SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Past. A crowd has gathered to watch a puppet show.
Princess Puppet: I wish, I wish, but nothing changes. I wish I was better at wishing! Alas, will no one slay this fearsome dragon and win my hand in marriage?(a young boy weaves through the crowd, pick-pocketing)
Prince Puppet: Aha! I will slay the fearsome dragon, milady, or die trying!
Princess Puppet: Goodbye, dear prince. It was nice knowing you!(the princess puppet is removed, and a dragon puppet is brought in in its place)
Dragon Puppet: Who dares disturb my sleep?
Prince Puppet: Uh, he went that way!
Dragon Puppet: Then I will go that way!
Prince Puppet: Very good idea. You go that way and I'll...(dialogue fades out)
SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Past. In the woods after the puppet show, the puppeteers Myrna and Martin and their son Jiminy; are examining their earnings)
Martin: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Careful, careful.
Myrna: Don't let those coins roll away.
Martin: No, they might disappear. (he performs a sleight of hand trick, making the coin disappear and "reappear" behind Myrna's ear) Whoop, whoop, ha! Look at that.
Jiminy: (pulling a cricket in a cage out of a bag) Oh, a cricket! I love crickets.
Myrna: Crickets are trouble. Noisy bugs.
Jiminy: But they get to do whatever they want, hopping from place to place. They're free.
Myrna: You're free.
Martin: To do what we want.
Myrna: To be who you are.
Martin: And you are who you are.
Jiminy: Well maybe I want to be something else. Maybe I don't wanna steal. Maybe I wanna be good.
Martin: All that from a cricket.
Myrna: Told ya. Trouble.
Martin: "Good" is another word for "weak".
Myrna: Let us do the thinking for you.
Martin: That's what parents are for.
Myrna: To help you.
Martin: You are who you are, and there's no changing it Jiminy. Right?
Martin: Right. Problem solved.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Dr. Archie Hopper's office. Dr. Hopper is writing during a session with Henry Mills.
Henry: You weren't always a cricket.
Archie: I wasn't al... Oh right, because um... because you think I'm Jiminy Cricket. Why... Why do you... Why do you think that Henry?
Henry: It's just because of who you are.
Archie: And who am I?
Henry: You're a conscience. You help people see right from wrong.
Archie: So all of the crickets in Storybrooke, they were once people too?
Henry: There aren't any crickets here. Listen. (he goes to the window and listens. An owl is heard hooting, but no crickets are heard)
Archie: Maybe it isn't late enough.
Henry: There's never been crickets here. You've just never noticed.
Archie: So you think that's proof that there's a curse?
Henry: Yes, but I know it's not enough. I'm looking for more.
Archie: So Henry, look, I asked you this once before and you said you'd think about it. Why do you think it is so important that this is real?
Henry: It... It just is.
Archie: Alright, well... Keep thinking about that answer Henry, 'cause I think there's something buried there.
SCENE. Storybrooke. Present day. Storybrooke Sheriff Department. Emma Swan and Sheriff Graham discuss her uniform and her new position as deputy sheriff.
Emma: (holds up shirt) A tie? You know you don't have to dress a woman as a man to give her authority.
Graham: So you think you can get people to do what you want in that red coat?
Emma: I'm getting you to do what I want right now. (she throws the shirt down)
Graham: Well, at least wear the badge. Go on. Take it. If you really want to be a part of this community, you have to make it official. (she clips the badge to her belt, and a loud tremor shakes the office briefly. Car alarms are heard going off outside and all of the telephones begin to ring)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Entrance to the Mines. A crowd gathers around what appears to be a mine collapse. The Mayor, Regina Mills, exits her car and approaches the crowd as a police cruiser arrives.
Regina: Everyone step back please.
Ruby: Is that a crater?
Marco: No. There were tunnels, uh, old mines, something collapsed.
Regina: Be careful, step back. (Sheriff Graham and Emma approach) Sheriff, set up a police perimeter. Marco, why don't you help with the fire department? Miss Swan, this is now official town business. You're free to go.
Emma: Well, actually I work for the town now. (Regina gives Graham a look)
Graham: She's my new deputy.
Regina: They say the mayor's always last to know.
Graham: It's in my budget.
