Back in Storybrooke David makes Mary Margaret leave baby Neal with Belle so they could have a special night out. A really cool scene in this episode was when David and Mary Margaret go to the sheriff station to get the walkie talkies, David then mentions that no matter where they are they’re reachable even if their in Asgard. For those who didn’t know, Josh Dallas (David) played Fanral in Thor, and Thor’s home is Asgard. I thought that was a cool tribute!
