Regardless, it was lovely and the narration vivid, effortlessly bringing the characters to life. A part of me, however, is disappointed in Alistair. Darcy; he was no Mr. Darcy, period. But that might not have been the author's intention at all. I just personally wanted a Darcy May 04, Ugly Love. I couldn't endure Miles' melodramatic chapters anymore.
And the narrator audio book version had such a deep voice; it was painful to listen to and, I couldn't endure Miles' melodramatic chapters anymore. And the narrator audio book version had such a deep voice; it was painful to listen to and, at times, hard to discern the words uttered. But, well, this was one of my first experiences with audio books.
May 03, May 07, Black Iris. Mom used to say that if you listen, people will tell you exactly how to hurt them. Because part of us wants to be hurt. We want to know how strong we Mom used to say that if you listen, people will tell you exactly how to hurt them. We want to know how strong we really are. Well, well… finally. I have finally read an enjoyable lesbian romance story. Thank you, Leah Raeder , for convincing me of the contrary. Thank you. I saw it the second you arrived. With the salt breeze whipping through your hair, and a house burning behind you. She takes drugs. An anti-heroine.
Everything inside this strikingly intense novel is planned out masterfully: the storyline, the characters, the vendetta, the relationships… The relationships. Laney and Blythe cast a spell on each other… and on me. Girls love each other like animals. There is something ferocious and unself-conscious about it. No one trains us to shield our hearts from each other. Our skin is bare and soft. We love with claws and teeth and the blood is just proof of how much.
Because it deserves it. Most of us are sheep who spend our lives in want. We follow the path worn smooth and velvety from the hooves before us. Apr 25, Apr 27, This is the kind of New Adult book I enjoy reading. I read everywhere. I never do that. She got to me.
Her story touched a part of my heart I had no idea could be affected. I wanted to strangle everyone that hurt her. I wanted to shield her from Trey, from Lydia, and help her get the happy ending she deserved. Because she did deserve for everything to turn out well for her. So it is very likely that you will be frustrated or deceived by her during your reading. Auburn was a woman that was willing to sacrifice so much for someone… that I cannot tell you about, and seeing her accepting to let go of Owen whom she was in love with and treated her well , in order to never lose that person in question it might surprise you to discover who that is!
Circumstances made it that there was an insta-love between the two main protagonists from whom we actually have the point of views. Oh, how I loved the writing. The paintings were completely stunning! Mar 18, Mar 20, Amour Amour Aerial Ethereal, 1. New Adult was never my favorite genre. This book though proved me that there are some great ones out there only waiting to be sought. And, 3. And, guess what? I found one. Maybe my rating will seem unfair, giving how I qualified this book to be, but, had it not stretched and stretched and stretched, it might have easily reached a four, four point five star rating.
The best thing about this novel was the set of characters — both principal and secondary ones. All of them sparkled in ambition, kindness, talent or beauty. And they will entertain the hell out of you! Timo, especially. Always ready to plaster a smile on your face. And you know what also turned out lovely about this story? The LGBT theme inside it. I hope this is something that will happen in the future. They NEED to at least consider it. She was also not that great of a gymnast since she not-so-gracefully failed the audition for the circus. But, you know what?
She was flawed and I loved that about her. But did that stop her from following her dream and passion? Hell no! She, as she kept on mentioning, was her only cheerleader. A character with such beautiful confidence is rarity and leaving everything behind because what she wanted and needed were not things she could find in her home town equalled pure risk-taking. But she did it! And following her path to success was something I did with pleasure…and time because horrible slow-pacing. Nikolai, the Russian, tall, well-built and seducer love-interest annoyed me at first.
We first met him in a quite unexpected scene and the outcome of that scene kind of, okay, really made me cringe my teeth. Hello, he tattooed and pierced people blindly! Who does that? With some self-thought experience, alright, but he could have injured Thora…when piercing her nipple. You heard right. But, well, why not, right? She was in Vegas after all. So that was definitely interesting!
But, hey, that is a complaining I keep making in my NA reviews so, perhaps, it is me that should accept that contemporary romance novels naturally contain romance here, there, everywhere. You will certainly not find the kind of circus details and atmosphere that is present in The Night Circus , but you will find one filled with love, friendship, hope and…family.
Jan 21, Jan 23, Charles, K. However, even though it started out relatively well and interestingly, it did not continue on that track. The beginning was enjoyable but a little confusing. I thought they were cute. And believed in their chemistry very much. But, sincerely, why did they have to meet in such an expected place? Things were lovely for them, for the most part, after they met, and I did enjoy the flashbacks even if some were unnecessary.
