* EnemyMine: Maleficent teams up with Emma and Regina to stop Gold in exchange for them finding her daughter. However, it's heavily implied that she plans to kill the Charmings once Emma reunites her with Lily. Thankfully for them, the next episode subverts this as when her daughter arrives she changes her mind and by the end of the episode is no longer one of the [[BigBad Big Bads]].

* InternalReveal: To go with Regina telling everyone last episode, in this one Robin gets to find out Marian's real identity.



* MoralityChain: ''Regina'' manages to be this to Emma. Hook also speaks of this as to how she can stay on the right path (and what is keeping him on his).

Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal:
** Lily knows who and what she is (and why), and wants revenge on the Charmings...and it's because the Apprentice sought her out and told her.
** Zelena, thanks to her disguise as Marian, is now pregnant with Robin Hood's baby.


* LonelyFuneral: For Cruella, with only Gold and the Author in attendance (and a plain wooden coffin). One might have expected at least Maleficent to be there. Then again, Cruella did admit to leaving her daughter to die in the woods right before her death.

* OrphansPlotTrinket: Lily now has a necklace made from the shell of the egg she hatched in.



* PunnyName: Lily's fake name at work is Starla. She has a birthmark shaped like a star.



* ThereAreNoCoincidences: At least not in the case of Emma and Lily--as the Sorcerer himself says, the two of them are bound together forever (thanks to both the nature of the spell and the former's darkness being placed in the latter) and thus will keep being drawn together. Lampshaded by both Regina (referencing her having adopted the son of the Savior) and Emma. Subverted a bit, though, since while Emma and Lily's first meeting and the one shown in the flashback happened on their own, it seems very clear that Lily and Emma living near each other as adults is due to the Apprentice's information.

Added DiffLines:

* TraumaCongaLine: Since she met Emma, Lily's life included the following - being kicked out of her adoptive home, falling in with a drug addict boyfriend, becoming an accomplice to a robbery, discovering she was from another world and separated from her mother because of a mistake someone else made, having to hide under a fake name...and there's still a lot of years we ''don't'' know about.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathGlare: Emma gives quite an example to Gold and the Author from afar when they are at Cruella's funeral.


* EnemyMine: Maleficent teams up with the others to stop Gold. However it's heavilly implied that she plans to kill the Charmings once Emma reunites her with Lily.
* EvilVsEvil: Maleficent has abandoned Gold after Cruella's death and throws her lot in with the others so Emma can find her daughter. But Gold being Gold, this actually works out in his favor.

* BeingGoodSucks: Emma can't kill an innocent (or an old friend), and instead makes the tough choice of sparing Lily and trying to fix her life as atonement for what her parents did. But since Lily herself said that doing this would let her destroy everyone in Storybrooke, and Maleficent would be happy to help her punish the Charmings in particular, Emma has just set herself up for a future conflict when she might have to kill Lily anyway.



* ContinuityNod: Emma's ability to find people is brought up by Maleficent, and her ability to tell when people are lying returns. Also, the wolf that drove her off the road when she tried to leave Storybrooke back in Season 1 appears again. (The fact it was connected to Graham, and Regina was sitting right there and dismissing it, is [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom a separate issue]].)