Regina: Indeed. (She gives Graham another look, then addresses Emma) Deputy, why don't you make yourself useful and help with crowd control? (speaking to crowd) People of Storybrooke, don't be alarmed. We've always known this area was honeycombed with old mining tunnels, but fear not. I'm going to undertake a project to make this area safe, to rehabilitate it to city use. We will bulldoze it, collapse it, pave it.(As she speaks, Henry and Dr. Hopper arrive)
Henry: Pave it? What if there's something down there?
Regina:(whispering) Henry, what are you doing here?
Henry: (whispering) What's down there?
Regina: Nothing. Now step back. In fact everyone please, please step back. Thank you. Let's go boys. (Regina picks up a piece of glass with a worried look and Henry notices)
Henry: (to Emma): What was that?
Regina: Henry, enough. Listen, this is a safety issue now wait in the car. (to Emma and Graham) Deputy Swan, Sheriff, cordon off the area.
Henry: (Gets out of his mother's car and motions to Archie) Hey, Archie. Over here. (both Archie and Emma approach) This requires all of Operation Cobra... both of you.
Archie: I didn't realize I was in Operation Cobra.
Henry: Of course you are, you know everything. We can't let her do this. What if there's something down there?
Emma: They're just some old tunnels.
Henry: That just happen to collapse right after you get here? You're changing things. You're weakening the Curse.
Emma: That's not what's happening.
Henry: Yes it is. Did you do anything different today? 'Cause something made this happen. (Emma touches her badge)
Regina: Henry, I told you to wait in the car. Deputy, do your job. (Archie starts walking away) Dr. Hopper a word please? (He approaches Regina) Okay, we're done with this.
Archie: Uh, excuse me?
Regina: My son. We need a new treatment plan. Everything I do he thinks is part of some horrible plot. I can't cover up a safety hazard without him thinking I'm hiding something. How am I hiding something terrible in an old mine? How is any of this logical to him?
Archie: He's got an amazing imagination.
Regina: Yes, that you let run rampant.
Archie: Well I think it would be wrong to rip away the world he's constructed. I'd rather use it to try and get--
Regina: Sometimes I think you've forgotten. You work for me. You're an employee, and I can fire you. This is my town. You will lose your office, lose your house. I can cut you down to size until you're a tiny, shrunken little creature, and this (holds up his umbrella) will be the only roof over your damn head.
Archie: What would you have me do?
Regina: You take that delusion out of my son's head, and you crush it.
SCENE: Enchanted Forest. Past. An adult Jiminy and his parents have arrived at a small market.
Myrna: Come on, Jiminy. Oh, I remember this place. Looks like it's been a good year.
Martin: Yeah, you can tell by all the fat people.
Myrna: (chuckles, then whispers) Maybe we can run the elf tonic scam here.
Jiminy: Oh can't we just... Can't we just put on a show? We make enough on ticket sales do we have to steal too? (His parents make sounds of disgust)
Martin: We don't need to, but it's nice. We steal from them and they steal from someone else.
Myrna: It's called an economy.
Martin: We're a vital part of it.
Jiminy: I want to change. I-I want to quit!
Myrna: Oh, this again.
Martin: No, you can't leave now.
Myrna: We're getting old.
Martin: It's my hip.
Myrna: My liver.
Martin: I got lumps in strange places.
Myrna: I've got burning sensations.
Martin: You'd better stay with us.
Myrna: Just until we die.
Martin: Now, be a good boy and set up. (He and Myrna walk away and thunder crashes. The scene transitions to later that day, rain is falling heavily as Jiminy sets up the wagon for the puppet show. A young boy approaches)
Boy: Puppets! Wow! What a great job you have! (Jiminy turns back to his task, looking unhappy) You don't like it?
Jiminy: No, no I don't. Same show, same fairs, every year.
Boy: Well, then why don't you do something else?
Jiminy: It's just who I am. Well, did you just come out here to watch us set up?
Boy: No, I came out here to listen to the crickets.
Jiminy: Oh, crickets. Oh, I haven't listened to the crickets in a while. Hey, you'd better get home or you're gonna catch a cold.
Boy: So will you. Here, have my umbrella. I don't live far. (He offers and Jiminy takes his umbrella and the boy beings to hurry away) I can't wait to see the show!
