In [[Emma Swan]]'s [[Swan House|house]] in present-day [[Storybrooke]], Emma and [[Hook]] enjoy a moment alone, kissing on the couch. Emma asks where [[Henry Mills|Henry]] is, and Hook responds that he's with [[Regina Mills|Regina]]. Emma interrupts again, asking about her parents, and Hook assures her they won't be walking in. Emma asks about her [[Emma's Red Leather Jackets|leather jacket]], which she is wearing, and Hook assures it's fine, he likes the jacket. A glass on the nearby coffee table trembles, and the couple are interrupted again by it. They jump up, realizing the entire house is shaking. Outside, the pair gaze skyward as a flying ship passes overhead.
 
 
In a field near the forest, Emma, Hook, Henry, Regina, [[David Nolan]], [[Mary Margaret Blanchard]], and many townspeople watch the ship flying overhead. David asks what it is, and [[Dr. Jekyll]] replies that it is a dirigible from the [[Land of Untold Stories]]. Mary Margaret asks what it's doing in their town, and [[Mr. Hyde]] reveals himself, replying that it's ''his'' town. Mary Margaret informs him that Storybrooke is not his town, and Mr. Hyde replies that the [[Mr. Gold|Dark One]] gave it to him. He begins to leave, telling the group he must prepare for his friends' arrival. Emma whispers to Regina, and the two blast Mr. Hyde with their combine magic. Mr. Hyde groans, then begins to laugh, deflecting their magic. He gives the group a warning; "Nothing more dangerous than an untold story and the people who don't want them told." The dirigible crashes in the forest nearby.
 
 
At the crash site, Emma explores the crashed ship, reporting that no one is inside. David ponders where they could be, and Mary Margaret suggests they're in the forest, and, judging by their steps, they ran. She wonders what Mr. Hyde would want with them. Dr. Jekyll replies that, depending on who Mr. Hyde brought, their "stories" playing out could be "chaos". He reminds the group of the [[Orderly]]'s [[Batons|baton]] they used to subdue Mr. Hyde in the Land of Untold Stories, and informs them that the same technology made the dirigible. He suggests that he can scavenge the wreckage to make a similar weapon. As the group begins examining the wreckage, David throws a metal piece aside, striking another object with a clang. Emma turns, and has a brief vision of herself in a sword fight with an unknown assailant Her hand trembles violently. Mary Margaret and Hook notice that she is distressed, and ask her what's wrong. Emma replies, "Nothing", and walks away, trying to contain her trembling.
 
 
Elsewhere, Mr. Gold walks through a forest, opening a map, recalling an earlier conversation with Mr. Hyde. In exchange for Storybrooke, Mr. Hyde gives him instructions for waking [[Belle]] from her [[Sleeping Curse]]. Mr. Hyde instructs him to visit the [[List of Minor Locations|Temple of Morpheus|Temple of Morpheus]], where he will find sands that will allow him to enter Belle's dreams. Mr. Gold sees the temple in the distance, and teleports himself there. He appears inside, next to a stone bier. He opens [[Pandora's Box]], placing Belle on the bier. He pours sand from a nearby urn into his hand, and waves it over Belle and himself. He is transported to a sunny forest, where a young man introduces himself as [[Morpheus]], and asks if Mr. Gold would like to wake Belle up.

Goofs

  • One of the businesses across the street from the pawnshop is called Jolene's Arts & Crafts.[19] However, when the dirigible is flying over Storybrooke, the real business name, Crafts 'n More,[20] can be seen on the building. When Belle walks by the pawnshop at the end of the episode, the name is back to normal.
  • When Mary Margaret and David are in the forest, looking for the visitors from the Land of Untold Stories, Mary Margaret receives a phone call. She says to David, "That was from Emma and Hook. No sign of Hyde or Hyde's friends on the north side." The problem is, Hyde had already been captured earlier that day, and Mary Margaret, David, Emma and Hook were all there when it happened. They wouldn't look for him.
