Mean Right Hook by Michele Mills
While tending to birdhouses, Henry is caught off guard by Regina, who shows him a magic bean she intends to use to bring the both of them back to the Enchanted Forest. Upset that the townspeople kept the magic beans a secret from her, Regina informs him about a "fail-safe" that can erase Storybrooke. At first, Henry believes she means to wipe out the town and bring everyone to the Enchanted Forest, however, he is shocked when she admits she actually wants to let everyone die so they can be together without their interference. Henry threatens to warn the townspeople about her plan, but she cast a spell to erase his memory of the entire conversation. Later, in the apartment, Henry overhears Emma telling Mary Margaret a theory that Tamara is the "her" August was trying to warn them about. With Emma, they have a stakeout in the car outside of the inn to wait for Neal and Tamara to leave the premises. When Henry talks about having wanted to experience new things in the Enchanted Forest, he discovers from Emma that there is a way to go there, despite that she keeps denying it. After Neal and his lover finally leave, Emma begins pick locking Tamara's room. Once the door is open, she instructs Henry to keep watch and if someone comes, he must kick the door. Distracted, Henry doesn't see Neal return until it's too late and hastily begins kicking the door. Neal figures out something is up and bursts into the room. Emma confesses she believes Tamara is the "her" August spoke of. Despite how far-fetched the situation sounds, Neal allows Emma to look under the floorboards. She finds nothing incriminating and abruptly leaves with Henry. While dining on ice cream in the apartment, Henry affirms that he believes Emma is right about Tamara. ("The Evil Queen")
Over the course of eight months, Emma dates a man named Walsh, who Henry takes a liking to. One night, Emma is proposed to by Walsh, though she is hesitant to say yes. Henry urges Emma to accept, since Walsh has proven himself to be a kind and loving man, and won't leave her like his biological father did. In the morning, Henry sends a text to Walsh asking him to come over for dinner at eight o'clock. Later, Emma realizes that he is right and the past is keeping her from looking forward, which Henry humorously takes to mean she is going to marry Walsh. Henry mentions the pre-scheduled date she and Walsh will be having and has already decided to sleep over at a friend's house so they can have privacy. The following day, he learns Emma did not accept Walsh's marriage proposal. As Henry begins prepping to head off to school, Emma suggests that they take time off and go on a trip. A guest arrives at the apartment, who Henry recognizes as the same man that came to their door as well as the person Emma had arrested for assaulting her. She introduces him to Henry as Killian, a client from work. Shortly after, the three travel via car to the town of Storybrooke. ("New York City Serenade")
Cruella takes Henry to look for the quill, and she encourages him to sense the quill, as he should be able to since he's the Author. Spotting something in the woods, he ends up investigating the area himself and runs into the Apprentice, who tries to talk him out of reviving Cruella. The Apprentice warns him against creating new stories, and that he must only use the quill to record them. Henry denies he wants the quill to help Cruella and actually needs it for his family because he is tired of being unable to help them. The Apprentice then reveals the quill is in the Sorcerer's mansion in Underbrooke, and to gain access, he'll need to steal a key from the sheriff. Before disappearing, the elderly man expresses hopes that Henry will do the right thing and only use the quill for recording stories since his unfinished business depends on it. With his family also looking for the storybook, Henry uses the situation to his advantage, telling them the book is in the mansion, as his ticket to getting in and secretly nabbing the quill. Once Snow retrieves the key and everyone goes into the mansion, both Regina and Emma make Henry stay behind as lookout, while everyone else searches for the book. While no one is looking, he wanders deeper into the mansion, finding the quill and inkpot hidden in the inside of a lamp. After a return to the apartment, Henry disappears upstairs, refusing to talk to anyone, as he contemplates what to do with the quill. Despite not knowing what his grandson is thinking of, David encourages him into remembering that he has a family who cares about him, and they're always there if he needs someone to talk to. Taking David's advice, Henry reveals the quill to his family, admitting that he wanted it to be heroic for the wrong reasons. Now, however, he intends to use the quill for what it was meant for, recording stories, namely Hades' story. ("The Brothers Jones")
