I thought my story came to an end a long time ago, and then new people came into my life... People who gave me a second chance. I can't wait to see what's in store for me next. Well, for everyone. I refuse to believe there won't be more adventures, more love, more family. And yes, there will be more loss, because that's just a part of life. And in the end, we can get past it all... with hope.
Regina Mills

"Leaving Storybrooke" is the twenty-second and final episode of Season Seven of ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, and directed by Ralph Hemecker. It is the one hundred and fifty-fifth episode of the series overall, and premiered on May 18, 2018.

This episode is the second part of the season seven finale and the series finale.


Wish Rumple's evil plan is revealed and Regina realizes the only hope to stop him is by turning Wish Henry from his path for vengeance. Meanwhile, Tilly and Margot try to get help in Storybrooke. With his hope of ever being reunited with Belle fading, Weaver struggles to find a way to defeat his evil alter ego; and when Rogers' life is threatened, he is faced with the ultimate sacrifice.[2]


Deleted Scenes

"In a Hurry"

This scene is included on Once Upon a Time: The Complete Seventh and Final Season.

In Storybrooke, in the newly created United Realms, Roni tries to run the engine of her car, while Kelly asks why they don't just poof where they are trying to go because they're getting late. Roni asks her what they are getting late for, but Kelly avoids the question, only saying that it's a meeting Roni does not want to miss. Kelly magically fixes the car and advises her sister to get dressed.

United Realms: Extended

The scene where Henry is riding down Storybrooke Main Street in the newly created United Realms was originally accompanied with a sequence with Tilly, Margot and Rogers in front of Granny's Diner.[3] There are a couple of lines where they say that they are heading somewhere (meaning Roni's coronation) and Rogers asks Henry, "Did you get it?", meaning Roni's crown.[4] At the same time, Archie and Pongo are walking down the street.[3] There was also a sequence where Henry is wearing the same costume and riding through a forest,[5] presumably on his way to Roni's coronation.

Most of the footage was deleted in post-production, although Archie and Pongo can still be glimpsed in the lower left hand corner of the screen as Henry rides through Storybrooke.[6]

Production Notes

  • This episode contains the most number of guest starring and uncredited cast members in the whole series.
  • Sleepy and Dr. Whale's names are misspelled "Sleep" and "Dr. Wale", respectively, in the press release.[2]
    • The credit of Dr. Whale is a mistake in itself as David Anders does not appear in the episode. It is likely that the release was meant to read David Avalon instead, since Doc does appear and is missing in the press release.
  • This is the only episode of the series where the press release solely credits Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas as Snow White and Prince Charming, despite the fact only Mary Margaret Blanchard and David Nolan appear outside of archive footage.[2]
  • The show makers asked Meghan Ory to reprise her role as Red Riding Hood / Ruby for the finale, but she was unable to appear because of the scheduling conflicts.[13]
  • An establishing shot of the Wish Realm version of the dark castle[14] is stock footage from the background plate used for the view of the Dream World version of the original dark castle in the Season Six premiere "The Savior",[15] and from an establishing shot of the same building in the Enchanted Forest in the Season Six episode "Changelings".[16]
  • Fans and harnesses were used to achieve the scenes where Tilly and Rogers are being sucked into their prison realms.[19][20]
  • Footage of a male Munchkin on the streets of Storybrooke after it became part of the United Realms was filmed,[21] but this ended up being cut from the episode.
  • Jakob Davies, who portrayed Pinocchio for most of the show, being replaced by his younger brother Jack Davies by the time of the Season Six episode "The Song in Your Heart",[22] accompanied Jack to the set on the last day of filming for the series finale.[23]
    • It is also confusing for Pinocchio to be there, since both August and Wish Pinocchio were adults by the time of when there were last seen.
  • Originally, Emma and Hook's baby was not going to appear on the show.[24]
  • Roni's coronation took two days to film.[25] Each side of the crowds were filmed separately.[20] According to Adam Horowitz, everyone, including Jennifer Morrison and Lana Parrilla, worked the first day.[25] Rose Reynolds was not present when Jennifer filmed her segments[20] on the first day.[25] Ginnifer Goodwin's and Josh Dallas' portion of the scene was shot on the second day. By that time, Jennifer had left for scheduling reasons. The only interactions that had to be digitally "faked" were between Emma, Snow and David.[25]
  • At a fan convention in 2018, Rebecca Mader proposed the series finale would involve everyone from all the realms ending up all together in Storybrooke, despite not knowing at the time that this is exactly what would happen in the episode script.[26]
  • The shot of a garden pinwheel of Tinker Bell on a house lawn in Storybrooke at the end of the episode[27] is stock footage from the Season One premiere "Pilot".[28]
  • It is unclear when the ending of the episode takes place. The fact that Roni seems to cast the Dark Curse right after the events of the death of Weaver makes it a time paradox, since the events of this episode occurs before Henry graduates from high school, making it impossible for some of the characters existing in the Royal Castle. However, there is also no explanation if the group first finds a way to get back to their original timeline, or the Dark Curse that Roni casts automatically sends them to that time. Regardless, it remains unknown.
  • Kevin Santarosa, a production staff member on the show, appears as a guest at Roni's coronation.[9] He can be seen standing behind Rogers and next to Marco.[29]

