PANtheism

Emma cuts her off. "I appreciate you trying to be parents, but we're the same age. We have equal amounts of wisdom. I should never have broken the curse. I should have just taken Henry and..." Like daughter, like mother. Snow interrupts and acknowledges the truth in Emma's words. After all, she and Charming missed their chance to rear Emma, and it haunts them still. Charming assures his daughter they'll reunite their family. Emma is put off by their optimism and points out how even since the curse was broken their lives have sucked. Snow says, "Emma, the minute I let go of the belief that things will get better is the minute I know they won't." That has three different meanings, one of which amounts to nothing, but I can't think about it too hard or I get dizzy.

When Snow promises Emma they'll find Henry, Rumpy appears and says, "No you won't." He's already had enough of team work. He's going rogue, because he wants to succeed. Emma wonders why he thinks she'll fail. Rumpy says, "How could you not? You don't believe in your parents, or in magic -- not even yourself." When she argues that she had the faith to slay a dragon, Rumpy points out she only believes what's been shown to her. "When have you ever taken a real leap of faith? You know -- the kind where there's absolutely no proof." Well, there was the time she kissed her son, saved his life and broke the curse, but Rumpy's stumping, so he's got no time to listen to me. "I've known you some time, Miss Swan, and sadly, despite everything you've been through you're still just a...bail bonds person looking for evidence. Well, dearie, that's not going to work in Neverland." When Emma insists she'll do what it takes, Rumpy hisses that she needs someone to tell her what that is. "Sorry, dearie, our foe is too fearsome for hand-holding. Neverland is a place where imagination runs wild, and sadly, yours doesn't." Yeoch. I mean, that's probably true, but ouch. At that he spins his walking stick and disappears. The stick falls to the deck. We cut to...

Neverland. As GROAN lights a signal fire, Henry asks if they're having S'mores because...I guess some of his brains got sucked out by the portal. Tamara wonders if the empty hand-held communicator was no accident, because perhaps she ended up with Henry's missing grey matter. GROAN sneers a warning not to let the kid get in her head. Too late, dude. She's almost a sentient being, now. Before he can close his mouth, the group is surrounded by hooded young men. Their leader, Felix (Parker Croft) announces, "We're the Home Office. Welcome to Neverland."
