Who do you guys think the Pied Piper will wind up being?
Someone new or a familiar face (in one way or another)?
It's Peter Pan. Surprised? Me neither. But I was hoping for something else...
But it's Pan, first starting off. He even came up with the name "Lost Boys" while talking with R-Stiltz. He already knows ALL about the Dark One and Baelfire...
Also... RELEASE THE KRAKEN!
The gf thinks that might be the giant squid from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea... does that mean they're bringing in Nemo?
anywho, Gold and Neal are working together to get some magic ink from the giant squid.
Hook tells Charming to tell them that he's been poisoned, but he won't.
And now they're doing the same Lord of the Flies-esque dance that they in the beginning. Baelfire could apparently hear the magic flute that "only the lost could hear" but Henry couldn't.
And there's a magic star map, thanks to Emma.
Okay, so they're working together... Gold confronts Pan, who knows Neal is nearby and calls for him to come out. Neal comes out and shoots Pan with a crossbow. He catches the arrow (surprise, surprise) and says something like "Have you forgotten what happened last time you tried this?". Then Neal responds "Nope, that's why I didnt coat the tip." HA! That was pretty cool acually! Then immobilized Pan starts talking about a prophesy and that's the real reason Gold is there...
Supposedly "a boy will reunite me with you (Neal) but he will be my undoing." He admits that he WAS going to kill Henry but now he's here to break the cycle and do the right thing.
R-Stiltz (in the past) says Pan is immortal and that he's known him for a long time and that he's pretty dark. If Bael had been asked, he says he would have chosen his daddy.
In the present, Gold is asked "why should I trust you" and Neal asks for the dagger that can kill him. Gold told him that he sent it away with his shadow. Neal immobilized Gold and took sleeping-spell Henry. Gold warns him about going off into the woods without him. Neal does it anyway.
10 minutes left, guess we should check in with the rest of the cast. Hook tells them that only Neal can read the sky map. She says she's pissed and that she lost a lot of time with Neal (she thinks he's still dead). Snow says nothing will happen to Charming as long as she's there. Oops.
Pan recaptured Neal & Henry, implying that he let Neal escape all of those years ago.
Henry wakes up at the LotF party (actually another party) , thinks he heard his dad (still thinking he's dead) and, after Pan plays with his head a bit, can now hear the flute he couldn't hear earlier. And he starts dancing with the Lost Boys.
Next week... the shocking hook up (no pun intended?) Between Emma & Hook, as they're shown kissing and Charming says "stay away from my daughter". And I'm thinking that's the extent of it.