  • Fittingly enough, the accompanying illustration shows Snow White in a desert (as seen in the Season Six episode "Street Rats", the Cave of Wonders is located in the desert realm of Agrabah). The caption reads "The shifting sands had Snow disorientated and heartsick with yearning."[43]
  • The story is based on Disney's Aladdin, where the Disney version of the Cave of Wonders is guarded by a spirit with the shape of a tiger's head. The cave can only be entered by a chosen individual and anyone else who makes attempts to enter are given a warning by the tiger. If they try to enter the cave anyway, they are killed by the spirit.
  • When Roni opens her own book, a micro-excerpt from the "Cinderella" fairy tale can be glimpsed.[44]
  • The illustration of Roni shows her sitting alone on a rock in the middle of the ocean, with a shipwreck in the background. The caption reads "Regina knew the most important thing was not to lose hope. She would see her son again.[36]
  • According to an alternate shot posted on the website of Gina Mackay,[45] who worked as a graphic designer on Season Seven; and prop pages auctioned off[46] or sold[47] online, the page next to the illustration reads:

Harsh sunlight beat down on Regina as
she stood on a slippery rock. She squint-
ed through the brightness, trying to get
a sense of where this other, darker Rum-
had sent her. All around her,
in every direction, was an endless expanse of ocean.
Regina looked out at the horizon, but there was no land
in sight, no sign of life. She yelled out to the watery
void, "Hello? Can anyone hear me?" But there was no
response, not even an echo of her own voice. Just the
crashing of waves on this lonely rock she now called

ise of seeing her son. But the currents grew stronger and
stronger, until Regina became swept up in a massive
wave that took her right back to her barren rock. She
tried again. And again. But no matter how hard she
swam, the water would always pull her right back where
she started.
Regina collapsed onto the rock in exhaustion. "A
ship will come," she thought. So she watched the hori-
zon. But a ship never came. And as days turned to
weeks turned to months, any speck of hope in Regina
faded away, and she came to realize she would never
see her family again.

Another unseen page contains an excerpt from the Grimm fairy tale "Little Sister and Little Brother" combined with another excerpt from "The Pink".[46] Another unseen page contains another excerpt from "The Pink", while a third page contains another excerpt from "Little Sister and Little Brother".[47]
  • Kelly's book contains an illustration of Zelena looking out the porthole of the Nautilus. The cation reads "”I hate fish and I have no desire to live like one,” Zelena thought as she looked out the porthole."[48]
  • For David, Rogers and Lucy's books, green fields were used so that the illustrations could be digitally added in post-production. According to a prop photograph posted on an online auction, the captions read:[49]
  • "Charming knew exactly where he was, and yet had never felt so lost."
  • "Captain Hook climbed atop a large mushroom and surveyed the land around him."
  • "“My hair will never grow long enough. Not in a thousand years,” thought Lucy."