And so the story went. Ben was searching for Jonah, the thief and, when he got him, they flew together. And I was like ''Well, okay, why not, right? Sure, things happened and they briefly met some new people, but they weren't important!
- Gold Fix: Life on the Bullion Desk!
- DOUZE NOUVELLES CHINOISES (French Edition).
- MORE IN LIFE.
- What the Backlash to ‘My Family’s Slave’ Obscured - The Atlantic.
And one-dimentional as well! And so common that I didn't bother paying attention to them. It would have been obvious days ago, if Ben had been able to think properly. His mind was clear now, and he could see it all. Jonah would never change, would never be responsible, quite blatantly intended to steal again should it become necessary.
Ben couldn't live like that, waiting for the next disaster, not after Jonah's love had already plunged him into hell. He'd say goodbye tomorrow and go, before they hurt each other more. It was the only sane thing to do, for both their sakes. But if this was to be the last night No no no no no. You already did that once, remember??? Quite fiercely…In that room And what happened? Well, he saved you and oh! And things started to get better. Well, not quite, since what Jonah did to Ben, this latter could never forget, but I hate it when, us readers, are simultaneously confused as well.
But that's personal. For instance, the writing was good and felt natural. I did have the occasion to discover it with The Magpie Lord , but this latter did not contain windwalkers or many different mages at all. It can be read as a standalone, as the author said, but I would recommend reading it after Flight of Magpies nonetheless, because I feel like there were parts that unintentionally?
Dec 21, Dec 22, Wicked A Wicked Trilogy, 1. Armentrout, Jennifer L. B-But…I usually love Jennifer L. Her characters always feel like they could just jump off the page and stand before you, and her w B-But…I usually love Jennifer L. Her characters always feel like they could just jump off the page and stand before you, and her writing always flows perfectly with the story and pacing. Yet, this did not work for me. Ivy works for the order: she kills fae, those despicable creatures that lure into the human world.
Except, one day, she finds herself in front of an Ancient , while those were supposed to be held in the Otherworld only. Could it be that a grand danger is to come? When the Ancient escapes more like the other way around — he is too powerful , she plans on finding him again and, this time, to actually vanquish him. But, she will not be alone on this mission. Ren, her new partner, will be beside her. I honestly thought Ivy was a good heroine to read about. Thrown around? Most definitely. Almost set on fire?
That too. But being shot…wow, this sucked donkey balls. Ren was…a bit strange. The romance overall was okay, but very predictable and containing unsurprising scenes. It could have worked better if, I believe, we knew more about Ren and if this latter would have been more exciting. The pacing was great, really, but the writing, this time, repetitive and lacking of a throughout style.
He was fun and entertaining! I shook my head. On the contrary, unfortunately. Maybe I should keep my distance from them for a while? Nuh-uh, they always have such interesting premises; I cannot resist. Daniels is next. Dec 14, Dec 15, Blame It on the Mistletoe. Blame It on the Mistletoe is what I needed yesterday.
15 Powerful Things Happy People Do Differently
It is short! It is sweet! It is light! The story takes place in December, but, except for the mistletoe thing and little Christmas references, I could easily see this story taking place during any other season. The fact that it wasn't a 'heavy' book helped me get into the holiday mood, but I wished it contained more elements linked to the celebration. Mick and Fielding are sharing an apartment. Still, he knows how to have fun and interact with others.
Why would he kiss a guy? A guy he starts feeling more and more attached to. Could it be that he might actually feel something for his friend? Something on the…romantic side? Still, I repressed it as much as I could and tried to only focus on the chemistry between characters, which was easily noticeable. Fielding made this story for me. He is adorkable.
But, Mick is the one I could understand best, in a way. It is strange to say this, but everything he was thinking felt like something I would too, if I were in that situation. Sometimes I even predicted his next lines, which is something I usually can never do with characters in a story, except if the story in question is banal, predictable and cheesy. But that was not the case here. The kind we can see in many books or hear of: head cheerleader, best girl friend that gives more the impression to be a psychologist and living only for the protagonist than anything else.
This is a novella set during the holiday season that might please you! Dec 11, Nocte The Nocte Trilogy, 1. How do I even review this? Thank goodness it exists. And captivated, believe me! The author, from the start, made it clear that the style will be very intense.
Which was okay…after some time since I tried my best to get used to it. I had only read what? One page? And the writing showed already signs that something of importance perhaps happened or will happen and that went throughout the story. After every chapter, I thought maybe I would discover something or at least get some clues. Not even a bit. Maybe by paying more attention to the father, I would have had? Same thing happening while I was reading Black Lies. But, this? Which means that he could have been lying the whole time, who knows? He came out of nowhere, saying cheesy things to Calla and her doing the same.
