"Firebird" (Only three episodes after this. :-( ) Flashbacks take us to our world, before Henry found Emma. It starts with Emma at a lobster house asking if anyone remembers a baby that was abandoned nearby twenty years ago. The cashier doesn't, but a woman believes Emma was that baby. She also knows that Emma robbed convenience stores and jumped bail. The woman is Cleo Fox, bounty hunter/bail bondsman. She catches Emma and the ensuing adventure shows us how Emma took up a job as bail bondsman and got her jacket and put up armor. Cleo, upon Emma promising she'll go quietly if she helps, takes Emma to the courthouse to find anything on Emma only for Cleo to say it's a dead end. She tells Emma she can't be emotional, she has to protect herself. Emma sneaks out of their motel that night to come back to the courthouse, with Cleo right behind her. They don't find anything useful, Cleo came not for the money put to protect Emma s, if they're caught they're both in trouble. The avoid the guards by going through the newly broken back window. Only Cleo cut her stomach on the glass. She tells Emma to go, to pay for what she did. Emma runs and, evidently, does pay her bail and takes up the job. We see her later as she's on the trail of a bail jumper and sees her target. But it's not a bail jumper, it's Cleo's daughter Tasha, who Cleo apparently gave up. Emma tells Tasha her mom is dead, but gives her all the information she could find. Before leaving Emma buys a jacket, the red jacket. In the underworld it gets awkward, tense, and at the end very emotional and angry. First Hades arrives at the heroes looking for help. Rumple and Pan kidnapped Zelena and he needs an ace up his sleeve. If Emma helps him save Zelena, he'll take everyone's name off the tombstones. Hades gets to the diner and the jerks arrive, with Zelena trapped in the anti-magic cuff. Hades tears up the contract and Pan is ready to rip Zelena's heart out so he can leave, only for Emma to blast him. She notices Rumple is still there even after Hades ripped up the page. He poofs out with a startled Pan right behind. Selena realizes how much Hades loves her and they kiss. It is true love, the familiar pulse of light rushes out. The ground quakes as Hades can now leave for good, his punishment is over. Everyone goes to the cemetery where the clock tower has appeared. The hands are spinning faster and Hades says that soon a portal will open and it will stay open until sunset. He keeps his end of the deal, taking everyone's names off the tombstones. Emma does the heart split, but it doesn't work. Hook's been dead too long, it worked for David because he was only dead for a minute, his soul hadn't moved on. Emma, refusing to believe there's no way to save Hook, realizes from Hades' face that someone did defy the odds and get out. They go to Hades' suite and he tells the story of Euridycys (I can never spell that right). The only problem is that with all the tests and such in the path even he never went to that level of the underworld. All he knows is that Emma will have to weigh her heart in a sense, but as she won't be able to use magi down there Hades does a gentle manly thing and rips her heart out for her. Emma and Hook go down the elevator. Meanwhile Robin arrives and sees Hades and Zelena. Regina explains what's going on and, as he won't leave Regina but he won't risk trapping their child in the Underworld, reluctantly gives the baby to Zelena. She and Hades leave. Robin, needing a moment, strides through the aisles and finds Rumple, who takes his heart. No one knows, up oh. But they're distracted when Cruella saunters over and Regina is ready to fight, even if Cruella can't die. But Cruella isn't alone, the blind witch appears as Cruella doesn't have any real magic so to speak. She pushes the heroes into the library and seals them inside. Regina realizes the spell trapping them is out of the blind witch's level, Hades gave her the spell. They realize that they've been set up. Down in the belly of the underworld Hook and Emma come to a pair of scales, and we learn Hook can read latin, or greek, courtesy of the royal navy. Emma puts her heart on the scale, after a lovely dialogue of how Hook has helped her take down the armor around her heart. Emma's suddenly in pain. Hook goes for her heart only to be wrapped in flames. Emma tackles Hook out of the fire and the pain stops, the doors open. They passed the test. But it was for nothing. The tree is cut down, the ambrosia dead. They realize Hades sent them down so they'd be trapped. They race to the elevator but Hook doesn't get on. He tells Emma to leave, having her promise not to put her armor up again just because she lost him. She has him promise not to have her be his unfinished business, to move on. They kiss and hold hands as the elevator takes Emma up until they can't. Emma reaches the top and everyone's caught up. Emma and Regina combine their powers and open the door. Henry, who used his author skills to write down everyone's unfinished business, leave his work in the library for people to find so they can move on. Thus completing Operation Firebird. They reach the portal just in time but Emma is still reluctant to get it. She says she got the jacket as a reminder to protect her heart, now it's a reminder to protect those she loves. She jumps into the portal ready to take Hades' head off. Ooh! Rumple, right, the guy we love hating, or hate loving. He's in the shop and kisses Belle, but she doesn't wake up. A+ for effort though. Pan arrives and says that he'll accept Rumple for who he is. Rumple shows Pan Robin's heart. Pan says he's a good son and Rumple shoves the heart in his chest. But Pan is in pain. Rumple said he knew Pan most likely had his shadow watch him while Pan was occupied. So he didn't take Robin's heart. What he put in Pan was a wine skin full of water from the river of tortured souls. Pan finally, for good, dies. Rumple uses Pandora's box to carry Belle and he made it through the portal. Leaves one to wonder that, even though his unborn child is safe, will he help in the fight against Hades? He told Belle he can't change into a different man, but he can be a better one. Will he keep that promise?