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Dr. Archie Hopper's office. Archie is sitting in his office when Marco enters.

Archie: Marco, what are you doing here?(Marco motions to his mouth) Oh lunch. I'm sorry, I forgot. I've got another patient. Another time?
Marco: Sure, of course. (Henry enters) Hey. Have a good session, Henry. (Marco leaves),
Henry: Are you recruiting Geppetto for Operation Cobra?
Archie: You think Marco is Geppetto?
Henry: Sure, he's Jiminy Cricket's best friend, and Marco's yours.
Archie: Henry, Henry look. We... we really need to talk about this, okay?
Henry: I know you're not convinced but I know where I can get proof.
Archie: (Henry opens up his backpack) What is this? A flashlight? And candy bars? Oh, wait. Henry. Henry you do not want to go down there.
Henry: Emma's here, and stuff's happening. I have to look at it.
Archie: Henry, Henry. Stop. Stop, there is no proof. Look all of this, all of this is a delusion. Do you know what a delusion is?
Henry: I... I think so.
Archie: It's something that's not real. And... and not healthy. And... and I thought you'd outgrow this but Henry, you know... know it's turned into a psychosis. Do you know what a psychosis is? That's... that's when you can no longer tell what's real and if that continues, then... then I have to lock you away. Henry, look this has to stop for your own good. You gotta wake up. This nonsense must end (Henry gets up and leaves).
SCENE. Storybrooke. Present day. Storybrooke General Hospital. Mary Margaret Blanchard is playing hangman with David Nolan, which currently reads _AR_ _AR_AR_ _.
Mary Margaret: I don't know. "M"?
David: Two of them. (He writes a letter "m" on the first space and another on the fifth.) Get it yet?
Mary Margaret: Yes, and I'm completely mortified. I almost hanged on my own name.
David: Don't worry, I would never have let you hang. I would've added toes and a hat. Maybe a horse.
Mary Margaret: Was this a game you played a lot before?
David: I don't know.
Mary Margaret: It'll come back. They're sending you home in a week. They have to think you're progressing, don't they?
Mary Margaret: Well, you're making new memories just fine.
David: Maybe I'll like these better.
Mary Margaret: (Smiles, touched.) Okay, play again? (Kathryn Nolan enters, carrying a box of photos.)
Kathryn: Can I guess, too?
Mary Margaret: (Stuttering nervously.) Mrs. Nolan. Oh, it's noon already. I didn't realize. I should go. (She exits.)
Kathryn: Good day, Miss Blanchard. (To David.) Honey, I brought more pictures. Maybe they'll jog something. (David watches Mary Margaret leave as Kathryn takes out a picture of a dog.) It's our old dog, Ajax. Remember?
David: Yeah, yeah. Ajax.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. The Blanchard loft. Mary Margaret is talking with Emma as they make s'mores.
Mary Margaret: I am the worst person in the world.
Emma: Really? In the whole world?
Mary Margaret: If Kathryn was horrible, it would be easier, but she's so nice.
Emma: And what exactly would be easier?
Mary Margaret: Nothing.
Emma: Nothing's a good idea. You're smart. You know not to get involved with a married guy. It's not worth the heartache. Trust me. (They hear a knock at the door.) I'll get it. (Upon opening it, she sees Henry, sobbing.) Kid, what happened? Come in.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Dr. Hopper's Office. Archie is sitting with Pongo when he hears pounding at the door.
Emma: (Off screen, on the other side of the door. She is angry.) Archie! Archie! (She enters.) What did you do? You told me not to take the fantasy away. You told me it would devastate him.
Archie: When a course of therapy stops working, you adjust it.
Emma: Is it her? Did she threaten you? What could be strong enough to drown out your own conscience?
Archie: I do not need to defend my professional decisions to you, okay? (Emma's cell phone begins to ring. She answers it.)
Emma: Hello, Madame Mayor. Nice work.
Regina: (Through the phone.) You with him?
Emma: Yes, I'm with Dr. Hopper, and guess what? You left your fingerprints all over him when you-
Regina: (Interrupting.) Not him. Henry. Is he with you?
Emma: I dropped Henry off at your office an hour ago.