It was obvious that they were intentionally not kissing or doing anything else, even though they both wanted it. That did help bearing those two pet peeves of mine a little. They both promise an unpredictable story, have mental illness as theme and, in each, we discover that two different person presented are actually…one. It was intense, yes, but, other than that, nothing. The book was dark, and I liked it. And, really, this could easily have been a standalone. Two more books? A trilogy? Dare is not THAT interesting and the story has lost something crucial by the end: view spoiler [a character…oh and its darkness.
The theme spiced up the story and Finn was a character I really wanted to get to the bottom of…. I really do. It does feel like something that either works for you or not, though. Dec 09, The writing was pleasant overall. Very weak execution to an even weaker and already done plot. It was as if, in my opinion, the author inserted them to attach us to the love-interest more. The characters during sex gave me as impression that they were somehow performing for us, readers. Like they knew we were watching and did what they thought would please us. One more thing: the main character was pretty blunt and didn't always think before she spoke.
That means her saying things or thinking stuff that can make you shake your head in disapproval. Just unexpected.

Thanks for fantastic info I was looking for this info for my mission. Hey there, You have done an incredible job. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Henry is afraid of what might happen if she tries to take him back. Then, Pongo begins to act unusually in front of the door. Emma opens it to see a very much alive Archie, who explains that Cora abducted him. Henry states they should probably tell Regina, though Emma worries that either way they will pay the price.
After a car crashes into Storybrooke, Emma drives to the scene while accompanied by her parents. They observe an amnesiac and frightened Belle who crossed the town line, a run-over Hook with multiple cracked ribs and a passed out stranger in the crashed car.
Emma and David work to restrain Mr. Gold from beating Hook to death for what he did to Belle. All three casualties are taken to the hospital as patients. Emma, along with her parents, Leroy and Ruby, try to break into the stranger's phone to learn who he is. After reviewing some paperwork left in the man's car, Emma sees that his name is Greg Mendell. From hacking into the phone, he looks to be a normal person.
Whale comes back from checking up on Greg and says the man is bleeding into his chest cavity. Unsure of his own skill, Dr. Whale consults Mr. Gold for help, but he refuses and only warns that they should hope Greg dies so an outsider can't spread their town's magic secret to the whole world. Emma, David, Mary Margaret, Ruby and Leroy go into a separate room to debate about the pros and cons of helping someone from outside of town.
Ultimately, the decision is made to save the stranger's life no matter what. Whale leaves the room to prep for the surgery, and Mary Margaret remarks how drunk he appears to be. Suddenly, Greg's phone starts ringing. No one dares to answer in fear the phone might be traced to Storybrooke. As they are waiting for the surgery to finish, a male nurse cannot find Dr.
Whale, whose pager is the pocket of his disposed lab coat. Ruby runs off to track Dr.

Whale by scent and brings him back to perform the operation on Greg. The surgery is a success and Emma goes in to gather information from Greg about what happened. He confesses to texting while driving. With a breath of relief, she and her parents return to the apartment. Henry wishes to know the day's events and after being filled in, he realizes the Frankenstein story is not a fairytale nor does it exist as in the storybook.
Abruptly, Mr. Gold pays them a visit to ask Emma to fulfill the favor she owes him by helping find his son, Baelfire. Just before he leaves, Mr. Gold also warns if any harm comes to Belle while he is gone, he will kill them all. The day after, Emma prepares to leave town with Mr. Gold, but is also bringing Henry so Cora can't get to him. On the way out of Storybrooke, Mr. Gold is able to use a shawl enchanted with magic to cross the town border without losing his memories.
At the airport, Emma helps Mr. Gold go through the metal detector, and calms him down after he refuses security's request to take off his shawl. As they wait for the plane to take off, Emma reassures him that it is going to be okay and they will find his son. They arrive in Manhattan, and all three step out of a cab in front of an apartment complex.
Inside the lobby, Emma is able to spot a room number——which has no name listed. She pushes the buzzer, and announces herself as a UPS package deliverer, but then the intercom abruptly switches off and the stranger escapes down the fire escape. On Mr. Gold's request, Emma gives chase. At an alleyway shortcut, she slams into the man, who is revealed to be her ex-boyfriend, Neal. In shock, Emma accuses Neal and his father, Mr. Gold, of conspiring against her because of her origin from the Enchanted Forest. Neal denies it and takes Emma to a bar where she learns that he let her go all those years ago because August told him to.
