In this episode, Emma Swan suspects Mr. Gold is planning to seek vigilante justice when a cat burglar robs his house. Meanwhile, Mary Margaret plans a special girls' night out on Valentine's Day with Ruby and Ashley, a fateful deal made between Rumpelstiltskin and Belle is revealed – in which she gives up her freedom to save her village from the horrors of the Ogre Wars; the episode was directed by Milan Cheylov.

In the Enchanted Forest, the Ogre Wars continue but are not going well for the lands controlled by Sir Maurice. Rumplestiltskin arrives and agrees to aid the battle in exchange for Maurice's daughter, Belle to be his servant. Belle's fiancée, her father are against the terms but Belle agrees. At his castle, Rumplestiltskin gives Belle a list of tasks, including skinning the children that he hunts for their pelts. At this Belle drops and chips a teacup in shock, but he explains that it is a joke and doesn't mind about the chipped cup; as time goes by, Rumplestiltskin and Belle develop a strong bond with each other. After a few months of living with him, Belle asks the dark one why she found children's clothing upstairs. Rumplestiltskin tells her it belonged to his son whom he lost along with his wife. Gaston arrives to take Belle back but Rumplestiltskin turns him into a rose and presents it to her as a gift; when asked about Gaston, Belle says. She left him because she wanted to be heroic and there are not many chances for women to be heroic.
Rumplestiltskin asks Belle to go into town to buy more straw, she cannot believe he trusts her to come back. Rumplestiltskin says; as Belle is walking down the road, she runs into The Evil Queen, who asks her if she is running from someone. Belle admits the man she is leaving is overcome by evil yet she loves him; the Evil Queen offers the solution: true love's kiss will break the curse. Belle returns to Rumplestiltskin's castle and the Dark one asks, she replies that she wasn't going to return but something changed her mind. After a moment of silence between the two, they both share true love's kiss, the magic starts to turn him back into an ordinary man, but he becomes furious and shakes off the magic, accusing Belle of conspiring with The Evil Queen. Rumplestiltskin yells in a rage that no one will love him, The Evil Queen will never take away his power, he throws Belle in his dungeon and smashes every cup against the wall but he cannot bring himself to destroy the chipped one. Once he has cooled off, he tells Belle to leave because his powers are more important to him than she is.
Belle admonishes him for not believing. She warns him that he will regret his actions when all he has is a chipped cup. A month The Evil Queen appears, she tells him that she had nothing to do with Belle's actions and informs him that upon Belle's return to her home, she had been shunned by her village for her association with Rumplestiltskin and Gaston's disappearance and was subsequently imprisoned and tortured by her father. She killed herself, leaping off the tower she was kept prisoner in. Rumplestiltskin is devastated and replaces a treasured gold chalice with the chipped cup and weeps over his loss.

Luigi Paulino Alfredo Francesco Antonio Balassoni, known by the stage name Louie Bellson, was an American jazz drummer. He was a composer, arranger and jazz educator, is credited with pioneering the use of two bass drums. Bellson was an internationally acclaimed artist who performed in most of the major capitals around the world. Bellson and his wife and singer Pearl Bailey, had the second highest number of appearances at the White House. Bellson was a vice president at a drum company, he was inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1985. Bellson started playing drums at three years of age. At 15, he pioneered using two bass drums at the same time. At age 17, he triumphed over 40,000 drummers to win the Slingerland National Gene Krupa contest. After graduating from high school, he worked with big bands throughout the 1940s, with Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, Duke Ellington. In 1952, he married jazz singer Pearl Bailey. During the 1950s, he played with the Dorsey Brothers, Jazz at the Philharmonic, acted as Bailey's music director, recorded as a leader for Norgran Records and Verve Records.
Over the years, his sidemen included Ray Brown and Conte Candoli, Chuck Findley, John Heard, Roger Ingram, Don Menza, Blue Mitchell, Larry Novak, Nat Pierce, Frank Rosolino, Bobby Shew, Clark Terry, Snooky Young. In an interview in 2005 with Jazz Connection magazine, he cited as influences Jo Jones, Sid Catlett, Chick Webb. "I have to give just dues to two guys who got me off on the drums – Big Sid Catlett and Jo Jones. They were my influences. All three of us realized what it influenced a lot of us. We all three looked to Jo as the'Papa' who did it. Gene helped bring the drums to the foreground as a solo instrument. Buddy was a great natural player, but we have to look back at Chick Webb's contributions, too."During the 1960s, he returned to Ellington's orchestra for Emancipation Proclamation Centennial stage production, My People in and for A Concert of Sacred Music, sometimes called The First Sacred Concert. Ellington called these concerts "the most important thing I have done."Bellson's album The Sacred Music of Louie Bellson and the Jazz Ballet appeared in 2006.
In May 2009, Francine Bellson told The Jazz Joy and Roy syndicated radio show, "I like to call'how the Master used two maestros,'" adding, "When did his sacred concert back in 1965 with Louie on drums, he told Louie that the sacred concerts were based on'in-the-beginning,' the first three words of the bible." She recalled how Ellington explained to Louie that "in the beginning there was lightning and thunder and that's you!" Ellington exclaimed. Both Ellington and Louie, says Mrs. Bellson, were religious. "Ellington told Louie,'You ought to do a sacred concert of your own' and so it was," said Bellson, adding, "'The Sacred Music of Louie Bellson' combines symphony, big band and choir, while'The Jazz Ballet' is based on the vows of Holy Matrimony..."On December 5, 1971 he took part in a memorial concert at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall for drummer Frank King. This tribute show featured Buddy Rich and British drummer Kenny Clare; the orchestra was led by Irish trombonist Bobby Lamb and American trombonist Raymond Premru.
A few years Rich paid Bellson a compliment by asking him to lead his band on tour while he was temporarily disabled by a back injury. Bellson accepted; as a prolific creator of music, both written and improvised, his compositions and arrangements embrace jazz, jazz/rock/fusion, romantic orchestral suites, symphonic works and a ballet. Bellson was a poet and a lyricist, his only Broadway venture, was a resounding flop that closed after three performances. As an author, he published more than a dozen books on drums and percussion, he was at work with his biographer on a book chronicling his career and bearing the same name as one of his compositions, "Skin Deep". In addition, "The London Suite" was performed at the Hollywood Pilgrimage Bowl before a record-breaking audience; the three-part work includes a choral section in which a 12-voice choir sings lyrics penned by Bellson. Part One is a collaboration with Jack Hayes. In 1987, at the Percussive Arts Society convention in Washington, D. C.

This work was recorded by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in England, was released by the Swedish label BIS. Bellson was known throughout his career to conduct drum and band clinics at high schools and music stores. Bellson maintained a tight schedule of clinics and performances of both big bands and small bands in colleges and concert halls.