Regina: Well, he's not here.
Emma: (Now shocked.) I don't know where he is.
Archie. (Sighs.) I do.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Henry is standing in front of the mines where the tunnel collapse occurred earlier, and enters.
SCENE: Enchanted Forest. Past. The Dark castle. Rumplestiltskin is at his spinning wheel, spinning straw into gold when Jiminy enters, carrying a small bag.
Rumplestiltskin: (Chuckles.) Thank you very much. And the names? To whom did these treasures belong? (Jiminy takes out a small piece of parchment and places it on top of the bag. Rumplestiltskin hands him some of the gold he has just spun.) Gold thread, for your thievery. Thank you, you can go. (Jiminy begins to exit.) But you want something else, don't you? (As he continues speaking, he pours a potion on another gold thread, melting it and putting it into a little bottle.) Something with... magic?
Jiminy: Every year, I'm stuck in that damn wagon. I wanna be free. I wanna be someone else. But something keeps holding me back.
Rumplestiltskin: Something or someone?
Jiminy: It's my parents.
Rumplestiltskin: Then I have exactly what you need. (Offers Jiminy the potion he has just created.) This will set you free. Pour it, sprinkle it, put it in their curds and whey. Anything will work. (Jiminy reaches for the bottle, only for Rumplestiltskin to grab it back.) Ah! But you have nothing more to give to me. (He chuckles.) Tell you what—after the potion has... done its work, leave them where they are and I'll come collect them. It'll be my fee!
Jiminy: What will become of them?
Rumplestiltskin: Worry you not, they'll be in safe hands. And you'll be free. (He hands Jiminy the potion and Jiminy exits.)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. In front of the mines. Archie and Emma are looking for Henry.
Emma: Henry! Henry!
Archie: Henry! (Pongo enters and runs to the entrance into the mines, sniffing.)What you got there, Pongo?
Emma: I don't think he's here.
Archie: I think he is. (He picks up an Apollo Bar.) Candy bar. He had these with him.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Inside the mines. Henry, flashlight in hand, explores the area when he sees a mysterious shard of glass among the stones. He picks it up and examines it when all of a sudden, he hears the gravel rustling. He looks up to see an avalanche of rocks. He runs.

Archie: Henry! It's not safe! (Archie climbs into the collapsing mine to find Henry.)
Emma: Archie?! Henry!
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present day. Inside the mines. Archie lights a match, picks up his lucky umbrella, and proceeds to look for Henry.)
Archie: Henry? Henry?
Henry: (suddenly comes out with the flashlight shining on Archie) Archie! You're here to help me!
Archie: No, I... Listen, we gotta get out of here.
Henry: So you're still against me.
Archie: Henry, there's no time for that. Come on, Henry, come on!
Henry: (backing) You don't believe me? You'll see. You'll see. (Henry runs away from Archie.
Archie: Henry! Henry, come back! (turns to look towards the exit then turns back and chases after Henry) Hey!
SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Past. Jiminy, Martin and Myrna walking on the way to a house to cheat people for money.
(Jiminy stops at the door and turn to his parents.)
Jiminy: Look, can't we skip this tonight? We don't need the money!
Myrna: Everything isn't about money, Jiminy. It's about the principle.
Martin: (using a trick to produce a small bottle of liquid appears in his hand) A commitment to excellence.
Myrna: Excellence... at stealing money.
Martin: Now and take the "elf tonic", Jiminy.
(Jiminy takes the bottle while Martin and Myra laugh together. Myrna knocks and a young couple, Stephen and Donna, answer the door.)
Myrna: Oh! Such beautiful young people.
Jiminy: Pardon me. Do you have a place at your hearth for an honest man and his (pauses and looks to his parents then turns back to the couple) elderly parents?
Stephen: Of course.
Stephen: Come in.
Donna: I'll heat up some broth.
Myrna: (entering the house) Oh, we love broth.
Martin: Oh, what a beautiful jome!
Myrna: Your cobbles are so even!
(They continue chatting as all of them enter the house.)
SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Past. Inside the house, Donna hands Jiminy a bowl of broth.
Jiminy: Thank you for your kindness.
Myrna: (to Martin)I just can't get it out of my mind, that family.
