During an exchange between Henry and Peter Pan, the reason for Henry’s abduction was finally revealed. When episode 3, “Quite A Common Fairy,” of season 3 of “Once Upon A Time,” aired Sunday, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m., Pan told the boy why he’d been waiting for him for so long.
Pan was trying to convince Henry of just how wonderful Neverland is- there are no parents telling you what to do, you can do anything you like. He demonstrated this by showing him some of the Lost Boys playing mumbly peg. Only a few of them had lost fingers.
Next he armed Henry with a crossbow, p[laced an apple atop Felix’s head and told Henry to shoot. Of course the arrow was tipped poison to add motivation not to miss. At the last moment, Henry turned and shot at Pan but Pan snatched the arrow from midair and laughed.
The two boys have a heart to heart talk and Pan explains that magic is dying everywhere. Henry has the heart of the truest believer. Born of true love and descendent from the Dark One, it is Henry who is truly the savior. Pan wants him to restore magic to the world. To prove it, he hands Henry the scroll with Henry’s portrait drawn long ago.
Will Henry buy into this? Is he capable of restoring magic to the world and if he is, will he do it? Tune in next week when “Once Upon A Time” returns on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m.