It was cold, Alice thought to herself. Really cold.
Alice hadn't seen her breath like that since last winter in
Hyperion Heights. She watched as the breath floated off
into the starry night. A moment ago she had thought
she saw the light of a city in the distance, but as her
eyes adjusted she came to realize it was simply the moon
reflected off the frozen tundra that stretched away to
forever. Alice wasn't just cold, she was alone. Alice
slumped on a rock, hugging herself, trying to keep warm.
She wondered if she would survive the night. And more
than that, she wondered if she would ever see her father,
or Robin, again. She had spent so much of her life alone,
now it looked like that's how she would end her life.
Only just then, the rock beneath her bum began to
quake. Startled, Alice sprung to her feet, but the rock
rolled toward her as if in pursuit! She turned to fee, but
another rock from nearby her side rolled her way. And
another from behind her. And a dozen more, from all
directions. They circled, herding Alice through an obvi-
ous attack pattern! Alice readied herself. For what, she
did not know when -- The rocks unfurled themselves, as
rocks almost never do. Arms and legs formed on each as
one after the other they revealed themselves to be little

stone men. None were taller than Alice's knee, but
together they made an intimating force. Alice knew
exactly what they were: Trolls. She had experience with
trolls, but she didn't know what to make of this little
army that surrounded her now. She was scared --

  • A behind the scenes photograph posted by Keegan Connor Tracy on Twitter,[54] and a prop page auctioned off online,[55] reveal that the Wish Blue Fairy's book shows Blue crying in a forest. The caption reads "The Blue Fairy soon realized she wasn't in her home anymore".
    • According to the online auction, the back of the illustration contains yet another excerpt from "The Pink".[55]
    • According to another prop page, auctioned off on eBay, Blue's story reads:[56]

The Blue Fairy soon realized she wasn't in her
home anymore. In fact, she wasn't anywhere near her
home. She was in another realm entirely, and that
wasn't even the worst part of all of this. Not only had the
spell ripped her away from home, it had brought her
somewhere very dark, and very dangerous. Because this
was not an ordinary forest, and these trees that surround-
ed her, nearly blotting the sky, certainly weren't ordinary
tress. They were moving, slow at first, then faster, their
branches starting to articulate like limbs, their knotted
trunks forming what began to look almost like a face if
you squinted just right. The Blue Fairy thought for a
moment of flying into the air for safety, but saw the
branches closing over her like some kind of net, meant
to catch things that foolishly sailed into the sky. She set
herself for a battle, realizing that she may need every bit
of magic she possessed to make it out alive. As
she prepared herself, she tried to remember the lessons
that had been taught to her as a novice fairy, all those
years ago. To be confident and brave and remember that
fairies are emblems of goodness in the world. And what-
ever forces of darkness may be arrayed against them, the
goodness will l always win. She said those words over and

over in her mind trying to give herself the strength,
trying to imagine that her sisters were with her. But she
found that courage was hard to summon as self doubt
crept in. If only she hadn't been so foolish, she
thought, allowing herself to be captured. She shook
those thoughts out of her mind, knowing that no
time for negative self talk. This was a time to be reso-
lute and strong, and everything a fairy must be to sur-

Growing up, Prince Charming has always wanted
to have brothers. He had dreamed of hacing a pack of
other boys to run around with and play games and rogh-
house. He had always through that would be the idyllic
childhood. And yet here he ways, trapped with the Lost
, as they lived out the dark and twisted version of
that childhood fantasy. Here, the "brothers" always
seemed to be in some sort of competition with each
other, and more often than not, the competition turned
deadly. They all dreamed of being the first among the boys,
and they would do anything to prove that they were the
most capable, the strongest, the deadliest.They tried to
drag Charming into their dark games, but he wanted
nothing to do with them, or this place. All he wanted
was to be back home. To see his wife and children
again. But he had learned through bitter experience,
that was impossible now. The magic that brought him to
this realm insured [sic] that he would never escape from it. So
he had nothing to do but look out into the dark water,
completely alone, dreaming of the life he once had. All
he wanted was to be back in his comfortable home in
Storybrooke, telling this tale along with the others.
Tales about impossible moment, the close calls, the

daring escapes. And yet, something told him that this
time was different. That something her was per-
manent. After all, it was always family working
together that got each other out if trouble. But for the
first time in many year he felt alone. Like maybe
this time, hope would not wind the day.