Martin: Terrible way to go.
Donna: (sitting down at the table) What? What happened?
Martin and Myrna: (looks at each other then to the couple) Plague.
(Donna gasps and turns to Stephen.)
Myrna: The next town over, we just passed through.
Donna: The plague?!
Myrna: Well, a plague, certainly.
Stephen: Is it coming here? Are you okay?
Martin: Oh, us, no, we are immune.
Myrna: We have the elf tonic.
Martin: Made by elves, from elves.
Myrna: Four out of five court physicians recommend it.
Martin: Fifth one died before he could try it. (laughs)
Myrna: Well, you have it, right? Smart folks like you.
Donna: We've never heard of it.
Myrna: Oh no.
Martin: Oh dear god.
Jiminy: Oh no, you're going to die. You're going to die.
Myrna: Oh, I wish we had extra.
Martin: We don't have extra.
Jiminy: There is no extra.
Donna: We could pay you.
Martin: We have a tiny bottle.
Myrna: But we need that for ourselves.
Stephen: What can we give you?
Donna: Surely there must be something here you would want.
Myrna: I'm sure we can come up with something

Stephen: (takes the bottle) Thank you.
Donna: Thank you.
(Jiminy leaves the house.)
SCENE: The Enchanted Foresst. Past. Besides their wagon, Martin and Myrna puts the bags of goods onto it.
Jiminy: Hey, those are good people. They would never hurt us like that.
Myrna: That's where they went wrong.
Martin: It's better to be the kind of people that take.
Myrna: Instead of those that get taken from.
Jiminy: (takes out the bottle of potion from Rumplestilskin) I'm sorry. You've given me no other choice.
(Jiminy throws the potion to his parents but nothing happens)
Myrna: How frail do you think we are, son?
Martin: Rainwater won't hurt us.
(Jiminy is shocked and looks at the bottle)
Martin: I'm pretty good at a sleight of hand, Jiminy.
Jiminy: You switched them? (looks back to the house) So this is the elf tonic.
Martin: Oh my! We must have given whatever you had to that family.
Myrna: Oh, hope it wasn't dangerous.
(Jiminy runs back into the house)
SCENE: The Enchanted Forest. Past. Inside the house, Jiminy finds the bottle of poison on the ground used already at the door
(Jiminy picks up the bottle and looks behind the door. On the bed sit two puppet dolls that looks like Stephen and Donna. Jiminy is horrified and falls onto the chair. Martin and Maryn enter and see the puppets.)
Martin: Ohh, look at that.
Myrna: New puppets for the act.
(Suddenly, the boy who has given him the umbrella earlier that day enters the house.)
Boy: (looks at Martin and Myrna) Who are you?

SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Inside the mines, Archie is searching for Henry.
Archie: Henry? Henry? Henry! Henry! (sees a light in front and finds Henry shining the flashlight at a gap on the ground) Henry! You gotta slow.
Henry: There's something shiny down there.
Archie: Henry, this is seriously dangerous. We gotta get out of here.
Henry: It could be something.
Archie: (very anxious) Look, I'm frightened for you, Henry.
Henry: Because you think that I'm crazy?
Archie: No! No, because we are trapped underground in an abandoned mine, Henry, and there is no way out.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Outside at the entrance of the mine, Pongo barks. Regina, Emma, Graham, Marco, and Ruby gather around as workers try to open the entrance.
Marco: Archie is smart. He'll keep the boy safe until we get to that.
(the ground shakes)
Marco: Watch out!
Regina: (runs towards Emma) Stop! Stop! You're making it worse.
Emma: I am trying to save him. You know what, he wouldn't have gone in the first place, don't you? Because you made him feel like he had something to prove!
Regina: And why does he think he has anything to prove? Who's encouraging him?
Emma: Do not put this on me.
Regina: Oh please, lecture me until the oxygen has run out. (turns and walks away)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Inside the mines.

Regina: We need to find someway to punch through the ground. We need something big.
Emma: Like what?

Mary Margaret: (to the other staff) Have a good day.
David: Hey, where're you going?
Mary Margaret: Home. I'm done for the day. Shouldn't you be resting?
