Meanwhile Rumple, stripped of his powers by the cell he inhabits shares a dream with Belle - a warning of sorts. Tiger Lily - with Blue's "help" tries to fulfill her duties as fairy godmother. From the premise of, 'What if the Bone's WishRumple finds are not all Belle's.' (And therefore is Alternate-Alternate Universe).
