Though Once Upon a Time Season 3, Episode 8 is titled “Think Lovely Thoughts,” no one is doing that in Neverland. As seen in a new sneak peek (via E! Online), someone snaps during a heart-to-heart, everyone draws their weapons toward one person who isn’t Peter Pan, and Rumplestiltskin’s secret is revealed.
The jam-packed spoilery video starts with David walking away to find Tink, leaving Emma and Mary Margaret alone.
“Looks like you two buried the hatchet,” Emma notes as Snow and Charming seem to be chatting happily. “Buried… uh, I don’t know. We’ve at least put it away for now,” Snow responds.
“So you’re really going to stay here with him?” she asks, changing the mood. "The thought of leaving you, Emma, it kills me, but there's nothing we can do,” Mary responds. “If David leaves the island, he'll die."
“So you’re just giving up? Family means being together, all of us,” Emma says, suddenly raising her voice. When Mary says there’s “no other way,” Emma lays down the law.
"Maybe this is just you rubbing off on me, but I don't believe that. There's always a way,” she says. Aww!
But then things take a turn for the worse. As Regina and Rumplestiltskin emerge from the forest, swords are drawn. They introduce Pandora’s Box, which apparently will trap Pan for eternity, but Neal is not having it.
Neal tells the secret that Rumple has been keeping for a few seasons, but especially this year: the prophecy that Henry will be his undoing, and the Dark One would rather kill the boy than save him.
“That’s why you didn’t want to find Neal because you got Henry back, because you knew he’d spill your secret,” Regina says, visibly upset.
“Everything I did was to protect Henry, to rescue him from Pan,” he tries to say, but weapons are drawn. “It’s not going to happen — not unless you go through all of us first,” Emma threatens.
Looks like he has to fight his way out of this one or prove his case. Check out the clip below, then tune in for the full episode on Sunday, November 17, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
