During episode 14, while Mr. Gold is in the Big Apple searching for his son, Regina, Cora and Captain Hook plot to steal the one thing that gives Gold his power. Episode 14, “Manhattan,” on “Once Upon A Time” aired Sunday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m.
As Cora and Regina talk about Regina’s feelings over losing Henry, Captain Hook grows antsy to carry out his revenge against Rumplestiltskin. Hook realizes that by leaving Storybrooke, Rumple is without magic and vulnerable. Rather than chase him through the streets of New York with his sword, Cora suggests they look for the one item that gives Rumple his power- his dagger.
Regina goes to see Belle in the hospital. Belle still has no memory of who anyone is. Regina uses her magic to search Belle’s bag and retrieves an index card which leads her and the others to Belle’s beloved library.
Searching for the book, they instead find a piece of paper with childlike scribblings which Hook recognizes as a map. It can lead them to where the dagger is stored if Hook can decipher it.
Once he figures it out, Hook tells Cora and Regina where the dagger is hidden, assuming they ill all set out to find it together. Cora has other ideas and uses her magic to incapacitate Hook, leaving him unconscious in the library.
Regina inquires if Cora’s plan the whole time was simply to come to Storybrooke to get the dagger. Cora explains that once they have the dagger, they will control the Dark One and make him do their bidding which will include killing Snow White, Charming and Emma. This will place Henry squarely back in Regina’s hands without placing any of the blame on her.
Will Cora’s plan work or is she simply using Regina once again? Tune in next week to find out what happens on “Once Upon A Time.” For more dirt on what happened in episode 14, read ‘Once Upon A Time’ episode 14 takes Emma, Henry and Mr. Gold to ‘Manhattan’.
