In New York, Emma managed to track down Rumplestiltskin’s son, Baelfire, who turned out to be her former lover and Henry’s father, Neal. Unbeknownst to her, the situation was even more complicated for Mr. Gold, who had long ago discovered that young Henry would be his “undoing.” When the four of them returned to Neal’s apartment to get Henry’s camera, Gold was stabbed in the chest by a waiting Captain Hook, and to make matters worse, his hook was poisoned. Now Rumplestiltskin is dying, with magical healing his last hope. Emma, Neal, Henry and Mr. Gold race back to Storybrooke, looking for a cure, but what they will find is a waiting Cora and Regina, The Dark One’s dagger in-hand.
The battle for Storybrooke is about to begin and someone will not survive.
