Once Upon A Time: Jefferson's Happy Ending

Man, sometimes I wish this could just be The Jefferson Show.

As much as I loved all this:

What I really loved was all this:

Henry goes to visit Jefferson because everyone's only idea for finding Snow and Emma is to ask Jefferson. Jefferson once again says he's got no magic hat and thus no magic solution. What he does have is evidence that his poor daughter not only remembers him, but she's looking for him.

Unfortunately, Jefferson's a big ole' guilty, angst-ridden, chicken.

He doesn't want to go find Grace because he feels horrible about leaving her in the first place. As he should. But he's waited and worked for soooo long to get her back - how could he just wuss out when he knows she's looking for him? Lame, Jeff. Lame.

Henry agrees that it's lame and talks some common sense into him. And finally, at the end of the episode, like a year after this became the most heartbreaking storyline of OUAT, Jefferson creepily steps out from behind a tree and calls out to Grace.

He's got his worried, self-hating face on. The I'm-so-sorry-I-left-you-please-forgive-me-I-missed-you-so-much-I'm-a-horrible-dad face.

And of course Grace is thrilled to see her papa. It's like THE most adorable thing in the history of things. I love Jefferson. I love this story. I love angst. And I'm glad there was a clip of Sebastian Stan in next week's promo because every time he shows up, I expect it to be the last time I see him for a while.

So yay!! Hugs! Happiness! Jefferson and Grace, reunited at last. Smiles galore.