  • When the portals to the storybook realms are open and everyone hangs on to prevent themselves from being sucked in, pages from Wish Rumplestiltskin's storybooks are turning in the wind:
    • One page contains a blurred illustration of Sleeping Beauty lying on a bed.[58] It is called "The Sleeping Princess" and is from the 1916 fairy tale collection The Allies' Fairy Book, illustrated by the famous book English book illustrator Arthur Rackham.
    • One book contains an excerpt from the Grimm fairy tale "Little Sister and Little Brother".[59]
      • The opposite page contains another excerpt from "The Pink".[59] The same excerpt can also be seen in the storybook lying next to Weaver.[60]
    • Another page contains a blurred excerpt from the "Cinderella" fairytale.[61]
      • The opposite page contains another excerpt from "Little Brother and Little Sister".[61]
    • A third excerpt from "The Pink" can be glimpsed on another page.[62]
    • Yet another excerpt from "The Pink" is printed in the storybook next to Rogers.[63]

Costume Notes


  • In the scene where Leroy, Doc, and Walter arrive in front of Granny's Diner to receive their packed lunches from Granny, Archie is nowhere to be seen. After Leroy accepts the lunch bags and turns around as the Rollin' Bayou comes down the street, the next shot shows Archie is suddenly there with his dog Pongo.

    "Little Sister and Little Brother": Notice how the page on the left opens with "The little sister said, “Oh, I pray you, dear little brother, do not drink, or you will become a roe, and run away from me.” But the little brother had knelt by the brook, and had bent down and drunk some of the water, and as soon as the first drops touched his lips he lay there a young roe."
    "The Pink": Notice how the opposite page opens with the beginning of the fairy tale; "There was once a Queen, who had not been blessed with children. As she walked in her garden, she prayed every morning that a son or a daughter might be given to her."

But the step-mother said, “No, Cinderella, you have no clothes and you can not dance. You would only be laughed at.”
    "Little Sister and Little Brother": Notice how the opposite page starts with the opening of the fairy tale: "Little brother took his little sister by the hand and said, “Since our mother died we have had no happiness. Our step-mother beats us every day, and if we come near her she kicks us away with her foot. Our meals are the hard crusts of bread that are left over. And the little dog under the table is better off, for she often throws it a choice morsel. God pity us, if our mother only knew. Come, we will go forth together into the wide world.”"

    Notice how the text in the upper right hand corner on page 2 begins with "the idea came to him one day that the Prince might wish to go to his father some time, and he would thereby be placed in a very awkward position. So he took the maiden aside, and said to her, “Tonight, when the boy is asleep, go and drive this knife into his heart. Then bring me his heart and his tongue. If you fail to do it, you will lose your own life.”

    First page: Look for "The Prince stayed on at the castle for a time, thinking of his mother, and wondering if she was still alive. At last he said to the maiden, “I am going into my own country. If you like you can go with me; I will take you.” She answered, “Alas! it is so far off, and what should I do in a strange country where I know no one?”.
    Second page: Opens with (note that many of the words are off-screen; this is the text in its entirety) "The King was furious when he saw him, and ordered him to be thrown into the deepest dungeon. Then the huntsman said further, “My father, would you like to see the maiden who so tenderly saved my life when she was ordered to kill me, although by so doing she might have lost her own life?” The King answered, “Yes, I will gladly see her.” Then his son said, “Gracious father, I will show her to you first in the guise of a beautiful flower.” He put his hand into his pocket, and brought out the pink. It was a finer one than the King had ever seen before. Then his son said, “Now, I will show her to you in her true form.”"
