In this sneak peek of Once Upon a Time Season 2, Episode 15: "The Queen Is Dead" (airing March 3) Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) puts his knack for emotional insight to good use, as he tries to convince Emma (Jennifer Morrison) to persuade Neal/Bae (Michael Raymond-James) to return to Storybrooke.
The sneak peek begins with some cute father-son bonding time, as Neal and Henry (Jared Gilmore) discuss the merits of New York pizza (it's the best pizza in all the lands, Neal informs his son. Imparting important life lessons already!).
Unfortunately for Emma and Gold, their sons don't extend an invitation to this yummy food adventure. Gold, however, is not easily dissuaded, and he already has a new plan in the works to win Nealfire back: He wants Emma to invite him to come to Storybrooke.
Her immediate reaction is no way, dude. But Gold being Gold, he has more than a few arguments up his sleeve. He needles her with the theory that Henry might skip town to hang with daddy dearest if Neal stays in NYC, and when that doesn't persuade her, he comments that Emma totally still wants another shot with Neal.
We could watch Emma and Gold discuss their infinite family issues all day. Enjoy the sneak peek below! And if you want to know more about the episode, check out the official synopsis.