David: Actually, Dr. Whale asks me to start physical therapy. I'm supposed to walk thirty minutes a day on a treadmill outside with an escort. But they are kind of short on personnel because of that thing that happened in the mine.
Mary Margaret: Oh.
David: So... Maybe there is a volunteer willing to help?
(They smile at each other)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Besides a lake, David and Mary Margaret is walking.
David: I try to remember this place. It's like, it's like I woke up on some strange land.
Mary Margaret: Is there anything coming back? (pauses for a while) What about when you're with her? You remember your dog.
David: Yeah, I lied.
Mary Margaret: You did?
David: She's so lovely. I didn't want to disappoint her. But none of it feels right. A dog named Ajax? Who'd name a dog that?
(Mary Margaret smiles)
David: None of it make sense. None of it, none of it feels real.
Mary Margaret: That sounds so lonely.
Dvid: Actually, one thing does feel real, you.
Mary Margaret: What?
David: I know it's crazy, but I swear, you're the only thing in this whole place that feels, that feels right.
(Mary Margaret was happy and start getting closer to David)
David: (suddenly) Kathryn.
Mary Margaret: (lowers her head) Right.
David: (walks passes Mary Margaret) Kathryn.
(Kathryn arrives, Mary Margaret also turns to her.)
David: You're here.
Kathryn: I know it's outside of visiting hours. But I needed to see you. (hands a basket to David) I made some cranberry muffins. They used to be your favorite.

(Mary Margaret turns back then smiles and continues walking away)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Outside at the entrance, Regina runs to the workers.
Regina: What was that? What the hell was that? You said you could do this.
Emma: (tries to cool her down) Madame Mayor.
Regina: They could have killed my son.
Emma: I know. But this isn't helping.
Marco: If we knew exactly where they were, we could drill down to them.
(Pongo's barking catches Emma's attention and she runs towards the fire truck it is in)
Marco: Maybe, maybe make something to bring them back up.
Graham: A driller.
Regina: What do you think we...
(Emma opens the fire truck's door and let Pongo out)
Emma: Come on buddy. (to Regina, Graham and Marco) It's Archie's dog.
(Pongo sniifs the ground)
Emma: He's found something. Look, this is where they must be. What is it?
(Graham and Marco removes a metal covering and a hole blocked grate bars is shown)
Emma: What is that?
Graham: It's an air shaft.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Inside the elevator of the mines.
Henry: I'm really, really, really sorry.
Archie: It's alright.
Henry: I just wanted to find proof.
Archie: No, it's really alright, Henry. You know, I'm sorry too. Okay, I don't think you're crazy. I just, I just say to you that you got a very strong mother, who's got a clear idea of a path that she wants you to be on. When you step off that, she, she is scared. You know, it's natural. But, it's also natural for you to be able to be free, to think the things that you want to think. So, anyway, I didn't mean those things I just said to you. I never should have said them.
Henry: Alright, why did you?
Archie: I guess I'm still not a right person. I'm not the man I wanna be.
(the elevator shakes)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Outside at air shaft, the workers remove the metal grate
Emma: Alright, we got it.
(Emma, Regina and Graham look down to the deep shaft)
Regina: So, what's next?
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Inside the elevator of the mines.
Henry: Ithink you can be him. I think you can be a good person. I mean, you're Jiminy Cricket.
Archie: Henry, Henry, Jiminy Cricket was a, was a cricket, okay? It was a conscience, and, and I hardly think that's me.
Henry: But before he was that, he was a guy, who took a long time to figure out the right thing to do.
Archie: (pauses for a while) He kinda sounds like me.
Henry: Now it's harder for you, because of the curse, to care for the voice inside of you, to be who you wanna be.
(the elevator shakes again)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Outside at air shaft.
Marco: We need to lower someone straight down, or the line would collapse with the sides of the shaft.
Grahan: I've got the harness.
Regina: Lower me down.
Emma: Oh, no way. I'm going.
Regina: He's my son.
Emma: He's my son too. You've been sitting behind your desk for ten years. I can do this.
Regina: Just bring him to me.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Inside the elevator of the mines, a few stones drop to the elevator.
Archie: Hey, can I ask you again?
Henry: Of course.
Archie: Why do you think it's so important that your, your fairytale theory is true?
Henry: I don't know,