The next morning at 6 AM, Henry sees Roni inconspicuously walking towards the bar, and after asking her some questions, Roni sheepishly admits she was catching up with an old boyfriend last night. He shares the strange night he had at Jacinda's apartment, where Lucy, at first, tried to bring him and her mother together and later completely shifted her attitude towards him. As Roni opens the bar, she invites him inside for breakfast and support. After Henry receives a text from Ivy, he heads over to Belfrey Towers, where he finds her sorting through Victoria's many belongings. Ivy shares with him her confusion over what to do with herself now that the mother she hated is dead and the fact Victoria had loved her all this time without her knowing it. Having no one else to turn to in this difficult time, she considers Henry the only one who understands her as he has lost family like her and perhaps they could fix each other. She kisses him, but Henry pulls away, suggesting to her that this isn't what she needs right now. Ivy believes otherwise and tries to kiss him again, however, Henry reasons he has been where she is and done stupid things to drown out his feelings when his family died. Ivy is upset at his insinuation of her, but he explains she's still in the grieving process and trying to hold onto something as a distraction. Despite how alone Ivy feels, he persuades her to reach out to the remaining family she has left, Jacinda and Lucy, even if she feels they hate her because they could actually help her figure out the person she is meant to be now. At Henry's apartment later, Ivy shows up with a box of mochi to thank him for his earlier advice as she has now mended fences with Jacinda. She expresses a desire to continue fixing her mistakes and asks for his help with finding her other sister, Anastasia, by being the hero he is deep down inside. ("Knightfall")
The other thing they added though, was not just that you will be deported if they would give you a year hard labor. So not only would you be deported, but they would give you what's essentially a criminal punishment. Now this is where it gets interesting. So this goes before the Supreme Court. Wong Wing says you can't do this to me without a trial by jury. You're doing you're gonna deport me and you're going to have me serve a year of hard labor. I should have a jury of my peers or a jury in general convict me. Supreme Court agreed with him half the way he still gets deported. But they don't give them the one year hard labor because this is the interesting point. They said well, the heart one year hard labor that is a criminal punishment, and the only way the federal government is allowed to exercise so much control over this one particular area, namely immigration is because immigration itself is not a crime. So being present unlawfully is not a criminal offense, and you cannot use it. But here's the other Flipside. They can't give you a one year. hard labor, hard labor, but being removed is not considered punishment. It's called it's just an administrative procedure. So there is a weird balance here, which is in the area where the federal government has this much absolute power. It can't therefore exercise these kinds of criminal punishments and where it can exercise, criminal punishments I give to your hard labor or put you in jail, then you're entitled to the the amendments, that you have a right to a jury, right to an attorney, or you're supposed to be a nice little bounce. You have this much power. You can't do this to folks, if you can do this to folks, then you'd have protections in these ways. Crimmmigration messes this up. And we've allowed it to slowly creep in. It's got three aspects. And typically they're not seen as coming. When you see each of these by themselves. You're kind of like what's kind of weird, but if you see them functioning as a system, it's actually very scary. in one respect crimmigration is when these criminal convictions you're convicted of a crime, then have immigration consequences. The second one is kind of the opposite where immigration violations come to have criminal punishments. And the third aspect is when tactics that are allowed to be used for either law enforcement or for immigration get muddled together, and so you can use one for the other. You can, for example, if you if you are part of a part of one of these secure community programs, and you're a police officer, you can stop someone on suspected immigration violations. And then if you find something else on them that then you can use it for criminal prosecution. You see, this creates this kind of way of circumventing a lot of your protections. You said, Well, here I'm act, I'm acting as a proxy as a kind of deputized immigration enforcement agent. And in these duties where I have these rights to stop anyone asking for their papers, I found this other thing, which I would have not been able to find if I was just acting as a regular police officer. A couple things really quickly. Here's some of the troubling statistics about that first aspect, criminal convictions having immigration consequences. Well, the first hundred years between 1875 pay jacked up until 1980, you had only 70,000 immigrants deported for criminal offenses. In 2013. Alone, you had over 200,000. Now what why is the case because the laws have been changing the rely on really vague terms such as crimes involving moral turpitude? What do you think that means? Whatever each of you think it means. That's what different judges thinks there is no real defined definition. aggravated felony. It sounds terrible. But it could be it turns out to be very much anything else. And the worst part is it started getting used retroactively. So you had folks who would not have been who there was, there was a case of a man who was a Cambodian refugee from Cambodia. Come to United States at the age of one or two. Does something stupid, hangs out with the wrong folks, finds himself in a shopping mall. He's about to get jumped by a rival gang. He takes his gun shoots it in the air doesn't shoot anybody just shoots like a warning shot to get people away from him. That was stupid. Does six months of prison pays you know pays his dues to society at the age of 34 applies to become a US citizen because he hadn't done that yet applies become a US citizen. This law been passed in 96 He goes, he applies. I said, Well, you know what, 15 years ago, you did something really stupid. You are now removable. This this man who left Cambodia at the age of two gets deported back to Cambodia. 041b061a72
