Mary Margaret is rushing to get ready for school and she is late. She was supposed to get their early to help the kids for the science fair. Mary Margaret rushes out the door and heads to the restaurant and sits down to read a book and David comes in. He sees Mary Margaret and says hello to her.

Mary Margaret is shopping at the pharmacy and she bumps into David’s wife Katherine and drops everything. Katherine who she bumps into drops a pregnancy kit and Regina sees it and tells Mary Margaret that she trusts she will be discreet – their lives are their own business not hers.
In the fairytale there is a feast going on. King Midas sent a crown. The crown could feed the whole kingdom. Prince James’ father tells Prince James he knows he has agreed to marry Abigail but he knows his heart is not there. Prince James tells him at least he is doing what he wants. His father tells him to get Snow out of his head because nothing is stopping his wedding to Abigail. Prince writes a note to Snow White and sends it by carrier pigeon to her.

However, she must find it’s family or it will be alone. David is at the vet and tells Mary Margaret there is a storm coming and she needs to be careful. Mary wants to return the doe to its flock.
Regina goes to Emma and she tells her there is a new person in town and she wants her to find something out about him and what he wants. She tells Regina there is no law against coming to Storybrooke. Regina tells Emma she will do it because he was talking to Henry in front of her house and they both care about the boy. Emma agrees to check into him.
Snow White gets the message from Prince James telling her that he is always thinking of her but he is getting married. He asks her to come to him and show him they can be happy. If she does not come he will go through with the marriage.

Snow White is headed to the castle in disguise and brings a basket of flowers and tells the guard they are from King Midas for Prince James’ wedding. She gets into the palace and sees Prince James and a guard grabs her and takes her to the dungeon and tells her the King will decide her fate as he takes the note that Prince James sent to her.
Snow tries to scale the walls of the prison but falls down. She hears whistling and sees a dwarf, Grumpy, and tells her he has tried it all and it is useless. The dwarf introduces himself as Grumpy and Snow tells him there is someone out there she loves and she will not give up.
He tells her he got swindled after trading all his wages for a stolen diamond and got trapped and there is not way out. A voice says ‘I know a way out’ and another dwarf Stealthy comes to help him. Snow wishes him luck and he comes back to let Snow out as well.
Mary Margaret is in the forest and she hears a noise and she thinks it is the dove’s flock she walks to the edge of a ledge and slips down.
Snow White grabs onto a root as she hangs over the ravine. She hears a voice and its David! He says give me your hand and he pulls her up. He asks her if she really thought that he would leave her alone out in the woods. She leaves and David asks where she is going, she runs with the dove tells Dave she has to return it to the flock – the girl is obsessed! David tells her it is not safe the storm is getting worse and they have to go.
Snow and the Dwarfs separate – the dwarfs head out of the castle and the King sees him and they shoot Stealthy. The King asks where the girl is and when Grumpy won’t answer – says what girl? – they go to kill him and Snow says ‘Looking for me’ The King tells the dwarf to leave and he tells Snow White they have to talk. The storm is getting really bad with wind and rain and Mary Margaret, David and the dove come to an empty house. David breaks in.
David gets a fire on and he wants to get Mary Margaret dry. Mary Margaret tells David she still has feelings for him and she has been stalking him. But she does not know why she does it because every time she sees him she remembers he chose Katherine and not her. Being around him is too painful. David tells Mary Margaret the reason he has been getting coffee every morning at the same time is to see her. They go to kiss and at the last moment Mary Margaret pulls back. Mary Margaret tells him she knows about Katherine and he asks what about Katherine. Mary Margaret tells David she thinks she is pregnant.
Emma comes into the café and sees the stranger and tells him they have to talk because he is suspicious. She asks why he was outside Henry’s house and talking to him. He tells Emma his bike broke down. She asks him what is in his box and he asks if it is illegal to carry a box. He tells Emma that he is going to make her wait. He is going to carry it around for ages making her guess what could possibly be in the box. However, he tells her if she lets him buy her a drink he will tell her right now.
He opens the box and it is a typewriter and he tells her he is a writer and he finds Storybrooke provides him with inspiration. She asks him if he was every here before and he tells her he never said that and he gets up and leaves.
David tells Mary Margaret he did not know Katherine was pregnant and they were not trying. All of a sudden Mary Margaret hears the rain has stopped and she tells David she has to get the dove out. She runs out and finds the flock did not leave and she throws the dove up to join her flock.
David takes Mary Margaret’s hand but she tells him it is too painful. He tells her it does not have to be, David tells Mary Margaret they do not know if Katherine is pregnant. He tells her he has two conflicting lives – memories of Katherine and real feelings for Mary Margaret. Mary Margaret tells David they have to forget each other.
The King accuses Snow White of poisoning Prince James heart and destroying everything. The King tells Snow that she has to go see Prince James and tell him that she does not love him. She tells Snow that if she does not do it he will kill Prince James because he is not his real son. King will make it look like an assassination and turn the Prince into a Martyr, something which King Midas will appreciate and remain their patron.
Snow goes to see Prince James – he is happy she came and embraces her. Snow tells James that ‘us’ cannot happen. He tells her of course they can. Snow tells James she does not love him – she apologizes. She tells him to go live his life without her, because there is no place for her. Snow tells James to go find someone who can love him the way she never has and never will. She leaves.
David is with Katherine and asks if there is anything he wants to tell her. She tells him since he came home ‘he is here, but not here.’ She tells him she wants a family and she wants children. She tells him she thought she was pregnant, but she is not pregnant and she thinks that is for the best. She asks him if they can see Dr. Hopper and give them the best chance. David tells her he knows they should be in love and he wants to make it work. She tells him it is 7:10 and if he wants coffee before work he should leave. He tells her no, let’s have breakfast before I leave.
Snow White is walking with the dwarfs and Grumpy asks if she is okay and she says no. He asks if she found him and she says, no – she lost him. She asks him where they are going and the dwarfs tell her they are taking her home – everyone lost someone today. They are now seven instead of eight. Snow goes to take the cure that Rumpelstiltskin gave her and Grumpy stops her and she tells him she wants the pain to go. He tells her the pain is who he is – it makes him Grumpy – and convinces her to put the ‘cure’ away- at least for now.
Emma and Mary Margaret are sitting at the table and Mary Margaret looks at the clock it is 7:15 and she is not going to meet David.
Prince James is on his horse and is calling for Snow White. Little Red Riding Hood tells Prince James that she is gone – she never came back after she went to seek him out. Prince James tells Riding Hood he will never stop looking for her.
The dwarfs come back and tell Snow White the Wedding has been cancelled and Prince James is not getting married – yeah!! But Snow White says WHO? – she has drank Rumpelstiltskin ‘cure.’
David comes into the café at 7:45 and sees Mary Margaret and then runs out. Mary Margaret runs after him and says it is 7:45 you are not suppose to be here. They both tried to avoid each other.
