#OnceUponATime starts with Snow waking in the woods and the Evil Queen is there. She says Snow is peaceful when she seeps. EQ reminds her of when Snow got a little pony for her 15th birthday and says it bowed its head to her like it was trained.
EQ says Snow was so delighted when that tiny horse bowed to her. She says Snow said it was her perfect day and says her dad spoiled her. EQ says she wants what’s coming to her – Snow’s heart in her hand. The EQ says she’ll take the half heart that David has too.
Snow says there’s a protection spell on them so she can’t take them. EQ says she’ll hand them over willingly and hands her something. She tells her she has 12 hours to figure it out and threatens the whole town before she puffs away. It’s a little vial of something.
EQ comes back to Zelena’s house happily and says she looks pretty with Robin. EQ says it’s a perfect day and says she’s getting revenge on Snow and Charming. Zelena asks if the Dark One is helping her. EQ says yes, it was productive.
EQ says she handed him the shears of destiny and Zelena implies there’s something there but the EQ says they’re just old friends. EQ says she has tons to do until Snow’s last breath. In the past, Snow tried to sell a piece of jewelry in a camp.
A man offers her a paltry sum. She runs off with the money. David’s mother staggered out of the house asking about the lost lamb. He says it died in the night. His mother frets and David reassures her and says his god Willoughby is a good tracker.
Snow flees and Charming worries
His mom talks about leaving the failing farm. Snow goes to talk to the Blue Fairy in the woods and complains that she was taken advantage of by the man. She was followed and a man throws an ax at her. Blue helps and Snow fights the man. They scare him off.
Snow says the woodcutter is a bounty hunter. Snow says she has to go and says she’s a princess without a kingdom and has sold everything she had and has enough to buy passage on a boat out of the kingdom. Charming packs a bag to go and sell their farm.
His mother thanks him. Now, David, Regina and Snow talk about the EQs threat. Emma’s hand is twitching worse than ever. Regina thinks she knows what this is and she pours a drop onto a nearby plant. The leaves all fall off. Regina says it’s water from the river of lost souls.
Road to ruin
Regina says Gold must have brought it back from the underworld. Regina says it can destroy the whole town if Snow and David don’t hand over their hearts. Snow tells David this could lead to Emma’s vision and her death. David says don’t give up.
Snow worries they can’t defeat this destiny. She says the EQ finally has them. In the past, Charming’s dog brings him a cup he found. Willoughby runs off and Charming chases him. He leads him to a tinker’s cart in the woods. The man creeps up behind him.
The man says he thought he lost that cup. Charming tosses him the cup. The man pets the dog and talks about brigands on the road. He says he’s heading the same way and they agree to travel together. The man is a bounty hunter and we see chains in his cart but David does not.
Hearts on the line
Blue tells Snow that the people love her but Snow won’t be dissuaded from leaving the forest. Now, a group gets together and talks about the lost souls water. Belle says he’s not acting like the man he should be and says she checked her books but found nothing of help.
Blue shows up and says David called. Blue says she has no way to counteract the water either. Blue says maybe they can imprison the EQ. She says there’s a rare sapling and thinks it might be lost in Storybrooke. Blue says a spell could point the way.
She says Gold, the EQ or Zelena could spot it too. Regina says she thinks there’s more to the EQ and Gold than just evil and admits there was chemistry there. She says nothing happened but they might use it to their advantage. She writes a note for Zelena to meet her at the shop and signs it EQ.
Gold and Evil Queen sitting in a tree…
Regina watches and smiles. Zelena heads into Gold’s shop and hears a noise. She finds Gold and the Queen kissing in the back. Zelena comes in and calls her a liar. She’s furious. Zelena is turning green when the EQ stops her.
EQ says she lied so she wouldn’t be jealous. Z says she’d never be jealous of her and EQ points out her neck turning green. Zelena mocks her claims of sisterhood. Gold tells her to calm down and sees the note. EQ looks at the note and says she didn’t write it.
Gold says Regina wrote it. Gold says they’re being played. Blue works a spell to find the sapling and shows them the way to go. David says Regina and Snow will go with him. They agree to trap her into it and put her in the vault.
Back in the EF, the bounty hunter and David take a break from the road. The guy offers him something to drink and then realizes he’s been drugged. The man says he shouldn’t take drinks from strangers and David passes off. The dog whines and the man says he’s just sleeping.