While she feels betrayed, Neal believes that he was leading her home. He suggests that their re-meeting was fated, though Emma brushes his comment off. When Neal notices the swan keychain around her neck, she gives it back. Ultimately, she lies to Mr. Gold; reporting that his son escaped. An adamant Mr. Gold breaks into his son's apartment where Emma sees the dream catcher, which Neal kept from their years together.
Once Mr. Gold notices and grills her about it, she sends Henry out of the room. As Mr. Gold continues to demand answers, Neal bursts in to stop him. At the commotion, Henry walks into the room, though Emma attempts to escort him out. However, Neal questions if Henry is his son, which Emma hesitantly confirms. Upset, Henry seeks refuge at the fire escape as she follows him out. As justification for her lies, Emma explains her assumption that Neal would never reenter her life and that she wanted to hide her past.
Henry accuses her of being just like Regina, who lied to him all the time. She apologizes, but he only asks to meet his father. Emma allows them to meet, but she warns Neal not to hurt Henry like he did to her. Gold presses for Emma to convince Neal to go back to Storybrooke with them. Emma doesn't see how she still owes him anything since returning the favor. She leaves it up to Mr. Gold to decide what is best for his son, though he compares her to Regina. He presents the possibility that Henry's need for his father will cause him to run away to New York.
Soon, Henry and Neal emerge out from a pizza parlor and are thinking about going to the museum next. When Emma asks him if he likes the pizza, Henry indirectly shows his grudge against her remains by saying that it's good and doesn't lie. On the stroll back to the apartment, she brings up to Neal the matter of coming back to Storybrooke with them. He is unsure and actually has something important to tell her, but Henry interrupts on their talk. While Henry and Neal go up to grab a camera for the museum trip, Emma mentions to Mr. Gold how the subject matter went with Neal.
From behind, Emma is shoved out of the way by a vengeful Hook, who then stabs Mr. She manages to knock him out just as Henry and Neal rush back down. They bring Mr. Gold up to the apartment room while Emma locks Hook in the storage room. From some sleuthing, Emma determines that Hook came to New York on his ship. Neal offers to captain the ship on the journey back to Storybrooke. Later, Neal alludes to how he met Hook in another world. Gold's dagger , which prompts her to oust the weapon's location from him. While getting a car to bring Mr.
Gold to the ship, Emma asks Neal why he is helping his dad. He tells her that there is a big difference between not talking to his dad and watching him die. She thinks the vehicle is going to be hot wired, but it is just a borrowed car. He tries to bring up the earlier topic he tried to discuss with Emma, but this time, a woman runs up to Neal. Gold in his bunker. Gold lets her know about what Cora could make him do if the dagger is in her possession. She assures him that they are family now, and won't be dying on her watch.
They make it to the town dock , and Emma is helped by her parents to take Mr. Gold to his shop while Ruby watches over Henry. Inside the shop, she is instructed by Mr. Gold to take out a piece of invisible chalk from a jar and draw a protection line at the door. Neal is surprised that he never knew she had magic. Since they dated a decade ago, she has no issue with his new relationship.
After this talk, Mr. Gold guides her into casting a protection spell by explaining that magic is not an intellectual endeavor, but an emotion one. She manages to erect a barrier just as Cora and Regina arrive to take it down. She, David, Mary Margaret and Neal join forces against the two women. Eventually, only herself and Neal are left in the battle. When Cora has to choose between Regina or the dagger, she picks the weapon.
Emma pushes Regina into Cora, and distracts them long enough for her and Neal to run to the backroom as she seals the doorway with another barrier. Later, Emma answers a phone call from David, who can't seem to find Mary Margaret. Close to death, Mr. Gold speaks to Belle on the phone and hangs up abruptly.
She watches as Mr. Gold and Neal finally reconcile. After a time, Cora finally breaks through the barrier. Emma and Neal stand guard, but she teleports them away to the forest. In their shared apartment, Emma hides the truth from Henry about why Mary Margaret is refusing to eat by saying she's sick. He can tell both she and David are lying. Realizing he has the right to know, she explains to him the circumstances that caused Mary Margaret to be partially responsible for Cora's death. Gold comes to warn them about Regina's plans of revenge on Mary Margaret and decides to help further by stopping it from happening after David demands him to do so.
After some amateur sleuthing in Regina's vault, Mr. Gold informs them of a spell called "the curse of the empty-hearted", that when cast on someone, has the ability to make the caster think the person loves him or her. From upstairs, Henry has been eavesdropping and pushes his way into the conversation. Furthermore, Mr. Gold details the spell is the only way Regina can get Henry and the love she craves, but also vengeance from Mary Margaret. The twist is, in order to enact the curse, Regina needs the heart of the person she hates the most, which is obviously Mary Margaret.
