Tonight’s episode of Once Upon A Time In Wonderland opens with Alice and Will sneaking through the woods. They are following guards that are searching for Cyrus. Alice reveals that she knows where Cyrus is headed, “to the only place that he knows he is safe.”

Cyrus is having some difficulty getting there though. He is snagged in an animal trap, and one of the Queen’s guards is close to him.

Meanwhile, the Queen has some problems of her own. One of her guards has betrayed her and handed over a bag of hers to Jafar. The Queen figures out what he gave to Jafar, and she is not happy about it.

Alice and Will are on their way to Cyrus’s “safe place.” She wants to stop at Rabbit’s house on the way. She needs Rabbit to help them get to another world after they rescue Cyrus, they will be needing a quick getaway.

Flashback: Genie is carrying Alice into Rabbit’s house, she has been hurt, and she needs Rabbit to save her. Rabbbit has a family, a wife, and babies sleeping in his house.

Present: The Queen has found Cyrus hanging from the animal snare, and cuts him loose. She is taking him “back to his bottle.”

Slight problem though, Jafar has Cyrus’s bottle. That is what the Queen’s guard smuggled out of the castle and gave to him. Jafar realizes he has been duped though, the bottle that the guard gave to him is a fake.

Alice and Will head to Rabbit’s house. Alice confides in Rabbit that she needs his help “one last time.” Rabbit can’t help Alice escape though, the Queen has his wife and his children, if he helps them leave Wonderland then the Queen will kill his family. Alice decides to help Rabbit find his family, and rescue them from the Queen. Will thinks he knows where Rabbit’s family may be hidden.

The Queen taken Cyrus to an abandoned carriage in the woods. It’s where she has stashed the Genie’s real bottle.

Flashback: Will is waiting outside Rabbit’s house to see if he can save Alice. Rabbit emerges from his house and tells him that “Alice will be fine.” Rabbit wants Cyrus to “let Alice go” because being with him is putting her in danger.

Jafar is at the castle, and he is not happy. He wants the real Genie’s bottle. He finds a box with his name on it, he opens it and finds the head of the guard that helped him betray the Queen. Jafar steals a piece of the Queen’s hair out of her hair-brush, and then destroys the Queen’s castle.

Flashback: Cyrus is visiting Caterpillar. He wants to know how to make people disappear, if they never want to be found. He gives Caterpillar a gift, it’s called a “lost and found,” it’s a tool that you can use to find anything you have lost.

Present: Will takes Rabbit and Alice to the old shack he used to live in with the Queen before she became the Queen. (Coincidentally it is the same shack she just returned to and got the Genie’s bottle from). Will has found Rabbit’s family in the shack! Rabbit sends his family to a safe place, and then leaves with Will and Alice to help them.

Meanwhile, Cyrus is leading the Queen to the “safe place,” he has told her that Alice will be there.

Jafar is using the Queen’s strand of hair to do a magic spell. He has sent a creepy magical cloud to “find the Red Queen and kill her.”

Flashback: Cyrus is concerned that Alice will never be safe as long as they are together. He has realized that he can’t protect her. Alice doesn’t want him to leave her. He is showing her the “safe place,” that Caterpillar helped him create. It is invisible from the outside, and they only know it exists.

Present: Will and Alice are almost to the “safe place.” Will is annoyed that Alice has had this invisible house this entire time, and they have been sleeping in the woods. Alice is distraught, she thought Cyrus would be here by now. Alice looks out the window, and sees Cyrus. She runs out to greet her. Unfortunately, he brought the Queen with him. Cyrus announces that the Queen is going to help them.

Alice is shocked, why would the Queen help them? The Queen reveals that she is no longer working for Jafar. Will doesn’t believe her, he thinks she is up to something. She plans on leaving with Wonderland with them. The Red Queen confesses that she is still in love with Will, and she wants him back. Will doesn’t buy it, he replies “you’ll never have me.” Meanwhile, the black cloud that Jafar sent out for The Queen is closing in on them.

The Queen begs Rabbit to start digging. Cyrus vouches for the Queen, and tells them she is telling the truth. Rabbit starts digging, but he is too late. A lightning bolt shocks Will and he drops. Moments later, Alice drops. The Queen realizes that she used her wish to protect all of them from Jafar. Cyrus wants her to use her last wish to save herself, she doesn’t want to use it because when it is used up he will be trapped back in his bottle. Will has one wish left, he uses it to “end Alice’s suffering.” Alice lives, and Cyrus’s shackles are removed. He is no longer the genie and he doesn’t have to return to the bottle. There is one slight catch, since Will used the last wish, he is now trapped in the bottle. He has taken Cyrus’s place in the genie bottle. The Queen, Rabbit, Alice, and Cyrus are devastated, and the bottle is gone.
