At the end of Once Upon a Time Season 2, Episode 14: "Manhattan," Cora (Barbara Hershey) and Regina (Lana Parrilla) got their hands on a map to Rumplestiltskin's (Robert Carlyle) Dark One dagger. Do they get their hands on the actual object on Season 2, Episode 15: "The Queen Is Dead"?

This image from the episode tells an interesting story. It would appear that Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas) actually get the dagger first (which seems even clearer in this photo). That makes sense, since we know this episode does involve the Charmings trying to get to the dagger before Cora and Regina.
But it would appear that they then meet up with Regina and Cora. Why? Well, based on this photo (as well as this one), it looks like Regina is holding a heart. Whose? Hard to say. But based on these pics, plus what we know of the characters, our guess is that Regina/Cora threaten to kill someone if the Charmings don't hand over the dagger.
Do you agree with our reading? If so, whose life is being threatened? Or do you think something else is going on here? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