Snow walks in the woods and hears a noise behind her. She grabs up a rock. It’s Willoughby the dog and she stoops to pet him. Then the hunter is upon her. He says the dog just needed a scent and holds out her scarf. She spits in his face and he laughs.
The man says he’s taking her to the queen for a reward. Now, Snow and David look around. He says this is near where Snow found him when he left the hospital. Snow says she’s happy to be on an adventure. Regina gets an ax and finds a trap door. They magic down into it.
Happy endings in the past
Hook and Emma are packing up the vault so they can stash the EQ there once they trap her. Emma is feeling pretty down but Hook encourages her. Hook says she’s the savior born of the love of her parents and she brought them together.
He says she can overcome these visions and anything. In the past, David woke from his drugged sleep and hears a noise. It’s Snow. She tells him he has to go before the woodcutter kills him. He runs to grab a rock to try and bust her out.
Now, Snow and David find the sapling. They grab it together and they have a flashback to their whole love story. Snow says it was created from true love and wonders if that’s what it shows you. Snow has a memory that sticks for a moment and seems off.
Sapling to dust
EQ appears and says time flies. She takes the sapling. Snow says that sapling won’t work for her since it’s made of true love. EQ snaps it and then laughs as she turns it to dust. She asks if they want to hand over their hearts now.
The EQ encourages them to rage against the dying of the light. She says she’ll see them at the cemetery soon. She’s gone. Snow says they have no choice – they can’t let the town die. David agrees. Snow worries what the EQ will do with them.
They talk about the power they felt in the sapling. David says he heard knowing you believe in me, you’re not alone. Snow says that was her memory, not his. She says that was a memory they didn’t share. Back in the EF, David tried to break her out then the woodcutter attacked.
David fought the man and she grabbed his ax so David could attack him. Together they killed the guy. David has the key and goes to unlock it. She says don’t open it and says she has enemies. She says if he sees her face, there will be a target on him.
David hands her the key through the door without seeing her face. He asks why she’s alone out there and she says trying to survive. David says he was heading to Longborn to try and sell his mother’s farm. Snow offers him money as a reward for rescuing her.
Snow says she is resourceful and doesn’t need the money. She tells him there’s a corrupt nobleman that rides through the woods and she might have to liberate some from her. She says knowing you believe in me means I’m not alone and she handed him a handful of coins. The touch of their hands caused the sapling to grow.
Love triumphs over all
Now, EQ waits in the cemetery and the townspeople are there. She invited them there and says it’s about them. She says if Snow doesn’t show up in five minutes, she’s going to give them a taste of water from the river of lost souls.
Zelena says something smart to Belle about EQ and Gold and what they’ve been up to. Regina shows and asks if Emma is ready. Snow shows up with David and EQ says they’re right on time. David says they’ll do the right thing to save the people.
Emma is bothered but Snow says they always know where their paths will take them – to each other and back to her. They tell Regina to lift the protection spell. She does. Emma is horrified about what will happen. They face the EQ.
EQ spreads her arms wide and reaches into them to take their hearts. The crowd shudders. She has their hearts in her hands. She says she has dreamt of this moment for so long. EQ says she wants to give Snow her pain, the pain of being alone.
EQ says she has something crueler than killing her and shoves their hearts back into their chests. Snow collapses and David goes to her. EQ says this sleeping curse has a little twist. She poofs Snow away in magic and tells David to start looking for her and let’s see what happens when you find her. The EQ is gone too.
Belle comes to see Gold and tells him she knows about him and the EQ. She says she doesn’t care about that but does care about the shears. Belle says Zelena told her that he plans to use them to cut their son off from his future. Belle says she forbids it.
Search for Snow is on
Gold says the things he does are driven by love. Belle says if he was pure evil, maybe she’d understand it but says he could be a good man if he wanted to. She says don’t take your son’s love – be worthy of it. He asks what if he fails. Belle says he’s afraid of failure.
She says he’s worse than evil, he’s weak and she walks out. Gold is furious at Zelena. Emma and David run home looking for Snow but she’s not there. They head to the woods. David stops the truck and gets out to run through the woods. He finds her in a glass coffin.
David removes the lid and Emma catches up to him along with Regina and Henry and Hook. Regina says a kiss probably won’t do it this time. He tries anyway. Her eyes open and now he collapses. Snow sits up and calls his name. Regina checks him over.
Regina says there’s a sleeping curse on the heart. She says when one is awake, the other will be asleep. As long as the curse exists, they can never be together. Wow. That is pretty evil.