Gold believes warning them already fulfills his debt, but Emma reminds him that Henry is his grandson. Coldly, he asserts that wars have costs and considering this is a blood feud that goes back several generations, and the only way to end it is to spill more of it by possibly killing Regina. Henry dislikes using such a dark tactic as it is not heroic at all, but no one has a response.
Upset, he dashes out of the apartment as Emma follows. In an attempt to keep him safe, Emma calls Neal to ask for help in getting Henry out of Storybrooke. She brings him to a table booth at the diner where Neal is waiting. Emma leaves the two to talk. At the counter, Greg walks in to pick up his food order, which he later asks to have it to go.
While waiting, he chats with Emma about going on a nature hiking walk. Emma muses over why he hasn't gone back to Pennsylvania. Ruby comes back with his bagged food just as he says Storybrooke is starting to grow on him. After he is gone, Emma and Ruby exchange a curious look. She goes back to check up on Neal and is surprised to hear Henry has agreed to move to New York. However, Henry is not in the booth and Emma deducts that he ran off since his backpack is gone as well.
Emma and Neal regroup with David to search through the mines. Upon seeing some dynamite is missing, they realize Henry wants to blow up something. They arrive at the wishing well to see Regina speaking to Henry. As usual, Emma and Regina argue over their claim to Henry. The trio refuse to budge out of the way, so Regina conjures a fireball. Henry runs in between to force the fighting to cease, and desperately wants to get rid of magic. Regina states there is no way to do it, and Emma replies the problem is Regina, not magic. Henry believes the problem is everyone as magic is corrupting good people such as both Mary Margaret and Regina and makes them do bad things, though Emma insists it makes bad people do bad things, too.
He pleas for Regina to help him destroy magic, which is not possible, but she burns the spell to placate him. Henry thanks her, and leaves with Emma, David and Neal. Emma sees David is making yet another breakfast tray for Mary Margaret, who is still in bed since the aftermath of Cora's death. Though he reasons Mary Margaret is having a hard time, Emma believes it's time to move on.
Later in the day, she gets a call from Mary Margaret asking to meet up at the diner. At the counter, Mary Margaret blurts out August's whereabouts, and Marco, who is sitting next to Emma, overhears and wants to see him. They decide to seek out Mother Superior's help in this situation. Outside the nunnery, Mother Superior admits she knows about August's current dilemma, but there is nothing to help him since he did not obey the mantra of staying selfless, brave and true.
She states that if there is still a path of redemption for August, he must travel it on his own terms. The trio go through the woods to August's trailer. Out of guilt, Marco finally comes clean about the wardrobe's power to protect two people instead of one, and he selfishly made a deal with the Blue Fairy to allow his son to go through. Emma listens from the sidelines as Mary Margaret reacts in shock and slaps Marco.
Even Emma is stunned at her response, to which Mary Margaret apologizes and forgives him for his mistakes. They finally reach the trailer, but August is not inside. While heading back, Emma picks up a call from August when the line is cut off. Joined by David and Henry, they all go to the sheriff department in time to witness August stumbling out and collapsing as Emma and Marco attempt to help him. With his last bit of strength, he tries to warn Emma about someone, but only manages the word "her" before he passes away. Henry is struck by the idea that August can get a second chance if his actions proved himself to be selfless, brave and true.
Mother Superior rushes over in agreeance and successfully uses her wand to revert August into a seven-year-old Pinocchio. Emma tries to ask the young Pinocchio if he can remember what August was trying to tell her before, but he cannot recall. After a long day, they go home. Making amends with Henry, Emma apologizes to him for lying to him about Neal and promises she won't be dishonest again. She asks him not to push her away and Henry agrees that he won't. They make up with a hug and go upstairs together. David and Mary Margaret surprise Emma by driving her to an unknown location and refusing to say anything until she sees the place for herself.
They enter past an outside barrier to unveil rows of bean fields. Anton spots Emma and rushes off to greet her with a warm embrace. After a small amount of chit chat with Anton, Leroy marches over to pull him back to work. Emma is flabbergasted they secretly began growing magic beans during the time she was still in the Enchanted Forest, and instinctively picks up that her parents truly want to go back to their land. Even Mary Margaret now approves of the idea and by going back to the Enchanted Forest she could have a chance to heal her own heart from Cora's death. Though Emma thinks of this world as her and Henry's home, her parents see the Enchanted Forest as theirs.
