Neil and Emma goes to a cafe and talk about the past and she tries to get Neil to talk to his father but he doesn’t want to have a word to say to him. Neil ask Emma to lie and tell Rumpelstiltskin that he got away and she never caught up with him.

Back in Storybrooke, Cora, Regina and Hook are searching for a dagger that will allow them to control Rumpelstiltskin. As they search Belle’s library for the dagger, they find a map that Hook helps them to decode but after Hook decodes it they cancel him out of their plans to find it. The plan was revealed that they want to use the dagger to control Rumpelstiltskin so that he can kill Emma, Mary Margaret(Snow White), and David(Prince Charming), so that they can have Henry all to themselves.

Back in Manhattan, Mr.Gold breaks into his son’s apartment and Emma convinces him not too. As they go inside Mr.Gold feels as if Emma has something to hide and he starts yelling at her to tell him the truth and Emma tells Henry to go into the other room. Mr.Gold starts to yell a bit more and just as he gets closer to Emma, Baelfire(Neil) burst in and tells him not to touch her.

Henry then comes out of the room and ask, why is everyone yelling? and Emma tells him to go back into the room, Neil then ask who Henry was and Emma says her son, and as she escorts Henry back to the room he yells “How Old Is He?” twice and Henry turns around and Yells “I’m elevn, now why is everyone yelling.” Neil then ask Emma if Henry is his son and she says yes, and Henry storms off upset and Emma follows behind him.

Mr.Gold then has time to spend with his son to try to convince him to give him a second chance, but Baelfire isn’t going for it and says that he wants nothing to do with him at all. Emma and Henry begin to talk as he is upset that Emma lied to him about his real father and he tells her that she is Just like Regina.

Talk about a shocking episode, We didn’t expect for it to be revealed that Emma’s ex boyfriend would be Rumpelstiltskin’s son, although we did know that he was Henry’s father. This will cause things to get a bit more complicated in Storybrooke. Now that we know that Henry is related to Rumpelstiltskin this may cause a rift in Regina and Cora’s plans. Everyone is fighting to keep Henry but it seems as if they are not realizing how it may scar Henry’s future.
