Wow! The action really took off in last Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time. The upcoming episode, Second Star to the Right, looks like it latches on to the momentum from last week and builds on it. Further intrigue on the Greg and Tamara front (still not sure whose side Hook’s on other than his own) and it also looks like we’ll get more action from the Gold and Lacey/Belle front. The fact that Rumple’s true love is now on Team Evil kind of got dropped in the last episode, but it looks like it will be explored more this week. Honestly, this twist might be the best of many new subplots.
For certain, it looks like we can expect Emma and the Charmings out looking for Regina, who is being tortured or possibly having her magic removed by Greg and Tamara, and more back story on Neil and Neverland. Other teases in interviews have hinted at a return to the idea of Henry posing a threat to Gold and a possible character death. However, the creators of Once Upon a Time do love messing with fans, so both of those should be taken with a ginormous grain of salt. Meanwhile, check out the promo and pictures!
Emma, Mary Margaret and David go in search of Regina when they discover that she – along with some magic beans – have gone missing. But against Neal’s protests, Emma still believes that Tamara had something to do with Regina’s disappearance; and Mr. Gold contemplates telling Lacey the truth about his ability to conjure magic. Meanwhile, after Rumplestiltskin abandons his son and lets him travel alone through a portal, young Bae finds himself back in 19th century London and is taken in by the Darling family — befriending their daughter Wendy.
