Once Upon a Time - A Wondrous Place
While Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) attempt to cheer up Emma (Jennifer Morrison), who wrongly believes her fiance fled Storybooke of his own free will, Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) finds himself trapped in the Enchanted Forest aboard the Nautilus. Hook won't find his way home by the end of this episode, but his attempt to do so will provide some closure for other characters in an episode that offers the return of several familiar faces. With the help of both Hook and Ariel (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), Jasmine (Karen David) and Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz) will face off against Jafar (Oded Fehr) one final time and the princess will save Agrabah.
Unable to defeat Emma, Gideon (Giles Matthey) puts his new plan into action here. First exiling Hook from Storybrooke and then playing on Emma's emotional state to get his hands on his tears, Gideon acquires the tears of the Savior. While the villain's plan isn't clear, it does seem he has shifted his focus from defeating Emma to forcing the Savior to take out his true enemy: the Black Fairy (Jaime Murray).