They believe in their world, Emma just might have her happy ending. To mull over the idea, she goes to the docks and browses Henry's storybook. Regina approaches to speak to her about the revelation that Mr. Gold is Henry's grandfather. Emma says she was eventually going to tell her, but suggests that Regina should focus more on being Henry's mother before he is gone for good.
Judging from her tone, Regina suspects Emma is hiding something and vows to find out. Following a day of playing, a sleeping Henry is carried back to the apartment by Neal and they put him to bed. Out the blue, Emma asks Neal would he go back to the Enchanted Forest if there was a way. Neal is put off by the thought as he spent his whole life running from that place. They move to the table and Neal delves into the topic of August—who is now Pinocchio—and how he and Henry played together at the park.
At the mention of August, Emma voices her nagging concern about who is the person he had been trying to warn them about. Emma enters the diner and sees Tamara grabbing some bagged food. She purposefully bumps into Tamara and sends the items in her hands crashing to the floor, which causes both of them to apologize to each other. Emma picks up some of the dropped items, one of which, is a list detailing Storybrooke residents and their fairytale counterparts. Tamara says nothing and takes the paper back. Emma asks how she is handling the adjustment to town and Neal's secret about being from the Enchanted Forest, to which Tamara responds in a positive light.
Even so, Emma expresses concerns about what would happen if outsiders found out about Storybrooke and its inhabitants. Tamara is unruffled, and tries to sooth Emma's worries by saying she can trust her. The conversation leaves Emma more apprehensive than ever. Unable to keep it to herself, Emma spills her theorized idea to Mary Margaret that Tamara is the "her" August was talking about and even brings up the list she had.
Mary Margaret doesn't take her claims seriously and guesses she is still not over Neal, which Emma denies. Mary Margaret counsels that this theory of hers should not be known by Henry because even if Emma no longer has feelings for Neal, it will drive a wedge between him and Tamara.
Additionally, it will give Henry the false impression that his parents have a chance of getting back together. Surprisingly, Henry was eavesdropping and excitedly thinks he and Emma are "back in business". Outside the bed and breakfast, Emma and Henry have a stakeout inside the yellow bug car. Henry names their new partnership "Operation Praying Mantis". Henry had hopes of being in the Enchanted Forest, but a new operation in Storybrooke is fun too. Emma cautiously asks would he want to go to the Enchanted Forest if there was a way.
She refuses to say anything when he asks further. Decidedly, he envisions himself, Emma and Neal having a castle, which she thinks is silly. Just then, Henry shouts to duck as Neal and Tamara are leaving their room under an umbrella. Once they are gone, Emma pick locks their guest room while Henry keeps watch. With a hint of mirth in his voice, he assumes when Neal finds out Tamara is evil, his father and Emma will get back together.
Once again, Emma is exasperated that the impression is she's jealous of Neal's fiancee, and maintains she doesn't trust Tamara for other reasons. Henry still thinks Neal and Emma have a shot together when Tamara is out of the picture. Before she goes into the room, she instructs Henry to keep on guard, and to let her know when someone is coming by kicking the door. Inside, Emma begins unearthing a creaky floorboard that is interrupted by Henry kicking the door. Seconds later, Neal bursts in demanding an explanation. She fesses up about having a theory that Tamara is the "her" August mentioned.
When she points at the list Tamara had as evidence, Neal admits that he gave it to her so she could adjust to the town easier. He allows her to look under the floorboard, to which Emma finds nothing incriminating. Neal thinks she is having a hard time getting used to Tamara, but she cuts him off and leaves with Henry. At home, they nurse the temporary setback by snacking on ice cream. Henry believes what she believes, to which Emma agrees that her instincts are correct. Emma, David, and Mary Margaret investigate Regina's office after discovery of the destruction of the bean fields.
Regina nor the beans are in sight and the last time someone entered the office was by an override code. Unable to shake her own suspicions, Emma goes to question Neal about Tamara. Though he says she is jogging in the woods, Emma sees sand left behind on the floor. While they scour the beach coastline, Tamara runs up to casually mention the reason for her change in jogging areas. When she leaves, Neal expresses his hunch that Emma is jealous of his current relationship. Again, Emma fends off the accusation.
However, Neal fully discloses his regrets of not going and taking her place in jail all those years ago, fearing she'd never forgive him as he never forgave himself. Telephoned by David, Emma is filled in on Mary Margaret's temporary bodily connection with Regina and told the holding location is somewhere that smells like sardines. She recognizes that it must be the cannery. Her parents race further ahead in the search for Regina while she and Neal walk the hallways. Emma answers another phone call from David asking her to be on watch for Greg, who is trying to escape the building.
