly informs her that he has a kingdom to run and flees down the beanstalk. Presumably, Jack later succumbs to her injury, dying with her sword beside her. ("Tiny")
Many years later, Hook mentions all the giants except for one are deceased from the past battle against humans. Although he is aware of Jack's part in slaying the giants, he is unaware, due to alterations to the battle's story, that Jack was a woman. When Emma and Hook sneak into the castle of the remaining giant, Anton, to look for an enchanted compass, they stumble upon Jack's skeleton with a sword nearby. Later, Emma uses her late uncle's lover's sword to threaten Anton. ("Tallahassee")
- Among the numerous fairy tale illustrations and cut-outs pinned to the wall in Henry's room is "Jack and the Fairy Harp, Escaping From the Giant" by the British caricaturist and book illustrator George Cruikshank, from his book Fairy Library (c. 1853-1854), later re-published as The Cruikshank Fairy-Book in 1911. It depicts a scene from "Jack and the Beanstalk", where Jack escapes from the giant. ("The Thing You Love Most", "The Price of Gold", "The New Neverland")
