This episode features the core characters continuing to search for Henry (Jared S. Gilmore). Peter Pan (Robbie Kay) presents Emma (Jennifer Morrison) with a map of Henry's location, though it can only be successfully used if Emma embraces her true identity. Meanwhile, Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) gets some startling advice; and back in fairy-tale land, the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) has a tempting offer for Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin).
The Sword In The Stone is featured.
While searching for Henry, the quintet of Emma, Hook, Mary Margaret, David, and Regina find themselves exhausted from hiking in the island, especially now that the island has changed a lot since Hook left. But later that night, Emma hears something and investigates, and to her surprise discovers Peter Pan, who is anxious to meet the "Savior." Emma is aware of him having Henry, but Pan has something else in mind for Emma, as he tells her that she can get her son back, but in order to do that she must follow the directions on a map that he gives her. Emma notices the map is blank, but Pan tells her that she is the only one that can see it and in order to do that she has realize who her true identity is. Pan then disappears before Emma asks him more questions. As Emma tries to study the map by remembering her past, Regina looks it and casts a spell to locate Pan (since Pan was the owner of the map). Unfortunately, the directions that was to lead them to Pan was a trap, as the quintet are surrounded by The Lost Boys after Pan reminds Emma that she broke the rules (allowing Regina to cast a spell on the map), which resulted in a battle that left David slightly speared from a poisonous substance called Dreamshade, while Emma becomes spooked by what she saw in one of the boys. Mary Margaret sees this exchange, and Emma tells her that she saw herself in the boy: it was her despair from her past as an orphan growing up without her parents. At that point the map finally reveals itself to Emma, which contains directions to a spot where Pan has placed Henry. As the team prepare to continue the search, Pan appears to Emma and compliments her for unlocking the map by admitting who she really was (an Orphan ) but warns her that by the time she finds Henry, he won’t want to leave. He then taunts her with this message: “You won’t just feel like an orphan, you’ll be one.” As for David, he discovers that he has been poisoned by the Dreamshade and decides to conceal it from the others.
Meanwhile, Rumplestiltskin summons up his own shadow in an effort to bury his dagger so no one else would find it, including him. He then gets a visit from an image of Belle (which he conjured up, as she was still back in Storybrooke), who reminds him that he can find Henry without resorting to becoming the "The Dark One" and the only way to let go of the past is letting go of the doll (which was made by Rumple's father) that Felix gave him, and he does by throwing it over the cliff. However, the doll returns to Rumple and even his powers can't destroy it, resulting in Rumple placing it in his pocket.
In the Characters' Past
After Snow White is woken up by Prince Charming and vows to take back the kingdom, The Evil Queen is tipped off by the magic mirror as to where Snow White is, and appears in the village to interrupt their plans to overthrow her. She then offers an ultimatum, that Snow renounces the kingdom to her or she will kill the people she is close to her, and makes her point by choking a villager but doesn't kill her as she gave Snow a preview. Against the wishes of Charming, Snow already has an answer, leading the Prince to make a deal with Rumplestiltskin, who tells him of a legend that can be found in the Camelot realm. As they reach the destination, the two discover a sword in the stone – Excalibur. After Charming failed in his attempt to pull it, he convinces Snow to do it and she succeeds. When they return to the village, they're ready for Regina, as Snow tells her that she may be a queen, but she will not let her rule her people. Regina then tries to kill Grumpy by choking him, but Snow succeeds in saving him and uses the sword to strike Regina's face. As Regina sees the scar, she warns Snow that she will meet her on the battlefield.
Hours later, Snow calls out Rumplestilskin to ask him about Excalibur, and is willing to make a deal. As Rumplestiltskin appears, he tells her the sword is a fake – the real thing is still in Camelot – and it was Charming's idea to have her run through the sword in the stone routine. He then takes her mother's necklace as payment for wasting his time. Snow then returns to the campout to talk to Charming, who told her that the sword was to make her believe that she can stand up to Regina and it was all her doing without any magic. The two kiss and made up.
Emma references the Disney film by mentioning "wax moustache... and perms” when talking to Hook.
When Hook threatens the Hooded Lost Boy, he makes mention of what he did to Rufio (the Lost Boy left in charge during Peter Pan's absence in the 1991 film Hook) and how his fate will be much worse.
- Emma, Regina, Snow and David meet Peter Pan, who is the complete opersite to the original character. Pan is a villian but a hero in the original story.
- When Emma says she is the product of true love, the camera pans over Killian. Emma and Killian would end up falling in love and it would later be revealed that they are each other's true love. This episode hinted towards it with that scene.
