On last week’s show Prince Charming ran into the Town Hall front lawn desperately searching for Mother Superior (Blue Fairy), who was actually one of the fairies who helped send Emma through to Storybrooke via the magical tree. Prince Charming asked if there might be another one on the other side; she said it’s possible, but that she doesn’t know, and, without any fairy dust to guide them, there’s was no way of knowing. The town was also in an uproar, and they looked at Prince Charming to be the leader, a man brave and smart enough to save them from this horrible, magical ordeal . . . and maybe even get everyone back home. To their real homes!
