Zelena points out in turn that she's very much alive and that she brought a way home, and Hades wonders if she's planning to just leave her daughter down there. They spin round, back to back, ready to face whatever monster may be awaiting them... only for a tiny terrier to emerge from a nearby bush.

Various artifacts can be seen strewn all around until finally a familiar voice calls out, "Looking for me?" It's Dorothy, and she's wielding a crossbow. As the two of them continue to trek, Mulan orders Ruby to tell her everything she knows about this land.

Ruby refuses to let anyone talk to her like that in her diner, but the Blind Witch points out that it's not hers - not yet.

"It's hard to be a savior when no one wants you to save them," Hades whispers to Emma, then finally leaving with what's left of Dorothy's aunt in tow.

Rumple points out that she was trying to protect their child and she stipulates that if Hades had actually destroyed the contract then maybe she could live with what she did; "But he found a loophole and I darkened my soul, Rumple, just... just to save you." She then turns to David, saying that he should take the werewolf's hand and hold tight, and Snow looks sad to have to see her husband go. Snow tells him that when he gets home he is to tell Neal that she will be there as fast as she can, but David was actually hoping that she could tell him that for him. The latter says that there's only one way to find out: if she tries.

I've been looking for someone like her." "What are you looking for?" Mulan, keep the cauldron going," Ruby insists, but Dorothy assures that she can handle herself.

Hades believes that it must have been quite wicked for her to chase her all the way down to the Underworld, but Zelena reveals that "wicked" doesn't even begin to describe it, and all of the goodwill she's earned with Regina will evaporate the moment she learns the truth of what she did to their friend.

Ruby was wedged back into the picture with mixed results. She makes clear that there's nothing to be scared of and tries to prove it by reaching out to Toto, but this only makes him run away into the dark woods.