Emma awakens to see Neal is shot by Tamara. The two women get into a fight, but Tamara uses a magic bean to open a portal. Emma is almost sucked in, but Neal pulls her up. Then, Emma tries to hold onto Neal as he is slipping in. He urges to her to let go, but she stubbornly refuses due to his wound, and confesses her love for him. Neal admits he still loves her, too, and falls into the closing portal as a heartbroken Emma watches. In a numb state, she returns home and gives her parents the news Neal is dead.
With her parents, Emma heads to the park to pick up Henry. She tells him Neal has passed away while her parents say the same to Mr. They try to gain his help in stopping the trigger, but he refuses. Upon returning to the apartment, a quake rips through town. Emma orders Regina to make the trigger stop, but there is no way of doing that. Tension fills the air when Emma blames Regina for the current dilemma, to which Henry intervenes. When Hook realigns himself with them, he and David hunt down Greg to steal back the remaining magic beans while Emma goes with Regina to the trigger in the mines.
Before beginning slowing down the trigger, Regina warns that she won't be making it out alive and asks Emma to tell Henry she died a hero. Emma hurries to the diner where the other townspeople are gathered. David and Hook procured only one bean, but it's enough. Even so, Henry is unwilling since Regina will be left behind. Mary Margaret is struck with an idea of sending the trigger through a portal. Emma doesn't believe anyone is willing to go through with such a risky plan, but Archie persuades her it's the right thing to do and manages to rally everyone else in agreement.
However, Emma is concerned Henry will grow up alone just like herself. Mary Mary Margaret begs her not to take the same path that led to Cora's death and they can't build a future on Regina's blood. Emma finally agrees, but as David tosses her the bean container, Hook snatches it in mid-air, which she makes him give back. They go back to the mines to use the bean to contain the trigger, but Emma realizes too late that Hook tricked them. On a spur of the moment idea, Emma combines powers with Regina to successfully deactivate the trigger.
After the danger is over, Henry is discovered to be kidnapped by Greg and Tamara, but they are not fast enough to stop the duo from taking him into a portal. Upon discovering Hook's ship is still in port, the pirate offers to assist them in finding Henry. Aboard the Jolly Roger , Mr. Gold conjures the magic globe to unveil Henry's current location in Neverland.
They set sail as soon as a portal opens from the last magic bean. During the sail to Neverland, Emma is approached by her parents, who try to comfort her over losing Neal and Henry. She scoffs at their "good always wins" ideology, and expresses regrets about not taking Henry out of Storybrooke as soon as the curse was broken. When her parents continue to be optimistic, Emma snaps at them for their unwavering hope, especially when everything has been going wrong since the curse broke.
Mary Margaret reassures her that they will find Henry, however, Mr. Gold interrupts the conversation to announce he intends to rescue his grandson alone, as he doesn't believe Emma has what it takes. He lists all the reasons why she will fail in this mission, such as her disbelief in her parents, in magic, and herself.
Emma professes she is willing to do whatever it takes to get Henry back, but Mr. Gold still doesn't believe her, stating that she will always need someone to show her the way. After Mr. Gold teleports off the ship, Emma retreats below deck, where she is doing pull-ups, when Hook interrupts to give her an old sword that used to belong to Neal when he was a boy.
As they have a toast in honor of Neal, the ship suddenly rocks violently, prompting them to investigate and discover mermaids are slamming against the ship. While David fires ammunition to scare off the mermaids, Emma works with Mary Margaret to catch one of the sea creatures on a fishing line, and Regina uses fire magic to force the remaining school of mermaids into fleeing. After Regina teleports the fishing line onto the ship, the group discuss what to do with the caught mermaid, who sounds a conch shell and threatens them with death if they don't free her.
Upon realizing the mermaid has summoned a storm at sea, Regina turns the mermaid into a statue, which only speeds up the storm. Mary Margaret and Regina's bickering turns into a brawl, and soon, even David and Hook are at odds. Emma discovers everyone's animosity towards each other is making the storm worse, but her attempt at getting their attention falls on deaf ears, so she jumps overboard just as a rope pulley snaps and hits her on the head, knocking her out. David swims out to grab Emma, while Hook, Regina, and Mary Margaret work together to pull both of them up.
The storm ceases, and the group eventually reach the shoreline of Neverland. Before going any further, Emma encourages everyone to cooperate with each other in order to save Henry. While the group treads through the jungle upwards to a cliff ridge, Emma awkwardly dodges Mary Margaret's attempt at getting closer to her. She wants Emma to be less formal and call her Mom. Emma is uneasy about the subject, and notes the last time she did, it was because they were all going to die, so Mary Margaret drops the subject.
