Sharp, swift, it twists. It moves up, into her throat. It beats faster than it has for many years.

It can't be. It just can't be. Gold's son is Neal.

Neal. The man who had deserted her years ago, let her go to prison. Henry's …

Oh God. Henry. How would she tell Henry?

It thumps against her chest, her ribs. Her breathing comes short, fast. Her chest grows smaller, gripping it; squeezing it ever more tightly, holding it ever more closely until she can hardly breathe.

Rumpelstiltskin's son.

Did he know who she was, when they met? And Henry …

She pushes herself to her feet, staring at the man opposite. So much rushes through her but one thing is constant.

Neal is Gold's son.

Neal is Gold's son. So Henry is Gold's grandson.
