Emma Swan may have lived life in the Land Without Magic, but at this point in Once Upon a Time, she knows a lot about Fairytale Land.

While she has only been there once, she’s thinking about returning for good, and she turns to an unlikely person for help: Neal, aka Rumplestiltskin’s son Baelfire and her baby daddy. It’s a messy situation, but they seem to be co-parenting Henry and getting along well in this new sneak peek from Season 2, Episode 19: “Lacey,” airing this Sunday, April 21.

After Neal drops Henry off at Emma’s — literally, the poor guy is passed out on his shoulder, and he deposits him on the couch — the former couple sits down for an interesting heart-to-heart.

“Have you ever thought about going back?” Emma questions. “Home, where we’re from?” Neal is quick to respond with a tongue-in-cheek answer, saying, “I spent most of my life trying to forget that place — not exactly a fairy tale childhood.”

When he questions back, “Why do you ask?” Emma is equally quick to respond with “no reason” before moving on to the next pressing subject: August.

As a reminder, August is not Emma’s love interest — he’s back in little boy Pinocchio form after Neal’s fiancée, Tamara, killed him and his brave, truthful, and unselfish actions brought him back to life. It’s a lot to process, and Emma is unnerved by the situation, while Neal thinks that he’s “actually a lot cooler as a kid” and a great pal for Henry.

“It would be way cooler if he could remember what he was trying to tell us about before he got...” Emma trails off, to which Neal finishes, “Rebooted.” She responds with the burning question on everyone’s minds (including ours): “Storybrooke isn’t safe? Isn’t safe from who?”

Hopefully we’ll find out sooner rather than later, but in the meantime, SwanFire fans will be pleased with his sweet closing compliment. But you’ll have to watch the video below to see what he says!

Once Upon a Time returns on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
