season 3, episode 10 : Out of the Wood
present : Emma, David, Henry, and Mary Margaret race against time to save Ryan’s life. They manage to move him across the town line, where he is restored to full health, and Emma sheds a tear as she watches him drive away on his motorcycle, having already forgotten his time in Storybrooke. As they prepare to return to the town, David discovers the enchanted arc that protected Emma on her journey to the Land Without Magic. Upon touching it, Gold’s potion is overpowered and magic returns to Emma. A powerful surge erupts, bringing down the enchanted barrier between the town and the world around them so that the inhabitants of Storybrooke can come and go freely from the town and still sustain their memories. When the arc is returned to Evelyn and Marco, the former Blue Fairy uses her magic to restore Pinocchio to his human form, finally reuniting him with his father. Realizing that she is losing everything, Regina flees Storybrooke, determined to find new allies on the outside. Now that they have the ability to leave the town, Mr. Gold finally cashes in his favor from Emma: to help him find Baelfire. Emma agrees, hoping to be able to find Ryan again along the way.
past : As the Dark Curse looms above them as a reality, Snow White and Charming seek a way to protect their coming daughter. The Blue Fairy brings in Geppetto, who has agreed to create an arc from the last enchanted tree that will protect one person from the Curse. The plan is to protect Snow White and, by proxy, the baby within her – but when Snow White begins to give birth, everything is thrown into chaos as they realize they will have to send the infant princess to the Land Without Magic by herself. Meanwhile, Geppetto selfishly searches for a way to protect his son, who was made human by the Blue Fairy’s enchantment, and could never survive in the Land Without Magic. Geppetto finds a way to conceal the boy within a secret compartment in the arc and because Pinocchio was also created from an enchanted tree, he travels undetected to the Land Without Magic with the baby princess. Upon their arrival, however, Pinocchio is transformed back into a wooden puppet and is left behind with the arc when Emma is found.
