But Mr. Gold is there, too, and he expects to take possession of the child. Emma, who obviously sees parallels between her younger self and Ashley, intercedes and offers to make Mr. Gold a counter-offer. He tells her he will void his contract with the girl and in exchange Emma will owe him a favor. She agrees, and Ashley and Sean finally get their happy ending. But what will be the price Emma has to be for securing it?
