Tamara and Greg take Hook to the clock tower and remove his hood. They tell him that they want him to do a job for them. When Hook says that he's killed Rumplestiltskin and his work is done, Greg and Tamara drag him to the window and hand him a telescope.

Episode Quotes
Regina: Rumplestiltskin.
Rumplestiltskin: Well, it seems you've taken to power quite well. Gives your cheeks a nice rosy color.

Regina: I offer these peasants a fortune, and still they protect Snow White. Why are they loyal to her and not me, hmm? I am their queen.
Rumplestiltskin: You did just slaughter an entire village. Maybe that's why they call you "The Evil Queen."

Regina: When she is gone, when Snow is dead, then they will see my kindness.
Rumplestiltskin: Through the charred remains of their homes, yes. I--I'm sure it will be perfectly clear.

Hook: You ever wonder if this constant pursuit for revenge is the reason that nobody cares for us. I mean, when all this is over and I know that the Crocodile is dead, for good and all, I'll have nothing to look forward to. My life will be empty. Revenge may sate your being, but don't misunderstand me, my dear. It's an end, not a beginning.
