In Storybrooke, "upon discovering Cora [Barbara Hershey] and Regina's [Lana Parrilla] plan to find and take possession of Rumplestiltskin's [Robert Carlyle] dagger, Mary Margaret [Ginnifer Goodwin], with the aid of David [Josh Dallas] and Mother Superior [Keegan Connor Tracy], makes it her mission to find it first."

Meanwhile, in New York, Rumple "continues his quest ... to reunite with son Bae [Michael Raymond-James]" and "Hook [Colin O’Donoghue] devises a plan to rid himself of a crocodile." Based on the preview of the episode, it looks like his plan actually helps bring Rumple and Bae together ... but that doesn't mean it's not bad news.

In the flashback, "the Blue Fairy offers Snow White an unconventional enchantment that could help save her dying mother, Queen Eva."

This episode will feature Rena Sofer as Queen Eva, Downton Abbey's Lesley Nicol as what appears to be a royal servant, and Sonequa Martin-Green as mysterious new character Tamara.