Through one path, they narrowly avoid walking straight into a patch of Dreamshade. Up ahead, the ridge allows them to get a view of the island, but too much has changed since Hook was last in Neverland and he can't tell the difference between anything. They can't comb the jungle, either, because it's not safe to travel through. The group rest for the night, though Emma is still worried their search for Henry is taking too long.
During the night, Emma wakes up to voices. She investigates and raises her sword in alarm when spooked by a young boy, who presents himself as Peter Pan. He lets her know that Henry is still alive and wants to give her a map to find him. He heeds that the map will only work when she stops denying her true self. Later, Emma makes the effort to unveil the map by stating facts about herself, with encouragement from her parents, but nothing works. Tired of playing games, Regina snatches the map and casts a locator spell on it, which leads them straight to Pan, who then sends the Lost Boys to engage them in combat.
Emma ends up pinning one boy down, but the expression in his eyes frighten her and she backs off. Following the battle, Mary Margaret opens up a dialogue with Emma about why she withdrew from the fight earlier on. Reluctantly, Emma admits that the boy had the same look of despair she had while growing up in the foster system as a lost, unimportant girl desperately longing for the parents who gave her up.
Emma confesses to being what she's always been, an orphan, causing the map to uncover its contents. They group form a strategy to travel towards Pan's camp and begin assemble for leaving. Hook offers her some rum and asks how she got the map to work, which Emma briefs that she just followed Pan's instructions. He's curious about who she really is, but Emma isn't interested in sharing that information. Hook presses further, though she simply walks away. Later, while Emma is scourging for berries in the bush, Pan commends Emma for beating his game, but also implicates that she hasn't forgiven her parents for their abandonment.
Additionally, he accuses Emma of bestowing Henry with the same feelings. Pan threatens two things will happen by his endgame; that Henry will never want to leave the island, and Emma herself won't just feel like an orphan, but also be one. The plan to reach Pan is a failure once when they notice his camp location keeps changing; making their journey fruitless. Hook considers a fairy named Tinker Bell who Pan trusts and can likely get them into the camp with pixie dust. Regina thinks Tinker Bell is bad news and presents Emma with a separate suggestion of combining their powers to take on Pan.
Emma refuses since there's always going to be a price of magic. Out of frustration, Regina accuses Emma of listening to Hook because he's her "boyfriend", which she is incredulous at the claims. Later, Emma confirms her own suspicions that Regina and Tinker Bell know each other, and asks the mayor herself for details. Regina only says it's a "complicated history" and all the better if Tinker Bell doesn't meet her again. The two have a shared moment about Henry when Regina brings up her naming of the rescue mission as "Operation Henry".
Emma is urged on ahead by Regina, so she catches up with the others at Tinker Bell's empty tree house. Inside, the tree house reminds Emma of the home she grew up in. Mary Margaret, too, surprisingly, can relate with only having a makeshift bed to sleep in as she called a tree stump home while on the run from the Queen. Strangely, Tinker Bell's tree house has a ladder, even though fairies have wings for flying. David finds a white cloth, which is Regina's and they rush off to rescue her. They corner Tinker Bell outside a cavern, but an unharmed Regina attests to the fairy's innocence.
Regina tells them Tinker Bell lost all her fairy powers a long time ago and can't help infiltrate Pan's camp. Tinker Bell acknowledges that people not believing in her anymore, so she stopped being a fairy. Even though she can help them, Tinker Bell wants to know what's in it for herself.
Emma and Mary Margaret promise if Tinker Bell helps their cause, she can make a new home in Storybrooke. Tinker Bell agrees and goes back with them to camp. At the camp base, Emma elaborates on their strategy for entering Pan's headquarters from the back after Tinker Bell talks her way in through the front. Before they put the plan into action, Tinker Bell wants to know their escape route off the island, which no one has a clear answer. She stresses that no one ever leaves the island without Pan's permission. To prove a point about how dangerous Pan can be, Tinker Bell shows them a watch that came from the people who brought Henry to Neverland, proving Greg and Tamara were killed by him.
Tinker Bell weighs the risk as not worthy unless they have a way to leave Neverland and she makes off for her tree house. Emma sees reason in Tinker Bell's words, and recalls what Neal once taught her that it is "unwise to break into a place without knowing the way out. They set off for a cave Neal once inhabited as a boy. Emma looks at the art scrawls on the wall and is surprised that Neal liked drawing.
