"Changelings" is the ninth episode of the sixth season of ABC's Once Upon a Time and the one-hundredth and twentieth episode of the series overall. It aired on November 27, 2016. It was written by David H. Goodman & Brian Ridings and directed by Mairzee Almas.

Synopsis

In a Fairy Tale Land flashback, Rumple collects Jack and Jill’s son as bait to lure a powerful being to him. Back in Storybrooke, Gold tells the Evil Queen that she must kill Zelena, and the EQ makes a decision that will change her relationship with her sister forever.  When Belle discovers Gold’s plans for their son, she convinces Hook and Emma to help her steal squid ink that can immobilize him, and, as a result, Belle is left to make a sacrifice that will affect the lives of everyone in Storybrooke. Meanwhile, Jasmine finds a genie-less lamp that she hopes to use to save Agrabah, and Aladdin finds a way to be her hero.

Plot

Opening sequence

A swing set from the Dream World is featured in the forest.

In the Characters' Past

At Rumplestiltskin's castle, Belle is stunned to see Rumplestiltskin bring a child back with him, but as she asked questions, he made her stop before he left again. While reading Her Handsome Hero Belle calms the baby down as she plots to track down the parents. When she entered his secret room, she read a scroll, but Rumple was on to her and traps Belle in the room and disappear with the baby. She is then rescued by the Blue Fairy, who enlisted Belle to save the child before he can use it as a way to seek revenge on the Black Fairy, who like Rumple, was known to take children.

That night in the forest, Rumple summoned The Black Fairy and placed squid ink on her. He questioned her about abandoning babies, when she suddenly realized that the baby he was referring to was Rumplestiltskin himself, as it turned out that he is her son. When Belle arrived, the Black Fairy distracted Rumplestiltskin and left him guessing about why she abandoned him. Later on, Belle returned the baby back to a couple, revealed to be Jack and Jill, as Rumplestiltskin watched.

In Storybrooke

In the present day at a undisclosed location, Gold chases down and captured a nun, and the Evil Queen has shown up to witness what he planned to do to her, as she is aware of his hatred towards fairies. As Gold reminds the Evil Queen that she is supposed to kill Zelena on his behalf, he proceeds to toss magical dust on the fairy, causing her to age immediately, which he wants to serve as a message to the fairies. This has Belle more worried after seeing the aged nun and knowing that he'll use everything to to take their child away. While doing research on how to stop Gold, Belle comes across a book and as she opens it a red string appears on the floor that matches the page on the book and she followed it to her son, who tells her the answer was in front of her, and suddenly wakes up on top of the book, realizing that she was dreaming while researching for the answer.

In the meantime, Jasmine tells Snow that she is nervous about the magic lamp, assuming that a genie's magic could help her find Agrabah but fears what the genie will want in return. She decides to summon the genie anyway, but when she rubs the lamp, all that comes out are two cuffs, implying that the genie was freed. Aladdin then puts the cuffs on, turning himself into a genie instead. Around the same time, the Evil Queen confronted Zelena and is ready to kill her, but is stopped by Regina, who not only takes the heart away from her other half, but tells her that Gold is using her. Regina allowed the The Evil Queen to get away for now as she is aware that her heart has a dark hole inside of her. Even after saving Zelena's life, Regina still can't forgive her, while The Evil Queen confronted Gold, and the partnership dissolves between them.

The book that Belle slept on captures the attention of Hook as the book is written in Squid ink, and suggests that he and Emma take care of the situation. When they arrived to the Pawn Shop, Hook provoked Gold's anger to allow Emma to use the ink on him. However, just as they were searching the shop, Emma's visions resurfaced and hand started to shake again, and when they checked on Gold, he disappeared, ready to confront Belle with the aging dust, telling Belle that he thinks their son may be the only person who could ever love him and is willing to do anything to steal their child from her. However, Gold started having second thoughts after Belle tells him that she might also lose him forever.

At Granny's, Belle, Emma, and Hook have a conversation. As Emma tells Hook that a new vision involving her death has appeared, Belle drops her mug on the ground, revealing that the tea she was drinking was a spell, which causes her pregnancy to accelerate and she goes into labor. As Emma and the fairies help Belle deliver, she finds herself again in the dream world talking to her son, who gives his mother a message, “you know what you must do." As Belle successfully delivers the baby, she asked Mother Superior to make a request to be his fairy godmother and to take him far away from Storybrooke, where he will be safe from Gold. Belle then named her son Gideon in honor of her favorite book hero before Mother Superior sends the child away. When Gold, who prevented to enter by a protection spell placed on the nunnery by Emma and the Fairies until the baby was delivered, arrived to see his son, he became furious with her as she refused to tell him what his name was and where he went, but vows to find him.

When Gold returns to his shop, the Evil Queen is waiting and tells him that she was responsible placing the spell in Belle’s tea that resulted in her pregnancy to accelerate. The Evil Queen tells Gold that he just “made an enemy” of her, but he countered that she is merely a pawn in his game, adding vengeance against the Evil Queen to his new list of vows, but not before she leaves with a message about the way Fairies make great mothers (now she knows about the Black Fairy being Gold's mother), then he throws everything to the ground. Finally, after Hook tells her that Regina reversed the aging spell on the nun, Emma tells Hook that she feels stronger than ever, ready to confront her vision, returned to the shop, where she finds the sword that will kill her in her vision and takes it.
