Tonight’s episode of Once Upon A Time In Wonderland begins with Cyrus paying Caterpillar a visit, and asking for his Lost and Found compass back. Meanwhile a shrunken Alice sneaks behind Caterpillar and retrieves the compass while he gives Cyrus the run around.

Jafar is in the palace with the three genie bottles, starting the spell. The Jabberwocky lies on a sofa watching him. The Red Queen is in the basement in a hanging cage next to Jafar’s Dad, while the tower shakes from Jafar’s magic spell. The Red Queen has a flashback of when she first arrived to the palace, and the Queen offered to teach her how to do magic.

Alice and Cyrus are trying to use the compass to track down Cyrus’s Mom. Tweedle arrives and warns Alice and Cyrus on behalf of Red Queen that she used her three wishes and Jafar is about to do the spell. Cyrus pockets the compass and tells Tweedle to lead them to the palace. Tweedle warns that the Jabberwocky has been released, but Cyrus isn’t fazed.

Jafar is having a problem doing the spell, it’s not working. He summons Will from his bottle and asks him how he is fighting the spell. Will appears to be immune to it. The Jabberwocky decides to “get inside” Will’s head and see how he is fighting the spell. The Jabberwocky reveals that she can’t read Will, and Jafar comes to the conclusion that Anastasia put a “protection spell” on him.

Alice and Cyrus arrive at the tower and Anastasia is shocked to see them, but they run into the shadows and hide when Jafar and the Jabberwocky arrive to see Anastasia. She denies to Jafar that she has anything to do with Will’s protection spell. The Jabberwocky reveals to Jafar the reason she can’t read Will is because he doesn’t have a heart, read Alice and Cyrus’s minds, and she knows that they are somewhere in the dungeon.

Alice and Cyrus escape from the dungeon through the secret passages. Jafar threatens to slice Anastasia’s throat if Will doesn’t tell him where his heart is. Will caves and tells Jafar where it is located.

Meanwhile Alice and Cyrus are already en route to Will’s heart, they know if they can get to it before Jafar then he won’t be able to perform the spell. There is a slight predicament though, his heart is not in Wonderland.

Alice and Cyrus head to Rabbit’s house and tell him they need him to dig a hole to Storybrooke, that is where Will’s heart is. They arrive in Storybrooke and Rabbit leads Alice and Cyrus to Will’s house.

Will and Anastasia are stuck in the dungeon, Will reveals that he had his heart taken out because she had broken it and it was too painful. The reason Anastasia never met Will at the wagon and chose to marry the King instead is because The Queen told her that Will wasn’t waiting for her, and it was already too late. Anastasia reveals that she wishes they had never come to Wonderland and never learned about magic.

Meanwhile in Storybrooke Alice and Cyrus find Will’s heart hidden in the wall of his apartment. They return to Wonderland with the heart and are trying to determine where they can hide it that Jafar won’t find it. Jafar appears, and uses his staff to overpower them and steal Will’s heart. He tries to kill Cyrus with his snake staff, but something strange happens and Cyrus is immune to it. (Jafar confined Cyrus’s Mom to the snake staff years ago, which is how she is still alive.) His own staff throws Jafar on the ground and Cyrus picks it up. In a strange turn of events Jafar can’t use his magic staff anymore, he grabs Will’s heart and runs off into the woods, leaving the snake staff with Cyrus and Alice.

Alice and Cyrus use the Lost and Found compass to put two and two together and realize that his Mom is trapped inside of the snake staff. Now, they just need to figure out how to free her from Jafar’s staff.

In the dungeon Anastasia apologizes to Will for everything she put him through. She knows he will never love her again, but asks if he will ever forgive her. Will tells her “anything is possible in Wonderland.” She hopes Will gets his heart back because he deserves to feel love, even if it isn’t for her. Jabberwocky and Jafar interrupt them, and barge into the dungeon. Jafar slams Will’s heart back into his chest. Once he has his heart back in his chest, he gets up off the ground and kisses Anastasia. Jafar pulls Will out of the dungeon and kills Anastasia right in before his eyes.
