Darkness has fallen over Storybrooke, and it’s not just the sunset. Captain Hook and Cora have arrived, but they’re being careful to keep their presence a secret. While Hook is eager to skin his crocodile, Rumplestiltskin, Cora reminds him that magic has come to Storybrooke and skinning him won’t be quite so easy. She concocts a new plan that will have Regina ready to accept her mother’s help AND get Hook everything he needs to strike back at The Dark One. Meanwhile, Emma and Mary Margaret are celebrating their return with family and friends…and Regina. Emma invited her to the homecoming, but the people who knew her in Fairy Tale Land aren’t quite so quick to forgive the woman they know mostly as “The Evil Queen” and the person who cursed them. Emma and Regina seem to be getting along ok, though, but Emma rebuffs Regina when she asks if Henry can stay over with her once in a while. It seems a strange reversal from not long ago when it was Emma who was practically begging Regina for some more time with her son.
