Episode Summary

EDIT

Bail bondsman Emma Swan is confronted by Henry, the child that was given up for closed adoption 10 years ago. He asks her to come to his home of Storybrooke with him and explains that the people there are fairy tale characters who don't remember who they are. The boy insists that his adoptive mother, Mayor Regina, doesn't love him, and that Emma has a destiny to fight in a final balance and help good win once and for all.
