The Black Fairy's wand is used to return Pan and Henry to the right bodies. ("Going Home")

After the villainous Peter Pan swaps bodies with Henry and proceeds to steal and enact the Dark Curse, Gold surmises that the only way to stop the townspeople from being doomed is to steal the curse scroll and have Regina - the original caster - tear it up, thereby undoing the original curse entirely and effectively nullifying Pan's. To steal the scroll back, they're going to have to get Henry and Pan back into their own bodies, and the only thing powerful enough to do this is the Black Fairy's wand. Tinker Bell explains how, years ago, Blue confiscated the Black Fairy's wand due to her using it to do evil, and she, David, Hook and Neal go to the local convent to retrieve it.

Hook believes that her magic should have returned after Zelena's defeat, but she insists that it hasn't. They go to Rumplestiltskin for help and he promises to help them get back to the future using a wand that can perform any magic that's ever been done. However, when they return to him, he reveals that only the person who used the magic can recreate it, meaning Emma and Hook are trapped in the past since neither one of them has magic. He proceeds to lock them in his vault along with the wand and, after admitting that Storybrooke is indeed her home and that she needs to get back there to be with her family, Emma finds her magic returning. The wand starts to glow and she's able to reopen the time portal so that she can Hook can go home. Rumple nearly stops her, wanting to know what becomes of his son, but soon lets her go and drinks a forgetting potion so as to not spoil the future for himself.

Zelena 501
Zelena's desire for happiness is exploited by the heroes. ("The Dark Swan")

On his death bed, the Apprentice passes on his wand, encouraging the heroes to use it to find Merlin so that they can destroy the Darkness which has taken root inside Emma. He explains that it needs to be wielded with both light and dark magic, and seeing as how it's already filled with the sufficient light magic, it needs someone dark if it's going to summon a portal. When the Apprentice finally dies, Regina picks the wand up off the floor and tries to use it, but it doesn't work due to her being too redeemed. As Hook points out, they need someone Wicked, but his plan to free Zelena backfires when she steals the wand and uses it to summon a cyclone to take her and her unborn child back to Oz. However, Regina slaps an anti-magic cuff on her sister's wrist and steals the wand back, then using it to redirect the cyclone to the Enchanted Forest so that they can find Emma.

While the Wicked Witch likes being appreciated, she decides she'd rather be in her cell than helping the Dark Swan. ("The Bear and the Bow") Zelena is later set free and tries to take over Storybrooke as its new Mayor. However, Regina confronts her with the Apprentice's wand. Zelena points out that Regina wasn't powerful enough to wield it the last time she tried, but Regina points out in turn that, the last time, she didn't believe in herself - but now she does, and so does the entire town. She proceeds to poof she and her sister to the clock tower and summon a cyclone which sucks Zelena out the window and back to Oz. ("Swan Song") Mother Superior tries using her wand to defend herself against Zelena following her return, but doesn't get the chance to use it. ("Our Decay") Zelena once again wields the Apprentice's wand to open a portal door back to the Enchanted Forest so that Merida and all the Camelot folk can go home. However, the portal sucks she, Snow, David and Hook to an unknown realm, and the wand snaps in the process.
